Cell phone radiation is the new tobacco – Mobile phone industry propagandists freak out over NTP study

It took several decades for the US government to accept a link between tobacco and cancer. It will take many more decades to prove the link between wireless radiation and cancer. Unfortunately, by then, human civilization would have gone past Idiocracy (the movie) state and reached the Planet of the Apes state.

DAILY MAIL: A woman who carried a phone in her bra for 10 years was diagnosed with cancer.

US government will go to war on a mere suspicion that the leader of some oil-rich country is harboring thoughts of acquiring nuclear weapons. Citing non-existent terrorists, they will ask citizens in their country and outside to give up their rights for the “greater common good.” But, when scientific studies suggest a possible health risk to the population, they prefer to look away.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the US government had formed the National Toxicology Program (NTP) to conduct a large-scale study on the link between cancer and mobile phone radiation. The preliminary results indicate that there may be a risk of cancer for phone radiation. Scientific American says:

The researchers found that as the thousands of rats in the new study were exposed to greater intensities of RF radiation, more of them developed rare forms of brain and heart cancer that could not be easily explained away, exhibiting a direct dose–response relationship. Overall, the incidence of these rare tumors was still relatively low, which would be expected with rare tumors in general, but the incidence grew with greater levels of exposure to the radiation. Some of the rats had glioma—a tumor of the glial cells in the brain—or schwannoma of the heart. Furthering concern about the findings: In prior epidemiological studies of humans and cell phone exposure, both types of tumors have also cropped up as associations.

In contrast, none of the control rats—those not exposed to the radiation—developed such tumors. But complicating matters was the fact that the findings were mixed across sexes: More such lesions were found in male rats than in female rats. The tumors in the male rats “are considered likely the result of whole-body exposure” to this radiation, the study authors wrote. And the data suggests the relationship was strongest between the RF exposure and the lesions in the heart, rather than the brain: Cardiac schwannomas were observed in male rats at all exposed groups, the authors note. But no “biologically significant effects were observed in the brain or heart of female rats regardless of modulation.” Based on these findings, Portier said that this is not just an associated finding—but that the relationship between radiation exposure and cancer is clear. “I would call it a causative study, absolutely. They controlled everything in the study. It’s [the cancer] because of the exposure.”

Even before the news trickled out, the media has been flooded with articles asking people not to freak out. They are also muddying the debate by taking cheap shots at sellers of radiation shields and other such products.

This guy is a lobbyist for the phone industry but hides it in his op-ed articles.

The industry propagandists hide their affiliation by adding a non-disclaimer disclaimer to the article – “Views expressed in this article are personal.” Apart from them, there are sellouts from the medical/scientific profession who have been encouraged write articles and even maintain entire websites and blogs to propagate the idea that cell phone radiation is safe. All of them cite prestigious organizations such as WHO and Mayo Clinic as having cleared cell phone radiation. Unfortunately, most “studies” are just surveys made on other studies. The original studies have serious limitations and/or are not conclusive enough.

The World Health Organization (WHO) formed International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) to study the issue. IARC designated that cell phone radiation was possibly carcinogenic. Possibly under pressure from telecoms, WHO later announced that there is no link. It currently has a study to be released this year that will conclusively prove/disprove the link.

The propagandists are not above making false statements or making wrong conclusions. This hack from Business Insider says that rats were exposed to radiation levels that do not correspond to those exposed to humans. With all the Wi-Fi and mobile data (2G/3G/4G/5G) networks connecting all the apps (that report back to home base all the time), Bluetooth devices, smart watches and bands including the hyped-up Internet of Things (IoT) coupled with the equally hyped-up Big Data, the rats would have got comparatively less radiation. One of the most abominable views espoused by them is that the mobile phone waves, which can pass through buildings and underground, cannot get below the skin!

If it is 100% sure that there is no risk of cancer for wireless radiation sources, then why do government websites still carry precautionary measures against cancer. These pages should be removed.

Government web pages on cancer recommend that phone exposure be limited.

Scientists and doctors are having a tough time with demands to provide unassailable “SCIENCE-BASED” conclusions. For now, they are citing studies that show no link while advising people to take precautions. Propagandists meanwhile will laugh all the way to bank.

 

 

 

“Facial video capture and reenactment” software make it easy to create fake videos

Terrorists and other criminals can claim CCTV footage as fake. Even fake godmen like Nithyananda can absolve themselves of any disrepute. Intelligence and investigative agencies can manufacture false evidence for their false cases and false-flag terrorism acts. Despite so much advancement in technology, all that Obama got for his belated fake birth certificate was a total fail. Hypnotism and mind-altering drugs has powered many mass-shooters in America.

 

 

Microsoft Office Ribbon sucks – Julie Larson-Green should design prison complexes instead of software UI

Nobody will ever get out of the maze.

The only ribbon you will ever need is a custom one. Right-click on the stupid ribbon and create a new tab. Drag and drop all the commands you want on that tab. Disable all other tabs.

Microsoft Word can export your custom toolbar settings to a file named as “Word Customizations.exportedUI” so make sure you do that for backup and for easy import to other Office installations.

Why does it take several days, even in Delhi, for “electronic” voting machines to reveal the result? To bake in BJP votes and switch AAP’s!

EVMs can reveal the results on the same days as voting but Indian Election Commission always waits several days before counting. This is probably when the foreign-made chips are reprogrammed based on negotiations with US and UK embassies. If the ruling dispensation fails to reassure the foreigners, they lose.

Sudden surge in voting (not witnessed) but recorded in the evening shows that voting machines had started polling absentee votes for BJP.

Are EVMs safe, asks AAP?

Archive.org & GitHub blocked by a-holes in Indian Intelligence Bureau and national security establishment! Can these incompetent fools protect you from terrorists?

These idiots can’t tell an URL from a website but they want hundreds or thousands of crores of rupees to fight “cyber” (cyber-security contracts to shady American/Israeli firms).

The Department of Telecom is so much involved in corruption and incompetence that they couldn’t have come up with any national security threat from these websites. Then who recommended their blocking? Obviously, it was the longtime Pakistani spy who currently acts as the national security advisor to Modi. Or, it is the Intelligence Bureau who briefs the PM daily on imagined threats dreamed up by US/UK embassy officials.

Proprietary software means better quality, right? Wrong! Try Windows Update – IV

Windows Update should be renamed Windows Obstipate

Windows Update is the probably the worst part of the OS. The downloads tend to be huge and hog all bandwidth. This means you can’t let it download updates in the background. No, you can’t do the update when you are working. Either it stops you from shutting down or it prevents you from logging in upon restart. It seems to be deliberately designed to slow you down and get on your nerves. Just when you want to shut down and leave, that stupid piece of *@#$*&) has the temerity to say “Don’t shut down your computer.”

Ever wondered why bootup is taking so long? Even before showing you the login screen, Windows is downloading stuff from the Internet and installing them. I literally pull the plug on this one – by removing the LAN cable. Then, Windows sheepishly gets to the login screen without issue. You see, this software was written by a monkey and for a monkey. If you you try to use it, it will make a monkey out of you! It is not designed for human beings.

Microsoft Windows Update should ideally be renamed Windows Obstipate.
