5G Controversy – Need Safer Technology Not No technology

I have chosen to publish this article (received as email, Don’t know who wrote it) as I believe there is a lot of truth in it. My concern is for the future of the unborn child and young adults. I believe there is still a lot of study needs to be done on the introduction of 5G into our lives. Right now I am living right underneath an antenna so am about to get a device to read the level of the electro magnetic field in this apartment. I should have actually got a reading before they connected the system but I had not read much about the  cons of 5G. Please read these articles especially if you have young children it may save their lives for the future.

RARE EARTH COSTS

It has been estimated by industry that more than 1,050,000 tonnes copper, 24,500 tonnes silver, 2,100 tonnes gold (worth AU$141 billion) and 98 tonnes palladium will be extracted to manufacture 5G phones. Lithium ion batteries require cobalt, most of which is mined in the Congo by 40,000 children from age 6, some work 24 hours a day. Many die from suffocation, landslides or are buried alive in tunnels.

Ask yourself – is it really worth destroying fragile ecosystems and all life on this planet for the sake of internet speeds up to 1,000 times faster than 4G and being able to download 30 movies a second?

ARPANSA

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) set the standard for exposure to radio frequency radiation (RFR) and claim 5G network frequencies are safe. But their studies are outdated, exclude a full review of the literature and are based on thermal (heating) effects on a plastic head. They ignore non- thermal effects. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies non- ionising RF emitting devices (cell/cordless phones/base stations, wi-fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, baby monitors) with non-thermal effects as a Class 2B human carcinogen. ARPANSA’s standards are 100 times higher than China or Russia!

PROPERTY VALUES

A survey conducted in 2014 by the National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy (NISLAPP) in Washington, D.C. showed that 94% said a nearby cell tower would negatively impact interest in a property or the price they would be willing to pay for it.

POWER USAGE

It’s been estimated that 5G/IoT will have a large carbon footprint and is predicted to use 1/5th of all global electricity by 2025.

SOCIAL IMPACTS

Already many people are addicted to their phones, taking them to bed, looking at the screens when with friends, texting while driving etc. Depression, suicide and anxiety are on he rise. What kind of social impact will virtual reality have on human relationships?

MORATORIUM ON 5G

Various counties/councils around the world have banned/called for a ban or placed a moratorium on 5G (Devon, U.K.; Brussels, Belgium; Germany; Rome, Italy; Geneva, Switzerland; San Francisco). Contact local councillors + M.P. demanding a moratorium.

STOP A 5G TOWER

The most powerful method to stop a tower is to follow the Broomhall Method-see http://www.emrlegaleducation.com

STOP 5G In Your shire

THE DARK SIDE OF 5G TECHNOLOGY

While touted as the answer to all our problems and bringing speeds 100-1000 x faster than 4G, we need to look at the big picture of what life would be like with 5G.

4G VERSUS 5G

Microwaves are a form of radio frequency radiation (RFR) with wavelengths ranging from about 1m to 1mm with frequencies between 300 MHz and 300 GHz.

4G is 4GHz or 4 billion wavelengths pulsing every cell of your body a second, impacting your nervous and endocrine systems, your brain, heart and all your organs. 5G is millimeter wave up to 100GHz (100 billion wavelengths, therefore much worse). 5G is extremely high frequencies (EHF) and because millimetre waves only travel short distances, there needs to be a dense network of 5G cells, typically. Even so, these EHF are blocked by buildings and even trees. As a result millions of trees all around the world are being chopped down so 5G can work. Millimeter waves were invented by the U.S. military as Active Denial Systems (non lethal) for crowd dispersal by heating the top surface of the skin to make it feel like it’s burning.

IMPACT ON HUMAN HEALTH

Hundreds of scientists and doctors around the world are strongly speaking out against the roll-out of 5G, which has zero safety testing. The International 5G Space Appeal has 165,924 signatories (doctors, scientists, environmental organisations and citizens) from 205 nations and territories as of October 17th, 2019.

There are tens of thousands of studies showing biological harm from 1-4G such as increase in free radicals and cancer risk, genetic (DNA) damage, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, damage to cells, organs, heart, diabetes, the endocrine system etc. so 5G will be far greater.

Many people have become severely affected by microwave radiation from phones, wifi and cell towers and have escaped to the bush to live primitively without any modern conveniences. This number is growing all around the world.

In Sweden electro-hypersensitivity syndrome (EHS) is considered a disability and those affected are granted disability pensions. Unfortunately that has not yet happened in Australia.

IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, there will be unprecedented environmental change on a global scale. No person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today, with no possibility of escape anywhere on the planet. There is abundant evidence of harm to diverse plant and wildlife including ants, birds, bees, frogs, insects, rodents, mammals, plants, trees, microbes.

These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems. The planned density of radio frequency transmitters is impossible to envisage. In addition to millions of new 5G base stations on Earth and 20,000 new satellites in space, 200 billion transmitting objects, according to estimates, will be part of the Internet of Things by 2020, and one trillion objects a few years later.

NUREMBERG CODE

The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law. The Nuremberg Code is considered the most important document in the history of clinical research ethics affecting global human rights. Informed consent has been accepted and constitutes Article 7 of the U.N. International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which prohibits medical and scientific experimentation without consent.

SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM

The purpose of 5G is not just faster internet speeds but also to usher in the Internet of Things (IoT) where ‘smart’ household appliances, cars etc ‘talk’ to each other. Our highways will be ‘smart’ and wirelessly charge our self-driving car and our phones. Your fridge will tell you if your cheese is off, your toothbrush how well you are brushing etc. Ultimately it will usher in artificially intelligent robots. ‘Smart’ cities with ubiquitous wi-fi will help you find a parking spot, CCTV cameras with facial recognition will track your every move and cities will have virtual fencing.

Drones will deliver your mail, repair public assets, assist ambulances and track individuals. Nobody will be able to escape this dangerous microwave radiation, even in rainforests, mid-ocean and the Antarctic. Virtual Reality will be the new entertainment. Radio Frequency ID (RFID) chips and antennas will be inserted into not only our clothing and products (white goods, food etc) we buy, but also our bodies. Global surveillance will know everything about your lifestyle, shopping habits, political and religious views, social life, finances etc. Goodbye privacy.

 

Here is some more information that is worth listening too. I believe it is worth fighting for safer technology not no technology

13 Toxic Phrases You Should NEVER Say To Your Kid

291268-t.jpg

As a a young mother I did not have a computer or that much contact with the outside world as we were in remote areas. Plus My Mum and Dad were thousands of miles away so my experience of Mother Hood was zilch I just did the best that I knew how like most of us.

I always love the lesson I learnt from observing, was to hug my children as much as I could (That I learnt from a friend as I did not experience that with my parents). 

To tell them that you love them as much as you can (That also I did not learn from my parents. In fact when I call my Mum who is 96 I always end the call with “Love You Mum”. I have never ever heard her return “I love you too”. She just not know how. Kinda Sad I think. That generation found it hard to be demonstrative )

The other thing I have learnt is that when you walk into the room a child will always look at your face to see the greeting, so always make sure your face is filled with delight at the sight of them.

This is an article written by Samantha Darby for Romper.

I could have written this article myself being a mother of two but Samantha has done a great job writing this article and probably a better job than me.

So this article is one that all new Mothers should read because we do make mistakes and maybe if we ‘Knew better we would do better’. 

Thinking twice before saying these phrases to our children may be the kindest thing we can do for them.

 

 

1. “Stop Crying.”

If your child is crying, then they are upset. Sure, it’s frustrating that the reason they’re crying is because you gave them the exact snack they asked for, but kids are kids. How many times have you, as an adult, burst into tears over nothing? Telling your children to stop crying is telling them that the way they process their emotions isn’t OK.

2. “Just Let Me Do It.”

Watching your 3-year-old try to zip his own jacket with mittens on is hard, I know. Especially when they are insistent on doing it on their own. But the phrase “just let me do it” can be damaging. Instead, ask them if they need help or ask if you can show them a trick to making it easier.

3. “I Don’t Like You Right Now.”

Kids are going to do some terrible things. They’re going to make giant messes, they’re going to throw tantrums, they’re going to act out when you ask them to do something — it’s all normal. And sure, there will come a point when you think, “I don’t even like my own kid right now.” But you can’t say that to your little mini-me. Instead, tell them you don’t like the way they are acting or the way they are speaking.

4. “You Have No Reason To Be Upset.”

How do you know? I once got upset because I lost one of my child’s boots in Target and cried the whole way home. I felt like an idiot, but I had my reason for crying, and so does your child. They have every right to be upset about something and, often, the reason they’re upset may be something normal like they’re exhausted or hungry. (Seriously, if anyone knows the life of a child being hangry, it’s my kid and me.)

5. “Only Babies Act Like That.”

This phrase covers a whole range of situations. I’ve heard parents say this to older children crying, to big kids having accidents, and even to preschoolers who are over-tired. It’s belittling, end of story.

6. “I Sacrifice A Lot For You.”

Lots of mommy martyrs like to use this one. Of course you sacrifice a lot; you’re a mother. But your children didn’t ask to be here. They didn’t ask you to have them. Reminding them that you sacrifice a lot for them makes you the queen of guilt trips and can make your children feel like they owe you something for being a mother.

7. “Leave Me Alone.”

We all need quiet time as parents, but you should say that instead. “Mommy needs a little break.” “Mommy is going to have some alone time.”

8. “I Never Get Time To Myself.”

Again, sanctimommy words. There’s literally no reason to say this to your child. You’re going to make them feel bad if they’re old enough to process that statement, or you’re just putting it in their head that they are a nuisance.

9. “Stop Asking Me Questions.”

It’s annoying, I know. But you want your kids to be curious. You want them to question their surroundings, to ask you about things they hear and see.

10. “Get Over It.”

You’re basically telling your child that their feelings don’t matter and that they need to hurry up and move past a situation. Unfair.

11. “It’s Not A Big Deal.”

But everything is a big deal to kids. Literally, everything. If they finish a puzzle, if their ice cream cone falls to the floor, and seeing a giraffe at the zoo — all enormously big deals.

12. “Don’t Be So ___.”

Shy. Bratty. Rude. Talkative. Loud. This is your child. They are going to do things and say things and sometimes you’re not going to like it. But telling them not to be something doesn’t help. You can ask them to “be more grateful” instead of saying, “don’t be so rude.” It’s all about positive reinforcement.

13. “I Don’t Care.”

Whether it’s about their friend at recess that ate a wood chip or that they are now a Buzz fan instead of Woody, it’s important to them. It’s important that they share things with you, that they ask you what you think. They want you to be just as excited as they are, so muttering that you don’t care makes them feel like their thoughts are pointless. If you don’t care, why should anyone else?

This Picture Is So Powerful – The Toughest Will Think Twice

When I saw this picture, immediately I saw the power in it. I was not a perfect Mother, I am sure there is none that exists, but we do the best we know how or we love by the examples we have been shown. I remember a program on TV one day; I think it may have been on the Oprah Show, about how when you walk in the room a child will look at your face to see what greeting he or she will get. That has always stuck in my mind so I make sure my face says to my grandchildren when I greet them, how I am so happy to see them.

It is not always parents that we can learn from. As a child I was brought up in a very strict, firm environment. We knew our parents loved us but they did not actively show it by loving words or physical affection. The love was shown mainly in the way we were disciplined. I learnt to physically show love to my kids in the way of hugs and telling them I loved them from one of my bosses. She had a souvenir business that I managed part-time and she brought her children to work with her every day right from the time she left the hospital. Those children were smothered with hugs and kisses every day, which was, I guess fascinating and surprising to me. It was beautiful, from then I decided that, that is what I would do with my children.

My son shows the same affection to his children. For me, the big brute still give me a hug and kiss on the forehead at the age of 40 for no reason just to say they love me. To me that is beautiful.

So when I saw this picture it made me sad because I have seen examples of it and sometimes parents don’t even realize what they are doing to a beautiful soul.

Your words have power… use them wisely.

How Beautiful is A Mothers Love

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”

Rajneesh

I just loved these pictures and very befitting the quote

Saving Tip For Today

This tip is not about saving money it is a tip to help keep your children safe.

I read this tip today and thought what a great idea it is and am passing it on to you.

And the tip is:- Agree on a code word that your children know. If someone comes to pick them up but does not know the code word they should not go with them.

Living Under The Same Roof

Are the kids showing no sign of leaving home?

Maybe they flew the nest only to find that the cost of rent, food, study fees and maybe a broken romance gave them the excuse to return to the fold.

I have been there. I love my children very much but their return to home was not as enjoyable as it seemed to them. My privacy went out the door and peace and quiet. I did though put down some rules which I stuck to. It made my life a lot less confrontational and they knew that the rules were written in stone never to be broken.

The rules were:-

  • Rent/Board « They had to pay rent of a set amount each week. There was no cash handouts to accommodate their lifestyle. No money « no play.
  • Money tip « Use their rent/board to put towards your mortgage or superannuation.
  • Food and Bills « The extra needed to pay electricity, food and water can add up and hit the hip pocket, when your costs should be reduced. You need to calculate what the extra cost is going to be and your lodger child should contribute to the kitty as he would if he lived with a flatmate.
  • Money tip« Insist on a set amount they pay each week towards all the costs of running the house.
  • Using the car « It is a money pit to be running your children everywhere or allowing them to use your car without putting in fuel or pay any of the running costs. Don’t even start this habit, be very consistent about them paying for fuel and costs.
  • Tempting but don’t give in.
  • Money Tip « Set a limit on the kilometres they can drive each week. Once that has been reached they can use public transport or use a friend. Insist they pay for the fuel they use, part of the insurance and maintenance.
  • Downsizing « Moving to smaller house, duplex or semi can be a way of reducing your cost of living. Keeping a larger house so that the adult children can be accommodated may result in you paying a lot more living expenses than necessary.
  • Money Tip « Consider selling your family house and moving to a smaller place.
  • Move out time « If you allow your adult children to sponge off you and not pay their share of expenses then it is likely to delay your retirement plans. If you keep propping up your children’s lifestyle it will lead them to poor money handling habits. It could lead them to a habit of living in debt as they are used to a standard of living with you that they could not afford on their own.
  • Money Tip « Give your children a deadline to move out. 6 – 12 months is a good time. Empower your children.
