U.S.: Tough Iran sanctions near after Russia-China block
Thu Nov 1, 2007 2:56 PM EDT


"Russia and China have been effectively blocking a third resolution since then," he told reporters. Moscow and Beijing, two of the five veto-holders on the Council and both with big trade ties to Iran, have insisted on more time for diplomacy.

Burns arrived in London later and outlined the meeting's agenda. "We have decided we would put together the elements of the third resolution and ministers can decide the timing.

"We do hope Russia and China will come with a serious demeanor and with the basic attitude that progress has to be made (on a resolution). It's time for Russia and China to re-engage...The credibility of the Council is on the line here."

Exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation By Cell Phone

Out of curiosity, I measured the Electromagnetic Field (EMF) intensity generated by my cell phone (Black Berry Curve) using a "Gauss Meter" today. I measured the EMF when the phone is used by itself, when the phone is used using a Bluetooth wireless device and when the phone is used using an earpiece connected to the phone by wire. The following were the results

1. Using the phone by itself to make or receive calls: The Gauss meter went off-scale demonstrating greater than 10 milli-Gauss measurement. Note that a measurement of greater than 7 milli Gauss is shown in "red" indicating dangerous levels of radiation especially when the phone is attached to the ear.

2. Using the phone with a "Bluetooth" wireless earpiece device, shows moderate EMF of about 4-7 milli-Gauss that is indicated as "Yellow" or mild exposure.

3. Using the phone with a "wired" earpiece shows 1-2 milli Gauss that indicated "Green" or safe exposure.

This quick study indicates and verifies that using the cell phone by itself especially for long duration of conversation or frequent times could pose great danger to your nervous system and your brain. Use of a wireless Bluetooth device is considerably safer assuming that the length and frequency of phone calls are in moderation. The best option is to use a "wired" earpiece to use your cell phone. Please note that this is a non scientific study and only my point of view. People's tolerance to EMF may vary person to person, but I felt I should share this information with you as a friend. It is better to be safe than sorry. Please share this with your friends and family as you feel appropriate.

Take care,

Must Watch Video: Dr. George Carlo EMF Cell Phone Dangers Interview


TV Interview with Dr. Carlo (Campbell Live, TV3)
Dr. Carlo talks about the cell phone industry's marketing towards children and the epidemic projections from cell phone use.George Carlo and Martin Schram are aiming to become information-age Ralph Naders. They ask a question that ought to concern America's 103 million mobile phone users, as well as those who merely come within earshot of these popular devices: Is the wireless future a threat to public health? "Visit any public building, college classroom, courthouse, or commuter train, and look around: You'll see people using not just wireless phones but also wireless laptop computers and miniature palm tops," write Carlo and Schram. "What you won't see are the microwaves that are criss-crossing a confined space where a number of people who are not even using these instruments are bombarded by these waves." It sounds creepy. And Carlo, an epidemiologist who once oversaw a multimillion-dollar research project on health for the cellular industry, believes the news is not good: there may be a link between cell phone use and brain tumors. The research is not conclusive, but Carlo and Schram think it's disturbing enough to warrant government action. Needless to say, the industry that once backed Carlo's work now considers him persona non grata.
Due largely to Carlo's coauthorship, Cell Phones is unavoidably a one-sided story. Key business figures didn't agree to interviews. In fact, this might have been a better book if it were written by Schram, with Carlo as one of several major characters rather than a collaborator. Then again, it would lack the passionate advocacy that will draw many readers to it. And even the most skeptical may want to take a few of the simple safety precautions the authors recommend in a concluding chapter, such as wearing a headset or earpiece when using a cell phone, in order to keep a distance from the radiation-emitting antennae. One look at the x-ray photos reproduced in the book, which show how radiation easily penetrates skulls, will give even the most impervious observer second thoughts. One thing is probably certain: This book is a harbinger of litigation. If Carlo and Schram are correct about their concerns, the cellular industry--as unbelievable as it sounds--may go the way of Big Tobacco. --John J. Miller --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly
In 1993, when the cell phone industry's chief lobbyist hired epidemiologist and pathologist Carlo to refute claims that cell phones, which had never been subjected to premarket testing, cause cancer, no one thought he would discover otherwise. But after six years of exhaustive analysis and scrupulous peer review, the results proved, according to this report, that radiation from a cell phone's antenna can cause the formation of micronuclei red flags for cancer in the brain. Children in particular are more susceptible to the radiation than adults. Carlo reported his findings to the industry and the FDA and advocated for continued research, but both parties still maintain that cell phones are safe. Here, Carlo and syndicated columnist Schram retrace Carlo's scientific undertaking and what they cast as a sinister web of corporate greed and masterful PR "spin" that choked his efforts. Schram provides the primary narrative, with Carlo's insights and recollections scattered throughout, a format that grows repetitive. Despite the captivating story, many consumers won't want to slog through the detailed scientific explanations to get to the bottom-line safety recommendations. Journalists, policymakers and consumer advocacy groups, however, will find this no-holds-barred book extraordinarily informative as they continue investigations of the industry. Agent,
Ronald L. Goldfarb.

JOIN NOW Call for General Strike in Iran & Israel to Stop New WAR Plan

FREE Iran Calls for General Strike by all Iranians as the best Option to Stop New War of Madness plan by Islamist Thugocracy Regime, Israel, Saudi Arabia and USA.
Why FREE Iran community disagree with this military option?

No War, No Talk, Support Iranian People to Change Islamist Mafia Thug Regime NOW

FREE Iran Calls for General Strike by all Iranians as the best Option to Stop New War of Madness plan by Islamist Thugocracy Regime, Israel, Saudi Arabia and USA.

Why FREE Iran community disagree with military option?

The Greedy Masters of world are planning to divide Iran to many countries for10% of world copper, Oil, Gas ... in Iran, they are not after Islamist regime change by Iranian people and replacing it with freedom loving Iranian people....
The Islamist Mafia thugs nuclear adventure is in the direction of BP, religious fanatics ... to execute their evil plan ...
Both Military option on the table and talking to the Islamist regime policy was designed to keep the Islamist regime in power as long as possible. They are going to create another big mess in Iran similar to Iraq....
After Eisenhower and JFK the Presidents have become more script driven and not policy makers ... Those who defined the foreign policy of USA in past 40 years behind the scene were not working in the Direction of American People National Interest, they were working in the direction of BP and few other interest groups.....
Any policy which ignores the American People National Interest and Iranian people National Interest will be exposed and rejected.
If the US Generals and US elected officials truly wish to work in the direction of American People long term National Interest for once in past 30 years (Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. Is National Commander of “The Patriots”, US Waking Up Now..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQdCwcHp-0s )
and don't want to create another big Iraqi Islamist mess then they have to listen and consider the third option with following steps:

1) Due to the fact that no Iranian opposition group has financial resources and US government has blockaded over 30 billion dollars of Iranian people money since 30 years ago hostage crisis therefore it is fair that US government accepts the responsibilities to openly setup true transitional leadership fair election among Iranian Americans and Iranians in EU countries to identify the top 9 FREE Iran leaders with highest number of votes who are supporting secular democracy, human rights and regime change in Iran.
2) The election process outside Iran should be approved by 2 key leaders of FREE Iran opposition HM Prince Cyrus Reza Pahlavi and H.I.M Queen Shahbanoo Farah Pahlavi with clean records.
3) Only those Iranian who lived outside Iran and never worked or supported Islamist regime in past 30 years can become candidate for highest transitional FREE Iran leadership positions.
4) After election US government should release over 30 billion dollars of Iranian people money and allow 9 transitional FREE Iran leadership council to spend it for 100,000 Iranian opposition military training and other required regime change actions in Iran in coordination with American Generals.
FREE Iran communities in Iran and outside Iran under Invisible Distributed Decentralized Leadership Model (DDLM) in spirit of Cyrus the Great exist, they are united , strong and can not be deceived by stupid Iraq types of games with hidden agenda ... and as Iranian people had shown in past 1400 years history are ready to fight for another 1000 years at global level to save their motherland against all enemies at very high costs ...
The following 95 petitions is a good example of our strong unity and vision that the many policy makers are blind to see:

No War, No Talk, the best third option:
Support Iranian People to Change Islamist Mafia Thug Regime NOW by releasing over 30 billion dollars fund to top 9 elected FREE Iran leaders outside Iran for Regime Change ….

Warning to current irrational elected officials in Israel who are not wise:
In the past the great majority of FREE Iran community members who are after regime change in Iran, secular democracy, free society ... never interfere in Israel affairs, her differences with Arab neighbors … and wished no harm to freedom loving and peace loving Israeli people … now that for third time possible Israeli attack to Iran is exposed by US former Senior Intel officers and American Generals in recent years then FREE Iran communities prefer Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu step down because we don’t trust him and FREE Iran communities don’t feel safe as long as irrational Prime Minister Netanyahu is in charge….
FREE Iran community appeal to Iranian American Jews, rational American Jews, and peace loving Israeli Secular youth to ACT Now and stop Prime Minister Netanyahu destructive policy and support to be replaced by rational Iranian Israeli General Mofaz or other rational secular peace loving Israelis….
Those irrational people who are ruling in Israel today should be reminded that the great majority of youth in Israel are secular, freedom loving and peace loving people and there are many Iranian Jews who live in Israel and they consider themselves Iranian and son and daughters of Cyrus the Great .... don't make any stupid decision based on pressure from less than 10% irrational Jews, fanatic religious Ultra-Orthodox Jews type who are throwing stones at cars passing to observe Sabbath … or Ultra-Orthodox Jews type who are clashing with Israeli secular women over Immodest dress code … The fanatic Jews in Israel should not assume that the great majority of well educated American Jews who are secular, with brilliant mind are going to support them unconditionally .... Those fanatic Jews and irrational Israeli officials who are dancing for Saudi king today to destroy Iran should be reminded the facts in history that over 1400 years ago Islamist Saudi Arabs killed over 700 innocent Jewish men in one day and raped many Jewish women ...
Recently Saudi King Abdullah Says “Two Countries in the World That Do Not Deserve to Exist: Iran and Israel”…

Bushehr Setbacks Trigger Iranian Nuclear-Safety Concerns

Workers stand in front of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, south of Tehran
March 03, 2011
By Robert Tait
Repeated delays in the opening of a showpiece Iranian nuclear reactor are triggering concerns over Tehran's ability to safely run a civilian nuclear-power plant without the risk of a catastrophic accident, analysts say.

The worries have been provoked by the latest setback to hit the Bushehr plant, where, according to a report published last week on Iran's nuclear activities by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), engineers are being forced to remove 163 fuel rods. Russia's state nuclear energy corporation, Rosatom -- whose scientists have helped to build the plant -- said this week that the action was needed after damage was discovered at one of the reactor's main cooling pumps.

It is the latest in a series of hitches for the reactor, whose construction has cost more than $1 billion.

Analysts have largely ruled out sabotage, in contrast to problems at Iran's uranium-enrichment facility at Natanz, a complex that is widely thought to have been deliberately targeted by a computer virus, Stuxnet, which some experts believe to have been conceived by the United States or Israel in an effort to slow down parts of Iran's nuclear program with the potential to produce a bomb.

Instead, they believe it highlights deficiencies in Iran's capacity to competently operate a plant like Bushehr on its own. Unlike Tehran's uranium-enrichment program, which has been subject to a series of sanctions by the United Nations, the United States, and the European Union, Washington and its Western allies dropped opposition to the Bushehr project after Russia agreed to take back the plant's spent nuclear fuel for reprocessing. That move allayed concerns that Iran might be able to reprocess the material itself into weapons-grade plutonium, a different route to a bomb from enriching uranium.

But David Albright, president of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, warns that inadequate attention to safety at Bushehr has the potential to trigger an accident on the scale of the 1986 disaster at Chornobyl in the former Soviet Union.

"There is a sense that: Is Iran ready? Is it able to have a very highly developed safety culture?" Albright says. "One of the issues, then, is how good is all this equipment? And these recurring media reports, IAEA reports, that there [are] problems there just further undermines confidence that Iran, when it takes over the operation of the reactor from the Russians, will be able to operate safely in the long run."

Not Signing Up To Safety

Technical problems, Albright says, have been caused by the task of trying to graft modern Russian technology onto a much older model originally developed by West Germany, which originally won the contract to build the reactor in the 1970s, years before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

When West Germans abandoned the contract after the revolution, the Bushehr plant stood partially completed for years. It was bombed and badly damaged during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War and its equipment was looted. The project was revived in the 1990s with Russian help but has run into repeated difficulties amid claims from Moscow that Iran was delaying payments.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said Bushehr's problems are "technical"

According to Mark Hibbs, a specialist on Iran's nuclear program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, it is not just that tortured history that is giving cause for concern. More worrying, he says, is Iran's nonparticipation in established international safety conventions.

"Iran has chosen not to cooperate extensively with the outside world in sharing information about the way it will operate the project. Iran is not a member of the International Nuclear Safety Convention. It is the only country in the world which will be operating a power reactor which is outside of this convention," Hibbs says.

"So if there's a concern about Iran it is a concern about the way the Iranians are managing the project and the lack of information the rest of the world will get. Every other nuclear power reactor-operating country in the world is operating on the assumption that the more information is shared internationally, the safer the reactor will become."

The effects of such isolation are compounded, Hibbs fears, by the impact of the sanctions against Tehran's separate uranium-enrichment activities, something the West believes is aimed at building an atomic bomb despite Iran's insistence that it is intended to produce domestic energy.

"One of the problems is the fact that Iran has been developing this project and building the reactors and learning how to operate the reactors when the country has been under sanctions," Hibbs says.

"This is a hidden danger because the sanctions were intended to deprive Iran of the means of developing nuclear weapons. But the sanctions have also indirectly contributed to a loss of safety on the margin of this project. So it may be very difficult in fact to separate the civilian power reactor from activities in the fuel cycle which sanctions were intended to attack."

Speaking in Geneva on March 1, Russia's foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, described the problems at Bushehr as "exclusively" technical and said he expected them to be resolved within three months. "We cannot operate in a way that creates, even if it is hardly likely, any risk," he told a news conference.

Analysts point out that Russia has a powerful vested interest in preventing any future mishaps at Bushehr, since a major disaster would torpedo its highly lucrative goal of becoming a leading exporting of nuclear fuel technology.

Thus, Albright says, fears about Iran's ability to operate the plant safely could act as incentive for Russia to drag its feet over completion.

"What could be happening is [that] the Russians are losing confidence in Iran's ability to operate Bushehr and they don't want to be stuck with the bill, which would be billions of dollars if there's a major accident," Albright says.

"And so they may be thinking that, given the trend lines, maybe we should kind of hedge our bets and delay the start of Bushehr. Because once you start it, it's really traumatic to turn it off. So if you were losing confidence in Iran's ability to run a plant, now's the time when you would act."
