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)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

There appears some good news from explorers on the frontier of resilience and MS.

Professor Kevin Alschuler, a co-author of a major study and associate professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine has discovered specific behaviors enhance resilience and quality of life for MS patients.

How Resilience Training Can Help People With MS 

  • Be flexible. “Be open to thinking about solutions to a problem or ways to cope with a challenge that might be new or different,” Alschuler suggests.
  • Maintain social connections with family and friends. “People with stronger support networks develop stronger resilience,” Sullivan points out. “You have to work on having stronger relationships and being able to accept help from others.”
  • Understand the ideals that make your life meaningful. “It’s more than bouncing back from adversity. It’s bouncing back to doing the things that are meaningful to you, Professor Alschuler explains. “When you have those targets and you bounce back, you can get refocused and regain your drive.”
  • Have a game plan. Be prepared for a situation so that you’re ready to face a challenge when it arises.
  • Take good care of yourself. Focus on well-being, energy conservation and stress reduction.
