On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, we’ll be reviewing Mad Max: Fury Road! Is it really as good as critics are saying? Has George Miller outdone himself this time? Can it stand proudly alongside the likes of Mad Max 2? Does it raise the bar for action/adventure films? Is Tom Hardy a worthy successor to Mel Gibson? Should Fury Road be looked at as a reboot, or sequel? Does it continue the saga of Max Rockatansky as we have always known him, or is it a new beginning? Does the film promote a feminist agenda, or should it merely be taken as post-apocalyptic action yarn? Should George Miller be counted among the greatest action filmmakers of all time?
We’ll also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Rambo: First Blood Part II! How does it stack up to the original First Blood? How did it end up becoming more iconic than its predecessor? Just what were James Cameron’s contributions to John Rambo’s second outing? Was the character misappropriated by the Reagan/Bush administration? Did Stallone always intend for him to be a rugged individualist instead of a Right Wing icon? What does the future hold for America’s most iconic one man army? We discuss.
We’ll also be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Amerikkka’s Most Wanted! Is it the greatest solo debut of all time? Was it the primary influence behind Ready to Die and Good Kid, M.A.A.D City? Is it the single greatest gangsta rap album ever made? Did Ice Cube and the Bomb Squad create a blueprint that every single rapper since has followed? Was it embraced by the east coast solely due to the Bomb Squad’s involvement? Will we ever see it’s like again?
Why Are 4 Out Of 5 Black Women Obese, Overweight?
This statistic, from a BU Today report on fighting obesity, is enough to ruin your morning: “No population in the United States has a higher obesity rate than African American women, four out of five of whom are overweight or obese, according to a 2012 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

The causes of this alarming obesity rate are various and complex and range from genes and diet to socioeconomic status and the environment, according to Julie Palmer, a senior epidemiologist at Boston University’s Slone Epidemiology Center who has coordinated the Black Women’s Health Study since 1995. In the BU piece, Palmer details some of these causes and potential fixes:
“…when the women were asked how often they ate out and what type of fast food they chose—burgers, pizza, Mexican, Chinese, fried chicken, or fried fish—those who frequently chose the first option had the most consequences. “We found that eating burgers from fast food or other restaurants definitely increased risk for obesity,” she says. “This was after controlling for soft drinks and after controlling for total fat. There’s something about red meat; we don’t know exactly what it is. And then there’s something about eating that type of meal and everything that goes with it. It was clearly worse than eating the fried fish, fried chicken, or the pizza.”
