By : Oxford Analytica - Wednesday February 7, 2007

Oxford Analytica 02.07.07, 6:00 AM ET Authorities in the United Kingdom on Feb. 5 completed a cull of turkeys on a commercial poultry farm, following confirmation that H5N1 avian influenza had entered the flock. Recent research on the "rescued" 1918 strain of human influenza has revealed how it and H5N1 kill by irreparably damaging the lungs, and what parts of the virus structure are required to make it highly transmissible. The threat remains of a human pandemic arising from avian (...)

After 35 years of hard work, the US organic community has built a multi-billion dollar alternative to industrial agriculture. Now large corporations, aided and abetted by the USDA and members of Congress, are moving to lower organic standards and seize control.

The Cannabis Man - The last word.

According to the Cannabis Man this is it. We have promised all along that this is leading somewhere and we reckon that we’re just about ready to show you where. So, if you will indulge us for a few more lines then we can get to the nitty gritty of this issue and - hopefully - move on. By now you probably think you know a bit about this man (after all, if I mention his 13 years of work again I’ll probably hear you scream from here!) but he wants it known that he is distinctly (...)

SEEDS OF DEATH VS. SEEDS OF LIFE Vandana Shiva

, MARCH 2006 (IPS) - In this analysis, Shiva writes that these seeds kill biodiversity, farmers, and people’s freedom — for example, Monsanto’s Bt cotton, which has already pushed thousands of Indian farmers into debt, despair, and death. Bt cotton is based on what has been dubbed ’’Terminator Technology’’, which makes genetically engineered plants produce sterile seeds. High costs of cultivation and low returns from genetically modified seeds have (...)

BBC and Channel 4 censorship of the Cannabis Man!
By : Bud Hayes - Thursday April 6, 2006
So where were we before Channel 4 and the BBC decided to rain on our parade? Well, we were having a little look at how it might actually be a good idea to try and take drugs out of the hands of dealers and protect citizens from crime and adulterated substances. Obviously this represents a concept that might be mistaken for joined up thinking so it’s unlikely that there will be a queue of politicians lining up to join us. However, before we get back to the straight forward sensible (...)

Cannabis is not about Drugs
By : Bud Hayes - Wednesday April 5, 2006
Today is the day, as promised when we will take the time out to have a little look at the benefits that cannabis could bring to a society willing to embrace its possibilities. But first, and perhaps most importantly, it may be necessary to address one or two of the issues raised by previous posts under this banner. Many, many are supportive but others raise issues and debating points that we will not duck. We are not sure at which point the Cannabis Man’s views have ever expressed (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy?

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
