The age-old adage First Do No Harm should be the tempering goal of not only medicine, but government and industry, especially when they team up to deploy new technologies, set policies and serve the people.

This blog exists to reveal and analyze areas in which these powerful groups are failing to "first do no harm."

Jibo "companion" robot beats smart phones - in surveillance capability

 
“JIBO isn't an appliance, it's a companion, one that can interact and react with its human owners in ways that delight.“

Your smart phone's surveillance capabilities to track your whereabouts and contacts and conversations and photos and docs you shared is about to be FLATTENED by JIBO.



The "family companion" Jibo robot is ready to interact with and record everything about you and your family, snapping photos, tracking specific people, keeping tabs on daily habits and patterns and interactions, birthdays, friends, relatives, foods, bedtimes, illnesses, pets, thoughts. Your smart phone could not keep up. Your laptop is left in the dust.

This cute little "family member" will keep mom company while she bakes bread and play the children bedtime stories and tuck them in. "He" or "she" will likely communicate with smart appliances and utility meters and be able to monitor and schedule every aspect of your life, energy use, food choices, work, etc.

But by any other name would the Jibo be as creepy?
"Jibo" (the adjective) means "really freakin' cool." As a noun, the word Jibo means weed (cannabis) in eastern Switzerland. Wow, great name for a family companion...

Corporations will love Jibo providing up-to-the-minute consumer information so they can market more stuff to your family. And Jibos will be the hackers' dream. Criminals could scoop up your data from the wireless signals, or by kidnapping your companion "bot."

Of course, Jibo's life-blood is wireless radiation from a home network or wifi system. Most people currently accept wireless because they have not heard about the biological damage from radiofrequency radiation. And the Jibo will not be programmed to warn anyone either, for that would be the end of Jibo!

A Jibo could be the biggest data collector a person might ever "invite" into their home - (topped only by the IRS?) In the Big Picture, this is a seemingly benign step in the push for computers to take over human brain functions, which would render people helpless without their computers to remember things for them. A "smart house" will interface with smaller components, such as the Jibo. Science fiction about this type of situation does not usually end well.

Tech expert: a lot of people could "have problems" from cell phone radiation...

 Speaking of the higher radiation of iPhone 6, a tech expert admits:  "If there is a problem, unfortunately, there's going to be a lot of people with problems..we're not gonna know for a while."

Translation: the industry and its crony regulators (and uninformed consumers) are willing to take the risk of cancers, heart problems, autism, insomnia, etc. while long term research continues - despite over 1800 modern studies showing biological damage from wireless such as allowed. (See MD Symposium to understand the science in no uncertain terms - what is being done to future generations.)

In other words, THE ONGOING RISK TO ALL (no one can avoid this radiation) has been condoned by industry and its crony regulators. EVERY PERSON is part of the involuntary EXPERIMENT. (You cannot be safe even if you choose not to use a device or service, since ambient radiofrequency/microwaves exposure continues to grow, increasing second-hand microwave radiation exposures everywhere).

Apple Inc.'s iPhone 6 Plus Radiates More Than Samsung's Galaxy Note 3: Should You Be Concerned?

By Louis Bedigian October 1, 2014 10:54 AM

There has been a lot of talk about Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone 6 and the radio frequency (RF) radiation dangers of storing it in a pocket.

Apple has been warning consumers about the risks of RF exposure for at least a few years. One document, iPhone 5 RF Exposure Information, can be found in the legal section of its site. Other warnings were also issued inside the manuals of older iPhone models, including the iPhone 3G.

“My take is like every other American. We just don’t know,” tech industry expert and analyst Jeff Kagan told Benzinga. "I hear some say that it's a radiation risk. I see others, mostly from the cell phone side, showing studies saying there is no risk. I don't know what to believe."

Related Link: The Apple Inc. Watch Versus Competitors: What Do Analysts Think?

Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group, thinks Apple is warning consumers to "hold off any potential litigation that might result if suddenly a researcher did find that proximity to the radio was harmful."

"There has been a lot of (mostly anecdotal) information that radio waves close to your body could be unhealthy," said Enderle. "I think Apple is protecting themselves with [the warnings]."

At press time, Apple had not returned numerous requests for comment.

iPhone 6 Plus Vs. Galaxy Note 3

All cellular devices expose consumers to a degree of RF radiation. To determine the worst offenders, Federal Communications Commission requires manufacturers to test the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) of each handset. SAR shows the rate at which humans absorb RF radiation.

Where does Apple fit in?

According to RF Safe, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have an SAR of 1.18 watts per kilogram when positioned near a user's head. That's below the legal limit of 1.6 W/kg, but it is nearly three time's greater than Galaxy Note 3, which has an SAR of just 0.35 W/kg.

RF Safe noted that when cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are running simultaneously, the iPhone 6's SAR jumps to 1.58 W/kg.

On average, most Samsung devices featured an SAR below 0.5 W/kg, while most iPhones had an SAR of 1.11 or higher. Only the original iPhone (0.974 W/kg) and the iPhone 3GS (0.79 W/kg) had lower SARs.

Motorola devices tended to have the highest SAR. The Droid Maxx, for example, has an SAR of 1.54 W/kg when positioned near a user's head.

Evidence Remains Unclear

"I think it's going to be a while before we have any real evidence," Kagan said of the possible dangers.

"If there is a problem, unfortunately, there's going to be a lot of people with problems. And if there's not a problem, there won't be. But we're not gonna know for a while. So what do we do? We either ignore it and carry our phones wherever we want, or we take the extra step and keep the phones half an inch away from our body."

Disclosure: At the time of this writing, Louis Bedigian had no position in the equities mentioned in this report.

WI: Public Service Commission records reveal PLEAS for smart meter opt outs due to health impacts, 2009-2014

What if your utility forced you to have latex or peanut fumes pumped into your home and yard in order to get service despite the fact even little amounts made you ILL? What if the top regulatory agency refused to make them accommodate your need for a meter that did not impair you?

Such is the case with wireless digital "smart" meters in Wisconsin and elsewhere. We researched the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin complaint records from January 2009 to June 2014 and found a stream of desperate pleas from customers asking to be accommodated with analog meters due to health impacts from smart meters. ALL were denied.

Luckily, awareness of the need to accommodate people with wireless biological reactions has begun in the U.S. schools. A Michigan boy and an LA teacher have each received accommodation for wifi-free computers in their classroom areas.

Testimony from LA teacher before the school board:




How long will it take for the utility monopolies to have to accommodate people IN THEIR OWN HOMES AND APARTMENTS? The bigger question may be will utilities and service commissions BE HELD LIABLE for denying accommodation as awareness grows? Because they should.

Quarentine, a novel idea?

At all levels, precautionary quarantine is smart in dealing with a deadly infectious disease, from the person and family level to the health care facility and community level to the national level.

America is asleep to the spread of Ebola. No one in leadership seems to care enough to try to protect people. One must ask what part of the word quarantine do leaders and agencies not understand? Is the CDC blind to biology? Are the President and Congress people ignorant of the need to protect the people here? If the U.S. falls, weakened by outbreaks, this nation will be less able to send supplies and help hard-hit countries, especially Africa.

Quarantine must be applied to protect everyone. Leaders and agencies need to show they understand biology and disease and apply this age-old practice at all levels. The refusal to promote quarantine creates serious questions about the intent or competency of those who hold the power.

"Star Trek Syndrome" pandemic explains addiction to wireless

I propose the "Star Trek Syndrome"  (SSS) as the reason we have unsafe radiation emitting technology racing to blanket the whole environment - with no precautionary biological limits.

Let me explain the new term, which was casually used in a few discussion threads at various sites, but not codified since:
 
In Star Trek (and other fantasy and science fiction) you see "magic" gadgets that futurists and technology creators work to bring to life here and now. But to proceed unhindered, they must ignore the natural laws and science of Earth, and convince others to ignore them, too. Out-dated assumptions must be trumpeted. Any new science that would slow their "progress" must be ignored or shredded. Nothing must stop their dream!

Consequently, the public, you and I, mostly buy into the one-sided vision and its products because we are infected by "Star Trek Syndrome" beliefs. After all, if we saw this magic portrayed in TV and movies it must be okay!

Plus we (blindly) assume the "authorities" are protecting public health. (another aspect of this syndrome). And we become addicted to the new way of life, demanding more data and faster connection without a thought about the radiation. The authorities which benefit from the technology insist we have nothing to fear. Many of the authorities are infected by SSS, as well. Dissenters who think and read and question are labeled - luddite, paranoid, psychosomatic - in a fevered attempt to defend a harmful technology.

SSS is highly infectious and difficult to eradicate. Not everyone has caught it, but those who have cannot envision how to live using their own brain and wits or wired connections. Those who are not infected are few, but must try to warn others. It is not fun or convenient to tackle a pandemic, but for the sake of life itself it must be done.
