NEWS ~ Genetically-Modified-Organisms (GMO’s) + Monsanto

Editor's Note: This is an area where Wikipedia falls short and gives little attention to the health or environmental affects of the industry practices.

genetically modified organism (GMO), also known as a transgenic organism, is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism', defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").

The Organic Consumers Association, and the Union of Concerned Scientists and Greenpeace stated that risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities. Some health groups say there are unanswered questions regarding the potential long-term impact on human health from food derived from GMOs, and propose mandatory labeling or a moratorium on such products. Concerns include contamination of the non-genetically modified food supply, effects of GMOs on the environment and nature the rigor of the regulatory process, and consolidation of control of the food supply in companies that make and sell GMOs.

Bayer Stock Crashes After Monsanto Cancer Verdict Upheld By Judge; Analyst Estimates $800 Billion In Future Liability | Healthy Holistic Living

They’ve been waiting for the news about how San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos would rule in a certain case. Would she rule against or in favor of Bayer’s appeal of the Monsanto Cancer Verdict? The case was finally resolved Tuesday morning. Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos upheld the jury’s decision, ruling that Roundup – a dangerous glyphosate-based weedkiller sold by Monsanto – lead to California man’s terminal cancer. She also ruled that Monsanto, in fact, intentionally hid the potential dangers of the weedkiller. (1) Bayer had to know that such news would result in serious damage to the company. As the news of Judge Ramon Bolanos’ ruling spread like wildfire, it, of course, affected the stock market as well. The ruling resulted in an immediate crash in Bayer’s stock value.

The Problem With “Pop Spirituality.” How To Recognize If You Are Falling Victim To This New Age Trap | Collective Evolution

These days it seems everywhere you look – people are donned in crystals, mandala tattoos, dreadlocks, bright colors, patterns and often a wisp of palo santo smoke found trailing behind them. One might look at these people and think, “wow people are really waking up and it’s incredible to see,” while there is a rising of global consciousness, many of these people merely look the part. It has become trendy to be spiritual, but really, it has nothing to do with how spiritual a person actually is, but whether or not they can dress the part, go to the workshops and say the right things. People seem to have hopped on the spiritual bandwagon and (my past self included) have inflated egos, thanks to months or years of spiritual bypassing. Many have yet to actually take responsibility for their actions and do the work that is required for true spiritual freedom.

Excellent documentary on connecting the inner and outer worlds of consciousness.

Power of the Sovereign Spirit | SuperConsciousness Magazine

For a growing number of people focusing on matters of consciousness, sacred knowledge and personal freedom, the reclamation of the word sovereign has become profoundly consequential. Within this paradigm, to recognize oneself as a sovereign being is to acknowledge one’s own total spiritual autonomy and unconditional entitlement to self‐determination. It is a primary avowal of oneself as a free and natural human being — not a serf, a subject, a corporate entity, or even a citizen. No persons or man‐made laws have any jurisdiction whatsoever over a sovereign being. This is all very alarming for any empire that secretly prefers its populace to feel toothless.
