When Science Is No Longer the Truth…
USA Created: 25 Aug 2015
From the Dr Mercola web site:
Following is an excerpt from the end of the excellent article: When Science Is No Longer the Truth…

Our society is largely built on the idea that science can help us make good, solid decisions. But now we’re facing a world so rife with problems caused by the very sciences that were supposed to keep us healthy, safe, and productive, it’s quite clear that we’re heading toward more than one proverbial brick wall. In a sense, the fundamental role of science itself has been hijacked for selfish gain. Looking back, you can now see that the preferred business model of an industry was created first, followed by “scientific evidence” that supports the established business model.

When the science doesn’t support the company’s economic gains, it’s swept under the rug, even if people are dying and the planet is becoming irreparably poisoned as a result. Today we live in a world where chemical companies and biotech giants can easily buy and pay for their own research studies, as well as the lobbying to support whatever legislation they need passed in their favor. Conflicts of interest have become the norm within virtually all fields of science, which creates a completely unworkable – and dangerous – situation in the long run.
And after you read the above article Google “Hillary Clinton and Monsanto”. For example:

Govt sends a message
India Created: 23 Aug 2015
Mobile tower operators may end up footing the bill for the medical treatment of cancer patients as the Delhi Government is planning on introducing a hazard exposure insurance fund.

The government is planning on setting up State and district level committees to handle public grievances, which is as per a guideline issued by the Union Ministry of Communication and IT in November 2014.

In addition, the committees will grant licences for towers and run a compensation cell for seriously ill patients in the vicinity of towers. The granting of licenses may lead to a tussle with the municipal corporations, which have been issuing licences to operators so far.

Bijwasan MLA Col. (retd.) Devinder Sehrawat, who drafted the policy, said the document would be implemented as a government order or introduced in the Assembly as a Bill.

“We want cell phones to work efficiently and are not against operators. But there are doubts about the level of radiation and the possible harmful effects. Tobacco companies claimed till 1994 that there was no link between smoking cigarettes and cancer,” said Col. Sehrawat.

The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Cancer Research had found exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including from wireless communication devices, “possibly carcinogenic” in 2011.

Though there have been cases of cancer in the vicinity of towers, there is no scientific consensus on whether the radiation was to blame. Dwarka MLA Adarsh Shastri, who has also worked on the issue, said the government was not questioning existing guidelines by the WHO and the Supreme Court.

“But, we have a doubt that mobile tower operators are not following the rules when it comes to radiation levels, and air and noise pollution caused by the generators,” said Mr. Shastri.

As per the draft, the State Technical Committee will establish policies and ensure compliance with safety norms. The committee will also carry out an audit of electromagnetic radiation across Delhi.

“This will enable us to locate blank spots that need more towers and find areas that have too much radiation where the number of towers is too much,” said Col. Sehrawat.

The committee will also issue guidelines on space and premises permitted for installing towers in each district based on the radiation audit.

The District Technical Committees will work as nodal centres for giving permission for mobile towers, and interact with RWAs to select and shortlist sites. This will give operators a single window for clearance,” said Col. Sehrawat.

Residents of a district can approach the committee if they have a grievance related to illness attributable to the tower in their area. The committee will coordinate a compensation cell for seriously ill patients.

Orchard Park woman: 'I'll fight church phone masts tooth and nail'
United Kingdom Created: 23 Aug 2015
A GRANDMOTHER-OF-SIX says she will fight tooth and nail to stop mobile phone masts being put up at St Michael's and All Angel's Church.

Under plans, two masts currently fixed on the roof of the Gorthorpe tower block will be moved to the church, paving the way for the high-rise to be demolished.

It is understood the Diocese of York will receive a sum, as yet undisclosed, for allowing Vodafone to erect the masts in the church, which is opposite Orchard Park's new shopping centre and close to homes.

Janet Nevet, 70, who lives in Orchard Park Road, has launched a petition against the plans.

She said: "I don't want to be living near mobile phone masts and people I have spoken to feel the same. We're going to be receiving waves from the masts 24/7."

Mrs Nevet, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2001, refuses to accept reassurances by Vodafone masts are designed to be compliant with guidelines set by the International Commission on Non- Ionizing Radiation Protection.

"No one can be 100 per cent sure these masts are safe," she said.

Mrs Nevet says she fought similar plans to install a mast in the church a decade ago.

St Michael's Reverend Canon David Walker wrote to her informing her of the latest proposal.

"He told me, 'I know you're against it, Janet'. I'm now going door to door collecting signatures for the petition."

A public meeting will be held at 6pm on Thursday, September 24, at The Orchard Centre. Orchard Park ward councillors have been invited to attend.

In a previous statement, Jane Frapwell, Vodafone's corporate communications manager, said: "We are progressing the replacement site for the antennas at the Gorthorpe flats.

"This will be located at the parish church of St Michael's and All Angels.

"We are still in the process of finalising details with our site provider, so I cannot give a date for removal at the moment.

"We understand some people have concerns about masts in the community, but we make sure all our masts are designed to be compliant with guidelines set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection.

"Mobile phone masts operate at very low power levels and have to be located where people use their mobile phones – where they live, work and travel."

London brace yourselves: Virgin Media is planning an Invasion!
United Kingdom Created: 22 Aug 2015
'Free access for all': Virgin Media announces plans for London-wide WiFi broadband network
Network set to challenge BT's Openzone
Virgin could wholesale access to mobile networks.

London could soon be covered with a free public WiFi network as Virgin Media moves to challenge BT's Openzone network.
Virgin Media's network would be freely available to anyone at 0.5Mbps, and to subscribers to its home broadband at speeds up to a blistering 10Mbps.
The proposals would see WiFi routers installed in each of the company's street-side cabinets, which distribute its cable network to homes and businesses.

Neil Berkett, the company's chief executive, has announced they are are in advanced negotiations with London councils to gain permission for the necessary works.

'The proposition would be that we would provide free WiFi access for all,' he told investors.

British scientist develops radiation-proof 'underpants for superheroes'

British scientist develops radiation-proof 'underpants for superheroes'
Underpants that block potentially harmful electromagnetic radiation from smartphones and laptops have been developed in the UK.

A British scientist has developed a new line of underpants called Wireless Armour, that aims to protect male fertility by blocking electromagnetic radiation from Wi-Fi devices such as smartphones and laptops.

Described by Sir Richard Branson as “underpants for superheroes”, the pants use a mesh of pure silver woven into fabric, which disrupts the flow of electromagnetic radiation due to silver being a conductor of electricity – a bit like a Faraday cage.

Any electromagnetic radiation becomes distributed evenly around the silver mesh, preventing it from flowing through the fabric, according to Joseph Perkins, who developed the underpants after a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

Independent tests show that Wireless Armour’s "RadiaTex" fabric shields against 99.9 per cent of the radiation emitted between 100MHz to 2.6GHz. This covers the entire range of radiation emitted by wireless devices, from voice and text through to 4G and Wi-Fi.

Furthermore, the silver fibres in Wireless Armour are highly anti-microbial, which means they increase hygiene by preventing the spread of bacteria and other microbes that cause smells.

We can’t ignore that technology is changing our brains: Notice that the one thing left out is "Wireless Internet"
United Kingdom Created: 22 Aug 2015
We can’t ignore that technology is changing our brains
An un-biassed assessment of the effects on humans of digital technology is hardly 'scaremongering’.

Do computer games and internet use wreak havoc on young brains? That’s the debate I seem to have been dragged into, thanks to the potentially adverse effects of information technology (IT) that I described in my recent book Mind Change.

As the Telegraph detailed, an article in the British Medical Journal has now accused me of scaremongering. But its authors (one of whom is a colleague of mine at Oxford University) have got the wrong end of the stick.

I have never suggested that reasonable use of the internet “harms” the adolescent brain. But it’s worth noting that recent research shows that some teens are using IT for up to up to 18 hours per day, when media-multi-tasking is taken into account . Palatable or not, other research suggests that intense use of the internet and video games may lead to microstructural abnormalities in the brain, and the effects may be comparable to those of drug abuse.

A further item on the BMJ charge sheet is that I have not published my claims in peer-reviewed scientific literature. But I am not pretending to conduct experiments that test a specific, falsifiable hypothesis. Rather I set out to provide a review – accessible to everyone – of the current state of all the research in this field.

This research is continuously evolving, just as the technologies it evaluates are doing, and spans a host of complex and diverse disciplines: neurosciences, psychology, sociology, among others. Nonetheless, Mind Change does cite some 250 peer-reviewed papers – as such it has been described by the distinguished neurologist Richard Cytowic, as “the most reference-dense and annotated work of its kind I can recall”.

Brundtland: - Min kropp har reagert på mobilstråling i 25 år
Norway Created: 15 Aug 2015
Gro Harlem Brundtland snakket ut om norsk valgkamp, tiden som Norges første kvinnelige statsminister og sin bekymring for stråling fra mobiltelefoner.

Sendingen ble tatt opp på seilskuta «Boy Leslie», som ligger til kai ved Pollen i Arendal. Frem til tirsdag går det årlige politikkstevnet Arendalsuka av stabelen i sørlandsbyen.

I utspørringen fortalte Brundtland, som er tidligere generaldirektør i Verdens Helseorganisasjon, blant annet om sin skepsis til strålingen fra mobiltelefoner.

- Jeg vil si: Skjerm dere. Ikke gå med mobilen i lomma, sa Brundtland.
Får hodepine av mobilbruk

Hun bruker selv mobiltelefon minst mulig og er opptatt av å holde telefonen langt unna hodet hvis hun for eksempel måtte sende en tekstmelding.

- Jeg kan ikke ha mobilstrålene her oppe. Da får jeg øyeblikkelig hodepine. Min kropp har reagert på mobilstråling i 25 år, sa Brundtland.

Den tidligere norske statsministeren mener forskningsresultater viser at det ikke er noen tvil om at det er negative sider ved bølgene som treffer mennesker på grunn av mobiltelefoner og andre teknologiske innretninger.

Et ekspertutvalg satt ned av norske myndigheter konkluderte i 2013 med at det ikke er et belegg for å si at stråling fra mobiltelefoner, trådløse nettverk og mobilmaster er skadelig eller kan gi helseplager.
- Ble hundset og hetset

Brundtland var Norges første kvinnelige statsminister. Aftenpostens politiske redaktør Trine Eilertsen ville vite hva hun syntes om at syntes om at landet igjen har fått en kvinne som statsminister.

- Det er viktig at dette ikke blir et engangsfenomen. At dette kan gjenta seg er interessant og viktig. Det sprer holdninger blant unge mennesker hva de ser og opplever, påpeker Brundtland.

- Mange av de gangene jeg ble hundset, hetset og utsatt for kampanjelignende utfall, særlig før valg, tenkte jeg: Gro, dette må du tåle.

Hør Gro fortelle om dette i videoklippet øverst.
Solberg har ikke opplevd det samme

Brundtland fortalte at moren ofte stile spørsmål om hvordan hun holdt ut all kritikken hun måtte gjennom fordi hun som kvinne hadde klatret helt til topp i politikken.

- Da sa jeg – neste gang en kvinne blir statsminister vil det bli annerledes. Det synes jeg vi ser nå. Hun som er statsminister nå har ikke hatt så mange angrep som er kjønnsbasert. Det er jeg glad for, sier eksstatsministeren.
- Dagens politikere får ikke fred

Brundtland mener årets valgkamp har mange likhetstrekk med norsk politikk sllik den var da hun var statsminister, men at det også er forskjeller.

- Mediene er enda mer på i hele tiden enn det de var i hvert fall i den første delen av min tid. Nå er det sosiale medier og det ene med det andre hele tiden. De stakkars menneskene får jo ikke fred!

76-åringen avslørte at hun selv ikke har kastet seg ut i verdenen av sosiale medier, men at hun bruker e-post og tekstbehandlingsprogrammer som word.
Ville bedt Clinton på hytta

Gro Harlem Brundtland var statsminister for Arbeiderpartiet i tre perioder: I 1981, 1986-89 og i 1990-1996.

Hun er idag nestleder i FN-rådet «The Elders». I den forbindelse besøkte Brundtland nylig Russland der hun blant annet traff president Vladimir Putin.

- Han var godt forberedt, i godt humør og oppførte seg på en måte som var mer tillitsvekkende enn vi hadde forventet, fortalte Brundtland.

Til tross for uenighet i synet på Ukraina-konflikten sa Brundtland at hun oppfattet Putin som en kunnskapsrik politiker. Men på spørsmål om hvem av topplederne hun hadde møtt hun helst kunne tenkt seg å invitert med på hytta, svarte Brundtland kontant:

- Bill Clinton.

Begrunnelsen var at Clinton var oppvokst i små kår og at han hun derfor kunne se for seg at han ville avfinne seg med hyttas standard.
Utøya sitter i

Stanghelle og Eilertsen spurte også ut Brundtland om den internasjonale terrorutfordringen og det som skjedde på Utøya 22. juli 2011. Brundtland holdt foredrag på AUF-leiren og forlot øya like før massakren den dagen.

I sommer var Brundtland tilbake på Utøya på AUFs første sommerleir siden terroraksjonen.

- Det var på mange måter en lettelse å være tilbake. Den gangen så jeg alle de unge ansiktene foran med da jeg dro, og da kvelden kom var mange borte. Det sitter veldig hardt i, fortalte Brundtland.

- Men å se dem nå, og se at det er kommet mange nye ungdommer til øya var en lettelse for meg, la hun til.
Aktuell gjest hver kveld

Aftenpostens kommentatorer Trine Eilertsen og Harald Stanghelle spør ut en aktuell gjest til debatt hver kveld torsdag til søndag under Arendalsuka.

Torsdag kveld var Ap-nestleder Hadia Tajik første gjest som ble grillet. Hun røpte blant annet hemmeligheten om et forelegg hun fikk etter å ha krasjet reportasjebilen under et sommerivkariat i Aftenposten for 14 år siden.

O2 to be bought for £10.25bn by Three-owner Li Ka-Shing's Hutchison Whampoa; (nickname Scrooge McDuck!)
United Kingdom Created: 10 Aug 2015
Britain’s mobile phone industry today faces its biggest shake-up since the first call was made 30 years ago.
Asia’s wealthiest businessman Li Ka-shing's Hutchison Whampoa has entered exclusive talks to buy O2, the UK’s second-largest mobiles network.

He will put it together with his Three network to create the biggest UK network by some distance and push Vodafone down into third place.

Vodafone and BT shares shot to the top of the FTSE 100 leaderboard on hopes that fewer competitors would mean they could raise prices.

Hutchison will pay at least £9.25 billion and up to £10.25 billion for O2 depending on the combined networks’ future cashflow.

The deal comes a month after BT entered exclusive talks to buy EE, the Orange and Deutsche Telekom-owned network, for £12.5 billion. It had first looked at O2 but preferred to go with the larger business.

Li’s bid appears to be considerably higher than earlier numbers being talked about. It also trumps any potential acquisition by UK competitors Sky and TalkTalk, which were looking at deals or tie-ups with O2 .

But the shrinking of UK mobile suppliers from four to three could face major competition problems with UK and EU regulators likely to investigate both deals.

Hutchison Whampoa said it will offer private-equity firms and other big investors up to 30% of the deal but will raise the majority of the cash for the bid through a £6 billion bank loan.

Li this month announced a massive restructuring of his business and property empires which analysts said would increase his firepower by some $7 billion (£4.6 billion).

He has already made major acquisitions in the UK ranging from Northumbrian Water for £2.4 billion in 2011 to this week’s £1.1 billion takeover of rolling stock group Eversholt Rail.

The deal is being driven by Li’s lieutenant Canning Fok, who headed Three in the UK when it first bought a mobile licence in the £22.5 billion 3G spectrum auction run by then Chancellor Gordon Brown.

Hutchison finance director Frank Sixt predicted savings of between £3 billion and £4 billion from the combination.

He said the deal might not be completed until 2016 because of competition fears from the EU.

But he added: "The European Commission has taken a positive view of four-to-three consolidations of mobile in three cases now and we believe that the precedents that they have set in those transactions will apply for this transaction."

Hutchison already owns Three Italia and last year bought Telefonica’s Irish O2 business.

The deal between Hutchison Whampoa and O2 could create the UK's biggest mobile phone operator Hutchison combines Three Italia with rival in latest stage of mobile merger mania
