Wine Worry Glyphosate Toxin Turns Up in Wines


Monsanto’s toxic Roundup herbicide glyphosate has been found in all 10 California vintages tested, including organic wines. While glyphosate isn’t sprayed directly onto grapes because it would kill the vines, it’s often used to spray the ground in the vineyard to be absorbed via the roots. Sometimes, glyphosate drifts from conven- tional vineyards into nearby organic and biodynamic vineyards. Other times, the toxin


remains in the soil after a con- ventional farm


has been converted to organic; the chemical


may persist on site for more than 20 years. Glyphosate is patented as an antibiotic. Designed to kill


bacteria, it harms both soils and human health, and has been cited as a human carcinogen by the World Health Organization. For glyphosate-related consumer information, search Actions at MomsAcrossAmerica.com.

Artificial Intelligence Helps Locate People and Wildlife


Artificial intelligence (AI) is helping doctors and scientists worldwide do their jobs better. In wildlife preservation, many researchers want to know how many animals there are and where they live, but


Tanya Berger-Wolf, a professor of computer science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, states, “Scientists do not have the capacity to do this, and there are not enough GPS collars or satellite tracks in the world.” At AI-driven Wildbook.org, photos are uploaded by


experts and the public and analyzed for species, age and even gender. One massive Kenyan study in 2015 prompted officials to alter their lion management program. Also, the locations of stranded victims of floods,


earthquakes or other disasters can be determined via computer programmers writing basic algorithms that examine extensive footage. In flooded areas, AI technol- ogy can also find debris that harbors trapped people. AI techniques can even monitor social media sites to find out more about missing people and disasters.
