A link between power line magnetic fields and childhood leukemia was revealed in a 1979 health study. More studies in the U.S. and Europe supported these findings, including links to other diseases. But when careful measurements were made in schools, offices and residences it was found that most high magnetic fields in buildings were caused by certain common wiring errors, as well as by electric currents on water pipes due to grounding practices. Karl Riley pioneered a successful method of tracing high magnetic fields to the site of the error. A simple correction clears the field. Though his clients in 17 states may see him as an electrical Sherlock Holmes, he follows a simple, logical measurement sequence which leads him inevitably to the spot where the error was made. Correction is simple and obvious. His entire diagnostic method is spelled out in this book, for the use of electricians or technically inclined home owners.

"As [Disconnect] shows, cell phones may actually be doing damage to far more than our attention spans-and could, in fact, be killing us." -Salon.com. Since the invention of radar, cell phone radiation was assumed to be harmless because it wasn't like X-rays. But a sea change is now occurring in the way scientists think about it. The latest research ties this kind of radiation to lowered sperm counts, an increased risk of Alzheimer's, and even cancer. In Disconnect, National Book Award finalist Devra Davis tells the story of the dangers that the cell phone industry is knowingly exposing us-and our children-to in the pursuit of profit. More than five billion cell phones are currently in use, and that number increases every day. Synthesizing the findings and cautionary advice of leading experts in bioelectricalmagnetics and neuroscience, Davis explains simple safety measures that no one can afford to ignore.

Have you ever wondered about the safety or dangers of: Cell Phones Smartphone Addiction Cell Tower Radiation WiFi, Bluetooth High-Voltage Power Lines Smart Devices 5G Mobile Networks Baby Monitors Cordless Phone Bases Microwave Oven Radiation . . . Just to name a few of the topics in "EXPOSED: The Electronic Sickening of America and How to Protect Yourself." There's a hidden danger pulsating in the airways and buzzing behind the walls of millions of American homes, schools, and businesses. Our families, co-workers, even our pets, are exposed to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) almost continually, 24/7. Few people want to address this topic because they don't know what to do. They are frustrated and overwhelmed by the scattered and conflicting information that's out there. And they fear that they will have to give up their electronic necessities. I felt that way as well--until I learned that the great news is that you CAN take control of your exposure to harmful electromagnetic radiation and learn how to use your electronic devices more safely. First, some background: A disturbing correlation has been discovered between electro-pollution and a host of diseases and disorders. These include cancer, neurological diseases, respiratory diseases, behavioral disorders, chronic fatigue, ADHD, insomnia, depression, headaches, muscle/joint pain, chronic inflammation, and many more. The report "BioInitiative 2012," collates research from around the world on the bio-effects and health hazards of electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radition: from wires and wireless technologies. It represents more than 3,800 scientific, peer-reviewed studies done by PhDs and MDs on the potential health effects of prolonged exposure to electromagnetic radiation. And the research continues to grow. Electromagnetic radiation is the tobacco of the Digital Age. And, like tobacco, it can kill you. The widespread rollout of 5G will only exacerbate the problem. We don't really know how this is all going to turn out. We are all "guinea pigs" in a huge, highly lucrative, disorganized experiment. The telecommunications industry doesn't have to win the scientific argument about safety; it only has to keep the argument going. We need to research the research and follow the dollars. Most people don't have the time to do that. That's why I wrote this book. To put you at ease, I want to say that I am not anti-technology. I use it on a daily basis. I have a smartphone and computer, and use social media. This book is about how to use your electronic devices more safely. It is about how to guard yourself and the people you love against the unintended consequences of the digital age. This book has been written to be accessible to the person who has little or no technical background in electronics or physics. It has many practical solutions that can be accomplished by just about anyone in one minute, and often without cost. EXPOSED gives you the "back story" and provides information so you can discern the facts from fiction regarding the safety of wireless technology and dirty electricity. Most importantly, this book provides solutions. There are good, better, and best ways to use technology in order to minimize your exposure to harmful radiation. Read it. Do it. Share it.

In lively and engaging language, this book describes our dependence on freight transport and its vulnerability to diminishing supplies and high prices of oil. Ships, trucks, and trains are the backbone of civilization, hauling the goods that fulfill our every need and desire. Their powerful, highly-efficient diesel combustion engines are exquisitely fine-tuned to burn petroleum-based diesel fuel. These engines and the fuels that fire them have been among the most transformative yet disruptive technologies on the planet. Although this transportation revolution has allowed many of us to fill our homes with global goods even a past emperor would envy, our era of abundance, and the freight transport system in particular, is predicated on the affordability and high energy density of a single fuel, oil. This book explores alternatives to this finite resource including other liquid fuels, truck and locomotive batteries and utility-scale energy storage technology, and various forms of renewable electricity to support electrified transport. Transportation also must adapt to other challenges: Threats from climate change, financial busts, supply-chain failure, and transportation infrastructure decay. Robert Hirsch, who wrote the “Peaking of World Oil Production” report for the U.S. Department of Energy in 2005, said that planning for peak world production must start at least 10, if not 20 years ahead of time. What little planning exists focuses mainly on how to accommodate 30 percent more economic growth while averting climate change, ignoring the possibility that we are at, or near, the end of growth. Taken for granted, the modern transportation system will not endure forever. The time is now to take a realistic and critical look at the choices ahead, and how the future of transportation may unfold.

EMF Health Alert is a reader friendly, easy to follow, "how to" guide, on eliminating the harmful electro-magnetic fields (EMF) from wired and wireless devices in your home and workspace to create a healthier living environment. In today's age of digital technology, we are constantly connected through our wireless devices to a world we cannot see, hear, or touch. We rely on cellphones, computers, tablets, IPads and many other electronic devices to get us through our daily lives. However with this new technology comes something our bodies have never experienced before, information carrying radio waves (ICRW). These are artificial microwaves that allow information to be delivered from one source to another. The problem is that these man-made microwaves cause harm to our bodies at the cellular level, and as a result create many negative health symptoms like headaches, tinnitus- ringing in the ears, insomnia, lack of focus, irritability, rashes, anxiety, and heart palpitations. In this simple to follow guide, we make this information easy to understand; make the sources of radiation easy to find; and solutions easy to implement. This guide is intended for everyone, especially those who are interested in learning about the radio frequency (RF) radiation and dirty electricity that surrounds us today in our world of digital technologies.

When Old Technologies Were New

Thinking About Electric Communication in the Late Nineteenth Century

In the history of electronic communication, the last quarter of the nineteenth century holds a special place, for it was during this period that the telephone, phonograph, electric light, wireless, and cinema were all invented. In When old Technologies Were New, Carolyn Marvin explores how two of these new inventions--the telephone and the electric light--were publicly envisioned at the end of the nineteenth century, as seen in specialized engineering journals and popular media. Marvin pays particular attention to the telephone, describing how it disrupted established social relations, unsettling customary ways of dividing the private person and family from the more public setting of the community. On the lighter side, she describes how people spoke louder when calling long distance, and how they worried about catching contagious diseases over the phone. A particularly powerful chapter deals with telephonic precursors of radio broadcasting--the "Telephone Herald" in New York and the "Telefon Hirmondo" of Hungary--and the conflict between the technological development of broadcasting and the attempt to impose a homogenous, ethnocentric variant of Anglo-Saxon culture on the public. While focusing on the way professionals in the electronics field tried to control the new media, Marvin also illuminates the broader social impact, presenting a wide-ranging, informative, and entertaining account of the early years of electronic media.

Everyone knows mobile phones are safe. If they weren't, we'd already know about it, right? That is perhaps the greatest disconnect of our age. As research scientists are now demonstrating, mobile-phone radiation can damage the human body's cells - leading to memory loss, an increased risk of cancer, reduced sperm counts, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and possibly even autism. Mobile phones, it seems, are not as safe as we had supposed. In this riveting exposé, Dr Devra Davis, respected epidemiologist and founding director of the toxicology and environmental studies board at the United States National Academy of Sciences, clearly outlines the dangers posed by mobile-phone radiation - particularly to children, whose growing brains are especially vulnerable. Drawing on interviews with key players within the trillion-dollar mobile-phone industry and presenting a range of recent and long-suppressed research, Dr Davis makes a compelling case for changing the way we make and use mobile phones. For the close to five billion mobile-phone users worldwide, this truly is essential reading.
