Well, mine say "baby-cut". I am confused if "baby carrots" are OK but the "baby-cut" are not or are neither of them?

I think the baby cut would be the ones they've shaped to look like a baby carrot. They both are cleaned with the same solution.

This just burns me up. I tell you what I bust my butt to buy healthy organic non processed food and they are cheating me. I even give carrotts to my dogs for treats. there was another news item a few weeks ago that some honey you buy is watered down with CORN SYRUP! I avoid corn syrup like the plague. They need to accountable is all I know.

I hate the fact that they tamper with our food to benefit themselves. And they wonder why cancer is so prevalent?

She "claims" she paid for the IVF from money she saved from some lawsuit from a previous employer. Why does it not surprise me she sued somebody Rolling Eyes

Even a lot of the Hollywood stars who have weighed in have been a bit hostile about the situation. Most feel very sorry for the kids/babies. I think even they can see it for what it is - using those kids/babies for big/fast bucks :x

LOS ANGELES – A big share of the financial burden of raising Nadya Suleman's 14 children could fall on the shoulders of California's taxpayers, compounding the public furor in a state already billions of dollars in the red.
Even before the 33-year-old single, unemployed mother gave birth to octuplets last month, she had been caring for her six other children with the help of $490 a month in food stamps, plus Social Security disability payments for three of the youngsters. The public aid will almost certainly be increased with the new additions to her family.
Also, the hospital where the octuplets are expected to spend seven to 12 weeks has requested reimbursement from Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program, for care of the premature babies, according to the Los Angeles Times. The cost has not been disclosed.
Word of the public assistance has stoked the furor over Suleman's decision to have so many children by having embryos implanted in her womb.
"It appears that, in the case of the Suleman family, raising 14 children takes not simply a village but the combined resources of the county, state and federal governments," Los Angeles Times columnist Tim Rutten wrote in Wednesday's paper. He called Suleman's story "grotesque."
On the Internet, bloggers rained insults on Suleman, calling her an "idiot," criticizing her decision to have more children when she couldn't afford the ones she had and suggesting she be sterilized.
"It's my opinion that a woman's right to reproduce should be limited to a number which the parents can pay for," Charles Murray wrote in a letter to the Los Angeles Daily News. "Why should my wife and I, as taxpayers, pay child support for 14 Suleman kids?"
She was also berated on talk radio, where listeners accused her of manipulating the system and being an irresponsible mother.
"From the outside you can tell that this woman was playing the system," host Bryan Suits said on the "Kennedy and Suits" show on KFI-AM. "You're damn right the state should step in and seize the kids and adopt them out."
Suleman's spokesman, Mike Furtney, urged understanding.
"I would just ask people to consider her situation and she has been under a tremendous amount of pressure that no one could be prepared for," Furtney said.
Furtney said he, Suleman and her family had received death threats and had been getting messages that were "disgusting things that would never be proper to put in any story."
In her only media interviews, Suleman told NBC's "Today" she doesn't consider the public assistance she receives to be welfare and doesn't intend to remain on it for long.
Also, a Nadya Suleman Family Web Site has been set up to collect donations for the children. It features pictures of the mother and each octuplet and has instructions for making donations by check or credit card.
Suleman, whose six older children range in age from 2 to 7, said three of them receive disability payments. She told NBC one is autistic, another has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, known as ADHD, and a third experienced a mild speech delay with "tiny characteristics of autism." She refused to say how much they get in payments.
In California, a low-income family can receive Social Security payments of up to $793 a month for each disabled child. Three children would amount to $2,379.
The Suleman octuplets' medical costs have not been disclosed, but in 2006, the average cost for a premature baby's hospital stay in California was $164,273, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Eight times that equals $1.3 million.
For a single mother, the cost of raising 14 children through age 17 ranges from $1.3 million to $2.7 million, according to the [color:5675=#000]U.S. Department of Agriculture</FONT>.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is struggling to close a $42 billion budget gap by cutting services, declined through a spokesman to comment on the taxpayer costs associated with the octuplets' delivery and care.
State Sen. Sam Aanestad, R-Grass Valley, an oral surgeon who sits on the Health Committee, said that once a state Medical Board investigation is complete, lawmakers could review issues from government oversight to standards in fertility treatment.
Suleman received disability payments for an on-the-job back injury during a riot at a state mental hospital, collecting more than $165,000 over nearly a decade before the benefits were discontinued last year.
Some of the disability money was spent on in vitro fertilizations, which was used for all 14 of her children, Suleman said. She said she also worked double shifts at the mental hospital and saved up for the treatments. She estimated that all her treatments cost $100,000.
Fourteen states, including California, require insurance companies to offer or provide coverage for infertility treatment, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. But California has a law specifically excluding in vitro coverage. It's not clear what type of coverage Suleman has.
In the NBC interview, Suleman said she will go back to California State University, Fullerton in the fall to complete her master's degree in counseling, and will use student loans to support her children. She already owes $50,000 in student loans, she told NBC. She said she will rely on the school's daycare center and volunteers.

After reading that made me more angry. If I lived in Calif I would be furious. That state is already in temendeous debt. Look I am not against using tax dollars to help people that truly need it but she brought all this on herself.

I was just going to bring over a similar article. It really is upsetting stuff! I almost do wish the children were taken from her and placed in proper homes. I saw an interview with her kids last night and the older boy said "we are going to be really squished in the house now". No kidding kido Evil or Very Mad

I just saw on CNN that she and her reps are getting death threats. They said people are just really pissed-off about the whole situation. If she really thought she was going to get to be the host of a "parenting show" or write parenting books she is sure getting the surprise of her life right now!

One wouldn't want for her to get death threats, that's taking things a bit far. Good Lord, I hope this wakes her up a bit though, so she's able to face reality.

No, of course not. But it sure goes to show that she hedged her bets all wrong. I think she thought the world was going to just love her and throw money at her and her babies and build her a big house and huge van and tons of gifts and a movie of the week deal and on and on and on. Instead - people are sickened by the situation she has put all those little children in and the burden on the tax payers and the state. Or maybe she is just as out of touch with reality as Tatiana shrugging

"Polish politician fumes over "gay" elephant in zoo
Associated Press
Friday Apr 10, 2009


WARSAW - A Polish politician has criticised his local zoo for acquiring a "gay" elephant named Ninio who prefers male companions and will probably not procreate, local media reported on Friday.

"We didn’t pay 37 million zlotys (7.6 million pounds) for the largest elephant house in Europe to have a gay elephant live there," Michal Grzes, a conservative councillor in the city of Poznan in western Poland, was quoted as saying.

"We were supposed to have a herd, but as Ninio prefers male friends over females how will he produce offspring?" said Grzes, who is from the right-wing opposition Law and Justice party.

The head of the Poznan zoo said 10-year-old Ninio may be too young to decide whether he prefers males or females as elephants only reach sexual maturity at 14."
