Tuna surprise tonight? Sorry honey, the ocean ran out!

Blue Fin, Yellow Fin, Skipjack – way overfished for sandwiches and your cat! Take a look at how tuna starts maybe that will help convince you too – it bleeds just like you, it resists dying for your lunch, or dinner.

Tears for the Tuna

Until recently the Pacific was the home to the world’s last abundant tuna fisheries, but there are now serious problems facing Pacific tuna. Bigeye and yellowfin tuna are already in serious trouble, and even skipjack, once thought of as virtually limitless, is now in decline and being caught at a rate that is not sustainable in the long term.

Rock hound collectors meet up on Amplify! Grin

Fun when your social tool enables you to meet new friends. In this case strange folks, like me who dig in the earth to find semi-precious stones, fossils, as well as gem stones. Horse Canyon Agate is beautiful and named, as are many stones, for its location and unique qualities. I collected lots of it before the area was developed for homes. Still have stones that resemble those shown here. Horse Canyon got its name from pre-historic horse-like animal identified from fossils found near the site as well. They died out and Spanish brought horses back to North America.

Self collected Agate from the world famous Horse Canyon Agate beds of Tehachapi, CA. Closed twice in the 60’s.
Horse Canyon Moss Agate 753  :  A bit more of the classic Moss Agate in this traditional cab with a darker Agate base.
Horse Canyon Moss Agate 732  :  Another of the Moss against the Milky background.  Very showy material with no undercutting on the moss.

Voices of Peace in Afghanistan: Dear President Obama

It will not be pretty but we should be trying to get everyone to the table, as we should in Israel/Palestine too.

A glance at the conflict in Afghanistan

US policy questioned by academics and researchers

The following letter was sent today to the President of the United States by a group of academics, journalists and NGO workers:
we ask you to sanction and support a direct dialogue and negotiation with the Afghan Taliban leadership residing in Pakistan.
discussions about Afghanistan’s political future must include all parties and not just be a quick-fix deal with members of the insurgency.
It is time to implement an alternative strategy that would allow the United States to exit Afghanistan while safeguarding its legitimate security interests.

How much antibiotic drugs are in your burger, meatball, whatever?

Way too much and it is making us more likely to let loose some superbugs whose job will be to super-balance the system – that means big trouble for burger eaters – aka: humans – us.

News break: FDA estimates US livestock get 29 million pounds of antibiotics per year

That’s a lot.

The reason why antibiotic use on farms is a concern, of course, is because such use stimulates the emergence of drug-resistant organisms that move off the farm in animals, in groundwater, in dust, on the wind and in the systems and on the clothes of those who work there, and makes new resistance factors available to be swapped among bacteria.

Second Look Behind the Headlines

Culture War, Class War

Culture War is Class War disguised. The Wealthy Elite--the "Filthy Rich"--foment Culture War in society to distract and cover their real economic motives. Culture War, Class War explores the resulting cultural divide--how it was instigated and kept alive for fifty years in America by certain elite powers and how and why they choose to benefit while tearing families in two and keeping America paralyzed.
