Genetically Modified Food - Documentary

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5207412505897358694

It’s Monday again, and it’s time for a documentary.AA I haven’t watched this one, but as a caveat, sometimes I worry that people have the wrong conception of science.AA Though it makes sense to worry about the healthfulness of what you eat, I do find that some people tend to go overboard without a true understanding of the issues at hand.AA To say that humans have not been "genetically modifying" their food in a certain sense, since agriculture and husbandry, would display a certain level of naivetA©.AA After all, that’s the reason that all our crops haven’t blighted and all our animals haven’t died, on one hand, in regards to selective breeding.AA However, with all that said, I’m not trying to eat scientifically altered food without knowing whether or not it’s safe for me and my chil’lens.AA Either way, somebody let me know if this documentary is worth its salt, or I’ll watch it later tonight.

Who got that Vocab?!

stupefacient

[stoo-puh-fey-shuhnt, styoo-]
-adjective
1. stupefying; producing stupor.
-noun
2. a drug or agent that produces stupor.

…and… as always, in a sentence:

Yo, son, I spent all day up on yo’ ninja website, as it were, drowning in a stupefacient pool, making me a worser person.A It was all, like, death by mediocrity.

Somehow, Prince Harry (above) escaped our wrath, although we should really get at him, royally.

Skype announced on Thursday the forthcoming release of Skype Lite for Google Android and other Java-enabled phones. Skype Lite marks the communication company’s first native VoIP client for Java.

Skype is submitting the app to Google’s Android Market on Thursday morning, though it could take Google a few days to offer it for download.

In addition, Skype Lite will also be available on Thursday to about 100 models of Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, LG, and Samsung phones. The app has been available in beta form for a growing number of handsets on Skype.com, and isn’t expected to change in this initial release.

Bullish on Bowling — Yes, Bowling

bowlingstadiummnp.png

The economic crisis that pushed the National Football League and National Basketball Association to announce staff cuts, forced Honda out of Formula One racing and cost Tiger Woods his Buick sponsorship has reached a sport rarely in the news — bowling.

In the midst of what has been a renaissance, bowling recently experienced a rare off-month. There was no press coverage because there was no official accounting, just conversation "that numbers were down in October," reported by John Berglund, executive director of the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America, upon returning early last month from a national meeting of bowling-center owners in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
