Metro Rail System in India : Boon or Bane

...Metro rail systems: Boon or bane for urban India? Indian cities will begin operating metro rail transport systems in seven cities, which taking the total number of cities with such systems to 11. But some fear that the sleek trains will be unaffordable for the vast majority of city dwellers, where 77 per cent of the population lives on less than 20 rupees (S$ 0.45) a day. Mumbai - based civil engineer Sudhir Badami, said that the metro transport system might be viable to some extent in big cities, but certainly not in smaller cities. They are already struggling to find money to provide their basic facilities such as piped drinking water, sanitation, education and health care. Others also think that building a metro network takes too long and is too disruptive. In contrast a bus system can be put in place within a year with minimal disturbance. They also believed a well – planned bus system can carry 30,000 commuters an hour. It is the same number as a metro rail system. In contrast, the director of urban development ministry in New Delhi, Prakash Singh said that buses are not feasible in some cities.

...), Venkatesh (2000) divides the concept of control into perceptions of internal control (computer self-efficacy) and perceptions of external control (facilitating conditions). In the context of mobile commerce, Pedersen (2005) also defines behavioural control as a second order construct that is formed by self-efficacy and facilitating conditions. Computer self-efficacy is defined as the degree to which people believe that they have the ability to perform a specific task on their computer (Compeau and Higgins, 1995) or smartphone, keeping in mind that, in this case, self-efficacy is related to the smartphone as well as the services under study. Our focus will be on the latter. External control relates to the facilitating conditions that represent the resources that are needed to use a specific system, as well as to download and implement software on the smartphone, and may include the availability of support staff to help users overcome any technological barriers (Venkatesh, 2000), financial resources (Thorbjørnsen et al., 2007) or support from mobile operators (Teo and Pok, 2003). Simply put, internal control relates to knowledge/self-efficacy, while external control relates to the support environment. Control has been shown to have an effect on key dependent variables, such as intention (e.g. Bhattacherjee, 2000) and behaviour, in a variety of domains (see Ajzen 1991 for a review). Both internal and external control factors play an important role in shaping people’s intention and...

I think that since cell phones are such a highly debated topic, it was an awesome subject to tackle, and I hope this paper can help people think twice about cell phone safety.

...What’s a mobile phone virus? A mobile phone virus or mobile malware - malicious mobile software - is a computer virus specifically adapted for the mobile phone environment and designed to spread from one vulnerable phone to another. A virus is a program code that replicates by being copied to another program. Viruses can be transmitted as attachments to an email or in a download file. Some viruses take effect as soon as their code is executed; other viruses can lie dormant. A virus that replicates by resending itself as an email attachment or as a part of a network message is known as a worm. Viruses can range from benign to quite harmful; they can erase data from the infected phone or send fake messages purporting to be from the phones owner. How prevalent are mobile phone viruses? The current security risk from mobile phone viruses and worms is low. Until many more smart phones or PDAs are in use, and users of these phones are regularly exchanging executable files, the risk will remain low. The mobile industry takes the threat of viruses very seriously and is continually monitoring its networks and working to protect users from any future risk from mobile phone viruses. There are also some simple measures that individual users can implement to protect themselves. What can I do to protect my phone? The following tips can help prevent problems with viruses on your phone: 1. Switch to Bluetooth hidden mode. If your phone has Bluetooth capability...
