Mangelnde Initiative gegen Gefahren des Mobilfunks

Unter "Eine ganz lange Leitung" wird mangelnde Initiative gegen Gefahren des Mobilfunks beklagt. Als ich gestern einem Stadtteil-Bürgerkreis über den Freiburger Appell und formellen Bürgerantrag informierte, regte ich gleichzeitig dazu Initiativen an. Die nachfolgende Antwort ist typisch für Menschen, die entweder einäugig oder blind sind.

Hallo Klaus,

wir alle haben großes Interesse gesund zu sein.
Nur wo fangen wir da an.

1. Autos mit Abgasen, rollende Musikboxen, Stau, Streß?
2. Sat-Schüsseln massenweise an den Häusern.
3. Handys, wo man geht und steht, wird man davon umgeben. (Für Leute mit Herzschrittmacher lebensgefährlich, wie auch die Schranken in den Kaufhäusern und die dazugehörenden Chips.
4. Handtelefone zu Hause, Funkwecker, Radiowecker, Mikrowelle.
5. Fernseher, Computer.
6. Schmutz gehört auch zu dem Thema, sobald er Überhand nimmt.

Wenn die Türkenkinder aus dem Urlaub kamen, waren Läuse und anstecktende Gelbsucht in der Schule nichts neues. Habe ich alles in der Schulzeit meiner Tochter erlebt. Dieser Unrat,der auch bei unseren Nachbarn rumfliegt und liegt, zieht Ratten an, auch das ist gesundheitsschädigend.

Damit will ich nicht, die Mobilfunkprobleme herunterspielen, liegt mir fern. Die Leute die sich die auf das Dach installieren lassen, denken ans Geld. Der Rest denkt an das Handy, was sonst nicht mehr so benutzbar ist.

Das ist eine Sache, die kaum in den Griff zu kriegen ist. Du hast von den kleinen Schritten gesprochen. Aber das würde ein Kampf an allen Fronten. Das ist auch für denjenigen die im Beruf ,Selbstständig oder Familie mit Kinder haben, kaum zu bewältigen. Was nützt es, dass wir was für die Gesundheit der Allgemeinheit tun und dabei die eigene Gesundheit durch ständigen Streß ruinieren. Selbstverständlich kannst Du das Thema bei dem Treffen ansprechen, vielleicht finden sich dort Leute, die Dich bei dieser Sache unterstützen.

Das Problem ist, dass sich manche bereits jetzt schon überfordert fühlen, mit Dingen die per E-Mail kommen die nicht zur Sache gehören. Also wenn bei unsere Sache SOS viele mitmachen sollen, müssen wir beim Thema bleiben. Mobilfunk wäre was für die, die sich freiwillig dafür bereit erklären.

Nichts für ungut, es ist leider so. Auch ich bin nicht bereit, da mit einzusteigen.

Ich wünsch Dir bei dieser Aktion viel Erfolg.

Church hoping to avoid holy row over phone mast

23 August 2006

A HISTORIC church could be used to house a mobile phone mast if planners get their way.

Mobile network operator Vodaphone is hoping to get public backing to install a mast inside the tower of the Grade II* listed Church of All Hallows, in Church Lane, Tottenham.

Now the church's parochial church council is appealing for public feedback to the proposal from Vodaphone's agent QS4 Ltd, the approved installer of telecommunications equipment for the Church of England.

Father Roy Pearson, 71, pastor of the church, said his congregation had no objections.

He said: "We are all in support of it. We need a lot of work done on the church, and this will help enormously.

"It is a listed building and we have had no help from anywhere to keep it in good order, and we have just got to do it ourselves.

"The floor needs some attention, and the gutters all round the church are in a very bad state, and that is a major task and is urgent."

He added: "This is being done through the Archbishop's Council, and it's all done very, very carefully and takes account of everybody's feelings.

"All the schools have been consulted and they have not even replied, and this was well before the term ended. They have no concerns at all."

QS4 Ltd says that no part of the church, which has stood on the site in various forms since the 14th century, will be visually affected by the mast.

The eight-bell peal, now used just for weddings and other special occasions, will also be unaffected.

The building is rated by English Heritage as among the top six per cent of most important buildings in the country.

People are invited to send their comments, with reference number A06535, by September 14 to or by post to John Horsley, QS4 Ltd, Cody Technology Park, Ively Road, Farnborough, Hants, GU14 0LX.

Judge Taylor's tapped-out argument

by Jeff A. Taylor


When President George Bush confidently told reporters Friday that a district court judge's ruling against his administration's secret wiretap program would be overturned, he wasn't just spinning. There is a good chance he is right. As much as it might pain those looking for something, anything, to use against the Bush administration's ever-increasing definition of executive power, U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor's opinion probably ain't it. There is a reason the Justice Department rushed to appeal this decision...

Welfare reform turns 10

Cato Institute
by Michael D.Tanner


On August 22, 1996, President Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, a bill that despite its obscure title represented the most extensive revision of federal welfare policy in more than 30 years. Among other things, the bill ended the legal entitlement to welfare benefits, established time limits and work requirements for participation in the program, and gave states much more authority to establish other requirements and restrictions. At the time, most American liberals predicted disaster. ... One frequently cited study predicted that more than a million children would be thrown into poverty. Welfare advocates painted vivid pictures of families sleeping on sidewalks, widespread starvation, and worse. ... Ten years on, we see that these claims were about as correct as intelligence estimates on Iraq...

When the military enforcers refuse to fight an aggressive war, the war will cease

The beginning of a start? Maybe

Self-Sovereign Individual Project
by Kitty Antonik Wakfer


The logic that when the military enforcers refuse to fight an aggressive war, the war will cease, extends to other actions by government, which always makes use of force or threat of it and therefore requires enforcers for its continued potent existence. When growing numbers of individuals resign their jobs as enforcers -- police, customs agents, border guards, drug enforcement agents, tax agents, FDA regulation enforcers, etc -- and few can be hired to replace them, then the legislators/executors at all levels will either have to take up the reins of enforcement themselves or acknowledge their impotence to rule others...

Similarly, if law enforcement officials in another signatory nation with much stricter gun control laws than ours, decide there's some evidence on a U.S. citizen's computer in this country that they say is related to an anti-firearms prosecution, all they need do is ring up our Justice Department and request the information.

Protesters ‘stabbed in the back’ by company

By Robert Fisk

Workmen barricade themselves in to put up the mobile phone mast BR5127

CAMPAIGNERS have lost their fight against a mobile phone giant installing a 8.5m-high mast.

They had staged protests at the site of a T-Mobile mast on the corner of St Paul's Wood Hill and Beddington Road, St Paul's Cray, since the company was granted permission by the Government's Planning Inspectorate in February.

The group, which is worried about the health implications of having a mast near homes, thought it had won when it managed to prevent work on the site during the second week of August by standing round the hole where the mast was supposed to be installed.

But workers for T-Mobile caught the protestors off-guard by returning to the site at 7am on August 16.

They had barricaded themselves in with two layers of security barriers and guards were standing watch by the time campaigners arrived.

Angry scenes erupted with protesters claiming T-Mobile had broken its agreement to not start work on the mast until the protest group had a meeting with Bromley police about the legalities of protesting.

Police were called after the group of about 15 campaigners tried to lift the barriers so they could crawl into the site and stand in the hole to stop work.

A security guard kept watch overnight and the work was completed on August 17.

Mother-of-two Claire Burton, 37, said: "Everything T-Mobile does is underhand.

"It does not go about things the right way."

The St Paul's Wood Hill resident added: "When we try and do things the right way it just does nothing."

Campaigner Sam Anderson, 35, said: "We're all pretty gutted.

"It is amazing T-Mobile goes to such an extent to have security guards there overnight and to double barricade themselves in.

"Surely this means nobody wants it."

The mother-of-three added: "It is typical. They have stabbed us in the back."

Mrs Anderson is focusing her attention on organising a mass march through central London to Downing Street.

Call 020 8302 4043 to get involved with the campaign.

A T-Mobile spokesman said: "We did not make any commitments about when work would restart and therefore did not break any agreements with the protesters.

"The security guards were there for health and safety reasons."

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

23. August 2006

Heute wird das Thema "Mindestlohn" im Bundeskabinett Thema sein. Die Regierung berät einen Gesetzentwurf, mit dem das Entsendegesetz für die Baubranche auf das Gebäudereiniger-Handwerk ausgedehnt werden soll. Dazu erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katja Kipping:

Es ist höchste Zeit für einen gesetzlichen Mindestlohn. Diese Forderung der Gewerkschaften und der Linkspartei.PDS ist zwar bei den Regierenden angekommen, aber, das Thema ist zu wichtig, als dass es weiterhin Spielball zwischen SPD und CDU sein darf. Der jetzt von Müntefering vorgelegte Vorschlag geht er am eigentlichen Problem vorbei. Es macht keinen Sinn, einen Mindestlohn nur für einzelne Branchen einzuführen. Das ist Etikettenschwindel. Notwendig ist ein gesetzlicher Mindestlohn für all jene, die keinen Tariflohn erhalten und für Armutslöhne arbeiten. Ein Mindestlohn nur für die Beschäftigten von einzelnen Branchen schafft neue soziale Ungerechtigkeiten und löst das Problem nicht. Vollkommen unverständlich ist, dass erneut unterschiedliche Sätze in Ost und West gelten sollen. Damit werden Ostdeutsche erneut als Bürger zweiter Klasse abgestempelt und das 16 Jahre nach Wiederherstellung der deutschen Einheit. Nach den heftigen Auseinandersetzungen in den vergangenen Tagen und der nach wie vor ablehnenden Haltung breiter Kreise der Union wird sich heute erstmals zeigen, wie ernst Angela Merkels jüngstes Bekenntnis zur sozialen Marktwirtschaft, zu Solidarität und Gerechtigkeit zu nehmen ist. Schöne Worte reichen nicht aus, die Regierungschefin muss auch handeln. Nur durch einen gesetzlichen Mindestlohn können Dumpinglöhne wirksam bekämpft werden. Die Linkspartei.PDS und der Fraktion DIE LINKE bleiben dabei: Von Arbeit muss man leben können unabhängig davon, in welcher Branche man tätig ist. Deshalb führen wir unsere Kampagne für einen gesetzlichen Mindestlohn von 8 Euro die Stunde fort. Das entspricht einem Einkommen oberhalb der Pfändungsfreigrenze, die derzeit bei monatlich 990 Euro liegt.

SMS fürs Selbstwertgefühl

BONN – Die meisten Jugendlichen in Deutschland besitzen bereits ein Handy. Wird das Gerät allzu oft aus der Tasche gezogen, sollten sich Eltern und Freunde Sorgen machen: Nach einer koreanischen Studie sind starke Handynutzer deutlich ängstlicher als ihre „unkommunikativen“ Altersgenossen und neigen eher zu depressiver Verstimmung.

Alle zehn Minuten prüften einige der 575 beobachteten Schüler, ob nicht eine SMS eingegangen sei. Die exzessiven Nutzer von Mobiltelefonen verschickten auch selbst ständig Nachrichten und telefonierten sehr lange. Eine südkoreanische Studie belege, dass diese Jugendlichen häufiger ängstlich und depressiv sind, so die Krankenkasse AOK. Die befragten Schüler gaben Frust und Langeweile als Grund an, wenn sie mehr als 90 Mal am Tag das Handy benutzten.

Den koreanischen Wissenschaftlern zufolge hängt hingegen oft ein niedriges Selbstwertgefühl mit der starken Handy­nutzung zusammen. Es sei beruhigend für die betroffenen Teen­ager, mit anderen in ständigem Kontakt zu stehen. Auch würden sie an der Zahl der eingegangenen SMS ihre eigene Popularität bemessen, so die Forscher. Die Gefahr sei groß, dass unsichere Jugendliche die Kurznachricht­en einem direkten Kontakt vorzögen und sich zunehmend sozial isolierten. Auch in Deutschland könnte dies zu einem Problem werden – immerhin besitzen schon über 90% der 12- bis 19-Jährigen ein Handy.

20 Amazing Facts About Voting in the USA

Read it and weep.

Where were Floridians marching out in the streets in protest after not one but TWO stolen elections? Where were the government workers who could have made government come to a complete standstill? Where was Kerry and his sidekick's promises about "every last vote"? Nowhere, of course. Aside from a few so-called "extremists" who actually had real nerve, the masses were behaving like good, law-abiding lambs, taking it with a stiff upper lip and a lot of lubricant.

Many have fooled themselves into believing that quiet desperation is the "civilized" way of making a statement. It's easier that way than to realize we face the responsibility of pruning our "tree of liberty" ourselves against our own government. Someone might call such a thing "radical" or "unstable."

By the way, a local elections watchdog told me that there were 5,000 votes undercounted in the Broward side of District 21 alone. Broward is just 20% of District 21. If this proportion holds consistent with Miami-Dade, it means a total of 25,000 votes went unreported for me. Instead of the 27.2% official result, I would've had 39%.

But what can I do alone if no one with any integrity or balls is going to stand up and fight on principle instead of parroting their Party leadership's "official" bunk? Where are the volumes of letters and boycotts and calls from INDEPENDENT THINKERS AND DOERS for firings of the big-mouthed bureaucrats who pull these dirty tricks?

Where are the throngs of people even now who supposedly have "had enough" lining up to volunteer for poll worker positions and other needed roles?

Fine job. The beatings--figurative and literal--will continue 'til your defiance, not your morale, improves, America.

It's not those who vote who determine the future. It's those who count the votes who determine it.

If you only knew how relatively little effort it takes for a small, dedicated group of people to change the world, you would have endlessly more confidence in yourselves.
