Depression-and-Your-Thyroid-bookDepres­sion & Your Thy­roid:
What You Need to Know

Thy­roid and psy­cho­log­i­cal health are often linked. If you develop a thy­roid con­di­tion, you may also become depressed. This depres­sion can lead to more prob­lems with your thy­roid which, in turn, can lead to fur­ther depression-a vicious cycle that is dif­fi­cult to treat unless the prob­lem is addressed on sev­eral lev­els. This book can help to guide you through the facts about thy­roid dis­or­ders, what the thy­roid hor­mone does, and how it func­tions in rela­tion to your psy­cho­log­i­cal well-being.

Is it already Throw­back Thurs­day again? Wow! Here are some fun pho­tos of Health Cru­sader Dr. Patri­cia Bragg’s adven­tures at the Boys & Girl’s Club Sun­set Cruise Fundraiser. The West­side Boys and Girls Club hosted a sun­set cruise fundraiser aboard the Chan­nel Cat on Thurs­day, July 8 from 6:00 — 8:30. Hors d’oeuvres, music and fun were had by all!

As our local read­ers may be aware, the Santa Bar­bara French Fes­ti­val was last week­end. Each year the Santa Bar­bara French Fes­ti­val returns to Oak Park to cel­e­brate Bastille Day and all the things that make the French cul­tural his­tory so rich.  Great food, wine, mimosas, crepes, deli­cious pas­tries,  music, dance, — and, of course, the infa­mous Poo­dles & Pals Parade and Femme Fatales Revue! It’s a Dance Fes­ti­val, a Music Fes­ti­val, an Arts, Crafts and Travel Fes­ti­val and, of course, a Food Fes­ti­val. Each day the fun starts at 11:00 am when the enter­tain­ment kicks off on three dif­fer­ent stages and con­tin­ues non-stop until 7:00 pm, all in the beau­ti­ful set­ting of Santa Barbara’s Oak Park.

ACT NOW: States’ Rights to Label GMOs in Danger!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:28 AM

ACT NOW: States’ Rights to Label GMOs in Danger!

On July 14, the House Agri­cul­ture Com­mit­tee voted to pass the DARK Act (H.R. 1599), a bill that could bring the GMO label­ing move­ment to a screech­ing halt. A vote of the full House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives is sched­uled for this Thurs­day, July 23.

Please call your U.S. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive today at (202) 225‑3121 to urge them to vote NO on H.R. 1599. You can also click here to send an email or find your rep’s direct num­ber. Phone calls are crit­i­cal. Please also post on their Face­book pages, and men­tion that you are a constituent.

If passed, the DARK Act will over­turn Vermont’s GMO label­ing law and pre­vent other states from pass­ing GMO label­ing laws. The same could hold true for local GMO crop bans.

The bill, which we’re now call­ing the Mother of All Mon­santo Pro­tec­tion Acts, would also guar­an­tee the FDA never con­ducts inde­pen­dent, pre-market safety test­ing on GMO foods.

How do we stop this out­ra­geous piece of leg­is­la­tion? By let­ting every mem­ber of Con­gress know that we oppose it.

If you’d like to par­tic­i­pate in a Sen­ate meet­ing, please con­tact alexis@organicconsumers.org.

Monsanto GMOs Defeated by Oregon Organic Farmers as Federal Judge Upholds Seed Ban

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:37 PM

Mon­santo GMOs Defeated by Ore­gon Organic Farm­ers as Fed­eral Judge Upholds Seed Ban

Alter­Net
by Steven Rosenfeld

Com­mu­nity activists win at key stage in court.

A coali­tion of Ore­gon organic farm­ers has beaten Monsanto—the cor­po­rate agri­cul­ture giant—in a land­mark fed­eral law­suit that will make national waves by the way that their rural county banned the use of genet­i­cally mod­i­fied seeds.

On Fri­day, Mark D. Clarke, a fed­eral mag­is­trate judge, dis­missed a legal chal­lenge brought by com­mer­cial farm­ers who use Monsanto’s genet­i­cally mod­i­fied alfalfa seeds. The non-organic farms sought to over­turn a 2014 ordi­nance passed by Jack­son County vot­ers that banned the use of such seed stock, claim­ing that the anti-GMO ordi­nance vio­lated their right to farm.

How­ever Judge Clarke con­cluded that exactly the oppo­site was the case. He held that the county’s no-GMO seed ordi­nance could take effect next week, cit­ing ear­lier state leg­is­la­tion that pro­tected com­mer­cial farms—in this case organic farmers—from harm from other com­mer­cial enter­prises, such as the com­mer­cial farms whose GMO-laced alfalfa pollen gets car­ried by the wind and can’t be stopped from taint­ing organic crops.

“Farm­ers have always been able to bring claims against other farm­ers for prac­tices that cause action­able dam­age to their com­mer­cial agri­cul­ture prod­ucts,” Clarke wrote. “The Ordi­nance, by con­trast, is enacted pur­suant to sec­tion 30.935 [of state law], and serves to pre­vent such dam­age before it happens.”

The vic­tory by Our Fam­ily Farms Coali­tion is notable in many regards. To start, Jack­son County passed its ordi­nance before agribusi­ness giants suc­cess­fully lob­bied the Ore­gon leg­is­la­ture to pass a law ban­ning coun­ties from adopt­ing this form of anti-GMO seed law. In con­trast to many other anti-GMO cam­paigns across the coun­try, Jack­son County didn’t focus on requir­ing food labels to iden­tify GMO ingredients—which fed­eral courts repeat­edly have thrown out as vio­lat­ing a food maker’s com­mer­cial speech rights. Instead, activists focused on bar­ring the use of GMO seeds in the county, affect­ing only a few farms, as a way to ensure that crops and seeds pro­duced on many more organic farms were not sullied.

“We just learned this after­noon that we have WON the Monsanto-backed legal chal­lenge attempt­ing to over­turn our Jack­son County ban on genet­i­cally engi­neered crops,” said an e-mail from the coali­tion. “The court upheld the Ordi­nance on the grounds that it was intended to pro­tect against dam­age to com­mer­cial agri­cul­tural prod­ucts, which is allowed under the Right to Farm Act, and because it was expressly allowed by the Ore­gon Legislature.

“While this is an incred­i­ble vic­tory for fam­ily farm­ers stand­ing up to GMOs, we do know there is a real chance Mon­santo and their ilk could appeal this deci­sion so the bat­tle is not really over yet,” they said. “Also, the Plain­tiffs’ claims that the GMO ban con­sti­tutes a con­sti­tu­tional “tak­ing” will now have to be lit­i­gated in the sec­ond phase of the case.”

Mon­santo is expected to appeal this dis­trict court deci­sion to a fed­eral appeals court, mean­ing this fight is far from over.

Patricia Bragg Enjoys 4th of July Parade

Patri­cia Bragg Enjoys 4th of July Parade

The Inde­pen­dence Day Parade occurs every year on the Fourth of July, in down­town Santa Bar­bara. Patri­cia loves this event — filled with fun paraders, fes­tive flags, and an over­whelm­ing sense of Amer­i­can Spirit! The annual Inde­pen­dence Day parade is pre­sented by the Spirit of ’76 Asso­ci­a­tion. The parade begins at 1pm at Michel­torena and State Streets and trav­els down State to Cota Street. Fol­low­ing the parade are fes­tive cel­e­bra­tions in “Old Town” Santa Bar­bara in the 400–500 blocks of State Street. The cel­e­bra­tion con­tin­ues with a patri­otic rally at Chase Palm Park at 3:30pm.
