This is vivisection
This year's World Day for Laboratory Animals is probably the most important World Day ever. Never before has the anti vivisection movement been so close to finally defeating the vivisectors. We are tantalisingly close to achieving an historic victory at Oxford and, should we defeat Oxford University, the ramifications for the future of vivisection are enormous. The ripple effect will be felt not only in the UK but worldwide.

School Diet Change Brings Improved Behavior, Healthier, More Focused Students

09-03-2006 01:46

"Before the Appleton Wisconsin high school replaced their cafeteria's processed foods with wholesome, nutritious food, the school was described as out-of-control. There were weapons violations, student disruptions, and a cop on duty full-time. After the change in school meals, the students were calm, focused, and orderly. There were no more weapons violations, and no suicides, expulsions, dropouts, or drug violations. The new diet and improved behavior has lasted for seven years, and now other schools are changing their meal programs with similar results."

Council announces ridiculous move in anti-begging campaign

28-02-2006 22:57

Should this man be treated like a criminal?

Nottingham City Council has announced a new measure to reduce the 'problem of begging' on Nottinghams streets. A press release given out yesterday (Feb 27th) states: 'Nottingham City Council is urging members of the public to help them eliminate begging in the city by erecting signs in begging hotspots telling them to call the anti-social behaviour helpline if they see individuals begging'

The Council's 'respect for Nottingham' website states: The aim of the Respect for Nottingham strategy is to clean up the City’s streets, take an uncompromising stand against begging, street prostitution and drug dealing and demonstrate that Nottingham is not a soft touch for those bent on criminality and damaging the quality of life in the city. Interesting how they consider begging as 'criminal' and damaging the quality of life for others...
