06/30/2017 PageGate Helps Reduce Response Times in Rural Areas

According to Kurtti, the fire department was paged at 11:49 a.m. and got help from the McMillan Township, Trout Creek and Watersmeet fire departments, Sonco Ambulance and the Michigan State Police on site.

The scene was cleared around 2:42 p.m., Kurtti said. I…would like to thank everyone for responding and helping out as many of us work out of town and had a lot of distance to cover. Without Page Gate, a new system used by MSP Station 80 in Negaunee that sends a text message to our phones, most of us would have been (too far) out of pager range to be notified.

Kurtti said the new system has been in place for seven months has been helping increase response times in rural communities.

03/15/2017 How to block text messages on iOS and Android

Regardless of which feature-rich smartphone you have, its main function is to keep you in contact with the people in your life. Calling someone is one way to catch up, but it’s hard to argue against texting and SMS messaging, which, for many, is faster and more convenient.

However, there are times when you may receive a message from a contact you’d rather not see again, or get a random message from someone with a questionable number. Sure, you can delete the message and move on, but a much more permanent solution is to block those people entirely, thereby preventing their texts from reaching you until you decide otherwise. Thankfully, both iOS and Android devices allow you to easily do this, and we’ve taken to breaking down the various ways to do so.

Texting has become a major mode of communication and coordination for many workplaces, allowing colleagues to exchange information rapidly and effectively.

02/14/2017 How Text Messaging Tap And Encourage Students To Apply for College

With the hundreds of thousands of high school students who graduate every year, many of them make unwisdecisions about where to go to college or whether they should be going to college. A lot of them make the wrong choices about the institutions they enroll to, and a lot more even decide to never enroll at all.

In order to close this gap, a new approach in the form of text messaging was put in place to reach students during summer and encourage and remind them of the deadlines and the requirements of the college or university they intend to apply for. This is in fact a smart move because young people love to text and this form of communication has already somehow replaced phone calls.

In a study, 72 percent of low income students who got the text message decided to enroll in college, according to NY Times, compared to the 66.4 percent who were not able to get the information.

02/12/2017 Text Your Way to College

Every year, hundreds of thousands of high school seniors make bad choices about where — or whether — to go to college. Some who would excel at top-ranked institutions opt for second-tier institutions. And more than 200,000 students who have been accepted by colleges never enroll.

The good news is that, for students in both groups, a dollop of information or a helpful nudge can change their decisions.

Many high achievers from poor families don’t even consider elite schools. Scared off by the sticker price, they enroll at community colleges and less selective institutions instead. That is one reason 72 percent of students at the most competitive universities come from families in the top quarter of the income bracket, while students from families in the bottom quarter make up only 3 percent.
