A dad in our area just got into trouble because he was helping his daughters with cannabis for seizures. He used a juicer and apparently it helped. Now he's facing a lawsuit.
Bilott watched the video and looked at photographs for several hours. He saw cows with stringy tails, malformed hooves, giant lesions protruding from their hides and red, receded eyes; cows suffering constant diarrhea, slobbering white slime the consistency of toothpaste, staggering bowlegged like drunks. Tennant always zoomed in on his cows’ eyes. ‘‘This cow’s done a lot of suffering,’’ he would say, as a blinking eye filled the screen.
In 1961, DuPont researchers found that the chemical could increase the size of the liver in rats and rabbits. A year later, they replicated these results in studies with dogs. PFOA’s peculiar chemical structure made it uncannily resistant to degradation. It also bound to plasma proteins in the blood, circulating through each organ in the body. In the 1970s, DuPont discovered that there were high concentrations of PFOA in the blood of factory workers at Washington Works. They did not tell the E.P.A. at the time. In 1981, 3M — which continued to serve as the supplier of PFOA to DuPont and other corporations — found that ingestion of the substance caused birth defects in rats. After 3M shared this information, DuPont tested the children of pregnant employees in their Teflon division. Of seven births, two had eye defects. DuPont did not make this information public.
In 1984, DuPont became aware that dust vented from factory chimneys settled well beyond the property line and, more disturbing, that PFOA was present in the local water supply. DuPont declined to disclose this finding. In 1991, DuPont scientists determined an internal safety limit for PFOA concentration in drinking water: one part per billion. The same year, DuPont found that water in one local district contained PFOA levels at three times that figure. Despite internal debate, it declined to make the information public.
He is organizing two classes in March on the technique of grafting antique stock for propagation. The first will take place 11 a.m. March 17 at Gladish Community Center in Pullman. The second event will be a class at 11 a.m. March 24 at the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, 15319 E. 8th Ave, in Spokane Valley.
Participants will receive two antique apple scions. The second class has a registration, which can be made through the Inland Northwest Food Network at inwfoodnetwork.org.

I'm attaching a couple snips to this post ...the first is mine and it shows I am working at the pioneer level...at the top it shows -pioneer.
The second is Nicole's and it shows that she has completed the 'pioneer' level shown as the '+pioneer' at the bottom and is beginning the '-pollinator' level as shown at the top.
I think I understand the numbers after each bit to check off to mean how many out of how many necessary to get a check? The first number is how many we did and the second, after the slash is how many we need to do?
I think it's all a little hazy...
Anne's level went to 'pollinator' as soon as she 'passed' the 'pioneer' level.... ?
I'm not sure I've explained what I'm thinking, except I see that Nicole leveled up and now has more to do for the 'pollinator' level?
So does that mean that everyone started at the same 'pioneer' level? even staff?
I think things are working as intended...just a bit unclear how and when they are happening
