Following the tragic Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut the Gannett’s Jounal News from White Plains, New York posted a map of pistol permit holders in the counties of Westchester and Rockland. As should be expected, this invasion of personal privacy did not sit well with many others including pro gun enthusiasts and supporters of the Second and Forth Amendments to our Constitution.
The tables were turned by Robert Cox who posted a map of Journal News employees in the article shown below.
Map: Where are the Journal News employees in your neighborhood?
By Robert Cox
The map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area. Each dot represents an individual Journal News employee — a reporter, editor or staffer. The data does not include freelancers — reporters or photographers — which can be hired without being an employee. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location is a responsible reporter or editor, just that they are a reporter or editor.
Data for all categories is included, but certain information is not available on an individual basis.
To create the map, Talk of the Sound submitted Google searches for the names and addresses of all Journal News employees in the New York Tri-State area. By state law, the information is public record.
Readers are still putting together records and could not immediately provide some data. The map will be updated when that data is released.
Strong pressure has been and continues to be applied to the Mexican Federal Government to approve the use of Genetically Engineered Organism´s or GMO´s.
Monsanto is the largest GMO corporation leading and placing pressure on the Government.
Mexico so far, has resisted strongly the use of GMO planting within its borders. However, pressure has increased dramatically since the recent presidential elections, indicated Elena Alvarez-Buylla, investigator for the Ecological Institute at the UNAM and president of the Union of Scientists Committed to Society or UCSS.
“It is regrettable that the Mexican authorities have yielded to the demands of this corporation, and have done so during the electoral process as well as the spring – summer crop season, withholding any announcement and approving three new permits to plant transgenic corn in its pilot phase for Monsanto in northern Tamaulipas.” Alvarez-Buyulla informed reporters.

In the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression in which millions of Americans have lost jobs we can expect even more competition in the employment marketplace.
According to AP sources, President Obama will speak today about a new administration policy that will grant immunity from deportation for some 800,000 immigrants who have entered the country illegally.
The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.
The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation.
Under the administration plan, illegal immigrants will be immune from deportation if they were brought to the United States before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have no criminal history, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED, or served in the military. They also can apply for a work permit that will be good for two years with no limits on how many times it can be renewed.
Opponents of the new policy argue that the move will not only add pressure to an already struggling economy, education and healthcare system, but will likely strengthen Obama’s position in the upcoming Presidential election by adding hundreds of thousands of new voters sentimental to democrat candidates.
While it is illegal to vote in a Presidential election unless you are a U.S. citizen, the only thing a would-be voter needs to cast a ballot is proof of residency (in most States, not even that is required), which is easily obtainable once immunity or legal status is granted.
