Red Sox May Stop At $100M For Ellsbury - RealGM Wiretap
The Boston Red Sox would like to re-sign Jacoby Ellsbury this winter Sebastian Velasquez Jersey
, but they may place a limitation on any contract offer.
They may shy away from a nine-figure deal after giving Carl Crawford $142 million three years ago. People familiar with Boston's thinking aren't optimistic they'll be able to retain him.
The Red Sox tried to extend Ellsbury's contract before the season without success and the current hang up is believed to be whether they'll surpass the $100 million mark.
Giants Found Trade Market Too Expensive - RealGM Wiretap
The San Francisco Giants stood pat at the deadline, failing to address the second basemen he was looking to acquire.
"I've done this a long time, and I feel as good about not getting something done as any year we've done something," Brian Sabean said.
"There were a lot of bad deals to be made, and we weren't going to do that."
The Giants were reportedly interested in Ben Zobrist and Gordon Beckham.
"We just couldn't execute the deals based on what the ask was," Sabean said. "A lot of that had to do with too many buyers in the market, and we would do the same thing if we were on the other side of the fence. (Teams) held out to the very end to get what we weren't willing to give up."
Nemanja Matic Believes Chelsea Capable Of Invincibles Season - RealGM Wiretap
Nemanja Matic is the first Chelsea player to go on record to suggest the club is capable of progressing through the entire Premier League season without a loss.
José Mourinho and his players have been quick to downplay suggestions that they can emulate Arsenal's achievement from the 2003-04 campaign and become English football's new "Invincibles," but Matic has his eye on that title.
"I want to win every game if possible. People can say the unbeaten record is putting more pressure on us, but I would rather have it this way because winning is never boring.
"When you win, training feels better and so does playing matches. I don't know if we are better than the Chelsea team who won the title 10 years ago, but we know our qualities and we are a stylish team."
There Are Serious Issues And Consequences With A Genetically Modified Food Supply
There are many serious issues that plague Genetically Modified (GM or GMO) foods. The world’s top scientists have risked their livelihood to come out and warn us about the dangers of GM foods and how bad they are for our health as well as the environment. Unfortunately, big agriculture companies in alignment with governments are doing whatever they can to hide and ignore the dangers so that they can line their pockets with huge profits. Of course they would rather have you believe that they are doing their part to save the world from starvation. But little do they know that they are leading the world’s food supply into a very dark and dangerous place. And when it gets to that point, when they realize what they did was wrong, it will be too late for anyone to do anything about it. It will be irreversible!
Covering Up the Dangers
In 1998, Dr. Arpad Pusztai, PhD, was commissioned to do a study on potatoes that were genetically modified with a lectin gene from a European plant named Galanthus Nivalis. He placed the gene into the potatoes and fed those genetically engineered potatoes to lab rats. The results were of concern. What was noticed was that the organs of the rats had become critically damaged. In addition, their immune systems were severely weakened. Dr. Pusztai issued a warning to the British public by revealing his startling test results and the need for further testing in order to confirm the dangers. Needles to say, a scandal broke out to discredit Dr. Pusztai and he was immediately forced to keep quiet and retire.
Further Research Confirms the Dangers
In 2005, doctor of Biology Irina Ermakova released the results of a research study she led at the Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology of the Russian Academy of Sciences. This study showed the results of what happened to rats born to mothers that consumed genetically modified soy. And seeing that the biochemical structures of rats are similar to that of humans, this makes the results ever more disturbing. Basically, 56% of the rats born to those mothers who ate GM Soy died within three weeks. This is very disturbing because the death rate amongst rats born to mothers that ate regular soy was only 9%.
Here is another example of the dangers of GM food. In 1997, a farmer found evidence that feeding genetically modified corn to his cattle was responsible for systematically killing his cattle, the destruction of the production of his milk and the toxic poisoning his farmland. This particular strain of corn was engineered to create its own toxin that would make the corn resistant to a damaging and deadly insect.
These are just two examples of the many dangerous results GM foods are having on our health and food supply. With allergies and disease reaching levels never before seen, and the ages of people affected becoming younger and younger; should there be any doubt that GM foods are playing a role in the destruction of our DNA? If you would like to learn more about the cover ups and dangers of GM foods, read a copy of “Seeds of Deception” by Jeffrey M. Smith. It documents the health dangers of GM foods and the political and industry influence that allow these foods into our supermarkets.
The Worlds Food Supply Is In Danger
GM foods have the potential of irreversibly damaging our planet’s entire ecosystem and very little is being done by our government to stop this. There are serious consequences and repercussions that are yet to be realized. Gene contaminations can’t be simply cleaned up like chemical disasters. When these gene contaminants.
