I had seen this building in numerous films and I always wanted to visit. When a friend and I found an opportunity to visit, i insisted we see this place. I am grateful that we did. It was a crisp autumn day and it was charming. A real gem of San Francisco and a treasured memory. .

#Repost from @freedom_faction A jury trial in #California has resulted in a guilty verdict against the agrichemical and #GMO giant, #Monsanto , now #Bayer /Monsanto. The judge has ordered Monsanto to pay damages of USD $289 Million to former school groundskeeper
DewayneJohnson, who has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. His lawyer argued it was caused by Monsanto's #glyphosate -based weed-killer #Roundup . Not surprisingly Monsanto plans to appeal the verdict. The impact of the ruling, regardless the outcome of the appeal, will unleash worldwide consequences that spell huge problems for the entire GMO agrochemicals business model.
The Johnson trial, Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto Co., CGC-16-550128, in #California Superior Court in #SanFrancisco , is the first of more than 5,000 such cases across the #UnitedStates awaiting trial for claims that Roundup ingredients cause cancer.
Johnson, age 46, is a former pest control manager for a California county school system, where he applied Roundup and Monsanto's #RangerPro on school grounds across the county up to 30 times per year for more than two and a half years.
According to the magazine Insurance Journal, the guilty verdict could influence the outcome of thousands of similar cases against Monsanto glyphosate-based Roundup. Notably, the same law firm, California-based #Baum , Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, PC is involved as part of the legal team in many of the other cases awaiting trial.
Robert Kennedy Jr, co-counsel in the case against Monsanto wrote a summary of the court cross-examinations by plaintiff lawyers as well as Monsanto lawyers. It revealed a devastating pattern of Monsanto suppression of negative carcinogenic test results, lies and huge payments to their "expert" scientific witnesses to support unproven Monsanto safety claims that Monsanto's Roundup herbicide was allegedly no carcinogen.
In one of the more damning admissions, Monsanto toxicologist, Donna Farmer, was forced to admit, when confronted with an internal Monsanto e-mail, that her primary concern was regulatory compliance rather than public health... 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#FuckMonsanto
