Arbeitslosigkeit: Kein Beschäftigungswunder durch Minijobs in Sicht

Die von der Bundesknappschaft im Juni 2003 erstmals identifizierten 6,4 Millionen Minijobs bestanden vermutlich zum größten Teil bereits vorher als kleine Beschäftigungsverhältnisse am Rande des Arbeitsmarktes, so der aktuelle Wochenbericht 34/2004 des DIW Berlin. Der seither registrierte Zuwachs könne somit zum erheblichen Teil auf Substitution aus bisheriger Beschäftigung zurückgeführt werden. Mehr Arbeitsplätze wurden jedoch nicht geschaffen...

EXTREME EMF RADIATION LEVELS THREATEN CHILDREN

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ATTN: OP-ED EDITOR

August 16, 2004

Contact: George H. Russell 936-891-5245 or 936-295-5767

EXTREME EMF RADIATION LEVELS THREATEN CHILDREN

Huntsville, Texas, known worldwide as "The City of Death" because of its reputation as the "Death Capital of the Free World" and thus a callous disregard for human life, is also known for the callous disregard by public school and university authorities for the health and welfare of its children and young adults.

Exposure to high levels of EMF's (electromagnetic fields) is suspected to cause a statistically significant increase in childhood leukemia and other diseases, and consequently conservative child health and welfare activists have recommended a "prudent avoidance" level of as low as 0.2 milligauss.

In fact, concern was so great in Houston, Texas, that in 1985, parents brought a lawsuit against Houston Lighting and Power because of what they called a "callous disregard" for their children's health for siting a high voltage line within 200 feet of a school and playground. The court ordered HL&P to not only relocate the line at great expense but to pay $25 million dollars in punitive damages as well.

In Huntsville, however, the "callous disregard" comes in the form of an unconcerned administration at Sam Houston State University and an unconcerned Huntsville Independent School District, where children and young adults are exposed to constant EMF levels of up to 35 milligauss, which is 17,500% higher than the conservatively "prudent" safety level of 0.2 milligauss, and 875% higher than the scientifically proven cancer risk threshold of 4 milligauss.

HISD officials have even built a new playground directly underneath a 138 kv power line that runs through a school yard. Levels of up to 14 milligauss were detected next to the playground equipment. Because of the alignment of the school building itself, dangerous levels were detected adjacent to at least one classroom.

Sam Houston State University officials allowed the construction of a 138 kv power line as well as a distribution line within a few feet of rooms in a girl's dormitory. Readings of between 30 and 35 milligauss were taken in one upstairs corner room at the window and between 15 and 18 milligauss at the far wall of the room.

University officials have been advised of the danger on numerous occasions, yet refuse to take action to limit dangerous EMF exposure levels or to at least advise students and their families of the high levels so that individual decisions could be made about whether to avoid the risk of living with constant high exposure or living elsewhere.

The university is in the process of completing a new $15 million dollar dormitory that is adjacent to the same 138 kv power line and where EMF levels are certain to exceed prudently safe levels by thousands of percent.

Both the editor and publisher of the "Huntsville Item" refuse to cover the story citing that there is no firm scientific proof that EMF's at any level should be a matter of concern. Their argument is as specious as the argument that it has never been proven that smoking can lead to lung cancer.

A genuine journalist would at least examine both sides of the argument in an objective fashion so that citizens could make up their own minds about whether or not it is in the best interests of children to be exposed to levels of EMF's that indicate an increased risk of contracting leukemia as well as other serious life-threatening negative health consequences, including brain cancer, depression, suicide, breast cancer, and miscarriage.

The "Item", unfortunately, has an unspoken policy of being anti-public health, anti-environment, pro-death penalty, pro-war, and anti-objective reporting as reflected in the nature and bias of the stories and editorials that are consistently selected for publication.

It is recommended that parents, teachers, and concerned citizens investigate the EMF levels that they and their children are being exposed to, study the evidence as currently being investigated by scientists, and thus be able to make up their own minds based on their understanding of the issue and act accordingly.

Secretive exposure of children to potentially hazardous EMF levels should not be left up to the blatantly "callous disregard" of either school officials or newspaper publishers who refuse to even alert the public to the existence of high voltage power line exposure on school grounds and college campuses.

NEWS: BUSH PLAN TO "SHRINK" USA IS OPPOSED

PATCH ADAMS OFFERS TO SCREEN PRESIDENT

President Bush announced that every man, woman and child in the USA will be screened for "mental illness" in a plan that was created by the psychiatric drug industry, said the internationally prestigious _British Medical Journal_.

MindFreedom International, a coalition of 100 groups working for human rights in mental health, opposes the Bush plan. They ask that President Bush be screened first. The famous physician Patch Adams says, "I'll screen him for free. He needs a lot of help."

MINDFREEDOM STARTS NEW "WEB NODE" TO RESIST BUSH PLAN with the latest news, media articles and reports about the growing controversy.

Go to http://wwww.MindFreedom.org to find this news:

** A MindFreedom News Release that calls for a symbolic screening of President Bush first by Patch Adams.

** A new "Frequently Asked Questions" page explains the role of the psychiatric drug corporations in creating the "Texas Medication Algorithm Project," and how whistleblowers Allen Jones and psychiatrist Stefan Kruszewski broke the silence, lost their jobs and are suing government officials.

** Links to _British Medical Journal_ articles by Jeanne Lenzer that concisely expose Bush administration corruption and links to psychiatric drug companies.

** Plus links to other media articles, background about President Bush's psychiatrist Sally Satel who is calling for much more forced psychiatric drugging, and more.


ACT NOW: Please forward this news alert.

Ask your elected leaders to investigate psychiatric drug company corruption inside your government.

ALSO, WHAT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY?

What will do you if or when the mental health screeners come for *you* and *your* loved ones?

If Bush plans to screen the entire population for mental health problems.... Don't you think it's time you joined MindFreedom International? All for one and one for all.

MindFreedom International is creating a "MindFreedom Shield" program to help defend members from threats of coercive psychiatry by issuing alerts. Watch for more news soon.

MindFreedom is totally independent, and not connected to any government, mental health provider, church or drug company.

The majority of MindFreedom members have personally experienced coerced psychiatric procedures, but membership is open to everyone who supports human rights in mental health and includes advocates, professionals and family members.

Save the Ludlow Tuart Forest

FIGHTING UNTIL THE END IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Protesters trying to save the Ludlow tuart forest, near Busselton in south-west Western Australia, have threatened to chain themselves to their tree-top platforms if police try to remove them. The protesters are asking for some of the conservationists to be allowed to remain in their tree-top. Yesterday, residents of the Tuart Rescue Camp were given 24 hours to move - an impossible task given the size of the camp. The deadline for the protesters to leave site passed without incident earlier today. Dozens of police, including a mounted section, are on stand-by and say force will be used as a last resort if talks fail. A spokeswoman from the Forest Products Commission says they are to start harvesting pine trees in the area tomorrow.

The Wilderness Society's Keith Wood says the group will fight until the bitter end. "What we're really looking for is an up swell of community support," he said. "The more people that get involved, the more passionate people get, the more we can do."

Agriculture Minister Kim Chance recently approved titanium mining company Cable Sands' Tuart Preservation Plan.

Friends of the Tuart Forest spokesperson Martin Pritchard says "The plan confirms our fears there are unacceptable risks involved with the logging of 1200 tuart trees. The cutting down of the huge old tuarts will have a devastating effect on the native animals, with many expected not to survive the felling of the trees. Cable Sands intends to mine within 4m of the mature trees and 10m of the senescent trees. We question whether these trees will survive soil disturbance close to intruding on their root systems."

Camp occupant Brian Green said recently that each individual at the camp had their own idea as to what they were willing to do to slow down Cable Sands as much as possible "Some are prepared to be arrested while others go one step further, putting their bodies on the line to hinder progress," said Green. "Often it gets very technical and people take different levels of risk but damage to machinery or violence will not be supported by the group as a whole." Green said that different methods to hinder tree clearing ranged from locking on to trees at the base or staying in the trees to more intricate measures which could often become dangerous. Green said 'Dragons' were commonly used to hinder progress and included devices used to secure protesters to a certain spot. One method is to immerse an arm or leg into a buried concrete structure which, once set, requires a jack hammer to free the protester," he said. The ingenuity comes when a protester who is secured is also linked by a rope to others in a tree structure which will fall if the sole protestor is moved."

Tuarts are endemic to Western Australia (WA) and specifically the Swan Coastal Plain, occurring from Jurien Bay to Busselton. The extent of tuarts falls into six distinct tuart ecosystems, of which four are considered rare due to their limited range and size. One of these rare tuart ecosystems is the Ludlow Tall Tuart Forest: what makes this ecosystem particularly special is that tuart trees grow taller then anywhere else in the state.

The Ludlow Tuart Forest is the only remaining Tall Tuart Forest in the world and is therefore one of the rarest ecosystems left on earth. 1955 hectares are left in the South West of Western Australia and Cable Sands have put forward a proposal to mine 147 hectares right in the middle of it. The reason - titanium. It is not surprising that the proposal has attracted opposition from a variety of groups and community members.

The area is habitat for a number of rare and endangered and vulnerable species including the endangered Carnaby's Black Cockatoo, the Chuditch, Brush-tailed Phascogale, Western Ring-tailed Possum, Brush Wallaby and contains 1739 Tuart trees and their associated eco-systems.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Authority) has admitted that any attempt to rehabilitate the area may not result in the return of its present values such as tall Tuart trees growing to a great 500 year old age.

In their submissions to the EPA the Conservation Commission of WA, CALM, WA Institute of Foresters, Shire of Busselton, Cape Naturaliste Tourism Association, and the Conservation Council of WA have all opposed mining in the Ludlow Tall Tuart Forest.

Cable Sands claims they can restore this ecosystem (post mining) to "a condition better than currently exists." However there is no evidence in WA that Cable Sands is capable of restoring an ecosystem. What limited experience Cable Sands does have, has demonstrated that it is difficult to regrow tuarts on mined soils that are similar to those of the Ludlow Tall Tuart Forest. Further, the oldest tuart trees that Cable Sands have attempted to revegetate are only 15 years old and far from representing a Tall Tuart Forest.

In 1903 there were only 40500 ha of tuart forest ecosystems remaining in the South West of WA. The area was singled out for urgent conservation by the Royal Commission, after significant depletion of naturally occurring forest was cited (down some 89500 ha: from 130 000 ha in 1882 recorded in the first official survey of WA forests, to 40500 ha to 1903: a span of just 21 years) as a result of Tuarts' attractive timber properties as a hardwood.

Recommendations made to the WA Government in 1904 stated that: "All countries seem now to realize the importance of stopping the reckless waste of the past and making provision for the future…
The longer it is delayed, the more difficult the task."

Government plans for compulsory identity cards have been criticised by Britain's information watchdog.

He singled out David Blunkett's plans for ID cards and separate proposals to set up a population register and a database of every child under 18. Mr Thomas compared the expansion of Government information gathering to the snooping of the secret police in former Soviet bloc countries...

In These Times

08/17/04

Shortly before he died in 1918, the American critic Randolph Bourne penned an incendiary essay laying bare the monstrous duplicity at the heart of Woodrow Wilson's foreign policy. We know Wilson from school history as the champion of national self-determination. Bourne regarded such high-minded talk as a hollow ruse. History will record, he wrote, that 'when the American nation had ostensibly a chance to conduct a gallant war, with scrupulous regard to the safety of democratic values at home, it chose rather to adopt all the most obnoxious and coercive techniques of the enemy and of the other countries at war, and to rival in intimidation and ferocity of punishment the worst governmental systems of the age.' The essay, which Bourne never finished, is remembered for a pithy aphorism, 'War is the health of the state.' This slogan has lately taken on a discomfiting resonance...

The chaotic reality Bush faces in Iraq

by Thomas Oliphant

Boston Globe

08/17/04

With inadequate notice, the absurd linkage invented by President Bush to join 'war in Iraq' with 'war on terror' has fractured, raising the question not only whether anyone in his administration can explain what is going on but also whether anyone can explain what the United States is doing in Iraq.

The siege of Najaf and its sacred Shi'ite sites is hardly a military challenge. The Army and Marine units there can obviously crush all opposition and occupy the city whenever commanders choose. Instead, the siege is a political challenge that in the short run greatly increases the risk of more US combat deaths as commanders try to discern which masters they are serving, even as it calls into question the purpose of what remains a de facto occupation that is open-ended in terms of cost and duration...

Nuked In Your Kitchen

PREFACE DESCRIPTION

Our addiction to appliances unheard of only a few decades ago is unleashing epidemic of cancers, brain damage and immune dysfunction that threatens to cripple or kill the “best and the brightest” among technologically advanced and emerging nations. Russian researchers have found decreased nutritional value, cancer-making compounds and brain damaging radiolytics in virtually all microwaved foods. Eating microwaved meals can also cause loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decline in intelligence. The solution is to avoid microwave ovens and microwaved foods.

Nuked In Your Kitchen

by William Thomas

Our culture of convenience is killing us. The electrochemical exchanges that enable cells to function and communicate in human brains and bodies are so subtle, and so delicately attuned to Earth’s own quietly humming electromagnetics, threatens to drown the very signals on which all life depends. And there is nothing convenient about cancer.

Exposing your three million year-old hominid self to energy levels never before encountered in primate evolution is a spectacularly bad idea. It turns out that the microwaves messing up your cells from your aptly named “cell phone”, neighborhood cell phone tower, or newly acquired long-range cordless phone are radiating at the same 2.45 Gigahertz frequency emitted by your microwave oven.

Eating over-energized food “zapped” in a microwave imparts that energy to the human nervous system. The resulting stress causes a high blood pressure response, with such characteristic symptoms as migraines, dizziness, stomach pain and anxiety.

Russian researchers have found that regularly consuming food “nuked” in Nazi-invented microwave ovens also leads to memory loss and attention disorders - as well as increased crankiness, depression, disconnected thoughts and sleep interruption.

Reporting clinical findings from Novosibirsk in 1975, IR Luria sealed the fate of microwave ovens throughout Mother Russia the following year when he noted how.

“These effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system.

Reporting for AREC Research, William P. Kopp now states: “The effects of microwaved food by-products are long term, permanent within the human body. Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.”

The excellent news is that prudent prevention is as close as saying, “nyet” to microwaved foods. While eating a microwaved meal on extremely rare occasions will probably do less harm than stressing out about it, using a microwave oven for much or most of your home cooking is a ticket to trouble. I prefer to stand back and activate my toaster oven instead. The time for electromagnetic emancipation is right now...

How Bush Broke the Law

Extremely IMPORTANT - Hear Audio Explanation how Bush Broke the Law

And should and probably will be impeached and charged with War
Crimes, because he violated the Iraq Resolution from Congress giving him the right to invade Iraq - but only under certain very strict circumstances that he was required to meet before or at the latest 48 hours after beginning an Invasion. That he did not meet ? !

This voice you will hear is the world famous (well almost) Randi Rhodes on the Air America Radio Network (list of current stations
below). Broadcasting on Monday Aug. 16 on 21 Air America Stations Nation wide.

The audio is 9 minutes long and is self explanatory, it is a 9 minute segment of her Monday Aug. 16 show and does require listening to all of it (maybe twice ?) to get the complete picture, the first minute is somewhat confusing until you hear the rest of the recording.

Please listen to this as soon as possible, because I am not sure how long this link will be active, and also record this audio and pass the audio and this audio link along to everyone possible !

This broadcast (like the Water Gate Caper) could be the determining factor getting the Bush Regime out of the White House !
