Kampagnefilm til unge om elektromagnetisk stråling
Denmark Created: 3 Mar 2015
Vi er meget stolte af at kunne præsentere denne kampagnefilm rettet mod unge. Det er en flot og oplysende kampagnefilm
om unges forbrug af trådløs teknologi, som er meget dygtigt udarbejdet af 5 elever fra 9. klasse på Fuglsanggårds-skolen i Virum.

Se filmen her:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nL4N4jjeSyE

Eleverne har lavet en kampagne-film ifm. med en projektopgave om "elektromagnetisk stråling, og dets påvirkning på helbredet". De 3 minutters film, skal fungere som en øjenåbner, til dem der ikke kender til problemet, og som en påmindelse til dem der allerede kender til det. Filmen indeholder fakta om elektromagnetisk stråling, hvor tit vi er i kontakt med elektroniske enheder samt hvilke helbredsproblemer man kan få af strålerne. Filmen viser en almindelig drengs synsvinkel, i hans almindelige hverdag. Vi ser ham fra han står op, spiser morgenmad, går i skole, er i skolen, spiser aftensmad, og går i seng. Alt imens, han har mobilen eller computeren fremme. Selv når han skal sove, har han mobilen liggende ved siden af sig!

Google confirms it wants to be a wireless carrier
USA Created: 3 Mar 2015
Following nearly a year of rumors, Google confirmed on Monday that it plans to offer talk and data plans to customers.

Sundar Pichai, senior VP at Google, said on stage at Mobile World Congress during a presentation that the company is working on a wireless service on a "small scale."

Pichai said Google will become a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), which means it could buy "wholesale access" from Sprint and T-Mobile networks and then sell cellular plans to its own customers.

Google will be treating the experiment as an experience, similar to how it approached the first Nexus phone. After that program succeeded, the company decided to invest more time and resources into growing the brand.

The move would be a departure from Google's core business and signal an even greater emphasis on mobile.

Google is also getting closer to officially launching its solar-powered drone program Project Titan and will send its first fleet into the sky sometime this year.

Pichai outlined how the company aims to bring web connectivity to some of the 4 billion people currently without Internet access. Later this year, it will launch its first fleet of solar-powered drones into the sky as a part of its Project Titan program, he said.

It will also work alongside Project Loon, which involves sending balloons into the sky to serve as floating cell towers to distribute Internet access across a large area.

The Power of the Industrial Lobby: The case of tobacco – how about telecom?
Finland Created: 2 Mar 2015
On February 24, 2015, BMJ published document ““Massive” tobacco industry third party lobbying for revised European Directive” about industry lobbying efforts to affect EU legislation. The full document is available here with additional links in it.

The BMJ document deals with tobacco, classified by IARC to be human carcinogen (Group 1). According to the IARC monograph there are 1 billion of smokers.

Knowing that the tobacco smoke is carcinogenic, the enormous efforts of the tobacco industry, successfully lobbying against EU regulation of tobacco, are astonishing and shocking. Money talks, even if it is against human health.

What is more, the EU law was not about forbidding of smoking but but merely about “…an increase in the size of graphic health warnings, a ban on certain flavourings, restrictions on the size and shape of cigarette packs, and regulation of e-cigarettes...”

This reminds the cell phone package labeling-wars with the telecom industry – e.g. San Francisco…

Letter to the Danish Parliament’s Health and Prevention Committee
Denmark Created: 2 Mar 2015
Audience, 19 mars 2013: The increasing aggravation of the health status of the population with particular focus on neurological/neuropsychological injuries as a result of electromagnetic radiation.

Exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF), especially from radio frequency (microwave frequency) radiation (RFR/MWR) from mobile phones and mast transmitters (GSM, 3G, 4G) wireless (DECT) phones, wireless laptops, tablets, e-readers, wireless networks (Wi-Fi, WLAN, Wi-Max, TETRA, etc.) wireless meters ("smart meters") for measuring electricity, water and heating consumption as well as a wide range of other wireless technology, is threatening public health. In 2011, The World Health Organisation (IARC) updated its warning about the risks to the individual, the environment and professional life, of cancer as a result of radiation from this technology. The radiation represents not only a risk for developing cancer, but also other diseases. The health and functional capacity of current and future generations is in jeopardy.

Protestors are camping out in caravan in a campaign against the installation of a mobile phone mast
United Kingdom Created: 28 Feb 2015
Protestors are camping out in caravan in a campaign against the installation of a mobile phone mast

The campaigners are using the same caravan they had six years ago when they fought against the mast going up on the corner of Grange Drive and Sapcote Drive in Melton.

The protestors thought they had won the battle to stop Vodafone positioning the mast there but they fear the mobile phone company is now looking again at using the site.

Local resident Helen Francis is on the rota of people volunteering to keep the caravan manned 24 hours a day seven days a week.

She said: “I was one of the volunteers who manned the caravan six years ago.

“We are determined to see this out and to let Vodafone know how strongly we feel about this issue.

“We do not want them to position this mast on this site.

As before we shall be here as long as we have to be here.”

She said the team will take it in turn to stay at the caravan for allotted time shifts.

Rutland and Melton MP Sir Alan Duncan has written a letter to Vodafone seeking reassurances the company are not going to site a mast on the location.

A Vodafone spokeswoman said: “We are currently reviewing all options in the area before deciding on the best way forward.”

Har hodepine flere ganger i uka, mobil og stress er årsaken
Norway Created: 28 Feb 2015
Hver tredje tenåringsjente har mye hodepine, viser undersøkelser blant flere tusen ungdommer. – Jeg får det hvis det er mye skolearbeid på en gang. Jeg blir nervøs og det tar over hodet mitt, sier Id Skrivarhaug (16).

«I hvert fall en gang i uka», «hver tredje dag», «jeg pleier vanligvis å ha det, egentlig», svarer 1.-klassingene på Oslo Handelsgymnasium når vi spør hvor ofte de har vondt i hodet.

– Jeg har ofte vondt i tinningen. Hvis det blir veldig ille kjenner jeg et press i hodet, sier Kristine Lippestad. Hun har hodepine hver tredje dag og har vært til lege, uten at legen vant noe unormalt.

En av tre har hodepine

I en studie ble hodepine blant 8000 tenåringer i Nord-Trøndelag kartlagt. 29 prosent av jentene fortalte at de ofte hadde hodepine. Av de hadde nesten halvparten hodepine minst en gang i uka.

For guttene var tallet lavere. 15 prosent fortalte at de hadde hodepine. Litt under halvpartene av dem rapporterte om smerter en gang i uka eller mer.

– Det stykker jo opp din oppmerksomhet. Det gjør at for dem som har dette ofte er det vanskelig å følge normal skolegang, sier hodepineforsker John-Anker Zwart, som forklarer kjønnsforskjellene med hormonforskjeller.

– For mye skole og lite søvn

– Hodepinen kommer ofte av skole. Når du har mye skole blir du sittende oppe til langt på natt, så må du opp igjen tidlig neste morgen. Du går rundt og tenker på skolearbeidet hele dagen, sier Skrivarhaug og støttes av vennene Nanna Nilssen og Stefan Osnes.

1.-klassingene jobber for å få gode karakterer i de avsluttende fagene for å komme inn på det studiet de vil.

Osnes mener dessuten mobilbruk og inneklimaet på skolen har skylden for at han innimellom har hodepine tre ganger i uken.

– Jeg føler det er dårlig luft i klasserommet. Noen ganger bruker jeg også mobil sent på kveldene. Da får jeg ikke sove så godt og så får jeg hodepine dagen etter.

Barnelege Johan Henrik Hagelsteen er bekymret for tenåringenes skjermbruk.

– De er tilgjengelige på data og mobil 24 timer i døgnet. Da får ikke hjernen den hvilen den trenger, sier han.

Puster for å unngå hodepine

Etter Kristine Lippestad fant ut at det ikke var noe galt med hodet, har hun fått hjelp av osteopat.

– Når jeg har en stressende dag, kanskje vondt i hodet, har jeg begynt å legge meg ned og puste dypt ned i magen. Jeg synes det hjelper litt, sier Lippestad.

How airborne Wi-Fi works
USA Created: 28 Feb 2015
AN ALWAYS-connected lifestyle is a blessing for some and a nightmare for others. Aeroplanes used to be the one respite in a typical business traveller's itinerary—a place to escape from the e-mails and phone calls for a few hours, and perhaps even have some good ideas. (Travellers with long memories might remember seatback phones in some countries that allowed exceedingly expensive, poor-quality in-flight phone calls; fortunately, nobody ever used them.) Starting in the early 2000s, however, this blissful seclusion started to come under threat, as airlines started to provide internet service at 10,000 metres. In-air Wi-Fi is now increasingly common on domestic routes in America, and on long-haul routes elsewhere. Given that many routes fly largely over water or over uninhabited areas, how do you connect an aeroplane to the internet?

Mar 2011, USA: Wi-Fi interference with Honeywell avionics prompts Boeing action

Delivering radio signals to a plane is nothing new, but the usual ways of doing it involve low-bandwidth links that would be painfully inadequate for internet traffic. Voice communication remains analogue, even in the digital age. The Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) provides digital links via VHF signals from the ground, or via satellites, allowing planes to send brief bursts of telemetry information. But ACARS operates at data rates comparable to dial-up modems, measured in thousands of bits per second (Kbps). These voice and telemetry systems are designed for international compatibility, reliability and resilience. In-flight internet requires something much more zippy, but with less of a requirement that everything must work perfectly at all times. Two approaches have emerged, one based on ground-to-air links and the other on satellites.

Boeing led the first efforts in the early 2000s, leasing dedicated transponder capacity on geostationary satellites that appear to hover at a fixed point in the sky, and designing an enclosure (or "radome") to be retrofitted on top of its aircraft, and those made by other firms. Its Connexion service provided suitably equipped aircraft with an internet link running at a few megabits per second (Mbps), divvied up among passengers. Boeing also had to retrofit Wi-Fi (and, in some cases, Ethernet cabling) inside planes. But the service never became financially viable, in part because of the high cost of installing and operating the equipment, and Boeing discontinued it in 2006. That same year another firm, now called Gogo, purchased a thin sliver of air-to-ground spectrum in the United States, and began service in 2008, deploying dozens of ground stations that point upwards at aircraft, rather than downwards at people on the ground, and use a variant of 3G mobile-data technology called EV-DO. Service was extended to Canada in 2014. This provides enough bandwidth for e-mail and basic web browsing; Gogo blocks both streaming video and internet telephony to ensure that one user cannot hog all the capacity.

But satellite never entirely went away. After Boeing's early, failed attempt, satellite equipment became lighter, cheaper and more capable, and newer planes are designed to accommodate Wi-Fi gear. Several firms now operate in-flight internet service via satellite; some own the satellites, like Panasonic Avionics (United's contractor for its newer internet service), while others, such as Row 44 and OnAir, license the necessary capacity. Gogo has added satellite-based internet to its options as both a standalone new service and as part of a hybrid service that combines, where available, ground and satellite transmission. Meanwhile, speeds are poised to skyrocket as satellite operators expand service from the lower-frequency Ku band to the higher-frequency Ka band. Data rates should jump from a maximum of roughly 10Mbps to 50-80Mbps per plane. And America's telecoms regulator will auction 500MHz of ground-to-air bandwidth in the near future, which could allow connection speeds of up to one gigabit per second for planes travelling over land. Travellers who worry about feeling out of touch while airborne will welcome these improvements. Those who prefer being disconnected can take solace in the fact that thousands of aircraft worldwide still remain unconnected—for the time being, at least.

Det intelligente hjem er en indbydelse til indbrud
Denmark Created: 28 Feb 2015
Hvis dit hjem er fyldt med trådløs smart styring af døre, gardiner, vinduer og varmesystem, så har du også leveret en ret detaljeret profil af dig selv og din families livsmønster, som uden de store problemer kan aflæses af uvedkommende og bruges til planlægning af indbrud.

Det viser forskning udført af professor Christoph Sorge og et hold forskere på det sydtyske Universität des Saarlandes.

"Mange af systemerne beskytter ikke tilstrækkeligt mod, at udenforstående kan få adgang til dem," siger Christoph Sorge.

En mini-pc er nok

I et forsøg brugte forskerne en mini-pc på størrelse med en pakke cigaretter til at "aflytte" det trådløse home automation system (HAS) hos to frivillige familier. På den måde kunne forskerne afgøre præcis hvor meget data om brugerne, et almindeligt HAS-system afslører.

Forskerne havde ikke adgang til andre oplysninger om de "aflyttede" familier.

Resultatet viser, at ukrypterede systemer afslører store mængder data til alle, som kan få adgang til dem. Og man har ikke brug for hverken særlig viden om systemet eller om brugeren af det, for at få adgang til data.

"Disse data kan analyseres, og på den måde kan man få adgang til systemkommandoer og statusmeddelelser - elementer, som afslører ganske meget om beboernes opførsel og vaner, og som kan bruges til at planlægge et indbrud," siger Christoph Sorge.

"Vi kunne finde ud af, hvornår huset var tomt, og hvordan mønstret var for funktionen af ventilations- og varmesystemet," fortæller han.

Analysen kunne forskerne bruge til at opbygge profiler for familiemedlemmerne.

Krypterede systemer afslører for meget

Selv krypterede systemer kan bruges til analysen. Antallet af krypterede meddelelser bidrager i sig selv til at afgøre, hvornår huset er tomt, viser forskningen.

Forskerne konkluderer ikke overraskende, at der forestår et ret stort arbejde med at sikre systemerne til de smarte hjem. Resultaterne af forskningen bliver fremlagt på en konference i Oxford 25. juli.

Protesters against phone mast back on site after six years
United Kingdom Created: 27 Feb 2015
Protesters campaigning against a planned phone mast to be built in Leicestershire have returned to the site after six years.

In 2009, protesters in Melton Mowbray camped out on the site in a caravan, to stop the mobile phone mast going up, and appeared to have won their battle.

But today, they are back on site once more, after the mobile company were seen on the corner of Grange Drive and Sapcote Drive again.

The protesters don't want the mast because they fear it would be a health risk.

Vodefone say they are reviewing all options before deciding whether to put up the mast.

Vodafone statement:

"Our customers expect to be able to access our 3G and 4G services where they live, work and travel. We are constantly working to improve our services but in order to do this, we must have masts located where people want to use their phones.
We have a requirement to improve both 3G and 4G coverage in this area of Melton Mowbray and whilst we recognise that we have permission to erect a mast at the corner of Grange Drive and Sapcote Drive, we are currently reviewing all options in the area before deciding on which is the best way forward to provide us with the coverage improvement that our customers want."
