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?"

The world is bound up in a paper money/credit explosion that can only end badly. What it really means is impoverishment for millions of people, most of whom are totally oblivious to the roaring undercurrent.

There is little wisdom in announcing an economic crash after the fact. Yet some people get upset that I continue with ongoing warnings of a coming financial "pandemic." Seeing the probabilities before they happen is the only prediction that is worthwhile. Afterwards is merely reporting the obvious.

Panama fined a US biotechnology company's local facility that "repeatedly violated" the nation's permitting and regulatory laws as it worked to develop the world's first genetically-modified salmon. The 2012 infractions were first made public on Tuesday.

AquaBounty Technologies, a company licensed by the US government to foster what could be the world's first genetically-modified (GM) meat, is carrying out GM-salmon research in Panama. Neither Panama nor the US has given clearance to sell GM salmon, but, if regulators approve its application, AquaBounty may become the first to sell GM meat in the US. "AquaBounty is really out front on this - the current case will set an important precedent," Dana Perls, a food and technology campaigner at Friends of the Earth, told Inter Press Service (IPS) news agency. "From what we know, there are about 35 other genetically modified species in the development pipelines in other companies. So depending on what happens in this case, we'll likely either see a flow of other permits or this will demonstrate that there isn't room on the market for GM meat or seafood."

One of the richest Democrats in Congress is forcing his wife and children to accept government assistance to feed themselves.

Six days after Rep. Alan Grayson was named the 17th richest member of Congress by Roll Call, his wife received an EBT card to help feed herself and their four minor children. They are also enrolled in their schools' free lunch program - and we all know they're not getting very many calories from that.

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.

As impossible as this should be in America, the land of the free and the home of religious liberty, it is happening as we speak in Idaho, one of the most conservative states in the union.

There, in Coeur D'Alene, ordained ministers Donald Knapp and his wife Evelyn are going to spend 180 days in jail and be fined $1000 a day for politely declining to perform a sodomy-based marriage ceremony.

Why has Nestlé, who owns a baby-formula producing company called Gerber, removed GMOs (genetically modified organisms) from baby foods and formulas in South Africa and not in the United States?

Perhaps because South African parents are more vocal than Americans. Or it might also be because corporations conducting business in the U.S. are protected by government agencies who don't seem to give a hoot about public health - not even of our most fragile citizens. Maybe it's time we speak out for the sake of children's health.

Residents of Mississippi with backyard bird feeders could run afoul of new state regulations that prohibit the "supplementary feeding" of wild animals.

The new rules appear to have been intended to limit the use of outdoor salt licks and other types of feeders designed for deer, but would apply to all animals, including birds.

Federal court decides 10-day waiting period laws violate Second Amendment rights. California's 10-day waiting period for gun purchases was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge this morning in a significant victory for Second Amendment civil rights.

The laws were challenged by California gun owners Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs, as well as two gun rights groups, The Calguns Foundation and Second Amendment Foundation. In the decision released this morning, Federal Eastern District of California Senior Judge Anthony W. Ishii, appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton, found that "the 10-day waiting periods of Penal Code [sections 26815(a) and 27540(a)] violate the Second Amendment" as applied to members of certain classifications, like Silvester and Combs, and "burdens the Second Amendment rights of the Plaintiffs."
