The UN Food and Agriculture Organization is now looking at insects as a new food source. Over 2 billion people supplement their diets with insects which are high in protein and minerals. They say the feeding of insects is cheaper than cattle and other meats and can be farmed in large numbers. Ham Radio Expert Brent Scott will be our featured guest at the top of the hour. In the event solar flares or other disasters knock our power grids down this could be our only source of communication. Call ins are welcome.
Agro-chemicals are used to combat a problem with plants and insects that devastate crops. However, there is an emerging resistance of super weeds and now, super insects. More chemicals mean more destruction but what exactly are the alternatives? Could this also be a push for a new breed of agro-technology? In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and Tom Theobald will talk to Dr. Charles Benbrook, about the emerging resista
There are many reasons people grow a vegetable garden. Price inflation is one, but the main reason is more people want to know what they are eating.

In the world of beekeeping, neonicotinoids have maintained the spotlight as the scientific evidence continues to grow regarding the decline of the world's bee population. Neonicotinoids are defined by the EPA as a class of insecticides with a common mode of action that affects the central nervous system of insects, causing paralysis and death. All of the neonicotinoids were registered after 1984 and were not subject to reregistration. Some uncertainties have been identified since their initial registration regarding the potential environmental fate and effects of neonicotinoid pesticides, particularly as they relate to pollinators. Data suggests that neonicotinic residues can accumulate in pollen and nectar of treated plants and may represent a potential exposure to pollinators. Adverse effects data as well as beekill incidents have also been reported, highlighting the potential direct and/or indirect effects of neonicotinic pesticides. Therefore, among other refinements to ecological risk assessment during registration review, the Agency will consider potential effects of the neonicotinoids to honeybees and other pollinating insects. Dr. David Goulson, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sterling and his team have conducted new research titled “Neonicotinoid pesticide reduces bumble bee colony growth and queen production.” In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and special co- host, Tom Theobald will be joined today by Dr. David Goulson, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sterling to discuss his research.

FEAR...unpleasant emotion caused by expectation or awareness of danger.
FEAR...is a basic instinct in every creature. Humans, animals, insects, birds, and the marine family all have FEAR in common. How we handle fear is relative. FEAR in humans tells us to wake-up, pay attention and/or fight or flee.
ANIMALs either fight or flee...INSECTS stop cold and pretend their dead...BIRDS soar to higher ground or fly away with greater speed...FISH just swim away, smile!

Humans have a higher form...etc.
