25 Nov 11 Dirty Electricity all Around Us Part 2

Cordless Phones Health Rsks : Blue tube headset : If you want to get a major dose of dirty electricity, use a hair dryer. This device uses up to 500 times more dirty EMR than microwave ovens, electric ranges and washing machines. This past week I also used a GPS device to keep me from getting lost in Boston. It showered me with electrical signals from 2000 satellites in outer space. Most people are not aware of this invisible fog of EMR and its implications on our health. But it’s not fooling wildlife. Birds, bats and bees are known to abandon regions where cell towers are built. Scientists in Russia have been at the forefront of EMR research. During World War II they noticed that radar operators often suffered from symptoms that we now attribute to EMR. And during the height of the cold war they secretly bombarded the US embassy in Moscow with microwave radiation causing radiation sickness in American staff. Later, in 2007, a collaboration of scientists from the US, Sweden, Denmark, Austria and China released a 650 page report citing 2000 studies that detailed the toxic effects of EMR. It concluded that even low level radiation could impair immunity and contribute to Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia and heart disease. Other studies have linked EMR to miscarriage, birth defects, suicide, Lou Gehrig’s and Parkinson Disease. But in addition to these disorders there’s evidence that EMR triggers cancer. In Australia in 1956, when television was

11 Aug 11 “The Rue de Bretagne at 6 pm” Travelingmom’s photos around Paris, France (paris rue de britannia)

Preview of Travelingmom’s blog at TravelPod. Read the full blog here: This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Paris, France Entry Title: “The Rue de Bretagne at 6 pm.” Entry: “The quiet pace on Rue de Bretagne, the food paradise outside our door, changes according to the day of the week or time of day. Sunday morning the shopping is leisurely, people stop and have long lunches at the market, schmooze on the street with their neighbors, or stroll and window-shop. Most of the stores close by 2pm, so the rest of the day, the shops are shuttered. Sunday is also a family day, so kids are holding on to their parents hands negotiating the street, and strollers abound. On Sundays, there are always long and silent lines outside the doors of the bakery, often to the chagrin of the chocalatier next door when people line up across her doorstep. The Italian and Greek charcuteries do steady business. On weekday mornings, the pace on Rue de Bretagne is businesslike. People go about their shopping, dropping off their cleaning, and chat with the butcher, the fishmonger and vegetable shopkeeper. Most of the food shops close up so the owners can go to lunch. So by lunchtime, you’re out of luck if you need to buy food. (Well, the grocery stores do remains open.) But at 6pm every evening, the pace on Rue de Bretagne is frenetic. The streets are dark but every store is lit, brightening the offerings. While some of

Remember the days when refrigerators were new and the talk of the town while children were captivated by its shear wonder? Neither do we, but we assume it happened at some point in American history. WARNING: James’ nipple appears in this film.

31 Jul 11 “Shanxi – Life On A Bus (Part 2 Of 3)” Emilywemhoff’s photos around Shanxi , China

Preview of Emilywemhoff’s blog at TravelPod. Read the full blog here: This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Shanxi , China Entry Title: “Shanxi – Life On A Bus (Part 2 Of 3)” Entry: “Saturday was the best day of our trip to Shanxi. We woke up really early and ate breakfast, which isn’t much. Breakfast here basically consists of a tasteless wheat soup, some cucumber dish that doesn’t look appetizing and warm milk. China has some ordeal against serving any type of cold beverages. In stores, they put bottles of juice and soda in refrigerators, but the refrigerators aren’t turned on. They serve warm milk, which I always stay away from in order to prevent myself from getting sick. I consider it my lucky day if I find a place that has cold bottles of water or serves cold soda. But anyway, back to breakfast. One of the first things I request when I return home is a real American breakfast complete with pancakes, bacon, eggs, toast and a big glass of COLD orange juice. (Mom I know you are reading this blog….take note of my request.) After a so called “breakfast”, we boarded the bus again for another five hours to the ancient city of Pingyao. Someone must have said something to our bus driver because I could tell he was driving more carefully. Again we stopped along the way to use the restrooms and once again I failed at using the squatty potty. I don’t know why, but it was so frustrating that I

29 Jul 11 “Garbage Town and Ancient Town” Canaussie’s photos around Naples, Italy (ancient naples italy)

Preview of Canaussie’s blog at TravelPod. Read the full blog here: This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Naples, Italy Entry Title: “Garbage Town and Ancient Town” Entry: “So I will begin this entry by stating that we have reached the stage in our travels where we are constantly “huffing” it. We huff it from one city to another, we huff it within cities, we huff it we huff it. The benefit of always huffing it with backpacks is sore legs and abs, which equals a natural workout to counterbalance all the new food and pastries being eaten. We began our huffing upon leaving Istanbul, and this is the short version of our mad, non-stop, three day journey: – We took the overnight train from Istanbul to Thessaloniki, wow was it nice, and we had a washbasin! I know, I know, we’re easily pleased now, but a personal washbasin is such a luxury. Enough about that, you don’t care – Having chosen to no longer visit Greece (better in summer with more funds!) we huffed it through Greece to Patras to catch the ferry to Bari, Italy – Wow, what a ferry! Akin to a small cruise ship, we were shocked, we expected **** wood seats, but no, we got beds and restaurants and bars and a “disco” (it is Italy after all) and a reception and all that fluffy stuff. Included in our Eurail pass, yessssssss! – Huffed it from Bari to Naples by train! So, four trains, three days, and one ferry later we arrived in Naples

14 May 11 “Last minute fun” Bethpelletier’s photos around Port Campbell, Australia

Preview of Bethpelletier’s blog at TravelPod. Read the full blog here: This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Port Campbell, Australia Entry Title: “Last minute fun” Entry: “Today is my last full day in Melbourne and a wonderful time for some reflection of the last four months. Just thinking about it makes me happy since I’ve had such a truly wonderful time here. I’ve met artistic, interesting people and enjoyed sharing experiences, stories, and knowledge about who we are and what the world is, or can be. I’m very pleased with the amount of things I’ve done in Victoria while here, and my to-do-list proves this. Quick recap, because it’s fun to reminisce- Dandenong Mountain ranges, Yarra Valley, Meredith music festival, Grampian Mountain ranges, Mornington Peninsula, The Great Ocean road and all the towns along the way, surfed a couple times, Cricket game at the MCG, several museums, mastered the CBD (downtown), not to mention living in an amazing house in the hippest neighborhood in town with some genuine flatmates that I much appreciated, read about 13 books on beaches/balcony/parks, went to the beach as much as possible, and held down a couple jobs. I knew pretty much from the beginning that I wanted to spend a good amount of time in Melbourne and I think that was a super smart decision on my part. This is a world class city and I don’t doubt for a second one of the most liveable places in

Entry from: Kathmandu, Nepal Entry Title: “Entering beautiful Nepal” Entry: “Well we finally left “the top of the world” Tibet and entered Nepal after a three hour wait to go thro’ immigrations!!!! What a completetransformation from the barren desert bowl of Tibet and her mountains and into a lush green Alpine environment completewith waterfalls and other flora and fauna…. The border crossing into Nepal was a quick affair much to our relief!!! we then caught a public bus to Kathmandu, a whirlwind journey (of nine hours total!!! The bit they don’t ever tell you before you do it) and our travelling companion from Tibet Jean Francois, bobbing about on top of the bus like a big kid!!! We arrived in Kathamandu finally in the evening and our first sighting was a city of lights as we entered civillisation at long last!!! Left Kathmandu for Pokhora. A beautiful journey throughout the mountains passing by little villages en route. We spent the first evening eating by a beautiful lake and being entertained by traditional dancing girls (which Martin enjoyed very much as you can imagine!!). From here we left for Nayapul and began the first stages of our trek walking alongside the Modi river in a flat part of the valley, a relatively gentle introduction into trekking in Nepal with some ascending later on
