Violations at McDonald´s, Yum
China supplier company-led: regulator

SHANGHAI- Food safety violations at Shanghai Husi Food Co Ltd, a supplier to global brands including McDonald´s Corp and Yum Brands Inc, were company-led and not the acts of individuals, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing the Shanghai food and drug watchdog. McDonald´s and KFC´s parent Yum, along with a number of other global brands, have been pulled into a food safety scandal in China after it emerged that Shanghai Husi Food, a unit of U.S.-based OSI Group LLC, had supplied expired meat to clients."We discovered that some of the company´s illegal behavior was not the behavior of individuals, but

It is a China-based supplier, but owned by a US company.

Syrian children´s deaths
´caused by vaccine mix-up´
BBC News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/18/2014 12:32:36 PM     Post Reply
Medics carrying out a vaccination programme in rebel-held northern Syria accidentally administered a muscle relaxant to up to 75 children, killing 15 of them, the opposition says. A preliminary investigation by the National Coalition found atracurium was given to the children instead of a solution used to mix measles vaccines. The packaging for the drug is said to be similar to that of the solution. All of the children who died on Tuesday were between six and 18 months old. Their parents initially accused the opposition health authorities of not storing the vaccines properly or using out-of-date medication The National

Lethal Violence in Chimps Occurs
Naturally, Study Suggests
New York Times, by James Gorman    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/17/2014 4:28:37 PM     Post Reply
Are chimpanzees naturally violent to one another, or has the intrusion of humans into their environment made them aggressive? A new study, published Wednesday in Nature, is setting off a new round of debate around this question. The study’s authors argue that a review of all known cases when chimpanzees or bonobos in Africa killed members of their own species shows that violence is a natural part of chimp behavior and not the result of actions by humans that push chimp aggression to lethal attacks. The researchers say their analysis supports the idea that warlike violence in chimps is a natural behavior that

HOUSTON -- New accusations against Adrian Peterson come from another mother who has another four-year-old son of Peterson, and also involve Peterson striking his boy as a form of discipline. (Snip) Earlier Monday, a top law enforcement official confirmed knowledge of the allegations by the mother of Peterson´s son back in June 2013. Photos, which the KHOU I-Team obtained from a source, show a head wound to a boy identified as Peterson´s four year old son. It is a wound that weeks later, left a scar above his right eye.

“To be honest with you, I feel very confident with my actions because I know my intent,” Adrian Peterson told police officers who’d come to find out why the body of his four-year-old son was lacerated with what a doctor judged to be the marks of two beatings. His comments were in a police report obtained by CBS News in Houston; the incident took place while the child was on a visit to Peterson,(Snip) at his house in Spring, Texas. The four-year-old, according to Peterson, had pushed another of his children, who was about the same age, from his place

Is CNN new “Crossfire” leaving us so soon? “My sources say Crossfire is toast,” a TV industry insider told The Mirror. A publicist from CNN describes it like this: “The program is on extended hiatus.” Most importantly, sources say staffers from “Crossfire” are being absorbed into “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” In fact, CNN personnel from other shows are making room for staffers from “Crossfire.” Behind the scenes, CNN is allegedly saying the show may make yet another comeback. Quick question for CNN: If you no longer have a dedicated staff for a show, how is that still a show? CNN’s “Crossfire” took an eight-year

She later accused the police of targeting her as a prostitute because she was black.She and her publicist immediately scheduled the customary New York media tour. The goal of the tour was to fulfill the never ending thirst of the national media to promote stories around racism, sexism and the various “ism’s” the professional left loves to tout. Unfortunately between scheduling the tour and actually appearing on the daily talks, the truth came out.Apparently Ms. Watts and her boyfriend

The House Select Committee on Benghazi is set to hold its first public hearing this week on September 17th.However, a note of caution should be added not to expect too much “substance” as an outcome. As most readers are now aware the Benghazi FUBAR is essentially two-thirds a result of bad policy, and one-third a result of terrible decisions as a result of that bad policy. To date nothing has surfaced to undermine the essential research we have shared within the Benghazi Brief. Actually, to the contrary “The Brief” has withstood relentless scrutiny. Unfortunately that also means Trey Gowdy will

Perhaps the best way to think of this is to use President Obama’s own words. It appears the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” have struck up a truce with ISIS. That’s a problem, because Obama’s ISIS elimination plan requires the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” to fight against ISIS on the ground while we shoot at ISIS from the sky. If the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” don’t put the pointy end toward the Islamic State, oops, wait, sorry… the non-Islamic Islamic State (NI-ISIS) in Syria, then who will?

Mark Sanford, R-S.C., announced Friday that he broke off his engagement to Argentine fiancee Maria Belen Chapur, saying on Facebook that he was forced to end the relationship because his ex-wife had filed a new legal complaint against him.The post came days after Sanford’s ex-wife, Jenny Sanford, lobbed a new round of legal troubles at the former governor. Her latest legal complaint, filed Aug. 28, demanded Sanford undergo anger management and sought to modify the couple’s existing custody arrangement. Sanford also said he had decided to hire a lawyer to defend him in the dispute.

This letter sent to the Saint Louis Dispatch by Benjamin Crump clearly showcases the growing sense of desperation. As with almost all things from the mind of the Crump it will also backfire. (Snip) Just because a judge blocks a media publication from seeing the official police and criminal justice system records does not mean the media, traditional or new, will be blocked from getting copies of incident reports, victim reports, police reports, and law enforcement engagement records. Like perhaps for instance, oh, I don’t know – what if Big Mike were involved in: four assault charges, three burglary charges, one

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push
