"...GMO segregation, in the form of labels or GMO-free restaurants, is misguided. GMO labels don’t clarify what’s in your food. They don’t address the underlying ingredients—pesticides, toxins, proteins—that supposedly make GMOs harmful. They stigmatize food that’s perfectly safe, and they deflect scrutiny from non-GMO products that have the same disparaged ingredients."

A long read, but a must-read.
Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms. Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon...

I added my name to the list of the many who agree that real justice demands no less than an independent investigation.

All of them happened after the Charleston shooting, but none are being called hate crimes.

Not that this will make the Islamophobes and xenophobes change their minds...
A count by a research center found that non-Muslim extremists have been far more lethal than Islamic militants on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001, running counter to public perception.

If the medium is the message, the message is we're people who unnecessarily constrain our thinking.

"In conversations around the world, extremist Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists, as well as some on the far right and far left of U.S. politics—have all featured similar arguments. The stories usually involve a nefarious plot by outsiders to destroy their culture or faith, or future. They say they have had to act in self-defense. As the victims of the plot, they have no choice but to respond."

"I'm in the walking around and laying on stuff business. It's insanely competitive." 
Humans Of New York, the wildly popular blog that features photos of random everyday New Yorkers along with some of their quotes, has one fatal flaw – no cats. Comedian Jim Tews has set out to solve this with his Felines Of New York (FONY) blog, where he collects photos of New York's cats and writes introspective and meaningful captions for them, much like those often found on HONY.

Another fine example of empathy and compassion at work. I only hope I can stop myself from dehumanizing people, no matter how offensive their views or monstrous their actions.
