1) SENATOR BLUMENTHAL AGAIN STRIVING TO DO-THE-RIGHT-THING
Here’s the first paragraph of:
“Washington (September 30, 2021) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), members of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, along with Congresswoman Kathy Castor (FL-14) today reintroduced the Kids Internet Design and Safety (KIDS) Act, legislation to stop online practices such as manipulative marketing, amplification of harmful content, and damaging design features, which threaten young people online. The re-introduction of the legislation comes as the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security today holds a hearing regarding harms to children online, including Facebook’s research into the impact of its apps on young audiences.”
2) CANADIAN OPERATOR PLANS 5G FIXED WIRELESS SERVICES, PRIVATE NETWORKS
TeraGo on track with 5G core network upgrades
“In February, TeraGo expanded 5G fixed wireless access(FWA) tech trials in the Toronto area after starting the trials last year.”
“TeraGo’s fixed wireless spectrum assets include 14 of 20 licenses issued in the 24 GHz band and 25 of 27 licenses issued in the 38 GHz band, covering 2,120 megahertz of spectrum in Canada’s six largest cities. TeraGo maintains a fixed wireless network with a redundant fiber optic backbone.”

3) ELECTRIC VEHICLES. AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES. WIND POWER
For the past year or so, during almost every webinar that I stick my head into where there’s a government representative speaking, no matter what non-EMF issue is being discussed, at some point someone asks the government rep, “What’s the solution to the problem?” And the government rep replies, “Electrify it.”
And so many webinars have speakers, audience members, whoever else touting the goal of “Net-Zero emissions” by whatever target year. Whether for vehicles or anything else, can we get “Net-Zero emissions” to mean restricting not only chemical emissions but also EMF emissions? Wouldn’t that be totally “forward-looking”?
Below are some excerpts from a recent article, and then the link to the entire article.
“California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed two climate-oriented bills: one opening the state to offshore wind energy production, and another establishing zero-emission requirements for autonomous vehicles.
Assembly Bill 525 requires the California Energy Commission to set offshore wind goals for 2030 and 2045, under the 100 Percent Clean Energy Act of 2018.
The governor also signed legislation requiring autonomous vehicles to be zero-emission vehicles by 2030.
AVs are already evolving as electric vehicles, with roughly half the vehicles being tested in the country being electric, said Mollie D’Agostino, policy director at the University California, Davis, Policy Institute where she focuses on the evolution of shared, electric and automated vehicles.
“That’s pretty good. The AV industry is forward-looking,” said D’Agostino last month during a webinar to discuss the intersection between electric vehicles and autonomous technology.”
