“Let's stop criticizing our banks!”

More than ten years after the subprime mortgage crisis, all the light has not been shed, and yet the idea of ​​the guilt of the banks has taken hold firmly in people's minds. They are even blamed for the double fault, since after playing with fire and triggering the crisis, they allegedly asked for help from the States. This unanimous condemnation, the result of incomplete analyzes, is a heavy component of the bank bashing that has raged since then and unfortunately works against our interests. We are indeed at a critical moment when Europe, faced with the domination of American finance and the dollar, must develop its own financial capacities. The development of a strong pan-European financial sector is therefore essential if we particularly want to foster the emergence of future European gafas. 
If it is vain to hope for the complete disappearance of this bank bashing and, one might say, of the bashing market whose roots plunge both in history and in ignor…

5G: the impact of detailed electromagnetic waves

The National Frequency Agency has released its report measuring waves during 5G experiments in France. It puts forward reassuring results. While 5G must arrive in France this summer, many residents of France are worried about the effects of these new waves on their health. In an attempt to answer their questions, the National Frequency Agency (ANFR) has published a report on the exposure values ​​measured during several 5G pilot deployments in France. A document relayed by Clubic and whose results seem reassuring.

5G: the impact of detailed electromagnetic waves

The study thus concentrates on the experiments allowed via 5G antennas with orientable beams, in the 3.5 GHz band. A frequency which must offer an ideal compromise between coverage and speed across France. After ignition and without traffic, ANFR experts measured an average level of exposure in the 5G band at 0.06 V / m, with a maximum level of 0.36 V / m. This is far below the legal value, set at 61 V / m.

New indicator

The study also looked at exposure to the airwaves with continuous traffic. Again, the results seem to be reassuring. With the download of a 1 GB document, the level of exposure varies between 1.1 to 9 V / m depending on the operator. Thus, details Clubic, the experiment carried out by Bouygues Telecom in partnership with the equipment supplier Huawei made it possible to measure an exposure level at 0.1-0.2 V / m without traffic, at 1.1 V / m during sending the famous 1 GB file in a given direction, and at 9 V / m when the antenna transmits continuously and at full load in a given direction. Higher rates but which also remain well below the legal value.




The ANFR also clarified that this data collected would enable it to propose a new indicator centered on 5G. It should reflect "the average exposure created in the presence of traffic by 5G relays with orientable beams". More concretely, this index should make it possible to better measure the exposure of the French to the waves produced by this fifth generation.
