"UN Warned of Major New Food Crisis at Emergency Meeting in Rome" | SEJ

"UN Warned of Major New Food Crisis at Emergency Meeting in Rome" SEJ

The UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) meeting in Rome today was called last month after a heatwave and wildfires in Russia led to a draconian wheat export ban and food riots broke out in Mozambique, killing 13 people. But UN experts will also hear that pension and hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds and large banks who speculate on commodity markets may also be responsible for inflation in food prices being seen across all continents.

Add to it the food to fuel program, then ask how much you can afford and how many people word wide will die again this year?

Dance The Kirsten Gillibrand~Flip Flop

For all those New Yorker's who have a 9 minuet memory and for those who can't remember you and Quomo worked at HUD and brought down America & home owners to there knees.~

Well it's true, she flips and flops like a fish on the deck. What has made matters worst she ran right to Senator Schumer and NYC forgetting about the rest of us. Last night I saw one of her TV campaign commercials, I was not impressed. I'm sure many central and western New Yorkers are  Ohhh and Ahhhing her with the typical , Oh she's cute and smart.
Yea well so what.

If you're into electing pretty faces then you're part of the clueless mass. You bitch about loosing money in your retirement account and blame Wall Street, which in part was there fault. But you forget what caused this depression. People like Gillibrand,Cuomo and yes even the Bush's have not done one damn thing to right decades of wrongs. Wrongs that have stripped the poor and middle class of what little we have.
 Our retirements have been stolen by the corrupt government,union and wall street leaders. These people while they are put on display in one of the government's mock trails will almost always walk away with more money/wealth than most of us will ever have.
 What is akin to a street act monkey show is the way the politicians line up to demand justice & a new law.

I say What The Hell!!

You sat by and watched this go down, you were on the committee, wrote the law then approved the bill to sack American citizens of every penny possible. So last night you have the gall to come around 2 months before your election & blow smoke up my ass and expect me to vote for you.
 Yea right, well here's a pair of flip flops for you to wear on the campain trail so the people can tell where you stand on the real issues

 Welcome to the new line of  Kirsten sports wear!
Get a pair or get out.

Front Page columnist Budd Schroeder will debate well known political blog webmaster, Joseph Illuzzi on the subject, "Should the Second Amendment be repealed?" Mr. Illuzzi's, blog is PoliticsNY.Net and he his well known for his insight on elections and political controversial issues. He believes that civilians should not own firearms.

The program is sponsored by the Judges & Police Conference where Mr. Schroeder is First Vice-President. He is also Chairman of the Board of S.C.O.P.E. Inc. (Shooter's Committee On Political Education) and a member of the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association.

Schroeder believes that the Constitution is correct and that firearms is almost a synonym for freedom. The differences in opinion between the two participants may stem from Mr. Illuzzi's position that guns kill and he is against killing.

Mr. Schroeder has always taken the position that more lives are saved by guns. A gun is nothing more than a tool and murders are caused by people who are criminals. He has often said that the problems of violence and murders are not because there are "too many guns on the street," but rather, too many criminals on the streets.

The debate is designed to shed light without generating heat and to present the pros and cons of gun control. The issue has a long history of having a base in religion, constitutional law, and social issues. It is expected that these issues will be addressed during the debate.

Supreme Court Justice Frank Caruso will be the moderator for this program. The Judges & Police Conference dinners usually restricted to members and guests. For this event, those interested in attending can make reservations without being a member. The deadline for reservations is October 4.

New York DEC Crossbow FAQ's

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

Effective date 2011
Be sure to check DEC’s web-site ( for updates to this FAQ

The Basics
Question: What is the new law, and when was the bill signed?
Answer: During the 2010 Legislative Session, Assembly bill 924-e/Senate bill 6793-b was passed. Governor Paterson signed this bill into law on September 17, 2010. The bill may be read in its entirety by going to and using the bill search feature to look for “A-924-e” or “S-6793-b.”
Question: Since the bill was signed, does this mean it’s in effect during the fall of 2010?
Answer: No. Although the bill is now law, the major changes do not go into effect until February 1, 2011. This means that you cannot use a crossbow until 2011.
Question: Does the bill expire?
Answer: Yes. The bill will expire on December 31, 2012, unless the Legislature and Governor decide to extend the law.
Question: Is a new or separate type of license required to use a crossbow?
Answer: No. You will simply need any of DEC’s licenses that allow big game hunting. If you are using a crossbow during the late muzzleloading or bowhunting seasons, you will need to have the required privileges for those late seasons.

Question: Is a crossbow and a bolt defined in the new law?
Answer: Yes. The crossbow must have a stock with a working safety, and a minimum limb of 17 inches. It must have a minimum peak draw weight of 100 pounds, and a maximum peak draw weight of 200 pounds. The overall length (butt of stock to front of the limbs) must be at least 24 inches. A bolt (the term used for the “arrow” shot from a crossbow) must be at least 14 inches long (excluding the point).

Use of Crossbows

Question: I heard that I may use a crossbow during the early bowhunting season if I am hunting on private land. Is this true?
Answer: No. Crossbows may not be used by anyone during the early bowhunting season.

Question: When can I use a crossbow to hunt?
Answer: Only during the REGULAR firearms seasons in the Northern and Southern Zone, and during the LATE muzzleloading and bowhunting seasons, and starting ONLY in 2011, and continuing until December 31, 2012.

Question: May I use a crossbow during the late bowhunting season?
Answer: Yes. You may use a crossbow during the LATE special seasons (bowhunting and muzzleloading) after the close of the regular season.

Question: I have a note from my doctor regarding an injury that prevents me from using a regular bow. May I use a crossbow during the early bowhunting seasons?
Answer: No. The new law does not allow a disabled person (temporary or permanent) to use a crossbow during the early bowhunting seasons.

Question: I am disabled and I am unable to hold and pull a regular bow. May I use a crossbow?
Answer: No. In the past, you could obtain a special permit to hunt with a longbow (of any type) equipped with a special modification to draw and hold the bow string. The new law allows DEC to adopt regulations to permit the modified longbow. In 2011, DEC will prepare regulations to implement the new law and a special permit will no longer be needed.

Question: I am 70 years old (or older). May I use a crossbow during the early bowhunting seasons?
Answer: No. The new law does not allow a senior hunter to use a crossbow during the early bowhunting seasons.

Question: May I use a crossbow in the bowhunting only areas of New York, such as Westchester County, parts of Albany and Monroe counties, and Suffolk County)?
Answer: No. However, you may use a crossbow in Suffolk County during the January firearms season for deer.

Question: May I use a crossbow during the early muzzleloading seasons in the Northern Zone?
Answer: No.

Question: May I use a crossbow to hunt small game, such as wild turkeys?
Answer: No. Crossbows may only be used to hunt big game (deer and bear).

Question: May I use a crossbow at night?
Answer: No.

Question: Are the restrictions on the use of crossbows the same as a firearm or bow?
Answer: Yes. A crossbow may not be loaded in or on a motor vehicle, it may not be discharged within 500 feet of an occupied building or school, it may not be discharged across a highway, or in areas where the discharge is presently prohibited for a bow or firearm.

Question: What tags would a crossbow hunter use to tag their deer?
 Answer: During the regular season, a crossbow hunter could use a Deer Management Permit (DMP) or their regular big game tag (antlered deer only). During the late bowhunting and muzzleloading season, crossbow hunters could use a DMP or their special season bow and muzzleloading tags (either-sex or antlerless only). Additionally, crossbow hunters could use their unfilled regular season tag for deer of either sex during the late bow or muzzleloading season.

Question: Are Junior Hunters allowed to use a crossbow to hunt deer or bear?
Answer: Yes, once they complete the crossbow safety training.

Question: What kind of broadhead may I use on my crossbow?
Answer: You must use the same type of broadhead lawful for hunting big game with a longbow. The broadhead must have two or more cutting eges, it may not be barbed, and it must be at least 7/8 inches wide across the cutting surfaces.

Special Training Requirements

Question: Are there any special training requirements before I can use a crossbow to hunt deer or bear?
Answer: Yes. The new law requires you to complete training in the safe use of a crossbow.

Question: Where can I obtain this training?
Answer: DEC will develop a training program for new hunters using the existing hunter education program. For current hunters, DEC will develop on-line and home study materials on crossbow safety. DEC will announce when these materials are available.

Question: Are Junior Hunters allowed to use a crossbow to hunt deer or bear?
Answer: Yes, once they complete the crossbow safety training.

• You cannot use a crossbow in 2010. You must wait until 2011.

• You may only use crossbows during a regular firearms season or during the late muzzleloading and late bowhunting seasons.

• There are no special provisions for the use of crossbows for disabled persons or hunters 70 years old (or older).

• The existing law about the use of “modified longbows” will be implemented differently. Instead of a special permit, DEC will adopt regulations to allow the use of modified longbows.

• This law expires on December 31, 2012, unless the Legislature and Governor agree to an extension.

• DEC believes that crossbows should be available to all hunters during all seasons in which other bowhunting equipment is allowed. In this manner, crossbows may meaningfully increase hunters’ ability to enjoy the bowhunting experience, and can play a valuable role in deer population management.

Jill Rowland 28th district

Jill Rowland is running for congress in the 28th district against Louise Slaughter. As you might expect she is at a great disadvantage in funds to wage her fight for this office.

If you live in the 28th and you oppose Louise Slaughter you should give as much as you can afford to give. If you don't live in the 28th, I ask you to also give to Jill's campaign.
Don't allow Louise Slaughter to have another free ride to reelection.

Send donations to:Jill Rowland for Congress Committee, PO Box 87, Buffalo, NY 14202

Name the squash

All 3 are the same just different stages.

OK, So I planted these seeds thinking they were a greek squash. I cut one off last month thinking it may have been a mellon. Nope its a squash of some sort.

Here are a few picks. They start out yellow and round and the large one pictured is now more of a yellow/orange. Has a slight rib like a pumpkin. I have no seeds labled with this variety.

Thanks BPB
