Current efforts by the industry to roll out 5G cellular networks across the US heightened the interest in TUC radio programs. Especially what medical Doctor Devra Davis reported regarding tests commissioned by the Chicago Tribune in August 2019. Results showed that radio-frequency radiation exposure from the most popular smartphones measured higher than the legal safety limit. The way most users carry smartphones on their bodies and hold them close to their skull when they talk sends more radio-frequency radiation into their bodies than they know. What this may mean for our children is addressed by Katie Singer at the beginning of this talk. She also lists the most energy demanding parts of the internet and how much embodied energy exists in all aspects of production and distribution. Katie Singer is the author of An Electronic Silent Spring, Facing the Dangers and Creating Safe Limits; and the forthcomingOur Web of Inconvenient Truths: The Internet, Energy Use, Toxic Waste and Climate Change - How on Earth Do We Shrink the Internets Footprint? She was interviewed at the Jan 25 to Feb. 3, 2019, conference of the the HIPPOCRATES HEALTH INSTITUTE by Ben Zeitlin. In 2015 Katie Singer gave a talk at the Colorado Chautauqua in Boulder. She opened with a memorable account on how human beings, like all living beings including plants function by electro chemical signals. Even at rest all cells have measurable voltage. Ever since the beginning of the electric power grid about 140 years ago, we have nearly saturated our environment with electrical and magnetic frequency fields and amplitudes that do not exist in nature. With 5G the industry is planning to exponentially increase the exposure. Are we overpowering our innate life giving electro chemical signals that keep our heart pumping and our brains functioning with these new frequency fields? This program closes with a brief excerpt of Katie Singer talk in Boulder in April, 2015.

In her new film, The Edge of Democracy, director Petra Costa tells the story of how Brazil went from a rising star among free nations to a democracy on the verge of collapse. With unprecedented access, Costa documents the rise and fall of Brazils Workers Party and its charismatic leader Lula da Silva, the impeachment of Brazils first female president, Dilma Rousseff, and the rise of President Jair Bolsonaro who has ushered in, as Costa puts it, a new era of rule by the bible, the bullet, and the banks. In this very personal conversation, Laura and Petra discuss life and politics in the U.S. and Brazil'nations built on land theft, genocide, and extraction. They wonder if democracy can survive in states that fail to reckon with their pasts. Baiana (A Girl Born in Bahia) by Gaby Hernandez from her album Spirit Reflection courtesy of Mr. Bongo Records.
