Using a mobile phone before going to bed could stop you from getting a decent night's sleep, A research suggests.
A study That was carried out by Sweden's Karolinska Institute and Wayne State University in the US suggests radiation from the handset can cause insomnia, headaches and confusion. This study is the most comprehensive and was funded by the cell phone industry. Published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium and funded by the Mobile Manufacturers Forum, representing the main handset companies, it has caused serious concern among top sleep experts over the "more than sufficient evidence" showing that the radiation "affects deep sleep".
The scientists concluded: "The study indicates that during laboratory exposure to 884 MHz wireless signals components of sleep believed to be important for recovery from daily wear and tear are adversely affected."( Read the whole study)
Could there be some truth?Well,I recall one time I received a 13 minute call before going to bed and I couldn't just explain what happened after.All I know was ,I was having headache.How I got the headache I still don't know.Could there be a link between the 13 minute call and the headache?
Well,if I can refer to the study,then I think I now know the answer. Here is a Thermographic image of your head after a 15 minute call
.Could the same have happened to me after the 13 minute call?

May be I'm electro sensitive or maybe I'm not but one thing I will be doing is to minimize the cellphone radiation exposure.And from the study suggestion
"This research suggests that if you need to make a phone call in the evening it is much better to use a land line, and don't have your mobile by your bedside table."

Have you ever woken up early in the morning only to feel some swollen lymph nodes on your body or even swollen lips or eyelids??Well,there is a need to worry.You need to visit your nearest hospital as you might have been a victim of the 'Kissing Bug'.
Kissing bug has been present as from early as the 1880s.In 1889,The washington post called it an epidemic on its headline.The chagas disease brought about as a result of the kissing bug was killing many people as at the time.It

was presumed that in the event that you had swollen eye lids ,lymph nodes e.t.c then you were suffering from the disease.It was an epidemic.This prompted a widespread witch hunt for the kissing bug.The efforts proved successful and they succeeded in purging the kissing bug.
However,in 2005 there were cases of the kissing bug again.Its very hard to know the time of the infection since it can take years for the chronic aspect of the disease to be realised. The bug emerges at night when the victim -to- be is asleep.

when you wake up and happen to scratch the site of the bite causes the trypomastigotes to enter the host through the wound.
() Once inside the host, the trypomastigotes invade cells, where they differentiate into intracellular amastigotes . The amastigotes multiply by binary fission and differentiate into trypomastigotes, which are then released into the bloodstream. This cycle
is repeated in each newly infected cell.(source:wikipedia)
So this continues in a while till the day the host meets his or her death either through heart failure(due to the enlargement of the ventricles) or brain damage.
During the day, the kissing bug hides in crevices in the walls.Time to do a thorough search for them.

Walk around the streets on a normal day and you'll never miss to come across s
omeone with earphones,earhooks or even headphone.Its sad many peoples way of life is now built around these accessories.It’s socially acceptable to have a cell phone and be contactable 24/7.Which brings my question,aren't we risking brain tumors and even cancer?
OFFER!!!! BIZNERATI SEASON 001[FULL COMPILATION]
I had plans of purchasing a Bluetooth headset since I felt it would make my life much more easier but after learning of the dangers associated with bluetooth technology I quickly ditched the plan.I learnt that by using the Bluetooth stereo piece,one is being exposed to cell phone radiation and bluetooth radiation being emitted by the Bluetooth headset. You’re better off using a wired headset than a wireless one.
Then I quickly had to drop the habit of using my earphones in answering incoming calls.
Also it depends what your headphones are connected to.Since answering calls using your wired headset could increase your exposure to cell phone radiation.Most wired headsets Wire has metal in it.

This metal conducts the radiation coming from your cell phone allowing it to travel up the wire and into your head while receiving your call.
Risk factors for cancer and tumors caused by radiation sources are directly proportional to exposure levels.I find it weird how the more we embrace the gadgets coming into our hands,the greater our lifespan reduces.

Ever been a victim of of MITM ?I Have been a victim three good times.This has happened on my twitter account.The first time i logged in i was taken to undesired webpage and a disturbing message on it which read [b]
WHOAA.THE PAGE IS NO LONGER VALID.SEEMS SOMEONE HAS USED THE TOKEN[/b] .
First time i didn't know what this meant .I later found out a couple of weeks later that this was a man in the middle attack.What if i could have been doing an online banking transaction i would probably been paralysed by
now.Man in the middle attacks have proven to be a success.The atm fraudsters are stopping at nothing ..Remember
http://wp.me/s3dLIv-234 ,How the banks were caught
unaware.To jog your mind a little bit,the fraudsters used spyware and keyloggers to steal confidentialbanking information of the potential victims to later use it on him or her.Many banks lost billions..You can read it all on the link provided
above.This latest style may give the banks the wake up call and make the banks step up their game to enhance secure
transactions.Peep my next post
Remember when there was a DDOS attacks on WordPress sites? here is the link in case you missed .
DDOS (Distributed Denial Of service) attacks can result in Heavy financial drains,especially if they’re launched against the website of a company that relies heavily on online service for its business operations. However, as far as hacktivist attacks are concerned, I don’t know of any operation relying on DDOS attacks that has made a difference, one that has influenced political or business decisions.
For instance, a few years ago, Anonymous hackers ( Operation payback) launched a massive DDOS attack against PayPal after the company decided to stop processing donations to WikiLeaks. But paypal did not change its stand on the issue.
Then there was the Mega upload Ddos attack.DDOS attacks were launched but mega upload site was never brought up.Should DDOS attacks be considered legal or no?
In my own view,i think These types of attacks should be
treated as legal as they are a form of protesting against justices just like ‘occupy’protest.
Picture this,a business company is acting unfairly to its customers,legal means have been used to deal with the issue but the business company is not able to stoop low to the suggestions being
made.What do you do?A ddos attack is launched and after that the business will have
changed its way of operating.Feels like blackmail?From the company's perspective.There have been massive ddos attacks in the recent past.Remember the
wordpress ddos attack?
Another massive campaign that relied on DDOS attacks
was the one launched against several US government and anti-piracy outfits after the shutdown of Mega upload in January 2012.While this was one of the biggest DDOS
attack operations launched by hacktivists,no one
said “OK, let’s restore Megaupload
because people are unhappy.”
.However,whats peculiar is the aftermath of ddos attacks?There is always no change.Its time ddos be taken seriously and be recognised if its done on a right purpose not a selfish purpose
