Even though we should always treat animals with the highest standards of welfare possible, giving them rights is ludicrous. There is no moral contract between our species and the animals, nor can animals make moral choices. By not extending rights to animals, society preserves its individual autonomy, health, and profound feel of justice. Animals possess the inability to form a contract with humans. The exchange of words and language reifies the contract together and makes any change necessary to make the contrast mutually beneficial.
A survey financed by the Countryside Alliance showed that in spite of control, 30% of farmers had experienced significant losses from foxes in the preceding twelve months. This figure is supported by the research of an eminent Oxford biologist, Dr David Macdonald, who also found out that the percentage of farmers believing that foxes should be controlled varied between 82.2% in the Midlands and 96.2% in the sheep rearing districts of Exmoor. However I do not think that foxes are pests at all as most of the fox’s feeding habitats are not detrimental to farming – on the contrary, their main prey are rabbits, rats and voles, all of which are considerable pests in the 70% of farmlands given to arable production, so on one hand foxes can be benefit to the farmer. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, predation on lambs by foxes is ‘insignificant’. Studies show that even by farmers’ estimates, only one in two hundred lambs fall victim to a fox, whereas between 10% and 24% of lambs die from hypothermia, malnutrition or disease or are still-born.
Percy Schmeiser never relied on any genetically modified seeds to preserve or enhance the longevity nor the quality of his plants. Monsanto, Inc. is an agricultural company that introduced farmers to genetically modified canola seeds known as Roundup Ready. Roundup Ready is an herbicide, Monsanto was the first to patent, market, and sell this product to farmers. Monsanto is very protective of its product: Roundup Ready Canola can only be purchased directly from the company. Independent farmers cannot sell the seeds as it is illegal to do so and would result in Monsanto suing the seller and the buyer of the product.
Three years passed like one long nightmare, the kind where you are gripped by such a cold dread that you are unable to wake up from it. Pg 6. Sarun escapes work crew…gathers mother and Dara …flees toward border refuge camp he hopes is “real.” Pg 6 Mother digs up buried statue of buddah she had hidden from Khmer Rouge. (killed for religious belief) Chapter 2 And it suddenly struck me: everyone was part of some family ---not the cold-blooded Khmer Rouge version, the state as family, but a livening, laughing, loving family. Pg.
We had land that was all ours instead of some park where we had to watch out for broken bottles and dog poop. The boundaries of where we could go without asking permission first or being with an adult no longer stopped at the front door. Every day was an adventure with five acres to explore. To the north was a rock quarry where they mined ‘trap rock.’ I knew that’s what it was called since that’s what was painted on the side of a tool shack. It must be very exotic and rare since I couldn’t find the name anywhere else and we had an Encyclopedia Britanica.
B) Peter also received a vision before Cornelius’s men came to his home. He “saw heaven opened” and a sheet descending “down to the earth.”ii It was filled with unclean animals, creeping things, and fowls (Acts 10:11-12). C) When Peter is told to “kill, and eat” he says, “Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean” (Acts 10:14). Peter was never taught by Jesus to eat anything “common or unclean.” He can’t believe the Lord would tell him to do this. D) “Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean” (Acts 10:17).
