San Diego Mass Surveillance Without Oversight

City of San Diego Awarded GE Mass Surveillance Contract Without Oversight.
San Diego is now home to the largest mass surveillance operation across the country

While the California Legislature passed and Governor Brown signed the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) into law in 2018, ostensibly to help California consumers protect their online data, state and local government doesn’t appear to be required to comply with this law.

Recently we learned that the Department of Motor Vehicles is earning more than $50-million a year by selling California drivers’ personal information, and the public is not offered an opt-out option of sharing personal information.

Now we learn that San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliott gave the approval to General Electric to outfit 4,000 new “smart street lights” with cameras and microphones in 2017. These CityIQ Nodes are listed on this city map and in the screen shot below.
The City of San Diego appears to now be in the business of enabling mega-data companies to cash in on city residents’ privacy.

Alzheimer’s Increasing In Millennials

The number of millennials with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease is surging, report finds

Between 2013 and 2017, early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s diagnoses increased by 83% among commercially insured Americans aged 30 to 44, according to a report released by the health care insurer. That age group includes the oldest millennials.

Overall, early-onset diagnoses increased by 200% among commercially insured Americans between ages 30 to 64. That included a 50% jump among those 45 to 54 and by 40% for those aged 55 to 64.

The average patient was diagnosed at age 49.

“The results of this report are concerning, especially the increase in early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease among younger people,” Dr. Richard Snyder, chief medical officer for Independence Blue Cross, said in a statement.

We Have No Reason To Believe 5G Is Safe

 

Since 5G is a new technology, there is no research on health effects, so we are “flying blind” to quote a U.S. senator. However, we have considerable evidence about the harmful effects of 2G and 3G. Little is known the effects of exposure to 4G, a 10-year-old technology, because governments have been remiss in funding this research. Meanwhile, we are seeing increases in certain types of head and neck tumors in tumor registries, which may be at least partially attributable to the proliferation of cell phone radiation. These increases are consistent with results from case-control studies of tumor risk in heavy cell phone users.

The latest cellular technology, 5G, will employ millimeter waves for the first time in addition to microwaves that have been in use for older cellular technologies, 2G through 4G. Given limited reach, 5G will require cell antennas every 100 to 200 meters, exposing many people to millimeter wave radiation. 5G also employs new technologies (e.g., active antennas capable of beam-forming; phased arrays; massive multiple inputs and outputs, known as massive MIMO) which pose unique challenges for measuring exposures.

Millimeter waves are mostly absorbed within a few millimeters of human skin and in the surface layers of the cornea. Short-term exposure can have adverse physiological effects in the peripheral nervous system, the immune system and the cardiovascular system. The research suggests that long-term exposure may pose health risks to the skin (e.g., melanoma), the eyes (e.g., ocular melanoma) and the testes (e.g., sterility).

Can EMFs Affect Your Pets?

 

Can electromagnetic fields impact our pets? If you are thinking about EMFs, no doubt you’re caught up thinking about how they impact your own health or your kid’s health. But what about your dog, cat, pet rabbit or guinea pig? Your pets probably spend more time cooped-up in your home than you do. Are they affected? How badly are they affected? And in what ways? In this guest post, vet Dr. Patricia Jordan lays out the science (plus plenty of anecdotal evidence) and shares how you can effectively protect your pets:

Both in home visits and in the virtual office consultation practice I have, both humans and the animals are sharing chronic diseases, mental and behavioral issues. Both humans and animals are getting a lot of cancer in particular.
There were plenty of problems for the clients and the pets once smart meters are installed. Most of the time the client is not even aware a smart meter has been installed. Or if they saw it they didn’t have a clue as to what it is and what it does and why it is crucial to the history in the development of the disease.

One of the dogs developed lymphoma sleeping in front of a smart meter that had been installed without the client’s knowledge. The dog performed “coyote watch” every night sleeping on hay bales that were placed in front of this meter. She was gone within a week of finding out she had this cancer…

Electronics in the bedroom: Why it’s necessary to turn off before you tuck in.

 

 

 

Electronics, Light and the Science of Sleep

There is robust scientific data documenting the role of light in promoting wakefulness. Photoreceptors in the retina sense light and dark, signaling our brain about the status of the outside world and aligning our circadian rhythms (centered in a small region of the hypothalamus called the suprachiasmatic nucleus) to the external day-night cycle. This signaling of light and dark helps us to be alert in the morning and be able to fall asleep at the appropriate time at night. The power of light as an alerting agent is easily conceptualized when we think of the sun, but may be more difficult to appreciate when considering the light emitted from a tablet or smartphone.

Nonetheless, careful studies have shown that even our small electronic devices emit sufficient light to miscue the brain and promote wakefulness. As adults we are subject to these influences and our children are particularly susceptible.

Children, Electronics and Sleep

The increasing prevalence of electronics in children’s bedrooms creates a culture of evening engagement and light exposure that negatively impacts sleep time, sleep quality and daytime alertness. Literature shows that:

  • Children using electronic media as a sleep aid to relax at night have been shown to have later weekday bedtimes, experience fewer hours of sleep per week and report more daytime sleepiness.
  • Adolescents with a bedroom television have later bedtimes, more difficulty initiating sleep and shorter total sleep times.
  • Texting and emailing after lights outs, even once per week, dramatically increases self-reported daytime sleepiness among teens.
  • Not all electronic usage is recreational as the burden of homework is great for many of our children and their work is often completed on the computer, a significant light source late in the evening.
  • Increased academic demands, busy social and extracurricular schedules and the lure of entertainment conspire to keep our children electronically engaged at night.

Many children are not fulfilling basic sleep requirements and adequate sleep is essential for growth, learning, mood, creativity and weight control.  Understanding the influence of light and evening engagement on sleep is the first step in helping parents address the dilemma of electronics in the bedroom.
