“WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of

Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new

Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely

FLUORIDE, TEETH AND THE ATOMIC BOMB

                              BY JOEL GRIFFITHS AND CHRIS BRYSON

                                          Waste Not #414

http://www.fluoridealert.org/wastenot414.htm

One of the most controversial aspects

of the research that allegedly culminated in the epidemic is that it was

funded by the US atomic energy commission, which was anxious to discover

what might happen to communities when large numbers were wiped out by

nuclear war. While there are no texts or recorded speeches by Neel

explaining his conduct, Prof Turner believes the only explanation is that he

was trying to test controversial eugenic theories like the Nazi scientist

Josef Mengele. He quotes another anthropologist who read the manuscript as

saying: "Mr Tierney's analysis is a case study of the dangers in science of

the uncontrolled ego, of lack of respect for life, and of greed and

self-indulgence. It is a further extraordinary revelation of malicious and

perverted work conducted under the aegis of the atomic energy commission."

03Oct2000

The idea that a CNS is automatically the highest form of life could go the way of spontaneous generation.  Francesco Redi disproved spontaneous generations in 1668.  This was the start of humans being able to prove that we are not alone in wanting to survive.  What level of intelligence is needed to survive?  Currently most people could say that being organic and having a “DNA source code” allowing replication would be the minimum standard.  Using a DNA source code as the foundation of intelligence could allow the hypothesis of: oil being intelligent if it is the by-product of bacteria like Thomas Gold of Harvard believes.  

This paper is to present two hypnosis.  The first one is that curtailing new ideas by “Food Laws” is detrimental to free speech and continuing technology.  The second hypnosis is that local opinion is important Internationally, and that stifling those opinions can be detrimental.  The saying “From the mouth of a child” shows that professionals can sometimes miss obvious conclusions, or forget the foundations their conclusions are based on.

The end result of this paper is that NAFTA, bio-chips, Mondex, Corporations as “juristic persons”, and a belief in all knowledge being in a computer could be detrimental.  What if Biochips could develop a fungal infection?  It could also be like being in a library that none of the books have titles, all information, and no new connections.  The brain processes sound energy, light energy and more, has a topography that bio- chips can not match, because of the potential of having to take the wiring from the originating organs – eyes, ears, ect.

I may come up with a novel idea but these ideas should be nothing more than what a stockbroker or a bank loan officer needs to speculate on in authorizing a loan.  When it gets to the point of individual is not being allowed to have new ideas, that they are the property of corporations, something is wrong.

Will add to this but I am attempting to post this to show that the propaganda put out by advertising companies by branding someone like me an environmentalist or alarmist at worst or a non “peer reviewed” layperson at best is damaging to all involved.

People should be allowed to keep their own intellectual property and be able to converse about their ideas at a local or global level.

For the philosophies that the Bush family seems to have advocated like backing Hitler,  and more are not the ideas that will help us.

Opening Argument

                Science Fiction and Technical writing may finance my Physics degree, but the way food slander laws are multiplying I may not be able to write about anything but computer programs.  The new slander laws “seem” to actually be over intellectual property rights, so how can they be wrong?

                The current laws have multiple problems, but the first, and main problem is that they stifle the creativity of writers.  The stifling of individual rights was the basis of a 1950 book called “1984” by George Orwell and genetic speculation was the basis of the 1932 book “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.  These books show that the idea of a corporation having a monopoly and of genetic speculation made money for these writers.  Now it seems as if corporations are trying to have a monopoly on the creative ideas. 

                Creative ideas have been the basis of many new businesses and some of those businesses have gone belly up.  Currently some corporations are selling Genetically Modified seed to farmers and instead of taking the risks that are part of creating a new business they are using the farmer as a scrape goat, by making the farmer pay the price of experimental field trails.  This paper addresses the some forms of genetic engineering as a business fad.  Some fads like the wearing of wigs by members of British Parliament allow people to remember the foundation of the laws the Parliament is based on, other fads that can not face the light of public scrutiny and speculation will go the way of the male cod piece. 

                The nursery rhyme “Ring Around The Rosie” has it’s origins from the London Plague of

is based on the skin discolorations that signaled the start of  about the Plague devastating London in 1665. 

2nd Opening Argument

                I found out that the brain is 60 to 70 percent fat, and I could think of all kinds of story lines.

1) Since the brain is an energy source and an intelligence matrix, speculating on how many other energy sources could have intelligence, possible suspects would be the sun, crude oil, nuclear items, and giant red woods.   What kind of intelligence would be required?  I puzzled over that question, and considered my in house examples of an cat and several tanks of tropical fish.  Sitting in front ot the 50 gal tank gave me the answer.  Basic intelligence could be defined as a short attention span but a long memory about items needed for survival.  So, what kind of survival would a microbe like bacteria need to know about?  Well it seems as if bacteria can decode and use different types of (DNA) food, some bacteria can even convert toxic chemicals.   Is it possible for microbes that bud or clone to have DNA memories that span the beginning of the world?  Could bacteria (that survive radiation) drift through space and enter our through the hole in our ozone layer?  If so what kind of DNA source code would it have?  Would it have originated on a world that blew it’s self up?  What would radiation resistant bacteria consider acceptable as a means of survival? 

Fungus, an microbe that we use but can also have toxins that can kill us.   If survival is intelligence “or” intelligence is based on survival, what other types of intelligence would want to survive?  Would fungus want to survive and what would survival be. 

This line of thinking led to Confucius,

the Black Death,

London Plague,

Irish Potato Famine,

Ergot of Rye,

an article that refers to problems from at

                A chemicals cure seems worse than the disease and pathogen resistant crops are out there.

                Chemicals are turning up or being added to such diverse things as cigarettes to rain.

Chemicals can affect a rudimentary nervous system (snail), lymph glands, or the higher nervous system (brain) of a human being. 

CNS (Central Nervous System), it seems as if many diseases that affect humans have to have a intermediate stage within a simple “nervous” system of a plant or snail.   (I need to find a word that implies a cellerar level – beginning of the nervous system) dif. Between genetic to cell, contagious diseases do they rewrite the DNA, is that why we “can” develop and immunity?

Drugs such as Ritalin are not effective as a band aid, they can cover up the symptoms but the damage is still being done, and some time the drugs themselves add to the damage.  Ref: it seems as if children that were already on drugs did the school shootings in America.

All chemicals are systematic and are (drank) uptaken by the plant and / or absorbed by the plant stomata, washing will not remove them.  Put a stalk of celery in a glass of red food dye and a few dyes latter you will see the dye as it travel up the celery by osmosis.

GM plants “seem “ to need more chemicals; some of these crops are developed to need more chemicals.

Chemicals can take up to 10 years or more to break down, some break down in to forms that are even deadlier than the original chemical.

IQ was thought to be genetic, propaganda to keep slaves.  Blond jokes seem to have originated because of blond ‘slavs’ being the slaves, and the Hitler era pushed that, how many true blonds were there in his higher command.  If you read Mark Twain in the Hapsburg / Austrian legal system you will see that it already had things like filer busters like the American system has.  The definition of a human and human rights were being debated to the determent of those that wanted to keep their slaves.  In America the black American was singled out, in many European states it was the blond ‘slav’.  I do not know if there could be a genetic basis to IQ but your IQ or instinct / ability to survive can be taken away if you do not have the right nutriention.

3rd opening argument

               

This is beginning to look as if I will have several papers that start with different themes out of this rough draft.  So, on with number 3.

In connecting the dots there are many things that do not make sense about NAFTA.  NAFTA has helped mess up communications to the point that we are having a world wide problem with different fungal types, from mold spores in the air to red tides for the last several years.   Antibiotics, sugar and other chemicals that kill the bacteria that is beneficial to us in the same situation as agar from seaweed or irradiated meat that has contacted air. 

When the bacteria that is beneficial to us is killed by antibiotics, sugar, or other chemicals it leaves us open ground for fungus to invade 

  If you do write about this problem you run the risk of being slapped with a law suit

               

Summary:

                Why would anyone want to deregulate banks and savings and loans, then possibly go to the extent of allowing insurance companies to do finance and investment.    When insurance companies are traded on the international market and if you have your money in an insurance company – who owns your money?

It has already been shown that items from a plant can exist through natural (bee) processing, and effect humans.

“Tansy ragwort contains at least six pyrrolizidine alkaloids which by themselves are not toxic.  When combined with liver enzymes after ingestion they are converted to pyrroles which result in liver dysfunction and sometimes death.”

                In the late 1950’s a Nobel prize was awarded to Dr. Lederberg for finding out that bacteria can recombine in sexual ways.  This could mean that human reproduction has saved us from micros, fungusand other problems involved in cloning

Looking back at the debate over diapers, from our perspective in this year 2000,

Could the chemical companies want the heat taken off of them – how many chemical companies are (along or part) with the diaper companies – or could some people have played them off of each other, to make laws allowing corporations to have more rights.   Anyway, it looks as if this debate will start up again. 

                My take on this is that – an individual mother that uses cloth dipers is also paying the city she lives in for whatever power and water is used, by buying the disposables she is giving the manufacturing money and the utility money to another “entity” that may not even bank in the city that the manufacturing plant is in.  Diaper links with the hazards that disposables can have are below, more links that are applicable are in my “Intellectual Property Rights” section.  The links in the other section deal with trade and “juristic persons” (Ralph Nader’s article about S. Africa’s new constitution risking autocratic rule by big corporations) .

Your baby will spend about 25,000 hours in diapers and need about 6,000 diaper changes during the first years of life. Your decision to use disposable or cloth diapers, will have a great impact on your baby’s comfort and health, and on your peace of mind and finances. The 90’s cloth diaper systems are so easy to use (no soaking, no pins).

At a meeting of the Geological Society of America held last Fall in Phoenix, Robert Brenner of Yale University and Gary

Landis of the U. S. Geological Survey reported the results of a QMS analysis of ancient air bubbles trapped in amber. They obtained a remarkable result. The atmosphere of the Earth 80 million years ago was discovered to have 50% more oxygen than modern air. Brenner and Landis found that for all gas samples taken from amber 80 million years old the oxygen content ranged between 25% to 35% and averaged about 30% oxygen. Cretaceous air was supercharged with oxygen.

Fingers pointed at mosquito spray for L.I.'s lobster dieoff  --  By DAVE SALTONSTALL  -- 

August 7, 2000  --  Web posted at: 3:36 PM EDT (1936 GMT)

http://www.nydailynews.com

Now, however, many area lobstermen, and a growing number of scientists, believe that New York City's aerial spraying of pesticides last fall to combat the West Nile virus, along with huge runoffs from Hurricane Floyd, may have combined to trigger the lobster kill.  More than 10 million lobsters, or 90% of stock, are thought to have died last fall in the western part of the Long Island Sound, where catches remain one-fifth of what they were last year.

Researchers say the pesticide theory begins with a simple fact: Lobsters are bugs. Like mosquitoes, they are arthropods, or members of the same genealogical family.

Lobsters also are known to be extremely sensitive to insecticides, in many cases, even more susceptible than insects. But research suggests that although pesticides such as malathion may well have played a role in the kill, the story probably is much more complicated.

Chesapeake Bay Still Struggling with Pollution

http://ens.lycos.com/ens/sep2000/2000L-09-21-06.html

By Cat Lazaroff

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland, September 21, 2000 (ENS) - The Chesapeake Bay ecosystem is dangerously out of balance, says the conservation group the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The group’s annual "State of the Bay Report," released Wednesday, shows that despite modest improvements since the 1980s, key Bay systems are still in trouble.

Conservationists say the state of the Chesapeake Bay, bordered by Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, is an illustration of the problems facing all of the nation’s coastal wetlands.

"On balance, the Bay is in somewhat better shape than it was 15 years ago," said Baker. "But continued water quality problems, as evidenced in the nutrient runoff and algae blooms during the rainy summer of 2000, and the over-stressed crab fishery demonstrate the complexity of Bay restoration."

An international team of scientists, working as part of the Caspian Environment Program's Ecotoxicology Project (ECOTOX), has now concluded canine distemper virus infection was the primary cause of this die-off.

The Caspian seal is listed as Vulnerable on the World Conservation Union-IUCN Red List. From April to June over 11,000 Caspian seals were found dead along the Kazakhstan coast and an unknown number of dead seals were also reported from the Russian, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan sectors of the Caspian Sea. Reports of an increased mortality rate were still being received as late as August.

Microscopic lesions, characteristic of canine distemper, were found in the seal tissues and infection with canine distemper virus was confirmed by serological and molecular methods.

These findings in seals from several geographically dispersed regions of the Caspian Sea provide strong evidence that canine distemper virus infection was the primary cause of the disease outbreak.

Arctic Wildlife Wounded and Scarred by Pollution

http://ens.lycos.com/ens/sep2000/2000L-09-18-11.html

MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada, September 18, 2000 (ENS) - A new survey of hunters and elders in Canada's far north has found troubling signs of pollution's effect on wildlife.

"One time I have hunted a seal in the summer, and everything about the seal was unhealthy," said Koalie Kooneeliusie, a hunter from Qikirtarjuaq. "Internal organs were swollen. I have seen seals with patches of skin missing. The skin looked as if it was taken out, as if cut out. The skin had holes in them."

"Perhaps one of the most interesting observations that was made of seals, walruses, and narwhals was the presence of round wounds in the skin," said the survey report.

"These were described as looking like burns or that a circular bit of skin was removed. A similar abnormality found on a walrus in Arctic Bay in March was analyzed and determined to be caused by the strain of bacteria that is responsible for the flesh eating disease."

Colorado farmers Galen Travis and Jim Dobler have seen the future, and it stinks. Just upwind of their grain fields, a company called Midwest Farms, owned by hog entrepreneur Ronald Houser, plans to build an $80 million facility that will raise 450,000 hogs a year. From Colorado to the Carolinas, enterprising growers like Houser and agribusiness giants such as Cargill and Continental Grain are building such livestock factories to mass-produce hogs for packers like Hormel Foods and John Morrell.

Sea Sickness.(pollution, algae blooms, and climate change affect coral

reefs and other marine organisms)

Author/s: Janet Raloff

Marine epidemiology comes of age

Nor is bleaching the only threat to corals. Increasingly, Cervino points out, these

colonies are also exhibiting infections, tumors, and "obscure" lesions. "We've

been going to photos of corals from as far back as the 1930s," he says, and find

no sign of many of these diseases.

Over the past 15 years, for instance, "there has been a very striking increase in

the frequency and extent of harmful algal blooms," notes JoAnn M. Burkholder,

an aquatic botanist at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. HEED's data

now link many of these blooms of poison-producing algae to pollution (SN:

9/27/97, p. 202) and a widespread warming of coastal and shallow waters.

Moreover, Burkholder observes, HEED's data suggest that the ecological

impacts of these blooms are more pervasive than most biologists had realized.

Until recently, scientists typically investigated marine disease outbreaks as

isolated incidents. The idea that some might be linked struck Epstein when he

began ruminating about a host of events in 1987.

Sharks

Thirty-four additional species will be monitored for data collection only; these are generally small, deep water sharks caught in swordfish and tuna long line fishing.   22. Impact and Effect: MEDium and PRODuct The shark is the apex predator of the world's oceans.  If the shark population is decimated the marine food chain will have to adjust: sting rays and octopi will grow in numbers and their prey will decrease in number (as noted, octopi feed on lobster).   23. Urgency and Lifetime: MEDium and 20-60 years     No one knows for sure the numbers of sharks in the world's oceans. Sampling indicates the following species may already be near extinction: mako, elephant fish, lemon, hammerhead, great white. Shark lifetimes depend on the species. For example, the life spans of the species deemed by the NMFS as the 2 most important species differ by 40 years; the estimated life span of the blacktip shark is 21 years while that of the sandbar is 60 years.

MOBILE, Ala., Sept. 11 —  Jellyfish are swarming through the northern Gulf of Mexico in unprecedented numbers, signaling an ecological shift that could mean sweeping and catastrophic changes for Gulf fish populations. Hordes of jellies are positioned in prime spawning areas just

as breeding season for many popular gamefish kicks into high gear. Scientists say the animals have already started eating eggs and larva at an alarming rate.

SALTON SEA, California, August 30, 2000 (ENS) - At least 339 endangered brown pelicans have died at the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge so far this year. The dead birds are victims of

avian botulism, an annual problem that plagues the Salton Sea, one of the most important stopovers from migratory birds flying along the Pacific coast of North America.

Red tide spreading along Texas Gulf Coast

http://europe.cnn.com/2000/NATURE/09/25/texas.redtide.ap/index.html

September 25, 2000

Web posted at: 1:36 PM EDT (1736 GMT)

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) -- A bloom of toxic red tide algae is spreading along the Texas Gulf Coast, shutting down some oyster fishing and killing millions of fish whose rotting remains are fouling beaches.

State environmental officials say it's the largest concentration of red tide since 1986, when more than 22 million fish died in four months.

-

High concentrations of the algae called red tide produce a toxin that kills fish by affecting the central nervous system.

For humans eating contaminated fish or shellfish, the toxin can cause numbness, dizziness, nausea, fever and muscle paralysis. The most serious cases can result in respiratory arrest and death. In addition, people who swim in affected bodies of water can suffer breathing and eye irritation.

Mass extinction traced to oceanic methane burp

(AP) -- Huge reservoirs of methane trapped beneath the ocean floor rapidly escaped during prehistoric global warming and depleted much of the sea's oxygen, according to new research into why many forms of life suddenly vanished 183 million years ago.

The findings, reported in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature, shed new light not only on the disappearance of as many as 80 percent of some deep-sea species but also a process suspected in other prehistoric mass extinctions.

U.S. and Japan Duel over Lethal Whale Research

http://ens.lycos.com/ens/sep2000/2000L-09-06-01.html

NEW YORK, New York, September 6, 2000 (ENS) - U.S. Commerce Secretary Norman Mineta has given unofficial notice to Japan that he is considering economic sanctions against Japan to exert pressure for a halt to Japan's lethal whale research program.

Beginning with the killing of about 300 minke whales in 1987, one year after the International Whaling Commission imposed a ban on commercial whale hunting, the Japanese research program now claims 440 minke whales annually in the Antarctic. In 1994, Japan expanded its lethal research to the North Pacific with the additional killing of 100 minke whales.

This year, Japan announced plans to kill an additional 10 sperm and 50 Bryde's whales.

Legalized Drugs:

--- It seems as if we have had legalized drugs (in the form of Ritalin) since at least 1990, and this is what the result is.

With alcohol there are smugglers but alcohol has standards for the smugglers to check and competition from good distributors to deal with.  From what we have seen of the legal distributors of these drugs – they do not have the standards that our liquor companies have now, if marijuana and many other drugs were legalized what standards would they have with that kind of competition, or are they making a market for their drugs – or for bio-chips?----- Piper Creations 22Sept2000

INTRODUCTION OF THE METHAMPHETAMINE ELIMINATION ACT OF 1997 –

HON. JERRY LEWIS  --  Sonny Bono (one of the co-sponsers)

(Extension of Remarks - March 20, 1997)

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?r105:2:./temp/~r1056SPRf5::

Methamphetamine is fast becoming the crack epidemic of the 1990's. Meth production and use is a nationwide problem, cutting across all income and racial divisions; the impact, however, is disproportionally felt in California. The Drug Enforcement Agency [DEA] has identified California as a `source country' of methamphetamine with literally hundreds of clandestine laboratories, or `clan labs,' located throughout the State.

Clan labs have proliferated at such a pace that California officials now consider them major threats to the public, law enforcement and public communities, even the environment. In just 1996, the Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement [BNE] raided 835 clan labs in California, up from 465 in 1995. Just think of that 835 labs seized in California in 1 year--almost one every 10 hours. Clearly, California is on the front line in the war on methamphetamine.

As a result, California is in desperate need to help to fight this wicked drug. The Methamphetamine Elimination Act would provide $18 million to the Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement to fight meth through a 5-point strategy.  Specifically, funds from this legislation will be used to hire, train, and equip 126 sworn and nonsworn law enforcement staff to do the following:

Leahy Unveils Comprehensive Agriculture Antitrust Bill ...       

                                http://leahy.senate.gov/press/200004/000412.html

Bill Responds To Growing Market Clout Of Large Agribusinesses, Would Likely Reign In Powerful Dairy Conglomerate, Suiza Foods, That Has Been Taking Over New England Market

April 12, 2000

The new bill, the "Farmers and Ranchers Fair Competition Act of 2000" would, for the first time ever, update competition laws to take into account the unique circumstances of family farmers trying to win fair prices for their products. Leahy believes that current antitrust law works well for situations with a few producers -- such as factories -- supplying manufactured products to millions of consumers. But when millions of producers with very similar products want to sell their products to a

handful of giant agribusiness buyers, antitrust laws become meaningless.

Meat Inspection:  A Rancid Rule Change

http://www.commondreams.org/views/071800-104.htm

Editorial Tuesday July 18, 2000         © 2000 St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The most recent, and revolting, development was a report last week that meat from diseased animal carcasses would, under the new rules, be classified as safe. Meat from animals with cancer, open sores and diseases caused by intestinal parasites pose no health threat to humans, according to the new guidelines.

Clinton Administration Reduces Standards For Wholesome Meats

                                http://www.commondreams.org/headlines/071700-01.htm

                               

by Lance Gay

The federal agency overseeing food inspection is imposing new rules that reclassify animal carcasses with cancers, tumors and open sores as safe for human consumption.

Federal meat inspectors and consumer groups are protesting the move to classify tumors and open sores as aesthetic problems, which permits the meat to get the government's purple seal of approval as a wholesome food product.

Officials seek pardon after Tyson official sent to prison

By DAVID A. LIEB Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Arkansas' top elected officials are pleading for                    President Clinton to pardon a longtime friend and supporter sentenced to                    a year in prison for trying to illegally influence Clinton's former agriculture secretary.

  Tyson Foods executive Archie Schaffer III was sentenced Monday by a

  federal judge who believes Schaffer is innocent and has twice tried to                    acquit him, only to be reversed by an appeals panel.  Soon afterward, both Republicans and Democrats in Clinton's home state called for a pardon.

Schaffer, the main spokesman for the Arkansas-based poultry producer,                  was convicted under a 1907 law of trying to influence agricultural policy                    by arranging for then-Secretary Mike Espy to attend a Tyson birthday                    party in Arkansas in 1993.

The sentencing arose from independent counsel Donald Smaltz's                    investigation of President Bill Clinton's first agriculture secretary, Mike                    Espy. Jurors acquitted Espy of any wrongdoing in December 1998.                      Schaffer was convicted of giving Espy $2,500 worth of air travel so Espy                    could go to a 1993 Tyson party. Tyson sought to affect federal meat                    inspection laws.

            There is more to this theme under “Finance and corporations”.

World Trade is of major interest to developing countries, but some things do keep their names because they are made certain ways, this has at least allowed their to be some kind of standard while world wide trade unfolds.  I personally hope that some standards stay in place.  Why?  Have you ever felt Egyptian cotton?  The problem for (expressly) for developing countries is that they will saturate the market with one item that they can get a high price for and then someone else is able to make the same item (usually with preservatives – in the case of some foods) and saturate the market to the point that the developing country may not have a market anymore.

Currently globalization is occurring under one version of rules put forth by a global commerce agency called the World Trade Organization (WTO). This version of the rules is not "free trade." In fact the famous philosophers of free trade -- like Adam Smith and David Ricard -- must be spinning in their graves to see to what global commerce terms              their term "free trade" has been applied. For instance, the WTO has many restrictions on trade - such as providing a monopoly TRADE RESTRICTION on production and sale of medicine for 30 YEARS!!! to the pharmaceutical corporation that has a patent on a drug.  And, some of what is called a "trade restriction" by WTO and is targeted for elimination is actually our domestic food safety and environmental laws.

First bananas and beef, now GM crops: big business holds sway

Tuesday August 17, 1999

Last week, the US threatened a new trade war against Europe over GM crops, prompting fears about the influence wielded by giant corporations over world politics.  

The defence of national and local interests should be a democratic right. But nations' ability to reflect cultural, economic and environmental uniqueness is increasingly under attack by the World Trade Organisation, a secretive body with enormous power that effectively upholds a bill of rights for transnational corporations.

Ralph Nader: June 19, 1996

http://www.nader.org/opinions/oe6.19.96.html              

South Africans should be aware that a key provision of the nation's new constitution risks entrenching a new form of power abuse in the country -- autocratic rule by big corporations.

South Africa's new Constitution establishes that "juristic persons are entitled to the rights in the Bill of Rights to the extent required by the nature of the rights and of the juristic persons." This provision affords fundamental constitutional protections -- freedom of expression, political rights and guarantees of privacy -- not just to people, including those within corporations, but to the artificial entity of the corporation itself.

The American experience of providing corporations with similar rights that people have should ring alarm bells for South Africans concerned about preserving their newly won freedoms. While the U.S. constitution does not explicitly afford corporations the rights guaranteed in our Bill of Rights, court decisions have extended almost all those rights to corporate entities, with disturbing results.

The American experience makes clear that the constitutional language covering "juristic persons" creates direct conflicts with several of the South African Constitutional Principles of 1993, including the assurance that real persons will have political rights, associational rights and rights to life, security of person, the environment and information.

Introduction

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has one over-arching goal—removing barriers to trade. Despite having no environmental or public

health expertise or mandate, the WTO has reached out to establish rules and issue decisions declaring environmental and health measures to be

unfair trade barriers. More and more, the WTO is emerging as the entity with the greatest power to determine whether we can maintain effective

standards that promote food safety and protect public health and the environment.

In ferreting out what it considers unjustifiable standards, the WTO does not develop solutions to health and environmental problems. Nor does

it defer to governments or international institutions that are developing or endorsing strategies for reducing the proliferation of harmful

chemicals.

Nonetheless, the WTO second guesses the solutions governments have adopted for regulating toxins and declares them impermissible if, in the

view of three trade bureaucrats operating in secret, they are not sufficiently justified or they interfere too much with international trade. And

when the WTO passes judgment, the stakes are high. If the country that loses in the WTO does not change the offending law, the WTO

authorizes imposition of trade sanctions until the law is changed. This has proven to be a potent device for weakening or eliminating the underlying law.

The dangerous consequences of factory farming are being felt all across the country

BY ANDREW NIKIFORUK

Long after the dead have been buried in Walkerton, Ont., rural Canadians  who rely on groundwater will continue to feel and smell the impact of a  largely unreported revolution: the growth of factory farms. This new industry,  or what governments call "intensive livestock operations," has unsettled  farm communities from New Brunswick to Alberta. Unlike the family  enterprises of old, which proudly cared for 20 pigs or 60 cattle, these new  facilities operate on an entirely different and largely unregulated scale.

In addition, the world's key pork producers, Taiwan and Holland,

  recently pushed production into the danger zone, causing severe water

  pollution and animal disease outbreaks. But their environmental disasters  have had an effect here: hog barns managed by Europeans or funded by  Asian investors are popping up all over the country.

This animal had two testicles, two separate ovaries, and the complete ducts of each sex; cervix, vagina and vulva were absent. Mature spermatozoa were found in the lumen of seminiferous tubules in the testicles, and numerous involuted corpora lutea were recognized in the ovaries. This represents the first case of true hermaphroditism in a cetacean, and is the fourth hermaphrodite mammal with two testicles and two separate ovaries.

The cement plant is being established in the Abagatanen Cove where 35 of the clams were placed in 1998 by the Agno fishermen with the help of the Concerned Divers of the Philippines for the purpose of expanding clam production and management. Six of the original 35 died after their meat were forcibly extracted.

Goldsun Corporation was able to acquire an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) from Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Antonio Cerilles. After the certificate was issued DENR's environmental management bureau ordered the removal of the clams.

Each of the remaining 29 Tridacna gigas clams measures 1.5 meters (nearly five feet) in length and weigh over 250 kilograms (550 pounds). If protected, they can multiply so quickly there will be thousands in a few years, say their defenders.

Bush Property Seized--Trading with the Enemy

In October 1942, ten months after entering World War II, America was preparing its first assault against Nazi military forces.  Prescott Bush was managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman. His 18-year-old son George, the future U.S. President, had just begun training to become a naval pilot. On Oct. 20, 1942, the U.S. government ordered the seizure of Nazi German banking operations in New York City which were being conducted by Prescott Bush.

Under the Trading with the Enemy Act, the government took over the Union Banking Corporation, in which Bush was a director. The U.S. Alien Property Custodian seized Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares, all of which were owned by Prescott Bush, E. Roland `` Bunny '' Harriman, three Nazi executives, and two other associates of Bush.@s1

"The Justice Department of the Clinton administration - and under Vice President Gore - has filed over 20 percent fewer lawsuits in the area of environmental crime prosecution than [were filed in] the Reagan/Bush years," Nader said.

According to Nader, Gore has no right to cast himself as the environmental candidate in the presidential race.

"Basically, he has betrayed most of the promises he outlined in his book, "Earth in the Balance," in 1992," Nader said.

Specifically, Nader said that Gore has given the automobile industry a "free ride" by not proposing stringent fuel efficiency standards.

Gore has also been very weak in calling for stricter regulations on the use of pesticides and herbicides, and he was a staunch supporter of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) even though environmental groups spoke out against it, Nader noted.

Nor has Gore pursued his dream of transforming the United States into a solar based economy, Nader said.

WASHINGTON, DC, September 7, 2000 (ENS) - The 24 billion pounds of developmental and neurological toxins released into the environment of the United States each year are linked to millions of cases of developmental disabilities in children, charges a new report released today.

The report ranks toxic emissions state by state. Data reported by industries shows that Louisiana and Texas emit the most developmental and neurological toxins to air and water. Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Georgia, Virginia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida are also major emitters.

AUSTIN, Texas, September 13, 2000 (ENS) - A Texas judge has rejected a motion to dismiss Republican presidential nominee Governor George W. Bush from a civil rights lawsuit brought by environmental groups and individual protesters.

The suit was filed against the Texas governor by citizens who were arrested and jailed last spring for protesting Bush's environmental policies on the public sidewalk in front of the Texas Governor's Mansion.

This book follows the Bush family connections from 1914 to the present. From the time of George's grandfather, Samuel P. Bush, the Bush family has attempted to stay involved in politics. The book seems to show that since the family could not rate by having royal blood lines (that rate)or by having a high degree of education, that they would try to control by a philosophy of "The one with the most money makes the rules." They believe in "racial cleansing" and have cultivated people like Adolph Hitler.
Also I understand that Bush and Forbes are both alumni of Yale's sorority "Skull and Bones". So, could they have the same agenda?

                    The World Jewish Congress on Monday said it plans to push a consumer boycott

                   against 10 big US units of Aegon as a tactic to compel the giant Dutch insurer to join a

                   Holocaust restitution panel. The Jewish advocacy group estimated the U.S operations

                   of Aegon - the world's seventh-biggest insurer when measured in assets - had a total

                   of USD 191 bn of insurance in force.  http://www.xs4all.nl/~hebels/newsperc/aavnws.htm

                   Holocaust survivors were blocked from collecting insurance policies. The Dutch

                   insurer was selected as the first of at least eight firms that have been asked to join the

                   International Commission on Holocaust-era Claims because the Dutch insurer in July

                   bought California-based Transamerica.  http://www.xs4all.nl/~hebels/newsperc/aavnws.htm

                   were purely hypothetical. We don't have any need to renegotiate as long as the share

                   held on May 4, 2000. Tabaksblat, who retired as chief executive of food to detergents

                   security benefits when the government plans to open the sector up to competition in

                   2002. ABN Amro and Aegon want a commitment from the government that all

Canola is a name that recently appeared in the marketplace and is apparently derived from Canadian-oil.  Canola oil is actually produced from the rape seed plant.  Rape (Brassica napus), a member of the mustard family, is listed in the Encyclopedia Britannica as a poisonous

plant with toxic effects which include pulmonary emphysema, respiratory distress, anemia, constipation, irritability and blindness in cattle.            

According to John Thomas, author of Young Again: How to Reverse the Aging Process, The name canola disguised the introduction of rape oil to America.

Canola and the myelin sheath

Some speculate on the actual or potential effects of ELF and RF/MW radiation such as microwaves, wireless cell phones and computers. There seems to be studies that show these things to be detrimental to the neurological system causing accelerated aging (enhanced cell death and cancer), moods, depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence. I do not have an opinion on microwaves but these studies seem to show something could be happening to people that have enough money, need, and / or the knowledge to use cell phones.

It would seem that these people could also be knowledgeable enough to be health conscious, if they are health conscious and use Canola Oil which is a known to cause neurological problems - it strips the myelin sheath off of the (neuron's) axon. Brain cells are known as axons, and stripping the myelin sheath off of them causes them to short circuit as well as the potential of other problems. Other items that can cause problems or cancer are MSG, Bovine Growth Hormone, food colorings and sugar. Top

A fungus from the genus Aspergillus is the probable agent of epizootic

infections that have caused mass mortality of sea fan corals (Gorgonia ventalina) over the past 15 years1,2. Here we show that four strains of the fungus involved in these infections are members of the species Aspergillus sydowii, a common saprobe (an organism that lives on decaying matter) that is found in both terrestrial and marine environments. Isolates of A. sydowii taken from diseased sea fans caused new infections of sea fans in inoculation experiments, whereas isolates taken from elsewhere did not.

Aspergillus fumigatus causes pneumonia and brain abscesses in people with damaged immune systems following organ transplantation, burns, treatment for cancers and when patients are taking steroid drugs. It also

causes a severe allergy in asthmatic and cystic fibrosis patients. It is the commonest mould infection worldwide, affecting children and adults alike. In the 12 years up to 1993, there was a 14-fold increase in cases

in Europe. Once in the lungs, Aspergillus infection is difficult to diagnose and if untreated is always fatal.

From the Toronto Star is this bit of news that could explain the rapid rise in asthma in children.

Stachybotrys atra is a fungus that can kill babies, frail seniors and those with a severely weakened immune system. And this mold was found in some family homes in Wallaceburg during an extensive CMHC study of housing in that southwestern Ontario town.

Stachybotrys chartarum (atra): A New Emerging Fungal Threat and Methods of Dealing

with Contamination

http://envirocenter.com/IAS/TStac.htm

INTRODUCTION

Stachybotrys chartarum (atra) is a saprophytic greenish-black fungus found worldwide that colonizes particularly well in

high-cellulose material, such as straw, hay, paper and cellulose-containing building material. Stachybotrys chartarum grows and

sporulates in the temperature range of 2-40°C. The minimum water activity for germination is reported to range from 0.85 to

0.95, and for growth and sporulation from 0.91 to 0.96, depending on temperature and medium. Stachybotrys chartarum (atra)

is capable of producing several toxins including macrocyclic trichothecenes (satratoxins H, G, F, roridin E, verrucarin J, and

Trichoverrols A and B). However, many researchers still know little about the temperature and moisture conditions under

which these toxins are produced. It has been postulated that moist high-cellulose and low-nitrogen materials at a temperature

range of 0-40°C can provide sufficient condition for production of

  Stachybotryotoxins.

It will be at least two more months before staff at the mould-infested Newmarket courthouse can return to work inside a newly renovated and decontaminated building, says a Canadian Union of Public Employees official.

Val Erwin, who works in the court support office and is a health and safety officer for CUPE, said renovations to the building, closed by the province six weeks ago to clean up toxic mould, appear to be on schedule.

Councillor lays blame on Queen's Park

By Leslie Ferenc                   Toronto Star York Region Bureau Chief

Queen's Park must review its building code to deal with toxic mould in public buildings and help reduce health risks, a Vaughan councillor says.

Bernie DiVona recently persuaded city council to approve his recommendation, saying he was concerned that a growing number of schools in York Region and other public buildings such as the Newmarket courthouse have been closed because of the discovery of potentially dangerous fungus.

A TEAM OF scientists from Murdoch University are working on                improving control of a devastating plant pathogen which affects              about two and a half thousand species in Australia.

It is so small that it is

invisible to the naked eye. Yet this microscopic fungus poses such a serious a threat that it has been identified by the Federal Government as one of Australia's five national threatening processes.

Phytophthora cinnamomi, better known as the pathogen that causes the dieback disease in plants, is the fungus in question.

Thrush is caused by a yeast fungus, usually Candida albicans. There are ten forms of Candida that can affect humans. Fungi are deceptively simple, single-cell microbes. They are opportunistic, taking every available opportunity to colonize, and tenacious in their adaptability.

-- What I am investigating is the fact that antibiotics, in killing the beneficial bacteria protecting us from fungus leave “some” of us open to Candida, to me it makes sense that antibacterial soaps leave our houses open to fungal problems too.  --

Red tide spreading along Texas Gulf Coast

http://europe.cnn.com/2000/NATURE/09/25/texas.redtide.ap/index.html

September 25, 2000

Web posted at: 1:36 PM EDT (1736 GMT)

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) -- A bloom of toxic red tide algae is spreading along the Texas Gulf Coast, shutting down some oyster fishing and killing millions of fish whose rotting remains are fouling beaches.

State environmental officials say it's the largest concentration of red tide since 1986, when more than 22 million fish died in four months.

-

High concentrations of the algae called red tide produce a toxin that kills fish by affecting the central nervous system.

For humans eating contaminated fish or shellfish, the toxin can cause numbness, dizziness, nausea, fever and muscle paralysis. The most serious cases can result in respiratory arrest and death. In addition, people who swim in affected bodies of water can suffer breathing and eye irritation.

Aphid-trapping potato plants: a scientific project of Dr R W Gibson

Solanum berthaultii, an insect-resistant wild potato from Bolivia, has abundant sticky-tipped hairs on the foliage to which small insects and mites get stuck. In contrast, the foliage of cultivated potatoes does not

obstruct movement of potential pests. Stereoscan pictures show the Solanum berthaultii hairs and a trapped aphid in detail. Shows results of preliminary plant breeding trials where quite good tuber yield is

combined with sticky-tipped hairs on the foliage to which aphid pests adhere and die.

Sound and Fury  --  US Navy Threatens Whales to Safeguard Foreign Interventions  --

International Marine Mammal Project  --  by Chris Clarke

From:   Earth Island Journal – Summer 2000  --  Vol. 15, No.2

The project, called the Surveillance Towed Array Sonar System Low Frequency Active acoustic sonar system (SURTASS LFA), is designed to take advantage of the special acoustic properties of high-decibel, low frequency sound in seawater to detect what the Navy claims are increasingly quiet foreign submarines. 

In Exposure Guidelines for Navy Divers Exposed to Low-Frequency Active Sonar, a 1996 report by F. Michael Pestorius of the University of Texas at Austin and Capt. M.D. Curley of the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory in Groton, Connecticut, the authors describe a diver who was exposed to an underwater low-frequency sound of 160 dB. After twelve minutes, the diver experienced "dizziness, somnolence, irritability to concentrate and residual tingling in arms. He received medical attention on the spot and recovered, only to suffer a relapse an hour after the event and another while driving home from and chronic depression.

(this has cause beaching of marine mammals with an added potential of hurting salmon, other fish and birds.)

HARRP: Scientific Research or Environmental Crisis

As we look up into our sky we see nothing but clouds against a background of blue. We are given few clues as to the existence of much less how our atmosphere is structured. Haze on the horizon lets us see that something is there while the wind blowing across our face let's us feel the air. Donnella Meadows in "What is Biodiversity and why Should we Care About it?" has shown that "Most of us have grasped the idea that theres a hole in the sky over the South Pole…". As we grasped the idea of the hole in the ozone layer we will have to grasp the idea that the upper portion of our atmosphere is electrically charged. This area of our atmosphere called the ionosphere is the result of the interaction

between our sun and this planet we call Earth.
