"...an estimated 27 percent of the food available for consumption, according to a government study — and it happens at the supermarket, in restaurants and cafeterias and in your very own kitchen. It works out to about a pound of food every day for every American."source: nytimes.comI think the answer is clear, we don't need to tamper with nature to produce more food for the world; first we need to stop being so wasteful and instead of throwing out perfectly good food just donate it to those in need. Let's use what would be a waste of good food and feed hungry mouths. Man needs to stop tampering with our food supply, LEAVE OUR FOOD ALONE!
"When the show airs and the story fully comes out, you will see what happened."Looks like we'll be waiting to see what unravels in the new season...Do you think Jennifer will throw a drink in Evalyn's face like she did Eric Williams? Or will Evelyn make a 'special' tshirt for Jennifer...oh the suspense...lol. Here's a little sneak peek to get you started:
[Moments before her sentence was imposed, 18-year-old Alyssa Bustamante rose from her chair — with shackles linking her ankles and holding her hands to her waist — and turned to face the family of 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten, whom she confessed to killing in October 2009.
"I really am extremely, very sorry for everything. I know words," she said, pausing to take a deep breath and struggling to compose herself, "can never be enough, and they can never adequately describe how horribly I feel for all of this."
She later added: "If I could give my life to get her back I would. I'm sorry."
Elizabeth's mother, Patty Preiss, who on the first day of Bustamante's sentencing hearing called her an "evil monster" and declared "I hate her," sat silently, staring forward as Bustamante's finished her apology.Cole County Circuit Judge Pat Joyce then sentenced Bustamante to the maximum possible sentence for second-degree murder — life in prison with the possibility of parole. She ordered the teenager to serve a consecutive 30-year term for armed criminal action, a charge resulting from her use of a knife to slit the throat and stab Elizabeth after she had strangled her into unconsciousness.]
["When Noah's 72-year-old grandmother, Janice Sparhawk, fell behind on her mortgage payments for the home that had been in her family for three generations, the Wisconsin boy succeeded in raising $10,500 in a month, ABC News reports.
His efforts saved her house from the Feb. 15 auction just in time.
The young boy started Noah's Dream Catcher Network in 2010 to organize community service projects and give do-gooders a chance to donate to important causes."I want to help someone who is very dear to me for my next dream... My Grandma has fallen on hard times and is going to loose [sic] her home," Noah wrote on his website. "My Grandma in case you don't know her has a heart of gold. She has given so much to our community since I can remember!!!"] source: huffingtonpost.com

And if the rodent population shot up, this would of course trigger a cascade of other ecological effects. On that same island in New Zealand, for instance, ecologists observed that, as rat numbers increased in the absence of cats, the population of seabirds whose eggs rats preyed upon declined. If the approximately 220 million domestic cats in the world all bit the dust, seabird populations would likely fall worldwide, while the populations of non-cat predators that prey on rats would be expected to increase." source: yahoo news
The most poignant part of Monday's testimony came when a handwriting expert described how he was able to see through the blue ink that Bustamante had used in an attempt to cover up her original journal entry on the night of Elizabeth's murder. He then read the entry aloud in court:
"I just f------ killed someone. I strangled them and slit their throat and stabbed them now they're dead. I don't know how to feel atm. It was ahmazing. As soon as you get over the "ohmygawd I can't do this" feeling, it's pretty enjoyable. I'm kinda nervous and shaky though right now. Kay, I gotta go to church now…lol." source: USA Today

[The finger shouldn't be pointed at one particular product, though. Amanda Fretts, lead author of the study and a researcher at the University of Washington School of Medicine, told Reuters that "spam" is often is used to describe any kind of processed, canned meat, which is a staple food item on reservations. "A lot of communities in this study are in very rural areas with limited access to grocery stores...and they want to eat foods that have a long shelf life."] source: everydayhealth.comRead more here.
