The Politics of Search
Theories about sweetheart deals over tax only help Google avoid answering the real questions about when and why it edits its search engine

If only this were true, but it's certainly possible
Genius and hard-hitting NY Times mock-up. Immediately removed from the web but enjoy the lead story and this link to the full 'edition' https://web.archive.org/web/20160202195655/http://www.newyorktimes-ip.com/

Quality is everything. And if we combine buying quality with buying from independent makers/sellers, sellers who are NOT listed on the stock exchange, the world would change mighty fast.
 
How about this?
Tired of replacing stuff every few years? This website solves that problem.

Neat idea. Some of the items are very costly compared to their throwaway counterparts. However, some are very well price.

Green tea affects fertility

For the study, Jafari and colleagues investigated the effects of green tea toxicity on the development and reproduction in fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
Embryos and larvae were subjected to various doses of green tea polyphenols.
Larvae exposed to 10 milligrams of green tea were slower to develop, were born smaller and exhibited a dramatic decline in the number of emerged offspring.
Ten milligrams of green tea made the flies more susceptible to starvation and heat stress but protected them against dehydration.
Female offspring showed decreased reproductive output and a 17 percent reduction in lifespan while males were unaffected, the study found. Frequent green tea consumption may hamper fertility

Are you a green tea lover? Read this carefully as the cup packed with anti-oxidants and other health benefits may adversely affect your fertility and development in case of frequent use, warn researchers.

In experiments over fruit flies, the team from University of California-Irvine discovered that excessive consumption adversely affected development and reproduction in fruit fly populations.

According to them, one should avoid high dose of green tea or any natural product as nutraceuticals such as green tea, while growing in popularity, are largely unregulated.

"While green tea could have health benefits at low doses, our study and others have shown that at high doses, it may have adverse effects," said Mahtab Jafari, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences.

"Further work is needed to make any definite recommendations but we suggest that green tea should be consumed in moderation," she added.

For the study, Jafari and colleagues investigated the effects of green tea toxicity on the development and reproduction in fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.

Embryos and larvae were subjected to various doses of green tea polyphenols. Larvae exposed to 10 milligrams of green tea were slower to develop, were born smaller and exhibited a dramatic decline in the number of emerged offspring.

Ten milligrams of green tea made the flies more susceptible to starvation and heat stress but protected them against dehydration. Female offspring showed decreased reproductive output and a 17 percent reduction in lifespan while males were unaffected, the study found. Ten milligrams of green tea caused morphological abnormalities in reproductive organs such as testicular and ovarian atrophy.

Jafari noted that in other tests with mice and dogs, green tea compounds in large amounts dramatically reduced body weight and, in mice, negatively affected embryo development.

The price of a cuppa?
Not just the history of tea is littered with bodies. 
Three more workers at two tea gardens in Malbazar have died, taking the toll to 68 over the past 10 months.

Beeeautiful
Somehow listening to this seems like a good omen for Chinese New Year.

Not Ratified
The federal government has confirmed it intends to sign the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal at a meeting next week in New Zealand. But International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday signing the treaty doesn't necessarily mean Canada will ratify it.
