California farmers must restrict their use of a tear gas-like pesticide applied to strawberries and other crops under new rules designed to protect farmworkers and people who live, work and go to school near agricultural fields.

Chloropicrin is "an irritant with characteristics of a tear gas" that was manufactured as a chemical warfare agent during World War I, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Strawberry growers have applied chloropicrin for decades, but its use has increased in recent years as an alternative to methyl bromide, which is being phased out under an international treaty.

The Great Famine of Ireland, in which mass potato crop failures resulted in more than 1 million men, women, and children dying of starvation, is now recognized by some as one of the first historical examples of the dangers of monoculture.

In his book The Famine Plot, Irish historian Tim Pat Coogan brings to light how the British monarchy essentially drove the Irish people of that time to their grim fate by engineering the food shortage that would eventually capture more than one in eight Irish lives. Based on the definitions outlined by the United Nations as to what genocide actually is, the way the Irish were treated by the Royal Crown during the mid-19th century serves as a clear example of genocide through food.

Anne Marie Ambrose spearheaded a comprehensive overhaul of the city's child welfare system during her tenure as Department of Human Services (DHS) commissioner.

Under her direction, DHS developed and implemented Improving Outcomes for Children, a new, single-case management system, which is a model of service delivery for community-based, culturally-competent and family centered. She also served as a critical partner in the city's decade-long effort to co-locate the Philadelphia Police Department's Special Victims Unit staff, DHS staff, the Children's Alliance and members of the District Attorney's staff to ease the process of reporting incidents of child sexual abuse for victims.

More than 700 chefs - including Tom Colicchio, José Andrés, Art Smith and Sam Talbot - are urging members of Congress to support legislation to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods and to oppose efforts to block state GMO labeling laws.

"This is about transparency in the marketplace and preventing consumer deception," agreed Colin O'Neil, director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety. "Consumers can only make informed decisions when they are given the information to do so. We require labels on everything from juice from concentrate to foods that have been irradiated; why should genetic engineering be any different?"

American workers and motorists got some badly-needed relief this week when the price of oil plunged to its lowest level in years. The oil price has fallen by about 25 percent since its peak back in June of $105 a barrel.

There are many global reasons why gas prices are falling, but the major one isn't being widely reported. America has become in the last several years an energy-producing powerhouse. And sorry, Mr. President, I'm not talking about the niche "green energy" sources you are so weirdly fixated with.

A coalition of U.S. farm and environmental groups has filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn regulatory approval granted for an herbicide developed by Dow AgroSciences.


The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in California, argues that the Environmental Protection Agency did not adequately analyze the impact of one of the new herbicide's active ingredients, 2,4-D, before granting approval Oct. 15 to Dow's Enlist Duo herbicide.
 The groups are asking the court to set aside the EPA's approval.
 Widespread use of 2,4-D carries risks to human health, animals and the environment, the groups allege. They claim the EPA's approval violated the Endangered Species Act and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act.
 "They did not do an adequate job," said Andrew Kimbrell, an attorney with the Center for Food Safety, which is a plaintiff in the case. 
 "This was a rubber stamp. They acted illegally in approving this."

The "officials" in Tawas, Michigan had a man and woman caged for keeping chickens on their property.

They want to control our food. Keeping chickens should not get you arrested. This is hardly the first instance of something like this happening. This is the outcome of a legislative move to criminalize backyard farms and small, residential farming operations.

Thousands of Liberian health-care workers are set to begin an indefinite strike at midnight on Monday which could undermine the country's effort to stop the spread of the deadly Ebola virus and leave several hundred patients without care.

"The public is aware that health workers are dying because they are not protected. Nobody is supposed to die while protecting lives, we have been calling on the government to give us protective gear but they are not doing so," he said.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, California's coast faces a new threat. Oil companies are fracking the ocean floor just offshore - and state and federal officials seem unconcerned or out of the loop about the danger.

On dry land, fracking has been an environmental menace for years from Pennsylvania to Texas to North Dakota. But Californians only recently discovered that oil and gas companies are fracking our state as well, blasting huge volumes of water mixed with toxic chemicals into the earth to release fossil fuels. Now we've learned that oil companies are also fracking the ocean floor. This dangerous process is already happening in federal waters in the Santa Barbara Channel, where an infamous 1969 oil spill polluted our ocean and beaches with millions of gallons of oil, and federal officials recently approved a new fracking project.
