“Outside the Wire”: To Be or Not to Be

Released Jan. 15, 2021, Netflix’s latest sci-fi robot war film “Outside the Wire” reinvents the wheel when it comes to following the commonly seen trope of sentience in machines, seen in robot movies such as “AXL,” “Chappie” and “Big Hero Six.” However, that’s not to say that they didn’t put their own spin on said “wheel.”  The movie begins with protagonist Lieutenant Thomas Harp eating a bag of...

I know that at least for me, the end of 2019 was supposed to mark a new, exciting chapter in my life.

Intermittent Fasting: The Warrior Diet

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock these past few years, you’ve probably heard of intermittent fasting. The basic premise: choose a stretch of time either daily or weekly that you are not allowed to consume any excess calories, and return to normal or modified eating at any other time. Intermittent fasting is known to help with weight control, inflammation, and heart health, among a...
