[Webinar] Understanding the EU Legislation on Food Contact Materials
Food undergoes an extensive process of production, processing, storage and preparation along its way from the farm to your table. Materials and articles that come into contact with food at any point within this process are known as food contact materials (FCMs). Companies that create these materials or articles are subject to specific requirements under the EU’s Food Contact Materials legislation. Assent’s Director of Compliance Programs, James Calder, discusses the EU legislation, what types of materials and articles are in scope, and what actions companies must take in order to comply with this law. In this webinar, you will learn: -What is the EU legislation on food contact materials -What materials and articles are in scope -What is required of companies to comply with the legislation -… and more!

What do we mean by food contact materials?
Food contact materials are materials that come into contact with food, such as bottles, cans, cartons, knives, forks, cups and plates. When these materials make contact with food, some chemical substances contained in them might be transferred. So how do we prevent consumers from being exposed to harm when they unwrap their food or open a bottle? An EFSA scientist explains.

Is Your Fleece Jacket Polluting The Oceans?
New research shines the spotlight on a new plastic pollution menace -- microfibers. TEACHERS: Get your students in the discussion on KQED Learn, a safe place for middle and high school students to investigate controversial topics and share their voices. https://learn.kqed.org/topics/ By 2050, the World Economic Forum predicts that the amount of plastic in the oceans will outweigh ALL the fish. When you hear “plastic” pollution, you might picture six-pack rings wrapped around seagulls or beaches littered with plastic bottles. But now, researchers are discovering a new menace -- microfibers. They’re tiny strands of synthetic fibers. ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and investigates the research behind controversial and trending topics in the news. Hosted by Myles Bess. *NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY* SUBSCRIBE by clicking the RED BUTTON above. Follow us on Instagram @kqedabovethenoise Microfibers are a type of plastic pollution known as microplastics. Microplastics are teeny tiny bits of plastic that are smaller than 5 mm -- which is about the size of a grain of rice. They typically come from larger pieces of plastic that have been broken down over time, or from plastic microbeads found in exfoliating face washes. Most microfiber pollution comes from the synthetic clothing that many of us LOVE to wear -- think fleece jackets and yoga pants. But this comfort and fashion has a cost. Each time synthetic fabrics are washed, those tiny microfibers shed. Washing a typical polyester fleece can release thousands of microfibers that can travel from the washing machine to the local water treatment plant, where they can slip by filters and enter rivers, lakes, and oceans. And from there, fish and other marine life are eating the microfibers, which may leach harmful toxins. Microfiber research is pretty new. It didn’t really start until 2011. But since then, researchers have been finding microfibers EVERYWHERE. They’ve been found in tap water in dozens of countries, including the U.S. A German study found microfibers in all 24 beer brands they tested. Researchers in Paris even discovered microfibers falling from the air, meaning we could be BREATHING them in on a daily basis. What are microplastics? Small plastic pieces less than five millimeters long which can be harmful to our ocean and aquatic life. What is plastic made of? Plastics are made from oil. Oil is a carbon-rich raw material, and plastics are large carbon-containing compounds. They're large molecules called polymers, which are composed of repeating units of shorter carbon-containing compounds called monomers.

Buy products from outside India - how much custom duty to pay, taxes, fines and more
Things you should know when shopping from International website (अंतर्राष्ट्रीय वेबसाइट से खरीदारी). When buying from international website you need to get product imported into India, you may or may not need to pay custom duty. This video will give you a better idea what you should do and what you should not do. How to buy handsets and other electronic devices from Chinese online stores, and here is what you should know. Now before you plan to go ahead with the purchase do note that there is a minor risk, it is with reference to the device you order. For example you might face issues with the phone you bought or it does not start at all, in such a case sending the device back / after sales support will not be that easy. But in most cases you will get a perfectly working phone, but yes keep in mind there is this small risk. You should also check the terms and conditions from the site you are buying. There are two ways to order you can either go for the express shipping or ordinary registered post. The express shipping is costlier but in the end the shipping cost + custom duty comes up to the same as normal shipping, though better to use express shipping as it delivers faster. Now avoid using gift / lower invoice value especially for mobile phones. It is better to be honest and if possible ask the seller to attach a screen shot of the product with the actual price. I have used both ordinary post and express shipping and here are my experiences. Ordinary registered Post This is cheaper takes a lot of time and the custom duty is always higher, better to avoid it for high cost products (over Rs. 7000). Express shipping This will cost you extra, its faster and the custom duty is comparatively lower. In general the extra charges i.e. shipping + customs will come to near about the same for both express / ordinary post. Some users / sellers suggest to ship the handset with lower price tag like $30 or under so as to avoid the custom duty for such devices. However it will all depend on your luck if you are lucky you will not have to pay any duty, but if you are not, you will end up paying the actual duty + in some cases extra fine that will be much, much higher will cost you 2x or more the amount you spend on your phone. How much custom duty you need to pay? Well you can check it on dutycalculator.com but do note that every time the duty will be different, depending on the custom official inspecting your device. Just to give you an idea. I have paid Rs. 4,000 for a Rs. 7,000 device (using ordinary post), at times Rs. 900 for a Rs. 8,000 device (using DHL). And recently Rs. 6,200 for 2 smartphones totalling to $320 from China using DHL post. Also better to attach screen shot for device + price from the seller website as proof. And guess what I got the OnePlus One from USA (a long time back) – $349, that time I paid Rs. 3,420 for custom + shipping, Customs Duty was Rs. 1,573. It is safe to assume that for a 160$ handset from China you will end up paying anywhere from Rs. 1000 to Rs. 3000 total custom duty. Where do you pay the custom duty? If you have ordered it from normal post you will need to pay it to the postman. And if you have used express shipping you will have to pay to the courier guy at the time of delivery. Popular Websites Pandawill, aliexpress, gearbest, coolcool, banggood.com, dx etc. Which Shipping service to use for shipping into India For high value products say 50$ and over better use DHL or Fedex. I know these shipping services cost extra, but they are far cheaper than the EMS Speed Post services. If you use EMS shipping in case of custom verification you will have to visit personally or via your agent/authorized person, you will not only be wasting your time but also end up paying much higher amount, it is cheaper to leave the package there. Just avoid EMS at all cost, pathetic services, go with DHL or Fedex they are 1000 times better, cheaper and honest (as long you are honest). Also note for EMS dutiable articles, intended for personal use, imported by post or air are restricted to Rs. 2000, anything above that and you will have to pay duty + fine on full amount, they will also calculate shipping, so avoid EMS, period. Check the image below – it is the reason why most people fall into the trap, they think importing goods from EMS/normal post is free and most free shipping use this option. Instead of putting a board outside the custom office saying “do not pay bribe/ report bribe” it would be better if they put up rules and regulations and educate people regarding the rules of EMS/ import. Indian EMS rule If you get called you will need to pay almost the same cost that you spend. Problem is most people don’t really know how EMS works and it is not a good option for importing goods over 30$ for personal use. It looks cheaper but it is not, and also the primary reason for corruption.

The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy
The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system. A Third Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things embedded across society and the environment. This 21st century smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life. But with climate change now ravaging the planet, it needs to happen fast. Change of this magnitude requires political will and a profound ideological shift.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

Jeremy Rifkin: "The Zero Marginal Cost Society" | Talks at Google
In The Zero Marginal Cost Society, New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism. Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a technological revolution that might bring marginal costs to near zero, making goods and services priceless, nearly free, and abundant, and no longer subject to market forces. Now, a formidable new technology infrastructure—the Internet of things (IoT)—is emerging with the potential of pushing large segments of economic life to near zero marginal cost in the years ahead. Rifkin describes how the Communication Internet is converging with a nascent Energy Internet and Logistics Internet to create a new technology platform that connects everything and everyone. Billions of sensors are being attached to natural resources, production lines, the electricity grid, logistics networks, recycling flows, and implanted in homes, offices, stores, vehicles, and even human beings, feeding Big Data into an IoT global neural network. Prosumers can connect to the network and use Big Data, analytics, and algorithms to accelerate efficiency, dramatically increase productivity, and lower the marginal cost of producing and sharing a wide range of products and services to near zero, just like they now do with information goods. Rifkin concludes that capitalism will remain with us, albeit in an increasingly streamlined role, primarily as an aggregator of network services and solutions, allowing it to flourish as a powerful niche player in the coming era. We are, however, says Rifkin, entering a world beyond markets where we are learning how to live together in an increasingly interdependent global Collaborative Commons. --macmillan.com About the Author: Jeremy Rifkin is the bestselling author of twenty books on the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment. He has been an advisor to the European Union for the past decade. Mr. Rifkin also served as an adviser to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Jose Socrates of Portugal, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain, and Prime Minister Janez Janša of Slovenia, during their respective European Council Presidencies, on issues related to the economy, climate change, and energy security. Mr. Rifkin is a senior lecturer at the Wharton School's Executive Education Program at the University of Pennsylvania where he instructs CEOs and senior management on transitioning their business operations into sustainable Third Industrial Revolution economies. Mr. Rifkin holds a degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a degree in international affairs from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

Characterizing FDA’s Approach to Benefit-Risk Assessment throughout the Medical Product Life Cycle
Following the sixth authorization of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA VI), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has committed to improving the implementation and communication of its benefit-risk assessment framework. In FY 2020, FDA plans to publish draft guidance on benefit-risk assessment of new drugs and biologics. When finalized, the guidance will provide drug sponsors and other stakeholders with a clearer understanding of how considerations on a drug’s benefits versus risks factor into FDA’s regulatory decisions throughout the drug development life-cycle, including premarket and postmarket phases. Stakeholders’ perspectives and experiences regarding the benefit-risk framework are important to FDA’s guidance development and to FDA’s communication and implementation of the framework. Accordingly, the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy—under a cooperative agreement with FDA—is convening a public meeting to discuss: 1) FDA’s planned benefit-risk assessment guidance; 2) activities that occur in pre-market development that best inform FDA’s benefit-risk assessment; 3) effectively communicating benefit-risk assessment information; and 4) using benefit-risk assessment to inform FDA and sponsor decision-making in the post-marketing setting.

Ex CIA Spook Robert Steele on Open Source Everything: Ethics is an Operating System
https://www.singularityweblog.com/robert-steele-open-source-everything/ Robert Steele is a very interesting person indeed: in the 1980s Robert was a clandestine CIA agent who believed not only in secrecy but also in Reagan’s right-wing politics and trickle down economics. Today Steele is the author of The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust. So how does a former spy and CIA intelligence professional, and Marine Corps infantry officer, become an honorary hacker, open source evangelist and the top Amazon reviewer devoted to non-fiction? Well, I invited Steele on my Singularity 1on1 podcast to ask him about that, as well as a few other things. During our 82 min discussion with Robert Steele we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: whether humanity is making progress or not; failed states, regime change and ISIS; The Open-Source Everything Manifesto; smart cities and nature; shifting from secrecy to open source; producing more actionable intelligence than the entire US intelligence complex; collecting systems versus sharing and processing systems; capitalism, the singularity and true cost economics; industrialization, education and being a sheep; open source everything as a way to unleash our entrepreneurial capabilities; polarization and the preconditions for revolution; panarchy as extreme democracy and informed self-governance; ethics and integrity… My three favorite quotes that I will take away from this conversation with Robert Steele are: “The chasm, the gap between people with power and people with knowledge is now catastrophic.” “Open source intelligence is the application of the craft of intelligence, legally and ethically, to create smart cities, smart nations, smart companies and smart citizens. It’s about not being a sheep.” “Ethics is about the truth. And transparency. And trust. Ethics is how a civilization hands on the lessons of history, from one generation to the next. Ethics is the cultural code for getting the most out of any group and any situation with the least amount of damage and the least amount of waste. So ethics is an operating system.” Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/HpW1/

10 Most Environmentally Damaging Industries!
10 Most Environmentally Damaging Industries! From industrial waste to acid rain…stay tuned to number 1 to find out 10 of the most polluting industries in the world. This top 10 brought to you by Zero2Hero!! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu Click here to see 10 Mansions That No One Wants To Buy!! https://youtu.be/XASGVgYmRdI Number 10: Agriculture. There can be no denying that pesticides and other chemicals used by the agricultural industry pollute the environment. Studies continue to show the negative impact that these chemicals can have on local wildlife and water sources. There is no one single cause of agriculture pollution. Pesticides and fertilizers, contaminated water, soil erosion and sedimentation, and livestock diet and waste requirements can cause health related issues and have an effect on aquatic animals. In 2016, the Guardian covered a report which stated that farming was the biggest cause of air pollution in Europe. The study at the heart of the 2016 Guardian article takes it a step further by highlighting the industries impact on air pollution. When the nitrogen compounds are mixed with air already polluted from other industries, they combine to form solid particles that can stick in the fine lung tissue of children and adults, causing breathing difficulties, and impaired lung and heart function…eventually leading premature expiration. Number 9: Industrial Dumpsites. It would be hard to put an exact number on the number of industrial dumpsites that exist in the world. Some countries are less forthcoming about the number of the large-scale dumpsites they have. Nevertheless, the polluting impact of these sites are well-known. Both open dumpsites and municipal landfills are used around the world, often containing scrap metal, agricultural waste, hospital and household waste, and chemical waste from industrial processes. The mixture of toxic substances and decaying organic material can impact the soil quality of the areas surrounding a landfill site. Add rain to the mix and the result is a serious contamination of the local ground water. As a result, they are also the last place anyone would want to live, but unfortunately, as a 2017 study brought to light, around 15 million people live and work within huge municipal dump sites around the world. Many of these people who are born and raised in these environments only have an average life expectancy of around 35 years, and many face multiple health issues associated to pollution from dumpsites. Number 8: Fashion Industry. Before we talk about the fashion industy’s environmental impact, take a moment to like this video and join the Zero2Hero community by using the buttons below! Fashion has been the focus of a lot of attention recently. News articles, websites and blogs have featured pieces about pollution in the fashion industry. In comparison to some of the other entries in this list, fashion is the most unlikely entry on this list. Nevertheless, ‘fast fashion’, is has having a considerable impact on the environment, and in particular, through water pollution. Since the year 2000, global clothing production has more than doubled in size and, with thousands of new clothes lines a year, consumers are constantly encouraged to buy the newest item. A shocking amount of this ends up in landfill sites. The production and usage of the clothes also causes pollution. The production of clothes requires land for factories, cotton production for material, water and fuel for manufacturing, and there is the potential for lots of toxic chemicals for dyes and so on. Every time we wash them, thousands of plastic fibbers go down the drain and into the rivers, oceans, and according to some recent findings, even into the food chain. Number 7: Dye Industry. In close association with fashion, the dye industry is also a significant polluter. We find dyes in paints, textiles, inks, paper and plastics, which we all use every day. One of the main polluting factors of the dye industries is water pollution which, in turn, has an impact on the local environment and population. The water waste from dye production carries a host of different chemicals. Chromium, lead, mercury, arsenic, as well as a host of other pollutants enter water sources after being directly dumped into surface water without treatment. It won’t take you long online to find photographs from alleged dye factories that run their waste directly into rivers, often causing a visible change in the water. Even without visible change, unchecked dumping of dye water waste has a massive impact on the local environments the factories are based in. Number 6: Product Manufacturing. As the developed world gets greedier and everyone else is catching up, more and more consumer products are being created to satisfy an ever-increasing need. This in turn creates a demand for product manufacturing.

Controversy over Genetic Engineering in Agriculture:  The good, the bad, and the righteous
Today's farmers feed more than 7 billion people, and we can trace much of this bounty and efficiency to traditional agricultural technologies, especially plant breeding, fertilizers, and chemical management of soil and weeds — major ingredients of the first Green Revolution. However, population growth and increased demands for higher quality food will require large improvements in agricultural productivity going forward, while we minmize the undesired environmental and social effects of more intense farming systems. Direct modification of DNA, or genetic engineering, is a new tool for plant breeding that has spread at unprecedented speed over the last two decades. However, it has also come up against strong social and legal resistance in many countries, making its future significance as a tool to promote productivity and sustainability uncertain. At the Oct. 14 Corvallis Science Pub, Steve Strauss, director of Oregon State University's Outreach in Biotechnology program, will discuss the pros and cons of gene technology for agriculture. He will review what the technology actually is, how it is similar and different from conventional breeding, and how it has impacted agriculture to date. He will also discuss diverse sources of the controversy surrounding it, including the numerous myths and confusing science that pervade the online world. "Gene technology is a valuable tool, not a silver bullet," Strauss says. "It can do a lot, but it must be used with due caution and as part of integrated, ecologically guided management systems for sustained benefit." He also argues that it appears capable of providing major humanitarian benefits to the poor by improving nutrition and food security. "Despite the fears and growing legal barriers, the stakes in this debate are too high to turn away from. We must find socially acceptable ways to move forward." Strauss is a distinguished professor in the Oregon State College of Forestry and a Fellow of the Leopold Leadership Program at Stanford University. He is also the director of the Tree Biosafety and Genomics Research Cooperative at OSU that conducts research on mitigation of risks from genetic engineering in forestry.

The occurrence of two or more cases of a similar illnesses resulting from the ingestion of a common food is known as a food-borne disease outbreak. This includes a number of routines that should be followed to avoid potential health hazards. In this way food safety often overlaps with food defense to prevent harm to consumers. The tracks within this line of thought are safety between industry and the market and then between the market and the consumer. In considering industry to market practices, food safety considerations include the origins of food including the practices relating to food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, as well as policies on biotechnology and food and guidelines for the management of governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods. In considering market to consumer practices, the usual thought is that food ought to be safe in the market and the concern is safe delivery and preparation of the food for the consumer. Food can transmit pathogens which can result in the illness or death of the person or other animals. The main mediums are bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus (which is Latin for mushroom). It can also serve as a growth and reproductive medium for pathogens. In developed countries there are intricate standards for food preparation, whereas in lesser developed countries there are fewer standards and less enforcement of those standards. Another main issue is simply the availability of adequate safe water, which is usually a critical item in the spreading of diseases. In theory, food poisoning is 100% preventable. However this cannot be achieved due to the number of persons involved in the supply chain, as well as the fact that pathogens can be introduced into foods no matter how many precautions are taken. The five key principles of food hygiene, according to WHO, are: Prevent contaminating food with pathogens spreading from people, pets, and pests. Separate raw and cooked foods to prevent contaminating the cooked foods. Cook foods for the appropriate length of time and at the appropriate temperature to kill pathogens. Store food at the proper temperature. Use safe water and safe raw materials.

How can a farm survive and educate a city: Mirto Fifa at TEDxKalamata
http://www.tedxkalamata.com/ About the speaker: Mirto Fifa is a visual artist, educator, farmer, creator and manager of the environmental artistic projects "Re;Think Project" and "Farma Fifa Permaculture", and activist on social and environmental issues in Kalamata, (founder of kalamatafreespace network and co-founder of Cyclists of Kalamata group, etc.) Born in Kalamata, Mirto studied Pedagogic at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens and Dance Studies at Laban London Centre. She has collaborated with various dance theater companies (ADLIB, Nomass, Oktana, etc.) as a performer and video artist. Her video art work has been presented in Greek video-art festivals, such as Pixel Dance Festival '08, Action Field Kodra '09, Eco-festival '09, Terra Mania, etc. Also her photography art work has been presented among others at Athens Photo Festival '08, at the exhibition "New Greek Photographers". As a teacher, she has collaborated with the E. Kostopoulou Foundation and the State School of Dance. Mirto has written articles for and co-operates with the local press and Internet magazines, such as "Echomove Magazine". A very important element of her artistic work is the De-centralization of the artistic process and the interaction of art with issues of the local community. Her work often focuses on the relationship between contemporary man and nature. Since 2009, when she moved to Kalamata and personally experienced the environmental problems of the city, she created Re:Think project , an environmental and artistic multitask project on reuse, DIY crafts and creative recycling. The project organizes exhibitions, events in public places, original DIY workshops and the launch of a neighborhood compost program in collaboration with the municipality of Kalamata. At the same time, being profoundly interested in the protection of local biodiversity and having lived and experienced since childhood life in a family farm, she believes in and promotes the cultural, educational and cognitive value of agriculture as a holistic way of living everyday life for contemporary man. All of the above led to her next project, the natural and traditional agricultural farm "Farma Fifa Permaculture". A per-urban farm of exquisite natural beauty, Fifa Farm is one of the oldest farms in the area. The main aims of the farm include the propagation of traditional natural agriculture, the creation of a bank of local traditional seeds, its development through "Seed-keepers Anonymous" (namely a net of volunteers working on the preservation and free exchange of old traditional seeds) and wider research on everyday issues of self-management. Open to visitors, the farm is the base of Project Re:Think and hosts workshops and events on general subjects of ecological agriculture, composting and DIY, offering at the same time educational programmes to schools and organizations. About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The Ethical Foundation of Addressing Scientific Conflict of Interest
This is part of the Rock Ethics Institute's Research Ethics Lecture Series. 'Conflict of interest' is embedded in many areas of public ethics. Certain enactments named for their ethical content, such as the U.S. Ethics in Government Act, have sections devoted to 'conflict of interest,' and the legal community, government officials, financial organizations, and many news organizations have strict guidelines on such conflicts. Yet, the term is rather new to the scientific and medical research communities. Dr. Krimsky explores the ethical foundations of conflict of interest (COI) in the sciences by investigating the concepts of stewardship, transparency, consequentialism, and scientific integrity. This framework is used to inform the current guidelines on conflicts of interest issued by the National Institutes of Health.

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Ionizing radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy (radiation) capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds (ionization) in the targeted food. The radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated electrically. This treatment is used to improve food safety by extending product shelf-life (preservation), reducing the risk of foodborne illness, delaying or eliminating sprouting or ripening, by sterilization of foods, and as a means of controlling insects and invasive pests. Food irradiation primarily extends the shelf-life of irradiated foods by effectively destroying organisms responsible for spoilage and foodborne illness and inhibiting sprouting. Although consumer perception of foods treated with irradiation is more negative than those processed by other means, because people imagine that the food is radioactive or mutated, all independent research, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have confirmed irradiation to be safe.Food irradiation is permitted by over 60 countries, with about 500,000 metric tons of food annually processed worldwide. The regulations that dictate how food is to be irradiated, as well as the food allowed to be irradiated, vary greatly from country to country. In Austria, Germany, and many other countries of the European Union only dried herbs, spices, and seasonings can be processed with irradiation and only at a specific dose, while in Brazil all foods are allowed at any dose.

Objects (Still) Matter: A Forum on Curating Beyond Fine Arts
MA Curatorial Practice and MA Design Research, Writing and Criticism present a panel discussion on the questions inherent in curating contemporary design—from topics to objects and from sponsors to venue—that relate to social, political and economic issues. What values are implied by curatorial choices? What due diligence is required? What value is assigned through selection, display and promotion of objects? In the age of crowdfunding and self-publishing, what compromises, if any, are acceptable? This panel addresses how the act of curating design today creates ripple effects that extend far beyond any one exhibition or collection. Additionally, it will address the ethical responsibility and political performance of design as a mass phenomenon in relation to the issues of display. Panelists include MFA Products of Design Chair Allan Chochinov; Deputy Director, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian National Design Museum, Brooke Hodge; Founder, Moss Bureau, and MA Design Research, Writing and Criticism faculty member Murray Moss; and Designer and Founder, David Weeks Studio, David Weeks. Moderated by MA Design Research, Writing and Criticism Co-Chair Molly Heintz and MA Curatorial Practice Director of Curatorial Research Jovana Stokic.
