YOUR OPINION: Should genetically modified food be labeled?

After years and years of debate, a consensus has been reached on whether or not countries should be required or even allowed to label food that has genetically modified food products. Basically, it's been decided that it is okay for countries to do so, but it is not required. This article sums up the arguments better than I could: http://www.latimes.com/health/la-he-gmo-foods-20110710,0,5510492.story So what are your thoughts on this? Do you think that genetically modified food should be required to have a special label? I've always figured that it should be labeled, though this article does raise some good points.

Tracking Implant for Demetia patients -What's Your Opinion?

A few years ago the UK was in talks about tagging Dementia patients with GPS like tracking devices, in case they were to wander off in a fit of confusion. Some argued that this was a necessary procedure and was for the safety of the patients and peace of mind of the families. Others argued that implanting the chip would lower the quality of healthcare given to those patients who had Dementia.

What's Something Special You Loved As a Kid?

Ultimately, I think most of us enter adulthood with only "snapshots" of our days as children - eating a pecan spinwheel driving down the road with my dad, playing dress up in the attic with my mom's discarded clothing.... It really is the little things that count! A few examples: I have always loved nature - I had a favorite tree on my elementary school playground, a willow tree I would sit underneath and make crowns from it's branches. It's far from the most impressive tree or most scenic place, but it's still one of my favorite spots in the whole world. I would also make "grasshopper houses" by tying bunches of long grass on the hills at the tops, then hollowing them out and I would something creates a soft bed or even a little pebble pathway to them. I would rescue grasshopper from the boys that would try to smash them or bury them in the gravel. My comfort food to this day is plain noodles with butter, garlic salt and parmsean cheese - something my babysitter would make for us kids. My favorite lunch - and not a terribly healthy one so we didn't get it often - was plain fryed egg roll wraps. Now, I am happy to say I'm passing these things on to my own daughter. :) What special things do YOU remember loving as a kid? Could be a special treat, a tradition, a toy, an activity or hobby, a place.... Could be something that still exists or something you wish still did. Have you shared them with YOUR children?
