We keep reading about the dangers of pesticides, but we a re desensitized to the meaning of all the terminal medical conditions that we are opening ourselves to when we ear, breath and drink pesticides contaminated food: when toxicological terms (words) become the image of Cancer, and death, only then can one really appreciate the “term”

Greece: “A promise from the army has been obtained to not intervene against a civil uprising”

It is always enlightening to hear the frank assessment of a diplomat upon leaving the service, once unshackled from “the patriotic art of lying for one’s country”, as 19th Century American journalist Ambrose Bierce described the craft.

Leonidas Chrysanthopoulos was a career diplomat with the Greek foreign ministry. As a junior officer with the service in the 1970s, he helped assure the then freshly democratic nation’s accession to the European Union (at the time the EEC). He was at different times Athens’ ambassador to Poland, Albania and Canada, and finally the director general of EU Affairs in the ministry.

Last year, he finally resigned as secretary general of the…

By Juergen Baetz and Karel Janicek, The Associated Press

Traces of horse have been found in meatballs labeled as beef and pork for Swedish global furniture giant Ikea, according to authorities in the Czech Republic.

The horse meat was found in one-kilogram packs of frozen meat balls made in Sweden and shipped to the Czech Republic for sale in Ikea stores there, the Czech State Veterinary Administration said.

It is the latest discovery in a deepening scandal over the discovery of horse meat in ready meals sold as beef in supermarkets in Ireland, the UK and other European countries.

Ikea furniture stores also sell typical Swedish food.

A total of 1,675 pounds of the meatballs…

Biological Hazard in USA on Monday, 25 February, 2013 at 20:01 (08:01 PM) UTC.

Description
Two men have been stricken with tularemia, a potentially deadly disease commonly known as rabbit fever. Officials believe both men were infected while rabbit hunting in eastern North Carolina. Rabbit fever is caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis, according to the National Institutes of Health. Though the disease is rare, it can be fatal if left untreated. Symptoms of tularemia include fever, joint and muscle stiffness, skin ulcers, diarrhea, sweating and weight loss. People infected with rabbit fever can also develop pneumonia. “It can make you very, very sick,” Marilyn Haskell, epidemiologist with the North Carolina Division of Public Health, told the Wilson Times. The disease can be treated with…

Our Bumbastories reporter in the field (He’s an outstanding man in his field. In fact he’s out there standing in the field most of the time, he is). Well, he has bravely filed the following news update:

The Cement Elephant Sculptures Move!!!!!

“How can that be?” you ask.

Well, look for yourself.

Our intrepid reporter took the above photo back in October. And now, look again at the second photo taken in February by the very same intrepid reporter who clearly has a nose for a scoop (or is it a scoop for a nose? No that’s the elephant). You can see it! There it is! The elephant, the cement elephant has definitely moved!!!! How can it be? How can a cement elephant move?

Some things are apparently beyond human understanding. Quantum physics, cement elephants, it’s beyond human understanding! But wait! Perhaps Franklin, the cement elephant universally esteemed for his wisdom, can help us out.

Franklin, oh great…

Today’s Birthday: JOHN HARVEY KELLOGG (1852)


John Harvey Kellogg (1852)

Remembered today as the co-creator of corn flakes, Kellogg was a physician and food reformer. He founded a sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan, based on the principles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in conjunction with his own eccentric ideas about health. He and his brother invented a flaked breakfast cereal for patients, but a feud developed between the two over flake recipes and business rights. At the end of his life, he sent his brother an apology, but it was not received in time—why? More… Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: THE BUFFALO CREEK FLOOD (1972)


The Buffalo Creek Flood (1972)

More than 100 people were killed and thousands more left injured or homeless when a dam in West Virginia‘s rural Buffalo Creek Valley gave way. It had been built out of sediment left over from coal mining and collapsed after a heavy rainfall, sweeping away two more dams in its path. The collapse unleashed approximately 130 million gallons of black waste water onto the residents of the valley below. A study done 17 years later found that residents still suffered what lasting psychological effect? More… Discuss

 

MEDITERRANEAN DIET MAY PROMOTE HEART HEALTH


Mediterranean Diet May Promote Heart Health

People who eat a Mediterranean diet have been shown to have healthier hearts, but previous research has not ruled out lifestyle and other factors as the cause for this. The results of a new study, however, lend credence to the notion that the diet itself is responsible for reducing heart disease and stroke risk. Researchers randomly assigned participants, all of whom had diabetes or other cardiovascular risk factors, to one of three diet groups and found that those asked to follow a Mediterranean diet were nearly a third less likely to develop cardiovascular disease than those on a control diet emphasizing low-fat dairy products, grains, fruits, and vegetables. More… Discuss

 

JET PACKS


Jet Packs

Jet packs began to appear in science fiction long before science made them a reality. Toward the end of WWII, scientists began working seriously to develop a wearable propulsion device that would enable a single user to fly. Now a reality, jet packs are prohibitively expensive and difficult to control. Because jet pack flights are brief, most do not achieve the minimum altitude necessary to deploy a parachute in the event of a breakdown. What is currently the only practical use for jet packs? More… Discuss
