Support CPT12 by shopping at Whole Foods tomorrow
and enter to win a 16GB iPad!

On Thursday, February 10, shop at one of nine participating Whole Foods stores
and 5% of what you spend will come directly to Colorado Public Television.

It’s an easy and creative way to support the store and television you love!

Additionally, each check-out register will have entry forms to win a 16GB iPad pre-loaded with the PBS video player app and the Whole Foods Market Recipes app!

Remember to shop at one of these convenient Whole Foods locations on Thursday, February 10.

Tell all your friends and help support a local informational resource!

Normally, I'd be on top of it. I believe in supporting worthy programs. But, in light of the recent news that Whole Foods has caved in to Monsanto's unlabelled GMO foods, I no longer plan on supporting the store. I can't support Monsanto. The organization goes against everything I believe in. http://www.prwatch.or...­ (Here is what Whole Foods is saying, but there is always a choice to fight for what's right, for progress. http://blog.wholefood...­. Want more info about Monsanto's unethical practices? View the movie on the left side of this page, http://www.thefutureo...­.
P.S. These are my personal views, which are shared by many, but not necessarily the views of NewTech. Please draw your own conclusions. You are entitled to your own opinions.

Be well,

I'd suggest that the "shared by many, but not necessarily the views of NewTech" seems to be implying that your views might be shared by the group even if "not necessarily".

I'd like to suggest that hopefully its exactly the opposite, that likely a New Technology group is filled with people who are scientifically literate and not scared of modern agricultural technology. Not those who are inclined to fall for fear mongering of luddites scared of GMO foods they don't understand (I'll acknowledge there are those who have rational concerns, but the vast majority of comments I run into are by those who simply swallow without question the propaganda of the huge $ "natural foods" industry or that of its well intentioned but usually uninformed and emotionally driven supporters). Those who don't recognize that pretty much all our food crops have been genetically modified over the centuries by selective breeding. The current technologies are simply more efficient at modifying crops.
