Pinner residents angry at council gaffe over phone masts

4:07pm Tuesday 24th March 2009

By Tristan Kirk

FURIOUS Pinner residents are facing life opposite an unwanted mobile phone after blundering council officers failed to reject the application in time.

Harrow Council turned down a bid by Orange for an 11.5m high mast on a small piece of grass at the junction between Grove Road and Rayners Lane, after dozens of resident objected to the plans.

But a council officer missed the 56-day deadline to let know Orange know their application had been turned down, meaning the phone company can put up the unwanted mast by default.

Phone-mast plan sparks objections

24 March 2009

BECCLES residents have spoken out against plans for a mobile phone mast just over 20m from their homes.

Vodafone is looking at sites for a new 10m-tall mobile phone mast in a bid to keep up with the latest technology and boost signal strength for users.

Before submitting a formal planning application, it sought the views of the council about the location of the mast.

But their preferred site, on Gresham Road, near the Tesco turn-off from George Westwood Way, has angered some residents.


Pensioner's worry over phone masts

Published Date: 23 March 2009

Antennae on office roof spark health fear

A worried pensioner is raising health fears over a planning application submitted to South Bedfordshire District Council for three mobile phone masts on an office rooftop opposite his home.

The application requests three antennae on separate mounts with equipment cabinets and associated works on the roof of Lavells House in Hockliffe Street/Leston Road, but the 72-year-old is concerned about the health effects on people living or working nearby.

The pensioner's home sits only 40 yards away from the site, and when he received notification of the scheme alarm bells started ringing.


Agro-Gentechnik, ein Fall für den UN-Menschenrechtsausschuss

ödp-Vortrag:"Agro-Gentechnik – ein Fall für den UN-Menschenrechtsausschuss !“ Referentin: Christiane Lüst Dienstag, 14. April 2009, 19.30 Uhr - Einlass 19:00 Uhr – Der Eintritt ist frei In den Räumen des Hansa-Hauses , Brienner Str. 39, Rgb., (Rahnstüberl) MVV-Haltestellen: Königsplatz (U2) oder Stiglmaierplatz (U1/Tram 20+21).

"Aber Frau Lüst, hier sind Sie falsch, das ist kein Menschenrechts- sondern ein Umweltthema!" war die spontane Reaktion der Mitglieder des UN-Menschenrechtsausschusses, als Christiane Lüst ihren ersten Bericht zum Thema Agro-Gentechnik vorgelegt hat. Mittlerweile ist die Situation völlig anders: Die Ausschussmitglieder waren sehr betroffen und haben das Problem erkannt. Grundlage der Befassung des UN-Menschenrechtsausschusses mit Themen der Agro- Gentechnik ist der Internationale Menschenrechtspakt, der das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung der Völker (und der Einwohner eines jeden Landes), auf Gesundheit und unbelastete, gesundheitlich unbedenkliche und sichere Nahrungsmittel aus nachhaltiger, ressourcenschonender Produktion beinhaltet. Das umfasst die Pflicht einer Regierung die Verfügbarkeit und die Nutzung vorhandener Ressourcen zu gewährleisten. Die Bürger sollen Zugang zu Nahrungsmitteln haben, ohne in Abhängigkeiten zu geraten. Das beinhaltet auch, dass die Staaten "für einen angemessenen Schutz der Verbraucher vor betrügerischen Marktpraktiken, Desinformation und gesundheitlich bedenkliche Nahrungsmitteln" sorgen und eine Kontamination von Nahrungsmitteln sowie den Rückgang von pflanzengenetischen Ressourcen verhindern müssen. Auch Deutschland hat den Pakt ratifiziert und wird sich 2010 in Genf über Menschenrechtsverletzungen durch die Agro-Gentechnik in Deutschland verantworten müssen. Die Referentin, Gründerin der internationalen Organisation Aktion GEN-Klage, verfaßt gerade ihren 4. Bericht für den Ausschuss. Diesmal - nach Österreich, Kanada und Indien - über Menschenrechtsverletzungen in Brasilien. Ergänzend zum Vortrag zeigt die Gautingerin eine Kurzfassung des Films „Leben außer Kontrolle“.

Follow the bailout cash

by Michael Isikoff and Dina Fine Maron


There was plenty of outrage on Capitol Hill last week over the executive bonuses paid out by AIG after getting federal bailout money. But another money trail could make voters just as angry: the campaign dollars to members of Congress from banks and firms that have received billions via the Troubled Asset Relief Program. A Newsweek review of recent filings with the Federal Election Commission found that the political action committees of five big TARP recipients doled out $85,300 to members in the first two months of this year — with most of the cash going to those who serves [sic] on committees who oversee the TARP program.


Enough about the AIG bonuses: Focus on the banks’ billions

New York Daily News
by Michael Goodwin


Get ready to take out the AIG pitchforks again. This time, there is an important use for them. Now that the hysteria over the $165 million in bonuses is cooling, two inquiries aim to find out what AIG did with the bulk of its federal bailout money. Given the $175 billion at stake, those pitchforks can help dig through the details of who is getting huge chunks of taxpayer cash. It’s a twist on the adage to ‘follow the money.’ Finally, probers are following the big money. Against the billions that have vanished, and with more on the hook as AIG unwinds its trading portfolio, Washington’s outrage over the millions paid for bonuses counts as a trivial pursuit. And with the Obama administration seeking new powers to take over troubled companies, the handling of AIG is a test case for whether the government can be trusted with that power. So far, the signs aren’t good. The probes are likely to add to the doubts...

US tried to gag British man ‘tortured’ in Guantanamo

Independent [UK]


The American government tried to force a British resident held at Guantanamo Bay to drop allegations of torture in return for his release, court documents published yesterday revealed. Binyam Mohamed, 30, held by the US for nearly seven years, was told by the American military that he could win his freedom if he pleaded guilty to terrorism charges, ended his High Court case to prove his claims of torture and agreed not to speak to the media about his ordeal. He rejected the deal...

Judgment Day for Geithner

By Mike Whitney

Insolvent financial institutions have to be taken into receivership and liquidated. Shareholders and bondholders will have to take a haircut.

Obama should mull over Albert Einstein's sage advice when he said, "The problems we face today cannot be solved by the minds that created them."



China Urges New Money Reserve to Replace Dollar


In another indication that China is growing increasingly concerned about holding huge dollar reserves, the head of its central bank has called for the eventual creation of a new international currency reserve to replace the dollar.

China and other emerging nations back Russia's call for a discussion on how to replace the dollar as the world's primary reserve currency, a senior Russian government source said on Thursday. Russia has proposed the creation of a new reserve currency, to be issued by international financial institutions, among other measures in the text of its proposals to the April G20 summit.
