Heading
43 Heading Out, Cosmic and Cryptic Poetry and Prose - Roger Golden Brown
Auteur : Roger Golden Brown
Genre : Poetry
Head out into the land of cosmic and cryptic poetry and prose. Feel the longings of the body and soul. Challenge the paradigms of society. Hunger for the natural life on a thriving planet. Seek balance. Look for real sanity and true love. And while you are at, have some fun, why don’t you.

As well as being a wordsmith by nature, a varied life has contributed to Roger’s inspiration. Growing up in the Seattle area, four years in a co-ed private Quaker boarding high school in Pennsylvania, the psychedelic 60’s and the earthy 70’s in western Washington state, a cosmic 80’s in Santa Cruz, California, and traveling and living in Europe have provided fertile grounds for this collection of creative writings and poetry.

Crosswords
46 Travel Tales and Cryptic Crosswords - Peter Waugh
Auteur : Peter Waugh
Genre : Travel & Adventure
Enjoy a travel tale and a cryptic crossword on each of the 53 weekends possible in a year.
Unconventional, quirky and generally light-hearted, the tales range from circumnavigating the globe by cargo/passenger and migrant ships and driving an ageing car from Paris to Tehran over bad roads in winter and mostly at night, to hitchhiking in kilts around Europe. Selling patent medicine in rural Malaya in the early 1960s, surviving an earthquake and its aftermath in Tehran, and hearing of JFK's assassination from a Chinese gangster in Kuala Lumpur all feature.
There are rants about unsatisfactory toilet blocks in caravan parks and travellers who cap one's stories; raves about Star Bars and Star Stays; essays on Currywurst and the town of Condom; and there are more than 150 photos, a few poems and one recipe.
The cryptic crosswords are modelled on those in The Times, but perhaps

47 Cryptic Pregnancy, A Simple Guide To The Condition, Diagnosis, Treatment And Related Conditions - Kenneth Kee
Auteur : Kenneth Kee
Genre : Medical
This book describes Cryptic Pregnancy, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases

This is the first that I have read and wrote about Cryptic pregnancy

I have heard about women who did not know that they were pregnant until they deliver but I did know that it is called Cryptic pregnancy until now.

Cryptic pregnancy is a pregnancy where a pregnant woman is unaware of her pregnancy until labor.
During this pregnancy there is little or no detectable Human chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the mothers system.
Very often, bodily symptoms of pregnancy (nausea, amenorrhea and abdomen swelling) are absent or greatly reduced, and neonates tend to be underweight
In many cases, pregnancy goes undetected also by relatives and doctors.
Cryptic pregnancy differs from to denial of pregnancy, a psychological disorder, where the woman is subconsciously

48 Identification of Cryptic Hosts for Two Inquiline Parasites of the Seed-Harvester Ant Pogonomyrmex and New Localities for P. Anergismus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) (Report) - Southwestern Naturalist
Auteur : Southwestern Naturalist
Genre : Life Sciences
Members of the genus Pogonomyrmex are primarily seed-harvester ants, but the rarely encountered species P. anergismus and P. colei are permanent social parasites (inquilines) that live and reproduce in nests of related congeneric hosts (Parker and Rissing, 2002). These two inquilines apparently have lost the ability to produce workers, such that their continued survival relies on the worker caste of the hosts P. barbatus or P. rugosus. Inquiline queens must gain access to the host colony, coexist with its queen and workers, and then lay eggs that are reared as sexuals by the host workers. Because host colonies possess a highly evolved self-recognition system, social parasites possess a variety of strategies to gain access to the colonies and to exploit resources of hosts (Holldobler and Wilson, 1990). Hosts often are closely related species emphasizing the importance of host-parasite rel

Coercion
50 Cryptic Coercion (Essays) (Column) - Ilina Singh
Auteur : Ilina Singh
Genre : Life Sciences
It's early evening and I imagine that below me, seventeen floors of this anonymous high-rise must be emptying out, workers spun from revolving glass doors into a twilight of routine responsibilities: traffic, transport, what to have for dinner. The eighteenth floor doesn't inspire ivy-covered fantasies about academic nightlife. Psychologists don't get that kind of real estate. Here on the eighteenth floor, I am waiting for a child participant in my interview study on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. There are lots of no-shows in this study. The staff smile at me and rush out, probably wondering why I appear to be guarding the door. I like to meet families as they come in. I don't like them to be greeted by a locked door, to have to pick up the external phone and talk to me through the security system while their ears are still decompressing from the elevator ride. A child can
