cereal trisodium crop 263x164 FDA Approved: Paint Thinner in Children’s CerealsThe challenge to be informed about what we are eating grows ever more complex. Many people trust Trader Joe’s as one of the smaller grocery store chains offering higher quality foods without unnecessary additives, and other harmful ingredients that can cause cancer, neurological damage, or developmental delays. But one mom recently found trisodium phosphate, an industrial strength paint thinner in her children’s Trader Joe’s breakfast cereal, and she is wondering what it is doing there. (The ingredient is found in other popular cereals as well).

Trisodium phosphate, otherwise known as trisodium orthophosphate, sodium phosphate, or TSP, is well known by construction workers, DIYers, and developers, but not to most parents shopping for their morning meal. It is an inorganic phosphate which can be detrimental to our health. It is often used in place of mineral spirits to remove…

Documentary : Know Antarctica



Antarctica is Earth‘s southernmost continent, containing the geographic South Pole. It is situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle, and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. At 14.0 million km2(5.4 million sq mi), it is the fifth-largest continent in area after AsiaAfricaNorth America, and South America. For comparison, Antarctica is nearly twice the size of Australia. About 98% of Antarctica is covered by ice that averages at least 1.9 kilometres (1.2 mi) in thickness, which extends to all but the northernmost reaches of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Antarctica, on average, is the coldest, driest, and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. Antarctica is considered a desert, with annual precipitation of only 200 mm (8 inches) along the coast and far less inland. The temperature in Antarctica has…

20 Secret Rooms That Bring Fantasy Into Everyday Life

From the time we first read “Alice in Wonderland” or see our first spy movie with secret panic rooms or ghostly castles, we imagine secret rooms to be something remarkable, mystical and ultimately unachievable. However, secret rooms and passages can also be found in the privacy of our neighbours’ houses – even today.

Secret rooms nowadays are a lot more about entertainment and having something private for yourself. Moving bookcases, secret doors under the stairs or private portals in your own closet – with enough imagination, secret rooms can be situated almost anywhere. They can be a little oasis of privacy, fun or fantasy right in your own home.

Homeless veteran ‘baked to death’ in New York prison cell.

The Truth is Where?

• City officials say cell had overheated to at least 100 degrees

Jerome Murdough was just looking for a warm place to sleep on a chilly night last month when he curled up in an enclosed stairwell on the roof of a Harlem public housing project where he was arrested for trespassing.

A week later, the mentally ill homeless man was found dead in a Rikers Island jail cell that four city officials say had overheated to at least 100 degrees, apparently because of malfunctioning equipment.

The officials told the Associated Press that the 56-year-old former marine was on anti-psychotic and anti-seizure medication, which may have made him more vulnerable to heat. He also apparently did not open…

Video: Former Wild Mustang and Two Year Old Demonstrate Equine/Human Bond

Straight from the Horse's Heart

by R.T. Fitch ~ pres/co-founder of Wild Horse Freedom Federation

It’s “Feel Good Sunday” and as our readers have come to expect; we comb the internet for something horsey that is uplifting, cheering and hopefully, enlightening to share. 

Thanks to a regular and observant reader we were forwarded a video of 2 year Emma Dunn walking her good friend, Cinnamon, on a snowy walk across their Colorado ranch.

Emma’s proud dad, Justin Dunn, is a horse trainer who specializes in teaching horsemanship to children and disabled individuals.  It rather looks as if he got an early start with little Emma.

On Justin’s Facebook page the proud father wrote, “These two had and still have a special bond. Cinnamon Girl LOVES her Emma.”

It’s obvious that the feeling is mutual.

Shades of gray: can Wolves and Humans live together

Mavadelo's mindscape

Gray wolves once ranged across North America. But by the 1930s, they were nearly extinct — trapped, poisoned and hunted by ranchers, farmers, and government agents. With protection under the 1973 Endangered Species Act, the wolf population rebounded. But wolves lost federal protection in 2011.

Now, with hunting permitted in many Western states, the future of this once endangered species may again be in question. Can we live with wolves? Earth Focus travels to Montana and Wyoming to find out.

So one of the reasons that people are afraid of wolves is because the fear for attacks on livestock and/or Humans. How well founded is this fear? let’s take a look at the facts, shall we?

I guess many Americans will be familiar with Politifact and the Oregon section had the following on fatal wolf attacks on Humans in the Rocky Mountain states

In a recent article in The Oregonian, Michelle…

Urgent help needed for abused chihuahua with no teeth

Family Survival Protocol - Microcosm News

At first glance, rescuers thought they were dealing with an aged chihuahua who had lost his teeth because of neglect. Tragically, the pooch has been rushed to the veterinarian on Saturday evening; his rescuers state this dog is less than two-years-old.

Rescuers believed tiny little Nemo has been badly abused and his teeth have been knocked out.

“Only a monster would knock the teeth out of a helpless little chihuahua,” stated Kathleen Godwin of Ithaca, New York. “It’s beyond horrible to think of what this poor little one must have suffered and the pain he must be in now.”

Animal Rescue Stories : Video showing Romania dog grateful for being rescued from canal

Family Survival Protocol - Microcosm News

Read and view the heartwarming story of a dog grateful to his rescuers.
YouTube video screenshot
March 27, 2014

If you have ever doubted that dogs can show gratitude, a video went viral this week from Romania which showed a dog rescued from an icy waterway purely ecstatic with his human rescuers, reported Thursday’s edition of Neatorama.com.

The video shows a shepherd type mix trapped in the Somesul Mic River in the city of Cluj. The scared dog desperately tried to scratch and climb his way out of the icy water; a concrete wall stood in his way. No one knows how long the poor canine had been in the canal.

Two Good Samaritans saw the dog and climbed into the water to rescue him. As one man helped the dog onto the concrete slab, and tried to encourage the dog to finish the rescue endeavor by moving toward the shore, the dog froze with fear and…

PETA Petition: Horse Racing’s Daily Double: Drugs And Death – PETA Undercover Investigation


“I am seriously shocked & disgusted at the following painful treatments these poor horses have to endure. A horse, forced to run with a makeshift super glued hoof; later had to be killed! Please watch the video & read on screen or listen to how trainers, vets  or owners talk about their horses…the sick POS need putting down; not the horses! I am furious & sickened by what PETA documented. If you love animals; Please DO NOT BET ON any RACE HORSE either in the US or UK!!”

“PLEASE TAKE ACTION at the link  BELOW; please don’t let them suffer!”

Imagine being forced to run, being pushed beyond the breaking point, the bones in your legs straining to hold up the weight of your body, your bleeding lungs incapable of breathing in enough air, and forced to keep running in spite of it all.

This is what life is like for…

PLYMOUTH TOWN MEETING: Petitioned article aims to ban wild animal circuses


Frank Mand Old Colony Memorial Posted Mar. 26, 2014 @ 4:00 pm 
Put yourself in their shoes or, rather, in their cages, Kati Carloni says.

Wild and exotic animals that are part of travelling circuses often spend 10 or 11 months a year living in trailers or boxcars, their movement limited further by chains, brought out once or twice a day for exercise or to perform tricks.

It’s easy to imagine what it would be like, Carloni says. Simply think of a prisoner doing life without parole.

Not surprisingly Carloni’s name is the one attached to an article placed – by petition – on the warrant of the April 5 spring Town Meeting – an article that, if passed, would ban traveling circuses that display wild or exotic animals from putting up their tents within the town’s boundaries.

She admits that this is a personal issue, that she has…

A lifetime behind bars, the dog that nobody wants

Family Survival Protocol - Microcosm News

Bentley, the unwanted dog

Meet Bentley, the three-year-old dog that nobody wants.

When Bentley was just a pup, he was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Nassau County in Long Island, N.Y.

Bentley was one of a litter of pups surrendered that day, so many years ago – his siblings found homes, but he never was adopted.

Today, the now adult dog, continues to wait, and hope that at some point, someone might want to call him their own.

Condemn Repeated Animal Abuse By Animal Planet! Petition!

Ann Novek( Luure)--With the Sky as the Ceiling and the Heart Outdoors

Posted by Amy ParsonsUnknown
Target: Marjorie Kaplan, Group President of Animal Planet, Science Channel & Velocity

Goal: Urge Animal Planet to stop illegally importing and abusing coyotes

The trapping of an innocent animal who was not posing a threat to humans or the community, the transport of that animal in an insufficiently sized cage, and the abuse of that animal for television is not only immoral, it is also illegal. However, that is exactly what Animal Planet did to an unsuspecting coyote for the sake of their show, Call of the Wildman. While Animal Planet’s loose interpretation of animal welfare, abuse, and neglect are well documented; this incident represents a step further in their disregard for the creatures they show on television. Marjorie Kaplan, the president of Animal Planet, has the power to make sure every show on her network treats animals with the respect they deserve. She should…
