Googling a very simple phrase led me to a list of “smart homes” that had done something rather stupid….Their systems had been made crawl-able by search engines….Opening a garage door could make a house ripe for actual physical intrusion….So if you can manage to get on someone’s Wi-Fi network – which is easy if they have no password on it – you could take control of their home.

“These companies are considering the home network as a fortress,” says Crowley. “In most cases, it’s anything but.”

SCIENCE: Teens Cell & Cordless phone use increases tumor risk

SCIENCE: [NZ] While cellphones were very popular for entertainment and social interaction via texting, cordless phones were most popular for calls. If their use continued at the reported rate, many would be at increased risk of specific brain tumours by their mid-teens, based on findings of the Interphone and Hardell-group studies.[Extensive international research references.]
The recent studies reach very different conclusions. With four exceptions the industry-funded Interphone studies found no increased risk of brain tumors from cellphone use, while the Swedish studies, independent of industry funding, reported numerous findings of significant increased brain tumor risk from cellphone and cordless phone use.

RESEARCH: Estimating the risk of brain tumors from cellphone use: Published case–control studies

Association between glioma, wireless phones, heredity and ionising radiation

► Use of both mobile phones and cordless phones increased the risk for glioma. ► The risk increased statistically significant per 100 h of cumulative use and per year of latency. ► Heredity for glioma and X-ray investigations of the head increased the risk.

Parents urged to limit children’s use of mobiles,cordless phone under new health warnings

The Federal Government's Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) also suggests that baby monitors be kept a metre away from cots, to minimise any electromagnetic emissions. The agency suggests using an old-fashioned wired-in landline phone instead of cordless phones, many of which "are continually transmitting low-level signals''

SCIENCE: Cellphones & Cordless Phones Up Risk for Glioma

PATHOPHYSIOLOGY JOURNAL, Vol 19, Issue 4, September 2012► Use of both mobile phones and cordless phones increased the risk for glioma. ► The risk increased statistically significant per 100 h of cumulative use and per year of latency. ► Heredity for glioma and X-ray investigations of the head increased the risk. ► There was no interaction between use of wireless phones and heredity or X-ray investigations of the head.

378 Sign Petition to Reject Burger King Cell Tower

SIGN ONLINE PETITION TO SUPPORT The parents of children attending Gonzales Community School and Principal Mike Lee telling City Hall that they do NOT want a 74 foot cell tower dangerously near their beautiful grade school--within falling distance of three gas pumps next to the Burger King at 100 St. Francis and the corner of W. Alameda.
More1  Medical Associations, medical doctors and scientists, many of whom work on the biological effects of wireless technologies, have expressed their concerns about the safety of wireless devices for schools.  They are asking for  wired information and communication technologies to be used in order to safeguard2  children and young people, protect and promote healthy development and maximize learning and achievement. These experts do not agree with the health protection agencies which currently support or 
allow the use of microwave, radiofrequency-emitting technologies by children and young people in schools.

Parents Vote Against Wi-Fi in B.C. Schools

...a majority of delegates to theB.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) decided there are enough unanswered questions to pass two resolutions. One calls on B.C. school districts to ensure they have at least one school that doesn’t have Wi-Fi, cordless phones or cell phones as an option for families. The other urges districts to stop installing Wi-Fi altogether.
Important regions of the brain necessary for learning, memory and other functions of the mammalian brain were impacted by the microwave radiation, including the hippocampus, cerebellum and frontal lobe, at exposures below the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) safety guidelines....providing new evidence for a potential relationship between everyday cell phone use, wireless transmitters and wireless computer equipment and electrosensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness and sleep disorders, as well as with tumors, Alzheimer's and even metabolic effects.
