Meeting the need for high-speed internet access
While much of the general population takes online connectivity for granted, there are farming areas that continue to struggle with being plugged in to the internet. And with the integration of online activities into farming activities, reliable connectivity is a must. Telespazio is bridging that gap, offering a variety of affordable solutions for online access, anywhere in the world. While producers surrounded by high mountains may come to mind as a primary audience, the company says producers in areas where service is scattered are also taking advantage of the product offering.

GMO safety debate is over
The GMO debate is over — again. Last week, the prestigious National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine issued what is probably the most far-reaching report ever produced by the scientific community on genetically engineered food and crops. The conclusion was unambiguous: Having examined hundreds of scientific papers written on the subject, sat through hours of live testimony from activists and considered hundreds more comments from the general public, the scientists wrote that they "found no substantiated evidence that foods from GE crops were less safe than foods from non-GE crops."


Jewish joke: Jews Please Leave

Avram went into Church, took out his tallis, yarmulke, and proceeded to pray. The clergyman entered to start services: "Will all non-Christians please leave." Avram continued davening."

Again the clergyman said, "Will all non-Christians please leave."

And again, Avram prayed.

Finally, the distraught clergyman moved to Avram. "Will ALL JEWS please leave."

At this, Avram removed his yarmulke, packed up his tallis, then went to the altar, picked up a statue of Jesus and said, "Come bubbela they don't want us here anymore."
