Cloned meat, dairy make way to the table

Families and friends who share eggnog, lamb curry or beef stew this winter may not know whether the main ingredients came from cloned animals, after the governor vetoed a San Francisco lawmaker’s labeling bill.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is poised to end a voluntary moratorium on the sale of dairy and meat from cloned cattle, goats, pigs and sheep, after it ruled last year that the food is safe for humans. The agency published a health risk assessment in December that noted high death rates among cloned animals and host mothers, partly because of incidents of ‘large animal syndrome’ in cloned cattle and sheep.

A federal bill to require labels on food from cloned animals and their descendents has been stalled in Democratic-controlled congressional committees since February. A similar bill by state Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco, passed the Legislature last month, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recently refused to sign it.

To clone an animal, scientists move its genetic material into excavated donor embryos, which are planted in host mothers to grow as genetic doppelgängers of the prized beast. A Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology survey last year found that two-thirds of Americans are “uncomfortable” with the technology.

Migden said labels on cloned food would let consumers know and choose what they put on the dinner table, but Schwarzenegger told lawmakers in a veto statement that Migden’s proposed rules “could be unworkable, costly and unenforceable,” and might violate federal law.

About a dozen agricultural and retail groups opposed Migden’s bill. California Farm Bureau lobbyist Noelle Cremers said cloning lets livestock producers “more quickly respond to consumer demand” by replicating valued animals, and that it would be “next to impossible” to segregate food, for labeling purposes, from cloned animals and their descendents.

Labels for cloned food would mislead consumers, which would violate federal law, said Cremers, because there’s “absolutely no difference” between food from cloned and non-cloned animals.

But food-safety and animal-welfare groups criticized Schwarzenegger’s decision. “The animals are injected with large amounts of hormones — and that’s a food safety issue,” said Rebecca Spector, the San Francisco-based West Coast director of The Center for Food Safety.

The nonprofit noted in a report that the federal government’s risk assessment relied heavily on studies that weren’t reviewed by other scientists. “We feel very strongly,” Spector said, “that there hasn’t been adequate testing.”

UC Davis biotechnologist Alison Van Eenennaam said overgrown young are a side effect of in vitro fertilization, and that they’re usually delivered safely by Caesarean section. “Most of these companies have got a few vets on staff,” she said. “It’s not like it’s Joe Blow out in the field hoping for the best.”

How The Bible Became

By Rev. Ted Pike

Recently, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law S.B. 777, outlawing Biblical criticism of homosexuality in CA public schools (See, California 'Mom,' 'Dad' ban garners international scorn). California's Christians face the alternatives of withdrawing their children to private education or watching them progressively corrupted by an educational system that demonizes their religious bias against sodomy.

This ban on the Bible is not a recent capricious edict from Sacramento liberals or the Republican "Terminator" Governor Schwarzenegger. It's the result of massive social engineering throughout the past half century but begun in earnest in 1985 by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. ADL is architect of "anti-bias" educational programs worldwide. Here's how this Jewish activist group helped make it criminal to criticize sodomy in California--and intends to do so everywhere.

Re-Defining Hate

America was founded on tolerance--as a place where people of widely diverse races, religions, and creeds could follow their convictions free from persecution. But America's founders hardly believed that vice should be tolerated or that it's wrong to be prejudiced against it! Early American social ethics (as taught in homes, schools and churches) said the opposite: Families, social groups and even government should encourage "bias" against all forms of vice. These include robbery, graft, prostitution, etc. and that vice so unnatural that for thousands of years it was virtually unmentionable--sodomy.

Yet, in the early 1980s, Jewish-dominated media determined to create as much damage as possible from the sixties' sexual revolution (which they promoted). I vividly remember how, more than ever before, they encouraged not just the drug culture, abortion and fornication but especially "gay rights." In fact, sodomy is being pushed down the throats of Christian America until it will soon become criminal not to be a homosexual but a Christian! (See, http://truthtellers.org/alerts/judaismhomosexuality.html) Judaism and Homosexuality: A Marriage Made in Hell and Jews Confirm Big Media Is Jewish)

In league with the Jewish media, ADL's social re-engineering of America and the world has been largely accomplished through its massive "World of Difference" educational program. In 1985, ADL began an educational thrust that encompassed all levels of public education, government, corporations, and social organizations. ADL relentlessly taught millions that we are entitled to no bias against race, religion, or "sexual orientation." All bias, ADL teaches, is very bad. No one is entitled to claim that he, his religion, or sexual orientation is right and others wrong. "When we convince ourselves that our way is the "right way," we are more likely to strike out at those who are different. In fact, intolerance of differences is at the roots of most violence." (http://www.adl.org/guide/default.asp)

ADL teaches that, for practical purposes, bias and "hate" are the same. Biblical bias expressed against homosexuality constitutes "harassment" and "verbal violence," the precursor of hate-motivated violence (hate crimes).

First Step: Make Bias Socially Taboo

Wanting to eventually criminalize bias against homosexuality, ADL first had to make it a violation of social norms. Since 1985, "more than 375,000 elementary and secondary school teachers, responsible for nearly 12 million students," have participated in ADL's "World of Difference" program. These included anti-bias programs beginning as early as age 3-5. Lesson formats such as "I Belong to Many Groups" foster global--not religious or national--loyalties in young people.

ADL sensitivity training programs in corporate America taught business owners to defer to homosexuals as almost a protected species in regard to hiring or firing. After decades of conditioning, American business has been prepared for ADL's workplace bias crime laws on the federal and state level. (This includes ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, now before Congress.)

ADL also teaches law enforcement at all levels how to recognize and report bias crimes. It conditioned US Justice Department officials, FBI, and all police departments to believe that verbal "intimidation" of homosexuals is virtually a hate crime and that "gay bashing" may well be traceable to evangelical pulpits.

The Fruits of ADL's Labors

In the 1980s, ADL led countless young people away from Christians' "homophobic" bias against homosexuality. They are now the teachers, police officers, jurists, and administrators who guide America's public policy. As exists in Canada and now in California, this policy increasingly empowers legislative provision for stiff protection of homosexuals as beleaguered victims of Christian intolerance.

For 23 years, ADL has cultivated, watered and fertilized the moral and cultural soil of America toward acceptance of homosexuality. This contradicts moral standards that prevailed for at least the last 5,000 years.

So it was no surprise when the first openly lesbian member of California's state assembly, Sheila Koehl, submitted a bill banning criticism of homosexuality in the public school systems. Gov. Schwarzenegger then enshrined on the legislative level a program of moral transformation begun more than 20 years earlier by ADL.

Yet ADL remains unexposed, unidentified, and uncriticized by Christian evangelicals and their leaders. Why the silence? ADL is 100% Jewish. The majority of evangelicals believe that God will "curse" the nation or person who criticizes Jews. (Gen. 12:3) Their leaders, who are becoming more aware of ADL origins of hate laws and organized anti-Christianity, fear they will be cursed by a mass exodus of support if they criticize God's chosen people.

Yet, if the church remains silent concerning those who invented and foment "anti-bias" laws, there is little to ultimately restrain passage of a virtual epidemic of hate laws identical to S.B. 777. Like poisonous mushrooms sprouting in profusion after extended rain, such laws will crop up in state and federal capitals and dominate the moral and political landscape, not only in America but throughout the world.

Bronx resident creates Afrocentric puzzles to teach children about culture

Monday, October 29th 2007, 4:00 AM

Kevin Dunn is a puzzling guy.

The 52-year-old Bronx resident and father of five creates Afrocentric crossword and word-search puzzles to teach children young and old about African and African-American culture and history.

Marketed under the "Puzzles For Us ... the puzzles with a purpose" label, Dunn's puzzles have started appearing in New York City public school classrooms - a nice turn of events, since that's where the first one appeared more than 15 years ago.

He's also under contract to create puzzles for both the American Civil Liberties Union - on racial profiling - and the legendary Apollo Theater.

"I call these cultural entertainment," Dunn said. "The idea is to whet people's appetites so they want to know more." Though schoolchildren are the target audience, the scholarship behind each puzzle is more college-level. Dunn's puzzle clues are taken from history, culture and popular culture; solutions to one puzzle include a speech by Sioux Chief Sitting Bull, ancient Egyptian ethics and an award-winning recording by local radio personality Gary Byrd.

Dunn was born and raised in Brooklyn. His mother, Juanita Francis, was a seamstress, and his father, Silas, was a longshoreman with an interesting history of his own - he was once offered a spot on a Negro Baseball League team but had to turn it down because his mother didn't like the idea of her son playing baseball on Sunday.

Dunn is a data programmer and a former after-school counselor who also ran a computer club for students.

He created his first crossword puzzle in 1991 as a way to help his stepdaughter Ebony learn more about history. His other children are stepdaughter Latoya, and sons Jisun and Lordikim. Another son, Ikim, died in 2001.

"I was really trying to find something for the kid to do, besides watch television," Dunn said. "I wanted to get her interested in finding out more about her history."

His daughter took the puzzle to her junior high school, where approving teachers made sure it found its way to the principal, who copied it and distributed it across the school.

"They asked me if I could make more of them," Dunn said. "I told them I'd make more, since it gave me something to do."

Dunn had created three puzzles when his sister Zenola Smalls told him he was onto something.

"She convinced me to go out on the street and sell them," he said.

He put them in a little booklet and stood - rather tentatively - in front of the old Mays Department Store on Fulton St.

"I didn't want any of my friends to see me," he said. "But then a couple of pretty girls came by, and I thought maybe it wasn't so bad after all."

Dunn found himself energized by the favorable public reaction to his puzzles. He kept creating them - "I spent a lot of time at the New York Public Library and at the Schomburg [Center for Research in Black Culture]," he said.

By 2001, Dunn had a collection of puzzles and was looking for ways to expand his business. He turned to Project Enterprise, a nonprofit with offices in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx that provides advice and seed money to budding entrepreneurs looking to get businesses off the ground.

That group helped Dunn launch "Invision Publications" his puzzle-making company. Last month, Dunn was named Project Enterprise's 2007 Entrepreneur of the Year.

Public school teachers can order his puzzles from the Education Department's Web site, www.shopdoe.com.

Others can get it from www.puzzlesforus.com, or by calling (718) 538-6102.

Acquittal for Boot Camp Workers in Death of Teen Inmate

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Tensions ran high after eight former boot camp workers were acquitted of manslaughter in the death of a 14-year-old inmate who was videotaped being punched and kicked.

The case sparked outrage and spelled the end of Florida’s system of juvenile boot camps, but it took a jury just 90 minutes Friday to decide that the death of Martin Lee Anderson was not a crime.

Anger over the verdict was obvious outside the courtroom, where bystanders screamed "murderer" at former guard Henry Dickens as he described his relief at the verdict.

"I am truly, truly sorry this happened. Myself, I love kids," said Dickens, 60. He said Anderson "wasn’t beaten. Those techniques were taught to us and used for a purpose."

Anderson died a day after being hit and kicked by Dickens and six other guards as a nurse watched, a 30-minute confrontation that drew protests in the state capital.

The defendants testified they followed the rules at a get-tough facility where young offenders often feigned illness to avoid exercise. Their attorneys said that Anderson died not from rough treatment, but from a previously undiagnosed blood disorder.

The boy’s mother, Gina Jones, stormed out of the courtroom. "I cannot see my son no more. Everybody see their family members. It’s wrong," she said.

Anderson’s family repeatedly sat through the painful video as it played during testimony. They had long sought a trial, claiming local officials tried to cover up the case. The conservative Florida Panhandle county is surrounded by military bases and residents are known for their respect for law and order.

"You kill a dog, you go to jail," said Gina Jones’ lawyer, Benjamin Crump, outside court. "You kill a little black boy and nothing happens."

The guards, who are white, black and Asian, stood quietly as the judge read the verdicts. The all-white jury was escorted away from the courthouse and did not comment.

Special prosecutor Mark Ober said in a statement he was "extremely disappointed."

"In spite of these verdicts, Martin Lee Anderson did not die in vain," the statement read. "This case brought needed attention and reform to our juvenile justice system."

The defendants faced up to 30 years in prison had they been convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a child. The jury also decided against convicting them of lesser charges, including child neglect and culpable negligence.

Officials from the Department of Justice in Washington and U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida announced they were reviewing the state’s prosecution. Defense attorneys, however, said they considered a federal civil-rights case to be unlikely.

"The Department of Justice has yet another opportunity, unfortunately, to demonstrate to America’s minority populations that law enforcement officials acting outside the laws of this nation will be held accountable, that the misdeeds of a few rogue officers won’t be allowed to tarnish the good work of the vast majority and that any guilty officers’ conduct will be strongly scrutinized and met with remedial action rather than a wink and a nod," said NAACP Interim President & CEO Dennis Courtland Hayes.

"With a 90-minute verdict after a three-week trial (in the state case), it would be the same result," said attorney Bob Sombathy, who represents ex-guard Patrick Garrett.

Aside from hitting Anderson, the guards dragged him around the military-style camp’s exercise yard and forced him to inhale ammonia capsules in what they said was an attempt to revive him. The nurse stood by watching.

Defense attorneys argued that the guards properly handled what they thought was a juvenile offender faking illness to avoid exercising on his first day in the camp. He was brought there for violating probation for stealing his grandmother’s car and trespassing at a school.

The defense said Anderson’s death was unavoidable because he had undiagnosed sickle cell trait, a usually harmless blood disorder that can hinder blood cells’ ability to carry oxygen during physical stress.

Prosecutors said the eight defendants neglected the boy’s medical needs after he collapsed while running laps. They said the defendants suffocated Anderson by covering his mouth and forcing him to inhale ammonia.

Anderson died Jan. 6, 2006, when he was taken off life support, a day after the altercation. The case quickly grew and shook up the state’s boot camp and law enforcement system amid the boy’s family alleging a cover-up.

An initial autopsy by Dr. Charles Siebert, the medical examiner for Bay County, found Anderson died of natural causes from sickle cell trait. A second autopsy was ordered and another doctor concluded that the guards suffocated Anderson through their repeated use of ammonia capsules and by covering his mouth.

Anderson’s death led to the resignation of Florida Department of Law Enforcement chief Guy Tunnell, who established the camp when he was Bay County sheriff.

Then-Gov. Jeb Bush had been a strong supporter of the juvenile boot camps, but after Anderson’s death he backed the Legislature’s move to shut down the system and put more money into a less militaristic program.

The Legislature agreed to pay Anderson’s family $5 million earlier this year to settle civil claims.

Free speech could lead to online disconnect

David Lazarus
Consumer Confidential

October 10, 2007

If you're displeased with the way a company treats you, you're free to air your feelings in public, right? Not necessarily if you receive high-speed Internet access from AT&T Inc. or Verizon Communications Inc.

Buried deep within both companies' voluminous service contracts is language that says your Net access can be terminated for any behavior that AT&T or Verizon believes might harm its "name or reputation," or even the reputation of its business partners.

The language came to light the other day after AT&T sent notices to thousands of customers revising their service contracts as part of the company's merger last year with BellSouth.

It follows an incident last month in which Verizon Wireless blocked an abortion-rights group from sending text messages over the company's network, deeming the messages too controversial. The company subsequently backtracked from the decision.

Before that, AT&T was caught in August censoring political comments made by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder during a concert webcast. The company later said it had made a mistake.

AT&T and Verizon say they've never enforced the can't-criticize-us contract terms, which have been in place for years.

But the provisions highlight yet again the danger to free expression when a relative handful of private companies serve as gatekeepers to information networks. Whether it's a rock star ranting against President Bush or a disgruntled customer griping about shoddy service, how free is free speech in the digital era?

After Blogs Cry "Censorship," AT&T Says It Will Change Terms Of Service

getting roundly whiplashed for having a clause in their Terms of Service that could be interpreted as meaning they reserved the right to terminate the service of any customer who criticized them, AT&T DSL reached out to several blogs today with the following commitment to change their ToS:

"We are revising the terms of service to clarify our intent. The language in question will be revised to reflect AT&T's respect for our customers' right to express opinions and concerns over any matter they wish. And we will make clear that we do not terminate service because a customer expresses their opinion about AT&T."

We'll reserve judgment until the pixels dry. As of now, their ToS is still the same.

KKK Fliers Prompt Concern At Indy High School

Wed Oct 10, 7:19 AM ET
Hundreds of fliers promoting a "KKK revival" were found blowing around the campus of Arsenal Tech High School on Monday, school officials said Tuesday.

Officials said the fliers urged people to attend a rally at the school, in the 1500 block of East Michigan Street, on Halloween.

Indianapolis Public Schools officials said that staff members tracked down as many fliers as they could, but that students saw some of the messages.

"It looked like somebody created it with a marker and it said at the top 'KKK,'" said Adrian Kelly, a student at Tech.

The poorly penned, handwritten pages are filled with racial slurs and messages of hate toward black and Hispanic students, including swastikas.

"It just said that all the 'N' word and all the border hoppers are going to get killed on Oct. 31," said Tech student Keshia Cook.

Officials said they don't believe the threats are credible and are investigating the incident as a prank.

Authorities also don't think students were involved because the fliers were dropped off at the front gate.

"It was more offensive ... to think there was a hate group on campus or ... coming onto the campus to terrorize our students," said Robert Huggins, the school's vice principal.

School officials said they are working with the Indianapolis Metro Police Department to find those responsible for the flier and promised that any student found to have been involved will be expelled and arrested.

"They are utilizing the services of our criminal intelligence branch. They have put out some feelers in the neighborhood ... trying to get some additional information about who may be behind this," said IMPD Sgt. Paul Thompson.

In a news release Tuesday, IPS said that anyone who tries to disrupt the school on Oct. 31 or any other day will face arrest.

"The distribution of this flier is a disgusting display of racism and hatred," said Sarah Bogard, campus administrator. "Our students of all races and backgrounds will continue to find the Tech campus welcoming, safe and committed to providing them the best education possible."

Parents were notified by telephone message Tuesday about the incident and the school's response. Police will have a larger presence at the school on Halloween.

Hate crime charges could be filed in the case if authorities determine who is behind the fliers.

Is This Police Brutilaty: 15yr. old Arested for Curfew Violation


OBM: According to the officer the 15yr old bit him at the beginning of the arrest before they reached the front of the car. First, from the footage it seems that there was only this one kid who was in violation. So she was most likely with older friends or relatives at the time of the arrest. So why not right a citation and/or fine the parents instead. Second, it is not typical for a kid to bite a cop who reaches to grab them for an arrest. They are usually scared and are more likely to run than anything else. Lastly, I want to hear fro the girl weather or not she bit the officer. I bet she say she didn't. After viewing was all of this necessary for breaking curfew? What if he broke her arm or pulled it out of socket? then what?
Where were the parents or supervising adult while this was happening? Hopefully more info will come out about this.

D.C. Teen Shot by Officer in the Back of His Head

Autopsy Also Shows Unexplained Injuries

By Carol D. Leonnig
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, October 3, 2007; B01

The 14-year-old killed last month in a confrontation with D.C. police died of a gunshot wound to the back of his head, according to a newly obtained autopsy report.

The report also notes numerous unexplained cuts and bruises from blunt force trauma on the body of DeOnté Rawlings, especially the left side of his face, shoulder and back. The report offers no conclusions about police conduct or what caused the injuries.

"The body has some blunt force injuries including abrasions, contusions and lacerations and a single perforating gunshot wound," wrote A. Wayne Williams, a pathologist with the D.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Describing the gunshot wound, Williams wrote: "the overall pathway . . . is back to front, left to right and slightly upward."

The report, obtained yesterday by The Washington Post, marks the first time authorities have said DeOnté was shot in the back of the head in the Sept. 17 confrontation in Southeast Washington. But it does not settle questions surrounding the case. Police have said DeOnté was shot in a running gun battle after he opened fire on two off-duty officers. The youth's family has challenged that account, pointing out that no gun was found at the scene.

Carrie Brooks, a spokeswoman for Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D), said last night that the mayor has not seen the autopsy report and wants to be briefed before commenting.

"Obviously, a 14-year-old being shot in the back of the head -- or anywhere, for that matter -- gives him grave concern," Brooks said.

The U.S. attorney's office, FBI and D.C. police are investigating events, and a grand jury is likely to take on the case. Authorities have said they have had trouble finding witnesses who might be able to confirm or rebut the police account.

According to police, Officer James Haskel asked fellow officer and friend Anthony Clay to help him find a minibike that Haskel believed had been stolen from his home in Southeast. Off duty and out of uniform, the officers went looking for the minibike in Haskel's sport-utility vehicle and found DeOnté riding it on nearby Atlantic Street SE, police have said. DeOnté shot at the officer, police said, and Haskel got out of the SUV, pursued the youth on foot and shot him.

The autopsy report, dated Sept. 27, describes DeOnté as 5-foot-2 and 102 pounds. It includes a toxicology analysis that found no traces of drugs or alcohol in his blood.

The report notes that the youth's hands and fingers had no obvious gunshot residue, powder or soot. Police have said they did not perform gunshot residue tests because they are unreliable.

Greg Lattimer, an attorney for the Rawlings family, said the medical examiner's findings -- especially those describing injuries on the side and back of his body -- are "extremely troubling" and cast doubt on the police version of events.

"A kid doesn't get shot in the back of the head and then give himself a bunch of traumatic injuries," Lattimer said. "He didn't fall off a building."

Channing Phillips, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office, said it would be inappropriate to comment while authorities are still gathering information and sifting through evidence. But some law enforcement authorities, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case, said it is possible that DeOnté sustained injuries in a fall immediately after he was shot.

Kristopher Baumann, head of the Fraternal Order of Police lodge that represents the officers, declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation. Both officers have been placed on administrative leave, as is customary in police shooting cases.

Jonathan Arden, former chief medical examiner for the District, said in an interview that blunt force injuries are caused by the body striking something or being hit. He said the key to reconstructing events is looking for patterns that indicate whether the victim was hit or fell to the ground.

"You can have it because you are hit, or you can have impact with a surface," Arden said. "Depending on where you have the injury, and the possible pattern, you can distinguish between being hit and falling down."

For example, a series of impact injuries along bones that tend to stick out -- elbows, knees, cheekbones -- might indicate that the victim fell. "Could one fall cause all those injuries?" Arden asked. "Maybe. I'd want to see the injuries."

The autopsy was performed Sept. 18, the day after DeOnté's death. Besides the medical examiner, four police officers were present for the examination. They were identified by police as two 5th District detectives and two D.C. officers assigned to the crime lab.
