Few months ago we reported that the ministry of education is about to ban the use mobile phones in elementary schools in Israel. Today we are happy to report that the formal instructions have been issued to the schools and to the press.

The news were published in Israel main news sites:

The instructions in general lines:
1. The use of mobile phones in schools, classes and recess will not be allowed.
2. The phones should be turned off and insert in to the bag.
3. Digital learning will be done using the schools' computers.
4. Kids will be allowed to use the phones to coordinate pickups and drop offs, before entering and exiting the school.

I would like to congratulate the Minister of education, Rabi Rafi Peretz, and the activist and parents that contributed to this, around Israel.

I am sure this move just made our schools a bit better.

DIY RF ALARM SYSTEM FOR YOUR HOUSE!!!

If you are an EHS person (Electromagnetic Hypersensitive person) you probably experienced before what if feels like when you open the door of your house and a person with a smartphone or other RF emitting device, come in to your house. At first you might not notice it, but after a while you will start feeling the pain.
In order to reduce the chance of that happening we need a RF ALARM SYSTEM that will go off when it will detect an RF signal.

It is possible to do it using the ENV RD10 that can beep when the RF levels are higher than 0.5mW/m2, or with the CORNET ED88TPLUS that sound the alarm when RF levels are higher than 0.18mW/m2. In the case of the CORNET ED88TPLUS  you can also add an external speakers that will make the alarm sound very loud.
Both the ENV RD10 and the CORNET ED88TPLUS can be used with an external power supply.
These of you that turn off the electric power, buth meters (and speakers) can be used with an external  power bank.

I would like to thank Shanny Druker for presenting the need for such a system.

Second "Stop 5G" protest In Tel Aviv Israel

At 10/08/2019, about 70 people attended the second "stop 5G" protest in Tel Aviv Israel.
The attendees hold signes calling for the promotion of health other then the promotion of 5G networks, about the possible side effects of "smart cities" and other 5G technologies.






from the top to bottom:
"5G , 10 times more radiation!"
"5G is a risk!"
"They just want cash on the expense of the residence"

5G frequency auction was launched in Israel, deployment in 2021

According to an article in Ynet (Israel leading news site), 5G frequency auction was launched in Israel, deployment in 2021.

Google tranlator link  - https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ynet.co.il%2Farticles%2F0%2C7340%2CL-5549977%2C00.html

https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-israeli-govt-publishes-5g-frequency-auction-1001293454

The will be 3 networks for private clients.
If the carriers will install more then 250 sites up to the end of 2021, they will get bonuses.
The networks will support the vast deployment of smart city, IOT, and other wireless technologies.
Several more networks for industrial and enterprise use.
The article does not say anything about the radiation factor.

The safety standard used in Israel for RF radiation, are based on heat effect only and does not protect from long term health damage. According to that standard it is possible to deploy high power cell towers and cell sites very close to houses and buildings.

EHS mechanisms, suggested treatment and medicine by Dr F. Greco

Few weeks back, Dr F GRECO from Montpellier-France sent me an email with the following text: 
Dear Sir,
I'm a french physician, and i saw on your blog a picture of you while
you have a migraine, i would like to send you a text i wrote explaining
how to treat and prevent EHS syndrome.
Please share this information and feel free to give me your comment.
Sincerely Yours
Dr F GRECO "

The text file he sent is viewable vie this link - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1r9Msssj8qnRj55rKXbkDoIlBceDMOsgs

Dr F Greco describe several mechanisms that EMF can affect EHS people. He advice to avoid triggers (EMF), eat well, have a gluten free diet without milk and low in sugar, sleep well, exercise, meditate and then consider treatment with medication (talk with your doctor before taking any drug!).
Then Dr F Greco describe a set of drugs that can be administered by your doctor and the effect expected (bases on EHS people reaction to the drugs in the past).

I thank Dr F Greco for bringing this info forward.
Please note I did not try any of the recommended medicine.
I remind you to talk with your doctor before taking any drug or medicine!

Why do I love the ENV RD10 so much?

I am in love.
My wife know all about it. 
It is not a secret, I talk about it all the time.
And my wife, she knows it is my new baby.

I am proud to say I helped in the process of the ENV RD10 creation. 
I helped by defining the use cases, the features and the requirements.
I also helped in the QA along the stages of development of the meter and the PC software. 
And now, since the day I got it, it is in my pocket, with me wherever I go.

It is sooooo wonderful.  

The ENV RD10 is a tiny EMF meter.
It is so tiny I forget it is in my pocket.
It fit perfectly into my Zippo pocket in my jeans. 
It is so tiny that most of the complains we get from people is that they don't remember where they left it. 

The ENV RD10 can measure RF, ELF Magnetic field and ELF Electric field.
It marks the level of the radiation on it 9 color leds (4 green, 3 yellow, 2 red). 
It has an audio alarm that goes off whenever the levels exceed the forth green light (in all the modes).
It has a sampling rate of 20000 per second, so it catches even the fast pulses. 

In RF mode it can measure between 100MHz to 8GHz, from 0.0005mW/m2 to 100mW/m2.
In ELM mode it can measure from 0.2mG to 20mG.
In ELE mode it can measure from 2V/m to 1000V/m.

It has a MINI USB connection that you can use to charge the internal battery, or connect it to a smartphone(in airplane mode) or a PC or Mac for Numerical measurements and recording of the measurement(!!!). 
The battery can last for 7 hours in normal mode, or for 12 hours in audio-only mode(only audio alarm , no light on led bar) . 

Users profile:
1. For people who don't like to read numbers and need a first easy to operate all in one meter.
2. For EHS people as a second "in pocket" & "go with" alarm meter.

What are the main use cases:
1.  Training  - the meter is so easy to use and the reading is very easy to understand. So the meter make a best choice for training and demos. 
2. Finding EMF sources and penetration points - The meter can be used to search your house for EMF sources and penetration points.  It will also allow you to see it the protection installed or the steps you did in order to reduce exposure helped,
3. An Alarm pocket size all in one meter - Can be used by EHS people, while they are on the go, while in their pocket, to alert them of rooms or places with high levels of RF/LFM/LFE radiation, or it someone with a hidden RF source approach them (happens to me all the time, and the meter sounds the alarm reminding me to ask this person to turn off his devices).
4. As a recording meter (when operating with a software on the PC/MAC/Smart phone (in airplane mode) to allow the user to record long measurements, even over few hours!!!

Special Features:
The meter has several software version (embedded) that include special features:
1. High Sensitivity mode - this version make the meter's alarm sounds off on the third green light (in RF it will sound off at 0.1mW/m2, while in normal sensitivity mode it will at 0.5mW/m2). 
2. Accumulation mode -  this version make the meter count the number of times every led was lighted over the last operation. The numbers accumulated will be displayed on the PC software the next time the meter will be connected to the PC. The numbers will give you an estimation of your exposure during the day. This feature brings down the sampling rate to 5000 per second.
3. Audio only mode - "Audio only" or "battery safe" mode the led lights do not light up. This allows the meter to work, with audio alarm while in your pocket, for about 12 hours on a single charge.

Lets make America Sick again! 5G all clear!

Lets make America Sick again! 
Lets get rid of all the regulation and continue to believe the industry that there is no health effect to Radio Frequencies.
Lets deploy more cellphone towers near people homes, so the industry can run the race for 5G while people suffer from the health effects of being so close to RF towers transmitting 24X7.

Lets all get 5G and see what happens.
