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…

Viola, Cello and Violin Bows - Bow Bugs and Bad Hair Days

By Nathan WeissTiny, bow hair-eating bugs really exist and they can wreak costly harm to violin, viola and cello bows. Save yourself aggravation and money by following these preventive steps.Almost all decomposition is actually the work of small bugs and microorganisms. That includes the unfortunate destruction of the hairs of cello, viola and violin bows, the work of millimeter-size bugs known as dermestidae or "skin beetles."You'll know them by their "work" - the evidence of a bow hair bug infestation is when bow hairs on violins unaccountably break. This can happen to the hairs of viola and cello bows as well. It's not that these types of bugs (there are between 500 and 700 separate species worldwide) are music haters. They simply prefer to eat dry organic material, from plants and animals, which includes skin, animal hair, feathers, and natural fibers. That includes horsehair, the material used in most bows of string instruments (lower quality bows use…

Bow Rosin: How to Choose the Right Rosin for You

By Nathan Weiss The friction created by rosin is essential for playing all bowed stringed instruments such as violins. But the choices of types and brands are varied and vast.There are quite a few questions - and unresolved matters of opinion - on the technical matter of rosin use on violin, viola and cello bows. It's common for beginning, intermediate and advanced players to ask, "Which rosin is right for me?" Unfortunately, there is no single or simple correct answer.The reason for this is there are too many variables. A concertmaster from Helsinki might need entirely different rosin for performing in Havana - because of the effect of temperature and humidity on the substance. A violinist may be comfortable with one type of rosin early in their training then switch to a different rosin later because he or she discovers they get a different, richer sound as a result of the new rosin.For the most part, finding the rosin for your stringed instrument bow is a matter of tr…

The Power Brokers

By Dr. Tim G Williams In all of history there has always been a family name synonymous with great wealth. Just the name Rothschild conjurors up images of great mansions that dwarf the Vanderbilt's and the Rockefellers. With so many of us in the United States so impoverished while the fat cats on Wall Street keep getting even fatter we really would like to know who really are the Rothschilds? What is their genealogy? And, how did one family become histories most powerful of all money changers? These questions have now become more relevant with each bank and stock market transaction taking place today. Is it any wonder why the United States is so precariously close to self destruction when our money and monetary system is based on fractional banking today just as the Rothschilds have used for centuries?To answer the mystique surrounding the worlds most influential families is to take a journey back through the ages. The year was 1129 AD the Knights Templar were officially recognize…

Transport My Shipment Intermodally? Sure! But What's In It For Me?

By Adolf Onwuka Nanyell Intermodal transportation in cargo movement refers to the movement of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle, using several modes of transportation like rail, road, water, and air without necessarily handling the freight at the various mode interchanges. Intermodal transportation has many advantages which certainly include:

Reduced Transit TimesIntermodalism may not achieve transit times that are overly shorter than those of other modes, but it strives to make its transit times so short as to make them attractive when combined with low prices.The growth of intermodalism has helped in achieving reduced transit times on routes where a combination of air, road, water or rail is possible. This comes about as a result of the availability of mechanized and faster methods of handling shipments using trailers and containers at intermodal terminals/hubs. Also, the adequate analysis of the factors of a product to be transported and the schedules of the various tra…

Safety of Fertility Drugs

By Sunita Verma Safety of fertility drugs - Is it a cause of concern?For millions of women struggling to conceive, fertility drugs are the first stepin treatment. Clomiphene works by stimulating the hormones in brain that trigger an egg (or several) to develop and be released from ovaries. Gonadotropins stimulate ovaries directly to produce eggs.

In the seventies, I made my first visit to Bandhavgarh National Park in Central India. It was a small park barely visited by the tourists except by one or two photographers from overseas, and some drop ins who had heard about the destination from friends.Desolate and untended, the sparks of tourism were barely seen but nevertheless gauging the potential MPTDC had set up a property consisting of four rooms and a small bar cum dining. The place was aptly known as White Tiger Lodge, for the famous white tiger Mohun was discovered nearby by then Maharajah of Rewa.A lone rest house belonging to the forest department with office at Umaria the district head quarters was available for accommodation at preposterously cheaper rates.
