Lettings agency issues every tenant with eviction notice blaming Universal Credit
A lettings agency in Grimsby has taken the “extraordinary” step of issuing hundreds of tenants with a preemptive eviction notice ahead of the roll out of Universal Credit. In a menacing letter, Gap Property, has written to its tenants warning them that if they are in receipt of any benefits under the new system they will need to prepare their rent payments now or face being ordered to leave their homes by Christmas.
Dogged by problems The note has been issued in the wake of serious problems that have dogged the roll out of universal credit, which has led to people being forced to wait a minimum of six weeks without any benefit payments.
Universal credit, which rolls six benefits into one, is due to be rolled out across North East Lincolnshire from 13 December. In its letter sent to each of its 350 properties, Gap Property states: “If you do not pay your rent we will have no option but to ask you to leave and recover losses from your guarantor. “This letter is not intended to cause you alarm, rather than to inform you of the problems that could very well occur during the roll out of Universal Credit,” it adds.
Christmas trauma Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn branded the letter unacceptable and raised the issue during Prime Minister’s Questions yesterday. “Does the Prime Minister think it’s right to put thousands of families, through Christmas, under the trauma of knowing they are about to be evicted because of Universal Credit?,” he asked. Theresa May said there had been concerns raised over people managing their budgets to pay rent. “But what we see after four months is that the number of people in arrears has fallen by a third,” she added.

Quite simply, 5G is an over-hyped “bait and switch” tactic by the Wireless Industry to deploy 4G/LTE so–called “Small Cell” cell phone towers everywhere. “Small Cells”are just a marketing/branding lie because “Small Cells” are full-power cell phone towers that the Industry wants to deploy much too close to people and other living organisms in residential neighborhoods — as close as 10-15 feet from 2nd story windows.
William Webb: The 5G Myth And why Consistent Connectivity is the Goal
Some have suggested that 5G will be whatever interesting developments happen from 2018 onwards. There is much political capital expended in claiming that 5G will be deployed early in a country. MNOs and Governments will simply claim from 2018 onwards that they have 5G even though all that has been deployed is evolved 4G. For all the debate, 5G could be a label, not a technology.
End users will be told that they now have 5G even though they have not changed their handsets nor received any improvements in service. Or alternatively, in the case where 5G is the label applied to the introduction of IoT, consumers may be told that 5G is not about their handset but about the ability to connect their devices. In the US, the term 5G might be applied to fixed wireless deployments, with “5G to the home:. Given the confusion around what 5G is, this second “label whatever we have as 5G: approach could be used in Europe and the US alongside the first “limited millimeter wave deployment” approach happening in Asia Pacific.
This is the chilling observation: these planning documents for the recently installed 4G Palo Alto Small cells, show that even though the RF/MW radiation calculations were made for 6 watts of input power, the actual input power for each small cell antenna is 300 to 500 Watts and the “associated equipment” power supply cabinet is 17.5 cubic feet — one for each antenna!
Similar documents for a 2017 Verizon 4G Small Cell deployment in Weston, MA state that each antenna outputs 1,257 Watts of Effective Radiated Power (ERP), a significant RF/MW radiation exposure. These military-grade RF/MW radiation exposures do not belong in residential zones not matter what over-the-rainbow promises are being made about 5G by those who wish to profit for 4G/5G Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) installations everywhere.
As SB.649 contains no language for real-time monitoring of the levels of RF/MW radiation and no warning or detection systems if the RF/MW radiation reaches hazardous levels, then the equipment is already in place to easily increase the power input from 6 watts to 500 watts, which constitutes a Microwave Radiation weapon on every block in downtown Palo Alto — not unlike weapons the Federal Government has already designed and deployed.
There will come a time when man and machine will merge into a zombified drone and we may be a lot closer to that reality than you think! Nanobots are now the norm as microscopic machines are now integrating themselves with our bodies turning humans beings into total slaves. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth shows you the latest in nano tech that can be swallowed and last for days collecting all sorts of data.
This British Medical Journal Study shows that between 2010 and 2017, there have been 120,000 excessive deaths due to Government cutbacks. What a Disgrace!
This study demonstrates that recent constraints in PEH and PES spending in England were associated with nearly 45 000 higher than expected numbers of deaths between 2012 and 2014. If these trends continue, even when considering the increased planned funding as of 2016, we estimate approximately 150 000 additional deaths may arise between 2015 and 2020. Combining these projected excess deaths and the observed deaths prior to 2015 translates to around 120 000 excess deaths from 2010 to 2017. Contemporaneous reductions in life expectancy and excesses in measures of preventable death both validated our mortality findings.
The excess deaths observed in our study corroborate recent evidence highlighting the reversal of declining mortality trends observed in England and Wales in the past decade.13 Similar to findings reported by Hiam and colleagues,13 we observed that those aged ≥60 years are most susceptible to the observed excess mortality burden, as compared with those aged <60 years. We added to this evidence by additionally evaluating PYLL and life expectancy as outcomes, projecting excess deaths to 2020, determining potential mediating factors which may explain the observed excess deaths, and testing different hypothetical scenarios of funding and efficiency improvement which may be able to close the mortality gap.

Revealed: DWP’s full list of 87 Job centres to be axed across Britain over the next 7 months – and the dates they’re due to shut down
The government has confirmed plans to close a total of 87 Jobcentres across the UK over the next seven months on top of 15 already axed in August and September.
It comes after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) revealed one in 10 Jobcentres around the UK were to be closed this year – with the loss of up to 750 jobs.
However, this has now jumped to a further 58 in 2018 – including five in Glasgow alone.
The shake up will put a total of 500 roles at risk – although the DPW says the “majority of staff will remain in their current offices with others moving to another DWP site nearby”. Some staff will be placed on its voluntary redundancy scheme.
The DWP told Mirror Money the closures will see some smaller jobcentres merge with larger ones, while others will be co-located with local government premises to deliver multiple community services in one place.
A further 40 to be moved into local authority buildings under ‘efficiency’ savings while four will be moved to new premises.
It said the changes will save more than £140 million a year over the next 10 years and will offer better value for the tax payer – it added that 80% of Jobseeker’s Allowance and 99% of Universal Credit applications are now made online.
According to Citizens Advice, 24% of new claimants are having to wait longer than six weeks for a payment – which could make matters worse if they’re unable to visit their local branch.
The charity also warns that a third of people that have had difficulties with the system have made more than 10 calls to the Universal Credit helpline, often having to wait more than 30 minutes to get through.
To counteract issues with length wait periods for payments to come through, the government has said people will now be able to get advance payments to help cover rent and bills – however with closures imminent, these claims may have to be processed online or via the phone only.
In January, the DWP published a full list of Jobcentres earmarked to be “divested” in the year to December 2017 – these are the closures that have now been confirmed for the next seven months.
Four radio cells in the Deutsche Telekom network are demonstrating the future of communication right now. The antennas in Berlin are the first in Europe with a live 5Gconnection in a real world setting. Using pre-standard 5G New Radio (5G NR), the future mobile communications component of 5G, the network is achieving throughput of more than two gigabits per second to a single customer device, as well as a latency of three milliseconds on commercial sites in Berlin’s Schöneberg district. Extremely high throughput and very short network reaction times are the key capabilities of 5G, which is set to drive forward the development of exciting new applications.
“We are demonstrating 5G live here, in the middle of Berlin, rather than in a lab. This is a very decisive developmental step on the way to the global launch of 5G, which is planned for 2020,” said Claudia Nemat, Member of the Management Board responsible for Technology & Innovation at Deutsche Telekom. “If everything is connected to everything else, customers need a high-performance, reliable and secure network. Industry in particular will benefit from 5G as a powerful enabler for a wide range of applications. We are ready for 5G.”
Deutsche Telekom demonstrated the network’s high performance by showcasing some early application ideas that are enhanced by 5G. The augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) applications benefit from 5G’s super high data rates and real-time responses. A particular highlight was the live transmission of an ultra-high-definition video stream over 5G NR to a VR device.
The next communication standard
5G is more than the next mobile communications standard; 5G is the future telecommunications standard that will bring mobile and fixed network communication together. A new network architecture and design will also play a significant role. 5Gnetworks will be controlled by software, will be programmable and will be managed end-to-end. This creates the enabling platform for the provision of a large number of different services.
5G New Radio, the new 5G air interface, will work in combination with the evolution of 4G/LTE technology, which means that this will also play a decisive role in future communications. A key technology in 5G NR to increase capacity and data rates is the use of advanced antenna techniques: Known as Massive MIMO (multiple input/multiple output), it increases the number of antenna elements deployed at both the base station and in the subscriber device, which can increase capacity through a much more efficient use of the frequency spectrum.
First step on the way to 5G for all
“5G New Radio in Berlin is the first major step towards 5G for everybody,” said Deutsche Telekom CTO Bruno Jacobfeuerborn. “As soon as the standard is defined and is available, we will proceed in 2018 to lay the foundation for large-scale build-out. This is how we are driving the technology development in Europe and demonstrate our innovation power.”
Deutsche Telekom is using the frequency spectrum in the 3.7 gigahertz range coupled with Huawei equipment for its implementation in Berlin. The four Huawei antennas are located at three different sites: Winterfeldtstraße (two cells), Martin-Luther-Straße and Pohlstraße.
“5G is getting close to prime time. The successful live transmission over 5G is an important technical contribution to the 5G community for the two companies. Huawei will continue investing in Research & Development and enhance its cooperation with partners to make progress in 5G technology and the development of an industry ecosystem,” said Deng Tai Hua, president of the Huawei Wireless Network Product Line.
A 5G pre-standard system is the technical basis for the network in Berlin. This means that the specifications in the Huawei equipment used are following the progress of the global 3GPP specifications for the 5G New Radio standard. It is anticipated that the specifications of the system used will be completed by 3GPP in December 2017.
5G live in Berlin
In Berlin, Deutsche Telekom demonstrated how the 5G network’s multi-gigabit data rates and low latencies can enrich, for example, an AR application around a slot car track. For this, the 5G network delivered additional context information from an edge cloud in real time using the AR glasses. Thanks navigational prompts and race position, as well as other real time information, the user can experience really interactive and immersive AR.
The example makes it clear how the 5G enabled offloading of computational and power hungry tasks to edge clouds will enable lighter AR glasses with longer battery lives and will at the same time open up a vast range of new possibilities.
To accelerate the development of new applications for 5G, Deutsche Telekom recently launched the Low Latency Prototyping Programs at its hub:raum sites in Berlin and Krakow. The programs are aimed at innovative developers who want to develop products benefitting from Edge Computing, as well as 5G network performance as it emerges.
Deutsche Telekom is piloting the use of 5G for industry at the Port of Hamburg. The aim is to tailor the 5G network to meet the diverse requirements of the port. Traffic control data, reliable traffic light steering and environmental monitoring are the first application scenarios for 5G. This enables the digital transformation of the port to support its future growth.
