Okay, the smoke is more-or-less cleared now.

It's most likely Coast Guard's fault, pretty much.

But Philippine TV likes to play Philippines as the victim.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

... You walking the plank will be the warmup entertainment. Need to research ways to attract sharks to the plank site.

I do caution against using the media of the 2 countries without a 3rd party checking. Most media have their own agenda in their home (or host) countries after all (mostly ratings and advertisers)

Blood. Sharks love blood. Just pour a vat of pig/cow/chicken blood into an area and the sharks will swarm in.

Regardless, I would only be there as a guard to ensure that the girls are not abused. I will also double up as a QA supervisor, if they are caught slacking I'll flip their skirts and they will perk up which then they will reply "哥哥变态" or "kuya masama" - *gets tied to sonar dipper and dunked into the water*

Indeed, best to wait for the result of the investigation to be published before drawing any definite conclusion.

For what it's worth, several news agencies in TW have reported that TW's investigators have been viewing the video and questioning several PHL personnel on board the PCG vessel, and they've said that the fishing boat did not ram the PCG ship, but the PCG ship did try to get the fishing boat to leave via loudspeaker. When that didn't work, the commander ordered his troops to fire at the boat.

As for how much of that is accurate, I think we'll know pretty soon.

The effect sonar has on human bodies is the same as a microwave oven - it transmits so much energy at the point of source that it can go beyond bursting eardrums; enough saturation can make one pop into a gory bloodpuff of flesh.

You......you are not really planning to really tie me to one and use it for ASW, are you?

No genetically engineered wheat has been approved for U.S. farming. U.S. Department of Agriculture officials said the wheat is the same strain as a genetically modified wheat that was legally tested by seed giant Monsanto a decade ago but never approved. Monsanto stopped testing that product in Oregon and several other states in 2005.
How the modified wheat made it from a private company’s testing grounds to the Eastern Oregon commercial wheat field is a question investigators are trying to unravel in a mystery that could have global implications on the wheat trade in the U.S. and abroad.
Many countries around the world will not accept imports of genetically modified foods, and the United States exports about half of its wheat crop. Zemetra said the presence of the modified crop shows the need for testing.

curious if those Organic Wheat Farmers have a case against Monsanto for contaminating their wheat field.

I certainly hope so. This could cost hundreds of millions in lost exports, not just to the particular farm where it was found.

Japan has already suspended some wheat imports in the light of this discovery.

why is a lot of country doesn't want to import genetically modified crop? It's not that big of a difference with selective crop breeding isn't it?

Given than it's of Monsanto than we are talking about, I would be surprised to see them going against those organic farmers .

True there some health reasons as its still soon to judge the consequences of Monsanto things on human, But its mostly for economical reason imho. Many countries in europe doesnt want that their farmers end up dependant of the chemicals needs.

Partly irrational fear of frankenfood. Partly fear of contamination (like, hm, exactly what happened here...) and food poisoning.

I remember a story about a GM breed of wheat that made its own pesticide. If you looked at the quantity of pesticide over a ton of wheat, it wasn't any more than if you'd applied it by plane over a normal field. But, nature being what it is, if you looked at it over 100g, you'd get lots with almost no pesticide, and lots with several times the allowed dosage.

Yeah, the science is still out on consuming GMO. But the *economics* is deadly. Hey, lets give "intellectual property" control of all seed crops of the planet over to a small group? Especially when wind, crop drift, and genetic contamination legally destroys the competition?

This makes the music industry legal shenanigans and corrosion of innovation look paltry.

Monsanto has sued farmers who have their seeds germinate without contract by the company. In most cases, these farmers had no idea because the seeds came from other farms and were carried by nature.

The company has too much power with its patent. It never should have been granted.

Iran presidential debate on economy dissolves into chaos

Iran's first debate between candidates for the presidency degenerated into acrimony live on state television on Friday when, instead of discussing the economy, some of the hopefuls resorted to sniping over the questions and format.
