Monsanto may have dropped its name, but it can't drop the thousands of cases being brought against it by cancer sufferers claiming its weed-killer Roundup gave them non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the first of which goes to trial Monday, CNN reported.

The first plaintiff to get his day in court is Dewayne Johnson, a 46-year-old Bay-area father of two, but for Johnson that is a dubious honor. Johnson is being granted an expedited trial because his doctors say he is nearing death, and California law facilitates speedier trials in such cases.

Johnson worked doing pest management for a county school system and used Roundup 20 to 30 times per year in the line of duty. Now, he has days when lesions cover 80 percent of his body and he is too ill to speak.

  • About 3,000 Swedish people have inserted a microchip into their bodies to make their daily lives easier.
  • People with the implants can wave their hand near a machine to unlock their office or gym, rather than taking out a key card.
  • So-called biohacking is on the rise as more people depend on wearable technology and interconnected devices.
  • Many microchip users are not concerned with hacking or surveillance at this point.

Thousands of Swedes are having microchips implanted into their bodies so that they don't need to carry key cards, IDs, and even train tickets.

Fitbit Was Recalled Due to Mysterious EMF Wi-Fi Symptoms, Complaints Mounting

Fitbit was recalled due to mysterious EMF wifi symptoms, complaints mounting

Judging by the ubiquity of Fitbits – those faceless watches nearly every woman wears today, with or without their active wear – this activity tracker has got to be the most popular fitness item. It uses WiFi (radiation) to track people’s every step and movement, how many calories burned, miles walked, and even tells time. This information also beams out to a personal account where the user can log-in and add more health stats in order to watch goal progression.


Despite Recalls and Reported Side Effects in Adults, Fitbit Launches Wearables for Kids

Despite Recalls and Reported Side Effects in Adults, Fitbit Launches Wearables for Kids
By B.N. Frankactivistpost.com, 15 June 2018

Who cares if there have already been formal recalls on Fitbits based on rashes in adults and other side effects have been reported by users.

The Fitbit Ace has been designed for kids of 8 and up:

Fitbit said the Ace will motivate with customizable step, active minute and sleep goals, celebratory messages and badges, and challenges for the family, as well as for the child.

With the Fitbit app and a family account, parents will be able to review activity, and so control and manage who their children connect with and what information they see.


The stats are also age appropriate, with no highlighted calorie intake, weight and body fat/BMI or public social features.

The company said it launched the device to help combat rising obesity rates, with the idea of making it fun to be fit.

Will We Ever Start Using “The Precautionary Principle” With WiFi Technology –Even With Our Kids?

Ian Phillips was a business executive whose job required he spend many hours on a mobile phone. After learning he had a lemon-sized tumor on his brain, he started campaigning to raise awareness about the risks of using cell phones, especially by children.

Some noteworthy statements made by Ian before his passing:

"My ear would be red when I left work at the end of the day. I didn’t think what it was doing to my brain.

"I tell people that I am convinced my cancer was caused by using my mobile up to six hours a day.

"Even my doctors won’t argue with me when I tell them how much time I was spending on it at work."

Decades of research has already proven that cell phone and WiFi radiation as well as other sources of electrical pollution (Electrosmog) is harmful to health. We have been warned about this off and on over the years.

Many of us don’t think about getting sick until it happens to us or the ones we love.

Monsanto Has Quietly, Deceitfully Changed Its Name

Monsanto Has Quietly, Deceitfully Changed Its Name
by Sean Adl-Tabatabaiyournewswire.com, 6 June 2018

Agricultural giant Monsanto is a serial killer. Since they began developing the carcinogenic glyphosate-based herbicide ‘Roundup’ in the 1970’s and GMO seeds in the 1980’s – millions of people around the world have died as a direct result of their toxic products.

Following an avalanche of lawsuits and criticism from world leaders, the agricultural giant decided to quietly change its name in an attempt to fool consumers into thinking they are no longer being exposed to their dangerous products.

On Thursday, German drugmaker and chemical company Bayer finalized its $66 billion deal to acquire Monsanto and rebrand (in name only).

Businessinsider.com reports: In a statement on Monday, Bayer said it planned to drop Monsanto’s 117-year-old title and would henceforth be known only as Bayer.

Yes, We Can Teach Our Children about Technology, But Let's Just Ban Phones in School

Yes, we can teach our children about technology, but let’s just ban phones in school

We need to provide safe spaces where kids can learn positive online behaviours

Banning smartphone use in schools has been found to 
boost results.  LSE researchers estimate it as equivalent
to providing an extra five days of school.

When I heard that Eton now requires its year 7s to hand in their mobile phones at bedtime, my immediate thought was I quite like the idea of a check-in, zone-out service that would confiscate my smartphone as the Love Island credits start to roll and return it in time for the 8am news bulletin. But if Eton expects its 13-year-old boarders to hand in their phones overnight, where are they the rest of the time? And why are older boys allowed to keep their phones overnight?

On schools and smartphones, I’m an enthusiastic proponent of the nanny state. After Emmanuel Macron made it a key pledge in his presidential campaign, the French government is banning mobile phones in schools altogether after September. In the UK, the decision is left to headteachers: some ban them, others take a more permissive approach.

  • Television producer and reality show judge Simon Cowell said he hasn't used a cell phone in 10 months, he told The Daily Mail.

Television producer and reality TV show judge Simon Cowell hasn't used his mobile phone in almost a year — and he told a U.K.-based publication that it's "absolutely made me happier."

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Cowell — known for his work on "American Idol" and "X Factor" and his notorious on-air insults — said he used to get irritated when he had a meeting, and everyone was their phone.

"I literally have not been on my phone for ten months," the TV mogul told The Mail.

A human chain demands transparency in the deployment of 5G in Segovia

International experts at a scientific conference held in the city warn about the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields for people and the environment.

A human chain formed by dozens of people carrying posters and a scarf of 300 meters of virgin wool dyed with natural dyes, yesterday in Segovia requested transparency in the implementation process of 5G in the city, which has been chosen by Telefónica, next to Talavera de la Reina, to pioneer services with this new communications technology.

The participants started in the Plaza de Día Sanz, next to the Aqueduct, and they went in and out through the arches of the monument, demanding clarity from both Telefónica and the City Council in the deployment of the 5G. Then they marched to the Plaza Mayor where the protesters deposited shoes as a symbol of all those who are suffering due to exposure to electromagnetic fields and who have not been able to participate in this act of protest.

"It's something to do with the environment"... These environmental factors could include changes in the education system and media environment, nutrition, reading less and being online more, Rogeberg said.
