The mobile phone. An electronic device which can be found in the possession of most teenagers nowadays. Due to the arrival of mobile phones communication has become a lot easier and the world has become a much more interactive place. However there is a good side and a bad side to every story and in this case the misuse of mobile phones has caused many people to take action against mobiles. However most of you will agree with me that the mobile phone is a very useful tool that we just cant do without. But in most schools the use of mobile phones is banned. Young people with mobiles are persecuted.
I think that this should not be the case. Some different plan should be implemented to prevent the misuse of mobile phones, instead of outright banning of the use of mobile phones How Safe Are Mobile Phones? Millions of people own a mobile phone these days, and ever since they have been around scientists question the fact of they are safe or not. Do they cause tumors, earaches, mercury poisoning? All these health risks are mentioned in every article I found. But nowhere could I find anything that was sure if mobiles did cause all of the above. This is where science fails us.
The problem is that mobile phones are still too new to know the long-term effects on human. Mobile phones give of a radiation of radio frequency round 10MHz to 300Ghz. But so do other appliances. Why does mobiles especially get put in the picture of being hazardous? Soon it will be clear whether the radio frequency emissions from mobiles cause health effect. Drivers who use there mobiles whilst driving are the only “health risk” that can be proven, the drivers get distracted and lose control over the vehicle. Technology invented something for this, hands-free sets.
But now the question is do those hands free sets really solve the problem? Researchers now are looking at if the hands free sets don’t cause other problems. A report from the magazine “which? ” said that hands free kits raised levels if radiation to the head from mobile phones by up to three and a half times. The consumer association immediately stressed that it had done no research into this whether this radiation could cause damage to the brain. That just proves that whenever there has been research a report is released to prove that research wrong. Probably is done not to cause any chaos.
Mobiles are said to cause brain tumors, they say this because there was found to be more tumors of the same kind amongst mobile phone users. Mobiles cause memory loss, radiation sickness. Mobiles can disturb your sleep pattern, according to the researchers from the university of Zurich, mobile phones increases brain activity during our sleep. A really strange result of the use of mobile phones is that mobile phones can release the poisonous mercury… Mobile Phone On College Campus Mobile Phone on college campus Nowadays, mobile phone is no longer the simple communicational tool for individuals.
It has become a comprehensive media with powerful functions for information communication. The epoch of mobile phone is approaching, which implies a information revolution of human with wide and deep effects—the sixth media revolution.

Mobile phone, as the symbol of development of digital technology, should play an essential role in education when we try to build up our campus culture. There is no doubt that new media technology has an innovative effect on the campus culture. Firstly, on moral education, mobile phone has created a new education mode, as well as the advanced education methods for it.

Many students use the mobile phones to convey the information, which can’t be expressed face to face.
This will shorten the distance between the teachers and students. Secondly, when talking about teaching management, many schools begin to cooperate with Telecom Corporation and Propagation Service Company to a new platform for transmitting information, so that it can fulfill the digital management of the information of teachers, students and parents.

Disadvantages Of Mobiles Mobile Phones – Technology – Disadvantages Mobile Phone Technology – Disadvantages The development of mobile phones brought convenient and advantages to the world. Communication between people and people are easier and fast. Though, the disadvantages brought along with the fast grown technology cannot be ignored. These problems not only influenced people personally but also the society. Symptoms caused by the radiation of mobile phones are one of the most argued problems.
Many scientists believe that the radiation from the mobile phones may cause the users to have different symptoms such as headache, earaches, blurring of vision and even causing cancer. Though, these problems are still under research. Mobile phone users are advice to reduce the usage on mobile phones if it is possible. Mobile phone addiction is a big social problem. Psychiatrists believe that mobile phone addiction is becoming one of the biggest non-drug addictions in the 21st century.
Along with the age drop of the mobile phone users and the ease of prepaid method provide by the system operators, most teenagers now own their own mobile phone and network service. Teenagers are engaged on their mobile phones all the time, no matter on phone calls, using SMS text messages, personalising the mobile phones with ringtones and pictures etc. Besides this, many people are running after the lastest mobile phones. New models of mobile phones are released almost everyday. In order to get up-to-date, people tend to change their mobile phones once in a while.
These became habits among the mobile phone users causing them to spend unnecessary cost on mobile bills and costs. Cyber bullying is also another issue among the disadvantages of mobile phones. Cyber bullying is a bullying act using offensive words and behavior via online chatting, emails or SMS text messages. It was showed that the psychological effects of cyber bullying are much severe that face-to-face bullying. This problem now is among… If you were looking back about 10 or 15 years ago, it was rare to see a teenager walk down the street chatting on a cell phone.
However, as more and more parents are looking for the added convenience of being able to stay in contact with their kids at all times, the numbers increased. Now, the numbers of teens with cell phones have grown to the point that they account for the majority of the world’s mobile phone users. While most people can appreciate the reasoning for giving a teenager a cell phone for safety or security reasons, the numbers are so dramatic that is has left a strong and negative impact on us all. According to Nielsen Mobile, your typical 13?17 year old sends and receives more than 1,700 text messages a month.
These numbers are huge compared to the 357 text messages the average person deal with every month. The problems aren’t necessarily the size of the numbers (unless the user isn’t on a text plan, in which case at 10 cents a shot, they are paying over $170 every month), but when and where the messages get sent. Tons of text messages are being sent from students during classroom time. Due to the fact that some messages are being sent during tests, and that most of the modern smartphone include Internet functionality, the likelihood that a student may try to cheat on an exam becomes quite great.
This has caused most of the schools to ban the use of cell phones in the classroom. Some schools have gone as far as to confiscate any devices. Some students are sending text messages that include nude or semi?nude pictures, which have brought up issues with child pornography laws. In the United States alone, over 20% of fatal car crashes involving teenage drivers were the result of cell phone use. This number continues to grow, and similar statistics are occurring in other parts of the world, as well. In the midst of all of the troubles caused by teenage cell phone use, is there anything a parent can do to protect their children?
Here are a few suggestions on how to look after your cell?phone?obsessed teen. 1. Establish Guidelines Educate your kids on the responsibilities of cell phone use. Let them know what is acceptable and unacceptable. Set time frames as to when the phone can be used, when the phone should be turned off, or when the phone should be placed in the parent’s trust. If you don’t set guidelines, your kids could simply run amok. 2. Embrace The Technology Instead of calling your daughter to find out what time she will be home, send her a text message.
Rather than trying to get your son to watch a segment on TV about the risks of texting while driving, send him a link to the video. If you embrace the technology that your kids use, you will have a better time communicating with. 3. Educate Yourself on The Lingo With a 160 character limit for a text message, the use of abbreviations is quite common. And while you might know that LOL means “Laughing Out Loud”, do you know what DUSL or PIR means? Would you know if the message your son or daughter received was innocent or if the message included sexual innuendo?
Besides the character limits; many teenagers end up using abbreviations in their messages in an effort to leave their parents in the dark. If you know that DUSL means “Do You Scream Loud”, or that PIR means “Parents In Room”, you will have a better idea on what your kids are saying and doing with their friends 4. Monitor Their Activity Who was your son talking to at 12:30 in the morning? Did you know someone was sending your daughter nude pictures? You could look through their phone, however most teenagers will delete their call or text logs from their phone if they think you are snooping.
There are other ways to get the information you need. First thing is to check your bill. If your carrier doesn’t already provide you with detailed billing, ask for it. While it may cost you a couple extra dollars a months, it can provide you with some added peace of mind. The other route you can take is to install spy software on their phone. Programs like Mobile Spy allow you to monitor your teenager’s text messages, call information, and even provide you with their GPS location. You can verify their whereabouts in real?time simply by logging into your account.

Mobile Phones In Schools Students have been invited to contribute feature articles to the school web site on the topic: ‘Rules, such as the ban on mobile phones, benefit everyone’. Rules, such as the ban on mobile phones, benefit everyone. Daniel Juniper The recently introduced ban on mobile phones, in our school is a win-win situation for both us students and parents.
Our grades will benefit highly and the ever lowering values in etiquette at our school shall benefit too. Although, as our lives grow forever more dependent on such technology, it will become demanding to refuse mobile phone use eternally. Within the near future, discussions need to be held on the long term practicality of this new rule. However controversial it is, this ban needed to be imposed on us. Everyday we are disrupted by students taking their phones outside classrooms, we see students playing video games and sending text messages during class, we are constantly distracted from phones ringing and we can never seem o get away from the eyes of peering camera-phones. It is understandable that teachers have a fear of students cheating using their phones, with nearly every student possessing a phone of their own; it would be a very easy offence to undertake. The obvious negative aspects to mobile phones in schools are vast and solid. It is reasonable to assume that mobile phones are a distraction from our learning. They are not essential to life at school, and possess great risks to our fellow students and with the sceptics blaming cancer on mobile phone radio frequency radiation, who are we to say they are wrong?
The recent introduction of video-capable phones has thrown personal privacy out the window. We now must fear getting changed into sports gear in front of other students. Never before has student access to pornography been easier. Not only can the perverted students videotape fellow students, they can access videos and images on the internet through their phone also. Negative Effects Of Cell Phones Technology is anything that people use to make a task easier. A cell phone is a type of technology that is a common thing to see in everyday life. The world and the people in it have gotten used to this technology.
Cell phones are making the lives of an estimated two hundred sixty five million Americans (Natterson 103) and three billion worldwide (Natterson 103), easier. As useful as cell phones may be, there are negative effects in over using cell phones. Cell phone technology was first developed in the 1980’s, but cell phones became common in the early 1990’s (Firestone 24). As time progressed so did the cell phone’s technology. Cell phones became digital in the early 1990’s; making them more affordable and small enough to comfortably carry anywhere (Firestone 24).
A few years later the cell phone underwent another change. In 1996 cell phones began to change again with a new technology allowing cell phones to access the Internet (Firestone 25). These smart phones became instantly popular. By the early 2000’s smart phones were common. Users could check e-mails and browse the web with applications made for cell phones (Firestone 25). “Cell phone signals can be broadcast over wide areas. Each broad cast area is called a cell. That is how cell phones got their names” (Firestone 23). These cell phone signals are carried out through radio frequencies.
Cell phones use two radio frequencies at the same time, meaning they are duplex devices (Firestone 24). A cell phone would only be able to work like a walkie-talkie if they were not duplex devices. Since cell phones are duplex devices, they use two radio frequencies. One transmits sound and the other receives it, allowing two people to talk at the same time (Firestone 24). Two of the main parts of a cell phone are the capacitor and the battery. A cell phone’s capacitor moves and stores electricity at a reliable rate (Cunningham 15). Without it a cell phone could not function properly. The capacitor is usually made…
