Big Banks Won’t Touch Crypto Clients – But These Smaller Banks Will

Cryptocurrencies undoubtedly bring new business opportunities. The expanding industry around digital assets and its customers need more and more services that traditional sectors can provide. Banking is often a bottleneck in the crypto space as most traditional institutions are still reluctant to get their feet wet. Smaller banks, however, are more willing to occupy this niche and reap the rewards...

Update on CA Family Kicked Off YouTube for Fighting Verizon 5G Cell Tower 45 Feet From Their Home

By B.N. Frank

Activist Post has been reporting about the Sacramento family trying to get Verizon to remove the 5G small cell tower next to their home. Other residents also aren’t happy about 5G AND 4G small cells installed throughout their community so the city council paid for a long-time industry funded expert, Jerrold Bushberg, to appease residents at a special “safety” meeting. Here’s Jerrold in this Cellular One promotional video from many moons ago ...

A Proposed Healthcare FREEDOM Rights Amendment To The U.S. Constitution: We Need It NOW; Work To Enact It

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Airbus Planes to Track Every Movement You Make – Including Bowel

By B.N. Frank

If the 60 Minutes Australia report about contaminated air making passengers and pilots sick wasn’t enough to make you stop flying, this just might do it.

From Bloomberg:

"Attention airline bathroom loiterers: The next generation of Airbus aircraft will track how long you’ve been in there. It’s all part of an effort to make commercial cabins a digitally aware domain. The program is Airbus’s bid to raise the Internet of Things — that buzz-phrase for connected household gadgets — to cruising altitude."...

Worried About Your Brain, Heart, Kidneys, Liver, and Nervous System? Your Energy Saving Light Bulbs May Be Poisoning Them

By B.N. Frank

Activist Post has published many articles about the dangers of Energy Efficient Light Bulbs (CFL, LED, HID). Mainstream Media sources have provided many warnings about them as well.

It’s unfortunate that they are still being promoted as safe considering how they are made with mercury and other very toxic ingredients.

Same Sh*t Different Day — Internet of Things Warnings from Security Experts Include Hacking, Death, etc.

Whether they know ahead of time or not, people who install Internet of Things (IoT) technology in their homes are choosing to live dangerously. Unfortunately, government mandated widespread 5G and IoT technology installation forces us all to live dangerously.

Musicians Team Up With Fans And Fight For The Future To Ban Facial Recognition Technology At Concerts

By Aaron Kesel

Several musicians and festivals are coming together to call to an end to concert promoters using facial recognition at venues and music festivals, Vice News reported.

Last year Live Nation announced it would begin deploying facial recognition at its concerts. The event organizer stated they would start having customers walk past facial recognition cameras instead of presenting their tickets, a horrifying first step for indoctrinating the public towards using the technology.

This has spurred Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Glitch Mob’s Speedy Ortiz, and a growing number of dozens of other artists and festivals to team up with digital rights activist group, Fight For the Future, in a campaign...

Lukewarm reviews for the iPhone 11 as new model remains more expensive than competitors despite price drop and three cameras and lack of 5G are 'not enough to wow buyers in China'

Lowered prices and three cameras may not be sufficient to attract consumers in the Chinese smartphone market to Apple's new iPhone offerings, analysts caution.

The three new models — the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max — remain more expensive than devices sold by local manufacturers.

In addition, the iPhone 11 series will not support high-speed 5G connectivity, nor will it offer the Chinese market support for Apple's Netflix-style streaming service.

State AGs Unveil Sweeping Antitrust Probe Against Google On Steps Of The Supreme Court

By Tyler Durden

In the latest legal push that could ultimately result in the break-up of one of the world’s largest tech firms, a bipartisan group of more than 40 state attorneys general, led by Texas’s Ken Paxton, will unveil a sweeping antitrust investigation against Google parent, Alphabet Inc.

The antitrust investigation, which was previewed late last week in a leak to the Wall Street Journal, aims to hold Alphabet accountable for the extreme concentration in the US technology industry. Specifically, the AG’s case will focus on Google’s influence in search and the digital advertising market, and whether the Silicon Valley giant’s overarching influence harms rivals and consumers...

How to Make Health Care Unaffordable and Inaccessible

By Bradley Thomas

Whether it’s Medicare for All or some other variant of a single-payer plan, the leading 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are in agreement that more government control will make health care more affordable and accessible.

The presumption behind these plans is that there is currently too much freedom in the health care industry, and only more state intervention will reign in costs and make health care more accessible to more people.

But the opposite is true...

Most Stable Linux Distros: 5 versions of Linux We Recommend

At the very beginning, I would like to mention why the term ‘Stable’ comes in relation to Linux OS or distro. Because there are thousands of Linux OS variations as per the user’s requirements. Some are very fundamental like Debian, some is a fork of a base distro like Ubuntu, Arch Linux and there are many fork-of-a-fork-of-a-fork like Linux Mint.

So all the variations do not comply in terms of well support and documentation from the Linux community. So Here we are going to list down the best stable Linux distros which are well known, well supported, have good repositories, are regularly updated, are user-friendly and will remain around us quite a time.

Zao’s Deepfake Face-swapping App Shows Uploading Your Photos is Riskier Than Ever

By Alexandros Antoniou, University of Essex

The latest photo app craze can make you look like a movie star. Zao uses artificial intelligence to replace the faces of characters in film or TV clips with images of anyone whose photo you upload to the app.

The effect is startlingly realistic and shows just how far this sort of “deepfake” technology has come. But it also highlights how great the risks have become of making your photos available online where anyone can use or abuse them – and the limitation of the law in dealing with this issue...

New Oregon Law Orders Review of Research on Health Effects from Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation Exposure

By B.N. Frank

Decades ago research determined that exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation is harmful. Since then more research has confirmed the same thing. This is being taken seriously outside of the U.S. already.

Unfortunately, current American guidelines, legislation, limits, and testing are VERY outdated and don’t apply to how most people use or are exposed to current wireless radiation emitting technology...

Drug Warriors Ignore Basic Facts to Push the Vaping Scare

By Ross Marchand

August was not a good month for harm reduction advocates striving to save the lives of millions of smokers.

Plan to Use Fitbit and “Smart” Home Devices to Stop Mass Shootings — But Might This Instigate More?

By B.N. Frank

In addition to the concept of surveillance for mental health and gun control, other concerns revolve around the health research of wearables and smart devices.

Research has also already determined that exposure to sources of wireless radiation disrupts the blood brain barrier which can cause it to leak and kill brain cells.  Research has also determined that this can reduce impulse control and increase the potential for homicide and violence.  So doesn’t making people who already have mental health issues wear wireless radiation emitting trackers and requiring them to install wireless radiation emitting “Smart” listening devices and sensors in their homes seems like a recipe for more disasters? ...

“There are many unknowns, and no certainties,” Dr. Orient concludes. “But the physician must strive to do no harm, not even in the guise of serving the collective good.”

Research Says Cell Phone Radiation Prematurely Ages Skin and 5G Irritates Eyes, Skin, Sweat Ducts, and More

By B.N. Frank

It’s bad enough that cell phones have been found to be 10X dirtier than a toilet seat. Last year Reader’s Digest reported “Warning, Cell Phone Addicts: Your Phone Is Aging Your Skin.” The article focused on exposure to Blue Light or High-Energy Visible Light (HEV) as the culprit but it’s not the only one.

Exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation (aka Electrosmog) can age us, too, and more than just skin deep. Dr. Magda Havas refers to this as “Rapid Aging Syndrome.”...

Up to 70 Energy Businesses and Advocacy Groups Spend Millions Lobbying In Massachusetts

By B.N. Frank

Lobbying isn’t illegal but most would agree that it has certainly created a lot of problems – mostly at the public’s expense, financially and otherwise (think Opioid Crisis).

Most wouldn’t be surprised to learn that telecoms spend big bucks on lobbying. Many may not realize that energy companies are heavily targeted by lobbyists too. Unfortunately, most Americans aren’t able to create their own energy, and having safe and affordable access to it can be a matter of life or death...

I Was a Physician at a Federally Qualified Health Center. Here’s Why I No Longer Believe Government Health Care Can Work

By Rebekah Bernard M.D.

And so, just a few weeks after taking my Family Medicine board exam, I headed off to my new job at a well-established health clinic in rural America, where my education on the role of government in health care began...

I couldn’t leave. You see, I had signed a contract with the government. As a National Health Service Corps scholarship recipient, I had agreed to work at a health shortage site for four years. In exchange, the program paid my medical school tuition. The penalty for breaking the contract was harsh: repay three times the tuition amount immediately or go to jail.

I was trapped.
