The highly-anticipated California ballot initiative known as Right to Know has been assigned a number: it is Prop 37.
Expect to see plenty of “Yes on 37” stickers and signs at your local farmers’ market between now and November — and even more “No on 37” commercials on TV.
If 37 passes, food products using genetically modified ingredients would be labeled as such. Hence the “right to know” moniker: you’d probably be surprised to see how much food you consume was created, at least partly, in a lab.
The companies like make GMOs, particularly Monsanto, have incredibly deep pockets and the best marketers money can buy, so the passing of Prop 37, even in a consumer-friendly state like California, is not a given. And as with any controversial proposal, there is disagreement among the ranks. Some believe that Prop 37 doesn’t go far enough, as it won’t require labeling on all GMO-adjacent food products, such as beef that was fed modified grains.
We’ll keep you updated on any Prop 37 developments and news from now until November. In the meantime, tell us in the poll at the link how you think you’ll vote.
I am indeed, single. However, I was accosted by a drunk (and possibly rolling) woman at a bar last night. She got herself a whole handful like 3 or 4 times. I politely refused, but she was pretty insistent until I made it absolutely clear. She left soon after so it was all good lol
For the last 8 seasons I’ve been blessed to play for a team and a city that has embraced me and that I have come to call home. This is a tough business and the only thing constant in life is change.
After talking with (owner) Robert (Sarver) and (president of basketball operations) Lon (Babby) we’ve agreed that it’s time for both of us to move in new directions. I approached them and asked if they would be willing to do a sign and trade deal with L.A. because it is very important to me to stay near my children and family.
They were very apprehensive and didn’t want to do it. Fortunately for me, they reconsidered. They saw that they were able to get assets for their team that will make them better, assets they would not have otherwise had and it made sense for them to do a deal that helps their team get better.
I couldn’t be more grateful to the organization and Robert in particular. I know how hard this was for him and that fact that he was able to help me and my family in this way … it means a lot and says a lot about his character. I will never forget this gesture. Above and beyond.
The Phoenix Suns are an amazing organization and fans should be excited about their future. I hope the Suns win a championship some day soon for all the amazing fans and wonderful people in the organization.”
Steve Nash’s statements today about being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. In a sign and trade deal, the Suns will sign Nash to a 3 year, $27 million deal, then trade him to Los Angeles for 4 future draft picks and around $3 million in cash toward their cap.
Steve was one of the greatest players ever to wear a Suns uniform, and will be missed. Not just on the court, either.
“The truth is I’m a bit old school. For me, it would be hard to put on a Lakers jersey. That’s just the way it is. You play against them so many times in the playoffs, and I just use them as an example, and I have the utmost respect for them and their organization. I kind of have that tendency (to try to beat the best teams), so it is strange, but as a free agent you’re free to go where you want, so I’d have to consider everything regardless of the past or the future.”—Steve Nash on being a free agent. Sources report he is to be sent to the LA Lakers in a sign and trade deal.
