1) I do not subscribe to The Wire Report so I cannot share the entire article, but the title and the single snippet I found say a lot. The telecoms are concerned about interference with their 5G. How ironic. Perhaps they should be reminded about their interference with aviation.
Big three worry generic licensing for earth stations in motion will affect rural, remote 5G deployment
“Canada’s big three telecommunications companies are worried that generic licensing for earth stations in motion (ESIMs), in certain bands, will cause interference with 5G deployment and flexible use systems, the incumbents told Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) in replies, published Monday, to a consultation on earth stations and space stations“.
2) Experts are concerned and are alerting the public to the effects of children growing up with tablets, smartphones and other wireless gadgets. I hope you will share this with parents and grandparents in your families.
Growing up Healthy in a World of Digital Media
“Video Content: Smartphones, tablets, video games – the world in which our children live is changing rapidly. What do children need for a healthy development of their brains? What risks result from smartphones and surfing in the Internet? How does a cell phone and Internet addiction emerge, and what does the sensorial overload do to children? How can these risks be avoided?
Our children should grow up to become healthy, self-confident and intelligent people who can later endure the complex demands of life. For this to succeed, every child needs a variety of sensorial stimuli, very different movements, motivation and empathy. This is how the child’s brain can develop in a diversified way. This short- video is based on the findings of neurobiology. A 40-minute DVD (in German) with a deeper scientifical (sic) version of this video, presenting the findings of science and pedagogy in greater depth, can be ordered through the link:

3) Dr. Timothy Schoechle offers ideas to confront and prepare for events that could cause the power grid to fail: wildfires and bad storms, both of which are increasing due to climate change, cyberattacks, etc. See next item. There are other advantages to local microgrids. For example, the owner (the community) can decide when and what type of “upgrades”, such as 5G, are made.
INTELLIGENT ENERGY: Operating System for the Solar Homes and Microgrids of the Future
“These localized options are based on a grid network incorporating distributed quasi-independent community microgrids composed of individual prosumers, where every consumer is also a potential producer. These microgrids offer a new level of resiliency as well as efficiency, reliability, and decentralized autonomy by allowing microgrids to continue to function when the larger grid fails.”
4) Experts have been warning for years that the power grid is vulnerable to cyberattacks and that when one occurs, we will be in the dark ages for a long time. Now experts are warning about another type of attack that could cause even greater havoc. Another reason why microgrids should be seriously considered by communities and neighbourhoods.

Surprise Electromagnetic Attack From China Part of Beijing’s ‘New Blitzkrieg’ Strategy: Experts
“The United States is vulnerable to attack from an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), according to experts. Such an attack could devastate the nation’s power grid and wipe out vast swaths of the population.”
