Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)

Ladies & Gentlemen,

At the risk of forwarding too much information, it is useful to recognize that young people are losing their lives to the condition called Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS). This label is just that. It is another way for the medical establishment to save face – rather than investigate alternative cause of why children – particularly children in Ireland are dying. SADS is another way of saying “We don’t know”. It is no more and no less than neurolinguistic trickery because once people are given a label they do not ask questions of the medical establishment. It is a method of suppressing genuine scientific enquiry when it is well known that human beings are electromagnetic first and chemical second as explained in the discussion below between Jeff Rense and Dr. Patrick Flanagan.

There are many ways to suppress truth. For example, organizers in Ireland planned to show the film,Vaxxed, about questions surrounding vaccinations. They were repeatedly blocked and had to resort to arrangements involving not notifying viewers where and at what time the film was to be shown until two hours beforehand.

This in a supposedly free and democratic society.

It is relevant that pulsed signals were recorded on the Oroville dam in California a couple of weeks ago and now witnesses are reporting that their properties are vibrating.

Meanwhile in Sweden and the U.K. last week there were numerous undocumented reports of sonic booms being heard over both countries and in Co. Cork, Ireland there were reports of strange blue lights dancing over Cork City.

Thank you to those who have made contributions.

Please circulate widely.

Kind regards,
John Weigel

‘Watt’ a shocker! New DARPA project seeks to electrically rewirehuman brains

The brain is often compared to a computer, a thrumming mass of circuitry, software and wires. If that’s the case, it’s surely possible to rewire it – to ensure mankind’s onboard central processing unit is the best it can be.

That’s the theory behind the latest project from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the US military’s shadowy research branch. It aims to enhance human cognitive abilities by activating “synaptic plasticity” — under the banner of Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT). TNT program sets out to accelerate cognitive skills learning, using neurostimulation to activate synaptic plasticity //t.co/IWU3nEsTU1 pic.twitter.com/zVgicDlI4b

Tributes paid to young athlete and law student who died suddenly

A community has been left devastated after a young rising athlete died suddenly at the weekend.

Tributes have been paid to Joanna Duignan (20s) from Gortinee, Aughamore, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim, who was a law student at Dublin City University (DCU).

In July 2013 Ms Duignan was national under-18 400m champion and in August 2013 she was part of Irish under-18 girls’ 4x400m team which won silver medals at the Celtic Games in Wales.

The Carrick-on-Shannon Athletic Club paid tribute to Ms Duignan saying there are “no words to convey their loss”.

“It is with a sense of profound sadness and deep shock that we let the Carrick-on-Shannon Athletic Club family know of the sudden and untimely passing of our friend Joanna Duignan.

Privacy violation at heart of city’s potential plan to ‘mine’ smart meters: Expert

The City of Toronto should not turn smart meters into snitch meters, a globally-recognized privacy expert says.

Dr. Ann Cavoukian said Toronto Mayor John Tory’s comment that the city would “mine” residents’ water and hydro usage data to figure out how many homes are vacant – the first step in his proposal to levy a special property tax on speculators – raises privacy red flags.

“I’m so appalled by this because it’s people’s private information. That’s what private property means. It’s private,” said Cavoukian, a three-term Ontario privacy commissioner and the executive director of the Privacy and Big Data Institute at Ryerson University. “I just think they haven’t a clue what they’re doing here in terms of how inappropriate it is – it is completely contrary to the law.

WARNING: Think frequencies bad now? 5G coming soon, dangerous untested ultra-high frequencies

 

5G networks will use the same frequencies as pain inflicting crowd control weapons

Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, April 29, 2017On countless fronts the rate of change currently unfolding in our biosphere is beyond true comprehension. So few understand (or even want to understand) the severity and immediacy of the growing challenges that we must collectively face if we are to survive much longer on this planet. More and more data is surfacing about the dangers of atmospheric particulate pollution and radiation exposure. At the same time the current administration is doing its best to completely dismantle every imaginable environmental and human health protection law. Donald Trump has become the new and most frightening face yet of the military industrial / fossil fuel industry complex, though ultimately he is only a puppet in the power structure play. Those currently in control are now more dangerous than ever before, how close are we to the trigger being pulled on WWlll? Will Korea be the scapegoat for the US military’s unleashing of a nuclear holocaust on planet Earth? The latest installment of Global Alert News is below.

Investigatory Powers: ‘Real-time surveillance’ in draft update

The “live” surveillance of British web users’ internet communications has been proposed in a draft technical paper prepared by the government.

If made law, such access would occur via the Investigatory Powers (IP) Act, which includes provisions for the removal of encryption on content.

The paper was allegedly leaked to civil liberties body the Open Rights Group, which received the document on 4 May.

The Home Office denied there was anything new in the consultation.

Facial recognition is everywhere – but so are tools to defeat it

Apart from celebrities and high-profile fugitives, most people take for granted the ability to walk around in public without being identified by strangers, blissfully detached from their names and personal history. But more recently, this basic concept of public anonymity has been rapidly eroding.

Thanks to the rise of social media, ubiquitous cameras, internet-connected devices, and massive police facial recognition databases, more than half the U.S. adult population can now be near-instantly identified and tracked on the street simply by revealing their face. In response, privacy-minded engineers and activists have been fighting back with tech of their own.

Mind hacking: Scientists want new laws to stop our thoughts from being stolen

Researchers have called for radical new legislation protecting people’s thoughts from being stolen and maybe even deleted.

Biomedical ethicists Marcello Ienca and Roberto Andorno believe that while rapid advances in neurotechnology have created opportunities in modern medicine, they also present new challenges for human privacy.

Writing in the journal Life Sciences, Society and Policy, the pair have warned that brain-hacking and “hazardous use of medical neurotechnology” could threaten the integrity of our thoughts.

Amazon wants you to put their new camera in your bedroom

Products like the Amazon Echo are proof of a strange new shift in our culture. Suddenly people are okay with having a device in their homes that they know is listening to them. They’re voluntarily inserting electronic devices into their private lives, which are capable of spying on them and sending the data to private corporations and governments.

At some point our society accepted the idea that trading our privacy for a minor convenience is totally worth it, which is something that would surely be mind-blowing to previous generations. However, that social acceptance is about to be pushed to a whole new level. Today, Amazon introduced a new device to their Echo line of products, called the Echo Look.

Facebook criticized for analyzing teenagers’ feelings, accused of providing information to advertiser

Facebook has been analyzing the emotions of teenagers and acknowledges it passed along the information to an advertiser in violation of its policies, according to published reports.

The Australian news website said it has seen internal research documents that show how people’s posts on Facebook classify them as feeling “stressed,” “anxious,” “nervous” or other negative emotions. The report says that advertisers could use this information to target teens “when they are potentially more vulnerable,” something that Facebook denies.

FBI and NSA outsource their harassment of Targeted Individuals and Watchlisted Individuals to private firms

The Privatization of Government-sponsored Cyber-stalking

(INTELLIHUB) — One of the reasons that the government is consistently “Chicken Littling” us with threats of extremism is money. Security is a multi-billion dollar revenue generator for the National Security Racketeering Network and Private Security Companies run by former ex-federal employees.

The operations of the private companies run the gamut from street-level tasking to tactical and offensive, weaponized-software deployment against innocent Americans. Now the U.S. has its own groups of militarized and federalized cyber-warriors. The most common groups are the FBI’s DITU — Data Intercept Technology Unit (run by an individual with a degree in law and psychology), the NSA of course, The NSA TAO (Tailored Access Operations), and Cyber-Command. Both the NSA and Cyber-Command are based at Fort Meade in Maryland.

EMF controversy exposed

By Dr. Mercola

Cell phones were first introduced in the 1980s, became widely available in the U.S. during the 1990s, and today we’re living in a society where cellphone-only households are no longer the exception; they’re the norm.1

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which classified cell phones as possible carcinogens in 2011, suggested during the late ’90s that a study looking into the relationship between cell phones and cancer made sense. In 2000, the Interphone study was initiated.

When its results were finally released (years behind its scheduled completion date), there was controversy over the results.

However, the Interphone Study Group did eventually acknowledge that “heavy users” of cell phones had an approximately doubled risk of glioma, a life threatening and often-fatal brain tumor, after 10 years of cell phone use.

The most shocking part of their finding is their definition of a “heavy user” —someone using a cell phone for two to two and a half hours per month!

With 5G rising on the horizon, it’s an exciting time to be an RF engineer. As we embark on the road to 5G, the next-generation wireless communications system, there are countless challenges and opportunities emerging for the engineering community. 5G represents both an evolution and a revolution of mobile technologies that reaches the various high level goals that have been published to date by various members of the wireless ecosystem.

5G is widely seen as the generation of wireless that will enable cellular to expand into a completely new set of use, case, and vertical markets. While 5G is generally seen in technology that delivers ultrabroadband services, including HD and ultraHD video streaming, 5G technology will also enable cellular to enter the world of machines. It will contribute to autonomous vehicles and be used to connect millions of industrial sensors and a multitude of wearable consumer devices, to name a few applications.

The evolutionary path to 5G consists of incremental enhancements of 4G in the conventional cellular bands and extending up in frequency to emerging bands in the 3 GHz to 6 GHz range. Massive MIMO has industry momentum and will evolve from first systems based on LTE to adopt new waveforms designed to improve throughput, latency, and cell efficiency.

How a telecom bill is about to strip local authority

On March 17th, the City of Nevada City received an alarming letter from the League of California Cities (LCC). The League, a consortium of California cities that influence policy decisions, sent an Action Alert putting all cities on notice about a bill that would ultimately usurp all local control in regard to wireless and small cell telecommunications. i.e. cell towers and antennas installations.

As stated in the letter, “This proposal would prohibit local discretionary review of “small cell” wireless antennas, including equipment, located on existing structures, located on new poles, structures, or non-poll structures. The proposal preempts adopted local land use plans by mandating that “small cells” be allowed in all zones as the use by right, including all residential zones.”

This bill also includes a de facto exemption of CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act, precluding all public consideration “such as aesthetics, nuisance, and environmental impacts of these facilities, all of which are particularly important.”

CA Senate SB-649 April 26 Testimony

Scientists For Wired Technology: 4/26/17 Mark Graham Testimony to the CA Senate the Governance and Finance Committee

Good morning, Senators. My name is Mark Graham and I represent Scientists for Wired Technology. In the Science marches across the country this past weekend one sign read, “At the start of every disaster movie is a scientist being ignored.”

SB649 is a disaster movie. It would bring cell phone tower antennas from where they are currently placed, 200 feet in the air and thousands of feet away from homes, to only 20 feet in the air and 20 feet from homes – 2nd story bedroom windows.

Please . . . don’t ignore . . . our best scientists. This will create a public health nightmare with a wide range of short term and long term health impacts.

Small cell radiation is pulsed, modulated radiofrequency microwave radiation. I will call it RFR for short.

In December, 2014, a California Medical Association resolution stated that peer-reviewed scientific evidence demonstrates adverse biological effects of RFR including immune system dysfunction, altered brain development, sleep and memory disturbances, sperm dysfunction, heart damage and brain tumors.

In May 2016, Dr. Ronald Melnick, the lead designer of the National Toxicology Program’s 16-year, $25 million study of the cancer causing properties of cell phone RFR, said that . . .

“The hypothesis that RFR causes health effects has now been proved . . . we saw increases of gliomas, brain cancers, and schwannomas of the heart … [pause] . . . The same cells that became cancerous in rats are the cells that have been reported to develop into tumors in [humans].”

The Committee should reject this bill because RFR is hazardous to human health. [pause] It penetrates the brain, the heart, and the reproductive organs, causing injury to all of them. It also causes early dementia for people in their 40’s and 50’s. This bill will create chronic health problems for millions of Californians every day.

Imagine if you cannot sleep in your home, you have a pounding migraine headache and ringing in your ears because of radiation from a small cell. You can’t function at work or at school the next day. The Committee should require the bill’s author to prove that, as they will be installed and operated, these small cells will not create a public health hazard. Californians need that assurance before you vote SB.649 through today.

DDT, Vioxx, and tobacco are all products that were claimed to be safe but were known by industry at that time to be hazardous.

The best reason a local government could have for saying NO to small cells is to protect the health and safety of its residents. This bill would violate Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution, which guarantees our inalienable right to pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.

Last Friday, I hand delivered to each of you this list of over 100 scientific studies, including the NTP study and other studies from 2016: studies we entered into the public record on 7/15/15 and 4/4/17. This substantial scientific evidence in the public record was ignored by the SB.649 bill analysts.

Russia well understands the hazards of RFR and is not installing small cells or 5G. Instead, it is bringing a fiber optic to every home and business, like the city of San Francisco. We need to face the truth in order to avoid the disaster movie of small cells in residential neighborhoods.

SB649 is unconstitutional because it would violate Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution, which says, “All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.” The hazardous radiation allowed by SB.649 would harm California residents’ health and safety.

Federal RFR guidelines do not protect against health hazards. Please don’t ignore the scientists. Don’t create a public health disaster.

Electrosmog and autoimmune disease

DOI: 10.1007/s12026-016-8825-7

Marshall, T.G. & Heil, T.J.R. Immunol Res (2017) 65: 129. doi:

Abstract

Studies in mice have shown that environmental electromagnetic waves tend to suppress the murine immune system with a potency similar to NSAIDs, yet the nature of any Electrosmog effects upon humans remains controversial. Previously, we reported how the human Vitamin-D receptor (VDR) and its ligand, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D (1,25-D), are associated with many chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. We have shown how olmesartan, a drug marketed for mild hypertension, acts as a high-affinity partial agonist for the VDR, and that it seems to reverse disease activity resulting from VDR dysfunction. We here report that structural instability of the activated VDR becomes apparent when observing hydrogen bond behavior with molecular dynamics, revealing that the VDR pathway exhibits a susceptibility to Electrosmog. Further, we note that characteristic modes of instability lie in the microwave frequency range, which is currently populated by cellphone and WiFi communication signals, and that the susceptibility is ligand dependent. A case series of 64 patient-reported outcomes subsequent to use of a silver-threaded cap designed to protect the brain and brain stem from microwave Electrosmog resulted in 90 % reporting “definite” or “strong” changes in their disease symptoms. This is much higher than the 3–5 % rate reported for electromagnetic hypersensitivity in a healthy population and suggests that effective control of environmental Electrosmog immunomodulation may soon become necessary for successful therapy of autoimmune disease.

Ana Belen Fernandez Alvares, Covert Harassment U.K.

Call for assistance

Dear All,

The organisation receives amounts from one donor of £5 per month and more than one person has been calling from abroad to my mobile phone with the result of more than £140 to pay this month out of my own bank account. Covert Harassment UK Ltd does not earn money from the voluntary work it undertakes and I will therefore no longer answering the phone to any unknown number to the detriment of any UK TI.  It has been happening from much before Covert Harassment UK Ltd was created and it has got worse with people calling diplomatic embassies, employers, sending emails and other harassment pretending to be other people over the phone with the V2K voice and phone library.

It is a shame that people do not value other people’s effort in fighting for human rights, the effort to liaise and create legislation and awareness of the continuous killing in the UK and Ireland  but I would not have expected anything from cowards, and those of you know who you are and what I mean, lies, corruption, money received and emails included.

The company will be receiving emails that might not reach me due to hacking, Skype address messages that can be hacked and letters with pre-paid envelopes and paper. They will likely take the time to steal from my house like they did in Birmingham, two years back and in London apart from destroying my body trying to prove they can kill the whole of the UK and Ireland like they do to any TI.

Many thanks.

Best Regards,

Ana Belen Fernandez Alvarez
PROJECT GRIFFIN – FRIDAY 5TH MAY 2017 – Sign the petition 

Response to James Broomfield,

I am really grateful for the invitation but due to personal circumstances I am unable to attend.

The project is extremely worthwhile for the UK with more information about cybernetic attacks to businesses, infrastructure and microwave technology impact needed to avoid lone wolf, individual and attacks to businesses.   The associated use of the brain biosignature (unique code per person resulting from brain activity that can be scanned using satellite systems), use of subliminal messages from childhood together with business fraud and patent stealing  using remote neural monitoring software should be explained to the community in order for them to be able to comment to you and get a resolution via the secret services when it happens. That will be the only way to manage terrorism and attempts by foreign governments to use the technology on crowds and on a bigger scale every day twenty-four hours. Individuals and businesses are reluctant to come forward due to lack of knowledge and non-existance  of a support network to deal with this urgent issue with the electro-magnetic radiation linked to the central nerve system commands causing neurological illness, cancers, infertility, violence, poverty, higher drug incited consumption due to subliminal messages and changes in brain activity together with  the use of police, politicians, military and civil society brains contained in their databases and obtained through hacking or purchased to any internal or external party.  ‘Guinea Pigs: Technologies of Mind Control’ by Dr John Hall is recommended with Neuralink by Elon Musk and Facebook following in the use of remote neural monitoring software to record human thoughts and manage brain activity.

The existing legislation in other countries such as the USA, Russia and the Philippines should be implemented in the UK and Ireland and for that purpose I created a petition in my webpagewww.covertharassment.org.

Wi-Fi in schools

Hi All

You might have seen the latest WiFI survey done by ARPANSA and published on their web site

//www.arpansa.gov.au/radiationprotection/wifi/index.cfm

The paper link below.

//academic.oup.com/rpd/article/doi/10.1093/rpd/ncw370/2883282/Exposure-to-Radiofrequency-Electromagnetic-Fields?keytype=ref&ijkey=bbI522JD7RsTs5P

ORSAA  does not dispute that RF-EMR power density levels when measured will only be a fraction of the current ARPANSA standard , which  is based on thermal limits. However, we feel this is an example of a very poor scientific measurement study that has been designed to minimise the power density readings as you will see from our letter to the editor below.

More time should have been spent in the planning of this survey. The results of this survey are little more than general background readings and nothing to do with classroom WiFi and as suchis not very useful for understanding typical exposures experienced by school children.

Where science and big money collide…

Where science and big money collide, we enter a strange “twilight zone” of science politics, where various methods are applied to neutralize “inconvenient” science.

One of the examples of such collision between science and big money is presented in, as always, a very good story from Louis Slesin: ‘Peer Review in the Raw’. From his long-time perspective as Editor of the ‘Microwave News’ Louis is showing, yet again, that science and politics in EMF are a “toxic mix” for science.

The story of Henry Lai and N.P. Singh reminded me of my first publication in EMF arena.

In 2002 my research group published article that made worldwide headlines: ‘Non-thermal activation of the hsp27/p38MAPK stress pathway by mobile phone radiation in human endothelial cells: molecular mechanism for cancer- and blood-brain barrier-related effects.’ by Leszczynski D, Joenväärä S, Reivinen J, Kuokka R; Differentiation. 2002 May; 70(2-3):120-9.

Intel cleared to build second huge plant at its Kildare base

THE IRISH SUBSIDIARY of tech multinational Intel has secured planning permission which could help the firm create a major new chip-manufacturing facility.

Last year, Intel Ireland submitted a revised planning application for an 88,000 square metre manufacturing plant in Collinstown Industrial Park, Leixlip.

This application has been granted by Kildare County Council and could result in the development of a plant to manufacture new semiconductor technology out of Intel’s base in the county.

Playing with iPads and smartphones ‘severely stunts toddlers’ speech’

Putting babies in front of iPads before the age of two stunts speech development, a new study suggests.

In Britain children under the age of three spend an average of 44 minutes a day using smartphones and tablets but it is the first time researchers have shown it can impact language skills.

Researchers from the University of Toronto and The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto found that every 30 minutes of screen time increased the risk of delayed speech by 49pc.

The Greek AMA recommends reducing EMFs/RFs to protect public health

The Athens Medical Association of Athens, Greece, held a conference April 1st regarding “Non-Ionizing Radiation and Its Effects on Human Health” where scientific lectures were presented along with 16 recommendations to reduce exposures and human health adverse effects.  Question:  Why hasn’t the American Medical Association done the same?  Good question?

Here are those 16 Recommendations for Wireless Use Safety:

▪ Use your cell phone with caution and make brief calls as necessary

▪ Children under the age of 14 should make limited use of cell phones

▪ Do not put your cell phone in contact with your head

▪ Do not use your cell phone inside a car, train, aeroplane, or elevator

▪ Restrict cell phone use when children or pregnant women are near.

▪ Keep mobile phones away from your body

▪ When using your cell phone keep a safe distance from others

▪ Do not carry or keep your cell phone inside your pockets

▪ At night, disengage Wi Fi on your router and switch off your mobile phone.

▪ Do not play games on-line and if you do, switch to airplane mode

▪ Hands Free option is always preferable though may not be completely safe

▪ Wireless connections may increase your exposure to microwave radiation

▪ Limit Wi Fi connectivity and use hard wired connection whenever possible

▪ When signal strength is weak do not attempt to make a call

▪ If a landline is available make use of this as a preferred option

▪ Disengage Wi Fi, Bluetooth & Data options from your phone when are not needed [sic] [1,2]

MN state bills for removing local authority in regulating (5G) small cells stopped

The following info. might be useful in stopping your state’s bills that remove local authority in regulating (5G) small cell facilities and what you can do to work with your local government.

If you haven’t heard about 5G yet, it is the use of millimeter waves which enables faster speeds (enabling virtual reality).  Because it is using higher frequencies which don’t penetrate buildings as well as current cell phone and wi-fi signals, implementation will require many small cell towers just a few hundred feet apart everywhere, including residential zones.  200 meters apart maximum, 100 meters for autonomous vehicles.  Several small cell towers will be deployed every block //www.rcrwireless.com/20161020/network-infrastructure/att-outlines-5g-network-architecture-tag4

———————————————————————————————————

Across the country, the wireless industry has been pushing for state laws to install small cell networks that pre-empt local authority to manage them in the right of way, which would include utility poles and any other property the local authority has an interest in and has made available for commercial purposes.  Some states with pending or passed state bills include AR, AZ, CA, CO, FL, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, MN, MO, NB, NC, NE, OH, PA, RI, TX, VA, and WA

//backchannel.com/handcuffing-cities-to-help-telecom-giants-7d13cbb600b7
In Minnesota,  HF739, SF561 were introduced in early 2017.  The bills would have allowed small cell wireless equipment to be placed on utility poles, signs, kiosks, traffic signals, light poles, or arches without the ability of a city to adequately apply its zoning authority. Additionally, it would have prevented cities from negotiating rates, permit timelines, and maintenance as it relates to the installation of emerging wireless infrastructure.

//www.lmc.org/page/1/SmallCellWirelessBill.jsp

However, the League of Minnesota Cities was strongly opposed to the bills, and their efforts contributed to stopping the bills from moving forward in April 2017.

//www.lmc.org/page/1/smallcellwirelessupdate.jsp

Here are some helpful documents put out by the League:

• a very good fact sheet //www.lmc.org/media/document/1/factsheetsmallcellwireless.pdf?inline=true  this fact sheet stated that the 5G network would be a complement, not a substitute, for high speed broadband, and that cities are responsible for considering public health, safety, and aesthetics.

• a talking points sheet  //www.lmc.org/media/document/1/talkingpointssmallcellwireless.pdf?inline=true

• and an information sheet about cell towers, small cells, and DAS, attached.  It made the important following points:

◦ in general, federal law (1996 TCA) preserves local zoning and land use authority

◦ cities can regulate height and location of towers

◦ to prevent wireless carriers from claiming utility status as justification for installation, your city can change its ordinance to specifically exclude wireless facilities from its definition of utility  (check your city ordinance’s definition of what’s included as a “utility”

The Orwellian world of IoT smart beds

“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984

Even Orwell didn’t envision when, even in the darkness of the night, every movement WILL be scrutinized if you purchase the growing line of internet connectedsmart beds. Take for example,

Innovation and the IoT Are Making Our Beds Really Smart

New technologies are reaching everywhere, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is giving a new life to our common household items. Nowadays, one of the goals tech companies have is to make all devices smart, which means giving them the ability to communicate, which is often done using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivities.

With technology spreading at this pace, we are developing the habit of taking gadgets to our beds. This is becoming really bad for us, as we are not taking advantage of the amazing memory foam mattresses available nowadays, we have less sleep quality and deteriorate the relationships with our significant others.

Regardless, the tech market is booming and beds do not escape this fever.

//www.emfacts.com/2017/05/the-orwellian-world-of-iot-smart-beds/

Comment from Prof. Olle Johansson:

Also see our papers about metal beds and microwave-based effect amplification through reflection:

Hallberg O, Johansson O, “Sleep on the right side – Get cancer on the left?”, Pathophysiology 2010; 17: 157-160

In this study, we show that a high prevalence of breast cancer and melanoma on the left side of the body may be a logical consequence of sleeping in beds having mattresses containing wave-reflecting metal springs. We found that people tend to sleep for longer periods on their right side, apparently to avoid disturbance by the heartbeat. This puts the left side farther away from the field-attenuating influence of the metal springs in the mattress; thus the left side will spend, on average, more time exposed to stronger combined fields from incident and reflected waves. This hypothesis may also explain why body parts farthest away from the mattress (trunk and upper arms for men; lower limbs and hips for women) have higher melanoma rates than the sun-exposed face area.

Hallberg Ö, Huttunen P, Johansson O, “Cancer incidence vs. population average sleep duration on spring mattresses”, Adv Stud Med Sci 2014; 2: 1-15

The conclusions of this investigation are that body-resonant radiation may influence health negatively if concentrated by metal spring mattresses during sleep at night. A simple way to reduce cancer risks may be to exchange the metal spring mattress for a non-metal one like a futon or a foam type.

Hullo dear folks,Well, the most serious national emergency now is 5G, I will post more about what that means AFTER the articles on the 5G resistance. If there is any way you can organize to resist 5G implantation into our lives, please do so and count me in.

BUT WILL BEGIN WITH A MEDICAL EMERGENCY FOR ALL OF US.

Below are articles on the LED screen damage to our eyes, a list of helpful products, as well as a series of easy eye exercises that have been done for 10,000 years by monks—and were rediscovered by Dr. Bates and Dr. Feldenkrais.

The approach of Dr. Feldenkrais being the most effective is reported in the best seller, THE BRAIN’S WAY OF HEALING, by Norman Doidge, MD. This link is an interview of a man who was an early computer specialist who went blind, had 15 surgeries and was 20/600 until he began using Feldenkrais eye movements. He now tests as 20/20.

//www.youtube.com/watch?v=aozSXCO7J78   

As often happens in the US, our media is not covering health problems caused by large corporate interests such as the TeleCom Industry. Below is an article from the UK and Ihave seen quite a few articles on research showing damage to the eyes from our computer’s “blue light” monitors. This is just one article below (excerpt):

HOW YOU CAN BEAT SCREEN RETINA DAMAGE

LED screens found in most electronic devices can irreversibly damage the retina and may evenlead to partial blindness. In extreme cases, it could even lead to macular degeneration, which causes dark patches to appear in the center of the field of vision.

Blue Light has a dark side

Exposure to blue light at night, emitted by electronics and energy-efficient lightbulbs, harmful to your health.

Until the advent of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in (relative) darkness. Now, in much of the world, evenings are illuminated, and we take our easy access to all those lumens pretty much for granted.

But we may be paying a price for basking in all that light. At night, light throws the body’s biological clock—the circadian rhythm—out of whack. Sleep suffers. Worse, research shows that it may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

But not all colors of light have the same effect. Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood—seem to be the most disruptive at night. And the proliferation of electronics with screens, as well as energy-efficient lighting, is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, especially after sundown.

//www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/blue-light-has-a-dark-side 

So am now researching to find how we can protect ourselves 

This is a new area but doctors have long known that the “blue light” impedes production of melatonin, which is needed to make serotonin–and therefore can cause insomnia, depression, cancers and early onset dementia, etc.

Here are two sources for products we need to get:

Blue Light Reducing Glasses:   It is becoming widely known that exposure to blue light from our devices and artificial lighting in the evening is reducing melatonin production. Melatonin promotes sleep and helps to rid our body of cancer cells at night.

I found these clip ons:

//www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D6G8F4M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

You can increase your brain’s production of this hormone by wearing these glasses after the sun goes down in the evening. If you wear reading glasses, get this pair to go over them.

If you don’t like the way these glasses look, spoke to my Santa Fe oculist and heard about Joya’s Recharge, which is a clear finish for glasses that stops the blue light from monitors. Other makers include:

I also recommend that you download the free software f.lux to your devices, which will reduce your blue light exposure in the evenings.

This amber incandescent light bulb is also a great option for a reading lamp.

For your eyes to get their proper stimulus to secrete melatonin, the dimming function of f.lux mimics normal light changes at dusk and is FREE: //justgetflux.com/

THIS IS THE HIGHEST RATED MONITOR SCREEN and is a very light blue color and does not affect the colors on my screen: [//glarminy.com/2017/01/17/blue-light-screen-filter-specs-recommendations/]

//www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O5CBUZI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Also, from Bau-biolgist Julie Whitfield:

This company claims 100% blue light blocking filters with lots of options, packages, zero-blue light bulbs and more.

HOT TIPS FOR EYE HEALTH These steps were used for thousands of years to treat eye problems by monks in Asia and rediscovered by Dr. William H. Bates and Dr. Moshe’ Feldenkrais.

These are simple and easy to do:

BLINKING–in today’s lifestyle we often stare at screens, etc. and forget to blink which relaxes the eye muscles and provides much-needed moisture. If your eyes are dry, try saline or homeopathic eye drops.

PALMING–You simply cup your hands over your eyes so you do not touch the eyes, but keep them in darkness so the nerves can rest. Note if you see lights, shapes, colors–or can you see a dark black, which means your eye nerves are resting? Continue exploring these moves and you will access that black that signals your eyes are at rest.

SUNNING–Also used in Asia and rediscovered by Dr. Bates and Dr. Feldenkrais. Sit with your eyes closed in mid-morning or mid-afternoon sun and slowly turn your head right and left so the sun’s warmth releases your eye muscles and nerves.

GENTLY SCRUNCH both your eyes using your facial muscles to sink them deeper into your skull. Then scrunch one eye at a time, lightly touching the other eye to make sure it is not scrunching.

PALMING, CHECK AGAIN if you see lights, shapes, colors–or can you see a dark black, which means your eye nerves are resting? Imagine seeing wet black velvet….

 

ON THOM HARTMANN (youtube)

Dr. David Carpenter and Dr. Mottus were invited to speak on the Thom Hartmann radio show and explained what we’ve been trying to get to the public for a decade. Thom is pretty conservative—for an ex-hippy liberal—so this was impressive.

//www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9gHSdWGazU&t=13s

If you can keep to submitting research, I suggest that you call Thom and speak on his program: (202) 808-9925. He is the most brilliant, well-informed radio host today, having written over 20 books on US History, autism, and pertinent issues. He’s brilliant and doesn’t miss much. Be nice!

The Internet of Things Poses Human Health Risks: Scientists Question the Safety of Untested 5G Technology at International Conference

WE ONLY NEED ONE SENATOR TO STOP S19 and S88!!! 

Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves – a type of electromagnetic radiation utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data. However, 5 G applications will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves – to allow ultra-high rates of data to be transmitted in the same amount of time as compared with previous deployments of microwave radiation.

For years, the U.S., Russian and Chinese defense agencies have been developing weapons that rely on the capability of this electromagnetic technology to induce unpleasant burning sensations on the skin as a form of crowd control. Millimeter waves are utilized by the U.S. Army in crowd dispersal guns called Active Denial Systems. Dr. Paul Ben-Ishai pointed to research that was commissioned by the U.S. Army to find out why people ran away when the beam touched them.

“If you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Members of the Central Ohio Mayors and Managers Association (“COMMA”) announced today the filing of legal action seeking to overturn S.B. 331 passed by the General Assembly late last December.

COMMA, an association of 17 cities within the Columbus region, is also being joined by members of the Greater Dayton Mayors and Managers Association and other Ohio cities seeking court action to overturn a law which they believe violates the Ohio Constitution. SB 331 was passed by the Ohio General Assembly during the lame duck session at the end of 2016. The bill was signed by Governor Kasich December 19, 2016 and is set to become effective March 21.

The legislation, which concerns a variety of unrelated matters including the regulation of pet stores in Ohio, had a provision added to it, without any legislative hearings or study of the issue, allowing AT&T, along with three other service providers (Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile) to attach small cell wireless antennas to municipally owned structures within the right of way of any Ohio city.

“Senate Bill 331 effectively prohibits cities from regulating the placement of wireless facilities in our communities. This will impact the streetscapes of our communities and reduce area property values,” said COMMA Chairman and Bexley Mayor Ben Kessler.

The bases for the legal challenge to the provision are two-pronged. First, the lawsuit alleges that the bill violates the “single subject” rule laid out in the Ohio Constitution, which states that “no bill shall contain more than one subject, which shall be clearly expressed in its title.” Second, the provision exclusively applies to municipalities – not townships, counties or other political subdivisions. The general applicability of a law state-wide is a necessary criterion in overriding Ohio’s long-standing Home Rule authority that permits cities to govern themselves unless pre-empted by a general law of the state. It is imperative that municipalities retain local control over decisions such as the location of small cell wireless antennas within their public right of way. To allow telecommunications companies unrestricted ability to install their infrastructure wherever they please is in blatant violation of the Home Rule rights guaranteed municipalities in Ohio’s Constitution.

“Ohio municipalities embrace the rapid deployment of small cell technology for our residents and businesses, however that must be balanced with the orderly management of public rights of way and publicly owned properties,” Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel said. Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther went on to state “Citizens expect that their community leaders are able to protect their interests, both on a safety front and for sound management of the installation of infrastructure and this bill strips municipalities ability to protect the interests of their citizens.”

While the General Assembly gave deference to big business over the Constitutional authority granted to Ohio municipalities, this lawsuit will seek to restore that authority to where it rightfully belongs. The law, if sustained, allows wireless companies to place facilities, including towers up to 50 feet high and equipment of 28 cubic feet (the size of a small refrigerator), in the local public right-of-way. Members of COMMA include the following cities: Bexley, Canal Winchester, Columbus, Dublin, Delaware, Gahanna, Grandview Heights, Grove City, Hilliard, New Albany, Pickerington, Powell, Reynoldsburg, Upper Arlington, Westerville, Whitehall & Worthington. For more information, contact COMMA Chairman & Bexley Mayor Ben Kessler at (614) 559- 4210 or bkessler@bexley.org    March 20, 2017

Handcuffing Cities to Help Telecom Giants

Carriers are pushing states and the FCC to constrain public rights. They say it’s for the mythical “5G.” We should be very skeptical.

It’s good to be one of the handful of companies controlling data transmission in America. It’s even better — from their perspective — to avoid oversight. And it’s best of all to be a carrier that gets government to actually stop existing oversight. The stagnant telecommunications industry in America has long pursued the second of those goals — avoiding oversight, or even long-range thinking that would favor the interests of all other businesses and all other Americans over those of AT&T, Verizon, Charter, and Comcast — by proclaiming that there is something really magnificent coming any day now from the industry that will make anything regulators are worrying about irrelevant.

Introduced by Senator Hueso

(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Quirk)

(Coauthor: Senator Dodd)

February 17, 2017

SB 649, as amended, Hueso. Wireless telecommunications facilities. Under existing law, a wireless telecommunications collocation facility, as specified, is subject to a city or county discretionary permit and is required to comply with specified criteria, but a collocation facility, which is the placement or installation of wireless facilities, including antennas and related equipment, on or immediately adjacent to that wireless telecommunications collocation facility, is a permitted use not subject to a city or county discretionary permit. Existing law defines various terms for these purposes.This bill would provide that a small cell is a permitted use, not subject to a city or county discretionary permit, if the small cell meets specified requirements. By imposing new duties on local agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would authorize a city or county to require an administrative permit for small cell, as specified. The bill would define the term “small cell” as a particular type of telecommunications facility for these purposes.

How a telecom bill is about to strip local authority

March 24, 2017

Reinette Senum

On March 17th, the City of Nevada City received an alarming letter from the League of California Cities (LCC). The League, a consortium of California cities that influence policy decisions, sent an Action Alert     putting all cities on notice about a bill that would ultimately usurp all local control in regard to wireless and small cell telecommunications. i.e. cell towers and antennas installations.

As stated in the letter, “This proposal would prohibit local discretionary review of “small cell” wireless antennas, including equipment, located on existing structures, located on new poles, structures, or non-poll structures. The proposal preempts adopted local land use plans by mandating that “small cells” be allowed in all zones as the use by right, including all residential zones.”

This bill also includes a de facto exemption of CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act, precluding all public consideration “such as aesthetics, nuisance, and environmental impacts of these facilities, all of which are particularly important.”

The telecommunication industry’s gag order 

Don’t even THINK for a second that you will be able to bring up health concerns to our elected officials: whether they human or animal. Congress passed the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that prohibits state and local governments from denying permit applications for cellular towers based upon the environmental effects of RFR (radiofrequency radiation including microwave radiation).

The FCC then issued a rule consistent with the Telecommunications Act: “No State or local government… may regulate the placement, construction, and modification of personal wireless service facilities on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency emissions to the extent that such facilities comply with the regulations contained in this chapter concerning the environmental effects of such emissions.”

That’s right. Since 1996, when this telecommunications bill was enacted, a gag order has been placed upon the American people regarding negative health impacts and safety concerns due to cell towers. This is why we have seen such an incredible proliferation of cell towers throughout the American landscape; not because they are safe and do no harm, but because we legally can’t discuss or make decisions based upon the negative health impacts even though The World Health Organization officially classifies electromagnetic radiation a possible 2B carcinogen: The same category as lead, DDT, and styrene.

Studies have shown that individuals living near these cell towers have measured reductions in serotonin and melatonin levels, threefold increase in cancer, fatigue, sleep disturbance, headaches, concentration problems, depression, memory problems, durability, cardiovascular problems, hearing disruption, skin problems, dizziness, etc.

THE DAY THE ALARM WENT OFF

It was after the City of Nevada City and City Councilman Duane Strawser (who is our city’s LCC representative) received the LLC’s Action Alert that Strawser called Senator Bill Dodd (co-author of the bill), Senator Ted Gaines, and other representatives. For some of these representatives, Strawser’s phone call was the moment they were first informed about SB 649. They had no idea that this bill had been quietly tucked within the other 135 bills the California legislature is considering.

If SB 649 goes through nearly every single lamppost and telephone pole along your street is going to be strapped with a 5G antenna and nobody will have any say about this. It is the actual intention of the telecom industry to install these “small cells” along all of our roads and on structures including commercial and even residential buildings. With the passing of SB 649 you and I will have no choice in having one of these cell antennas attached to the exterior of our very homes, possibly right next to our beds, and without our consent.

This bill is a Pandora’s box for local authority. This sets a very dangerous precedent that opens the door for any other corporation to come into our California communities and squash local government control in order to deploy any kind of corporate undertaking without the public’s or elected official’s consent.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

We can’t be a surprise that one of the largest (if not the) recipient of telecommunication industry is Senator Ben Hueso, San Diego (D), who is responsible for proposing SB 649 as well as slipping it quietly among the other proposed legislation. The bill is co-authored by Senator Bill Dodd (D), San Francisco Bay and Delta regions, and I would imagine he too is a large recipient of the telecommunication lobbyists.

Ultimately, Hueso and Dodd are throwing every man, woman, and child (and even our bees) under the bus for unabated control of our communities by the telecommunications industry.

This proposal is unconstitutional. It prohibits all local authority to deny the leasing or licensing of publicly owned property except for a few sites such as fire stations.

The LCC also noted “this bill strips local government of the authority to protect the quality of life for residents to protect public property in the public right-of-way from relatively unconstrained access by small cells.”

The League concluded, “under this proposal, local governments would be required to give preferential treatment to one industry that has received the “most favored nation” status under the state law (Note: A “most favored nation” clause is a level of status given to one country (or corporation) by another and enforced by the World Trade Organization. … Countries achieving most favored nation status are given specific trade advantages, such as reduced tariffs on imported goods.). No justification is provided for why this is necessary. This bill strips local government of the authority to protect the quality of life of our residents, and to protect public property and the public right-of-way from relatively unconstrained access by small cells.

Local governments typically encourage new technology into their boundaries because of its potential to dramatically improve the quality of life for the residents. However, this proposal goes too far by requiring local governments to approve “small cells” in all land-use zones, including residential zones, to a ministerial permit, thereby shutting the public out of decisions that could affect the aesthetics of the community and the quality of their environment.”

WHAT WE CAN DO

know we don’t need another fight on our plate, but this is one of those Pandora Boxes that we must do everything in our power to keep closed. I cannot stress how important it is that each and every single one of us pick up the phone and, at the very least, call the following numbers. Call them every day if you can.

On Tuesday, April 4th at 9am, the Senate Energy, Utilities, and Commerce will be holding a public hearing     on SB 649.  Nevada City city staff, councilmembers and I intend to testify at this hearing to protect Nevada City’s historic district because it is completely under threat.

Before April 4th, we need a massive phone, text & email campaign to ward off this bill. We must bombard our elected officials’ efforts and let them know that this is a massive property rights violation, threatens our historic district, our right to privacy, as well as destroys local control over our cities and counties.

When communicating to our representatives do not talk about negative health impacts. There’s a good chance they may hang up on you…. And I wish I were kidding.

Here are the LCC Talking Points:

This proposal shifts local land-use authority away from local governments and puts it squarely into the hands of private interests with complete disregard for any public input.

Governments have a responsibility to protect the quality of life for residents and to protect public property in the public right-of-way.

Local governments typically encourage new technology into the communities, but this proposal goes too far, shutting the public out of decisions that can affect their daily quality-of-life.

We weren’t supposed to see this bill, but miraculously, it was uncovered by the League of California Cities. It’s now our responsibility to stop it!

The 5G Network: What You Don’t Know May Kill You.

April 3, 2017

Reinette Senum

How would you feel if you knew that an untested technology is being deployed across America with no government oversight, no transparency, no public input, no regulations, and no long-term studies on health and environmental impacts? How would you feel if you knew sensors are rolling out to be installed in everything, from clothing, appliances, building materials, automobiles, cosmetics, toys, computers, furniture, etc, turning our world into the Internet of Everything, as a component of this untested technology?

Wouldn’t that be cool; living in a virtual reality where every single object and living thing is connected into a wireless global network? Allowing every single thing we do to be completely monitored and controlled, collecting every bit of data about our lives as we go about our day. Ultimately, all this information will be sold (and hacked) to corporations, nations, and various alphabet agencies to be analyzed, synthesized, and made available for anyone to do as they please because this new untested millimeter wave frequency, known as 5G, is currently being quietly deployed throughout America: under the radar.

Pun intended.

THE EARLY YEARS 

Most of you don’t know this about me, but I was actually an early adopter of wireless technology. In fact, I made a living from it back in 1990-91 when I had the first cellular phone store in Nevada County. It was on E. Main St., directly across from the Grass Valley City Hall, and called Empire Cellular. It was bequeathed to me, name and all, while sitting at the bar of the Nevada City North Ridge Inn with my former high school buddy, Dirk McCall. He was looking for an exit strategy from the business while I was looking for an income. Soon after inheriting Dirk’s cellular phone store I began making a hefty profit from the business. However, with the way I roll, within a year and a half I sold the business for pennies and hitched a ride to Alaska to commercial fish: I had been bored out of my wits. However, it was during that short year and a half stint on East Main that I became enamored with the cellular industry and would become a huge advocate. Once I opened my doors to business I was the local-go to person for your cellular service and installation. You could find me regularly yanking out a car’s dashboard components to insert a cable and pop antennas atop my customers’ cars. At that time the Motorola Bag Phone was all the rage and seemed Star Trekian in its nature. I bestowed upon my customers the merits and benefits of the growing global cellular service world. I was looking forward to the day that we had a sky full of Low Earth Orbiting satellites (LEO); giving us superior cellular capacity in every nook and cranny of the world. Back then I couldn’t wait. Owning the first cellular storefront in Nevada County encouraged me to keep an eye on the industry over the last 25 years, waiting excitedly for its development. However, over the course of those years the telecom industry has fallen out of my favor. Don’t get me wrong, there are many benefits to the wireless world. I’m not debating that. In fact, I must note the irony has not gotten past me that as I write this I’m completely dependent upon a laptop and a wireless modem. It’s just that the 5G network is not just about better and faster cell service. Not-even-close.

THIS IS WHY

It’s not what you think. It certainly wasn’t what I was thinking back in 1991. In fact, I had no idea what this industry had planned for our entire planet. This never became more apparent than during last year’s summer press conference when Tom Wheeler, former head of the CTIA, the vast telecoms lobby-group, and controversial chair of the Federal Communications Commission, proposed an unbridled “massive deployment” of commercial 5G transmitters, launching in 2020. Anticipating “tens of billions of dollars” of economic growth with US telecoms “first out of the gate,” Wheeler informed the American public that they needed to “Stay out of the way of technological development! Turning innovation loose is far preferable to expecting … regulators to define the future.” Those pesky regulators. What do they think they are doing protecting the public? Then with little fanfare, the FCC approved swathes of untested high frequency networks for private sector exploitation – ultimately setting a very dangerous trend: With no mention of health or environmental impacts, oversight, or corporate responsibility.

By year 2020 the telecom industry intends to cover America with over 2 million of these “small cells” installed on every lamp post, on buildings, power poles, basically, everywhere, giving no person, bug, or animal a place to escape.

In addition, those hidden “sensors” I mentioned earlier that will be tucked in every item you buy off a shelf will be monitoring, tracking, and sending out signals, experts have discovered that the skin, our largest organ, does respond to 5G and in fact our sweat ducts can act as antennas and can receive signals. This has not been tested for safety and experts in the field expect a jump in melanoma rates around the nation. Leading health advocates and respected scientists around the world are alarmed, to say the least. Dr. Joel Moskowitz, director of community health studies at the University of California, warns “precaution is warranted before 5G is unleashed on the world.” Former government physicist Dr. Ron Powell points out the plans “would irradiate everyone, including the most vulnerable to harm from radiofrequency radiation: pregnant women, unborn children, young children…the elderly, the disabled, and the chronically ill… It would set a goal of irradiating all environments.” POLITICS OF EVERYTHING The likelihood of you hearing about 5G is close to nil because that’s the way the telecommunication industry wants it. This has been rolling out under the radar as much as an untested, certainly unvetted, technology possibly can. It was after finding out several weeks ago that the California League of Cities uncovered our California legislators attempting to slip SB 649 into the Consent Items like a Trojan Horse among a basket of 350 other pending California bills, I have been forced by my conscience to search even deeper into the 5G technology coming out the other end more and more disturbed and with many more questions than answers. I want to say this again; I have more questions than answers. Don’t count on your local newspaper to cover this. Corporate media seems to have turned a dangerously blind eye on this legislation, ignoring the threat against democracy while the very bill itself was authored by California Senator Ben Hueso  ; one of the biggest recipients of telecom industry contributions in California. In the meantime, the wireless industry is pushing this through so quickly it is ignoring the Internatonal EMF Scientists’ Appeal to the United Nations. As of March 22, 2017, the appeal has received 225 signatures from 41 nations “to the United Nations asking the UN and all its member states in the world, encouraging the World Health Organization (WHO) to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines about health risks, particularly risk to children and fetal development. By not taking action that who is failing to fulfill its role as a preeminent international public health agency.” This is only one reason why I feel we need to slow down the expansionism of the Wireless/G5 network.

Electromagnetic Fields, Martin Blank, PhD Spokesperson from ElectromagneticHealth.org 

Our health is at risk while our state reps are allowing these corporate perpetrators to continue their deployment of technologies while most Americans have no idea what is about to be hoisted upon our biosphere. We have to understand that the higher the G rating, as in 1G, 2G, 3G, etc., the more toxic this technology is. We are now entering uncharted territory known as 5G. Microwave and EMF exposure at the 4G level have already decreased America’s overall health. Under the current 5G plan every square inch of America will be bathed and covered in penetrating and irradiating microwaves like never before. It will be impossible to escape this. Impossible.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

My former business, Empire Cellular, still exists today and is known as Golden Empire Cellular. It resides on Idaho-Marilyn Road in Grass Valley, along with Son’s Development and Sierra Solar; all green businesses. And while one associates wireless technology with the green movement, it is not. If you’re an environmentalist, don’t fool yourself: This technology is the antithesis of “green.”  Any “environmentalist” or environmental organization that says differently should not be trusted. The damage to bees alone is monumental. Studies have already proven the impact on bee colonies with much older and less toxic technology. I can only imagine what the 5G network and its additional 2 millions “small cells” installed throughout our nation is going to do to our food industry if the bees disappear. Lynne Wycherley writes in The Ecologist’s Wireless Pollution ‘Out of Control” as a Corporate Race for 5G Gears Up, “Life’s exquisite electro-physiology is still being discovered. Researchers at Bristol University reported in May that bees’ hairs are highly sensitive to flowers’ delicate EMFs. In controlled trials in Switzerland, bees reacted to mobile-phone signals with high-pitched ‘piping’: a cue to desert a hive. Other studies show that mitochondria, the tiny power houses in our cells, are at risk from our new EMFs. And that even DNA, in its delicate antenna-like structure, may be frequency-sensitive. The long-term, ecological implications of our new, anthropogenic radiation are not known. But peer-reviewed studies revealing harm to birds, tadpoles, trees, other plants, insects, rodents and livestock, offer clues.

IT’S BEEN IN THE MAKING FOR A LONG TIME

This is a technology that has been in the making for nearly 60 years. And while there is a platitude of studies, including government-funded studies that prove the increased risk of cancer and brain tumors, there are equally as many industry-funded research that expels contradictory information and these are dangerous myths that continue to be propagated in the corporate-owned media. Even more alarming is the 1996 Telecommunications Act that bans any local government from making a decision based upon negative health impacts from the wireless industry. In other words, this is a 20 year-old gag-order that was placed upon the American people before they had any clue what an expanded and amped up wireless network could look like. Meanwhile, leaders from around the world     take the harmful effects much more seriously such as “Switzerland, Italy, France, Austria, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Israel, Russia and China have set RF exposure limits 100 to 10,000 times less than the USA. They recognize that there can be non-thermal biological effects from wireless radiation.” Ultimately, these nations are assuming The Precautionary Principle     that states  “if an action or policy has a suspected risk of causing harm to the public, or to the environment, in the absence of scientific consensus (that the action or policy is not harmful), the burden of proof that it is not harmful falls on those taking that action.” For well over 50 years scientists and industry insiders have known that these microwave pulse modulated radiofrequency radiation day-in-and-day-out is very toxic; particularly to pregnant women and children, and yet our leaders allow the telecom industry to continue its expansion, completely unbridled; eviscerating the very protections that prevented the industry from steamrolling us in the first place. We can expect, in the future, that our health will continue to only become more and more compromised, manifesting in a myriad of different ways; EMS sensitivity is cumulative. It builds up in our bodies over time causing individuals to have great difficulty in warding off the simplest of flues while showing ill health in countless forms.

There is enough evidence and enough studies that should cause the general public and our American leaders to take great pause before deploying this technology in every neighborhood across America. This has literally become an unbridled unregulated industry that once fully implemented, will turn into a wireless planetary cage. It is with this technology that its proponents intend to monitor and control everything while compromising our health and the biosphere around us. I’m sorry if this sounds Orwellian, but that’s because it is.

WHAT TO DO

How is the public able to protect itself it these bills are passed silently and without public debate and feedback? Exactly who is supposed to protect us if the alphabet agencies that are designed to protect us don’t? Who is setting the safety levels? Who ultimately is guaranteeing the protection of the Public Trust? Are elected officials expected to do nothing while the proposed SB 649 and the criminal 1996 Telecommunications Act, an extensions of the WTO, attempt to strong-arm local government in its decision making? Since when do local authorities and their constituents have no say over the quality of their life, their environment, their health, and what is allowed into their cities and public right of way, even our homes? Haven’t we learned already? Have we forgotten the boldface lies that we heard from officials regarding asbestos, cigarettes, and lead, no name a few? These are the answers I have been seeking out. I have been astounded and alarmed by what I continue to uncover and feel it absolutely imperative that I share this with the public, my community, and the world. This is not going to be easy. I love this technology as much as the next guy, but is it worth our health? Our lives? This is why I have made this into a 3 Part series that will explore the impacts, its history, studies and possible alternatives of this technology from some of the greatest minds around the world. Stay tuned and feel free to sign up here and received my blogs as I post them because I’m not going down this wormhole alone.

First state in the nation: Maryland State Advisory Council recommends reducing school WiFi

·Children’s environmental health experts respond to new US study linking wireless radiofrequency radiation to cancer after the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reducing radiofrequency exposures.· Teton Village, WY — (SBWIRE) — 02/27/2017 — After reviewing new and growing evidence on health risks of wireless radiation, the Maryland State Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC) issued a Report advising the Department of Education to recommend local school districts reduce classroom wireless radiation exposures by providing wired—rather than wireless—internet connections. CEHPAC’s health experts include Governor appointed pediatricians, Maryland State House/Senate appointees and representatives of the Department of Education and Department of Health. The Council cited the recent US National Toxicology Program (NTP) findings of increased rates of rare malignant cancers in animals, as well as children’s unique vulnerability to the radiation. While several countries, such as France, Israel and Cyprus, already have such protective measures in place, this action to issue recommendations to reduce classroom wireless exposures is the first by an expert state body in the United States.

The Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council recommends:

“The Maryland State Department of Education should recommend that local school systems consider using wired devices,” “WiFi can be turned off” and instead “a wired local area network (LAN) can provide a reliable and secure form of networking…without any microwave electromagnetic field exposure.”

New construction and renovations: “If a new classroom is to be built, or electrical work is to be carried out in an existing classroom, network cables can be added at the same time, providing wired (not wireless) network access with minimal extra cost and time.”

The Maryland State Department of Education should recommend that local school systems use strategies to minimize exposures: “Have children place devices on desks to serve as barrier between the device and children’s bodies; Locate laptops in the classroom in a way that keeps pupil heads as far away from the laptop screens (where the antennas are) as practicable; Consider using screens designed to reduce eyestrain; Consider using a switch to shut down the router when it is not in use”.

“The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene should provide suggestions to the public on ways to reduce exposure: Sit away from WiFi routers, especially when people are using it to access the internet. Turn off the wireless on your laptop when you are not using it. Turn off WiFi on smartphones and tablets when not surfing the web. Switch tablets to airplane mode to play games or watch videos stored on the device.”

“The General Assembly should consider funding education and research on

electromagnetic radiation and health as schools add WiFi to classrooms.”

The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene should “ask the United States Department of Health and Human Services to formally petition the FCC to revisit the exposure limit to ensure it is protective of children’s health and that it relies on current science.”

The Report should be shared with the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Communications Commission, Maryland State Department of Education and Maryland General Assembly

“While this report focused on WiFi radiation in schools, there are additional concerns about mobile phones and cell phone towers. CEHPAC plans to take a look at these broader issues over the next year,” the Report states.

Referring to the fact that US wireless public exposure limits were set in 1996, without testing for long term safety, the CEHPAC Council Report also stated that “decades-old standards need updating in light of new science.” Such statements are in line with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has also called for a regulatory review and states that children’s brains are less mature and can absorb proportionately twice the wireless radiation as an adult because of children’s thinner skulls that contain more fluid.

“If you plan to watch a movie on your device, download it first, then switch to airplane mode while you watch in order to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure,” recommends the American Academy of Pediatrics.

In response to the 2016 NTP study findings of a cancer link, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Consumer Reports, Obstetricians and several Medical Associations have issued recommendations to reduce cell phone and wireless exposures to children. The American Academy of Pediatrics has also called on the United States government to strengthen wireless exposure regulations to protect children and pregnant women.

“Our children’s healthy future rests on the responsible actions of today,” stated Theodora Scarato MSW, of Environmental Health Trust, who brought the issue to the Council in Spring of 2014. “21st century learning should include 21st century science,” Scarato points out about research showing wireless alters brain development in addition to cancer. “Corded non-wireless connections in school are an important part of a safe and healthy school environment, respecting not only our children but also the teachers and staff.”

The Council heard testimony from health organizations and from parents who reside in multiple counties in the State of Maryland, including Montgomery County, Prince Georges County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County and Howard County. The Council also received hundreds of pages of expert scientific material and comments prior to the final Report, which the Council has posted on their website.

“Parents have a right to know if there is an environmental hazard in the classroom and actions that can be taken to reduce exposure. The stakes are so high for our children, yet we are way behind what has been happening around the world. Over 20 countries have taken steps and in some cases passed legislation to protect their youngest and most vulnerable citizens and it is time we do the same for ours,” stated Montgomery County parent Laura Simon, pointing to countries like France, Cyprus and Israel.

Scarato described the process of how she brought the health issue of children’s exposures to wireless in schools to Maryland State agencies almost three years ago, by first writing letters of concern about the school radiation exposures. “I was shocked to learn no government health agency had reviewed the issue from a health and safety standpoint considering how fast WiFi was being installed in schools across the State.” Dr. Sharfstein, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Health, initially responded to Scarato’s concern, “It is fair to say there are legitimate questions about the long-term health implications of microwave radiation” and that the Department of Health “would be interested in the advice and counsel of groups such as the Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council.”

Scarato pointed out that the Education Department representative on the Council voted in favor of the CEHPAC recommendations to reduce wireless exposures.” The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) also had responded to Scarato’s initial concerns by referring her to CEHPAC which “exists for the purpose of identifying environmental hazards that may affect children’s health and recommending solutions to those hazards.”

In 2017, Maryland lawmakers will consider a bill to to create uniform screen safety guidelines for public schools “to protect children from the documented health hazards posed by daily use of digital devices.” Medical researchers are pointing to an array of psychological, emotional, and physiological psychological, emotional, and she see a logical health issues screens pose to children at the same time that schools are integrating wireless networks and one to one device initiatives into classrooms. In response to these health concerns, many schools worldwide are replacing wireless systems with wired systems, limiting time children spend on screens and developing policy to address health concerns posed by school wireless networks.

LED DANGERS ‘Global epidemic of blindness’

Turns out that LEDs have their own toxicity–Just when we felt safe escaping from CFLs! Their radiation penetrates an inch or more into your tissues, affecting your mitochondria, which produce your ATP or the energy cells need to function. We can only live for 15 seconds without ATP. 1/3 of our energy is derived from food; the other 2/3 is from light exposure of specific light spectrums–missing in LEDs.

LED Blue light also inhibits production of Melatonin, limiting your ability to sleep, leaving you open to depression and neurological problems LED Blue light also is tied to retinal damage.

SWITCH BACK TO CLEAR INCANDESCENT BULBS. The best ones are made in Brazil. Our Democrats in Wash, DC, having been “greenwashed” made normal incandescents illegal to produce in the US. Oddly enough, it was the Republicans who tried to counter that as it closed our US manufacturing for bulbs that last more than 2 months! He describes halogen lights as a healthy source. They are incandescent, 100% energy efficient and healthier for your eyes.

The high energy light emitted from digital screens is causing irreversible damage to our eyes by deteriorating the retinas.

Damage to the retinas – the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye – is the biggest cause of central blindness – particularly for the millions of children who are exposed to digital screens earlier than ever.

Lead researcher Dr Celia Sanchez-Ramos said: ‘It is paramount for adults and parents to act now and protect themselves from further damage.

Staring at digital screens for several hours can cause irreversible damage to the retinas, potentially  leading to central blindness, a new study claims

Currently, there are approximately 900 million devices. Of those, 70 million are used by children in the US without eye protection such as a protective screen or glasses.

The study, conducted at University Complutense of Madrid in Spain, analyzed and compared the results of two previous studies.

The first exposed the retinas of rats to tablet screens emitting white LED light, one group with filters and the other group without filters.

After three months of exposure to white LED light, the rats exposed to tablets without filters experienced approximately a 23 percent increase in retinal cell death, which can lead to a loss of vision.

HOW YOU CAN BEAT RETINA DAMAGE

Adele

The ‘Hello’ hitmaker hates the way technology has taken over lives and is convinced wireless internet and devices will wipe out the world over the next quarter of decade.

She explained: “People would rather have a photo to show to people than actually enjoy a moment. It’s weird–when I first started out, nearly 10 years ago, no one had their phones out. I’d go onstage to people. Now I go onstage to 18,000 phones. It’s pretty because of the lights . . . but no one is actually looking at the world–they’re on their phones all the time. Also, this Wi-Fi, you watch, it’s going to f***ing’ kill our insides . . . it’s just floating around. I’m telling you, we’ll find out in 25 years.”

The 28-year-old singer used to be a “massive drinker” and chain-smoker but she now limits her alcohol intake and has quit the cigarettes since becoming a mother to her three-year-old son Angelo and undergoing surgery on her vocal cords.

She explained to Vanity Fair magazine: “Having a hangover with a child is torture. Just imagine an annoying three year old who knows something’s wrong; it’s hell.

“I’m too scared to ever take drugs. I used to love to be drunk, but as I got more famous I would wake up the next morning and think, ‘What the f**l did I say and who the f**k did I say it to?’ I never had blackouts, but when you’re drunk and you go to a party, you’ll talk to anyone. I can see from an outsider’s perspective that I will never write songs as good as the ones that are on ’21’, but I’m not as indulgent as I was then, and I don’t have time to fall apart like I did then.

“I was completely off my face writing that album, and a drunk tongue is an honest one. I would drink two bottles of wine, and I would chain-smoke. Then I’d write the lyrics down and the next morning think, ‘F**k, that’s quite good.’ Then I’d find the melody. But since I’ve had my baby, I’m not as carefree as I used to be. I’m scared of a lot of things now because I don’t want to die; I want to be around for my kid.

“I’m very cautious, whereas I was never cautious before. I would never have done anything before that would make me die, but now I go out of my way to avoid anything that is remotely dangerous–like walking along a sidewalk. I’d rather walk on the grass or a lawn, rather than the pavement, in case a car crashes into me.”

State kept secret guidelines on safe cell phone use

The effect of this news being carried by the media, is that Dr. David Carpenter and Dr. Mottus were invited to speak on the Thom Hartmann radio show and explained what we’ve been trying to get to the public for a decade. Thom is pretty conservative—for an exhippy liberal—so this was impressive.

If you can keep to submitting research, I suggest that you call Thom and speak on his program: (202) 808-9925. He is the most brilliant, well-informed radio host today, having written over 20 books on US History, autism, and pertinent issues. Be nice!

SACRAMENTO — For years, state health officials kept secret a set of guidelines meant to inform the public about the risks associated with cell phone use and the best practices to avoid potential harm.

On Thursday, the California Department of Public Health released the guidelines, which advise cell phone users to keep the devices away from their bodies, keep calls short and to use the speaker phone on lengthy calls. The guidelines were released only after a Sacramento Superior Court judge indicated she would order them to be disclosed, and after The Chronicle told the state it was publishing a news story about the case.

The health department’s lawyers had argued in court that the guidelines were never formally approved by the agency and that releasing them to the public would cause unnecessary panic.

How this sign put Berkeley in the center of the cellphone safety debate

City of Berkeley becomes the first to require cellphone retailers to display warnings about radiation

The Big Short – maybe the most important Hollywood film in years
Last night I watched The Big Short — maybe the most important Hollywood film in years. This true story is a powerful and eloquent invitation to wake up to the sheer depravity at the core of the system of commerce.

The fact that the film got nominated for 5 Oscars including Best Picture is a huge sign that there are way more people waking up than we ever thought. The wrongs may not be getting righted as quickly as we’d like, but it is happening.

The reality of this shift is clearly evidenced by this news last week from Ontario. After years of obvious problems, Hydro One finally admitted that rural ‘smart’ meters do not work, and has decided to pull the plug on 36,000 of them — to start. We will see more utilities begin to do likewise. [UPDATE: BC Hydro just announced plans to remove 88,000 meters suspected of failure.]

Costing ratepayers billions, smart meters are actually designed to unlawfully harvest detailed data of the in-home activities of occupants without their knowledge or consent.

As reported by the National Post:

“Astonishing,” was the reaction from Lanark-area MPP Randy Hillier, who has been deluged with complaints about Hydro One billing and smart-meter suspicions.

“I’ve been banging my head against the wall for the last five years, saying we’ve got problems with smart meters in rural Ontario.” Since first being elected in 2007, no single issue has attracted as much attention in his riding, he said.

For the purpose of clarification: at this time Hydro One is not planning to uninstall smart meters and replace with analogs — but rather to manually read rural customers’ meters quarterly, and estimate the months in between, because the wireless reporting is simply not working.

More than 10,000 billing complaints have been filed with the Ontario Ombudsman, and the Auditor General of Ontario released a scathing report, calling out the smart metering program as a total flop.

Hydro One was the first major utility in Canada to deploy so-called ‘smart’ meters upon an unsuspecting customer base. The price tag for rollout, paid for by the people of Ontario, was $2 billion — which was $900M over budget.

Go Green, or Go Greed?

For those new to this topic, here’s the skinny. Smart utility meters are being deployed worldwide under the banner of climate action. But they typically increase energy usage, and a high-level industry executive has admitted that the data collected by the surreptitious devices will be worth “a lot more” than the electricity itself.

Portland State University recently published a brilliant report on the morally-bankrupt surveillance agenda behind smart meters. The industry-gutting report is titled “The Neoliberal Politics of ‘Smart’: Electricity Consumption, Household Monitoring, and the Enterprise Form,” and excerpts can be read at Smart Grid Awareness here.

Customers are not being informed how their constitutional rights are being violated for the purposes of a for-profit home surveillance network. Nor how this technology has caused thousands of fires which have resulted in several deaths. Nor how our bodies are being affected by pulsed microwave radiation exponentially stronger than cell phones, as shown in Take Back Your Power.

If there wasn’t an avalanche of facts to back all of this up, it might sound too unbelievable to be true. But we live in strange times.
We Can Handle The Truth

Just like the banking system, the energy system has likewise become rotten to the core. To change both will require a complete overhaul and the embrace of a challenge to our comfort zone.

It is both harrowing and exciting for one to discover that there are major societal programs which are simply manufactured lies fueled by the idea of lack. That there’s not enough energy, food, resources, money. In reality, there is enough for all life to survive — and to thrive. It is provable

fact that these truths have been suppressed.

Case in point: a 1971 de-classified US Army briefing actually calls for the secretization of solar

technology which has greater than 20% efficiency (see page 14). This was back in 1971! And, of course, it’s in the name of national security and property interests.

Meanwhile, the energy mafia in Nevada just decreed a 40% fee hike for solar-producing customers, while reducing the amount paid for excess power sold to the grid, effectively killing the solar industry there.

There is a war on energy. When we understand the level of corruption involved, the implications are enormous. And we must act to solve this problem.

I believe that the suppression of solutions is a dam ready to burst. And I’m optimistic of our passing through this dark night successfully, as we are learning to connect and serve the higher good. There is really no other choice.

PrivacyPrivacy violation at heart of city’s potential plan to ‘mine’ smart meters: Expert

The City of Toronto should not turn smart meters into snitch meters, a globally-recognized privacy expert says.

Dr. Ann Cavoukian said Toronto Mayor John Tory’s comment that the city would “mine” residents’ water and hydro usage data to figure out how many homes are vacant – the first step in his proposal to levy a special property tax on speculators – raises privacy red flags.

“I’m so appalled by this because it’s people’s private information. That’s what private property means. It’s private,” said Cavoukian, a three-term Ontario privacy commissioner and the executive director of the Privacy and Big Data Institute at Ryerson University. “I just think they haven’t a clue what they’re doing here in terms of how inappropriate it is – it is completely contrary to the law.

So few understand (or even want to understand) the severity and immediacy of the growing challenges that we must collectively face if we are to survive much longer on this planet. More and more data is surfacing about the dangers of atmospheric particulate pollution and radiation exposure. At the same time the current administration is doing its best to completely dismantle every imaginable environmental and human health protection law. Donald Trump has become the new and most frightening face yet of the military industrial / fossil fuel industry complex, though ultimately he is only a puppet in the power structure play. Those currently in control are now more dangerous than ever before, how close are we to the trigger being pulled on WWlll?

Facial recognition is everywhere – but so are tools to defeat it

Apart from celebrities and high-profile fugitives, most people take for granted the ability to walk around in public without being identified by strangers, blissfully detached from their names and personal history. But more recently, this basic concept of public anonymity has been rapidly eroding.

Thanks to the rise of social media, ubiquitous cameras, internet-connected devices, and massive police facial recognition databases, more than half the U.S. adult population can now be near-instantly identified and tracked on the street simply by revealing their face. In response, privacy-minded engineers and activists have been fighting back with tech of their own.

Amazon wants you to put their new camera in your bedroom

Products like the Amazon Echo are proof of a strange new shift in our culture. Suddenly people are okay with having a device in their homes that they know is listening to them. They’re voluntarily inserting electronic devices into their private lives, which are capable of spying on them and sending the data to private corporations and governments.

At some point our society accepted the idea that trading our privacy for a minor convenience is totally worth it, which is something that would surely be mind-blowing to previous generations. However, that social acceptance is about to be pushed to a whole new level. Today, Amazon introduced a new device to their Echo line of products, called the Echo Look.

FBI and NSA outsource their harassment of Targeted Individuals and Watchlisted Individuals to private firms

The Privatization of Government-sponsored Cyber-stalking

(INTELLIHUB) — One of the reasons that the government is consistently “Chicken Littling” us with threats of extremism is money. Security is a multi-billion dollar revenue generator for the National Security Racketeering Network and Private Security Companies run by former ex-federal employees.

The operations of the private companies run the gamut from street-level tasking to tactical and offensive, weaponized-software deployment against innocent Americans. Now the U.S. has its own groups of militarized and federalized cyber-warriors. The most common groups are the FBI’s DITU — Data Intercept Technology Unit (run by an individual with a degree in law and psychology), the NSA of course, The NSA TAO (Tailored Access Operations), and Cyber-Command. Both the NSA and Cyber-Command are based at Fort Meade in Maryland.

EMF controversy exposed

By Dr. Mercola

Cell phones were first introduced in the 1980s, became widely available in the U.S. during the 1990s, and today we’re living in a society where cellphone-only households are no longer the exception; they’re the norm.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which classified cell phones as possible carcinogens in 2011, suggested during the late ’90s that a study looking into the relationship between cell phones and cancer made sense. In 2000, the Interphone study was initiated.

When its results were finally released (years behind its scheduled completion date), there was controversy over the results.

However, the Interphone Study Group did eventually acknowledge that “heavy users” of cell phones had an approximately doubled risk of glioma, a life threatening and often-fatal brain tumor, after 10 years of cell phone use.

The most shocking part of their finding is their definition of a “heavy user” —someone using a cell phone for two to two and a half hours per month!

With 5G rising on the horizon, it’s an exciting time to be an RF engineer. As we embark on the road to 5G, the next-generation wireless communications system, there are countless challenges and opportunities emerging for the engineering community. 5G represents both an evolution and a revolution of mobile technologies that reaches the various high level goals that have been published to date by various members of the wireless ecosystem.

5G is widely seen as the generation of wireless that will enable cellular to expand into a completely new set of use, case, and vertical markets. While 5G is generally seen in technology that delivers ultrabroadband services, including HD and ultraHD video streaming, 5G technology will also enable cellular to enter the world of machines. It will contribute to autonomous vehicles and be used to connect millions of industrial sensors and a multitude of wearable consumer devices, to name a few applications.

The evolutionary path to 5G consists of incremental enhancements of 4G in the conventional cellular bands and extending up in frequency to emerging bands in the 3 GHz to 6 GHz range. Massive MIMO has industry momentum and will evolve from first systems based on LTE to adopt new waveforms designed to improve throughput, latency, and cell efficiency.

How a telecom bill is about to strip local authority

On March 17th, the City of Nevada City received an alarming letter from the League of California Cities (LCC). The League, a consortium of California cities that influence policy decisions, sent an Action Alert putting all cities on notice about a bill that would ultimately usurp all local control in regard to wireless and small cell telecommunications. i.e. cell towers and antennas installations.

As stated in the letter, “This proposal would prohibit local discretionary review of “small cell” wireless antennas, including equipment, located on existing structures, located on new poles, structures, or non-poll structures. The proposal preempts adopted local land use plans by mandating that “small cells” be allowed in all zones as the use by right, including all residential zones.”

This bill also includes a de facto exemption of CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act, precluding all public consideration “such as aesthetics, nuisance, and environmental impacts of these facilities, all of which are particularly important.”

CA Senate SB-649 April 26 Testimony

Scientists For Wired Technology: 4/26/17 Mark Graham Testimony to the CA Senate the Governance and Finance Committee

Good morning, Senators. My name is Mark Graham and I represent Scientists for Wired Technology. In the Science marches across the country this past weekend one sign read, “At the start of every disaster movie is a scientist being ignored.”

SB649 is a disaster movie. It would bring cell phone tower antennas from where they are currently placed, 200 feet in the air and thousands of feet away from homes, to only 20 feet in the air and 20 feet from homes – 2nd story bedroom windows.

Please . . . don’t ignore . . . our best scientists. This will create a public health nightmare with a wide range of short term and long term health impacts.

Small cell radiation is pulsed, modulated radiofrequency microwave radiation. I will call it RFR for short.

In December, 2014, a California Medical Association resolution stated that peer-reviewed scientific evidence demonstrates adverse biological effects of RFR including immune system dysfunction, altered brain development, sleep and memory disturbances, sperm dysfunction, heart damage and brain tumors.

In May 2016, Dr. Ronald Melnick, the lead designer of the National Toxicology Program’s 16-year, $25 million study of the cancer causing properties of cell phone RFR, said that . . .

“The hypothesis that RFR causes health effects has now been proved . . . we saw increases of gliomas, brain cancers, and schwannomas of the heart … [pause] . . . The same cells that became cancerous in rats are the cells that have been reported to develop into tumors in [humans].”

The Committee should reject this bill because RFR is hazardous to human health. [pause] It penetrates the brain, the heart, and the reproductive organs, causing injury to all of them. It also causes early dementia for people in their 40’s and 50’s. This bill will create chronic health problems for millions of Californians every day.

Imagine if you cannot sleep in your home, you have a pounding migraine headache and ringing in your ears because of radiation from a small cell. You can’t function at work or at school the next day. The Committee should require the bill’s author to prove that, as they will be installed and operated, these small cells will not create a public health hazard. Californians need that assurance before you vote SB.649 through today.

DDT, Vioxx, and tobacco are all products that were claimed to be safe but were known by industry at that time to be hazardous.

The best reason a local government could have for saying NO to small cells is to protect the health and safety of its residents. This bill would violate Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution, which guarantees our inalienable right to pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.

Last Friday, I hand delivered to each of you this list of over 100 scientific studies, including the NTP study and other studies from 2016: studies we entered into the public record on 7/15/15 and 4/4/17. This substantial scientific evidence in the public record was ignored by the SB.649 bill analysts.

Russia well understands the hazards of RFR and is not installing small cells or 5G. Instead, it is bringing a fiber optic to every home and business, like the city of San Francisco. We need to face the truth in order to avoid the disaster movie of small cells in residential neighborhoods.

SB649 is unconstitutional because it would violate Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution, which says, “All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.” The hazardous radiation allowed by SB.649 would harm California residents’ health and safety.

Federal RFR guidelines do not protect against health hazards. Please don’t ignore the scientists. Don’t create a public health disaster.

Electrosmog and autoimmune disease

DOI: 10.1007/s12026-016-8825-7

Marshall, T.G. & Heil, T.J.R. Immunol Res (2017) 65: 129. doi:

Abstract

Studies in mice have shown that environmental electromagnetic waves tend to suppress the murine immune system with a potency similar to NSAIDs, yet the nature of any Electrosmog effects upon humans remains controversial. Previously, we reported how the human Vitamin-D receptor (VDR) and its ligand, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D (1,25-D), are associated with many chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. We have shown how olmesartan, a drug marketed for mild hypertension, acts as a high-affinity partial agonist for the VDR, and that it seems to reverse disease activity resulting from VDR dysfunction. We here report that structural instability of the activated VDR becomes apparent when observing hydrogen bond behavior with molecular dynamics, revealing that the VDR pathway exhibits a susceptibility to Electrosmog. Further, we note that characteristic modes of instability lie in the microwave frequency range, which is currently populated by cellphone and WiFi communication signals, and that the susceptibility is ligand dependent. A case series of 64 patient-reported outcomes subsequent to use of a silver-threaded cap designed to protect the brain and brain stem from microwave Electrosmog resulted in 90 % reporting “definite” or “strong” changes in their disease symptoms. This is much higher than the 3–5 % rate reported for electromagnetic hypersensitivity in a healthy population and suggests that effective control of environmental Electrosmog immunomodulation may soon become necessary for successful therapy of autoimmune disease.

Ana Belen Fernandez Alvares, Covert Harassment U.K.

Call for assistance

Dear All,

The organisation receives amounts from one donor of £5 per month and more than one person has been calling from abroad to my mobile phone with the result of more than £140 to pay this month out of my own bank account. Covert Harassment UK Ltd does not earn money from the voluntary work it undertakes and I will therefore no longer answering the phone to any unknown number to the detriment of any UK TI.  It has been happening from much before Covert Harassment UK Ltd was created and it has got worse with people calling diplomatic embassies, employers, sending emails and other harassment pretending to be other people over the phone with the V2K voice and phone library.

It is a shame that people do not value other people’s effort in fighting for human rights, the effort to liaise and create legislation and awareness of the continuous killing in the UK and Ireland  but I would not have expected anything from cowards, and those of you know who you are and what I mean, lies, corruption, money received and emails included.

The company will be receiving emails that might not reach me due to hacking, Skype address messages that can be hacked and letters with pre-paid envelopes and paper. They will likely take the time to steal from my house like they did in Birmingham, two years back and in London apart from destroying my body trying to prove they can kill the whole of the UK and Ireland like they do to any TI.

Many thanks.

Best Regards,

Ana Belen Fernandez Alvarez
PROJECT GRIFFIN – FRIDAY 5TH MAY 2017 – Sign the petition 

Response to James Broomfield,

I am really grateful for the invitation but due to personal circumstances I am unable to attend.

The project is extremely worthwhile for the UK with more information about cybernetic attacks to businesses, infrastructure and microwave technology impact needed to avoid lone wolf, individual and attacks to businesses.   The associated use of the brain biosignature (unique code per person resulting from brain activity that can be scanned using satellite systems), use of subliminal messages from childhood together with business fraud and patent stealing  using remote neural monitoring software should be explained to the community in order for them to be able to comment to you and get a resolution via the secret services when it happens. That will be the only way to manage terrorism and attempts by foreign governments to use the technology on crowds and on a bigger scale every day twenty-four hours. Individuals and businesses are reluctant to come forward due to lack of knowledge and non-existance  of a support network to deal with this urgent issue with the electro-magnetic radiation linked to the central nerve system commands causing neurological illness, cancers, infertility, violence, poverty, higher drug incited consumption due to subliminal messages and changes in brain activity together with  the use of police, politicians, military and civil society brains contained in their databases and obtained through hacking or purchased to any internal or external party.  ‘Guinea Pigs: Technologies of Mind Control’ by Dr John Hall is recommended with Neuralink by Elon Musk and Facebook following in the use of remote neural monitoring software to record human thoughts and manage brain activity.

The existing legislation in other countries such as the USA, Russia and the Philippines should be implemented in the UK and Ireland and for that purpose I created a petition in my webpagewww.covertharassment.org.

Wi-Fi in schools

Hi All

You might have seen the latest WiFI survey done by ARPANSA and published on their web site

//www.arpansa.gov.au/radiationprotection/wifi/index.cfm

The paper link below.

//academic.oup.com/rpd/article/doi/10.1093/rpd/ncw370/2883282/Exposure-to-Radiofrequency-Electromagnetic-Fields?keytype=ref&ijkey=bbI522JD7RsTs5P

ORSAA  does not dispute that RF-EMR power density levels when measured will only be a fraction of the current ARPANSA standard , which  is based on thermal limits. However, we feel this is an example of a very poor scientific measurement study that has been designed to minimise the power density readings as you will see from our letter to the editor below.

More time should have been spent in the planning of this survey. The results of this survey are little more than general background readings and nothing to do with classroom WiFi and as suchis not very useful for understanding typical exposures experienced by school children.

Where science and big money collide…

Where science and big money collide, we enter a strange “twilight zone” of science politics, where various methods are applied to neutralize “inconvenient” science.

One of the examples of such collision between science and big money is presented in, as always, a very good story from Louis Slesin: ‘Peer Review in the Raw’. From his long-time perspective as Editor of the ‘Microwave News’ Louis is showing, yet again, that science and politics in EMF are a “toxic mix” for science.

The story of Henry Lai and N.P. Singh reminded me of my first publication in EMF arena.

In 2002 my research group published article that made worldwide headlines: ‘Non-thermal activation of the hsp27/p38MAPK stress pathway by mobile phone radiation in human endothelial cells: molecular mechanism for cancer- and blood-brain barrier-related effects.’ by Leszczynski D, Joenväärä S, Reivinen J, Kuokka R; Differentiation. 2002 May; 70(2-3):120-9.

School left reeling after sudden death of teenage pupil Elle

The funeral of a young girl who died suddenly this week is to take place today.

Teenager Elle Trowbridge, a pupil at Drumragh Integrated College, was found dead on Monday.

It is the second tragedy to hit the school in five months.

Clare McSorley (18), a former pupil, who knew Elle, passed away last November.

Intel cleared to build second huge plant at its Kildare base

THE IRISH SUBSIDIARY of tech multinational Intel has secured planning permission which could help the firm create a major new chip-manufacturing facility.

Last year, Intel Ireland submitted a revised planning application for an 88,000 square metre manufacturing plant in Collinstown Industrial Park, Leixlip.

This application has been granted by Kildare County Council and could result in the development of a plant to manufacture new semiconductor technology out of Intel’s base in the county.

Playing with iPads and smartphones ‘severely stunts toddlers’ speech’

Putting babies in front of iPads before the age of two stunts speech development, a new study suggests.

In Britain children under the age of three spend an average of 44 minutes a day using smartphones and tablets but it is the first time researchers have shown it can impact language skills.

Researchers from the University of Toronto and The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto found that every 30 minutes of screen time increased the risk of delayed speech by 49pc.

The Greek AMA recommends reducing EMFs/RFs to protect public health

The Athens Medical Association of Athens, Greece, held a conference April 1st regarding “Non-Ionizing Radiation and Its Effects on Human Health” where scientific lectures were presented along with 16 recommendations to reduce exposures and human health adverse effects.  Question:  Why hasn’t the American Medical Association done the same?  Good question?

Here are those 16 Recommendations for Wireless Use Safety:

▪ Use your cell phone with caution and make brief calls as necessary

▪ Children under the age of 14 should make limited use of cell phones

▪ Do not put your cell phone in contact with your head

▪ Do not use your cell phone inside a car, train, aeroplane, or elevator

▪ Restrict cell phone use when children or pregnant women are near.

▪ Keep mobile phones away from your body

▪ When using your cell phone keep a safe distance from others

▪ Do not carry or keep your cell phone inside your pockets

▪ At night, disengage Wi Fi on your router and switch off your mobile phone.

▪ Do not play games on-line and if you do, switch to airplane mode

▪ Hands Free option is always preferable though may not be completely safe

▪ Wireless connections may increase your exposure to microwave radiation

▪ Limit Wi Fi connectivity and use hard wired connection whenever possible

▪ When signal strength is weak do not attempt to make a call

▪ If a landline is available make use of this as a preferred option

▪ Disengage Wi Fi, Bluetooth & Data options from your phone when are not needed [sic] [1,2]

MN state bills for removing local authority in regulating (5G) small cells stopped

The following info. might be useful in stopping your state’s bills that remove local authority in regulating (5G) small cell facilities and what you can do to work with your local government.

If you haven’t heard about 5G yet, it is the use of millimeter waves which enables faster speeds (enabling virtual reality).  Because it is using higher frequencies which don’t penetrate buildings as well as current cell phone and wi-fi signals, implementation will require many small cell towers just a few hundred feet apart everywhere, including residential zones.  200 meters apart maximum, 100 meters for autonomous vehicles.  Several small cell towers will be deployed every block //www.rcrwireless.com/20161020/network-infrastructure/att-outlines-5g-network-architecture-tag4

———————————————————————————————————

Across the country, the wireless industry has been pushing for state laws to install small cell networks that pre-empt local authority to manage them in the right of way, which would include utility poles and any other property the local authority has an interest in and has made available for commercial purposes.  Some states with pending or passed state bills include AR, AZ, CA, CO, FL, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, MN, MO, NB, NC, NE, OH, PA, RI, TX, VA, and WA

//backchannel.com/handcuffing-cities-to-help-telecom-giants-7d13cbb600b7
In Minnesota,  HF739, SF561 were introduced in early 2017.  The bills would have allowed small cell wireless equipment to be placed on utility poles, signs, kiosks, traffic signals, light poles, or arches without the ability of a city to adequately apply its zoning authority. Additionally, it would have prevented cities from negotiating rates, permit timelines, and maintenance as it relates to the installation of emerging wireless infrastructure.

//www.lmc.org/page/1/SmallCellWirelessBill.jsp

However, the League of Minnesota Cities was strongly opposed to the bills, and their efforts contributed to stopping the bills from moving forward in April 2017.

//www.lmc.org/page/1/smallcellwirelessupdate.jsp

Here are some helpful documents put out by the League:

• a very good fact sheet //www.lmc.org/media/document/1/factsheetsmallcellwireless.pdf?inline=true  this fact sheet stated that the 5G network would be a complement, not a substitute, for high speed broadband, and that cities are responsible for considering public health, safety, and aesthetics.

• a talking points sheet  //www.lmc.org/media/document/1/talkingpointssmallcellwireless.pdf?inline=true

• and an information sheet about cell towers, small cells, and DAS, attached.  It made the important following points:

◦ in general, federal law (1996 TCA) preserves local zoning and land use authority

◦ cities can regulate height and location of towers

◦ to prevent wireless carriers from claiming utility status as justification for installation, your city can change its ordinance to specifically exclude wireless facilities from its definition of utility  (check your city ordinance’s definition of what’s included as a “utility”

The Orwellian world of IoT smart beds

“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984

Even Orwell didn’t envision when, even in the darkness of the night, every movement WILL be scrutinized if you purchase the growing line of internet connectedsmart beds. Take for example,

Innovation and the IoT Are Making Our Beds Really Smart

New technologies are reaching everywhere, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is giving a new life to our common household items. Nowadays, one of the goals tech companies have is to make all devices smart, which means giving them the ability to communicate, which is often done using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivities.

With technology spreading at this pace, we are developing the habit of taking gadgets to our beds. This is becoming really bad for us, as we are not taking advantage of the amazing memory foam mattresses available nowadays, we have less sleep quality and deteriorate the relationships with our significant others.

Regardless, the tech market is booming and beds do not escape this fever.

//www.emfacts.com/2017/05/the-orwellian-world-of-iot-smart-beds/

Comment from Prof. Olle Johansson:

Also see our papers about metal beds and microwave-based effect amplification through reflection:

Hallberg O, Johansson O, “Sleep on the right side – Get cancer on the left?”, Pathophysiology 2010; 17: 157-160

In this study, we show that a high prevalence of breast cancer and melanoma on the left side of the body may be a logical consequence of sleeping in beds having mattresses containing wave-reflecting metal springs. We found that people tend to sleep for longer periods on their right side, apparently to avoid disturbance by the heartbeat. This puts the left side farther away from the field-attenuating influence of the metal springs in the mattress; thus the left side will spend, on average, more time exposed to stronger combined fields from incident and reflected waves. This hypothesis may also explain why body parts farthest away from the mattress (trunk and upper arms for men; lower limbs and hips for women) have higher melanoma rates than the sun-exposed face area.

Hallberg Ö, Huttunen P, Johansson O, “Cancer incidence vs. population average sleep duration on spring mattresses”, Adv Stud Med Sci 2014; 2: 1-15

The conclusions of this investigation are that body-resonant radiation may influence health negatively if concentrated by metal spring mattresses during sleep at night. A simple way to reduce cancer risks may be to exchange the metal spring mattress for a non-metal one like a futon or a foam type.

If you want to know what it has been like to do research on the potential health effects of cell phone radiation, please read this story. I hope it will change the way you think about the peer review process and the power of entrenched interests to manipulate what gets published in the scientific literature –and, ultimately, shape public opinion.

Blue Light has a dark side

Exposure to blue light at night, emitted by electronics and energy-efficient lightbulbs, harmful to your health.

Until the advent of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in (relative) darkness. Now, in much of the world, evenings are illuminated, and we take our easy access to all those lumens pretty much for granted.

But we may be paying a price for basking in all that light. At night, light throws the body’s biological clock—the circadian rhythm—out of whack. Sleep suffers. Worse, research shows that it may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

But not all colors of light have the same effect. Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood—seem to be the most disruptive at night. And the proliferation of electronics with screens, as well as energy-efficient lighting, is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, especially after sundown.

//www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/blue-light-has-a-dark-side 
So am now researching to find how we can protect ourselves 

This is a new area but doctors have long known that the “blue light” impedes production of melatonin, which is needed to make serotonin–and therefore can cause insomnia, depression, cancers and early onset dementia, etc.

Here are two sources for products we need to get:

Blue Light Reducing Glasses:   It is becoming widely known that exposure to blue light from our devices and artificial lighting in the evening is reducing melatonin production. Melatonin promotes sleep and helps to rid our body of cancer cells at night.

You can increase your brain’s production of this hormone by wearing these glasses after the sun goes down in the evening. If you wear reading glasses, get this pair to go over them.

If you don’t like the way these glasses look, spoke to my Santa Fe oculist and heard about Joya’s Recharge, which is a clear finish for glasses that stops the blue light from monitors. Other makers include:

I also recommend that you download the free software f.lux to your devices, which will reduce your blue light exposure in the evenings.

This amber incandescent light bulb is also a great option for a reading lamp.

For your eyes to get their proper stimulus to secrete melatonin, the dimming function of f.lux mimics normal light changes at dusk and is FREE: //justgetflux.com/

HOT TIPS FOR EYE HEALTH These steps were used for thousands of years to treat eye problems by monks in Asia and rediscovered by Dr. William H. Bates and Dr. Moshe’ Feldenkrais.

These are simple and easy to do:

BLINKING–in today’s lifestyle we often stare at screens, etc. and forget to blink which relaxes the eye muscles and provides much-needed moisture. If your eyes are dry, try saline or homeopathic eye drops.

PALMING–You simply cup your hands over your eyes so you do not touch the eyes, but keep them in darkness so the nerves can rest. Note if you see lights, shapes, colors–or can you see a dark black, which means your eye nerves are resting? Continue exploring these moves and you will access that black that signals your eyes are at rest.

SUNNING–Also used in Asia and rediscovered by Dr. Bates and Dr. Feldenkrais. Sit with your eyes closed in mid-morning or mid-afternoon sun and slowly turn your head right and left so the sun’s warmth releases your eye muscles and nerves.

GENTLY SCRUNCH both your eyes using your facial muscles to sink them deeper into your skull. Then scrunch one eye at a time, lightly touching the other eye to make sure it is not scrunching.

PALMING, CHECK AGAIN if you see lights, shapes, colors–or can you see a dark black, which means your eye nerves are resting? Imagine seeing wet black velvet….

The Internet of Things Poses Human Health Risks: Scientists Question the Safety of Untested 5G Technology at International Conference

WE ONLY NEED ONE SENATOR TO STOP S19 and S88!!! 

Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves – a type of electromagnetic radiation utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data. However, 5 G applications will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves – to allow ultra-high rates of data to be transmitted in the same amount of time as compared with previous deployments of microwave radiation.

For years, the U.S., Russian and Chinese defense agencies have been developing weapons that rely on the capability of this electromagnetic technology to induce unpleasant burning sensations on the skin as a form of crowd control. Millimeter waves are utilized by the U.S. Army in crowd dispersal guns called Active Denial Systems. Dr. Paul Ben-Ishai pointed to research that was commissioned by the U.S. Army to find out why people ran away when the beam touched them.

“If you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.”

Over 80 Ohio Cities to Challenge Wireless Facilities Law 

REJECTING ‘RIGHT OF WAY’ TAKEOVER

//www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWE8EC-bqEI

Although their basis to sue is different, the Santa Fe City Council has passed the “small cell antennas” and these testimonies give you a heads-up of how our lives will be changed.

UPDATE–NOW MORE THAN 80 OHIO CITIES REJECTING “RIGHT OF WAY” TAKEOVER SUING WIRELESS PROLIFERATION

Very intelligent Cleveland Attorney and Mayor. This video covers the many issues Santa Fe will be looking at re: City fees (very minimal for problems created, but great profits for the TeleComs), proliferating antenna poles in historic and residential districts, citizens losing control of esthetics and property values, constant maintenance presence by TeleComs of their poles, uncontrolled placement of large power boxes on streets, treelines, etc. and how small cells have worse service near antennas.

THESE HAVE BEEN PASSED BY OUR CITY COUNCIL. If you wish to contact them with your concerns:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Members of the Central Ohio Mayors and Managers Association (“COMMA”) announced today the filing of legal action seeking to overturn S.B. 331 passed by the General Assembly late last December.

COMMA, an association of 17 cities within the Columbus region, is also being joined by members of the Greater Dayton Mayors and Managers Association and other Ohio cities seeking court action to overturn a law which they believe violates the Ohio Constitution. SB 331 was passed by the Ohio General Assembly during the lame duck session at the end of 2016. The bill was signed by Governor Kasich December 19, 2016 and is set to become effective March 21.

The legislation, which concerns a variety of unrelated matters including the regulation of pet stores in Ohio, had a provision added to it, without any legislative hearings or study of the issue, allowing AT&T, along with three other service providers (Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile) to attach small cell wireless antennas to municipally owned structures within the right of way of any Ohio city.

“Senate Bill 331 effectively prohibits cities from regulating the placement of wireless facilities in our communities. This will impact the streetscapes of our communities and reduce area property values,” said COMMA Chairman and Bexley Mayor Ben Kessler.

The bases for the legal challenge to the provision are two-pronged. First, the lawsuit alleges that the bill violates the “single subject” rule laid out in the Ohio Constitution, which states that “no bill shall contain more than one subject, which shall be clearly expressed in its title.” Second, the provision exclusively applies to municipalities – not townships, counties or other political subdivisions. The general applicability of a law state-wide is a necessary criterion in overriding Ohio’s long-standing Home Rule authority that permits cities to govern themselves unless pre-empted by a general law of the state. It is imperative that municipalities retain local control over decisions such as the location of small cell wireless antennas within their public right of way. To allow telecommunications companies unrestricted ability to install their infrastructure wherever they please is in blatant violation of the Home Rule rights guaranteed municipalities in Ohio’s Constitution.

“Ohio municipalities embrace the rapid deployment of small cell technology for our residents and businesses, however that must be balanced with the orderly management of public rights of way and publicly owned properties,” Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel said. Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther went on to state “Citizens expect that their community leaders are able to protect their interests, both on a safety front and for sound management of the installation of infrastructure and this bill strips municipalities ability to protect the interests of their citizens.”

While the General Assembly gave deference to big business over the Constitutional authority granted to Ohio municipalities, this lawsuit will seek to restore that authority to where it rightfully belongs. The law, if sustained, allows wireless companies to place facilities, including towers up to 50 feet high and equipment of 28 cubic feet (the size of a small refrigerator), in the local public right-of-way. Members of COMMA include the following cities: Bexley, Canal Winchester, Columbus, Dublin, Delaware, Gahanna, Grandview Heights, Grove City, Hilliard, New Albany, Pickerington, Powell, Reynoldsburg, Upper Arlington, Westerville, Whitehall & Worthington. For more information, contact COMMA Chairman & Bexley Mayor Ben Kessler at (614) 559- 4210 or bkessler@bexley.org    March 20, 2017

Handcuffing Cities to Help Telecom Giants

Carriers are pushing states and the FCC to constrain public rights. They say it’s for the mythical “5G.” We should be very skeptical.

It’s good to be one of the handful of companies controlling data transmission in America. It’s even better — from their perspective — to avoid oversight. And it’s best of all to be a carrier that gets government to actually stop existing oversight. The stagnant telecommunications industry in America has long pursued the second of those goals — avoiding oversight, or even long-range thinking that would favor the interests of all other businesses and all other Americans over those of AT&T, Verizon, Charter, and Comcast — by proclaiming that there is something really magnificent coming any day now from the industry that will make anything regulators are worrying about irrelevant.

Introduced by Senator Hueso

(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Quirk)

(Coauthor: Senator Dodd)

February 17, 2017

SB 649, as amended, Hueso. Wireless telecommunications facilities. Under existing law, a wireless telecommunications collocation facility, as specified, is subject to a city or county discretionary permit and is required to comply with specified criteria, but a collocation facility, which is the placement or installation of wireless facilities, including antennas and related equipment, on or immediately adjacent to that wireless telecommunications collocation facility, is a permitted use not subject to a city or county discretionary permit. Existing law defines various terms for these purposes.This bill would provide that a small cell is a permitted use, not subject to a city or county discretionary permit, if the small cell meets specified requirements. By imposing new duties on local agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would authorize a city or county to require an administrative permit for small cell, as specified. The bill would define the term “small cell” as a particular type of telecommunications facility for these purposes.

How a telecom bill is about to strip local authority

March 24, 2017

Reinette Senum

On March 17th, the City of Nevada City received an alarming letter from the League of California Cities (LCC). The League, a consortium of California cities that influence policy decisions, sent an Action Alert     putting all cities on notice about a bill that would ultimately usurp all local control in regard to wireless and small cell telecommunications. i.e. cell towers and antennas installations.

As stated in the letter, “This proposal would prohibit local discretionary review of “small cell” wireless antennas, including equipment, located on existing structures, located on new poles, structures, or non-poll structures. The proposal preempts adopted local land use plans by mandating that “small cells” be allowed in all zones as the use by right, including all residential zones.”

This bill also includes a de facto exemption of CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act, precluding all public consideration “such as aesthetics, nuisance, and environmental impacts of these facilities, all of which are particularly important.”

The telecommunication industry’s gag order 

Don’t even THINK for a second that you will be able to bring up health concerns to our elected officials: whether they human or animal. Congress passed the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that prohibits state and local governments from denying permit applications for cellular towers based upon the environmental effects of RFR (radiofrequency radiation including microwave radiation).

The FCC then issued a rule consistent with the Telecommunications Act: “No State or local government… may regulate the placement, construction, and modification of personal wireless service facilities on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency emissions to the extent that such facilities comply with the regulations contained in this chapter concerning the environmental effects of such emissions.”

That’s right. Since 1996, when this telecommunications bill was enacted, a gag order has been placed upon the American people regarding negative health impacts and safety concerns due to cell towers. This is why we have seen such an incredible proliferation of cell towers throughout the American landscape; not because they are safe and do no harm, but because we legally can’t discuss or make decisions based upon the negative health impacts even though The World Health Organization officially classifies electromagnetic radiation a possible 2B carcinogen: The same category as lead, DDT, and styrene.

Studies have shown that individuals living near these cell towers have measured reductions in serotonin and melatonin levels, threefold increase in cancer, fatigue, sleep disturbance, headaches, concentration problems, depression, memory problems, durability, cardiovascular problems, hearing disruption, skin problems, dizziness, etc.

THE DAY THE ALARM WENT OFF

It was after the City of Nevada City and City Councilman Duane Strawser (who is our city’s LCC representative) received the LLC’s Action Alert that Strawser called Senator Bill Dodd (co-author of the bill), Senator Ted Gaines, and other representatives. For some of these representatives, Strawser’s phone call was the moment they were first informed about SB 649. They had no idea that this bill had been quietly tucked within the other 135 bills the California legislature is considering.

If SB 649 goes through nearly every single lamppost and telephone pole along your street is going to be strapped with a 5G antenna and nobody will have any say about this. It is the actual intention of the telecom industry to install these “small cells” along all of our roads and on structures including commercial and even residential buildings. With the passing of SB 649 you and I will have no choice in having one of these cell antennas attached to the exterior of our very homes, possibly right next to our beds, and without our consent.

This bill is a Pandora’s box for local authority. This sets a very dangerous precedent that opens the door for any other corporation to come into our California communities and squash local government control in order to deploy any kind of corporate undertaking without the public’s or elected official’s consent.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

We can’t be a surprise that one of the largest (if not the) recipient of telecommunication industry is Senator Ben Hueso, San Diego (D), who is responsible for proposing SB 649 as well as slipping it quietly among the other proposed legislation. The bill is co-authored by Senator Bill Dodd (D), San Francisco Bay and Delta regions, and I would imagine he too is a large recipient of the telecommunication lobbyists.

Ultimately, Hueso and Dodd are throwing every man, woman, and child (and even our bees) under the bus for unabated control of our communities by the telecommunications industry.

This proposal is unconstitutional. It prohibits all local authority to deny the leasing or licensing of publicly owned property except for a few sites such as fire stations.

The LCC also noted “this bill strips local government of the authority to protect the quality of life for residents to protect public property in the public right-of-way from relatively unconstrained access by small cells.”

The League concluded, “under this proposal, local governments would be required to give preferential treatment to one industry that has received the “most favored nation” status under the state law (Note: A “most favored nation” clause is a level of status given to one country (or corporation) by another and enforced by the World Trade Organization. … Countries achieving most favored nation status are given specific trade advantages, such as reduced tariffs on imported goods.). No justification is provided for why this is necessary. This bill strips local government of the authority to protect the quality of life of our residents, and to protect public property and the public right-of-way from relatively unconstrained access by small cells.

Local governments typically encourage new technology into their boundaries because of its potential to dramatically improve the quality of life for the residents. However, this proposal goes too far by requiring local governments to approve “small cells” in all land-use zones, including residential zones, to a ministerial permit, thereby shutting the public out of decisions that could affect the aesthetics of the community and the quality of their environment.”

WHAT WE CAN DO

know we don’t need another fight on our plate, but this is one of those Pandora Boxes that we must do everything in our power to keep closed. I cannot stress how important it is that each and every single one of us pick up the phone and, at the very least, call the following numbers. Call them every day if you can.

On Tuesday, April 4th at 9am, the Senate Energy, Utilities, and Commerce will be holding a public hearing     on SB 649.  Nevada City city staff, councilmembers and I intend to testify at this hearing to protect Nevada City’s historic district because it is completely under threat.

Before April 4th, we need a massive phone, text & email campaign to ward off this bill. We must bombard our elected officials’ efforts and let them know that this is a massive property rights violation, threatens our historic district, our right to privacy, as well as destroys local control over our cities and counties.

When communicating to our representatives do not talk about negative health impacts. There’s a good chance they may hang up on you…. And I wish I were kidding.

Here are the LCC Talking Points:

This proposal shifts local land-use authority away from local governments and puts it squarely into the hands of private interests with complete disregard for any public input.

Governments have a responsibility to protect the quality of life for residents and to protect public property in the public right-of-way.

Local governments typically encourage new technology into the communities, but this proposal goes too far, shutting the public out of decisions that can affect their daily quality-of-life.

We weren’t supposed to see this bill, but miraculously, it was uncovered by the League of California Cities. It’s now our responsibility to stop it!

The 5G network: What you don’t know may kill you

April 3, 2017

Reinette Senum

How would you feel if you knew that an untested technology is being deployed across America with no government oversight, no transparency, no public input, no regulations, and no long-term studies on health and environmental impacts? How would you feel if you knew sensors are rolling out to be installed in everything, from clothing, appliances, building materials, automobiles, cosmetics, toys, computers, furniture, etc, turning our world into the Internet of Everything, as a component of this untested technology? Wouldn’t that be cool; living in a virtual reality where every single object and living thing is connected into a wireless global network? Allowing every single thing we do to be completely monitored and controlled, collecting every bit of data about our lives as we go about our day. Ultimately, all this information will be sold (and hacked) to corporations, nations, and various alphabet agencies to be analyzed, synthesized, and made available for anyone to do as they please because this new untested millimeter wave frequency, known as 5G, is currently being quietly deployed throughout America: under the radar.

Pun intended.

THE EARLY YEARS 

Most of you don’t know this about me, but I was actually an early adopter of wireless technology. In fact, I made a living from it back in 1990-91 when I had the first cellular phone store in Nevada County. It was on E. Main St., directly across from the Grass Valley City Hall, and called Empire Cellular. It was bequeathed to me, name and all, while sitting at the bar of the Nevada City North Ridge Inn with my former high school buddy, Dirk McCall. He was looking for an exit strategy from the business while I was looking for an income. Soon after inheriting Dirk’s cellular phone store I began making a hefty profit from the business. However, with the way I roll, within a year and a half I sold the business for pennies and hitched a ride to Alaska to commercial fish: I had been bored out of my wits. However, it was during that short year and a half stint on East Main that I became enamored with the cellular industry and would become a huge advocate. Once I opened my doors to business I was the local-go to person for your cellular service and installation. You could find me regularly yanking out a car’s dashboard components to insert a cable and pop antennas atop my customers’ cars. At that time the Motorola Bag Phone was all the rage and seemed Star Trekian in its nature. I bestowed upon my customers the merits and benefits of the growing global cellular service world. I was looking forward to the day that we had a sky full of Low Earth Orbiting satellites (LEO); giving us superior cellular capacity in every nook and cranny of the world. Back then I couldn’t wait. Owning the first cellular storefront in Nevada County encouraged me to keep an eye on the industry over the last 25 years, waiting excitedly for its development. However, over the course of those years the telecom industry has fallen out of my favor. Don’t get me wrong, there are many benefits to the wireless world. I’m not debating that. In fact, I must note the irony has not gotten past me that as I write this I’m completely dependent upon a laptop and a wireless modem. It’s just that the 5G network is not just about better and faster cell service. Not-even-close.

THIS IS WHY

It’s not what you think. It certainly wasn’t what I was thinking back in 1991. In fact, I had no idea what this industry had planned for our entire planet. This never became more apparent than during last year’s summer press conference when Tom Wheeler, former head of the CTIA, the vast telecoms lobby-group, and controversial chair of the Federal Communications Commission, proposed an unbridled “massive deployment” of commercial 5G transmitters, launching in 2020. Anticipating “tens of billions of dollars” of economic growth with US telecoms “first out of the gate,” Wheeler informed the American public that they needed to “Stay out of the way of technological development! Turning innovation loose is far preferable to expecting … regulators to define the future.” Those pesky regulators. What do they think they are doing protecting the public? Then with little fanfare, the FCC approved swathes of untested high frequency networks for private sector exploitation – ultimately setting a very dangerous trend: With no mention of health or environmental impacts, oversight, or corporate responsibility.

By year 2020 the telecom industry intends to cover America with over 2 million of these “small cells” installed on every lamp post, on buildings, power poles, basically, everywhere, giving no person, bug, or animal a place to escape.

In addition, those hidden “sensors” I mentioned earlier that will be tucked in every item you buy off a shelf will be monitoring, tracking, and sending out signals, experts have discovered that the skin, our largest organ, does respond to 5G and in fact our sweat ducts can act as antennas and can receive signals. This has not been tested for safety and experts in the field expect a jump in melanoma rates around the nation. Leading health advocates and respected scientists around the world are alarmed, to say the least. Dr. Joel Moskowitz, director of community health studies at the University of California, warns “precaution is warranted before 5G is unleashed on the world.” Former government physicist Dr. Ron Powell points out the plans “would irradiate everyone, including the most vulnerable to harm from radiofrequency radiation: pregnant women, unborn children, young children…the elderly, the disabled, and the chronically ill… It would set a goal of irradiating all environments.” POLITICS OF EVERYTHING The likelihood of you hearing about 5G is close to nil because that’s the way the telecommunication industry wants it. This has been rolling out under the radar as much as an untested, certainly unvetted, technology possibly can. It was after finding out several weeks ago that the California League of Cities uncovered our California legislators attempting to slip SB 649 into the Consent Items like a Trojan Horse among a basket of 350 other pending California bills, I have been forced by my conscience to search even deeper into the 5G technology coming out the other end more and more disturbed and with many more questions than answers. I want to say this again; I have more questions than answers. Don’t count on your local newspaper to cover this. Corporate media seems to have turned a dangerously blind eye on this legislation, ignoring the threat against democracy while the very bill itself was authored by California Senator Ben Hueso  ; one of the biggest recipients of telecom industry contributions in California. In the meantime, the wireless industry is pushing this through so quickly it is ignoring the Internatonal EMF Scientists’ Appeal to the United Nations. As of March 22, 2017, the appeal has received 225 signatures from 41 nations “to the United Nations asking the UN and all its member states in the world, encouraging the World Health Organization (WHO) to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines about health risks, particularly risk to children and fetal development. By not taking action that who is failing to fulfill its role as a preeminent international public health agency.” This is only one reason why I feel we need to slow down the expansionism of the Wireless/G5 network.

Electromagnetic Fields, Martin Blank, PhD Spokesperson from ElectromagneticHealth.org 

Our health is at risk while our state reps are allowing these corporate perpetrators to continue their deployment of technologies while most Americans have no idea what is about to be hoisted upon our biosphere. We have to understand that the higher the G rating, as in 1G, 2G, 3G, etc., the more toxic this technology is. We are now entering uncharted territory known as 5G. Microwave and EMF exposure at the 4G level have already decreased America’s overall health. Under the current 5G plan every square inch of America will be bathed and covered in penetrating and irradiating microwaves like never before. It will be impossible to escape this. Impossible.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

My former business, Empire Cellular, still exists today and is known as Golden Empire Cellular. It resides on Idaho-Marilyn Road in Grass Valley, along with Son’s Development and Sierra Solar; all green businesses. And while one associates wireless technology with the green movement, it is not. If you’re an environmentalist, don’t fool yourself: This technology is the antithesis of “green.”  Any “environmentalist” or environmental organization that says differently should not be trusted. The damage to bees alone is monumental. Studies have already proven the impact on bee colonies with much older and less toxic technology. I can only imagine what the 5G network and its additional 2 millions “small cells” installed throughout our nation is going to do to our food industry if the bees disappear. Lynne Wycherley writes in The Ecologist’s Wireless Pollution ‘Out of Control” as a Corporate Race for 5G Gears Up, “Life’s exquisite electro-physiology is still being discovered. Researchers at Bristol University reported in May that bees’ hairs are highly sensitive to flowers’ delicate EMFs. In controlled trials in Switzerland, bees reacted to mobile-phone signals with high-pitched ‘piping’: a cue to desert a hive. Other studies show that mitochondria, the tiny power houses in our cells, are at risk from our new EMFs. And that even DNA, in its delicate antenna-like structure, may be frequency-sensitive. The long-term, ecological implications of our new, anthropogenic radiation are not known. But peer-reviewed studies revealing harm to birds, tadpoles, trees, other plants, insects, rodents and livestock, offer clues.

IT’S BEEN IN THE MAKING FOR A LONG TIME

This is a technology that has been in the making for nearly 60 years. And while there is a platitude of studies, including government-funded studies that prove the increased risk of cancer and brain tumors, there are equally as many industry-funded research that expels contradictory information and these are dangerous myths that continue to be propagated in the corporate-owned media. Even more alarming is the 1996 Telecommunications Act that bans any local government from making a decision based upon negative health impacts from the wireless industry. In other words, this is a 20 year-old gag-order that was placed upon the American people before they had any clue what an expanded and amped up wireless network could look like. Meanwhile, leaders from around the world     take the harmful effects much more seriously such as “Switzerland, Italy, France, Austria, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Israel, Russia and China have set RF exposure limits 100 to 10,000 times less than the USA. They recognize that there can be non-thermal biological effects from wireless radiation.” Ultimately, these nations are assuming The Precautionary Principle     that states  “if an action or policy has a suspected risk of causing harm to the public, or to the environment, in the absence of scientific consensus (that the action or policy is not harmful), the burden of proof that it is not harmful falls on those taking that action.” For well over 50 years scientists and industry insiders have known that these microwave pulse modulated radiofrequency radiation day-in-and-day-out is very toxic; particularly to pregnant women and children, and yet our leaders allow the telecom industry to continue its expansion, completely unbridled; eviscerating the very protections that prevented the industry from steamrolling us in the first place. We can expect, in the future, that our health will continue to only become more and more compromised, manifesting in a myriad of different ways; EMS sensitivity is cumulative. It builds up in our bodies over time causing individuals to have great difficulty in warding off the simplest of flues while showing ill health in countless forms.

There is enough evidence and enough studies that should cause the general public and our American leaders to take great pause before deploying this technology in every neighborhood across America. This has literally become an unbridled unregulated industry that once fully implemented, will turn into a wireless planetary cage. It is with this technology that its proponents intend to monitor and control everything while compromising our health and the biosphere around us. I’m sorry if this sounds Orwellian, but that’s because it is.

WHAT TO DO

How is the public able to protect itself it these bills are passed silently and without public debate and feedback? Exactly who is supposed to protect us if the alphabet agencies that are designed to protect us don’t? Who is setting the safety levels? Who ultimately is guaranteeing the protection of the Public Trust? Are elected officials expected to do nothing while the proposed SB 649 and the criminal 1996 Telecommunications Act, an extensions of the WTO, attempt to strong-arm local government in its decision making? Since when do local authorities and their constituents have no say over the quality of their life, their environment, their health, and what is allowed into their cities and public right of way, even our homes? Haven’t we learned already? Have we forgotten the boldface lies that we heard from officials regarding asbestos, cigarettes, and lead, no name a few? These are the answers I have been seeking out. I have been astounded and alarmed by what I continue to uncover and feel it absolutely imperative that I share this with the public, my community, and the world. This is not going to be easy. I love this technology as much as the next guy, but is it worth our health? Our lives? This is why I have made this into a 3 Part series that will explore the impacts, its history, studies and possible alternatives of this technology from some of the greatest minds around the world. Stay tuned and feel free to sign up here and received my blogs as I post them because I’m not going down this wormhole alone.

First State in the Nation: Maryland State Advisory Council Recommends Reducing School WiFi

·Children’s environmental health experts respond to new US study linking wireless radiofrequency radiation to cancer after the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reducing radiofrequency exposures.· Teton Village, WY — (SBWIRE) — 02/27/2017 — After reviewing new and growing evidence on health risks of wireless radiation, the Maryland State Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC) issued a Report advising the Department of Education to recommend local school districts reduce classroom wireless radiation exposures by providing wired—rather than wireless—internet connections. CEHPAC’s health experts include Governor appointed pediatricians, Maryland State House/Senate appointees and representatives of the Department of Education and Department of Health. The Council cited the recent US National Toxicology Program (NTP) findings of increased rates of rare malignant cancers in animals, as well as children’s unique vulnerability to the radiation. While several countries, such as France, Israel and Cyprus, already have such protective measures in place, this action to issue recommendations to reduce classroom wireless exposures is the first by an expert state body in the United States.

The Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council recommends:

“The Maryland State Department of Education should recommend that local school systems consider using wired devices,” “WiFi can be turned off” and instead “a wired local area network (LAN) can provide a reliable and secure form of networking…without any microwave electromagnetic field exposure.”

New construction and renovations: “If a new classroom is to be built, or electrical work is to be carried out in an existing classroom, network cables can be added at the same time, providing wired (not wireless) network access with minimal extra cost and time.”

The Maryland State Department of Education should recommend that local school systems use strategies to minimize exposures: “Have children place devices on desks to serve as barrier between the device and children’s bodies; Locate laptops in the classroom in a way that keeps pupil heads as far away from the laptop screens (where the antennas are) as practicable; Consider using screens designed to reduce eyestrain; Consider using a switch to shut down the router when it is not in use”.

“The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene should provide suggestions to the public on ways to reduce exposure: Sit away from WiFi routers, especially when people are using it to access the internet. Turn off the wireless on your laptop when you are not using it. Turn off WiFi on smartphones and tablets when not surfing the web. Switch tablets to airplane mode to play games or watch videos stored on the device.”

“The General Assembly should consider funding education and research on

electromagnetic radiation and health as schools add WiFi to classrooms.”

The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene should “ask the United States Department of Health and Human Services to formally petition the FCC to revisit the exposure limit to ensure it is protective of children’s health and that it relies on current science.”

The Report should be shared with the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Communications Commission, Maryland State Department of Education and Maryland General Assembly

“While this report focused on WiFi radiation in schools, there are additional concerns about mobile phones and cell phone towers. CEHPAC plans to take a look at these broader issues over the next year,” the Report states.

Referring to the fact that US wireless public exposure limits were set in 1996, without testing for long term safety, the CEHPAC Council Report also stated that “decades-old standards need updating in light of new science.” Such statements are in line with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has also called for a regulatory review and states that children’s brains are less mature and can absorb proportionately twice the wireless radiation as an adult because of children’s thinner skulls that contain more fluid.

“If you plan to watch a movie on your device, download it first, then switch to airplane mode while you watch in order to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure,” recommends the American Academy of Pediatrics.

In response to the 2016 NTP study findings of a cancer link, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Consumer Reports, Obstetricians and several Medical Associations have issued recommendations to reduce cell phone and wireless exposures to children. The American Academy of Pediatrics has also called on the United States government to strengthen wireless exposure regulations to protect children and pregnant women.

“Our children’s healthy future rests on the responsible actions of today,” stated Theodora Scarato MSW, of Environmental Health Trust, who brought the issue to the Council in Spring of 2014. “21st century learning should include 21st century science,” Scarato points out about research showing wireless alters brain development in addition to cancer. “Corded non-wireless connections in school are an important part of a safe and healthy school environment, respecting not only our children but also the teachers and staff.”

The Council heard testimony from health organizations and from parents who reside in multiple counties in the State of Maryland, including Montgomery County, Prince Georges County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County and Howard County. The Council also received hundreds of pages of expert scientific material and comments prior to the final Report, which the Council has posted on their website.

“Parents have a right to know if there is an environmental hazard in the classroom and actions that can be taken to reduce exposure. The stakes are so high for our children, yet we are way behind what has been happening around the world. Over 20 countries have taken steps and in some cases passed legislation to protect their youngest and most vulnerable citizens and it is time we do the same for ours,” stated Montgomery County parent Laura Simon, pointing to countries like France, Cyprus and Israel.

Scarato described the process of how she brought the health issue of children’s exposures to wireless in schools to Maryland State agencies almost three years ago, by first writing letters of concern about the school radiation exposures. “I was shocked to learn no government health agency had reviewed the issue from a health and safety standpoint considering how fast WiFi was being installed in schools across the State.” Dr. Sharfstein, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Health, initially responded to Scarato’s concern, “It is fair to say there are legitimate questions about the long-term health implications of microwave radiation” and that the Department of Health “would be interested in the advice and counsel of groups such as the Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council.”

Scarato pointed out that the Education Department representative on the Council voted in favor of the CEHPAC recommendations to reduce wireless exposures.” The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) also had responded to Scarato’s initial concerns by referring her to CEHPAC which “exists for the purpose of identifying environmental hazards that may affect children’s health and recommending solutions to those hazards.”

In 2017, Maryland lawmakers will consider a bill to to create uniform screen safety guidelines for public schools “to protect children from the documented health hazards posed by daily use of digital devices.” Medical researchers are pointing to an array of psychological, emotional, and physiological psychological, emotional, and she see a logical health issues screens pose to children at the same time that schools are integrating wireless networks and one to one device initiatives into classrooms. In response to these health concerns, many schools worldwide are replacing wireless systems with wired systems, limiting time children spend on screens and developing policy to address health concerns posed by school wireless networks.

LED DANGERS ‘Global epidemic of blindness’

Turns out that LEDs have their own toxicity–Just when we felt safe escaping from CFLs! Their radiation penetrates an inch or more into your tissues, affecting your mitochondria, which produce your ATP or the energy cells need to function. We can only live for 15 seconds without ATP. 1/3 of our energy is derived from food; the other 2/3 is from light exposure of specific light spectrums–missing in LEDs.

LED Blue light also inhibits production of Melatonin, limiting your ability to sleep, leaving you open to depression and neurological problems LED Blue light also is tied to retinal damage.

SWITCH BACK TO CLEAR INCANDESCENT BULBS. The best ones are made in Brazil. Our Democrats in Wash, DC, having been “greenwashed” made normal incandescents illegal to produce in the US. Oddly enough, it was the Republicans who tried to counter that as it closed our US manufacturing for bulbs that last more than 2 months! He describes halogen lights as a healthy source. They are incandescent, 100% energy efficient and healthier for your eyes.

‘Global epidemic of blindness’ on the horizon, experts warn: Hours spent staring at screens ‘will rob millions of their sight decades early’

-High energy light from digital screens is damaging our retinas, a new study saysdamage to the retinas – the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye – is the biggest cause of central blindness

-Experts say it is now ‘clearer than ever’ that we are facing a new global epidemic

-But using a filter over screens can prevent further damage, researchers claim

By Mary Kekatos For Dailymail.com

Experts warn we face a global epidemic of blindness if we continue to spend hours you spend staring at a screen.

The high energy light emitted from digital screens is causing irreversible damage to our eyes by deteriorating the retinas.

Damage to the retinas – the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye – is the biggest cause of central blindness – particularly for the millions of children who are exposed to digital screens earlier than ever.

Lead researcher Dr Celia Sanchez-Ramos said: ‘It is paramount for adults and parents to act now and protect themselves from further damage.’

Staring at digital screens for several hours can cause irreversible damage to the retinas, potentially  leading to central blindness, a new study claims

Currently, there are approximately 900 million devices. Of those, 70 million are used by children in the US without eye protection such as a protective screen or glasses.

The study, conducted at University Complutense of Madrid in Spain, analyzed and compared the results of two previous studies.

The first exposed the retinas of rats to tablet screens emitting white LED light, one group with filters and the other group without filters.

After three months of exposure to white LED light, the rats exposed to tablets without filters experienced approximately a 23 percent increase in retinal cell death, which can lead to a loss of vision.

Adele

The ‘Hello’ hitmaker hates the way technology has taken over lives and is convinced wireless internet and devices will wipe out the world over the next quarter of decade.

She explained: “People would rather have a photo to show to people than actually enjoy a moment. It’s weird–when I first started out, nearly 10 years ago, no one had their phones out. I’d go onstage to people. Now I go onstage to 18,000 phones. It’s pretty because of the lights . . . but no one is actually looking at the world–they’re on their phones all the time. Also, this Wi-Fi, you watch, it’s going to f***ing’ kill our insides . . . it’s just floating around. I’m telling you, we’ll find out in 25 years.”

The 28-year-old singer used to be a “massive drinker” and chain-smoker but she now limits her alcohol intake and has quit the cigarettes since becoming a mother to her three-year-old son Angelo and undergoing surgery on her vocal cords.

She explained to Vanity Fair magazine: “Having a hangover with a child is torture. Just imagine an annoying three year old who knows something’s wrong; it’s hell.

“I’m too scared to ever take drugs. I used to love to be drunk, but as I got more famous I would wake up the next morning and think, ‘What the f**l did I say and who the f**k did I say it to?’ I never had blackouts, but when you’re drunk and you go to a party, you’ll talk to anyone. I can see from an outsider’s perspective that I will never write songs as good as the ones that are on ’21’, but I’m not as indulgent as I was then, and I don’t have time to fall apart like I did then.

“I was completely off my face writing that album, and a drunk tongue is an honest one. I would drink two bottles of wine, and I would chain-smoke. Then I’d write the lyrics down and the next morning think, ‘F**k, that’s quite good.’ Then I’d find the melody. But since I’ve had my baby, I’m not as carefree as I used to be. I’m scared of a lot of things now because I don’t want to die; I want to be around for my kid.

“I’m very cautious, whereas I was never cautious before. I would never have done anything before that would make me die, but now I go out of my way to avoid anything that is remotely dangerous–like walking along a sidewalk. I’d rather walk on the grass or a lawn, rather than the pavement, in case a car crashes into me.”

State kept secret guidelines on safe cell phone use

The effect of this news being carried by the media, is that Dr. David Carpenter and Dr. Mottus were invited to speak on the Thom Hartmann radio show and explained what we’ve been trying to get to the public for a decade. Thom is pretty conservative—for an exhippy liberal—so this was impressive.

If you can keep to submitting research, I suggest that you call Thom and speak on his program: (202) 808-9925. He is the most brilliant, well-informed radio host today, having written over 20 books on US History, autism, and pertinent issues. Be nice!

SACRAMENTO — For years, state health officials kept secret a set of guidelines meant to inform the public about the risks associated with cell phone use and the best practices to avoid potential harm.

On Thursday, the California Department of Public Health released the guidelines, which advise cell phone users to keep the devices away from their bodies, keep calls short and to use the speaker phone on lengthy calls. The guidelines were released only after a Sacramento Superior Court judge indicated she would order them to be disclosed, and after The Chronicle told the state it was publishing a news story about the case.

The health department’s lawyers had argued in court that the guidelines were never formally approved by the agency and that releasing them to the public would cause unnecessary panic.

Today the city of Berkeley won a major decision in a federal appeals court. The court denied a request by the CTIA-The Wireless Association to block Berkeley’s landmark cell phone “right to know” ordinance.

Berkeley’s ordinance which has been in effect since March 21 of last year requires cellphone retailers in the city to provide consumers with the following notification:

“To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radiofrequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”

Abstract

Objective To prospectively study suspected occupational risk factors for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Methods For this case–cohort analysis within the prospective Netherlands Cohort Study, 58279  men and 62573 women aged 55–69 years at enrolment in 1986 were followed up for 17.3 years  on ALS mortality. Information on occupational history and potential confounders were collected at baseline through a self-administered questionnaire and entered for a random subcohort (2092 men and 2074 women) and ALS deaths (76 men and 60 women). Occupational exposure to solvents, pesticides, metals, extremely low frequency magnetic fields (ELF-MFs) and electrical shocks was estimated by means of job exposure matrices (JEMs). Associations between ever/never occupationally exposed and cumulative exposure and ALS mortality were analysed by gender using Cox regression.

Results Occupational exposure to ELF-MF showed a possible association with ALS mortality among men: HR for ever holding a job with high exposure versus background 2.19 (95% (CI): 1.02 to 4.73) and HR for the highest tertile of cumulative exposure versus background 1.93 (95% CI 1.05 to 3.55).

Interpretation These results strengthen the evidence suggesting a positive association between ELF-MF exposure and ALS. We did not replicate earlier positive findings for other occupational exposures.

As some of you know, my work in Feldenkrais is based on practical applications of neuroscience. Here is some info to help you understand why I get so concerned about the various ill effects of EMF/EMR.

Your Brain Has A ‘Delete Button’ And Here’s How To Use It!

//www.lifecoachcode.com/2016/05/14/how-to-use-your-brain-delete-button/

There’s an old saying in neuroscience: “neurons that fire together wire together.”

This means the more you run a neuro-circuit in your brain, the stronger that circuit becomes. This is why, to quote another old saw, “practice makes perfect”. The more you practice piano, or speaking a language, or juggling, the stronger those circuits get.

Scientists have known this for years. However, nowadays researchers learn another part of the truth: In order to learn something, even more important than practicing is the ability to unlearn, or to break down the old neural connections. This is called “synaptic pruning”.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:

Imagine your brain is a garden, except instead of growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables, you grow synaptic connections between neurons. These are the connections that neurotransmitters like dopamine, seratonin, and others travel across. “Glial cells” are the gardeners of your brain—they act to speed up signals between certain neurons.

But other glial cells are the waste removers, pulling up weeds, killing pests, raking up dead leaves. Your brain’s pruning gardeners are called “microglial cells.” They prune your synaptic connections. The question is, how do they know which ones to prune?

Researchers are just starting to unravel this mystery, but what they do know is the synaptic connections that get used less get marked by a protein, C1q (as well as others). When the microglial cells detect that mark, they bond to the protein and destroy—or prune—the synapse. This is how your brain  makes the physical space for you to build new and stronger connections so you can learn more.

This is why sleep matters:

Have you ever felt like your brain is full, usually when you learn something new, or start a new job or a hobby? Well, it may just be.

When you learn lots of new things, your brain builds connections, but they’re inefficient, ad hoc connections. Your brain needs to prune a lot of those connections away and build more streamlined, efficient pathways. It does that when we sleep.

When you sleep your brain cells shrink by up to 60% to create space for your glial gardeners to come in and take away the waste. That’s how they prune the synapses.

Have you ever woken up from a good night’s rest and been able to think clearly and quickly? That’s why. It’s like running fragmentation on your computer.

This is the same reason naps are so beneficial to your cognitive abilities. A 10 or 20 minute nap gives your microglial gardeners the chance to come in, clear away some unused connections, and leave space to grow new ones.

Thinking with a sleep-deprived brain is like hacking your way through a dense jungle with a machete.

It’s overgrown, slow-going, exhausting.

YOUR BRAIN CLEANS ITSELF OUT WHEN YOU SLEEP!

This is how you can control what gets deleted from your brain:

It’s the synaptic connections you don’t use that get marked for recycling. The ones you do use are the ones that get watered and oxygenated. So be mindful of what you’re thinking about.

WHAT YOU FOCUS ON PREVAILS! YOU LITERALLY CRAFT YOUR OWN MIND BY CHOOSING WHAT YOU PAY ATTENTION TOWARDS.

THIS IS MAJOR NEWS ON EARLY ONSET DEMENTIA & LYME DISEASE

Dr. Zubcevic said the recent revelation that actor, singer, and songwriter Kris Kristofferson was cured of dementia once he was properly diagnosed with Lyme disease should be a lesson for medical professionals on how pervasive the disease is, and how often it is overlooked.

“Sudden-onset dementia should really be a red flag for Lyme [disease], especially in people with compromised immune systems,” she said.

While this is not as researched as most of the information posted on this page, it logically fits with many symptoms and situations. Aside from the plethora of usual toxins, we now also live amidst “electrosmog” via EMF/EMR which is known to cause the inflammatory process and depression.

New research discovers that depression is an allergic reaction to Inflammation

New research is revealing that many cases of depression are caused by an allergic reaction to inflammation. Tim de Chant of NOVA writes: “Inflammation is our immune system’s natural response to injuries, infections, or foreign compounds. When triggered, the body pumps various cells and proteins to the site through the blood stream, including cytokines, a class of proteins that facilitate intercellular communication.It also happens that people suffering from depression are loaded with cytokines.” Inflammation is caused by obesity, high sugar diets, high quantities of trans fats, unhealthy diets in general, and other causes.

I got an email from Larry Lessig this morning and the subject line read “WE WON!”. I am ecstatic. We all deserve the right to know. Major Legal Victory for Berkeley’s Cellphone “Right to Know” Ordinance

Today the city of Berkeley won a major decision in a federal appeals court. The court denied a request by the CTIA-The Wireless Association to block Berkeley’s landmark cell phone “right to know” ordinance.

Berkeley’s ordinance which has been in effect since March 21 of last year requires cellphone retailers in the city to provide consumers with the following notification:

“To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radiofrequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”
