LED technology is on the rise in lighting design technology.  This innovation represents an improvement on the incandescent bulb, lasting for much much longer and using less energy to output the same amount of light.

This alert comes from Demand Progress! Please follow through with action and shares!

 

We will have to watch the new FCC chairperson (Wheeler) closely as he is a true industry insider rather than a real deal, public servant. We need to make sure he makes the transition to public servant shaping great public policy which looks out for citizens interest rather than remaining an industry tool for monetary corporate gains and corrupting public policy to suit that corporate goal..

More good news about the banning GMOs.

Haley Abrams's curator insight, April 30, 2014 11:35 PM

I thought this article is so interesting because we just learned about this in class. I did know that these places are looking to banns on these types of foods. I would eventuality like to America banning these types of foods but for now I will settle for a small set which is labeling. This is a great way to let people know what they are eating and it is very cheap. While I would like to be here one day I believe that we need to make small steps on this battle ground staring with labeling.

Ann Marie Rydberg's comment, May 2, 2014 8:33 PM
I agree with Haley that this is definitely a step in the right direction. However, I'm not sure that outright banning GMO's is the way to go. I think that we should begin with labeling products that contain GMO's then progress to actually banning them. Furthermore, we don't actually know what kind of negative effects, if any, are caused by GMO's, so I don't think major changes can be made until this information is found.

An article from food Democracy Now talks about a secret meeting to protect #GMO/#MSG companies. " If you thought the Monsanto Protection Act was bad, the secret trade deals called the TPP and TAFTA are a global nightmare. Right now two secret trade agreements, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA), also called the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), are being negotiated behind closed doors like this spring when the Monsanto Protection Act was passed. Just as we are on the verge of winning GMO labeling in the US, these secret negotiations could eliminate the ability of countries around the world to label GMOs or impose common sense restrictions on the sale of genetically engineered seed and food in their countries if Monsanto and other biotech companies get their way. They could also make it illegal to label GMOs in the U.S., placing the decision in the hands of corporate lobbyists and Monsanto GMO stooges.Demand an end to secret trade deals, stop the fast track of TAFTA and the TPP. Stand with Food Democracy Now! - don't let corporations pass the Global Monsanto Protection Act! " To sign the petition search on your browser 'Monsanto TPP' and look for Food Democracy Now or email me redrum623az@gmail.com and I'll send it to. Let's keep the natural and expose the unnatural.
