Google Deploys Wi-Fi Balloons in Africa and Asia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 2, 2013

My Note: Whether going online, using a PC, smartphone, tablet or digital TV, we users can no longer assume we have a healthy life style. In fact, we should assume we have absolutely no guarantee to remain fit and healthy. Technology is good when it’s wisely used, and the focus is to improve the quality of life of the people. But, does rural Africa really need Computer and Wireless technologies? Are they their priorities? Some years ago a ‘One Laptop Per Child’ Initiative was launched in Africa by Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor, Nicholas ‘Negroponte’. This initiative was criticized by some experts who argued that providing deworming for school age children, or school lunches, or helping with teacher salaries, were more efficient than donating a computer to help improve education. A year ago, it was heralded that rural Ethiopian kids hacked Google’s android software (Motorola). Now, Google wants to deploy Wi-Fi ballons. What’s Google up to? Google daughter, Motorola has just unveiled a ‘tattoo’ microcircuit to identify individuals. The company is working on a hi-tech tattoo (a kind of biological stamp) that could replace ALL our passwords: Motorola reveals plans for ink and even pills to identify us all. “Mark of the Beast?” This is another disturbing aspect. Additional reason to be concerned? Africans, in particular, should demonstrate their skepticism about this sort of plan — as history teaches them to question the intentions and motives of globally-operating technological companies that use their continent for all sorts of evil experimentation.

Adolf Hitler once said, “The greatest and most ruthless decisions will have to be made. A barbaric measure for the unfortunate who is struck by it, but a blessing for his fellow man and posterity, the passing pain of a century can and will clearly redeem millenniums from sufferings.” Though talking about the Jewish Holocaust, Hitler could well have been speaking of the African AIDS Holocaust. With the introduction of HIV, this current biological warfare against Africans is the latest on a long list of genocidal programs designed to kill off the original seed. Could this be one of their updated “smart” moves to target Africans with electromagnetic radiation? To control the populations?

GoogleWorld2Google Inc. is deep into a multipronged effort to build and help run wireless networks in emerging markets as part of a plan to connect a billion or more new people to the Internet.

These wireless networks would serve areas such as sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia to dwellers outside of major cities where wired Internet connections aren’t available, said people familiar with the strategy.

The networks also could be used to improve Internet speeds in urban centers, these people said.

Google plans to team up with local telecommunications firms and equipment providers in the emerging markets to develop the networks, as well as create business models to support them, these people said. It is unclear whether Google already has lined up such deals or alliances.

A Google spokeswoman declined to comment.

Wi-Fi Health Dangers & Radiation Health Effects

Wireless Internet routers or Wi-Fi modems use dangerous electromagnetic radiation to send their signals to your computer through walls. If you have a wireless Internet router set up in your home or office (or WiMax, Blue Tooth, Air-Port Extreme, Air-Port Express, Netgear, D-Link, Belkin, Linksys and other wireless network devices) you are receiving massive EMF exposure, and living or working in a dangerous soup of radiation.

These antenna radiation patterns have been shown to lead to numerous health problems

Looming Health Crisis: Wireless Technology and the Toxification of Humanity

mobile-radiation2As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. A major health crisis looms that is only hastened through the extensive deployment of “smart grid” technology.

A growing body of medical studies is now linking cumulative RF exposure to DNA disruption, cancer, birth defects, miscarriages, and autoimmune diseases. Smart meters significantly contribute to an environment already polluted by RF radiation through the pervasive stationing of cellular telephone towers in or around public spaces and consumers’ habitual use of wireless technologies. In the 2000 Salzburg Resolution European scientists recommended the maximum RF exposure for humans to be no more than one tenth of a microwatt per square centimeter. In the United States RF exposure limits are 1,000 microwatts per centimeter, with no limits for long term exposure.[4] Such lax standards have been determined by outdated science and the legal and regulatory maneuvering of the powerful telecommunications and wireless industries

In the following informative video. Dr. Barrie Trower, a British physicist who was a microwave weapons expert and who worked for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service, explains about the health effects of WiFi and other forms of microwave radiation.

Mr. Trower came out of retirement because he was concerned that the microwave frequencies and intensities to which children are exposed in schools are similar to those used for microwave weapons.

 

Physics Proves Existence of Centralized Global Control Network

Forget the word conspiracy when it comes to explaining how globalization or centralized control turns the world into an extremely unstable environment where centralized management is possible, and where a sneeze from one of the controllers will end up shaking half of the world. Furthermore, forget about the “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” labels to insult people who believe in something that physics has proven to exist.

Call it the New World Order, the Old World Order, the cabal of mad Anglo-Saxon men who want to control it all, or simply call it the product of self-organization. What matters is that the existence of a global network of corporate control has been proven beyond all doubt. A study titled The Network of Global Corporate Control, was the first complete analysis of complex economic networks that looked at economics as one would look at a swarm of birds, insects or brain connections to understand how a small group of people indeed control what happens in the world.

Novartis Flu vaccines banned by some European countries

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 26, 2012

I was recently told by a wise Ethiopian monk that he had a warning dream 20 years ago to tell folks that they should avoid taking vaccines completely

Health regulators in Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Spain imposed an immediate ban on Novartis AG’s flu vaccines Thursday after possibly contaminated flu shots were found in batches in Italy,

Globalism Is Killing Us All

In the past, diseases like tuberculosis and malaria have been number one health concerns around the world.

But not anymore.

In today’s world, globalization is the number one health risk facing humanity.

A new study released this week by the Blacksmith Institute reveals, for the first time ever, the impact of industrial pollutants on communities across the planet. It found that industrial waste dump sites containing toxic horrors like lead, mercury, and chromium, poison more than 125 million people in 49 different low and middle income nations around the planet. And the authors of the study say this is a very conservative estimate and likely even more people are sickened by this rampant industrial pollution. In fact, the report says that industrial pollution is now a bigger global health problem for the world than malaria and tuberculosis.

Just look at what’s happening in places like Zamfara, Nigeria. It’s a state without children – or, at least, very few children walking around.

Why? Because hundreds of children who work in gold mines are exposed to high levels of lead.  Back in March of 2010, the organization Doctors Without Borders arrived on the scene in Zamfara and found that hundreds of children had died from lead poisoning and thousands more were diseased by it.  Mortality rates in some villages were as high as 43%.

This is a genocide carried out by transnational corporations that have no restraints on how they operate in what were once sovereign nations. And ultimately, this is a consequence of globalism.

Plain and simple, globalization is the empowering of transnational corporations and the neutering of sovereign governments to keep their populations safe from these transnational corporate behemoths.

The Water Footprint of Humanity

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 15, 2012



A fascinating study from the University of Twente (Netherlands) , UNESCO-IHE 

by Arjen Hoekstra and Mesfin Mekonnen

Background

Since the Dublin Conference in 1992, there is consensus that the river basin is the appropriate unit for analyzing freshwater availability and use. An underlying hypothesis of the research programme at the University of Twente is that it is becoming increasingly important to put freshwater issues in a global context. Although other authors have already argued thus, we add a new dimension to the argument. Local water depletion and pollution are often closely tied to the structure of the global economy. With increasing trade between nations and continents, water is more frequently used to produce exported goods. International trade in commodities implies long-distance transfers of water in virtual form, where virtual water is understood as the volume of water that has been used to produce a commodity and that is thus virtually embedded in it. Knowledge about the virtual-water flows entering and leaving a country can cast a completely new light on the actual water scarcity of a country. For example, Jordan imports about 5 to 7 billion m3 of virtual water per year, which is in sharp contrast with the 1 billion m3 of water withdrawn annually from domestic water sources. This means that people in Jordan apparently survive owing to the import of water-intensive commodities from elsewhere, for example the USA.

A second hypothesis of the research programme is that it becomes increasingly relevant to consider the linkages between consumption of people and impacts on freshwater systems. This can improve our understanding of the processes that drive changes imposed on freshwater systems and help to develop policies of wise water governance. In 2002 Hoekstra introduced the water-footprint concept as an indicator that maps the impact of human consumption on global freshwater resources. The water footprint of an individual or community is defined as the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by the individual or community. A water footprint can be calculated for any well-defined group of consumers, including a family, business, village, city, province, state or nation. The water footprint of a nation for example shows water use related to consumption within a nation. Traditionally, national water use has been measured as the total freshwater withdrawal for the various sectors of the economy. By contrast, the water footprint shows not only freshwater use within the country considered, but also freshwater use outside the country’s borders. It refers to all forms of freshwater use that contribute to the production of goods and services consumed by the inhabitants of a certain country. The water footprint of the Dutch community, for example, also refers to the use of water for rice production in Thailand (insofar as the rice is exported to the Netherlands for consumption there). Conversely, the water footprint of a nation excludes water that is used within the national territory for producing commodities for export, which are consumed elsewhere.

Objective of the programme

The objective of the research programme is to examine the critical links between water management and international trade and between consumption and freshwater impacts. Questions posed are: Can trade enhance global water use efficiency, or does it simply shift the environmental burden to a distant location? Does import of water in virtual form offer a solution to water-scarce nations or does this result is undesired ‘water dependency’? How can quantitative analysis of expected or desirable trends in international or inter-regional virtual water flows contribute to water policy development at different levels of spatial scale? How can water footprint accounting become part of the regular practice of governments and businesses and how can it feed into better water policy making? How can water security of communities can be guaranteed by a combination of policies to bring along changes at local, basin and global level? How will the growing demand for bio-energy increase the global water footprint of humanity? Questions like these and others are being addressed in various sub-projects, involving MSc and PhD students from various parts of the world.
