Migratory birds are known to use the geomagnetic field as a source of compass information. Scientists have shown that oscillating magnetic fields disrupt the orientation behavior of migratory birds.

Researchers found that robins were disoriented when exposed to a vertically aligned, broadband or a single-frequency field.

"...medium- and short-wave frequencies have been used since the 1930s with little evidence of any effect on bird behavior.

Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
