Here are two statistics that are interesting on their own but scary together: 40% of the world's population relies on fish for food, but every year, 7 million tons of dead fish are tossed back into the ocean because they were too young (i.e., small) to be marketable, or simply because they weren't the species the fishermen were after. These factoids come from a video promoting a product designed to solve these problems called SafetyNet. It's an industrial fish-trawling net with a few redesigned elements to ameliorate the unsustainable fishing practices described above.
I received an email recently that claims Wal-Mart senior management has been calling mandatory meetings for the company's employees in which the employees are told they "cannot" vote for the Obama-Biden ticket "or any other employee-friendly, union-friendly candidates for political office". It's not an urban legend, according to the sources I checked.
This makes me so angry I just boil. When it comes to the Constitution, I am a rabid supporter.
