Six Cases of Cancer in the same Road

Thank you Andy and Sylvia,

I am most interested in your theory about DECT phones. When did they first appear?

There have been alot of cases of cancer near where I was yesterday, but these started long before I came to Kensworth. One lady had cancer of the breast and said it was a radio aerial causing it, but there is no aerial where she said it was, but there is one about 300 yards away and of course that was there long before 2001 when the Orange mast was erected.

The same lady told me that there had been about six other cases of cancer in the same road (in fact I had spoken to a lady previously whose husband had had cancer of the jaw - they live opposite the lady with breast cancer). There have also been animals effected nearby- three dogs 1. cancer of mouth. 1. area unknown. 1. small growths appearing on paws which owner has removed by the vet.

Change of subject. I am reading a very interesting book (loaned by Phil Watts, thank you Phil!) The Zapping of America, which gives detailed info re Pandora and the American Embassy etc. The symptom of raised white bloodcell count experienced there made me ask victims in Kensworth to get there white bloodcell count checked last year, but none of them have done it. I found out about two cases 100 metres from the mast last year - the doctors can find no reason for the symptom as there is no infection. How about everyone affected getting their white cell count checked? I thought if there is a high number of cases it may be evidence to use in appeals.

This is the sort of thing the Dept of Health should be looking at instead of spending £10,000,000 on more lab tests.

What does everyone think?

Best regards,

Gill Lyden

Elevated white blood cell count was also a feature of the Skrunda study. And once again, there is direct association between white cells and nitric oxide production.

This is not an exclusive feature to microwave masts, but EMF in general at low modulation frequencies, which includes power lines.

And yes, this kind of assessment needs to be made over time among people in mast-exposure environments, but it does require that the sources also be removed/switched off for a period as well. Can it really be more expensive to switch some masts off while assessing the "recovery period", than setting up expensive lab operations??

Stealth Recruiting Database by Pentagon Violates Parental Rights and Student Privacy

MAD OFFERS OPT-OUT FORMS TO PARENTS

Last weeks revelation that the Pentagon hired an outside marketing firm to compile an extensive database of high school and college age students who meet minimum requirements for military service has earned the scrutiny of privacy rights advocates and the anger of moms across the country.

The Pentagon has violated the law and infringed on parental rights by compiling an extensive database of personal information on American teenagers, charges the chairman of a national anti-conscription movement.

“We’re outraged by the Pentagon’s predatory and illegal actions,” stated Janine Hansen, Chairman of Mothers Against the Draft (MAD). “Particularly troubling is the fact that the Pentagon compiled this massive, centralized database in secrecy, and has been using it for three years before giving public notice as required by the Privacy Act.”

The Joint Advertising and Market Research Recruiting Database (JAMRS), created with the aid of a private marketing firm, contains extensive information on 30 million young Americans between the ages of 16 to 25. Updated daily with new records, JAMRS includes such information as social security number, ethnicity, grade point average, areas of study, height, weight, postal and email address, selective service registration, and phone number.

“The very existence of the database is an unlawful and unwarranted violation of the privacy rights of our children,” declared Debbie Hopper, MAD’s Vice Chairman. “It’s also a clear warning to every mother in America that the Department of Defense, desperate to fill boots on the ground in Iraq , is more than willing to circumvent the law to ensure that no child is left un-recruited.”

“The military manpower problem is real and significant,” said Hansen. “When there aren’t enough volunteers, Congress is left with few choices. They can significantly raise taxes to support a mercenary force, change our foreign policy and reduce our overseas military commitments, or resort to the draft or some other form of compulsory national service to fill the gap.”

“We’re not anticipating a military draft like what we saw during the Vietnam War,” said Hopper. “We think it far more likely that we’ll see legislation mandating two years of ‘national service’ for all young men and women, perhaps coupled with a skills draft of older citizens who are doctors, nurses, EMT’s, Arabic linguists, and others who possess ‘special skills’ sorely needed by the military.”

“Conditions are growing ripe for such a push,” said Hansen. “It’s time for Congress to stop dodging the draft issue. The mothers of American have an absolute right to know if our elected representatives support a draft or other forms of involuntary national service. And our representatives have an absolute duty to tell us the truth.”

Parents can take action to protect their children’s privacy by submitting a request in writing to the Joint Advertising and Mark et Research Study Office. Opt-out forms and mailing instructions are available on MAD’s website at http://www.mothersagainstthedraft.org .

For more information or to arrange an interview with Janine Hansen, Chairman of MAD please call 775-356-9009. To interview Debbie Hopper, MAD Vice Chairman, please call 636-861-7052.

Oil-for-Feud

You've heard it plenty of times: The Saudis are exporting Islamist militancy throughout the Middle East and beyond, and Americans are picking up the tab, with the $30 billion we spend annually on Saudi oil helping to finance fundamentalist mosques and madrassas. "We are financing both sides in the war on terrorism," observed Thomas L. Friedman in a March New York Times column. And we're doing so faster than ever, because oil now fetches nearly $60 a barrel--more than twice the pre-September 11 price. The only solution, experts say, is to spend less on fossil fuel and more on renewable energy--a double whammy of environmentalism and power politics that Friedman has dubbed the "geo-green strategy." Cutting dependence on foreign oil is "America's best weapon against terrorism," argues the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (a hawkish think tank whose energy proposals have been backed by green groups like the Natural Resources Defense Council). The group says it would "invalidate the social contract between the leaders and their people and stem the flow of resources to the religious establishment."

http://www.veteransforcommonsense.org/?Page=Article&ID=3743

Power Failure

No one would support a crime bill that didn't mention murder, a Social Security bill that said nothing about benefits, or an anti-terrorism bill without provisions concerning the capture of terrorists. But, this week, the Senate is debating the equivalent, as it considers an omnibus energy bill that says nothing about the number-one problem in U.S. energy policy: rising petroleum consumption by cars, SUVs, and trucks. This issue swamps all other energy policy concerns combined. Yet the administration's energy bill, more than four years in the making, does absolutely nothing to mandate or even encourage higher miles-per-gallon (MPG) performance by U.S. vehicles. This makes the energy bill one of the most preposterous pieces of major legislation ever seriously considered by the U.S. Congress, which, we realize, is saying a lot.

The Army's Hard Sell

The Journey is the Destination - Shift the Paradigm from Conflict to UNITY

G8--Our Agenda - "Our World Working For All Of Us"

Please forward to your contacts

This gathering could turn out to be the biggest ever, bigger than Woodstock or the Isle of White both in size and significance – an ocean of humanity expressing the cry from deep in the heart of our generation for a better way of running the anthill that is our global culture – each of us a drop in that ocean.

"Each and every drop entering the ocean immediately becomes the ocean"

Why are we demonstrating at the G8?

What is it really all about?

What do we realistically hope to achieve?

What is possible in the realpolitik?

Africa, global warming, third world debt, Iraq etc are only symptoms, a metaphor for what we are all dissatisfied about.

Africa and the other issues expose the lack of integrity that is driving and has driven global behavior for thousands of years both in the macro of global trade and in the micro of our individual relationships with each other.

When I look in the mirror, I can see all the garbage of this world operating within me also as I conduct my life in the daily scramble to survive another day on this spinning lump of rock.

How do I interact with my neighbors and friends? - Global peace begins right here with me and then spills out radiating throughout the global culture.

The beauty of these times is that there is no escape from this reality anymore. Extinction is the only way out. Either we face our issues individually and globally or our civilisation will cease to exist.

Live 8 @ the G8 is the heart of the people crying out for something different, a new way of operating. Each of us is a single blade of grass cracking the concrete. This has been building for a long time since the first wave in the sixties -- it now comes of age.

It is important that we operate in this situation with the consciousness of "the journey is the destination".

The issues that we are addressing are ignorance - fear, selfishness, and the resulting dishonesty. What is important is that we understand that this is an evolutionary moment; it is in innocence, that the human race is where it is.

Down from the trees, but not yet walking upright. We are monkeys barely out of the jungle squeezing this amazing civilisation out of the rocks.

We must move beyond finger pointing, blame, and demonisation. Move beyond "protesting against" to "demonstrating FOR"

Say Yes To Peace
http://www.infinitepossibility.org/yes1/index.html

We must leave the "Them and Us" paradigm back in the second millennium where it has already created too much havoc. The time has come for us to move together in partnership for:

"Our world working for all of us without exception"

In my opinion, this is what we are demonstrating about.

If we go to Edinburgh with hatred, negativity and blame in our hearts and minds, we will be part of the problem, not the solution.The result will be more of the same if not worse.

""You can take a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink"
BUT ………. You can sprinkle salt in its food.

We must truly "BE THE CHANGE that we want to see in the world" – BE IT NOW!

Each and every breath – Remember, honey is sweeter and more attractive than vinegar.

We are Dancing our Dream of a better world Awake into Reality.

Bring CHALK to Edinburgh – express yourselves for all to see. Bring extra CHALK to share with others:

Is Cheney the new "Baghdad Bob?"

06/27/05

Is it just me, or is Vice President Cheney, who repeated Thursday that the Iraq insurgency is in its final throes, starting to sound like former Saddam spokesman 'Baghdad Bob?' Is it time to start calling him 'D.C. Dick?' Yesterday, after a week of serious criticism, for claiming that the insurgency in Iraq was in its 'last throes,' Cheney refused to back down, even after Gen. John Abizaid, our top military commander for the Middle East, proclaimed that the insurgency, in fact, was as strong as ever, and 'a lot of work' remained to be done to defeat it. ... Yet Cheney said on Thursday, 'If you look at what the dictionary says about 'throes,' it can still be a violent period.' He compared this time to the end of World War II when tough battles 'occurred just a few months before the end. I see this as a similar situation.' Give this man a beret!

Press apologists for torture

No matter what comes out, we are surrounded by a smug arrogance, a self-righteous 'defense' that says, 'My country can do no wrong.' In the air is a firm and determined premise: If 'My' country does it, it automatically becomes right and justifiable. Too often, those of us who demand we act in accord with our constitution, international law, common decency, and the values laid down by our founding fathers are accused of 'treason'...

Constitution Death Pool

06/27/05

Right now, the Constitution is under an unprecedented assault. In recent times, we have seen the anti-First Amendment law known as the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act, Supreme Court assaults on the Fifth and Tenth Amendments, and more assaults on the Second Amendment than we can possibly count. This blog will be a venue for us to chronicle the actions of those who would trample our Constitutional rights in the name of political expediency. We will also be making an effort to coordinate contact with elected officials to let them know that we do not appreciate the paths our government has taken in recent times...

Your castle no more

Th[e] decision in the Kelo v. New London case is another giant step toward classical corporatism or fascism in America. In this case the city council of New London, CT, decided to condemn and take the homes and businesses of a number of citizens, including the Derys and Susette Kelo, who filed the case, in the name of economic development. The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows governments to take property by eminent domain, as long as just compensation is paid, but only for public uses. These uses have always been understood to be necessary government-provided infrastructure such as courthouses or roads. Otherwise, property should be sacrosanct. Individuals, businesses or governments might seek to purchase it, but if the owner does not wish to sell, that is his or her right -- meaning one need not secure the permission or blessing of neighbors, government or 'society' to own property. But in recent decades politicians have made increasingly brazen elitist attempts to remodel our lives and communities." (06/27/05)

Phantom Menace

The Washington agencies of national security display a distressing detachment from the realities of the American situation in the Middle East. The Army, its Reserve, and the Marine Corps are overcommitted, with deteriorating morale. The volunteer military cannot find the recruits it needs. Conscription is politically unthinkable but could become the only alternative. In these circumstances, the Defense Department, which has been unable to supply body and vehicle armor in adequate quantities, is preoccupied with new nuclear weapons and space wars. It wants vast new expenditures on projects with no relevance to present realities -- new and 'more usable' nuclear weapons, including earth-penetrating 'bunker busters.' The need is highly debatable, and the political costs of developing new nuclear weapons enormous... (for publication 07/04/05)

America's perverse "public" media

06/27/05

The Soviet Union had no free press, privately owned, politically independent, competing publications dealing with ideas and whatever else readers would find of interest. The old USSR had Pravda and other state run newspapers and broadcast outlets. This kind of media exists in other parts of the world but the United States of America was to be a haven for a completely free press. Sadly, even there broadcast media fell into the hands of government .... Still, even with this intrusiveness, radio and TV do not get funded by monies extorted via taxation. There is still a pretty good semblance of competition on the airwaves, especially with the arrival a few decades ago of cable TV and the Internet. One thing is, however, way over the top in American media affairs. This is the prominence of National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service...

Trading, not invading

On the one hand, when dealing with Saddam Hussein's Iraq, the ayatollahs' Iran, Kim Jong Il's North Korea, and Fidel Castro's Cuba, President Bush and his aides have insisted that economic sanctions, diplomatic isolation, and the use of military power ('regime change') -- an approach that can be described as U.S. 'destructive disengagement' toward these governments -- are the only way to transform totalitarian systems and authoritarian regimes into democracies and free-market economies. On the other hand, when it comes to communist-ruled Vietnam -- it is less democratic than Iran and has less religious freedom than Saddam Hussein permitted in Iraq -- President Bush has been pursuing a policy of 'constructive engagement' based on the notion that expanding diplomatic and economic ties with an authoritarian government is the most effective way to help move it in the direction of free markets and democracy...

Aside from violating the fundamental law of the Constitution, Kelo subverts the free market's system of voluntary exchange. Prior to Kelo, if Corporation X, for example, desired to purchase a parcel of land to build a hotel, it had to make a satisfactory offer to the owner. If the parties agreed on a price, a voluntary transaction resulted in which both parties felt they benefited. Under Kelo, if the property owner does not agree to Corporation X's terms, then Corporation X has the option of persuading the government to exercise the power of eminent domain. Corporation X need only allege that its proposed hotel will be a more productive use of the property...

We're all Indians now

06/26/05

The Supreme Soviet has declared, in effect, that there is no such thing as private property. If someone, government representative or not, desires to take your land and your home and do something with it, it can be done so long as the thief can demonstrate improvement to the public good. Property taxes, effectively rent paid to your local government, were bad enough. Now they've come right out and said that you no longer own your home. If some developer wants to tear up a place you've spent 40 years putting your heart and soul into so he can build a Wal*Mart, you have no defense, no recourse, and no hope. Just like the Indians one or two centuries ago, men with guns will appear to shove you away and onto a different but worthless piece of ground to start over...

Remember Kelo

06/28/05

I confess that I am having trouble summoning the appropriate outrage at Kelo v. New London, the Supreme Court decision that permits states and local governments to use eminent domain powers to transfer land from one private owner to another. This assault on the rights of poor and middle-class homeowners for the benefit of corporations and developers is indeed outrageous. We should all be angry. But the real villains are not senior citizens on a bench in Washington D.C, but the politicians, bureaucrats, and developers who conspire to steal land in our communities...

Blair defends ID cards after experts blast plan

Tony Blair faced a dual assault on the Government's proposals for ID cards yesterday, with leading academics and the official information watchdog condemning plans for a national identity database covering every individual in Britain. A 300-page report by staff at the London School of Economics made fundamental criticisms of the justification, technology and scope of the ID cards scheme. The report warned that it could pose a 'far greater risk to the safety and security of UK citizens' than any of the problems it is intended to address. In a second blow to the Government's proposals, Richard Thomas, the information commissioner, also strongly attacked plans for a national identity register as 'unwarranted and intrusive.' He said ID cards could be used to track people's lives and help create a 'surveillance society...

Score of Muslim men jailed without charges

06/27/05

Operating behind a wall of secrecy, the U.S. Department of Justice thrust scores of Muslim men living in the United States into a Kafkaesque world of indefinite detention without charge and baseless accusations of terrorist links, Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union said in a report released today. Following the September 11 attacks, the Justice Department held the 70 men -- all but one Muslim -- under a narrow federal law that permits the arrest and brief detention of 'material witnesses' who have important information about a crime, if they might otherwise flee to avoid testifying before a grand jury or in court. Although federal officials suspected the men of involvement in terrorism, it held them as material witnesses, not criminal suspects. Almost half of the witnesses were never brought before a grand jury or court to testify. The U.S. government has apologized to 13 for wrongfully detaining them. Only a handful were ever charged with crimes related to terrorism...

Senators seek rules for Gitmo detainees

06/27/05

Two Democratic senators, just back from Guantanamo Bay, said Monday that Congress should come up with concrete rules for handling detainees at the U.S. prison there. Sens. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Ben Nelson of Nebraska said more precise rules would help ensure that prisoners would not be abused and that the United States would not suffer further embarrassments because of the way detainees were treated...

Halliburton's Iraq deals "contract abuse"

06/27/05

A top Army procurement official said today Halliburton's deals in Iraq were the worst example of contract abuse she had seen as Pentagon auditors flagged over $1 billion of potential overcharges by the Texas-based firm. Bunny Greenhouse, the Army Corps of Engineers' top contracting official-turned whistle-blower, said in testimony at a hearing by Democrats on Capitol Hill that 'every aspect' of Halliburton's oil contract in Iraq had been under the control of the Office of the Secretary of Defense...

Disapproval of Bush at high point

06/27/05

The number of Americans disapproving of President Bush's job performance has risen to the highest level of his presidency, according to the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday. According to the poll, 53 percent of respondents said they disapproved of Bush's performance, compared to 45 percent who approved. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 percentage points. The 53 percent figure was the highest disapproval rating recorded in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll since Bush became president in January 2001...
