Unmasking The GMO Humanitarian Narrative

Genetically modified (GM) crops are going to feed the world. Not only that, supporters of GM technology say it will produce better yields than non-GM crops, increase farmers’ incomes, lead to less chemical inputs, be better suited to climatic changes, is safe for human consumption and will save the lives of millions. Sections of the pro-GMO lobby are modern-day evangelists who denounce, often with a hefty dose of bigoted zeal, anyone who questions their claims and self-proclaimed humanitarian motives.

The apparent betrayal of German national interests by Chancellor Angela Merkel is not only evident over the recent industrial spying scandal on behalf of America, the slavish pursuit by Merkel of Washington’s anti-Russian policy over Ukraine — in contradistinction to her country’s national interests — also cogently suggests that the chancellor is serving a foreign master.

No patch for remote code-execution bug in D-Link and Trendnet routers

Home and small-office routers from manufacturers including Trendnet and D-Link are vulnerable to attacks that allow attackers anywhere in the world to execute malicious code on the devices, according to an advisory issued over the weekend.

The remote command-injection bug affects routers that were developed using the RealTek software development kit. That includes routers from Trendnet and D-Link, according to the developer who discovered the vulnerability. There's no comprehensive list of manufacturers or models that are affected, though more technical users may be able to spot them by using the Metasploit framework to query their router. If the response contains "RealTek/v1.3" or similar, it's likely vulnerable.
