Program andServices at Cabrillo College. I was their client

DRC --- Disabled Resource Center at UC Santa Cruz.
I was their client starting Fall 2007 to Spring 2008.
DSS was renamed DRC after my sham graduation from UC Santa Cruz in 1989. Their website says in the
1990's, but no more accurate information is available. I found the exact same facade of service under a new name. Changing the name had
affected the hostility I found with DSS. It was more apparent with DRC.
DSPandS was renamed Accessibility Support
Center (ASC) when I checked in November 2014. Is this the same facade of service under a new name?

I am a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivor with a degree in Biochemistry, I earned after my accident. The experts kept telling me, healing
TBI was no longer possible. Happily, I ignored them (their dire/sadistic attempts to make me feel hopeless) and listened to other head injury survivors.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy did allow me recovery from my TBI 31 years after the climbing accident my family and friends thought had killed me,

25 years after my accident.
No HBOT sessions.

Lots of erasing.

and 60 HBOT sessions.
About one minute using a pen.
Severe dragging damage
Little dragging damage
After three HBOT sessions.
My right shoe (in the left picture) illustrates the damage to my right shoe caused by my foot dragging on the ground. I was
tired of exercising and having it not respond. I had no expectations of it ever changing.
I have been using the shoe (in the right picture) for three months. Damage from
dragging on the ground is no longer an expensive and unpleasant reality. No more cheap, uncomfortable and poorly made shoes!
In 1983, a 165 foot rock climbing fall left me in coma for six weeks, with a
broken back, a TBI and other serious injuries. 31 years after
my accident I had finally given up on exercising to improve my physical condition. The right side
of my body didn't respond to motor input anymore. Exercise made me tired, but had no effect on my right side - it was really discouraging. Then in August 2014
I heard about HBOT on Brain Injury Radio. Intrigued, I contacted
though I had no expectations of ever having a
functioning right side of my body again.
I was (and am) utterly astounded by this completely unexpected positive increase in my physical well being.
After 60 HBOT sessions:
I am using my diaphragm to form words again. The volume and depth of my voice is increasing. It is
becoming easier for me to make myself heard in noisy locations. My normal speaking voice is returning after being gone for 31 years.
After session 3, I realized my right foot was not longer dragging on
the ground. It was ruining my shoes and

did not respond to exercise, I did not know what else I could do.
I was so used to chewing with the left side of my mouth, that I was unaware I was doing that.
After 31 years I chew with both sides of my mouth again.
I can stand with weight on my right leg again. It would not support me before
and I fell a few times a year for 31 years.
After 31 years I have stopped favoring my right leg. My weight is equally spread between
my feet once more.
After 31 years I no longer lean to the right.
After 31 years fine motor control is returning to the right side of my body.
I can shave faster with less pressure.
Before session 16 I was able to stand free without having to constantly brace myself.
After 31 years I can read print with both eyes open again.
After 31 years I can hand write letters again.
I can pet my cat with my right hand now, without her trying to bite me.
After 31 years I can eat using my right hand again.
For the first time ever I can write my own mathematical equations (calculus) and have the time to error check them
for Algebraic mistakes.
I can tutor mathematics, chemistry and physics because now I have the ability to show in writing what I am talking about.
Before Hyperbarics I was physically unable to do that.
TBI survivors need to know that they have an alternative to being alone, feeling depressed and miserable about themselves.
I will always be grateful to Bay Area
Hyperbarics for helping me mitigate the more serious effects of my TBI.
In the case that illegal or otherwise disreputable and unpopular activities become
public, high-ranking (school) officials may deny any awareness of such act in order to insulate
themselves and shift blame on the agents who carried out the acts, confident that their
doubters will be unable to prove otherwise. The lack of evidence to the contrary ostensibly
makes the denial plausible, that is, credible. The term typically implies forethought, such
as intentionally setting up the conditions to plausibly avoid responsibility for one's
(future) actions or knowledge. In some organizations, legal doctrines such as command
responsibility exist to hold major parties responsible for the actions of subordinates
involved in heinous acts and nullify any legal protection that their denial of involvement
What is the true cost of

All wireless technology should carry
A Warning Label That warns about the suspected hazards
of wireless technology (microwave radiation).
We need to slowdown on the extensive implementation of “wireless
technology” and first establish guidelines for its safe use.
Why isn't the media doing their job and warning us (the consumers) about the hazards of wireless technology?
We need guidelines for the safe use of this technology ased on scientific studies made by independent scientists - not industry shills.
How many studies are needed, before exposure to microwave radiation is linked to cancer and sterility?
A Biochemistry Graduate, who read and analyzed more then
research studies for his degree,

It appears that wireless technology (microwave radiation)

proper development into human beings.
experimenting on us and future generations by selling us "the convenience of wireless
technology," without mentioning or cautioning about possible
drawbacks to this technolgy? What independant scientific studies are they using before marketing
this technology? For example:
Scientists have documented genetic damage from microwave radiation, yet
we never hear of this.
The health of the consumer and the future of the human race are being disregarded, so
someone can make $$$$.

WiFi and its connection to my symptoms. They went away once I disabled my router.
I used the Internet through a WiFi connection (microwave radiation) from the fall of
2007 until July 11, 2014 when I disabled my router. There was no warning or caution about microwave
WiFi in schools proven dangerous
radiation. If there had been a warning label, I would have been much more cautious
about using wireless technology. I unwittingly exposed myself to microwave radiation.
unsure of the lasting damage, but I know there is some. I just don't know how much. People that
do not have any experience with the biological effects of radiation are making decisions
that poison us and our children with microwave radiation. These people are
sacrificing our genetic heritage, DNA and its precise arrangement, for noteriety or
money in their pocket (maybe both).
Shame on our politicians for allowing them get away with what they are doing.
I am used to being able to think clearly and figure things out. Gradually I became less able to do that.
I was becoming increasingly despondant most of the time, particularly when I was home. How much was
due to the “Learned Helplessness” used on me by DSS,
DSPandS and DRC will always be a mystery, but
WiFi microwave radiation
was a major contributer to my mental despair. I know that to be the case, because, since I disabled
the router by wrapping it in foil (No WiFi)
I am no longer being bombarded with microwave radiation. I can think clearly again. Figuring out problems
has become exciting once more. I feel optimistic about the future - “Nobody can go back and start
a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
About a month ago I was coughing fairly regularly. I assumed it was due to my throat being irritated from
practicing speaking. The head person at DSS had told me flat out there was nothing I could do to
improve the quality of my voice and therefore, don't try. I bought into what she said because she
expert and she would never mislead me. To make a long story short, she was lying
(to hide her lack of knowledge?). I was practicing speaking text, but I had hit a plateau,
my speaking ability was not improving.
I realized that, for example, Mozart was not suddenly a piano
virtuoso, he practiced playing the piano a lot. Why was I different? My voice (since my accident)
has always bothered me.
If I want to change it I can, but it will not be easy and I will have to practice a lot.
I practice, practice and practice singing the lyrics from songs of The Moody Blues and
Cell Phones and Brain Cancer - The Interphone Study
(I grew up with their music and know how the lyrics are supposed to sound. My vocal
attempts are pathetic, but at least I'm trying).
I practice singing the lyrics for at least an hour a day.
Vocal stuff is very difficult for me and so it goes. I wish I had known to do this
back when I had my accident. Instead I reinforced patterns of speaking badly for 30 years. Singing the
lyrics to songs is breaking up old speech patterns. Reciting text was reinforcing the way I
had been conditioned to speak (for 30 years).
After my accident I had to learn to speak again, but I no place to practice and I was told
my speaking efforts were
pointless and a waste of time (DSS, DSPandS
and DRC chose to ridicule me rather then rehabilitate me). DSS started the ridicule
with their policy of “Learned Helplessness”, the ridicule
that has been so destructive to my selfimage and the rest of my life.
DSPandS and DRC chose to continue the
“Learned Helplessness”, because they had not been trained to avoid it.
I was told vocal change was impossible after the first year of my accident (mid July 1983),
but I did not listen to the experts, I listened to myself and Brain Injury Radio instead.
One of the hosts, LesPaul of the program, “Dream Catchers” (on
Brain Injury Radio), was saying how he had got his speaking voice back after suffering a
Brain Aneurysm by singing karaoke. I thought to give it a try
and I am glad I did. 100% of people that know me have commented on my improved speaking ability, though
it has been more then 31 years since my accident. I was told misleading information by the head
of DSS 30 years ago. Maybe she did not know or maybe she was getting pleasure out of crushing
my hopes of escaping from the box (mentally incompetant, vocally challanged, second class citizen,
wasting her time, etc.) she
BBC Panorama - WiFi - A Warning Signal 1
was determined to cram me into - I don't know.
Anyway, I thought my constant coughing was due to my throat being irritated from the dramatically
increased air flow
I was doing research into my symptoms and stumbled across the WiFi/microwave irradiation thing.
Suddenly, all these
seemingly, unrelated symptoms, started to make sense.
Shocked, I tried wrapping the antenna
of my router in foil (picture - Mostly WiFi),
but that did not work, my laptop could still connect with the Internet. So I covered my entire
router with foil to disable the WiFi (picture - No WiFi) - that worked. My laptop could no
longer connect to the Internet. I turned off, "Airport mode," so it would not continue to
bathe me with microwave radiation as it searched for a connection.
The router was on the right side of my computer desk, at the same level
as my sternum, pointing directly at my chest from three feet away. I put off seeing my doctor and disabled
the WiFi aspect of my router. One is completely gone The other has shrunk to half the size
they both were, before I disabled the
WiFi portion of my router (12 days ago), so maybe it was not affected.
Microwave radiation is not ionizing radiation. It was not suspected of causing
damage to the genetic material (DNA) of the cell.
However there was a study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
January 14, 2010 that associated WiFi (microwave radiation) exposure with a possible
cancer risk. Click on

Of course there are YouTube videos. Some are produced by charlatans
with the aim of using your fears (which are valid) to rip you off.
I have included five videos on WiFi use that I agree with
and one on cell phone use. If you click on the YouTube icon at the bottom of any video, you
can watch it on YouTube. Please feel free to distribute any and all links to these videos or

We need to raise people's awareness of the dangers of wireless technology before it is too late.
One claim I have yet to see demonstrated see is how this newly discovered material will protect
you from radiation by some
magical property. All you have do (after paying some incredibly low price) is wear a medallion
around your neck. Imagine a sunblock that was claimed to work by wearing it around your neck. Would
you believe that possible? Why didn't Einstein figure this out?
From my experience, there is a link between microwaves and nerve damage (my right hand
BBC Panorama - WiFi - A Warning Signal 2
became numb, using my laptop to scroll though a 29 page document). A Google search for,
"microwave radiation nerve damage," returned 70,100 Hits. Anyway, back to my experience.
My router was on and my laptop
was picking up the signal (airport mode) and my right hand was directly above the microwave emitter of
My left hand became numb when I used it to replace my right hand after that became too numb to use.
There is a noticeable difference in my eyes tracking together. I did a Google search for,
"WiFi muscle spasms," and got 6,980,000 Hits (8/11/14). Back to my eye tracking problems.
I can finally start to read books with both eyes again.
Videos have more depth
(both eyes are 'seeing' the same image from slightly different vantage points and sending
this information to my brain
to be processed).
There is evidence (2003, Swedish) of low level microwave, cell phone, induced damage to neurons and
the mammalian Blood Brain Barrier (BBB), but no increase in cancer rates. That finding is directly
contradicted by a recent British study, click
cancer Link to EMF radiation.
I have noticed that since I disabled my router (I'm not being bombarded by microwaves) my sleep
patterns are returning to normal (7 1⁄2 hours/night for me). About two months
ago, I was aware that eight or nine hours of sleep/night was not making me feel more rested. I
felt tired after I woke up. I was really puzzled. I could not figure out why I so lethargic
after so much sleep.
I strained my right shoulder, lifting a 35 lb jug of kitty litter on April 10, 2014. It would not heal.
I was thinking that something was really wrong with my shoulder/upper arm. I was about to see my
doctor about it, when I disabled the WiFi
on July 17, 2014. It has mostly healed by July 29, 2014, with the WiFi disabled. My shoulder would not heal
when I was being poisoned by radio waves/microwaves (WiFi).
My back pain has significantly lowered (I have three fused vertebrae). I forgot to take my pain
medication before the router was disabled and I was freaking out from the pain. I did forget again,
but this time the
router was disabled - it was no big deal. From my experiences I conclude WiFi has
serious biological effects on me.
I have a degree in Biochemistry. Being labeled a "Crackpot,"
"Spin-my-propeller." Radiation is to be respected and avoided.
I know there is cause for concern, in spite of what industry (the people
BBC Panorama - WiFi - A Warning Signal 3
profit off our ignorance of the reality of wireless communication) tells me. Back to
I read more then 35
chemcal experiments and analyzed them to see if the conclusions reached were validated by the
experimental results. I am very aware of charlatans that are trying to sell you magical
crap that does nothing, except enrich them. Carl Sagan said, "Extraordinary claims require
extraordinary evidence." For example, some of these people claim they can passively effect elctromagnetic
radiation (EMF). They have no suppoting evidence. From my studies I know there are three ways to effect EMF:
total blockage (aluminum foil), passage through a filter (polarized sunglasses) or gravitational
lensing (predicted by Einstein).
They still make their outrageous claims and depend on people not knowing they are being lied to.
Based on my experience and my research,
I will never use a microwave oven again. I will never use WiFi
again. My router is wrapped in foil to disable the WiFi portion until I can rearrange my living
space and I get a detecter to be sure it not poisoning me with microwave radiation again.
Eventually, I will run an ethernet cable from my router to my laptop (direct connection), but at
the moment my laptop is not connected to the Internet.
It is more inconvenient to not be able to use my laptop wherever I feel like it, but being able to
Prof. Olle Johansson on WiFi - "Irreversible sterility
within five generations"
decreased back pain, a stronger immune system (cancer protection),
decent sleep, normal body repair, lack of genetic damage, etc. makes
inconvenience no big deal. WiFi and cellphones are convenient, but
the cost of this convenience is one I'm not willing to keep paying.
It is our responsibility to protect our children. Blindly installing WiFi in schools when we know
of the mounting evidence of the health risks
of exposing our children to microwave radiation is irresponsible.
Doctors can not properly diagnose
symptoms when they are WiFi induced. For example; If a patient lives in a "WiFi hotspot", the symptoms
may vanish away from the transmitters. Until they move or install a means for blocking WiFi radiation,
they may be subjected to unnecessary medical procedures (possibly harmful too [I was referred to
by my family physician. This doctor's staff wanted to inject
me with a radioactive isotope in an attempt to determine the source of a WiFi induced condition - I
refused, much to the staff's annoyance, They tried to guilt trip me into the procedure, I told
them to go f***
themselves and walked out]). My symptoms did not reccur - end of story.

Wireless technology (microwave radiation) is harmful to people. We are
not informed of this.
Does our government need to create an agency to keep us safe from microwave radiation?
Wireless technology needs prominent warning labels so we can decide, if the risks are worth the purchase.
Based on my experience and the opinions of scientists doing research on wireless technology,
this Biochemistry graduate recommends seven things to minimize microwave radiation exposure:
Use hands free technology with cell phones. Do not carry a cell phone next to your skin, unless it is either,
completely shielded or completely off.
Do not allow children to handle your cell phone.
Use direct connections (cables) to connect with the Internet.
Avoid use of wireless connections. Move printers and other wireless devices to where a cable can
connect them. I am moving my laptop so I can connect to the Internet with ether net. a cable connection.
Do not use wireless connections without protection from the radio waves. These microwave connections are convenient.
However, do not confuse, convenience, with, safety. Do not assume, because it is available, it must be safe. It, first,
has to be tested for safety for that to be true.
If you must use a wireless connection, turn the router off at night and when you are not connected to the Internet. If you
don't want to to keep turning your router on and off, a foil hat that completely encloses the router (see,
NO WIFI) works also.
Get a microwave radiation detector with an audible alarm and use it.
Technology is a wonderful thing, but so is our health.

Wireless technology has not been extensively tested. Every test has shown it to be unsafe. Wireless technology (WiFi) comes with a steep price that has been deliberately hidden from us.

A Warning Label That warns about the suspected hazards
of wireless technology (microwave radiation).
Rehabilitating people surviving formerly lethal events.
Every college and university needs to have a, "Department of Rehabilitation,"
to assist TBI survivors with putting their lives back together.
The departments that deal with disabled students will be a subcatagory of the
Department of Rehabilitation and will only deal with
temporarily disabled students - they have shown that they are poorly trained in
meeting the needs of the weakest members of our society. They should have little
contact with permanently disabled students.
At the first class meeting the instructor should announce they are seeking writing and lab
assistants to aid in disabled student's rehabilitation, that students who volunteer
will be paid, have a reduced class load and benefit from having the time to learn
the material throughly.
Assistants will require more time to graduate, but their financial aid will not be affected.
Assisting in rehabilitation will count as academic credit.
This will cost money, but the people of DSS, DSPandS and DRC have shown that they will ridicule and marginalize
their clients if things do not change.
Without regulation and their use of "Plausible Deniability” (deliberate avoidence of
feedback); the people of DSS, DSPandS
and DRC ensured my mediocre education.
These guidelines will cost more then is currently being spent, but I am living proof of
why we need to change the present system.
Staff that work with head injury Survivors need to be trained on working
with Head Injury Survivors. I have experienced first
hand the discrimination that results from Staff that rely on stereotypes of TBI.
The ADA needs to be amended to prevent the sort of preconceptions, I encountered,
from continuing to happen. I have included seven suggestions based on my extensive
experience with Staff People who feel the ADA does not apply to them and the clients they serve.
Establishment of a committee, made up of men and women, whose purpose is to see that the
ADA is being followed. The Staff People I dealt with have shown what they will do
when no one is checking up on them or asking their clients if their disability is being accommodated?
The staff People who relegate services to disabled students need to be required to attend the first
class meeting (preferably an upper division science class that they can not understand) wearing a
shirt that says, “I'm a freak,
don't talk to me,” to get an idea of what social isolation and ridicule are like.
Colleges and Universities that do not serve all citizens, will receive no federal dollars
for anything (this includes financial aid) - no exception.
Disabled students need to be told of their rights every time they register for a class.
Staff people need to be liable for criminal prosecution for denial of accommodation. An equivalent
length of time the disabled student is at school (two semesters or three quarters, per year) is a
reasonable length of time for a disabled student to file a lawsuit.
A feedback/posting mechanism is required.
Mandatory fines and imprisonment for people in Higher Education who do not to do the job they are
being paid to do.
Staff people who are convicted of denying accommodation to a Disabled Student will be barred
for life from working with Disabled Students.
There must be consequences for breaking the law or staff people will continue to flaunt the ADA it
and we will continue to lose out on head injury survivors contributions to our society.
Rehabilitating head injury Survivors is serious business. It gives us the opportunity to use
what we still have to benefit ourselves, our peers and the human race to which we belong.
"Very strange people, physicists - in my experience the ones who aren't
dead are in some way very ill"
- Mr Standish "The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul" by Douglas Adams
I am not aware of any psychological testing for positions, where the applicant will be
in contact with people they can take advantage of (head injury Survivors). The
possibility for Constitutional Rights violations and Human Rights violations is
significant, my experience bears that out. People with sadistic tendencies should have
little, to no, contact with disabled students (new victims).
I see no reason to expect the Staff People who bullied
me (and other clients of their's) are any different from other Staff People in
similar positions across our country. This
does not bode well for the increasing number of, men and women, surviving, formerly
lethal accidents, traumatic incidents and Military mishaps.
The case for reform our system of Higher Education can not be made better,
than the rationale by UCSC for what they did to me. They provided the spark, fuel
for the fire that consumed

If UCSC Chancellor George Blumenthol had been dependent on DSS,

for his undergraduate education, he would have a similar academic record to mine. It
might have taken him an additional 18 years of dropped, repeated
and failed classes to acquire basic knowledge of his major - it did me.
any graduate school in the world foolish enough to
accept a student that took 26 years to acquire his undergraduate
knowledge for his major?
It is ironic that one of the people that works for him is justifying and rationalizing the
very system that would have prevented undergraduate George Blumenthol from becoming his boss.

and DRC succeeded in wasting almost two decades of my life. When I should have been
hanging out with my friends, having and raising
children, they made sure I was socially
isolated, desperately trying to write my homework and focusing
how bad I felt about myself (the entire time I was aware of how my social life was crumbling).
That, the people that were paid to help me, instead, were deliberately
trying to sabotage me, was a thought that never occurred to me. I can't figure why anyone would
bully a head injury survivor?.
Why did they hate me? Was it my voice?
Maybe they did not hate me, but had a funny way of showing affection
and pride for their clients? Whatever their
motivation, the fact is they deliberately violated my constitutional right to a quality education,
because there was no oversight - they could get away with it, plus there was no feedback, so,
they could treat me like trash, because no one would ever find out. They thought, I was so beaten down,
I would never talk about them, however things did not work the way they had planned.
After 26 years of college and
universty education I still do not have the knowledge to engage in cancer research. Should I
feel whipped? I do not know. What I do know is, I am really angry for what they did to people
whose lives I could have helped save, if DSS, DSPandS
and DRC had not engaged in 24 years of nasty psychological torture (“Social
Isolation” and “Learned Helplessness”) on me.

We need to experimentally verify something is safe, before rushing to use it.
WiFi is proven to be unsafe, it should be removed from everywhere. Wireless communication
is this new technology that can have serious
health consequences. Is there cause for concern? I think so.
Is this new technology worth the coveneniece of genetic damage, cancer, nerve damage, birth defects,
headaches, nausea, inhibited body repair, misdiagnosis, disrupted sleep patterns, general
fatigue etc..? I do not think so, but maybe my opinion is unique to me. People need to have the
facts so they can decide. Maybe wireless technology is something they want to use, maybe it isn't.
We live in a democracy, give people access to the information about this new technology and let
I want to start a conversation about treating head injury survivors like people and rehabilitating us -
head injury survivors and veterans with head injury.
TBI is a 'new' disability. Until
recently, TBI killed everyone that suffered it. Now we are
surviving formerly lethal accidents, incidents
and Military mishaps. People are employed to rehabilitate us. They are not being employed to
waste our time and money.
Help me change this system so that Staff People can not use, “Social
Isolation” and “Learned Helplessness”, to make
TBI Survivors docile and easy to manipulate ever. Instead we need to educate students
24 years of emotional trauma at the college and university.
I was the top student in Organic Chemistry
at UC Santa Cruz in the summer of 1982.
A year later, in mid-summer 1983, a 165 foot rock climbing fall did not end my life or paralyze me, despite
breaking my back. I woke six weeks later to an unforseen lifestyle change. While unconcious, I had been transfomed
into a criminal who survived a traumatic accident with a head injury.
As I have never been imprisoned: “Social Isolation” and
“Learned Helplessness” were two new concepts to me. These two policies
would ruin 32 years of my life;
leaving me with no way to
afford a family, few friends and a terrible self image.
After 24 years of schooling, I am disabled, poor, unemployed and unemployable, because I was fooled into
believing staff people were interested in helping educate me.
In Fall 1984, my 24 year educational experience of paranoid loneliness and social isolation from my peers
and the people around me was begun at the UC campus.
The organizations that help disabled students with their education,
attempted to make me go away by denying me accommodation for my disability.
This was a deliberate event. I can not imagine why anyone would treat a law abiding American Citizen
like a criminal, though I have tried.
The Staff people that did this to me were (and are) sadistic monsters who broke the law.
My diploma in
24 years of psychological torture, “Social Isolation” and
“Learned Helplessness” for the final year of my degree.
They had conditioned me in 1984/1985 to get used to being treated badly (sadistically) by them and I no longer protested anything
about my treatment after initially being attacked whenever I had.
The staff I was forced to work with at the UC campus and the Community College ignored parts of the ADA from its
passage in 1990, until Spring 2008 (one of them bragged to me in October 2009),
I finally realized these people had no intention of ever doing their job and I finally dropped out of school.
because I refused to give up hope for my rehabilitation. I kept looking forwards,
trying to ignore the the subtle, but constant, sadism from the staff that were helping me and would not drop out of school for 24 years.
What these Staff people did to me is not unique to the UC campus and the community
college I attended. The attitude they were using to justify their actions was evident wherever I looked on the Internet.
As a head injury survivor, I needed
help with my education, but that
is not what I got.

These people intentionally ruined my chances to live a normal life and provide for a family because I am a head injury survivor.
