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…

It's NOT Their (Your Employees) Fault

By Blaine Millet I called into the call center at Sprint a few months back to get some information about purchasing the new iPhone X. After navigating through a myriad of selections I got to the right person (I think I pressed 2 - 2 - 4 - 6 and some other numbers to get there... not good). I explained what I was looking to do and wanted to know my options for upgrading to the new phone. There were no options... we have one way you can upgrade. Hmmm, not what I was looking for.After some discussion with the person, it was clear they had been given the script to deliver the one way of getting a new phone... no options. So I started to throw out some options for discussion. The first comment (and ongoing comment) is that I can only tell you about this one way to do an upgrade. So I suggested we get a supervisor involved and see if we can expand the choices and the discussion. After being on hold for a while, they came back and said they talked to their supervisor and there might be anot…

Got a Good Joke? Keep It to Yourself

By Larry Galler In a social gathering, many people often joke. They may kid one another while enjoying an evening together with friends, food, and beverage. We are relaxed among friends, just kidding around. But that's the social world. The business world is certainly not the same as a social gathering. In a business environment, we might gather over the proverbial water cooler and talk shop. Humor has a place in business, but you have to be careful not to offend.You have probably heard many jokes that started, "There was this Rabbi, a Priest, and a Minister having lunch together... " right? Some of these are funny, others are dull, and some are downright vulgar depending on your sensitivity or point of view... and these days some people are very sensitive, critical, and quick to explode and take offense.A joke in a comedy club or on late night television might cause the audience to become hysterical with laughter while the same joke at a conference table or break room …

Track Your Marketing For $80 a Year - Or Less

By Scott A Gardner Landing pages are great.  You can - and should - set one up for each different ad or content marketing effort you put out on the 'net.  Landing (or squeeze) pages are the Holy Grail when it comes to automatically adding contacts to your marketing & sales funnel.  But sometimes, the content just doesn't lend itself to a simple "give me your lead magnet" email exchange.  Sometimes, the prospect just has to call you.But how do you know which ad the prospect is responding to?Add One Number
Let's say you've put out two different ads - one that offers to remove a prospects pain with your solution, and one that promises to add pleasure with the same solution.  You ARE offering you target market prospects those two choices, aren't you?  Sure, you've got two landing pages, but what if you want a hot prospect to actually call you?For one ad, you can use your business phone number.  Many folks are using some flavor of Android phone, or ma…
