Microsoft’s security team Tuesday acknowledged that it knew of bugs in its Jet Database Engine as far bask as 2005 but did not patch the problems because it thought it had blocked the obvious attack vector. more

New research shows that curried cauliflower – a traditional Indian dish seasoned with turmeric and other spices – provides powerful protection against the development of prostate cancer. What’s more, this Madras medley was shown to be effective in treating established prostate cancers.
Scientists at Rutgers tested curcumin, a phytonutrient found in turmeric, along with phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC). PEITC is a naturally occurring substance particularly abundant in cauliflower and other vegetables of the broccoli family (including arugula, watercress, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, kohlrabi, and turnips).
The researchers injected the mice with curcumin and/or PEITC, alone or in combination, three times a week for a total of four weeks. Both curcumin and PEITC significantly reduced the growth of cancerous tumors. But PEITC and curcumin together had even stronger effects.
Pick up a bottle of this powerful prostate protector. Look for high-quality, organic turmeric at your local health food store, and make sure to keep it in a cool dark place. (Light reduces its potency.)

One of the longest running agricultural trials on record (more than 150 years) is the Broadbalk experiment at the Rothamsted Experimental Station in the United Kingdom. The trials compare a manure based fertilizer farming system (but not certified organic) to a synthetic chemical fertilizer farming system.
Wheat yields are shown to be on average slightly higher in the organically fertilized plots (3.45 tones/hectare) than the plots receiving chemical fertilizers (3.40 tones/hectare). More importantly though, soil fertility, measured as soil organic matter and nitrogen levels, increased by 120% over 150 years in the organic plots, compared with only 20% increase in chemically fertilized plots (Jenkinson, 1994).
