    Cramping throughout different phases and trimesters of your pregnancy is quite normal so long, it does not occur with bleeding or unbearable abdominal pain. For the first-time-mothers, this kind of cramping makes them worried whereas most women by mistake link the issue with their menstrual cycle.

  • Review: Peacemaker

    16 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    Peacemaker is the latest book in C.J. Cherryh’s Foreigner universe. Calling it an epic series doesn’t seem to do it justice: it’s now a full five trilogies long. And Cherryh’s still not done: she’s working on the first book in the sixth Foreigner Sequence. I don’t exactly have a short attention span, but even I would’ve thought after fifteen books in a series I’d be tired of it. But with every book she gives us a little more of the atevi and their world and their interactions with one human, and it keeps getting better.Read OnReview: Peacemaker

To sell out would make it one of the largest music concerts ever played in America — highly unlikely for an English electronic band.

  • Alien: Isolation review – Hold your breath

    The first time I watched Alien was when I was 13. I wanted to engross myself into Ridley Scott’s space horror masterpiece after experiencing the more action-oriented Aliens from James Cameron. There was a sense of tranquil beauty that Scott’s Alienhad that really can’t be explained in words. Certainly it’s not one in the trilogy that easily translates into a video game. That’s where Creative Assembly comes in with Alien: Isolation. How can a developer whose portfolio consists of mainly strategy games create an authentic survival horror experience? For…

    There is never a shortage of vampire movies, especially these days.  Just in time for Halloween comes another attempt at bringing back the original vampire, Dracula himself.  Unlike many Dracula movies, this one actually succeeds at bringing something new and worthwhile to the table.   The first sign of something new is the setting, sometime in the 1400s, I believe.  Dracula is simply known as Vlad, a human who has been trained especially well at fighting and killing from growing up in the army.  So there is a lot of medieval armor and clothing and fighting; it looks more like Lord…

Disney’s entry continues their recent tradition of taking a time-honored classic animated feature and turning it into a live-action/CGI amalgamation that is sure to intrigue the millions who grew up with the original film. Maleficent casts Angelina Jolie as the title villain, known to just about every man, woman and child as the evil sorceress who curses Sleeping Beauty, transforms into a green-fire breathing dragon and is ultimately defeated by Prince Philip.

    Several times now, I’ve heard Edge of Tomorrow described as the action version of Groundhog Day.  While that might be a good way to describe the movie quickly to someone who hasn’t heard of it, it does a disservice to an original and exciting movie.  For me, Edge of Tomorrow is so far the best movie of the summer and it deserves more careful consideration than a comparison to a 20-year old comedy. I am generally not a big fan of Tom Cruise, and he’s all over the advertising for this movie.  He always seems smug and too cool in his roles.  This time around, he’s…

In gaming circles the Usage is commonly referred to as the “Proc Rate”. Based on my personal experiences, talking with other players, and performing online research here is what I have deduced: 1. There is a specific percentage of likeliness for each proc rate. 2. Ability level augments the proc rate slightly. 3. Card rarity augments the proc rate further. 4. Card position within your deck augments proc rate as well. Base…

    18 Sep 2014 | 3:32 am
    In today’s fast-paced business environment, convenience is equally important to customers and businesses alike. When consumers research their products and commit to a purchase without leaving the sofa, and employees are in and out of the office several times a week, businesses can soon be left behind if they don’t cater to these recent changes. Many businesses can address these issues with a centralised, online platform for collaborative work and file sharing – tackling everything from the development of new products and services to the tracking of a customer’s purchase.

  • How Do EMF Protection Devices Protect You from Dangerous Health Effects

    18 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    As more information becomes known by the general public, certain fears arise and grow and sometimes fade away again. Several years ago, at the beginning of the rise in popularity of wireless devices, no one was thinking of the potential dangers of EMF radiation. Recently, however, the additional information about these waves have rekindled more substantial public fear. Public reaction and the current trend in fear should not be your deciding factor on whether to take action to protect yourself from the possible health risks of EMF radiation or not. Instead, do some research yourself and…
  • EaseUS Todo Backup Review

    25 Aug 2014 | 1:01 pm
    Have you ever had a computer crash at your home or office and been left without any backup? If not, let me just be frank: it is one of the worst things that can happen. Seeing that I work from home, a few years ago this happened to me and I was out data, articles, contacts, everything. All gone, overnight when my computer crashed and I could not get back any of the data. It does not matter if you are just a home computer user or a business man, backing up your computer is a must. Most people in the USA backup their data less than once a year which is alarming when they have so much to lose. I…

    See all reviews of The Wicked + The Divine (4)The Wicked + The Divine #5 brings us the finale to the first story arc; it’s been an… interesting ride so far, if quite a bit problematic, but that’s beside the point.

  • The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 2 “Strangers” Review

    Nick Nafpliotis
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:28 am
    Last week’s season opener was a smorgasbord of drama, gore, and action, capped off with a heartfelt reunion for (most of) the main cast while the cannibal town of Terminus burned. Now we get to see where our newly enlarged group of survivors goes from here. Is it good? So…we’re good? Rick makes up with Carol, Carol makes up with Tyrese, Tara makes up with Rick (with the most cringe-worthy fist bump in history), and everyone continues to not give a crap about Beth. Tyrese also tells Carol that he doesn’t want to talk about the messy business with Lizzy and Mika, setting us up for some…

    While I did have some problems with the new edition, Naoki Urasawa’s Monster still managed to hold up very well upon rereading and still was just as engaging as it was when I first read the series.

  • Time Killers: Short Story Collection Review

    Jordan Richards
    17 Oct 2014 | 2:20 pm
    One of the bigger manga series that is currently out there (besides Attack on Titan) is Blue Exorcist by writer and artist, Kazue Kato. In my humble opinion, it is quite an enjoyable manga that really does Shonen right, while also being a bit subversive and atypical. Now, why do I bring this all up? Well, because it is related to this brand new collection of short stories called Time Killers. Time Killers is a collection of quick one-shot comics written by Kazue Kato before she created Blue Exorcist. These stories show her early work and even a lot of similar looking character with designs…

  • Review: 'Rose Point' and 'Laisrathera', by M. C. A. Hogarth

    23 Sep 2014 | 7:28 pm
    These are books 2 and 3 of M.C.A. Hogarth’s Her Instruments space opera trilogy. Earthrise, book 1, was reviewed in Flayrah in June 2013. The fact that Maggie Hogarth commissioned professional s-f cover artist Julie Dillon to paint the covers of this trilogy instead of doing their covers herself, as she usually does for her books, shows that Hogarth considers them especially good (or at least especially salable). And you know how good her fiction usually is. Rose Point, by M. C. A. Hogarth, Tampa, FL, Studio MCAH, October 2013, trade paperback $16.99 (349 [+1] pages), Kindle $5.99.

    So for today’s Daily Prompt, we have… The Great Divide When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other? When I read for fun, its got to be fiction. A good story will keep me occupied for hours. And by hours, I mean hours. Because I get so fascinated, I got to finish the book as soon as possible. I can’t really think of many non-fictions that I’ve read. I have read a few autobiographies and stuff. I think I liked Jackie Chan’s and Hulk Hogan’s but that’s all I remember. With…

    FORESHADOW Now I had heard of the term foreshadow before, but it had never really occurred to me what it was exactly and how I would use it in a piece of writing. In fact, it had never even crossed my mind. When I wrote something, foreshadowing wasn’t even something that existed. Considering I like to think I’m an awesome a bit of a writer, I should have known. Anyhow, the Weekly Challenge from the Daily Post has allowed me to give this a shot. So I’m going to try and figure this out and hopefully somebody can help me out and tell me how I’m doing. FOUR SHADOWS Four…

    With The Walking Dead being “the most-watched drama series in basic cable history“, it’s no surprise that it has inspired plenty of merchandise – and one of my favorites is the video game by Telltale. As my fellow Geekiary author Rinienne said in her review of the game’s first season, “The Walking Dead game is a wonderful addition to the Robert Kirkman’s world and a must-have game for any fan of the series.” Being such a fan of this game, I was definitely excited about getting the chance to sit down with Melissa Hutchison at Walker Stalker Con in…

    After last week’s action-packed season premiere, which had about as happy of an ending as Walking Dead could have, it was still hard to believe that the group would continue in that vein. But in the end, even understanding that couldn’t prepare me for what happened in “Strangers”. Truthfully, though it had some interesting moments, a lot of this episode seemed forced. It quickly became clear that they were using the changing color of the smoke at Terminus in the background of the awkward semi-slow-motion shots of the group traveling to show the passage of time. I can…

You lose 3 times in a row before finally win 1. The amount of money spend = 5 + 10 + 20 + 40 = 75 Winning (last bet x 2) = 40 x 2 =…
