6 Gulf Daily News Wednesday, 28th January 2015 This can be one of the most potent times for some while, as far as your ingenuity is concerned. You’re rarely backwards in coming forward in terms of bright new trends, but there’s another side of you that can be rigidly adhered to what you know. Now is a time to truly embrace novel new approaches and attitudes. There’s been something of a dichotomy recently for you, Pisces. Your career may have stuttered under the weight of expectations, even those of someone you’ve been dealing with, and with Mercury twisting backwards in your sector of secrets, you may have felt isolated. Now a major breakthrough is entirely possible. Mercury continues to twist backwards, but it is forging a fantastic alliance to Uranus. And it’s possible that something you had looked at before but then discounted could actually start to come back into play. Futuristic ideas of any kind can do particularly well. Equally, some new and exciting friends could enter your orbit. Someone you haven’t heard from in a long time could get in touch, completely unexpectedly and you can be delighted to hear from them. This might not be someone in a social context as they could be linked to your work. However, they may have some exciting news for you. Even an old job application can come alive again. Your ruler Mercury is influenced brilliantly by Uranus. Any kind of futuristic idea, technology or people who have a real appetite for ground-breaking approaches, can stoke your curiosity. The chance to go on a last-minute journey somewhere is also possible. This could be part of a group of friends, or with one special one. The Moon is emphasising the need for co-operation today, and if you can, try to keep everybody in the loop with your plans. If you’ve been waiting for news on a property matter, a financial payout or some kind of legacy, and there’s been a delay, a flash of insight could well throw up a way in which you can tackle this. However you’re feeling today Leo, the chances are it’ll be more difficult to disguise it from other people. The good news is that with Uranus combining with Mercury, a fresh insight into a relationship issue suggests that your mood can actually be upward. A frank exchange of opinions may also be possible today. If you’ve found yourself changing your domestic routines somewhat – good for you. After all change is as good as a rest. But you may not limit yourself to just this one area of life, because a fresh innovative approach could be applied to your work and even finances, so even if it seems daunting, do be open to this. Someone may have seriously frustrated you in the romantic context, and proved to be rather unreliable or changeable of late. However, this needn’t pan out in a negative way and the surprises today could be entirely positive, even pleasant. You might also find yourself having a complete change of mind about one person. The more you can listen to other people, the better your relationships with them will be. There can be a tendency at the moment to be rather subjective about your closest ties. The bigger picture is that now there’s an opportunity to look at yourself, and how you interact with others, in a new light. Your mind can be a font of creativity. This may see you coming up with fantastic ideas, and even if there’s something you’ve been grappling with which is proving hard to solve, now you could have some kind of breakthrough. You may also find yourself being fascinated by anyone with the confidence to be truly different. Take a look around your abode Capricorn. Are there items in it that you no longer use? If so, this would be the ideal time to de-clutter. Creating more space in your home environment, could also go side by side with some kind of reorganisation. With some lateral thinking, you can improve the flow of energy in your home. Column spot on! refers to the article by Anwar AbdulTdo..?”HIS rahman “Where now after Charlie Heb(GDN, January 22). I always read with great interest Mr Abdulrahman’s articles, and I would like to say that he is always spot on with his views, and so he is again with this very new article. Please allow me to express my opinion in my own simple words. The world order is out of balance. We are living in a non-caring society, and, therefore, when man runs out of words, he picks up a gun. However, I do not agree with killing people for any given reason, and France (Charlie Hebdo) should think twice before publishing offensive cartoons. It is a dangerous mix, and has nothing to do with freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of Press. Christina Mobiles worry OBILE phone masts are everywhere in M Bahrain. They have to pay a fee to place the mast in an area if it is granted, which communications companies easily bypass by placing them on top of houses and buildings or in gardens paying a monthly fee of BD500 (that was offered to me). It is considered private property.

People living close to mobile phone masts (base stations) frequently report symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity such as dizziness, headaches, skin conditions and allergies, the mechanisms of which are only just beginning to be understood. There is also growing anecdotal evidence for cancer clusters forming around them. However, we are regularly told by the mobile phone industry that these base stations are safe because their microwave radiation falls off rapidly with distance and is far too low to generate significant heat. Microwaves have the power to burn human tissue and the eye is particularly susceptible. The US Food and Drug Administration warns that you shouldn’t stand directly against your microwave while it’s heating your food.

One short-term study found significant and disturbing changes in the blood of individuals consuming microwaved milk and vegetables. Eight volunteers ate various combinations of the same foods cooked in different ways. All foods that were processed through the microwave ovens caused changes in the blood of the volunteers. Haemoglobin levels decreased and over all white cell levels and cholesterol levels increased. Lymphocytes decreased. A scientific test that can be done by children, take two plants and water one with microwaved water that is cooled down, the other with kettle boiled and cooled down water. Each time the result is the same. The plant watered with microwaved water dies. Do scientists know everything about mobile phones and health? No, and research is continuing. Mobile phones have only been widely used for about 20 years, so it is not possible to be so certain about the safety of long-term use. More research on the effects of mobile phones on children is also needed, as they are 1964 - Riots break out in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia. 1983 - Labour group Solidarity’s underground leaders call on Poland’s factory workers to prepare for nationwide general strike as “the only way to break down the existing dictatorship.” 1986 - Space shuttle Challenger explodes moments after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, Florida, killing all seven crew members. 1990 - Life in Azerbaijani capital of Baku returns to normal as Armenian and Azerbaijani separatists withdraw from border regions. 1991 - Soviet troops seize and shut down two Lithuanian customs posts. 1992 - Leadership of National Liberation Front, which won Algeria’s independence and ruled for three decades, resigns. 1993 - France’s ambassador to Zaire is killed by a stray bullet as soldiers riot and loot shops and foreigners’ homes in Kinshasa. 1994 - Three Italian journalists are killed by a mortar shell in Mostar, Bosnia. 1995 - In the bloodiest day in Egypt’s Islamic insurgency, police shoot to death 14 suspected militants, and extremists kill two policemen and two civilians.
