- As we’ve heard many times, Hydro’s “dumb” program isn’t working quite the way they planned or the way we’ve been told. Recent info from a member. Where is the financial report re. this program?
“I had a short chat with the meter reader yesterday and he told me there are about 40 analogs in my area,a lot of the smart meters are not working and BCHydro has to upgrade the power lines in some areas, more $$$$$.”
- Great news on the wifi in schools front. The first school is the US is taking precautionary steps to reduce exposures in schools for teachers and students.
“It is important to note that even if users comply with these FCC recommended distances as stated in the device manual, accumulating research shows that biological damage can occur from wireless radiation levels far lower than these FCC levels. FCC limits are only set to protect people from heating harm and do not address non-thermal effects.
This ground breaking policy action by the Massachusetts school district is indicative of the wave of parents raising concerns about Wi-Fi across the country. Ashland, Massachusetts parent Cecelia Doucette wrote an article in Ashland Local Town Pages about these new best practices. Significant news and print media have picked the issue up after Massachusetts parents filed a lawsuit against a private boarding school alleging the school did not accommodate their 12-year-old child’s diagnosed debilitating sensitivity to the school’s WiFi system.”
