liberal publications in the US are now turning against GMO labeling.

this is puzzling beyond belief.

LABEL THE FOODS.

if GMO is so cool and healthy.. PROUDLY DISPLAY IT.

This
they say that they don't want to label because of "negative perceptions" about GM

So their job should be to EDUCATE PEOPLE THAT IT IS SAFE! They should be proud of their high technology and scientific endeavors.
Female rapper raped and set on fire after winning freestyle battle

The three degenerate Columbus, Ga. men — Ketorie Glover, 23, Joey Betrail Garron, 28, and Robert Carl Johnson, 23 — decided to avenge their humiliation for losing to a female by deciding to kidnap her, gang rape her, sodomize her, shoot her and set the victim on fire and leave her for dead.

At a house party in Columbus, Ga., about a two-hour drive south of Atlanta, the trio of so-called male rappers met their match in a 36-year-old black female lyricist. During the freestyle battle, she out performed them all. After the third one was defeated by this cocky female rapper, the three men decided to get revenge.

One of the men reportedly pulled out a gun and forced her into a car, according to the Ledger-Enquirer, and then drove to a vacant lot on Farr Road. All three villainous men then took turns gang raping the woman. After they had finished sodomizing her, they doused her with gasoline and set her on fire. To make a heinous crime even worse, one of the men shot her burning body three times and left her to die.

Her smoldering woman was discovered and rushed to a local hospital, barely alive. Reports state that she has finally come out of her coma but remains in critical condition.

All three men were eventually tracked down and arrested and are facing multiple felony charges including aggravated assault, rape, kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated sexual battery, aggravated sodomy, hijacking a motor vehicle and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Students: Transgender Woman Can’t Be Diversity Officer Because She’s a White Man Now

Wellesley College students are okay with him on campus, but not in a leadership position.

A student who was born female felt perfectly comfortable identifying as a man at Wellesley College — until people said he shouldn’t be class diversity officer because he is now a white male.

Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him.

And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome on campus — until the day he announced that he wanted to run for the school’s office of multicultural affairs coordinator, whose job is to promote a “culture of diversity” on campus.

But some students thought that allowing Boatwright to have the position would just perpetuate patriarchy
. They were so opposed, in fact, that when the other three candidates (all women of color) dropped out, they started an anonymous Facebook campaign encouraging people not to vote at all to keep him from winning the position.

“I thought he’d do a perfectly fine job, but it just felt inappropriate to have a white man there,” the student behind the so-called “Campaign to Abstain” said.

“It’s not just about that position either,” the student added. “Having men in elected leadership positions undermines the idea of this being a place where women are the leaders.”

Boatwright told the Times that his high-school friends knew he was transgender, but he identified himself as female on the application to Wellesley because he didn’t want his mom to know. Of course, Wellesley is also a female school, and “it seemed awkward to write an application essay for a women’s college on why you were not a woman,” he said.

“masculine-of-center genderqueer”

We should just give it up. Humanity's done.
Pretty bad when the lgbt community if fighting amongst itself about shit like that.

I'm actually laughing my ass off at that. Fuck those retards.
Shows just how intolerant those people can be,

Millennials love labels. It makes them feel special.

A relatively neat millennial won't shut about how OCD they are. The millennial who can't read a boring text book from cover to cover in one sitting has ADD.

Seen most comic book movies? You guessed it, that millennial is a huge nerd.

Any millennial who has read the God Delusion, and watched a few Neil deGrasse Tyson YouTube videos is officially an erudite intellectual.
They're programmed that way. Poor buggers.

The accidental release of 45 litres of concentrated live polio virus solution into the environment - Belgium

As reported to ECDC by Belgian authorities, on 2 September 2014, following a human error, 45 litres of concentrated live polio virus solution were released into the environment by the pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), in Rixensart city, Belgium. The liquid was conducted directly to a water-treatment plant (Rosieres) and released after treatment in river Lasne affluent of river Dyle which is affluent of the Escaut/Scheldt river. Belgium’s High Council of Public Health conducted a risk assessment that concluded that the risk of infection for the population exposed to the contaminated water is extremely low due to the high level of dilution and the high vaccination coverage (95%) in Belgium.

ECDC's assessment is that the accidental release in the environment of large amounts of live polio virus represents a risk to public health if susceptible populations, such as areas with low polio vaccine coverage, are exposed to contaminated waters or mud. Particularly since the Lasne and Dyle rivers are joining the Escaut/Scheldt river which flows in the southwestern part of the Netherlands where various orthodox protestant communities present a lower polio vaccination coverage, before reaching the North Sea.

Lockheed Skunk Works Says It Has A Nuclear Fusion Reactor





It is the holy grail of cheap and stable energy, yet it has eluded the scientific community for a century. Well, that may finally be about to change once and for all with Compact Fusion Reactor (CFR).

Lockheed's 'bleeding edge' aircraft design and boutique technology development arm, the Skunk Works, has officially announced that they have what they think is a very workable and incredibly small fusion reactor design. If it does indeed work as projected it could change the the world as we know for the better, not just for powering homes and offices all over the world, but for powering ships and even spacecraft and aircraft, the cumulative effect of which would be akin to a restart on the atomic age all over again.

Early production examples of the Compact Fusion Reactor would fit into a shipping container and produce 100MW of power. This output would be enough to power well over a whopping 80,000 homes in the US and is equivalent to one of the Navy's large A4W fission reactors found on Nimitz Class aircraft carriers.

What is most exciting is that the Compact Fusion Reactor would be able to do this without the tons of radioactive material and waste that are currently produced by nuclear fission reactors scattered around the globe. Aviation Week was given exclusive access to the program, and in their expose on this potential energy revolution (which I highly recommend you read) they addressed what the CFR would need to operate and what radioactive material it would leave behind in doing so:

Lockheed estimates that less than 25 kg (55 lb.) of fuel would be required to run an entire year of operations. The fuel itself is also plentiful. Deuterium is produced from sea water and is therefore considered unlimited, while tritium is "bred" from lithium. "We already mine enough lithium to supply a worldwide fleet of reactors, so with tritium you never have too much built up, and that's what keeps it safe. Tritium would be a health risk if there were enough released, but it is safe enough in small quantities. You don't need very much to run a reactor because it is a million times more powerful than a chemical reaction," McGuire notes.

Although the first-generation reactors will have radioactive parts at the ends of their lives, such as some steel elements in the shell, McGuire says the contamination situation "is an order of magnitude better" than that of contemporary fission systems. "There is no long-lived radiation. Fission reactors' stuff will be there forever, but with fusion materials, after 100 years then you are good." Contamination levels for fusion will improve with additional materials research, he believes. "It's been a chicken-and-egg situation. Until we've had a good working fusion system, there has not been money to go off and do the hard-core materials research," McGuire says. "So we believe the first generation is good enough to go out and do, and then it will only improve in time." Old CFR steel shell parts can be disposed of with "a shallow burial in the desert, similar to medical waste today. That's a major difference to today's fission systems."

When it comes to potential meltdowns and the resulting release of deadly radioactive particles associated with them, Lockheed states:

"There is a very minimal amount of radioactive tritium—it's on the order of grams—so the potential release is very minimal. In addition, there is not enough to be a risk of proliferation. Tritium is used in nuclear weapons but in a much larger inventory than would be involved here, and that's because you are continually making just enough to feed back in [to maintain the reaction],"

Beyond the possibility of incredibly plentiful energy and clean water for billions, the implications of a CFR on the transportation world could me massive, as large ships that currently use swimming pools of fossil fuels on a weekly basis could be powered by a propulsion unit that is just a fraction of the size of their massive engines, and runs without the need to carry many thousands of pounds of fuel. The same can be said for air travel, as airliners could be built that would not need fueling during their entire service life. Additionally, high-flying drones could take the place of satellites, or even cell phone towers, for some communications relay work, staying aloft for months or years at a time without the need for fueling.

One of the most exciting potential uses for this new technology is for space travel. The power that a small fusion reactor can potentially generate, and the efficiency of its power generation, could provide a spacecraft with the thrust and energy it needs to make it to Mars and back in a fraction of the time that is currently within the realm possibility.

This all sounds so fantastic. If the Skunk Works' prophesies come true it could change the political and socioeconomic balance of the world forever, and let's face it, boy could the world use some good news. Yet we must keep in mind the fact that we have heard fusion reactor claims many times before, and other research and development tanks are working on other fusion systems as this is being written, but the abundant resources and historic track record of Lockheed's Skunk Works does give the program serious cache. There is also the fact that Lockheed has allowed such a deep look into the program, and their stated time line for making an active prototype (within five years, a production example with ten) is ambitious to the point that it would do the company no good making such claims if they did not think they were truly onto something.

In the end, it will be a wait and see affair to see if this technology turns into a stable, virtually globe saving form of near free energy. The Skunk Work has done some amazing things in the past, and many more things we still are not allowed to know about, but the creation of stable and efficient nuclear fusion concept would be quite the stripe on the Skunk's back.
