Title: EM.news/quick

 [cleaning out the e-mail/urls, as the electronetwork.org
 website will be moving to a new server at the same host,
 to limit liability by keeping the site in the commercial
 sector, so that if this project raises a bit of a ruckus,
 the webhost will not be embroiled in similar problematics.
 as things are a bit, well, very very slow these days, the
 site will be moved, and slowly it will try to change into
 a better designed site. but in the mean-time, a rather sad
 site might be there, as softwares are limited for designing
 a new graphical site at the moment. so it may be a simple,
 text based site which will experiment with the structure
 outlined in Phase1 of the EM .EDU Initiative (EEI) which
 was recently posted, and is linked to from the main page.
 so, an update, and hopefully upon learning a bit of PHP
 scripting and how to hookup a mySQL database, the links
 and databases will become possiblities for growing content.
 thanks for EEI comments from those who shared ideas. bc]


 1- {this one is quite difficult to sort out, but i think it is
 that Finland has a standard for EMF/radiation exposures which
 is higher if not the highest of most countries, or the .us in
 particular, which i think doulbed one of its rates (may have
 been EMFs or nuclear exposure rates, seemingly out of nowhere)}.


Radiation from mobile phones causes changes in the brain which could pose risks to health, an authoritative two-year study has concluded.

The strange triumph of electronic music
By Andrew John Ignatius Vontz


"...More generally, what some critics of electronic music don't (yet) understand or acknowledge is that the absence of words provides the opportunity for narratives that transcend the boundaries of language to be built in much the same way that narratives are built in jazz and classical music. Trance, house and jungle, for example, all use builds, instrumentation and sampling to greater and lesser degrees to create powerful transporting narratives. In this way, dancers in such disparate locales as the Moroccan desert, the beach in Tel Aviv, Ibiza, the Ministry of Sound in London and Giant in Los Angeles are all able to connect to the same track. Language and image are no longer barriers; the only musical language that matters is the language of tension, release and dynamism implicit in the construction of electronic music. "
