WRSR – How the Vehicle Manufacturing Works



hello comrades its premier River and I am back at the river stand Motor Speedway it's not a voter Speedway it's a motor producing speed test way how's that sound in any event I have set up a little bit of an experiment here you know I've been playing the game quite a bit have a lot of hours into it and I've never done the automotive so I had set up in my regular series a bit of a test or you know set up a manufacturing and got different comments one was that I didn't that you have to put materials in in specific places so I'm not sure if that's true or not but this is our motor vehicle production and I just sort of stuck things wherever I thought they'd fit with no intention because another comment I got was well you don't have to worry about where you stick things in they'll just go in so we're gonna find that out first I think what I've done let me go through the whole setup here here we first before we go through the whole setup let's go over you have to purchase cars now I'm on easy mode like super unlimited money sandbox mode I think that'll be good enough this isn't about making money this is just about learning how the car manufacturing goes so apparently we can you know we can manufacture any of these vehicles personal car though let's pick a cool-looking one how about this one 38,000 all right so I assume that means we can then start producing that right there we go in vehicle in production how can we do more than one let's pick a red f1 25 right let's just say can we now it sounds like we can only do one at a time which is fine let's do the black one first then one more question answered right so you can gather that you know I don't know all the answers I you know obviously very familiar with how things generally work so I can make a lot of good assumptions but you know where assumptions tend to get you so here's the setup we have this town and I have two trains going back and forth and I should have it there's 400 workers maximum oh we need engineers hmm well the good news is you know we can we can't really get rid of people – well we should have a few engineers anyway let's see how that goes i didn't even I'm assuming they need to be the educated folks and we should have educated folks throughout the thing here now I do have yeah you know what there's nobody in here you know let's get let's get one house that's they're all set to go there but let's get one of these houses where we let's clear this house out and we'll get one house with just all nothing but educated kind of people in there not this one this one all right just to make sure we have enough of that we should have enough we got eight eight houses total which would be 1600 which even if we have three shifts at 400 that should be enough all right so those guys will leave eventually because they won't get too happy these guys should have everything they need here all but this house I left not specified so that they can go work here all of the buildings should be purchasing what they need so people should stay happy and I also over here just to kind of simulate bringing things in and out just to kind of get some idea of you know is this number of trucks you know how many trucks do you need coming in and out of here to keep up probably more than this but I'm okay with that – right this is not some maximum efficiency test you can obviously make some you know judgment calls now I also did this because I want to see if if they'll flow through here right like if we fill this one up with cars will it come up to this one in this one that makes sense now we can also just go right in there and get cars and then I have this whole other town where I've set it up where they have a few parking lots the different sized parking lots right these people have no way of getting there unless they get cars and then if we look at at least this slot anyway so they can make it over there can they make it over there from like the little lot they might not be able to about this one yes so see I'm curious to see if these people start just going over there right it eventually will get them some cars now another thing is I'm curious to see if we can use the road depot to get cars to here I'm out you know this is the regular car overflow lot or do we just drive the cars and put them in the car dealership right and again it's I like to use these because if you have multiple trucks you don't fill up your waiting spaces so we'll see we'll see so let's start playing time and see what happens well at least get the thing running right now we don't have any people now another thing I want to point out was that it's a little bit deceiving when you go to buy the train sets right so I was wrong earlier believe it or not I know it's hard to believe for the people that follow my series that I might have been wrong but when you buy the train set let's go over to the depot and come over here to purchase right and we'll come to trainset look how it says like it points at this right this is ones we bought it says 105 however when I actually bought the train said and there was two of them there right like so I bought two of them and then stuck them back to back in here like this there we go see like it doesn't look like you can do that but then you can go and like stick them together and they act like one train if you didn't know that but it's actually you know this guy will hold just as many so this is definitely cheaper so I'm sorry about that if I misled anyone this each one of these cars holds 105 which i think is a little deceiving the way they did it but in any event we have a train set there are we getting a few people in here no why are we not getting any workers definitely get in and out load and unload we don't need students right we have people on the platform number of workers waiting let's specify that they should go 200 okay sup sup sup yeah there's always something when you put this together why don't we attach this with an actual fancy Road some of that by the way I crashed a lot of times a lot of times trying to do this especially when I was putting down these tracks so and I know I'd already built this at one point so is it because because they have no place to go specify where citizens think is best well this would be we do that right so we can't even get the basics right well we've got a lot of people over there waiting don't take any students there we go so that was it you need to actually be good it's good that they're smart enough to know that they couldn't get out the other end right now how are we doing on supplies here now we have a supply issue where you go it you have eight tons of that okay well we should have the stuff you know at least marginally attached here right though I don't see it in there which is kind of a thing with this game in these these warehouses so there we go look oh man look at all those people that's a lot of people alright we've got a lot of engineers current production yet we are making a car so let's make sure yeah I don't think we're gonna keep up with our we're operating with that issue but I don't think we're gonna keep up necessarily with our with these few trucks but that's okay that's all part of the test right and we can always double the trucks up while we're sitting here running around looking at it all right so we're with our trucks our cars will come out here right I would assume least I hope they go out to there now if they don't they're gonna come into here now does it say you have finished vehicles there we go we've made a car and it didn't automatically go into here yeah I don't really oh there it is okay there's our car all right well now let's see I want to just see if we come over to our Road Depot and I'm assuming we would need an open halt right so let's go ahead and get an open halt and I want to say go to here and pick up vehicles we don't have a road cargo station attack directly to this but that's okay so then let's to go ahead and test this right so I don't want you to load anything I just want you to load cars then we will keep an eye on this guy yeah there he goes so this I expect this test to take a little while I don't know you know we're already 10 minutes into the video I don't know how long exactly it will take and we have four spots here so I don't know that we need this but I'm curious for like we'll let this guy overflow now how much does each one of these weigh I want you to wait yep good suck them right out of there so the good news is I'm sure we can get him out of here too but yeah so how many I guess he could just keep loading them up right it doesn't look like he could carry any more let's just see what happens with that as we produce more cars right we're still operating with that issue so you know we're doing pretty well with just these few few trucks doing their thing now they might have had a little bit of a head start so I don't want to get too excited at this moment about why don't we just for the sake switch him to go into here just so they don't call the traffic jam in the long run okay here he goes where is he going oh that's right he's got to go this way you know what we could probably use let's I love having all the money in the world it's it's pretty nice yeah let's let's auto-transfuse so you know that's not part of the problem good so we're producing cars now let's see can we actually dropped them off over here very curious to see if this works that way he's headin in there but they do head there for yes good road cargo station works now look their groups a couple people are they buying cars now I'm curious to see if they'll buy cars and then go to work yep there they go I think okay there he goes she's gonna go to park at his parking lot yeah you know I don't know where they live so we're gonna take a little time here okay now this is our truck now I just want to see let's switch where this guy goes that's a I want you to drop off here and just make sure though I'm reasonably certain this this is gonna work all right so go get some more cars and then bring them back and drop them off in here so how many cars we made in the mean time three right yep yeah so this going pretty well kind of as expected at this point you know as far as you mean I don't see where any particular thing would have to go in any particular place right so now another thing that I want to try to do here next will be I know we can attach this directly to there right well but we can't like you can't get this doesn't have any railroad connection this space for vehicles which would be nice if they did and there's no rail connection to here so after we kind of prove that this will fill the dealer up with cars I want to then come over here and send him to go to here to see to see if he'll the train will then start loading up cars right so it's a little bit backwards there unload load but you know he is wait yeah so well then we'll see if he waits for that now we're getting a little behind on cars which is good what are you doing tell me there's no power it seems like the story of my life all right let's uh I got I got all kinds of look it's right over there you know all right let's uh come here that's gonna be a little bit awkwardly close to that other thing let's just come out here they're good it's not not at a bad angle right yep you have power so you should have power so you're gonna fill back up very good and then yours on his way did you actually get fuel yes good yeah we're making cars in a pretty good clip actually like as far as I mean we're 300 people right you're not gonna I mean you could do better but you you're hard pressed to a whole lot better than this little setup would right I mean we're definitely true you know coming close I would hope to maxing out the number of people you could you could produce or get cars to go so why don't we get another open halt since we do have some extra get another open halt close that but that's okay we click here so I want you to you know what can you come from here and then just to see if that loading through there would work right so in other words he's gonna try to pick up from this furthest one and I want to make sure that he actually can you know wait wait for your vehicles now how are we doing as far as like look yeah look they're driving over there up there they are yet they're going over to work in the UH in the factory yep there he goes it's not the most efficient way of moving people around but you know it is a way of moving people around and it's certainly good for things like if you have a concrete plant or something that's just really little right so how are we doing yeah this is what I was afraid of yeah so it won't load through those I'm okay with that I kind of didn't think it would right because in other situations I've had the same problem all right so let's let's add a new you see quite as well come to here you know what now you know I could go to here week that cars right now where you're going back okay that's right he keeps faking me out cuz I'm thinking he's going this way but the road yeah okay these people came back from we just have more people who bought cars I see so did we miss a trip and this is actually working just like I expected it probably would let's let's switch over to some red cars now here's a question do we lose all that progress yes so you might want to finish a car now I don't know if you lose the materials or not but you might want to finish a car out before you before you click that button yeah so we should see these guys come right on into there yep yeah so it just takes it a second but they do get sucked into there now the our people are off driving their cars and there's our shiny new red car nice now the other thing that's pretty interesting about this then I didn't really everybody keeps talking about oh you can get cars cars cars cars I think it's pretty cool that we can get other stuff cuz you know my map some of this other you know in the regular series this stuff is expensive as all get out to buy a new dumper right let's see can we get the license for a KMZ dumper and then what happens with that do we just I guess we could just select it and send it over to a Depot or there you go we're loading up more cars now does the train have some cars on it yet yes there they are it's hard to see we should have done the red cars but if you guys can see but we have black cars on the train and so the trains first thing is going to be let's see which what are you building is without power supply saying story of my life yes we're gonna try to see if we can't unload at a train station right into a car dealership but we need to get some power I think so let's yeah that should cover everybody on this side who's not already covered and where is well it's just it's all free ish those are no that's not you come you know like that come over to here good so we got ahead of that one a little bit all right so now yeah we definitely have plenty of buyers and sellers but we don't have any so I'm also trying to get an idea with all of this like you know the speed with which things happen as far as the loading so how full are we doesn't really tell you a percentage does it so I guess it uh it looks like each one can hold four which is pretty each one of that that one holds three yeah and then in a second here I want to just send them what I make do is just run it for a little while and look at that very nice we can give you a footpath hopefully we don't crash the game right let's give you guys some back door foot pads right so they can get around to their parking spots a little bit easier probably could close one of the eight windows there you got a little faster way to the catch there that's right we got flip pass throughout although they don't really like when they built when you build the fancy roads they don't really need too many extra footpaths that time we got four cards on there okay yep this guy's going over here to pick up the cars still have good workers so you know eight houses here yeah like CA we're getting all the way up almost a four hundred I don't see how we're gonna do too much better than that how are we doing running out of materials yet these guys aren't waiting so you definitely we're producing I like all right so let's take we're quite confident that this is working either every which way right let me that guy's already dope let's come over here and I just want to take all of them to this stop right and that is this yes yeah so now we'll just take all the all the cars over and then that way we'll fill this train up and we can see if that goes now of course if you guys have any other questions let me know but I mean I think we're simulating pretty well how the cars will work and like I said what I may do is just let it play for a while and just you know show you guys when it fills all up with cars and what the people are doing with them and just in case you haven't experimented like myself yeah well we already know this works right yeah because we've already done this and there's no way to I think I meant to I don't know I guess if this didn't work I could do this just to get some cars over here like there's no other way to get cars to these people but they already had the Train so this was sort of a whole secondary thing until I thought about yeah let's just see you know kind of two separate ways of getting you know vehicles to the two different place like here we're supplying them by truck and then here will supply them by train so the only real negative thing is that there's no way to directly get cars from the factory right onto the train you have to truck them over to here see how many do we have I might be able to hold more we're gonna find out right I think this does it tell me now it shows me how many there's we got 15 so far it comes another truck load yeah so this is definitely the way to move them I'm still not full parent cargo value only 30 what did these cars worth doesn't really say what they're worth click on here does it this is not the purchasing price and we could sort of questioning that that price right let's go to cars like in other words doesn't it seem like it should be more than 30 mm well these guys are only worth 1,400 that's what it is and I'm gonna beat this one yeah mm okay that's about right especially considering a lot of them are now the red ones nice people going to work already now I guess we should have the sky yeah you know what wait to unload just in case I'm I will just set them on cars nothing matters wait to load wait to unload moving yet now you hold quite a few cars now there's five on each so for this one these guys are both getting back at the same time you snot set the way head back there a sense of you being empty well you get another car on is that why you're waiting so it looks like now okay he just decided to wait a little extra while I guess so if he did the visuals at all accurate we should load one more car so I guess we should have this guy wait – for what the Train is gone now they just keep getting smaller like keep shoving them on and keep getting smaller which is okay with me I mean I'd rather them rather and get more but see what I mean like this this looks like it's full with five cars but then if we come up here we got six cars on this one yeah it does this thing again to look like I bet you the next one goes to dislike it prefers one over the other for some reason I don't know it didn't that time well maybe it did maybe it didn't yeah these guys sit there for a little while I'm not sure why see I don't think he should like he's not gonna get another car but he's just sitting there and now this guy's getting cars here let's do we can do fast forward I think double you know yeah yeah why is he still sitting there it's almost like there there he goes no idea why he waited that long there he goes big to do because our train let's come back up to this train station so this is quite a few cars and how many can the car dealership hold so if you're gonna do this oh you can okay nice so there's plenty of cars in storage so you don't have to worry you know one of the things you could do is put like an extra car storage there but I'm not sure if that's necessary you probably better I'm just building it's like some kind of Depot someplace else where you you know where you load up cars from like one of these like you know see there they're putting them in there and it's kind of a buffer right here so I would say I would just make a bigger buffer storage someplace else and then have a train going around yes we have a lot of cars coming in here now look at I'm moving out so I'm like hotcakes there you go so that answers that question yeah we can drop right off from there yeah that's really I think almost all the questions I had I think like I said now at this point if you guys have any more questions or things you think I didn't test I mean I know there's like you know a bunch of possibilities for what we could do here but you know I don't I don't I didn't attach anywhere in particular I just touched or whatever everything seems to be work and this is a waste saying with this don't do that but other than that you know I think everything else is working working just fine so let me uh we just let it play forward a bit you know and we'll just see what it looks like you know in in some fairly short period of time see if I have any other issues when I'm off camera for a minute here there you go that's how you want to set up your set up your car manufacturing it kind of any you know if you're familiar with the game I wouldn't sweat it right everything should kind of work like everything else kind of works there's no gotchas for me anyway right like you know being having built enough different little factory setups I'm quite satisfied with the way this is alright let me pause the video and I'll come back to say goodbye when we're all jammed up with cars how's that saying see you guys in a minute hey guys at that time play forward and then it started to get a little bit jammed up with cars mostly over here and the reason is is because I didn't have these things selected so if you just by default is just university-educated right so there's only so many and then you get this message no no no this is no free parking places but you know you can prefer university education prefer younger only under 30 under Lander 40 any so you can you know mess with how many people have cars which is good idea though the other thing is no free parking places not sure a hundred percent what the issue is with going a little bit higher I imagine it's that if this is 75 percent full I'm wondering if it's not counting like these cars right so in other words you may end up with too many cars in the lot if they half of them are going to work or however many are going to work I would think you should be able to get away with like 2/3 right like for the different shifts now this guy I'm gonna send the police over here we actually don't have police but if we did cuz I think he got drunk and just that might be a girl left her car in the middle of the lot they are for some pretty soon so yeah I mean I'm not gonna even try to say that name but in any event yeah I think she's in trouble we need to go check her out for DUI but other than that going pretty well I did put another truck on the route over to here but yeah I mean it it's it's working pretty well now the only other thing to other things to say one is let's let's switch over to make dumpers and I definitely think I have a lot of overkill on the supply and I'm thinking of even redoing my design because of this like maybe when you get into doing other vehicles but you know we just have a lot of we're way which is four trucks were easily you know supplying everything we need to these this factory the steel is building up I mean it's still going back and forth but it's such a big steel yard right just gonna take him a while two feet up so we really don't need like trains going in-between and my other series like you know you really don't need a ton of supply for one of these but if you had you know trains coming into here offloading your steel and other other parts that's probably a good idea keep it local right but that's just that's up to you you could probably even get away with supplying them from afar with trucks you just you know be a little less fuel efficient so they're not sucking down some massive amount of steel even with a good you know look we're up 375 at 85 we have plenty of people working now I just want to like let that want the dumper go and then we'll just see what happens with them and the only other thing that I wanted to point out was none of these vehicles actually seem to require the electronics so you know for me in my regular map it's not a big deal but just know that at this point you don't actually need the electronics the electrical components you need but but I went through literally and just kind of look not one of them needs electronics that I could see now if I'm wrong please leave a comment but there you go so let's take a step backwards so yeah let's just say I guess we could actually load I'm wondering if it'll load yeah looking he loaded on to this truck okay yeah so that's that's a little bit of an issue so if you're gonna make these you might want to cut your trucks off first right so we could say yeah let's just see go to Depot right yeah so you might want to keep that in mind right there that's one of the reasons kind of little things that you kind of figure out as the game goes on but yeah so now well we unload the car there as well now can we just send the car that's another question I have yeah I'm kind of glad we're doing this here let's fast forward then when it gets there it was a good click yeah so he unloaded the car now can we change depot and tell him okay so we can send them to a parking lot but we can't send them to one of those that was that wasn't the truck that was the the loan car so there we go yeah now we have a dumper that we made ourselves so yeah I'm pretty excited I think you know I may make a few passenger cars but you're gonna see me producing a bunch of different Road vehicles on my regular map I'm pretty excited about that there you go well let me know if you have any comments I'd be happy to come back to this and and test it for you guys even if I don't make another video so all right well thank you for watching let me know if you have any questions or comments please subscribe or

Constructing a Hopyard Part 1



hi my name is Roger anvil my wife and I own board of you farm here in Alberta Vermont and we hosts a research project for the University of Vermont extension and we have been given a task to build a hops yard our goal is to put in a one acre yard and going by what the industry standards show these are some of the items that are needed to build this hops yard one thing that's kind of amazing or it's a little overwhelming is when you realize how much cable is needed to hold up these hops and on a one acre hops yard it takes roughly five to seven thousand feet of cable so this is some a big purchase item that people need to realize is quite an expense but these hops from what I'm told will produce around 20 tons of weight on these cables in a one acre hops yard so it's real important that it's well trellis so that it'll with winds and weather conditions the hops yards will sustain the weight because the last thing that I'm told you want to do is to go out there and pick these hops off the ground when a cable breaks so that said this is just an example of the cable these are this is a five sixteenths cable this tool is what's used to hook the cable up to scratch them because they're so heavy feel it's probably a real important item to have to tighten the cables up these are turn buckles that we'll be putting these anchors and these are 4-foot anchors will screw them in the ground we'll hook these turnlock hose to them and the cable would go on the other end and that's to keep our cables tight these will go outside the hops yard and all the poles all the way around or is in and we need also cable clamps to cable all the cables together and make the eye hook into these turnbuckles these are eye screws and this is something we're going to try here this year is put one of these screws and each pull and run our cables through the top and to keep the cables on top of the poles so they can support the weight of the hops so this is basically all the materials that you'll need and we'll be looking at the poles that we'll be putting up and I guess that's it for now this is what we're using for augur for setting our pulse holes it's a commercial create hydraulic auger and it's 12-inch and really necessary for putting in these large poles because sometimes you hit stone and you've got to get down at least four feet so the frost won't push them up so this is what we're using and it seems to be till working pretty good these being a 20-foot poles we what we do is we mark up a half and center so they make sure we hook our chains in the center of the pole so that they lift properly so when you go to set them so your big head goes in the ground so marking your poles in the center and tighten your chain the center swings your pole with a with the big end down that goes into the ground setting our poles we want to get it we're good trying to make sure that we get these at least four feet deep so just we have one man just guiding the pulse in the hole you have to be careful not to set the pole too much of an angle when you put it in because it drags dirt in the hole with it and we're not getting our polling point four feet deep we're using Tamarack for our poles these grow abundantly in this area and they're really high highly rot resistant they are a softwood but they're very hard softwood so the what we're trying to use here for our bowls and for the outside bowls we're using the Tamarack for inside pulls that were just holding the gut the cables up with we're using cedars and those are plentiful around here also the reason the poles are long is because we're building a 16-foot trellis we're going in the ground for feet so that defrost doesn't push them back out and you'll notice the poles leaned outside perimeter poles we all we lean outside hold the tension on the cable and because of poles are leading you

Jeffrey Smith – Exposing Industry and Government Lies About Safety of Genetically Engineered Foods



for people unfamiliar with you please just tell us your name a little bit about your background and really what you've been doing for the last 20 years actually for 23 years I've been traveling around the world speaking on GMOs writing books and making movies and I run an institute called the Institute for Responsible technology my name is Jeffrey Smith and my latest film is called secret ingredients which I did with Amy Hart and that's available at secret ingredients movie.com what scientific studies have been done on the health impacts of GMOs on our health and what did the studies show there's been numerous studies now that show significant impacts on animals that are force-fed GMOs in feeding trials potentially precancerous cells in the digestive tract smaller brains livers and testicles partial atrophy of the liver damaged immune system activated a new immune system multiple massive tumors premature death significant issues throughout the range of areas that they've tested including damage to the microbiome now these are not unpredicted because the process of genetic engineering itself causes massive collateral damage within the DNA and can create randomly new toxins allergens anti-nutrients or increased levels of existing toxins allergens and anti nutrients in addition GMOs are largely designed to be sprayed with herbicide most popularly is roundup the Roundup Ready seeds constitute the vast majority of GMOs more than 80 percent roundup residues end up in the crops and roundup is quite dangerous to health and a lot of research on roundup also shows significant problems in fact roundup can damage the very foundation of our health in addition some crops are called BT crops corn cotton and in South America some soy BT Bacillus thuringiensis that's soil bacteria they take a gene from the soil bacteria insert it into the GMO it produces a toxin Bt toxin which kills insects by poking holes in the guts of those insects now they found in laboratory studies it can poke holes in human cells so it might be causing leaky gut or perforated cells in our gut it also can provoke an immune system response in animals and it's been shown to provoke in the insistent response in workers that are handling the BT so if you look at the Bt toxin the roundup or the GMO itself they all show significant signs of problems I had the honour and pleasure of bringing the documented health risks of genetically engineered foods to the medical community by starting in 2006 presentations to medical conferences and soon after many of these practitioners were prescribing non-gmo diets to their patients and around 2008 I heard from some of those doctors who described how their patients got better from a variety of diseases specifically after they took GMOs out of their diet and it was predictable in fact they were telling me certain disorders or diseases get better in a certain number of days within a particular range or the level of predictability was uncanny this was new news to me and basically everyone because no one knew how sensitive people were to eating GMOs so I actually started to ask people in my lectures how many of you noticed an improvement in your health when you switch to a non-gmo and often organic diet and the hands would go up so I would say okay what changes did you notice and I asked the same question and people would say for example I have problems with digestion I said how many people noticed a problem with digestion and I'd see the hands how many people noticed increased or decreased fatigue and decreased brain fog how many people lost weight and I was watching these answers and it was the same basic answers in over a hundred and fifty lectures including many lectures to the medical community where I said on behalf of your patients what did you notice so they were representing thousands and thousands of patients and then we surveyed 3000 256 people who reported getting better in 28 conditions the same conditions that people reported in these lectures in the same relative order the number one improvement was always digestive problems number two was increased energy reduced fatigue 3 was weight loss including relief from obesity then brain fog then all sorts of things food sensitivities pain anxiety depression autism cancer hypertension and if you look at these particular diseases many of them are on the rise in parallel with the increased use of GMOs and the Roundup herbicide sprayed on them in the United States so we have the examples of people getting better from these disorders we have the correlative evidence supporting the link doesn't cause it doesn't prove it but it supports it we have similar reports from veterinarians pet owners and farmers when they take pets and livestock and put them on non GMOs and when you look at the laboratory animals that are force-fed GMOs or roundup they exhibit either these conditions or their precursors moreover if you look at the modes of action of Bt toxin of roundup and also the process of genetic engineering itself you could predict these particular set of diseases and I'm talking about the major diseases we're facing in society so when you take a look at the whole body of evidence and the repeating patterns it's pretty significant in fact I don't think we need to wait for more evidence to immediately eliminate GMOs and round up from our diets now it used to be that I'd say eat GMOs and if you can eat organic then you get all the benefits of organic now we understand that roundup is sprayed on a lot of non GMOs it's sprayed on wheat oats barley all the cereals or grains it's sprayed on lentils and mung beans it's sprayed on potatoes and sweet potato fields it's throughout our food supply except in the organic field so now I say eat organic and if you can't eat organic at least eat non-gmo are we winning or losing the fight against GMOs and what's the number one thing people can do to stop the spread of GMOs we're winning the fight against GMOs and that's because the one thing people can do that's more important than anything else is to stop eating them and the accumulation of the people who are now seeking non-gmo is so great that the food companies realize they must eliminate GMOs from their brands in order to compete with the competing brand that has the non GMO label on the same shelf in fact surveys show that 46% of Americans say they're seeking non GMO food now I guess that the actual number of people that do what they say is less but I think we have more people than we need and the tipping point is underway now we need to realize also that the biotech industry who's famous for trying to cover up problems and dissing form they have a new campaign to diss inform and that campaign is built around gene editing CRISPR caste 9 is one example you may have heard of in the news and they try to claim that this is not a GMO in fact it's so precise and so predictable we should just call it breeding and ignore it please don't ignore it research has shown that the process of editing genes as well as the tissue culture used right afterwards to create the GMO and sometimes they transfer the gene edited substance all of that creates massive collateral damage in the DNA and any one of those mutations may be serious for health and yet there's many many mutations that occur as a result of this process and the biotech industry is ignoring those largely in fact they're using the same rhetoric that they used 25 years ago saying oh genetic engineering is so precise and so predictable we should just ignore it and not regulate it well unfortunately CRISPR casts 9 and other gene editing techniques are so inexpensive that any facility with a laboratory can genetically engineer products almost at no cost and yet there is a big advantage if you can put in a patented GMO in the market and make money before the patent expires and so what we have is a gold rush into the genome a gene rush and everything with DNA is targeted so if we are not vigil then the biotech industry could literally replace nature eliminate the products of the billions of years of evolution and replace it with designer organisms released into the environment which then self propagate in the gene pool so that means all future generations after this one may inherit the travesty of a technology that's most common result is unpredicted side-effects and these are being the side effects are multiplied when you put them in the environment because you have side effects within the organism and then you have side effects in their interactions with the complex food and ecological web so we're in a very important turning point or not are we going to turn away from nature and eliminate what we have been given from previous generations and turn it over to a Monsanto / Bayer version of of reality or are we going to protect the genetic integrity and the number one thing people can do is to avoid GMOs and to share this information with others it is interesting that it's kind of a responsibility for us now that this technology is available but it's also a opportunity because no other technology in history has been able to negatively affect all living beings in all future generations and so we get the ability to protect all living beings and all future generations when you go in the grocery you're seeing as you said more and more non-gmo products people are getting more and more hip to this and starting to buy those products can they label something is non-gmo when the reality is they're just doing the same old thing anyway and they're just marketing it that way there are many non GMO labels on the market the one that I look for is non-gmo project verified that's a third party organization they require if there's any at-risk ingredients in the final product that the inputs get tested and buy tested by a credentialed laboratory they have a document review they have visits so I recommend the non-gmo project a verification program there is also what we call self certification or a company may just slap a non-gmo on their box and I remember Cheerios did that in the early 2014 and I called him up and said what's your criteria and they wouldn't tell me so Trader Joe's said we don't allow the use of GMOs in our named brands that say Trader Joe's and I'm seeing I those corn syrup but I'm thinking well what do they do and what's their testing procedure they don't release that either so we are frustrated by companies that don't give us the details we can we consistently ask them to turn over the details were grateful that they're taking attempts to avoid GMOs but we're not fully satisfied with their with their label tell us about this 289 million dollar verdict against Bayer what does it mean and does it affect the industry Monsanto was purchased by Bayer the aspirin company but they also have a crop division that sells GMOs and herbicides etc and when they were looking to purchase Monsanto I released a document for their shareholders pointing out about 10 areas where there was a high risk exposure that they weren't taking it into consideration and one of those was the health dangers and the cancer determination the International Agency for research on cancer a branch of the World Health Organization had determined that glyphosate which is the chief poison in roundup was a class 2 a carcinogen a probable human carcinogen and the strongest evidence was about non-hodgkins lymphoma well the lawyers got hold of it and that was a good thing and they represented a groundskeeper Lee Johnson from the Bay Area in California who had been exposed to Roundup while he was a groundskeeper he was I think delivering as much as I think 150 gallons a day on the days that he was spraying he the wind would blow it into his face one time the the hose broke and he got drenched another time his backpack broke and he got drenched in the back and he ended up calling the company the company hotline a couple of times reaching out saying is there any connection because I have rashes now I have cancer is there any connection and even after the International Agency for research on cancer determined that glyphosate was a probable human carcinogen two weeks after that he called and was never told about the late and continued to use roundup and his situation changed from a curable cancer to a supposedly incurable terminal cancer and so they rushed his his trial while he was still alive and he is still alive at this point and it was interesting I interviewed the chief attorney brent Wisner and on our site responsible Technology org I strongly recommend it's fascinating it's entertaining it's some people call it life-changing to watch these six part or now probably more than that interview with Brent Wisner he's amazing I was on the doctors TV show with him for a full episode arguing about the the problems with the cancer-causing glyphosate and revealing the secret documents from Monsanto that the that he was able to force into public domain there's a whole story about that you got to catch that and I was there during the closing arguments that were very dramatic and reported on it in live facebook responsible at the Institute for Responsible technology Facebook page and when the jury verdict was read it was a shot heard round the world they awarded in compensatory damages which is the actual cost to Lee of 38 million dollars and then or 39 and then the punitive damages was 250 million so the total is 289 million now the judge later reduced it to it about 78 million but nonetheless when the 289 million was announced soon after the bear capitalisation the stock prices dropped by twenty to thirty percent twenty billion dollar drop on a2 and because they have nearly ten thousand other plaintiffs waiting in the wings now at one point a judge said that they were going to limit the the evidence that was available to the jury in future trials and bears stock price went up seven percent and then another judge just recently said in least the the trials that he oversees that he was going to allow more evidence than the other truck the other judge said and I haven't seen the stock prices change but it is very significant because it actually represents an incredible opportunity for the the makers of Roundup and the liars about roundup to pay out to those who have suffered from their lies and there's a lot of very serious issues I mean Lee Johnson is supposed to die soon and I've met him and it's a very sad thing and the victory in the courts is a magnificent thing because that can help prevent other sad situations and between the the announcement by the International Agency for research on cancer in 2015 and this announcement by the jury the it's a shot heard around the world and people now realize that roundup is linked to cancer in spite of the fact that Monsanto's people at the EPA and I'm using that very specifically watch that interview to find out how they have a lap dog in the EPA that they had that they were working with and he was cub you know going back and forth with texting and they was talking about in my email and he was clearly a Monsanto man in charge of the EPA's determination of whether glyphosate was caused camp caused cancer and of course he said it didn't and even helped stop another agency from doing research on the same thing and said if I can stop it I deserve a medal so you can know where his thinking is so there's they've created a controversy and a recent study has shown that the EPA and the European regulators specifically cherry-picked the data by looking at almost entirely other therefore their decisions unpublished industry research whereas the International Agency for research on cancer or IARC looked at published studies and the vast majority the published studies showed toxicity to the DNA and the only one of the industry studies of about 99 showed that there was toxicity to the DNA and so they came to different conclusions because it was designed to come to different conclusions they cherry-pick the data specifically to ignore the evidence and there's many other details in terms of how they ignored it and we've caught them red-handed so this is an important development that the courts are now moving the needle on glyphosate roundup and because most GMOs are Roundup Ready it's also moving the needle on GMOs as well if someone is against GMOs or they better off voting Republican or Democrat they're better off voting with their dollar you know it's interesting the Democrats and the Republicans both the presidents since Reagan have been Pro GMO the Obama administration was worse than the previous Bush administration on GMOs and Trump is no better than Obama there's been a lockdown in Washington both at the executive level and the congressional level and even the Supreme Court has Clarence Thomas it was a former Monsanto attorney so we are not to set up to win in Washington right now the USDA under Trump released a fake labeling bill one that basically deceives every American and works on behalf of the biotech industry I've written about it we have a petition at responsible Technology org please go there and sign it and the petitions usually don't have much impact but this one is not at the White House in the USDA but it's aimed at the food companies because in the petition we give them information about how this labeling this fake labeling deal will actually hurt their interests and I'm sure they never thought of it so so please go there and learn about the fake labeling bill under a trump USDA but you know I can't single out Trump or Obama or bush or Clinton they all have been pushing the GMO agenda and I can give specific examples but just assume that it's outside the apparatus of US politics in the federal level where we're going to win and we used to think that the state level would have a lot of power for us because we had state ballot in shifts for labeling the representatives of Vermont passed a labeling bill and of course the Congress rushed in and preempted state labeling bills and ballot initiatives saying no no state can can require labeling of GMOs it's going to be a national thing and we give it to the USDA to determine it over two years and that's what they did they came up with a fake labeling bill so what's great about the GMO campaigning for me is that you don't actually have to change government policy in order to win the European Commission for example is pro GMO and so is their version of the FDA of the European Food Safety Authority but they don't sell GMOs in the food supply except through animal feed because the people learned about him because of a open media and a big scandal that happened in 1999 about food safety that no one of the u.s. knows about and because there was so much concern about GMOs among the population the food companies not the government banned GMOs from their food supply Unilever April 27th 1999 Nestle is April 28th everyone else within a couple of weeks 1999 in Europe but not here the same companies that banded their continued to sell the unsuspecting Americans the GMOs that the Europeans had rejected there are stories out there that Monsanto does what it can to hush their opposition surely you've been under I don't want to use the word attack but can you tell us anything about your experiences in terms of you know you having this voice against these folks and and what have you experienced from them well you know what Boy Scouts get merit badges for doing certain things I got my merit badge when Monsanto started to attack me it's like I was exposing how they were suppressing evidence attacking and threatening scientists getting people fired covering up and I was just said of biding my time waiting until I mean obviously was on their radar I had the world's best-selling book on GMOs seeds of deception I've been traveling to 25 countries by this time and then I came out with the book genetic roulette which was a compilation of all the health dangers and people were using that all over the world is kind of like the Bible because it was all the different health dangers you know I could gather from all the different scientists around the world and then what they did is they paid some of their so-called scientists to come up with a hit website that supposedly showed that my evidence was wrong but what it did is it showed how they distorted and denied by even after three years that it was on the market they published a rebuttal that missed quoted or miss characterized the book in order to be in order for them to make their arguments so they came up with a fake website and at great expense they did a probably hired private investigators to look at my past and tried to find skeletons I found out that I meditate and that I danced so they tried to use that against me so at this point they have they have a very specific structure a line item in their budget called let nothing go and anytime someone posts something on Facebook one of their thousands of trolls will comment and try and shame them and make it unpopular when someone a scientist comes up with something they'll gather the troops and try and say Press that I think I'm targeted by that same budget line item and I actually ignore it I don't read the articles written by the people that get money from Monsanto and they try to hide the fact that they're getting money and we've been able to actually verify that they are being paid they're paid agents and so I don't bother reading them or replying to them what I do is get my word out to millions and help move the markets by telling the truth and if a dozen people think that I'm a bad person because I'm me calling for more science if they want to call me anti science that's fine so I want to bring this up that a lot of people listening will want to share what they've heard about GMOs on their social media and I have I think it's nothing to post a an article about the trolls the the people hired by Monsanto bear to shame you if you do such that if you if you post something you may get someone that looks like a real person but they have a fake name and they have an argument which is designed to make you sound wrong so this shaming technique works in human nature it's been the basis of so many corporate and political and religious campaigns through history because people shrink from that shaming and now with social media it's kind of a public public shaming so I'm going to ask people mm-hmm not to be susceptible that when you get shamed make it your merit badge aha we found a troll you can link to my troll article say aha we found a troll go here go here if you run your own Facebook page just take them out just take them out they don't deserve your time or attention or the tension of people that read your posts so if so I wanted to suggest that people just flip the whole energy around this public shaming no constriction no fear actually wear it as a merit badge and say AHA I'm making enough during enough of the pot so I'm getting the attention now not everyone that posts negatively is a troll there's the lawyers and the lied too and sometimes the lie too will just pick up the same energy and say yes this is wrong because that's what they've been told do we have documented all of the myths and truths there's even a book called GMO myths and truths online which I recommend written by friends of mine there are so much evidence now supporting our case and completely undermining their case that we actually have the truth on our side right now who in the United States government is in charge of the approvals of GMOs is this person from the biotech industry and are they protecting biotech industry or the people in the early 90s the White House had instructed the FDA to promote GMOs and so the FDA created a new position specifically for Michael Taylor Monsanto's a former attorney to be in charge and the policy that he created said that the companies themselves were in charge of determining whether their foods are safe they could submit a voluntary consultation process to the FDA giving whatever they wanted to give if the FDA asked them questions they could ignore the questions and at the end of this meaningless exercise the FDA would write a letter to them and the letter would not say the FDA confirms the safety of your food the FDA wrote the letter saying this is to confirm that you believe your foods are safe it just was a complete burek bureaucratic cover-up of any real evaluation and the FDA has never received a single dossier with sufficient evidence of the raw data to evaluate except the first one which was for a flavor savor tomato and we have the documents by the FDA scientists saying this does not show safety they were stomach lesions and deaths etc and among these rats and after that no company ever submitted detailed data to the FDA so the FDA is not in charge the EPA is in charge if you have a product that produces an insecticide like the BT crops they'll just look at the BT portion of it they won't look at the whole GMO so it's really like reductionist science to its max very dangerous way of evaluating or they'll look at the herbicide that sprayed on the Roundup Ready crops for example the roundup and approve that so that's fine so they basically and they don't they specifically don't look at the full round up they look of just the glyphosate even though roundup is 125 times they're up 225 times more toxic than glyphosate they don't look at low dose effects even though the amount of glyphosate necessary to create non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and rats was was on a per bodyweight basis on a per day consumption these rats had so little roundup that the EPA allows four hundred and thirty seven thousand times more consumed by humans on a per body weight per day basis because they don't look at the low dose effects so the EPA is basically working with science that's 20 years old on purpose for the benefit of the companies that have their products submitted and we have evidence that they know that and that they're ignoring it so the EPA is in charge of a very small slice of the pie and the USDA looks at when the White House told the FDA and the regulatory agencies to promote GMOs they said we don't want they didn't say this but we know they did not want Congress to pass new laws so they jerry-rigged existing laws and say just regulate it based on existing laws and so they the USDA has laws about invasive species and so ok let's talk about an invasive species what we know bacteria and viruses can be invasive and the GMOs that are on the market have bacterial genes or viral genes ok that's the excuse so now with gene editing all the company has to do is send a letter to the USDA and say we're not using any genetic material from bacteria or viruses you don't really have to look at us to you and they'll say no it's not not our jurisdiction we have no laws regarding that and so they ignore I mean they could more widely interpret the law but don't so there's no one home at the USDA and for gene-editing no one looks at it not the USDA not the EPA not the FDA no one so who's in charge of approving the answer is the company's aside from plants are there other living items like trees insects and animals where you're concerned that genetic modification will cause problems right now everything with DNA is being targeted the gene editing technique is so inexpensive that they want to basically patent anything with DNA get it out there and make money there's a company called Oxitec which has genetically modified mosquitoes designed to kill off the population of the mosquito that carries dengue and Zika and I remember testifying at a mosquito control board in Key West because they wanted him to release it in the keys and their scientist so-called scientists from Oxitec was speaking as well and afterwards I asked Derrick I said I said have you tested to see if the saliva of the of the mosquitoes that bite humans has is altered because of the genetic engineering process obviously if it is altered it gets in our bloodstream and that could be a problem he said we're just now looking to see if the protein produced by the inserted gene is expressed in the saliva and I'm thinking a little late buddy you've already released millions of mosquitoes in four countries and you've never looked at the portion of the mosquito that gets into human blood you're an idiot but I actually you know in poker I see you and raise you I said Derrick you know there was a study done on human cells where they inserted a single gene and up to five percent of the functioning genes in that cell changed their levels of expression producing more proteins less proteins switching on switching off wouldn't it make sense to do a complete analysis of the saliva and not just look for one protein and his response was good idea so these are the brain cells behind genetically modified mosquitoes and it's interesting they got kicked out of the Cayman Islands the Cayman Islands what they were going to do a island wide release and they decided well let's do one more trial so they did a trial and it was a failure so then oxy tech convinced them to pay for another trial they did another trial and quietly Oxitec just left town fired all their employees and we understand that it was a failure as well so their responses oh now we have to point oh now we have a different technology and our mosquitoes that so and it turns out there's other there's other techniques that are way safer and way less controversial that many countries are doing and Oxitec has all these different types of insects in their pipeline trying to basically take over the insect market there's genetically modified fish being sold in Canada which might cause increased allergic reactions might be linked to cancer we have higher levels of igf-1 in the fish higher levels higher reactivity in the and the allergic reaction test but there were the numbers were so small it wasn't statistically significant I mean I think that the number it was a significant increase if you look simply at the 25 percent or 50 percent increase but they used so few numbers as if to ensure that they showed no safety concerns and yet they're releasing this food to the public it's already being eaten in Canada there's genetically modified trees there's over a million GM poplars I think planted in China and they don't know exactly where they are which ones are genetically engineered there was a study that just came out this week saying that if they genetically engineer the American chestnut there's no plan there's no way that they can control that you see once you release a GMO into the environment it cross pollinate sit it produces offspring and it is part of the gene pool and when you have a tree or pollen can fly for miles and there's a whole ecosystem in the bark and in the leaves and underneath you're affecting an enormous amount and trees and forests affect the weather if you if you denude a land from a forest you'll change the weather you'll change the runoff it'll be it can be a disaster we've seen that time and time again and yet they're releasing trees that are less stiff left lower lignin count that's trees that can kill insects which is changes the whole ecosystem you know basically for lumber you know they're turning they're turning these beings of trees into loam you know they don't think in terms of nature they think in terms of industry so for example they want to genetically engineer out the mothering instinct of livestock so you can take the children away from the mothers of the cows etc and they won't notice they don't care because rather than making agriculture with industry to fit agriculture the making agriculture to fit industry so they want a genetically engineer algae bacteria fungus there's been a glow fish on the market you can buy as a pet that glows in the dark they've made puppies and cats glow in the dark and laboratories it's amazing but what's amazing is the disrespect for what we don't know yet for years scientists believe that one gene created one protein created one trait that was wrong they also felt like because the functioning genes that produce proteins were only maybe 2% of our genome 98% of our DNA they considered junk genes now they realized those who report they said RNA just a way station between DNA and RNA and protein now it turns out RNA creates all sorts of regulatory changes it is so much more complicated than they thought it's not rocket science it's way more complicated and yet in the face of that level of complexity they dumb it down and dumb it down and say well we can take a out of this species and put it in here or change this and these changes will happen and we don't know exactly what will happen but we'll assume that that's ok and we'll release it into the environment so it's permanently part of nature and we'll feed it to people are there other techniques not called genetic modification that in effect manipulate the genetics of the plant that you are concerned about there's ways of mutating genes through chemicals or radiation canola for example was oil seed rape where they took the seeds and exposed it to radiation so that the new plants produced a lower amount of a toxin that was deadly and so they called that a healthy plant and a healthy oil and there's very little follow-up and research into what other things might have changed etc so I am concerned about what's called mutagenesis and chemical mutagenesis etc but it's not my area of expertise my focus has been on genetic engineering which is the transfer of genes from one species the gene editing etc and there's plenty of evidence showing that those are dangerous aren't GMO is helping us to feed the world no GMOs are not helping us to feed the world next question actually let me let me go in more detail into that this is the lie that Monsanto dreamed up by their PR firm to try and create guilt among Europeans and Americans so that we would accept their faulty dangerous unsafe technology because someday it might actually help feed the world well first of all GMOs do not increase yield on average it's the same or in some cases less and agroecology which was recommended by the hundreds of scientists that did the most comprehensive evaluation in terms of how to feed the world for the UN the ISTAT report said agro ecology is the way forward they dismissed GMOs as being essentially irrelevant to the question of how to feed the world whereas agro ecology can double yields GMOs basically have no measurable average increase in yield now it's also true that increased yield was not the way to feed the world because we have more food per person than any time in human history enough food to feed 11 billion people I'm told and yet close to a billion people go to bed hungry or malnourished every night so increasing production is not the Silver Bullet according to the experts it's access its distribution there's a lot of complex elements and so to try and promote a silver bullet that's actually a faulty silver silver bullet it doesn't actually increase yields and it's dangerous and it creates a dependence on corporations by developing countries and it wipes out biodiversity there's all sorts sorts of things that it that's bad but even simply to push it forward as the as the technology to cure hunger takes money away from the real solutions so Bill Gates was approached by the Rockefeller Foundation a very big pro-gmo foundation and he was convinced and insulated people around him more than monsanto yes-men and now he's giving millions of dollars to the technology for africa and ignoring technologies that actually work and going for technologies that fail time and again and then put people at risk when they if they were to eat these products so it actually works against feeding the hungry world our organic farmers able to protect their farms from being contaminated by GMO crops grown elsewhere the nature of nature is abundance and sharing and when you plant GM corn upwind and it blows during the time that the pollen is available if your corn is downwind you will get cross pollinated you'll get contaminated now you can choose corn that that tassles at a different time than the corn upwind so it may be there's no fertilization that's the word at the at the time you can choose to move your crop you can have buffer zones but there is the capacity to contaminate in the field during transport in storage and so sometimes you'll find that there is a percentage small percentage of GMO contamination and the contamination is higher for corn that is for soybeans because corn cross pollinates and soybeans do not readily cross pollinate they've been a small distance perhaps so we have a situation where even though organic is not a foolproof area it's the better choice now non-gmo project verified requires testing if there's at risk ingredients to see if contamination has occurred and as a point nine percent threshold organic has no testing requirement so but it doesn't allow GMOs or roundup or other toxic chemicals so I say organic is more important than non-gmo project verified because you avoid the GMOs and the chemicals but the two together is the gold standard because then you have the testing from the non-gmo project requirements as well as all the prohibitions of organic so non-gmo project verified plus organic on the same package the gold standard if you have to choose between one or the other I say organic and if you can't get organic at least get non-gmo are there GMOs studies that show that GMOs are safe and if so were these independent or industry studies there's no research that can prove something is safe there's no and there's no research that has been available that proved that GMOs were safe we have a whole body of evidence produced by the biotech companies that I call rigged research they've got bad science down to a science they used the wrong detection methods the wrong statistics they overcook samples they ignore evidence and call it not biologically significant or not treatment related without any justification they have an entire lexicon they have an entire of Cabul airy in a way of corrupting science that has become the norm now and I've spoken to real scientists who are like pulling their house out saying this is not how science is done and yet that's how the biotech science is done in my book genetic roulette in part three it's 41 pages catching the industry red-handed showing how they rigged their research and it is amazing it is blatant how they I mean sometimes it's how they rigged the research and sometimes it's they're completely ridiculous statements and assumptions I'll give one example because I like it so much they were submitting a corn to Australian New Zealand that was genetically engineered to produce more lysine so they can feed it to pigs and so the pigs would have lysine built into the corn instead of just adding the supplement lysine into their feed oh good we can ignore you know it's like fine we can ignore giving them lysine if we have this corn and it's so necessary to feed the world and it produced a protein that was found in soil and they said well because the protein is found in soil and we eat soil residues in the food it has a history of safe use in the food supply so it should be just accepted as safe because we've been eating soil for years for centuries so Jack Hyneman a a scientist and professor in New Zealand called their bluff and figured out looked up what the average corn consumption was for a u.s. male adult and figured out if that corn were the high lysine corn that was being submitted how much of that protein would be consumed per day and then he figured out how much of that protein is found in soil and how much soil that same average male adult would have to consume per day in order to have an equivalent dose and it was 22,000 pounds of soil per second you'd have to be consuming 22,000 pounds of soil per second every second of the day to get the same amount of protein that you would if you ate Monsanto's corn on an average corn consuming day I mean I love that in that example because it's so absurd and yet these are the kind of arguments and it is ridiculous how well they fly in the regulatory agencies that are largely staffed with the biotech appointments and I've talked to them and some of them are really not very aware of the situation I don't I'd I won't call them unintelligent but they're certainly ignorant and I remember talking to one of the top scientists in the world doctor PM Bhargava who was asked by the Indian Supreme Court to sit on the approval committee and see if in fact it was a facade according to a citizens petition that's what was claimed and after 10 months he said yes it's a facade and he told me we did a press conference conference in Delhi he said it's every single submission any any evidence of problems they would say its discredited no matter what what Journal that was put in no matter who did it they just said it's discredited and when he came out with his report and sent it to the Supreme Court and sent it to the Health Ministry and the prend the Prime Minister the same committee tried to discredit him and said he has no no research in DNA and RNA he actually had more DNA and RNA research than the entire committee put together and he you know it was a ridiculous thing he laughed about how he was being treated by these people who he had caught red-handed lying and covering up and ignoring the evidence are there health risks from eating genetically modified corn and if there are what are they corn is genetically engineered over 90% of it and corn on the cob it's less than 90% but corn on the cob that's genetically engineered may be one of the worst GMOs to consume because it has many different genes put in there and it has Bt toxin Bt toxin has been shown to create immune responses and farm workers that use Beatty in its natural state and this is thousands of times more concentrated it's been found to poke holes in human cells and laboratories it's been found in the blood of 93% of the pregnant women tested in Canada which means an ensign gets into their their fetus as well and that may be get into the brain of the fetus because there's no blood-brain barrier so you have the Bt toxin and then it's sprayed with Roundup and the roundup can damage the very foundations of our health and on top of that you have the genetic engineering problems the genetic engineered corn beat one of Monsanto's BT corns for example has a new allergen that's not found in the normal corn the Roundup Ready corn has higher levels of putrescine and cadaverine which I love those names they are responsible for the foul odor of rotting dead bodies they can lead to bad breath but they're also linked to cancer and allergies so you have the damage as a result of the DNA changes and the end with raw corn or with corn it's not cooked well so you don't end up eliminating the proteins you don't end up destroying the proteins you just cook it for a few minutes heat it and you get all the toxins now what may be worse than the corn or the genetically engineered apples and potatoes these were introduced more recently they are designed not to turn brown when sliced and they use double-stranded RNA technology little pieces of RNA are produced by the inserted gene and they silenced genes now we know from research that for example a mouse can eat double-stranded RNA in a meal and have that Mouse and have his DNA silenced we know the honeybees when they had one single meal in the larva stage one single meal of double-stranded RNA it changed the expression of about 10% of their genome over 1,400 genes so I say don't eat the apple or the potato because it might reprogram your DNA are you in favor of any GMO crops our Institute for Responsible technology is very specific we're against the use of GMOs in food and were against the outdoor release of GMOs why is that this is an infant technology that is prone to side effects and it's basic assumptions that were used as a basis for safety claims have proven untrue over and over again they're constantly finding new nuances in the complex ways that the DNA and RNA and proteins etc function within the cell and work within the organism and to release a GMO into the environment or it can self-replicate and become part of the new new nature is completely irresponsible at this point in our understanding and to release it into the food supply is similarly irresponsible because of the predicted on unpredicted side-effects if you keep it in a laboratory for research for manufacturing purposes etc and it's contained we don't have a policy against that but we don't want this dangerous technology released what scientific studies have been done on the environmental impacts of GMOs on our planet and food system what did the studies show it's important to understand before we go into the details of the soil problems and they in the the non-target insects etc that pollution of the gene pool is irreversible if you introduce a gene into a crop and across pollinates and you release it outdoors for example StarLink corn I used to work at a laboratory that detected for GMOs I was the vice president of marketing I got a call from the laboratory director we found StarLink corn in taco shells and I said test it again don't tell the client it turns out it was illegal in human food and it resulted in a over a billion dollar recall and countries all over the world stopped importing US corn because it might have StarLink that was a medium-light likely human allergen medium probability and wasn't ever supposed to be part of the human food supply and they found StarLink and I think 22% of all the samples tested that year and after three years of very intense meaty remediation and whatnot they still found it was only like in 1.8% but they still found it in the gene pool it's still in the gene pool it may forever be in the corn gene pool and as we introduce more and more non-gm corn the percentage may go down and down and down but it's still there we can't do a hunt and gather a search and rescue a an elimination we can't do that with current technology to eliminate the gene that was inserted into corn that may be a human allergen that may have caused people to have anaphylactic shock that may still be killing people so this is a kind of pollution that is unlike anything we've seen before and it's a change not only that can affect human health but it can affect the environment because again if there's a change in that crop in that species it gives it a survival advantage that gives it some other aspect it's there forever interacting with millions of other factors in the environment now what do we know about the environmental risks quite a bit roundup is doused on Roundup Ready crops roundup as an antibiotic it kills the beneficial bacteria in the soil it promotes fungal pathogens so more than I think 60 different plant diseases are rising in the u.s. because of roundup because it promotes fungal growth it takes the minerals out of the plants makes them weak which changes the whole ecosystem when because the ecosystem that relies on the nutrients of the plants becomes weakened the roundup can remain stable in the soil for years or decades the longest reported halflife a lot of the time it takes for it to be degraded into 50% was 22 years it's usually not that long but it depends on the nature of the soil it compactified the soil so it creates more runoff this is roundup it has phosphate phosphorous so that help helps create dead zones and that also runs off the Bt toxin can bind with clay and be stable for a long time it can damage the ecosystem of rivers and marine marine ecosystem because it's damages the catice fly and it can tar it can influence the health of non-target beneficial insects the salmon that's genetically engineered and sold in Canada a similar salmon was found that when in in a study in times of low food when they didn't feed it enough because it was growing so fast and was ravenous it would become aggressive and kill and eat its fellow salmon causing complete extinctions in the tank or near extinctions there's so many different areas I mean I could go on and on because what we have here is a technology which changes the nature of the species adds intense amount of poisons and can even change the fertility of the soil sometimes after roundup is sprayed after GMOs are planted then the next generation or the next crop that's plant that's planted does poorly or is unable to grow at all we've heard both situations so it's it's pretty extensive the damage that we've already seen and they want to introduce yet more types of GMOs and so we're looking at potential catastrophes in addition you get these things where these afterthoughts when Bt toxin was introduced in corn they discovered Oh a certain variety kills monarch butterflies so they quietly remove that but then the Roundup Ready crops they spray vast amounts in the Midwest with Roundup it kills the milkweed plant which is where the larvae are died in the milkweeds so now that has resulted in a catastrophic reduction in the monarch butterfly over 90% reduction I'm told and then they find that glyphosate the active ingredient in roundup can cause damage to bees causing to be deaths and inability to navigate back to the hive one research group was studying this and it was bought by Monsanto called biologics so we don't hear about that research anymore from biologics so it's pretty comprehensive and how it can devastate I think the last thing is that because it is an antibiotic we have no idea how important to the microbiome is there are some scientists that talk about the efficacy of herbs and even of salad maybe the microbiome on the leaves more than the actual substance the particular microbiome and I can have a whole discussion about that but the microbiome can be wiped out by antibiotics and the biggest application of antibiotics in the world is round up and glyphosate based herbicides without with an antibiotic that's known to kill beneficial bacteria but not the nasty stuff tell us about the dangers of random roundup damages the fundamental foundations of our health if you look at the charts of diseases rising in the United States more than 30 of them arising in parallel with the increased use of roundup sprayed on GMOs or on the increased acreage of GMOs but roundup in particular is is identified as a likely cause of many of these particular diseases now why is that it key laits minerals making them less available and without proper minerals there's whole metabolic pathways that just shut down they go on strike they do nothing without their cofactor mineral so you have whole shutdown of very important things like the sugar made pathway which produce the precursors to serotonin melatonin and dopamine so now you may have a deficit of important neurotransmitters that affect your mind and your sleep and your pain and your anxiety and maybe schizophrenia and all these are related to in terms of the correlative charts which don't prove anything but now we have plausible causative pathways that exceeds show how roundup and glyphosate may be causing these things so you have the mineral deficiency it's an antibiotic it kills the beneficial bacteria in the soil it might cause a dysbiosis a change in the balance of the bacteria of the body which can lead to numerous diseases it can cause gaps between cells in the body turning our organs and tissues into sponges for toxins in the case of the gut leaky gut leaky gut is linked to a long list of diseases including autism cancer heart disease Alzheimer's Parkinson's autoimmune disease inflammation and allergies it also is a probable class 2a carcinogen and it's linked to many different cancers it also is linked to genotoxicity damage to the DNA and oxidative stress which both can create cancer it is a mitochondrial toxin mitochondria health is related to aging to cancer to all sorts of diseases and it is damaged by round'em it suppresses digestive enzymes it damages the the villi along the intestines it can lead to birth defects there's been a great study on that so it is and also can mess up our hormones including the potentially the balance between testosterone and estrogen which is very important and it's linked to damage to sperm cells in mice to high rates of death in lab animals so we're in a situation where if you look at the nature of this molecule which is unique it's as if it kicks it kicks the foundation out of our health because each of those things that I mentioned from the mineralization to the microbiome to the mitochondria to hormones to neurotransmitters these are the foundational elements of our health and roundup is sprayed on a lot of different crops not just GMOs so that's why eating organic is really important and it round a brisk komm we have a little training there how you can get roundup kicked out of your home owners association golf course school parks cities not just roundup but other toxic herbicides and be replaced by non-toxic cost-benefit cost beneficial alternatives what you see is the importance of the real truth about health confidence when Steven told me he had an idea for a 10-day free conference called the real truth about health I was upset I said who is gonna be coming to the conference for ten days no one has that time but what it's evolved he was a platform for release of videos and you have as many as 300,000 now 3,000 views for a single video so I kept complaining saying I don't think it's a good idea you don't want to bring people from all over the world and have a small audience and no one's gonna be there for 10 days and whatnot but it turns out in this digital age I was wrong because it's actually now a digital platform and it's that for me it's an opportunity to get to connect with people that are on the same subject that I get to see while I'm here so I thank Stephen and the real truth about Health for getting the word out to large numbers even if we don't have thousands of people in the audience here we have thousands of people in the audience there you

Constructing a Hopyard Part 2



my name is Roger anvil and this is part 2 of installing a hops yard for the University of Vermont extension hops research trials and this part I'll explain on how we install our ground anchors and how we spray our aircraft cable for a trellising and how we our system that we use for tightening up our cables our next phase our next part of yard construction will be our planting phase one thing we did is we made this little bracket here to put on our tractor pulls hole digger and what this does is our our anchor will sit in here and we let the tractor turn it and we guide it down and it makes it much easier and trying to screw them in by hand you ready here the standby using a battery-powered impact wrench really saves a lot a lot of time I'd really recommend anybody doing any amount of cabling one of these impacts well we had the option of either renting a telehandler for getting up to the top to put these cables on and we had this old bucket that was left kicking around the farm so Jared that works for me said why don't we just make a platform on it so that we can pick it up and work on our cables so we just took an old crate that held the 250 gallon container and put the container out we welded frame mounted on top and it works excellent for putting upper cables we notice that we mounted some hooks on top and we stretch our cables we use these hooks to as I stated before the hooker cables in and when we're pulling cables from one length of the hop yard to the other we just hook the cables in here and we'll hook them in the top and it works real goods and let the tractor do the work so we aren't pulling it with our hands so it makes it real real easy to work and it seems to be doing a pretty good job one thing that we do after we had got all our poles set and everything is we went through and made sure that our poles were all the same height because you hit ledge once in a while when you're digging holes you can't set the pole in all the ways so as deep as a as we'd like so they're the their up and down when you're traveling your cables on top you want to make sure to get them fairly even so that they're all fairly consistent so we're trying to get sixteen feet high everywhere so we went through and cut all the poles down to where we needed to have them and now that that's all done our next big thing is getting our cables all installed see it's got the right way after we get our cables stretch each each line then we just put two clamps on it two of these clamps fairly easy is just like the ones we use when we put our anchors on the corners or we use our impact wrench just like we did in our on our anchors on the corners we snug them up and we put one more clamp on and we tighten her down with our impact wrench now we have a good connection and we do it all over again this is just a corner pulley that cycle would same thing the lines men use for power lines and just works real good when you're pulling cables because it's easy to get in and out and then we're done we just snug it up by hand first and then we'll pull it tight as we can by him and then when we put our corner anchors in we'll pull it and really draw it real snug this is just a come-along it's used to pull our cables tight set our cables up here like a clamp on it now that we've got our tight just snug her down with the wrench if you're going to work cutting this type of cable you definitely need cable cutters that are designed for cutting cable not a bolt cutter and that's it you

Free Update Content with TwoDollarsTwenty | Cities: Skylines Industries Tutorial Part 7



g'day guys tell us 20 here and welcome back to City skylines industries this is gonna be the last tutorial from me and I'm gonna spend it looking at the new content that comes with the free updates I'm gonna start by checking out the new toll booths which will raise extra revenue for the city however will also create extra congestion on the roads so to avoid this only replacing them around the outskirts of the city you can find the toll booths in the road section under the very own tab and there's four to choose from I'm placing mine on a three lane highway so I'm gonna choose the four lane toll booth and place two going in either direction once I've done that I'm gonna waste my money placing down some trees and then I can actually change the price of the tickets when I click on the building and use the slider to decrease or increase the ticket price another cool feature with the free update is the ability to make buildings historical you can make a building historical by clicking on it and then clicking the historical building button and this would mean the building will continue to level up by won't actually change its appearance I'm gonna do this around my downtown to keep the skyline looking quite prominent and the rest of the buildings much lower down and I'm also gonna do this for buildings that I just like the look of and when I keep that look in the city the last feature I want to talk about is something that is quite interesting and allies within the map theme editor and this feature allows you to create custom name lists for your map theme the really cool thing about this is you can really customize the names of pretty much anything that spawns in your city ranging from industrial buildings to commercial buildings to people to districts you really have a lot of freedom making these names and I think it's going to make for some really interesting and unique map themes down the track but guys that is it for these tutorials I really had a lot of fun exploring the new industries DLC and I just want to say big thanks to Paradox Interactive for asking me to collaborate with them I hope these tutorials are been useful and I look forward to seeing your creations in the near future I'll see you later
