Warning on Mobile Phone Radiation Effect

From my Boss. Please read on...

Dr. Carlo was hired by the Cellular Telephone Industry Association in 1993 to lead a $28 million, 7-year research program to determine if cell phones were safe.

He was fired when it became clear that his research did not support the cell phone industry’s claims of safety.

Observing the following simple precautions and recommendations can reduce your exposure to dangerous electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

Cell Phone Safety Recommendations

1. Don’t allow children to use cell phones, except for emergencies.

Ø Don't buy them a cell phone.

Ø Children’s skulls are thinner and their brains contain more fluid than adults’. Electromagnetic radiation travels more easily through liquids; therefore, radio frequencies travel through children’s brains much more easily. This puts children at a greater risk of developing cancer through exposure to EMR.

Ø Malignant brain tumors are the second leading cause of death in children [under the age of 15] and young adults [under the age of 34], according to NeurologyChannel. com

Ø Brain tumors now cause more deaths among children than any other form of cancer, reports Sydney TV News.

Ø If your children already have cell phones, and for whatever reason you decide not to change the status quo, don’t let them sleep with their cell phones under their pillows. (You might be surprised where your kids keep their cell phones!)

Ø They shouldn’t play games on cell phones, either.

Ø It’s wise to teach your children why you don’t want them to use cell phones. Educate them about the dangers. Help them understand and accept that you are responsible for their safety, and that, as they get older, they begin to share that responsibility too.

Ø Be an example to them by not using cell phones yourself if you can at all avoid it.

2. Avoid using a cell phone if you are pregnant, or suspect that you might be.

Ø Don’t use a cell phone with a baby or young child on your lap or in your arms. The developing organs of the fetus or child are the most sensitive to any possible effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure. [Reference: R. B. Herberman, MD, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (2008)]

Ø Ultrasound and electronic fetal monitoring also expose your unborn infant to EMR. You may want to consider avoiding these procedures unless absolutely necessary. [Reference: Dr. George Carlo, Medical Alert: Aggravated Symptom Relapses (May 2008)]

3. Limit the amount of time you talk on cell phones.

Ø The more time you spend talking on cell phones, the greater your risk of developing brain or eye cancer.

Ø Just a two-minute call on a cell phone can alter the natural electrical activity of the brain for up to an hour. [Reference: Spanish Neuro Diagnostic Research Institute]

Ø Be polite, but keep it brief. Discourage unnecessary conversations on the cell phone. You may be saving a life - quite possibly your own or that of a loved one.

Ø Consider using text messages as much as possible, but still only when truly necessary. Develop your own strategy for avoiding long conversations on the cell phone.

4. Use a regular phone as much as possible.

Ø Regular phones are your safest bet for conversations and work.

Ø Cordless phones aren’t safe either. The base of any cordless phone emits high levels of EMR, even when the phone is not being used. [Reference: Dr. George Carlo, Medical Alert: Aggravated Symptom Relapses (May 2008)]

5. Keep the cell phone as far away from your body as possible.

Ø By moving the cell phone just 5 cm (approximately 2 inches) away from your head while talking on it, you reduce by 75% the electromagnetic radiation that reaches your head. [Reference: R. B. Herberman, MD, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (2008)]

Ø You cut your EMR exposure to less than 1% by keeping the cell phone over 18 cm (approximately 7 inches) away from any part of your body. [Reference: R. B. Herberman, MD, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (2008)]

6. Avoid carrying your cell phone in your pocket, on your belt, or in your hand.

Ø The hip produces 80% of the body’s red blood cells and is especially vulnerable to EMR damage. Close proximity may also affect fertility. [Reference: Dr. George Carlo, Medical Alert: Aggravated Symptom Relapses (May 2008)]

Ø Body tissue in the abdomen absorbs radiation more quickly than the head.

Ø If you carry a cell phone in your purse, you should position it with the keypad facing toward you in order to get less EMR. For you women who like purses with two or more compartments, you can carry the phone in the compartment farthest from your body. Avoid carrying a cell phone in a fanny pack (also known, depending on where you live, as hip pack, bum bag, pouch, etc.) It’s too close to your body.

7. Avoid using wired headsets.

Ø Headsets, including the ear buds that come with most cell phones today, have been shown to act as antennas, channeling the EMR directly into the ear canal. [Reference: Dr. George Carlo, Medical Alert: Aggravated Symptom Relapses (May 2008)]

Ø When you use regular ear buds or ear pieces, you’re getting 3 times more EMR than if you held the cell phone against your ear, and you’re getting it directly into your ear canal, and therefore into your brain.

Ø This is also a good reason to avoid listening to music on your cell phone.

8. Use an air tube headset with ferrite beads.

Ø This type of headset is believed to be safer, because EMR can’t travel up the air tube like it does on a regular wired earphone.

Ø Unlike regular headsets, the air tube headset doesn’t act as an antenna.

Ø Ferrite beads suppress the EMR and dissipate it. In other words, they absorb the EMR and convert it into heat.

Ø For maximum protection, use an air tube headset with a ferrite bead placed as near as possible to the cell phone.

9. Use the speaker phone as much as possible.

Ø Never hold the phone directly against your head.

Ø EMR decreases in direct proportion to the distance the source is from your body.

Ø It's better if you don't even have the phone in your hand. The damage from EMR is not limited to tissue damage near the exposure site.

10. Some suggest using a BlueTooth head piece.

Ø It’s reported that BlueTooth headsets emit 1/100th the EMR of a normal cell phone. That’s good. But whatever EMR a BlueTooth headset does emit, it does so directly into the ear. Caution is warranted.

11. Avoid using a cell phone while in metal enclosures.

Ø This includes the following: Vehicles; Elevators; Airplanes; Trains; Subways; and any other metal enclosure. [Reference: Dr. George Carlo, Medical Alert: Aggravated Symptom Relapses (May 2008)]

Ø Turn your phone off inside all metal enclosures.

Ø Metal enclosures act like a Faraday cage, trapping some of the radiation and reflecting it back on you and others.

Ø Sometimes when I’m in an elevator I tell other passengers about the benefits of turning their phones off. Unfortunately, not many do, but who knows? Eventually they may start turning them off.

Ø There’s another very good reason not to talk on a cell phone when you’re driving: talking on the phone while driving, even if you use the speaker phone, increases the risk of having an accident.

Ø So our recommendation is to just turn off your cell phone when you get into your car. You can get your messages later when you arrive safely at your destination.

12. Only make calls when and where you have a strong signal.

Ø Cell phones automatically increase power output when the signal is weak, exposing you to greater EMR.

13. Avoid making calls when traveling fast.

Ø A cell phone automatically increases power when it is moving at high speeds (such as in a car, train, subway, or plane) as it attempts to connect to the next cell phone base station.

14. Turn your cell phone off at night.

Ø EMR emitted from cell phones can lower the quality of your sleep. All electrical appliances emit EMR, and therefore can interfere with the quality of sleep. [Reference: R. B. Herberman, MD, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (2008)]

Ø The Safe Wireless Initiative suggests moving your electric alarm clock or clock radio (this goes for any other electronic or electrical appliances, too) at least 1.8 meters (6 feet) away from your bed. A battery-powered alarm clock can be used near the bed.

Ø If you must leave your cell phone on during the night - to be able to receive emergency calls, for example - keep your cell phone at least 1.8 meters (6 feet) away from the bed. This might seem like a big inconvenience, but isn’t it worth it if it might keep you from EMR-induced cancer?

15. If you purchase a cell phone, get one with a low SAR (Specific Absorption Rate).

Ø The lower the SAR number, the better.

Ø The Motorola Razr V3x has a SAR of 0.14, which is the lowest we’ve seen. We’ve heard there may be others with even lower SAR ratings.

Ø The Motorola V195s has a SAR of 1.6, the worst on the market.

Ø Many cell phone manuals indicate the SAR number of that particular model.

Ø You can find most cell phone SAR rates here. (We’re including this link for its useful SAR information, but we don’t agree with much of what the site says. It’s a cell phone manufacturer forum, and much of what they say defends the companies’ policies.)

16. Act now. Don’t wait for health officials to acknowledge the dangers of cell phone EMR.

Ø Smoking, VIOXX, and Thalidomide (and the list goes on) were touted as safe for a long time, with tragic consequences.

Ø It is estimated that VIOXX was responsible for as many as 50,000 deaths in the US alone before it was taken off the market!

17. If we do our very best, we can trust God to do the rest.

Ø We can’t protect ourselves from all danger. And we don’t want to be fearful, as that’s one more stress that’s also detrimental to our emotional and physical health.

Ø But we can - and should - work at becoming truly informed, and then act on that information to the very best of our ability.

Ø Then, when we’ve done what we can, we can pray and trust God to do what we can’t.


Ø Take responsibility for your own health and your family’s.

Ø Exercise caution. It’s far better to be safe than sorry.

Ø God loves you and me. If we do what we can, He’ll do what we can’t. Do what you can.

Ang Taong Pikon - Talo

Sa mundong ibabaw marami talagang taong pikon. Do you believe me?Naniniwala ka ba mga Freindster?
Actually nabasa ko itong ginawa ni Kenya West na tungkol sa pag agaw niya ng microphone kay Taylor Swift na winner ng "Best Female Video" sa ginanap na MTV music award para sa awitin niyang "You Belong To Me".
Kasalukuyang nga papasalamat si Ms. Swift nang umakyat ng stage si Mr. West at sabihing mas gusto niyang manalo si Beyonce.
Sino ba itong si Kenya West? Siempre tinanong ko ang pinakamatalino sa buong internet na si Wikipdia. Rapper pala ang poging mama na ito na tuwing matatalo ay laging naaasar. Sarap asarin nito.
At aking napagtanto na dati niya na pala itong ginawa.

On November 2, 2006, when "Touch the Sky" failed to win Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards, West went onto the stage as the award was being presented to Justice and Simian for "We Are Your Friends" and argued that he should have won the award instead.[43][44] Hundreds of news outlets worldwide criticized the outburst. On November 7, 2006, West apologized for this outburst publicly during his performance as support act for U2 for their Vertigo concert in Brisbane, Australia.[45] He later spoofed the incident in the season premiere of Saturday Night Live's 33rd season (hosted by basketball player LeBron James) in a sketch where West appears on BET's 106th and Park St. and shows several instances of West at award shows (and backstage at SNL's Studio 8H) ranting about how he should have won (or in the case of the SNL incident, how he should have been chosen to host the episode).

In December 2006, Robert "Evel" Knievel sued West for trademark infringement in West's video for "Touch the Sky." Knievel took issue with a "sexually-charged video" in which West takes on the persona of "Evel Kanyevel" and attempts flying a rocket over a canyon. The suit filed in federal court claims infringement on his trademarked name and likeness. Knievel also claims the "vulgar and offensive" images depicted in the video damage his reputation. The suit seeks damages and to stop distribution of the video.[46] Knievel eventually settled the suit in November 2007, just days before his death.

Grabe ha! Mahirap palang maging judge ito. Kapag natalo ang gusto niyang manalo baka manghampas ng mike.
Parang yung naka-upo sa Malakanyang ngayun na laging pikon na, kurakot pa. hmmmp.
Ang moral lesson, huwag umatend ang mag pikon. Pagkat ang pikon laging talo.
Sarap paluhurin sa monggo, pagulungin sa slide na may blade sa gitna at ang babagsakan at batya alcohol. Pagtayo ay budburan ng asin at paminta.
Ewan! Basta galit ako. Hindi ko na siya bati.

Five signs of Aging - For men

Kalabaw lang daw ang tumatanda. Pero whether we like it or not may mga signs tayong mararamdaman upang malaman natin na tayo nga ay tumatanda na.

Puting buhok? No, may mga bata pa pero marami nang puting buhok.

HiV? or hair is vanishing? No, may kasama ako sa office mas bata sa akin pero mas ubos na ang buhok. Natutuwa pa nga siya ngayun dahil mas nakatipid siya ng shampoo. Kaya nga lang lumaki naman ang kanyang hinihilamusan. Nung una lang siya na problema. Pero sabi nga, sanayan lang yan.

So, according sa aking friend na si Gerry, ito ang 5 palatandaan na ang isang lalaki ay tumatanda na:

1.Lumalayo ang paningin pero lumalapit ang pag ihi.

2.Naka upo ay inaantok pero kapag nakahiga ay hindi naman makatulog.

3.Natatandaan pa ang nakaraan pero nakakalimutan ang kasulukuyan.

4.May naisip ang itaas pero walang magawa ang ibaba.

5.Dati matigas na naghihintay pero ngayun naghihintay kailan titigas.

Five signs of aging for men.
Kung kasama ja diyan, huwag na mahiya at mag iwan ng komento. Kung hindi ka pa kasali, don't worry at mararanasan mo rin yan. Asan ba ang salamin ko?
Buti na lang at wala pa ako kahit isa diyan.

Babu muna at abangan ang susunod na kabanata.

Bayantel DSL- Gigil to the Max

From "Connected" to "Disconnected" that is the system of our Bayantel dsl now for the past month already. Kakagigil na talaga.
In fairness naman sa Bayantel hotline- 4112000 ay maganda naman silang sumagot at mag bigay ng complain number.
Ngayun lang, at this minute ay kaka-"connected" lang ng dsl namin. Kaya dapat ay bilisan ang pag create ng post at maya-maya lang ay automatic mag "disconnected" ito.

Parang Christmas light na close-open ang takbo niya. Grrrrr!!! Nakakagigil na talaga.
Unang sira daw ay ang splitter ng phone at dsl. So nagpalit.

Ganun pa rin, after ilang pang reklamo at punta ng technician ay modem naman ang sira, so palit na naman.
Ganun pa rin. so after ilang tawag uli at mga sagot na "Sir, Paki-patay ang modem then sige po buksan niyo na ang modem, kapag umilit uli tawag ho kayo uli dito". Buti naman kung makausap mo siya uli.
Kung hindi lang masama pumatay ng kausap, ang dami ko na siguro napatay dahil sa kakapatay at bukas ng modem na ito.

Ganun pa rin so after ilang tawag at may nag punta na namang technician ay cable naman ng linya ang may sira then yung phone daw namin ang may sira.

Muhang ako na ang masisiraan ng bait bago tumino itong Bayantel DSL namin.
Quezon City area ako malapit sa Sandigan Bayan.

Pwede kaya malaman kung okey ba ang service ng PLDT dsl sa area namin?

Any comment nga friends?

Ten Commandments of over 40 years old

Photo from scotsman001

Got this email from Boss Alex and I thought of sharing this with you also.
Ten Commandments of over 40 years old

1. Focus on enjoying people , not on indulging in or accumulating material things.

2. Plan to spend whatever you have saved. You deserve to enjoy it and the few healthy years you have left. Travel if you can afford it. Don’t leave anything for your children or loved ones to quarrel about. By leaving anything, you may even cause more trouble when you are gone.

3. Live in the here and now, not in the yesterdays and tomorrows. It is only today that you can handle. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow may not even happen.

4. Enjoy your grandchildren (if you are blessed with any) but don’t be their full time baby sitter. You have no moral obligation to take care of them. Don’t have any guilt about refusing to baby sit anyone’s kids, including your own grand kids. Your parental obligation is to your children. After you have raised them into responsible adults, your duties of child-rearing and babysitting are finished. Let your children raise their own off-springs.

5. Accept physical weakness, sickness and other physical pains. It is a part of the aging process . Enjoy whatever your health can allow.

6. Enjoy what you are and what you have right now. Stop working hard for what you do not have. If you do not have them, it’s probably too late.

7. Just enjoy your life with your spouse, children, grandchildren and friends. People, who truly love you, love you for yourself, not for what you have. Anyone who loves you for what you have will just give you misery.

8. Forgive and accept forgiveness. Forgive yourself and others. Enjoy peace of mind and peace of soul.

9. Befriend death. It’s a natural part of the life cycle. Don’t be afraid of it. Death is the beginning of a new and better life. So, prepare yourself not for death but for a new life with the Almighty.

10. Be at peace with your Creator …For… He is all you have after you leave this life

Share and Enjoy
Nakarelate ba kayo?
