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…

Treat Yourself: The Perks Of Luxury Cruises

Luxury cruises are on the rise, and it looks like they can't be stopped. Over the last ten years, there has been 23% more growth in cruise vacations than their land-based counterparts. This growth has been helped by the fact that 80% of people who have been on a cruise stated that they would go again. And with the ever-growing range of perks available to luxury travelers, who can blame them?

Personalised Chef Service
Chefs on luxury cruise ships will respond to your personal food cravings. Want to try Capri's famous ravioli Caprese while you float in the island's crystal-clear waters? The ship's multi-skilled staff will bring it to life for you.

An Insider's Guide To Planning Your Cruise

Once you have handled the standard travel preparations, here are some less obvious items to pack and some valuable tips to assist you in cruising the seven seas.

Things To Pack


Bring Your Documentation - Have the right credentials, or you may get stuck on the ship at ports of call. Email yourself a digital copy of all travel documents and itinerary commitments for easy access and organisation.

Dress For The Occasion - Pack evening wear to attend formal dinners and adhere to nightly dress codes. Bring a light coat or sweater because cruise lines keep low indoor temperatures.

Consider Your Children's Trip - Bring a wearable baby carrier to stay mobile with your little one. Carry two-way radios to communicate with your family without using cell phones. Take sturdy clips to keep your child's towel from flying away on the windy deck.

Stay In Charge - Pack a power strip to charge multiple devices; most rooms have very few power outlets in the room. Get a mobile USB charger to power devi…

Five Activities to Help You Escape From Life

Everyone needs a break at times. The hustle and bustle of being a mother or father combined with work and constantly needing to be somewhere can take its toll on both the body and mind. When the mind does not get a break, it results in mental illness. When the body does not get a break, it gets worn down, the immune system grows weak and diseases like cancer start to develop.

Instead of letting the modern world destroy the body and mind, use these five activities to give it the break that it desperately needs.

Wild camp
Wild camp provides everyone with a break from the modern world. There are no noisy highways or tall buildings. Instead, wild camp is just a few good friends and the great outdoors. Families do not need to have experience with this to book an event.

Instead, experienced staff will help everyone that wants to participate in wild camp eat food that is cooked over a roaring fire, learn new and fun skills and they will guarantee that everyone gets the break that they need.

Review These Areas Before Selecting a Service Provider for Aviation Infrastructure and Management

Aviation is the transportation lifeline of a country and works as the economic cornerstone for many parties with vested interests.

Five Sins Of Cruising

While going on a cruise is definitely an angelic experience, we all know that sometimes when we're on vacation we let some our normal inhibitions go, which can lead to some "sinful" behavior. As they say, what happens at sea stays at sea. Don't worry though, a cruise is meant for you to loosen up and let go of your inhibitions. See how many of these "sins" sound familiar to you.

Sloth
If sloth is your favorite cruising sin, you will relish the chance to lie by the pool all day waiting for the waiters to come around with those fun and flirty drinks, enjoy a full body massage plus a mani and pedi, or just lounge on your balcony all day with room service stopping by for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And if you tire of being a sloth, plenty of onboard activities and adventure await you.

Gltuttony
Cruising is your chance to indulge in some of the world's best cuisine, from the chocolate buffet and extensive wine menu to the steakhouse's perfectly cooked New Y…

Advertising Is Art: Jean-Paul Goude

In the world of advertising there have been some geniuses who have been able to turn the promotion business into one of the great art forms of the twentieth century. Hereby I am forever grateful for the sheer brilliance of mastermind Jean-Paul Goude.

Goude was born in 1940 in Paris and has since then shared his creative power on various levels including graphic design, photography and advertising. He has created campaigns and illustrations for brands such as Perrier, Citro�n and Kodak, which are known all over the world. Many of his campaigns included his former muse, the model and performer Grace Jones.

Out of the wide range of superb advertisements, it was rather difficult to make a selection, but eventually I opted for one of his first television advertisements, a TV spot for Lee Cooper Jeans, made in 1983. The following is an attempt to describe the first part of the advert, which is not that easy as it is rather hectic.

At first, the TV spot shows a black girl waving at the audience…

I Am Craving for Knowledge

I am nothing but disabled without awareness of surroundings
It's amazing to know everything
On the other hand, lack of knowledge is crippling
I do not crave for any template for success
But I crave when somebody who is thirsty does not get adequate food to quench his stomach
But I crave when people are raging a revolution only with the ill intention to hurt others
But I crave when a certain culture mirrors its notions and ideas on gathering reposition
Yes, I crave when anger is uncontrollable even if that means controlling it just for a couple of minutes
Yes, I crave when somebody discourages a needed conflict simply based on own vested interests
I crave when a doted mother is crying for the welfare of her child
I crave when a brave soldier unfortunately has to die in army tank
I crave when I see a person with no such values or proper sense of discipline questions about principles of others
I crave when I see a teacher propagating about wrong unethical religious principles to an innocent chil…

3 Most Time Consuming Mistakes In Reporting To Funders

For 20+ years I have been helping Nonprofits and government agencies do reporting to funders (donors, foundations, government grant providers) and partners. I have seen a lot of processes and lack of processes for doing reporting. I am usually hired to help with a report because an organization doesn't have the staff and/or time, is at the end of their frustration rope or realizes report development is not their strong suit. But even if an organization hires me, they still have to supply information. Following are the 3 mistakes that, from my experience, cause the most frustration and waste of time.



Not tracking as you go. Waiting until the last minute to compile numbers puts you at risk for errors and omissions. Because this usually means you have to recreate and guestimate, it is likely you will over or underestimate your statistics. Overestimating could cause you to be non-compliant in your grant or to ruin your reputation with a funder - either could cause loss of funds. Undere…

But even the business owners of many small and medium-sized companies should understand the number of benefits that interns may provide.

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…
