If you care even a little bit about this issue, you know that this affects you, me, our families - everyone. Whether you eat genetically modified food or not. It affects our society, our cultures, our economy, our health, soil, air and our mentality. This video should be shared amongst every platform of social media you use, shared with friends and family. This is something that is only getting worse as time goes on and only people like us can slow it down. THUMBS UP to spread the word.

SAD.......MAD......DISGUSTED!....But certainly not shocked by the selling out of  American citizens interest to fat cats by the folks in congress that seem to be increasingly fat cats as well by putting policy up for a price to the highest bidder..

A budget provision protecting genetically-modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks was extended for three months in an approved US House of Representatives’ spending bill on Tuesday evening.

Called “The Monsanto Protection Act” by opponents, the budget rider shields biotech behemoths like Monsanto, Cargill and others from the threat of lawsuits and bars federal courts from intervening to force an end to the sale of a GMO (genetically-modified organism) even if the genetically-engineered product causes damaging health effects.

How Are Scientists Using Twitter?

How Are Scientists Using Twitter? | Paradigm shift in Social Media | Scoop.it

Scientific researchers have been prolific users of social media.  Most of their usage has been restricted to dedicated social networks however, with the likes of Mendeley proving particularly popular.  What of Twitter?

David Shiffman from the University of Miami describes some of the advantages of using Twitter during the development of scientific papers in this paper.

He describes how the platform can allow researchers to connect quickly with one another, thus fostering interdisciplinary collaboration.  What’s more, it also allows researchers to communicate their finders to a wide audience.

Droughts have long played a pivotol role in community unrest and civil wars, leading to regional insecurity and conflict. They are no mask for dictatorships but droughts place unimaginable stresses on humanity.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, September 14, 2013 9:05 PM

This is a very well stated article.

Excerpt:

Economic democracy is the only language in which political self-government may even be whispered. We have been falsely educated against the virtues of democracy for centuries by being cultured against our common interest and judgement. This fallacy has been established by the  ruling classes, who believe that destiny chooses a select few in every epoch to lead the majority to some greater port. This corrupted script of oppressive delusion is performed in every theater in which human endeavor occurs, but as any materialist will tell you, economics is the most fundamental endeavor of all. In this theater, both major narratives of the past century: state capitalism in the West and state socialism in the East, have at least fallen ill. It is a cure for this illness that concerns us here.
