O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)
"Wi-Fi health advocates were exultant today at news that an Israeli TV documentary titled "How We are Killing Ourselves--Wireless Radiation" won a high rating and Haifi ordered Wi-Fi removed from all schools.
"The 30-minute documentary about the "epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity" (ES) aired at 9 p.m. April 12 and "received the highest rating of the day," according to Dafna Tachover, an attorney with offices in Israel and New York.
"She provided a link to the show to Wi-Fi health advocates in other countries noting that while the video is in Hebrew there are some interviews in English. [7'42" and 11'20"].
"Tachover said the director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century but after working with health advocates "understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public." It was then decided to do 30 minutes mainly on ES and Wi-Fi in schools. . . .
"Said Tachover: "Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not three percent of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends two to four hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplate committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told. Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity."
The mayor of Haifa (in Israel) ordered to disconnect Wi-Fi in schools and kindergartens - until examining the safety of Wi-Fi thoroughly
The third largest city in Israel has ordered immediate disconnect of WiFi in Kindergartens and Schools
" . . . This week, in coordination with the head of the city's education system, Ilana Truck, Yahav ordered to disconnect immediately the Wi-Fi in kindergartens and schools in Haifa until a thorough examination of the subject is done. These days the education system is preparing to gradually install wired system as an alternative in all education system in the city. These will be installed in the first stage in classrooms where pupils learn for the final exams that force use of computers, so they won't be harmed from the disconnect. The teachers in elementary schools in the city took on themselves to load every evening the studies material from the internet, so that pupils are not exposed and their studies won't be harmed. . . .

Is electro magnetic radiation from military radar destroying the coral reef near Kauai?
Representatives from Kauai's conservation community recently met with representatives from the Pacific Missile Range Facility to discuss concerns that electromagnetic radiation coming from the high-powered radar and antennas could be the cause of coral's decline.
PMRF has about 20 radar towers on North Kauai. They work by bouncing electromagnetic radiation off of things -- that's how they detect objects.
Electromagnetic radiation is composed of waves -- just as light is, except that electromagnetic radiation isn't visible to the human eye. According to scientific models, the radiation covers much of the northwest part of the island.
"If we could see the radiation like we can see light, the entire island would be lit up 24/7," Lilley said. "That's how much we're exposed to every day."
4th Edition Stop Smart Meters! Informative and comprehensive hand-out
Feb. 1st, 2016: StopSmartMeters.org has published the 2016 fourth edition (pdf) of our popular and educational smart meter awareness color brochures. What is a "Smart" Meter?
It is a new, wireless replacement for the old analog electric, gas and water meters on homes and businesses. Unlike an analog (electro-mechanical) meter, a "smart" meter is a surveillance device that monitors your "energy consumption behavior." It emits biologically destructive "pulsed" microwave radiation every few seconds into your home and neighborhood and may cause cancer, damage your DNA, harm wildlife, catch fire, and disable computers and appliances. People all across the USA and the world are concerned over these health, privacy and safety issues.
" . . . The 7,500 high-powered Wi-Fi kiosks proposed for New York City are a violation of civil rights, say critics. The kiosks are to be discussed Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. at an NYU facility in Brooklyn. The event should be shifted to New York."
" . . . The kiosks violate the Americans with Disabilities Act, the New York City Human Rights Law and the New York State Human Rights Law by subjecting citizens, including those with "sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation and many other medical conditions and pregnant women" to radiation, says the EMF Safety Network.
"Sandi Maurer, director of the EMF Safety Network, said "Environmental protections are insufficient to protect public health, children and nature" from what is a "new rapidly deployed technology."
"Wireless disrupts cellular communications, damages immune and nervous systems, desynchronizes brain and heart rhythms, and causes headaches, sleep problems, tinnitus, anxiety and a host of other health problems." She refers the public to bioinitiative.org.
"City officials who authorize this scheme would be committing Public Endangerment in the Second Degree," says EMF.
"Under NYC Human Rights Law, those with electromagnetic sensitivities and most medical conditions would not be able to heed the advice of their own physicians, it adds.
"If a hotspot is put on the street near a home or critical institution, many people will not be able to access the sidewalk to access the building in question without getting serious symptoms and violating doctors' orders," said EMF. . . .
Is there a connection between mold toxins that flourish in a water damaged indoor environment and electromagnetic radiation?
Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, characterized by wavelength or frequency. These fields are categorized as follows:
Ashland, Massachusetts Public Schools have implemented Wi-Fi Device "Best Practices" which include turning the Wi-Fi off when not in use and keeping devices on a table.
" . . . Based on its own review of the matter, the Ashland Public School District is reducing wireless radiation exposures to children by instituting district wide "best practices for mobile devices". Spurred by parent Cecelia Doucette's concerns about the lack of safety data on Wi-Fi and children, the district investigated the issue and developed a policy to substantially reduce wireless exposures to students and staff. Doucette not only brought the issue to the district's attention, but then also worked with state legislatures who introduced two bills concerning electromagnetic radiation this session. The Environmental Health Trust submitted written testimony on MA Senate Bill 1222 after expert scientists presented information on wireless health risks at a briefing at the Massachusetts State House in June 2015.
"Since wireless devices are constantly emitting radiation even when the user is not using the Internet, the instruction to "turn it off when not in use " stops the Wi-Fi antennas from continuously emitting radiation and is one simple way to reduce the radiation dose and exposure time for children and staff. . . .
"This ground breaking policy action by the Massachusetts school district is indicative of the wave of parents raising concerns about Wi-Fi across the country. Ashland, Massachusetts parent Cecelia Doucette wrote an article in Ashland Local Town Pages about these new best practices. Significant news and print media have picked the issue up after Massachusetts parents filed a lawsuit against a private boarding school alleging the school did not accommodate their 12-year-old child's diagnosed debilitating sensitivity to the school's WiFi system.
"Ashland is the first US public school to create such policy on wireless transmitting devices. However, this US Massachusetts school district now joins dozens of schools and governments that have already implemented even more stringent measures to reduce wireless exposure to children. For example, Israel and France have banned Wi-Fi in kindergarten. The European Union recommends wired Internet rather than wireless in schools.
"Right To Know" efforts by local governments are also moving across the United States. . . .
