The front page story from the Irish Daily Mail is of relevance, not only because parent are now concerned about the impact of Smartphones. Unfortunately, their concerns are more focussed on the social impact rather than the health of their children.
Noteworthy too is the absence of a video outlining the connection between radio frequencies and Chemtrails.
More conflicting information is contained in reports of security flaws in “virtually all” modern devices. In light of the controversy over hackers being able to access all computer / communications devices, the question must be asked if it is indeed a “flaw” or if the vulnerability of chips and chipsets was intentionally designed into chip architecture. The intrusion into daily life by modern electromagnetic devices is certainly made easier by the so-called flaws. It is relevant that Google is publicising these flaws. Perhaps Google dislikes being vulnerable to hacking as it plans a property development in Toronto and has been caught repeately censoring the Internet.
The reappearance of Deborah Tavares is most welcome. The video below explains her absence and yet more reasons for the public to demand action by governments to control a technology that assumes more and more control over the individual.
The audacity of the Chinese to propose rating citizens is Orwellian by any standards. Make no mistake, the same process is in development in the West with citizens paying for the privilege to private enterprise.
News that the electricity supplier, WiTricity, intends to deliver power wirelessly should be cause for concern for everyone.

A Google-affiliated team of security analysts have announced that virtually all modern computers are vulnerable to hacking due to a set of security flaws in chips from three of the largest software makers.
Chips from Intel, Arm Holdings and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) all contained the flaw, according to a new report from Alphabet, Inc.’s Google Project Zero, whose stated goal is to determine security faults in new software on zero day – that being the day that hackers discover the flaw in any given software.
How ‘wi-fi’ connects human brains and explains why people have ‘gut feelings’
Humans brains are interconnected through type of ‘wi-fi’ which allows us to pick up far more information about other people than we are aware of, a leading professor claims.
Prof Digby Tantum, Clinical Professor of Psychotherapy, at theUniversity of Sheffield, believes that language plays only a part in how humans communicate and that actually the brain is working hard to pick up tiny micro-signals that communicate what a person is thinking.
City of the future? Humans, not technology, are the challenge in Toronto
TORONTO – For a city striving to become a major technology center, it was a prize catch: A Google corporate sibling would spend the coming year planning a futuristic metropolis in a derelict part of Toronto’s waterfront.
When announcing this fall that the company, Sidewalk Labs, would create a city of tomorrow, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada promised the project would create “technologies that will help us build smarter, greener, more inclusive” communities. Even the nasty weather off Lake Ontario would be tamed, the developer pledged.
But tempering the excitement of some Toronto residents are concerns that are perhaps inevitable when it comes to a company renowned for collecting and analyzing data.
Quayside, as the project is known, will be laden with sensors and cameras tracking everyone who lives, works or merely passes through the area. In what Sidewalk calls a marriage of technology and urbanism, the resulting mass of data will be used to further shape and refine the new city. Lifting a term from its online sibling, the company calls the Toronto project “a platform.”
Big data meets Big Brother as China moves to rate its citizens
The Chinese government plans to launch its Social Credit System in 2020. The aim? To judge the trustworthiness – or otherwise – of its 1.3 billion residents
In June 14, 2014, the State Council of China published an ominous-sounding document called “Planning Outline for the Construction of a Social Credit System”. In the way of Chinese policy documents, it was a lengthy and rather dry affair, but it contained a radical idea. What if there was a national trust score that rated the kind of citizen you were?
2018 tech predictions: Bitcoin bubble, 5G and robot overlords
Ericsson recently predicted that 5G will serve 15pc of the world’s population by 2022. There are at least 25 mobile operators testing what they define as 5G, with speeds in some cases reaching 36Gbps. In Ireland, an auction for the country’s first ‘5G licences’ netted €78m from five operators.
Crucially, 5G is the generation of mobile that will make all kinds of things possible, from autonomous vehicles to smart cities.
The CyberKnife System, a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous tumours anywhere in the body, has been introduced to Ireland for the first time at the Hermitage Medical Clinic. The CyberKnife treatment works by sending multiple beams of high dose radiation from a wide variety of angles using a robotic arm. X-ray cameras monitor the patient’s breathing and re-position the radiotherapy beam in order to minimise damage to healthy tissue. This accuracy enables tumours to be treated that are in difficult or dangerous to treat positions such as near the spinal cord, prostate, lung, brain, liver, pancreas and kidney.

Adrian Weckler: How to protect yourself as two ‘bugs’ looks set to affect almost every computer, with phones also at risk
What is going on? Two very serious computer problems have been identified that, between them, affect almost all the world’s computers. That almost certainly means whatever laptop or PC you have at home or in work.
What are these problems?
One has been dubbed ‘Meltdown’ and the other one is ‘Spectre’. They basically make it possible for attackers to take over a computer without the owner knowing, bypassing precautions such as anti-virus software.
What’s the difference between ‘Meltdown’ and ‘Spectre’?
‘Meltdown’ affects computers with Intel chips. That amounts to most PCs, laptops and work machines in Ireland. ‘Spectre’ affects computers that use other chips, such as AMD or ARM. This segment may include phones and tablets, too.
‘Meltdown’: Google team flags Intel bug that may affect billions of devices
Information stored on every desktop computer, smartphone and cloud server since 1995 could be accessed by hackers if two hardware bugs are exploited, a new report has warned.
On Wednesday, security researchers at Google Project Zero disclosed technical details on two security flaws that allow hackers to engage in unauthorized reads of a computer’s memory data, which may contain sensitive information such as passwords.
The researchers discovered that the vulnerabilities affect many CPUs, including those from Intel, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and ARM Holdings, as well as the devices and operating systems running on it.
This week in IoT, Volkswagen and Hyundai share a similar vision for autonomous cars, and India’s dream for smart cities appears to be crumbling
The internet of things (IoT) space has been left reeling by the exposure of massive vulnerabilities – Meltdown and Spectre – in chip hardware, affecting nearly every device.
Given that 90pc of all PCs contain an Intel chip, the company denied that these vulnerabilities, which allow a rogue program to access internet servers and other secrets of programs, represent bugs or flaws in its chips.
Apple has admitted that its devices are vulnerable and has released mitigations for macOS and iOS as well as Safari on the App Store.
Hyundai and Volkswagen team up with start-up
It seems that when it comes to getting autonomous cars on the road, manufacturers are realising that cooperation is key to their success, with news of yet another partnership being announced.
This time, according to The Verge, it is Hyundai and Volkswagen who have decided to work with a third partner, Aurora, which was founded in 2016 by Google’s former ‘self-driving car guru’, Chris Urmson.
DARPA is building a flying aircraft carrier
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency – more commonly known as DARPA – is moving ahead with a project to create a flying aircraft carrier. According to the Navy Times, the so-called “Gremlins” program involves building a transport and bomber-style aircraft capable of launching swarms of fighter drones mid-flight.
The Gremlins are coming! US military to test ‘flying aircraft carriers’ that can launch swarms of tiny killer drones in 2019
• Each drone could be reused up to 20 times
• Drones would ‘swarm’ together to carry out missions on the front line
• Launched in mid-air from larger aircraft and then retrieved in same way

5 sounds science can’t explain
A lot of unexplained sounds – some one-offs, some repeating – have been reported around the world.
Some have remained mysteries for years before finally being solved, such as the ‘Bloop’, an extremely powerful, ultra-low-frequency sound so loud that not even a blue whale could belt it out. A frenzy of speculation followed its 1997 discovery by deep sea microphones. Was there some even larger animal lurking in the unexplored deep, bigger than anything we’ve ever known? No, it turns out: 15 years later, scientists declared that the Bloop was caused by an enormous ice shelf cracking apart in the Antarctic.
The Bloop is not the only sound to stir up excitement with thoughts of the unknown; many sounds still have scientists scratching their heads. Let’s take a look at five.

Geoengineering: Waging weather warfare on world populations
Humanity’s attempt to manipulate Earth’s climate and life support systems is the absolute epitome of unbridled hubris. The ongoing global geoengineering assault has placed our planet under a state of siege. The thriving world we have formerly known is no more, we are accelerating at blinding speed toward a completely new and unimaginably challenging reality. What can we do to expose and halt the weather warfare assault? The ongoing criminal climate engineering operations are exposed in the PowerPoint presentation below. It was given at the Northern California event titled “Climate Engineering, Government Criminality, And Vaccine Dangers“.
US scientists launch world’s biggest solar geoengineering study
Research programme will send aerosol injections into the earth’s upper atmosphere to study the risks and benefits of a future solar tech-fix for climate change
US scientists are set to send aerosol injections 20km up into the earth’s stratosphere in the world’s biggest solar geoengineering programme to date, to study the potential of a future tech-fix for global warming.
The $20m (£16m) Harvard University project will launch within weeks and aims to establish whether the technology can safely simulate the atmospheric cooling effects of a volcanic eruption, if a last ditch bid to halt climate change is one day needed.
Scientists hope to complete two small-scale dispersals of first water and then calcium carbonate particles by 2022. Future tests could involve seeding the sky with aluminium oxide – or even diamonds.

An electronic toy-maker has agreed to pay $650,000 to settle charges from theFederal Trade Commissionthat it collected personal information on hundreds of thousands of children without their parents knowing.
VTech Electronics, whose North American operations are based in Arlington Heights, says it did notify parents and the allegations are based on technical provisions of a children’s privacy law.
The company also allegedly failed to protect the data it collected, allowing a hacker to gain access in late 2015, according to the complaint.
DHS announces program to illegally scan our faces
While biometrics only at certain major airports right now, full implementation of these scanners could cost Americans up to $1 billion, says study
Both Congress and the Department of Homeland Security have never justified the biometric scanners at airports that could cost Americans $1 billion in 2018.
As TSA agents continue to prove their incompetence in the “War on Terror,” the Department of Homeland Security is now allocating $1 billion in taxpayer funding to create a facial recognition program that will illegally scan Americans’ faces.
From Zero Hedge
Both Congress and the Department of Homeland Security have never justified the biometric scanners at airports that could cost Americans $1 billion in 2018.
In addition to the fact that Congress has never provided a reason why the system is needed in the U.S., the study claimed that DHS has “repeatedly questioned ‘the additional value biometric air exit would provide’ compared with the status quo and the ‘overall value and cost of a biometric air exit capability,’ even as it has worked to build it.

John Moore’s EMP Warning for America
Is an EMP in America’s future? A growing number of prominent Americans say it is is. Below is a warning from John Moore.
My old colleague and friend, ex-Green Beret and homicide investigator, John Moore, sent the following warning to Steve Quayle, Paul Martin and myself.
Paul, Dave, Steve,
My alert I’ve just written. Use as you see fit.
J.R.’s Alert November 27, 2017
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I’ve been discussing the clear and present danger of an EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) attack on the USA for a number of years.
I’ve read authoritative books by experts like Dr. Peter Pry (the former hear of the now defunct U.S. Commission on EMP). I’ve interviewed Dr. Pry on my radio show.
Until recently, I felt that the failure of the Federal Government to protect the national power grid was just another example of an inadvertent result of our very dysfunctional swamp in Washington D.C.
However, upon further reflection, I have concluded that the failure to protect the national power grid is by design and with intent. I have recently learned that officials in the Obama administration were actively blocking any possibility of the recommendations of the EMP Commission becoming successful. The report (208 pages, released 2008) is a free download at my web site: www.thelibertyman.com.
As most of you know, I’ve been a homicide detective most of my adult life and an Intelligence Analyst before that. By both education and profession, I’m trained to find evidence, analyze it and make conclusions based on that evidence. Based on the evidence I’ve found, I can come to no other conclusion other than the complete failure to protect the national power grid is by design and with intent. The goal being to prepare the USA for a successful invasion by our enemies i.e. the Russians, Chinese and their allies.
With all of the above in mind, there are a couple of unknowns (at least to me they are unknown):
1.) Does President Trump plan to move forward to protect the national power grid?
2.) If so, will he be able to do so in time?
Absent having answers to the two above questions, I advocate the following:
1.) Prepare for both a grid-down scenario and invasion.
2.) Pray for God’s healing and protection.
I know all to well the enormity of what I advocate. I also know that failure to do so could result in serious injury, or death. My recommendation of becoming part of a hobby farm that’s self-sufficient 100 miles (or more) from a major city and 800+ feet above sea level holds true.
May God Bless and Save America!

However, thinking more carefully, this is a very wise opinion that applies not only to the military but that applies perfectly to the science and the scientific knowledge.
Oklahoma residents outraged that DHS is spraying town with chemicals – using them as human guinea pigs
Newkirk, Oklahoma – A planned chemical/biological test by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has residents of a small Oklahoma town in fear that they are being used as human guinea pigs, as the federal government prepares to carry out plans for biological testing in the area next month.
DHS announced plans to conduct chemical and biological testing near the border between Kansas and Oklahoma in January and February, and again in June and July, to determine how much protection people would receive from being inside a house or an apartment in the event of a biological terrorist attack, according to a statement on the Homeland Security website.

Nissan will show how the technology works at the upcoming CES 2018 trade show in Las Vegas.
A blessed smartphone?
A blessed smartphone or tablet? Yes. Parishioners at St. Matthew’s Church in Marsala (Sicily) were asked by Fr. Alessandro Palermo, a 30-year-old parish priest, to bring their smartphones and tablets to church for a special benediction this year before Christmas on the feast of St. Lucy: “With the advent of the Internet, social media and the technological revolution, mobile phones have become very important, we keep them always with us.”
Indeed, as we well know, the eyes of young and old, from elementary school students to grandparents, are glued to these devices. In Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell predicted this ominous development. Big Brother says: “The people will not revolt. They will not look up from their screens long enough to notice what’s happening.” Cardinal Robert Sarah calls such distraction “the dictatorship of noise” – overuse and abuse of technology, especially smartphones, and the inability of people to discern good from evil, hurtful from beneficial.
According to a Pew Research Center survey, 95 percent of Americans now own a mobile phone of some kind. The share of Americans that own smartphones is 77 percent, up from just 35 percent in 2011. Moreover, technology and mobile phones are constantly adding functions, which has the potential to increase overuse – and abuse.

Reduce EMF Exposure
The negative effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) continue to ignite conversations and controversy worldwide. The most dangerous pollution affecting you is the invisible sea of EMFs your body swims in daily. You are exposed to EMFs all day long, not only in public but inside your home, too. Most of the radiation emits from cellphones, cell towers, computers, smart meters and Wi-Fi, to name just a few of the culprits.
While it’s nearly impossible to avoid EMF exposure completely, there are practical ways to limit it. Given the number of EMFs that bombard you all day long, getting educated about the negative effects of EMFs is imperative to your well-being. Particularly if you are dealing with a serious illness, it is well worth your time to reduce your EMF exposure as much as possible. If you have been told EMFs are safe and not a danger to humans, you may want to consider:
The telecommunication industry has manipulated federal regulatory agencies, public health authorities and professionals through powerful and sophisticated lobbying efforts leaving consumers confused and unaware of the health risks associated with EMFs
Any negative health effects from EMFs, similar to smoking, may not be immediately noticeable, but will likely develop gradually over time. Cell phones indeed are the cigarette public health threat of the 21st century.

Important that we ALL start calling it what it is according to Webster’s Dictionary- Microwave Sickness:
Please Circulate to Others!
(Note: I think it is important to use a term that Webster Dictionary recognizes. When I enter electrohypersensitivity, electro hypersensitivity, electrosensitivity, EHS nothing comes up and it is not recognize d . If we are going to try to get this and other sicknesses caused by microwave radiation recognized and get protection, I think it is important to start with a term that is recognized.
I realize this term does not refer to all electrosensitivity in the very low range like from electrical wiring but right now we are trying to address the massive roll out of 5G with its very high frequencies. I think we all need to start using a term that does not in its nature marginalize us, is not bashed and discredited online as EHS is, and refers directly to what is happening: people are getting sick from microwaves. I would like people to at least refer to Microwave sickness to increase people’s understanding and then they can also add that people are also getting sick from the lower frequencies as well.
Our communities are about to be majorly assaulted by 5G; I think we need to do everything we can to get decision makers to understand the problem and act to protect.)

Invitation to participate in research into environmental sensitivities
Seeking Safe Refuge: Negotiating housing precarity in the face of Environmental Sensitivities.
My name is Adrienne Brodie and I am a PhD candidate at La Trobe University. I am currently conducting a research project in anthropology, aimed at investigating the health seeking behaviours of people who suffer Environmental Sensitivities. I am particularly interested in finding out how people who are susceptible to low-level pollutants find ways to accommodate their illnesses within the home environment. I am seeking participants who reside in Victoria, Australia, aged between 18 – 70 years, who identify as having one or more of the following health conditions: Lyme Disease, Mould Illness, multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and/or wind turbine syndrome, and who also experience illness-related difficulties related to housing.
I am seeking participants who would agree to a two-stage interview process and be able to meet in person over two visits. The first meeting will be attended by a research team of two people, myself and a research assistant, with participants who are agreeable to having photographs being taken of various things around the home that demonstrate the strategies you use to create, maintain and manage safe living space. These may be photographs of how you have used masking tape to seal up drafts in windows and doorways, shielding your living space from sound or wi-fi pollution, outgassing groceries in outdoor spaces, or airing out clothing, all of which is related to living with environmental illness. The second meeting will just be attended by myself and will be solely focused on the interview that is expected to take between one to two hours. Interviews and the participant’s explanations of the photographs being taken will be digitally recorded.
I understand that some people who suffer Environmental Sensitivities may not have access to a computer,so if anyone knows of others with EHS to whom this research may be of interest, please pass on the details of this recruitment advertisement to them. This research will be conducted in such a manner that the identities of participants will remain strictly confidential. It is a requirement that participants be interviewed without the assistance of a carer or family member. I have personal experience with MCS, and my research assistants and I welcome thorough instructions on how we can best accommodate your needs to ensure your participation in this research project. We will endeavour to make every effort to accommodate the fragrance, chemical and electromagnetic radiation free requests of each participant on an individual needs basis.
If you live in the Australian state of Victoria, are aged between 18 – 70 years, and experience Environmental Sensitivities as a symptom of one or more of the five conditions mentioned above, please contact me to express your interest to participate by sending an email firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject heading: Project Number HEC17-104.

What is 5G? Here confusion comes…
OK, I see what’s about to happen in this debate: exactly what happens in the “comments” section of this article. The health effects of 5G cannot be discussed, when industry experts say that people do not even know what 5G is. The same arguments can happen in decision makers’ room. Iris
“The mm wave in fact > 20 GHz, not true mm wave….the rest of the issues he tries to make us worry about just fall away”
Phil Chadwick Jeanine • 4 months ago the thing is, 5G is not a new cell technology. It’s a wrapper for existing technologies, including 3G and 4 G. The only bits that will involve new cell towers, or changes to existing ones, will be essentially the same as existing 3G and 4G technologies. The mm wave (in fact > 20 GHz, not true mm wave) that the author confuses with “5G” would be used just for line-of-sight data transfer, much as it is now
The problem is that the author simply doesn’t know anything about the technology and thinks that 5G=mm wave. Once we understand that to be wrong, then the rest of the issues he tries to make us worry about just fall away

Petition re: legislation to streamline cellular antenna permits
Dear New Mexicans and Others Facing Legislation Re Streamlining Cellular Antenna Permits:
In the legislative session that begins January 16, New Mexico legislators will face a bill to streamline the cellular antenna permit process. This bill is similar to the one that California’s Governor Jerry Brown vetoed in October. It’s similar to one that has moved 80 municipalities in Ohio to sue their state.
Please sign the petition to New Mexican legislators opposing this bill, the Wireless Consumer Advanced Infrastructure Investment Act (WCAIIA).

A study funded by by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences was just published December 13, 2017 which found that, pregnant women exposed to high non-ionizing radiation levels from sources like “power lines, transformers, wireless networks, smart meter networks, cell towers, wireless devices such as cell phones” had “an almost three-fold increased risk of miscarriage if a pregnant woman was exposed to higher MF [magnetic field] levels compared to women with lower MF exposure“
(10.4% miscarriage rate in low radiation exposure subjects compared to 24.2% in the high radiation exposure subjects.) Non-ionizing radiation levels were objectively measured for over 900 pregnant women in this study. Reuters has reported on this study (see below) as well as Science Daily
De-Kun Li, MD, PhD, is the principal investigator of the study and a reproductive and perinatal epidemiologist at the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California.

the article even says “go ahead and leave your phone in your pocket. Talk on it for hours. Heck, you could duct-tape it to your face if you so choose. “
Unfortunately, NPR radio picked up on it, and on Dec. 31st, Ira Flatow of Science Friday interviewed Popular Science editor Sophia Bushwick.
In the interview, Bushwick stated:
“…I think the scientific consensus right now is they haven’t found a strong connection between exposure to cell phone radiation and brain cancer or other health problems…”
And about the recently released California guidelines, she went on to say,
“The guidelines are a little misguided. Because it’s creating a lot of fear around an issue that we’re not sure people actually need to be afraid of.”

IRA FLATOW: So California guidelines about how to reduce exposure to cell phone radiation. Doesn’t say that it definitely causes cancer or other illnesses, but people have sort of interpreted it that way.
SOPHIE BUSHWICK: Right. I mean, the fact that they’ve issued guidelines saying, here’s how to reduce your cell phone exposure, seems to indicate that cell phone exposure is a problem. Whereas in reality, I think the scientific consensus right now is they haven’t found a strong connection between exposure to cell phone radiation and brain cancer or other health problems. But they have said that we need to keep studying this issue in the long term.
IRA FLATOW: So the people who are anti-cell phone radiation exposure- they jumped on this to say, see, we’re right?
SOPHIE BUSHWICK: Right. Some people I think have. They’ve said, look, this is vindication. But I think that for that reason, the guidelines are a little misguided. Because it’s creating a lot of fear around an issue that we’re not sure people actually need to be afraid of.
And I think really, the biggest health hazard that cell phones cause is a real health hazard, and that’s texting and driving. And texting and driving has killed and will kill far more people than brain cancer caused by cell phone radiation. So I think that if people are trying to find an issue to worry about, then that’s what they should be focusing on.

City of Aberdeen paves the way for 5G
28 September 2017
City of Aberdeen paves the way for 5G thanks to Wireless Infrastructure Group and O2
Wireless Infrastructure Group (WIG) and O2 have partnered to launch the UK’s first fibre-connected small cell network, supporting C-RAN technology for faster and higher capacity mobile services. WIG also announces plans to significantly expand its fibre operations focused on serving mobile networks.
WIG’s new wireless infrastructure uses a network of small cells attached to lamp-posts and traffic lights across Aberdeen’s city centre. The small cells are connected back to a nearby hub using WIG’s newly constructed fibre links which enable new network models that deliver faster and higher capacity mobile services. The infrastructure was designed, deployed and funded by WIG and is built to support all mobile operators as well as other wireless networks.
O2 is the first mobile operator to launch its services using the infrastructure and has played a key role in its development, deploying C-RAN technology which is new to the UK. O2 will initially run advanced 4G services but the fibre-connected small cells pave the way for 5G by enabling even faster speeds, lower latency and better coordination between cells than traditional network methods. Better coordination and lower latency is essential for the advancement of future applications such as driverless vehicles.
The first wave of small cell deployment in Aberdeen has now been switched on in key parts of the city and the network passes busy public venues such as the central railway station, Aberdeen University and Aberdeen FC’s stadium. The network is expected to extend across the rest of the city in the years ahead.
Scott Coates, CEO Wireless Infrastructure Group:
“Every major city in the UK is thinking about small cells but in the race to be 5G ready, Aberdeen’s city council had the vision to unlock industry investment in the enabling wireless infrastructure needed to transform mobile connectivity. Aberdeen City Council’s close collaboration in the planning and deployment of our infrastructure has been critical to the project’s success.”
“Our Aberdeen investment marks a step change in WIG’s fibre ambitions. There is an urgent need for more fibre infrastructure to support the UK’s wireless sector and WIG plans to address this by constructing bespoke new fibre networks for the deployment of small cells and their integration with existing mobile backhaul networks.”
Brendan O’Reilly, Chief Technology Officer at O2 said
“We are delighted to be working with WIG on this project. Building digital connectivity into our economic future now is essential to ensuring that Scotland, and the rest of the UK, become some of the best-connected countries in the world. The small cell network in Aberdeen represents a successful collaboration between council, infrastructure provider and mobile network operator. It is a crucial step along the path to making the UK 5G ready.”
Councillor Douglas Lumsden, Aberdeen City Council co-leader said:
“We have a clear vision of enabling the best mobile and wireless connectivity across Aberdeen to stimulate local economic growth. Many departments across the council have engaged closely with WIG to develop the processes needed to make this happen. We are delighted with the deployment of this state of the art network by WIG, with O2 as the first mobile network to come on board”.
Notes to Editors
Delivering greater wireless speeds, more bandwidth and the move towards 5G requires a new layer of small cell network infrastructure to be deployed along the UK’s city streets. Small cells use lower power transmitters placed closer to street level to deliver extra capacity where it’s needed. The UK will need more than one hundred thousand small cells over the next decade in order to keep pace with demand and to deliver 5G technology and city councils have a vital role to play in enabling their deployment on a cost-effective basis. Aberdeen City Council focused its concession model on unlocking investment in infrastructure that would serve the city into the future, and WIG was selected as its wireless infrastructure partner following a competitive tender process. WIG expects to invest in excess of £10m in new fibre and associated infrastructure into Aberdeen over the concession.
Following its appointment WIG has worked closely with different departments in Aberdeen City Council including planning, traffic, legal, intelligent transport systems and street-lighting to ensure a streamlined set of processes for deployment and operation of small cells. WIG has also rented duct from Aberdeen City council to enable it to deploy its own fibre – this was essential given that access to BT Openreach duct is currently denied to operators such as WIG.
O2 engaged with WIG at an early stage in the process and as network anchor has played a key role in shaping the network.
WIG’s infrastructure solution is based on a significant deployment of fibre with each lamp-post or traffic light being connected to multiple dark fibres. This investment enables new types of mobile architecture to be deployed including centralised RAN (C-RAN). C-RAN is new to the UK but is being extensively deployed in other markets such as the US and it allows for more efficient use and better coordination of network resources leading to lower latency and faster speeds for end user devices. With multiple fibres to every node, WIG’s infrastructure is truly 5G-ready.

Arqiva to make London lampposts into 5G-ready cells
Lampposts and other street furniture look set to become part of the UK’s next-generation 5G networks, hosting small cell telecommunications infrastructure to enable better, faster coverage by mobile network operators.
UK communications infrastructure company Arqiva has inked a deal with the London Borough of Waltham Forest to gain exclusive access rights to 16,000 lamppost in the area, and within the 10 years of the contract intends to use them for the deployment of small cell technology.
Jonathan Freeman, Technology Director, Arqiva told 5G.co.uk: “The Waltham Forest concession alone involves around 16,000 lampposts as potential small cell sites. Not every available concession site will carry a small cell, but across London we would expect to eventually see small cell deployments in the hundreds of thousands.”
Small cells are routinely used by the telecoms industry to boost mobile coverage in areas that lack reliable signals, or to cope with unusually high demand for bandwidth. They’re often installed on street furniture, the sides of buildings, and in shopping centres to allow people to use mobile devices without connection problems.
“Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) – sometimes known as Fixed Wireless Broadband – is an alternative means of providing internet connectivity that uses wireless network technology rather than fixed lines,” said Freeman. “An access unit is attached to street furniture – like a lamppost – which then wirelessly connects to a receiver placed inside a home or business property; the receiver then feeds a router (often integrated into the same form factor) which provides WiFi signal into the building, enabling users to connect their numerous everyday devices.”
FWA will be critical to 5G networks when they begin to offer services in the 2020s. 5G will use much higher frequencies with much shorter wavelengths, called millimetre waves (mmWave). This technique achieves incredibly high bandwidths, but only over very short distances. For that reason it’s expected that the backbone to 5G networks will be fibre optic cables between macro sites on towers and rooftops, with a vast network of WiFi access points – or small cells – in dense urban areas, and a new generation of super-fast fixed line wireless routers.
“The next generation of FWA will use innovative 5G technologies to deliver a high throughput with potential for 1Gbps or more, along with latency as low as 1ms – both considerable enhancements not only to existing wireless standards but also currently deployed fixed technologies,” said Freeman.
Arqiva also plans to deploy WiFi access points on lampposts in town centres across Waltham Forest to provide free public access to WiFi services. This is not uncommon now; street furniture already plays an important role in providing 4G signals to densely populated areas.
Arqiva already has fourteen similar concessions in London (Barnet, Brent, Camden, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Harrow, Hounslow, Islington, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Lambeth, Merton, Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth) as well as in Manchester, Southampton, Colchester, Eastbourne and Medway.
Freeman added: “We are delighted to be working with 14 London boroughs so far and look forward to engaging with others as they launch their tender processes.”
5G ready small cells coming to Lambeth’s lamp posts
By Jon Mundy 15 August 2017
UK communications infrastructure company Arqiva has won the right to fit 5G-ready small cell technology to street furniture in a key area of London.
Arqiva now has exclusive access rights to approximately 15,000 lamp posts across The London Borough of Lambeth, making it the twelfth such Borough concession in the UK capital following on from Barnet, Brent, Camden, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Harrow, Hounslow, Islington, Merton, Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth.
Similar deals have also been struck in Manchester, Southampton, Colchester, Eastbourne and Medway.
The plan is to fit so-called small cells to lamp posts in these areas, which will initially be used to boost mobile capacity where demand is particularly high or existing coverage is poor. Of more interest is the fact that these small cells will be essential to the rollout of 5G from 2020, where multiple smaller cellular nodes will replace large solitary base stations.
In addition to lamp posts, these compact cellular radio access nodes can be fitted to the sides of buildings or even inside venues where a concentration of phone users can compromise performance.
Nicolas Ott, Managing Director of Telecoms & M2M at Arqiva, said: “Today’s consumers and businesses are heavily reliant on a fast, uninterrupted mobile connection – it is a necessity for everyone. Building on our strong heritage in this area, Arqiva is delighted to be working with Lambeth Council in leveraging their street infrastructure for the roll-out of small cells on behalf of the mobile operators in the years to come, when and where it will be needed to increase mobile coverage or capacity.
“It will allow Lambeth citizens, consumers, visitors and businesses to be better informed, entertained and connected on-the-go. It is also an integral key step in Arqiva’s strategy to be central to the UK’s telecommunications infrastructure – today in 4G, tomorrow in 5G.”
In addition to these small cell efforts, Arqiva recently commenced a 5G Fixed Wireless Access trial in central London, which will one day provide a more affordable and convenient alternative to current wired broadband services using 5G infrastructure.

French ban on kids’ phones should be imported to Scotland
Author: Donald MacLeod, 18 December 2017
IT was a bold move that sent shockwaves throughout France, but has barely caused a ripple on this side of the Channel.
The French Governments education minister, Jean-Michel Blanquer, has announced a total ban on pupils using mobile phones in schools.
The ban will be rigorously enforced and includes playtimes and lunchtimes.
Opinion between teachers, parents and some pupils is bitterly divided.
Many pro-phoners claim children must be able to live in their time and not the past, that a smartphone helps make smarter pupils and they are up in arms over the Government’s Big brother attitude.
Blanquer is playing a blinder.
And we should consider banning their use in our schools as well.
Why? Well, as Blanquer points out: “These days children don’t play at break time anymore, they are just in front of their smartphones, and from an educational point of view that’s a problem.”
He has a point.
The rise of the smartphone has given rise to the stooped neck, glazed eyes, arthritic fingers and loss of social skills.
Don’t get me wrong, kids still play games in the playground but not games I once played in all weathers and games which invigorated, energised and kept me fit and healthy.
Activities such as simply running around, playing football, tumbling and tig.
Today it’s lazy, unhealthy, mind-numbing android games played out and shared on phones and tablets, interspersed with checking in and updating their social media posts or web browsing, without limit or parental control.
Studies in France, a country similar to Scotland, that more than 90% of children between the ages of 12-17 own a mobile, and their use has not just taken over the playground but also expanded into the classroom,
with almost 40% of school punishments now mobile phone related.
So a total ban of their use at school seems to be the only answer.
But any ban here is almost certainly going to have the PC bleeding hearts spitting their collective dummies out.
You know the lot, those who will happily shut schools as soon as a single flake of snow falls.
But let’s not just stop the ban with our children.
Let’s lead by example, especially our politicians.
I say ban their use from all government debates, enquiries and committees. From both the Houses of Parliament, Scottish Government and Local Councils.
I’m sick of seeing politicians and councillors of all parties, scurrilously tweeting, messaging and snapchatting snide remarks while an important debate, is taking place.
Sacre blue! Il faut arreter – it has to stop!
EMFs and miscarriages: The evidence mounts

San Francisco Chronicle
Q & A with Prof Howard Carp, an expert of repeating miscarriages in Israel
Small Five, Elad Zaret
Cell phone use increases the risk of miscarriage 3 fold
Q: A study examined 900 pregnant women who carried monitoring devices, that measured the radiation in their body for 24 hours. The study found, that they were exposed to the highest radiation level from cell phones or wireless devices.
It is known that radiation can affect the chromosoms structure and lead to repeated miscarriages. We saw the consequences of high radiation like was in Chernobyl, on pregnant women.
Q: How is it expressed?
There are two main causes of miscarriages- a fetus that develops in the wrong way, or something in the reproductive system of the mother, that does not give the fetus to develop. High radiation can cause defects in the fetus structure, in its DNA, or a problem in the mother.
Q: Is there is an increase in the number of miscarriages since the smartphones entered into our lives?
Definitely, as well as increase in the number of sterility cases in men. How
much it is because of radiation or other things? We don’t exactly know. But it
is impossible to ignore the fact, that people spend today hours and hours with
Q: How can pregnant women be careful?
To take the device away from the body – from the ovaries or the uterus. To try to talk with earpiece and not to load the phone close to us. How much will it minimize the number of miscarriages? We will be able to know only in the future.

On October 15th, 2017 Governor Brown VETOED SB649, a bill that would have allowed the telecom industry to bypass traditional planning channels at the local government level, and install new cell towers on every power pole in the state with virtually no oversight.
While the telecom industry is licking its wounds now, they will likely be back soon with further attempts to erase local governments’ planning role. We must keep the pressure on.
