Compound Cal, Always So Cutting Edge, Brings Some Breaking News.

Hey, I don't know about you, but I'm a little worried about these modern students and their mobile telephone handsets. I think it's possible that the sweet dears may occasionally become distracted.

Maybe I'm just being a worrywart.


According to a new study, college studentsare spending one-fifth of their time in class on their cell phones or digital devices when they should be learning. The study was done by the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Researchers say the main culprit is texting.

Almost nine out of 10 students reported that texting was their main diversion during class. About three-quarters say they emailed or checked the time on their phones. 70-percent reported checking social media, such as Facebook. Nearly half reported surfing the web, and one in 10 spent class time playing games.

More misery...
