Joy as mast bid turned down

DAVID BALE
01 December 2005 13:36

Moves to install a mobile phone mast on top of a church have been blocked after worried families opposed the scheme.

Phone giant 3G was consulting people in Lakenham about putting a mobile phone mast on top of St John's Church in Howard Road.

The proposed mast would have been close to the the back garden of mother-of-two Naomi Leeder, 27, who collected about 150 names on a petition against it.

The plans were discussed by St John's parochial church council on Monday night and turned down.

If it had gone ahead the church would have been paid about £5,000 by the phone company.

Rev Katharine Lovesey, curate at St John's church and St Paul's church, Tuckswood, said: "We were approached by the phone company. They said they considered the church to be a perfect place for a mast.

"We were looking into it and sent out a letter asking people what they thought about the idea.

"Naomi was very helpful with what she did, giving us a good view of what people around us did not want.

"Given the response, at a meeting of the parochial church council on Monday night, we decided that the mast would not be appropriate and that is the end of it.

"We would have been paid £5,000 which would have gone towards church running costs. But the church is not just about money."

Mrs Leeder, of Osbert Close, was delighted with the result.

She said: "It's great news and proves that all the work I put in, going round to people's houses to get their signatures, was worth it."

She said previously that she would have moved if the mast had been built.

"My eldest, six-year-old Rose, has only got one kidney and my three-year-old, Charlotte, has chronic asthma and eczema, so I did want any more health risks on my doorstep," she added.

Mrs Leeder, who lives with her husband Jamie, also 27, a taxi driver, was mainly concerned about the possible health risks, particularly cancer.

Mike Davies, community affairs manager at Hutchison 3G, said: "We need coverage in the area and to do that we have to find a suitable site, but if the PCC are not prepared to take it forward that option is not available."

The Evening News has campaigned through our Put Masts On Hold campaign against the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools until it is proved they are safe.

Dr Ian Gibson, Norwich North MP, and long-time supporter of our campaign, said he was pleased with the result.

Five years ago controversy was sparked when Norwich's Catholic Cathedral put up a phone mast at the top of its tower.

Scrooge council sinks tenants' anti-phone mast bid

01 December 2005

THREE Orange mobile phone masts are being erected because Town Hall bunglers wanted to save seven pence on the cost of a single stamp.

Tower Hamlets’ planning bosses have been forced to apologise for the fiasco, which has outraged hundreds of families on the Isle of Dogs.

It has emerged the council refused mobile phone giant Orange permission to build three 10metre masts on the Island in August last year.

Planners said although the controversial masts - one of which is near George Green's School - were disguised as lampposts, they would spoil the character of the area.

So when engineers - protected by burly security guards - started to build the last of them in Farnworth House in Manchester Road last week, bemused neighbours called the police.

Work was halted and an investigation was launched. The council even wrote to Orange to complain, but they have now discovered the refusal notice was sent out just a day before the deadline, but with just a second-class stamp.

The authority saved seven pence on the 2004 cost of a first, but the legal deadline was missed and consent was deemed given by default.

Bosses are now powerless to stop the masts going up, but have pledged to tighten up procedures by sending all future similar letters by recorded delivery.

A council spokeswoman said they were “sorry” and added: “Regrettably, this was a one-off incident where the decision to refuse the notification from the telecommunications company was not issued in time to be effective.

“We take all representations on planning proposals very seriously and regret that, on this occasion, those objections were ineffective.”

But local Tory spokesman Tim Archer, who led the original campaign against the last year’s planning application, said he would be buying the council a book of first-class stamps “in case it’s got anything else important to post”.

The Rip-Off of Iraq's Oil Wealth

BACKGROUND: *Crude Designs: The Rip-Off of Iraq's Oil Wealth*

[In November 2005, PLATFORM published an unprecedentedly detailed study of Big Oil's plan for exploiting Iraq's oil wealth. -- As the press release announcing the study says, this is the first study to attempt to calculate the cost to the Iraqi people of the oil contracts being imposed upon it.[1] -- "Control of Iraq's future oil wealth is being handed to multinational oil companies through long-term contracts that will cost Iraq hundreds of billions of dollars." -- No wonder the resistance to American plans is considerable. -- The Bush administration's plans for Iraq, of course are predicated on the notion that most Americans and Iraqis are too thick to be able to see the arrangements described here for what they are: a design to rip off Iraq's oil wealth. -- Primarily the work of researcher Greg Mottiett, the study is called *Crude Designs: The Rip-Off of Iraq's Oil Wealth*. -- While a clever pun, this title is not really accurate, since the U.S. plan is anything but a crude one. -- Perhaps *Refined Design* would have been a better title. -- UFPPC has posted the text of Greg Mottiett's *Crude Designs: The Rip-Off of Iraq's Oil Wealth* in HTML format in three parts: Part I:
http://www.ufppc.org/content/view/3704/ "Executive Summary" & Section One: "The Ultimate Prize: Anglo-American Interests in Gulf Oil"; Part II:
http://www.ufppc.org/content/view/3705/ Section Two: "Re-Thinking Privatization: Production Sharing Agreements," Section Three: "Pumping Profits: Big Oil and the Push for PSAs," Section Four: "From Washington to Baghdad: Planning Iraq's Oil Future," & Section Five: "Contractual Rip-Off: The Cost of PSAs to Iraq"; and Part III:

CRUDE DESIGNS -- THE RIP-OFF OF IRAQ'S OIL WEALTH

Platform November 2005

http://www.crudedesigns.org/

Control of Iraq's future oil wealth is being handed to multinational oil companies through long-term contracts that will cost Iraq hundreds of billions of dollars.

*Crude Designs: The Rip-Off of Iraq's Oil Wealth* reveals that current Iraqi oil policy will allocate the development of at least 64% of Iraq’s reserves to foreign oil companies. Iraq has the world’s third largest oil reserves.

Figures published in the report for the first time show:

--the estimated cost to Iraq over the life of the new oil contracts is $74 to $194 billion, compared with leaving oil development in public hands. These sums represent between two and seven times the current Iraqi state budget.

--the contracts would guarantee massive profits to foreign companies, with rates of return of 42% to 162%.

The kinds of contracts that will provide these returns are known as production sharing agreements (PSAs). PSAs have been heavily promoted by the U.S. government and oil majors and have the backing of senior figures in the Iraqi Oil Ministry. Britain has also encouraged Iraq to open its oilfields to foreign investment.

However, PSAs last for 25-40 years, are usually secret, and prevent governments from later altering the terms of the contract.

God and man in the environmental debate

Acton Institute
by Jay W. Richards

11/30/05

Because environmental policies perpetuate certain notions about the human person, and because these notions have real world consequences, Christians have little choice but to engage the debate over the environment. In particular, we should strongly challenge the misanthropic strain in the modern environmental movement. Human beings aren't an accident. We are an intended part of God's good creation. And while God called everything he created 'good,' he only called human beings, whom He created in his own image, 'very good.' That doesn't mean God has given us a free pass to do whatever we want...

Bush finally has a plan

Slate
by Fred Kaplan

11/30/05

The most remarkable thing about the document President George W. Bush released today, titled National Strategy for Victory in Iraq, is that it was released today (and written not much earlier -- it's authored by the National Security Council and dated November 2005). It is symptomatic of everything that's gone wrong with this war that, after two and a half years of fighting it (and four years after starting to plan it), the White House is just now getting around to articulating a strategy for winning it. To put this in perspective: From December 1941 to August 1945, the U.S. government mobilized an entire nation; manufactured a mighty arsenal; played a huge role in defeating the armies, air forces, and navies of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan; and emerged from battle poised to shape the destiny of half the globe. By comparison, from September 2001 to December 2005, the U.S. government has advanced to the point of describing a path to victory in a country the size of California...

Quitting is an exit strategy

While George Bush explains his 'victory strategy' for Iraq to the American people, his Pentagon chief has already thrown out the most obvious option. There will be no immediate troop withdrawal, cautioned Donald Rumsfeld, because 'quitting is not an exit strategy.' But why not? What's wrong with cutting and running? It's time for the U.S. military to leave Iraq. It's not just the increasing death toll and the still-missing stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. It's not even the tens of billions of dollars in handouts to giant corporations like Bechtel and Halliburton. We need to leave Iraq because we're not wanted there...

A British government crackdown on government leaks may have backfired by calling world attention to an ultrasensitive secret memo whose alleged contents have embarrassed President George W. Bush and strained relations between London and Washington. The document allegedly recounts a threat last year by Bush to bomb the head office of the Arabic TV news channel Al-Jazeera. U.K. authorities consider the memo, described as minutes or a transcript of an April 16, 2004, White House meeting between Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, so diplomatically sensitive that Blair's attorney general last week warned U.K. media by e-mail that they could face prosecution under the country's draconian Official Secrets Act if they reported on its contents...

Dramatische Klimawende: Golfstrom droht zu kippen

Nachdem bisher Mainstreammedien und Experten routinemässig Beruhigungspillen an das Publikum verteilten, nun der Alarmruf: binnen kurzer Zeit könne in Europa sibiisches Klima EInzug halten, weil der Golfstrom kippt..Messungen und Vergleiche ergaben, dass seine Intensität bereits um 30% nachgelassen hat.

Eine der aufwendigsten Studien zur Klimaveränderung war - trotz Geheimhaltung - bereits im letzten Jahr bekannt geworden und beschrieb das Risiko, dass infolge der Klimaveränderungen der Golfstrom zum Stehen kommen könnte und damit eine neue Eiszeit in Europa anbrechen würde mit sibirischen Temperaturen. Eine solche Klimawende könne innerhalb weniger Jahre eintreten, wenn das bisherige Gleichgewicht erst einmal gestört sei. Die Ergebnisse dieser Studie wurden von vielen Klimaexperten noch als hypothetisch abgetan.

Nun wurden Messwerte bekannt, die genau diese in der Pentagonstudie beschriebene Entwicklung bestätigen und belegen, dass wir uns auf dünnerem Eis bewegen, als selbst Pessimisten befürchteten: danach hat die Stärke des Golfstroms bereits um 30% abgenommen. Und: an einem bestimmten Punkt dieser Entwicklung kann er - wie aus diversen wissenschaftlich erstellten Simuationen hervorgeht - abrupt ganz zum Stillstand kommen.

Veröffentlicht wurde der Bericht des National Oceaonography Centre in Southampton im Wissenschaftsmagazin "Nature". Detlef Quadfasel, Ozeanograph an der Uni Hamburg kommentierte die Situation, die sich durch das Abschmelzen der polaren Eiskappen ergibt: "Zunehmender Süßwasserzufluss in die nördlichen Meere wird die Zirkulation zunächst nur langsam schwächen. Wenn aber eine bestimmte Schwelle erreicht wird, könnte die Zirkulation abrupt zu einem neuen Status wechseln, in dem es kaum oder keinen Wärmezufluss mehr nach Norden gibt."

Das Ergebnis wäre dann sibirisches Klima in Europa.

Aufzuhalten wäre diese Entwicklung nur noch durch massive Reduzierung der CO2-Emissionen, wie sie von den USA strikt verweigert und auch von den Unterzeichnerstaaten des Kyotoprotokolls nicht ernsthaft betrieben wird.

Sports club left on hold over telephone mast plans

By Jane Bruccoleri

Confusion has arisen in South Croydon as plans to erect a mobile telephone mast on the roof of a local sports club have been put on hold.

Concerned residents contacted the Croydon Guardian claiming that Vodafone was set to install a mast at South Croydon Sports Club in Beech Copse.

Stephen Harris, who lives only 50 metres from the club in Spencer Road, said that he would be prepared to stage a protest should it go ahead but had been told the plan had now been scrapped.

Mr Harris, who has been a member of the club for nine years, added: "I've got really mixed feelings because this is going to bring in a lot of money for the club.

"However, as a member I was disappointed not to have been informed and as a resident I was massively concerned about the possible health impact.

"Some people did want the mast, so there may be some antagonism about the decision but everyone wants the best for the club."

Club chairman Rob Stodart explained that the club did discuss the proposal but would have to get the approval of the site's landlord if it was to go ahead.

However, he said that they would not rule out a mast at some point as "the club has to think about it's future."

He added: "The management committee of the club would be failing the members if they didn't consider ways of making money for them.

"If we don't put it on our roof then someone else will."

Vodafone confirmed that the mobile phone mast plan has not been discarded by the club, and if it goes ahead, they will discuss the plans with people living in the area.

Jane Frapwell, electro-magnetic fields adviser for Vodafone, said the company was willing to take on board constructive suggestions in regards to design and would also consider any suggested alternative sites.

"If we can change things we will," she said: "Vodafone will be inviting feedback from nearby residents and schools and no work will start until this has been done."

Speaking about the impact on people's health, she added: "This is a technology that has been in use for decades and is used for television, radios, ambulance services and no adverse health effects have been found. We take our lead from the experts."

Talk of ban on phone masts near schools

Mobile phone giants could soon be banned from erecting telecommunications masts near to homes and schools in the Telford area, amid growing fears.

It follows concerns from residents that the large number of masts in the borough are an eyesore and pose a health risk to children.

The issue was raised at a meeting of Telford & Wrekin Council last night when councillors backed a motion designed to allay public fears.

The motion called for a comprehensive and up-to-date register of all phone mast sites being made available to the public, a forum to liaise with the telecommunication firms and only to grant approval to applications for ‘targeted sites’.

Councillor Arnold England who proposed the motion, said he had the backing of campaigner, Bev Walker, and a representative from Telford Senior Citizens Forum.

Councillor Gary Davies seconded the motion, which won the backing of 24 councillors to 17, and will now be examined further by a scrutiny committee.

Back in August, Telford and Wrekin Council embarked on a review of its policy which is still ongoing.

The chemical depletes the earth's protective ozone layer and can harm the human neurological system, an increasing concern as people settle further into what was once just farm country.

Students Face Expulsion for Anti-Bush Organizing

Left-leaning students at Hampton University have felt for some time that campus administrators favor conservative groups and limit the free speech of liberal ones. Their argument has gained steam - and faculty members' support - over the past month, as seven students who helped organize a gathering opposing the Bush administration face a hearing Friday that could lead to their expulsion.

50 Years Ago Today

December 1, 2005

I just thought we should all pause for a moment today to remember the simple act of courage, defiance and dignity committed by Rosa Parks when she refused to move to the back of the bus because the law said she had the wrong skin color. The greatest moments in history, the ones that have truly mattered and have taken us to a better place, are made up of scores of these singular acts by ordinary, everyday people who could no longer tolerate the crap and the nonsense of those in charge.

Today, whether it is a student who holds a sit-in to get the army recruiters off his campus, or the mother of a dead soldier who refuses to leave the front gate of the president's ranch, we continue to be saved by brave people who risk ridicule and rejection but end up turning huge tides of public opinion in the direction of righteousness. We owe them enormous debts of gratitude. It is not easy to stand up for what is right, especially when everyone else is afraid to leave the comfortable path of conformity.

Rosa Parks may have been alone on that bus at the moment of her arrest but she wasn't alone for long. The old order was shaken, the world was upended and, as a people, we were given a chance for a bit of redemption.

Perhaps the best way to celebrate this most important day in American history is to ask yourself what it is that you can do today to make a difference. What risk can you take to move the ball forward? What is that one thing you've been wanting to say to your co-workers or classmates that you've been afraid to say -- but in your heart of hearts you know needs to be said? Why wait another day to say it or do it?

There is probably no better way to honor Rosa Parks -- and yourself -- than for you to put a stop to an injustice you see, not allowing it to continue for one more second. Do something. Then send me an email (contributions@michaelmoore.com) and tell all of us what you did (I'll post as many as I can).

Fifty years later, the bus we're on could use a few more people simply saying, "No. I'm sorry. I've had enough. I'm not going to take it anymore."

Iraq: the imperial solution

The rise of Iraqi death squads

By Mike Whitney

"Do you remember the right-wing execution squads in El Salvador?" one [Pentagon] official asked Hersh. "We founded them and we financed them. The objective now is to recruit locals in any area we want." ... The authorization for the death squads comes straight from the Oval Office. ... The final leg on the stool is the propaganda war that is being directed against the American people to conceal the details of the military’s war crimes.

Handys beeinflussen offensichtlich Speichel und Wasser

Heft: 08/2003 - Geowissenschaften

H2O
Das Gedächtnis des Wassers

Die einen sprechen von sensationellen Erkenntnissen, die anderen von Scharlatanerie. Wissenschaftler streiten, ob H2O in der Lage ist, informationen zu speichern.

Eigentlich war Professor Bernd Kröplin auf der Suche nach einer „Astronautenmedizin“ auf Wasserbasis. Als der Raumfahrtingenieur dabei auch Trinkwasser mit elektromagnetischen Wellen bestrahlte, entdeckte er Erstaunliches: Die Energie schuf nie gesehene Strukturen im Wasser.

Was war passiert? Die Forscher hatten eine Wasserprobe zwei Minuten lang dem Feld eines eingeschalteten Mobiltelefons ausgesetzt. Danach wurden die Tropfen unter einem Mikroskop mit 400-facher Vergrößerung beim Trocknen beobachtet. Eine Fotokamera hielt die Strukturen in den Rückständen des Wassers fest. Kröplin, Professor für Statik und Dynamik der Luft- und Raumfahrtkonstruktionen an der Universität Stuttgart, und seine Mitarbeiter waren verblüfft. Gegenüber dem unbestrahlten Wasser zeigten sich deutliche Veränderungen. Um völlig sicher zu gehen, wiederholten sie das Experiment mehrere hundert Mal, auch mit menschlichem Speichel. Das Fazit von Kröplins Arbeitsteam: „Bei jedem Test mit Mobiltelefonen konnten wir feststellen, dass nach Einwirkung des Handy-Felds die Vielfalt der Strukturen von Wasser und Speichel abnahm.“

Kröplin betont, die Ergebnisse seien reproduzierbar und würden wissenschaftlicher Überprüfung standhalten. Doch es bleiben viele Fragen: Wie lassen sich die veränderten Gesichter der Tropfen objektiv und präzise beschreiben? Wie lange hält der Bestrahlungseffekt an? Welche Auswirkungen hat er auf das noch nicht verdunstete Wasser? Und wie reagiert der menschliche Organismus auf das bestrahlte Nass? Die Antworten müssen gesucht werden.

Eines belegen die Versuche jedoch: Die Information Handy-Strahlung beeinflusst zumindest für gewisse Zeit – je nach Versuch können das laut Kröplin Minuten, Stunden, ja sogar Monate sein – die Eigenschaften von Trinkwasser. In diesem Fall also die Anordnung von Rückständen, wenn es verdunstet. H2O merkt sich also seine Behandlung, auch wenn ihm keine Chemikalien, Sauerstoff oder andere Substanzen beigemischt werden. Hat Wasser ein Gedächtnis?
