This can help medical personnel detect certain patterns of ailments in their patients which can lead to their spotting progression of diseases in a society. Doctors can also take some help from information technology in recognizing symptoms and locating the origins of the symptoms using the experiences of other doctors who have had patients with similar problems.

Information Technology can also be helpful for doctors to keep track of their patients' medical history. The medical history, efficiently stored and presented, can help the doctor determine the medications that would suit the patient. It may also help him recognize if certain dangerous patterns are forming in the recurrence of a certain disease.

Most can made out of the potential of Information Technology if the medical personnel share their experiences in curing different diseases with others so that the other doctors can look up similar cases and know from the formers' experience the likely result of a certain suggested cure. But of course precautions have to be taken so that personal information of the patients is not made public. There are certain things that have to remain between the doctor and the patient. These details must not be compromised.

Pornography Censorship: Myths and Realities

Internet Pornography is a major concern of parents and many adults as well. The subject is a taboo to some extent and there are a lot of myths that shadow our minds regarding this.

The quantity of the explicit material

It is often believed that adult websites must be among the top most visited sites. But to surprise and please many of us, only 7 adult content websites make it to the top 100 most visited sites.

According to an academic research, only 4% of the websites on internet are porn sites. The research was carried out on the top one million sites. But this figure is of course debatable due to many reasons.

Is the objectionable material only restricted to some specific sites?

Another interesting perspective that drifts in mind is that can we actually say that only the porn sites contain explicit material? The answer is a sure negative. Many ‘safe’ sites are flooded with adult content. For example, YouTube has a massive database of such objectionable material. Similarly, many social media websites like Facebook also have pages and groups that cater to the adult market. But these sites are never labeled and are considered safe.

Pornography Censorship

Many governments, including the British Government, around the world look into Pornography censorship very seriously so as to save the young minds from corrupting. But the question remains that whether reliable and effective censorship possible?

After being said that many safe sites could also be explicit, effective censoring would mean visiting and checking each and every page on the cyberspace. But this is not humanly possible owing to the fact that there are billions of websites.

Using an automated algorithm or software might seem like a solution but this would result in blocking of many safe sites and allowing access to many undesirable sites due to the quality of material that they offer. Hence, this remains a blunt tool!

Saving the kids

The conclusion is that the only possible way to save children from view adult content is constant supervision. No other way could possibly block the content. Proper training, good guidance and a hawk eye upon the children can fruitfully save their innocence!

Is It Necessary to Turn Off Mobile Phone (or use Flight Mode) in Plane?

Flying has to be made safe in every possible way and extra care is often taken to make sure that a safe journey is made. But with the excessive use of gadgets and technology, this rule seems to get a lot of frowns, partly because it is never proved that an air plane went to blazes or crashed due to an interfering gadget.

The most annoying rule about flying is turning off the wireless gadgets, isn't it! You are stuck on a plane for several hours and you are asked to say goodbye to the sole thing of comfort. But is it necessary to turn off your mobile phone in the plane? Read on to find out...

What is the Rule for Using Mobile Phone in Airplane?

According to the set of laws, which are quite standardized around the world, the use of handy gadgets is not allowed below the height of 3,000m (10,000ft), even in "flight mode" which stops the communication of signals. Above this height, gadgets like laptops and iPods can be used, but mobile phones must remain off.

The Scientists's Stance

The electronics devices emit radio waves to communicate with the mobile networks and connect with the internet. The airplanes contain hundreds of avionics that communicate with the ground, keep track of all the mechanics that keeps the plane in air and help in navigation. It is thought theoretically that the radio waves coming out of the gadgets could interfere with these avionic systems and cause malfunctioning.

All the tech gadgets like tablets, laptops, Smartphones and iPods emit such radio waves. It is feared that a malfunctioning gadget could release stronger waves that could be hazardous.

No Proof?

Flying is said to be the safest mode of travelling in the modern world. Fortunately, very few accidents occur. No accident has ever been recorded to have been caused by an interfering gadget. Some experts say that you never know, maybe the black box could not record the real cause of malfunctioning as some accidents still remain a mystery.

Let's Stick to the Rule

US authorities are researching that the use of gadgets while flying is whether safe or not. But until the results are yet to be announced, it is wise to stick to the rule of switching off the phone or use the Flight Mode in your phone. Of course, you would not want to have a bad flying experience just because of an Angry Birds game.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Tablet Computers for Children

The market for tablets has blossomed very quickly over the past years. The Samsung Galaxy tabs and iPads have proven to be huge commercial breakthroughs. The portable nature of tablets, their small weight and attractive applications are some of the factors behind their enormous success. Tablets are popular among consumers of every age-group, but children are undoubtedly fascinated the most by their unique appearances and easy to understand functions. As a result, adult consumers are totally outnumbered by the children users. But before handing these tablets over to their young ones, the parents must be aware of their advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of Tablet PCs

The most notable advantage of the use of tablets by children is entertainment. Children can amuse themselves by playing thousands of interesting games which are in accordance with their age-group. Some educational games are also available on the Apple Store and Google Play which can prove to be very helpful in teaching the young ones alphabets and numbers. These games also enhance the reading, time-telling, mathematics, art and memory skills of the children and in turn, improve their mental capabilities. The use of tablets makes children more active physically as well as mentally.

Disadvantages of Tablet PCs

Although the use of tablets increases the mental sharpness of children and helps them in their early education, it also carries many disadvantages. The most prominent drawback of the use of tablets by children is the medical one. The intense rays coming out of the tablet screens can damage the eyes and result in nearsightedness. Especially children between 3-7 age are more affected because of their more sensitive eyes. Another downside of the use of tablets by children is that they can hinder the development of their communication skills. Children sometimes get entangled in the tablets to such an extent that they ignore their surroundings and do not communicate enough with the people around them. Recently, a study was carried out which showed that the children who use tablets for more than three hours daily have more chance of facing conduct problems by the age of seven than children who do not.

The use of tablets by children has both negative, as well as positive effects. It is the responsibility of parents to make sure that their children use tablets only in a productive manner and not overuse them to such an extent that they may prove harmful.
