'The Farmer Who Took on Monsanto' - Oct. 21, 2011
Percy Schmeiser presented "The Farmer Who Took on Monsanto" at Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment's Speaker Series, on Friday, Oct. 21, 2011 in Fraser Hall 4 on Western Washington University's campus. The lecture was co-sponsored by the WWU Center for Canadian-American Studies, Western's Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies' World Issues Forum, and the Community Food Co-op. Farmers have been saving seeds since the dawn of agriculture, but that practice and crop diversity are threatened by consolidation of seed ownership by a handful of large chemical and pharmaceutical corporations. Agricultural resiliency and the integrity of neighboring ecosystems are further threatened by promotion of transgenic (GMO) crops by those same companies. Corporate control often is exacerbated by regulatory capture of the agencies charged with protecting farmers, the public, and the environment. Few farmers have succeeded in resisting this transformation of the agricultural system, but Schmeiser is one of those rare farmers, and his story is compelling. Schmeiser is an elder statesman in the struggle for farmers' rights, food integrity, and biodiversity in a transgenic era. He has been challenging Monsanto's efforts to promote genetically engineered crops since 1998. When Monsanto's 'Round-up Ready' GMO canola seeds were found in his fields, Monsanto sued the Schmeisers for patent infringement and sought $400,000 in damages. Monsanto offered to withdraw the suit if the Schmeisers signed a contract to buy the company's seeds in the future and to pay its associated technology-use fee. The Schmeisers contested the case to the Canadian Supreme Court, which ruled that Monsanto did own the "Round-up Ready" gene, but that the Schmeisers owed no damages to Monsanto. When Monsanto's seeds again found their way into Percy's fields, he sued the company for cleanup costs. The case was settled when Monsanto agreed to pay to clean the Schmeisers' fields and dropped its demand that Percy not speak publicly about the matter. From his experience, Percy has developed 12 principles for food and agriculture in an age of biotechnology. Schmeiser's story is one of the first and most prominent cases of a corporate claim to own patents on life. It foreshadows unfolding struggles over who controls intellectual property, cultural heritage, and the foods we eat. Schmeiser is a farmer from Bruno, Saskatchewan, Canada, where he is a leader of the region's farm community and an advocate for farmers' rights worldwide. He was a member of the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly from 1967-1971, mayor of Bruno from 1963-1982, a town councillor from 2003-2006, and serves on several provincial and international commissions. He has won many honors, including the Social Justice Award (2010), the Right Livelihood Award (2007), the Council of Canadians' Activist of the Year Award (2004), and the Mahatma Gandhi Award (2000). The speaker series is held by Huxley College of the Environment to bring together the environmentally minded community and other interested members of the WWU and Bellingham communities. Speakers address topics of contemporary environmental concern in the region and the world. For more information, please contact the main Huxley office, (360) 650-3520.

Satan  has  retired  in  Bangladesh -  Shaikh Nurul Islam Faruqi
Whatever the population, non-Wahabi Muslim leaders say approximately 80 percent of all U.S. mosques are under the control of Wahabi imams and subsidized by Saudi Arabia. In addition to funding mosque construction and subsidizing programs, the Saudis are said to be pouring millions into creating a system of schools teaching militant Wahabi doctrines. Given the 80-percent figure, and considering that mosques are operating in every U.S. state, Wahabis are becoming a formidable influence. For example, the State Department lists 327 mosques in California, 67 in Texas, 57 in Florida, and 140 in New York. An example of anti-American Muslim rhetoric was documented in terrorist expert Steven Emerson's 1994 PBS documentary, Jihad in America. If the Americans are placing their forces in the Persian Gulf, we should be creating another war front for the Americans in the Muslim world—and specifically where American interests are concentrated. —Mohammad Al-Asi, leader of the Washington Mosque and head of the Islamic Educational Center in Washington, D.C. What sets the Wahabi segment of Islam apart as a danger to America and the West? For starters, Wahabism has been described as an Islamist totalitarian system. Its strictures include suppressing women and invoking the death penalty for alcohol consumption, sexual transgressions, and conversion to another religion. Western influence and close interaction with non-Muslims are seen with a mixture of disdain; contempt; and at times, aggression that is believed to be sanctioned by the Qu'ran. Prime targets for Wahabi animosity are Israel and America. Practitioners of the Wahabi brand of Islam are committed to spreading the religion around the world by peaceful or coercive means. The Muslim Student Association, with solid Wahabi commitments, operates chapters on virtually every major campus in America. In league with militant left-wing organizations, it has been in the forefront of organizing and executing anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hate campaigns on campuses. A student publication at Rutgers University published a cartoon depicting a Jewish man suspended over a burning oven. The caption read, "Knock a Jew in the oven." At Wooster College in Ohio, a guest lecturer spoke about the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion as if they were true. At Northwestern University in Illinois, swastikas were painted throughout the campus nine times in a single year. The Wahabis' brand of religious militancy is not simply a matter of being out of step with American values and Judeo-Christian traditions of their adopted home; it is a potential menace to other Muslims who do not embrace the excesses of Wahabism. As has been demonstrated by the Muslim on Muslim war in Darfur, Sudan, Wahabis are not above attacking other Muslims whom they consider not Muslim enough for their taste.

Spokesperson of the American Dental Association on the East Coast Dr. Sally J Cram in answer to this elaborates upon the ways that have been proven effective in teaching Americans about the importance of regular dental care. Dr. Cram believes that while one of the most effective ways for raising awareness is through TV programing and dentists, themselves, also have a responsibility. In the US, she says, many dentists like her fulfill this responsibility by volunteering in the schools and community centers for teaching people about the dental problems that they might have.

Dr. Conrad Volz on the WVSA and Frack Water Treatment Facilities
by Scott Cannon Dr. Conrad Volz displayed a photograph of brine- and chemical-laden natural gas wastewater pouring into a western Pennsylvania stream from a treatment facility in Josephine. "This has to be stopped," he declared. "This is a public health emergency." Volz, director of the University of Pittsburgh Center for Healthy Environments and Communities, came to Misericordia University on Monday at the request of the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition to speak about the impact of Marcellus Shale drilling on public health. Recent revelations by The New York Times that improperly treated wastewater containing brine, radioactive material and other harmful substances is finding its way into the state's bodies of water, along with the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority's consideration of a treatment facility in Hanover Township and two potential natural gas metering stations near the Dallas schools made the presentation timely. Two main problems with natural gas drilling is the potential for explosions and blowouts at wells, compressor stations and pipelines, and the fact that the state often allows drilling wastewater to get into the environment after inadequate treatment, according to Volz. Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," involves sending millions of gallons of chemical-treated water to open cracks in the shale and release the gas. In addition to the chemicals, the water picks up salts, naturally occurring radioactive material, barium, magnesium and various other volatile organic compounds. These combine with nitrogen oxides to form ozone, which Volz said can irritate the lungs and worsen asthma and respiratory infections. Volatile organic compounds are also carcinogenic. One of them, strontium, replaces calcium in the body, weakening the bones, Volz said. Chemicals from drilling can be inhaled or ingested when they get into the air and water. The cement in well casings can be damaged by the salt, allowing methane gas and chemicals to migrate into groundwater. Compressor engine exhaust is a significant source of nitrous oxides and volatile organic compounds, as well as fine particles that can be inhaled deep in the lungs, Volz said. Since natural gas drilling is relatively new to the area, people are only starting to be exposed, and environment-related cancers take 15 to 30 years to develop, Volz said. He cited Louisiana, where the petroleum industry is well established - parts of the state are called "cancer alley" as a result of higher lung, liver and other cancers associated with the industry. "It all comes in one package, my friends. You take the money, you take the cancer, too," he said. Volz said natural gas drilling or related facilities should not be allowed near schools, hospitals or critical infrastructure. Billions of dollars have been spent to take toxic materials like asbestos out of schools - "and that wasn't the risk this is," he said. "Serious, serious, serious" health problems result from drilling wastewater, Volz said. He showed photographs from a study he had done at a brine processing facility in Josephine, where improperly treated water was allowed to pour into a nearby stream. He said people with private wells within 100 feet of the stream could be affected - and so could people in cities like Freeport, Oakmont and even Pittsburgh if the pollutants find their way into the sources of water systems. Volz repeatedly reminded people the situation is political, urging them to vote out lawmakers who don't do what the people want. Samantha Malone, communications specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Healthy Environments and Communities, demonstrated the blog she developed, fractracker.org. It combines data from different state and federal agencies, allowing people to map what is going on in their communities.

YMCA of Montclair: 2011 Community Gala Honorees
On December 3, 2011 the YMCA of Montclair celebrated the contributions of four individuals whose impact on the organization will forever be felt by its members, staff, and the Greater Montclair Community. These four are: Helen Geyer, Robert Constable, Thomas Boyton, and Carol Kearney. All will be honored for their years of dedication, commitment, and generosity of spirit to help further the Y's mission. The "1891 Community Gala," the Y's inaugural signature event held at the Highlawn Pavilion, West Orange, NJ paid tribute to these four individuals and also serve as a platform to help generate awareness of the Y's efforts and activities. Dollars raised will fund the financial assistance provided to those with demonstrated need toward membership, child care, summer camps, and general programming. Opportunities to support the cause were available through sponsorships, tribute journal ads, tickets to the event, and donation of auction items. The criteria for being considered an 1891 Community Gala Honoree has to do with the honorees' years of service to the YMCA of Montclair, their history of giving, and their specific volunteer talent that they lend to the organization. All of these conditions must be above standard in order to stack up against the caliber of the nominees. According to Jo Ann Short, President & CEO of the YMCA of Montclair, "our inaugural honorees are all incredibly worthy and have each contributed to the Y in very different ways, and all will leave their footprints upon us, our facility, and our community for generations to come." The honorees celebrated for the inaugural year 2011 are: Thomas E. Boyton served as Executive Director of the YMCA of Montclair from 1987 until his retirement as President/ CEO in June 2010. During his tenure he expanded the facility with a second pool, offices and observation balcony in 1991. Ten years later, he took on the much needed locker room renovations and created state of the art facilities complete with steam, sauna, showers and lockers at 25 Park Street facility. In 2006, he directed the sale of the Washington Street facility to allow the Montclair Board of Education to build the state of the art building where the Bullock School stands today, and built the Geyer Family facility in its stead, at 159 Glenridge Avenue, Montclair, completed in 2007. Helen Geyer has served for many years as a valuable volunteer to the YMCA of Montclair. Over the years she served on the Ladies Auxiliary and in addition to many other special events she assisted in transforming the gymnasium to look like that of the theme of that year's fundraiser. She assisted with inviting "the right people" to the table for each event and funded several projects over the years. More recently and more significantly, Mrs. Geyer generously funded the renovation of the 159 Glenridge Avenue property. In 2007, the branch of the YMCA intended to serve our youth population was officially named the Helen & Bill Geyer Family Center of the Montclair YMCA. We give many thanks to Helen for her philanthropic spirit. Robert S. Constable has served in a volunteer capacity as YMCA of Montclair Board Member since 1992 and acted in the role of Chairman from September 1996 to September 1998. During this time, he set the bar for fund development in leading the board to understanding their role as the fund development arm of the Y. Today he carries the title of chair emeritus and continues with his soft demeanor and strong leadership. He is respected for his business savvy and diplomatic style. His personal contributions in time, talent and treasure have assisted in creating the firm foundation for which this organization is so proud. Carol Kearney joined the YMCA of Montclair staff team in 1980. She joined as a part-timer conducting fitness classes. That position evolved into a full-time role as the Physical Director for many years and then she scaled it back while she raised her daughter, Amanda. Now as the Pied Piper for our morning crew and leader extraordinaire for our seniors, she is the YMCA of Montclair. Her personal touch is felt by anyone who comes in contact with her. Her personal and genuine concern for other people is like no other. She was at the very start of the annual 10K run 30 years ago and has been in charge of it ever since. She partners with so many to pull it off, but truly is the leader in this terrific community event. The size of her heart and the depth of her compassion are immeasurable.
