Janet McKenzie's painting of Jesus has been called blasphemous by thousands of detractors, while admirers say the image brings tears to their eyes. However, the artist from Island Pond, Vt., wasn't expecting either response from her version of Jesus Christ - a dark-skinned figure with masculine and feminine traits. Her oil-on-canvas painting Jesus of the People was a personal expression of how she saw him. "I painted this painting for myself," McKenzie said. The artwork won her the National Catholic Reporter's Jesus 2000 competition, a global search for a new image of Jesus as the millennium approached.

Question: Do I need to order both male and female blueberry plants? Someone told me you can’t have just one. Answer: Blueberry plants are self-fertile (each flower has the necessary male and female parts), however you still should buy more than one variety. That's because a blueberry plant produces more berries and bigger berries when it cross pollinates with a different blueberry variety. See HGIC's publication, "Getting Started with Small Fruit." Its chart lists blueberry varieties that flourish in Maryland and it includes bloom and ripening times.

It sounds like John Waters-meets-bad-science-fiction: The Invasion of the 50-Foot She-Male. But that's just one way of thinking about the gender-bending artwork proposed for the plaza in front of Baltimore's Pennsylvania Station: Jonathan Borofsky's Male / Female, a 51-foot-tall burnished aluminum sculpture of intersecting human figures -- one female and one male -- with a common red neon heart. It also can be seen as a three-dimensional manifesto about human rights, or a peace symbol for troubled times.

Thirty-three weeks pregnant with twins, yet determined to lead her talented University of Maryland women's basketball team into the national championships, coach Brenda Frese - known for energetically pacing the sideline - found a novel way to relieve her aching lower back during a home game last month: She had an office chair rolled onto the gym floor. The result was a powerful visual metaphor for women in the world of sports. Ms. Frese's example, like Paula Radcliffe training through pregnancy and winning the 2007 New York City Marathon, doesn't camouflage - but actually flaunts - the fact that women are physically different than men. It also challenges an assumption that still dogs women today: The female body is athletically inferior to a male body.

Could it be that Neanderthal females achieved an equality that is rare even by today's standards? Some anthropologists make a case that our extinct female cousins hunted alongside the males during an epoch when our own ancestral women were gathering plants and doing other (essential) work. They argue that the appearance of gender roles was critical to humans' eventual domination of the globe - and that the importance of the women of the Pleistocene period has been vastly understated. These assertions, controversial to be sure, play into growing scientific interest in prehistoric sex roles: How did our male and female ancestors divvy up the tasks of getting food, clothing and shelter, and how did those roles shape the evolving species?

Every girls lacrosse coach probably has seen a player bonked with a ball during a shuttle line drill - a fast-paced routine that sharpens passing and catching skills - because the players were talking, not paying attention. It is not that girls don't have quality stick-work. But unlike boys, experienced coaches will tell you, the girls are fulfilling a need to socialize. They will also tell you that is only one difference between coaching boys and girls in any sport, individual or team.
