REFORM US POLICY AND STOP TORTURE

Amnesty International has appealed to President Bush to make the eradication of torture and ill-treatment by US agents, as well as the USA's full compliance with international law and standards for the treatment and trial of detainees, a hallmark of his second term in office. The appeal was sent to coincide with the President's inauguration.

US detention and interrogation policies in the aftermath of September 11 have flouted hard-won principles of human rights. Individual detainees and their families, the rule of law and the reputation of the USA have suffered. Further, US policy and practice have set a bad example for those governments looking for justification to employ their own repressive conduct.

You certainly know by now that here in Belgium they were obliged by law to lower the field strength of the mobile base stations.

The maximun output has to be now 0.614 Volts/m !

I have measured them up and they have lowered the output power !

Why lowered they the output power if the radiation is not dangerous as they pretend?

Play area unsuitable for phone mast plan

A MOBILE phone company has been refused planning permission to erect a phone mast next to a children's play area.

Hutchinson 3G wanted to erect the 12m mast, with its three-metre dish, in the car park of the Plough Inn at Mountsett in Dipton.

But Derwentside District Council's development control committee said the potential impact on health was uncertain and refused the application.

Committee chairman Eric Turner said: "Health concerns were the crux of the matter for the refusal of this application.

"It would be fine if we could put them in isolated areas but that will not always work because they need to be strategically placed to provide coverage."

As well as health concerns, councillors considered that the mast would detract from the area of outstanding natural beauty.

In the one letter of protest, neighbours raised worries about the impact the mast would have on wildlife as well its impact on local views.

People also questioned whether it would be safe as the area is prone to high winds.

The committee rejected the advice of senior planning officer Simon le Jeune, who recommended that the application be approved.

He said: "The site at the Plough Inn was selected because out of all the sites considered it was the most optimal environmental and network solution.

"The operator has a lack of coverage in this area and it is clear that the location of a new slim monopole mast in this location would be the most appropriate to meet their operational needs."

Phone mast wipes £50,000 off house value

Elizabeth Hopkirk, Evening Standard

21 January 2005

A WOMAN told today how a mobile phone mast has wiped £50,000 off the value of her house.

Jennifer Redman had her property valued at the start of December at between £430,000 and £440,000. Three weeks later the mast was put up on a telephone pole almost on her doorstep.

Her estate agent in the Buckinghamshire town of Marlow, immediately reduced the valuation to between £380,000 and £390,000 - a drop of more than 10%. 'I was shocked,' said Mrs Redman, who has lived in the four-bedroom house for 30 years.

'I had been thinking for some time about moving somewhere smaller because the children have left home. But I can't afford to now because I won't be able to find anything I like for £380,000. Prices in Marlow are very high.

'I had been hoping to release some capital to give to my children, but I can't now. I'm stuck. My neighbours are horrified too. One couple only moved in six months ago and they've got two small children. They wouldn't have bought the house if they'd known.'

Now she and other furious residents are consulting lawyers to see if they can have the mast, which is also close to two schools, removed.

'We had around 200 signatures on a petition but the district council have taken no notice. It makes me angry that they have overridden everyone's objections,' said Mrs Redman, 67.

The letter from Hamptons International estate agency said: 'I regret to inform you that due to the erection of the mobile phone mast and its proximity-to your property, we will need to revise the asking price of your property to around £380,000-£390,000. Our experience shows that mobile phone masts have an adverse effect on potential purchasers.'

The main concerns over mobile phone masts are their appearance and suspected health risks. Many people believe the masts are responsible for headaches and dizziness and even - in the long term - cancer. Fears for children's health are particularly serious.

David Adams, sales director at Hamptons International, said: 'There are two ways mobile phone masts affect property prices - by being close to one and actually looking out over it. In this case it's both, so it's a double whammy.'

A spokesman for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors said there was no way of calculating the exact effect of a phone mast on property prices. 'You have to treat it as any other kind of blight, like being next to a smelly glue factory, a noisy garage, a cliff, a wind farm or something really ugly,' he said.

T-Mobile did not need planning permission for the mast because it is classified as street furniture. It applied to the council for permission to erect the mast on the lamp-post and paid a one-off administration fee. It does not pay rent for the site.

A T-Mobile spokesman said: 'No community is untouched by the impact of the infrastructure needed to deliver the public services modern society depends upon, whether it is roads, railways, telecommunications, radio, television or electricity.

'However, T-Mobile has a firm commitment to the environment and we work hard to minimise the visual impact of our base stations.'

Councillor Roy Pennington accuses phone mast campaigners of "scaremongering"

I've modified Jennifers excellent piece on Adam Burgess as a response to Roy Penningtons irresponsible letter to The Argus commending him (hope you don't mind Jennifer) and copied it below. If anyone is thinking of sending a letter to The Argus, do check your letter doesn't sound like similar to mine and try to keep it to below 250 wwords (though I couldn't).

Regards,

Graham, Brighton


Councillor Roy Pennington (Argus Jan 21) accuses phone mast campaigners of "scaremongering" and advises people to read Dr Adam Burgess's work which denies that they are harmful.

Sir William Stewart, the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor and head of the National Radiological Protection Board, has renewed his call for a ban on children under 8 using mobiles, and for 9 to 14 year olds to only use them in emergencies. Several countries have already banned their use by the under 16s. He is concerned that scientific research from around the world shows evidence of serious harm from radiation from mobile phones and masts well below the current International Commission on Non Ionising Radiation Protection guidelines. He recommends new planning laws to protect the health and safety of the public, and that masts should not be placed near schools.

Unable to argue the real science, the best the Telecom companies can do is call on the services of shrinks and the likes of sociologist Adam Burgess, to subtly imply that Sir William Stewart is psychologically ill equipped for his job. The feeling one gets is that the British public are mentally unhinged if they take seriously the precautionary approach advised by Stewart. “It’s all inconsequential,” the ubiquitous Dr Burgess states.

As he does his many interviews, spinning some outrageous propaganda for the telecom companies and hyping his silly book, his "throw caution to the wind’ attitude with regard to the health and safety of children is criminally irresponsible.

When Mast Sanity member Jennifer Johnson raised this point in a phone-in with Dr Burgess, all he could do was laugh. When it comes down to the real argument, people like this simply aren’t up to the job. However, why point out their failings? The national organisation Mast Sanity is now gaining huge momentum, and it's very much to our advantage to have people like Dr Burgess batting for the other side.

It is truly shocking and criminal that anyone should advocate such dangerous nonsense as ignoring the precautionary principle with regard to children and to send out a message which could have such serious consequences. Of course we all hope that the worst case scenario doesn’t happen. But we can’t guarantee that it won’t, anymore than we can guarantee that it will. Right now the evidence of harm to health is mounting alarmingly.

The least we can do for the sake of the next generation, is guard against the possibility – and those who say this is the action of fools and fanatics, have obviously not learned the lessons of history. Or perhaps it has nothing to do with ignorance – and everything to do with greed, self interest and an utter lack of morality.

Graham Parfitt,
Florence Road
Brighton.

NEW MEANING

As an antidote to the scaremongering of the two letters on the risk of cell phones and masts (Letters, Jan 17), try reading Dr Burgess's Cellular phones, Public Fears And A Culture Of Precaution (2004).

It is a sober reflection on the history of mainly media-driven health panics which gives "crying wolf" and "once bitten twice shy" whole new meanings.

Public workers 'concerned' by phone mast siting

THE CENTRAL Statistics Office in Dublin's Rathmines is set to become the latest site for a mobile phone mast as part of the Government's plan to generate €10m a year from the practice.

However, staff at the centre have expressed serious concern at the decision, particularly as a recent report in Britain urged more caution in the siting of such masts.

A spokesman for the Office of Public Works confirmed yesterday that the Central Statistics Office is one of 12 additional State-owned sites where a mast is proposed to be erected. The sites are spread around the country and follow similar masts placed on over 100 garda stations, as well as three other public buildings in Dublin and Cork.

Staff at the Central Statistics Office are angry they have been chosen as a site and point out there are already masts on Cathal Brugha army barracks nearby.

Eoin Roynane of the Civil and Public Service Union confirmed yesterday that the concerns of members are increasing. He said the group of unions representing public servants had raised it at a general council meeting with the Department of Finance last month.

Staff are now demanding adequate consultation on the proposals and insist there must be more attention given to their fears for their health.

The State coffers expect to be richer by about €100m at the end of the next 10 years as a result of the income they receive from mobile phone companies for the masts.

Communications Minister Noel Dempsey said the Stewart report of
2000 recommended that beams of greatest intensity should not fall on any part of school grounds.

There are a number of schools in Rathmines.

"The UK Court of Appeal decision of November 12, 2004, that mobile phone masts do not pose a risk to public health that would justify a ban on positioning them near schools was made following consideration of the evidence since the publication of the Stewart report," he said. The minister added: "My officials maintain a watching brief on all of the evidence presented each year on this issue, and Ireland participates in the relevant international bodies which monitor this work and set limits on electromagnetic emissions to protect the public."

THIS is WHY GARY WEBB was MURDERED

http://twoday.net/static/omega/files/gary_webb_was_assassinated.htm


GARY WEBB MUDER AND WHY

This is 100% factually correct and I really don't care who does not want to hear or know this...Gary Webb was murdered because of his coverage of the CIA crack importation and because the Feds and Cops are planning a major drug bust in the near future and it is also regarding several homicides including the long overdue arrest of BRADFORD BISHOP for the heinous murders of his entire family and the rearrest and trial of a man named JOHN ANDERSON up in Warren, Pa from a case that dates back to 1975 in which " a bunch of guys took turns shooting another guy" and two of the five people involved in that murder have recently been located and there are more.

But Gary Webb would have likely been reinterviewed and any notes or info he may have had could have exposed some people that would rather not be exposed.

I know this first hand belive me. If anyone is interested to know if what I say above about Ring Leader John Anderson was and is true simply call the clerk of Criminal Court in Warren, Pa and ask to get a copy of the case against John Anderson, first degree murder,1975 and they will tell you that you cannot get anything on that case AS IT HAS BEEN SEALED ALL OF THESE YEARS.

Blood on the Altar: *
*The Secret History of the World's Most Dangerous Secret Society*

What's Beyond Freemasonry? That's the question investigators have pondered for decades and Craig Heimbichner furnishes fascinating answers as he probes deeply into the sooty arcana of the Ordo Templi Orientis--or "OTO"--the higher secret society to which elite Freemasons emigrate as part of a process of occult succession.

Blood on the Altar pursues the shape-shifting trail of this successor group--on the Left as the pillar of a libertarian ethos, avant-garde drug culture and radical hedonism; on the Right, as the pillar of aristocratic preference for authoritarian rule. Heimbichner deconstructs not just a Janus-faced secret society but a method of operation so deceptive, the reader can hardly believe that such audacious and far-flung duplicity and misdirection could possibly succeed for so long without exposure. The head-spinning trail of the OTO leads from the U.S. government to the NASA rocket program, from the Hollywood film industry to Right-wing "patriot" groups, from the New Age craze for the Kabbalah, to an attempt to control the conservative enthusiasm for traditional liturgy. The OTO has marched from triumph after triumph, as the spectre of its "Great Beast," British Intelligence officer Aleister Crowley, cast its Thelemi spell over a double-minded populace alternately seeking freedom-and-contraint, sex-and-repression, magick-and-Christendom, science-and-superstition. "Blood on the Altar" shows the OTO to be the signature secret society behind the most dazzling--and puzzling--charades of the modern Cryptocracy. Paperback. 170 pages.

How disgusting! U.S. soldiers are not trained to speak to the Iraqi people but are now being trained to promote a false image of the U.S. occupation. With bad news coming out of Iraq daily, pointing to the criminal nature of the U.S. occupation, this development should be viewed as a further show of weakness.

Scientists witness hundreds of cracks in the sea ice

Car demolition derbies last minutes, but when it comes to a giant iceberg near Antarctica it takes a bit longer. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Terra and Aqua satellites captured images of iceberg B-15A steaming a steady course towards the extended Drygalski Ice Tongue and scientists expected the Long Island, NY sized berg to initiate a colossal collision by January 15. Instead B15A appears to have grounded on a submarine shoal when it was just 2.5 miles from the glacier. Continued observations of the area on the eve of what is expected to be renewed iceberg movements have shown a sudden break up sea ice around the iceberg.

31. Januar ist Widerspruchstag

Die Regierung behauptet, die Einführung von Alg II sei erfolgreich verlaufen, alles sei reibungslos über die Bühne gegangen und die Fehler zu Lasten der LeistungsbezieherInnen hielten sich in Grenzen.

Alle, die jetzt bis über die Ohren in der Beratungsarbeit stecken und sich vor Anfragen kaum retten können, haben da ganz andere Erfahrungen gemacht: Ein Großteil der Bescheide ist schlichtweg falsch, es herrscht Chaos und große Unwissenheit in den "Jobcentern" und Agenturen und viele haben selbst Mitte Januar noch kein Geld auf dem Konto.

Das Problem ist, dass die Betroffenen es oft gar nicht merken, wenn ihnen Leistungen vorenthalten werden. Die Bescheide sind kaum lesbar und die Einzelberechnungen sind selbst für Fachleute kaum nachvollziehbar.

Deshalb schlagen wir vor, in der kommenden Woche in/vor möglichst vielen Ämtern/Agenturen unter dem Motto "31. Januar ist Widerspruchstag" aktive Widerspruchsberatung zu machen, auf mögliche Fehler hinzuweisen und Betroffene zum Widerspruch anzuregen.

Flankiert werden sollte die Aktion mit dem Verteilen von Infoflugblättern und die wichtigsten Musterwidersprüche sollten zum Ausfüllen bereitgehalten werden.

Agentur weist Berichte über Fehler bei ALG-II-Bescheide zurück

"Die Bundesagentur für Arbeit hat Berichte über eine bis zu 90-prozentige Fehlerquote bei den Bescheiden zum Arbeitslosengeld II zurückgewiesen. Entsprechende Angaben von Arbeitslosen- und Sozialhilfeinitiativen entbehrten jeder Grundlage, sagte BA-Sprecher Ulrich Waschki der dpa.

Das zeige auch die niedrige Zahl an Widersprüchen, die zum Jahresanfang bei 75000 gelegen habe…." dpa-Meldung vom 22.1.05

Dense Contrails

I'm a commercial pilot and have been flying for over 12 years now. Throughout my years as a commercial pilot I have captured some amazing photos of aircrafts flying at 30,000 feet or higher, producing contrails or just cruising by.

I can tell you for sure that I have been seeing denser contrails then the normal engine vapor that aircraft's normally produce at high altitudes. I thought I'd share some of my many photos (taken with a Nikon D100).

Tens of thousands protest the Inauguration of George W. Bush

Thousands take to the streets to oppose the inauguration of George W. Bush

Next: March 19 Central Park - Troops Out Now!

Tens of thousands protest the Inauguration of George W. Bush

Thousands took to the streets of Washington, DC to protest the inauguration of George W. Bush. The International Action Center organized contingents from New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit, Raleigh, and many other cities to participate in the demonstrations, hand out literature, and distribute placards.

Thousands of people turned out to line the inaugural parade route, despite attempts by the Bush Administration to prohibit protesters from being present. For months, the Bush Administration had been fighting to stage manage the inauguration and present the facade of a united front in support of the Bush agenda of global war, corporate greed, and repression. The ANSWER Coalition won a significant legal victory and obtained a permit to assemble directly on the parade route. As a result, thousands of protesters were able to gather at a rally near the beginning of the parade route and many more lined up all along the parade route. As Bush rode down Pennsylvania Avenue, he was confronted by protesters holding signs all along the route, many of which said "George Bush: Guilty of War Crimes."

Unfortunately, many thousands more were stopped at "security checkpoints," set up by the Bush Administration in an attempt to minimize the impact and visibility of the protests. However, the people engaged in spontaneous protest at the check points, chanting, "George Bush - Terrorist," and holding anti-war placards and banners.

In addition, thousands marched through the streets of Washington DC, beginning at Malcolm X Park. This loud and spirited demonstration, consisting largely of youth, was organized by the DC Antiwar Network.

Militant youth, including members of FIST (Fight Imperialism-Stand Together), participated in breakaway marches despite police brutality, which included the use of pepper spray, tasers, and clubs. One group of youth eventually challenged the Bush Administration's tactics by directly confronting the police at the massive fences erected to keep protesters off of the parade route under the pretense of security.

Many demonstrators at both locations carried signs distributed by the Troops Out Now Coalition that said "Troops Out Now - March 19 - Central Park!" and "End the Occupation Now - Iraq, Palestine, & Everywhere."

Bush's Speech--a declaration of war on the world

His speech was an unabashedly aggressive pro-war threat on the entire globe. His call to empire, veiled in words like "freedom" and "liberty," delivered in what some described in an "evangelical" or "messianic" tone, asserted his divine right to intervene anywhere, anytime. It did not mention any country by name--it was instead, an open declaration of domination and endless war--a campaign to globalize Abu-Ghraib.

The speech was seen around the globe as an ominous beginning for Bush's second term. The British daily The Guardian summed up world-wide concern in an editorial under the headline "Fireworks in Washington, despair around the world."

Bush's Inaugural address makes it clear, now more than ever, that we have to continue to organize a unified mass movement to struggle for justice. In his twenty-one minute speech, he did not once mention the millions of people who have lost their jobs under his Administration. He did not mention the tens of millions who are without healthcare. He made no promise to address the crises in education, housing, or AIDS. He did not mention Iraq once, even though 100,000 Iraqi people and nearly 1400 U.S. troops have died because of his colonial war. He did not mention any social programs, except for social security, which he plans to turn over to be looted by his corporate backers.

It is clear that the antiwar movement in the US has a unique responsibility to confront and stop this drive for global empire. Unity among all antiwar and progressive forces is now more important than ever.

Next Step: March 19 - Central Park, and across the globe

The weekend of March 19-20 is the second anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. "shock and awe" attack on Iraq. Antiwar and progressive organizations worldwide have called for protests on this weekend.

In the U.S., the Troops Out Now coalition has called for a massive regional march on Central Park on March 19 to demand the immediate, complete, and unconditional withdrawal of all US troops from Iraq.

A few months ago, Mayor Bloomberg, the NYPD, and Bush told us that we could not march to and rally in Central Park. We do not accept this decision and are determined to challenge it by assembling tens of thousands of people to retake Central Park --our Park. The antiwar movement cannot afford, and must never again agree to, this infringement on our rights, especially in a city as important as NYC.

In addition, there will be local and regional demonstrations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington DC, and throughout the country. There will also be a major regional demonstration in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Fayetteville is home to Fort Bragg, which is the home base for the 82nd Airborne Division and many of the Army's elite units. For more information on this rally, see: http://www.mfso.org .

OK Folks:

We have a new member of our research team, from Russia, by the name of Sorcha Faal, who has just issued this warning about possible "earth changes" that will occur along our east coastline. We will all be watching to see what transpires. Thanks Sorcha. If there are lives that will be saved from your warning, please know that we will be eternally grateful.

New, And Ominous Warnings Being Given to the Americas

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

As the world continues to reel today from a seeming to be never ending series of global chaotic events, more ominous signs of imminent cataclysmic events are continuing to occur.

Reports have been received today that another warning sign from the whales has now been delivered to the doorsteps of the Americas with the beaching of a large pod of "at least 17" whales in the North Carolina Region of the United States. Another media report says about this event, "More than 30 pilot whales beached themselves on the coast early Saturday, and at least 15 of them died, officials said."

Prior warnings to the Great Tsunami of 2004 were given by the whales to the peoples of the Indian Ocean region, and where in this news report we can read, "In late November a pod of 53 pilot whales beached themselves at Maria Island less than a day after 97 pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins died on King Island."

Western people continue to be in much amazement with animal warnings, and especially with the news reports from the Indian Ocean region where, it is acknowledged, "Wildlife officials have found no evidence of large-scale animal mortality, instead there was evidence of life - wild and free. Along the Cuddalore coast, where thousands perished, cattle, dogs and other domestic animals survived.", as detailed in this one report titled, "Animal Instincts Can Save" from India.

Omega see under http://sify.com/news/fullstory.php?id=13645377

Animal instincts are so linked to each other, and human beings, and to such a strong extent, that among the hundreds of reports received from the devastated regions we can see that even the elephants worked to save themselves, and also human beings, from mass death. "Agitated elephants felt the tsunami coming, and their sensitivity saved about a dozen foreign tourists from the fate of thousands killed by the giant waves." It was reported by media sources from New Zealand.

A Review of Presidents Inaugural Address

Bush's Words On Liberty Don't Mesh With Policies

For the Record: Bush's Words On Liberty Don't Mesh With Policies

Buried on page A25 is an article that points out the facts: President George Bush may speak of promoting freedom, yet he provides tremendous military and financial support to some of the world's most brutal and murderous dictatorships. The nations include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Uzbekistan, and Pakistan, a country that widely distributed technology needed to construct and nuclear weapons.

'Be Prepared - Don't let the upcoming financial crisis serve as 9-11 did to push the Bush Agenda'

http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/BePrepared.htm

by madis senner, CPA, ex Global Money Manager About me
http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/aboutus.html

"The joke circulating Wall Street during the 1988 presidential campaign was a call to vote for the candidate you liked the least because the winner would be the loser. It was said that within days after Reagan left the White House the deficit would explode sending the dollar and the financial markets tumbling. The newly elected President would take the blame and his party would be in the doghouse for decades to come; so vote for the candidate and party that you want to be in the doghouse."

Could it be that that Wall Street was right, only a little early in predicting financial calamity from a large deficit in 1988? If so will it bring ruin to the President and the Republican Party? Or will we see the Bush administration turn a financial debacle to its advantage as it did with 9-11 declaring a national emergency and pushing through a radical agenda that palls the Patriot Act?

The fact is that America is in a much more precarious financial position than it was during the Reagan years. The current account deficit is breaking records and in relation to the economy is in territory that has historically brought crisis, the budget deficit is ballooning and the dollar is slumping.

The stakes are high. The last time America was in bad financial straits was during the Great depression of the 1930's. The hardship of the depression served as a backdrop for major political changes around the globe; Fascism rose in Germany and Italy while America witnessed the New Deal.

The Great Depression also served as the precursor to WWII.

The following analysis shows why America is in financial trouble, what President Bush might do in response and some ideas as to what progressives and faith based activists can do to prevent the Bush administration from further hijacking our country.

Part I-
http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/BePrepared-CapitalAccountProblem.htm
-A capital account problem. America is about to go bust.
Our financial woes do not come from a borrowing binge gone too far, but rather from "over-investment" by central bankers looking to prop up the dollar. We have confused this inflow as a sign of American might and superiority when it is not. We need to realize that "the market" is terrible at allocating resources, particularly at a time when we are beginning a national debate about privatizing Social Security.

Part II-
http://www.jubileeinitiative.org/BePrepared-BushAgenda.htm
-Be Prepared: The president will respond to the crisis the way he did to 9-11; He will politicize it, build upon our country's fears and use it to further his crusade.

Unless we are vigilant the Bush administration will prevail.
