Our society has been hit with a behavioral scourge. The modern-day plague is called "Last Minute Itis." To find out if you suffer from the disease, consult the following list of most common symptoms:

"Last week, Apple released an iOS 7 fix, addressing user complaints that the mobile operating system was making them queasy. ("Note to self: get Dramamine," Mia Farrow tweeted.) It's not the only tech-induced ailment; office drones and teen phone addicts alike are coming down with illnesses as trendy as the devices that inflict them. According to recent research, that hunchback you're developing might really be your cell phone's fault. . . .

Psychologist Sherry Turkle talks to Bill about why we expect too much from technology and not enough from each other.
"If you think a lot of people are looking down these days, it's because they are. We often see people focused so intensely on the latest text or tweet coming from their smartphone, that they seem virtually oblivious to the world around them.
"This week, Bill talks to MIT professor Sherry Turkle, who has studied our relationship with technology for over three decades, about what this constant engagement means for our culture and our society. Turkle, author of Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other, says our devices are not only changing the way we communicate and interact with each other, but also who we are as human beings.
"What concerns me as a developmental psychologist is watching children grow in this new world where being bored is something that never has to be tolerated for a moment," Turkle tells Moyers. "Everyone is always having their attention divided between the world of people [they're] with and this 'other' reality."
"Last week, I almost killed my daughter.
"It started off as really any other week ever does. My husband had been travelling pretty much non-stop for nearly the entire month. Whether we wanted to or not, we were all falling into a fairly regular rhythm without him, at least Monday-Friday. With school and activities and for better or worse, the days seemed to move rather quickly, but by evening, all three of us were stretched thin. Collectively, we all seemed to peak at maximum crabbiness somewhere around 6 p.m. It was shortly after this time last Wednesday night that I brought the kids upstairs to help them get washed up for bed. . . .
"People talk about distracted driving, but it's more than that. It's distracted living. And that doesn't just leave you feeling empty and dissatisfied. As I proved to myself and to my daughter, it can be downright dangerous.

Comment: This may be one of the most important documentaries ever made. You will need almost 90 minutes to watch the entire film, but it is time well spent. Anyone using wireless devices should watch this film.
RESONANCE is an eye opening documentary which reveals the harm we are doing by existing in an ocean of man made wireless frequencies.
Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, which was filled with a natural frequency. As life slowly evolved, it did so surrounded by this frequency. and Inevitably, it began tuning in.
By the time mankind arrived on earth an incredible relationship had been struck; a relationship that science is just beginning to comprehend.
Research is showing that being exposed to this frequency is absolutely integral to us. It controls our mental and physical health, it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, and it aids our immune system and improves our sense of wellbeing.
Not only are we surrounded by natural frequencies, our bodies are filled with them too. Our cells communicate using electro magnetic frequencies. Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies and our DNA delivers instructions, using frequency waves. Without them we couldn't exist for more than a second.
This delicate balance has taken billions of years to perfect. But over the last 25 years the harmony has been disturbed. and disturbed dramatically.
Mankind has submerged itself in an ocean of artificial frequencies. They are all around us, filling the air and drowning out the earth's natural resonance.
To the naked eye the planet appears to be the same. But at a cellular level it is the biggest change that life on earth has endured; the effects of which we are just starting to see and feel.

"CAN you remember the last time you were in a public space in America and didn't notice that half the people around you were bent over a digital screen, thumbing a connection to somewhere else?
"Most of us are well aware of the convenience that instant electronic access provides. Less has been said about the costs. Research that my colleagues and I have just completed, to be published in a forthcoming issue of Psychological Science, suggests that one measurable toll may be on our biological capacity to connect with other people.
"Our ingrained habits change us. Neurons that fire together, wire together, neuroscientists like to say, reflecting the increasing evidence that experiences leave imprints on our neural pathways, a phenomenon called neuroplasticity. Any habit molds the very structure of your brain in ways that strengthen your proclivity for that habit. . . .
"Your brain is tied to your heart by your vagus nerve. Subtle variations in your heart rate reveal the strength of this brain-heart connection, and as such, heart-rate variability provides an index of your vagal tone.
"By and large, the higher your vagal tone the better. It means your body is better able to regulate the internal systems that keep you healthy, like your cardiovascular, glucose and immune responses.
"Beyond these health effects, the behavioral neuroscientist Stephen Porges has shown that vagal tone is central to things like facial expressivity and the ability to tune in to the frequency of the human voice. By increasing people's vagal tone, we increase their capacity for connection, friendship and empathy. . . .
Japan estimates that more than 500,000 school-age kids are pathologically addicted to the Internet. Could gadget-free camps help them?
"According to a recent government-funded study in Japan, 518,000 students between the ages of 12 and 18 are "pathologically" addicted to the Internet. The study, conducted by Nihon University, surveyed 100,000 students, finding 8.1 percent to be in a suspected state of Internet addiction.
"Of those who demonstrated symptoms of Internet addiction -- including increasing absorption in and obsession with online activities at all hours of the day; symptoms of depression; decreasing school performance; and deep vein thrombosis -- 23 percent also had trouble sleeping, and 15 percent woke often in the night.
"To combat this, Japan's Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry is planning further research, as well as Internet-free camps that will separate children from their computers, smartphones, and portable gaming consoles.
"These camps, which the government plans to implement in the next fiscal year, will focus on outdoor activity, as well as group activities to emphasize the value of face-to-face communication. . . .
Can microwaves alter our brains and DNA?
"Released in 2000, Public Exposure is the first - and still definitive - independently produced investigative report on this key issue, the human health dangers of Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) from cell phones & cell towers... and what we can do to protect ourselves.
"Broadcast on LinkTV and in constant use by community groups and concerned citizens around the world, with thousands of DVD copies sold, we now make the authorized one-hour version of Public Exposure available on-line for the first time. DVD copies are available for purchase here: http://www.eon3.net/emr_protection/docs/public_exposure.html

Many people are searching for something that will protect them and their loved ones from pervasive RF. Unfortunately, there are many unscrupulous or ignorant people out there who are trying to sell gadgets that have proven to be worthless at best, or, worse, harmful. So far, there is no pendant or gadget that independent researchers have found to protect against exposures. Undoubtedly, the best and safest approach is to eliminate the source or remove ourselves from its proximity, and boost our immune systems to help our bodies cope.

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
