Genetically modified corn seeds are no longer protecting Brazilian farmers from voracious tropical bugs, increasing costs as producers turn to pesticides, a farm group said on Monday.

Producers want four major manufacturers of so-called BT corn seeds to reimburse them for the cost of spraying up to three coats of pesticides this year, said Ricardo Tomczyk, president of Aprosoja farm lobby in Mato Grosso state. "The caterpillars should die if they eat the corn, but since they didn't die this year producers had to spend on average 120 reais ($54) per hectare ... at a time that corn prices are terrible," he said.

We stand at the dawn of the 21st century with technology hurtling us into a space-age future while an estimated 5 million American children have been legally placed on mind-bending drugs. These drugs are not only addictive but are ti

The use of these drugs - on a dramatic rise amongst school children, particularly over the last two decades - is a primary factor in the creation of acts of random senseless violence among our youth. Indeed, while all manner of reasons have been offered for the recent rash of school shootings, the simple but frightening fact is that the rise of senseless violence in our schools is date coincident with, and directly tied to, the increased use of these prescribed mind altering, mood-changing drugs.

The world's first human-powered helicopter by a Canadian engineer has won the Sikorsky Prize after performing a minute-long flight at an altitude of 3.3 meters - fueled only by the pilot's pedaling of a modified bicycle.

The AHS Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition was established in 1980, in search for the first successful controlled flight of a human powered helicopter. The helicopter had to reach a height of three meters while hovering for at least one minute in a ten-square-meter area. The competition's $250,000 prize had never previously been awarded, with numerous creative engineers trying and failing to meet the criteria. "The AHS Sikorsky Prize challenged the technical community to harness teamwork, technical skills, and cutting edge technologies to meet requirements that were on the ragged edge of feasibility," Mike Hirschberg, AHS International Executive Director, said in a statement.

Mac susceptibility to malware is not as black-and-white as many people believe. Apple haters celebrated Miller's feat; Safari was the first browser to fall in last week's contest. (Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox also were breached, but Google's Chrome wa

Meanwhile, the Mac community mostly jeered, noting Miller had prepared his exploit in the weeks before the contest. Although true, it doesn't change the fact he discovered a valid hole in Safari's code. Mac users should be less critical and more concerned. I know the notion of Mac vulnerability is unpopular, but Miller makes convincing arguments. And unlike vendors of anti-virus software, Miller and the company he works for...have nothing to gain.

This paper compares divorce rate trends in the United States in states that encourage joint physical custody (shared parenting) with those in states that favor sole custody.

States with high levels of joint physical custody awards (over 30%) in 1989 and 1990 have shown significantly greater declines in divorce rates in following years through 1995. Divorce rates declined nearly four times faster in high joint custody states, compared with states where joint physical custody is rare.

What influences women when they are making child custody decisions that will bring them into future contact with a violent or controlling ex-husband?

Ask Internet safety advocates about the need to protect children from the Internet, and they will tell you the trick is to put the computer in the living room, where surfing can become a family activity.

Yet almost half of respondents to an AOL Canada survey say they would put an Internet-connected computer into the privacy of their children's bedroom. At the other extreme, almost 30 per cent of parents also said they don't intend to allow their children to go on-line at home at all.
