The gold market has been where the action is for investors lately. As a neurotic stock market and the European debt crisis spur predictions of a global financial meltdown, a vault full of gold is like a dose of Valium for stressed out investors. Investors fear continued to drive stocks lower when the spot gold price began at a lot more than $ 1,200 per ounce on Wednesday. Gold is wanted by European investors and banks as the Euro tanks and also the dollar flutters. Investment gurus like Richard Russell are telling individuals to stay away from the stock market and buy gold stocks instead.

Fluoride is what city hall calls it, and lobbyists wouldn't blame them . Who wants to hear the real truth of what it is, or rather what it isn't? It is not a pharmaceutical grade or organic fluoride such as that found naturally in Toronto's well water. Rather, an inorganic fluoride is laced in an industrial waste pollutant called HEXAFLUOROSILICIC ACID (HFSA). It is derived by brushing off the phosphate stalks from the phosphate fertilizer industry. We get our supply from Florida. For every 40,000 ton truck load that comes into Toronto's water treatment plants, up to 8lbs of LEAD and 2 lbs of ARSENIC come along with it. It costs YOU, the tax payer anywhere from $420.7 million to $760.5 million over a ten year period. This would be composed of:
The luxury (and make no mistake, it is born of privilege) of a quarter-life crisis or simply a period in one's twenties where you're unsure of how you will earn a living for the next 30 or 40 years is not equally afforded to women of child-bearing years and child-bearing inclination. While advances in birth control have given us unprecedented control over our reproductive lives, we still haven't come to the point were we can outsmart mother nature on a mass scale. Women have only a finite period in which to get pregnant and give birth to children without (barring existing fertility issues) medical intervention and these years typically coincide with the time during which we're attempting to launch and establish our careers. This is reality, people.
Some of rabble's staff spent the week-end poring through federal court documents in the upcoming court date on the George Galloway ban from Canada (The court date is April 26th)

Avatar's Missed Opportunity
March 9, 2010 / By Krystalline Kraus
The movie Avatar might empower indigenous people to rise up and defend the earth but it does nothing to empower people with dis/abilities.
Check it out and vote. I won't say who I voted for so as not to influence things, because hell, I know how much freakin' influence I have around here.
