Subject From Telegrams to Computers

 Yes, what an evolution, from telegrams 60 years ago to computers and smartphones now . But is that for good or for bad ? People are connected all time, not living in the present , but in the instant; looking at their screens incessently, even while riding bicycles, dining in the finest restaurant., etc… Pitiful. 25% of cars accident are due to the use of smartphones while driving. In Tokyo, it has become common that Passengers are falling on the subway/trains tracks, because on their compulsive use of smartphones. Dramatic for Youths, which are addicted and not able anymore to concentrate on anything else, not to mention also the frequent teenagers suicides due to online harassment. So, what ever the convenience of computers and smartphones, their use is becoming too often an addictive phenomenon reaching pathological level. The new "opium of the masses".

Message With Respect, ......Sometimes it is more advantageous to rather Just Listen Objectively, without giving advice, especially if/when advice is NOT sought, and person was just looking for someone to talk to about any issue bothering that person, rather than give unsolicited advice . A Simple R U OK ? Question would suffice, and there is actually a National Health Campaign to combat Depression, in Australia, which use this for its Catch-Cry Header

Subject organic

Thanks for clarifying that there is 'very little difference' in terms of nutrients. I was beginning to look into the value of organic food. This article came at the right time. Cheers on a glass of regular wine.( not organically fermented )

Subject Organic Obsession

Refreshing to hear a contrarian argument to the dominant view that organic=good. Some scientists warn that organic food may contain more pathogens. In 2011 an outbreak of E. coli killed 51 people in Germany; the culprit was organic sprouts from a German farm.
