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)

Medical Education and Resilience

Traditionally, the development of resilience has not been as part of the basic curriculum in major medical schools in the U.S. However, this is changing, as the costs of burnout to the healthcare system are rising.

Traditionally, the development of resilience has not been as part of the basic curriculum in major medical schools in the U.S. However, this is changing, as the costs of burnout to the healthcare system are rising. One commentator notes: “The odds are high that burnout will strike every healthcare professional at some point.” Burnout in this sector alone currently costs the U.S. $ 17 billion. The cost of replacing a burned-out physician is 500,000, meanwhile, malpractice costs are rising as patient care from provider burnout declines. Education in resilience is increasingly recognized as an essential part of preparing healthcare providers for the daily stresses of a deeply challenged healthcare system.
