Royal Canadian Police Summoned on Wi-Fi Threat

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

A comprehensive talk by Jerry Flynn on the effects of EMF radiation from smart phones, wireless computers, routers and antennas, smart meters, etc. Jerry Flynn is a retired Captain in the Communications Electronics Engineering Branch of the Canadian Armed Forces.  

"RCMP, also known as "the Force" and the "Mounties," is a federal national police force that works on a contract basis with three territories, eight provinces, 190 municipalities, 184 aboriginal communities and three international airports.

"Flynn this week called on the Public Health Agency of Canada to direct RCMP "to conduct a criminal investigation into Canada's radio frequency and extremely low frequency scientific community beginning with Health Canada's radiation protection bureau."

Tech Safety Poster

Langley Student Wins Tech Safety Poster Contest

"We are extremely pleased with Charrisa Leung's painting and how she covered all the points we were looking for. This poster will create awareness for Langley Fine Art students, teachers and parents and hopefully encourage other schools to create Tech Safety poster contests of their own. Soon schools will be moving in the direction of best practices for mobile devices just as Ashland public schools have created to follow manufacturer distance recommendations." stated Susan McFee, President of Parent Advisory Council for Langley Fine Arts School. . . .

"RF may actually be a misnomer because the average person thinks of AM/FM radios when they hear the words "radio frequency" or RF energy. Cell phones, tablets and laptops sit in the microwave wireless radiation segment of the electromagnetic spectrum and it may be more accurate to call them microwave wireless radiation devices."

Berkeley, Calif's "right to know law" went into effect last Monday. This law requires retailers to post a statement about the possible consequences of wearing a cellphone on your body, the same information that is contained in manuals. The cell phone industry is still fighting. Why aren't retailers in Canada required to show similar warnings on labels or signs? People have a right to know.

WI-FRIED?

Catalyst - ABC Australia

The Australian ABC program, Catalyst, televised a program (30 min) on the dangers of microwave radiation. Very good watching. A video that should be shared widely. VIDEO

Could wifi-enabled devices be harmful to our health? You cannot see it or hear it but Wi-Fi blankets our homes, our schools and our cities. Australia's safety agency says there's no evidence of harm, but that's not the same as saying its safe. A growing number of scientists are concerned that the widespread use of Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-enabled devices could be slowly making us sick. In this Catalyst investigation, Dr Maryanne Demasi explores whether our wireless devices could be putting our health at risk.

Maryanne Demasi is presenter/producer on ABC's Catalyst program. This is her response to the outcry regarding her report about Wi-Fi
