HEAD'S WORRIES OVER PHONE MAST

BUILDING a mobile phone mast next to Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Horncastle will be an 'unecessary risk' to pupils, say staff and parents.

T-Mobile want to build a 15 metre tall mast near the school on land owned by Hemingby Agricultural Traders on the Reindeer Close Industrial Estate to provide coverage for the town.

QEGS headteacher Tim Peacock said: "It is not appropriate to site a mast next to a school. The risks associated with non-ionizing radiation are very unclear.

"The governing body takes the view it must exercise its duty of care and object very strongly that pupils and staff should not be exposed to unecessary risk."

He said worried parents have written in to complain about the plan.

T-Mobile is holding a drop-in session at the Admiral Rodney in Horncastle on Wednesday July 26 from 4.30-7.30pm for people to find out more.

The company says it has to build a new mast in the town as the current one on land off Southwell Lane has to be taken down - to make way for Chartdale Homes building 70 houses on the site.

T-Mobile say depending on the reaction from people at the drop-in they may then submit a planning application to build the mast to East Lindsey District Council.

A spokesman for T-Mobile told the News the World Health Organisation say there is 'no convincing scientific evidence' mobile phone masts cause 'adverse affects'.

Omega this is not true. See under:

//www.buergerwelle.de/body_science.html
//omega.twoday.net/stories/2372636/


They added all their mobile phone equipment conforms to stringent international guidelines.

Mr Peacock said if a planning application was submitted the governors would 'very likely object'.

He added he was concerned this next phase of consultation was taking place at the start of the school holiday 'when opportunities for objection would be reduced.'

Sue Emmson, who lives off Lincoln Road, is concerned on two counts - she is near the site and her daughter Jessica goes to the school.

She said: "A school is the wrong place to put it. It is the unknown - no one can prove one way or the other about these masts."

But another nearby resident, who did not wish to be named, told the News: "I'm fine with it, it doesn't bother me."

T-Mobile say concerned parents can contact them for information over the school holiday on 08703 216047 or at networkinfo@t-mobile.co.uk

Initiative 50 plus: Abschieben in den Niedriglohnsektor

"Abschieben in den Niedriglohnsektor": Volkssolidarität will nur versicherungspflichtige Arbeitsplätze (18.07.06)

Die Volkssolidarität begrüßt "jede Initiative zur Schaffung zusätzlicher versicherungspflichtiger Arbeitsplätze" auf dem ersten Arbeitsmarkt, "wenn sie den Betroffenen ermöglichen, die eigene Existenz unter menschenwürdigen Bedingungen zu sichern". Ein bloßes "Abschieben Älterer in den Niedriglohnsektor" hält der Sozialverband für nicht akzeptabel. Dies "mag zwar die Statistik verbessern, wäre aber als Hilfe für die Menschen unbefriedigend", sagte der Präsident der Volkssolidarität, Professor Gunnar Winkler, zu den von der Bundesregierung beabsichtigten Maßnahmen für mehr Beschäftigung älterer Arbeitnehmer. Bezogen auf die so genannte "Initiative 50 plus" betonte Winkler, es müsse "um mehr als nur Show-Effekte gehen, die lediglich das Vorhaben der Großen Koalition hoffähig machen sollen, das Rentenalter von 65 auf 67 anzuheben".

Worse Than the Patriot Act

You may have read headlines calling the Cheney-Specter bill on surveillance oversight a "compromise." But make no mistake, this deal is nothing short of a complete capitulation to the Bush administration.

The bill includes legalized assaults on our civil liberties worse even than the sweeping powers ceded to the government by the Patriot Act, and would write into law what is now the administration's belief that the president can wiretap any American he wants without any check.

From the Supreme Court to people on the street, America is starting to wake up to the Bush administration's abuse of power. Unfortunately, Congress hasn't gotten the message and is poised to rubber stamp a dangerous agenda that is doing real harm to our democracy.

Not only is Congress considering NSA "oversight" legislation that would hand the president vast new powers—only days after the Defense Department stated that it will comply with the Geneva Conventions regarding the treatment of detainees—a top Justice Department lawyer urged Congress to "ratify" the military commissions that the Supreme Court invalidated two weeks ago.

The headlines are full of White House spin claiming that Senator Arlen Specter's (R-PA) bill on surveillance is a successful compromise between Congress and the White House. Of course, Senator Specter would like you to believe he is taking a stand on the Bush's administration's actions because he knows that is what most Americans want Congress to do. But in reality these ill-advised proposals give the president a blank check to spy on Americans without a warrant and without mandatory judicial review of his actions.

You can help us get out the truth about this bill and the dangers it poses to our basic rights. Please take a few minutes to contact your newspaper right now. Tell them that this "compromise" actually compromises our rights and gives a blank check to the president.
//action.aclu.org/site/R?i=iewk83aCNKYiULGL02u3Yg..

It is very important that the American people know that the bill that is supposed to rein in surveillance of innocent citizens actually includes:

# Legalization of the president's program of warrantless surveillance on Americans, a program that is illegal under current law and unconstitutional.

# A diminished role for the court that oversees the NSA's warrantless domestic spying, making oversight by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) optional -- and we know that when this administration doesn't believe in getting court warrants even when required; making them "optional" is making them non-existent.

# A new, unconstitutional process for challenging surveillance, via a secret appeals court composed of judges hand-picked solely by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who supports expansive presidential powers.

# An information blackout by the Executive Branch against the Congress or our courts when it comes to the names and number of Americans monitored by the spying program. Without any oversight, countless journalists, lawyers, hotel clerks and others will inevitably be swept into round-the-clock monitoring of their phone conversations, indefinitely.

We cannot allow the Executive Branch to weasel out of obeying the Supreme Court and federal law; and Congress is overdue in asserting and affirming its role of keeping the president in check and reining in the president's sweeping interpretation of power.

The ACLU will be keeping the pressure on all summer and into the fall, and we'll be calling on you and everyone across America who cares about our liberties to join us in the fight.

How these stories are characterized in the press plays an important role in our success. So, please take a few minutes right now to write your local paper with our easy-to-use letter to the editor tool.
//action.aclu.org/site/R?i=_dNXamkcndn9i9rYWLiBQA..

As always, thank you for standing with us. It is absolutely essential that every one of us rallies to protect the freedoms that define our democracy.

Sincerely,

Anthony D. Romero

Born-Again Rubinomics

"It's a big deal when Robert Rubin changes the subject and begins to talk about income inequality as 'a deeply troubling fact of American economic life' that threatens the trading system, even the stability of 'capitalist, democratic society,'" writes William Greider. "More startling, Rubin now freely acknowledges what the American establishment for many years denied or dismissed as inconsequential - globalization's role in generating the thirty-year stagnation of US wages, squeezing middle-class families and below, while directing income growth mainly to the upper brackets."

Green belt phone mast scheme thrown out

A plan to erect a mobile phone mast on green belt land next to the M54 near Shifnal has been thrown out despite it being recommended for approval.

Bridgnorth District Council’s development control committee last night voted unanimously against proposals to put up a 22.5 metre mast at Williams Plant Hire, off Stanton Road at Tong Forge.

The application by phone giant T-Mobile had been recommended for approval by the council’s planning officers but councillors rejected it on the grounds that it did not justify the special circumstances needed to build on green belt land.

Refusal was proposed by Councillor Norman Cottrell, who described the proposed mast as a “massive thing” that would tower above trees in the area.

The full version of this article appears in tonight’s Bridgnorth edition of the Shropshire Star.

Final days of Arizona's final free-flowing river

Arizona Republic
by E. J. Montini

Robin Silver is in the business of saving lives, which, as legacies go, is better than most. But it isn't enough. Not for him. He also wants to save the planet, or at least one or two of its most beautiful spots, which happen to exist here in Arizona. So when he isn't working as a physician, Silver heads up the Tucson-based Center for Biological Diversity. I first spoke to him last July about a catastrophic event in our state that none of us noticed, and which we wouldn't have cared about even if we had. For the first time in 75 years, stream flow in southern Arizona's San Pedro River had shrunk to zero. The 140-mile river flows north from Mexico into Arizona, passing east of Tucson and meandering to Sierra Vista. It's the last free-flowing river in the Southwest and has been a source of life in the desert for thousands of years...

If you begin with an incorrect premise, you are bound to arrive at bad conclusions. Nowhere is this more true than in matters of government.

Many of us have noted that the 'body politic' has the memory span of a goldfish and moves from one crisis or scandal to the next as quickly as a glutton at an all-you-can-eat buffet loads his plate. (And the aftermath of each set of actions produces the same flushable result.) One of the reasons Americans have such a lousy set of elected officials is that most of the people that vote have little knowledge of, or interest in increasing that knowledge of, the issues that represent the causes (rather than the symptoms) of what is wrong with the United States today...

Instead, it found other enemies. Doing so wasn't easy. Saddam Hussein's Iraq proved to be easy prey. Now Iran is getting the most attention...

Sustainable freedom: the dilemma

Backwoods Home Magazine
by Claire Wolfe

07/15/06

The left is forever pushing the term 'sustainable.' It seems to mean 'severely limited under central government control.' Permit me to repossess that perfectly good word. Let it mean what it ought to: capable of lasting without artificial props. Then let's apply it where it's desperately needed: Creating Sustainable Freedom. But how? So far, nobody has figured that out. Freedom can't be sustained by bits of paper, however noble their intent. Freedom can't be sustained by guns, useful though guns may be in discouraging both freelance and tax-supported gangsters. Freedom certainly can't be sustained with vast edifices of legislation, regulation, and punishment. That's one of the great cons of all time -- believing the very destroyers of freedom can be freedom's saviors.To endure, freedom must be self-governing and self-regenerating...

Another reason for bringing the troops home

Mother Jones
by Raed Jarrar

07/17/06

The ongoing civil conflict in Iraq is one of the major issues being considered in the debate over future U.S. military and political steps in Iraq. A growing number of analysts argue that U.S. military forces must stay in Iraq to prevent a full-scale sectarian civil war between Sunni and Shia Arabs in Iraq. But evidence exists that the roots of the Iraqi civil conflict is political rather than sectarian, and that the best solution is finding a way to bring the troops home...

There is nothing new about a president adding a 'statement on signing' to legislation he has approved. Since the country was founded, presidents have used these statements for relatively innocuous purposes: to thank supporters, explain their support for the bill or express satisfaction -- or dissatisfaction -- with legislation passed by Congress. What is new and troubling is the extraordinary frequency with which President Bush has used these statements, and the unorthodox way he uses them...

The impossibility of discussing anything at all

The Power of Narrative
by Arthur Silber

07/16/06

I personally became painfully aware of the smear tactics that concern me when I began writing seriously about foreign policy in the spring and summer of 2003. Because I offered an extensive critique of the Bush administration's embrace of an aggressively interventionist foreign policy, a policy that history demonstrates always fails, always leads to destruction, and always leads to results that are the opposite of those intended by the interventionists themselves, the same people who had previously found considerable worth in my writing consigned me to 'the other side.' For many people, I was a 'Saddamite,' a particularly vicious and dishonest smear that I discussed just recently. Let us be very clear about the purpose of all such smears. Very simply, it is to prevent all questioning and criticism, and to end debate. That's all. The dishonest smearers hope that their intimidation will cause those with differing views to shut up and go away, never to be heard from again...

Armut in einem reichen Land ist mehr als nur eine Herausforderung, sie ist ein Skandal

Alter Hut frisch aufpoliert

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

18. Juli 2006

Morgen will Vizekanzler Müntefering dem Kabinett seinen Vorschlag für einen Kombilohn für ältere Arbeitnehmer vorstellen. Dazu erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katja Kipping:

"Initiative 50 plus" klingt auf den ersten Blick verlockend. Bei genauerer Betrachtung stellt sich heraus, dass Müntefering damit nur einen alten Hut frisch aufpoliert. Entsprechende Lohnkostenmodelle sind bislang immer gescheitert, haben nicht zu mehr Beschäftigung sondern allenfalls zu Mitnahmeeffekten in Größenordnung geführt. "50 plus" ist nichts weiter als eine neue Initiative zur Lohnsenkung für ältere Arbeitnehmer, die künftig erst ab 67 in Rente gehen dürfen und nun auch noch in Niedriglohnjobs abgedrängt werden sollen. Trostpflästerchen ist ein zweijähriger Lohnzuschuss. Es besteht die Gefahr, dass bestehende, Existenz sichernde Arbeitsplätze in das Niedriglohnsegment abrutschen, ja von Unternehmen sogar bewusst in solche umgewandelt werden. "50 plus" öffnet Niedriglöhnen für ältere Arbeitnehmer Tür und Tor und befördert Altersarmut. Es gibt andere Möglichkeiten, Betroffenen zu helfen. Ich erinnere an das Modellprojekt "Teilzeit plus", welches beispielsweise in Niedersachsen, Berlin und Dresden von der Bundesagentur für Arbeit durchgeführt wurde. Es ermöglichte kleinen und mittleren Handwerksunternehmen in Zeiten schwieriger Auftragslage, Mitarbeiter an gemeinnützige Vereine "auszuleihen". Die Bundesagentur übernahm den entsprechenden Lohnanteil. Das war eine echte Hilfe für kleine Unternehmen, die bei schlechter Auftragslage keine Stammarbeitnehmer entlassen mussten und war auch für die Bundesagentur kostengünstiger als Arbeitslosigkeit zu finanzieren. Aufgrund "geschäftspolitischer" Entscheidung der Bundesagentur wurde dieses Modellprojekt eingestellt. Denn die Bundesagentur häuft lieber 7 Mrd. Euro Überschuss an, statt Langzeitarbeitslosigkeit zu bekämpfen. Der neue Vorschlag von Vizekanzler Müntefering bestätigt einmal mehr: Ältere Arbeitnehmer und Rentner gehören zu den großen Verlierern der großen Koalition.

Help save Greater Yellowstone's unspoiled forests and streams!

The U.S. Forest Service has proposed a shamefully weak cleanup plan for a mine in southeast Idaho that is poisoning local streams and wildlife with toxic selenium. And to make matters worse, the agency is weighing a proposal to expand these polluting mining operations!

Please go to //www.savebiogems.org/yellowstone/takeaction.asp right away and tell the Forest Service to develop an effective cleanup plan for the Smoky Canyon Mine, which is putting the fragile natural treasures of the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem at risk. Your immediate action is crucial -- the agency is accepting comments only until next Monday, July 24th.

The vast wildlands of southeastern Idaho, including the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, comprise some of the most biologically rich areas in Greater Yellowstone. Wolves, moose, elk, lynx, mule deer, native cutthroat trout and other wildlife depend on the area's abundant streams. Countless outdoor enthusiasts are drawn to the region's clean air and water, sense of tranquility and blue-ribbon trout fishing.

Yet for years, the Forest Service has allowed the JR Simplot Company's Smoky Canyon Mine to poison the area's streams with toxic selenium -- a naturally occurring element that is released when phosphate ore is mined for fertilizer. The area is now so contaminated that the mine is operating under a Superfund cleanup order.

The Forest Service has said it intends to begin cleanup efforts, but its current plan addresses only one of five sources of selenium contamination at the mine. Plus, the agency is now considering a proposal by Simplot to expand its mining operations.

Please go to //www.savebiogems.org/yellowstone/takeaction.asp and tell the Forest Service to replace its current cleanup proposal with a plan that will stop selenium contamination in these wildlands.

Thank you for helping to protect Greater Yellowstone's pristine wildlife habitat.

Sincerely,

Frances Beinecke

Gods among Ordinary Men

War Crimes Act

The compromise legislation would narrow the range of offenses prohibited under the War Crimes Act. This would protect civilians (such as CIA interrogators and White House officials) from being prosecuted for committing acts that would have been considered war crimes under the old definition. The change is retroactive to 1997, which means any crimes committed since 1997 would be prosecuted under the new standard, not the old one.
