Blue Lake National Park

Blue Lake National Park was a former protected area in Queensland, located on North Stradbroke Island about 44 kilometres east of Brisbane. Blue Lake National Park is now a part of the Naree Budjong Djara National Park. Access was provided by road 9 kilometres west of Dunwich. In 1980, the national park was described as follows: Blue Lake is a watertable lake in the coastal sandmass of North Stradbroke Island; the National Park is included in the large North Stradbroke Island - Central Section Interim Listing. The statement for that listing places its values in a broader context. Although only small, Blue Lake contains a diversity of habitats & species, including: Blue Lake, a boomerang-shaped watertable window lake; such a wide range of features represents a large diversity of habitats. Five major vegetation types have been mapped in the Blue Lake National Park: mid-high to tall open forest/woodlands dominated by Eucalyptus signata, E. intermedia and E. planchoniana. The eastern tip of Blue Lake lies 1.75km from the ocean at which point a white-sandy bottomed, fast flowing creek with steep fern covered banks, carries the Blue Lake overflow down to Eighteen Mile Swamp.

Two creeks that flow permanently, a swamp, drain into the lake. The deepest parts of the lake reach around 11m in depth. Two crustacean species, three fresh water fish, one frog species, 12 insect species and one spider were found in the littoral of Blue Lake. Most of the littoral and planktonic insects found in Blue Lake are common and widespread throughout Australia; the conservation park was classified in 2008 as being an IUCN Category II protected area. In 1980, it was listed on the now-defunct Register of the National Estate.

Joel Moskowitz

Joel M. Moskowitz is a researcher on the faculty of the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, he has worked on public health issues that include cell phone risk, tobacco control, alcohol abuse. Since the mid 2010s, Moskowitz has been cited as an expert and quoted in national news media about the health risks of mobile phones, electromagnetic fields, related technologies, he helped the city of Berkeley, California to draft an ordinance mandating safety warnings on cell phones. In 2018, Moskowitz won the James Madison Freedom of Information Award for his work in bringing to light publicly unknown California Department of Public Health guidance documents about cell phone safety. Moskowitz was educated at Rutgers University, University of California, Santa Barbara, served as a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University in evaluation research and methodology; as of 2019, Moskowitz is Director and Principal Investigator of the Center for Family and Community Health at the University of California, Berkeley.

Since 2009, Moskowitz has been disseminating research on wireless technology, public health and policy. Moskowitz coauthored a 2009 meta-analysis of 23 studies of mobile phone usage and risk of tumors, which concluded that studies with low bias revealed "possible evidence linking mobile phone use to an increased risk of tumors." The Los Angeles Times quoted Moskowitz a few days after the publication of the meta-analysis as stating that he "went into this dubious that anything was going on.... But when you start teasing the studies apart and doing these subgroup analyses, you do find there is reason to be concerned." A few months Moskowitz's work was mentioned in the Huffington Post by prominent epidemiologist Devra Davis, who stated his findings concurred with other research, that "the French are not waiting for further research on this matter, are taking steps based on the notion that it is better to be safe than sorry", that she and Moskowitz and "experts from a number of countries" agreed with the French approach.

Moskowitz wrote an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle stating that nine nations had issued precautionary warnings about mobile phones, arguing that "it is time for our government to require health warnings and publicize simple steps to reduce the health risks of cell phone use". In 2015, the city of Berkeley, passed a "Right to Know" law that mandated electronics retailers to warn customers about cellphone hazards. Moskowitz had been involved in creating the law and had testified in its support, his views were covered in Mother Jones and CNN. Moskowitz described the law as "a crack in the wall of denial.... Look at what happened in 1977 with Berkeley’s smoking law: Things looked pretty bleak, but that led to a national movement." CNN reported that Moskowitz was involved in creating the new mobile phone law, quoting him as stating that the new law's information disclosure requirement went beyond previous regulations by "stating that children and anyone carrying their phone in a pocket or bra could be at increased risk of radiation exposure."

In 2016, Moskowitz sued the State of California to force disclosure of mobile phone safety guidelines that it had prepared, but never released. Moskowitz's requests for copies of the guidelines had been denied in 2014; the two-page guidelines included statements that the electromagnetic fields emitted by mobile phones "can pass deeper into a child’s brain than an adult’s," and that "The brain is still developing through the teen years, which may make children and teens more sensitive to EMF exposure."The California Department of Public Health released copies of the guidelines on March 2, 2017, after a Sacramento Superior Court judge indicated she would order their disclosure, after the state was told by the San Francisco Chronicle that it was publishing news coverage of the case. Stanton Glantz, a prominent researcher on the health effects and control of tobacco, described the history of Moskowitz's legal fight on his blog, noting that the presiding Superior Court Judge Shellyanne Chang tentatively "overruled eight of the nine objections submitted by the state," and directed release of the guidance document.

But before the judge could issue her final ruling, the CDPH emailed the 2014 version of the cell phone use guidance document, entitled "Cell Phones and Health," to a San Francisco Chronicle reporter... The two-page fact sheet was marked: "Draft and Not for Public Release." In her final ruling dated March 13, 2017, http://bit.ly/MvCDPHfinal, Judge Chang ruled the document is not a draft, ordered it to be released to Dr. Moskowitz without the "Draft" markings. Moskowitz had viewed the stamping of the document, according to KPIX-TV, as "essentially creating a new document rather than producing the document as-is." Moskowitz's legal victory was noted by media that included the Boston Globe, where he was quoted with reference to the possible withholding of information by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, as well as by The Mercury News,KGO-TV,KCRA-TV, the Huffington Post. A few months after Moskowitz's legal victory, on 13 December 2017, the California Department of Public Health released an official guidance document about cellphone radiation, characterized in Huffington Post as an "updated version of the documents the public health department released under pressure."

With regard to the new official guidance document, CNET quoted Moskowitz as stating that "although California's new cell phone warnings underplay the state of the science, many people consider this action by the largest state public health department to be a significant development," and that he "would like to

Monte Sant'Angelo

Monte Sant'Angelo is a town and comune of Apulia, southern Italy, in the province of Foggia, on the southern slopes of Monte Gargano. Monte Sant'Angelo as a town appeared only in the 11th century. Between 1081 and 1103, Monte Sant'Angelo was the capital of a large Norman dominion under the control of Count Henry, a vassal of the Byzantine Empire; the grotto which houses the Sanctuary of Saint Michael the Archangel where according to legend, St. Michael appeared in 490, 492 and 493, has been the site of many famous pilgrimages, which started from Mont Saint-Michel. Pope John Paul II visited the sanctuary in 1987. In the 17th century the city became part of the Kingdom of Naples, to which it belonged until the unification of Italy in 1861. In 2019 archaeologists of the Ludwig Maximilian University announced that they have uncovered traces of a Hellenistic temple dated to the 2nd B. C. and multiple cisterns. The most important attraction of Monte Sant'Angelo is the Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo, built in the 13th century by Charles I of Anjou.

On June 25, 2011 the World Heritage Committee added the Sanctuary of San Michele Arcangelo in Monte Sant'Angelo to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Sanctuary is one of the seven groups of historic buildings included in the World Heritage Site "Longobards in Italy. Places of the power". Other sights of Monte Sant'Angelo include: The Castle, with bastions of different ages; the most ancient part, called Torre dei Giganti is a pentagonal tower 18 metres high, with walls 3.7 metres thick. The first news on its history dates back to 979. Emperor Frederick II restored the construction to use it as residence for his mistress Bianca Lancia, while under the Angevins it was used as prison. From 1464 to 1485, the fortress was the residence of the exiled Albanian condottiero Skanderbeg; the castle was rebuilt in the late 15th century by Ferdinand I. According to a legend, the castle is home to the ghost of Bianca Lancia, whose sighs can be heard in winter time; the Tomb of Rothari, a baptistery dating back from the 12th century accessible from the 18th century of St. Peter.

The portal has notable reliefs with Biblical stories. The name of "Tomb" is a misspelling of the Latin term Tumba, meaning "dome"; the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. The façade has a baldachin portal with sculpted frames; the interior has two aisles, divided by columns with sculpted capitals. The walls have Byzantine-style frescoes. Pulsano Abbey, at 8 kilometres from the city, it was built in 591 over a Pagan temple and was destroyed by an earthquake in 1646. Monte Sant'Angelo's economy is still based on agriculture and breeding. A certain tourist importance is related to the presence of the Sanctuary of Saint Michael the Archangel; the majority of the working population own farmland, raise cattle, run bakeries, restaurants, or stores. Stores and businesses are family owned; the population of Monte Sant'Angelo remains small due to lack of employment in town. Young men leave to find work elsewhere. Due to this the majority of the population is elderly. Monte Sant'Angelo can be reached by road through the Foggia-Monte Sant'Angelo SP.55 provincial road.

The SP.89 provincial road passes through the frazione of Macchia.
