Our culture of convenience is killing us. If the stress of buying and replacing an endless array of gadgets isn’t harsh enough, our addiction to appliances unheard of only a few decades ago is propelling us toward mass misery, death and health care cost calamity on a scale not seen since cars and cigarettes became as personally essential as all the consumer crazes that followed. Like Big Tobacco’s cynical cover-up, the conspiracy of silence and corporate-government complicity surrounding cell phones, cell phone relay towers, microwave ovens and the "wireless revolution" is unleashing an invisible plague upon our lives. 
In January 2002, President George W. Bush launched the USA Freedom Corps to promote volunteer service opportunities within the United States and abroad.

Citizen Corps, a component of USA Freedom Corps, was developed to help coordinate such volunteer activities and to increase the capacity of American communities to respond to any emergency situation. The program's goal is to provide opportunities for people to participate in a range of measures to make their families, their homes, ...

“I’m willing to believe anything if I can keep company with you,” I ventured, craning my neck to scope out a place that seemed to combine home, cathedral and art museum on a gargantuan scale. But my flippant flirtation fell flat. Brusquely gesturing for me to follow, my guide informed me over her shoulder: “It doesn’t work that way.” Gliding ahead with a desert gait I’d admired during my service with the Gulf Environmental Emergency Response Team, she dropped one of her diaphanous veils every few meters. My breath quickened with each cast-off illusion. But the seventh and last veil stayed stubbornly in place. Obviously, I did ... market research, surveys and trends


ANTIPHONY: A style of chanting involving a call and response. Since billions of people are called to cell and portable phones every day – and most will be chosen to conduct the biggest biological experiment ever undertaken on this planet – perhaps some responses to this mass culture of addiction and denial are in order. Did someone say “addiction”? “In January 2001 alone, over 900 million text messages were sent in the UK.” [BBC May 24/01] “This text messaging train just keeps on running on its tracks. We reached $80 billion worth of revenues out of mobile phone simple SMS text messaging ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Commissioners: Local response team needed for well emergencies
CLEARFIELD - While investigations continue into the cause of the blowout from a natural gas well Friday, the Clearfield County Commissioners are encouraging the formation of a local gas well emergency response team.

"They were unable to land in DuBois so they had to fly to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Transportation departments, health care professionals, schools, government agencies, and corporate offices all have emergency response teams in place to respond to major incidents, in order to protect peoples' safety, particularly after 9/11. Hazmat trained responders are available to address hazardous materials. In a world where we're having to prepare for terrorist attacks, it's idiotic to consider that BP failed to have a plan in place to protect their assets. Guess they were too focused on making money. posted 9 days ago Program Manager, Worldwide Logistics Support Services (WLSS) at Siemens Government Services
