Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…
1. film director Oliver Stone showed the world – again – what a bigot he is . He’d have to be a friend of Mel Gibson’s, wouldn’t he? And Helen Thomas’s too.
3. I loved this treehugger article explaining how tradition knowledge informs innovation . As I’m an old guy, of course I’d love it.
4. the Age reported how Myki smart cards, newly introduced on Victoria’s public transport, are allowing police to track people’s movements . Big Brother’s not a member of my family.
5. Nutrition Diva said that regarding supplements for osteoarthritis: don’t bother with chondroitin, and try glucosamine for three months as it either works or it doesn’t . It didn’t work for me.
6. I came across the concept of ‘free range children’ . And I think it’s a good one.
7. I was impressed by a couple growing all the food for their 100-person wedding reception . Good for them; and all their guests.
8. Prime Minister Gillard unveiled a ‘cash for clunkers’ scheme funded by cuts to existing renewable energy programmes . It may (or may not) be a vote winner, but it’s stupid.
Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.
