- At the May 3rd Common Council meeting, White Plains Common Councilmembers passed amendments to the White Plains Telecom Code, which was last visited in 1997 before 5G close-proximity cell installations were on the landscape.White Plains Common Council will vote on a new telecommunications code regarding the installation of new “small cell” antennas required for the deployment of 5G technology. The proposed code is said by some critics to be weak, providing no protections for residents. It enables telecoms to install their powerful cell antennas next to homes, schools, play areas and houses of worship in residential neighborhoods exposing residents especially children to nonstop radiofrequency radiation. Critics of the proposal advise that many of these concerns raised will leave the City open to potential liability because the giant telecoms promoting 5G technology have been unable to obtain liability insurance against health claims. Concerns about potential health problems have been growing since a 2018 study by the National Institutes of Health that found that exposure to RF radiation – the kind emitted by wireless antennas – caused an increase in cancer and DNA damage in lab animals. The ten-year, $30 million dollar study was the most comprehensive ever conducted, and was designed to determine whether or not such radiation could cause biological harm. The results confirmed thousands of smaller, independent studies. Even though a revised Transcript of Proposed Enhanced Telecommunications Code for City of White Plains has been published by WPCNR, why the last minute change; is there a basis for urgency? If so, what is it. And lastly, does the White Plains Common Council membership have the technological acumen to override insurance carriers not willing to sell liability insurance with respect to this technology?

Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst/Pundit speaks to the following issues/concerns:
- Headlines inform of higher prices headlines…
- Some are tied to commodities. Lumber prices are at a new high … an epic home-building boom. Copper and steel prices reaching new records
- On the agricultural front the price of corn is at its highest level since 2012. Soybean prices as well.
- Consumer products. Diaper prices have gone up in the past year. Kimberly-Clark and Procter & Gamble warn that hikes are to be expected. Shortages of computer chips are helping to push up car prices, and could soon do the same for electronics and household appliances.
Is this a passing phenomenon analogous to the economic shock of 50 years ago or a sustained trend that evokes the 1970s? Despite the Federal Reserve being unequivocal that it believes inflation will be transitory. Is that a “hope or reality”? If the Federal Reserve recognize and inflationary rise would that undermine the government and set a new tone for the economy?”An episode of one-time price increases as the economy reopens is not the same thing as — and is not likely to lead to — persistently higher year-over-year inflation into the future,” Fed Chair Jerome Powell told reporters late last month. “Indeed, it is the Fed’s job to make sure that that does not happen.”
2. The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline jumped 6 cents over the past two weeks, to $3.02 per gallon. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday that the increase came as the costs of crude oil and ethanol also rose. Ethanol must be blended by refiners into gasoline, per federal rules.
The price at the pump is $1.05 higher than it was a year ago. The highest average price in the nation right now is $4.16 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area. The lowest average is $2.55 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.The average price of diesel is up 2 cents over the same period, to $3.16.West Can the economy recover with this projected reality immersing itself in the present and stirring angst for our collective future?
