Thanks to ... intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market.
The disadvantage of men not knowing the past is that they do not know the present. History is a hill or high point of vantage, from which alone men see the town in which they live or the age in which they are living. - GK Chesterton
Fox News fired reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre for revealing that most of the milk in the USA and across some parts of the world is unfit to drink due to Monsanto's POSILAC®, which has been proven to be a cancer-causing growth hormone.
After a long court battle, the Court dismissed the whistle blowers protection for the reporters because the Court stated that there was no law to force that the NEWS state the truth!
Some time in 1996 a couple of guys got together and smoked what was apparently a large amount of crack and then injected pure heroin into their eyes and then proceeded to create what is now known only as 'the Doom comic'.
"We did not add anything for one group but the other was fed with soya that contained no GM components, while the third group with some content of Genetically Modified Organisms and the fourth one with increased amount of GMO. We monitored their behavior and how they gain weight and when they give birth to their cubs. Originally, everything went smoothly. However, we noticed quite a serious effect when we selected new pairs from their cubs and continued to feed them as before. These pairs’ growth rate was slower and reached their sexual maturity slowly. When we got some of their cubs we formed the new pairs of the third generation. We failed to get cubs from these pairs, which were fed with GM foodstuffs. It was proved that these pairs lost their ability to give birth to their cubs"
One Australian report suggests the GMO corn made by Monsanto causes significant fertility problems in mice (and, by implication, possibly humans).
And a new study -- which had to resort to analyzing data sets produced by studies conducted by Monsanto and another biotech firm, Covance Laboratories, and submitted to European governments because researchers couldn't get seeds -- has found that Monsanto corn impairs rats' kidneys and livers. The "data strongly suggests" that after just 90 days of eating GM corn, rats experienced kidney toxicity and showed effects to their hearts, adrenal glands, spleen and blood cells. (The study was published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences.)
My kids enjoy (amongst other shows) World Of Quest. It has a catchy theme song (hey, I'm no Mozart) along with some amusing scripts which seem to be aimed at various levels like many cartoon shows these days.
Having got the tune in my head, I found myself frustatingly unable to sing the song because I didn't know the lyrics. Even worse, a search on Google revealed no lyrics! I was forced to figure them out for myself!
Anyway, here is what I came up with - the unauthorised, unsanctified "World Of Quest" lyrics, with no guarantee whatsoever as to their accuracy.
My pal Quest does whatever I want
Man, I gotta lose this little runt
I get to boss him around when we're in a mess
This Prince Nestor is a royal pest
Save the world, World of Quest
He may be large, but I'm in charge
Save the world, World of Quest
Without me kid, you wouldn't get too far
Come along with Nestor and Quest
Save the world, World of Quest
I received an e-mail today. It was a document containing a press release about Real Life Superheroes. It also contained some photos. The text follows, as well as thumbs of the photos and these thumbnails, when clicked, will take you to the original corresponding links in the document.
Superheroes do exist in real life and they are out to save the world
Superheroes have been a part of American culture since the late 1930's. From Superman to Spiderman, superheroes have filled the hearts and minds of children and adults alike with feelings of awe and inspiration. Over the past several years, superheroes have become more than just characters in comic books. Conscientious citizens are creating their own superhero personas, putting on costumes, and going out to make their communities a better place. They call themselves Real Life Superheroes.
Real Life Superheroes is a grassroots movement of people who create a superhero identity and work in a fun, exciting, and inspirational fashion to make the world a better place. They are using the iconic essence of comic book superheroes to make a difference, inspire others, spread a positive message, and call attention to issues in their communities. They are making an impact by doing civic activities, public safety patrols, crime fighting, charity work, school talks, hospital visits, helping the needy, and more acts to serve society. They are breaking the comic book barrier and bringing the ideals of superheroes into the real world. . Real Life Superheroes create living positive role models which our children are in need of.
The concept of a superhero, an individual who aspires to a higher moral code which benefits society, has a psychological impact on children, both appealing to their sense of fun as well as teach them important values.
With names like Dark Guardian, Zetaman, and Citizen Prime, Real Life Superheroes have been out patrolling our streets, helping the needy, assisting in crime prevention, and inspiring others for many years now. It is a growing movement where more and more people are creating their own superhero personas and taking to the streets to make a difference.
Real Life Superheroes believe there is a hero in everyone and if we can tap into that and help people find the hero in themselves we could live in a much better place. They hope through their actions they can inspire others to go out and be a little more super themselves.
Real Life Superheroes have an online headquarters. If you ever need help you do not need a bat signal. You can find a listing of heroes, where they are from, and a way to contact them. The site has all the information you need on real life superheroes plus ways you can be a hero, articles, a forum and much more. A non profit organization is even being formed by real life superheroes called Superheroes Anonymous.
Real Life Superheroes are out there saving the world one person at a time.
This game might seem a little bewildering at first, but stick with it, because Fantastic Contraption is an excellent game.
The game consists of a series of puzzles, all based around trying to get a pink wheel into a pink area of the board by building fantasic contraptions to move it there. Clear as mud? It's very hard to describe, just give it a try. The contraptions, which can be built from materials provided at the top of the screen, follow basic rules of physics, so there is a logic to the whole process.
At the last count there were 21 levels to play, but I believe one of the priorities of the author is for there to be 40 levels. One really great inclusion is that having built a successful contraption, you can then see other people's contraptions for that level, and some of them are truly fantastic!
