comment What is the minimal age, at which “Starship troopers” the book is safe for a child?
I had my son read it around 12-13 years, and I don't see any reason I couldn't have gone a few years younger. The hurdle is not the sex (there is none) nor the violence (pretty tame), but the discussions about political systems and civic responsibility. They just wouldn't make sense to a younger child.

comment What are the risks of putting a newborn baby to sleep on their front?
Don't forget the incidence of babies with malformed (flattened) skulls. That has increased greatly since doctors began recommending having your baby sleep on their back. As a sidenote, I feel quite sorry for new, well-meaning parents who actually try act on all the advice given by their doctors, medical organizations, and books.
