Agent Orange is a chemical that was used extensively by the United States during the Vietnam War to destroy vast areas of jungle.

It can result in a number of serious side effects for those exposed to the chemical for prolonged periods of time; this includes birth defects and even death.

Now, it has been revealed that Agent Orange was used on vegetation in Canada's Ontario province from the 1950s to the 1970s.

This has prompted the Canadian government to open an investigation into the use of the chemical.

Genetic modification of our food. Is it a good idea?

Short answer: It could be, if it's done right. It could also be a very bad idea if it's done wrong.

There is one instance where a transgene was observed to cross into wild plants. This occurred between very closely related grass species.

‎"I am shocked. It's upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people. I do not find any humor in this. It is insulting and hurtful," said Naomi.

Fred Silberberg: Brother of a Different Mother

Fred Silberberg: Brother of a Different Mother

Much attention has been given in the last two weeks to the disclosure that former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with the family's housekeeper, and kept that information a secret from his now-estranged wife, Maria Shriver. Most of the focus in regard to this story has been about the impact of the disclosure on Schwarzenegger's family with Maria. One can only imagine how shocking it had to be, not only to Maria, but also to the children, to learn that all of this time both Schwarzenegger and the housekeeper kept the fact of the boy's parentage a secret from Schwarzenegger's family. There has also been attention placed on the fact that the child born of the housekeeper, Mildred Baena, is almost exactly the same age as Schwarzenegger's youngest son. These two boys grew up simultaneously, not knowing that they were related. What has not been given much attention in the media, however, are the financial implications of this situation as they concern child support and the question of whether Baena has relinquished large amounts of child support that her son is entitled to the benefit of.
