The glaring problem with Monsanto's "website promise" not to sue. Early in 2013, a verdict was reached in the OSGATA (Organic Seed Growers and Traders Association) v. Monsanto lawsuit by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C.

The organic farmers association was seeking protection from patent infringement in the case of accidental drift from GMO pollen for its members. The result was a disappointing one for OSGATA, as a three-judge panel ruled that the lawsuit would not be allowed to continue due to the explanation that "Monsanto has made binding assurances that it will not 'take legal action against growers whose crops might inadvertently contain traces of Monsanto biotech genes (because, for example, some transgenic seed or pollen blew onto the grower's land)."

ANH-USA has learned that the FDA is working with state medical boards behind the scenes-sometimes in violation of the law. These boards are treating the FDA documents as if they were formal complaints.

According to our sources, professional medical boards are launching investigative actions against integrative physicians not because of patient complaints, but because of materials forwarded to them by the FDA before they are made public. We suspect, but cannot yet prove, that this is widespread and is being orchestrated by a shadowy private group called the Association of State Medical Boards.

At first, I thought this was satire. Evidently it is not...

I am not an education policy wonk: I’m just judgmental. But it seems to me that if every single parent sent every single child to public school, public schools would improve. This would not happen immediately. It could take generations. Your children and grandchildren might get mediocre educations in the meantime, but it will be worth it, for the eventual common good.

In this Friday post from the book Living More With Less, I want to bring you an excerpt on the topic of clothing. Even though this book was written over thirty years ago, the problems that it reveals have in now way gotten better.

When we lived in Guatemala, a fourteen-year-old Kekchi boy named Amiliano worked for us. My husband had some shirts he couldn't wear anymore, and I wanted to get rid of them. I offered one to Amiliano, but he said, "No, thank you. I have two shirts, and I don't want more. With two, I wash one while I wear the other. If I had a third one, it would just mildew...

A disgrace. A destructive force against families. Homeschool dropout. A rat turd. These are but a number of phrases used on HSLDA's Facebook page in reference to Teresa Scanlan, a former homeschooler attending Patrick Henry College.

They are coming from fans (or at least previous fans) of HSLDA. Yesterday, HSLDA shared about Teresa's life and homeschooling experience in light of her being crowned Miss America in 2011. It was obviously about marketing to some extent - "the secret behind the crown was homeschooling!," HSLDA says. But it also was about celebrating a young woman with passion and drive. But things got ugly.

Generous Jurors is a program being used nationwide to allow jurors to donate their jury pay to a charity, organization or cause identified by the circuit court in their communities. Currently, there are several thriving programs in Maryland.

In Talbot County, jurors' donations go directly to the local Department of Social Services Foster Care unit. The donations are used to provide for foster children in the county items which state budgets do not always support, such as extracurricular uniforms, funds for field trips, and birthday and holiday gifts.

In a hard hitting editorial, the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics (IJME) has accused the WHO of promoting Pentavalent vaccine "by stating falsely that no adverse event following immunization (AEFI) has ever been reported with the vaccine."

The journal says this is contrary to facts. The IJME editorial by Dr. Jacob Puliyel, head of pediatrics at St Stephens Hospital in New Delhi, is based on his detailed investigation into the deaths of children in Bhutan, Sri Lanka, India and Vietnam following use of Pentavalent vaccine. This vaccine combines the Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus or DPT vaccine - long used in national immunization programs - with Hepatitis-B and H influenza-b or Hib vaccine.

A conservative black citizens group, the National Black Republican Association (NBRA), has filed detailed articles of impeachment against Barack Obama, calling for his removal from office over the National Security Agency spying program...

Though the group associates itself with Republicans, many of the articles referenced deal with activities that the Obama administration has engaged in with the full support of establishment Republicans, such as the NSA spying programs, illegal torture and treatment of whistleblowers like Edward Snowden. The articles blast Barack Obama and his administration for failing to secure the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, and then upon that failure, covering it up to hide the true nature of the attacks.

According to a fine line, down at the very bottom of the document provision of ObamaCare, millions of American homes will be subject to forced government inspections, whether they like it or not.

The HHS website states that under this provision, (or any other subsequent guidelines they come up with at the Secretary of HHS's discretion), you and your family can be imposed upon, in your home, like it or not, if you meet any of the following criteria: There is a mother in your home who is not yet 21. A family member is a tobacco user...

A mother of seven from north of Montreal is awaiting trial after being arrested in April for dreaming of killing her children, her lawyer alleges.

The 38-year-old mother, whose name can't be published to protect the identity of her children, allegedly told Quebec's child protective services that she had recurring nightmares of entering her daughters' room and stabbing them to death with a knife.

Life on Earth has been affected by seeds and crops which are genetically engineered (GE) with pesticides. This genetic engineering poses critical problems to farmers, beekeepers, consumers, wildlife, the environment, and our future.

Up until now, governments and industry (such as Monsanto, Bayer, Dow, Synerga) have argued the technology is safe. However, more and more studies and testing have proved they are not, yet we continue to eat genetically modified (GM) foods daily. Most products in our grocery stores include genetically modified ingredients, and are not labelled for our freedom of choice.

The woman who was called "nana-mom" by a Manitoba girl bounced in and out of foster care before she was murdered says the five-year-old's death cannot be in vain.

All children in Manitoba are entitled to protection, but the same privilege shouldn't be given to the social workers who failed Phoenix, Edwards said in her final submission Monday. The inquiry, which began last year, has heard from 126 witnesses and is estimated to be one of the most expensive inquiries in Manitoba's history.

Dear Editor, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to respond to a letter in Stabroek News of July 18, 2013 under the caption 'Needs to know where children have been placed.'

The Child Protection Officer is obligated to protect the child and provide support and intervention to a family that has not met their caregiving responsibilities. Once it is determined that a child is unsafe or his/her well-being is threatened in the home, the CPA has the mandate to remove the child to a safe place, but the policy is to place the child where there will be the least disruption to his/her life.

Food stamps are paying for trans-Atlantic takeout - with New Yorkers using taxpayer-funded benefits to ship food to relatives in Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Welfare recipients are buying groceries with their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards and packing them in giant barrels for the trip overseas, The Post found. The practice is so common that hundreds of 45- to 55-gallon cardboard and plastic barrels line the walls of supermarkets in almost every Caribbean corner of the city.

Thought I'd post this diary as a pointer to an item over at Political Animal, where Kathleen Geier takes note of a chilling op ed in the NY Times from Sunday. Seth Stephens-Davidowitz has looked at how child abuse has soared.

The real story about child maltreatment during the recession is a grim one. I spent months studying this topic, using a number of different data sources, including Google search queries. I found that the Great Recession caused a significant increase in child abuse and neglect. But far fewer of these cases were reported to authorities, with much of the drop due to slashed budgets for teachers, nurses, doctors and child protective service workers.

But don't worry. Obama Inc. would never outlaw homeschooling here to promote a tolerant and pluralistic society. Just like it would never force religious institutions to fund abortions in the name of a tolerant and pluralistic society.

It can't happen here. Not till next year at any rate. The Justice Department said German laws outlawing homeschooling do not constitute persecution and they want a German homeschooling family kicked out of the United States, according to a briefing filed in a high profile asylum case. "The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society," the Justice Department brief states in their battle against the Romeike family. "Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany."

As we fight to put an end to genetically modified crops (or at least be told when they are in our food), another batter wages on. This battle is being fought by huge corporations like Monsanto and Bayer CropScience.

Just like the unapproved GM flax NaturalSociety reported on last week, genetically modified rice is contaminating the global supply despite having never been approved for growing or eating. As the GM Contamination Register reports, during 2006 and 2007, three different strains of genetically modified rice were found in US rice exports and subsequently the world over. There were three specific strains of rice-one of which was approved in the U.S. and the other two which were not. Still, none of the strains were approved for cultivation or consumption anywhere else in the world. In total, the GM rice was found in more than 30 countries.

A medical breakthrough which may lead to allowing babies to have three biological parents was backed up by several British fertility watchdogs. According to source, three-parent babies may suffer from serious birth defects and other disabilities like muscular dystrophy.

Children in foster care may not always have a stable parent in their home, so the Department of Education is hoping to provide them with extra support through their Personal Responsibility Education Program, or PREP, currently in development.

Aras Chiropractic and Dr. Aras Ignatavicius D. C., are pleased to announce that locals can obtain back pain relief by utilizing the techniques and methods offered by the Singapore chiropractor under the guidelines of chiropractic medicine.

The methods are non-invasive and are all-natural. No pharmaceuticals are suggested or prescribed to patients pursuing this course of therapy. A therapeutic plan may include a number of techniques, some applied by the doctor and some that are the responsibility of the patient. The initial step when there is a subluxation is to provide a manual or mechanical adjustment to the spinal column. This allows the discs to move back into the optimum position. Pain is relieved and the body is able to begin a self healing process.

In the months leading up to the drowning death of a toddler in a Sydney foster home, the boy's case worker twice expressed concern that his foster carer wasn't taking time off and was in danger of "being burnt out", the coroner's court has heard.

The case worker also recommended that only children aged five or older live in the home because of the age and number of children already there. On April 19, 2011, the body of 21-month-old Lachlan Leslie, pictured, was found lying on the bottom of the swimming pool at a residence in Oakdale - a foster home where seven children were being looked after by one carer.

A Manitoba couple who had dreams of opening a day facility for disabled children out of their home is now living in a trailer after the house they purchased and had inspected was later condemned.

Foster parents Teresa and Patrick Campbell left their jobs more than four years ago to provide care to children with medical special needs. The pair thought they found that space in Elton, Man. when they looked at a cabin-style home with a pool, valley view and a 4.5 acre plot. "When we first drove up, my first impression was, this is it. We're home," said Teresa.

The abandoned baby who was rescued this past weekend from a sewage pipe in China is being nursed back to health in a local hospital. Meanwhile, the baby's mother has been found and has reportedly been reunited with the infant.

Firefighters in an eastern Chinese province rescued a an apparently-abandoned newborn infant from a sewage pipe after neighbors reported hearing crying. Officials in China's Zhejiang Province rescued the infant on Saturday afternoon. Reports from Chinese media indicated the baby was found in the toilet sewage pipe in a residential building in the city of Jinhua after residents on the fourth floor called the fire department with reports of a baby crying.
