The biggest players in the food industryfrom pesticide pushers to fertilizer makers to food processors and manufacturersspend billions of dollars every year not selling food, but selling the idea that we need their products to feed the world. But, do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world? Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we needtoday and in the future? Our first Food MythBusters film takes on these questions in under seven minutes. So next time you hear them, you can too.

Governments today in both Europe and the United States have succeeded in casting government spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. In contrast, they have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts--austerity--to solve the financial crisis. We are told that we have all lived beyond our means and now need to tighten our belts. This view conveniently forgets where all that debt came from. Not from an orgy of government spending, but as the direct result of bailing out, recapitalizing, and adding liquidity to the broken banking system. Through these actions private debt was rechristened as government debt while those responsible for generating it walked away scot free, placing the blame on the state, and the burden on the taxpayer.

Four years ago, a bright young presidential candidate named Barack Obama campaigned on a theme of hope and change, and made history. Today, he finds himself in another bitter, divisive presidential race but without the buzzwords. Instead, an embattled president struggles with a dysfunctionally-divided Congress, the controversial healthcare bill, a decade-long war, and a stagnant economy.
A secret recording was leaked to the press this Thursday revealing a conversation between a San Antonio Texas GOP councilwoman and her staff — in which the discussion deteriorated into a chorus of harsh anti-gay rhetoric.
James Stevens, who is an aide to San Antonio District 9 Council Woman Elisa Chan, leaked the audio to the San Antonio Express-News, which he secretly recorded during a May 21 meeting in Chan’s office to discuss an approaching non-discrimination ordinance.
However, the nearly 16-minute audio reveals a discussion where staffers compare homosexuality to incest and pedophila, with Chan stating her opinion that gays are “disgusting to even think about.” In addition to her revulsion towards the LGBT community, Chan can be heard saying that she believes being gay is a choice and that gay people should not adopt children.

27-year-old mother of two from Queensland, Stephanie Banister, is hoping to represent the One Nation Party in next month’s election in Australia. She has some pretty monumental odds to overcome. She could be disqualified if convicted of charges stemming from an anti-Muslim contamination scare at a shopping center. Banister is due to face a charge of “contaminating or interfering with goods” over allegations she stuck a sticker which read “Beware! Halal food funds terrorism” on Nestle products at her local Woolworths.
