EMF smog is invisible and this device will reveal the vibrational world!

The dangers of EMF and RF’s are becoming known and because we cannot feel or see the fields this is a handy device to alert us to the areas of high radiation as well as safe or quiet spots. The earth’s magnetic field is a very different resonance than the frequency chosen for digital equipment and more and more research is revealing the weakening and deleterious effects of these fields on our health.

SImply google EMF’s and you will find a slew of articles. Here is just one of 1,000’s that will clarify the basic thoughts about EMF’s.

Be safe.


Being Aware of EMF’s

November 25, 2010

Check out Dr Sinatra’s video about becoming aware (if for some reason you are not already aware) of EMF’s and some ways to protect yourself.

Never use microwave ovens, don’t hang out near one that is on, text don’t talk, use speaker phone, turn off your wireless at night, do NOT use Jawbones, etc…And of course, earthing ourselves using magnets is a good idea.

Social Networking at work – I read a random post on a friend’s page from another friend about her new sci-fi book available for FREE download. Curious, I clicked the link and downloaded what turned out to be a good and even inspiring read. A good storyteller with a spiritual dream for a better world, Deborah Pratt’s The Vision Quest, Book One reveals the Earth in the not-too-distant future is suffering from the effects of genetic tampering, over-corporatizing and greed. Freedom is hanging by a thread. There is hope involved, too, in the form of passionate and talented young people, some broad-thinking adults and a “Yoda”- like sage/teacher. The lost continents have risen due to massive earthquakes and storms and polar cap meltings and it is a brave new world, complete with sentient and dangerous robots and the precious and endangered Gnorbs of knowledge, of course.

Deborah Pratt was a co-executive producer and a writer on the Quantum Leap TV series. Book 2 is already out and Book 3 is about to be released. The Vision Quest website looks like a haven for teen interaction, including “transmissions” and online experiences including:

Pratering – a single, focused thought supported by love, organized on a mass level, to occur at a specific time with the intention to create a shift in consciousness and manifest a result into reality. We are the heroes we have been waiting for. The Quest begins now.”

iPad uPad

April 7, 2010

Everyone else is talking about it. Micah stood in line to pick his up on Saturday and is entranced by it, has downloaded dozens of free apps for it. I haven’t gotten one yet, but I know I will. I have most Apple products including a big MacPro for my music studio. Apple’s products are appealing in every way, user-friendly, intuitive, nice to hold and behold. Here is article in Gizmodo extolling the iPad’s design. It says it all.

Yale Clones Singers

November 22, 2009

I had to be satisfied with performing solo or with a group at college. Check out this group consisting of Sam Tsui and 5 Sam Tsui clones doing an awesome Michael Jackson medley, arranged and produced by Kurt Schneider. Both are Yale undergrads.

Move Over Ma Bell

October 27, 2009

Okay, I am not sure that I would need this service but check out GoogleVoice. On the google blog you can read more about how to keep your existing phone number and still take advantage of neat features like call recording, call screening and getting text messages via email. You can subscribe to Google Voice with your existing mobile number OR with a Google number. Watch the youtubes to see all the bells and whistles. The catch? You have to be invited. Visit the site and request an invite.

Everyone else is talking about it, so can I? The new Nano iPod has been announced with the new and improved Steve Jobs, Apple CEO. One is a video camera, radio and pedometer as well as music player and one is a now healthy looking genius.

“iPod nano is the world’s most popular music player with over 100 million sold and now we’ve added a video camera to its incredibly thin design, without any additional cost to the user,” according to Jobs.

Choose a RED Special Edition iPod nano and a portion of your purchase price goes to help fight AIDS in Africa. Good marketing strategy.

Cartoons as Real Folk?

July 21, 2009


This is a wonderful rendering real of our 2 dimensional cartoon favorites.Isn’t Charlie Brown sweet? and funny -looking?  All the characters are very distorted- which is right, isn’t it? Cartoons are stretching our imaginations (sometimes). And the exaggerations are for the most part so very accurate we can really get who the characters are as cartoons and even more so when they are humanized.

Crowd-Powered News

July 13, 2009


This is a great site. Regular people are contributing their opinions, findings and local news to this site: which  I will visit regularly.

For example: today I read Barbara Matthieson’s article on cellphone recycling in which she describes downloading a free postage label from Sprint. That simplifies the process for those of us who don’t want to pay the poastage and do want to recycle our phones.

Maybe I’ll even become a rookie journalist and do some contributing?

You can  go to the NowPublic Newsroom, where you can find out about the Community and members, check out how-to videos, journalism tips, and contributor Guidelines, and learn more about site Tools.

Got questions? Need help? Want tips on how to improve what you do on the site? They provide the pointers on what makes news on NowPublic and to find out more about how to get involved and share your news with the world. And you can attend the Forum where you can share your thoughts and tips with other NowPublic members.

Browse through Local or World news, Culture, Environment, Tech & Biz, Health, Style, Sports and Strange! Read Truemors—which seems to be a fun-ish section for spoofish “onion”-esque stories. Fun.

And of course you can comment, share, send to twitter, facebook, etal.


We have all been trapped in the labyrinth of telephone robotland trying to reach a human to speak with about a problem. Maybe you’ve needed to speak to someone at the cable company or the phone company or the credit card company, or even the local pharmacy? There are countless occasions I’ve shouted at the voice recognition system in total frustration. Hurray for gethuman! contains a database of national companies, their phone numbers and helpful hints to bypass the the robot phone systems and access a human to speak with. 

For example, if you are phoning American Airlines and need to bypass the system quickly to get to a person because you need to fly to Amsterdam suddenly…you press 0  at each prompt and ignore the messages. Neat. There are many hundreds of companies listed. If you find out that something in a system has changed, you can note that for gethuman to correct/check out.  You can add to list, too.

The gethuman™ movement was created from the voices of millions of consumers who want to be treated with dignity when they contact a company for customer support. They have 5 main goals:

-To catalog the steps consumers can take to bypass the automated phone system.

-To establish standards for customer service based on input from customers.

– To allow customers to rate businesses

-To create a forum for users to discuss experiences with customer service

-To share consumer tips on how to contact help and receive better service

The 3 team members are Paul English, an entrepreneurial and frustrated consumer, Walter Rolandi,who advises gethuman on the best of class human interface systems and Walt Tetschner who guides gethuman on industry relations.

Check this list next time you are calling and are befuddled by the automated voice system.

AND as of March 3, 2009, there is a free GetHuman app that you can download for your iPhone! The app dials the phone number for you after suggesting how to talk to a real person.
