Monsanto is in the news again for all the wrong reasons. Most recently, a federal judge in San Francisco unsealed Monsanto�s internal emails and emails to and from federal regulators indicating that Monsanto ghostwrote research on its controversial Roundup weed killer compounds, then passed it off as research from independent academics. These communications also show that Monsanto worked with senior officials at the EPA to quash a review of glyphosphate, Roundup�s main toxic ingredient, by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Among the email gems was those written by a Monsanto executive, giving his colleagues the green light to ghostwrite glyphosate research and then hire academics to put their names on the papers as Monsanto had done in the past, saying "[w]e would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak.� Another one from a Monsanto executive, to an EPA official who was heading the cancer risk evaluation of Roundup, stated that "If I can kill this, I should get a medal." The Roundup evaluation never happened.
The second greatest invention right after the internet (honorable mention to ALL social media platforms) is online streaming. If you are like me, online streaming has become a way of life. Being a millennial, we tend to be called the �microwave generation�. We want everything immediately. Waiting an entire week to watch the next episode of a show is too long. Often, I will deliberately not watch a show air on live TV and wait until the show is available online so I can watch the entire season with no interruption. I can fast forward through the theme song and I can pause to take snack breaks whenever I please. Sometimes I find myself watching a show for hours and hours on end. This groundbreaking invention has completely changed my life for the better. It is hard to imagine a time when we would have to program our VCRs to record something we wanted to watch. If you forgot to hit record, you had to ask a friend to give you the play by play of the show and watch the show vicariously through them. If they happened to not catch the show you were just out of luck. Thank goodness those dark days are over! Whoever created this new way of life is a truly brilliant individual.
A few months ago, my husband found out that an old neighbor of his was diagnosed with cancer. He went to her home that day, cut her grass and told her he would continue do so for the remainder of the season. He also donated food for a benefit the community had to help her with living costs.
This past week, I was able to get my first up-close look at how a trial works from start to finish. Prior to this past week, the closest I have ever been to a trial is through a textbook when looking at famous cases such as Plessy v. Ferguson or Miranda v. Arizona. When reading a textbook, I can�t help but relate it to the closest depiction of what a trial looks like and how it feels to actually be in a court of law. For me, the first examples that came to mind were television shows and movies such as Law and Order and Legally Blonde. Needless to say, the first morning I was feeling quite nervous about what to expect.
Why is it that when we plan vacation we forget to plan for the time that it takes to get ready to leave and the time we need to recover from the trip home?
�A traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States, consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.�
For years it has been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Is this really the case? Is the saying a good marketing strategy to help breakfast brands sell their products? Or is it a way to convince youngsters to eat before heading off to school?
About four years ago, my 17-year-old daughter came home and told me she had volunteered me to participate in the mock car crash they were having at school. At the time, I figured I�d be applying makeup, making sure everyone was placed in the appropriate positions, helping with lines, etc. This was no surprise to me because I had helped out behind the scenes for previous productions performed by the students. However, this one was very different.
The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (�WARN�) Act, a federal law, became effective on February 4, 1989. The Act protects workers by requiring employers to provide notice 60 days in advance of covered plant closings and covered mass layoffs. This notice is given to affected workers or their representatives, such as a labor union.
