Скандал в Пекине

Общественность шокирована. Шокирована! Оказaлось, что на открытии Летних Олимпийских игр в Пекине пела не та маленькая девочка, которую показывали, а совсем другая, некрасивая. Невероятно. Такое осмысленное мероприятие, Летние Олимпийские игры, и тут на тебе. Такая неожиданность...

From correspondents in London -- PRINCE Charles said the widespread use of genetically modified crops would the "biggest disaster environmentally of all time" in a newspaper interview published today.

Charles said multinational food companies were conducting a "gigantic experiment with nature and the whole of humanity which has gone seriously wrong."

Small farmers would be the victims if "gigantic corporations" took over the mass production of food.

"We (will) end up with millions of small farmers all over the world being driven off their land into unsustainable, unmanageable, degraded and dysfunctional conurbations of unmentionable awfulness," he declared.

"What we should be talking about is food security, not food production - that is what matters and that is what people will not understand.

"And if they think it's somehow going to work because they are going to have one form of clever genetic engineering after another, then again count me out, because that will be guaranteed to cause the biggest disaster environmentally of all time."

Монархи против капитализма, это почетная тема!!!

А вот защита детей какая хорошая

ELKHORN, Wis. — When Tallan "T-Man" Latz was 5, he saw Joe Satriani playing guitar on TV. "I turned around to my dad and said, 'That's exactly what I want to do.' "

Three years and countless hours of practicing later, 8-year-old Tallan is a blues guitar prodigy. He's played in bars and clubs, including the House of Blues in Chicago, and even jammed with Les Paul and Jackson Browne. He has festivals scheduled for the rest of the summer and has drawn interest from venues worldwide.

An anonymous e-mail sent to state officials complained that Tallan was too young to perform in taverns and clubs because of state child labor laws. His booking agent even got an anonymous letter threatening her with death if she keeps booking him.

Each day he performs, the employer can be fined $25 to $1,000 and the parent $10 to $250. Jennifer Ortiz of the state Equal Rights Division said her agency has a responsibility to enforce the law once it becomes aware of a violation.
