(NaturalNews) Corporate #gaywashing is becoming so absurd and insulting to the LGBT community that it deserves serious comment. Frito-Lay has just introduced “Rainbow Doritos” which pander to gays and lesbians, insulting their intelligence by hoping they will blindly eat genetically modified corn chips laced with MSG and chemical colors just because it’s all packaged under the “rainbow banner.”
The link between the Internet of Things (IOT) and privacy is worthy of consideration. IOT is a double edged sword when looking at its benefits versus the level of data that is collected, and therefore its potential for encroaching on privacy. A few considerations are central to the debate.
Firstly unknowing privacy infringement using technology is not a new thing. The rise of the social networks (and primarily Facebook) marked the first time that individuals started happily handing over data. Photos, comments, their location and data about their personal lives, is now willingly offered up for sharing, but it’s astonishing how few Facebook users realise the network is really only after their data and keeping them on the to deliver increasing amounts of targeted advertising.

The year 2015 hasn’t been kind to Monsanto. In March, the World Health Organization declared that the company’s flagship product, its herbicide glyphosate or Roundup, is a probable human carcinogen. Increasingly, national health ministries are taking a hard second look at glyphosate’s health and environmental dangers and efforts are underway to ban the herbicide. To protect its citizens, last year the Netherlands, Bermuda and Sri Lanka have either banned or imposed strict limits on Roundup. Last June, France banned its use in gardens. Brazil, Germany and Argentina are considering legislative bans. And this month, California’s environmental protection agency launched plans to label Roundup as a carcinogen.
Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world today. Over 130 countries currently permit extensive use of the chemical. The US is the largest consumer, using approximately 20% of the world’s Roundup. The latest reliable figures from the US Geological Survey record 280 million pounds of Roundup were used in 2012, nearly a pound for every American. In 2013, gross profit of $371 million on crop chemicals including Roundup climbed 73% due to a 37% increase in sales. That same year Monsanto’s net income rose 22% to $1.48 billion.
