Introduction

The US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) revised rule on National Organic Standards (NOS), proposed in March 2000, was finalized in December. For the most part, the standards have been written with care and integrity. For the rest, they attracted over 40,000 comments from the public. The standards were first proposed in 1997 and included proposals to use sewage sludge, irradiation, antibiotics in livestock, and genetically modified organisms. USDA withdrew the proposal after receiving over 275,000 comments from the public– the most comments received on any US agency proposal in history.

Scholarship for a student from Gaza to study in the UK (Rana’s Story)

The Global Right to Education Project (based in LSE and other London Universities including Imperial College) helps underprivileged students, in conflict zones, to maximise their educational opportunities abroad. The vision is for students to contribute back to their communities.

(LONDON)  Rana Alshami is from Gaza and has received an offer to study a Master’s degree in Law at a top UK University: the School of Oriental and Asian Studies (SOAS) in September 2015.  Her neighbourhood of Khan Younis was directly struck during the current conflict in Gaza, and she has had to flee her home.

There is only one obstacle preventing her from fulfilling her university place; she does not have the financial means to cover the tuition fee (£16,425). Funding and bursaries are unfortunately scarce; hence she will also need an additional amount to cover her maintenance fees and travel costs (at least £7,088) which will be raised separately. We will be raising money in two phases: phase 1 (tuition fees); and phase 2 (maintenance and travel) – please see ‘Official Campaign Letter’ for details. 

Scotland Independence vote rigging exposed: smoking gun evidence of vote being rigged ?

(DUNDEE)  In Dundee, a strong YES area, the count was suspended twice due to fire alarms. The turnout in the strong YES area of Dundee was 78.8%, which is lower than the 85% turnout in Scotland as a whole In Dundee, ‘Yes’ ballot papers were spotted on a ‘No’ table.

ISIS, Scotland and the politics of mimicry

ISISScotlandThe rise of nationalism and tribalism is prevalent throughout Europe and much of the world. This week Britain is on the verge of breaking up. Half of the Scots prefer to split from the Kingdom.

Gilad Atzmon Global News Centre

(LONDON)   Is the fact that half of the Scots want to split from Britain and the news that hundreds of young Muslim Brits are fighting with Jihadi militant groups in Syria connected?

Of course they are. These two social phenomena are intrinsically linked, yet in the intellectual desert in which we live, no one dares to address the subject. The boundaries of our curiosity are limited by our deference to political correctness and Zionist sensitivities.

Definition of MUTINY – forcible or passive resistance to lawful authority; especially: concerted revolt (as of a naval crew) against discipline or a superior officer.

(SALEM)  I became a bit of an expert on the military legal system during my time as a U.S. Marine. I don’t know if it was half me and half the Marine Corps, or just how it all came to be the mess that it was; but I do feel that I became a qualified expert of sorts at being a Marine troublemaker. In Marine Corps jargon I was a ‘Shitbird’ and believe me, it was more like a club than just a word used to belittle us.

FED UP Rally in Washington, DC days away…

fedup

See below for more details.

Maybe it’s time for the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary to take up the investigation of prescription opioids/heroin initiated two years ago by the Finance Committee — and dropped like a hot coal.

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 27 and 28 I will be speaking at the FED UP Rally in Washington, DC calling attention to the national health epidemic – prescription opioids/heroin and the mounting death toll.  The FED UP flyer is shown along with a link for chartered bus service to the Rally.  It is anticipated there will be a huge outpouring of families from all over the country who are “fed up” with the FDA picking the pockets of pharma by approving more and more opioids as a pay to play.  This accomplished by pharma’s genius marketing strategy “the undertreatment of pain” in the country.  The FDA bought into pharma’s lies and it proved profitable to all concerned.

Shame on Congress

congressIs Congress thinking about the threat of another war? Are they thinking about the thousands of our veterans who need help? Is the VA scandal settled? No to these issues and many others.

John J. Bury Global News Centre

(MEDIA, Pa.)   Congress does it again. They took a 5 week recess in August to campaign, went back to DC September 8th. Now another recess days later to campaign. What is wrong with Congress? The ISIS threat is on the table, our President needs backing on this explosive situation, There are Congressional Bills requiring attention, where is Congress, on vacation to campaign.
