Exposure to pulse-modulated radio frequency electromagnetic fields affects regional cerebral blood flow

Exposure to pulse-modulated radio frequency electromagnetic fields affects regional cerebral blood flow

Abstract

We investigated the effects of radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMF) similar to those emitted by mobile phones on waking regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in 12 healthy young men. Two types of RF EMF exposure were applied: a 'base-station-like' and a 'handset-like' signal. Positron emission tomography scans were taken after 30 min unilateral head exposure to pulse-modulated 900 MHz RF EMF (10 g tissue-averaged spatial peak-specific absorption rate of 1 W/kg for both conditions) and sham control. We observed an increase in relative rCBF in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex on the side of exposure. The effect depended on the spectral power in the amplitude modulation of the RF carrier such that only 'handset-like' RF EMF exposure with its stronger low-frequency components but not the 'base-station-like' RF EMF exposure affected rCBF. This finding supports our previous observation that pulse modulation of RF EMF is necessary to induce changes in the waking and sleep EEG, and substantiates the notion that pulse modulation is crucial for RF EMF-induced alterations in brain physiology.

Tory adds voice to campaign for mast law

PETER WALSH

09 April 2005 13:57

Concerns about mobile phone masts and how close they are to homes and schools has emerged as a key election issue as the battle for the Norwich North seat hots up.

Dr Ian Gibson, who is seeking re-election as the Norwich North MP, has been an outspoken supporter of the Evening News's Put Masts On Hold campaign since it was launched in 2000.

But Dr Gibson, who helped bring world mast expert Sir William Stewart to the city for a debate on masts, has a pretender to his mast campaigning throne in the shape of Tory Parliamentary candidate James Tumbridge.

"Because people are concerned about where masts go, we're going to request that all masts require planning permission and that means we all have a say about where masts go," said Mr Tumbridge.

The Tories' five-point plan also states that local authorities should be able to take health concerns into account and requires phone operators to show the development does not result in "unacceptable damage to visual amenity" or harm environmentally sensitive areas.

Under Conservative policy, councils would also be required to draw up their own supplementary planning guidance to ensure consistency as part of the policy, which also calls for a single process for deciding masts.

"As a patent lawyer, I have spent a great deal of time looking at mobile telecommunication technology in the past year," said Mr Tumbridge, who also pledged to look at effects of handsets on health.

"Following recent talks with Dr Richard Gitlin, a US expert in mobile phone technology, I know that handsets rather than masts are the greatest concern. I will therefore press for research into both masts and handsets if I am elected.

"The Evening News is right to keep this issue in the news — I hope the people of Norwich have the chance to know who is really offering a policy for our benefit."

The Evening News is campaigning against the installation of masts near homes and schools until it is proved they are safe.

Dr Gibson, who has helped hundreds of campaigners fight mast applications near to homes and schools, said he was unperturbed by Mr Tumbridge's Tory challenge.

"His opportunism knows no bounds, poor desperate chap," said Dr Gibson. "Jumping on the bandwagon is one thing, but working over a long period trying to change Government policy is another."

Dr Gibson said it was only now that the campaign against mobile phone masts was starting to have an effect that the "opportunistic semi-politician" had shown an interest. "My advice to him would be don't give up the day job," said Dr Gibson.

Lobby sends 'no' signal over masts

Apr 8 2005

By Clare Casey

PROTESTERS took to the streets over plans for a third phone mast in a conservation area.

They were armed with "Are you listening Lambeth?" banners and a 500-strong petition calling for two O2 masts in Nevena Court, Brixton, to be removed and proposals for a third to be quashed.

Clare Macdonald, of Appach Road, 40, said: "Not only are they a complete eyesore that loom over our homes but they are a grave health risk.

"They don't even have planning permission for one of them."

Phone giant O2 put up the 3m masts on a three-storey block of private flats at the corner of Effra Road and Brixton Water Lane more than a year ago - but it only had permission for one. T-Mobile now wants to share the site and add a third, which has sparked fresh fury among residents.

Henrietta Mayhew, 40, of Appach Road, said: "I have a 20-month-old and a baby and every time I look up at the masts I worry about what they are doing to their health."

Councillor Toren Smith has joined the fight.

He said: "These masts are tall and extremely bulky with 'branches' coming off them - they are a terrible intrusion."

A Lambeth council spokeswoman confirmed one of the masts had been erected without permission.

She added: "We have spoken to O2 about this and they will co-operate by applying for retrospective planning permission.

"As with every application, the council will then consider public opinion before a decision is made."

A spokesman for O2 said he was unaware the company did not have permission for both of them.

He said: "I doubt whether the masts will be removed but I would be happy to meet with residents to allay their fears.

"We use plastic casing that can be made to look like a chimney and that could be an option here."

A spokesman for T-Mobile confirmed it had recently submitted a plan to the council for the shared site.

He said: "We sympathise with residents but, based on 40 years of research, we strongly believe the masts present no health risks."

PHONE PROTEST IN MPS' HANDS

by DAVID MACAULAY

12:00 - 08 April 2005

A leading MP has praised an Express & Echo campaign as he received a petition against a phone mast planned for the heart of a residential part of Exeter. Plans by Vodafone for the transmitter in Heavitree Road prompted over 700 city residents to sign the petition, which was set up by the Echo.

The antenna would be near several schools and a nursery, and directly outside the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital's maternity unit.

The Echo is campaigning to find a more suitable site and to address health fears over mast emissions.

Richard Spring, the vice-chairman of the All-Party Group on Mobile Communications, has praised the campaign.

He was behind a Private Members' Bill to bring in new controls on masts.

The West Suffolk MP will pass the petition to the five other committee members. He said it was time the Government gave more control on phone mast bids to local communities and councils.

"This is a matter of people power," he said. "The Government will have to listen to what people are saying.

"I absolutely applaud the Echo for what it is doing because there are more and more of these campaigns and anti-mast groups, and clearly in the Commons now there is very real concern."

Mr Spring's Bill would have allowed councils to consider the health implications of mobile phone masts before passing applications, while making all masts subject to planning control.

At present those under 15 metres high do not require permission.

But the Bill ran out of Parliamentary time last year.

A copy of the petition was last month presented to officials at Vodafone's head office.

The firm insists the Heavitree site is the only one suitable for the mast.

It says that all emissions from its mobile phone masts fall within strict Government guidelines

Burkhard Lenniger: Ein mehrfach prämierter Tierfilmer kämpft gegen seine Existenzvernichtung

(Auszug)

Berlin, Samstag, 09.04.2005

Beachten Sie bitte die angeblich bedauerlichen Einzelfälle, die aber schon längst keine Einzelfälle mehr sind:

In der historischen Altstadt von Einbeck treibt das örtliche Sozialamt einen kleinen selbstständigen Wollhändler in die extreme Verzweiflungstat und will es anschließend nicht gewesen sein.

Das Sozialamt wollte von dem kleinen Einzelhändler mit dem historischen Wollgeschäft aus der Einbecker Altstadt Unterhaltsleistungen für die pflegebedürftige Mutter.

Obwohl das Recht und die höchstrichterliche Rechtssprechung zugunsten des gewerblichen Geringverdieners keine Auflösng des Hausbesitzes verlangen, kümmerte es das Sozialamt der Stadt Einbeck nicht und trieb den kleinen Kaufmann bis in die Zwangsversteigerung des historischen Geschäftes, das seit 200 Jahren im Familienbesitz war.

Leider ist dieser Anlaß für die schreckliche Verzweiflungstat kein bedauerlicher Einzelfall.

Über die Jahre hinweg gab es in der Nachbarschaft von Einbeck bereits ähnlich verursachte Existenzvernichtungen.

Exemplarisch dafür sei das Schicksal des Schloßbesitzers Artur Frauenholz von der Erichsburg erwähnt.

In gleicher Weise wurde der Eigentümer des alten Forsthauses vom Kloster Amelunxborn in den Konkurs getrieben.

Länger zurück datiert der Fall mit dem Sollingschloß Nienover. Dort gab es ebenfalls behördliche Erpressungen, die den letzen privaten Eigentümer Herrn G. Beyer in die Verzweiflung und bis in Wutreaktionen trieben.

In Gronau an der Leine erwischte behördliche Gängelung den einst beliebtesten Konditor der Stadt und hatte auch den wirtschaftlichen Konkurs mit dem Verlust von Ehre, Vemögen und Einkommen zur Folge.

Wer nun glaubt, daß es sich nur um seltene Fälle der Begehrlichkeit an historischen Gebäuden handelt, der irrt gewaltig.

In diesen Tagen berichtete die Finanzial Times Deutschland von einem gerade aktuell geschehenden Vernichtungsfall einer privaten gewerblichen Existenz in Niedersachsen: Der mehrfach prämierte Tierfilmer Burkhard Lenniger wird mit unzulässigen Steuerforderungen rechtswidrig und systematisch in den Konkurs getrieben.

Collapse Of The U.S. Dollar: Too Close Or Too Far?

Collapse Of The U.S. Dollar: Too Close Or Too Far?

By Elsy Fors

Havana -

Most U.S. citizens, and many millions of others around the world, have about as much idea of what a collapse in the value of the U.S. dollar might really mean, as they have about how the dangers of global warming might affect human life.

Maybe they have noticed the price of fuel has gone through the roof, or that favorite imported products cost more than they used to, but there is nothing to throw them into panic - yet.

Nevertheless, international accounts indicate the US dollar has lost 38 percent of its value compared to the euro since February 2002, 25 percent in relation to the Canadian dollar, and 23 percent facing the Japanese yen.

These are but three examples.

Twenty years ago, the main US allies signed the so-called Plaza Agreement with Washington in the New York Plaza Hotel, to reduce the value of the US dollar, in order to enable the local market to balance its high commercial deficit.

But the US consumer buys more imported goods and services than locally produced ones, so the rise in exports generated by a cheaper dollar diluted the additional income with growing imports, leading to increasingly higher prices.

The other "twin", the budget deficit, was likewise inflated by tax reductions approved by George W. Bush that gave most benefit to the highest income bracket, ie the rich, so less contributions to the Treasury were made.

Experts quoted by The Financial Times, The New York Times and other media are in agreement in their predictions of a crisis in the world economy, and consequently, an ever-growing debt for the US, now the greatest debtor in history owing in all between 70 and 100 trillion dollars.

Awareness of the coming catastrophe has not entered the minds of most US citizens, fed only a diet of commercial radio and television trash controlled by five or six corporate media outlets. Truth is a delicacy alien to the palate of 99 percent of US citizens, especially economic truth.

For instance, if the US dollar falls 40 percent, and you had a million dollars before the fall, your million dollars will only be able to buy goods and services valued at 600,000 US dollars. This means that you will have lost 400,000 dollars of your total buying power.

The US dollar is the main international trade currency. Most of the world monetary reserves are expressed in US dollars.

Entire countries and their monetary reserves are tied to the fate of the US dollar, so it is easy to predict a generalized crisis, because of the wide interrelation joining the US economy with the rest of the world. Those who stand to lose most, and who pay for the financial forecasts, have already moved their money towards purchases of gold and silver, which have been a shelter against the vagaries of currency for 5,000 years.

Warren Buffet, the richest US citizen according to Forbes magazine, owns 20 percent of all the silver in existence, and has stated he no longer trusts his own country"s currency.

Bill Gates, President of Microsoft, is the owner of between 10 to 20 percent of the Pan American Silver Mine, and multi-millionaire George Soros also has abundant shares in gold and silver.

Now, under the government of George W. Bush, the budget deficit has reached 500 billion dollars, and the balance of trade another 500 billion, giving a joint deficit of more than a trillion dollars.

So why is the crisis not here? Because countries in the US dollar's sphere of influence, and mega economy investors, have been financing a good part of US debts. Another important amount comes from cutting domestic social programs and pensions, and allocations to education and environmental protection.

Renowned international economist Barry Eichengreen assured that according to the current exchange rate, the US account deficit is on an explosive course, and will increase from the current level of between 5 and 6 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to 8 percent by 2008, and up to 12 percent in 2010.

Eichengreen predicts that a strong fall of the US dollar would increase pressure on interest rates, and lead to a significant depression in US consumption and investments, followed by a recession.

Although markets do not yet anticipate a recession, foreigners who consider the current deficit and balance of payments unsustainable will continue to sell their dollars until interest rates go up again.

Sung Won Sohn, Head Economist of the Wells Fargo Bank, said that depreciation of the US dollar will not be enough to reduce the US balance of payments deficit, and that the main problems are the budget deficit and the low domestic saving rate.

Lehman Brothers senior economist Ethan Harris warned there is a limit to what foreign investors can do to keep on financing the US deficit, and said it is an unsustainable way to run any economy.

Economic commentator Kart Richebacher stated the origin of the commercial deficit was not devaluation of the US dollar, but the low domestic savings rate and low investment, and that in the 1989-1993 period, when the balance of trade deficit dropped, US total credit grew by 819 billion dollars a year.

However, in the four last years, ending in 2004, it grew three times faster, 2.4 trillion a year. This was the result of the expansionist policy of the US Federal Reserve, which reduced interest rates 13 times between January 2001 and June 2003.

In conclusion, many analysts consider that as a consequence of the trade imbalance restoration of the US economy is impossible, given its vulnerability to a sudden downturn.

Rudolph Giuliani Got Warning WTC Towers Were Going To Collapse

Prison Planet | April 9 2005

We first reported this 15 months ago but we have now received the video where then Mayor of New York Rudolph Giuliani admits to Peter Jennings that he got a warning that the South Tower was about to collapse.

Why is this important?

No steel framed building had ever collapsed from fire damage before in history. The event was unprecedented. To know the building was about to collapse would require inside knowledge of 'the 9/11 script' and how it was supposed to unfold on that fateful day.

Remember, right before the building collapsed, firefighters reported minimal fires which they could quickly and easily extinguish.
//prisonplanet.com/multimedia_priorknowledge_firefighterstape.html

Why didn't the brave firemen and rescue workers who were rushing into the building get the same warning? Even if the warning was only only communicated minutes before the collapse, countless lives could have been saved.

Consider the amount of people on the lower floors, in the lobby and immediately outside that could have rushed to safety in those few minutes.

Giuliani was operating out of Building 7 which he evacuated before that too was 'pulled' by means of demolition as Larry Silverstein admitted in a September 2002 PBS documentary. //www.prisonplanet.com/011904wtc7.html

New fight over latest mast plan

by Heather Slater

Apr 8, 2005, 08:34

Campaigners against mobile phone masts are preparing for a new battle after it was revealed that yet another could be on its way to Lichfield.

They are already fighting plans for a 24-metre high Vodafone mast in Eastern Avenue - and now Hutchinson 3G UK Ltd is considering installing one at a nearby business park.

Hutchinson 3G has notified Lichfield District Council of its intention but has not yet submitted a formal planning application.

The 20-metre mast would be on the Walter Tipper site in Britannia Enterprise Park, Europa Way.

Campaigners from Stowe Concerned Residents Against Masts are still waiting to find out if a mast proposed for Eastern Avenue, close to Charnwood Primary School, is given the go-ahead.

They fear too many masts are springing up in Lichfield and fear they are a potential health hazard, particularly to children.

Chairman David Brain said he had not seen the latest plans by Hutchinson 3G but he is concerned about them.

"Why is there a need for so many of these masts. Why are they being foisted upon us?" he said.

"There is good mobile phone coverage in Lichfield for all services, the vast majority of people don't want the things.

"The key thing next is whether or not the Vodafone mast in Eastern Avenue goes to the planning committee. I am hoping they will knock it on the head and decide they are wasting their time."

Alan Begley, from the Boley Park Action Group, successfully fought plans for a mast near Darnford Park in north Lichfield earlier this year.

He was also concerned by the news of the latest mast. "We seem to be getting a hell of a lot of proposals at the moment for masts which is quite worrying," he said.

Prospective independent county councillor John Walker said: "The mobile phone companies seem to be grouping the masts all together in this area but the people won't put up with this, it is not something we want on our back doorstep."

Mast plan discussed

THE fourth planning application for a telecommunications mast and base station on land at Belvedere and Caldervale Sports Club at Holden Road, Reedley, is up for discussion by Pendle Council's Brierfield and Reedley Committee on Tuesday.

The application is for a 17.5m monopole mast with six antennae, three cabinets, associated equipment and a compound to be sited between the two rugby pitches.

The telecom company, O2 (UK) Ltd, plans to replace two of the existing three floodlight columns, which stand on a banking between the sports pitches, and utilise the monopole to take the floodlights at their current height, 15m.

The application, the third by O2, has met with a storm of protests, despite the company having submitted a "certificate of compliance with accepted standards of safety in respect of radio frequency emissions" with its application.

More than 80 letters of protest have been received by Pendle's planning department together with a petition containing 201 signatures.

Between them they list 38 different points of objection, including reference to the Stewart report stating children should not be exposed to mobile phone microwaves, other health issues, the high visibility of the mast, closeness to homes, possibility of vandalism, intrusion into the landscape, and the fact that mobile phone masts should not be put on sports fields used by children.

Planning officer Kathryn Hewertson has recommended refusal on planning grounds that "the proposed mast by virtue of its size, appearance and bulk would represent an alien, intrusive and incongruous feature in the landscape close to a number of public vantage points and residential properties to the detriment of visual and residential amenity".

The telecom company says there is a need for better telecommunications coverage in the Reedley/North Burnley area.

Für einen Euro in die Grauzone

"Wohlfahrtsverbände nutzen Hartz IV, um Personalnot zu lindern: Allein bei den Samaritern sollen 50 Arbeitslose Zivi-Lücke schließen und Pfleger entlasten. Doch der Grad zwischen Beschäftigungstherapie und Arbeitsplatzverdrängung ist schmal…". Artikel von Eva Weikert in der taz-Hamburg vom 7.April 2005.

Club-Komfort vom Jobcenter

"Am Falckensteiner Strand soll in diesem Sommer eine Art Club-Atmosphäre den Aufenthalt noch angenehmer machen. Kein Reiseveranstalter, sondern das Kieler Jobcenter hat sich das preisgünstige Angebot mit Kinderbetreuung, Beachvolleyball oder Sonnenschirmverleih ausgedacht. Hinter dem Projekt "Strand-Gut" verbirgt sich der Plan, Ein-Euro-Jobbern eine sinnvolle Beschäftigung zu geben, von der auch Strandbesucher etwas haben." Für alle, die mal "so richtig Baden gehen wollen", gerne mit Förmchen spielen, glauben, dass 1-€-Jobs zusätzlich sind, nähere Informationen in einem Artikel von Jürgen Küppers in den Kieler Nachrichten vom 6.April 2005.

Proteste gegen Ein-Euro-Jobs

Interessenvertretung für Ein-Euro-Jobber. Bundes-Arbeitsrichter hält Arbeitskämpfe "arbeitnehmerähnlich Beschäftigter" für rechtlich möglich

"Gewerkschaften lehnen Ein-Euro-Jobs arbeitsmarktpolitisch zumeist ab. In Hamburg könnte sich ver.di trotzdem bald dazu durchringen, eine Interessenvertretung für die "Arbeitsgelegenheiten" zu gründen. Nach wochenlangen Beratungen hat der Hamburger Erwerbslosenrat der Gewerkschaft ver.di am Mittwochabend die Bildung einer Interessenvertretung für Hamburgs Ein-Euro-Jobber beschlossen. Gleichzeitig beschloss das Gremium, dem Vertreter verschiedener Arbeitslosengruppen angehören, einen Antrag an den ver.di-Landesbezirksvorstand, Tarifverhandlungen für die Ein-Euro-Jobber aufzunehmen…" Artikel von Andreas Grünwald in ND 08.04.05 //www.nd-online.de/artikel.asp?AID=70076&IDC=42

RESIDENTS' FURY AT PHONE MAST PLAN

FURIOUS families are protesting against plans to site a second mobile phone mast near their homes.

More than 100 people in the York Avenue and Dene Terrace areas of Jarrow have signed a petition objecting to the controversial proposal.

They were still reeling from being told mobile phone company Orange has been given permission to put up a mast when they heard rival firm Vodafone is planning another. Now the residents have redoubled their efforts to stop the second mast going ahead.

"I'm really disappointed with the whole situation," said Michael Fay, of Dene Terrace. "People living around here really are horrified. "These things are an eyesore and it makes me angry that the decision has been made by the Secretary of State, who has no interest in the area and has probably never even visited it. "We have received lots of support not only from local residents, but also from people who use the area every day and who are totally opposed to plans to put up another mast."

Neighbour Mary Harrison, 71, added: "I think it's appalling. They only put one up a couple of weeks ago, and now there's going to be another one. "Not only are they unsightly, but it's also suspected they can cause damage to people's health. It's disgusting this is happening again."

South Tyneside Council confirmed the reason that two masts are to be sited so close together is because both Orange and Vodafone want to serve the surrounding area. "The preference is to put masts in industrial areas," said a spokesman. "However, because of the location of industrial areas, they're not always certain to get coverage. "Therefore mobile phone companies often need to put their masts in non-industrial or residential areas, where they use slimmer masts.

"The council has to make a judgement on the siting and appearance of mobile phone masts, and consider the visual impact on surrounding areas. "In terms of health concerns, Government guidance states that if a proposed mast meets the international health safety guidelines, local authorities in processing applications should not consider the health effects further." Current laws state that planning officials cannot block applications on the grounds of health and safety alone.

National campaign group Mast Sanity gave advice to those protesting to object plans as soon as possible. It also urged nearby schools and nurseries to get involved, which can lend more weight to an argument.

South Tyneside (Shields Gazette)

Council not to blame over masts

Bromley Council has recently been on the receiving end of some criticism both directly and in the local press about the way we have been dealing with mobile phone masts.

I, together with all my colleagues, fully appreciate the impact such masts can have on the amenity and feelings of local people. The planning rules and guidance issued by central government are however extremely complicated and undoubtedly confusing; in short they are a mess and I will do my best to explain.

"There are three categories of procedure: "

1. Those that require planning permission; these are dealt with on their planning merits, local residents are consulted and their views taken into account. Only if amenity is not harmed and they are within government safety guidelines do the council contemplate granting them. All too often the council, having refused them, are overruled by government inspectors on appeal.

2. Those that are ‘permitted development’ but require ‘prior approval’ over siting and design. Again local residents are consulted and the above comments apply.

3. Those that are of an allegedly ‘minor nature’ and these do not require council permission. Consultation is not undertaken by the council but this is left to the telecommunications operator.

The recent local controversy concerning two masts with six antennae being erected on the shops/flats in Westmoreland Place falls into the latter category. Unfortunately, the message seems to have been widely circulated in the areas that in some way the council is at fault or is to blame.

For this type of mast, the facts are clear. No application has to be submitted to the council, the council is therefore not in a position to notify local residents, no council consent is required and there is no right of appeal.

The council can only withdraw the ‘permitted development’ entitlement in specified exceptional circumstances which rarely apply.

I do sympathise with local residents but the problem does not lie at the council's door; it is about time the government and telecommunications operators got their act together and started engaging the public.

For my part I will be pressing the government to alter the legislation to bring all such matters under planning control so that the public can be properly consulted.

Bamberg-Ost macht Menschenkette

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren von der Presse, liebe BIs, liebe Interessierte, liebe Betroffene

Mobilfunk geht uns alle an!

Demonstration gegen sieben Antennen in unserer Nachbarschaft, auf den Dächern der Otto-Friedrich-Universität, Bamberg, Feldkirchenstraße 21, am Freitag, den 15. April 2005, Beginn: 10.30 Uhr

Bilden einer Menschenkette um das Dientzenhofer-Gymnasium

Hintergrund:

Die Deutsche Funkturm GmbH hat bei der Universität Bamberg wegen dem Dach der Feldkirchenstraße 21 angefragt. Sie will einen Basisstation mit sieben Antennen installieren. Der Rektor, Prof. Dr. Rupert, nannte kürzlich öffentlich seine Entscheidungskriterien unter denen er bereit sein wird, den Verrag zu unterzeichnen. Ein Kriterium ist das, dass der Stadtrat nun entscheiden soll, ob das Gebiet drumrum zu den sog. "Sensiblen Bereichen" gehört. In nur kurzem Abstand von ca. 40 Metern befinden sich der Kindergarten St. Franziskus (2 Gruppen), Kindergarten Jean-Paul (3 Gruppen), die Heidelsteiggrundschule mit demnächst rund 300 Schülern und das Dientzenhofer-Gymnasium mit 1500 Schülern und 100 Lehrern. Im Bereich über 100 Meter befinden sich noch weitere Einrichtungen wie Kindergärten, Sozialstation und Pflegestation und ein Wohnheim für Behinderte.

Die Menschenkette soll der Öffentlichkeit - dem Stadtrat - nochmals signalisieren, dass es sich hier um ein sensibles Gebiet handelt. Die Aktion wird unterstützt von der Heidelsteigschule und der Bürgerinitiative Mobilfunk-STOPP, Bamberg-Ost. Kontaktadressen sie unten.

Ich bitte um Mobilisierung in Ihrem Bekanntenkreis, Eurer BI, der Nachbarschaft, etc. Die Dauer wird rund eine Stunde sein - ich finde, 60 Minuten sollten uns die vielen Betroffenen und vor allem Kinder wert sein. Kommen Sie dazu, bringen Sie gerne Transparente und Photoapparate mit, sprechen Sie Redakteure der Presse, Film und Photographen an, sofern Sie Kontakt haben. Es ist für die Motivation der Schülerinnen und Schüler auch wichtig, wenn sie Mitmacher und Zuschauer bekommen. Wir hoffen auf viele Menschen und Presse.

PS: am 20. April findet ab 14.30 Uhr im Rathaus Maxplatz eine öffentliche Stadtratssitzung statt, die vielleicht eine wichtige Entscheidungshürde bezüglich "Umgang mit Mobilfunk in Bamberg" ist. Es kommen 2-3 externe Referenten, die über Baurecht und Netzplanung vor dem Stadtrat referieren. Die Sitzung ist, wie alle Stadtratssitzungen, öffentlich, man kann einfach reingehen und auch rausgehen, wenn man weg muss.

Kontaktadressen:
Dientzenhofer-Gymnasium: Herr Fuchs, Herr Wagner, Frau Krug, Tel: 93239-0
Heidelsteigschule: Herr Conrad, Frau Weber, Tel 93542-0

It IS Patently Obvious--review well...this is about energy technology that Bush do not DARE talk about because it is highly damaging...probable that this tech responsible for 30% of malpractice suits in the last ten years, and you can expect 25% off your life because of this tech being tested by a foreign power on America...

The wanton Human Experimentation that has happened since Bush locked in his hold over America, and though there are many nay sayers, it is assured, by reviewing the list below that the nay sayers are simply ignorant. Do not fret though, ignorance does not exempt them from the deletrious effects of this macro energy experimentation--the nay sayers can expect 25%+ off their lives too, and this is just the beginning. This list below is only the latter half of the list entire, followed by a selection from the eastlund patent of haarp:

Toxic plume threatens project

Illustrates the challenges facing those who wish to reclaim land damaged by the United States military (the US military is the world's biggest polluter). -Shiela

From: Lenny Siegel <lsiegel@cpeo.org>
Subject: [CPEO-MEF] "New" Ft. Ord (CA) plume
To: Military Environmental Forum <military@list.cpeo.org>

[This significance of the discovery of a new TCE plume at Ft. Ord goes well beyond the impact on the proposed development and the potential risks to public health. It points out, once again, either how difficult it is to characterize fully contamination at major military bases or how poorly current characterization practices are. The same thing happened at Moffett Field. After years of facility-wide investigations, a new plume of volatile organic compounds was found. This bodes ill for armed service plans to shift cleanup responsibility to private entities, particularly for the upcoming round of base closures. Private parties and their insurance companies will be unwilling to accept property where new toxic plumes might be discovered, or they will make more financial demands to protect against the risk. - LS]

I subscribe to Republican & Democratic Internet Groups where I constantly read posts which tend to "attack" their opposites. Yes, some, if not most, can be justifiable.

But, it has not been until I heard the disclosures being presented below, that I have come to realize the degree to which "the powers that be", ON BOTH SIDES of the political spectrum, want to keep constituents fighting among each other.

This time, YOU MUST make the time to learn what has been really going on so that we ALL can realize - Republicans & Democrats (and third parties) - that we are not each other's enemy...and not even most in our constitutional government.

Finally, I have come across a genuine bipartisan report that could be be the catalyst for reversing the polarization that has gripped the citizens of our nation.

THIS MUST BE PASSED ON TO CONSTITUENTS OF ALL POLITICAL PERSUASIONS

Sadistic Sealing Captain Whines about Harassment


Captain Paul Watson received a call from CBC in Newfoundland today asking for his reaction to allegations by sealing captain Rendell Genge that he is receiving death threats by phone.

Rendell Genge is the sealing captain who is shown in pictures and in video violently attacking Farley Mowat crewmembers on the ice floes in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The crewmembers who were assaulted have requested that criminal charges be laid against Captain Genge and his crew.

Captain Watson's response was, "Any phone calls received by Captain Genge are of no concern or business of mine. None of us have made any threats towards him or his crew nor have we, nor would we advocate that such threats be made. If indeed threats have been made, this is a matter for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to investigate. They can determine if a crime has been committed or not. Captain Genge's problems are his business. My only business with Captain Genge is the fact that he is a barbaric baby seal slaughtering sadist and he violently assaulted members of my crew with a deadly weapon. I think the man is simply attempting to distract from his own criminal behavior by making accusations against people concerned for protecting the seals."

Captain Watson has added, "You know when you engage in criminal activity, when you are filmed assaulting people and inflicting pain and death on defenseless animals, you are going to make many people angry. Serial killers get threatening phone calls and child molesters get threatening phone calls so I don't think it is unusual that baby seal serial killers get threatening phone calls."

Report from the Farley Mowat

March 31st, 2005

0930 Hours AST 0530 PST

Position: 46 Degrees 47 Minutes 59 Seconds North
61 Degrees 44 Minutes 29 Seconds West
25 Miles South of the Magdalens
30 Miles Northwest of Cape Breton Island , Nova Scotia

A Truly Wonderful Perfect Storm

It is the last day of March and the wind is roaring like a lion, the ice pressure continues to build, visibility is severely limited, the temperature continues to drop and the crew of the Farley Mowat are very contented.

We love this storm and the havoc it is causing to the sealing fleet. The entire armada of sealing vessels, a fleet that numbered close to one hundred on Monday is now scattered, shattered, and scurrying to the closest port.

"It's not worth it b'ye, these seals ain't worth this!," one sealer was overheard saying to another on the radio.

The Canadian Coast Guard has been working through the night rescuing one sealing vessel after another.

The crew of the Farley Mowat are sitting in the middle of this panic circus, enjoying every minute of this storm.

"This is the perfect storm," said First Cook Jonny Vasic. "This is the second day made safe for the seals from the barbarians on those vessels. The seals seem happy and I'm happy for them."

It is of course incredible that these vessels were allowed to come out into these elements. The boats used by the sealers are all within the fifty to seventy foot range and their hulls were not built to withstand such ice pressure. The Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans, in their lust to have the seals killed, have placed these vessels and their crew in dire peril. It appears that anyone with a boat was given a license and permission to go out and slaughter seals.

"This is the same government that wanted us to cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i’ on every certificate and accused us of not having a proper ship and crew to go to the ice," said Captain Paul Watson .
"Yet here we are safe and seaworthy as the entire sealing fleet lies in disarray around us. If they were really concerned about safety and not so much about harassing us, the bureaucrats would have been more careful about what types of vessels they authorized to go to this free-for-all-slaughter on the ice."

As the sealers scramble to return to port, the crew of the Farley Mowat are filming seals and sending dive crews under the ice to film the seals beneath the surface.

"I love this place," said Laura Dakin from Bermuda , "the seals are beautiful, this storm is incredibly welcome because it put a stop to the cruelty and the killing. I'm so glad we are here. I'm enjoying this immensely."

The wind and moving ice is pushing the Farley Mowat and many of the sealers away from the Magdalens towards the coast of Cape Breton Island .

Not many seals will die today.

Schwenkt die Swisscom um?

Elektrosmog: Die schlagzeilenträchtige Sendeanlage am Hirschberg soll mittels Biogeometrie entstört werden

Folgt auf das «Wunder von Hemberg» dasjenige vom Hirschberg? Der Ägypter Ibrahim Karim hat auch hier elektrosensiblen Menschen seine Hilfe zugesagt. Noch offen ist, ob sich die Swisscom an den Kosten einer wissenschaftlichen Begleitstudie beteiligen wird.

CHRISTOPH ZWEILI

Die «kosmische Formensprache» des Ägypters Ibrahim Karim polarisiert: Der Geschäftsführer der Vereinigung Elektrosmog-Betroffener Gigaherz.ch, Hans-Ulrich Jakob, beispielsweise nennt die «Biogeometrie» Humbug und Zauberei. Für eine Gruppe von elektrosensiblen Menschen in Hemberg war die Methode des diplomierten ETH-Architekten und Doktors der Wissenschaften aber Heilmittel im Kampf gegen die Umweltverstrahlung.

Karim half vor zwei Jahren in der Hügelsiedlung einer Gruppe von Betroffenen, die über gesundheitliche Beschwerden geklagt hatte, nachdem die Swisscom im Herbst 2002 im katholischen Kirchturm eine Mobilfunkantenne in Betrieb genommen hatte. Die geplagten Anwohner gelangten an die Ombudsstelle Mobilkommunikation. Und die wiederum machte der Swisscom Karims Hilfsangebot schmackhaft. Wichtig zu wissen: Die Swisscom ist zusammen mit den Mobilfunkanbietern Orange und Sunrise Stiftungsgründerin der Ombudsstelle.

Gratisarbeit in Hemberg

In Hemberg hatte Karim noch Gratisarbeit geleistet, einen Aufwand, den der Ägypter gegenüber der Zeitschrift «Facts» mit 100 000 Franken und drei Monaten Zeit bezifferte. Er setzte von ihm entwickelte biogeometrische Figuren aus Holz und Plexiglas ein, welche von der Form her an gedrechselte Stuhlbeine erinnern. Damit will Karim zwölf verschiedene Störquellen außerhalb Hembergs und sieben im Kirchturm in positive Energie umgewandelt haben. Tatsächlich erklärten viele Betroffene danach, dass sie sich nun deutlich besser fühlten. Etwa Rosmarie Keller, deren Haus rund 100 Meter vom Kirchturm entfernt liegt und die unter massiven gesundheitlichen Störungen gelitten hatte. «Wir haben eigentlich erwartet, dass sich die Ombudsstelle Mobilkommunikation zum Vorreiter für die Biogeometrie macht, nachdem Swisscom allein im letzten Jahr geschätzte rund 60 Millionen Franken für Einsprachen aufwenden musste», sagt der grüne Flawiler Kantonsrat und Baubiologe Bosco Büeler. Doch der Telecom-Anbieter habe sich nach sieben Monaten aus dem Projekt verabschiedet, als Ibrahim Karim für seinen Aufwand entschädigt werden wollte, falls er Elektrosmog-Geplagte aus der ganzen Schweiz behandle.

Ohrensausen und Herzflattern

Zumindest einen zweiten Biogeometrie-Feldversuch wird es in der Ostschweiz geben. «Karim muss auch uns helfen», hatte Josef Mazenauer vom Hirschberg in Appenzell im Juni 2004 gefordert. Der pensionierte Schreinermeister und andere Anwohner leiden unter Symptomen wie Kopfweh, Ohrensausen, Zahnschmerzen und Herzflattern, die sie dem 150 Meter entfernten 79 Meter hohen Swisscom-Sendemast zuschreiben. Hier sind acht Mobilfunkantennen, vier Fernseh- und vier Radioantennen sowie eine Telepage-Antenne montiert. Karim hat Josef Mazenauer seine Hilfe fest zugesagt. Eine schulmedizinisch ausgelegte Begleitstudie über die Wirksamkeit der Biogeometrie, wie von Ibrahim Karim gewünscht, werde es auch am Hirschberg nicht geben, «weil derzeit mehrere juristische Verfahren laufen», teilte Claude Georges, Leiter Mobilkommunikation und Umwelt bei Swisscom, vor kurzem auf Anfrage mit.

Carlo Schmid will eine Lösung

Inzwischen ist offenbar dennoch Bewegung in die Sache gekommen. Der Innerrhoder Landammann Carlo Schmid nimmt die Probleme der Antennenanwohner ernst. So ernst, dass er Druck macht: Rund um die schlagzeilenträchtige Antenne soll endlich Ruhe einkehren. Schmid, der Geschäftsführer der Ombudsstelle Mobilkommunikation, Rolf Lüthi, und Swisscom-Vertreter Claude Georges treffen sich jetzt in Bern, um auszuhandeln, wie und unter welchen Bedingungen doch eine wissenschaftliche Begleitung des Biogeometrie-Einsatzes am Hirschberg möglich wird. Billig wird die Studie nicht: So sollen sich nebst den drei bis vier betroffenen Familien auch Vergleichspersonen in einem weiteren Umkreis sowie Landwirtschaftsexperten, Mediziner und Fachleute beteiligen, die die Strahlungswerte der Antenne messen - das vor und nach der Anwendung der Biogeometrie sowie bei abgeschalteter Antenne. Wer sich nach Details erkundigt, wird vertröstet: Man wolle die Verhandlungen nicht gefährden.

Broschüre zur Biogeometrie

Das «Wunder von Hemberg» ist inzwischen in einer 48-seitigen Broschüre beschrieben. Die Interessengemeinschaft für einen gesundheitsverträglichen Mobilfunkeinsatz (IGGMF), vertreten durch Bosco Büeler, dokumentiert darin die «Harmonisierung mit Biogeometrie». Die Ärztin Yvonne Gilli hat die körperlichen und psychischen Beschwerden bei rund einem Dutzend Betroffener bewertet. Herausgeber der Schrift ist Ibrahim Karim selbst, der auch die 40 000 Franken Druckkosten für die 2000 Exemplar starke Auflage trägt. «Die Broschüre ist als Fingerzeig zu verstehen, dass in Hemberg tatsächlich etwas geschehen ist», sagt Büeler. Aber eben: Dafür fehlt der wissenschaftliche Beweis.

Sprechstunde

Die Ombudsstelle Mobilkommunikation und Umwelt sieht sich mit gehäuften Anfragen aus der Ostschweiz konfrontiert. Sie gab letzte Woche die Lancierung einer unentgeltlichen ärztlichen Sprechstunde bekannt. Diese Untersuchung und Beratung elektrosensibler Menschen ist der Beratungsstelle des Instituts für Umweltmedizin am Kantonsspital Luzern angegliedert. (cz)

Holz und Plexiglas: Biogeometrie.

Kampf gegen Elektrosmog: Die Swisscom unterstützt ein umstrittenes Projekt.

Andreas Schmid

Ibrahim Karim steht auf dem Dorfplatz von Hemberg SG und stellt sorgfältig Holzkeulen und Glaskörper auf. Damit, sagt der ägyptische Naturwissenschaftler und diplomierte ETHArchitekt, harmonisiere er die Strahlung der nahen Mobilfunkantenne, damit die von Elektrosmog geplagten Anwohner wieder ruhig schlafen könnten.

Dass die Wirkung der so genannten Biogeometrie heftig umstritten ist, verwundert nicht. Umso mehr, dass die Swisscom unter Führung der Ombudsstelle Mobilkommunikation und Umwelt (OMK) und zusammen mit dem Kanton Appenzell einen Versuch mit Karims Methode lanciert.

Sein Erfolg in Hemberg SG, wo Karim in Gratisarbeit die störenden Strahlen umleitete (FACTS, 29/2004), hat die Verantwortlichen überzeugt. «Das gute Echo bei Anwohnern ist eine Tatsache», sagt OMK-Geschäftsführer Rolf Lüthi. Er möchte daher weiter mit Biogeometrie arbeiten. Begleitet von Ärzten, Physikern und Geologen soll Karim am Hirschberg die hohe Strahlenbelastung beseitigen, verursacht durch Mobilfunkantennen, den Sender Säntis und andere Radio- und TV-Antennen. «Ich will mit dem Projekt die Grundlage für eine gesamtschweizerische Lösung schaffen», sagt Karim.

Seit 2002 wehrt sich die Bevölkerung am Hirschberg gegen die Antennen. Doch niemand unternahm etwas. Die OMK rieb sich auf an Verhandlungen mit Verursachern und Betroffenen, die Telefongesellschaften wiesen die Verantwortung von sich: Man wolle nicht für Beeinträchtigungen aufkommen, die nicht der Mobilfunk verursache, argumentierte die Swisscom. Von dieser Haltung ist sie inzwischen abgerückt und beteiligt sich finanziell am Versuch in Hirschberg. Ob weitere Anbieter dem Beispiel folgen, ist zurzeit offen. Wie so vieles, denn Kosten, Dauer, Beginn und wissenschaftliche Begleitung sind noch nicht definiert.
