    No Guns Life – Deep AND Dumb

    Like ogres and onions, and parfaits too, many of the best anime have layers. Beneath neat high concepts, strong characters, and fun action scenes lie hidden depths, themes and messages, that hardcore fans can uncover and understand upon multiple rewatches, through careful consideration of how the show’s constituent parts work in concert. That might sound intimidating, boring, or pretentious, depending on your tastes; but therein lies the brilliant trick that makes these layered shows so good. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Neon Genesis Evangelion, One Punch Man; these anime are all eminently accessible. They speak to a primal part of our brain that wants to see cool people do cool things and…

    #5 The Mystical Pregnancy (Tropes vs. Women)

    A trope is a common pattern in a story or a recognizable attribute in a character that conveys information to the audience. A trope becomes a cliche when it’s overused. Sadly, some of these tropes often perpetuate offensive stereotypes. One thing I love about speculative fiction is its ability to explore difficult topics. Because of it’s separation from our current timeframe, it can comment on socio-economic and cultural issues in really engaging and interesting ways. But one thing that I’ve learned from watching a lot of science fiction and fantasy television is you never, ever want to get pregnant on TV. Yup. Some of the our most celebrated female characters…

    Can Overweight Pregnant Women Diet to Restrict Their Weight Gain?

    My sister had baby a couple years before I did and she gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy and I did not want to gain 60 pounds. The origins of obesity start in utero so an overweight or obese mom already is conferring on that child an increased risk, so the idea of trying to help prevent that is …the earlier we can start, the better. All too often, we just sort of eat mindlessly and especially it’s sort of common for pregnant women to decide, “I’m eating for two.” Women really only need another 200 or so calories a day, which easily could be achieved by drinking two glasses…
