Ladies and Gentlemen,
The item below indicating that the E.U. is requiring member states to “provide smart meters by 2020” should be ringing alarm bells. As so much of the regulation coming from Brussels sidesteps the democratic process it should come as no surprise that “the fix is in” at the level above the E.U. Parliament.
There is, however, the proviso that “as long as there is a positive economic case to do so”. Ireland and California as in other locations around the world have an oversupply of electricity. This excess of supply is unrelated to the creation of wind farms (also E.U. aid-assisted). As with other encroachments into personal privacy and public health no one in office (with one exception) is asking questions.
The situation flies in the face of democracy and the democratic profess and is indicative of a corporate / fascist agenda that no one will touch.
The headline that “92 associations” are supporting the E.U. Commission’s industrial strategy is little more than rubber stamp propaganda to give credence to the Commission’s undemocratic process. Who could argue with the need for development and prosperity? It is the unwritten whisper that is hidden behind the propaganda that matters.
Simultaneously, even news of a small victory regarding Smart Meter fees in Arizona (See below) has been taken down although the headline turns up in a search engine. Is this evidence of information being blocked?
In the face of promotion, propaganda and cersorship by Google, Dr. Joel Moskowitz is circulating a new review paper by Carlberg and Hardell revealing that cordless phones and cell phones cause cancer.
At issue is the on-going proliferation of electromagnetic / microwave radiation while science repeatedly says it is dangerous.
From the Ionosphere and the giant gun barrel of the Project Harp space gun in Barbados to Samsung televisions and refrigerators that emit radiation into our homes that can not be stopped, mankind and Nature is facing an infertile future at best.
As people begin to move house to protect their lives, this raises the question of who would be able to live – or want to live – in the so called ‘Smart Cities’ that are being deployed.
Researcher: 90% of ‘Smart’ TVs can be compromised remotely
From the internet-of-very-broken-things dept
So we’ve noted for some time how “smart” TVs, like most internet of things devices, have exposed countless users’ privacy courtesy of some decidedly stupid privacy and security practices. Several times now smart TV manufacturers have been caught storing and transmitting personal user data unencrypted over the internet (including in some instances living room conversations). And in some instances, consumers are forced to eliminate useful features unless they agree to have their viewing and other data collected, stored and monetized via these incredible “advancements” in television technology.
As recent Wikileaks data revealed, the lack of security and privacy standards in this space has proven to be a field day for hackers and intelligence agencies alike.
And new data suggests that these televisions are even more susceptible to attack than previously thought. While the recent Samsung Smart TV vulnerabilities exposed by Wikileaks (aka Weeping Angel) required an in-person delivery of a malicious payload via USB drive, more distant, remote attacks are unsurprisingly also a problem. Rafael Scheel, a security researcher working for Swiss cyber security consulting company Oneconsult, recently revealed that around 90% of smart televisions are vulnerable to a remote attack using rogue DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting – Terrestrial) signals.
Will smart meters be worth the money?
Millions of energy users in Britain are about to get a new metering system – smart meters – technology which has been rejected by Germany and found not to be cost-effective by other nations.
Smart meters send information on energy usage directly back to the energy supplier, which eliminates the need for meter readings.
Crucially, they also let the customer know just how much electricity or gas they are consuming during the day. This revelation is expected to change our behaviour, so that we switch off lights, turn down heating, and generally use less energy.
The EU has said that all its members must provide smart meters by 2020 as long as there is a positive economic case to do so.
Ontario Teachers’ and OMERS back British smart energy companies
The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System’s infrastructure investment manager Borealis Infrastructure and Britain-based energy company SSE are backing the launch of two new companies in the British energy market.
MapleCo, an independent meter asset provider, will contribute to Britain’s smart meter rollout program, which is aiming to fund the purchase and installation of smart gas and electricity meters. SGN Smart, a subsidiary of British gas distribution network company SGN Ltd., will provide management services and resources to MapleCo for implementation and its ongoing operation.
Soon, your car may be able to read your expressions
When you shop for cat food online, Amazon knows who you are. When you look for the best airfares for summer vacation, Google knows who you are. Soon, when you get behind the wheel, your car may recognize you, too.
Using cameras with facial recognition software and other biometric indicators, automakers are looking to personalize the driving experience with cars that stare back at you, quietly adjusting seats and driving modes. They may even anticipate your wants and desires by playing your favorite music based on your mood. And it’s not only about convenience, but also about the possibility of improving safety and security.
“It’s not just about personalization,” said Zachary Bolton, a systems and technology engineer at Continental Automotive Group, explaining the sophistication of such systems. “We can use the gleam, the twinkle in your eye to determine precisely where you’re looking.”
Arizona citizens fighting utility over illegal fees for refusing so-called Smart Meters
I strongly encourage anyone and everyone who does not want an extortion fee for refusing a “smart” meter to go and say so.
Those of you who have spoken at the ACC previously need to know that, with the exception of commissioner Burns, this is an all-new commission since the last “smart” meter related ACC meeting in December of 2014. So the newbie commissioners need to hear from you.
Smart meter firm EDMI asked UK for £7m to change a single component
18 months to change a chip? Better believe it
Exclusive EDMI, the UK maker of residential smart meter comms hubs, is seeking approval for a major modification to its kit – a process it had expected to take 18 months and cost £7m, leaked internal documents show.
The revelation has emerged as the meter industry continues to drip-feed marketing studies into the press to persuade consumers that smart meters result in lower costs for all concerned.
The alteration to EDMI’s comms hub will allow the home device to operate in the 868MHz band as well as the 2.4GHz band originally specified. This is typically achieved by swapping one single-band module inside the unit for a dual-band module.
The redesign was triggered in 2014, according to a source familiar with the matter, after Data and Communications Company (DCC), the Capita subsidiary managing the UK-wide smart meter project on behalf of government, found a dedicated Zigbee wireless home area network (HAN) using 2.4GHz alone would not allow smart meters to work properly in every UK home.
Why 2017 is the year of the Smart Meter
28th January is Chinese New Year with 2017 being the year of the Rooster – the Fire Rooster to be precise. But for those of us not in tune with the Chinese Zodiac, 2017 really is going to be the “Year of the Smart Meter”.
Smart Meters are already very familiar to us, and to our colleagues across the energy industry. In fact, in order to help energy suppliers meet the Government mandate that every household in the UK will have a Smart Meter by 2020, we have been working across the country to support almost every aspect of the Smart Meter roll-out for many years. However, for the vast majority of UK citizens there has been very little buzz about Smart Meters… until now.
In 2017, a number of critical factors will come together to create the perfect environment for customer engagement with Smart Meters. These factors fall into two categories: technical and cultural.
• technical: The technical underpinnings of the Smart ecosystem are starting to come together. In November 2016, the first DCC release went live and users are now busy testing their systems and devices against it, ready to start mass roll-out later in the year. In the spring, the DCC will release its second major set of functionality, for pre-payment, which will transform the way millions of people buy, consume and monitor their energy
• cultural: In addition to this, and perhaps more importantly, the idea of the Smart Meter is exploding into popular culture. From the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra releasing “A Requiem for Meters” – a three minute requiem performed on instruments made from old gas and electricity meters – in November 2015, to the Energise Choir’s single “Changes” released just two weeks ago, there has been a consistent stream of cultural references to the Meter revolution over the past few years. We have seen conversations on EastEnders, Peter Blake’s quirky Smart-Meter-inspired art exhibition in Leeds, and even Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy’s poem “Meters” which marks the passing of traditional gas and electricity meters, the coming of Smart Meters and the end of the estimated bill.
92 associations sign a Joint Declaration for an ambitious EU industrial strategy
Europe is the cradle of the manufacturing industry and has been at the forefront of industrial revolutions and technological innovations. The industry directly employs over 34 million people across all Member States, in supply chains comprising hundreds of thousands of SMEs and larger suppliers. It also indirectly accounts for millions of additional jobs in related sectors.
Project HARP Space Gun
A giant gun barrel in Barbados that once hoped to shoot outer space with science.
Not to be confused with the conspiracy factory known as Project HAARP (High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program), Project HARP (High Altitude Research Project) was a joint initiative between the United States and Canada to research the use of ballistics to deliver objects into the upper atmosphere and beyond.
In lay terms, the HARP project was established to create a cartoonishly large gun to shoot things into space. Designed by mad ballistics engineer Gerald Bull, the gun itself was originally built from a 65-foot long, 16″ naval cannon, the kind that might be seen on a battleship. The cannon was later joined to another barrel, extending the length of the gun to 130 feet and making it too big for effective military application, but (seemingly) perfect for satellite delivery. The titanic gun was not designed for delivering human subjects, but instead, the cannon fired smaller projectiles in a sabot that would protect the payload during the firing and would fall away as the satellite rose. At its apex, the gun was able to fire an object a staggering 112 miles into the sky, setting the 1963 world record for gun-launched altitude at 93 KM.

The State vs The Deep State – government officials questioning the Smart Grid
I’m just in the middle of a move, but wanted to make sure you saw this excellent new video from Brian Thiesen:
The State vs The Deep State – Government Officials Questioning The Smart Grid
In this video, you will connect the following dots:
▪ Gary Glenn (Michigan Rep. & Chair of House Energy Committee) on how his own ‘smart’ meter failed just a few days ago!
▪ Cynthia Ayers (National EMP Task Force, Deputy Director) on how ‘smart’ meters create unprecedented vulnerability for the entire power grid, putting civilization at risk;
▪ Glenn again on how the people that don’t have ‘smart’ meters are subsidizing a minimum of $84/year to pay for those who do;
▪ Bennett Gaines (FirstEnergy VP) confirming that ‘smart’ meters have a life of 5-7 years, where as analogs have a life of 20-30 years;
▪ Commentary on Onzo’s admission of monetizing surveillance data from ‘smart’ meters;
▪ ….and other developments.
Exciting to see the curtain pull back! As you and others are spreading truth (thank you for this!!), we are moving toward the tipping out. Watch:
BIG BRO-BOT U.S. Navy funds development of robot surveillance system which can spy on humans in incredible detail
Research chiefs want to harness the power of machines to build a snooping network that’s a ‘single entity with many eyes’
THE U.S. Navy is funding the development of a new super-surveillance system which uses robots to snoop on humans in terrifying detail.
It has handed a $1.7 million (£1.4 million) grant to researchers from Cornell University, who are working to build a system which can “conduct surveillance as a single entity with many eyes”.
The cash was handed over by the U.S. Office of Naval Research, which is dedicated to developing new forms of military and civilian technology.
Last year, we exclusively revealed that the same department discussed plans to fit humans with microchips and track their every move.
‘New golden age’ of (digital) radio heralds review that could end FM
A surge in digital listeners has brought about a “new golden age”of radio which could trigger the beginning of the end of FM listening as early as this year.
Radio use in the UK is now at record levels, with 48 million adults listening to more than 1bn hours each week in the last three months of 2016 year, according to industry monitor Rajar.
The renaissance has been fuelled by an increase in people accessing radio digitally, through devices such as tablets and smartphones, with the balance shifting so quickly that analysts predict digital listeners will become the majority within a year.

Radiation a real threat to children, says Johns Hopkins researcher who looked at the impact of Wi-Fi exposure
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – There’s a push in Maryland to set up safety guidelines relating to WiFi in schools and for daily use of computers, tablets and other technology.
Here’s the question: Do the devices pose a health risk?
Lawmakers are set to consider bills (HB 866, SB 1089) that would require the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to establish guidelines on how much these devices are used in classrooms.
Separately, the Maryland State Advisory Council has put out a report calling for a reduction in the use of WiFi in schools.
Megan Latshaw, a researcher at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School, led the work group looking at the impact of WiFi exposure. She says radiation is a real threat to children, and urges caution, noting decades ago asbestos was considered a great flame retardant.
New review paper finds that cellphone and cordless phone use causes brain cancer
Electromagnetic Radiation Safety, April 13, 2017
A newly published review paper by Michael Carlberg and Lennart Hardell evaluates the strength of the scientific evidence to determine whether there is a causal relationship between a risk factor and an associated disease — namely, wireless (cellphone and cordless) phone use and glioma, the most common brain cancer. The paper applies the nine perspectives developed by Sir Austin Bradford Hill to the peer-reviewed data pertaining to this health risk.
The paper alleges that official bodies that have reviewed the evidence on mobile phone use and health risks have been dominated by individuals with conflicts of interest. Moreover, these experts have relied upon data from methodologically unsound studies, including the Danish Cohort Study and a UK cohort study, to dismiss the evidence from case-control studies.
Drawing upon several lines of research, the authors present a compelling argument for their conclusion that glioma is caused by radio frequency (RF) radiation. The paper recommends that the current guidelines for RF exposure must be revised to protect the population from exposure to low-intensity, non-thermal levels of radio frequency radiation.
Carlberg M, Hardell L. Evaluation of Mobile Phone and Cordless Phone Use and Glioma Risk Using the Bradford Hill Viewpoints from 1965 on Association or Causation. Biomed Research International. Epub 2017 Mar 16.
“The nine Bradford Hill viewpoints on association or causation regarding RF radiation and glioma risk seem to be fulfilled in this review.
Based on that we conclude that glioma is caused by RF radiation. Revision of current guidelines for exposure to RF radiation is needed.”

Have you ever been using your cell phone and felt/heard a weird sort of buzzing/whining sound? I have and it freaked me out. I felt a high pitched stinging feeling into my ear.
Having this first-hand experience has caused me to really take a closer look at what impact cell phones could have on our oral and brain health.
I know, none of us wants to hear more about how cell phones could be causing trouble to our health. But, thankfully, you are one of us who really desires to look at the truth rather than stick your head in the sand and pretend the problem doesn’t exist.
The good news is toward the end of this article, we will place a new video tutorial from us that will show you a technique to help support clearing the head of any scrambling from cell phones.
The risk of cell phones
Setting aside the obvious risk of using a cell phone while driving (as a side note, did you realize that cell phone use is now the #1 cause of traffic accidents?), the issue we want to bring to light is the fact that all cell phones emit an electromagnetic frequency. It’s a sort of low-level radiation.
Most of the PR you’ll hear on cell phones talk about the risks to brain health. Without diminishing this risk, we want to bring to the discussion the fact that a major component to the primary system our bodies use to protect our teeth from decay is under even heavier attack from cell phone radiation. I think of cell phone radiation like a low-level radar device that’s definitely strong enough to scramble intercellular communication depending on how close to the phone the tissues are. More on cell phones soon…
The body’s main pathway to protect from decay
We have a system in the body which naturally cleans bad bugs out of the tiny tubes in each of our teeth. This system is actually the primary means our bodies have to maintain a cavity free mouth. It’s called ‘Dentinal Fluid Transport’ and it was first researched by Dr. Ralph Steinman.
We’ve written extensively about dentinal fluid flow previously, in our article titled Why teeth decay (and how to stop it) as well as in our free video tutorial course titled ‘the 5 steps to a healthy mouth’. So, if you’d like to dive more deeply into the mechanism and specifically the role of diet in this system, check out those free resources.
How Dentinal Fluid Transport Works
Dr. Steinman discovered that this system the body has to flush bad bugs from within the teeth is controlled by the hypothalamus, a part of our brain that sits right between our ears. Further, Steinman uncovered that the hypothalamus stimulates the parotid glands to secrete their impact to cause the dentinal fluid system to flow the health giving way.
However, the bad news is this system can go haywire and in fact reverse which causes the flow of dentinal fluid to suck like a straw from the mouth into the inner portions of our teeth (talk about a free ride for bad bugs INTO our teeth! ).
It turns out that the parotid gland, as well as the main duct from the parotid gland, that delivers its secretions to support healthy dentinal fluid transport is located right under our cell phone.
So, while there may be risks to brain health (including the hypothalamus) from cell phones, given that distance plays a big role in how much risk exists for a certain body tissue, we think the parotid gland is definitely taking a beating and is not getting its fair attention on the issue.
Solutions to support healthy parotid glands
Like we mentioned above, distance is crucial. The further away we can get from the cell phone the better. Here are a few ideas to help.
1. Use the speakerphone
Yeah, it may be inconvenient at times, but I’d much rather take the extra step and have the phone several inches from my head than literally laying right on top of the system that allows me to live a cavity free life.
2. Look into electromagnetic frequency redirectors
We have a Pong on our cell phone. Maybe it helps, maybe it doesn’t. I don’t really know. So, I tend to have it there (the placebo effect of having it there gives me a bit more comfort at least) and still use the speakerphone function.
3. Use a headset
Call us old school, but we are not fans of bluetooth technology that allows a person to keep those very convenient devices in their ears. Bluetooth technology emits radiation too and I don’t need more radiation into my brain by inserting a transmitter into my ear. If it works for you, great. I’ll stick with my wired headset or the speakerphone.
The ancient solution to a modern problem…
Like many of you know, our background is in the Chinese longevity arts (think tai chi). In fact, Susan and I met while studying these arts back in 1985 (oops, that dates us a bit I think).
Here’s a quick video tutorial that will show you 2 simple techniques to wake up your hypothalamus and stimulate your parotid glands. They are simple and free and may even help you feel better and look younger.
If you like this sort of information, please let us know in the comments below this video. We have a lot more ancient wisdom and strategies to share, but since this is our first time talking on this level with you all, we’d like to hear if you want us to make any more video tutorials like this.
What do you do to mitigate the risks of cell phones?

This is how your iPad could be hurting your baby’s brain
Babies’ sleep and subsequent brain development may be being harmed by the use of iPads and other touch-screen devices, research suggests.
A study found that every hour infants spent on such devices was linked to 16 minutes’ less sleep.
The research on more than 700 families is the first to look at the link between touch-screen devices and sleep in babies and toddlers.
It found that some toddlers aged 12 to 18 months were spending as much as five hours a day on touch-screen devices. Even babies less than a year old were found to be spending as much as two-and-a-half hours on such gadgets.

The Rise of the Smart City
Officials are tapping all kinds of data to make their cities safer, healthier and more efficient, in what may be just the start of a sweeping change in how cities are run
Cities have a way to go before they can be considered geniuses. But they’re getting smart pretty fast.
In just the past few years, mayors and other officials in cities across the country have begun to draw on the reams of data at their disposal-about income, burglaries, traffic, fires, illnesses, parking citations and more-to tackle many of the problems of urban life. Whether it’s making it easier for residents to find parking places, or guiding health inspectors to high-risk restaurants or giving smoke alarms to the households that are most likely to suffer fatal fires, big-data technologies are beginning to transform the way cities work.
Cities have just scratched the surface in using data to improve operations, but big changes are already under way in leading smart cities, says Stephen Goldsmith, a professor of government and director of the Innovations in Government Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. “In terms of city governance, we are at one of the most consequential periods in the last century,” he says.

5G and IoT: Total technological control grid being rolled out fast
Is 5G technology the basis for the Internet of Things, a complete and inescapable technological control grid designed to manipulate not just human activity but the human energy field?
For those who don’t know, 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is the latest wireless communication system that telecommunications companies are currently implementing. It is designed to allow faster downloads of more data, using the 28, 37 and 39 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum.
5G is being rolled out fast, right now, with Verizon testing it out in 11 U.S. cities and ATT also conducting experiments. Many people are encouraging the advancement of 5G based on their desire at all costs for convenience and speed (“give me my multiple gigabit downloads now!”) and yet, they are foolishly valuing speed over their privacy, their safety and their health.
5G is not merely an upgrade of wireless infrastructure; it is a giant leap towards the erection and installation of a total technological control grid. The agenda of this rollout is to cover the entire Earth – including rural areas – with a 5G electromagnetic blanket, so that its effects can literally not be escaped by anyone living on this planet. Designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT, the intent behind emerging 5G technology is to hook every single material thing on the planet, as well as humans themselves, onto a vast planet-wide web where everything and everyone become nodes on the network – connected by microchips which are nano-size and can be inhaled (like ‘smart’ dust).
