There are many things happening in the industrialized world that give one pause and inspire a deeper look at just what exactly humankind is evolving into. One thing I love about BohemianMojo, if I do say so myself, is our ability to look at many sides of a concept and connect the dots between the progressive possibilities and tried and true traditional wisdom.

This latest topic, however, is one that pulls at the very core of my being with little room to find positive outcome. Sadly, it’s also a topic that is sliding pretty much under the radar as the media chooses to focus your attention on other topics that may or may not be as impacting over the long term for humankind.

What could possibly be so dire, you ask?

Two rivers drain into Swansea Bay, the Tawe and the Nedd, and for several years there have been dreams to build a tidal lagoon between them  on Dylan Thomas’ ‘long and splendid curving shore.’

The original plan envisaged a huge nine kilometre wall build with sand-filled, synthetic bags, faced with stone and a series of turbines to generate power embedded into it.  Oyster beds and yacht clubs were planned within its span and it would have served as a prototype that could be replicated on many sites around the British coast.

England’s Lake District is a magnificent landscape. Sharp edged mountains glower over fairy-tale dales and heather clad fells. It has enthralled some of the country’s greatest poets, painters and writers for centuries.The dales are dotted with neat, stone farmsteads placed on a graph of pristine dry-stone walls enclosing small home pastures.

They contain a unique community of shepherding and hill farming folk. The fells and mountainsides above provide grazing for their traditional flocks of smoky grey Herdwick sheep. Beatrix Potter is the writer most associated with this special heritage so when Bohemian Mojo travelled to the Lake District a visit to her home at Hill Top seemed more than appropriate.

I think most people are aware honeybees are in trouble and, in the past, we’ve written about our hive nightmare – genetically modified bees. So we thought it was time to give readers an update on the many way bees are being tampered with. Pre-genetic engineering, back in the 1950’s and 60’s varieties of bees were crossbred in an attempt to increase honey yields and the introduction of African strains led to the creation of the notorious ‘killer bees.’ They have a dangerous sting and an extremely violent colony defence instinct and guess what thousands of them escaped from a research facility in Brazil You’d have thought we’d learnt our lesson back then but no, we’ve learnt nothing.

It’s not often I bury my head in my hands with exasperation but earlier this year I just had too after reading an opinion piece penned by a self-styled ‘street poet and Buddhist philosopher’ named Rashaad Thomas for The Arizona Republic newspaper based in Phoenix.

What price indeed. At Bohemian Mojo we decided it was high time we looked at the mind-boggling hypocrisies that surround food safety.  It’s a big subject but after some recent happenings we thought it might be time to give you our take on what’s really happening out there

Food safety is defined by the World Health Organisation as ‘thehandling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent food borne illness along the entire chain from farm to plate. According to the WHO that includes guarding food from chemical contamination.
