Autodistruzione dei sistemi 'smart' ?!

Chissà se Wifi imploderà da solo ...?! 

qui uno degli articoli recenti che riportano la grande preoccupazione americana dei 'buchi' riconosciti nel software openaccess che gestisce le connessioni 'smart'  e che permettono ad hackers di infilarsi nei sistemi delle aziende ! 

Non è la prima volta che queste preoccupazioni vengono riportate anche in congressi ... chissà se ...

Negli USA, a Los Angeles, viene riconosciuta incompatibilità tra wifi ed elettrosensibilità

Qui trovate la copia della comunicazione ufficiale del Distretto scolastico che autorizza un docente elettrosensibile a spegnere il Wifi in aula durante le sue lezioni .  Oppure a spostarsi un una scuola senza wifi.

E' importante questa decisione perché apre la porta ad altri casi.

MCS riconosciuta in Spagna

Carissimi Soci e Sostenitori di AMICA,
vi informiamo che è stata riconosciuta la MCS in Spagna, ovvero è stata inserita nella classificazione delle malattie ICD-10.
Questo è avvenuto grazie alla richiesta rivolta dalla Spagna all’OMS, dove a sostenerla c’era la responsabile di Salute Ambientale la Dott.ssa Maria Neira, la stessa che abbiamo incontrato nel 2011 proprio con l’associazione spagnola Asquifyde.
Speriamo di riuscire a tradurre l’articolo, in questo momento abbiamo diverse scadenze piuttosto impegnative ma ci proviamo.
Buona serata,
Francesca

Ecco una 'scatolina' per bloccare le connessioni Wifi in un ambiente

Si chiama UNPLUG !   vedete qui

Di fatto , è nato per verificare quali strumenti, pc , tablet o telefonini, sono connessi via wifi o bluetooh ad una specifica sorgente (antenna) wifi.  Le motivazioni sono legate al controllo di attività di spionaggio.

Però questo aggeggio può abbattere tutte le connessioni presenti , in un ambiente !
I produttori segnalano che questa azione probabilmente è illegale , ... , ma potrebbe essere un modo per sopravvivere ...

Wifi nei treni adalta velocità: una iniziativa di Codacons

Ricevo alla amica Fiona la seg. informazione che giro a tutti voi:

il Codcons si sta occupando  della nocività delle onde elettromagnetiche causate dall'installazione del wi fi sulle carrozze dei treni frecciarossa di trenitalia, il cui limite di esposizione consentito viene superato.

In primo grado il Tar LAzio riteneva compatibile il campo elettromagnetico creatosi sul treno frecciarossa , con le leggi nazionali, pertanto rigettava il ricorso del codacons che ora sta proponendo appello al Consiglio di Stato



Le persone alle quali é stato diagnosticata una particolare elettrosensibilitá o che hanno ravvisato fastidi a causa deill'elettrosmog presente su trenitaliaf recciarossa, sarebbe interessante che raccontino la propria storia.
potrebbe essere una testimonianza interessante nella battaglia del codacons
contro gli effetti dei campi elettromagnetici
Grazie, lo metto su qualche website.

Questo d'una mia amica chi e avvocato presso CODACONS. Suggere che la gente possa scrivere a
valeria graziussi c/o codacons viale mazzini n. 73, 00195 roma

I danni della mielina come meccanismo di azione della elettrosensibilità ?

Il Prof Olle Johansson in questo recentissimi articolo
http://1.usa.gov/1tNktZB
ha raccolto gli studi eseguiti sugli effetti della mielina sottoposti a radiofrequenze  correlati con  elettrosensibilità, multiple sclerosis ed altre malattie.

Ha trovato notevole relazioni tra i sintomi della elettrosensibilità con quelli legati alla 'demelinizzazione' .

E' un altro modello di relazione tra causa (radiofrequenze) e gli effetti (elettrosensibilità e malattie neurologiche vicine).

Inviata al 'difensore civico' della UE una contestazione sull'operato della commissione SCENHIR



Susan Foster ha inoltrato all'Ombudsman, che è il difensore civico [previsto dalla Commissione Europeo per riportare contestazioni sull'operato di organismi comunitari],  un ricorso contro la decisione presa dalla commissione SCENHIR in quanto nel suo rapporto sulla pericolosità delle radiazioni EM, sono stati volutamente esclusi  importantissimi contributi scientifici del Dr Hardell , concretizzato in ben 3 lavori pubblicati nel 2013.

Qui viene contestato l'operato del responsabile di questa commissione DR J. Schuz che ha evidenti conflitti di interesse e precedenti finanziamenti dalla industria (vedere sotto in giallo).

Susan fa presente al Difensore  come gli studi di Hardell (precedenti a questi del 2013) sono stati basilari per la classificazione 2B (possibili cancerogeni) della radiofrequenze da parte dello IARC (WHO) nel 2011, ma anche più recentemente, nella nota vertenza aperta presso la Corte Suprema USA,  il giudice ha riconosciuto  la validità di questi studi superando i selettivi e stringenti  test legali denominati Frye  : grazie a questi studi di Hardell il giudice ha deciso di andare avanti in questa macro-causa (somma di ben 13 cause) !
E questo Schuz con determinazione, nonostante i richiami dei colleghi della commissione, ha deciso che NO, Hardell non rientra !!! 

Susan spara diretto: è ben pagato per tenere lontano questi lavori, da  parte della industria delle telecomunicazioni !





Please see enclosed letter sent to the EU Ombudsman regarding SCENIHR Suppression of Science.
August 31, 2014
Emily O'Reilly
European Ombudsman
European Commission
RE:  SCENIHR Report 2014 and The Suppression of Dr. Lennart Hardell’s Science
Dear Emily O'Reilly:
In July 2014 we received individual letters from Acting Director John Ryan following our deeply and urgently conveyed concerns that scientific misconduct had occurred at SCENIHR under the direct actions of Dr. Joachim Schüz.  Dr. Schüz took it upon himself to unilaterally write the epidemiology portion of SCENIHR’s report.  Because SCENIHR was entrusted with examining the RF standards for all of Europe, this task and position calls for great integrity and objectivity.  We are strongly suggesting both were lacking as Dr. Schüz “cherry-picked” the science that went into SCENIHR’s preliminary and then final report, purposefully and negligently omitting the five 2013 studies of independent epidemiologist Dr. Lennart Hardell of Sweden.
From Acting Director John Ryan we received the following replies to our concerns, as did others who wrote with similar concerns:
Subject' Reply - EC - SCENIHR Preliminary Report
“Our investigation found no facts to support these allegations, which seem to be
completely unfounded. The working methods used by the EMF working group were appropriate and in accordance with our rules of procedure. All members of the working group agreed upon the preliminary opinion and its conclusions before the draft preliminary opinion was sent to the SCENIHR for approval.
No conflict of interest could be identified among members of the EMF working group or the stakeholder members.”
We would contend, with all due respect to Mr. Ryan, that the Secretariat of the Scientific Committee assigned by Acting Director John Ryan may not have fully investigated the multiple conflicts of interest that Dr. Schüz brought to SCENIHR.  To be blunt, the body of Joachim Schüz’s work and his telecom industry affiliations – so carefully elucidated by others who share our concern – must be scrutinized. This conflict of interest by Joachim Schüz impacts hundreds of millions of lives.  We suggest the fox is guarding the hen house, and the victims are an unsuspecting body of humanity entrusting their lives, their children’s lives, and their progeny to the industry-biased goals of an epidemiologist who is on the industry payroll through a multitude of organizations including the Danish Cancer Society (as foreign as that conflict of interest may sound).  There has been excellent reporting on Dr. Schüz’s well-known conflicts of interest by Louis Slesin of Microwave News, and more recently a comprehensive letter to John Ryan by Israeli author Iris Atzmon which includes the following conflicts of interest:
Dr. Schüz declared his contract with the electric industry, see "2006-2012 Electric Power Research Institute" (EPRI), EPRI is the US power industry research arm. 
He also declared that he was a management committee member of COST BM 0704.  IT'IS Foundation was appointed as the Grant Holder of COST Action BM0704. http://www.itis.ethz.ch/news-events/news/other-news/it-is-foundation-appointed-as-the-grant-holder-of-cost-action-bm0704/
Additionally, Lloyd Morgan, B.Sc. of Berkeley, California, published a comprehensive list of Dr. Joachim Schüz’s conflicts in Electromagnetic Health.org.   http://electromagnetichealth.org/electromagnetic-health-blog/has-the-fox-been-put-in-charge-of-guarding-the-hen-house/
Our complaint to you on behalf of the UK’s EM Radiation Research Trust, sent with the greatest urgency, is about Dr. Schüz receiving money from a variety of telecommunication and power industry sources, money which sometimes flows through and insidiously influences organizations like the Danish Cancer Society – and now SCENIHR. This complaint is about the unethical actions of Joachim Schüz, a man who purports to be objective, places himself in charge of the epidemiology section of the SCENIHR Report, and then single-handily ignores, dismisses, and suppresses the brilliant 2013 epidemiology studies of Dr. Lennart Hardell of Sweden.  Four of these five 2013 Hardell studies found a statistically significant link between cell phones and gliomas -- the deadliest of brain tumors, and acoustic neuromas. Both types of brain tumors are on the rise; prompting an unprecedented industry attempt around the world to suppress these statistics. 
It should be noted that Dr. Hardell’s earlier science, even before the 2013 studies were published, was included in the science that went before Judge Frederick H. Weisberg of Superior Court in Washington D.C.  Judge Weisberg is presiding over 13 consolidated lawsuits against the telecommunications industry in the United States.  After months of testimony and careful deliberation, Judge Weisberg ruled that scientific evidence from five experts is strong enough to meet what is called the Dyas/Frye legal standard.  The science must be generally accepted and meet what some experts refer to as “the test of time”. Never before has this happened in the US.  Now the cases have been cleared by Judge Weisberg to proceed to trial.
Not all science brought before the court was accepted.  The science of Dr. Lennart Hardell – and again, this is Dr. Hardell’s epidemiological science that preceded the five studies published in 2013 (which are even stronger) -- was considered strong enough by Judge Weisberg to be included in the brain tumor cases as they go forward to trial. It is critical to understand that the five more recently published studies by Dr. Hardell, which cover more than 20 years and show an even greater statistically significant correlation than the science considered and accepted by Judge Weisberg, were tragically dismissed by Dr. Schüz from consideration by SCENIHR. 
Dr. Kjell Mild, co-author of four or five of the studies with Dr. Hardell and a member of SCNEIHR, tried repeatedly to have Dr. Hardell’s science included in the SCENIHR report. He chronicled his strong objection to the dismissal of this science in a letter many of us sent to Mr. Ryan.  Those efforts by Dr. Mild were in vain.  Dr. Schüz was steadfast in his refusal to accept the Hardell science.
It is clear Dr. Lennart Hardell’s science is a “game-changer”, and Dr. Schüz is well-paid, albeit indirectly, to see that Hardell’s science does not adversely influence the profitable flow of the telcom industry’s business-as-usual.  There are two casualties in all of this cover-up: 1) the truth, and 2) the well-being of humanity.
The telecommunications industry is concerned about the liability implications of these recent court cases, with several precedents linking cell phones and brain tumors being set in Europe.  Honest, brilliant scientists around the world are having their funding cut because the telecommunications industry puts pressure on the universities that fund RF radiation research.  Because of this massive suppression of research monies by the industry, and because of the money we can trace to “industry-friendly scientists” who offer the study results that find “no harm” from cell phones and other wireless applications, Dr. Hardell’s independent science is more needed, more honored, and more timely than ever. 
Yet Joachim Schüz suppressed the Hardell science, and our letters to Mr. John Ryan detailed this concern. We believe Mr. Ryan was well intentioned but the reports to him that there was “no conflict of interest” had to have been false. Too many facts tell us otherwise.
To suppress science that has stood the test of time and is telling the world we need to consider RF radiation not as a 2B or “possible human” carcinogen but rather a Group 1 or “absolute” carcinogen in the same category with asbestos and DDT is not an oversight.  It is not a forgetful act.  It is a purposeful hiding of the truth. When SCENIHR is entrusted with evaluating the standards for all the citizens of Europe, and when we see the telecommunications industry’s fingerprints all over this suppression of Dr. Hardell’s science through Dr. Schüz, we must call this exactly what it is.  It is a crime against humanity.
We implore you to open an investigation into this scientific fraud.

Una zona realmente no elettrosmog è in USA, West Virginia: Green Bank

Qui c'è un articolo che parla di questa area in cui c'è un potentissimo telescopio spaziale nella National Radio Quiet Zone, così decisa nel lontano 1958, dal Congresso Americano.

Questo telescopio richiede la quasi assenza di radiazioni ... e questo per un'area di 34.000 Km2 !  
Incluso un villaggio ma anche una stazione sciistica.

C'è una continua ricerca di soluzioni di annullamento, come ad es. l'uso di microcelle per i 'cellualri' walkie talkies  nella stazione sciistica, ...  Hanno un camion attrezzato (tipo ghost buster ?) che localizza qualsiasi radiazioni che poi vanno a beccare per 'risolverla' ! 
Le nuove difficoltà vengono da auto nuove che arrivano in quell'area per i vari dispositivi e trasmissioni di radiofrequenze presenti (ultimi sono  quelli provenienti dalle 4 valvole dei pneumatici !).

Chissà che bello se tanta attenzione potesse essere data alle persone elettrosensibili  ?! 
O forse chiedere ospitalità in quel villaggio ?       (si può provare !)





Why One West Virginia Town Has Banned Cell Phones
Cell phones are banned in Green Bank in the name of science.
Laura Ryan, National Journal, August 30, 2014
Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren't welcome either.
Green Bank might sound like a Luddite's dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet's self-imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world's largest radio telescope, a 100-meters-in-diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can't. It lets scientists "see" parts of the universe that are invisible to the human eye, giving them the power to study far-off galaxies and the lives of stars and discover new planets.
But to do its job, the telescope needs complete radio silence—a tall order in the digital age, even in a town with only about 150 residents.
And so, within a 10-mile radius of the observatory, Wi-Fi, cell phones, and radios are flat-out banned. And the zone extends further into a 13,000-square-mile area in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Virginia where the use of airwaves is heavily restricted. The restrictions are part of Congress's 1958 decision to build the National Radio Quiet Zone to protect the NRAO.
A cell phone can throw off the world's largest telescope because of the latter's extraordinary sensitivity—a necessity to measure radio frequencies emitted by objects in space. To put this in perspective, a typical cell phone emits two to three watts when it is turned on but not being used. The radio telescope measures 0.00000000000000000000000000000001 watts, or approximately the same amount of energy given off by a single snowflake when it hits the ground. (At that scale, output is measured in a unit called the jansky, named after Karl Jansky, the founder of radio astronomy.)
A ring of mountains gives the area one layer of natural protection from the outside world, but the topography is far from enough to maintain the blackout the telescope needs to operate. And the challenge to keep a radio-free zone radio-free is getting harder, with 90 percent of Americans now owning cell phones and 87 percent of Americans relying on the Internet, according to a recent Pew study.
The task falls on Mike Holstein, whose official title is general manager of the NRAO. But "Defender of the Airwaves" is a more suitable description. Holstein has been at the observatory for 23 years, a span that coincides neatly with the rise of the Internet and cell phones.
In the early days, patrolling the radio blackout was a fairly simple task. Malfunctioning electronics in the community caused most interference, so Holstein could personally knock on the door, explain the problem, and fix it. "We'd try to replace the faulty part or we would fix their appliance or fix their fence," Holstein said.
But the wireless revolution changed things. Interference has become a daily occurrence, as objects that most Americans take for granted—such as remote controls and microwaves—are airwave mischief-makers. "Most people don't think about these kinds of things, but we have to think about them all the time," Holstein said. "Basically anything you have that is electronic is a source of radio-frequency radiation."
Policing interference requires constant vigilance, cooperation, and creativity.
The NRAO monitors airwave activity 24/7. When Holstein or a member of his crew sees a spike in activity, they hop in a diesel truck equipped with antennas to track down the culprit. If the problem is fixable, they'll fix it. If not, they'll ask the owner to stop using it.
This requires close cooperation with the residents of Green Bank and the nearby Snowshoe ski resort. The Federal Communications Commission is the ultimate enforcer of the quiet zone, but Holstein says the observatory rarely turns to the FCC to settle disputes. "We generally have the great support of the community," Holstein said. "We really wouldn't be able to do the science we do without their support."
Instead, Holstein and his team look for engineering solutions that allow the town's residents and thousands of visitors to enjoy some of the conveniences of the digital age.
As a result, Snowshoe got its first taste of cell reception last year with the help of miniature networks called microcells. But coverage is limited to the the ski village, so resort employees still rely on walkie-talkies to run day-to-day operations of a ski mountain.
George Murphy, chief technology officer for Snowshoe Mountain Resort, says many first-time visitors don't realize what they are getting themselves into and are "absolutely horrified" when they find themselves without text messaging or Netflix to entertain their kids.
But some problems are impossible to eradicate—such as automobiles. Not only do gasoline engines create interference, but a 2007 federal law requiring new cars to be equipped with a tire pressure monitor essentially puts tiny radio transmitters in every tire.
To fix this, Green Bank lined the roads with evergreen trees. Pine needles are sponges for radio signals, effectively mitigating much of the interference produced by cars.
A few countries, including Australia and Chile, are trying to build radio quiet zones, but Holstein doubts that it would be possible to recreate one in the U.S. today. Technological dependence is so pervasive in American culture, he says, that it would be difficult to "basically tell people what they have they can't have any longer."
