Oops, I wish I could go back and edit my post.
The second paragraph was referring to the spy industry, not the storage industry.

I don't have a lot of time to post, so things are a bit sloppy. Sorry about that.

My experience is in development in the storage industry, among other things (hence knowledge of front end to back end).

You'd be surprised how different things are, even when it comes to internal reporting. It can be a culture shock.

@60:
There are entire departments dedicated to the security of the system, and they definitely know the systems from the front end to the back end.
I also doubt all that information is in one database.
Things aren't just separated via access restrictions, they are physically separated.

@49: I agree.
With security clearances, even very high level ones, there still is a "need to know". If you and I both have high level clearances and are even working on the same project, we won't necessarily has access to the same information. I seriously doubt he had access to all that information.

@17:
Given how well corn pollen can travel, it may eventually be impossible to eat non-GMO "organic" corn.

I'm not particularly worried about eating the genes that are currently spliced into corn, but I do worry about the long term affects. There is already evidence that it is affecting more than just the targeted insect species.

@12:
I don't know about Keshmeshi, but I certainly know the difference between diploid, tetraploid or hexaploid is, since I have to pay attention to such things when hybridizing.

I am concerned about the long tern affects of BT genes spliced into corn affecting insects. I realize we have been killing off insect for quite a while using chemical insecticides. But once a gene such as BT is inserting into corn, that form of insecticide is going to be around pretty much forever. If we find it has serious ecological effects, we can't get rid of it.

I seriously doubt Monsanto will be giving away the genetically modified seed to third world countries. More likely they will do the same thing there that they have done here - sue the heck out of anyone that saves seed contaminated with their special genes so that farmers have no choice but to buy all their seed from Monsanto.
@6:
You are equating splicing genes from different Kingdoms into plants, to hybridization?

@11: HGT is not anywhere close to the same thing. Sheesh.

Dang, it's cucurbit, not curcurbit. I don't know how that extra "r" got in there.
Jun 2, 2013 been there and back again commented on I Can't Grow Cucumbers.
As someone who grows a variety curcurbits including cucumbers in an area that often get into the 40's and sometimes the 30's after planting out, I don't think the 44 F was your problem if they were sufficiently hardened off. Also, I always start mine from seed indoors and plant out. They may be set back for a little while after transplanting, but they won't die.

That looks like disease to me.

Fresh sterile soil like Promix in a large pot or barrel might be the way to go.

Do you even have a clue what anencephaly is?

The "baby" is just a body without a brain. It cannot think.
