Inside the cover of the most recent issue of Newsweek, adorned by a rainbow haloed President Obama as the "first gay president," is an article about New Mexico governor Susana Martinez.

The article is largely positive piece about Governor Martinez's compelling life story, her successes in the first year and a half of her term as governor, and what she could contribute to the national GOP as a whole and presumptive nominee Mitt Romney specifically.

A bizarre spill of Skittles highway on a rural Wisconsin highway has placed the candy's manufacturer in the uncomfortable position of explaining why its products are finding their way into cattle feed.

The unexpected mishap ended up uncovering that farmers have been feeding candy to their cows for years as a way to cut corners and save money, at the cost to the quality of the beef as well as both cow and human health. Police, in talking to the cattle ranchers, soon learned that Skittles and other sweets are being commonly used in the area in order to "fatten up" cows as they serve as an inexpensive source of carbohydrates. A former farmer in the area told a local CNN affiliate that candy makers and bakeries often sell their rejected or defective candy products to be used as cattle feed, meaning that the problem is larger than just unscrupulous ranchers.

No matter how tech savvy you are, there are certain things every one of us has to deal with when using a computer-and we don't always deal with them in the most efficient ways.

Here are 10 things that everyone can (and should) learn to keep their computer fast, safe, and easy to use. Here at Lifehacker, we take a lot of the simpler stuff for granted: how to avoid viruses, use keyboard shortcuts, or even just keep your data backed up. Even if you've mastered all of these tricks (and there's a good chance you haven't), you may want to send this along to some of your less computer-savvy friends. After all, the more they know how to do, the less they'll call you for help.

Despite overwhelming public support and support from a clear majority of Vermont's Agriculture Committee, Vermont legislators are dragging their feet on a proposed GMO labeling bill. Why?

Because Monsanto has threatened to sue the state if the bill passes. The popular legislative bill requiring mandatory labels on genetically engineered food (H-722) is languishing in the Vermont House Agriculture Committee, with only four weeks left until the legislature adjourns for the year. Despite thousands of emails and calls from constituents who overwhelmingly support mandatory labeling, despite the fact that a majority (6 to 5) of Agriculture Committee members support passage of the measure, Vermont legislators are holding up the labeling bill and refusing to take a vote.

A growing demand for organic food, coupled with healthy eating trends and a preference for premium products, is driving the growth of the natural food preservatives sector, according to a report.

North America was identified as the region currently dominating the food preservative industry, with a 36.5% value share in the food preservatives market in 2013. The report expected this lead to continue in the coming years. While Asia Pacific was identified as following a similar trend, Choudhury believed growth might be restrained by more stringent regulations. "Various food preservatives are currently banned in different part of the world which is acting as a barrier for the food preservatives market. The impact of this restraint is high at present and it is expected to remain so in the next few years," he said. "Developing countries that do not have strong government regulations are expected to witness higher demand for preservatives in the future. It is expected that FDA policies could be revised in the next decade."

The companies that make those candy bars leftover from Halloween don't want Californians to be spooked by scary tales of "Frankenfoods." The Hershey Co., - makers of Butterfinger, Kit Kat and Sand Snickers bars - gave a combined $367,000 last month.

They are just a few of the major food and biotechnology companies that have poured more than $44 million into the fight against Prop. 37. Proponents of the measure, who have raised $7.3 million from donors - including a controversial alternative health website and organic food companies - argue that consumers have a right to know what's in their food and point out that some countries already require such labels.

SCIENTISTS have for the first time found evidence that polar bears are drowning because climate change is melting the Arctic ice shelf. The researchers were startled to find bears having to swim up to 60 miles across open sea to find food.

They are being forced into the long voyages because the ice floes from which they feed are melting, becoming smaller and drifting farther apart. Although polar bears are strong swimmers, they are adapted for swimming close to the shore. Their sea journeys leave them vulnerable to exhaustion, hypothermia or being swamped by waves. According to the new research, four bear carcases were found floating in one month in a single patch of sea off the north coast of Alaska, where average summer temperatures have increased by 2-3C degrees since 1950s.

Dan Perkins, aka Tom Tomorrow, penned the cartoon in 1994 for Spin magazine.

At the time, the cartoon might have seemed a little hysterical. Remember, this was pre-warrantless-wiretapping, pre-Guantanamo, pre-Snowden, and pre-Obama-assassinating-American-citizens-with-drones, sans trial. Rather, the context for the cartoon was a new NSA gadget called the "Clipper chip" that would have made it easier for government officials to listen in on phone conversations, provided they had the legal authority to do so. (The technology was never widely adopted, and the NSA soon abandoned it.) Now? Not so hysterical. But hey, at least the third panel isn't strictly accurate, yet.

Poisons used on illegal marijuana farms appear to be sickening and killing the fisher, a rare forest carnivore that makes its home in some of the most remote areas of California.

Fishers are currently a candidate species for listing under the United States Endangered Species Act. The researchers, led by veterinary scientists from the University of California, Davis, say they detected commercial rodenticide in dead fishers in Humboldt County near Redwood National Park and in the southern Sierra Nevada in and around Yosemite National Park.
