Quotes

"They're similar but biologically different," says Bellott. "Yet, we have cell biologists and biochemists actively studying cells without any idea whether the cells are XX or XY. This is so fundamental to biology and biomedicine, and yet no one's really paid much attention to it."
Both genes, which according to Kaessmann are "involved in testicular development," have thus emerged "nearly at the same time but in a totally independent way"
"What I stop doing is just as important as what I start and continue to do," says best-selling author and blogger Danielle Laporte. "Stopping equals room to run free and create from the deepest place of being without restraint or compromise."
Poultry Litter —by Robocop : "Although passages like this one from Upton Sinclair’s 1906 publication, “The Jungle” led to the creation of the USDA, the meatpacking industry has 'recovered' to a large degree from regulations it endured for about 60 years. The Iowa Beef Packers (IBP) revolutionized the industry in the 60′s by moving its plants from urban areas to rural sites, far from union strongholds, which have been obliterated, and prying eyes. They then proceeded to hire immigrant workers from Mexico, and introduced a new division of labor that eliminated skilled butchers. Other companies, in order to compete successfully, were forced to adopt these new business methods. Today, the top four meatpackers—IBP, ConAgra, Excell and National Beef—control close to 90% of the market. Meatpackers once again suffer from low wages and dangerous conditions. And because profit margins are slim in the industry, the big four companies strive to keep all costs as low as possible."
