    I've read exerts from that before,  I have never really read anything from the ieee so how serious they are about good science I wouldn't know, but it does look like it isn't peer reviewed and the conclusions of their study and the conclusions from cited articles do not line up terribly well.  This may simply be a contextual thing or something more problematic i.e one study concluded that the research into the health and safety of EMR was well founded and implemented adequately by many countries/companies.  They on the other hand are trying to claim a danger exists beyond that/ in spite of that because of a comment in that study..
     
    Also some of their testing doesn't tell us anything new. 
     
    The thing is with a lot of this stuff, like most contended material in this day and age, is that just because you can find one or two articles that say X is bad (even from prestigious institutions) doesn't mean that the current consensus says that.    There are literally millions of research studies published from all over the world on lots of topics,  the vast majority of them are preliminary and concentrate on observations.  This means you can find a legitimate peer reviewed study that shows a link between most things.  The point of their existence is foundation work for the next study, they are not intended nor used as a foundation for making claims of causality.  This is where the original problem of "cherry picking" comes from, people who wade through 100's of published studies until they find one that says what they want and then use it to support their personal research.  Now I am not saying this ieee article is exactly like that, but we have to remember that ieee is not in the same rigorous league as nature or the lancet et al when it comes to peer review.   There is room for this article to be wrong without actually being wrong (if that makes any sense).

    It is true that in a certain frequency range (I think 53 GHz to something in the 60s GHz), oxygen absorption does occur (which is stated in relevent 3GPP documents on radio wave propagation). For those signals, this causes further attenuation that has to be taken care of.
    It is important to remember that there is plenty of oxygen between any transmitter and your body and also that the higher the frequency, the harder it is for electromagnetic radiation to reach a certain depth inside of an object (e.g. your body). The amount of power that penetrates your body decays exponentially with the depth with a certain characteristic length that decreases with increasing frequencies. Bascially this means that for high frequencies, the radiation cannot go further into your body than a very small surface layer (except for minute amounts).

    milliwatts to watts where humans are involved,  100+ watts from a distance. 
     
    There are guidelines OH&S for power limits where EM radiation is concerned.  I believe it is something like 200Micro watts per CM2 for the population.  Which basically equates to cell towers only working at a round 10-20watts total and cell phones working below 2 watts.   Obviously the further away or higher the tower the higher it's wattage van be without changing the power readings on the ground.

    We have 3 types of ionizing radiation, Alpha, Beta and Gamma. And both Alpha and Beta are so weak that they are blocked by short distance of air (Alpha) and just the skin (Beta, again at very short distances). Only way to get affected by these is to ingest them. They cannot affect your from the outside. And we're talking actual ionizing radiation which is the most problematic because it damages DNA in our cells which causes you to basically fall apart cell by cell over time and eventually die. It's only Gamma that penetrates through all tissue and materials except those with huge atomic mass (like lead or tungsten) or huge amounts of it (like incredibly thick concrete walls).
     
    Now, with radio waves, only radiation they deliver is non-ionizing and is usually manifested as heat. Microwaves are specifically tuned in frequency range that excites water, sugar and fat molecules the most in order to heat up food efficiently. And it does that at very high wattages. We're talking 600-1000W.
     
    For example, in home environment, devices are limited to values measured in milliwatts (mW). In USA I think routers can have up to 1000mW (1W) of antenna power and in Europe lower, at only 100 mW (0.1W). To put it into perspective with some real world examples, 600W cooking top can easily boil water in minutes. Trying to affect water with 1W heating element would probably never heat it up to anything as the water would cool itself down as you'd be heating it up. It's the same with our body. Tiny amounts of accepted radiation that converts into heat within our body is dissipated through the mass of our body and when there are too big deviations, our body's active measures are activated and you start to sweat and evaporation of sweat on your skin surface cools you down. So you can't really get "cooked" by radio waves that affect us in a thermal way unless we're talking 600W of highly focused radiation like in microwave oven which is again specifically tuned in a frequency range that excites water molecules the most and does that at very high wattage.
     
    There are some questions regarding radio frequencies and their effect on nervous system, heart and brain and other processes in body which involve electric impulses. In general they shouldn't be affected, but we just don't know real long term effects and they can also highly variate between people and usually affect them in a way they get a headache when in extended presence to a certain signal. It's not lethal or damaging, even long term, but can cause discomfort when present. Problems usually go away when they distance from it. That's about as much as we know it MAY have effect on us, but I don't remember any serious long term studies in this regard.

    Macrium Reflect does everything for you. It'll clone the source drive. If your Source drive is your main C drive, then how your C drive looks, your new drive will look like that. If your new drive is bigger (ie: old drive is 250GB, and new drive is 500GB), there is an option to extend whatever partition you want. There are some vids that show you how to do that.

    I’d argue that if you give enough of a fuck to address the issue in the first place, then you care to some extent. People normally use the “addressing it doesn’t mean you care” scapegoat to trash anyone and anything they don’t like by implying that they didn’t actually give enough of a fuck, but giving enough to address it is enough to care; at least to me, anyways.

    I don't care what people think, if they go to the trouble to respond it is because they care, whether they acknowledge that or live in denial is up to them.  I spend a lot of time addressing things on this forum.  It is because I care,  I care about misinformation being spread (personal bug bear), I enjoy discussions on certain topics that can get quite heated. The actual topic can be a little grey for me (both in care and relevance) but if the discussion is taking a direction of absolutes or pandering to a misconception then it is the discussion I care about more than the topic.   
     
     
    Long story short, people will say/believe  whatever they want to avoid taking responsibility for being wrong or to question an ideal they might have.

    The phone doesn't have to be submerged in the rice as long as it's in the same container. The whole point is that rice will absorb the moisture from the air, not that it has to be touching the phone.
