    For whatever reason I'm finding since my heart stuff, I don't have nearly as much patience as I used to. It's not just 5th period, I just get fed up with the kids and their "you owe me" attitudes.

    Maybe it's time to hang up the chalk?

    I know a lot of people who feel that way and don't have heart problems.

    At home I'm correcting or making time to hang out with James and Mika.

    Teachers, especially English teachers, really have no life during the school year.

    Can I sue?

    I am not saying it's not an issue - I'm saying that this article provides no solid evidence that it is, but draws the conclusion that the correlation equals causation in this case. This is bad reporting and exists to support a bias.
    Ooh baby, I love it when you talk critical thinking.

    Yes, large companies have been caught doing evil things. So have small and in-between companies, but the big ones get the attention because they're the most press-worthy. But just like correlation doesn't equal causation, corporate success doesn't equal evil doing in everything the company accomplishes. Stay objective, demand reputable, repeatable evidence. Demand peer review. Demand solid proof before making up your mind instead of relying on the phrase, "it just makes sense that..."
    More, louder, yes, just like that!!

    The FDA tested grains and found that fair amounts of glyphosate (the active ingredient found in RoundUp) were making their way into the final grains that are being used in foods including cereals.

    The tests were duplicated by a non-profit (called the Environmental Working Group) with a result that 48 of 61 samples tested positive for glyphosate.

    Glyphosate can be found in many herbicides. It was brought to market by Monsanto in 1974. Their patent expired in 2000.

    If you read various studies and reports then you find that the testing results linking it to cancer and other issues is mixed and can be contradictory.
