UN: Eat more insects;
good for you, good for world

Associated Press, by Frances D´Emilio

Original Article

Posted By:Rafter, 5/13/2013 2:30:47 PM

ROME — The latest weapon in the U.N.´s fight against hunger, global warming and pollution might be flying by you right now. Edible insects are being promoted as a low-fat, high-protein food for people, pets and livestock. According to the U.N., they come with appetizing side benefits: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and livestock pollution, creating jobs in developing countries and feeding the millions of hungry people in the world. Some edible insect information in bite-sized form: WHO EATS INSECTS NOW? Two billion people do, largely in Asia, Africa and Latin America, the Rome-based U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said Monday

Comments:
Think this´ll fly... ?
My best joke on this probably cannot be posted here.
Gnat gonna happen.
CAUTION: This story is not for WASPs.
And don´t let bee-keepers see it; they´ll get hives.
Bottom line: insects use only one fourth as much food
to produce a kilo of edible meat compared to cows.
According to MOOOOve on dot (j/k) What a buzzkill...

I do believe that this is a classic case of how leading by example is the key to eventual acceptance of insects as a viable food source. How about having the entire 2013 catering budget for any and all of the UN´s gold plated events feature only invertebrate selections from around the world, and that all UN Staff are required to eat insects exclusively breakfast, lunch and dinner!!! The use of insects as food should make the gutting of the UN´s entertainment budget by 80 % quite doable. In addition, all parking fines owed by UN Diplomats and their staff will be paid immediately, or all foreign aid to those countries in arrears will be forfeited!!!

For the first time in two decades, Texas is electing itself a new governor, making the contest — featuring liberal heroine Wendy Davis — one of the marquee races of this election year.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
