The Port Authority in the Welsh town of Milford has installed a "Mosquito" -- a sonic weapon that produces tones that are mostly perceptible to children and teenagers -- at the library, where it has been used during opening hours.
The Mosquito is an extraordinary device in that it generates tones that can only be heard by a certain demographic -- a demographic without the political clout to advocate for itself -- and is used as an antipersonnel dispersal tool in public places. Try to imagine a similar tool that only affected women, or men, or gay people, or black people, or Asians, and you quickly understand what a monstrous thing this is. Also, think of the collateral damage to infants and toddlers, who can hear its tones even more acutely than teens, but lack the ability even to articulate the sensation that's causing them distress.
Remove the Mosquito Device from the Library building! It has been active in the day for months, off during the day currently but is faulty and is under human control and so human error so could come on again and cause damage!
The Mosquito device is an audio weapon (youth deterrent) that emits a high frequency noise that can only be heard by young people and those with sensitive hearing.
Remove Mosquito Device/Audio Weapon from Milford Haven Library!
When I was a kid, I was terrified of farting in class. At home, it was no big deal: it was a daily fart festival with my family. But at school? TOTAL FEAR OF FLATULENCE. But then it dawned on me: EVERYBODY FARTS. And that’s one of the reasons why I’ve decided to write a graphic novel about how our bodies work. It’s about all the stuff that goes on inside our bodies daily, or throughout our lives, and that this stuff – whether it’s digestion, or respiration, or defecation – is necessary for us to live. And it gives you excellent come-back material if anyone teases you for farting in school!
At Launa Hall’s public school, they do regular “lockdown” drills with all the kids, including her 4- and 5-year-old kindergarten students, who have to be crowded into a locked closet and convinced to stay silent without terrifying them so much that they start crying.
In Madison alone, 1,000 black children were arrested in 2013, but only 3,247 black children live in Madison.
The Lytro Illum dares to be different, boasting even more robust features than its first generation predecessor and a sleek design reminiscent of professional DSLRs. What’s so cool about it? Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing a statoc 2D image.
