Cyberattack forces WV Hospital to scrap computers

Princeton Community Hospital in rural West Virginia will scrap and replace its entire computer network after being struck by the cyberattack paralyzing computers globally.

The cyberattack, known as Petya, froze the hospital’s electronic medical record system early Tuesday, leaving doctors unable to review patients’ medical history or transmit laboratory and pharmacy orders, said Rose Morgan, the hospital’s vice president of patient care services.

Officials were unable to restore services, and found there was no way to pay a ransom for the return of their system. So, after consulting with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and cybersecurity experts, officials made the decision to replace the system.

Now, doctors, nurses and other hospital staff are adjusting to what will be days of working off paper forms to record vital signs, order medications and scribble notes…

Would be interesting to know whence Petya originated.

Yet another form of socially sanctioned child abuse: WiFi in schools

Remember the denial around tobacco and asbestos? Where corporate profits are at stake, it’s difficult to get the word out.

An interesting comment on this video, written by Sylvan Moir

I got progressively sicker with horrible symptoms living in a certain house. I had brain fog, sleeplessness, extreme fatigue, a burning sensation all over, extreme depression and irritability. Life became a nightmare. I thought of many possibilities. I even thought maybe the strange architecture of the place was maybe to blame at one point.

Than I take a microwave meter and sniff around with it. To my astonishment there are microwave readings in the house, which become even stronger when I venture outside. This surprises me because this is in a mountain area with no masts, few houses and no internal microwave-emitting devices in the house. Then I go up a side road on my motorbike and find this strange metal structure in a field near a pass.

This is emitting powerfully, and it is less than a mile from the house. It is a tetra mast that the police use to communicate with their cars on the very rare occasions a police car goes up the valley – (once a year or so).

I decide this is a likely culprit. So I stay nights in a camp-site a few miles away – less than 3- which however is completely shielded from that mast by the rugged terrain. Instant and complete relief of all symptoms. I go back to the house to eat and conduct business by the ‘phone there. What I notice, every time , is it takes about 2 hours for the symptoms to set in again in earnest and in about 5 hours they are again extremely bad. This happens every single time I move to the house, the symptoms disappear every single time I go back to the camp-site.

I have spoken to dozens of other people who are particularly sensitive to man-made microwaves, and the story is usually ( not always) the same : i.e the person had not a clue or suspicion that mobile ‘phones or routers or towers were causing their symptoms. ( Often they used a mobile ‘phone themselves – I didn’t). It took usually a long time – sometimes years and often months, to narrow the culprit down .

Intrinsically the hypothesis that fear of the microwave-based technologies is in some way operating on the psyches of the people involved is at least logically possible. It seems exceptionally unlikely to anyone who actually knows the stories of those involved. We need also to consider how ants and bees succeed in being negatively affected – and tomatoes and other plants and many animals – by these microwave radiations, when presumably they do not have a fear of microwave-technologies gleaned from newspapers or television or anywhere else.

On the other hand, we need to consider the consequences to the multi-trillion telecom industry of their devices proving unsafe. This is a result they simply CANNOT stand or allow. They have put a massive effort into this “nocebo” hypothesis in order to protect their industry. The provocation studies on so-called “nocebo” are flawed in many ways. Perhaps the strongest is the mere and simple fact that if subjects are unable to tell within an hour or two of exposure whether a signal is on or not that does not begin to demonstrate that electrohypersensitivity is a nocebo effect.

Hay fever is real although often sufferers do not know when their exposure causing symptoms occurred. Often they can guess when it must have – but they can often not sense when it actually is. The same for many environmental illnesses.

It is true, by the way, that my story does not absolutely PROVE the tetra tower was causing my symptoms, however it makes is extremely likely, – especially when similar stories abound. I would have to be highly irrational not to believe my symptoms came from that tetra tower.

Wi-Fi Devices Increase Mercury Release from Dental Amalgams

Article by Sayer Ji

Recent research indicates that our increasingly Wi-Fi saturated environment could be greatly amplifying the dangers of mercury exposure from dental amalgams.

A new study published in the Journal of Neuroimmunology, entitled, “Effect of radiofrequency radiation from Wi-Fi devices on mercury release from amalgam restorations”, reveals that our now ubiquitous exposure to Wi-Fi radiation may be amplifying the toxicity of dental amalgams and other forms of mercury exposure in the human body…

Brazilian researchers looked specifically at the potential for Wi-Fi signals to increase the release of mercury from dental amalgams, which are composed of approximately 50% elemental mercury…

In the discussion section of their paper, they point to previous research that has also found exposure to both MRI, and microwave radiation from cell phones, also produce increased release of mercury from dental amalgam.
