“Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries. That data collected from electric, gas, telecommunications, water, and waste providers, is used by small and medium-sized businesses, and multinational companies, to automate accounting and bill processing, manage energy costs, and comply with reporting regulations, the company said….

“Oak HC/FT’s financing will enable us to broaden our reach to the world’s largest corporations and utility providers, as well as accelerate our launch of new applications using utility data as an alternative source for credit scoring and identity verification,” said Sanjoy Malik, Urjanet’s chief executive, in a statement.”

Surveillance Capitalism Includes Utility “Smart” Meters. Utility Companies Collect Customer Usage Data 24/7. Are Yours Selling It to 3rd Parties?

“Recently, Harvard professor Shoshana Zuboff published a new book called The Age of Surveillance Capitalism which reveals how businesses not only offer services to customers – they collect personal data on them in order to sell it to 3rd parties.  Much of this is done without customer knowledge or consent….

Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries.”

Please note: This article includes the updated version of “Take Back Your Power”, which is very good, until the last 10 min. or so in which he speaks of liability, legality, etc. I wish to warn you that Josh makes statements that do not pertain to BC where smeters are mandated by law. The law was written by the Liberals and is supported by the NDP. Until the Clean Energy Act is changed, we are stuck if we want electricity. Many of us have paid thousands in extortion fees — which have yet to be accounted for — and many of us continue to pay. Many others, the vast majority, were given no choice to even pay the extortion. Josh also promotes his unique, and “legal” approach that lawyers say will not work and which never managed to prevent the installation of or the removal of a smeter in BC — or elsewhere that I have been able to confirm. Our only way to protect our homes and our rights is to demand that these things be removed from our homes and analog meters returned by demanding that the Clean Energy Act be amended.

Also in this article is a link to an interesting article about how a company (Urjanet) is gathering and selling data obtained via smeters to various corporations, including financial institutions which are using it to determine credit scores. This is yet more evidence that smeters are gathering data not needed for billing and, without our permission or awareness, it can be sold.

Headache in the Car (English Subtitles)

Most new cars have all the new gadgets including:  WLAN,  WiFi HotSpots,  Bluetooth connected Cellphone and EV electric motors.  Many new cars are using cellular connected internet HotSpots to give WiFi access to passengers.  WiFi will keep the kids occupied during the drive to/from school or shopping.

Here is an interesting German Video showing the impact on the driver’s brain during a test drive using EEG.  If you are sensitive in any way to EMF/RFR then driving or being a passenger in one of the new cars may be a disturbing experience.

I suspect that ALL people will be impacted,  some will feel some minor discomfort and some will  really suffer.  Those who suffer from EHS will tend to avoid these new cars.

(The audio is in German.  If you do not understand German then the subtitles will be sufficient for understanding.)

Mother of All Crimes – “5G” Technology!

The corrupt U.S. Military-Industrial-Complex (about which U.S. President Dwight Eisenhauer warned the American people in 1961 to be on guard against) ultimately is behind this new, untested (for safety to humans) 5G (Fifth Generation) technology!

View this warning by President Eisenhauer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y06NSBBRtY

If approved, 5G will totally revolutionize all of today’s wireless radio and microwave frequency technologies. 5G microwave radiation will be emitted by 20,000+ satellites in space – that are expected to blanket every inch of space on earth with broadband Internet radiation, plus the hundreds of thousands of micro  cell towers that telephone companies throughout North America are planning to situate not further apart than every 10th home – in every community!

Scientists fear that, on top of the radiation already blanketing planet earth from 2G, 3G and 4G technologies, this tsunami of additional microwave radiation emitted by 5G devices will bring about the end of all life on earth!

Phonegate scandal: Swiss deputies on the front lines by Alert Phone Gate – April 04, 2019

(click on photo to enlarge)

For the past year, many Swiss deputies have been asking the Federal Council for information and explanations regarding the Phonegate industrial and health scandal. Most recently, on 20 March 2019, National Councilor Silva Semadeni (Socialist group) and 26 other deputies* tabled another interpellation, 193180:

“Phonegate”: Properly inform mobile phone users….

An article that makes waves

The interpellation mentions the article published on 13 February 2019 by the popular Swiss consumer magazine “Beobachter”, written by Editor-in-Chief Andres Büchi, reporting on the Phonegate scandal, “Mobile phone users have been deliberately misled. For years, mobile phone manufacturers have reported values that are too low. Critics talk of a scandal.”  https://www.beobachter.ch/gesundheit/medizin-krankheit/handystrahlung-handynutzer-wurden-wissentlich-getauscht
