Bullied Teen Commits Suicide After Alleged Rape

Bullied Teen Commits Suicide After Alleged Rape | Linda GMO | Scoop.it
A 17-year-old Canadian girl died Sunday following a suicide attempt last week.

In a Facebook memorial page, the girl's mother, Leah Parsons, wrote that Rehtaeh had been shunned and harassed after one of the boys allegedly involved in the rape took a picture of the incident and distributed it to their "school and community, where it quickly went viral."

"Rehtaeh is gone today because of the four boys that thought that raping a 15-year-old girl was okay, and to distribute a photo to ruin her spirit and reputation would be fun," Parsons wrote.

5 Google search tricks you may not know | Linda GMO | Scoop.it

Here are 5 search tricks you may not have known you can do, (you probably wont need to know  this but its fun to try.)

•type in "sunset" followed by your city and Google will tell you when the sun will set.

•you can do the same for sunrises just take out "sunset" for "sunrise"

• Google let's you keep track of a package. Just type in the FedEx, UPS or USPS tracking number and Google will quickly update you on your package's location and status.

•Google also makes it simple for people to check the status of a U.S. flight. Type in the name of the airline followed by the flight number and the status will appear. Even better, you check flights from specific locations type in "flights from" or "flights to" along with the city or airport name.

•Google makes it simple and easy to find public data.  Just search for "Google public data explorer," then you have access to all the great data reports and features that Google offers.

•Did you know you can make Google do a barrel roll? If your browser supports it, type in the search box "do a barrel roll Google" and watch Google roll on your screen.

Major US Food Retailers To Shun Genetically Modified, Factory Farmed, Enslaved Seafood

Major US Food Retailers To Shun Genetically Modified, Factory Farmed, Enslaved Seafood | Linda GMO | Scoop.it

 

March 20, 2013 (Reuters) - WHOLE FOODS MARKET INC, TRADER JOE'S AND OTHER FOOD RETAILERS VOW NOT TO SELL GENETICALLY ENGINEERED SEAFOOD

Whole Foods Market Inc, Trader Joe's and other food retailers representing more than 2,000 U.S. stores have vowed not to sell genetically engineered seafood if it is approved in the United States, a new advocacy group said on Wednesday.
The announcement from the Campaign for Genetically Engineered-Free Seafood comes as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration appears close to approving genetically engineered salmon from Massachusetts-based AquaBounty Technologies.
If it gets final approval from the Food and Drug Administration, the salmon would be the first genetically engineered animal to enter this country's human food supply. The United States already is the world's largest market for foods made with genetically altered plant ingredients... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/20/genetically-modified-seafood_n_2912684.html?ir=green&utm_campaign=032013&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Alert-green&utm_content=FullStory

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 25, 2013 2:08 AM

AquaBounty Technologies the patent-seeking company for genetically engineered salmon has tried to cover all the bases for possible objections.  This includes raising these giant salmon in captivity on land to avoid possible ocean contamination.  What is interesting is they are proposing to do this in Panama, away from US prying eyes and where there is no oversight, regulations for how they are bred for import back into the USA.  Further, a fish this size should not be bred in captivity, enslaved in cramped quarters requiring antibiotics and pesticides for the lice that comes from such artificial breeding grounds.  Fish need to swim in the open ocean.  The answer to all this is to stop over-fishing so that our oceans can recover from the devastating losses experienced from massive ocean trawlers decimating the natural biodiversity of our oceans.

IS STRESS EDIBLE?

IS STRESS EDIBLE? | Linda GMO | Scoop.it

 

EDIBLE SILICON VALLEY

The connection between food and stress may be stronger than you think.

 

The diseases most commonly attributed to food—heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, depression, inflammation and obesity start the list—are without exception stress-related diseases. “Stress eating” is commonly understood to mean “eating during times of emotional stress.” But what if the food we eat contains a chemical echo of the stressful experience it recently suffered? In that case, we might be putting stress on a plate and calling it lunch.

Food writers and activists such as Michael Pollan, Alice Waters and others have drawn attention to the many harmful aspects of modern food production. Industrial cultivation and distribution put extreme stress on plants and animals that we eat. It seems that the stresses placed on food ingredients are coming back to us full circle in a perverse rendition of “you are what you eat.”... http://ediblesiliconvalley.com/2013-articles/is-stress-edible/

SOARING BEE DEATHS IN 2012 SOUND ALARM ON PESTICIDES

A mysterious malady that has been killing honeybees en masse for several years appears to have expanded drastically in the last year, wiping out 40 percent or even 50 percent of the hives needed to pollinate many of the nation’s fruits and vegetables.

A conclusive explanation so far has escaped scientists studying the ailment, colony collapse disorder, since it first surfaced around 2005. But beekeepers and some researchers say there is growing evidence that a powerful new class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, incorporated into the plants themselves, could be an important factor.

The European Union has proposed to ban the use of neonicotinoids on crops frequented by bees. Some researchers have concluded that neonicotinoids caused extensive die-offs in Germany and France.

The Agriculture Department says a quarter of the American diet, from apples to cherries to watermelons to onions, depends on pollination by honeybees.... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/29/science/earth/soaring-bee-deaths-in-2012-sound-alarm-on-malady.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1&;

My Thoughts:

Stress can come in many shapes or forms. It effects ones work and family life to a point where it can corrupt the mind into believing that it is worthless and therefore lead to depression. Being on the police force is one of the top 10 most stressful jobs because of the things that they see every day. PTSD is the main stresser along with heavy workload and low pay. These stresser are leading to our police for to be at a higher risk for heart attack and poorer performance on the job.
