Cafe owners in Sydney are realizing that “Free WiFi” comes at a cost. As The Syndey Morning Herald reports, cafes are starting to limit or ban WiFi so that people will actually have real interactions.

This recent TED talk by David Eagleman is mind opening – literally. He speaks to how humans and animals perceive their environment.

Is nothing sacred? The St. Ambrose Catholic Church on Gilman Street in Berkeley has tentatively agreed to allow AT&T to put a new 4G cell phone tower in its steeple. Considering many residents of the community are opposed to the cell tower, this church is certainly not acting like a good neighbor. By now, most… Read More
This excellent video explains why humans often do not see a problem that is right in front of their eyes. It’s a world-wide human phenomenon that relates to nearly every public health issue we have ever faced. EMF pollution is no different. For those of us who are paying attention, the signs are now obvious: 1.) Thousands of… Read More
