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…

News :Who Should Elected Officials REPRESENT?

By Richard Brody For a variety of reasons, we often elect politicians, who, either because of their personalities, rhetoric or promises, etc, are appealing, rather than by identifying, and considering, whether they have a viable solution (or solutions), and a willingness, to listen effectively, and do, what's best, for the common good! Who should our elected officials REPRESENT? It often appears, although most of these, claim they are serving their constituents, a large proportion, of them, proceed, with a focus and emphasis, on their own, personal agenda, and/ or, self - interest. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly examine, review, consider, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why we deserve this type of quality representation.1. Relevant; realistic: Rather than merely, emphasizing unrealistic promises, and rhetoric, a true leader, must proceed, focused on relevant solutions, and a realistic perspective. Why does thi…

SelfImprovement :One Gland to Rule Them All

By William T Batten Imagine someone offered you a pill. This pill, they say, is a new miracle drug. If you're a man, it boosts testosterone (in a safe and healthy way). If you're a woman, it boosts fertility and milk production. For everyone, it improves blood pressure, and it's sophisticated enough to lower it when it's too high and raise it when it's too low. It also helps you lose weight and keep it off, reduces bloating and improves your overall appearance.Oh, and it blocks pain. Don't worry, it's not addictive.Well, I hope you would scoff at them. No pill could do all of this - especially since half of it contradicts the other half. They're selling snake oil.But let's say that they proved it. They have scientific studies, client testimonials, celebrity endorsements and medical experts verifying that, yes, this pill does work. It sounds impossible but this miracle is real.And somehow it's affordable too. A day's dosage costs about what …

Business :New Flash: Rome Wasn't Built In Two Days Either

By Bobby Darnell I firmly believe we live in a world that leans towards, and leads us to, instant gratification.Fresh hot coffee, by the cup, brewed instantly. Do you want your friends to see what you are having for lunch? You can upload a picture instantly. Do you want the latest music from your favorite artist? Simply, download it instantly.When it comes to building new business, 'instant' can help but cannot replace that which it cannot replace.Developing a brand takes time.Building trusted relationships takes time.Developing a portfolio of solid projects takes time.I am a big believer in not reinventing the wheel. I prefer to look around, see what others are doing, and doing well, and try to follow. Who has not heard of The Wall Street Journal? Yet, I see their ads everywhere. Why would a brand like the Mayo Clinic feel the need to be on Twitter? Yet they are and they are crushing it. Why would contractors with billions in revenue use a lead service? Yet many do.Buying a …

Relationships :Keep It Simple and Communicate

By Dan Langerock Albert Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."Here is a story I read about Albert Einstein:Einstein attended a lecture by a professor, along with a lot of other people. The professor made the subject so complex, Einstein believed the audience needed to be enlightened by presenting it more simply. So he went onto the platform and explained in simple terms what the professor had tried to convey.We block the understanding of others with the use of the wrong words. Why does this happen?:Pride is the first reason.Whether writing or speaking, we exhibit the wrong kind of pride when big words are used, the audience may not understand. Consequently, they may be trying to figure out what was just said, while we have perhaps gone on to the next point. A good communicator analyzes their potential audience and crafts what is being said accordingly.Someone I knew did this when he spoke in presentations, and wouldn…

By Navjot Sidhu Paper pollution refers to environmental pollution caused by the production, use, and recycling of paper. Paper pollution causes severe adverse effects on the quality of air, water, and land. Discarded paper is a major component of many landfill sites. Paper recycling is also a source of pollution due to the sludge produced during drinking.The amount of paper and paper products used is so enormous that the environmental impact of the pollution caused by it is also very significant. Therefore, great efforts are required to ensure that the environment is protected during the production, use and recycling/disposal of this enormous volume of material.Pulp and paper is the third largest industrial polluter to air, water, and land in the United States, and studies show that it releases well over 100 million kg of toxic pollution each year.The main components of pulp mill related pollution are chlorine and chlorine-based materials, sulfur, hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide.…

SEM :Some Important and Useful Facts About PageRank

By Vineet Kumar SinghPageRank (PR) is a mathematical algorithm that Google uses to rank pages of the websites in its search results.As per the Google, Pagerank determines the importance of a website by counting the number and quality of links to the pages of the site. The basic assumption is that more important sites tend to receive more backlinks from other websites.The rank value determines the importance of a particular page.Research (from AOL's search engine logs) shows that more than 90% of the buying decisions start with a search online. And the first ten search results receive the majority (89%) of the entire click-through traffic. And the next ten results which are usually displayed on the second page receive less than 5% of the click-through traffic.Therefore ranking on the first page is so important that companies can rise or fall due to their Google search results when customers are looking online for the products and services that they sell.Few facts about PageRank ar…

SEM :Interpreting Modern SERPs to Understand Better for Ranking No.1

By Vineet Kumar SinghInitially, the search engines could not understand the intent of the user. The words on the query string were connected with the words in the result pages and results were displayed for the user. There was no understanding of the intent of the user behind those words.Today, the aim of the search engines is to offer the best possible search experience for its users. And Search engine like Google has always been looking out for ways to understand the intent of the search in a better way. This includes differentiating the SERPs on the expected intent of the users. Over time, there has been a lot of focus on understanding the intent of the users and why different users with different intentions use the similar words in their queries.Also, Google not only aims to provide the better search results but also give the results quickly. That means connecting the user with the content that satisfies their needs in the shortest time. This has an impact on the construction of …

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.

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.

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.

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 …
