This project will use the best available measurements of sleep and physiological activation responses to a range of different noise types to carefully test noise impacts on sleep macro-structure (sleep stage distribution and wake time during the sleep period) and sleep micro-structure (brief arousal and physiological activation responses). Participants who take part in the (CATI) and consent to being contacted about potential further involvement in this project, may be approached to take part in this phase of the study. Residents . . .

Published in Australia in October 2018 by Spinifex Press, Berni Janssen’s powerful expression of the traumas wrought by industrial wind turbines on the land, its life, and human neighbors is now more widely available: in April via IPG and in June at Amazon. Reviews have been glowing. Janssen uses a variety of forms that convey the many voices she presents. She masterfully weaves life and politics and nature in all its complexities. This book, its poetic language, its emotional intensity, . . .

These are the issues you should educate yourself on. 1. Property values Not many people want to live within an industrial installation so the value of your home will be diminished severely. The Berkley study they will bring out is flawed. 2. Electromagnetic and frequency . . .
