TEDX - Margaret Heffernan (includes transcript)
" . . . What the research shows is that some people are blind out of fear. They're afraid of retaliation. And some people are blind because they think, well, seeing anything is just futile. Nothing's ever going to change. If we make a protest, if we protest against the Iraq War, nothing changes, so why bother? Better not to see this stuff at all. And the recurrent theme that I encounter all the time is people say,
"Well, you know, the people who do see, they're whistleblowers, and we all know what happens to them." So there's this profound mythology around whistleblowers which says, first of all, they're all crazy. But what I've found going around the world and talking to whistleblowers is, actually, they're very loyal and quite often very conservative people. They're hugely dedicated to the institutions that they work for, and the reason that they speak up, the reason they insist on seeing, is because they care so much about the institution and want to keep it healthy. . .
"Willful blindness is a legal concept which means, if there's information that you could know and you should know but you somehow manage not to know, the law deems that you're willfully blind. You have chosen not to know. . .
"We all enjoy so many freedoms today, hard-won freedoms: the freedom to write and publish without fear of censorship, a freedom that wasn't here the last time I came to Hungary; a freedom to vote, which women in particular had to fight so hard for; the freedom for people of different ethnicities and cultures and sexual orientation to live the way that they want. But freedom doesn't exist if you don't use it, and what whistleblowers do, and what people like Gayla Benefield do is they use the freedom that they have. And what they're very prepared to do is recognize that yes, this is going to be an argument, and yes I'm going to have a lot of rows with my neighbors and my colleagues and my friends, but I'm going to become very good at this conflict. I'm going to take on the naysayers, because they'll make my argument better and stronger. I can collaborate with my opponents to become better at what I do. These are people of immense persistence, incredible patience, and an absolute determination not to be blind and not to be silent.
"When I went to Libby, Montana, I visited the asbestosis clinic that Gayla Benefield brought into being, a place where at first some of the people who wanted help and needed medical attention went in the back door because they didn't want to acknowledge that she'd been right. I sat in a diner, and I watched as trucks drove up and down the highway, carting away the earth out of gardens and replacing it with fresh, uncontaminated soil.
"I took my 12-year-old daughter with me, because I really wanted her to meet Gayla.
"And she said, "Why? What's the big deal?"
"I said, "She's not a movie star, and she's not a celebrity, and she's not an expert, and Gayla's the first person who'd say she's not a saint. The really important thing about Gayla is she is ordinary. She's like you, and she's like me. She had freedom, and she was ready to use it."

"A whole generation may be very much at risk"
Dr. David Carpenter's remarks at the Children's Health Expert Panel, "Cell Phones and WiFi - Are Children, Fetuses and Fertility at Risk?", held at the La Grua Center in Stonington, CT in June 2013. ElectromagneticHealth.org and Environmental Health Trust co-sponsored this first U.S. public program on risks to children from radiation-emitting technologies. Dr. Carpenter is the Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at University at Albany/SUNY and former Dean of the School of Public Health. Joining Dr. Carpenter on this panel were Devra Davis, PhD, Martin Blank, PhD, Hugh Taylor, MD and Camilla Rees, MBA.

"There's a lot of consumer interest in these new gadgets - but also privacy concerns. Last week, Google bought Nest, a maker of smart thermostats and smoke detectors, for more than 3-Billion-dollars. Days before that, Google was found in violation of Canada's privacy laws. And its move to get a foothold in the smart gadget market caused an outcry in the tech world.

Interview with Cindy Sage about the Bioinitiative report on KPFA 94.1 FM Berkeley, California Radio January 14, 2014 @ 1PM
Is that a tumour or are you glad to see me?
Environmental consultant Cindy Sage, editor of both the Bioinitiative Report of 2007 and the new updated Bioinitiative Report of 2013 unpacks the results of over 1800 new studies showing harm to health from wireless technologies. Special attention is paid to the risks for children and developing fetus.
There is a 3 minute 30 second intro to this interview that provides background information.
The Fifth Estate CBC- January 10, 2014 (Season 35 Episode 10)
"With massive cuts by Ottawa to everything from food inspections to water quality and climate change and the dismissal of more than 2,000 federal scientists and researchers, some scientists have become unlikely radicals -- denouncing what they call a politically-driven war on knowledge.
"In Silence of the Labs, Linden MacIntyre tells their story - and what is at stake for Canadians - from Nova Scotia to the B.C. Pacific Coast and the far Arctic Circle."
Increasingly, the Harper Government = the destruction of the Canadian health we once enjoyed. Will Canadians realize it, and remember when the next federal election rolls along?

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.
