Genetic Roullette – The Gamble Of Our Lives

Some day soon I hope to be able to say. GMO crops in the USA was a dark chapter in our food history that thankfully is no more a reality, but something that we need to remember so as not to repeat these mistakes again.

This documentary is really a great watch and the best thing I’ve seen come down the pipeline since Food Inc.  I am not sure when this was made, but I believe it was some time in 2012. By the time you see this post, Obama, if he did the right thing, will have vetoed the HR 933 that had a completely unrelated ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ slipped in there.

And now, Genetic Roullette:

OK, it’s become a shell game of sorts trying to keep a copy of this up on youtube.

Here’s the latest:

When man thinks he can play God, the result is a major drag. Just because we have the scientific knowledge and ability to do something doesn’t mean we SHOULD do that thing.

 

**UPDATE**

I regret to inform you that late Tuesday night, March 27, 2013 President Barack Obama signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law. President NObama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the urgent pleas of more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution. I am so not surprised, just disappointed.

Ronald Reagan’s Words Truer Than Ever Almost 50 Years Later

What Can We Learn From A 50 Year Old Speech

About The State Of the United States Of America?

Ronald Reagan Official Presidential Portrait

 

Will history teach us nothing? Maybe we are just unwilling to learn. Eternal vigilance is the requirement for liberty. So stop sleeping on your watch!

When I see what is happening politically in my country today and compare it to this speech, I can’t help but notice a lot of the same things seem to be the ‘issues’ of the day. Government overspending, a growing trend leaning towards bigger socialistic government at the expense of personal freedoms. All in the excuse of big G “Daddy” knows best. It’s like if we’re not constantly on top of things, it all starts going to hell in a hand basket very quickly. 

This is Reagan’s speech when he was campaigning for Barry Goldwater back in October 1964. Needless to say, he out-shined Goldwater and this was a sign of Ronald’s next step in his professional career.

Fact– Reagan won every state (electoral) in his 1984 re-election except walter mondale’s home state of minnesota and D.C.

 

Happy Brithday Ronnie. We miss ya.

Dream Realization: Wisdom and Insights From Will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas

July 25, 2012

A Day In The Life: Will.i.am

There’s a new series I found on Hulu called A Day In The Life. Their first episode showcases a day in the life of billionaire Richard Branson.

So far, I’ve only watched Richard Branson, Girl Talk, Will.i.am and Timothy Ferriss. Besides offering a glimpse into each of their lives, there are some good nuggets of wisdom i take away from. Even if it’s not something they said, it could be how they go about doing things, how they interact with others, their mannerisms, etc. The shows are disappointingly short – less than 25 minutes long.

In series one, episode 3, they follow around Will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas fame.

Will.i.am seems quite grounded and humble in his success which he has worked long and hard at. The show catches up with him while the Peas are performing in Paris. In the car, he is amazed at how once upon a time it was all just in his head and now 10s of 1000s of people are waiting to hear them play.

He also expressed qualities that helped him get to where he is today:

  • Dedication
  • Focus
  • Discipline
  • Patience
  • Passion for his craft
  • Thick skin – have had to endure a whole bunch, heart broken, screwed in business deals, etc. But through all that learning to turn those negatives into positives.

Finally, he says why he was able to accomplish these things is due to his close friends who trust and support each other. Having good people around you is one of the cardinal rules to reach your goals.

Uncontacted Tribes In Amazon Brazil | In Peril

Evidence of Uncontacted Tribes In Amazon

Footage Released  For the First Time, February 2011

I first learned about this from a client and meant to post it back in Febuary.

This particular tribe is located on the Peru – Brazil border.  It’s amazing that in this day and age that there is actually still indigenous people on the planet.  They must wonder what sort of mysterious metal birds jets are…. Or in this case – what the helicopter was. I wouldn’t be surprised if their eyesight was good enough to spot the people inside the chopper and thought, who are these people of the sky?

What’s an urgent concern is logging companies are getting closer and closer to these people and if they are allowed to continue the pillaging, these people will lose their home and most likely their life as they know it. That would be a shame.

I know what certain people of the western world might think. “What can little ole’ me possibly do?” Or, “big deal, there’s nothing we can do about it. Not my problem”  Or, “who cares? Those people are savages anyway and need to get some clothes on and start shopping at Walzmart.”

Now for some related intellectual commentary:

I read an article back in October 2010 that stated a new species was being discovered every 3 days in the Amazon for the last 10 years. Species like a baldheaded parrot, a blue-fanged tarantula, and bright red catfish. One in 10 species is found in the Amazon. Such a rich source of life doesn’t deserve to be turned into mono-crop bullshit for our endless hunger for cheap meat. (that’s grain crops grown to feed all the cattle that we in turn scarf down).

Yup, cattle ranching is largely responsible for the destruction of the rainforest. We’ve lost 17% of it in the last 50 years.  That is SERIOUSLY effed up.  So again, I ask, how arrogant and/or apathetic are we?  Who are we to think we can keep doing this and be allowed to live on this planet?  This brings up a good argument for going vegetarian.

Breakdown of recorded discoveries from 1999 to 2009:

  • 637 plants
  • 257 fish
  • 216 amphibians
  • 55 reptiles
  • 16 birds
  • 39 mammals

These aren’t all that’s there – just the ones we noticed and not counting all the species we knew about before.

Tying this altogether – don’t you think that if. . .  oh hell, who am I kidding? I mean WHEN we decide to make contact with these people, that once communication barriers are overcome,  they could teach US so much about all the animals and plants in the rapidly disappearing rainforest?  I think from a selfish standpoint, that’s a worthy reason to try to save them.  After all, that’s the sort of argument that might hold water to those in power who see them as a nuisance and just want to take the resources for their own gain.

F-N-F | Friday Night Film | The Future of Food

F-N-F | Friday Night Film April 8th, 2011

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, healthy lifestyle is part of my thing.

The Future Of Food (2004)

This documentary came out November 13, 2007 according to the info on Hulu  – less than 4 years ago as of this posting. However, when checking out the history of the film on it’s OWN website, I found this:

The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops. Indicative of its popularity, the Future of Food showed to a sold out audience of 1,500 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2004, a benefit for Slow Food, where it was introduced by Alice Waters. [source]

Like Food Inc. and The World According To Monsanto, it is an eye opener for many as to what’s being done to our food supply.  Remember, knowledge is power and ignorance breeds complacency and allows for ease of control.  Keep informed!

The Future Of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade

Enjoy the film:
