Potential hazards of wi-fi technology in schools

Friday 8th May 2009 at 09:00

ePolitix.com speaks to Philip Parkin, general secretary of Voice: the union for education professionals about the potential effects of wi-fi technology in schools on the health of children.

Question: You have strong views on wi-fi in schools, what are your concerns about the potential effects on children?

Philip Parkin: There are a number of them. There seems to be an increasing quantity of evidence being produced around the world which suggests that exposure to electromagnetic radiation can have long-term health impacts both on children and adults but particularly children. Exposing young children (from birth to 12 years of age) to electromagnetic radiation can produce changes in cell formation, genetic changes, and potential cancers.

Philip Parkin speakes up against WiFi

Philip Parkin, general secretary of "Voice: the union for education professionals", has spoken out in a comprehensive interview covering a number of controversial areas of the existing education system. The first four questions were based on the proliferation of WiFi in UK primary and secondary schools and whether the rollout is appropriate in the light of existence evidence and understanding of the science on similar technologies. In response to these, Philip covered the most relevant points from the point of view of concern over the uncertainty of whether a risk will be present, and if so what sort of prevalence and severity the increase in risk is likely to be.

Indien: Atomkernforschung gegen Elefanten

Das Nilgiri-Biosphärenreservat in Indien beherbergt die größte Population asiatischer Elefanten. Bauvorhaben der indischen Behörden bedrohen die jahreszeitliche Wanderung der Tiere. Im Februar hat Rettet den Regenwald eine Aktion zum Erhalt eines wichtigen Migrationskorridors gestartet. Nach Erhalt von Tausenden E-mails aus aller Welt sind die indischen Behörden von dem Bauplan im Reservat abgerückt. Doch nun plant eine andere Behörde, ein Neutrino-Forschungszentrum im Nilgiri-Schutzgebiet zu errichten.

Revealed: US interrogators may have killed dozens of detainees

AlterNet
by John Byrne

05/06/09

United States interrogators killed nearly four dozen detainees during or after their interrogations, according a report published by a human rights researcher based on a Human Rights First report and followup investigations. In all, 98 detainees have died while in U.S. hands. Thirty-four homicides have been identified, with at least eight detainees — and as many as 12 — having been tortured to death, according to a 2006 Human Rights First report that underwrites the researcher’s posting. The causes of 48 more deaths remain uncertain...

Stress test: Obama’s rosy scenario

The Nation
by William Greider

Now it’s official. Prosperity is right around the corner. We have heard the good news from both Wall Street and Washington. President Obama is careful not to use those very words … [b]ut the Obama administration sees ‘green shoots’ sprouting all around and it offers hard evidence in the long-anticipated results of its ’stress tests’ for major banks. Good news! Nobody is insolvent. … They can all weather the storm, with a little more aid from Uncle Sam. The stock market turned bullish in anticipation, and so has Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke. With few qualifiers, the Fed chairman announced a recovery is likely in the second half of the year. Well, maybe not for employment, but that’s a lagging indicator and financial markets always lead the way...

Are we all doomed?

TCS Daily
by Josie Appleton

05/07/09

Once, the apocalypse was an aberrant state of affairs, brought about by otherworldly forces. In traditional religion, some divine power burns up the earth and blacks out the sun, and creates a ‘new heaven and a new earth’ which is quite different from our own. In classic science fiction, the apocalypse comes from outer space or strange and mysterious creatures — the mutant from Mars, Triffids, giant leeches, or crab monsters. Cold War sci-fi presented threats to the world as coming from Them! or It!: the threats were extraordinary and Other. The world did not end every day. Now, the end of the world has become a resolutely everyday matter, the outcome of ordinary things...

US bank stress tests rigged to benefit Wall Street

It makes this assertion even while acknowledging that should the recession deepen significantly, the 19 banks could suffer $599.2 billion in losses over the next two years, and that their total loss rate for loans would be 9.1 percent, exceeding the levels of the 1930s.

Obama and the “National Day of Prayer”

Christian and State
by Nellis Lake

05/06/09

Imagine a proclamation by Caesar that there would be a “National Day of Prayer’ happening in the time of Christ. How do we think Jesus would respond? Would He be ecstatic, or wary? What need the church of a declaration of a day of prayer by a secular or pagan state?

Abusive power and the culture of obedience

Campaign For Liberty
by Bretigne Shaffer

05/07/09

Ask anyone who has lived under a repressive regime and they can tell you how it changes people. There are the obvious things like the fear of the knock at the door in the middle of the night, the loss of control over even the most mundane aspects of one’s own life and people using the apparatus of the state to settle personal grudges. But beneath all of these are deeper changes to the the way people behave and the way they treat each other. There is the unwillingness to smile or speak to strangers, or even to open up too much to friends for fear of information getting into the wrong hands...

Obama touts $17 billion cuts in $3+ trillion budget proposal

Abilene Reporter News

05/07/09

President Barack Obama sent Congress a detailed budget Thursday boasting of cutting or killing 121 federal programs in a belt-tightening he likened to that of most Americans in difficult times. But the trims amounted to a tiny fraction of the new spending he wants, and some have already been nixed by allies on Capitol Hill. Obama said his cuts would amount to $17 billion — in a budget totaling well over $3 trillion for the fiscal year that begins in October...

Budbrooke campaigners halt countryside phone mast plan

Published Date: 08 May 2009

By Holly Whitmill

Campaigners are celebrating after stopping a phone mast being built in open countryside.

Mobile phone company O2 had hoped to install a 12.5m mast and 1.65m high equipment cabinet in Old Budbrooke Road, opposite Montgomery Avenue, Budbrooke.

But objectors said the mast, next to a tree and backing onto open fields, would spoil the environment.
