1) Phonegate has identified likely conflicts of interest, that were not disclosed, by yet another scientist who participated in the Mobi-kids project. There were about 36 authors of the report and Phonegate seems to be picking them off one by one. So far, 4 out of 36 ! Amazingly shoddy if not corrupt — that’s the way to get the answer industry wants.
Mobi-kids: A fourth expert, the Japanese Masao Taki, also conceals his conflicts of interest
“Masao Taki, a Japanese expert, is the fourth author of the Mobi-kids study [that analyzes the impact of wireless phones on the risk of brain tumors for young people] who has not declared his potential conflicts of interest with the mobile phone industry or his membership, until 2008, in the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)”.
2) I didn’t have this information in time to include in an earlier update. Too bad because it would be a good Zoom to participate in. You can get on Marg’s mailing list so you don’t miss future C4ST Open Meetings by emailing her at: email@example.com

3) Accelerated deployment of 5G without any consideration for health, environmental or, probably, interference problems. No time to ask “Is it safe?”
As satellite companies clear out of C-Band, Verizon adding 5G coverage
“Verizon in January activated its C-Band spectrum, won at auction in 2021, and immediately covered 100 million people with mid-band 5G. The year-end goal is to expand that coverage number to 175 million. And now, based on agreements that accelerate clearing of C-Band, Verizon is adding coverage this year in major metro markets, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver and Washington D.C….
Verizon EVP and President of Global Network and Technology Kyle Malady said in a statement, “We’ve been able to accelerate deployment because we’re driving more efficiency and coverage from the C-Band spectrum, leveraging opportunities like the one we are announcing today, and leveraging our already in place infrastructure…I have never experienced a network deployment move so quickly.””
