Plant Breeders Release First 'Open Source Seeds'

"A group of scientists and food activists is launching a campaign Thursday to change the rules that govern seeds. They're releasing 29 new varieties of crops under a new "open source pledge" that's intended to safeguard the ability of farmers, gardeners and plant breeders to share those seeds freely.

It's inspired by the example of open source software, which is freely available for anyone to use but cannot legally be converted into anyone's proprietary product."
Scientists and food activists are launching a campaign to promote seeds that can be freely shared, rather than protected through patents and licenses. They call it the Open Source Seed Initiative.

Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant and he got it. The pay was really good and so was the work condition. For those reasons, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.

His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work.

The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.

“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!”

Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.

“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.

“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?” the boss asked.

“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”
Reflection:

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don’t take time to sharpen the “axe”. In today’s world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy that ever.

Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay “sharp”? There’s nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But we should not get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like our personal life, taking time to get close to our Creator, giving more time for our family, taking time to read etc.

We all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow. If we don’t take the time to sharpen the “axe”, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness.

The correct response when asked "how can we be certain we will be going to heaven when we die?" should never begin with "because I..."

The correct response begins with "because HE..."

Meditations on Holy Week
I am especially grateful for all of the opportunities that are available to me because of Him. Because of Him I can be forgiven of past mistakes, have that burden taken off my shoulders, change my ways and resolve to do better. 

Starting today I resolve to spend quality time each day with my family and to put them first. Starting today I resolve to be kinder in my dealings with those around me, to think before I speak, to not be as argumentative, and to try to love people as He would. 

What opportunities do you have because of Him? What will you resolve to do starting today to make the world a better place?

I was in a vulnerable position when the AC on my Toyota truck went out in the middle of a heatwave. The first shop quoted me additional parts they said were necessary in order to warranty the defective part. After asking friends, I was referred to Corner 3 and I'm very happy that I was. Nima confirmed that only one part truly needed replacement and ended up saving me a lot of money. I will be going back in the future.
