Move comes days ahead of 30th anniversary of Tiananmen Square protests crackdown

Twitter has apologised for suspending accounts critical of Chinese government policy days ahead of the 30th anniversary of a bloody crackdown on protesters at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, after an outcry among users.

In a statement posted to the company’s Public Policy Twitter feed on Saturday, Twitter said “a number of accounts” had been suspended as part of efforts to target accounts engaging in “platform manipulation”.

Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle tells US she would be more open to its interests in UN role

Europe’s candidate to run the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), which guides policymakers around the world, has promised the US she will “not defend the EU position” in resisting the global spread of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

In a bid for US support, Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle told senior US officials at a meeting in Washington on 15 May that under her leadership the FAO would be more open to American interests and accepting of GMOs and gene editing, according to a US official record of the meeting seen by the Guardian.

Plants Are Watching You

I am sorry that I really cannot provide direct links to these stories, and that you may have to do the search on your own.  Yars.

Forever, I have been claiming that plants have intelligence, right?  Because intelligence, and consciousness, is not what we think it is.  I didn't need to read this in books, although I did.  I studied it all in my gardens, yo.

Lately, it seems all the rage to expose this underground secret - that plants can think, and feel, and maybe even love.  (I say, 'Maybe Even," because you are not ready for the truth).

The latest NPRi confirmations came from Radiolab and On Being and Living On Earth.  Please search at your own fabulous discretion..  And see my tags...

High consumption of coffee no worse for arteries than drinking less than a cup a day

Coffee lovers who drink up to 25 cups a day can rest assured the drink is not bad for their heart, scientists say.

Some previous studies have suggested that coffee stiffens arteries, putting pressure on the heart and increasing the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke, with drinkers warned to cut down their consumption.

As one of ITV’s most high-profile programmes, there have been calls for the show to feature more plus-size participants to properly reflect society, as scrutiny grows of the effect reality TV has on contestants and viewers.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, he said: "There were a couple of hairy days. I asked them with a great array of arrogance that they not work me the day after my birthday. I said, 'Please don't have me working on June 1st, ­because my birthday is May 31st.' I thought a 100 million ­dollar film would at least listen to that ­request ... but I worked. It was a rough night and I didn't get any sleep.

"The line was, 'I'm sure you've all grasped the fundamental paradoxical pre-crime methodology.' I only know it now, still, 16 years later because it caused so much panic and anxiety. It should be on my tombstone. My sister was on the set that day and she had to leave the set after 56 takes. I was a disaster."
