CHILDREN are being encouraged to use mobile phones in school despite dire warnings from health chiefs.

Becta, a government advisory group set up to promote technology in schools, has published a study recommending a “gradual adoption” of mobiles until their use is “as natural as any other technology” employed in lessons.

The study flies in the face of Department of Health advice and the Government’s own expert report on mobile phones produced by Sir William ­Stewart, which concluded that “the use of mobile phones by children should be minimised,” due to potential health risks.



Parents concerned by school wi-fi

More than 40 parents have signed a petition against the installation of a wi-fi internet connection at a Merseyside primary school.

They fear radiation emitted from the system could leave pupils at Woodlands primary in Formby with a range of conditions, including brain problems.

School head Simon Grilli told parents the wi-fi would be set up next week.



These pages cover the science on wi-fi in detail

The two downloadable fact sheets at the top at are summaries which can be shown to the employer – one gives detailed technical advice to reduce the exposures.

Of course in my view you can do no better than watch the Panorama programme on the dangers of Wifi as follows (courtesy of Mast Sanity):

Obama Leaning Toward 34,000 More Troops for Afghanistan

Jonathan S. Landay, John Walcott and Nancy A. Youssef, McClatchy Newspapers: "President Barack Obama is nearing a decision to send more than 30,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan next year, but he may not announce it until after he consults with key allies and completes a trip to Asia later this month, administration and military officials have told McClatchy."

Rethinking Afghanistan: Alternatives to War

Robert Dodge, Truthout: "President Obama is reviewing the way forward in Afghanistan. His decision will define his presidency much as Vietnam defined the legacy of President Johnson's presidency in the 1960s. At a time when so much opportunity and necessity for change is at stake from health care reform to climate change legislation, education and nuclear weapons policy and the economy, the war and its costs will trump all."

The War Stampede

Norman Solomon, Truthout: "Disputes are raging within the Obama administration over how to continue the US war effort in Afghanistan. A new leak tells us that Washington's ambassador in Kabul, former four-star Gen. Karl Eikenberry, has cautioned against adding more troops while President Hamid Karzai keeps disappointing American policymakers. This is the extent of the current debate within the warfare state."


U.S. Gen. Casey says more troops needed for Afghanistan

"I believe that we need to put additional forces into Afghanistan to give General McChrystal the ability to both dampen the successes of the Taliban while we train the Afghan civilian forces," Gen. Casey said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Afghanistan: more troops may not be the answer, says Obama adviser

"You can keep on putting troops in, and you could have 200,000 troops there and Afghanistan will swallow them up as it has done in the past," he said, according to comments published by the magazine's website in English and German.

Afghan insurgents learn to destroy key U.S. armored vehicle

Taliban-led insurgents in Afghanistan have devised ways to cripple and even destroy the expensive armored vehicles that offer U.S. forces the best protection against roadside bombs by using increasingly large explosive charges and rocket-propelled grenades, according to U.S. soldiers and defense officials.

Obama narrows US Afghan strategy to 4 options

Gen. Stanley McChrystal - the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan - has told the president that the U.S. mission there is headed for failure unless the president sends an additional 40,000 troops. Sources tell The Associated Press that the president will add tens of thousands more forces, though probably not quite the 40,000 McChystal is seeking.

US envoy warns against troop surge in Afghanistan

Memos from Eikenberry state extra troops 'not a good idea' until Karzai government tackles corruption, according to reports.

Why the Afghan Surge Will Fail

Before the Obama administration buys into General Stanley McChrystal's escalation strategy, it might spend some time examining the August 12 battle of Dananeh, a scruffy little town of 2,000 perched at the entrance to the Naw Zad Valley in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province.

Afghanistan: US envoy objects to troop increase
