It’s not hard to understand how pregnancy can be a source of angst and dread. Even in wanted pregnancies, there are very real fears, from the healthy development of the fetus to the specter of maternal and/or fetal death. Women are bombarded with warnings, directions, and horror stories full of “what ifs” and “could happens.” […]
So you think that Torchwood couldn’t break your heart anymore, huh? Not after the season two finale that left two beloved characters dead and Torchwood adrift, right? To borrow from another fantasy series, “Oh, my sweet summer child!”

This episode offers an interesting metaphor about society’s underlying fear of virulent female sexuality with a life […]
So it’s time to send your uterus and/or ovaries away for not toeing the company line. The Internet is full (and I mean full) of stories of women who’ve had the procedure, and there is no shortage of horror stories. I’m here to help.
Arsenic and Losing Face
Scientists are all in a tizzy over the so-called arsenic-based bacteria NASA claims to have found in California’s Mono Lake (which Sara B. briefed us on earlier in the week), and those of us hoping for reassurance that we are not alone may have to take comfort in our well-worn E.T.

So, now that you’ve got your Etsy shop all set up and pretty, it’s time to list an item. This part is much easier that the initial set-up, but there are still a few surprises your first time around.
