World Breast Milk Donation Day
Today people celebrate breast milk and is donation for use by babies whose mothers cannot supply their needs.
It is not a day for adults to salivate over the growing trade in breastmilk, especially for body-building and nutrition. If anything, that represents not only a risk to public health (breastmilk sales to adults are usually not screened) but also unhelpful competition. Like taking (mik) candy from a baby...

Lawmakers looking to prevent a repeat of an HIV outbreak that has rocked a southern Indiana county sent Republican Gov. Mike Pence a measure Wednesday that would allow communities to implement needle-exchange programs if they can prove they're in the midst of an epidemic tied to intravenous drug use. #FoxNews

Butt out!
The trash from smoking is yet another reason to halt smoking altogether.
The growth, production and use of tobacco products has a HUGE impact on our health and world. We have the POWER to expose the tobacco industry and the damage they cause to the health of our world. To choose life over profits. For our health. For our world.

Okay, I get it: I am no Spring Chicken and things have changed. I can believe there have been 264 major eruptions (volcanoes, presumably), but 2 billion heartbeats? 20m of Redwood growth puts things into perspective. This BBC interactive infographic takes the cake. Try it yourself: http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20141016-your-life-on-earth

WHAT THE WORLD EATS (might make you sick)
A stark infographic from National Geographic. In my lifetime, meat consumption has soared as populations and incomes grew. The consumption of flesh by humans has expanded globally, and also per person, in the last 50 years. It rose from 6% to 9% of the global diet. The main loser seems to be grains, especially those other than rice, wheat and maize. Link: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/what-the-world-eats/

A powerful and thought-provoking photo essay about our impact on our environment.
"Water and air...have become global garbage cans"
How do you raise awareness about population explosion? One group thought that the simplest way would be to show people

General New Zealand information

1. New Zealand stretches 1600 kms from north to south. Wellington is   the political capital of NZ.
2. Summer and winter temperatures vary by about 10ºC  over most of the country, making New Zealand. an ideal holiday destination all year round. 
3. It is one of the safest countries in the world. No shots are required to visit New Zealand.
4. English is the common and everyday language. Maori, New Zealand’s other official language, is less widely used. 
5. New Zealander's do not expect tips for normal service. It is ok to tip   in restaurants or taxis for excellent service.
6. To make calls in New Zealand, you can either buy a Telecom phone card to use in a public card phone or you can buy an international phone card from newsagents/backpackers, which is cheaper for         international calls.

Does this create legal space for non-human animal rights?
North America's Nonhuman Rights Project is celebrating after a New York Supreme Court Justice held that apes detained at a University for research are covered by a writ of habeas corpus—a recourse in law to report unlawful detention or imprisonment.
Said Natalie Prosin, executive director: "[This ruling] strengthens our argument that these nonhuman animals are not property."
For the first time in US history, a judge has decreed that a pair of chimpanzees held at a university research facility are covered by the same laws that govern the detention of humans, effectively...
