As the saying goes, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!" But not this time...

Our room is described on the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino website as: The 550 square foot Deluxe Room is the perfect blend of comfort and style. We like to call it simple chic-and with artfully designed furnishings and plush textiles, you'll love to call it home during your stay. Perhaps, they really meant shabby-chic? Judging from our room, the hotel is old and long overdue for more than a face-lift.

A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater's Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto.

lackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State "security services," that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it. Many military and former CIA officers work for Blackwater or related companies created to divert attention from their bad reputation and make more profit selling their nefarious services-ranging from information and intelligence to infiltration, political lobbying and paramilitary training - for other governments, banks and multinational corporations. According to Scahill, business with multinationals, like Monsanto, Chevron, and financial giants such as Barclays and Deutsche Bank, are channeled through two companies owned by Erik Prince, owner of Blackwater: Total Intelligence Solutions and Terrorism Research Center. These officers and directors share Blackwater.

A former NYPD Detective testified last week that he regularly saw police plant drugs on innocent people as a way to meet arrest quotas.

Ex-Detective Stephen Anderson, who worked in the Queens and Brooklyn South narcotics divisions, was called to testify in the trial of Brooklyn South narcotics Detective Jason Arbeeny, who has been charged with falsifying public documents and business records. Mister Anderson's testimony was intended to reveal that, as the Daily News puts it, cop corruption wasn't limited to a single squad. In fact, it's pretty widespread! Anderson was busted for helping plant cocaine, a practice known as "flaking," on four men in a Queens bar in 2008. He testified yesterday that he did it to help out fellow officer Henry Tavarez, whose "buy-and-bust" arrests had been low.

A significant part of who we are is defined by the microflora of our digestive systems. If it's changed, even in the smallest way, by genetically modified foods, then we are changed. It's happening now. It's not science fiction.

We have strong evidence from a single study-published eight years ago-that the very nature of what we are is being tampered with by GM foods. Direct, horizontal, transfer of genes from one bacterial organism to another is well documented. We know that it happens in the human gut. Our relationship with gut bacteria is symbiotic. Changes in those bacteria can have long-ranging effects, including on the mind.
