2013 Assuring Radiation Protection
To better understand the plans and structure of this new government position that taxpayers are paying for, here are a few quotes from the job notice and questions:
(1) “Examples of relevant areas already identified to be of interest include, but are not limited to: The application of x-rays to the healing arts; (2) the application of non-medical ionizing radiation and medical/non-medical non-ionizing radiation; and (3) the control and mitigation of radiation exposure from all sources.”
Question: Non-ionizing radiation is supposed to be harmless and current FCC limits only regulate and limit devices emitting microwave heating levels of radiofrequency. So, what current or future application(s) of non-medical non-ionizing radiation would be considered a radiation hazard? What kinds of scenarios are envisioned?
(2) “This (work) shall include collaboration with the Federal Agencies, in accordance with Federal statutes and regulations that are providing access to rules that are still under development to enable the recipient to initiate timely development or revisions in parallel.”
Question: What rules are still being written? Do they somehow relate to ObamaCare (since those rules are currently being pumped out?)
(3) “The recommendations of the committees are evaluated by a central management board and final recommended actions are relayed to the appropriate Federal and State Agencies and Tribal organizations.”
Question: What/who is the central management board, and its function/role?
At any rate, get your application to the FDA ASAP for this interesting $400,000/year position, courtesy U.S. taxpayers.
