Environmentalism and Human Sacrifice
By: Dennis Prager

Last week, Bjorn Lomborg, the widely published Danish professor and director of one of the world's leading environmental think tanks, the Copenhagen Consensus Center, published an article about the Philippines' decision, after 12 years, to allow genetically modified (GM) rice -- "golden rice" -- to be grown and consumed in that country. The reason for the delay was environmentalist opposition to GM rice; and the reason for the change in Philippine policy was that 4.4 million Filipino children suffer from vitamin A deficiency. That deficiency, Lomborg writes, "according to the World Health Organization, causes 250,000 to 500,000 children to go blind each year. Of these, half die within a year."

60 Plus Quarterly Update
By: 60 Plus Association

It's a New Year across America, but little has changed in Washington, with President Obama and Senate leader Harry Reid (D-NV) obstinately standing against reining in government spending, and senior citizens scheduled to get walloped with higher taxes and the effects of Obamacare as more facets of the healthcare law continue to be rolled out. Obama's January 21 inaugural address was a cattle-call to move forward with every item on the liberal special interest wish list, but despite his tough talk, 60 Plus and millions of our senior activists will be standing in the way of his agenda!

5 Sequester Facts to Know Before Committing Suicide
By: Nick Gillespie & Meredith Bragg

To hear President Barack Obama tell it, the impending $85 billion in spending cuts to the federal budget known as the sequester are the worst disaster since Seth MacFarlane hosted the Academy Awards. But before you dive deep into depression, here are five facts that should take the sting out of the sequester.

The Christian Publishing Company with a Vision
By: BJU Press

In the early 1970s it became apparent that if there were to be academically solid, biblically sound science textbooks, Christian teachers of science would have to write them. George Mulfinger and Emmett Williams, two Christian university professors, agreed and were commissioned to write a high school physical science textbook. At that time the University Press—as BJU Press was called years ago—had been publishing a few books and booklets by theologians. The machinery—human and otherwise—producing books, booklets, and a periodical, Faith for the Family, was called upon to help prepare the science text manuscript for printing.

Obama: Fear the Sequester Cuts!
By: Howard Kurtz

Appearing before hardhat-wearing shipyard workers in Newport News, Va., the president tried to step up pressure on the GOP to avoid the so-called sequester that hits Friday. Following the all-politics-is-local rule, Obama pointed out that 90,000 Virginia defense workers will face furloughs if the cuts are allowed to stand. In a new twist, the president reacted to an emerging Republican plan to give the administration more flexibility in carrying out the $85 billion in cutbacks slated for his year. That, of course, would shift political responsibility to the White House. And Obama wasn't buying, saying the time frame was too short to give him anything other than unpalatable choices.
