Vegetarians & Vegans have much lower sperm counts

Vegetarians have much lower sperm counts – Telegraph.

While the study shows that Seventh-Day Adventist have low sperm counts and motility it’s also known that they live an average of 10 years longer than the average American and have larger families. So low sperm count does not translate into fewer children.

Eating a lot of soy seems to be a bad idea, but even that is speculation.

Wisconsin: Pro-Union-Choice Teachers

Wisconsin Teachers Leaving Unions in Droves.

What’s happened? Union membership has fallen in the teaching sector. The Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) had almost 100,000 teacher members in June 2011; today, that figure has fallen by one-third. And AFT-Wisconsin, a smaller teacher’s union, has seen its 16,000-member peak cut in half. Teachers told Fox News why they left:

  • Teacher Amy Rosno said, “As soon as I was given the choice, I left.” After attending her first WEAC meeting as a representative, she said, “I realized that it was all political and not about teaching.”
  • Many teachers were concerned that their dues were being spent on political causes. Michelle Uetz, a special education teacher, said, “We shouldn’t be pigeon-holed into contributing to politics we don’t believe in.”

Many of those who have left the unions have joined non-union trade groups, including the Association of American Educators.”

Brown’s shooting in the middle of a street by a Ferguson policeman on Aug. 9, sparked protests, riots and looting in the St. Louis suburb. Some people are ready to leave the troubled city. Others say they will remain no matter what

Protests every day. The lives of locals disrupted. Business suffer. Property values decline. School revenue falls. Where is the ‘justice’ for the town?

Pearce Neikirk grew up here, and has watched the suburb of 20,000 shift from mostly white residents to about two-thirds black residents”
