In the Austin
American Statesman, Austin Texas paper of October 8, 1998, appeared the
HOMING PIGEONS LOSE THEIR BEARINGS, DISAPPEAR (The Washington Post)
as the name suggests, are supposed to find their way home. But more than
2,000 of the creatures have disappeared this week and no one can explain
lost their way during two separate homing pigeon races held Monday. Out
of 1,800 birds competing in a 200-mile race from New Market, VA to Allentown,
PA, about 1,500 have vanished. And in a 159-mile race from western Pennsylvania
to suburban Philadelphia, 700 out of 900 pigeons are missing. Most of
the pigeons would have been back in their lofts within a few hours. Although
it's not unusual to lose a few birds during a race -- a hungry hawk, for
example, might snag a few racers -- this week's loss is extraordinary,
organizers of the two events say. "There is something in the air,"
said Gary Moore, who was the "liberator" for the 150-mile race,
deciding when and where the birds were released. "To lose this many
is just unbelievable."
Was it sun
spots? A UFO? The currents of El Nino?
to come up with an answer pigeon enthusiasts say, because no one knows
how homing pigeons do what they do.
here, because lots of research on pigeon homing capabilities has been
done. It has been determined that pigeons use about 3 methods 1) visual
cues during the day; 2) geoelectromagnetic hints, & 3) star patterns
at night. Blinded pigeons -- or pigeons in a fog -- still get home and
"windmill" slowly in to a landing. Blinded pigeons with tiny
permanent magnets attached to their heads produced totally confused birds!......jb<<
theory is that the disappearance may have something to do with CELLULAR
PHONE ACTIVITY (my emphasis...jb). It's widely accepted that the pigeons
use electromagnetic fields to help the navigate and cellular phone calls
might interfere with that process, he speculated.
races are held on weekends when cellular phone activity is lower. But
the two races in question were postponed from Sunday to Monday because
also can send the pigeons off course, but the sun activity that day was
low, organizers say.
who lost 34 of the 37 birds he entered in the race to Allentown, also
thinks that something very peculiar must have messed up the birds' innate
tracking systems. He says the birds took a wrong turn and could be in
North Carolina by now. The three racers of his that finally made it home
arrived Tuesday afternoon. They were exhausted, and it was obvious they
had been flying lost for hours, said Effting, who lives in Emmaus, PA.
is that with each passing day, the chances that the birds will survive
are decreasing. Unlike their wild pigeon brethren, these speed machines
don't know how to feed themselves in the wild and are easy prey.
Note: An interesting supporting article appeared in the proceedings of
a symposium and workshop held in Snowmass-at-Aspen CO, in 1973  and
sponsored by the National Science Foundation in concert with the Neuroelectric
Society, the International Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering,
Marquette University and The Medical College of Wisconsin:
an important chapter in the Proceedings about the action of large flocks
of blackbirds and starlings, where hundreds of birds all turn, in milliseconds,
and NONE OF THEM COLLIDE . The video shown at the conference illustrated
the rapid twisting and turning as the flock few in close formation. VERY
impressive...as though all were of one mind! There was no twisting or
wave motion indicative of visual or auditory cues! It was theorized that
the birds used some sort of proximity detection sensory system based on
microwave phenomena, since the structure of bird feathers was somehow
related to microwave antennae! (also see )
synchronous turning and wheeling of flocks of several bird species, particularly
starlings (Sternus vulgaris), has long been a phenomena of curiosity and
series of reports suggesting that birds may be able to detect the earthâ?Ts
magnetic field makes the hypothesis that turning movements in bird flocks
may be coordinated by electromagnetic means more attractive. Such a signal
would be instantaneous, could reach all birds in the flock regardless
of their position relative to the signal source, and could carry sufficient
information for turning movements.
of films of turning flocks of birds and experimental studies of startle
reaction times in birds in our laboratories have suggested that the electromagnetic
radiation model could provide a parsimonious explanation for the observed
behavior of the birds.
several other presentations in the above book, relative to microwave sensitivity
of living systems to extremely low intensity fields, and I remember one
chapter in particular in this area by Dr. C. Romero-Sierra and J. Bigu
del Blanco, Dept of Anatomy, of Queen's College in Kingston, Ontario .
book, while expensive is worth having as an excellent early reference
to bioeffects of electric field gradients, magnetic fields, microwave,
and air ion effects.
I have noted
an interesting phenomenon about 8 miles south-southeast of here (Wimberley,
Texas). This tower, each morning and afternoon all summer, has been a
prime roosting spot on every cross-member for dozens of vultures (turkey
buzzards)!! They may be getting an EMF radiation buzz and/or may be waiting
for something to die! Seems quite symbolic, in several ways, of this whole
microwave communication and cellphone long-term bioeffects situation.
(Please keep in mind that it has long been known that selected EMF pulse
rates, waveforms and frequencies have healing, sedation and emotion-evoking
capabilities). I have noted many communication towers in my travels and
have seldom seen birds on any of them. This is the first tower I have
noted with so many birds and all of the same species. This might also
be a good example of how one can make snap decisions, based on insufficient
data and reach erroneous conclusions. Since I have not familiar with buzzard
habits, it may be that the tower is just a convenient elevated roost,
on a hill near a highway, where good road-kill scavenging is available.
Canada help wondering though....
to above, from: Bert Dumpe,
11 Nov 1998:
Jim: I reported
on the birds. The story you report verbatim as it appeared in the Washington
Post seems to have been edited. The initial WP report put the number of
the original population of birds starting the race at 3000. In addition,
from their release point in Virginia, the birds were traveling to various
destinations; a town in New Jersey, Brooklyn, NY, Allentown and Pittsburgh,
PA. Most of the birds were lost enroute, and a HANDFUL alighted on property
along the way or deviation thereto. Rest of the birds were not found,
which remains the case to date.
the FIRST report of an incident is the most factual. Thereafter, the cover-up
starts and the story is watered down and factual omissions prevail. This
seems to be the case in the Texas version of the story. For instance,
when the story broke, the bird racers positively stated that (paraphrased)
"the electromagnetic RF emissions from cellphone devices and antennas
changed the aerosol, which would affect the birds' sense of direction."
This positive statement is from people who study bird biology and have
sufficient knowledge to know "what environmental pollutants or objects
would interfere with the birds' mission and hinder the chances of a successful
statement of the "vultures." Interesting, and unusual. Can you
send me copies of any pictures you take? This is unusual because generally
birds (warm red-blooded) have been avoiding microwave towers, and often
when they do alight on the towers large numbers of birds are found on
the ground dead. Creatures normally found on towers, up to the height
of the antennas, are roaches (cold-blooded). Your hypothesis is probably
correct; "the vultures sense death in the air." Sometime ago
in one of my newsletters, I reported that birds migrating to Capistrano
and points south for the winter disappeared over New Mexico. It is altogether
possible that as well as disappearing, the birds are merely falling from
the sky as has been reported in various places. In addition, any birds
that would pass over the towers will be half dead and easy prey. This
is also a reported fact.
As for research
on the magnetite in the head of birds, which I mentioned when this lost
birds story was reported, this has already been done extensively. In fact,
Kaune the researcher who co-authored the Linet NCI powerline study, was
one of those who researched this. And you know what this turncoat said
about powerline emissions being benign. Researchers at Johns Hopkins and
elsewhere already researched biomagnitite in the brain of animals and
humans. With the loss of birds, death and deformity of reptiles (e.g.,
frogs, lizards) one had to be pretty thickheaded, a real bozo, or terribly
dishonest not to know that electrification of the air is deadly. The worst
is yet to come.
Bat-rays and Butterflies:
Philips, 21 Nov 1998
transistor radios can pick up and separate out hundreds of radio signals
at levels of a few hundreds of microvolts/metre. More sophisticated communications
receivers can work down to levels of about 10 microvolts/metre. Radio-astronomers
work on informational signals from stars at less than 1 microvolt/metre
- this is a power level of about 0.000 000 000 001 microwatt/cm2 (1 attowatt/cm2
!!). We can now detect and create pictures from signals from spacecraft
at our outer planets using transmit powers similar to those use by mobile
phones of a few watts!
have been shown to be sensitive to magnetic flux differences of 1 nanotesla
(10 microGauss) [Theoretically humans could also be sensitive down
to less than this level (pineal thermal noise c. 0.24 nanotesla - Smith,
1985). Various sea creatures can detect voltage gradients of a few 10's
stochastic resonance from regular pulsing EMFs can effectively amplify
coherent signals (like power EMFs) by vast amounts.
nonsense to suggest that living systems need to be "cooked"
before they realize they are being bombarded by signals and that microwaves
of 100 volts/metre are harmless to us.
butterfly question...many years ago (c.1969) I went to a Friday evening
London 'Royal Institution' lecture by Professor Eric Laithwhaite of Imperial
College London - the guy who developed the principle of the linear electric
motor which is now widely used - whose hobby was/is butterflies and moths.
At the time everyone was talking about pheromones, and undoubtedly these
are used in the mating attraction process, however...he discovered that
if the female (I think) was enclosed in a sealed plastic box the mates
still appeared from long distances away, but if she was enclosed in a
(electromagnetically screened) Faraday cage full of air holes only butterflies
who were very close were still attracted. He repeated these experiments
on many occasions and came to the conclusion that the patterns on the
butterflies wings were actually tuned circuits in the very high microwave
region (far-far-infra red) and each variety had its own unique RF/microwave
signature enabling mates of the same variety to home in using their antennae
and own wing resonators as tuning selectors. The main energy probably
came from the sunlight possibly modulated by wing flapping.
crude, gross, simplification of life into simple electro-chemical building
blocks completely misses the mysteries of what "life" is and
how sensitive it can be if we open ourselves up to the amazing, wonderful,
cosmic universe in which we live. I do not know how we will achieve the
paradigm shift in thinking needed but I sense that it is slowly starting
to happen. I hope so, anyway. Matthew Fox (USA) and his Creation Spirituality
movement is part of the change, along with the deep ecology movement.
I am meant to be a down-to-earth nuts-and-bolts engineer!
in there folks!

allergy 'incurable (?!!)
who is allergic to electricity has been told that her condition cannot
be cured. Doctors have told 78-year-old Christine Moody that they can
do nothing to stop the pain she experiences when she comes into contact
light of Ms. Moody's EHS problems, the following recent email may be helpful
who may be able to treat electro-hypersensitivity (EHS)
the description of your symptoms in your email below, you likely have
both chemical and electrical sensitivity. Many fair-skinned persons (primarily
women) have problems with long-term computer use. The monitor radiation,
both UV and electrical, causes a reddening of the skin, like the condition
"Rosacea". This is a condition researched a great deal in Sweden
by Dr. Olle Johansson, whom you have already contacted.
with electrical hypersensitivity (EHS) often have some extent of light-sensitivity,
similar to the condition called porpheria, which you described in your
symptoms go from Fibromyalgia, to Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, to
EHS....all of which are body system stressors (usually pain), as well
as making one even more sensitive to other types of stress....some of
symptoms may be sleep problems, weight gain, low body temp and pulse rate,
chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and a host of other body and immune system
abnormalities/paradoxes which drive the doctor's crazy!...seems a strong
tie-in to hypothyroidism, which does not show up on any normal medical
tests, because the problem is not indicated in the blood...it seems to
be a metabolism problem at cell level....possibly due to cell receptor
inactivation caused by heavy metals and toxic chemicals (pesticide exposure
at early age often a problem....did you ever chase the DDT mosquito spraying
trucks or bathe animals in DDT as a child??)....lots of women coming down
with similar problems at your age....because of the widespread use of
the "miracle" DDT pesticide (and other long-term toxic pesticides
and chemical cleaners) 30 to 40 years ago!
to be some paradoxes here, e.g., skin reddening looks like rosacea, but
is not the usual rosacea; light-sensitivity symptoms, like porpheria,
but no tests tie in to porpheria; hypothyrodism symptoms, but no tests
show up any thyroid problems;...lupus symptoms, but no lupus. This still
seems to me, as a lay-person with extensive information in this area,
that there is a cell receptor metabolic situation here where none of the
usual medical blood tests will show any problems. Therefore, with the
bunch of symptoms you have, the medical opinion often is "you much
be a hypochondriac and should see a psychiatrist to get rid of your mentally-induced
stress problems!!!" (especially if you are a woman!)
in the 1960's, Dreyfus (a millionaire financier in New York) , with sleep/fatigue
problems, overactive mental activity and a metallic taste in his mouth,
found he had "epileptoid brain-wave excursions". He spent over
5 million dollars exploring uses of the drug dilantin (diphynlhadantoin--DPH),
which helped him get back to normal with more energy than usual. The medical
research he funded showed that DPH had far more uses than just supression
of epileptic seizures....from heart arhythmias to skin conditions like
schleroderma. You say you suffer from seizures and are taking Tegretol
already. Have you tried DPH?...maybe a possibility here.
based on your location in NYC, that you are in an area of strong EMF activity....you
might have to leave the city for a few weeks or months, perhaps take a
vacation and go into the country for awhile...away from all EMF sources,
and see if your health improves.
to improve sleep, it would probably be helpful to get all electrical devices
out of your bedroom... further information and research references on
this and above statements can be found at my website www.emfinterface.com

From a message
to Roy Beavers (excerpt) forwarded by James Beal
Doctors in U.S. who treat electro-sensitivity
Date: Thu, 19 Dec 2002 00:06:17 EST
suggested I contact you regarding my medical condition. Below is my original
message to Dr. Johansson.
appreciate any information you have on doctors in the USA who can help
me. I live in New York City, but will consider doctors outside my area.
Thank you so much.
I am a 48
year old female who has become intolerant to all light. One year ago I
had normal healthy skin. In September 2001, I suffered a severe abnormal
skin reaction after using an ordinary moisturizer on my face. After exposure
to late day sunlight, my face turned very red, and was burning badly,
as though acid were poured on my face and the skin was scaling off and
became hyperpigmented. Following a diagnosis of contact dermatitis and
cortisone treatment under medical supervision, my condition worsened.
My initial symptoms included constant facial burning, intolerance to sunlight,
fluorescent light, computer monitors, a constant metallic taste and intolerance
to chemicals and perfumes.
I am unable
to go outdoors in sunlight and must wear a sunblock every day even indoors.
Over the past year my condition worsened despite numerous medical treatments.
Now, my mucous membranes and eyes are also affected, my nasal passages
burn, and are dried out and I have migraine headaches and muscle problems.
I used to work on computers and now I can't go near computers or TV sets.
I suffer from a seizure disorder and take the medication Tegretol (500
mg daily) and take Naproxen once a month for menstrual pain. I also have
severe scoliosis and have a Harrington rod implanted in my spine which
has been broken since 1980. Currently, a dermatologist is treating me
for rosacea using Metrocream. All medical tests for lupus, porphyria and
scleroderma have come back negative.
problems be due to electro-magnetic sensitivity and would you know of
a doctor in the US who can help me? I am desperate and willing to travel
to Sweden but fear a trip would be impossible due to my failing health.
so much for your assistance.
