Talking Biotech 182 – Insect Resistant Cowpea in Africa

The link to this week's podcast is here. 

Cowpea is a critical crop in Western Africa.  It is consumed by millions daily, but also feeds livestock, all the while providing important nitrogen fixation for the farm.  Cowpea cultivation is threatened by Maruca vitrata, a butterfly who’s caterpillar stage feasts on the beans within the cowpea pod. Scientists in Nigeria have implemented a strategy using the Bt protein to fight against this pest.  Today’s podcast interviews Francis Onyekachi, Program Manager for the West African Maruca Resistant Cowpea Project.  He talks about the crop, the technology, and the strategy to ensure its continued efficacy.  Co-hosted by Nigerian native and University of Florida graduate student Modesta Abugu.

PLEASE READ!!!! PLEASE READ!!!! PLEASE READ!!!! PLEASE READ!!!!

Hey Guys!!!Am so happy I got mine from Mike Fisher. My blank ATM card can withdraw $2,000 daily. I got it from Her last week and now I have $14,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for business and enough money for me and my family to live on .I am really happy i met Mike Fisher because i met two people before her and they took my money not knowing that they were scams. But am happy now. Mike Fisher sent the card through DHL and i got it in two days. Get your own card from her now she is not like other scammer pretending to have the ATM card,She is giving it out for free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. i'm grateful to Mike Fisher because she changed my story all of a sudden . The card works in all countries except, Mali and Nigeria. Mike Fisher email address is blankatm002@gmail.com

Hey Folta! I thought you were retired from this schtick after the New York Times outed you for being in cahoots with Monsanto (https://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/06/us/food-industry-enlisted-academics-in-gmo-lobbying-war-emails-show.html), but I'm actually kinda happy that you're back - because I wanted to get your input on the second major verdict against your homies.

What do you make of this? Sure seems like the world is coming to the conclusion that Glyphosate might not be as safe as you told us it was.

Instead of getting a loan, I got my already programmed blank ATM card to withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 30 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $50,000. Mr Mike is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and he is not like other people pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from him i fully recommend him. Just send him an email on (blankatm002@gmail.com )

investing in oil and gas has and is still making a lot of people " very RICH". Investors in oil and gas are getting rich daily. All you need is a secured and certified strategy that will keep your invested capital safe by opting out with no withdrawer crunch. A considerable number of investors worldwide have seen gains of 75,063%, personally I have made over 600%. For example I started investing with $1,000 and I made $3,000, $3,500- $5,000 weekly. Last year at the start of the year, I increased my invested capital to $10,000 and I made approximately $105,000 before the end of year. I've never seen profit opportunities like this before in any market even when other traders complain of losses. Now for the doubters, not only is it possible, it's actually happening right now. All you need is a good and secured strategy, a good investment platform, Appetite and market conditions. Incase you are interested in venturing into investing or perhaps you are trading and has been losing, feel free to contact total companyat E-mail: total.company@aol.com I will
be sure to guide and assist you.

Hey everyone , let me quickly share my experience with this ethical hacker QUADHACKED@GMAIL.COM , I was married to my husband for over 8yrs during this time i've always tried to keep my credit score high scoring 700+ but then my husband and i bought a house together and we co-own it on a new credit card we were both charged. Though he paid the larger share. issues came up and my husband Changed drastically , staying away from home for days, drinking , things he usually don't do . i was so curious to know what was going on, then i spoke to a colleague of mine that introduced me to QUADHACK. this hacker helped me clone my spouse phone and i was able to keep gps track, sms from over 6 months same as well as his social media ,whatsapp,emails and call logs. Turned out my husband was meeting with a woman who was instigating this,it broke my heart and broke my marriage, he eventually filed for divorce,not knowing i had evidences of his infidelities and other evil schemes . though the house we were both paying for hurt my credit but i was able to bounce back because QUADHACKED@GMAIL.COM helped me fix my credit,deleted blemishes and sorted tax leins now i'm scoring an 800+ , this changed my finances and turned my life around for good , reach out to this hacker if you need to fix your credit and mortgage approvals.delete late payment history and remove blemishes, spy on your spouse when you suspect them of infidelity , even the bible frowns at infidelity.
