BBC Radio 4 – Crossing Continents: The Mystery of Havana Syndrome

(article) “Havana Syndrome: The History Behind the Mystery”


  • Possibly up to 1,500 American officials at home and abroad have suffered brain and other injuries in recent years from a mysterious malady that is reported to have begun in Havana in 2016 and has since been known as Havana Syndrome.
  • While aspects of these health incidents remain a mystery, they recall a series of historically documented Soviet technical operations against the US embassy in Moscow that began in 1953 and lasted for decades, providing credible evidence of serious harm to numerous diplomats and other US officials.
  • Since the fall of the Soviet Union, President Vladimir Putin and Russian military officers have publicly bragged about developing weapons that could cause health effects similar to Havana Syndrome.
    After attacks on officials of successive administrations, CIA Director William Burns may finally have put an end to such incidents by threatening the Russians with retaliation.
  • But the policy of tolerating, denying, and concealing decades of Russian attacks, at the expense of American officials, has harmed the credibility and weakened the power of the US government to deter other acts of aggression.

A yearlong investigation by The Insider, in collaboration with 60 Minutes and Der Spiegel, has uncovered evidence suggesting that unexplained anomalous health incidents, also known as Havana Syndrome, may have their origin in the use of directed energy weapons wielded by members of Russian GRU Unit 29155. Members of the Kremlin’s infamous military intelligence sabotage squad have been placed at the scene of suspected attacks on overseas U.S. government personnel and their family members, leading victims to question what Washington knows about the origins of Havana Syndrome, and what an appropriate Western response might entail.

CIA physician Dr. Paul Andrews was one of the first people sent to Havana, Cuba, to investigate a spate of mysterious health incidents that were impacting embassy and agency personnel in 2017 when he was struck by the same set of debilitating symptoms, he told CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta in his first public interview for a CNN Special Report: “Immaculate Concussion: The Truth About Havana Syndrome.”

Lawmakers should look in the mirror if they want answers to who hyped dubious reports of Havana syndrome. Instead they are investigating the spy agencies telling them the truth about the mystery

Law & Order S21 E08 “Severance”

aired on 2022-05-05

based on several real world cases/incidents besides “Havana syndrome” phenomenon:

  • Tesla, Inc. workplace controversies (2020)
  • The “Facebook Files” leak involving Frances Haugen (2021)
  • The murder of Tracie McBride by Louis Jones Jr. and the related controversial Gulf War syndrome clemency defence

※ Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE, 만성 외상성 뇌병)

A neurodegenerative disease linked to repeated trauma to the head.

Symptoms occur in four stages and typically manifest 8 to 10 years after an individual experiences repetitive mild traumatic brain injuries.

  • Stage 1: confusion, disorientation, dizziness, headaches
  • Stage 2: memory loss, social instability, impulsive behaviour, poor judgment
  • Stage 3 and 4: impediments, sensory processing disorder, tremors, vertigo, deafness, depression, suicidality

A definitive diagnosis of CTE can only be made during an autopsy, as it cannot be confirmed in living individuals. While some researchers link certain signs and symptoms to CTE, no conclusive test exists to identify it in living people. Additionally, the signs often resemble those of other neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s.

Keyboards for iPad Pro 12.9inch 6th gen

이런 종류로 가장 평이 좋은 것이 Brydge 12.9 MAX+이다.
나는 iPad가 이 장치로부터 떨어져 있을 때에도 보호되는 것이 좋은데 11inch나 Air용과 달리 12.9inch용은 그렇지 않다.
(이 문제로 iPad 주문 후 바로 이 제품도 주문했다가 곧 취소했더랬다.
최근에 이보다 내게 더 나은 넥스텍 프로를 발견하여 잘 취소했다는 생각.)

한국의 NEXT INT는 Brydge 제품들을 수입/판매하는데
자신들의 제품인 Nextek Pro도 제조/판매하고 있더라.

이 제품은 두 개의 hinge로 부착된 iPad의 각도, 높낮이 조절을 자유롭게 할 수 있고
아래와 같은 회전을 360°할 수 있다.

이 장점은 특수 key들과 함께 이 제품을 Apple이나 Brydge 제품보다 더 훌륭하게 한다.
Apple 제품의 trackpad를 따라갈 수 있는 것은 없을 것이라고들 하나 그것과 비교하지 않으면 충분히 좋은 trackpad를 가지고 있고 가능한 touch gesture들이 모두 지원된다.

무겁지만 무게는 포기한 것이니 기억만 하고 지나간다.
970g. (Brydge 것도 같은 무게, Apple 것은 710g)
