This is the question the country is asking. Mobile phones are considered by many as an essential part of modern day life, from the businessperson who uses the mobile phone as a vital link with the office, to the teenager who has the phone for recreational use. By using mobile phones are we damaging our long-term health just to stay in contact or worse simply just for a good image?

Mobile or cellular phones have changed dramatically over the past two or three years. The new generation of WAP phones now allow the user to connect to the Internet, send e-mail and even listen to the radio. The e-mail feature, a tremendous advancement in technology, allows businesspeople to contact their office at anytime day or night. Not only can e-mail be used throughout Britain but also messages can be sent globally. Sending e-mail is not nearly as expensive as the conventional methods of contact, therefore has the potential to reduce costs considerably for the company. The e-mail can be sent anytime, not just within office hours, and time differences between countries are no longer a consideration.

Many mobile phone users claim one of the main advantages of ownership is the ability to contact friends or family in the event of an emergency. Most women who travel alone feel more secure knowing that in an emergency or breakdown they can summon help without leaving the safety of their car therefore, the mobile reduces the chances of being run over or worse raped. By having your mobile phones with you could it be a silent killer?

The reduction in costs associated with owning and using a mobile phone, largely due to the introduction of the new pay and go tariff, means that many more people are now able to afford a mobile phone. The main disadvantage of this is that the networks can become overloaded and make it extremely difficult to connect to the network. The consequences of…...

...accident. So they are lucky, but it is not often occurring. A cell phone is useful, but at the same time it is dangerous. Anyway, I think the drivers should be prohibited from using a cell phone because it has many factors such as they lose control of the vehicle, they don’t have responsibility and it is the main reason of accidents. Although using a cell phone while they are driving will be dangerous, many people also want to use it. They wear a headset or a Bluetooth with the cell phone which can cause them to feel safe. They also have their position. They can control themselves to pay attention to driving. They think when the phone ring, it means that is an urgent situation which they have to pick up the phone and talk to them. If they don’t pick up the phone, they will miss important news at that time. They insist that they shouldn’t be prohibited from using the cell phone. The first factor is they lose control of the vehicle. In other words, when the drivers use the cell phone, it makes them not pay attention to the way or the light. It is easy to get a trouble on the road. The drivers shouldn’t use the cell phone while they are driving. However, they can call them back later because driving is not taken a long time. Why can’t they wait until arrive to destination? They will feel comfortable when they don’t have to cautious to another car. It will be more dangerous to control of the vehicle, when it gets dark outside. You should have more attention to the......

...the cellular phone.[13][14] Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher and executive, was the key researcher on Mitchell's team that developed the first hand-held mobile telephone for use on a cellular network.[15] Using a somewhat heavy portable handset, Cooper made the first call on a handheld mobile phone on 3 April 1973 to his rival, Dr. Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs.[16][17] As I walked down the street while talking on the phone, sophisticated New Yorkers gaped at the sight of someone actually moving around while making a phone call. Remember that in 1973, there weren't cordless telephones or cellular phones. I made numerous calls, including one where I crossed the street while talking to a New York radio reporter - probably one of the more dangerous things I have ever done in my life. —Martin Cooper, [18] The new invention sold for $3,995 and weighed two pounds, leading to the nickname "the brick". The world's first commercial automated cellular network was launched in Japan by NTT in 1979, initially in the metropolitan area of Tokyo. In 1981, this was followed by the simultaneous launch of the Nordic Mobile Telephone (NMT) system in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.[19] Several countries then followed in the early to mid-1980s including the UK, Mexico and Canada. On 6 March 1983, the DynaTAc mobile phone launched on the first US 1G network by Ameritech. It cost $100m to develop, and took over a decade to reach the market.[20] The phone had a talk time of just half an......

...be a major problem, with approximately 20 million thefts, 400,000 acts of vandalism, and 110,000 assaults on teachers reported in the United States during 1979. The situation was considered so serious in Los Angeles that, on May 28, California Attorney General George Deukmejian filed suit against the Los Angeles unified school district, the chief of police, and other city officials. The suit charged that because of the high levels of excessive violence in the city schools, the compulsory school attendance laws amounted to 'cruel and unusual punishment' under California's constitution. According to the attorney general, nearly 19,000 students were suspended from the school system in the 1978-1979 school year for fighting or possession of dangerous weapons, and there were numerous incidents of assaults, rapes, and shootings. Testing. Controversy continued this year over the standardized tests routinely used to determine eligibility for admission to colleges, graduate schools, and professional schools and to decide on placement in special programs. On January 1, a law went into effect in New York State permitting test takers (for an extra fee) to get back their answer sheets along with a set of questions and an answer key. If they suspect a marking error, they may have the examination hand-corrected, and if the error is borne out, revised scores will be mailed out to schools that received the original score. Similar laws have been under consideration in other states, and a......

With modernization and development in our lives pollution has reached its peak; giving rise to global warming and human illness. Body Pollution occurs in different forms; air, water, soil, radioactive, noise, heat/ thermal and light. Every form of pollution has two sources of occurrence; the point and the non-point sources. The point sources are easy to identify, monitor and control, whereas the non-point sources are hard to control.  Let us discuss the different types of pollutions, their causes and effects on mankind and the environment as a whole. Types & Causes of Pollution Air Pollution is the most prominent and dangerous form of pollution. It occurs due to many reasons. Excessive burning of fuel which is a necessity of our daily lives for cooking, driving and other industrial activities; releases a huge amount of chemical substances in the air everyday; these pollute the air. Smoke from chimneys, factories, vehicles or burning of wood basically occurs due to coal burning; this releases sulphur dioxide into the air making it toxic. The effects of air pollution are evident too. Release of sulphur dioxide and hazardous gases into the air causes global warming and acid rain; which in turn have increased temperatures, erratic rains and droughts worldwide; making it tough for the animals to survive.

Discussions pertaining to the drawbacks and negatives of cellphones are rarely ever talked about. Even though cell phones can be very useful in our everyday lives, they can also be irritating, annoying, and dangerous. This first occurrence happened one evening my freshman year of college at Austin Peay State University. I attended an event at the Mass Communications building. My younger cousin performed at the program with a few others representing her school. It was practically her big day because she was conducting a solo. Her specific instructions were that “I am required to be in attendance,” so I was present. I happened to be sit in the middle, not too close to the back, but not too close to the front. After the intructor warned the audience to turn all electronic devices off, they began the program. First, her solo selection was coming up, and I couldn’t help but hear a student not far from me, take out her cellular device, that should be turned on do not disturb, and whisper her entire conversation throughout the entire performance. I felt as if I had lost all focus on her melodious solo to a phone conversation. I was highly upset, but my cousin was later offered another chance to play again for another event. It wasn’t a completely disappointing afternoon. The second......

...Batteries were installed in the cell phones and there was no need for huge car batteries to power up a small device. Cell phones also started getting smaller and smaller. The earliest cell phones were so bulky because these needed large batteries. From 1983 to 1989, cell phones became popular and received demand from the public. The innovations in communication technology and the other networks include the ability of cell phones to handle calls from one area to another area way beyond the venue of the call. In the 1980s, a lot of cell phones were not made to be hand held. The phones were installed in the car. Nowadays, we are using third generation technology therefore the phones that are available and are used are called third generation cellphones. 3G cell phones have requirements which cell phone providers and networks obey.

Effects of Cellphone Use

...Effects of Cellphone Use While Driving The reason I oppose the use of cell phone during driving is because I was once engaged in a cellphone use while driving that totally distracted me as it diverted my concentration off the road. This happened to me years ago, while I was driving home from work, I made a quick phone call to my mother and at the same instant the car swerved onto the side of the street and almost hit a pedestrian crossing the road. I realized that the risk of taking my eyes off the road for a split second could cause an injury and even fatal accident. It will show the audience why this issue matters to me, and why it should to them. Using a cell phone while driving is dangerous and increases the chance of getting into a car accident. Therefore, texting ban should be implemented to reduce the number of accidents on the road. Cellular phones serve as useful convenient methods of communication. It has become an important communication tool that is used by people all over the world to keep everyone connected. However, the increase use of cellphone while driving is becoming a significant cause of automobile accidents because it decreases a driver’s awareness and attentiveness resulting in driver’s being distracted and impaired driving abilities.

...Cellphones The advent of mobile phones has squeezed this large world and brought it into the palm of human being. However mobile phones have always been instigating debates among the people about their merits and demerits. Apart from the instant access they give us, mobile phones have multipurpose uses ranging from business work, means for entertainment and ensuring security. On the other hand, they have some disadvantages like initiating violation of privacy, unnecessary wastage of money, talking on mobile phones while driving and emission of radiation from the handsets which is allegedly harmful for health. I would like to argue for the advantages of mobile phones which outweigh their disadvantages.  The main feature of mobile phones is ‘instant access' which makes them the most exclusive devices for communication. Now people can make voice or VDO call or send text messages to anyone anytime from almost anywhere at a cheap rate using mobile phones. Besides this, with the aid of the latest WAP technology users can surf the internet, send emails and chat with other people at a low cost (http://www.webuser.co.uk, 24th October, 2007). According to a research released on 13th February, 2007 from the Mobile Entertainment Forum and Ovum, 20% of UK subscribers search internet via mobile phones (http://www.3g.co.uk/PR/Feb2007/4267.htm, retrieved 24th October, 2007). It is obvious that the communication has become a lot easier now compared to the pre-mobile phones......
