AN INCREDIBLE 812,000 food revolutionaries signed the 2010/11 petition to stand up for the united belief that kids need better food at school and better health prospects - THANK YOU (from Jamie Oliver’s Fighting for Food Education organization)! We're so grateful for your support and delighted so many agree action needs to be taken.
YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE. With your support, this uprising led to a truly global movement, with the launch of Food Revolution Day in 2012. The same year the Ambassador Programme was also launched - a growing group of thousands of passionate volunteers in over 100 countries. It has also grown an active, empowered and noisy community online and put pressure on leaders who can help us create positive change and begin to reverse the obesity epidemic through improved food education, food quality and security.
While the Food Revolution has continued to grow, we’ve still got work to do. With 42 million children across the world under the age of five either overweight or obese, the next generation will live shorter lives than their parents if nothing is done to rectify these alarming statistics. That’s why for this Food Revolution Day, Jamie has launched a global petition calling on leaders and governments of the G20 to make practical food education compulsory at school.
It’s essential that we arm future generations with the life skills they urgently need in order to lead healthier, happier, more productive lives and we passionately believe that it is every child’s human right. Food education will make a difference to the lives of the next generation. So please continue your support by signing this petition and sharing change.org/jamieoliver on facebook and twitter to help spread the word, we can’t do it without you.

I am grateful for the 16 and 1/2 years that our Zuni was with us. She was a real blessing to me and to many. She was a part of all that went on here at High Mesa Healing Center, Sweat Lodges, Vision Quests, Full Moon Ceremonies, Solstices, weddings, memorials, Peace Village, workshops and seminars. Yesterday [January 26th] it became necessary to release her essence/spirit from her physical body. Dr. Becky was so professional and caring as she gave her the shot to release our Beloved Zuni. I am also grateful to my friends who have supported me during this process.

On Tuesday, the US Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) confirmedthe first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United
States; the infected patient was a man who traveled from Liberia to visit family
in Texas. It's the latest development in the ever-worsening outbreak of the
virus, which so far has sickened more than 6,500 people and killed more than
3,000. The United States government has pledged to send help to West Africa to
help stop Ebola from spreading—but the main agencies tasked with this aid work
say they're hamstrung by budget cuts from the 2013 sequester.
On September 16, the Senate Committees on
Appropriations and Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions held a hearing to discuss the resources needed to address the
outbreak. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) asked NIH representative Anthony Fauci
about sequestration's effect on the efforts.
even modest investments had been made…the current Ebola epidemic could have been
detected earlier, and it could have been identified and contained."
"I have to tell you honestly it's been a
significant impact on us," said Fauci. "It has both in an acute and a chronic,
insidious way eroded our ability to respond in the way that I and my colleagues
would like to see us be able to respond to these emerging threats. And in my
institute particularly, that's responsible for responding on the dime to an
emerging infectious disease threat, this is particularly damaging."
Sequestration required the NIH to cut its budget by 5 percent, a total of $1.55
billion in 2013. Cuts were applied across all of its programs, affectingevery
area of medical research.
Dr. Beth Bell, director of the CDC's National
Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, testified before the
committee, making a case for increased funding. Her department, which has led
the US intervention in West Africa, was hit with a $13 million budget cut as a result of the cuts in 2013. Though
appropriations increased in 2014 and are projected to rise further in 2015, the
agency hasn't yet made up for the deficit—according to Bell, $100 million has
already gone toward stopping the Ebola epidemic, and much more is needed. The
United Nations estimates it will take over $600 million just to get the crisis

Bell also argued that the epidemic could have been
stopped if more had been done sooner to build global health security.
International aid budgets were hit hard by the sequester, reducing global health programs by
$411 million and USAID by $289 million. "If even modest investments had been
made to build a public health infrastructure in West Africa previously, the
current Ebola epidemic could have been detected earlier, and it could have been
identified and contained," she said during her testimony. "This Ebola epidemic
shows that any vulnerability could have widespread impact if not stopped at the
Still, CDC officials have pledged to do everything
in their power to stop Ebola in its tracks. "The sooner the world comes together
to help West Africa, the safer we all will be," Director Tom Frieden says in a
statement released in early September. "We know how to stop
this outbreak. There is a window of opportunity to tamp this down—the challenge
is to scale up the massive response needed."
