Compilation of Important EMF Information
By Angela Flynn I've been searching through thousands of emails over the last 3 years and have compiled quite an impressive collection of events/news on the EMF/RF front. Below you will find the 2011 through March 2012 section. I will send out the 2009 2010 section in about a week. Things are really moving here. There are thousands of websites - I have not attempted to collect all of them, but that would be a good project too - and it is almost impossible to keep up with the news. I am sure what I have collected is missing items (Esp. in articles and videos sections.) so if you happen to think of one please send it to me so that I can incorporate it in. This is a work in progress, but feel free to share it in part or whole. I will eventually upload to Scribd, but in the meantime I can send this in MS word docs. I have it separated into different documents for each category. ~ Angela Angela Flynn

Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way." Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder
