Dollar, not supply, causes record oil - Iran offical

As Losses Mount, GOP Begins Looking in the Mirror

Paul Kane, of The Washington Post, reports: "Since losing 30 seats and their 12-year stranglehold on power in 2006, House Republicans have kept asking themselves the same question: Can it get any worse? On Tuesday, they may get another answer they won't like. With lots of help from Washington -- including more than $1.3 million in campaign cash and a last-minute visit by Vice President Cheney - Mississippi Republicans are desperately trying to retain a congressional seat in one of the most reliably conservative districts in the nation."

When Alzheimer's Hits at 40

Deadly gift from Monsanto to India

To follow up on your articles, Organic Cotton Beats Bt Cotton in India (SiS 27) and Message from Andra Predesh: Return to organic cotton & avoid the Bt cotton trap (SiS 29), I enclose photographs of mealy bugs infested cotton plants in the demonstration plots of different seed companies in Vidarbha: Ganga Kavari, Paras Bbhrahma, and Banny. All of the plots have the Bollgard label. These mealy bugs have never been in our region on any plants before Bt cotton was introduced. I learned about the devastation of cotton in China two years ago. This alerted me to photograph and video the demonstration plots regularly. So, anybody can say with confidence now that the mealy bug has entered Vidarbha cotton fields through the Bt cottonseed.

Now when the cotton plants have died, the mealy bug is shifting to nearby plants. By mid June, farmers will go for the new cotton crop or plant another crop. But before that, the bug will have multiplied like any thing. It has shifted to Congress weed nearby, and many other weeds and plants in gardens.

At the same time I am studying the sudden death of plants. The new generation cotton seeds, called ‘Research Hybrid seeds’; are all male sterile. In short, they are terminator seeds; and proven by the high-level government committee in1993. I have the report of it. The breeder then published an article advising farmers that they should not use the F2 seeds of such hybrids, as the plants coming out of them are
100 percent sterile. Your article, Killing Fields Near You
(ISIS News7/8) confirmed this for me.

I am an organic farmer residing at Yavatmal in the state of Maharashtra. Our organisation, Vidarbha Organic Farmers Association, has been propagating organic farming since 1994. We have been helped a lot by Dr Vandana Shiva. She was the first person to tell us about about terminators. Right now, we are working for her organisation Navdanya.

Judge's Guantanamo Ruling Bodes Ill for System

William Glaberson, of The New York Times: "A decision by a military judge on Friday to disqualify a top Pentagon official from any further role in a Guantanamo war crimes case was a major new challenge to the Bush administration's legal approach to the war on terrorism. The ruling, in the case against Salim Hamdan, a detainee who was a driver for Osama bin Laden, transformed what had been something of a Pentagon soap opera over how to prosecute detainees into a formal ruling that gave new force to critics' accusations of improper political influence over this country's first use of military commissions since World War II."

Edwards: Clinton Didn't Choose Words Well on Race

The Associated Press: "Former Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said Sunday that he thinks Barack Obama will be the party's presidential nominee and that Hillary Rodham Clinton must be careful not to damage the party's prospects in November as she continues her campaign. 'She has to be really careful that she's not damaging our prospects, the Democratic Party, and our cause, for the fall.'"

Domestic Spying Far Outpaces Terrorism Prosecutions

Richard B. Schmitt, of The Los Angeles Times: "The number of Americans being secretly wiretapped or having their financial and other records reviewed by the government has continued to increase as officials aggressively use powers approved after the Sept. 11 attacks. But the number of terrorism prosecutions ending up in court -- one measure of the effectiveness of such sleuthing -- has continued to decline, in some cases precipitously."

People can handle the truth about war

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
by Helen Thomas


Too often in this war, the news media seem to have tried to shield the public from the suffering this war has brought to Americans and Iraqis. It’s not the job of the media to protect the nation from the reality of war. Rather, it is up to the media to tell the people the truth. They can handle it...

Big government responsible for high prices

The Free Liberal
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)


In the past few months, American workers, consumers, and businesses have experienced a sudden and dramatic rise in gasoline prices. In some parts of the country, gasoline costs as much as $4 per gallon. Some politicians claim that the way to reduce gas prices is by expanding the government’s power to regulate prices and control the supply of gasoline. For example, the House of Representatives has even passed legislation subjecting gas stations owners to criminal penalties if they charge more than a federal bureaucrat deems appropriate. Proponents of these measures must have forgotten the 1970s, when government controls on the oil industry resulted in gas lines and shortages. It was only after President Reagan lifted federal price controls that the gas lines disappeared...

Telecom tower plan worries playcentre

The Press | Monday, 12 May 2008

A 22m Telecom cellphone tower is to be built next to Atawhai Playcentre in Nelson.

The playcentre's board, a neighbouring pre-school and Nelson City councillors all oppose the installation of the tower.

However, the telco giant says the Atawhai site, at Nelson's northern entrance, will provide the best coverage. It is one of eight to be built in Nelson for its new-generation 3G wideband network.

Playcentre president Sarah Allen said news of the Atawhai tower came as a shock.

The Truth About Veteran Suicides


Army suicides up 13%
Baltimore Sun


In a tragic new marker of the rising cost of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army’s suicide rate has jumped significantly, according to a report released yesterday at the Pentagon. As soldiers and families coped with repeated combat tours and long separations, the Army said that 115 soldiers took their own lives in 2007, a rate of about 17 per 100,000 soldiers. The Army said the suicide rate among a comparable civilian population is 19.5 suicides per 100,000. But broader Defense Department studies show that suicides among all military personnel in Iraq, including Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps personnel, occur at a rate of about 24 per 100,000, significantly above the civilian rate...
