This month's Notices contains a potpourri of stimulating mathematical ideas. The topics range from gender equity to a hundred-year-old revolution in mathematics thought to the ideas of Wigner about the effectiveness of mathematics. The Scripta Manent this month is about university presses and mathematical publishing. The Doceamus is about teaching with cognitive-demand tasks. Happy reading!--Steven G. Krantz, Editor (pp. )
