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…

A Fairy Tale With A Business Cash Flow Management Lesson

By Sandra Simmons Remember Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale "The Princess And The Pea" from your childhood? I think my Mom read it to me a hundred times.The story goes...A prince was searching the land far and wide for his future wife. He didn't want a FAKE princess who only wanted his castle and his fortune. He wanted a REAL princess to share his life and have a positive impact on the future of the realm.The prince figured out that he needed to test each candidate to see if he had found the real princess that could help him achieve his dreams.He came up with a test, and for weeks on end he invited the candidates, one by one, to spend the weekend at his castle.In the guest bedroom where the candidate would sleep, he piled something like a hundred mattresses on the bed. He placed one dried pea under the bottom mattress. He knew that only a real princess would be able to feel that pea under all those mattresses and that, being a princess, she would complain about …

Transport My Shipment Cheap? Sure! But What Do I Consider First?

By Adolf Onwuka Nanyell A few months ago, I ran into an old friend of mine, Serge Meyer, right in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Serge Meyer used to be the Marketing Director of Guinness PLC. He now runs an industrial blade manufacturing plant in Montreal, Canada which supplies its products to most of the top family run lumber jack companies in Central Canada. His factory procures some of the components it uses to produce the more sophisticated blades meant for more precise cuttings. These components weight between 4 pounds and 28 pounds. According to Meyer, his annual purchase is about 7,000 units of these components.Meyer's major supplier of these blade components is Bell Metals Canada Inc., located in Vancouver. Bell Metals is known for its reputation for top quality products and has been a trustworthy partner of Meyer's company since its inception.The Procurement Manger of Meyer's company believes that their next 12-month purchase from Bell Metals will be…

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…

Depending on the depth of one's pocket and the purpose of acquiring a certain container, one can specify what material they want their boxes to be made of. However, it would be wise to do a quick research before getting on the phone (or laptop) to order a custom container.

Optimal Contact Center Technology Improves Customer Satisfaction

Customer loyalty is the make-or-break for most businesses. If customers do not keep coming back to you, and are not advocates of your organization, then churn will become increasingly damaging.

How an optimal contact center can increase customer retention? Customer service is the largest single influence on consumer loyalty. Research has shown that 46 per cent of people feel that service is their number one driver for loyalty, compared to only 33 per cent who felt that product quality was key. So if you can achieve both excellent service and product quality, then your business will have high loyalty, and help drive profits up!

Customer Frustration
The research identified that there are three main areas of customer frustration in the contact center: Hold Times, Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRs) and Call Transfers.

Businesses need to be aware that these areas can cause a great deal of dissatisfaction amongst customers, and ensure they work to avoid it.

Roses Are Red, But Are Violets Really Blue?

Well, maybe not. In today's Tech world, what seems to be may not be.

Phishing, credit card fraud, email scams, all have become very sophisticated for sure.

An example, I just listed my Note 5 on Amazon seller account, within minutes I had a buyer-until I read the response:

Does this sound like something Amazon would write?

Quote: "we hereby inform you that order have been completed for your item and payment have been received from buyer by us on your behalf. An additional 50 for shipping has been added. You can now go ahead and ship item and get back to us with shipping tracking number for shipment verification in other to transfer your payment into your account".

Obviously, these morons were not very good at it. But many are.

A scammer contacts you out of the blue pretending to be from a legitimate business such a bank, telephone or internet service provider. You may be contacted by email, social media, phone call, or text message.

The scammer asks you to provide or confirm yo…

Different Types of Sturdy Foundation Bolts

The foundation bolts are made by casting from wrought iron rods or mild steel and are used to fasten the machines to the foundations. The size of the bolt to be used depends upon the bulk of the machinery and the immensity of the power of the machinery while it is in use. The f bolt manufacturers make them strong enough as these provide the resistance and the required support to the structure. It also helps in providing a foundation that is strong enough for the entire structure.

For setting the foundation bolts in correct places, positions are marked. After this, the they are suspended into the holes. Concrete is then filled into the space around the bolts and once the concrete sets, the bolts get secured firmly into the ground. There are several types of bolts made by the foundation bolt manufacturers that are used for various purposes. Let us have a look at them.

Bent foundation bolt

These are cast in bent form and then set in the concrete. At times, the machines require to be positi…

The Dramatic Downside of Home Decor Ideas in Movies

Movie sets make all kinds of fantastic home d�cor ideas seem possible, but many of these ideas would have major downsides in real life.

Willy Wonka's Chocolate FactoryThe chocolate factory is a big inspiration to kids everywhere. The pre-teen audience salivates at the sight of the chocolate river, teacup flowers, and trees with balloon-like candy fruit. Who wouldn't want a gigantic room where everything is edible? A reasonable adult with foresight-that's who wouldn't want the biohazard of such a playspace. First, there's the impossible task of fending off insects and replacing expired candy trees. Secondly, inviting any guests to enjoy would be as biologically risky as sharing a lollipop with a group of friends. The only adult who would be interested in a room or house of candy is the witch in Hansel and Gretel.

Texas Chainsaw MassacreThe murderous family in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie isn't portrayed in a very favourable light. "Stand your gr…

Bad Service Can Ruin Your Restaurant's Reputation

During the holidays I enjoyed the time off with some surf, sea and sand. As like most people on holiday, I love spending time with special people at wonderful restaurants. Most of the restaurants I went to knew what they were doing and their waitrons were on the ball. I commend such good customer service. However, there was this one restaurant that I went to that did not offer such a good customer experience. Bad service can give a restaurant a bad name.

Let me share my experience with you.
My companions and I decided to have breakfast at the beach. This particular restaurant is ideally situated on the beach, just a few metres from the sea so you can imagine the beautiful view we were looking forward to. While waiting in the queue to be seated, we were promptly informed that we needed to wait a bit. Once we were seated it took quite some time for our waitron to welcome us and provide us with the menus. When she did show up she advised that the restaurant is very busy and breakfast will …
