Do you know any EHS children in the US, or know of a way to get in contact with someone who would know many?


I am working with wearethevidence.org on a list to get our government to recognize EHS people and their rights, but I need to work on getting a substantial number, like 5000.

 Initiator of first-in-nation “Best Practices” program for wireless to speak in Worcester 


     CeCe Doucette of Ashland, MA and Worcester resident, Leslie Saffer, will appear next week before the meeting of the Worcester School Committee’s Standing Committee on Teaching, Learning and Student Supports to address concerns/ solutions related to wireless devices and their infrastructure. Ms. Doucette is the initiator of Ashland Public Schools’ Best Practices for Mobile Devices, the first program of its kind in the nation. Ms. Saffer is a member of the Worcester Info Team for Health (WITH) which addresses associated issues. The meeting is open to the public and will take place Monday, October 17, at 5:30pm, 20 Irving Street, Room 410
The Worcester School Committee recently approved a proposal by Standing Committee Chair, Brian O’Connell and fellow member, John Monfredo, to allow the information to be heard on the 17th.  See video: 11:45 to 20:04 at:

     The October 17 presentations by the two women present decision makers and residents with a unique informational opportunity for accessing independent input to support making responsible, factually-informed decisions affecting public health.
Studies show children are among the most vulnerable populations within a rapidly rising radio-frequency-intense environment from ubiquitous wireless devices, resulting among other things, in DNA damage. Recently released preliminary findings from a years-long cell phone study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program prompted  the American Academy of Pediatrics to issue new recommendations “to reduce exposure to cell phones.”
http://www.releasewire.com/press-releases/american-academy-of-pediatrics-issues-new-recommendations-to-reduce-exposure-to-cell-phones-726805.htm
     In May of 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer/World Health Organization (WHO) classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as a Class 2B “possible” carcinogen. In May of 2015, Professor Martin Blank, Ph.D. of Columbia University, served as the spokesperson for a core of international scientists (updated figure: 221) calling on the United Nations, UN Member States and WHO to strengthen exposure guidelines. See: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=My5leLBbNqI
     Mr. O’Connell and Mr Monfredo have pursued learning more about the radio frequency issue following their meeting with the Worcester Info Team for Health,

prompting them to share the information with their colleagues. WITH takes an empowering, cooperative approach to this complex, multifaceted issue by sharing illuminating information from independent science sources while providing options for solutions.

Three different perspectives on the risks to children from Wi-Fi in school are shared in this podcast--a medical doctor and engineer deeply familiar with microwave-emitting technology, a school teacher of 9th grade Math who may be fired, possibly in retaliation for raising concern about Wi-Fi risks to children, and a long-time electromagnetic field researcher and health advocate.  [1 hour]

Wireless gigabit home Internet to Launch in Boston

Starry 1 Gigabit/sec wireless broadband will launch in Boston with no data caps.  Uses 30 Ghz millimeter wavelengths thus availability limited to locations that are "line-of-sight" to nearby rooftop-mounted base or access tower.  Its 30 Ghz signal apparently DOES go through walls to some extent.  This is suggested by an illustration on the Starry site.  https://starry.com/station

Scroll down to the picture of a home showing suggested locations for the "Starry Point" transceiver that makes your connection with the tower and is connected to your router.  You can distribute that service in the usual ways; by ethernet or by Wi-Fi frequencies.  But how will this affect birds, insects and ground critters?

New England Electric Rates to be Investigated

Transmission costs are 60% of an electric bill in the New England states.  40% or less in other parts of the country even though their populations are spread more widely. Infrastructure upgrades that are not means tested might be an explanation.  Such power lines have 9% to 12% rates of return.

Smart Meters Put Grid Security at Risk

by K.T. Weaver, SkyVision Solutions

Grid security is at risk according to an article today at GCN which provides information, insight and analysis to the Government IT and Education IT sectors.


“The technical issues that interrupted service for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Stock Exchange and United Airlines on July 8 illustrate how dependent the economy is on technology.  As IT staff worked to fix the problems, at least their computers and phones worked, and the lights and AC were on.  A failure of the electrical grid, on the other hand, would make the problems at the NYSE look like, well, just glitches.”

Charging Devices with WiFi microwaves

A new case for the iPhone was released in late April, 2015 that can supplement the charge on the phone's battery by harvesting cell phone RF, converting it to a small but significant DC current.  Soon you'll be able to charge phones, tablets and other portable devices wirelessly with the RF from your WiFi router:  With a software patch, It will transmit charging waves during the breaks between data packets or during network inactivity.  You will be continually impinged upon with microwaves but who cares?  You won't need to look for a charger anymore :

New iPhone case harvests RF from the air to Run the Phone:  30% more battery life

FM stereo receivers, CB and shortwave radios were the electronics of the early 70s.  Their sensitivity was specified in so many microvolts.  Our grandparents used crystal sets to receive local stations on tiny earphones.  Who would ever have thought there was so much RF energy in the air?  Most of it comes from the phone itself but placing near a WiFi router was said to increase yield.  They plan to later come out with an external panel that will charge batteries - maybe even run your house like solar panels - but on RF waves! :

Utility Sales May Drop by Half as Homes Make Their Own Power

One of the downsides is that utilities will need to find additional ways to charge for maintaining the grid infrastructure despite the projected loss of revenue.  One way is to assess solar generating customers for line use or transmission of what they generate and sell back into the grid.

Seattle’s First EMF-Reduced Homes Debut in the Central District



TV show features character with Electro Magnetic Sensitivity
      There has been discussion of the new TV show "Better Call Saul" with the character, Chuck, who suffers from extreme "EHS."
      The show is Mondays, at 10pm on AMC (or on demand online provided you subscribe to AMC on cable). 
      AMC archives episodes for a while. They're all still up. Episode 1 is available for another week or so:
http://www.amctv.com/full-episodes/better-call-saul

      Episode 3 is the only one that did not feature the ES character.  To contact AMC: 

http://www.amctv.com/contact

      Episode (#5) was seriously intense.  The ES character had a totally traumatic visit from the cops, and ended up in the hospital with a skeptical doctor.  It was finally confirmed by name that his condition is Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. This time he was featured in two major segments, almost 20 minutes total, almost half the show.  Substantial coverage of the issue.
