Re: GMO report

The DNA of even an organic, non-"GMO" tomato is different than the DNA of a tomato that was grown 100 years ago.

But the methods of getting an organic/non-gmo tomato hybrid today are still the same as they were 100 years [more]

Re: GMO report

Science is not pick and choose.

Nutrition/consumable science is wrong all the time.

Margarine is safer than butter.

Don't eat eggs, too much cholesterol.

All fats are bad, load up on carbs.

Re: GMO report

Not to be contentious AM but the same type of study was used to present the "97%" argument concerning global warming/climate change. Are you suggesting that study was worthless?

The Academy receives no compensation from the government for its services...

Not sure what they mean by "no compensation" - since they're 85% government funded.

Re: Movement conservative first objectives

Ultimately I think the problem is too many people, too many of those uneducated/unskilled, and not enough jobs to go around. And I think all of those things are going to get worse before they get better (assuming they ever get [more]

Re: Movement conservative first objectives

I agree, but the fact that it's even possible for a full-time American auto worker to qualify for food stamps is somewhat startling. And depressing.

With enough kids/dependents, anyone can end up on food stamps.

Re: Don't blame Sanders if HRC loses.

Look at the election results for 2008 and 2012 for Ohio, Florida, Penn, Virginia - the winner was determined by 200,000-300,000 votes. They're called "Swing States" because they could swing either way.

Did you have a 3 month emergency fund?

In my early/mid 20's I got a small inheritance ($18,000) kept $6,000 as an emergency fund and left the other $12K in stocks until I went to grad school at 26 and needed a car. But had about $6K [more]

Re: Shop at Target, pee at WalMart.

The Target closest to my house has typical male/female multi-stall restrooms near the cashier area. But it also has a single uni-sex bathroom next to the pharmacy. The multi-stall ladies room is usually messy and many of the stalls don't lock [more]

Re: Malia Obama chooses Harvard

Except for youth, I don't envy anything Ms. Obama enjoys.

Getting a top-notch primary-school education and getting to spend 8 years growing up in the White House. I definitely envy those things.

Re: Avoid the trap of subscription marketing

Yeah, as a woman (they seem to market to women) I hate when I see friends on FB post about nonsense like this. It's like didn't we learn from the BMG/Columbia House tape/CD scams of the 80's/90's.
