Vor rund einem Jahr verursachte die Studie des französischen Wissenschaftlers Gilles-Eric Séralini erheblichen Wirbel: Der Verzehr von gentechnisch verändertem Mais durch Ratten habe zu Krebserkrankungen und Tod geführt. Experten meldeten Zweifel an, auch die Europäische Behörde für Lebensmittelsicherheit kritisierte die Methodik der Untersuchung. Die Leitung der Fachzeitschrift, in der die Studie veröffentlicht worden war, erklärte den Bericht nun für null und nichtig. “Redaktionsleiter ist inzwischen ein früherer Angestellter des Biotechnologie Konzerns Monsanto” erläutert die französische Europaabgeordnete Corinne Lepage. “Studien, die auf Langzeit-Beobachtungen der Auswirkungen von gentechnisch veränderten Pflanzen beruhen, sind somit nicht mehr möglich.” Entsprechenden Studien liegen in Europa in der Regel dreimonatige Tests der Hersteller zugrunde, danach beantragen diese die … [Read more...] about Fachzeitschrift erklärt Séralini-Studie für null und nichtig
MANILA - A senator has called for a Senate inquiry into a project that would replace a "perfectly working bridge" connecting Makati and Mandaluyong cities as she said the selection of a previously banned Chinese contractor for the job was "a recipe for anomalies." Through Senate Resolution No. 984, Senator Grace Poe urged the chamber's Committees on Public Services and Public Works to look into the merits of replacing the Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge, commonly known as the Rockwell Bridge. “There is a need to closely scrutinize the plan of our government agencies with respect to public infrastructure to give due consideration to the motorists and residents in the affected areas,” Poe, chair of the Senate public services committee, said in a statement. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced last week the bridge's closure starting Saturday, Jan. 19. The bridge crosses the Pasig River, connecting the Rockwell commercial area in Makati City and Mandaluyong … [Read more...] about Senate inquiry into ‘perfectly working’ Rockwell Bridge sought

Adam Bienkov, provided by Published 11:27 am CST, Thursday, January 10, 2019 The House of Commons passed a Brexit amendment on Wednesday designed to force the prime minister to immediately come up with a "Plan B" if her deal with the EU is rejected by MPs. The "meaningful vote" amendment was heralded as parliament "taking back control" of Brexit. However, parliamentary procedure experts insist that the amendment leaves the timetable for any second vote on May's deal essentially unchanged. While there will be political pressure on May not to run down the clock she is under no legal obligation to do so. LONDON — Theresa May's government was furious on Wednesday after the House of Commons Speaker John Bercow upended constitutional convention to let MPs vote on a motion which was designed to prevent the prime minister from "running down the clock" if she loses the vote on her Brexit deal next week. The motion, brought forward by the former Conservative Attorney … [Read more...] about Has the UK parliament really taken back control of Brexit from Theresa May?
