The present pause in the march towards the creation of the new political European entity Euroland, consequence of the approaching European elections, which virtually put the entire communitarian system on stand-by, enable us to dedicate this lead article of our April newsletter to an abnormality in the handling of the evolution of Euroland : How is it possible that a member states of the European Union, which is not a member of the Eurozone, has such a disproportionate clout on the institutions where the coming of age of Euroland is being masterminded and prepared?

Newropeans Magazine

31st March, 2014

This crisis is well and truly a test of national leaders’ ability to grasp the tools of independence, power and peace that their fathers (the generations of politicians which ruled right until the end of the 80s basically) have put at their disposal, this united and institutionalized Europe which only remains to be put under political control.…

Dollar hegemony under attack by export-superpowers Germany and China

29th March, 2014

The word dollar didn’t even come up. “The volume of transactions that can be carried out in the Chinese currency in international and German financial centers is not commensurate with China’s importance in the global economy,” the Bundesbank explained in its dry manner on Friday in Berlin, after signing a memorandum of understanding with the People’s Bank of China. President Xi Jinping and Chancellor Angela Merkel were looking on. It was serious business. Everyone knew what this was about. No one had to say it.

Possible effects of electromagnetic fields from phone masts on a population of white stork (Ciconia ciconia)

Living Planet

Monitoring of a white stork population in Valladolid (Spain) in the vicinity of Cellular Phone Base Stations was carried out, with the objective of detecting possible effects. The total productivity, in the nests located within 200meters of antennae, was 0􏰀86±0􏰀16. For those located further than 300m, the result was practically doubled, with an average of 1􏰀6±0􏰀14. Very significant differences among the total productivity were found (U = 240􏰁 p = 0􏰀001, Mann-Whitney test). In partial productivity, an average of 1􏰀44 ± 0􏰀16 was obtained for the first group (within 200m of antennae) and of 1􏰀65±0􏰀13 for the second (further than 300m of antennae), respectively. The difference between both groups of nests in this case were not statistically significant (U = 216􏰁 P = 0􏰀26, Mann-Whitney Test U). Twelve nests (40%) located within than 200m of antennae never had chicks, while only one (3.3%) located further than 300m had no chicks. The electric field intensity was higher on nests within 200m (2􏰀36±0􏰀82V/m) than on nests further than 300m (0􏰀53 ± 0􏰀82 V/m). Interesting behavioral observations of the white stork nesting sites located within 100m of one or several cellsite antennae were carried out. These results are compatible with the possibility that microwaves are interfering with the reproduction of white storks and would corroborate the results of laboratory research by other authors.

Official US government report finds EM radiation threat to birds

Posted by seumasach on March 30, 2014

30th March, 2014

Citing studies by distinguished Spanish scientist, Alfonso Balmori, a letter from US department of Interior admits impact of EM radiation on birds:

“The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from non- ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by these structures. Radiation studies at cellular communication towers were begun circa 2000 in Europe and continue today on wild nesting birds. Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007). Nesting migratory birds and their offspring have apparently been affected by the radiation from cellular phone towers in the 900 and 1800 MHz frequency ranges- 915 MHz is the standard cellular phone frequency used in the United States.”
