Mobile phones and WiFi radiation health risks

There have been many skeptics since the very initial introduction of wireless service about what the constant exposure to radiation can do to human health and the nature surrounding it.

While the world is bracing for the launch of 5G services the question of the health risks looms large.

The result of the extensive study that was conducted by the National Institutes of Health, US was inconclusive. The 10 year study was conducted using 2G and 3G wireless radiation exposure on animals for 9 hours each day. While it did show the increased risk of mutation leading to the growth of tumors or tissue and DNA damage in a group of rodents, another group did not show any evident health issues related to the exposure.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has cited exposure to radiation as a potent carcinogen for humans. It means that long term exposure to radiations could result in extensive damage.

But here is something to think about. The studies were conducted on animals that were expo…

Some Will Condemn Ayn Rand And Proselytize Plato

Many would say that Ayn Rand's philosophy is amiss and then point to Plato for their philosophical wisdom. Not long ago, I had such a conversation with a very well-educated fellow and think tanker type. He condemned Ayn Rand and took out of context an event in one of her stories that she was in favor or secret societies. Still, the thought that Ayn Rand would applaud 'secret societies' is a misread of her views. Remember Ayn Rand was very much against the elitists and socialists. I don't need to defend her, I don't really care, her legacy speaks for itself, but since you asked.

My well versed friend cited Plato's work as a more well-rounded and relevant take on how societies, governments, and civilizations should run. Now then, I don't necessarily buy into Plato much. Remember Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle came one after another, you know who was next? The culmination of their knowledge was mentored to Alexander the Great and what did he …

Escape the Not-So-Merry-Go-Round

From my office window, I can see where the city has set up a carousel as part of its holiday celebration - it goes well with the 100-foot Christmas tree.

Watching the spangled, white horses frozen mid-prance as they travel in endless revolutions, I can't help but think that we are stuck in the same loop, and that's not good for our economy.

You see, Cisco Systems' CEO, Chuck Robbins, commented on CNBC this week that if the company were to repatriate the billions it's currently holding overseas, there would be a flood into dividends, buybacks, and mergers and acquisitions activity.

Chuck didn't talk about grand expansion plans, reinvesting in his employees or buying new equipment - all things that would greatly benefit the American economy.

He talked about dividends and buybacks - avenues that put money in the pockets of the 1% and Wall Street savvy. Not the American middle class that keeps the economy growing quarter after quarter.

Poems Discovered From My Deothang Diary: Nature, Sex and Loneliness

1
Sky frozen
all around life shivers:
autumn gloom

2
The narrow path teems
with creepers both sides waving-
trees grow

3
Smiling women
too conspiring to understand-
alien tongue

4
There is no tree
over the mountain
I rest under the shade
of a wandering cloud

5
Celebrating
in the guttural grave
shadow's bodiness

6
Meeting at night
she chuckles and looks
a witch

7
Reconcile
inner jerks in the train
homeward

8
Near the railway track
she squats with hand on the knees
and hides her parts
in half-dark the naked truth
transforms nature into nude

9
In the cathedral of night
over-run by sex-bugs
he's turned a zombie
to write verse with one hand
and rub flesh with the other

10
Tongue of death
in my temple
flagellation of Christ-
nudes couple in the mind
Titan, Renoir, Francesca
Botticelli and all

11
Falling shadows mock
my impotence, curse me
for standing alone
like a Christ on the pavement
begging for crucifixion

12
Man is an animal
with a peculiar smell
thought Bertolt Brecht
she…

What To Look For In An Electronic Recycler

A serious threat is posed by electronic waste to both the population and the environment, when disposed off incorrectly. The fastest growing segment of waste in the industrialized world is represented by e-waste or electronic waste. Recycling your old electronics helps to keep your organization and home free from the heap of old equipments, helping to create a safer, healthier and cleaner environment.

As a part of an organisation and as an individual, when we improperly dispose off hazardous waste, we become responsible for the damage that is being created. Responsible e-waste recycling means how the material is processed, who is doing the processing and being careful about where your e-waste is taken for recycling.

Laws and regulations

Electronic recyclers are not made equally. Before you decide to drop off your e-waste with the hope of having it properly recycled and processed, there are certain things that need to be asked. Responsible recyclers should provide wri…

How Does The Flu Shot Work?

Medical experts recommend that everybody should get a flu shot before the peak flu season begins, which is from December to March. However, many people simply prefer not to take it because of the mistaken notion that taking the vaccine will actually give them the flu. There is a reason why people believe this.
It is a known fact that vaccines actually contain the virus that they are made to kill. This means, in the case of the flu vaccine, it actually contains the flu virus. This naturally triggers the question - won't it then cause the symptoms in the person who gets the shot?

To understand how this works, take a look at how vaccines work.

How flu shots work

The influenza virus is first deactivated and then used to prepare the vaccine. About ten to fourteen days after you've received the flu shot, the deactivated viruses help to develop antibodies in your body. These new antibodies are strong and robust enough to prevent any new influenza viruses from invading th…
