2019-01-04 Across the US, wireless service cut — no emergency service for millions

1)   When the access to wireless internet replaces available wired access, people begin to ask serious questions like, why is this so?  We all know that wired internet is much faster, more reliable and safer than wireless, but companies have convinced people that the internet equals Wi-Fi. This mis-conception needs to be addressed because the more people demand wired internet, the less Wi-Fi there will be. In addition, digital phones quit working, as they will because they run on batteries that may or may not be fully charged (even when fully charged the phone will not work more than 3-4 hours.)  How to get medical help in case of emergencies?  The industry wants you to depend on cell phones that may or may not be fully charged.  Bring back the copper line for our phones (which I did !).  How many people in BC were stranded without phones during the storm?

The technology Grinch stole​ Christmas, Exposed the Naked Wireless Emperor, and upended privacy.

“Two days after Christmas arguments spiraled out of control in millions of households around the nation.  Which bozo cut the wire to the internet? Who disconnected the router and the Xbox? Who dinged the remote controller for the game boy?…

Two days after Christmas arguments spiraled out of control in millions of households around the nation.  Which bozo cut the wire to the internet? Who disconnected the router and the Xbox? Who dinged the remote controller for the game boy?  

Far more serious than these domestic squabbles is the fact that thousands of emergency calls to 911 made from landlines (that depended on wireless access through CenturyLink) did not work from Massachusetts to Missouri.   For a while electronic medical records could not be accessed in Greeley, Colorado, and doctors had to resort to pen and paper to take notes. “

 2)  In upstate New York the utility company had planned on beginning to install smeters last year, but the plan has been delayed. The proposed cost would have been $500 million for 1.8 million homes. The same number of homes, half the cost that BC Hydro’s program cost.  Discussion about the problems and supposed benefits continue as do negotiations for the 3rd year

RG&E’s new meters: Here’s what you need to know

“…Some critics question their safety and others say they’re not worth the half-a-billion dollar investment.

For reasons that are unclear, the RG&E/NYSEG proposal has been delayed as the company, state regulators and a handful of other parties negotiate the terms of the massive program behind closed doors in Albany.

Those negotiations are now entering their third year.

When the talks conclude, one thing is a near-certainty: Your utilities rates will jump to pay for the smart-meter rollout.

3)  At a Michigan hearing on 5G technology an internal medicine doctor outlines some epidemics that have been associated with RF/EMR/EMF.  Why increase our exposure to more radiation when we know the current levels are extremely harmful?  The Ramazzini study reported that exposure to levels to which we are exposed in our environments today increase rates of cancers as well as other serious effects.
