When I was born I was given a ball.
The ball was green and blue.
My mom said, "Share and take good care,
it belongs to others too.

"Keep it clean, keep the green part green,
Try to make the blue parts bluer.
If you live this ball it will never grow old.
In fact, it might grow newer."

So I did all that and I did some more
Cuz I love this ball a lot.

And I hope that you will love it too...'s the only ball we've got !

Court: Vaccines Don't Cause Autism
By Jon Hamilton - NPR
March 12, 2010

The nation's "vaccine court" has once again concluded that vaccines don't cause autism.

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims has rejected claims in three test cases that tried to show that vaccines preserved with thimerosal contributed to the development of autism.

The ruling comes a year after the same court rejected the claims of three other test cases. In those cases, experts failed to convince the court that the combined effects of the MMR vaccine and thimerosal caused autism.

Thimerosal contains mercury, which can affect brain development if kids are exposed to large amounts.

But vaccines preserved with thimerosal contain only tiny amounts of mercury. And numerous studies from around the world have found no evidence that autism is more common in kids exposed to thimerosal through vaccines.

The court's decision got a warm welcome from groups that support childhood vaccination, as well as some autism groups.

"We all feel for the families," said Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation. "But we can't lose sight of the science."

It's time to stop trying to blame vaccines for autism and invest in research that could lead to the real cause, Singer said.

If the court's decision holds up, it will mean that children with autism are not eligible for payments from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Currently there are claims to the program on behalf of thousands of children.

But the court battle isn't over yet. The petitioners to the so-called vaccine court can still ask for a review of the decision and appeal it to higher courts.

And they can still sue vaccine makers directly.

"It is an interesting and demonstrable fact, that all children are atheists and were religion not inculcated into their minds, they would remain so."

Dirty Diapers Transformed into Diesel

Disposable diapers pile up in landfills fast, to the tune of 21 billion annually in the US alone. While many more parents are beginning to choose cloth and other alternatives, a Quebec company called AMEC has come up with an innovative way to deal with a good chunk of the disposables that would otherwise end up in the trash: turning them into diesel fuel. It can be done through a process called pyrolysis, which involves heating the diapers up in an enclosed, controlled environment. AMEC expects to gain about 11,000 tons of diesel fuel from the first 30,000 diapers converted. Due to the closed system, there are no emissions and experts say as the process improves, it could very well become an economically viable form of fuel.

Uh Oh Cheerios Causes Rainforest Destruction

Cheerios may be good for your heart, but not so good for the world's rainforests, communities and the climate.

Cheerios, and other favorite General Mills cereals like Trix, Lucky Charms and Wheaties, contain palm oil-derived ingredients grown on plantations that destroy rainforests in Southeast Asia.

The Facts

*Over 100 General Mills products contain palm oil or palm oil derivatives

*Approximately 85 percent of palm oil is grown on industrial plantations that eradicate the homes and livelihoods of local people

*Palm oil plantations threaten highly endangered species like orangutans, Sumatran tigers and elephants

*Deforestation causes climate change by producing 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions

*General Mills markets its products primarily to parents and children, dragging them unknowingly into this chain of destruction

"I'm 60 Feet Underground"

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child protects children. Only two nations in the world have yet to join the global community in ratifying this agreement: Somalia and the United States. Urge President Obama and Congress to ratify the convention without delay.
