These days, with the significant developement of cell phones, they enable users to entertain such as surfing the internet, sending photos or downloading videos and games. According to a research, the number of people accessing the web through mobile phones is now accounting for well over 15% of worldwide internet usage. Furthermore, some Office applications for mobile phones, for example, Miccrosoft Office are helping employees do their business more effectively.

Although it is true that people are now getting a number of advantages from mobiles, these communication technologies also have several negative impacts. Firstly, using cell phones too much will probably be harmful for human's health as it can increase the risk of brain cancer. In addition, children are spending a lot of their free time on using mobiles with the purpose of chatting or playing games. This is time consuming and affect negatively on their studies. Lacking of face-to-face communication is also the result of using mobiles. Instead of going out or dating, many people prefer to stay at home and use their cell phones to connect to others.

In general, mobile phones have both pros and cons to our society. They make the people's lives and works become more convinient. Yet, mobile phones still impact badly on health, time and communication of individuals. To advoid these problems, each…...

...carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas can metastasize, or spread to other parts of the body. C. Melanoma Skin Cancer is the most dangerous form of skin cancer, it kills one person per hour, these cancerous growths are most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or tanning beds. These tumors originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis. Melanoma is caused mainly by intense, occasional UV exposure (frequently leading to sunburn), especially in those who are genetically predisposed to the disease. Often the first sign of melanoma is a change in the size, shape, color or feel of a mole. 1. Fair-skinned people have a higher risk for melanoma 2. Melanoma is also more common in people who live in areas with large amounts of UV radiation from the sun, such as the Southwestern United States. 3. Tanning booths and sunlamps also use UV light. These artificial sources of UV light can damage skin cells and increase the risk of melanoma. 4. Some people may have a hereditary defect that increases their risk of melanoma. 5. Most melanomas have a black or black-blue area. Melanoma may also appear as a new mole. It may be black, abnormal or "ugly looking." 6. Melanoma can be cured if it is diagnosed and treated early.

The concept of the cellular phone was produced by Bell Laboratories. The first actual cell phone was made in 1973 by Martin Cooper of Motorola and other assisting inventors who used the idea of the car phone and applied the technology necessary to make a portable cell phone possible. Cell phones were first made available to the public in 1984. Back then, they were very large, expensive instruments. The first cellular phones to be created were very large and bulky. This made them difficult to carry around. The first cell phone came to the market in 1984 from Motorola and weighed 2 pounds. It was a DynaTac 8000X which was selling for $3,995. A few years later, in 1991, the Motorola......

...every 100 people. There is nothing strange in this fact, as modern people need phones in all spheres of their lives – professional and personal. But we do not notice how much we depend on cell phones and what effects their excessive use might bring. There are certain harmful health effects, which might be caused by the immoderate use of cell phones. According to modern researches, the most menacing problem is connection between cell phones and cancer. Even though the data remains controversial, most scientists agree that there is a certain threat from using cell phones too much. It is reported, that people who talk on the phone for several hours a day are 50% more likely to develop brain cancer. The reason for this is the radio waves produced by mobile phones. It is calculated, that every minute the human brain receives about 220 electromagnetic impulses, which are not necessarily harmful, but which definitely affect the brain in cases of prolonged impact. Recent studies report two types of brain cancer may occur acoustic neuronal. Apart from cancer risk, mobile phones influence our nervous system. They may cause headaches, decreased attention, shortness of temper, sleep disorders and depression, mostly among teenagers. Radio waves are not the only reason for such symptoms. It is the sad reality, that nowadays many people, especially youth, experience lack of human contact, and they try to compensate it by mobile-phone communication, which is not an adequate substitute for......

...innovations and changed the way people interact in business, schooling and personal communication. While traditional mails required time and a higher cost to send, emails are instant and cheaper. Internet allows oral communication at an easier cost and the ability for video calls at a cheaper rate than conventional telephone calls. This can be done between parties in different ends of the world. While the idea of a global village came to be long before the internet became globally accepted, it has made it a true reality. So the fact that cell phones now allow users to have access to all these internet features shows that there will be more changes in every sphere of our lives. People can transact business in any part or place simply through their phones. Students can study for their exams as they go about their ordinary lives or as they sit on a vehicle. People can send money at their convenience without having to go to a bank or through computers. Social networks allow people to interact and make new friends. People are different in this world and there are those who are either shy or anti social for one reason or the other. Phones and the many features they have allow people who are shy of personal contact to socialize with other people due to the anonymity of the participants. This can boost their confidence as they learn tat communication isn’t so hard and might motivate them to venture out to the real world and meet these new people.

...smallest particles and the farthest objects in the known universe. Mathematics allows scientists to communicate ideas using universally accepted terminology. It is truly the language of science. We benefit from the results of mathematical research every day. The fiber-optic network carrying our telephone conversations was designed with the help of mathematics. Our computers are the result of millions of hours of mathematical analysis. Weather prediction, the design of fuel-efficient automobiles and airplanes, traffic control, and medical imaging all depend upon mathematical analysis. For the most part, mathematics remains behind the scenes. We use the end results without really thinking about the complexity underlying the technology in our lives. But the phenomenal advances in technology over the last 100 years parallel the rise of mathematics as an independent scientific discipline. United States Students Lag in Math and Science The following report is from a February 1998 article in the Encarta Yearbook. United States Students Lag in Math and Science United States high school seniors scored near or at the bottom of a multinational study of student performance in science and mathematics, according to results released on February 24, 1998. Final results from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), said to be the most comprehensive ever, also showed that U.S. students' aptitude for mathematics and science declines as they get older.

...Raymond Dyer 1 How Cell Phones Have Changed Our Lives Ever since the mid 1980s, cell phones have been quickly moving their way into our everyday lives, especially with the introduction of camera phones in the early part of the new millennium. As cell phones evolve they have more and more of an impact on our everyday lives and I want to just how much they are impacting. As with new technology in any other form, cell phones have changed greatly over their relatively short life spans. As these changes occur, so does the populations like and sometimes dislike for these new smart phones. One of the major problems occurring with cell phones in modern times is that people use them at inappropriate times, such as when they are checking out of a grocery store. Even though there are a couple negative aspects about cell phones, my research and my paper are going to mainly the benefits of cell phones in the United States of America. My research focuses on a couple of key areas in cell phone communication, such as the evolution of cell phones, text messaging, smart phones and other cell phone applications as well as my own research including a survey that I distributed to some of my classmates. The History The first cell phone was much different than what we have today. In 1984 the Motorola Dyna TAC8000X was released into the market (Associated Press, 2005). This phone was the first of its kind and was totally unlike anything that anybody in the United States had ever...

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......

Like any gadget, cell phones evolved over time, and each stage was very interesting. It keeps up with the ongoing changes and demands of the people who use it. The real story started with radio technology. These were used to communicate and are linked on a central data base. The first official cell phone was used by the Swedish police. This was in 1946. They did it by connecting a handheld phone to the telephone network. It was quite similar to the two way radio. During that decade, cell phones were simply not practical. People can make six phone calls and the battery was already dead. The electronics used in cell phones that we see now were first developed in the 1960s. During this time, the technology...

Nowadays, almost all work and human activities done are assisted by machines. Gadgets aid us in almost everything we do and it has really impacted the way we live our lives. Everything from cooking to studying uses electronics in some way. We cannot deny the fact that we are now more dependent on machines and technology to make our lives easier, especially in this time and age. But one of the most universally-used gadget in this age is the cellular-phones or simply known as cellphones. A cellphone is a portable device whose primary purpose is to make and receive calls for easier and more convenient communication. In today’s time, it’s very hard to find a person who does not own a cellphone. According to Yopie (2011) in her article “Cellphones in our Daily Life”; Cellphones, formerly regarded as a luxury, are now one of the basic needs of our lives. Currently, almost all people carry cellphones, including young children. The mobile phones were barely portable compared to how we see cellphones today. Motorola was the first company to produce a handheld mobile phone, made by Martin Cooper in April 1973. The first ever mobile phone used to make a call was known as a brick phone because of its brick-like shape and size. In 2000, Nokia released their globally-successful Nokia 3310, packaged......

...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......
