Are U.S. Officials Under Silent Attack?
USA Created: 8 Jun 2021
The Havana Syndrome first affected spies and diplomats in Cuba - Now it has spread to the White House.

During the final weeks of the Trump Administration, a senior official on the National Security Council sat at his desk in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, across from the West Wing, on the White House grounds. It was mid-November, and he had recently returned from a work trip abroad. At the end of the day, he left the building and headed toward his car, which was parked a few hundred yards away, along the Ellipse, between the White House and the Washington Monument. As he walked, he began to hear a ringing in his ears. His body went numb, and he had trouble controlling the movement of his legs and his fingers. Trying to speak to a passerby, he had difficulty forming words. “It came on very suddenly,” the official recalled later, while describing the experience to a colleague. “In a matter of about seven minutes, I went from feeling completely fine to thinking, Oh, something’s not right, to being very, very worried and actually thinking I was going to die.”

He fell to the ground before he reached his car, and realized that he was in no condition to drive. Instead, he made his way to Constitution Avenue, where he hoped to hail a taxi. He managed to open the Lyft app on his phone, and ordered a driver, who took him to the hospital. When he arrived at the emergency room, the official thought, I’m probably not walking out of here.

BOLTON: 5G phone mast plans for two sites previously rejected by council
United Kingdom Created: 8 Jun 2021
A TELECOMS firm has resubmitted plans for two 5G phone masts which were thrown put by planners last month when they were described as ‘wholly incongruous’.

Earlier this year, Hutchison UK Ltd applied to install an 18 metre pole at Elgin Street/Shepherds Cross Street, Brownlow Fold, Halliwell, and a second 20 metre pole close to a primary school on Belmont Road in Sharples.

Those plans were rejected but the firm has now said it will reduce the height of both masts to 15 metres to lessen the visual impact.

In documents sent with the application Hutchison said “the height of the poles have been reduced down to the absolute minimum capable of providing the required essential new 5G coverage”.

The proposed site at Elgin Street and Shepherd Cross Street has residential properties to the north, north east and north west and to the south is a play park.

A planning report on the April application said the mast “would be a wholly incongruous and dominant feature, that would be harmful to the mostly residential setting”.

Similar factors were cited in turning down the application on Belmont Road, which is close to to High Lawn primary school.

In the applications Hutchison said the new installations were essential for their customers to access new technology.

Their applications, states: “This specific proposal forms part of an integral requirement for expansion of the 5G telecommunications network within the BL1 area.

“Mobile phone base stations operate on a low power and accordingly base stations therefore need to be located in the areas they are required to serve.

“Increasingly, people are also using their mobiles in their homes and this means we need to position base stations in, or close to, residential areas.”

Hutchison also provided details of locations close to the Belmont Road site which it had rejected due to proximity to other cell sites and residential properties.

They were two other sites on Belmont Road, Andrew Lane, Sharples Hall Drive, the corner of Mackenzie Street/Athlone Avenue and Blackburn Road.

For the Halliwell site they said “there are no other viable locations in the search area to site the equipment”.

After the previous rejections a spokesman for phone network Three, for whom Hutchison is planning the mast sites, said: “Access to 5G has a vital role to play in boosting local economies, helping residents and businesses get faster and more reliable network coverage.

“We are assessing our options for continuing to supply 5G and improved 4G to the residents and businesses of Halliwell and Sharples. We will work with the council to find a way forwards.”

People power helps block plans for giant telephone poles in Hartlepool streets
United Kingdom Created: 8 Jun 2021
Concerned residents have been handed a boost after controversial plans for several new telephone masts in Hartlepool up to 20 meteres tall were refused.

Hartlepool Borough Council’s planning department has refused proposals for numerous new telephone masts in the town after scores of complaints were received from concerned residents.

More than 20 objections were lodged against plans, submitted by Hutchison UK Ltd, for a 20metre telephone mast on the corner of Bamburgh Road and Clavering Road.

Concerns raised included “unsightly views” for residents, its proximity to nearby schools, along with the mast impeding on the available space on footpaths.

Over 20 residents raised concerns over plans for an 18metre-tall mast from the same applicant on the corner of Throston Grange Lane and Pembroke Grove.

Five objections were also lodged over plans for an 18metre mast adjacent to Wooler Road roundabout.

Similar applications were also submitted by Hutchison for 20metre masts on the corner of Mountbatten Road and Cleveland Road, and on land adjacent to the Training and Enterprise Centre in Lynn Street.

However council planning officers have refused all of the applications, in each case noting the location and appearance of the masts would have a negative impact on the area.

A report from senior council planning officer Laura Alderson, in concluding to refuse the proposals for the Throston Grange Lane site, said the development is “unacceptable” in the location for several reasons.

She said: “It is considered that the siting and appearance of the proposed development is unacceptable with respect to the impact on the character and appearance of the surrounding area and to trees.

“The proposed development would result in an overbearing impact on the outlook from a number of neighbouring properties and their gardens.”

Planning documents submitted by WHP Telecoms Ltd, on behalf of the applicant, stated the proposals would have improved 5G mobile phone services in the area.

It said: “Three are in the process of building out the UK’s fastest 5G network.

“To bring this new technology to the people H3G (Three) will need to provide a mix of upgrades to existing sites and the building of new sites.

“In this area there is an acute need for a new mast to deliver the above.”

Objections to the Throston Grange Lane plans stated the mast would be an “eyesore” in the area, and similar concerns were lodged over the proposals for the site on the corner of Bamburgh Road and Clavering Road.

A Bellasis Grove resident said: “We do not want the aesthetics of the local area to be blighted with the introduction of a 20 metre eyesore so close to our home.

“There is potential for vandalism and antisocial behaviour that has already been apparent in other areas of the country by those who protest against the erection of 5G monopoles and associated equipment.”

Another resident on the street added: “The monopole is not in scale with the local buildings, making it visually intrusive and unacceptably prominent within the local area, overshadowing the natural features.”

Relief as bid for 5G mast in middle of Halesowen housing estate thrown out
United Kingdom Created: 8 Jun 2021
A BID for a "monstrosity" mast in the middle of a Halesowen housing estate has been thrown out after more than 200 objections were received.

Hutchinson 3G wanted to build a towering 18-metre 5G mast at the rear of 7, Cricklewood Drive, on the Abbeyfields estate.

The proposal, which attracted hundreds of objections from residents of roads including Cricklewood Drive, Hamilton Avenue, Carisbrooke Drive, Westdean Close and Hartsbourne Drive, has been thrown out by council planners to their delight.

Councillor David Vickers, who welcomed the news, said it was the first time a mast he had objected to had been thrown out, and he has objected to masts in his ward since 1967.

He said: "I'm very, very pleased.

"It was totally the wrong position, on one of the largest housing estates in the borough and its size and appearance would have dwarfed surrounding properties.

"I totally understand why residents felt it would have devalued their properties.

"This is the first time a mast I have objected to has been thrown out.

"The first one I objected to was in 1967, so this is history making for me."

A report by council planners states: "A fine balance needs to be struck between providing the increase capacity for the mobile technology in such residential area and protecting the impact on residential amenity.

"Whilst mobile phone masts are becoming a common feature of the streetscene not just across the Dudley Borough, but across the UK, it is considered that in this case a 18m high mast located in this wholly residential location is not appropriate.

"By virtue of its siting and size, the proposal would be in an exposed and prominent position in the street scene and would materially harm the character and appearance of this residential area.

"It is therefore considered that this forms sustainable grounds upon which to recommend refusal of the application."

Letters of objection centred around the mast being "detrimental to mental health," it being an eyesore, ruining views and devaluing properties and possible health concerns.

One objection stated: "This is completely the wrong site for this monstrosity, a quiet residential area.

"There is waste land on Manor Way. Mucklow Hill is largely industrial.

"I don't understand why what is literally almost in my back garden should be chosen as suitable.

"I have just retired after 40 years teaching local children, I was going to spend a lot of time enjoying my garden ..... but now...for no good reason it will be ruined.

"I am heartbroken."

The estate of around 500 homes is near Leasowes Park and Manor Way in Lapal.

Councillor Vickers said he is worried where the mast will now go. He said a better spot would be on Manor Way close to the motorway.

Hutchinson 3G have been contacted for comment.

Breakthrough in case law on radiation risks
Netherlands Created: 6 Jun 2021
A Dutch Administrative Court does not rule out increased health risks for wireless technology well below exposure limits; safety claimed by ICNIRP limits off the table.

4.4 “In the opinion of the court, considering all arguments, with reference to scientific literature, it cannot be ruled out that there are increased health risks even at a field strength lower than 1 V/m.”

This Dutch legal precedent will indeed have major consequences. There is an enormous amount of scientific evidence that there are indeed health effects from electromagnetic radiation, also far below the applied standards. The exposure limits of the private organization ICNIRP are also increasingly under attack. In addition, the conflict of interest with the telecom industry is becoming increasingly visible.

Actress Juhi Chawla files lawsuit against 5G technology in India, claims it is injurious to health and safety
India Created: 1 Jun 2021
According to the actress, if 5G technology were to be installed, then people and humans will be exposed to radiofrequency radiation (RF) at a rate of 10 times or 100 times the current figure.

Bollywood Actress Juhi Chawla has filed a lawsuit against the implementation of 5G technology in India. According to the actress, if 5G technology were to be installed, then people and humans will be exposed to radiofrequency radiation (RF) at a rate of 10 times or 100 times the current figure.

Juhi Chawla said in a statement, “We are not against the implementation of technological advancements. On the contrary, we enjoy using the latest products that the world of technology has to offer, including in the field of wireless communications. However, whilst using the latter kind of devices, we are in a constant dilemma, because after doing our own research and studies regarding the RF radiation from wirefree gadgets and network cell towers, we have sufficient reason to believe that the radiation is extremely harmful and injurious to the health and safety of the people.”

“The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, coupled with experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, further coupled with epidemiological evidence which supports the conclusion that the major diseases of modern civilization – cancer, heart disease and diabetes – are, in large part, caused by electromagnetic pollution, stems from a literature-base comprising of over 10,000 (ten thousand) peer-reviewed studies, a number much, much, much too large to be ignored,” the statement says.

Juhi Chawla also said that the 5G network will cause “serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems”. The race to develop 5G technology has “somewhat distracted our nation from taking into due consideration some alarming factors to the health of present and future generations,” the actress argued.

A spokesperson for Juhi Chalwa said on the lawsuit being filed, “The present suit is being instituted in order to seek a direction from this Hon’ble court to the arrayed Defendants, to certify to us and, therefore, to the public at large, that 5G technology is safe to humankind, man, woman, adult, child, infant, animals and every type of organisms, to flora, to fauna, and in support thereof, to produce their respective studies regarding RF radiation through mobile cell towers, and if not already conducted, to also conduct an efficient research, and without participation of private interest, and to subsequently furnish the report and declare whether or not the implementation of 5G in India would be safe, keeping un regards the health and safety of the present and future citizenry on India, including little children and infants, as well as infants of generations to come.”

Conspiracy theories about 5G technology have skyrocketed in recent times, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. A great many conspiracy theorists have blamed 5G network for the disease even after repeated clarifications by experts that it has nothing to do with the disease.

5G phones may interfere with aircraft: French regulator
France Created: 15 May 2021
The latest generation of smartphones, 5G, can interfere with aircraft altitude instruments, the French Civil Aviation Authority warned Tuesday as it recommended they should be turned off during flight.

"The utilisation of 5G devices onboard aircraft could lead to risks of interference that could potentially result in errors in altitude readings," a spokesman for the agency told AFP.

The potential phenomenon is due to "signal interference from a close frequency source of a strength that is similar or even superior to that of altimeters."

This interference can cause errors "in instruments that are extremely critical during landing," said the agency, known by its French acronym DGAC.

It sent a bulletin on the issue to airlines last week, recommending that 5G phones should either be turned off completely or put in "airplane mode" during flight

Most countries have long required that mobile phones be turned off or placed in airplane mode due to concerns that previous generations of mobile telecommunications networks can interfere with a plane's navigation and communication equipment.

The DGAC also recommended that in cases of disruption to an aircraft's equipment that the flight crew immediately notify air traffic controllers who can then alert authorities at the airport.

DGAC also noted that it had laid out conditions for the positioning of 5G base stations in order to limit the risks of interference during landing at French airports.

The strength of signals from 5G base stations placed near France's main airports has been restricted, said the DGAC, which has been conducting additional testing since November when French telecommunications operators were given the green light to begin rolling out 5G services.

It is continuing to monitor 5G base stations around all French airports in cooperation with the agency responsible for radio frequencies.

(2020) Man allergic to electricity says it has made him a prisoner in his own home
United Kingdom Created: 14 May 2021
Former bodybuilder Bruno Berrick says the condition, electromagnetic hypersensitivity, left him 'a bag of bones'.

A father of three who claims to be allergic to electricity says he has been left trapped in his own home due to extreme symptoms.

Bruno Berrick, 48, says he began experiencing unexplained burning sensations in his face, popping in his head and lost a massive five stone in weight caused by a reaction to electromagnetic waves.

The former bodybuilder and greyhound trainer from Rothwell in Northamptonshire says it took him years to discover what was causing the symptoms.

He later realised he was suffering from a are and controversial condition called Electrosensitivity - also known as Electromagnetic hypersensitivity, Electrophobia, or Electromagnetic Field Intolerance Syndrome.

Studies suggest that around 4% of people in the UK claim to suffer from some sort of sensitivity or discomfort to electromagnetic fields (EMF).

However it is still up for debate whether the syndrome even exists - and electromagnetic hypersensitivity is currently not recognised by medical professionals as a diagnosable condition.

In fact, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend that anyone presenting with claims of electrosensitivity to be psychologically evaluated.

His condition mirrors that of Chuck McGill, a high-flying lawyer in the Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul.

But Bruno, and and partner Lisa Chambers, 34, say his condition is all too real.

Speaking for just a very brief phone call to avoid what he said was "excruciating physical discomfort", he said he was a normal guy until he began to suffer debilitating fatigue four years ago.

He has since spent upwards of £200,000 travelling the world - including stints in Germany and the USA - in a quest to discover what was causing the debilitating symptoms.

He lost five stone and went from being a hard worker and boxer who loved life to spending months stuck in bed without the energy to move.

He said: "I was a builder - I’m not one of these to go off on one.

"I was just your normal everyday bloke you know? I was a greyhound trainer - trained greyhounds for a living, I was working all day, I’ve got three little kids, I’m living proof of what it does to you."

He added: "I've been seriously ill for about four years - nobody could find out what it was.

"I went everywhere, spent about £200,000 trying to find out what was wrong with me. I didn’t know what it was, we had the internet in the house, wi-fi, a smart TV, all of this and I went to bones - I was a 15 stone, big , powerful builder and I went to 10 and a half stone.

"I was like a bag of bones. I was in bed for six months with chronic fatigue but nobody knew what it was.

"I had a clicking and popping sensation in my head when there was electricity on, and a burning face when I went outside."

Eventually, he says he started to find answers in the American west coast city of Seattle where he tested positive for pesticide poisoning.

He said: "In 2016 I got poisoned by pesticides because I lived next to a field that they were spraying but nobody knew what it was.

"I ended up about a year and a half later having to go to America, Seattle in Washington and they found it in about two days. They sent a urine sample to Kansas and it came back and said I was full of pesticides.

"Basically, it stripped my immune system. It went down to nothing and I kept getting infection after infection and it's turned into this."

Despite finding answers as to why he had suddenly started feeling different, Bruno still didn't feel sure of what was wrong with him until he met a man by the name of Geoff Simmonds.

Bruno said: "I went to a seminar in Brighton about a year ago and there was a man there who had the same problem as me and he did a seminar on it.

"A load of doctors from around the world came to this seminar and I thought ‘Jesus, that sounds like me.’

Geoff told me you will not get better until you’re totally protected - away from wi-fi internet, mobile phones, everything.

Lisa added: "He sent us an EMF reader, he said go round the house and see where it gets the highest.

"We went upstairs into our little girl’s room and it was getting higher and higher and we pointed it out the window and there was a phone mast in direct view of our bedroom window."

Bruno says that in his previous home, which was next to a phone tower, he was "shaking physically and trembling inside".

Following the discovery, the family moved into a caravan in a remote part of Rutland to escape the electromagnetic waves. Staying there for six months, away from the house, he said he gained some weight and his energy had started to return.

When the couple moved back they set their sights on their new home which has now been made secure for Bruno.

They have painted the new bungalow in 5G protective paint - which blocks electric and radio waves. He also keeps the electric turned off, which means no lights, no heating, no TV, or his "eyes go black within ten minutes."

And despite being able to keep his symptoms at bay while in his home, Bruno says he is now trapped in his protective house, unable to go outside.

However as the cold weather and dark nights approach, the family need to use the electricity to keep the house warm. So they have now opted to create a low-tech electricity-free protective haven in the garden where he plans to spend the rest of the winter so his family can have the heating on.

Partner Lisa said: "We’re having a building built in the garden for him because the darker nights are coming now we’ve got three kids and we cant put the heating on, we can’t put the lights on so he’s having a building.

"We’re getting that all protected for him and putting a wood burner in there and a snooker table so he’s got something to do because he can't watch TV and he’s read every book under the sun already."

She added: "He cannot leave the house because people are walking around with phones all the time and within five minutes of him walking past them he will be seriously paralysed.

"It’s hard for people to get their head round it but when you’ve lived with it for four years its absolute hell really. You know what it's like these days, it's technology crazy."

Flaw in Qualcomm phone chips enables backdoor for hackers to record your phone calls
USA Created: 7 May 2021
According to a new report by security firm Check Point Research, Qualcomm’s Mobile Station Modem (MSM) can be exploited by hackers and used to record phone calls and more. MSM dates back to the early 1990s and used in 2G/3G/4G and even 5G devices and presents a serious vulnerability that can be hacked remotely as easily as sending an SMS message.

From there the wrongdoers gain the ability to listen in on your calls, read through your text messages, and can even unlock your SIM card in order to bypass any limitations imposed by carriers. According to reports nearly 30% of all smartphones use Qualcomm chipsets and are thus potential targets of the exploit. The only thing that users can do at the moment is to keep their devices with the most up to date security patch.

"We discovered a vulnerability in a modem data service that can be used to control the modem and dynamically patch it from the application processor. An attacker can use such a vulnerability to inject malicious code into the modem from Android. This gives the attacker access to the user’s call history and SMS, as well as the ability to listen to the user’s conversations. A hacker can exploit the vulnerability to unlock the SIM, thereby overcoming the limitations of the service providers imposed on the mobile device. - Check Point Research"

According to an official statement issued to Tom’s Guide, Qualcomm has already provided software fixes for the MSM exploit back in December 2020 and subsequent security patches should have ironed out the problem. Strangely enough, no Android security bulletin has thus mentioned a fix for the bug. There’s talk that Google will publicly address the exploit fix in its June security patch.
