Art Deco is said to be one of the few architectural styles that most Americans can recognize and name, and its enduring popularity bears this out. Though Boston is less well-known for its Art Deco architecture than New York and Miami, it can claim examples of Art Deco design that would rival New York's finest. The tour provides not only narrative on individual buildings and their architects, but also offers context and background on the design elements and influences of American Art Deco. Boston's greatest concentration of Art Deco is in the city's Financial District, an area substantially leveled by fire in 1872 and ripe for a second cycle of redevelopment fifty years later.

I'm glad to see some reporting on the biological effects on individuals especially students in school. There is substantial evidence of serious harm from radiation emanating from routers and other devices; business appears only interested in marketing these devices for schools but has been negligent as far as safety or even educational value.
Currently, there is a ballot initiative (current petition 15-33) to create an expert commission to evaluate and address health and safety risks--this needs support to move forward (see www.meetup.com/healove). The site had additional materials available to help address the issue.
Thank you, Mr. Spero and Ms. Rees for this article! Ashland Public Schools has adopted Best Practices for Mobile Devices to start putting distance between students/staff and the devices/routers/access points in our schools. Senator Karen Spilka has introduced MA S.1222: An Act creating a special commission to study the health impacts of electromagnetic fields. While it may take a while for an outcome from the State, there is much you can do to keep your loved ones safe right now as Ms. Rees explains. I have taken those precautions myself in our home to limit radiation exposure. Those wishing to know more are welcome to look at the in-depth research I've gathered: https://sites.google.com/site/understandingemfs/home. Thank you!
