Documents reveal that The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has ordered over 1,400 pounds of super high-powered explosives through the (TSA) Transportation Safety Administration set to be delivered on August 31st.
In yet another ‘summer shooting’ involving a killer who is now being referred to by the media as the ‘Empire State Building shooter’, recently-fired gunman Jeffrey Johnson fired on a co-worker before being gunned down by police outside of the Empire State Building in downtown New York City.
Due to the near future voting on November 6, 2012 for California’s Proposition 37, there has been a lot of heat going back and forth concerning GMO foods. Up until now, biotechnology giant Monsanto dished out a whopping $4.2 million alone. Monsanto has even recently published a page on their site titled “Taking a Stand: Proposition 37, The California Labeling Proposal,” where the GMO giant attempts to logically explain why it is so against GMO labeling. Here are the top 7 lies Monsanto wants you to believe regarding GMO labeling and Prop 37.
Proposition 37, a bill that would require all genetically modified foods to be labeled, has gained tremendous support from the public, and much financial backing. But while an overwhelming number of individuals want nothing more than GMO foods to be labeled, others are doing everything in their power to stop such a bill from existing. It isn’t surprising to see biotech giants like Monsanto go against Proposition 37 and GMO labeling, but do you have any idea who else is fighting Prop 37?
Monsanto is doing its absolute best to ensure that you do not know what you are putting into your mouth, now confirmed to have donated $4.2 million in an attempt to fight the California GMO labeling initiative that could very well put them out of business.
Promises of ‘immortality’ and a disease-free life have led many individuals to long for the hope of artificial intelligence and what is known as Singularity. It is essentially a merging of man and machine, the development of a ‘new species’ — a ‘borg’ of sorts.
Caving to consumer demands, Johnson & Johnson announced that they will remove probable carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals from (almost) all adult toiletries and cosmetics by 2015. But would the corporate giant really remove all these chemicals? Seeing as Johnson and Johnson is a pharmaceutical and consumer packaged goods manufacturer, there are reasonable doubts that carcinogens will truly be removed from Johnson and Johnson products. We’ll see.
Genetically modified humans is the next venture for biotechnology companies working with the United States military, with the admitted goal of producing a ‘super soldier’ that does not require food or sleep to perform Olympic-style physical feats.
For centuries, humankind has been utilizing the naturally occurring medicinal and healing compounds of plants to overcome illness and disease. Up until just a few years ago, scientists had to manually splice natural plant compounds to patent them for pharmaceutical drug companies; now, a way has been discovered to genetically modify plants which are actually programmed to produce pharmaceutical drugs instead of their natural compounds. Of course not everyone is excited for genetically modified plants.
