Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home

Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home?

You Perceptive Readers will find this 5G Wireless Safe technology an important subject to talk about over coffee. Yes, the following information is to provide thoughts you may or may not have considered at this time.
Is 5G Wireless Safe Technology in your Home?

Think about the children. This is a thought adults keep in mind when it comes to anything, and we of humanity do mean anything that can affect a child adversely. The smallest of us can’t speak for themselves, and so the parents and one’s in positions of trust have a wonderful responsibility to take perfect care of them.

Didn’t that statement just make you feel good inside? It is also a sobering thought as well.
Is 5G wireless safe for children to be around?

The (IoT) Internet of things will continue to take the already billions of connected devices to hundreds of billions with 5G capable devices. That’s if the 5G implementation of telecom and corporate companies go as planned.

The question people are still asking, “Is this powerful technology safe for children?” Is it safe for humans to have our home’s and neighborhoods air space saturated with these waves transmitting in all these (IoT) devices, along with our phones?
A Statement from Frank Clegg on 5G

After viewing the video below by Frank Clegg, I made this statement on my Minds Product of Culture channel to the subscribers:

FYI
Me: Take it from someone who was certified in multi-channel communications decades ago. Though I have a deep appreciation for technology, my experience and knowledge gives creditable red flags and great caution with the way they are talking about the implementation of 5G. Like energy plants having to be shielded with alot of safe guards, researchers may find 5G technology is in the same RISK category that requires such (insulation) protections.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSP2exnmJXg

Mr, Frank Clegg – Former President of Microsoft Canada
Technologies Mission is to enhance our quality of life.

It aids in building, feeding, and medically advanced healing research as never before. The theme parks and recreational escapees we travel to are the majority of the time provided by the safe usage of technology.

We may find 5G wireless technology is also like driving a race car. Though the vehicle can travel at great speeds, going at those highspeeds is not allowed everywhere for the public’s safety.
We may also find 5G wireless technology a catch twenty- two situation catch 22.

Technology is a wonderful tool. Let us be always aware it is also a powerful tool that should be respected.
Why does something work the way it does?
Do I need special garments (clothing) and training to use such tools?

Becoming knowledgeable for ourselves in the benefits and risk of these technologies will help us to make better decisions. The children of humanity will also thank us for it. These precious minds are worth the necessary research.
My experience, Mr. Frank Clegg words on this 5G technology topic should not be hastily ignored.

6 24 Billion Visa and Mastercard Class Action Settlement

6.24 Billion Visa and Mastercard Class Action Settlement.

This Article was repaired or refurbished on March 10, 2020. It was originally posted on April 17, 2019 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

Dear Perceptive Readers, This is going to be as succinct an article, as possible by me, for you professionals who want to understand the Visa and Mastercard Action Settlement. You may also want to register this as ethical business practices as well.
These 4 questions will be covered

What is a Class Action Settlement?
Did Visa and MasterCard break any laws?
Were you cheated or your rights violated?
Where can you find out more on how to proceed?
Read This Section on Ethics

To prepare your perceptive mind to make a balance decision on this business matter, read and listen to Ethics A and Ethics B

Ethics A) “Ethics: The field of ethics (or moral philosophy) involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong behavior. Philosophers today usually divide ethical theories into three general subject areas: metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics. Metaethics investigates where our ethical principles come from, and what they mean. Are they merely social inventions? Do they involve more than expressions of our individual emotions? Metaethical answers to these questions focus on the issues of universal truths, the will of God, the role of reason in ethical judgments, and the meaning of ethical terms themselves.” –https://www.iep.utm.edu/ethics/

Ethics B) Do you Understand Communication Ethics Principles? (Video)

VISA AND MASTERCARD CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT
6.24 Billion Visa and Mastercard Class Action Settlement

This is a proposed $5.54–$6.24 billion settlement to provide payments to merchants who accepted Visa and Mastercard at any time from January 1, 2004.

1) What is a Class Action Settlement?

A class action is a procedural device that permits one or more plaintiffs to file and prosecute a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group, or “class”. – Cornell Law School – https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/class_action

Just One Example: You own a business, as the innocent plaintiff, that has been hurt by another company’s business practices that violated/broke the law, now the defendant, in their dealings/transactions with you. Your fellow merchants, whether in the same location or country-wide experienced the same treatment.

This is what your experience/complaint results in: “ In a class action, people or businesses sue not only for themselves, but also on behalf of other people or businesses with similar legal claims and interests. Together all of these people or businesses with similar claims and interests form a class, and are class members.”

2) Did Visa and Mastercard break any laws?

This lawsuit is principally about the interchange fees attributable to merchants that accepted Visa or Mastercard credit or debit cards between January 1, 2004 and January 25, 2019, and Visa’s and Mastercard’s rules for merchants that have accepted those cards.

The Rule 23(b)(3) Class Plaintiffs claim that…

3) Were you cheated or your rights violated?

Rule 23(b)(3) Class Plaintiffs claim that Visa & Master Card its respective member banks, including the Bank Defendants violated the law(s) by carrying out the following practice(s):

Violated the law because they set interchange fees.

*They imposed and enforced rules that limited merchants from steering their customers to other payment methods. (E.g no-surcharge rules, no-discounting rules, honor-all-cards rules)

*Conspired together about some of the business practices challenged
• They continued in those activities despite the fact that Visa changed its corporate structure and became a publicly owned corporation after this case was filed.
• Conduct caused the merchants to pay excessive interchange fees
“The Defendants say they have done nothing wrong. They claim their business practices are legal, justified, the result of independent competition and have benefitted merchants and consumers.”
4) Where can you find out more on how to proceed?
Current Status
On January 24, 2019 the Court granted preliminary approval to the settlement filed on September 18, 2018. The Order is available
How do I ask for money from this settlement?
You must file a valid claim to get money from this Settlement. If the Court finally approves the settlement, and you do not exclude yourself from the Rule 23(b)(3) Settlement Class, you will receive a claim form in the mail or by email. If you do not receive a claim form and/or are not sure whether you are part of this settlement, contact the Class Administrator:

Concluding Information
This information is provided to you as an FYI. I very much realize how intelligent you readers are here. Yet, as has been stated, at times the thoroughness of documents made for taxes, court cases, and contracts can be a bit overwhelming for the best of us. Especially with people who have the creative mindset. Though you create complex music and art in general, you like to keep things simple, clean, and honest when it comes to business and professional matters. In general, most people wish such things of this nature could be so simple. All the same, this information is not to tell you what to do, but give you some idea on what it is about. – Regards, J.

Spiceworks Relevant Advisors of Information Technology

As technology continues to be used in beneficial ways, the Information Technology professionals are having to be more informed than ever. When implementing an Information Technology solution you really do not want to go overboard. At the same time, you do not want to underestimate what will be needed over the course of 5 years. With new software programs being released and updated monthly, the professional may feel the need to implement a solution due to the intense marketing of a product.

Spiceworks Relevant Advisers of Information Technology

The year was 2006. A company named Spiceworks held up its creation to the public. This was an answer to many IT Advisers professionals’ dreams. The company designed and created a free network-monitoring tool. Did I mention this tool is free?

This company not only created a valuable software package for small to medium size businesses, moreover, they instituted an online community structure for support.

Even though the ever-increasing capabilities of this network management software could be expounded upon, the scope of this article provides information about the Spiceworks online community.

The majority of the users in the “Spiceworks Community” share a common background of knowledge and application in the information technology field. These bright administrators range from introductory to experts. Why is such an online community helpful? Contrary to popular beliefs, your information technology professional does not know everything. (Coffee cups have just dropped around the world.)

Here is where the beauty of this online community comes in. The beginners can learn from the seasoned users of the network monitoring software. If you add the years of experience for the IT professionals in the Spiceworks Community, the years would number into the millions. How can this be? Here is the answer. The noteworthy achievement of having more than a million professionals to use the software was accomplished in the second quarter of the year 2010. Large quantities of these users/ advisers have over a decade of experience; hence, you can do the math.

The Spiceworks Community is not limited to giving advice just for its product. This online community is subdivided into groups the user can join. These groups help you to narrow down subjects that are of high concern to you and your job. You are able to subscribe, create discussions, and receive e-mail notifications when someone posts in the groups.

Notice just a few of the interesting subjects mentioned in the forums:
Do you have questions about Windows operating systems? Then the “Windows” IT category would be the one for you. See list of today’s popular IT categories:

SECURITY- There are professional advisers in here that will help you to understand the layering principles of security.

SOFTWARE- What’s out there. How you implement and troubleshoot your choices.

STORAGE AND BACKUPS- This is the first thing everyone needs to have in places but there are many choices. Peruse the many suggestions here.

VIRTUALIZATION- No longer for enterprise level businesses only, understand what virtualization is and why it is an important solution for small business too.

CLOUD- People realize everything is stored on servers throughout the world’s Internet. Understand the different components and services people are using to be a part of the all encompassing Internet named “Cloud”.
Ratings and Reviews

Do you need research and ratings on hardware, software, or other information technology services? Then you will want to search through the “Ratings and Reviews” section of the community.

Hey, as an IT guru, do you just want to share how you have solved the complexities of the universe? The “Water Cooler” group would be the one for you. This group’s topics alone continue to grow exponentially. Good thing the universe is infinite!
SpiceWorld and SpiceCorps

This online community has implemented other avenues for the IT professionals to meet in one or two ways.

First, there are the “SpiceWorld” events they have each year. All in this online community are encouraged to attend. An article could be written alone about this event. The workshops, breakout sessions, and vision of the company are shared in a spirit of comradely. Such a setting is conducive to learning.

Additionally, there are localized area groups called “SpiceCorps.” They discuss general issues related to information technology in a relaxed atmosphere.

This online community has evolved in such a way that it is not viewed as a byproduct of the Spiceworks network management software, but an intricate part of a valuable service.

In closing, the Spiceworks online community is designed to help anyone to become knowledgeable and efficient in their jobs

Star Trek a Gene Roddenberry Vision Part 2

Star Trek a Gene Roddenberry Vision Part 2

Star Trek points to a time when reason and communicated good thoughts have won over the opposing forces of the two.

This Article was repaired or refurbished on February 20, 2020. It was originally posted on April 11, 2019 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

As the Perceptive Readers e-mail subscribers here are aware, a couple of times a year, I write a longer blog article that could be placed in a personal journal (for the gentlemen) or diary (for the ladies).
Gene Roddenberry’s Writing Presents a Problem

Gene Roddenberry was a creative visionary. Would anyone disagree with that statement?
In his original 1965 Star Trek pilot introduction, he explained how the networks were in love with westerns. You will find this to be an accurate observation from the sixties. Just talk to an aunt or uncle. Oh I forgot, you may need to talk with Grandma and Grandpa. So even though the networks were looking for westerns, Mr. Roddenberry gave them so much more!
Still, here is the question. Did the networks appreciate the unique gift to the world of entertainment, which would also be migrated to books?
Everyone can get the answer here:

“The Cage” – Star Trek Original Pilot – Gene Roddenberry Intro!
VIDEO

Gene Roddenberry’s Writing Shows “We Get It”

After viewing the documentary pilot for Star Trek, you were able to hear with your own ears Mr. Roddenberry point out the following concerns the show’s effect would be on the society at that time.

No smoking characters
A crew alien member designed to look like audiences perception of the devil
Women in command roles with high IQs
Mixed skin colors (White, Black, Asian, etc ) working together and in romance

Are you one in the frame of mind as feeling, “The networks concerns were based on ignorance and fear”?

All the same, what did Gene Roddenberry report about the letters he received in feedback on the show?

What is our observable outcome?

First Season 29 Episodes 1966 -1967

Second Season 26 Episodes 1967- 1968

Third Season 24 Episodes 1968- 1969

Star Trek Original Seasons

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) Director Nicholas Meyer
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) Director Leonard Nimoy
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) Director William Shatner
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) Director Nicholas Meyer

Star Trek Original Movies

Is There One in Your Life or in You?

Is there a Gene Roddenberry in you? Or what about one of his characters in the original series?

Personalities who get the sense of this, a respect for others, get it; when it comes to Star Trek. And no, this does not mean our idiosyncrasies do not cause conflicts with others at times.

But, when you sit back and think about what is happening, whether it be by some internal or external strife, your reasoning ability can identify the problem.

Take the problems that have occurred with different tribes and caste systems, if you will? Or; two individuals who do not see eye to eye.

What has happened even with good friends who were closer than brothers when they did not find where the hurtful problem was residing and how to ethically resolve it?

Ah, what was going through Gene’s mind when he created Day of the Dove?
https://youtu.be/_v698nFlAVw

Wow! Could you resolve a problem like the one above? Some of you authors have written similar scenarios in your books; we just know it. A character that reasons on what is right and also brave enough to do it. Which saves the day!

We could go on, but let’s close with this thought. Gene Roddenberry wrote with this future view. No smoking, piracy, prejudice, or religion. And yet, his themes went into references from the Good Book in more than one episode. Imagine that.

I’m aware of even some readers here have not given consideration to the role of religion; Which I’m not going to dive into here. Again, Imagine this.

Imagine asking a King who walks past you for an opportunity to speak with him and to learn from him. The King likes your smile and sincerity. He points to one of his trusted aids and says, “This person knows what makes me happy. He will tell you and even give you exercises, if you will, to help keep you healthy and strong as my subject and NOW friend.” You look at the King with a smile. The King then says, “Call me when you need me or just to talk.”

Such an encounter and words have come about in an illustrative sense due to these words taught by a famous prophet that sincere people exercise in a regular routine and innate desire: (The Good Book:Matthew 22:36-40)

Where would we be without such elevated thoughts?

Would Gene Rodenberry’s original series have been as successful without them?

Gratitude for Twitter and Facebook Contacts

Hello Everyone, Twitter & Facebook Contacts, No one likes to be taken for granted wouldn’t you agree? And with that being said, know that I thank you for your support this past year. Whether you are one of my Twitter and Facebook contacts, and additional networks contacts; your interest is appreciated

This Article was repaired or refurbished on February 16, 2020. It was originally posted on December 30, 2011 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

Twitter and Facebook Thank you

At first, I thought I would send this through Twitter to each of you but it is a little more than a 140 characters. A great shout out has to go to the Twitter and Facebook users’ United Kingdom crew, and you know who you are! Your expressions give me a perspective on your friendships, family, and idioms of the land. It has been a pleasure.

The photographers

Through your eyes and camera lenses you continue to make the saying come alive that a picture is worth a thousand words. Whether it is natural ability or through training you have acquired such skill, it is evident that your heart is involved too. Thank you for sharing some of your works with me.

The writers, authors, and freelancers

What can I say, there is a kindred spirit running through people such as you. In paying attention to details, you have shared information through your stories and articles that are sometimes overlooked, or not viewed as important. They may even be considered little things. However, you realize the importance of little things to tell a story. The artistically inclined recognizes a masterpiece starts with a brush stroke and often requires well-placed touch ups for details. Thank you for the interest and advice.

The men and women of youthful power

Youth is a time for enjoyment and at the same time finding out what truly is important for you to be successful in life. I value your thoughts, feedback, and opinions too. And one thing I have come to appreciate about young people is your ability and sincerity. Your expressions show you are thinkers; no one will take that away from you. You may agree, at times, that physically your body still matures faster than your emotional maturity. Something your parents well know. You keep these things in mind because you will be an adult soon enough. Then you may express at times it is not all it is cracked up to be with the added responsibilities. (Little humor there) All the same, I’ve appreciated reading your feedback and reports. I’ve considered it a privilege.

In closing, from the bottom of my heart, I wish globally all the best Twitter and Facebook contacts in your goals and in what truly matters.

Perceptive Readers and Sci-fi interests.
