SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

55+ Generation: The Silver Tsunami

There are over 30,000 residents of Santa Barbara over the age of fifty-five. Contrary to what is generally supposed, resilience does not necessarily fall off with aging.

There are over 30,000 residents of Santa Barbara over the age of fifty-five. As this generation ages, the medical, social, and economic costs of treating and caring for this population will easily outstrip the present health care facilities, including Cottage Hospital and the Sansum Clinics.

Contrary to what is generally supposed, resilience does not necessarily fall off with aging. In fact, studies conducted by NASA confirm that resilience can increase with age until very late in life, and there is a strong correlation of resilience with longevity.

In collaboration with the Center on Successful Aging and Adventures in Aging, Big Heart Technologies is launching a pilot 12-month study involving 75 participants with the goal of enhancing integral resilience, targeting associated measurable outcomes for loneliness, caregiver burnout, and hypertension. As there is strong clinical evidence that all three are closely related, it is hypothesized that positive results in any one will be transferred and multiplied in the other two.
