France and Russia just banned GMOs, and the US media is silent. Why haven’t we heard about this in the main stream news?
Could it be because the Senate is about to vote on a bill that would ban GMO labeling? Both
Russia have banned GMOs in their countries, joining
As reported a few days ago by Nick Meyers at
: When two of the most modernized and
countries in the world decide to ban a type of food crop that has made its way into roughly 70-80% or more of the U.S. food supply, you’d think it would be considered newsworthy.

Stories of Hope for Autistic Children
My husband, Julian, and I recently watched the
2010 movie, Temple Grandin
, and we were deeply moved by her story and the remarkable progress she has made in her life. From a diagnosis of autism and brain damage at the age of two, Grandin went on to complete a doctorate and, using her own experience as an autistic child, to devise the revolutionary "Hug" machine now used to quiet livestock and autistic children. According to
her bio in Wikipedia
, in 2010 she was listed in the Time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world in the "Heroes" category.

If 50 is the new 30 then why do I have to exercise so much?
I miss the ability to eat at will: sweets and nacho chips, macaroni and cheese, and sour cream on just about anything that wasn't moving. I miss the metabolism that allowed me to burn off the extra calories with almost no effort. But most of all, I miss my natural athleticism: my body's ability to do anything from walking to gardening, from the balance beam to Step aerobics, from hiking to swimming to bowling, all for hours on end and with nary a creak nor a protest. If 50 is the new 30, then why has no one informed my body?

Similar to Earth Day, which galvanized the global environmental movement, Global Oneness Day has become a catalyst for spiritual activism and the emerging global Oneness movement. It represents a profound new paradigm in human culture. In the late 1960′s the first photographs of the Earth seen from space powerfully impacted humanity. We realized that all life on our beautiful blue planet was deeply connected.

Albany while using a public telephone. He was about a foot away when a rogue bolt of lightning struck. He recalled seeing his own body on the ground surrounded by a bluish-white light.

Growing a Victory Garden with Dr. Mercola
Anyone Can Grow Food!
The late Jerry Brunetti discussed
Gardens during World War I and II in his last book, The Farm as Ecosystem. The gardens were advertised as a way for patriots to make a difference on the home-front. At that time, the majority of the produce grown in the
US was grown right in people's backyards, and I firmly believe we need to revert to
growing our own food
