1) Some very good news. A legal judgment found that San Francisco has the right to require permits before installing transmitters on city property, including poles along streets.
California Supreme Court Sides with Cities in Small Cell Faceoff
Justices unanimously upheld a 2011 San Francisco ordinance requiring telecommunications companies to get permits before placing antennas on city infrastructure. The ordinance said special attention would be paid to permits in scenic and historic areas.
San Francisco and other cities can protect their scenic views by prohibiting wireless telephone companies from installing antennas on utility poles, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday.
The justices unanimously upheld a 2011 San Francisco ordinance requiring telecommunications companies to obtain a city permit before installing large antennas and related equipment on roadside poles.
The ordinance said permit applications would be reviewed more closely in certain scenic and historic areas.”
2) Microwave radiation (EMR) was developed initially for use by the military as a weapon. It was never intended for use by the general public, but once it was released, there was no way to get it back in Pandora’s box. Scientists, the industry and the military have known for decades how dangerous exposure to this non-thermal radiation is, yet agencies like WHO and Health Canada mislead us by saying only thermal radiation’s heating does damage.
The Government, 5G/wireless industry perpetuate scientific fraud.
“The origin, history and nature of 1G through 4G reveal egregious Industry and Government (IG) deceit underpinned by scientific fraud. Foreknowledge of the dire consequences, beginning about two decades before market rollout, was concealed.
Virtually all governments and regulatory organizations – Federal Communications Commission, World Health Organization, and the reputed independent International Council on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, among others – perpetuate a blatant scientific fraud: The arbitrary assumption and single-minded assertion as an operating principle that the only potential danger from ICMR is thermal (tissue heating).
In fact, voluminous scientific literature beginning in the 1950’s showing harm from non-thermal power levels was ignored or dismissed, making the tobacco deception a mere pimple on the face of such evil.”
3) Non-RF/smeter. Cybersecurity. Interesting, isn’t it, that for some reason, the government seems to think Huawei isn’t a threat? https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/huawei-pompeo-canada-reaction-1.5028294
I wonder why the networks are secure but there is an acknowledged threat to the election process and data. Seems contradictory to me.
Canada can expect election interference, but not on scale seen in U.S
“Canadians are vulnerable to foreign interference in this fall’s federal election — and the meddling is already underway, according to a new report from Canada’s electronic spy agency.
The Communications Security Establishment says that since the 2015 federal election, Canadian political leaders and the Canadian public have been targeted by foreign cyber interference activities.
The details come in a new report entitled “2019 update: cyber threats to Canada’s democratic process,” released Monday.”

4) Oddly, Huawei is considering to sell its “5H” chips to Apple, but only Apple, to use in its phones. Apple is one of Huawei’s competitors, so why the offer to extend this new technology? Could it be that this affords an opportunity for Huawei to get acceptance and, along with it, access to the grid and our data?
Huawei is ‘open’ to selling its 5G modems, but only to Apple
“For years, Huawei has been developing its own high-powered processors and modems, all to power its big portfolio of mobile devices. And so far, the company has refused to sell any of those to its competitors. We’ve learned, however, that the company might be softening that stance. A source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed to Engadget that Huawei is now “open” to selling its 5G Balong 5000 chipsets, but only to one company: Apple.
Such a deal would be unusual, to say the least. Chip sales aren’t exactly Huawei’s forte, and a company representative said earlier this year in China that Huawei “Balong is mainly for supporting Huawei’s smart products, such as phones and IoT products, and is currently for Huawei’s internal use only.”

“We’ve arranged a society based on science and technology in which nobody understands *anything* about science and technology.
And this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces.”
