Canada Day Thursday July 1, 2010

Canada has a birthday on July 1st. Canada Day is a national holiday in Canada that is celebrated with family picnics, barbeques, and fireworks. Canada Day is always observed on July 1st unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case it is observed the following day. A long time ago, Canada belonged to Great Britain. Over time, parts of the country joined together and wanted to form their own government.
On July 1, 1867, the British government (under Queen Victoria) approved a plan which allowed Canada to become an independent country with its own government. Click here for more details about Canada's Birthday.

Brandon Beachy Atlanta Braves 94 mph

Brandon Beachy has pitched so well that the Braves decided he needed some more innings. After tonight, his first start, he may get a lot more innings. He used a 94 mph fastball and mixed in a solid curve and changeup to dominate the Mudcats over 5 innings, striking out 7 and allowing just one run. He also managed to hit a home run at the plate, ironically enough in the top of the 6th, just before he was removed from the game. Jesus Sucrepicked a great time to go bonkers at the plate, with 7 hits in his first 3 games at AA. Click for more, by cbwilk on Jun 19, 2010 12:43 AM EDT in Minor League Recaps Talking Chop

Daniel Peachey Belleville PA

Peachey, 43, an Amishman who lives with his wife and seven children on a three-acre spread in Belleville, said he thought long and hard about whether he wanted to remain in the business of breeding and selling Yorkshire and Boston terriers, Maltese, and "morkies" (a trendy Yorkie-Maltese mix).

About 800 members of the International Association for Plant Biotechnology (IAPB) are attending all this week at the America’s Center. U.S. Senator Christopher “Kit” Bond called bringing biotechnology quickly into the developing world is a moral imperative.
Time is running out in various parts of the world and biotechnology is the critical answer to ensure that children don't go to bed on empty stomachs. They feel that about 800 million children go to bed hungry, every night. Several million of those same children die from nutrition-related illnesses every year
Bond praised Dr. Roger Beachy, the former president of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center and now director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). He called Beachy one of the true pioneers of the movements worldwide. Click for complete article in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat Wednesday. June 9. 2010.
