The Setauket Fire District will hold its annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 7:45 p.m. The event will take place at the district’s 9/11 Memorial Park, adjacent to the firehouse located at 394 Nicolls Road in Stony Brook. According to the fire department’s public information officer Bob O’Rourk, one of the features this year is the rebuilt waterfall portion of the memorial park’s pond. The original waterfall has been repaired often, and the owners of Sound Shore Pond offered their services to rebuild it for free. A double waterfall from the pond surrounds a piece of steel from the World Trade Center. The 9/11 Memorial Park also includes two trees planted in 2016 that were seeded from the 9/11 survivor tree located at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center and a stone monument inscribed with the names of those lost on 9/11. Among those who will be remembered are Thomas Dennis of Setauket, who worked for

Car crashes into East Setauket pizzeria

Pizza lovers hoping for a slice at one East Setauket restaurant had to go elsewhere this Labor Day weekend. John Fornino, owner of Via Pizza & Pasta, said he was standing at the restaurant’s kitchen door at approximately 3:25 p.m. Sept. 1 when he heard an explosion of glass. He said his first reaction was to cover his head, and when he looked up he saw an SUV stopped just short of the counter. Fornino said the vehicle came through the window, and in addition to the window being shattered the front wall was damaged. The SUV knocked over tables and chairs inside the pizzeria, but he said no one was inside or in front of the business. According to the Suffolk County Police Department, the 71-year-old female driver was treated at the scene and did not need further medical attention. Fornino said he didn’t talk to

the driver but he could see she was distraught. Two Town of Brookhaven building inspectors and a fire marshal were on the scene shortly after the incident, according to Kevin Molloy, a town spokesman. While it was condemned during the Labor Day weekend, he said after a visit by a town fire marshal and inspector Sept. 4, the building was deemed safe for public use.

so and hearing my grandparents’ stories of their families, it left me with a deeper appreciation for my ancestors. Then, of course, there were the differences in our preferred styles of music, which in later years has only enhanced my knowledge of songs from a wide array of eras. There were plenty of Sundays watching “The Lawrence Welk Show,” many New Year’s Eves with Guy Lombardo and his orchestra playing in the background, and even a few nights singing along with Mitch Miller and the Gang. My grandparents’ house was also where my creative side was nurtured. After my grandfather retired as a sheet metal worker from the Brooklyn Navy Yard, he took up oil painting. I remember watching him at his easel, and I still have a few of his creations, including one he started when I first moved in. He would sit with me and help me with my school projects and taught me how to draw houses, trees and faces. While my creative talents may have developed in another way through writing, I don’t doubt for a second that being able to think creatively through drawing helped with my craft. I lost my grandfather when I was 18 and my

Despite that being decades ago, I still find myself many times in life saying, “Grandma was right about this,” or “Grandpa was right about that,” though I would shake my head at some of the advice when I was younger. Many years later, I’m glad their advice and the memories live on. So, thank you to them and all the grandparents who make a difference in the lives of children.

It felt like the middle of summer outside, but Three Village Central School District students were back to hitting the books Sept. 4. The children had a lot on their minds on the first day of school. Hannah La Polla, a kindergartner at William Sydney Mount Elementary School, was looking forward to seeing her teacher Dawn McNally and riding the bus, according to her mother, Tara La Polla. Then there was 10-year-old Jordyn Zezelic a fifth-grader at Nassakeag Elementary School whose eyes were on the future. She said she was

Man rescued from LI Sound in Setauket A man spent 45 minutes treading water in the Long Island Sound Sept. 4 after being knocked off his small boat by a wake, according to Suffolk County police. The man was rescued from the water after his unoccupied skiff was spotted floating in the Sound. Marine Bureau officers Cory Kim and Gregory Stroh responded aboard Marine Delta after a fisherman reported finding an unoccupied skiff floating in the Long Island Sound at about 12 p.m. Tuesday, police said. While officers were responding to that call, a 911 caller reported a person yelling for help in the water off Old Field

Road in Setauket. Officers Kim and Stroh located the man, Wen Zhong Wang, 37, of Ronkonkoma, approximately 1/10 of a mile from shore. Wang, who was not wearing a life jacket, had been in the water approximately 45 minutes after he was knocked off his 9-foot skiff when it was hit by wake from a passing boat. Wang was transported to the Port Jefferson boat ramp where he was evaluated by Port Jefferson Ambulance personnel and released. The fisherman towed the boat to shore where it was secured by the Port Jefferson Harbormaster.

SBU trio named to ocean acidification task force Stony Brook University will be well represented on the new state Ocean Acidification Task Force examining the effect of acidification on New York’s coastal waters. The legislation was drafted by Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket), chair of the Assembly Standing Committee on Environmental Conservation. The university has three representatives on a 14-member team that will explore the impacts of acidification on the ecology, economy and recreational health of the coastal waters, while also looking to identify contributing factors and make recommendations to mitigate the effects of these factors. Englebright said he was pleased to have the SBU representatives on the task force. “We have these extraordinary scholars and researchers at the university who have a lot to contribute, and I hope that we’re able to listen closely to their advice regarding new policy and potentially new law to protect our coastal ecosystem and marine water.” Larry Swanson, associate dean of the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences will join Malcolm Bowman, distinguished service professor and Carl Safina, endowed research chair for nature and humanity, both also from SoMAS. The task force, which will have its first meeting some time in September at SBU, was signed into law in 2016 and is operating under the direction of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and the New York State

rapid pace amid the increasing output of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Since the industrial revolution more than 200 years ago, ocean acidification has increased by about 30 percent, as absorbed carbon dioxide is converted into carbonic acid. The rate of change of ocean acidification is at a historic high and is 10 times faster than the last major acidification, 55 million years ago, according to a press release announcing the formation of the task force. The task force, which will allow the public to provide input through a website it is developing and at its meetings, will focus on gathering existing data about the waters in and around Long Island, collecting additional information and offering the New York State Legislature suggestions for future policies. The group will “figure out how to make science into policy-ready proposals,” said James Gennaro, chair of the task force and deputy commissioner at the DEC. Gennaro is pleased with the composition of the group. “We have some of the best people in ocean acidification science who will be part of the process,” Gennaro said.

Island Sound, as well as the New York Bight which is a curved area from Long Island to the north and east, and includes areas south and west to Cape May, New Jersey. Some of the questions Swanson said he believes the group will explore include, “Can we measure changes based on what we know from historical information, how bad are those changes and what are the likely consequences?” Improving the ecology of the ocean doesn’t have to be at the expense of the local economy, and vice versa, Swanson suggested. Indeed, New York’s marine resources support nearly 350,000 jobs and generate billions of dollars through tourism, fishing and other business. “We have a very significant shellfish industry that’s potentially in jeopardy,” Swanson said. “We need to understand what ocean acidification is doing to that industry. We can do things like control effluent going into the Great South Bay and Peconic Bay.” Protecting and preserving the environment will “have a payoff” for the economy, Swanson added. While the problem is global, monitoring agencies should oversee local impacts, Swanson and Gennaro agreed. “This is very much a local water, coastal water, embayment improvement initiative,” Gennaro said, who added he is “eager” to get started. The task force will meet no less than four times. The public will be able to follow the task force on the website that SBU and the DEC are creating. It is “imperative to do all we can to make sure we stay ahead of [and] act on” ocean acidification, Gennaro said. Swanson suggested that local action can have consequences. People sometimes suggest that whatever policymakers do in New York will be a drop in the bucket compared to the overall problem of ocean acidification. “If that’s the drop that causes the bucket to overflow, that’s an important drop,” Swanson said. “We can certainly make suggestions that we ought to do things on a national and global level.”

Port Jefferson Harbor is undergoing an algal bloom caused by hot temperatures and excess nitrogen, a dangerous occurrence for marine life.

PJ Harbor experiencing rust tide, endangering marine life Safety blueprint adopted by superintendents across Suffolk

Members of the SCSSA executive board meet with Suffolk County law enforcement officials and lawmakers to discuss its five-point Blueprint for Action to Enhance School Safety Aug. 27.


Port Jefferson Harbor is currently undergoing an alarming phenomenon that an expert called “uncharted territory” locally. The harbor is currently experiencing a rust tide, or an algal bloom, caused by a single-celled phytoplankton. Rust tides don’t pose any harm to humans but can be lethal to marine life. Christopher Gobler, endowed chair of Coastal Ecology and Conservation at the Stony Brook University School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, said rust tides are spurred by hot air, water temperatures and excessive nutrients in the water, especially nitrogen. The Gobler Laboratory at SBU, named for the chairman, is monitoring the situation, performing research into its specific causes, and is looking for solutions to reduce nitrogen loading and thus the intensity of events like these, according to Gobler. He said he has been studying the phenomenon on the East End of Long Island for about 12 years, but this is only the second time it has occurred in Port Jefferson Harbor. “We never had these blooms even on the East End before 2004,” Gobler said. “Now, they occur pretty much every year since 2004 or so.” Blooming rust tides typically start in late August and last into mid-September. However, as water and global temperatures continue to rise, Gobler said there are a lot of unknowns. He said this is one of the hottest summers he has ever witnessed regarding the temperature of the Long Island Sound, adding that temperatures in the local body of water have increased at a rate significantly faster than global averages.

“The big issue is temperature, so these blooms tend to track very well with warmer temperatures,” Gobler said. George Hoffman, a co-founder of Setauket Harbor Task Force, a nonprofit group which monitors and advocates for the health of the harbor, said his organization saw some early evidence of a rust tide in Little Bay while conducting biweekly water testing Aug. 24. Little Bay is located within Setauket Harbor, and within the larger Port Jefferson Harbor complex. Hoffman said the task force’s readings suggested salinity levels and water temperature were within the parameters needed for the growth of a rust tide. Rust tide is caused by cochlodinium polykrikoides, according to a fact sheet compiled by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management. The single-cell phytoplankton may harm fish and shellfish because it produces a hydrogen peroxide-like compound that can damage their gill tissue. Fish can avoid these dangerous blooms by simply swimming away. Fish and shellfish harvested in areas experiencing rust tides are still safe for human consumption. Gobler said the installation of septic systems capable of removing more nitrogen in homes, especially that fall within watershed areas, would go a long way toward reducing hazardous algal blooms. Suffolk County has taken steps in recent months to increase grant money available to homeowners interested in installing septic systems with up-to-date technology capable of reducing the amount of nitrogen discharged into local waters. In addition, members of the New York State-funded Center for Clean Water Technology at SBU unveiled their nitrogen-reducing biofilter April 26 at a Suffolk County-owned home in Shirley.

BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Superintendents in Suffolk County are trying to get their schools all on the same page when it comes to safety. Following the particularly deadly school shooting — though just the latest in a long line of similar occurrences — that took place in Parkland, Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, which resulted in 17 fatalities, discussions about concrete steps to enhance safety for students and staff in buildings from coast to coast have been seemingly unending. In Suffolk County, school officials have teamed up to release a five-point blueprint of actionable steps, officially recommended by the Suffolk County School Superintendents Association Aug. 27 to local, state and federal lawmakers. The superintendents are calling on lawmakers to invest in the School Resource Officer program, providing additional officers in Suffolk County schools; adopt legislation that enhances campus safety, including amending the New York State Criminal Procedure Law dealing with setting bail; make the NY SAFE Act the law of the land; support the social, emotional and mental health of children through screening programs and education initiatives; and provide institutional support to finance school safety, calling for the state to initiate school security aid and to exempt school safety expenditures from the tax-levy limitation. “While school safety has always been a top priority, following the horrific massacre at Col-

umbine High School in Columbine, Colorado, and the tragic events that followed, the importance of a strong working relationship between the police, mental health providers and public-school officials has become more important than ever,” the association said in a press release. “The SCSSA plans to continue to work together with Suffolk County law enforcement and local, state and federal legislators to turn these plans into actions that will improve school safety and the safety and wellness of all students in Suffolk County.” In August, representatives from Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit organization that was founded by parents from the Connecticut elementary school to carry out its mission of preventing all gun-related deaths, held a forum for the association and law enforcement officials. The purpose of the meeting was to share details about four programs they’ve created aimed at preventing violence in schools. The four strategies, which fall under the nonprofit’s Know the Signs programs, are taught to youth and adults free of charge in the hopes of fostering an environment that empowers everyone in the community to help identify and intervene when someone is at risk. Superintendents who were in attendance from several local districts pledged to further examine Sandy Hook Promise’s programs and to take steps toward implementing them. During an exclusive interview with TBR News Media in July, Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr. (D) said creating countywide standards for school security is a priority for his department.

On hate and immorality



Letters to the editor

In favor of newspapers Newspaper publishers, editors and staff members across the country — especially weeklies operating on tight budgets — are breathing sighs of relief. Last week the United States International Trade Commission overturned President Donald Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on Canadian newsprint, and we couldn’t be happier. The tariffs that the U.S. began charging this year caused many newspapers in the country to cut staff or paper sizes — in some cases both — to absorb the rise in newsprint costs. Other publications closed their doors as the additional expense was the breaking point for many outlets, making it impossible to continue operating in an environment already riddled with challenges in a changing industry. The overturning of this tariff, besides creating a sigh of relief, has demonstrated the balance of power in our country at work. Many have expressed fear about how much power a president may have or think he has, but our forefathers were visionaries. Declaring their independence from England, they knew a monarchy wouldn’t work in the U.S. All levels of government, from federal down to local, are designed with checks and balances in place in the form of executive, legislative and judicial branches. The president may want something to happen — in this case to impose a tariff — but that doesn’t mean that senators, congressmen, judges and federal agencies have to agree with him. And if they don’t, they have the power to make sure that a bill or an edict doesn’t go forward or remain in place. Speaking of our Founding Fathers, they ensured the U.S. Constitution contained an amendment to aid in protection of the free press. It was written to allow journalists to fairly report on events and happenings without government interference. This enables reporters the freedom and ability to keep a close eye on what elected officials are up to. Imagine if weekly, in most cases local, newspapers needed to continue to absorb the newsprint tariff. We presume many more would suffer, and as each one folded, regional and national outlets would be left to try to pick up the slack jumping into areas local news reporters know inside and out. Or worse: No one would pick up the slack. If the press runs into an issue like this again — government decisions directly impacting our ability to do our jobs effectively — we as an industry have shown there is strength in numbers. In a show of unity, Aug. 16, hundreds of papers in the U.S. published similar editorials voicing displeasure over the president’s disrespectful treatment of members of the press dating back to his campaign. The goal was to make it clear that the press wasn’t the enemy of the people. As your local press, we are thrilled to continue to serve you in the years to come. Letters … We welcome your letters. They should be no longer than 400 words and may be edited for length, libel, style and good taste. We do not publish anonymous letters. Please include a phone number and address for confirmation.

Susan Perretti was given the privilege of writing a Your Turn column for TBR News Media, July 12. Sadly, she used that opportunity to blatantly mislead her audience regarding the true nature of her actions at the campaign kickoff of U.S. Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley), June 28. Far from Susan’s grandiose portrayal of a victimized citizen, we learned she was part of a group generously celebrated in The Smithtown News as the “Elks Club Four,” whose sole purpose was to infiltrate and disrupt an event held on private property. We learned this because the quartet apparently had so little regard for both the curiosity and intellect of TBR readers, they merrily boasted of their double-dealing in a weekly, published in the same town, and on the same day Perretti’s propaganda appeared. That this crew refused to even consider the possibility someone might read more than one local paper and recognize the obvious contradictions speaks a whole lot more about them than us.

Yet recently, despite being easily exposed as an untrustworthy source, Sue is back moralizing to the same readers she presumed incapable of discovering her obvious duplicity. She loves lecturing the commoners on hate and morals, especially with regards to Zeldin; retyping the word “immoral” five times in her latest Aug. 16 letter, “Something is wrong, we must speak up.” Yet she’s had zero to say about the inarguably immoral, hateful death threats being made against our congressman, his wife and their young, twin daughters. It’s critical to note two things. All three of those targeted were introduced at the Elks Club that evening, and the next week there was a widely publicized July 6 incident at Zeldin’s Smithtown campaign office. The Suffolk County police press release read: “Martin Astrof was arrested after he threatened to kill supporters of Congressman Lee Zeldin and President

Donald Trump. Astrof went to the campaign headquarters of Congressman Zeldin and became irate with a campaign worker at approximately 11:15 a.m. After threatening to kill the campaign worker and other supporters, Astrof backed his car up in an aggressive manner nearly striking the worker.” Astrof was charged with making a terroristic threat and second-degree reckless endangerment. Those are felonies. After he made the threats at one of the congressman’s offices, he then menaced the worker outside the office by nearly backing into the person. Then he fled the scene. Rather than, once again, sermonize TBR readers on what’s right and wrong, perhaps Ms. Perretti could better redirect her homilies toward alleged felon Astrof, and any others who think they have the moral authority to threaten the lives of Congressman Zeldin and his family. Jim Soviero East Setauket

How much lower can Trump, Zeldin get I have been following the battle between Susan Perretti and Myra Gordon, et al and the cowardly U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin and his supporters who blindly follow him and his master puppeteer — President Donald Trump. Maybe Ms. Perretti and Ms. Gordon are just like me — tired and scared of how constitutionally ignorant Zeldin and his supporters are and how gutless Zeldin is as he continually supports a man who runs this country like a dictatorship. What part of Helsinki did you people not get? How about freedom of the press, freedom of speech, impeding a court case, not protecting our elections despite all dangerous and definite proof to the contrary, taking meetings with Russians who are

out to help you with your election? What about lying more than 4,000 times to the American people and being a bigot who has defended white supremacists? These are all horrible and anti-American actions that can all be proven by Trump and Rudy Giuliani’s mouths and written words. How much lower can Trump, his spineless friend Zeldin and his supporters sink then watching the international stage as Trump denigrates our intelligence community and throws them under the bus while kowtowing and complimenting Putin and being his spineless friend — another version of “trickle down politics.” This country is in danger and to support Zeldin is irresponsible as he supports Trump as he supports Putin. In other

words, do you love your party or do you love the Constitution and this country? It’s as simple as that. As for quotes of George Washington’s rule in one letter. It gets me sick when supporters of today’s Republicans quote past presidents as I’m sure they all would be turning in their graves and heartbroken if they knew what was happening in this country today. Especially Republican hero, Ronald Reagan, as his daughter Patti Davis has said. If you want to quote something, here is food for thought by an excellent author, one Ben Clements with others: “Impeachment is the cure for a constitutional crisis.” Karen Jillian Stony Brook

Thank you to local libraries, patrons I am writing in thanks and appreciation for our community and the Comsewogue Public Library, Emma S. Clark Memorial Library and Port Jefferson Free Library who partnered with my office to collect school supplies for our neighbors most in need this summer. It is because of the support offered by this community that

disadvantaged children throughout our county will begin this school year with the supplies necessary to succeed. Back-to-school season is often an anxious time in the lives of students, and for parents with low incomes or who are homeless. It can be equally worrying not knowing how or if their child will be

prepared for the new year. With your support we are able to give many children living in uncertainty a sense of comfort, confidence and hope for this new school year, and I thank you for that. Kara Hahn Suffolk County Legislator Setauket

Avoiding the slings and arrows of would-be foes


here people live, conflicts thrive. It’s inevitable. Get two people in a room for long enough and, eventually, they will find elements about the other person that irritate them. It’s what drives people to watch some reality TV shows. Participants can’t stand each other, they call each other names and, before you know it, someone is screaming at someone else D. None and the viewing audience at home of the above is rubbernecking BY DANIEL DUNAIEF through the drama. When it happens to other people, it’s entertainment. When it happens to us, it can hurt. Why do we care what other people think?

We know that some people will find fault with everyone — their mothers, siblings and bosses — making criticism inevitable and, ultimately, meaningless. If someone stood on the side of the road and yelled “Duck!” often enough, pretty soon people would stop ducking, would stop looking for ducks, and, like so many other noises around them, wouldn’t hear the warning anymore. And yet, when someone we know or even someone we’ve recently met indicates a disdain for us, scowls at our presence, or undermines our abilities, intelligence or effort, we feel cut to the quick. That person might just be repeating the same criticisms to us that he or she levies at everyone all the time. It’s like a fortune cookie. We read something that says, “You need to think twice before taking advice.” Wow, we think, how incredibly insightful, even as we ignore the irony that we are taking advice from a small slip of paper crushed into a Pac-Man shaped cookie. Someone recently gave me advice that seems valuable, like

quitting a job I hate, but maybe that person just wants to take my job or doesn’t want to hear me complaining. Maybe that advice doesn’t really apply to me after all. The same holds true for insults, criticism and nastiness. It could apply to us or it could just be fortune cookie nastiness, conjured up by someone who may not enjoy the life he or she leads, trying to make everyone as miserable as them. Insults are ubiquitous. Much of the time, however, the insult is an opinion, not a fact. There are times when an admonishment such as “You weren’t driving well” is accurate, particularly if you were driving the wrong way on a one-way street. We don’t immediately imagine the person doing the insulting might be sharing an opinion about us that we would almost instantly dismiss if it were about our spouse, our children, our parents or our close friends. We think, “Maybe I am terrible at this,” or “Maybe I should be embarrassed.”

People make puppets, write stories about fictional characters, draw cartoons and imaginary figures because they want to control something. But just because they want control doesn’t mean you have to give it to them. Even assuming someone doesn’t like you, your appearance or your ideas, so what? Our preferences are so subjective that we can’t or shouldn’t try to please everyone. We don’t have to play those reindeer games. We can disagree and express our opinions without attacking someone else. We follow whatever rules we set for ourselves and don’t need to fight fire with fire, hit back 10 times harder or show that we mean business. We can be more graceful than our detractors. When someone attacks us, we don’t have to act as if we’re wearing a target. We can look at that person, put a slow smile on our face and say, “It’s too bad you feel that way. Maybe a good fortune cookie would cheer you up?”

Microwave ovens will not talk to us, but microwave radiation might Question: Put together some sci-fi, add a bit of spy thriller and what have you got? Answer: The latest hypothesis for what caused the symptoms and illnesses of our diplomatic representatives in Cuba and then in China. The Cuban incident caused a serious rift in the newly mellowed relationship between Cuba and the United States. Now scientists are Between suggesting that microwaves might be you and me the weapons. BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF It seems that weapons emitting microwave radiation, not the short waves that come from our kitchen microwave ovens or connect our cellphones to antennae towers,

have been considered by military specialists for mind control since the Cold War. These invisible beams can transmit painfully loud booms and even spoken words into people’s heads, according to an astonishing story by William J. Broad on the front page of last Sunday’s New York Times. Now Douglas H. Smith, director of the Center for Brain Injury and Repair at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and the lead author of a recent study of 21 affected diplomats from Cuba, pointed to this possible cause of the brain injuries. The Frey effect, named after American biologist Allan H. Frey, occurs when microwaves cause the brain to “hear” ordinary sounds, like loud noises, ringing and even human voices. These can be the result of stealth attacks with sonic weapons. Jason, a secretive group of elite scientists that, according to The Times, helps the federal government assess new threats to national security, has been called in to figure out the cause of the symptoms. While the group has

not issued any explanations, nor has the FBI, it is certainly studying the possibility of microwaves being the agents. Frey, 83, who lives near Washington, agrees. He even thinks that a group of Cubans aligned with Russia, their longtime ally, might have launched such an attack. “It’s a possibility … a perfectly viable explanation,” to disrupt a closer United States-Cuban relationship. Microwaves, a form of electromagnetic radiation, are everywhere and are generally seen as harmless. However, when tightly focused, as when dish antennas turn the disorganized rays into concentrated beams, they can cause even deaf people to hear false sounds. Frey, in effect, founded a new field of study on the neural impact of radiation waves. He realized that the human head, because of its dimensions, is a good antenna for picking up microwave signals. The temporal lobes, beneath the temples, are where nerve signals from the outer and inner ear are processed. The effect is now called radio-frequency hearing.



Others took note. The Soviets built labs with armed guards to study the neural impact of microwaves and envisioned arms that they called psychophysical or psychotronic. These sounds, the Defense Intelligence Agency warned, could disrupt military or diplomatic personnel. The U.S. Air Force jumped in to research how to beam comprehensible speech into the heads of enemies. The Navy sought to paralyze with the beams. Russia, China and European nations know how to make such weapons today. The weapon might look like an innocuous satellite dish and could fire beams over relatively short distances. We do know that Russian President Vladimir Putin resurrected “work on psychoactive arms” as recently ago as 2012, according to The Times. There is still no definitive explanation for the sickness of diplomatic personnel in Cuban and subsequently China, but suspicions of microwave radiation remain high on the list. The problem in pinpointing them is the stealth.
