  1. I second Gabriel Garcia. He's very good and will even come to your house. 333 368 1915. He's an MD and homeopath also.
  2. Computer guy, what kind of screens do you recommend?
  3. Yes, DSL and internet lights all on. I turn off my modem every night, so that should reboot it daily. I guess I should've said that my wifi signal was strong instead of internet signal. Anyway, today I got to log onto my email, and other websites that had been affected were also available again. Hurray!
  4. I have internet service but have not been able to get to email accounts as well as several websites since Saturday. Is anyone else having problems? I can't get on protonmail at all. I am also having trouble making vonage calls, but internet signal is strong.
  5. Is there a high quality brand of MCT oil available Lakeside? (Bulletproof brand or comparable made entirely from coconuts, no lauric acid....)
  6. [There's always a killjoy. Sorry.] The Dangers Of 5G – 11 Reasons To Be Concerned The USA is currently leading the way on 5G. At the June 2016 press conference where the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) head Tom Wheeler announced the opening up of low, mid and high spectrum’s. There was no mention of health effects whatsoever. But the dangers are real. Thousands of studies link low-level wireless radio frequency radiation exposures to a long list of adverse biological effects, including: DNA single and double strand breaks oxidative damage disruption of cell metabolism increased blood brain barrier permeability melatonin reduction disruption to brain glucose metabolism generation of stress proteins Let’s not also forget that in 2011 the World Health Organization (WHO) classified radio frequency radiation as a possible 2B carcinogen. More recently the $25 million National Toxicology Program concluded that radio frequency radiation of the type currently used by cell phones can cause cancer. But where does 5G fit into all this? Given that 5G is set to utilize frequencies above and below existing frequency bands 5G sits in the middle of all this. But the tendency (it varies from country to country) is for 5G to utilize the higher frequency bands. Which brings it’s own particular concerns. Here is my review of the studies done to date – 11 reasons to be concerned. #1 – A Denser Soup of Electrosmog We’re going to be bombarded by really high frequencies at low, short-range intensities creating a yet more complicated denser soup of electrosmog – as this diagram shows. Source: Latest on 5G Spectrum – EMFields Ltd. To work with the higher range MMW in 5G, the antennas required are smaller. Some experts are talking about as small as 3mm by 3mm. The low intensity is for efficiency and to deal with signal disruption from natural and man-made obstacles. #2 – Effects on the Skin The biggest concern is how these new wavelengths will affect the skin. The human body has between two million to four million sweat ducts. Dr. Ben-Ishai of Hebrew University, Israel explains that our sweat ducts act like “an array of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths,” meaning that we become more conductive. A recent New York study which experimented with 60GHz waves stated that “the analyses of penetration depth show that more than 90% of the transmitted power is absorbed in the epidermis and dermis layer.” The effects of MMWs as studied by Dr. Yael Stein of Hebrew University is said to also cause humans physical pain as our nociceptors flare up in recognition of the wave as a damaging stimuli. So we’re looking at possibilities of many skin diseases and cancer as well as physical pain to our skin. #3 – Effects on the Eyes A 1994 study found that low level millimeter microwave radiation produced lens opacity in rats, which is linked to the production of cataracts. An experiment conducted by the Medical Research Institute of Kanazawa Medical University found that 60GHz “millimeter-wave antennas can cause thermal injuries of varying types of levels. The thermal effects induced by millimeterwaves can apparently penetrate below the surface of the eye.” A 2003 Chinese study has also found damage to the lens epithelial cells of rabbits after 8 hours of exposure to microwave radiation and a 2009 study conducted by the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Pakistan conclude that EMFs emitted by a mobile phone cause derangement of chicken embryo retinal differentiation. #4 – Effects On The Heart A 1992 Russian study found that frequencies in the range 53-78GHz (that which 5G proposes to use) impacted the heart rate variability (an indicator of stress) in rats. Another Russian study on frogs who’s skin was exposed to MMWs found heart rate changes (arrhythmias). #5 – Immune System Effects A 2002 Russian study examined the effects of 42HGz microwave radiation exposure on the blood of healthy mice. It was concluded that “the whole-body exposure of healthy mice to low-intensity EHF EMR has a profound effect on the indices of nonspecific immunity”. #6 – Effects on Cell Growth Rates A 2016 Armenian study observed MMWs at low intensity, mirroring the future environment brought about by 5G. Their study conducted on E-coli and other bacteria stated that the waves had depressed their growth as well as “changing properties and activity” of the cells. The concern is that it would do the same to human cells. #7 – Effects on Bacteria Resistance The very same Armenian study also suggested that MMWs effects are mainly on water, cell plasma membrane and genome too. They had found that MMW’s interaction with bacteria altered their sensitivity to “different biologically active chemicals, including antibiotics.” More specifically, the combination of MMW and antibiotics showed that it may be leading to antibiotic resistance in bacteria. This groundbreaking finding could have a magnum effect on the health of human beings as the bandwidth is rolled out nationwide. The concern is that we develop a lower resistance to bacteria as our cells become more vulnerable – and we become more vulnerable. #8 – Effects on Plant Health One of the features of 5G is that the MMW is particularly susceptible to being absorbed by plants and rain. Humans and animals alike consume plants as a food source. The effects MMW has on plants could leave us with food that’s not safe to consume. Think GMOs on steroids. The water that falls from the sky onto these plants will also be irradiated. A 2010 study on aspen seedlings showed that the exposure to radio frequencies led to the leaves showing necrosis symptoms. Source: https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijfr/2010/83627 Another Armenian study found that MMWs of low intensity “invoke(s) peroxidase isoenzyme spectrum changes of wheat shoots.” Peroxidase is a stress protein existing in plants. Indications are that 5G will be particularly harmful to plants – perhaps more so than to humans. #9 – Effects on the Atmosphere and Depletion of Fossil Fuels Implementation of the 5G global wireless network requires the launching of rockets to deploy satellites for 5G. These satellites have a short lifespan which would require a lot more deployment than what we’re currently seeing. A new type of hydrocarbon rocket engine expected to power a fleet of suborbital rockets would emit black carbon which “could cause potentially significant changes in the global atmospheric circulation and distributions of ozone and temperature” according to a 2010 Californian study. Solid state rocket exhaust contains chlorine which also destroys the ozone. The effects on the ozone are thought to be worse than current day CFC exposure. Google’s Project Loon is said to bring Internet to rural and hard-to-access areas by using helium balloons. But these balloons only have a 10-month lifespan. We’re looking at a lot of helium being used here, more than what we can possibly have on Earth? #10 – Disruption of the Natural Ecosystem Since the year 2000, there have been reports of birds abandoning their nests as well as health issues like “plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship and death,” says researcher Alfonso Balmori. Bird species that are affected by these low levels, non-ionizing microwave radiation are the House Sparrows, Rock Doves, White Storks, Collared Doves and Magpies, among others. But it’s not just the birds. The declining bee population is also said to be linked to this non-ionizing EMF radiation. It reduces the egg-laying abilities of the queen leading to a decline in colony strength. A study conducted by Chennai’s Loyola College in 2012 concluded that out of 919 research studies carried out on birds, plants, bees and other animals and humans, 593 of them showed impacts from RF-EMF radiations. 5G will be adding to the effects of this electrosmog. #11 – Most 5G Studies Mis-Leading 5G will use pulsed millimeter waves to carry information. But as Dr. Joel Moskowitz points out, most 5G studies are misleading because they do not pulse the waves. This is important because research on microwaves already tells us how pulsed waves have more profound biological effects on our body compared to non-pulsed waves. Previous studies, for instance, show how pulse rates of the frequencies led to gene toxicity and DNA strand breaks. article at electrisense.com/12399/5g-radiation-dangers/
  7. I agree with Ferret. It's not pretty to sit under, and you will also get bits of foliage and insects dropping on you now and then. And my experience with jasmine is that the "fragrance" is way too powerful. Many people are allergic to strong fragrances and got a headache at my place. It was the dickens to get rid of, too!
  8. I use a Capital One card and the ATM at CI Banco in the Laguna Mall (and there is a guard there, too, who will actually come to your aid in case of attempted robbery. (He chased down a guy in the parking lot who had taken a woman's money as she was going to her car several months ago). The cambio at CIBanco is not as good as a year or so ago, but in the past 4 mos, I've gotten within 12 cents of what was posted on XE.com, and the worst has been a 22 cent difference.. Ooops one at 30 cents. Once I got 14 cents better than what XE showed and once 2 cents better.
  9. Lili is the best EVER! And she really cares about getting you well. She was an ortho surgeon, who spent 6 yrs studying massage when she started developing glaucoma since that would preclude continuing her surgical profession. She does great therapeutic massage and KNOWS the human body. Others lakeside spend 3 mos studying and then proclaim that they are experts in multiple types of massage. If you speak Spanish, you can contact her directly: 331-262-0724. You could even use google translate and text her a message. If not, for your first appointment call the Hotel Perico, and they will set you up with an appointment: 333-142-0012 (I think) or hotelperico.com.mx. You won't regret going to her. She charges 400 pesos for a full hour of great massage...totally nude (you, not she....lol) but covered with a towel. She will get into that big piraformis muscle deep in the buttocks if you need that--she's not a big woman but strong! She has helped me soooo much!
  10. I highly recommend Beatriz. She does a great job; your pets will love her; she loves all animals except gators, and she has excellent references. She is fluent in Eng, Span, Fr, dogspeak, catspeak, and will also take really good care of your plants. Contact for Beatriz Socorro Castillo Castellanos is beatrizsocorro2@gmail.com Get your spot reserved early!
  11. If plates end in an 8, is September the month for smog check?
  12. Upscale Resale in Riberas. They get good prices for the things you bring in, and I think they tend to have nicer things than some of the other bazaars.
  13. What I don't like is that the OWN your DNA once you send them your sample. What might someone do with it one day? Just Google something like "designing DNA specific bio-weapons" and you get statements like this one: "The Atlantic reports that experts in genetics and microbiology are convinced we may be only a few years away from the development of advanced, genetic bio-weapons able to target a single human being based on their DNA. I can only imagine the attacks this comment is going to bring upon me! I know, it's a bit far out, but, hey, it could happen. They could target an entire ethnic group as well as individuals.
  14. Has anyone mentioned that ilox will be using CFE poles from Joco to here, not underground conduit. Thus, it's vulnerable, and Lyle admitted that vulnerability in a reply to a question from one of the audience members. I don't think most people heard that. That would not keep me from signing up, but the fact that I'm a renter in a gated community that thought they could run lines above ground on existing walls does discourage me. The homeowners own those walls, and not everyone thinks that's an okay thing to do.
  15. My friend Beatriz at beatrizsocorro2@gmail.com is available now til June 15 or 16 and the first 2 weeks of August and then again beginning in September. She loves all animals (except gators), and they love her. She also does a great job with plants. Excellent references. She is honest and dependable, fluent in English, Spanish and French, educated in US and Canada, lives in San Antonio Tlayacapan. Contact her at her email address above. You won't regret it!
  16. Dan M, How do you check the ATM rates? I can find their rates at the window, but not at the ATMs.
  17. Sorry Earl. I had to delete your recommendation about real estate agents, even though I agree with your recommendation. This web board is sponsored by a Real Estate Company and one of our rules is that we never publicly post recommendations about Realtors on this Forum. You can, of course, send said information as a private message on this Board. Mod5 But I agree with those who say to rent first and get to know the area and where you might want to live and not want to live. That said, rentals are getting harder to find; however this is the low season, so there is more availability. I am sending you a PM (private message).
  18. I figured it out. Thank you all anyway.
  19. Alas, I should've closed this account long ago! Now it seems that I cannot get to my email without accepting the new Oath agreement. Is there a way I can bypass this to get to my email and address book and close this account without accepting Oath's "privacy" agreement whereby they store all incoming and outgoing mail, etc?
  20. Contact Beatriz: beatrizsocorro2@gmail.com She has excellent references, educated in US and Canada, fluent in Eng, Span and French, loves animals.
  21. Beatriz Socorro does excellent medical translating and used to do this for medical patients in the US. She is fluent in English, Spanish and French, educated in US. She would be happy to assist you. You can contact her at beatrizsocorro2@gmail.com
  22. At Open Circle 2 or 3 months ago, the gentleman who does demographic studies of Lakeside said that the Anglo population here is now 75% baby boomers (many of the older ones have died off) and that as the boomers keep coming, the infrastructure will be stressed to the point that those who can afford to leave, will. He cited internet issues as being one of the main problems that will cause frustrated people to leave. Of course, there are also the issues of traffic (with no good solutions to remedy the congestion), electricity, sewage, water... I, too, applaud Michael2595's post. Good job! I, like others, am here for the long haul. You can't beat the climate and other plusses for the price!
  23. I have a plastic partial for 3 missing teeth. I didn't want anything metal in my mouth. It was inexpensive and works great...from Dental Express, and they make them right there and takes a day. I was going to get zirconia implants because it's a ceramic material more biocompatible for me than titanium, non-corrosive, hypoallergenic, etc (see Google), but I decided against providing an avenue for potential infection or reactions, especially upper jaw, and my sinuses are also very close to the jawbone.
