at Yesterday’s article about Paul Bruder (Asbestos, cancer chemicals, ozone depletion, microwaves, power lines), we looked at the demise of investigative journalism in the mainstream media.
The issue is not only that the mainstream press”It can itself become a captive of the scientific and technological elite. As Eisenhower warned. The case is more subtle. The public doesn’t know that New York times They Read Today is not the same newspaper that reported on Nestlé’s unethical sales tactics when selling infant formula to poor mothers in poor countries. The public hates to admit that the mainstream media is now a business partner of the scientific and corporate/communication elite.
The “tin hat”, “conspiracy theorist” and “arsonist” strategies have been very successful in marginalizing those who express concern about wireless technology.
Many spoke of the frustration caused by the press impersonating balanced reporting in the wireless domain, by pretending to “tell both sides of the story”. Industry-specific narratives are often given higher word count, higher headline and higher billing. Perspective that goes against the dominant narrative is marginalized in tone and content. This leaves the reader with the false impression that there is doubt about the possibility of adverse effects. Doubt is a product Cigarette horn and the defense industry product. This form of reporting misleads the public about legitimate evidence of harm. Thus the media themselves play a role in manipulating public sentiment, glossing over and even exposing wrongdoing in the industry. “Doubt is their product” prevail.
Fortunately, many loyal and brave individuals play a role in the face of the worn, inaccurate, and corrupt narrative.

WCCA Worcester Community Cable Access is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates cable television for public access in Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1986, Mauro DePasquale has been CEO since 1990. The WCCA has performed miracles in the iconic building on Main Street in Worcester (the second most populous city in Massachusetts). The multiracial community is well represented at WCCA, and the station’s shows are a mainstay in the lives of many residents. (WCCA Innovative Community Cable Show Watching new sounds Featured competitors are now appearing in both “American Idol” and “The Voice”).
Before smart meters arrived in Worcester, Mauro was somewhat concerned about wireless security. But when the National Grid came into town with the largest and most expensive smart meter pilot program in the country, without the knowledge and approval of the community, he noted, “People were getting affected, and they needed a place where they could be heard.” The Tori Fort District Ground zero, National Grid made a large-scale expansion of a small adjacent substation, with plans to add a 90-foot tower and five antennas that is a lower area, adjacent to the bedroom windows. Losing property values was just one of many concerns. The fact that city leadership was strongly supporting the program, including the resident, the health department, the mayor, and a number of city advisors, in partnership with district colleges, without input from residents, was another.
Mauro noted, “We felt the need to have a platform that would bring other voices to the negotiating table. It felt as if the community was being cut down by the big corporations. Residents and adjacent were excluded from the process, and there was no news coverage of those on the front lines.”
The smart meter pilot program was an automatic registration design. No knowledge and consent is provided; 15,000 homes and businesses received a new two-way counter and were assigned a default billing plan if they did not take action to choose from several options. The pilot who went over budget and late for schedule, not to study smart meters, but to justify smart meters, and it violated many sound research design principles, which were enabled by the regulator (Public Utilities Department)
The pilot was behind schedule because many residents chose to withdraw after learning late about the program. . . And the WCCA receives a lot of credit for providing more than 6,000 home and business options for deciding that they want to move out.
At first, those who are interested in smart meters appeared as guests at current shows with many esteemed hosts, including Mauro’s “Soapbox”. In the end, the WCCA hosted what might be the first A local TV show dedicated exclusively to the issue of the smart meter. Some shows were rebroadcasts of information from the Internet about smart meters, as many city dwellers did not have access to a computer, and the cable station was the only place to learn about problems, including health risks, privacy, monitoring and cost, firesSafety and green washing.
The station-produced premiere featured a number of residents, including Leslie Sapphire, who co-formed the group WITH Worcester Info Team for Health with the late. Lance McKee. They’ve also worked with John Provost of Worcester Opts Out. The unlikely pairing of smoking, outspoken, charismatic Republican Tea Party member Claire Donegan and shy left-leaning yoga teacher Patricia Burke were the driving forces behind the cable show. Their partnership reflected a national orientation; There were many reasons to oppose the meter, regardless of political affiliation.
Activists went door to door in a neighborhood dotted with counters, finding that most residents had no idea what was going on. Obviously, language was a barrier for some families.
Some have noted that big technology and government are becoming increasingly intertwined, some reflecting that the city was essentially “occupied” during the experiment. This included the presence of the Sustainability Center, nicknamed the “publicity pub,” staffed by area college students who were assigned to wear the face of the instrument in the community.
Although some media outlets reported on the controversies early on, they eventually stopped covering the “little people” perspective, with the exception of the WCCA.
Community cable television is not funded by tax revenue, but is supported by viewer donations and cable franchise fees. Under former President Trump’s Ajit Pai, the FCC tried to pull the rug out from under the community cable. As reported by ArsTechnica, “The FCC has been sued by dozens of cities after voting to repeal local fees and rules, and cities are defying the FCC’s vote to preempt local fees and broadband regulations.”
Nearby Leominster has a state-of-the-art community cable facility, while Worcester controls WCCA money chains by paying only a portion of the fees collected to the station. But Mauro the Renaissance man – father, grandfather, public servant, jazz musician – continues his efforts as a true public servant and a champion of freedom of speech (along with his able and devoted employees). It continues to cover the wireless issue in a comprehensive and responsive manner, and provides a platform for First Amendment rights and “little people”.
David Charalambos “I will look into any further evidence to corroborate the opinion I have already made.” Lord Molson
David Charalambous brings his counseling and health background to the challenge of finding effective ways to communicate about questioning prevailing paradigms.
He doesn’t just look at what or what is connected توصيل To facilitate societal change. He looked at How It is served, through marketing machines promoting the 5G network and the growing expansion of communications, and through activists trying to reach audiences firmly rooted in assumptions and belief systems.
He notes that “much of what has been tried does not work; the public does not think. Facts do not change people’s minds, they do not listen to science.”
Regarding how activists communicate their concerns to others, David notes, “If you are upset with the person talking on their cell phone, you have already lost the battle. If the person sees you as an opponent, they will never listen to you. It activates their defenses and they can’t hear you.”
David likens the activity to trying to throw a tennis ball into the room. If the door is closed, you will keep hitting the door. Some people think the solution is to try to throw the ball a little harder. The solution is to open the door. This translates to communication in a way that does not provoke the other person’s defenses.
David incorporated the principles outlined by Donna Hicks in her book dignity: “Don’t be a violator of dignity.” He also studied the corresponding technique. Participates in the toolbox including emotional freedom technique Tapping to help activists release difficult emotions. For example, many individuals face bullying by groups of industry trolls working in a coordinated manner to intimidate and neutralize online activity. “They have a toolbox. They attack the messenger rather than offering any security science; for example, by calling the person a ‘conspiracy theorist from the Flat Earth Society.’ The CIA has honed critical attack strategies for decades.
(Recently, opponents of 5G have been widely portrayed as arsonists, and thus homegrown terrorists, although there is no evidence linking existing groups to tower fire reports.)
An activist, when fired, cannot communicate effectively. The audience, when turned on, cannot assimilate new information. David’s insights help activists maintain self-mastery, and increase the vibration of their interactions. The industry is armed with trained opponents; Activists can also develop a skill set. David distills knowledge into understandable tools and strategies.
Getting to “I want to go away and think about this”
“It’s like throwing a stone into stagnant water…and watching the ripples. You want to drop an idea into someone’s consciousness, and let them see something in a different way. If you push the person, see them as an obstacle, or try to change the other person, that activates His defenses. Emotional intelligence is key.” It’s about maintaining a high vibration of the breath, no matter what comes to you.
David prefers to use metaphors as a way to help people see that they have been “vaccinated” from listening to the people involved.
“You’re trying to help them identify a perception error on their own.”
On the industry side of the equation, David and his colleagues worked to design industry messaging. He explains, “It’s like suddenly seeing the scaffolding…and then losing its power on you. Its power is no longer unconscious.”
The Mindspace The document is an example of a primer designed to assist decision makers in influencing behavior through public policy.
“The industry has done an amazing job persuading the public that they are ‘on the same side.’ Studies show that we don’t hold to our beliefs based on facts, nor are we aware of them. This is known as the illusion of explanatory depth. Studies also show that we tend to listen to people within our group rather than the person who He makes the best argument.”
David studied under Paul checkAnd he has a fondness for Zayn in the tradition of Alan Watts. “It is not our duty to change someone, but we can be the starting point. It is the state in which we communicate of lack of attachment and grace, rather than anger, fear and anxiety, that allows people to feel that we are on their side.”
Be on the right side of history.
