This is an interesting question and one that took some digging to figure out. I'd never thought much about the difference even though I figured there was one.

Buying organic has become the mantra of the eco-conscious community and for good reason. Organic produce is basically grown naturally but it's labeled 'organic' not 'natural.' Basically the issue is oversight. The United States Agricultural Department (USDA) must certify a product that considers itself organic.

Not without some intelligent human assistance, say experts.

A few years ago, most Canadians would have laughed at the idea of terrorism on Canadian soil. But recent events have caused governments around the world to step up security efforts in public places, such as airports and border crossings. In Canada, the federal government has allocated $79 million for new equipment and supporting activities at Canadian airports.

Did you know that as of May 18, 2013, there have been 202 cases of mumps in the US? Where is the media frenzy? The hysteria? The call from the Health Department and outrage over vaccination rates?

here is none. Because the vaccine is failing, the usual "push" is noticeably absent. Here are some direct quotes from University Health Services and/or Health Departments on the mumps outbreaks: (1) In Massachusetts, the students who got the mumps had been vaccinated. (2) In Virginia, the students who got the mumps had been vaccinated. (3) In Maryland, the students who got the mumps had been vaccinated. Do you see a trend here?

The CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) of August 24, 2012 was simply titled "Vaccination Coverage Among Children in Kindergarten - United States, 2011 - 12 School Year".

It is not known why the authors, who were all from the CDC, chose not to mention vaccine exemptions in the title when they knew that they would be discussing them in such great detail up to and including their percentage increase or decease in kindergartens nationwide. The main report consisted of six paragraphs and was followed by a detailed Editorial Note which also consisted of six paragraphs. The Editor's name was not revealed.

39 months after the Fukushima meltdown...what is TEPCO doing to remedy the situation?

Often in the wake of a big massacre such as what happened recently in Aurora, people are scared, sad and looking for answers.

Unfortunately, the media ALWAYS distorts the problem; placing blame on the need for stricter gun laws, or gun bans altogether. The truth is the gun is hardly the problem as everyone knows; guns don't kill people, people kill people. When incidents like this occur, shouldn't people be focusing on what caused this senseless act to happen in the first place, rather than the weapons that were used to carry out these horrific acts? But don't expect the media to let you know that one of the biggest causes is the products of the pharmaceutical companies that just happen to bankroll the corporate gatekeepers.

WEST GLACIER - Glacier National Park has cited one of its employees for an incident last weekend that resulted in a park ranger shooting and killing a mountain lion.

Glacier spokeswoman Denise Germann was out of the office Friday and unavailable for comment. Bill Hayden, filling in for Germann, said the park would not release the woman's name because of concerns for her safety. Germann issued a news release that said an investigation determined the woman failed to maintain control of her pet, as required by park regulations.

Yesterday many US newspapers carried front-page stories on the severity of influenza so far this season. The New York Times story began with "It is not your imagination - more people you know are sick this winter, even people who have had flu shots."

Is this really a bad flu season? Before we answer that question, I would like to complain about what the Times wrote: 'more people you know are sick this winter, even people who have had flu shots". A similar sentiment appeared in a recent Forbes column "Influenza-like-illness is sweeping the country with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention reporting that most areas of the country experiencing high rates. I should know, my family is in the midst of it despite having been vaccinated." Remember that having a respiratory illness does not mean that you have influenza - it could be caused by a number of other viruses which of course would not be blocked by influenza vaccine. Furthermore, the influenza vaccine is not 100% effective - it's about 60-70% effective in individuals younger than 65 years.

It was an Ice Age squirrel's treasure chamber, a burrow containing fruit and seeds that had been stuck in the Siberian permafrost for over 30,000 years.

From the fruit tissues, a team of Russian scientists managed to resurrect an entire plant in a pioneering experiment that paves the way for the revival of other species. The Silene stenophylla is the oldest plant ever to be regenerated, the researchers said, and it is fertile, producing white flowers and viable seeds.
