Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…
1. and indeed yesterday marked four years that Hamas has illegally held Gilad Shalit incommunicado after kidnapping him . And still the world tolerates the Hamas terrorists and denies Israel its legitimate right of self-defence against them. Shame.
2. the BMJ published research showing no association between the risk of early childhood cancers and mothers’ exposure to mobile phone base stations during pregnancy . Hmmm. Interesting.
3. the Invasive Species Council told us that in the Concord woods made famous by Thoreau, weeds are responding to climate change faster than native plants . Ho hum.
4. another warning was published about the hearing effects of listening to risk to MP3 players . Not one study’s shown that listening to MP3 players improves hearing.
5. treehugger put out a ranked list of Australia’s most sustainable cities . Does anyone care?
6. I came across this compendium of pet care and welfare topics . I’ll read some when I have time.
7. I read this Grammar Girl piece about when to use ‘which’ versus ‘that’ . It’s something that’s always puzzled me.
8. the Media Department of Daylesford Organics triumphed again . Oh, that photograph!
Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.
