39+ houses catch fire as overpressurized gas lines cause explosions across Massachusetts -- Unclear if due to operator error or a computer hack by magnora7 in news

[–]i_cansmellthat 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Looks like the hurricane is getting all the press. We used to eye roll category 1 or 2 hurricanes, didn't we? Not making light of the storm surge, it's a big deal but this has gotten a lot of hype.

Whether the explosion was caused by hacking or user error, wouldn't the public usually be clamoring for accountability? Columbia Gas is the provider, and they are a subsidiary of NiSource, which is one of the largest utility providers in the nation with 3.5 million gas customers, according to wikipedia. Maybe news providers don't want to call them out too loudly?

Thanks! Speaking of podcasts, any considerations to starting your own? I know it's a huge amount of time, and not sure if it is profitable, but it's a good platform for you.

And a random thought concerning children and exposure to 5G, children are much more able to tolerate high fevers than adults. Maybe they would be more adaptable to the tech than adults, if the tech does present a problem. My day is packed today, I will search around tonight and post if I find a study that has looked at it.

That makes sense. Would it be ok if I throw a question or two on this topic at you in the future? You break it down well, and my brain is foggy at the moment. I'll have a "what about this" moment probably on Friday.

Thanks for the detailed reply, really good info to consider. I probably should have put this in the conspiracy category. The science, facts, and evidence are maybebeing loosely played with currently. Some of the findings and studies look sound, then you come across a site stating, "If you have these symptoms you may be EMF sensitive..." and the list contains any ache or pain that a 30 something adult has on a weekly basis. That said, I can see telecommunications companies not being forthcoming with any negative findings, after all they are seeking profits.

In studies of ionizing radiation, it's been shown that any cellular mutation may not be apparent for up to 20 years. And they really don't have much to go on, the bulk of the data collected came from the dropping of the atomic bombs back in the 40's. What if constant exposure to 5G frequency needs time to become detrimental? Or maybe there is a genetic component that predicts certain individuals can be affected but others can't. I think ultimately they don't know, and I'm not sure they should be increasing the exposure of populations if they don't. Personally, I haven't read enough about the studies to have a position but I'm paying attention.

I do have concerns about exposure to a developing fetus and to very young children. The cellular turn over is so fast, and they are being bombarded by this tech. Personally, I don't put the phone to my ear anymore, but I still put my computer on my lap.

Really interesting about MRI causing burns when crossing your legs, I didn't know that. I spent a week cross training to be an MRI tech about ten years ago (I didn't like it at all so I stepped out and let someone else do it, I'm not sure if they even cross train anymore). Burns weren't mentioned, they were more focused on not bringing oxygen tanks in the suite.

He is putting himself out there with this testimony. I don't know much about him, but I respect what he is saying because no one else is in his position is saying much at all. I especially like that he calls out the FCC. He says that they shouldn't be in charge of towers that produce possible health risks, especially since they are staffed with ex-telecommunications executives.

Even the CDC won't say cell phones (or radiofrequency radiation) don't cause cancer, they don't commit either way but they do acknowledge a possible link to gliomas, a type of malignant brain cancer. The cell phone makers also acknowledge this in the info brochure included with a cell phone, in very small print in the last pages. At least that is where I found it when I looked in mine.

Are we missing the big picture when it comes to glyphosate? by i_cansmellthat in C_S_T

[–]i_cansmellthat[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Thanks!

I am afraid to play around with all of the "cides" or whatever is added to our food to find a total, that would be truly frightening. Add to that the plastic residue and emissions....

Speaking of pounds of glyphosate...in 1993 less than 4lbs/square mile were applied to agricultural areas in the US, in 2015 that number was 88.06lbs/square mile. I need to source these numbers, I wrote them in some notes and not sure which link cited them, but that increase is huge. I'm curious if recent testing on glyphosate in food can be compared to any testing performed when spraying wasn't so heavy. Will post if I find anything.

I can only conclude that this is all part and parcel of agenda 21 or something similar.

I agree, but sometimes I wonder if it's just greed. Maybe a mix of both.

However toward the end of those 3 minutes your body will panic and you will stand up.

That's what I mean, you either stand up or pass out, either way the airway will open and you will breathe and not die. I don't think suicide in this manner can be done, the will to live kicks in and you remove the obstruction (if your hands are free and you can reach it). To be in that state for 3 minutes and overcome the urge to breathe is beyond what most people could do. 3 minutes is an incredibly long time in that situation, and it would take 5-6 minutes to die. If the tox screens were clear, it's an incredible feat for one to manage, let alone 3 people. I've been trying to think of a scenario where this method could be successful and I can't, don't know why this stuck with me all day.

Edit: sorry for the morbid stuff on a positive post

Really good show; you come off as knowledgeable, calm, and open to other perspectives. Lots of good info about stuff I didn't know!

Something I thought of while listening: The way I understand asphyxia, after about 3 minutes a person loses consciousness. When a person loses consciousness, every muscle relaxes and goes absolutely limp. There have been cases in which a person is alone and choking on something, passes out, muscle relaxation will cause the obstructing object to dislodge (if it is not wedged), and they wake up breathing on the floor. Wouldn't suicide using a doorknob to asphyxiate require a constant force to obstruct the airway? At some point the victim would pass out before death, removing that force. I don't have any idea how it was set up but thought I would throw that out there.

Anyway, awesome interview!

Where is Glyphosate Banned? by i_cansmellthat in Health

Thanks for posting the graphic, that is really helpful and everyone needs to see it, click on it, and spread it around.

Not really surprised that Monsanto is linked with regulatory capture, but fairly shocked at how long that list is. It is so blatant that the game is rigged in their favor when you look at that, and they have gotten away with so much with hardly a whisper from the press.

I'm wondering if the merger with Bayer and the upcoming name change was staged to coincide with the lawsuit and negative press; it seems too convenient.

It looks like those in charge of public safety here in the US just let these guys run with little or no checks; maybe I'm wrong but I'm looking into how the system operates at the moment (and it's not exactly user friendly). The amount of glyphosate used has exploded in the last 20 or so years in the US; from less than 4lbs/square mile in 1993 to 88.06lbs/square mile in 2015. Common sense would tell me that the exposure limits would be exceeded with that much increase, not sure if and how food and water was being monitored. So much fear mongering and shilling out there it's hard to get at facts.

A good list of countries as well as U.S. cities that have banned or restricted glyphosate. From July 2018, found on the website of the law firm that represented Dwayne Johnson against Monsanto.
