**This is the last update for 2018. The next update will be on Jan. 2, 2019. I wish all of you a very happy, healthy 2019.**
1) Glioblastomas are extremely aggressive brain cancers which, currently, cannot be cured. Many studies, the NTP, Ramazzini, and those by Dr. Hardell, have shown that cell phones and exposure to microwave radiation are linked to these horrible tumors. A treatment would be wonderful, but how much better it would be to not have people exposed to EMR.
Israelis discover promising treatment for aggressive brain tumors
“A new treatment for aggressive brain tumors (glioblastoma) shows great promise, according to a report by Israeli scientists that was published recently in the journal Nucleic Acids Research”
2) Many children received wireless devices and gadgets as gifts at Christmas. Most wireless devices have warnings hidden deep within their manuals (usually online manuals) saying that, like cell phones, should not be placed on or close to the body. Testing of these devices by the FCC in the US is done to determine if they meet the RF exposure guidelines. As Dr. Arazi has proven, the testing methods of cell phones is terribly deficient, and there is no reason to believe that testing of other wireless devices is any better. The FCC has tested laptops, for example, at 20 cm (nearly 8 inches) from the body, and the laptop manuals (e.g. Samsung’s) warn that laptops should be no closer than 20 cm from a pregnant woman’s or a teenager’s stomach. There are many such examples at the link below.
If you find any manuals that are not included here, would you please share? Send to me at:
firstname.lastname@example.org with “manual warning” on the subject line.
“All manufacturers of wireless devices from cell phones to Wi-Fi Speakers To Wi-Fi toys have warnings which describe the minimum distance devices must be kept away from users in order to not exceed the as-tested radiofrequency radiation limits for exposure to wireless radiation. For example, the FCC sets exposure limits for laptops so they are usually tested 20 cm away from the body…
“This transmitter must be at least 27 cm from the user and must not be co-located or operating with any other antennas or transmitter.”
3) In Oregon there is a new draft bill asking for improved, safer computer and internet access in schools as well as better information being provided to parents and teachers regarding scientific evidence regarding microwave radiation. Please see link below for the draft bill.
In BC even schools that have fiber optic cable that used to be used for computers now use wireless connections. Parents and teachers are not informed about the many studies showing the health effects suffered by those exposed for significant periods. Neither are parents told that children are most vulnerable. And neither are parents given a choice. The science is there. Why isn’t the precautionary principle being applied, at the very least?
“In Oregon we have a bill that has been introduced in both the Senate and the House that calls for the hard wiring of computers in schools and the elimination of wireless devices in the classroom. This is the third time this is being done but this time is quite a bit different. The bill is being introduced with the strong support of the chair of the senate health committee, Laurie Monnes-Anderson and the strong support of a member of the health committee of the house. We have picked up 5 sponsors prior to lobbying the bill and it looks like we have a chance this time. I know that everything has been eclipsed by 5G and other issues but we have been working on this and think that any step that brings attention to this will help advance the issue elsewhere. Below are the email addresses for the members of the Senate and House. Please email them and let them know that you support this and urge them to sign on as sponsors or vote for the bill when it comes up. Each attachment has the bill numbers that apply to each legislative body. The house bill is LC 3096 and the Senate is LC1414. These are temporary numbers but will do for now.
David Morrison / Portland OR. (the facebook website is from a nationwide group, Parents Across America that has taken this issue into their agenda. They have been working mostly on screen time and testing issues.
I have long been an NDP supporter but I must tell you how disappointed I am that the NDP is no more responsive than the Liberals. I and so many of my friends have written to Prem. Horgan, other cabinet members, and their MLAs about various issues, such as smart meters, the failure of the BC Provincial Health Minister and officials to respond to the recent studies showing that microwave radiation is carcinogenic, that wifi in schools is making children ill, that Telus, which is partnered with a Chinese company considered to be a security threat – Huawei, is allowed to install micro-cell towers outside our homes without our permission. Not only does the government not respond to the information that has been provided, their offices don’t even respond to the letters, emails and phone calls. This is not only arrogant, it is also negligent.
As you well know, it is difficult for many people to get the nerve to write to a political figure. Composing a letter with technical information to a public official is not only difficult and time-consuming, it also is intimidating. And then to get no response !! This has happened consistently ever since the NDP took office. I believe I speak for many when I say “we” are offended.
Then to get emails asking for donations… I ask, what have you done to deserve my attention let alone my money? Why should I believe you will act differently if you are elected again? How are you different from the Liberals who also ignored us?
Furthermore, Prem. Horgan, before he was elected, realized that the smart meter program was ill-conceived, that the opt out fees were onerous, and promised a full independent review. John Horgan was involved, concerned about the costs and the lack of oversight. After the NDP won the election, those of us who had hoped for help in reviewing this dangerous, expensive and unnecessary program were sorely disappointed.
I don’t agree that your “plan is working”. It hasn’t worked for me.

When we formed government, we committed to doing things differently. We promised British Columbians that we would take on big challenges: housing, child care, affordability, climate change, healthcare, and more.
And now as we approach the end of 2018, the results show our plan is working. Investing in people has paid dividends, and we’ve eliminated our province’s operating debt for the first time in 40 years.
But Andrew Wilkinson and the BC Liberals could put that all at risk, and we can’t let that happen.
We’ve worked hard to keep BC’s economy on track by making record investments in things that matter to people – including affordable housing, schools, hospitals, and child care. We’ve created good jobs while improving services you count on.
We have plenty of momentum, but so do the BC Liberals. If they beat us in fundraising, or in the upcoming by-election, it could put all this at risk.
But if we work together, we can to three things:
1. Defeat the BC Liberals in the most important by-election in BC history.
2. Keep the BC Liberals out of government and away from the important decisions that matter to people.
3. Continue the good work our government has just started.
When you donate $10 or more before our December 31 deadline, you’ll help us accomplish all this AND you will get up to 75% back on your 2018 taxes:
Thanks so much. We really appreciate your support.

On Thursday, Dec.27, I was visited by an alleged BC Hydro representative for the purpose of removing my Analog Meter and replacing it with a radio off Smartmeter. I say an “alleged” BC Hydro representative because he didn’t even give prior notice of his intention to visit me and did not wear an identification tag which I could identify him from. I was in my basement on my computer at the time and did not hear him knock on my front door as he claimed to have done. I came out and surprised him when I heard him starting to remove my meter, after using one of my buckets to stand on, a safety hazard in itself. At first he said he had knocked on my door and asked if I’d heard him, which I of course hadn’t. I asked him why he didn’t phone me as well since he could have easily seen that there was a light on in the basement. But as he showed me, his work order didn’t even include my phone number. Then I asked him to identify himself and he showed me his ID tag. The picture could have been a younger picture of him but I didn’t think it looked like him, not at his present age at least. There was no name on the tag, just a number and I found that to be very insulting, to expect a customer to be able to remember a Hydro employee by their number. I believe it was 407 something. When I pressed further for his name, he said it was Dwayne, without giving a last name. So “Dwayne,” if that was his real name, had entered my property and ignored my No Trespassing Corix sign (and please don’t tell me that Corix has no relation to BC Hydro or that “Dwayne “doesn’t work for Corix.He was still doing the same job, regardless) which is signed and dated by myself, has been in place since 2012, and of which BC Hydro was made aware by myself. He made no apology and displayed an arrogant, condocending attitude as he explained that my meter seal was expired and he was there to replace my Analog meter with a radio off smartmeter. I then told him that I had talked to a Kathren about this and was waiting for a callback from a supervisor about my request that my meter be replaced with another Analog Meter. Of course he gave me the usual line about no more Analog Meters being available. That’s something which I told him isn’t true, according to BC’s own energy minister.
“Dwayne” in his arrogance, said that he was younger than me and stronger and could replace the meter if he wanted to.He then could have expected a visit from the police. However, he then said that he didn’t care if I wished to be charged the $65 failed connection fee. Finally he left after his bullying comment that cutoffs would begin in April. I told him that the media would certainly be informed and I don’t think the headline would look very good for BC Hydro if it reads Hydro Cuts Off Single Senior With Heart Condition- refuses to provide Analog Meter.
I want to know, is this your idea of customer service, after all my years of paying my bill to BC Hydro, to be charged $65 because I refused to be intimidated by a complete stranger, making an unannounced visit to me, allegedly from BC Hydro? As yet, I still haven’t received a callback from a Hydro supervisor. These dictatorial tactics must be exposed and condemned.

Happy New Year to All !!
