The outlawing of drugs such as cannabis, MDMA and LSD amounts to the “the worst case of scientific censorship since the Catholic Church banned the works of Copernicus and Galileo”, the former Government drugs advisor Professor David Nutt has claimed.

A team of Australian industrial designers and scientists have unveiled their prototype for the world's first bionic eye. It is hoped the device, which involves a microchip implanted in the skull and a digital camera attached to a pair of glasses, will allow recipients to see the outlines of their surroundings. If successful, the bionic eye has the potential to help over 85 per cent of those people classified as legally blind.

The journal Nature has reported that scientists have created a 'time cloak' which bends light to tear holes in time. The new technique is much quicker than a similar invention unveiled last year.

I am a Norwegian 27 years old boy/man from the West part of Norway and I live on a farm with organic dairy cows.
I have a little vegetable garden that I grow organic.
It is really important that the farmers/people have the power to grow their own food and seeds without paying fees to the big global companies.
We need healthy soil and groundwater for our and generations to come.
This type of GM corn is: Roundup-ready corn. It means that the corn does not die if the farmers spray Roundup on the corn, but all the other plants that grow in between dies. The corn will then contain roundup when it's ready to eat.
Afterwards the Roundup goes down in the groundwater.
I fear more use of Roundup after an eventual legalization of GM corn nk603.
French scientists have found out that rats get cancer from eating this corntype:

Monsanto have the patent on both the corn and Roundup.
It's obvious that Monsanto only will make more money and thay want more power.
If you control the seeds you control the people.
Let the people control their own seeds.
Yes to a GMfree, poisonfree and natural world.In Norwegian;Eg heitte Kristoffer og er 27 år, frå vestlandet. Eg bur på eit små bruk med økologisk kumjølkeproduksjon. Der har eg ein liten åker eg dyrkar etter økologiske prinsipp.Det er viktig for meg at all verdens folk har rett til å dyrka sin eigen mat, og å kunna avla sine eigne frø, utan å måtta betala avgifter til store frøfirma, slik som Monsanto.Maisfrøa som monsanto vil selja i Noreg toler å verta sprøyta med planteværnmiddelet Roundup/Glyfosat (gift som dreper uønska planter).Planta tek opp gifta og havnar kanskje på ditt matfat.Sitat; I Norge bruker vi nesten bare overflatevann som drikkevann.
Undersøkelser viser rester av glyfosat i overflatevann, spesielt som
følge av ugrassprøyting på høsten. Bioforsk skriver i rapporten at når
det på etiketten opplyses at midlet er giftig/meget giftig for
vannlevende organismer, så er det et stort dilemma i områder med
overflateavrenning og erosjon. EU-kommisjonen uttalte allerede i 2001 at
Roundup er ”giftig overfor organismer som lever i vann”, og kan ”føre
til ødeleggende virkninger på miljøet på lang sikt.”Sitat 2;Kontrollmyndighetene i EU har i mange år visst at glyfosat gir fosterskader.Link til begge sitata: http://www.oikos.no/newsread/page.aspx?docid=13440 Det er òg funne restar av Glyfosat/Roundup i grunnvatnet i fleire europeiske land, mest sansynleg så finst det i det norske grunnvatnet også.Det vert stimulert til meir bruk av Roundup om maisen (GM corn nk603) Vert introdusert i Noreg. Det må ikkje skje.Franske forskarar har fått prov/bevis på at rotter som et maisen (GM corn nk603)får kreft.http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health-fitness/france-to-probe-cancer-link-to-genetically-modified-corn/story-fneuz9ev-1226477704690
http://www.ijbs.com/v05p0706.htm Monsanto har patent på både denne maissorten og Roundup.Det er innlysande at Monsanto ynskjer meir pengar og makt i heile verden.Viss du kontrollerar frøa i verden, så kontrollerer du folket.Ja til kun frø utan genmodifisering.Ja til giftfri mat og reint vatn.Av: Kristoffer Nerhus.

What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atom's actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that literally allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.

April 25 (Reuters) - Heavy use of the world's most popular herbicide, Roundup, could be linked to a range of health problems and diseases, including Parkinson's, infertility and cancers, according to a new study. The peer-reviewed report, published last week in the scientific journal Entropy, said evidence indicates that residues of "glyphosate," the chief ingredient in Roundup weed killer, which is sprayed over millions of acres of crops, has been found in food. Those residues enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease, according to the report, authored by Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Anthony Samsel, a retired science consultant from Arthur D. Little, Inc. Samsel is a former private environmental government contractor as well as a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists. "Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body," the study says. We "have hit upon something very important that needs to be taken seriously and further investigated," Seneff said. Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries have warned that heavy use of glyphosate is causing problems for plants, people and animals. The EPA is conducting a standard registration review of glyphosate and has set a deadline of 2015 for determining if glyphosate use should be limited. The study is among many comments submitted to the agency. Monsanto is the developer of both Roundup herbicide and a suite of crops that are genetically altered to withstand being sprayed with the Roundup weed killer. These biotech crops, including corn, soybeans, canola and sugarbeets, are planted on millions of acres in the United States annually.
