Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne by Katherine Rundell
LONDON – November 17, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne by Katherine Rundell has been named winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2022. The winner was announced by Chair of Judges Caroline Sanderson at a ceremony hosted at the Science Museum and generously supported by The Blavatnik Family Foundation. The announcement was streamed to readers around the world via the Baillie Gifford Prize social media channels.
Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne gives readers a window into the little-known myriad lives the poet John Donne lived. He was a scholar of law, a maritime adventurer, an MP, a priest, the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral – and perhaps the greatest love poet in the history of the English language. Standout scholar Katherine Rundell shows readers the many sides of his life, his obsessions, his blazing words, and his tempestuous Elizabethan times – unveiling Donne as the most remarkable mind and as a lesson in living.
Katherine Rundell is a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, where she works on Renaissance literature. Her bestselling books for children have been translated into more than 30 languages and have won multiple awards. Rundell is also the author of a book for adults, Why You Should Read Children’s Books, Even Though You Are So Old and Wise. She has written for, among others, the London Review of Books, the Times Literary Supplement, the New York Review of Books and The New York Times, largely about books, though sometimes about animals, night climbing and tightrope walking.
The Baillie Gifford Prize aims to recognise and reward the best of non-fiction and is open to authors of any nationality. It covers all non-fiction in the areas of current affairs, history, politics, science, sport, travel, biography, autobiography and the arts. As the winner, Rundell will receive £50,000 along with the £1,000 given to each of the shortlisted authors. Last year’s winner was Patrick Radden Keefe for Empire of Pain, which became a Sunday Times bestseller.
Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne was chosen by this year’s judging panel: writer and Associate Editor of The Bookseller, Caroline Sanderson (chair); writer and science journalist, Laura Spinney; critic and writer for The Observer, Rachel Cooke; BBC journalist and presenter, Clive Myrie; author and New Yorker writer, Samanth Subramanian; and critic and broadcaster, Georgina Godwin.

Sleepwear can significantly enhance the quality of sleep of a person, with breathable fabrics promoting relaxation and regulating the body temperature throughout the night.
MELBOURNE, Australia – November 18, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Leading a healthy lifestyle doesn’t just involve eating right, exercising and reducing stress. Insufficient or poor-quality sleep can result in long-term health consequences. According to Gingerlilly, designer of luxurious women’s sleepwear, the right pyjamas can be a game-changer when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep.
Gingerlilly says the key to good sleep is comfort, and pyjama fabric is an important consideration. Choosing breathable, natural fabrics that are soft and naturally cooling will help to regulate body temperature throughout the night.
Luxurious fabrics such as silk and linen are super soft and breathable, explains Gingerlilly. These natural fabrics have heat and moisture-wicking properties, making them ideal for hot sleepers.
Breathable fabrics are also important for preventing irritation and bacteria build-up, as well as overall discomfort. Bamboo is a surprisingly soft, naturally cooling fabric that is also hypoallergenic with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, plus this eco-friendly material is also gorgeously soft to wear, says Gingerlilly.
Some other quality fabrics ideal for inducing a good night’s sleep include modal, which is made from the pulp from Beech trees and has a super soft, luxurious feel, while viscose is sustainable and great at absorbing sweat. Sustainable and good for the planet, these highly breathable fabrics keep sleepers cool, dry and comfortable, explains Gingerlilly.
The designer, who ships luxurious women’s pyjamas Australia-wide, says there are a few things people should avoid wearing to bed if they want to get a quality sleep. Tight clothing, elastic that’s too tight and bras can cause discomfort and trap body heat.
Dead skin cells are shed while sleeping, which, combined with sweat and the body’s natural oils, can irritate the skin, disrupting sleep. Gingerlilly points out the importance of regularly washing PJs and steering clear of fragrant detergents and fabric softeners that can trigger allergies or rashes, interfering with sleep.
Known for designing luxurious, chic sleepwear and loungewear, Gingerlilly products are made using sustainable fabrics that provide ultimate comfort for sleeping. To discover the best range of pyjamas Australia-wide, visit Gingerlilly online.

Massive Bio, which uses artificial intelligence to match cancer patients to clinical trials, launches “I Have Cancer,” a social media campaign to raise cancer awareness.
NEW YORK – November 17, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
In keeping with its mission to improve the lives of cancer patients, Massive Bio aims to raise mass awareness about cancer, cancer treatments, and clinical research with “I Have Cancer,” the company’s new social media campaign. “I Have Cancer” will focus on the problems experienced by cancer patients and their loved ones while bringing attention to the importance of cancer prevention. The campaign will also provide up-to-date information about oncology clinical trials for cancer patients interested in pursuing innovative new treatments. Massive Bio, based in New York City, uses a proprietary artificial intelligence platform called SYNERGY-AI to match cancer patients to clinical trials.
“This project is very important for society,” says Erkan Terzi, Global Marketing Vice President for Massive Bio and one of the architects of the “I Have Cancer” campaign. “We have cancer awareness, but the problem is how much we understand cancer and cancer patients. Millions of people die from cancer yearly, and everyone is at risk of getting cancer. With this project, we want to raise cancer awareness, show how we can protect ourselves and our loved ones, and provide information about cancer treatments.”
“Clinical milestones include working with physicians, pharmaceutical and genomic testing providers, and hospitals, as well as our network of oncology clinical trial registration opportunities in Europe and South America,” said Çağatay Çulcuoğlu, co-founder, CFO, and COO of Massive Bio. “We have expanded our patient-engagement activities through advocacy groups, webinars, and the publication of Massive Bio magazine, which informs readers about the latest news in cancer research and clinical trials. Now, with our ‘I Have Cancer’ campaign, we aim to be the voice of patients and their families who need support and are not heard but who want to share their experiences and ideas to build a better tomorrow for future generations.”
The “I Have Cancer” campaign, which will launch in November with posts on Massive Bio’s social media channels, will emphasize the theme that cancer patients are not alone. The importance of cancer foundations and associations will also be highlighted in the campaign, carried out simultaneously on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. The campaign will use the hashtags #ihavecancer, #cancerawareness, and #massivebio to help cancer patients and their supporters make their voices heard. The campaign will continue until the end of May.
About Massive Bio
Massive Bio’s mission is to provide access to clinical trials for cancer patients worldwide, regardless of where they live or their financial circumstances. Massive Bio solves bottlenecks in recruiting patients for clinical trials with a unique technology-enabled service and big data platform.
