What people don't know is the non thermal bio effects of microwave radiation are classified but plenty of studies and literature exist proving microwaves harm DNA, activate voltage gated calcium channels causing release of calcium in cells and numerous health problems, cancer more than triples with exposure, and more.

She is considered an expert, and doesn't take the reduced payment of insurance plans, and also protects her clients privacy .. her medical records must be reported to the insurance company, but not during private pay cases.

These are the typical reasons doctors refuse to take insurance.

No, she is paid because she isn't a noob like the other doctors. Therefore she refuses to take insurance because the insurance pays less than the doctors hourly rate, and insurance overloads a doctor with too many dime a dozen patients. Next up she is unlike other doctors in that they are closed minded, limited scope, and limited training jumping to conclusions and selling specific treatments that are actually very harmful for people. She identifies as open minded, unbiased, and capable of working with any patient.

You pay for quality. There are many doctors like her. And most expert witnesses like her, the best ones anyway, don't take insurance.

The attorneys have nothing in the record to indicate the military uses electrical weapons.

But the military has all sorts of electrical weapons, from hologram projectors, satellites, acoustic, electromagntic, interferometry, radar, electronic warfare, and many types of purely stun gun based and electrifying systems. The military can even create lighting bolts wherever they want.

This document lists many of these types of non lethal weapons. Title: non lethal weapons, terms and references.

The military keeps all this information classified so the best information is not even available, so of course the lawyers couldn't have the info to add to the record.


Here is a sample set of weapons, not even including the section on electricals.
Hologram weapons:

Hologram, Death. Hologram used to scare a target individual to death. Example, a drug lord with a weak heart sees the ghost of his dead rival appearing at his bedside and dies of fright [149:4].
Hologram, Prophet. The projection of the image of an ancient god over an enemy capitol whose public communications have been seized and used against it in a massive psychological operation [609].
Hologram, Soldiers-Forces. The projection of soldier-force images which make an opponent think more allied forces exist than actually do, make an opponent believe that allied forces are located in a region where none actually exist, and/or provide false targets for his weapons to fire upon. New concept developed in this document.

Electromagnetic weapons, with ideas of their potential to hurt and target humans:

Electromagnetic, Engine Kill. The use of high-powered microwaves to kill the electrical system of an engine.
Electromagnetic, High Power Microwave [HPM], Weapons. Energy generated by a conventional electromagnetic apparatus, such as a radar transmitter, or released from a conventional explosion converted into a radio- frequency weapon which causes the disruption of electronic systems. Usually an ultra-wide ban source focus due to target vulnerability considerations. HPMs can also cause human unconsciousness without permanent maiming by upsetting the neural pathways in the brain and/or death [256,278].
Electromagnetic, Interference (EMI). Flight control systems of military aircraft are sensitive to electromagnetic interference (EMI). It is suspected that several crashes of Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters may have resulted when they flew too near large microwave transmitters [278].
Electromagnetic, Maser. Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A microwave generation device.
Electromagnetic Pulse, Non-Nuclear [NNEMP], Weapons. Non-nuclear EMP generating weapons mounted on cruise missiles or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) which would disable enemy tanks and early warning radars would be invaluable. Such weapons when they explode would produce a momentary burst of microwaves powerful enough to disable all but special, radiation-hardened electronic devices [205,261,262].
Electromagnetic, Radio Frequency [RF], Weapons. A class of weapons which transmit short, high-powered pulses of electromagnetic radiation over significant ranges [278].
Electromagnetic, Rocket-Powered Unit. Unmanned miniature-wheeled vehicle launched by a police cruiser which delivers an electromagnetic energy pulse to the underside of a fleeing car's engine controls and associated sensors to disable it [644:4].
Electromagnetic, Static Unit. See Electromagnetic, Rocket-Powered Unit. Static version resembling a pancake shaped bump in the road. Remote control or unmanned automatic control [644:4].
Electromagnetic, Thermal Gun. A device that directs energy to produce heat, in concept similar to a microwave oven [565].

Acoustic weapons, with ideas of their potential to hurt and target humans:

Acoustic Beam. High power, very low frequency beam emitted from weaponry under development. Envisioned to be a piston-driven or detonation- driven pulser which forces compressed air into tubes to generate a low frequency wave [543,546].
Acoustic, Blast Wave, Projector. Energy generation from a pulsed laser that will project a hot, high pressure plasma in the air in front of a target. It creates a blast wave with variable but controlled effects on hardware and troops [543].
Acoustic Bullets. High power, very low frequency waves emitted from one to two meter antenna dishes. Results in blunt object trauma from waves generated in front of the target. Effects range from discomfort to death. A Russian device that can propel a 10-hertz sonic bullet the size of a baseball hundreds of yards is thought to exist. Proposed fixed site defense [16,113,212,543]. Also known as sonic bullets.
Acoustic, Curdler Unit. A device which is plugged into an HPS-1 sound system to produce a shrill shrieking, blatting noise. It is used to irritate and disperse rioters and had a decibel range just below that of the danger level to the human ear. It is used in night operations to produce a "voodoo" effect and effectively breaks up chanting, singing and clapping [2:279- 280,82:184,84,529].
Acoustic, Deference Tones. Devices which can project a voice or other sound to a particular location. The resulting sound can only be heard at that location [176:86].
Acoustic, Doppler Effect Alarm. Any movement in the area between a transmitter and a receiver causes a slight variation in the sound pattern received. By measuring this variation an alarm system can be made to be activated [23:204].
Acoustic, High Intensity Sound. Loud music was used by American forces to drive Manual Norriega from the Vatican Embassy in Panama in 1990. Also known as polysound [354:45].
Acoustic, HPS-1 Sound System. A 350 watt sound system with an audible voice range of 2 1/2 miles. Used by the military in Indo-China and then supplied to law enforcement. First used by police forces at San Francisco State College and at Berkeley in the 1960s [2:277-279,82,84]. See also Acoustic, Curdler Unit.
Acoustic, Infrasound. Very low-frequency sound which can travel long distances and easily penetrate most buildings and vehicles. Transmission of long wavelength sound creates biophysical effects; nausea, loss of bowels, disorientation, vomiting, potential internal organ damage or death may occur. Superior to ultrasound because it is "in band" meaning that its does not lose its properties when it changes mediums such as from air to tissue. By 1972 an infrasound generator had been built in France which generated waves at 7 hertz. When activated it made the people in range sick for hours [23,302,546].
Acoustic, Squawk Box. Crowd dispersal weapon field tested by the British Army in Ireland in 1973. This directional device emits two ultrasonic frequencies which when mixed in the human ear become intolerable. It produces giddiness, nausea or fainting. The beam is so small that is can be directed at specific individuals in a riot situation [451,452,504].
Acoustic, Teleshot. Cartridge projecting a powerful sonic device delivered by a 12-gauge shotgun. Experimental use in 1972 [529].
Acoustic, Ultrasound. A very high frequency sound whose wavelength is "out of band" making it less effective than infrasound because it losses its properties when it changes mediums. Example, from air to human tissue. Like infrasound a lot of power is required to generate these waves which create biophysical effects. See also Acoustic, Infrasound


I think the courts attempted interpretation of the law is highly flawed. The language of the 2nd amendment indicates, citizens rights to bear arms shall not be infringed. Arms means weapons. It is not limited to only what may be useful or applicable to use in the military.

Pretty much any online storage, ftp, ssh company can encrypt stuff. Just run it through an encryption tool before upload. I do that with ssh and ftp, simply pipe it through to the encryption software (which could be like 7zip, or zip if thats your thing, or any other software encryption tool) then pipe that to the ftp ssh scp, etc.

If I am not mistaken Nero Back It Up will encrypt and then ftp or upload its back ups for you as well.

Another service is idrive, for $14 for the first year you get 1TB with their best promotion.

They let you use a private key for encryption - one that is kept hidden from their online service. Idrive is one of the largest online back up providers, seems funny they weren't mentioned as having a solution.

Comment Microsoft beat Google to the punch (Score 0) 141

Microsoft has their Lumia 635 or 640. Feat. 1280x720 res. Quad core. 1GB ram. WiFi. GPS. LTE. 8GB flash. Camera.

Cost was $99 then $63 last winter. Now the device costs $40 dollars from some sources, such as Metro PCS.

Metro PCS also has several android devices selling for $50.

My understanding is some carriers are jacking up the prices on devices so some of these devices cost $120 or more elsewhere.

Comment Java is valuable (Score 0, Interesting) 457

Java was partly ruined by Microsoft before. Microsoft built in a ton of features to Java, included it in their OS, binaries no longer ran on competing OS; legal battle ensues, Microsoft found to committed wrong, Sun takes over the market for Windows Java virtual machine but not before the thriving market for web based Java games and apps was destroyed.

Java never really recovered after that.

Microsoft later invented .NET as a competing Microsoft owned Java style system.

Later enters the color cellphone/flip phone/camera phone market, Java VM was integrated into most cell phones and a Java app market starts.

Java makes a come back with some misc Java apps like BitTorrent clients being created bringing Java back to Windows, for awhile anyway.

Java gets adopted into blu-ray video spec, a major win, perhaps one of the biggest uses of Java for all time.

Android was invented stealing Java from Sun, rather than integrating Java from the official source they took all its features and made their own implementation but which was incompatible with Java. This destroyed Java in the mobile realm. This possibly helped lead to the final nail in the coffin along with html5, as Java is no longer useful at all for web apps or part of the OS for mobile apps.

If Java was part of Android, it would create a market to easily port the apps to other platforms and more developers might have considered designing software apps that ran on other systems using Java. Java's prominents would have made it relevent, as equal to Flash or more..

Yep Microsoft AND Google both fucked Java in big ways.

I still remember when the Java applet was a big thing back in the year 1999 / 2000. All web based games, Java chat, etc were Java. It was the most powerful platform of its day, allowing full apps with unlimited power to run in the browser, or desktop, of any machine regardless of architecture or make/model capable of running Java. This all went away when the legal battle between Sun and MS went down, although some Java apps remained in use for along time in places such as Yahoo Games or the occasional bandwidth speedtest.

Besides Yahoo Games and Java speedtest, Java apparently not to be used much in the consumer realm.

Java's performance and feature set was superior for many things. It provided the best speedtest for example. :)


Comment Changes in DMCA need to happen (Score 0) 272

The way providers respond to DMCA needs to change. Essentially a DMCA take down notice does not ensure the claim is valid. And two, there is no actual need to respond to it, other than for the provider to inquery with the user who owns and uploaded the content. If the user hosting the content disagrees that they should take their content down, they are legally allowed to keep it online. The dmca take down notice filer then has to utilize due process, the courts to sue the person if they truly believe they were right to keep the content online.

The hoster does not need to take action on dmca take downs besides passing the notice to the user to reject or comply with. Its the law. So we should be asking why providers are actually taking down the content before giving people a chance to screen the claim, and to make determination if they in fact are legally using the content.

In the interest of due process there are also many exceptions that ensure fair use and 1st amendment rights which trump copyright and trademark. This ensures a persons right to have the issue brought to trial, if the company or person trying to take the content offline wants to invest in the issue.


Comment Re:Full Price Smartphones (Score 0) 155

There happens to be a decent market for cheap smartphones.

For example the Microsoft Lumia 635 or 640, has a full array of features such as quad core and LTE for $30 bucks at most carriers. No contract required.

For $99 bucks there is the ZTE ZMAX, a substantial upgrade from the Lumia, getting you a 1080p 5.7" screen with quad cores under the hood and 2GB RAM. Damn near the cheapest decent android phone around. There's also the LG Leon and stylo but I haven't held or tested either personally, ..

For unlocked phones there's the ASUS ZenFone2 for $199 on Amazon. Or the Firephone from Amazon, which regularly goes on sale for $99-$150.

OnePlus One/Two cost $200-$300 and are both decent.

Cheapest full priced flagships goes to LG. The Flex2 and G4 cost under $480 at T Mobile and Sprint.

Apple and Samsung are the only ones still believing their pathetic $200 devices are worth $700-$900.

Its my personal belief that the $700-$900 phone market is there because of price fixing and it also serves to help lock customers down like a contract would. Because if you try to cancel service, suddenly the remaining cost of the device becomes due, and the devices have little resale value, a significant deterant preventing many customers from disconnecting or switching carriers as they please. The only reason they can now collect $700-$900 for a device, is the payment plans, otherwise no one would ever go for it. It does seem like we are getting scammed with the new model, into paying double and triple what we used to, prices have only risen. Buggest scam of the century!

Meanwhile there are the unlocked devices and high end tablet market, devices with the same components as the overpriced cellphones, selling between $150-$300.

I think it will be used for much more than encryption breaking. Probably full scale artificial intelligence and automation of operating surveillance and weapons platforms without need for human control panel operators.

Encryption is secretly breakable a number of ways already including by use of brainwave reading radar to snatch passwords and interferometry to snatch encryption certificates directly from RAM, hard disks, etc.

The air gap is the last protected and classified front.

Patented techniques, too.

They also need computers to run advanced physics simulations and automate new technology development, ie AI.

Computers are smarter and faster than humans at building things.

So what is wrong with the first lazy slob coming along and copying it?

I just don't see why book writers won't continue to write books but do it for free or little return.

I also believe in ditching capitolism entirely and moving to pure communism. The kind where there is no money or class system, and everyone works for free but also gets everything provided for free such as housing, food, education, healthcare, clothes, transportation, and everyone gets the same amount of it.

Pure communism has never existed but it is the best most advanced form of socialism. And better than capitolism. Capitolism is an enslavement system, where people with egos get to think and live that "we are better than everyone else" when they really aren't better than anyone.

All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
