Sprint plans to invade a school in Berkeley, California
While neighbors of 1600 Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley, California,
fighting to keep base-stations antennas out of their neighborhood,
heard a discouraging news: Sprint PCS has managed to sign a
with St. Mary's High School to install antennas on the school
school is on Hopkins Avenue, just a few miles away from Shattuck.
This is one of many cases that shows Sprint has no concern for
health of young adults. I think, soon, neighbors will send the
SOS (Save Our School).

Results of a Measurement Programme Concerning Mobile Phone

This paper summarises the results of a measurement study,
IMST GmbH and financed by the Ministry of Environment and
Conservation, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, North
The measurements were performed on 87 measurement places
around 24 base
stations. The here described study differs from similar measurement
campaigns in the following points:
· The emissions were investigated systematically,
· Most of the measurement places were not outside,
but inside buildings,
· Starting from the results, a categorisation of the
base stations was
On some sites, RF emissions emanating from cordless telephones,
and TV towers as well as other sources were measured additionally
compare the base station emission with.
The measurements were performed with a combination of broadband
isotropic field probe and frequency selective spectrum analyser
Special attention was laid on an accurate maximum finding
indoor sites due to the locally rapidly varying electric fields
All temporary measured values were extrapolated to the maximal
operational state of the base station.
Although all measurement places were in direct vicinity of
stations the results show, that all measured fields are well
The Swiss "Installation Limit Value (ILT)" was
exceeded at only one
place, although a few sites reached the ILT nearly.
As an interesting point it was discovered, that the radiation
below the base station antenna is not always extremely low,
reach values in the ILT region as well. This seems to be contradictory
to the so called "umbrella effect".
A 24 hours instantaneous measurement impressively shows the
of the time varying traffic on the emissions.
Finally it was tried to divide base station installations
categories, depending on morphographical as well as technical
parameters. The idea was to look for possibilities of predicting
radiated fields in surrounding sites just before the installation
of the station.
Although the categorisation was done carefully, the results
the radiated fields in similar sites around stations of the
category were completely different, suggesting that the variety
existing base station installations is too large for an easy

for phone mast blunder
Families living near a mobile phone mast have been awarded
Seven families will get between £10,000 and £20,000
depending on their
proximity to the 20ft telecoms mast in Swindon.
Swindon Borough Council was ordered to pay the compensation
planners failed to object to the One2One mast within the necessary
days due to an administration error.
The award is thought to the first of its kind.
Local Government Ombudsman Jerry White found the council
maladministration causing injustice and has ordered the payment
compensation for the loss in value of the homes affected.
But most families said they would much rather the mast was
This was our ideal home, but from our back garden and my
bedroom all you can see is this mast Melanie Hall, resident
Melanie Hall, one of six residents to bring the complaint
council, said: "It should not have gone ahead in the
first place, it's a
residential area. "This was our ideal home, but from
our back garden and
my daughter's bedroom all you can see is this mast. "The
doesn't mean much to us really, ideally we wanted the mast
to come down."
A spokeswoman said Swindon Borough Council had apologised
families for the error - which was caused by the application
on the wrong pile of paperwork.
This delay meant One2One - now named T-mobile - could put
the mast up
even though planners had objected.
Council chief executive Simon Birch said: "The council
has accepted the
ombudsman's findings in full and has offered affected householders
compensation. "The council has introduced new procedures
with future applications for telecommunications development
this maladministration happening again."

The favourite fantasy headline of British comedian Spike
"ARCHDUKE FRANZ FERDINAND FOUND ALIVE! FIRST WORLD WAR
We are unlikely to see a similar headline in any American
but in the rest of the world, the continued failure of the
US and British
occupation forces in Iraq to find any of the `weapons of mass
destruction' that were the alleged reason for their invasion
is both a
diplomatic disaster and a joke in very bad taste.
Tony Blair ran into both phenomena and came away severely
shaken when he
visited Moscow last Tuesday. The British prime minister thought
he had a
good personal relationship with the Russian president, but
Putin is a former intelligence officer and, like his American
British counterparts, he was outraged at the way the US and
governments misrepresented the intelligence they got from
agencies in order to justify their war. Unlike the people
at the Central
Intelligence Agency and MI5, however, Putin was free to speak
-- and did
Putin openly mocked Blair for the failure of the "coalition"
to find any

sitting on cases of weapons of mass destruction, and is preparing

The Russian journalists at the press conference roared with
maybe it loses something in translation -- but Blair looked
grim. He is going to have lots more practice at that.
Two months ago, Blair talked a reluctant parliament into
attack on Iraq by warning of Iraqi WMD ready to strike on
notice, and President George W. Bush warned of "mushroom
clouds" if the
US didn't invade Iraq. It was all so desperately urgent, so
dangerous, that Washington and London couldn't wait for the
Nations arms inspectors to finish their job; they had to bypass
and invade right away. So many thousands of Iraqis (2,500
perhaps 10,000 soldiers) were killed, 137 US and British soldiers
looters destroyed most of Iraq's cultural heritage while "coalition"
troops stood idle by -- and nobody has found any WMD.
The rest of the world never really believed the White House's
justification for war anyway. As UN chief weapons inspector
said in late April, Washington and London built their case
for going to
war on "very, very shaky" evidence, including documents
subsequently turned out to have been faked -- and with the
war now over,
Washington isn't even bothering to insist that Saddam Hussein
threat to the United States anymore. "We were not lying,"
administration official told ABC News on April 28. "But
it was just a
matter of emphasis."
The real reason for the war, according to the ABC report,
was that the
administration "wanted to make a statement" (presumably
happens to countries that defy US power). Iraq was not invaded
it threatened America, but because "Saddam had all the
make him, from (the administration's) standpoint, the perfect
The assumption, at the White House and the Pentagon, was that
else could be bullied into forgetting the lies about WMD and
the fact of American control of Iraq.
They probably could be if the occupation turned out to be

but that does not seem likely. Instead, it is going sour very
US troops shooting civilian demonstrators, the Shiite majority
an Islamic state, and the beginnings of a guerrilla resistance

have a role in occupied Iraq, the desire of other powers to

Washington continues to insist that the UN weapons inspectors
be allowed back in, which means that the rest of the world
to believe the US and British forces even if they do claim
to have found
something. And frankly, hardly anyone in Britain believes
in Iraqi WMD
anymore either -- not even former Cabinet ministers.
On April 22, former foreign secretary, Robin Cook, said he
there was a single person in the intelligence services who
a weapon of mass destruction in working order would be found
and accused the White House of trying to bridge the credibility
"reinventing the term `weapon of mass destruction' to
artillery shell with a chemical content, or any biological
if it had not been fitted to a weapon". Even on that
definition, they have not found any WMD in Iraq yet -- and
British Defence Secretary Doug Henderson said on April 18:
"If by the
turn of the year there is no WMD, then the basis on which
this (war) was
executed was illegal."
The post-Sept. 11 patriotic chill still prevents any senior
politician from questioning the existence of Iraqi WMD in
this issue is not going to go away. As the situation in Iraq
deteriorates and the American body count rises, questions
America got talked into this mess will keep coming back, and
later they will have to be answered.
