The distracting effects of texting while driving activity of young adults are receiving increasing attention. The findings indicate that individuals involved in texting while driving also engage in other risky behaviors. Furthermore, frequency of texting while driving appears to be related to several factors, including self-control, attitudes toward texting and responsible driving, and opinions of peers, but interestingly not with social responsibility. In conclusion, the frequency of texting while driving of young adults appears to be related to several factors, suggesting possible ways the frequency of texting while driving may be affected. © 2016 Taylor & Francis.

The defense market trends for microwave applications in airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) are discussed. The basic subsystems found onboard a typical AEW&C platform include radar, data processing, displays, identification Friend and Foe (IFF), radio & data communications, and navigation. New platform developments and upgrades are typically utilizing some form of phased array radar to perform functions such as early warning and for general use in situations such as adverse weather alerts. The E-3D Sentry, best known as the AWACS, uses an older Passive Electronically Scanned Array (PESA) radar that continues to provide several major air forces with a system well matched to their needs. The Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) is developed so that AEW&C platforms mst ensure that all communications are secure from enemy eavesdropping.

GaN technology for RF applications has been widely adopted in defense applications, but commercial acceptance has been much slower. Wireless base stations seemed like the most likely commercial early adopter of GaN, but this market has been slow to take off. This paper will review the material properties of GaN material and how these translate to device parameters. Developments with incumbent LDMOS technology, along with new linearization schemes will illustrate future direction for the wireless base station market. The paper will close with forecasts for the overall power market and how quickly GaN revenue will grow. © 2014 IEEE.

The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) 2012 International Microwave Symposium (IMS2012), held in Montreal, June 2011, is themed 'Microwave without borders'. The event provides well-known speakers to present tutorial-type presentations and enable local speakers with an opportunity to present their work and get global exposure through publication in IEEE Xplore. The Society also conducts MTT-S Chapter chair meetings, and a concern voiced by Chapters was the difficulty for some of them to secure funding to host DMLs. In the thesis advanced by Prof. Fornengo's group, the ARCADE excess is the existence of lots and lots of very faint sources, rather like the make up of haloes of DM outside galaxies. It is found that when dark-matter particles collide and annihilate one another, they generate electrons and positrons, which subsequently generate radio waves via synchrotron emission as they travel through magnetic fields.
