The German Beekeepers Association (DIB), which represents almost 100,000 beekeepers, has called for a nationwide ban on GMO cultivation according to reports from the German NGO keine-gentechnik.de.
This call for a ban follows controversial legislation that has allowed EU member states to opt-out of GM cultivation even though it has been approved at the European Union level.
Though GM supporters have been angry about the new law, calling it ‘unfounded’ and stating that it ‘lacks scientific [...]
Greece is saved? All over the planet, news headlines are boldly proclaiming that a “deal” has been reached which will give Greece the money that it needs and keep it in the eurozone. But as you will see below, this is not true at all. Yesterday, when I wrote that “there never was going to be any deal“, I was not exaggerating. This “deal” was not drafted with the intention of “saving Greece”. As I explained in my previous article, these nego [...]
Did you notice that Greece’s creditors are not rushing to offer the Greeks a new deal in the wake of the stunning referendum result on Sunday? In fact, it is being reported that the initial reaction to the “no” vote from top European politicians was “a thunderous silence“. Needless to say, the European elite were not pleased by how the Greek people voted, but they still have all of the leverage. In particular, it is the Germans that are holding all of the card [...]
(NaturalNews) Monsanto may be expanding its operations in the United States, but elsewhere, lawmakers, scientists, activists and ordinary citizens are increasingly questioning (and in many cases banning) the introduction of GM crops, along with the use of the glyphosate herbicide... [...]
“invent a parallel currency”… got a computer? After a few negative comments it appears that the SGT site has redoubled its efforts to keep rubbing our noses in Greek stuff. If they care so much about Greece then perhaps they should start a Greek website to teach the Greeks to prep and buy PM’s? [...]
I recently snapped a photo from an advertising circular that was delivered to my home, proudly promoting Monsanto’s ‘probably carcinogenic’ Round Up, on sale no less, at a local hardware store. While US garden and DIY stores are still selling cancer-causing poison in a jug, a German retail giant will no longer carry glyphosate-containing products as of September 30, 2015
More than 350 ‘toom Baumarkt DIY’ stores belonging to the REWE Group are removing any product that contains this end [...]

Nearly all money is created by commercial banks in the act of lending. They also decide whom to lend it to, and for what purposes. Is this good for the economy? A growing movement is arguing for an alternative.
Where does money come from? Printing it yourself, unsurprisingly, is illegal. But in today’s digital society, creating money has less and less to do with the printing of notes or minting of coins.
“If you ask people where money comes from, most of them w [...]

Commerzbank, Germany’s second-largest bank, a toppling marvel of ingenuity during the Financial Crisis that was bailed out by ever dutiful if unenthusiastic taxpayers, will now reward these very folks with what Germans have come to look forward to: the Wrath of Draghi.
It started with Deutsche Skatbank, a division of VR-Bank Altenburger Land. The small bank was the trial balloon in imposing the Wrath of Draghi on savers and businesses. Effective November 1, those with over [...]

Don Quixote is easily one of the most entertaining books of the Renaissance, if not all-time. And almost everyone’s heard of it, even if they haven’t read it. You know the basic plot line- Alonso Quixano becomes fixated with the idea of chivalry and sets out to single-handedly resurrect knighthood. His wanderings take him far across the land where he gets involved in comic adventures that are terribly inconvenient for the other characters. He famously assaults a group of [...]
In December 2013, the German authorities completed a Renewal Assessment Report (RAR) for the re-approval of glyphosate in the European Union. According to the German authorities, there were no risks to health, and it was even suggested that the acceptable daily thresholds for long term exposure (ADI) to which consumers could be exposed might be raised. Now, Testbiotech (The Institute for Independent Impact Assessment in Biotechnology) has published a comprehensive report on the latest determina [...]

Sierra Leone and Liberia, the two hardest-hit countries, have likely already been lost to the disease, claims Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit and other nearby countries could be next if appropriate aid isn’t delivered immediately.

While many U.S. supermarkets continue to stick their heads in the ground when it comes to potential GMO dangers, Germany’s top supermarkets (behemoths when it comes to European retail food supply) are delivering a big blow to biotech. The German poultry industry will now be forced to once again use non-GMO feed.
Just last Thursday it was announced, with broad consensus, that starting from January 1st 2015, the German Poultry Association (ZDG), will have to stop using GMO feed for both [...]
