The Soapbox is a collection of personal pages that are used for letting off steam...!
Have you ever wondered about things that are blatantly wrong with the world - things that you would love to change, but can't? Here are some of mine.
There is a lot of discussion about the possible effects on health of exposure to non-ionizing radiation - electromagnetic fields. Every so often this subject comes up because of something in the news. Currently it is the 5G roll-out. I have my own theories on this matter.
The Theory:Non-ionizing radiation is absorbed by the hemoglobin-oxygen complex species and results in an as yet unidentified short-lived excited state chemical species that has the ability to cause genetic mutations and other damage.
I have presented a detailed analysis of the problem here. Please click on the link above and take a quick look.
New Physics For Old There is fantastic news for those looking for a better theory of the Universe.
Why do so many people struggle to pronounce the word 'nuclear'?
ex-President George Bush used to say Nu-kew-ler. There are many others who do. There are also many people who seem to stutter when they get to the word... Most odd!
A lot of the things that bug me occur when I feel that I am a victim of capitalism. Too often, we are treated like idiots by big companies. I get this feeling when I look at my steam iron at home...
We all know what a child's car seat looks like and when we have two young children we have to spend a lot of money on them. But when the children grow big enough not to need them any more, we must either sell them or take them to landfill centres. (Do they get recycled? I think not.) So how about this terrible waste of plastic material?
Did it ever occur to you that no car is sold that is able to accommodate a child? Isn't that weird? Cars have every gadget and adjustment you can think of, but they cannot seat a child. Isn't it about time that changed?
