Did You Know You're Eating Animals?!
It might sound hard to believe but a lot of people don't actually realize the meat they are eating required the suffering, death and decapitation of an animal.

Government planning to repeal animal welfare codes
Poultry industry to oversee chicken-farming standards as ministers move to create industry-led deregulation. Conservative ministers are planning to repeal an array of official guidance on animal welfare standards, starting with a move to put the code on chicken-farming into the hands of the poultry industry.

Liz Truss, the environment secretary, is overseeing moves to scrap the statutory codes on farm animal welfare and move to an “industry-led” guidance as part of her department’s deregulatory agenda. [ so industry funds its own regulatory body, lol! ] [...] Other sectors that could get control of their own guidance include the cattle, sheep and pig farming industries. //&! Poultry deregulation plans risk bringing back dark days of food scares. History shows problems start when food companies police themselves: think salmonella, BSE, foot and mouth, swine flu - bit.ly/1UON3ai - Privatisation move! Austerity. Self-regulation.

Warning: your festive meal could be more damaging than a long-haul flight | George Monbiot | Opinion | The Guardian
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/meat-industry - A kilogramme of beef protein reared on a British hill farm can generate the equivalent of 643kg of carbon dioxide. A kilogramme of lamb protein produced in the same place can generate 749kg. One kilo of protein from either source, in other words, causes more greenhouse gas emissions than a passenger flying from London to New York. //&! http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/23/eat-less-red-meat-and-cycle-more-for-your-and-the-planets-health // [...] I’m not suggesting that you eat no meat or other animal products. I am suggesting that we should all eat far less. Save the splurge for Christmas. And even then, choose carefully. [ Reductarian ]

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Animal welfare worry over Brighton and Hove City Council cuts - BBC News
Complaints over dangerous dogs or the mistreatment of animals may not be investigated under cost-cutting plans considered by Brighton and Hove City Council. [...] If the cuts go ahead it would also mean the council would stop policing people who refuse to pick-up after their dogs. The authority said it has to save £68m from its total budget over the next four years.

Massentierhaltung ǀ Alles auf eine Charta — der Freitag
Massentierhaltung Was hat liberale Ideengeschichte mit deutscher Geflügel-Industrie zu tun? Über absurde PR [...] Nun will die Geflügel-Industrie, unter ihnen das Unternehmen Wiesenhof, die Zielgruppe der Bildungsbürger erreichen. Sie schaltet Anzeigen unter anderem in der Zeit und der Süddeutschen. Die Website geflügel-charta.de enthält Texte, deren Länge sich offenbar bewusst den Gesetzen der Aufmerksamkeitsökonomie in der digitalen Welt zu widersetzen beabsichtigt. Die Sprache ist oft ulkig akademisch. In dem angeschlossenen Blog fällt einmal zum Beispiel der Ausdruck „ideengeschichtliche Hintergrundfolien“. [...] Die Industrie bekennt sich zur Einhaltung gesetzlicher Standards im Tierrecht. Immerhin. .... [...] Neben diesen Bekenntnissen bringt sich die Geflügel-Industrie als Ernährerin von künftig neun Milliarden Erdbewohnern ins Spiel, wegen ihrer hohen „Ressourceneffizienz“. Mit Rindern verglichen mag das stimmen, im Vergleich mit Gemüse eher nicht.

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.
