jpg

The truth about mobile phone and wireless radiation: what we know, what we need to find out, and what you can do now. Duration: 1:01:29.

Lecture presented at The University of Melbourne by Dr. Devra Davis, Visiting Professor of Medicine at the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School, and Visiting Professor of Medicine at Ondokuz Mayis University, Turkey.

The Lecture

What are the health effects of mobile phones and wireless radiation? While Australia has led the world in safety standards, including compulsory seat-belt legislation, plain packaging on cigarettes, and product and food disclosure legislation, it falls behind in addressing the significant issues associated with mobile phone use. In this Dean’s Lecture, epidemiologist and electromagnetic radiation expert, Dr. Devra Davis, will outline the evolution of the mobile phone and smartphone, and provide a background to the current 19 year old radiation safety standards (SAR), policy developments and international legislation. New global studies on the health consequences of mobile/wireless radiation will be presented, including children’s exposure and risks.

The Origin of Life: An Inside Story by Dr. James M. Tour

The Lecture

Synthetic organic chemist Dr. James Tour from Rice University discusses the serious challenges faced by current origin of life research. Duration: 1:23:58.

The Speaker

James M. Tour is an American synthetic organic chemist, specializing in nanotechnology. Tour is the T. T. and W. F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Materials Science and NanoEngineering, and Professor of Computer Science at Rice University in Houston, Texas, United States.

He worked in molecular electronics and molecular switching molecules. Tour’s work on carbon materials chemistry is broad and encompasses fullerene purification, composites, conductive inks for radio frequencies identification tags, carbon nanoreporters for identifying oil downhole, graphene synthesis from cookies and insects, graphitic electronic devices, carbon particle drug delivery for treatment of traumatic brain injury, the merging of 2D graphene with 1D nanotubes to make a conjoined hybrid material, a new graphene-nanotube 2D material called rebar graphene, graphene quantum dots from coal, gas barrier composites, graphene nanoribbon deicing films, supercapacitors and battery device structures, and water splitting to H2 and O2 using metal chalcogenides. His work with the synthesis of graphene oxide, its mechanism of formation,and its use in capturing radionuclides from water is extensive. Tour has developed oxide based electronic memories that can also be transparent and built onto flexible substrates. More recently, he has been using porous metal structures to make renewable energy devices including batteries and supercapacitors, as well as electronic memories. Tour also worked on nanocars, single-molecule vehicles with four independently rotating wheels, axles, and light-activated motors. Tour was the first to show that Feringa-based motors can be used to move a molecule on a surface using light as opposed to electric current from an STM tip. His early independent career focused upon the synthesis of conjugated polymers and precise oligomers. Tour was also a founder of the Molecular Electronics Corporation. He holds joint appointments in the departments of chemistry, computer science, and materials science and nanoengineering at Rice University.

In 2001, Tour signed the Discovery Institute’s “A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism”, a controversial petition which the intelligent design movement uses to promote intelligent design by attempting to cast doubt on evolution. To those who “are disconcerted or even angered that I signed a statement back in 2001” he responded “I have been labeled as an Intelligent Design (ID) proponent. I am not. I do not know how to use science to prove intelligent design although some others might. I am sympathetic to the arguments on the matter and I find some of them intriguing, but the scientific proof is not there, in my opinion. So I prefer to be free of that ID label.”

He had also said that he felt the explanations offered by evolution are incomplete, and he found it hard to believe that nature can produce the machinery of cells through random processes. On his website, he writes that “From what I can see, microevolution is a fact” and “there is no argument regarding microevolution. The core of the debate for me, therefore, is the extrapolation of microevolution to macroevolution.”

In Lee Strobel’s book The Case For Faith - the following commentary is attributed to Tour: “I build molecules for a living, I can’t begin to tell you how difficult that job is. I stand in awe of God because of what he has done through his creation. Only a rookie who knows nothing about science would say science takes away from faith. If you really study science, it will bring you closer to God.”

How to Brainwash a Nation

The Video

A conversation with Yuri Bezmenov, former propagandist for the KGB. Full interview. Duration: 1:21:10.

Speaking to G. Edward Griffin in 1984, Bezmenov explains the various stages of ideological subversion, the first one being “demoralization”. This is a disturbingly accurate foretelling of what befell such hallowed institutions as the BBC, mass-media, the education system, and social-media in general. He explains:

“It’s a great brainwashing process, which goes very slowly and is divided into four basic stages. The first one is demoralization; it takes from 15-20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which is required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxist-Leninist ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students, without being challenged, or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism (American patriotism).”

“The result? The result you can see. Most of the people who graduated in the sixties (drop-outs or half-baked intellectuals) are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and the educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated; they are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their minds, even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, with these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people, you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and common sense people, who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.”

The Speaker

Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov, (1939–1993), also known as Tomas David Schuman, was a Soviet journalist for RIA Novosti and a former PGU KGB informant who defected to Canada.

Mr. Bezmenov was born in 1939 in a suburb of Moscow. He was the son of a high-ranking Soviet army officer. He was educated in the elite schools inside the Soviet Union and became an expert in Indian culture and Indian languages. He had an outstanding career with Novosti—the press agency of the Soviet Union and front for the KGB. One of his interesting assignments was to brainwash foreign diplomats when they visited Moscow. And he tells a little bit about how they did this, and how they planted information which eventually wound up in the press of the free world. He escaped to the West in 1970, after becoming totally disgusted with the Soviet system. He was one of the world’s outstanding experts on Soviet propaganda and disinformation.

In a lecture given in 1983, Yuri Bezmenov said:

“I didn’t have any illusions or allusions about the Soviet system and Communists or Socialist system: it’s the most rotten and unworking system in the world; some people call it state capitalism, socialism, centralised planning – whatever – it doesn’t really matter what kind of name you attach to the system; basically if you are a religious person, it’s a devilish, Satanistic system, which appeals only to the most primitive, negative side of human nature. Er... the basis of the system is denial of private property, human dignity, and personal responsibility, and of course any religious affiliation of a human being to God as a supreme being.”

It was a sentiment most eloquently expressed by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in his lecture “Godlessness: the First Step to the Gulag” (Templeton Prize Lecture, 10 May 1983, London).
