The discovery of the double helix structure of DNA is to science what the Mona Lisa is to painting. It’s been called the single biggest discovery of all time. But it wasn’t just stumbled upon — it was a race.
Specifically, it was a race between two teams of young scientists working in Britain, as well as the esteemed chemist Linus Pauling, based in California. Already a Nobel laureate, Pauling may have been the favorite, but the discovery would ultimately be made by his British counterparts. Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins were trying to identify the structure by studying X-ray diffractions of the DNA molecule. But Jim Watson and Francis Crick studied a little bit of everything — including, to the consternation of some, the work of their competitors. A few have gone so far as to accuse Watson of stealing Franklin’s X-ray work.

In any case, Waston and Crick’s inquisitive working style ultimately allowed them to determine the DNA structure first, in 1953 — an achievement that led to their Nobel Prize in 1962. Meanwhile, Franklin passed away in 1958 from cancer.  More at PBS.

2011 – In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, investors, leaders from around the world, and globalist bankers are buying up farmland at an alarming rate.  Investors and bankers see farmland for what it is – a commodity producing income source less subject to the turmoil of derivative markets.  Politicians, in a new form of colonialism, are buying up farmland in other countries to secure their countries’ food supply.   The effect?  Subsistence farmers are losing their land and their way of life is being priced out of existence as the New World Agricultural Order unfolds.
