Saturday December 2, 2006: Sing Out! Reviews, Winter 2007

Here's what Sing Out   (http://www.singout.org/)  has to offer in way of reviewing the latest in the folk world. Perhaps some of these new releases would please the folk fan on your holiday gift list.

First a song for this week's news. Russian Spy Alexander Litvinendo died Nov. 23rd from high levels of the poison Polonium-210 that were found in his system. Australia's Sydney morning herald today said that the restaurant where he was given the poison is doing a roaring trade
The wife of ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko and a contact he met in a London sushi bar have both tested positive for traces of a radioactive substance following the former intelligence officer's death, friends and officials said.

Italian security expert Mario Scaramella was hospitalised after tests confirmed he had been exposed to polonium-210, the rare substance found in Litvinenko's body before he died on November 23.

Speaking of gifts, know that this time of year we are esepcially doused in adds. More prevalent than most are the adds to add fragrance to your life, just educate yourself and know that these petroleum byproducts are life threatening to many. Chemical soups in fragrance are not regulated and protected by trade secrets. Napthalene, paradicholorbenzene, and other chemicals in moth boths and chemicals in air fresheners shouldnt be used near children, pelase. These cause central nervous system damage, dizziness and effects way past asthma- a quarter fo the population reacts severely to fragrance, so investiagete the indgredients before assumeing that frargant procutcts make a welcome and healthy gift idea.  http://www.ourlittleplace.com/chemicals.html
