09/20/2012 Tracking Malaria Via Text

A new pilot project in Cambodia is allowing more than 3,000 volunteer health workers to use a special mobile phone text messaging service to report new cases of malaria, in addition to providing no-cost testing and treatment in remote parts of the impoverished nation, where access to health services can be difficult, Agence France-Presse reports. When a person tests positive for malaria, health workers begin them on treatment immediately and send a text message with the patient's age, gender, type of malaria, and location to the district health center, provincial health officials and a national malaria database in the capital Phnom Penh -- a process that used to take a month, AFP notes.

09/12/2012 Text Message Illegal Search and Seizure

At 6:08am, on October 4, 2009, Trisha Oliver frantically called 911 from her apartment in Cranston, Rhode Island when her six-year-old son, Marco Nieves, stopped breathing. The Fire Department took Marco to Hasbro Childrens Hospital, where he was found to be in full cardiac arrest. He died 11 hours later.

By 6:20am, Sgt. Michael Kite of the Cranston Police Department had arrived at the apartment, where he found Oliver, her boyfriend Michael Patino, and their 14-month-old daughter, Jazlyn Oliver. Kite observed a couple of stripped beds and linens on the floor, a trash can with vomit inside it, dark brown vomit in a toilet, and, crucially, a cell phone on the kitchen counter. Kite picked up the cell phone, and it was at that point—in the just-released opinion of a Rhode Island state court—that police proceeded to mangle a murder case and violate Patinos Fourth Amendment rights by viewing text messages without a warrant.

09/05/2012 Text Messagings Impact on Relationships

Text messaging is one of the foremost means of communication in today's society and has become a primary medium used in romantic and sexual correspondence. As a result, texting has nearly obscured earlier forms of relational communication, such as the written word. While texting enables romantic partners to develop and maintain their relationships, it also may create a potential strain. This research examined the degree to which texting has impacted romantic relationships.

Texting is a relatively new medium, and there is an absence of rules and guidelines for interaction. This absence of expectations may ultimately cause conflict or disappointment in relationships, specifically those romantic in nature. There is no established etiquette for acceptable message length, response time, or frequency of interaction. Users are therefore left to interpret texting etiquette based on their past experience and social cues from their partner.

There is minimal academic research focusing on the effects of texting on social behavior, communication and romantic relationships. Existing research surrounding this medium has included the use of texting in workplace and organizational settings or the sociolinguistic effects of the text message. Therefore, this study attempts to expand upon existing research to focus on the impact that texting has on relationships, specifically those that are romantic in nature.
