Re: Genetically modified crops are the future and must not be blocked, say scientists - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth...
"Profs just wanna make as much from chemical and biologics firms as their American colleagues do for endorsing monocultures that may produce big profits and crops for a few years before they fail and whole seasons are lost because - opps - we did not think the natural system would adapt so quickly to attack the monocultures we created!?!" - Ned Hamson

Re: Shadow Economy In The UK GDP [infographic] - http://dailyinfographic.com/shadow-...
"1. They overlooked transgender and male sex workers - tsk, tsk. 2. Are jewelry and illegal included in expenditures? 3. Does this mean if Conservatives get a new majority that they will legalize drugs and sex work and tax it? 4. Where does UK stand in relationship to other EU members on drugs and sex work, Cameron always wants to be number one?" - Ned Hamson

Re: Around 100,000 Hungarians rally for democracy as internet tax hits nerve - http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News...
"I have to wonder if 100,000 Americans or Lebanese would march for internet freedom or accessibility? Have not seen it happen. We have trouble in both states getting people together to stop racial profiling and conflicts in our cities." - Ned Hamson

Re: Frangieh: Vacuum better than weak president | News , Lebanon News | THE DAILY STAR - http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News...
"As long as it is just people in Tripoli killing each other, money is still being made, it's ok not to have a real government? Let the past bury the past and find a way to create a new Lebanon - maybe with the students who have no jobs - give them a try!?!" - Ned Hamson

Re: Danes' trust in public institutions has fallen - http://www.thelocal.dk/2014102...
"Happiness poll may have been greased but more likely that people have been overly influenced by all bad news about public agencies they read about whether Danish or not - the mind seems to lump them all into one bucket. In any given day, we can read or hear that hundreds of public officials in a hundred different countries have botched this or treated people badly. The thing to remember is that even those who are doing the polls are influenced by the need to make money and attract attention." - Ned Hamson

Re: Has Bill Cosby Ruined the Legacy of "The Cosby Show"? - http://damemagazine.com/2014...
"In a quandary - without a trial and an examination of witnesses, it is difficult to say how Mr. Cosby and his former series and reruns should be viewed. Celebrities and non-celebrities who get away with sexual abuse and violence against women and children do not just stop or age out of their abuse - they need to be stopped. Accusations should be followed up and someone or some grand jury decide to indict or not." - Ned Hamson

Re: Kat Von D Attacks News Crews After Her Tattoo Shop Destroyed In Fire - http://laist.com/2014...
"Some "News" people just do not know when to back off and give people space. Sort of like getting in someone's face while they are holding a dying loved one in their arms! Cut her a break and understand how upset you would be in your life's work had just burned?" - Ned Hamson

Re: Can Paid Internships Help to Bridge the Gap in Manufacturing? - http://www.foodmanufacturing.com/article...
"50-60 years of "go to college, be a professional, get a white collar job!" will not be overcome with offers of paid internship. When all work is valued and honored - and the pay differential is not wide - people will start again to do the things they are drawn to and have talent for." - Ned Hamson

Re: Protesters Accuse Met Opera Of Spreading "Jewish Hatred" At "The Death Of Klinghoffer" Premiere - http://gothamist.com/2014...
"All part of a continued and "orchestrated" attempt to enlist people sympathetic to right-wing Israeli politics, and concerned people who do not fact-check anything to believe that the GOP should get money and support from those who support right-wing Israel or have a general sympathy for Isreal and are against anti-semitism." - Ned Hamson

Re: Danish imam calls Jews 'apes and pigs' in video - http://www.thelocal.dk/2014101...
"Huh? Hate comments about Muslims, Jews, Christian, Jains, Hindus, Wicca are all based on fear, unacceptable to me and should be unacceptable to most, if not all. It's sort of like calico cats not liking tuxedo cats - just does not make sense, because they are all cats." - Ned Hamson

Re: Gamergate has backfired spectacularly on its nincompoop perpetrators - The Week - http://theweek.com/article...
""nincompoop perpetrators" - so they were not haters or criminal for trying to ruin people and threaten them with death? Easy to see that you side with the nincompoop perps and not the victims." - Ned Hamson

Re: Danish imam calls Jews 'apes and pigs' in video - http://www.thelocal.dk/2014101...
"Not stupid, just smart enough to read how accepted Muslim scholars translate the Koran to see if some commenting here are telling the truth or if they have misunderstood the few for the many. Not bent of proving all Islam, Christianity, Hinduism are evil and their believers because some "followers" bend the language to serve their bigoted and hateful needs. I have been in Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Algeria, and Morocco researching political and religious thought and movement." - Ned Hamson

"Private - meaning an owned site not one from a not-for-profit. I have been reading the Koran for a long time - before 9-11. What it says, like what is in the Bible, Torah, and other religious texts has little to do with those who want to use religion as their excuse or basis for fear, hate, killing." - Ned Hamson

Re: Danish imam calls Jews 'apes and pigs' in video - http://www.thelocal.dk/2014101...
"What you quote does not say that all Jews are... And the link you offered is to a private site. I will check out further. Here is what I find - no reference to Jews. Surah 5. Al-Maida, Ayah 60 قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ ذَٰلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ ۚ مَنْ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ شَرٌّ مَكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَنْ سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ Asad:Say: "Shall I tell you who, in the sight of God, deserves a yet worse retribution than these? They whom God has rejected and whom He has condemned, and whom He has turned into apes and swine because they worshipped the powers of evil: 77 these are yet worse in station, and farther astray from the right path [than the mockers]." 78 Malik:Ask them: "Should I tell you of those who will have even worse than this in retribution from Allah? They are those whom Allah has cursed; who have incurred His wrath; some of whom were turned into apes and pigs; who..." - Ned Hamson

"I have to wonder why other religious leaders of Islam do not drive these two and those like them from their ranks. They defame Islam, its believers and spit in the face of humanity whom is love by all the different views of God." - Ned Hamson

Re: Can Celebrities Be Real Feminists? - http://www.damemagazine.com/2014...
"Hmmm? Those who consider themselves serious thought leaders - and are - sometimes get upset with all the attention given to celebrities, whom the thought leader may consider as an amateur in the serious field who might take attention away from serious work. You are a 24/7 animal rights advocate and wonder at all the attention the latest star for animal rights gets. And the next day, you are seeking their support to help bring attention to your cause or raise money. A delicate balance but we do need each other's support and need to be supportive of our own - don't we?" - Ned Hamson

Re: Ebola death toll crosses 4,000 - http://www.aljazeera.com/news...
"I am aware of what you say - many others are not - Ebola scary and needs addressing but not as "get out of jail card" for drug companies who are looking for feel good points now but generally ignore "orphan" illnesses that don't kill enough people for them to make big profit." - Ned Hamson

"They wanted publicity for the "defection" to recruit more "defectors" and you helped them achieve their goal - not such a good move. Perhaps you should note why you felt you "had" to report their propaganda move?" - Ned Hamson
