Monsanto, California Battle Over Listing Glyphosate as a Carcinogen

Next week, Monsanto and California's Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) will face off over the agency's plan to list the herbicide glyphosate as a carcinogen. The outcome of this legal battle could have major ramifications to California's long-established regulatory program.

It all started back in Sept. 2015 when the OEHHA issued a notice of intent to list the chemical as known to the state to cause cancer under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as Proposition 65. The OEHHA determined that glyphosate met the criteria under the "Labor Code" listing mechanism, which directs the office to add a chemical or substance to the Prop 65 list of known carcinogens if it meets certain classifications by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). The France-based IARC concluded that glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A)" in March 2015.

The OEHHA has received more than 9,300 written comments in response to the listing. The comments are mostly from individuals and groups supporting the proposed listing. Monsanto, chemical producers and industry groups have also submitted comments opposing the listing. The public comment period is now closed, and OEHHA has yet to take final agency action on the listing.

Nina Turner Gives Rousing Sermon at MLK Jr. Monument

On a grey Saturday afternoon, former Bernie Sanders surrogate Nina Turner addressed an assembled crowd in front of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., calling on them to act in the spirit of the civil rights leader and take inspiration from his struggle for the fight ahead.

Sounding an awful lot like a reverend herself, Turner inspired all who listened with encouragements about the future, spreading a message of unity. She called on progressives to come together, with one hand reaching forward to climb above the struggle, with the other hand reaching behind, to pull those still struggling further skyward.

To Turner, though we feel we are facing dark times ahead, it is just a reminder of where we have been.

“The mountain might be higher, but we’ve been here before. The valley may be lower, but we’ve been here before.”

Donald Trump flip flops, asks DC National Guard chief to stay past inauguration, but chief refuses

this is from Palmer Report which is not a news report but Bill Palmer has been right on on lots of stories. If anyone has anything from official news, post it please. TMP posted that the head of the Washington DC would be fired the minute Trump was President. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/dc-national-guard-chief-removed-inauguration Trump Orders DC National Guard Chief To Leave In Middle Of Inaugural Ceremony

In a bizarre move, Donald Trump has demanded that the commanding officer of the Washington, D.C. National Guard resign from his post in the middle of the Inauguration ceremony, even though the general will be in the middle of helping oversee the event's security, the Washington Post reported on Friday

Palmer reports Major General will leave the moment Trump is president:

One day after the Donald Trump administration announced that the head of the Washington DC National Guard would be fired in the middle of the inauguration at the precise moment Trump was sworn in, prompting a firestorm of controversy and questions about what might truly be behind the move, the story has taken yet another turn. In the wake of the backlash, the Trump team has now asked Major General Errol R. Schwartz to stay on for an extra few days after the inauguration. But even that has now backfired.

Schwartz is now refusing Donald Trump’s request to stay on, and has decided to go ahead and vacate his post the minute Trump is sworn in, as he’d originally been told he would have to. The Major General’s reasoning? According to the Washington Post, he had already finished “packing up his office and notified his staff” of his impending exit.

What to wear to a protest march

Thousands are expected to come to Washington DC on January 21st to march on the first day of incoming President Donald Trump’s administration. As someone who lives in the area and attended rallies and inaugurations at this time of year I can tell you it’s going to be cold, you’re going to be on your feet for a long while, and basic necessities like bathrooms and bottled water are few and far between. What’s a woman to wear when sending a message to the government that women’s rights are human rights?

Love this: John Lewis's constituents post pictures of their houses on Twitter-

Georgia 5th district - WE DO NOT LIVE IN A SLUM - Link has lots of photos

Trump trolled by John Lewis’s constituents after insulting their district as ‘horrible’ and ‘crime ridden’

While others on Twitter ripped into Trump for attacking the civil rights hero, Lewis’s constituents in Georgia tweeted photos of the supposedly “horrible and falling apart community,” at the behest of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Are you a resident of John Lewis’ #fifthdistrict? Tweet us pictures of where you live,” the paper tweeted.

What followed were pictures of what Donald Trump would have his followers believe was a hellhole.
