A Statement by Ehren Watada's Mother

Carolyn Ho, mother of war resister Lt. Ehren Watada, asks the nation to support her son at an upcoming National Day of Action on June 27th. She says that her son "demonstrates that one does not relinquish the freedom to choose what is right, even in the military, and that the freedom to choose what is right transcends the allegiance to man and institutions."

Iraqi PM Calls for Withdrawal Timetable

The new Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has drafted a national reconciliation plan that will be released on Sunday. The plan includes a timetable for withdrawal of occupation troops from Iraq, amnesty for insurgents, release of all security detainees from US and Iraqi prisons, and compensation for victims of coalition military operations.

Die Bush-Regierung versucht, den Lauschangriff auf die internationalen Finanzdaten zu rechtfertigen

Transparenz total

Die Bush-Regierung versucht, den Lauschangriff auf die internationalen Finanzdaten, dessen Aufdeckung sie nicht verhindern konnte, zu rechtfertigen, Legitimation, so die kaum rechtsstaatliche Begründung der fürsorglichen Big-Brother-Regierung, ergebe sich durch den Erfolg, aber auch der scheint nicht groß zu sein.


Lauschangriff auf die Finanzen

Die ohne richterliche Genehmigung erfolgte Durchsuchung von Datenbergen über internationale Finanztransaktionen durch die CIA war spätestens Ende 2002 öffentlich bekannt, nur kümmerte sich damals in der Terrorhysterie niemand darum, was zeigt, wie sich die Zeiten geändert haben.

The WHO Model Legislation for EMF Human Exposure Act

I am forwarding you for posting this attachment--the WHO "Model Legislation for Electromagnetic Fields Protection" -- that I have just received.

I speed-read "The WHO Model Legislation for EMF Human Exposure Act". I would say it's advantageous for us EHS activists to be aware of its definition of terms, its proposed goals, et al so that it--the WHO-- may be challenged on not adhering to any of these, as occassion arises. Also, I noted these points: the Act excluded the military from its "Scope and Application" (3.2); it gave due recognition to the importance of "frequency of the field" when considering "Basic Restrictions."

Families prepare for phone mast battle

24 June 2006 09:31

Families living on a sprawling estate look set for a fresh battle to stop a mobile phone mast being built at the heart of their community.

Telecommunications giant O2 has submitted plans for a 12.5 metre mast with enclosed antennae and ground-based equipment cabinets on highway verge on Dussindale Drive, Thorpe St Andrew.

The choice of site initially caused outrage among people living in the area as it was just yards from a plot of land at Vane Close, off Dussindale Drive, where work to build a £4m primary school has started.

The application was withdrawn by O2 in March following a successful community campaign opposing the mast, but now the company has put in a separate application for a mast on the road opposite an existing 10m mobile phone mast operated by Orange.

“It's down the road from the first one,” said a spokesman for O2. “We're getting out of the area of where people were saying they didn't want it - hopefully we're going to be out of the way of them.”

The spokesman said the mast was needed to provide adequate access and cover for mobile users in the area. But families who fought so hard to stop the mast last time are not impressed they will be faced with another battle to stop this one.

Roy Francis, 52, from Vane Close, who started a petition against the previous mast application, said he was shocked to hear more proposals had been lodged with Broadland District Council.

Mr Francis, an aircraft engineer, said he would support objectors to the mast even though it was further away from the site of the school.

“It's still a very densely populated residential area,” he said. “I wouldn't want it next to my house; it's hard to visualise 12.5 metres.”

Michelle Dickerson, a mum of two who lives on Association Way, off Dussindale Drive, said: “There's obviously a need for mobile phone masts, but I don't know why they have to be right outside our house.”

After their victory in March, Mr Francis thanked the Evening News for raising awareness about the issue among people living in the area.

The Evening News has campaigned against the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools, until it is proved they are safe, through our Put Masts on Hold campaign.

Second Mistrial in Sears Tower Case

Julienne Gage reports for The Washington Post, "A federal judge in Miami declared a second mistrial Wednesday in the case of six men accused of plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower, and attack other targets, when a second jury failed to reach a verdict on the charges. The decision is a setback for the Bush administration, which had touted the case as an example of the government's ability to prevent terrorist attacks but has failed to win convictions in two attempts."

Poverty Not a Pressing Issue for the Press

The fight against poverty, which calls for a multipronged effort against hunger, inequality, and social marginalisation, is a pressing issue in Latin America. But it is apparently not for the press. In Colombia, where roughly half of the population lives in poverty, the only nationwide newspaper, El Tiempo, dedicates just 0.8 percent of its coverage to the issue.

Mobile phone users warned of lightning strike risk

Fri Jun 23, 2006 1:52 PM BST

LONDON (Reuters) - People should not use mobile phones outdoors during thunderstorms because of the risk of being struck by lightning, doctors said on Friday.

They reported the case of a 15-year-old girl who was using her phone in a park when she was hit during a storm. Although she was revived, she suffered persistent health problems and was using a wheelchair a year after the accident.

"This rare phenomenon is a public health issue, and education is necessary to highlight the risk of using mobile phones outdoors during stormy weather to prevent future fatal consequences from lighting strike injuries," said Swinda Esprit, a doctor at Northwick Park Hospital in England.

Esprit and other doctors at the hospital added in a letter to the British Medical Journal that usually when someone is struck by lightning, the high resistance of the skin conducts the flash over the body in what is known as a flashover.

But if a metal object, such as a phone, is in contact with the skin it disrupts the flashover and increases the odds of internal injuries and death.

The doctors added that three fatal cases of lightning striking people while using mobile phones have been reported in newspapers in China, South Korea and Malaysia.

"The Australian Lightning Protection Standard recommends that metallic objects, including cordless or mobile phones, should not be used (or carried) outdoors during a thunderstorm," Esprit added.
