Hacking into the mind of the CRU hacker 5.2.2010 Guardian: Environment
Analysis suggests the hacker was in east coast of America and operated over a number of days, but much remains unknown Figuring out who was behind the hack of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia requires some digital forensic skills – and an insight into the mindset of those who were trying to get at CRU's files at the time. Analysis by the Guardian and digital forensics experts suggests that an outside hacker gained access to a server at the UEA which held backups of CRU emails and a collection of staff documents. It also suggests the access occurred over a period of days, if not weeks, and was carried out from a computer based on the east coast of north America. The release of hacked emails and documents ...

Survey: Colo. organic production at $70.2M in '08 5.2.2010 Vail Colorado: Our World
DENVER - Colorado farms sold $70.2 million in organic products in 2008. The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service released results this week from its first survey on organic production. It showed Colorado had 220 organic farms in 2008, with 34 percent in organic production for less than 10 years. That includes farms that are certified organic and those exempt from certification because they have less than $5,000 in annual sales. Of the 14,540 organic farms and ranches counted nationwide, nearly 20 percent were in California, whose $1.15 billion in sales represented 36 percent of all U.S. organic sales. Food is considered organic if it's produced without pesticides, petroleum- or sewage sludge-based fertilizers, herbicides, ...

The parish of Martin lies on good agricultural land beneath the chalk downs of Cranborne Chase. In past centuries, its 164 households would have been sustained by the output of local farms and dairies. But, over the last 60 years, the dairies closed and the farmers directed their harvests towards the vast hoppers of agro-industry. The people of Martin continued to be surrounded by fields growing food, but none of it ...
