SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A bill that would lead to the proliferation of refrigerator-sized 5G cell tower boxes across the state is now on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk – and health advocates are pressing for a veto.
SB 649 would allow telecom companies to install 5G and other wireless cell equipment on poles and on the ground every few hundred feet without getting a permit from the local jurisdiction, cutting off public input.

How often do you see kids using iPads, iPhones, and any other touch screens? Technology has slowly but surely become deeply engrained within society, and some schools are even distributing touch screen tablets to students to use while in class. They’re convenient, paperless, and extremely relevant given that you practically need to know how to use technology in today’s society. However, are there any downsides to children using touch screens, especially for prolonged periods of time? Read more? Click Below.
A recent study published this year in Scientific Reports examined the effects of frequent touch screen use in children. Their findings suggest that increased usage may negatively affect children’s sleep patterns.
Details of the Study
The researchers sent an online survey to 715 UK-based parents asking for details of their children’s media usage,

True Community Grows Through Cell Tower Fight
(March 22, 2016) It all came together at a neighborhood church on what would become a dramatically stormy night in the Northern Colorado town of Fort Collins. Unlikely bed-fellows found themselves packed shoulder to shoulder into a 15 x 40 room of more than 100. An iconic telecommunications company; dozens of concerned citizens, including their kids; and the church elders and parishioners – all brought together by a remarkable supermom, come community organizer. They were here to discuss a most controversial topic, which, for the first time in almost two decades is finally making its way back into the national conversation.

The telecom industry is working with legislators throughout the nation to pre-empt city and county authority on the placement of cellular facilities. In California the Bill is SB 649 and despite that over 200 cities and 34 counties oppose it, it has passed the Senate and is flying through the Assembly and may be on the Governor’s desk by Sept. 13.

The National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy’s survey “Neighborhood Cell Towers & Antennas—Do They Impact a Property’s Desirability?” initiated June 2, 2014, has now been completed by 1,000 respondents as of June 28, 2014. The survey, which circulated online through email and social networking sites, in both the U.S. and abroad, sought to determine if nearby cell towers and antennas, or wireless antennas placed on top of or on the side of a building, would impact a home buyer’s or renter’s interest in a real estate property.
The overwhelming majority of respondents (94%) reported that cell towers and antennas in a neighborhood or on a building would impact interest in a property and the price they would be willing to pay for it.And 79% said under no circumstances would they ever purchase or rent a property within a few blocks of a cell tower or antenna.Source: EMF Real Estate Survey Results: “Neighborhood Cell Towers & Antennas—Do They Impact a Property’s Desirability?” | electromagnetichealth.org
Wireless Small Cell Streamlining Bills Are Moving Coast to Coast Across the USA

There’s a classic brawl raging in the California Legislature between a bankrolling private interest and several toothless local governments over wireless expansion. It’s a fight being waged essentially under the radar. This subject isn’t sexy like a gas-tax increase, universal healthcare or a so-called “sanctuary state” for immigrants here illegally. So it hasn’t gotten much public attention. That’s when special interests tend to win. This battle involves the big telecommunications companies — AT&T, Verizon and the like — trying to push aside local governments and start installing the next generation of wireless infrastructure without pesky interference from city hall or the courthouse.
