"Blog" is an abbreviated version of "weblog," which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information. Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects.
The Beyond Pesticides Daily News Blog features a post each business day on the health and environmental hazards of pesticides, pesticide regulation and policy, pesticide alternatives and cutting-edge science. Daily News is a service of Beyond Pesticides that is intended to keep activists, academicians, policy makers, the health care community, and pest managers informed on key issues and actions that are ongoing and important to the protection of public health and the environment. Daily News is intended to provide a tool for action as we seek to effect a shift in policies, practices and products to safeguard the health of people and the environment.
Beyond Pesticides Daily Newsarchive is housed in two places. For the period 8/13/2000-1/12/2007, the archive is located at the old Archives page and organized under a subject index. For the period beginning 1/16/2007 going forward, the archive is located on the blog and organized by date, subject and subcategories.
