South Korea building ‘smart’ city in Kuwait in 2019

The US$4 billion project is expected to house 25,000 to 40,000 families

A consortium of South Korean construction companies will begin building a $4 billion “smart” city in Kuwait in 2019, Seoul’s infrastructure ministry said on Monday.

Yonhap News Agency reports the group is led by POSCO A&C and Hyundai Architects and Engineers Associates Co. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport says the eco-friendly and digitally connected urban hub will serve as a prototype for similar Korean projects throughout the Middle East. The new Kuwait city is expected to accommodate between 25,000 — 40,000 families.

 

Whole new cities, such as Songdo in South Korea, have already been constructed.

Its buildings have automatic climate control and computerised access; its roads and water, waste and electricity systems are dense with electronic sensors to enable the city’s brain to track and respond to the movement of residents.

Officially known as the Songdo International Business District, this 40 billion USD project is promoted as a smart, green, low-carbon city.(The fact that 1,500 acres of Yellow Sea marshland, home to several endangered bird species, was devastated for this ‘green’ city is another matter.)

Songdo- a new kind of city: completely artificial, painstakingly designed, without a hint of decay or poverty, and nearly empty. It’s a human desert. Characterless. Sterile and soul-less, the city looks different from Korean cities. There are no poor people, no street vendors, no old people.


Songdo is also a town under constant surveillance: 500 cameras ensure total grid coverage to regulate the traffic or detect ‘suspicious’ behaviour. Even the opening of a sewer cover is immediately notified to the IFEZ  management centre in one of the towers in Songdo. Who work in close collaboration with the police.

 

If an entire city has an “operating system”, what happens when it goes wrong? The one thing that is certain about software is that it crashes. The smart city is really just a “perpetual beta city”. We can be sure that accidents will happen – driverless cars will crash; bugs will take down whole transport subsystems or the electricity grid; drones could hit passenger aircraft. How smart will the architects of the smart city look then?

Park Seon-mi says “There are sometimes strange smells which come from the factories in neighbouring cities and we are not safe from the pollution from China”. “The buildings are totally transparent and it is impossible to open the windows”, says her friend Hong Ji-hyeon. “In summer and winter the air conditioning is on all the time. I wonder if I don’t use more than before”. She herself had not seen the link between smart city and environment.

“To me, it’s just digital and in this respect it’s not very different from Seoul”.

More than a decade on from its inception and the city is less than a quarter full, with just 70,000 residents. It’s an odd mixture of wastelands intermingled with random large-scale development. People aren’t coming and neither are businesses.

There are many UK smart city start up companies.

In a background paper on smart cities put together  by the United Kingdom’s Department for Business Innovation and Skills, ARUP estimates that the global market for smart urban systems (including transport, energy, sanitation and healthcare) This is a very lucrative area for business. It is already a £280m market that will grow to £1tn by 2020, according to UK government estimates. The UK’s share of this global market is estimated at 10%. other words, it’s a huge market opportunity.

One such company is Design for Social Change. (D4SC) is an urban innovation company based in London, Bangalore and Berlin. It develops collaborative urban technologies to co-create smarter cities. It was incorporated in the UK in 2013.

City authorities in Malaysia, Portugal and Denmark are exploring using D4SC’s citizen engagement and smart city planning.

According to D4SC founder Priya Prakash, one of the company’s most successful initiatives has been Changify SmarterStreets, a next-generation data platform that combines bottom-up citizen data – what he calls “little data” – with top-down statistical and historical city data (big data) to co-create smarter cities in real time.

“We are technically piloting this in Plymouth with an active local community of cyclists and local Amey maintenance crews to co-create intelligent service provisioning for road infrastructure through real-time feedback loops using social media,” says Prakash.

“This pilot is trialling a new bottom-up, citizen-driven approach using crowdsourcing, sensor data and voting. It could change the way that highways issues in cities can be managed.”

NOW DO YOU SEE WHY AMEY ARE CUTTING DOWN TREES IN SHEFFIELD? DO YOU SEE THE LINK TO THE SMARTER CITY PROGRAM THAT INVOLVES 5G?

Manchester New Chartist Event, “The Chartists are back!” Thursday 19th April 2018

This will be a two-hour event explaining the New Chartist Movement to the people of Manchester.

Justin Walker and Alan Davies from ‘The Word’ newspaper will be speaking and possibly others.

There hopefully will be plenty of time for networking, questions and discussions.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

A woman in Florida married an ancient tree last week, in order to rescue it from being chopped down. This is no laughing matter. Sheffield protestors are being arrested because they are trying to stop thousands of trees from being removed. This is happening all over the place, London removed 50,000 trees over a five year period, in Pembrokeshire dozens of protected trees were illegally chopped down in January. Hundreds were chopped down in Darlington in March.

300-year-old trees were chopped down in Stoke on Trent in November 2017.
In Norwich, avenues of trees were chopped down in December 2017.
Wandsworth Council chopped down 54 trees at Tooting Common in September 2017 saying they were a public threat.
Wiltshire Council cut down trees in October 2017.
in 2017 Cornwall cut down a mile long stretch off trees,whilst a regeneration scheme in Plymouth saw a further 60 trees chopped down in February, the scheme is due to be complete in 2020.
In Cardiff trees were chopped down in December for flood defense, whilst the ones chopped down in January in Leicester were reported to be for a cycle path.

This is not confined to the UK, in places like France, 10,000 roadside trees were chopped to improve road safety and 42,000 removed from the Canal Du Midi.The reasons given were that they had a fungus that was brought over by US soldiers during WW11.
In Queensland, Australia 1 million acres of trees were cut down in one year from 2015 to 2016.
Thousands more in West Connex and Sydney Metro.

This is clearly an agenda, we know that trees block the beams from millimetre waves that 5G utilises, yet, many refuse to believe that this is the real reason.
Even though Korea chopped down an ancient forest to showcase 5G at their Winter Olympics, bragging of using 5G to shoot beams at wild Boar, still the issues of trees is being ignored as a link to 5G.

The chopping down of healthy trees is being opposed by many, yet this action is sanctioned by councils up and down the country.
A 12 metre tree provides 100kg of oxygen per year, we use 740kg per year, that means that for every 7/8 trees that are chopped down thats one person oxygen for a year.

What sort of madness is this?
Maybe we should all marry a tree?

The fight back to gain our Sovereignty, Divinity and Freedom started for many back in 2010 and for some even further than that, today in 2018 this fight is gaining momentum and strength with new Communities and Charter groups forming across the UK and the World. More and more people are realising the predicament they are in and can forsee the future is very bleak if the Elite and corrupt Governments are not faced with some kind of resistance and held accountable for thier treasons which still does carry a death penalty in the UK. Unfortunately these groups have many fronts to aim for from the Internet of Things (5G), Fracking, Civil Rights, and corruptly made up Laws in favour of corporations just to name a few. Many more people are needed to join these groups or even form their own, fortunately leaflets, FREE books and conferences are becoming more widely available and easily accessible to help people understand, learn and plan a course of action.

In my opinion 2020 will be a decisive year for either Man gaining his freedom or the Elites reaching a point of checkmate against the World because in 2020 will be the start of the Smart Grid and then there will be no turning back, we will have lost our ability to confront these people. Of course it isn’t just the Smart Grid that will seal our doom Brexit is another Elephant in the room for the simple reason Brexit was never meant to be a fair referendum and it’s ultimate goal is to hand the people to a foreign rule and then there is no hope to regain your sovereignty. (Problem, Reaction, Solution)

For me to go through all the problems in this World is a pointless excersise most people reading this will know already and for people who dont, well this should give them enough to research for themselves. Below will be links to four very important FREE books firstly because of their contents which is invaluable and secondly the ability to pass them on, they are both in PDF so can be easily distrubuted. Also you find two links to Wesbites that are fighting back by peaceful means but are starting to give them a few bruises by using Common Law / Natural Law which they cannot ignore if done correctly.

The time to stand up and fight is now, the clock is ticking and it’s against you and by staying silent or waiting for something to happen you are giving these treasonous criminals your consent, personally I will not play their games and will resist their system every chance I get no matter what the consequences maybe.

To Hastings Borough Council

The international biomedical research community has made it quite clear that radiofrequency radiation, and specifically cellular radiofrequency radiation, can harm people in an enormous number of ways.  Most recently the National Institutes of Health linked cellular radiation to brain cancer (glioma) which is usually fatal, and to a nerve cancer (schwannoma) that can be fatal.  That is, the scientific evidence suggests that we must treat radiofrequency radiation, and in particular cellular radiation, not only as dangerous to health generally, but also as a CARCINOGEN that is dangerous to life itself.So, when a small cell tower is placed “up close and personal” to people, those people must be regarded as under “assault” by a carcinogen. And, there are laws against assault. Further, since that assault can result in death, those people must be considered as under “assault with a deadly weapon”.  That is also against the law.  Furthermore, if any of those people die as the result of that assault, that is “murder”.  Murder is also against the law. http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2011/pdfs/pr208_E.pdf

So, it seems fair to ask this question:  Is the 1996 Telecommunications Act so powerful that it overrides the laws against assault, assault with a deadly weapon, and murder? I doubt very much that the authors of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, in their zeal to promote the rapid expansion of cellular technology without prior testing for safety, intended to convey a right to the telecommunications industry to assault, and even kill, people.

The National Infrastructure Commision has claimed that in order to facilitate 5G technology the UK would need to place small cell towers every 100/300 metres.

If Hastings council officials want to protect the public from harm, they need to rally their legal might to resist ALL EFFORTS to install small cell towers in the area, not just because that is the right thing to do, but also because such installation violates multiple existing laws that are reasonably believed to be preeminent.

I would be proud to see Hastings take the lead in making this argument against the 1996 Telecommunications Act, which has proved to be an unjust law.


If you don’t believe that cellular radiation is harmful

If you reject the above line of reasoning because you don’t believe that cellular radiation is harmful, then I ask you to consider these questions:

  • On which sources of information are you relying for assurances of safety?  Do those sources have extensive backgrounds in the biological effects of radiofrequency radiation?  Are those sources free from vested interests in cellular communications or other wireless technologies?
  • Are those sources more authoritative on health issues than the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization?  That organization linked radiofrequency radiation, and in particular cellular radiation, to cancer back in 2011?
  • Are those sources more authoritative on health issues than the National Toxicology Program (NTP) at the National Institutes of Health?  The NTP confirmed the link of radiofrequency radiation, and in particular cellular radiation, to cancer in 2016 and to DNA damage more broadly in 2017?    These findings are the result of the largest study ($25 million) that the NTP has ever conducted of any toxin.
  • Have you read some of the scientific research literature that connects radiofrequency radiation to biological effects and that has been funded by impartial sources?

If your answer to the last question above is “No”, I hope that you will explore at least some of the vast biomedical research literature available.

Also, for an excellent online overview of the impact of wireless technology on health, please see the web site of the Environmental Health Trust (https://ehtrust.org/).  This organization is led by Devra Davis, Ph.D., M.P.H. who has had a distinguished career of public service in support of public health.  Dr. Davis was a member of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that was named a joint recipient of the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2007.

The BioInitiative Report updated in 2012, prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, reviewed 1800 studies and conclude,“EMF and RFR are preventable toxic exposures. We have the knowledge and means to save global populations from multi-generational adverse health consequences by reducing both ELF and RFR exposures. Proactive and immediate measures to reduce unnecessary EMF exposures will lower disease burden and rates of premature death.”

It is the councils responsibility to protect the residents of Hastings, the council  needs to critically consider the potential impact of the 5 th generation wireless infrastructure on the health and safety of the residents of Hastings  before proceeding to deploy this infrastructure.

The International EMF Scientist Appeal is evidence of growing concern among EMF experts world-wide. This Appeal is currently signed by 225 scientists in 41 nations of the world. All of them have conducted EMF studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals that reported biological and adverse health effects caused by human-made sources of EMF. The combination of these reported findings lends credibility to the Appeal’s strong recommendation for review of the current EMF exposure guidelines set by the FCC, as these guidelines are considered to be obsolete and inadequate to protect human health and the environment. https://www.jrseco.com//wp-content/uploads/2017-08_EU_5G_Appeal_10_August_2017.pdf?c=cf13ce20305c

I therefore request that HBC  prohibit local  “small cell” wireless antennas , including equipment collocated on existing structures or located on new “poles, structures, or non-pole structures,” including those within the public right-of-way and buildings. 

Not all Hastings residents  want their homes, neighborhoods, towns, and rural country-sides to be polluted with RFR. Telecom deployment serves the unbounded profit motive of telecom corporations. What is in the best public interest is to avoid unnecessary RFR exposures.

The stealth meters:
Analog meters with hidden transmitters

blanked out to protect privacy.

Analog electrical meters sometimes transmit to the utility, just as a digital smart meter.  Many people with these meters are unaware that they have a transmitter on their house, as these meters look like regular analog meters.

These “stealth meters” have been in use for well over a decade.  New analog meters are probably no longer installed, but it is possible to upgrade some models by installing a transmitter.

There are meters available which transmit by wireless or by PLC, which both can cause health problems.

Keywords:  wireless, electrical meter, smart meter, wired smart meter, wireless analog meter, analog smart meter, wireless electromechanical meter, power line carrier, PLC, hidden transmitter, health

Analog meter with hidden PLC transmitter.  The serial number has been
blanked out to protect privacy.

Analog meters which may contain a transmitter

The following models of analog meters can be equipped with a transmitter.  The list may not be complete:

ABB AB1
D5S
Elster AB1R
General Electric I-70-S
Landis+Gyr MS

MX

Schlumberger J5S
Siemens MS
MX

These meters are also available without transmitters.  Having a meter of these models does not mean it has a transmitter.

How to identify a transmitter

The transmitter can sometimes be seen as a circuit board mounted inside the electrical meter, if looking very closely.  A purely mechanical meter does not have any electronic circuits inside.

A General Electric meter with a PLC transmitter mounted on the bottom.
The green circuit board can be seen.  The Turtle logo on the white label identifies
the meter as a PLC transmitter.  The white label has a bar code on it, which is blanked out for privacy.

Look closely at all labels on the front, the sides and the bottom of the meter.  Especially at the bottom.  These labels can help identify what sort of transmitter is inside, if any.

All wireless meters must display a label with an FCC ID number.  This identifies the type of transmitter, not the individual meter.  See the end of this document on how to look up what the FCC ID number means.

The FCC ID label on a Landis+Gyr meter.
The ID identifies the type of transmitter, not the individual meter.

If there is a label stating that the meter complies with FCC regulations, but no FCC ID, there is probably no wireless transmitter inside.

PLC transmitters are not considered wireless (even though they radiate).  A PLC meter does not have an FCC ID, except when it also has a wireless transmitter (this author is not aware of any dual-transmitter analog meters).

The labels can provide other clues about hidden transmitters.  Any mention of “ERT” will mean a wireless transmitter.  Other keywords, such as “LAN”, “AMR”, and “Network” mean either PLC or wireless.

Look for labels identifying a vendor.  Meters with a Turtle PLC transmitter usually have a little turtle logo.

How it works

An electromechanical (analog) electrical meter has a rotor inside, which spins as electricity passes through the meter.  The rotor turns gears, which count the revolutions and turn the dials. This basic system has been used to measure electrical usage for about a century.

Some meters have a slot to insert a little circuit board with a transmitter.  The circuit measures the electricity by counting the turns of the rotor, which is often done optically with a little white dot on the spindle.  The circuit board then transmits back to the utility using wireless or PLC.

Are they smart meters?

The definition of a smart meter is usually that it has two-way communication.  Some of the stealth meters have such two-way communication, using TWACS or Turtle TS2.

Many stealth meters use simpler one-way communication, which has various names, such as ERT, AMR, “bubble-up”, “wake up” and Turtle TS1.

The health issues are essentially the same for all these technologies.
