Society for Microbiology’s journal, may have identi- fied another possible cause of CCD — a tobacco virus. Whether or not the Tobacco Ring Virus (TRSV) is the cause of CCD, the fact that a plant virus would make such a radical jump from plant to animal is a cause for concern. It’s not just jumping from one species to another, but moving up 6 levels in the biological hier- archy and jumping from the plant kingdom to the ani- mal kingdom. linked-to-bee-hive-collapse/

ordered the cancellation of a plan by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to develop a national license-plate tracking system after privacy advocates raised concern about the initiative. The order came just days after ICE solicited proposals from companies to compile a database of license-plate information from commercial and law enforcement tag readers. Officials said the database was intended to help apprehend fugi- tive illegal immigrants, but the plan raised concerns that the movements of ordinary citizens under no criminal suspicion could be scrutinized.

Mailman School of Public Health shows that drivers killed in car crashes are increasingly under the influ- ence of pot and other drugs besides alcohol. An analy- sis of the toxicological testing data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System shows that, from 1999 to 2010, of 23,591 drivers killed in auto accidents, 39.7 percent tested positive for alcohol and 24.8 percent for other drugs. While positive results for alcohol remained stable, the prevalence of non-alcohol drugs rose sig- nificantly from 16.6 percent in 1999 to 28.3 percent in 2010. For marijuana, the rates just about tripled, from 4.2 percent to 12.2 percent. h cmnw/hnmrjaakls

More than 900 Idaho wolves have already been killed during state- sanctioned hunting and trapping seasons. The sense- less slaughter will continue unless the courts step in and stop it. C

Multiple [8] bankers have been found dead in recent weeks, all of them have been ruled suicides despite the fact that little information has been released in some of the cases. The fact that many of these deaths seem to be tied to JP Morgan is arousing further suspicion that there is more to this story than meets the eye.h
