Your best bet, be it for general use in academic studies, health and safety concerns or simply security, would be to employ a digital two-way radio system, something like the Motorola SL4000. I’m specifically suggesting Motorola because they handle jobs like this all the time, several of which are detailed on their website.


In fact, the Motorola website details a case almost exactly like yours, where this technology was employed to great effect.


According to the site, the Cincinnati State Technical and Community College (CSTCC) was in a situation just like the one you outlined in your email. Here’s the basic issue...


“CSTCC is comprised of three campuses and over 1.3 million square feet. Until recently, the college used an all-analog system, components of which were 15 years old.  According to Raymond Mirizzi, Director of Facilities atCSTCC, “We needed to upgrade our whole communications system,” and it was vital that the entire campus be covered with a radio solution that would support very clear, consistent and secure communications”.


How a two-way radio network helped the situation is also detailed.


“The three-part campus needed a supervisory channel that would provide the flexibility for critical security officers and related personnel to communicate during times of crisis. Of course, because such emergencies can arise at any time, it was also critically important that the migration from analog to digital proceed smoothly and quickly because even brief downtime could put the campus at risk”.


There are lots of companies other than Motorola, of course, but there’s no denying that they are giants in their field, with a long history of customer satisfaction. They are something like The ‘A’ Team in that respect. Still, if your budget doesn’t quite allow for bells and whistles, there are a number of quality independent firms that could do a very good job at a slightly more reasonable rate.


The reality here is that bargains are the exception, not the rule. That’s why we’re always so happy when we get one. By far your best bet is to get an expert to design and implement your faculty’s new communications method. It needn’t be the biggest company, but you want to spend a good amount on communications, as they really do save lives.

What I don’t know about Harry Potter could just about fit in the Grand Canyon. I saw one of the movies a few years back, which I believe was titled ‘And The Goblet Of Fire’ and I only saw that one to score brownie points with an ex girlfriend who was Potter obsessed (at one point referring to the University she was attending as ‘Hogwarts’ before deriding me for being immature because all I wanted to do was hang out, play in rock n roll bands and have sex). The thing is that I’d probably have loved Harry Potter if I were ten years younger than I actually am. Instead, you’re about to be given the world’s worst guide to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Enjoy.


So here goes: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 by somebody who hasn’t seen it:


Basically, from what I can gather, Harry Potter is a little kid who has a lightning scar on his head. He lives in a closet, being strictly told that there is no such thing as wizards. Then he goes to wizard school and is taught by a number of weird teachers (who cannot be CRB checked, by the way). The school is a plummy public school and everybody talks with ever-so-posh ‘British’ accents. It’s so nice at Hogwarts that the ginger kid (who, to top it all is, I believe, named ‘Weasely’) doesn’t even get his head kicked in that much.


Then there’s this green bloke named Voldemort who’s pissed about something or the other and he’s supposed to be dead, but of course he isn’t. So he goes all Darth Vader on everyone and we’re all supposed to be scared, but its like, he doesn’t even have a nose (so how does he smell? lol) and he doesn’t stay dead when they do kill him. In fact, in the movie I saw, Voldemort actually killed this one kid, who was kind of a dick, but didn’t deserve that, so I guess he is quite gnarly. Then there are dragons and mermaids and Harry has to do all these tests which look much more fun than GCSE’s. He even gets to play a game with flying broomsticks, or something.




So, in the final movie, Voldemort hasn’t calmed down any. Apparently, he’s afraid that Harry (who is by now old enough to drink, swear and vote) is a legitimate threat to his power. Hogwarts must be a better school than my old one, (which pretty much opened its doors and turfed out an army of no-hopers). Then Harry fights Voldemort and um...dies, so I’m told. So there you go. I wish I could be of more assistance, but when it comes to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 that’s all I got. Sorry. The book is so long that it needed to be split into two movies, hence Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2, which is a pretty ugly title, all things considered.


At a meeting in a fashionable London hotel, I was asked by my manager and a prospective agent for my thoughts on Harry Potter and the phenomenon he has created, I answered that I think its great that kids are enjoying reading, whatever they read, and that the character seems fairly positive, also, the enormous success of the books has opened up a whole new world to kids authors everywhere, so I see it, largely, as a positive thing. Still, there is the vague worry that Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 was watched by more adults than kids, as the box office figures suggest. But I can’t argue, as last night I dreamed that me and my girlfriend were members of the Green Lantern Corps racing to steal a glowing blue hamburger from the centre of the universe...And defending that in Freudian terms has used up my entire quota of ‘gown up points’ for the day. So there! (Pokes tongue out and runs away).

Video games really come into their own where kids games are concerned. The potential for kids games as a learning resource is now being discovered and implemented. In the past, kids games were merely sanitised versions of existing games. Some kids games, such as ‘Spyro The Dragon’ or ‘Pokemon’ were fun for adults too (I admit it, OK!?).


The best kids games are those that can be played with a parent, friends or an older sibling. kids games won’t achieve much as educational tools if the poor tot is just dumped in front of them. Good kids games are those that gradually increase independence without sacrificing social learning and a sense of family.


Finally, kids games are being seen as educational. kids games are fun, challenging and provide an excellent introduction to the use of computers and electronics. In addition, kids games can be a shared, positive experience. kids games can aid the development of language, motor function and hand-eye co-ordination.


Now, while the rise of kids games may be an excuse for Dad to buy a PS3, it is nevertheless a good one. Of course, there are bratty and exploitative kids games out there and it’s incumbent upon you to be the judge. Ultimately, kids games should be fun, thrilling (in a safe way) and promote values such as honesty, responsibility and self-reliance.


Educational kids games seem to be the must-have product for the modern parent, a mixture of interaction (better than staring at the TV) and moderation (not as good as playing outside) ought to do just fine. Why not browse our selection; we might have something the big kid in you will enjoy just as much as your own little tykes.

The old adage that 'mobile phone emissions can cause cancer' is a commonly held belief that doesn't actually have a huge amount of evidence behind it. Nevertheless, a lot of people genuinely believe that they can/will develop cancer after extensive use of a mobile phone.


Amazingly, this does little or nothing to deter these very same people from using their phones all the time!


To go to the root causes of this belief, we must first talk about the pioneering work of American ophthalmologist (that's an eye specialist) Dr. Milton Zaret. Milton was a giant in his field (and was even unintentionally name checked in a 2013 issue of 'Batman' - no joke). Among Dr. Zaret's most notable accomplishments was his research into the damaging effects that microwave emissions have on the Human eye.


There is a obvious, present and growing danger to the whole population of the UK from contact to the whole non-ionizing segment of the electromagnetic spectrum. The danger can't be overstated because most non-ionizing emission injuries happen clandestinely, usually do not become obvious until after many dormant years, and when they do, the effects are rarely documented.


It seems that there was a lot of political pressure on other researchers to discredit Dr. Zaret and his findings, which resulted in some fairly bad science, but equally in the general notion that Zaret was mistaken. However, his work was never conclusively proved, nor reliably debunked, leaving the case open to interpretation.


Although the emissions that bothered Dr. Zaret (anything from microwave ovens to radar technology) are not exactly the same as mobile phone emissions, the fundamental argument is similar. To date, nobody has been able to prove, or disprove, that mobile phones can cause cancer.


Since the development of mobile phone equipment, studies have been conducted to see if they cause health risks. The fear is rational, given that mobile phones are low-powered microwave emitters, and some microwaves have been revealed to cause health risks. Consumers and Experts agonize that keeping a microwave emitting gadget near your head and/or brain could put you in danger for brain cancer or other harm. The fear is now and again greater in regard to Bluetooth earpieces, as the gadget is located inside your ear and thus even nearer to your brain.


So, the old argument has now been transferred to Bluetooth Headsets (you are by no means the first person to ask this question). The key point being that the earpiece itself is actually much closer to your brain than a mobile phone. However, naysayers simply consider the level of microwave emission produced by the earpiece to be so low as to render the effects negligible.




Essentially, because the widespread use of mobile phones is a relatively recent phenomenon (although it must be said that the first mobile call was actually placed 41 years ago by Marty Cooper), it is simply too early to tell, one way or the other.


Because Bluetooth earpieces are such a new facet, it is not possible to get statistics about continuing effects of constant contact. Some propose that inside 20 years, advanced studies will be presented, as the first generation to grow up using mobile phones and earpieces will in fact be guinea pigs for lasting effects. If you are really worried about the microwave emission from your mobile phone, don't use Bluetooth earpieces and simply use the speaker-phone alternative that is standard on most Mobile phones. even though exact study has not provided comprehensible solutions as to whether Bluetooth earpieces can result in cancer, this may be an area where you feel it is better to be safe than sorry.


In conclusion, it does seem unlikely thatyour mobile phone can give you cancer. It seems logical enough to assume that we'd all be feeling the effects by now, after nearly two decades of mobile phone use (the second of which actually involved the majority of the population). However, nobody really knows for sure... Dr. Zaret may yet be proven right as the prophet of doom (but, of course, we have to hope not).
