How GMO Foods Will Be Eradicated - Video




From the Dr Mercola health news library.  Well worth your time to watch.  Everything we have seen about GMO foods is down and outright not in anyone's best interest.  The US and Canada are the only two areas left in the world not banning GMO foods.  Wonder why?  GMO science and technology are all created in these two areas of the world.  Also interesting.  A few years ago during a crisis in India, the US offered food supplies as part of financial aid to India.  India said that despite their dire needs, no thanks.  Wow.

Ken Cuccinelli New TV Ad Tamed Down

If there is one thing that Ken Cuccinelli is not good at, it's being in front of the cameras.  He's not at all natural and spends too much time worrying about what everyone is going to think.  This new ad at least hides that fact.  You also have to love seeing Terry McAuliffe drinking the cool aid over and over again.  Terry is one for tripping the light fantastic from what is seen of him.

At least this was not a really nasty smear ad like some of the others have been.  Mr Cuccinelli seems to be listening to people who are tired of the nasty ads.  This is about as bad as Virginian's will tolerate and still call it fair game.  Best advice for Mr Cuccinelli is to get very comfortable in front of the cameras very fast.  You have almost no time left and this is a game breaker.

It's interesting to note, Ken put this up yesterday.  Terry put up 2 yesterday.  Ken has over 4,000 hits on his new ad on YouTube.  Terry has less than 300 hits combined total on his 2 videos.  What does that say?

McAuliffe Ad Shoots McAuliffe In Face

Here is a new McAuliffe Ad trying to smear Ken Cuccinelli.  Problem is it just backfired in McAuliffe's face.  The report we just put out below this one shows that climate change is indeed junk science and that Ken Cuccinelli was right.  These UVA guys must be frauds only in it for the money?  How much did McAuliffe pay these actors pretending to be UVA scientists?

Virginia does not need some tripped out phony for a governor.  Send him a message to go somewhere else.  Terry McAuliffe for Communist president somewhere in South America.  Heck, it would be worth it to pay you to leave.

New study says threat of man-made global warming greatly exaggerated

Mean surface temperature change for 1999–2008 ...

By Doug McKelway
Published September 19, 2013
FoxNews.com

A peer-reviewed climate change study released Wednesday by the
Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change finds the threat
of man-made global warming to be not only greatly exaggerated but so
small as to be “embedded within the background variability of the
natural climate system” and not dangerous.

Armed with the new findings, Republicans on the House Energy and
Commerce Committee grilled administration environmental policy
officials about the economic consequences of its aggressive regulatory
crackdown on the fossil fuel industry.

The 1,000 page study was the work of 47 scientists and scholars
examining many of the same journals and studies that the United
Nations International Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC) examined,
producing entirely different conclusions.

 "This volume provides the scientific balance that is missing from the
overly alarmist reports from the IPCC, which are highly selective in
their review of climate science," the authors write.

The study was done under the auspices of the Heartland Institute,
which claims it "has no formal attachment to or sponsorship from any
government or governmental agency."

The Heartland Institute’s president, Joseph Bast, said of the study,
"The big issue in the global warming debate is how large is the human
impact on climate. And this report shows that it is very small, that
natural variability, the variability that's caused by natural cycles
of the sun and other factors, way outweigh anything the human impact
could have."

The report comes in advance of the expected release later this month
of a new U.N. report on climate change. Leaked drafts of that report
show surface temperature increases have been statistically
insignificant for the last 15 years, and that Antarctic sea ice is
increasing, not decreasing.

In addition, new satellite measurements of Arctic sea ice show it has
increased this year.

At the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing Wednesday,
Republicans particularly wanted to know what President Obama planned
to do to address those fossil fuel workers who've lost their jobs as a
result of administration policy.

 In a major address at Georgetown University last June, Obama promised
there would be a special plan for those workers.

"So I would ask either one of you what are the special plans in the
president's action plan to help address these people who are losing
their jobs, " Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) asked EPA Administrator Gina
McCarthy and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.

"I'm not familiar with the details of those plans, but I am familiar
from reading the climate action plan that the president sees this as
both a challenge and an economic opportunity," McCarthy replied.

That exchange led to a testy retort by Ralph Hall (R-Tex.). "You got a
better answer than I received from Mrs. McCarthy about a year ago
before the science committee," Hall told McCarthy. "I may have asked
you a question you didn't like and your answer was, ‘I'm not in the
business of creating jobs.’”

Committee Democrats, along with McCarthy and Moniz, set out to counter
Republican skepticism about the impact of climate change.

"The evidence is overwhelming and the science is clear," said Moniz.
"The threat from climate change is real and urgent. The basic science
behind climate change is simple. Carbon dioxide makes the earth
warmer, and we are admitting more and more of it into the atmosphere."

Moniz added that any stabilization of surface temperatures in recent
years was an indication of a "hiatus" of global warming, not an end to
global warming.

Told of Moniz's remarks, astrophysicist  Willy Soon, one of the
NIPCC's leading scientists, reacted incredulously. "So tell us when is
it going to rise again?” he asked. “This is a question that not only
me, as a scientist, is asking , but all the lay persons should begin
asking."

The Heartland Institute's Bast told Fox News that there are no climate
models used by proponents of global warming that predict a lull in
warming.

 "Point to the model that predicted this hiatus," he said. "No
increase in violent weather , no increase in hurricanes. All of this
and we're still supposed to believe the models... models they picked
because they supported their political interests, not because they
represented good science."

Eight Teachers in the Running for 2014 Virginia Teacher of the Year

Commonwealth’s Top Teacher to be Named Next Month

RICHMOND – Eight educators learned of their selection today as 2014 Virginia Regional Teachers of the Year during surprise classroom visits and announcements made by their division superintendents.

            “These teachers, from schools in every corner of the Commonwealth, are committed to excellence and the success of their students,” Governor Bob McDonnell said.  “I congratulate them for their selection as regional teachers of the year and thank them for what they do every day to prepare young Virginians for the future.”

            “The eight being recognized today exemplify what is best in Virginia’s public school teachers,” said Superintendent of Public Instruction Patricia I. Wright. “Each encourages, motivates and challenges his or her students to meet higher expectations in the classroom in order to achieve academic success and to be prepared for the future.”

            The 2014 Regional Teachers of the Year announced are as follows:

·         Tracey Zaval, an eighth-grade civics and economics teacher at Midlothian Middle in Chesterfield County (Region 1)
·         Carrie E. Gantt, an 11th- and 12th-grade English teacher and Teachers forTomorrow instructor at Princess Anne High in Virginia Beach (Region 2)
·         Tara J. Hefner, a second-grade teacher at Courtland Elementary in Spotsylvania County (Region 3)
·         Melissa A. Porfirio, a first-grade teacher at Crestwood Elementary in Fairfax County (Region 4)
·         Jennifer B. Lovett, a reading specialist at Linkhorne Elementary in Lynchburg (Region 5)
·         Byard W. “Trey” Harris III, a music teacher and band director at Bassett High in Henry County (Region 6)
·         Tina H. Cook, a computer technology teacher at Chilhowie Middle in Smyth County (Region 7)
·         Shawnta L. Posey-James, an Earth science teacher at Greensville County High in Greensville County (Region 8)

            The teachers were selected from among candidates nominated by school divisions in each of the state’s eight superintendents’ regions. The candidates submitted portfolios highlighting their accomplishments, educational philosophies and community activities. A panel, including classroom teachers, representatives of professional and educational associations, the business community and 2013 Virginia Teacher of the Year Kathryn B. Galford of Chesapeake reviewed the portfolios and selected the eight regional teachers of the year.

            The panel will interview each of the eight teachers next month to select the 2014 Virginia Teacher of the Year. The decision will be announced during an awards ceremony to be held October 11 in Richmond.

            The 2014 Virginia Teacher of the Year will be the commonwealth’s nominee in the National Teacher of the Year Program. The recognition is given by the Council of Chief State School Officers, in partnership with the University of Phoenix and People to People Ambassador Programs, and sponsored by the ING Foundation and Target. Two previous Virginia teachers — B. Philip Bigler, the 1998 Virginia Teacher of the Year, and Mary V. Bicouvaris, the 1989 Virginia Teacher of the Year — went on to be named as a National Teacher of the Year.

Lemon Pudding From Scratch - Recipe of the Day

English: Lemon velvet pudding in a Bulgarian p...
English: Lemon velvet pudding in a Bulgarian pottery bowl (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
One big lemon.
Sugar, six ounces.
Sweet almonds with 3 bitter ones, six ounces.
Six eggs.
Cook the lemon in water, for which two hours will be enough. Remove dry and rub through a sieve. Before rubbing, however, taste it, because if it has a bitter taste it must be kept in cold water until it has lost that unpleasant taste. Add the[Pg 143] sugar, the almonds skinned and ground very fine and the six yolks of the eggs. Beat the whites of the eggs and add them to the mixture that will then be put in a mold and baked like all other puddings.

This is how pudding used to be made.  Not with some easy mix.
