Look Down Under for Fast-Food Justice at McDonald's

Look Down Under for Fast-Food Justice at McDonald's | Gestión y competencias profesionales | Scoop.it
Most fast-food and other low-wage workers are back on the job after a series of rolling strikes earlier this month demanding a living wage and the right to join a union without employer retaliation. More strikes are planned around Labor Day. But the struggle continues for economic justice for the workers who earn the minimum wage ($7.25) or just above.Two articles you may have missed show that boosting the workers' pay to $15 an hour just might not cut into the profits of companies like McDonald's or cost consumers much more for their favorite burger.

The 3Rs

The 3Rs | Gestión y competencias profesionales | Scoop.it
Animals are used in a variety of scientific disciplines. The principles of the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) were developed over 50 years ago as a framework for humane animal research .

Via Paula Olaizola
Luis Miguel Calzada Colina's insight:

Esta noticia es una mera definición del principio de las tres "R":  refinamiento, remplazo y reducción. No aporta ninguna especie de comentario ni nada similar, si no que simplemente informa de lo que es.

Se trata de un objetivo que podríamos llamar a corto plazo, pues ya se esta aplicando y en el futuro se mejorará aun mas. Lo considero esencial y me parece que es necesario llevarlo a cabo.

Paula Olaizola's curator insight, November 20, 2014 10:18 AM

El principio de las 3 Rs se basa en el reemplazo, reducción y refinamiento del uso de animales en la experimentación científica. Son interesantes las propuestas de métodos alternativos para conseguir modelos más representativos que permitan evaluar y predecir la seguridad y eficacia de nuevos tratamientos, por ejemplo.

 

Reemplazo: Siempre que se puedan obtener datos científicamente válidos. No hacerlo, aunque existiesen métodos alternativos, supondría una grave sanción. 

 

Reducción: Se trata de utilizar el menor número de animales posibles. Eso sí, ha de ser un número suficiente para tener resultados fiables. 

 

Refinamiento: Se trata de la elección de métodos que minimicen el dolor y sufrimiento del animal. Se trata de mejorar el bienestar de los animales utilizados.

LA REGULACIÓN DE LA BIOTECNOLOGÍA Y OMGs

 

En esta noticia se puede ver la polémica que existe respecto a los organismos modificados genéticamente. Es verdad que la manipulación genética puede tener consecuencias, pero existen límites y regulaciones específicas para estos productos para proteger la salud y la seguridad. Desde la fase de investigación hasta la comercialización se aplica el principio de precaución, donde los científicos demuestran que no existen riesgos para la salud o el medioambiente. Además las leyes que regulan los OMGs son muy extensas.

En resumen podemos decir que la biotecnología es una actividad muy regulada y que en principio no tendría que tener ningún riesgo. A pesar de esto, como vemos en muchas noticias, sigue siendo un tema de interés y de debate.

El reglamento REACH regula los productos químicos de Europa.

Por la UE pasan todas las sustancias químicas que se producen en el mundo. Por lo tanto regulan al final el comercio global de estos productos.

Su objetivo es alcanzar un equilibrio: busca proteger el medio ambiente y un libre comercio de estos productos.

He cogido esta noticia porque me ha chocado mucho un dato que han aportado: en 2013 más de 3.440 beagles fueron utilizados en más de 4.523 procedimientos en el Reino Unido y miles fueron criados específicamente para este propósito .

Apoyo la idea de evitar esto, aunque sea empezando por redes sociales o simplemente con la publicacion de esta noticia, pues no considero ético el echo de que  se críen animales, ya sean beagles, ratones o lo que sea simplemente para su uso en un laboratorio.

Aunque es simplemente una imagen  con la frase "animal don´t smoke", no considero necesario nada mas para poder entender el mensaje que intenta transmitir, el cual está muy claro, y para darme cuenta de las crueldades que se realizan con los animales con el fin de poder facilitar la vida.

Los humanos somo los mas desarrollados, los mas inteligentes, tenemos como objetivo el conocimiento, y como afán el poder desvelar el misterio de las enfermedades, o simplemente de la dependencia que causa el tabaco. Ello nos lleva a experimentar con animales, pues ellos no se van a quejar como lo haríamos nosotros. pero solo con ver esta imagen deberíamos replantearnos si hacemos bien, si merece la pena.

Una patente forma parte de un complejo llamado propiedad intelectual, pudiéndose patentar sólo invenciones que posteriormente se darán a conocer al público. La oficina de patentes examinará la solicitud de patente para establecer si se cumplen los requisitos que se exigen para la concesión de una patente.

Por tanto, teniendo en cuenta que la oficina de patentes de el visto bueno, el descubrimiento de un gen sería parte del complejo intelectual de un investigador, de su descubridor, po tanto, ¿por qué no patentarlo? Para mí, aunque dicha noción puede parecer un poco extraña, si que es patentable; pero, ¿para los abogados y los que tengan que decidir si es o no patentable un gen?

Los Angeles, May 03, 2014
- ▶ USA SCIENTISTS RACE TO BIO-ENGINEER CHICKENS AND FARM ANIMALS UNDER THE GUISE OF CLIMATE CHANGE & 'FEED THE WORLD" SPIN.

                 "The idea is to create animals that are more efficient,"

The researchers are in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the U.S. federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can "stand up to the hazards of global warming" (and keep the billion dollar corporate factory farm industry in control of our food)

   Some climate-change activists dismiss the work, which is just getting underway, as a distraction and a concession to industrial-style agriculture, which they blame for compounding the world's environmental problems. Those leading the experiments, however, say new, "heat-resistant breeds of farm animals" will be essential to feeding the world as climate change takes hold.

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

 - ▶  CHINA CLONING PIGS ON AN 'INDUSTRIAL SCALE - CLONE UPON CLONE UPON CLONE -The scale of ambition is staggering. BGI is not only the world's largest centre for cloning pigs - it's also the world's largest centre for gene sequencing. In neighbouring buildings, there are rows of gene sequencers - machines the size of fridges operating 24 hours a day crunching through the codes for life.

To illustrate the scale of this operation, Europe's largest gene sequencing centre is the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge. It has 30 machines. BGI has 156 and has even bought an American company that makes them. BGI's chief executive, Wang Jun, tells me how they need the technology to develop ever FASTER, CHEAPER ways of reading genes.

▶  HUMAN GENES ENGINEERED INTO EXPERIMENTAL GMO RICE BEING GROWN IN KANSAS

The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it.
Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.

Three decades ago, humanity had a problem; science had a fascination; and industry had an opportunity. Our problem was injustice. The ranks of the hungry were expanding while the ranks of farmers were thinning. Meanwhile, science was fascinated by biotechnology – the idea that we could genetically engineer crops and livestock (and people) with traits that could overcome all our problems. Agribusiness saw an opportunity to extract the enormous surplus value that was laced throughout the food chain. The hugely decentralized food system held pockets of profit just crying out to be centralized.  All the biotechnology industry had to do is chase away the competition and coerce governments into surrendering control. ....http://www.etcgroup.org/content/who-owns-nature

▶ FEED THE WORLD:  FAMILY FARMERS HOLD KEYS TO AGRICULTURE IN A WARMING WORLD. Faced with global warming and a population that will swell to nine billion by 2050, a growing number of experts say that the way to feed the masses as climate change makes growing our food more difficult is to focus on family farmers, who often can barely feed themselves. ... 

   When policymakers in the developed world talk about feeding billions of extra mouths in the decades to come, it's multinational agribusinesses—which operate industrial-size farms—that usually get most of the attention.

   But in the long run, it's small-scale farmers in the developing world, using low-tech but sustainable agricultural techniques, who may be best poised to lead the way in adapting to a warmer world and ensuring the security of the global food supply. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/05/140502-climate-change-agriculture-family-farm-science/

THE ETHICS AND MORALITY OF PATENTING LIFE

There are no serious regulations, oversight or ethical requirements  for altering our food and food animals with genes for one reason...  Huge Profits .. To allow corporations to control our  factory farms and monculture crops and continue expanding, destroying health of environment and ecosystems and rivers.  Rather than stop what they're doing, this biotech gene-altering cartel will have changed nature and life within it to suit their ongoing juggernaut to control the world food supply - with or without authentic independently funded,peer-reviewed research as to both short and long-term affects on the animals, ecosystems and human health.  The growth-hormones used in our meat and poultry and pesticides/chemicals for the agricultural crops will eventually show up in the human condition, but it will be too late.  Obesity, Cancer and Diabetes is already a global epidemic wherever these GMO foods penetrate markets.  Most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients.

Deadly animal research program.

Javi López's curator insight, November 20, 2014 5:27 AM

La universidad de florida ha sido demandada por la investigación con monos. La investigación con animales esta más regulada cada día y especialmente con los monos,chimpancés, gorilas y demás animales que tienen un mayor parecido con el hombre.

 

Es justo poner estos limites pese a que sea necesario investigar pero hacerlo sin ética y sin cabeza no sirve de nada.Es por ello por lo que existen unas leyes y unos limites. A la hora de investigar las personas tienen que sacar su lado más humano y sobre todo ceñirse a la ley.

 

A la hora de investigar hay que asegurarse poder realizarlo en los ámbitos legales y si una investigación solo se puede desarrollar quebrantando la ley, se debería consultar a organismos superiores para comprobar si el fin sería muy superior.

 

Como opinión personal me parece una vergüenza, que una Universidad sea tildada con una cultura negligente e investigue por hallar un nuevo conocimiento sin tener en cuenta los medios.

Sharp rise in UK animal experiments

Sharp rise in UK animal experiments | Gestión y competencias profesionales | Scoop.it
El número de experimentos con animales llevados a cabo en el Reino Unido aumentó en un 8% en 2012, según cifras del Ministerio del Interior.

Via Maria Nunzia @Varvera
Luis Miguel Calzada Colina's insight:

Modificados genéticamente animales y un aumento en el número de experimentos con animales ... dos hechos muy controversiales que son las relaciones en este nuevo. 4,11 millones de experimentos científicos y el uso de más animales transgénicos que no hay animales transgénicos.

El Reino Unido tiene romper down las 3R (replacement, reducción y refinamiento). Todos sabemos que los animales son elementos esenciales en la investigación, por ejemplo en el campo de la pruebas farmacéuticas porque no podemos probar los medicamentos directamente en los seres humanos. Aunque son necesarios, considero que tenemos el deber moral de evitar este tipo de crueldades.

Leyre Albero's curator insight, October 26, 2013 4:35 AM

A pesar del descenso del uso de animales en la Unión Europea en los últimos años, vemos que en algunos países, como en Reino Unido ha aumentado el uso. Esto se debe al incremento de animales modificados genéticamente, que son modelos que no es posible reemplazarlos por otros igualmente válidos para el estudio.

Monsanto is a well-know  GM company, both for good and for evil things. However, there  are more good aspects in this company or not?

In fact, this article said that Monsanto is leading hundreds of thousands of farmers to suicide. We can consider it like the price that we have to pay for the improvement of his products.

Ban on animal testing of cosmetics sought - The Portland Press Herald / Maine Sunday Telegram | Gestión y competencias profesionales | Scoop.it
Animal rights activists may find it hard to sway regulation-averse Republicans in Congress.
Luis Miguel Calzada Colina's insight:

According to the information of this report, in which we can see how a new legislation is going to be written. This legislation that would prohibit testing cosmetic products on animals, as well as the sale of any new cosmetics if the final product or any component was developed using animal testing.

 

Now there are new models of testing, for instance, the irritation and the corrotion through the use of the xenobiots epidermi and episkin.

 

To sum up, i consider that the Moran bill is a very good initiative to improve the way by we testing process in animals with cosmetic or drugs. We have to stop  these kind of aberrations and it is a god form of starting.
