Hey Mike, stop the piano, turn the auto tune off, turn your camera phones off. what I want you to do is just run the video that everyone’s talking about where I so called scream at somebody and everything. I want you to run that right since this is such big media press news and obvious shit where you try to demonize people. It’s like, “Welcome to today’s news ladies and gentlemen, we got Americans getting killed on TV, kids getting killed every weekend in Chicago, we have unarmed people being killed by police officers, and we have Kanye West buying ice cream—and also that squirrel can jet ski.”You know it makes you just WANT TO reflect on the things that are a little more sensationalized than others. I want to take this platform. If I didn’t have this last concert maybe I would have tweeted or something. Maybe I would have put a statement with a publicist, but I can talk directly to you, my fans, because they got this thing where they want the masses, the people who have never even heard one of my albums to somehow read a headline that reads negative and to think I’m a bad person or something. But the thing is, I’m not judging anybody, but I’m going to tell you who I am: I’m a married Christian man.If you take someone that can go from being a rock star across the globe, pick one woman, raise a family which anyone that is here that is married or is in a relationship knows that there is enough things working against you. What I’m saying is, you’ve got like 12 years that we’ve put in positive music. How many people here ever heard one of my songs on their way to work or they heard it and it made them feel better? And in these songs that made them feel better, don’t I say offensive shit here and there? Oh so wait a second, that’s like my brand. I curse and I say like really offensive—wait a second—that’s why when I did “Runaway” earlier I said, “I sent this bitch a picture of my dick” what did ya’ll think when you heard that? It’s not G rated. It’s rap fucking music. It’s real music. it’s real expression. This is real artistry.An artist’s career doesn’t happen in the cycle of one week of news an artist’s career happens in a lifetime and if you’re a true artist you’re willing to die for what you believe in, and I don’t know if you feel like this, but do you get this feeling after the 10, 11, 12 years—does it seem in anyway that I might just be a true artist? I heard it’s going to the Today show, I’m not sure if I keep up with the news but if Michael Strahan is still at GMA, if it goes to The View, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, I don’t know wherever y’all send. If y’all run this—look at me for a second—and take a step back for a second and look at this: I’m a married Christian man with a family. At my concerts I make sure everybody has good of a time as possible, so all this demonizing me, it ain’t going to work after awhile. Pick a new target, pick a new target cause I’m not one of these dumb ass artists that you’re used to. You come at me and I’m gonna take my platform and break this shit down for real intelligent people every night so they can understand, then we get back to the music.-Kanye Rant about Wheelchair Incident.

Report: Honeybee Death Rate Is Currently Too High for Survival of the Species

divacuppa:

A government report released last week surprisingly admits that the honeybee species are dying off at a rate too high to ‘guarantee their long term survival’.

It has been well proven that the primary factor leading to this extinction is the presence of neonicotinoid poisons, of course present in insecticides sold by and/or used by corporations such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dupont and their products. A recent study from Harvard, published on March 27th of this year, has definitively confirmed what scientists outside the US have been saying for years: neonicotinoids are the [emphasis added] cause of colony collapse disorder(CCD). The study showed that 50% of colonies populated by bees who had been in contact with these pesticides collapsed, compared to only 1 in 6 who were not in contact with neonicotinoids.

The European Union understands that the death of honeybees is an unprecedented death for human beings and mother earth, as they have banned neonicotinoid poisons.

However, American powers refuse to believe the problem is neonicotinoid insecticides and they continue to be in use here.

These corporations with armies of lobbyists and politicians bought and paid for, like  Monsanto, are playing dumb and suggesting that ‘mites’ are the cause for the death rate of honeybees, a problem so bad that it means their extinction if they continue on this path. This is dangerous anti-science rhetoric, borderline scientific denialism from the American agro-chemical establishment. 

Well, did mites cause the honeybees to go extinct in the approximate 14 million years they survived here before humans invented neonicotinoid chemicals? Of course not. It seems only things as foreign to Earth as neonicotinoids can cause such a drastic loss of crucial life on our planet and the solution is obvious; inform people that if we keep allowing the honeybees to die at this rate, we will be literally without almost all of the fruits we enjoy. Oh and stop using neonicotinoids.

If we don’t seriously stop this soon, then a corporation like Monsanto would likely take advantage of the lack of bees to pollinate and create fruit, and attempt to monopolize the products of nature because the fruits will then require individual, manual pollination or more complex measures. While this may seem far fetched, in the absence of honeybees and acknowledging that manual pollination is highly labor intensive, micro pollinator drones may be in our future if something is not done to save the bees.

If you are reading this, there is a good chance absolutely none of this information is new. If the bees are not nursed back to health as a species, say goodbye to these things- (unless you want genetically modified, manually pollinated products of Monsanto in the wake of the extinction of the honeybee): Apples Mangos Rambutan Kiwi Fruit Plums Peaches Nectarines Guava Rose Hips Pomegranites Pears Black and Red Currants Alfalfa Okra Strawberries Onions Cashews Cactus Prickly Pear Apricots Allspice Avocados Passion Fruit Lima Beans Kidney Beans Adzuki Beans Green Beans Orchid Plants Custard Apples Cherries Celery Coffee Walnut Cotton Lychee Flax Acerola – used in Vitamin C supplements Macadamia Nuts Sunflower Oil Goa beans Lemons Buckwheat Figs Fennel Limes Quince Carrots Persimmons Palm Oil Loquat Durian Cucumber Hazelnut Cantaloupe Tangelos Coriander Caraway Chestnut Watermelon Star Apples Coconut Tangerines Boysenberries Starfruit Brazil Nuts  Beets Mustard Seed Rapeseed Broccoli Cauliflower Cabbage Brussels Sprouts Bok Choy (Chinese Cabbage) Turnips Congo Beans Sword beans Chili peppers, red peppers, bell peppers, green peppers Papaya Safflower Sesame Eggplant Raspberries Elderberries Blackberries Clover Tamarind Cocoa Black Eyed Peas Vanilla Cranberries Tomatoes Grapes
