Burpees
75 pound Power snatch
Box jump, 24″ box

“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.

On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.

BP Corn

Here’s the rub:

• Monsanto created “BP Corn” using genetically modified crops that include an insect-killing bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis,or Bt.

• It is supposed to make the stomach of certain insects explode.

• This Corn accounts for 65% of all corn grown in the US and…

• Last year, doctors at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec found Bt-toxin in the blood of:

  • 93 percent of pregnant women tested
  • 80 percent of umbilical blood in their babies, and
  • 67 percent of non-pregnant women

• Which makes sense because when you eat processed foods you are eating BP Corn: genetically engineered corn is present in the vast majority of all processed foods and drinks in the form of high fructose corn syrup.

The moral of the story is stop eating corn unless you know where it comes from (locally grown organic source) and stop eating processed foods. If you purchase processed foods and corn you are voting with your dollar to keep Monsanto thriving. And, if you think organic locally grown food sources are expensive, have you priced cancer lately?

Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, “The Chiefs” have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate “The Chief” in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.
