Once a pesticide is banned in the United States for its dangerous health and environmental effects, companies are still permitted to manufacture it for export only. This policy sends a message to the world that American lives are more valuable, yet ironically these toxic pesticides circulate the globe and come back to the US as residues on imported food in the circle of poison.
Narrated by Elizabeth Kucinich and featuring interviews with President Jimmy Carter, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Professor Noam Chomsky, Senator Patrick Leahy, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the film exposes the shocking practice of corporate profit in the toxic pesticide trade. It takes viewers across the globe, to India, Mexico, Argentina, Bhutan, and the United States, to document the emotional stories of victims and the inspiring ways communities are fighting back.

The New Jersey State Library is working with the New Jersey Division of Taxation’s Taxation University to bring business training to local libraries. Beginning in September, libraries across New Jersey will be hosting the Small Business Workshop to educate local business owners and entrepreneurs about starting and registering businesses in the state. This workshop includes:
Types of Business Ownership
Registering your Business
Reporting Business Income
Meeting Employer Responsibilities
Understanding Sales and Use Tax
From the Division of Taxation:
“We want your small business to be successful! The first step is a business plan, registration, and reporting business income. In this seminar, new business owners or potential business owners learn how to properly register a small business with the State of New Jersey and definitions of the different business structures. Once a business earns money, business income is reported to New Jersey. This program will explain the flow of income and how it is reported from the business to the individual.
Small businesses may be required to collect and remit certain New Jersey business taxes. If your business is going to have employees, you have tax obligations to the State of New Jersey. This seminar gives small business employers an overview of their filing responsibilities and how to withhold tax for their New Jersey employees.
New Jersey has a sales tax rate of 7%. This seminar gives a general understanding of New Jersey Sales and Use tax law and filing requirements. We also discuss use and/or accepting New Jersey Sales and Use Tax exemption certificates.”
