Reality Check: Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?

Richard Williams, an American rapper, explains in this video the current state of our social lives.

Why I Refuse to Let Technology Control Me. You need not delete your social networks or destroy your cell phones, the message is simple, be balanced, be mindful, be present, be here. :)



Did you know the average person spends 4 years of his life looking down
at his cell phone?

Kind of ironic, ain't it?

How these touch-screens can make us lose touch.

But it's no wonder in a world filled with

IMac's, iPads and iPhones

So many "i"'s, so many selfies, not enough "us"'s and "we"'s
See, Technology has made us more selfish and separate than ever

Cause while it claims to connect us, connection has gotten no
better

And let me express first

Mr Zuckerberg, not to be rude, but you should re-classify Facebook
to what it is:

An anti-social network

Cause while we may have big friend lists

So many of us are friendless, all alone

Cause friendships are more broken than the screens on our very phones

We sit at home on our computers measuring self worth by
numbers of followers and Likes

Ignoring those who actually love us

It seems we'd rather write an angry post

Than talk to someone who might actually hug us

Am I bugging? You tell me...

I asked a friend the other day lets meet up face to face

They said all right, what time you wanna Skype?

I responded with omg, srs, and then a bunch of smh's

And realized what about me?

Do I not have the patience to have conversation without
abbreviation?

This is the generation of media over stimulation

Chats have been reduced to snaps

The news is 140 characters

Videos are 6 seconds at high speed

And you wonder why ADD is on the rise faster than 4G LTE

But, get a load of this

Studies show the attention span of the average adult today

Is one second lower than that of a gold fish

.

So if, you're one of the few people or aquatic animals that have
yet to click off or close this video, congratulations.

Let me finish by saying you do have a choice, yes

But this one my friends we cannot Auto-Correct - we must do it
ourselves

Take control or be controlled, Make a decision

Me? 
No longer do I want to spoil a precious moment by recording it
with a phone

I'm just gonna keep them

I don't wanna take a picture of all my meals anymore -
I'm just gonna eat them

I don't want the new app, the new software, or the new update.

And If I wanna post an old photo of myself who says I have to wait
until Thursday

I'm so tired of performing in the pageantry of vanity

And conforming to this accepted form of digital insanity
.
Call me crazy but, I imagine a world where we
smile when we have low batteries

Cause that will mean we'll be one bar closer - to humanity.

Olle Johansson "Health effects of electromagnetic fields"

Olle Johansson at the Open Mind Conference 2014, Copenhagen.



"Health effects of electromagnetic fields" Olle Johansson is associate professor at the Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.  

"He is a leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He has also been a professor in basic and clinical neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

"He has published more than 650 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatoscience and health effects of electromagnetic fields.

"His studies have been widely recognised in the media, including newspapers, radio and TV, as well as on the Internet, both nationally and internationally. He has on-going international scientific collaborations with e.g. Japan, Brazil, South Africa, Serbia, Germany, the UK and the USA.

"Olle Johansson's presentation covers the historic background of electricity and electromagnetic fields, how suspicions arose early on concerning fields and signals producing negative health effects and how this led to today's global public discussion about the subject. It will also touch upon the functional impairment electro hypersensitivity.

"The lecture will go into depth about the scientific research results regarding the health effects of electromagnetic fields and the urgent need for independent research projects that need to be initiated to ensure our public health.

"These projects should be entirely independent of all types of commercial interests as public health cannot have a price-tag. This is the responsibility of the democratically elected body of every country.

"The body of evidence on EMF requires a new approach to protection of public health; the growth and development of the fetus, and of children; and argues for strong preventative actions. These conclusions are built upon prior scientific and public health reports documenting the following:

1) Low-intensity (non-thermal) bioeffects and adverse health effects are demonstrated at levels significantly below existing exposure standards.

2) ICNIRP and IEEE/FCC public safety limits are inadequate and obsolete with respect to prolonged, low-intensity exposures.

3) New, biologically-based public exposure standards are urgently needed to protect public health world-wide.

4) It is not in the public interest to wait.

Resonance - Beings of Frequency

(documentary film) by James Russell (Official)

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.

Acoustimeter Information

Instrument information and manual with technical specifications and EXAMPLE SOUND FILES

The Acoustimeter and Acousticom2 are made by Alasdair Philips of Powerwatch. This is their UK website: http://www.emfields-solutions.com/detectors/acousticom-2.asp

Another source for meters and other information in Canada is EMF Solutions.

The Acoustimeters are good basic meters that measure RF in the environment. They are not as accurate as more sophisticated meters used by reputable evaluation professionals.  

Acoustimeter   

The Acoustimeter is a versatile microwave detector. It presents RF measurements as an audio signal, with LEDs and accurate readings on an LCD screen. It also measures both the peak and average readings at the same time. It covers the spectrum from TETRA all the way up to and beyond the 5.6 GHz WiFi and WiMax frequencies, and is sensitive down to 0.02 V/m, making it a suitable instrument for those with severe electrosensitivity. 

Acousticom 2

The Acousticom 2 is the newest microwave detector. It presents RF measurements as an audio signal, with LEDs and an alarm at high levels of RF (you can also switch the sound off if you prefer to be less obvious when taking readings). With simple controls, easy to read results, but still using the same advanced microwave detector as our Acoustimeter, this instrument is perfect for those on a budget. It is smaller and lighter than the Acoustimeter, and comes in its own carry pouch.

WiFi in Schools: How Safe?

Public News Service

AUDIO LINK and TRANSCRIPT

" . . . Studies show links to fatigue, neurological disorders and cardiac irregularities, among other symptoms. . .

"In Rhode Island, high school math teacher Shelley McDonald says she has been warned her job is in danger if she continues to raise concern about Wi-Fi in her school.

"McDonald, of North Kingstown, says replacing wireless with hard-wired classrooms would be less expensive in the long run and would eliminate Wi-Fi RFR, which she says gave her daily headaches and insomnia.

"In school, I experienced the same symptoms that I experienced at home when I had a Wi-Fi router," she contends. "And since they installed the commercial-grade Wi-Fi routers - the wireless access points in all of our classrooms - it's become much, much more pronounced."

"McDonald says the school administration should at least alert teachers, students and parents to possible hazards. She points out the school administration does that when the school sprays the lawns for mosquitoes . . .
