Catching rabies in Penang

Catching rabies is possible in Penang. Unlikely, but possible. It used to be a rabies free state, but over the last few years, not. One of the local street dogs is over friendly. He’s fully grown, but still a puppy. Yesterday morning he was over-excited, and I was bitten and scratched by him. And this drew blood. Asking around after this I found the dog’s owner took no responsibility for him, and the dog hadn’t had any anti-rabies vaccinations.

Digital detoxing

I continue with my digital detox. For want of a better word. By digital detox I mean:

  • Minimise exposure to EMF –
  • Turn on Wifi only when I really need to and turn it off as soon as possible
  • Use 4G on my phone as little as possible – otherwise have it on airplane mode or at worst, just to receive calls and texts
  • Work towards dumping my smartphone in the future
  • Try to stay away from WiFi – very difficult as it is everywhere (we once thought that was good)
  • Use my computer – which uses a wired connection – in preference to any wireless connection devices
  • Replace Bluetooth keyboard with a wired one – my mouse was already a wired one
  • Buy blue light blocking glasses to wear when using the PC and other devices
  • Turn off electricity as much as possible at night in the bedroom
  • Gradually move from using the services of large corporations to smaller ones that do not collect my data – often meaning paying for the services.
  • Keep location service off on my phone except when I am using it – last month I turned it on only for Grab – so my monthly report from Google as to my movements was almost blank. Progress!
  • Use social media rarely – I achieved that over a year ago, anyway
  • Try to spend more time in nature without my smartphone.
  • Find out what the governments here are planning to do with regards to 5G
  • Avoid airport full body scanners – so far so good
  • Learn more about 5G and how to shield myself from the damage of EMF

we need to dump the Smartphone

It really is soon getting time to dump the smartphone. It’s been fun. And very convenient. And we love our phones, I know. I don’t want to dump the smartphone. But there are big consequences if we don’t. So how do we do it? (And to read my free “truth” newsletter, click here.)

The future – if we don’t dump the smartphone

But let’s look at the future. At the endgame. If people don’t dump the smartphone, what is going to happen? But dumping it may not be enough. Furthermore, r.ejecting 5G may not be enough.

Let’s look at the worst case scenario that we can imagine at the moment. Now, I don’t know if any or all of these things are going to be imposed. However we do get hints from China and India, among other countries, that they will.
