Son nom vient du latin aprilis, qui était le nom donné à ce mois par les Romains. Selon le poète Ovide, Aprilis est dédié à Vénus: "Nous voilà arrivés au quatrième mois où on thonore particulièrement: tu sais, Vénus, que le poète et le mois sont à toi." Il justifie cette attribution dabord par la proximité avec Mars le mois et le dieu et par le fait que la gens Iulia, qui est notamment la gens de Jules César, prétendaient faire remonter les origines de leur famille à la déesse. Il ajoute que "Quirinus affirma toujours que Mars et Vénus étaient ses parents et il mérita dêtre cru ; pour que ses descendants ne pussent lignorer, il voua aux dieux de sa famille deux mois successifs.". Ovide justifie létymologie grecque Aphrodite du mois par la forte présence grecque dans la Grande-Grèce. Ovide récuse lautre explication par le verbe aperire: "Quelle nest pas la prétention des envieux? Certains voudraient te ravir, ô Vénus, le patronage de ce mois et ils te jalousent. Comme le printemps ouvre alors toutes choses et que se dissipe lâpreté du froid qui resserrait le sol, comme la terre fécondée ouvre son sein, ils disent quavril aprilem est ainsi appelé parce que cest la bonne saison où tout est éclos aperto tempore, mais la bonne Vénus met la main sur ce mois et le revendique.". Le dictionnaire Gaffiot, après avoir relevé son origine peu claire, rapproche aprilis de ladjectif apricus.

Flying Saucers (magazine)
The magazine was first published as Flying Saucers from Other Worlds in 1957, before evolving into Flying Saucers in 1958. The initial title was designed to create confusion with a science fiction magazine Other Worlds, which Palmer also published and which overlapped for two issues. Such confusion may have been designed to overcome the difficulty that a new magazine in a new category would have in finding space on news stands, to help attract readership, or more likely both. The confusion continues to tax magazine collectors to this day. Flying Saucers From Other Worlds was first published in June 1957 and cost 35 cents an issue. The editorial by Ray Palmer on page 4 begins with "This is the first Flying Saucers From Other Worlds. Ray A. Palmer was Editor, Gray Barker was Eastern Editor and August C. Roberts was Photo Editor. Col. Ron Ormond was Western Editor several issues later. The front cover of issue number one was a composite from the movies Forbidden Planet" and "Captive Women". The editorial address was in Amherst, Wisconsin. The magazine itself was published by Palmer Publications, Inc. in Evanston, Illinois. The Flying Saucers From Other Worlds May 1958 Issue No. 29 was the last one by that title. In the July–August 1958 Issue No. 30 the name of the magazine was changed to Flying Saucers, The Magazine of Space Conquest. Ray Palmer was still editor at that time. The title was later changed to Flying Saucers, Mysteries of the Space Age and the magazine continued until June 1976 when it ceased publication.
Rails was a New Zealand-based monthly periodical covering rail transport in New Zealand published by Rails Publishing Ltd from August 1971, which in 1972 changed its name to Southern Press from August 1971 until December 2003. The company was jointly owned by Bob Stott and Robin Bromby; Bob Stott was Editor and ran the editorial content and Robin Bromby was Managing Editor mainly responsible for the business operation. The editor for the entirety of Rails existence was Bob Stott QSM. Robin Bromby was managing editor from 1971 to 1975, at which time Bob and Jan Stott become the owners of the magazine. The magazines existence spanned the final years of central government control of railways in New Zealand the New Zealand Railways Department, corporatisation in the 1980s the New Zealand Railways Corporation, privatisation of the railways in 1993 New Zealand Rail Limited, renamed Tranz Rail in 1995 and finally the purchase of Tranz Rail by Toll Holdings followed by the renationalisation of the rail network in 2003. The magazine was initially printed by the Masterton Printing Company. In 1973 Robin Bromby established the Dunedin office, and the printing was transferred to Allied Press owner of the Otago Daily Times newspaper. There were some difficult moments and, in 1973, the partners agreed to close the magazine to prevent further losses. However, New Zealand Railways was eager to see the magazine continue and committed to regular advertising, the revenue from that making it possible for Rails to survive. The rescue was very much at quarter to midnight; the next edition was about to go to print and the inside cover contained the closure announcement. At the last moment, that announcement was pulled and a full-page photograph of an Invercargill tram substituted. The economics of the magazine were further underpinned by the decision by Stott and Bromby to begin publishing rail books and this ancillary business enabled the company to turn the corner. Rails and editor Bob Stott were often cited as authorities on rail-related subjects in the general news media. Stott continued to comment on railway-related matters after Rails ceased publication, and has had regular opinion columns published in Rails former competitor, Railfan.

Mademoiselle, primarily a fashion magazine, was also known for publishing short stories by noted authors such as Truman Capote, Joyce Carol Oates, William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, James Baldwin, Flannery OConnor, Sylvia Plath, Paul Bowles, Jane Bowles, Jane Smiley, Mary Gordon, Paul Theroux, Sue Miller, Barbara Kingsolver, Perri Klass, Mona Simpson, Alice Munro, Harold Brodkey, Pam Houston, Jean Stafford, and Susan Minot. Julia Cameron was a frequent columnist. The art director was Barbara Kruger. In 1952, Sylvia Plaths short story Sunday at the Mintons won first prize and $500, as well as publication in the magazine. Her experiences during the summer of 1953 as a guest editor at Mademoiselle provided the basis for her novel, The Bell Jar. The August 1961 "college issue" of Mademoiselle included a photo of UCLA senior class president Willette Murphy, who did not realize she was making history as the first African-American model to appear in a mainstream fashion magazine. In the sixties, Mademoiselle magazine was geared" to the smart young woman”. They categorically stated in their editorials that despite their young, maidenly name they were not geared to young teenagers. The majority of their readers may have been in college, in a job, some may have been married. Mademoiselle was interested in reaching mature college freshmen and up, who were being exposed to the greatest literature, facing the greatest moral problems coping with all the complexities of the atomic age. Mademoiselle continued to be a top shelf magazine throughout the eighties and nineties featuring the top models on their covers and in the pages of their editorial sections. In 1993, Elizabeth Crow was appointed editor-in-chief of the magazine. The November 2001 magazine was the final issue. Some of the 93 employees and features moved over to Glamour, also published by Conde Nast. The magazines demise was due to multiple factors, including an editorial inability to update the magazine to appeal to a sufficient audience and an overall decline in advertising revenues across the magazine industry.
