Thank you to N.G. Jayasimha, H.S.I., for this information.

World’s Largest Food Company Aims to Overhaul Chicken, Pig and Cow Treatment throughout Supply Chain

MUMBAI, India (21 Aug. 2014)–Nestlé–the world’s largest food company and makers of iconic brands–such as Nestlé Milkmaid and MAGGI–announced<> an industry-leading animal welfare program that will eliminate several controversial yet standard practices within its global supply system.

Particularly, Nestlé’s new policy states that it will eliminate practices like confining pigs in gestation crates, calves in veal crates and egg-laying hens in cages; the forced rapid growth of chickens used for meat products; and cutting the horns, tails and genitals off farm animals without painkiller.

Humane Society International applauded the announcement.

“We thank Nestle for taking a stand against inhumane factory farming practices,” said N.G. Jayasimha, director of HSI India. “Cruelly confining animals in cages for their entire lives, castrating or removing their tails or…

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is preparing to issue regulations to crack down on the skyrocketing trade in elephant ivory, which led to the deaths of more than 30,000 elephants in 2012. But special interest groups like the NRA are fighting to weaken or delay those rules. Urge President Obama and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to stand strong and propose tough protections right now that will rein in the U.S. ivory market — the second largest in the world — and save elephants from extinction.

Nestle/Gerber Won’t Listen: Boycott the Company Who Puts GMO Bt Toxins in Baby Food


via Nestle/Gerber Won’t Listen: Boycott the Company Who Puts GMO Bt Toxins in Baby Food | NationofChange.

Like many food producers supplying some of the most popular foods, some baby food companies, such as Purity Brands, are going GMO-free due to public demand. But other companies stuffed with the hot air of their own inflated CEO’s egos refuse – Nestlé International, the parent company of both Nestlé USA and Gerber baby foods – is adamant about using GMOs in their products. It looks like it’s time for another boycott.

Many parents in the U.S. and North America are unknowingly feeding their infants and small children Gerber Baby Foods which contain genetically modified corn and soy, both of which contain Bt toxins, a registered pesticide with the USFDA.

I am Mad as Hell and I’m Not Going to Take it Anymore!

Oil Pastels by Mary

Mad?  Oh yes I am and beyond any words that I can express here.  Discouraged?  Totally of people’s lack of moral judgement, inner-compass of values and code of conduct.  Disappointed?  Yes – I’m totally disappointed, that there are people out there who think they can take what is not theirs and what?  Make money?  Or draw traffic to their website?   Why all in the name of getting known?  No it’s more than that . . .

I’m calling you out right here and now:

Last week completely by chance I discovered that these two sites/companies confiscated images of several of my paintings and have placed their identity as the authors of my work.  Are you serious?!  Doing a search on Google, Dogpile, Yahoo, etc. of “oil pastel seascapes” I found several of my paintings with these two companies as the owner – OH NO YOU DON’T!

USA: Major Breaking News 21/8/14 – ‘Mercy For Animals’ – Because of your support, we have secured a major victory for animals! – Nestle Introduce Massive Welfare Changes.

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)


SAV Comment:  If every day was as good a news bringer as this; there would be many more good days !! – Congratulations to our friends at MFA – job well done !



Because of your support, we have secured a major victory for animals!

Nestle, the largest food company in the world, has just announced perhaps the single largest and most sweeping corporate animal welfare policy change in history!

The announcement follows a Mercy For Animals undercover investigation late last year that revealed shocking cruelty at a Wisconsin dairy factory farm supplier for DiGiorno Pizza, a Nestle company.

MFA’s undercover footage showed workers kicking, beating, and stabbing cows, and cows who were too sick or injured to stand being callously tortured and dragged by their fragile legs and necks with a chain attached to a tractor.

You helped us push for convictions of four workers charged with…

Rotweiller with breast tumour left to die…



Another awful case of animal abuse and neglect in Bosnia Herzegovina. Dalida Kozlic saved this female rottweiler in Visoko today. The poor dog was wading in a river to try and cool herself, most likely to relieve the pain of the huge tumour hanging from her.

10599595_10203574287231393_5609431378958538596_nWhile she was standing in the water, Dalida called out to her, the dog came over and Dalida was able to put a collar on and put the dog into her car.

This dog has a breast tumour, fleas all over and many wounds on her body. Her health condition is very, very poor. Dalida brought her to a vet and the dog was treated for internal and external parasites. As soon as she gets stronger, she will be operated on. She will be placed in the vet’s pension.

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
