the internet / e-readers / tablets / phones were going to end print media.


check out e-book purchases and see how thats working out.
I don't know about the rest of society or what e-book sales are doing , but e-books is all I buy. Not to save the planet, but because they're so much easier to read. E-books cost more than printed books but they're worth it.

How about people that won't eat meat that has a bone attached to it? I know two people like that. Don't know what category they fall into.


where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

I get headaches from trying to read e-books. Don't like the screen. I get headaches from much time on the computer also. I want a solid book in my hand and can put it down when I want. Plus, there was an article somewhere....Maybe on CT ..... about how when you "buy" things that are electronic, like e-books, and such; they do not really belong to you. Wish I could remember where I read it as it was a very interesting article about "ownership" and both printed material and things like songs that so many download.
One plus to a book on paper; it never needs a new battery or to be recharged. Granted, I need light to read it when it is dark out, but I ought to be sleeping more and reading less anyway.

The largest meat packing companies like Butterball, Tyson, Smithfield, etc are the ones that are investing in research on the synthesis of "meats" based on plant protein. To repeat, it is not going to occur over night. It will be based on simple, straightforward economics. It has nothing to do with "green policy" or "humane treatment" of animals. It is simply a matter of meat packers that realize they have to find a cheaper source of protein.

Capitalism and economics will dictate the outcome. It always does.
The meat packing cabal is notorious for corrupt practices. Some of their actions would have made John Gotti blush with shame.

Regulatory capture isn't free market capitalism. Once the stranglehold of the meat packing cabal is disrupted by deregulation, which will happen, free market capitalism will dictate the outcome. The meat packer cabal will lose its influence over the industry, and no one will lament their inability to read the tea leaves, or the minds of mothers throughout the US.

Mother's, besides closely examining what they place on the table in front of their families more today than anytime in the past decade, have improving discretionary income (economic freedom). A polar force to decisions driven solely by price.

Smirnoff even sees what's happening.
