Creative Journey workshop 2

 5THE FM’s newsonline wattlerangenow

A weekend Workshop exploring the theme ‘ My Creative Journey ‘ was held in Mount Gambier recently with great success. Presented by Millicent artist Peter Dunn, it was attended by eight participants at The Old Stables venue, a heritage listed building in Suttontown Avenue. Participants were from a variety of creative backgrounds and came from both Port Fairy in Victoria as well as various local towns. The workshop was supported by the South East Arts Society as part of its ongoing use of The Old Stables venue to promote workshops and classes of interest to many in the region.
With a background in both the helping professions and the creative arts Peter reports that his passion is in guiding people to explore and fulfill their creative potential.
” So much of our world relies on imaginative and creative ideas being used in all fields, and yet…

Smart meter health surveys show striking symptom similarities

Originally posted on Stop Smart Meters Australia:

Two recent studies into the health impacts of wireless smart meters show striking similarities, despite having been conducted independently of each other and on separate sides of the world.  One survey was conducted in the USA and the other, a peer reviewed study in Victoria, Australia.

Both reports list insomnia as the most commonly occurring symptom and, of the top 10 symptoms, the same 8 symptoms appear in both reports.  These symptoms include headaches, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), cognitive disturbances (memory, concentration, confusion), fatigue/weakness, dizziness, cardiac anomalies and neuropathy.

Steve Weller, Vice President of SSMA Inc., in an email to ARPANSA says, “If EHS was purely psychological as some experts suggest, it would mean that approximately 37,000,000 Europeans, 16,000,000 Americans and more than 900,000 Australians are suffering from ‘some kind of mutual mental disorder or illusion‘.  If we were really serious about investigating this issue we would conduct…

HAARP Still Stands, Geoengineers Still Wreaking Havoc

Featured Image -- 6473

Originally posted on GLOBAL ELITE TV | ALTERNATIVE MEDIA:

In the spring of 2014, the power structure and mainstream media tried to convince an ever more concerned population that there was no climate modification going on and as proof they cited the claim that the HAARP facility was going to be “bulldozed”. Some of us never bought into the smoke and mirrors about HAARP being torn down, and as we now see, it is still standing. The climate engineering insanity continues to decimate our planet as the weather makers try desperately to hide the damage already done by further ramping up the very programs that caused much of the damage in the first place. The frantic attempt to cool down some of the most populated regions in the US is ongoing. Jet stream manipulation and toxic chemical ice nucleation are the two primary tools being used to create the temporary surface cold zones in a rapidly warming world. The…

The case series was compiled using de-identified data collected by Steve Weller B.Sc.

It reveals that the most commonly reported symptoms from exposure to wireless smart meters were (1) insomnia, (2) headaches, (3) tinnitus, (4) fatigue, (5) cognitive disturbances, (6) dysesthesias (abnormal sensation) and (7) dizziness; and that the effects of these symptoms on people’s lives were significant.

mural fosters Mural by Peter Dunn at Fosters Foodland

by S Lowe 5THE FM newsonline wattlerangenow

A new mural painted by Peter Dunn, was installed on the wall of Fosters Foodland supermarket complex this week.

Mr Dunn said in a statement to 5THE FM/wattlerangenow:-

“After some years of exposure to the weather, it was deemed time for an existing mural to be replaced.”

The original mural was erected in 2004 and was part of a Tidy Town project.

With the initial groundwork by Martin Sullivan and generous sponsorship from Fosters Foodland, Millicent based artist Peter Dunn has produced a large wall mural with a wetlands theme and today Peter praised the way the mural has turned into a collaborative effort.

While being an imagined wetland scene, Peter says it was also inspired by time spent at Lake McIntyre and the connection between people and nature that our own natural attraction has become known…

Amelia Hill – EHS and MCS

eremophila:

An inspiring story. It’s way past time for the medical profession to stop denying EHS and MCS and to respond appropriately to people in this situation. We’re the Canaries who try to warn the rest of the population of the dangers of the chemicals in the environment and the effects of the massive amounts of electromagnetic smog out there.

Originally posted on Stop Smart Meters Australia:

Amelia Hill, former feature writer for national magazines such as House & Garden and Real Living Magazine, is allergic to the 21st century and is virtually living inside a bubble in her parents’ home.  Amelia not only suffers from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), but also multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS).  These two sensitivities often go hand in hand, giving the sufferer a double whammy.  The sufferer is left unable to cope with not only electromagnetic radiation, but also various chemicals which may be present in items such as a toothpaste, clothing and vehicle exhaust fumes.  Symptoms of EHS often appear at a different time to MCS.

Amelia’s story:

Despite people like Amelia suffering from EHS, power distributors and the Victorian Government continue to claim that people do not suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity – it is merely a figment of the imagination!

Reading and Writing and Waiting.

eremophila:

A gold star for attitude!

Originally posted on Anna Blake:

007 (640x435)In a counter-intuitive way, it’s a huge accomplishment to get my first rejection letter today. It means at least someone saw one of the submissions. Yay, me! In the meantime, I’m writing.

I get hooked by books, and by that I mean, jerked out of the water like a slimy big mouth bass with my fins and tail twitching, and my mouth opening  to breathe in air, when I’m used to water. I love a fish-out-of-water book that hooks me deep. With each new read, I hope it happens again.

It’ a challenge to cross the line from reading to writing. Some authors have such skill and vision that I worry I might defile them somehow when I scribble down an idea or sit at the keyboard. But still I take my seat, intimidated by an unwieldy combination of insecurity and hubris, grasping for the first words. Yes, the same…
