Will there be a world food shortage in the future? If we continue to rely on genetically-modified food (which drives out native varieties) and industrial farming, maybe there will.

According to a new report, the world is now eating more food than it can grow, basically due to rising population, as well as global warming, which causes drought and floods (sometimes both). Grain supplies worldwide are at a 30-year low. Fish supplies are running low due to pollution. These statistics represent a recent change, since India, for instance, used to be self-sufficient in rice, meaning it grew enough rice to feed itself, despite its high population level. China has this goal as well, although farming statistics are not always available from that country.

It’s GOOD to be grumpy! Maybe it’s not good for your social life, but it’s good for your health.

Allan Hall reports in the Sydney Morning Herald that German researchers have discovered that people who smile a lot die a lot earlier than the grumpy people of the world.

Flight attendants, sales people, phone operators, waiters and other people who have to be friendly on the job for long periods of time are risking their health. This false friendliness can lead to depression and stress, which in turn leads to a weakened immune system. Psychologist Dieter Zapf says, “Every time a person is forced to repress his true feelings there are negative consequences for his health.”

Will there be a gas shortage in our future?or not? One thing we DO know is that here in the US, we have plenty of coal?but burning coal causes terrible pollution. And there’s no way to use it to run cars?or is there?

Bjorn Carey writes in LiveScience.com that scientists say that there is a way to change coal into diesel fuel that can be burned in cars. Since 95% of our energy reserves are still sitting in the ground in the form of coal, this would be a tremendous help?until we can find satisfactory alternative fuels. But will burning coal in cars contribute to global warming?

Whitley Strieber continues with the interview with William Henry that might finally reveal the secrets of both Egypt and pre-Columbian Mexico. William found mica at Abu Garab in Egypt that is similar to what is found at TeotihuacÂ?n in Mexico. He suggests that the fact that this substance was gathered at both places may mean that a very advanced civilization existed in both places in the past, that was capable of making use of some of the electrical capabilities of mica. Then Linda Howe interviews and retired Air Force officer who claims that a crashed UFO was recovered during the 1983 Grenada invasion.
