Flash mobs turn into crime mobs

Flash mobs , the gathering of people summoned (as by e-mail, text message, or social media sites) to a designated location at a specified time to perform an indicated action before dispersing, have now been used as vehicles for crimes such as looting and violence, according to reports.

With the advent of technology, criminal flash mobs are said to be more easy to organize and thus becoming rampant.


In this typical flash mob, a large group of geeks gathered at a mall in Bristol, U.K. in 2010 to enjoy an epic light saber battle which amused shoppers. Nobody is supposed to be hurt.

The most recent reported crime mob occurred in Los Angeles just last Friday. A rapper named The Game was identified by the Los Angeles County sheriff's department as the one who incited a telephone flash mob that overwhelmed the emergency phone system.

The rapper reportedly told his 580,000 followers to call the number (Compton station's hotline number) he tweeted if they wanted an internship with him.

Sheriff's Lt. Suzan Young told Associated Press that "the phones started ringing like crazy" around 5:20 p.m. The phone lines were said to be jammed for a couple hours.

The Game could face criminal charges, according to the report.

A more severe crime mob happened more than a month ago. On June 7, 2011, fifteen (15) teens reportedly stormed Chicago Transit Authority buses in two separate events, attacking their victims and darted off with electronic devices. Five (5) teens were nabbed by the police while the other members were still being identified and investigated.

Perseid meteor shower peaks on August 13th

The Perseid meteor shower, said to be the largest meteor display of the year, will be observed with its peak in the early morning hours on August 13, 2011, the PAGASA said.

Perseids meteor shower 2010 | Video courtesy of "meteorlog"

According to Wikipedia, during the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. They can be seen all across the sky, but because of the path of Swift-Tuttle's orbit, Perseids are primarily visible in the northern hemisphere. As with all meteor showers, the rate is greatest in the pre-dawn hours, since the side of the Earth nearest to turning into the sun scoops up more meteors as the Earth moves through space.

The Perseid meteor shower occurs every year and is visible starting mid-July. It peaks on August 9 and 14, depending on the particular location of the stream. FULL STORY...

Teens and Facebook: Positive and Negative Effects

Teens and Facebook: Positive and Negative Effects

Facebook and other social networking sites can have harmful effects on teens according to a recent study.

Harmful Effects of Facebook on Teens

Dr. Larry Rosen, a Psychology professor at California State University, outlined his findings before the American Psychological Association over the weekend.

“While nobody can deny that Facebook has altered the landscape of social interaction, particularly among young people, we are just now starting to see solid psychological research demonstrating both the positives and the negatives,” said Rosen.

Here are negative effects of Facebook on kids according to Rosen:
1. Teens who are heavy gamers or Facebook users have more trouble sleeping, higher levels of anxiety, depression, and stomach aches.

2. Young adults and teens who spend their days inside Facebook are more narcissistic and show more signs of other psychological disorders, including antisocial behaviors, mania, and aggressive tendencies.

3. Students who use more technology are likely to miss more school.

4. The more teens and adults use Facebook, the more likely they are to also use alcohol.

5. Students from junior high through college age were observed to generally check social networks or text messages every few minutes while studying, leading to lower test performance than students who focus for longer periods of time.

6. The average teen sends 2000 texts per month, which can lead to problems communicating with family and even carpal tunnel syndrome in a few cases.
Rosen also laid out the following positive influences linked to social networking:
1. Young adults who spend more time on Facebook are better at showing “virtual empathy” to their online friends.

2. Online social networking can help introverted adolescents learn how to socialize behind the safety of various screens, ranging from a two-inch smartphone to a 17-inch laptop.

3. Social networking can provide tools for teaching in compelling ways that engage young students.
“If you feel that you have to use some sort of computer program to surreptitiously monitor your child's social networking, you are wasting your time. Your child will find a workaround in a matter of minutes,” he said. “You have to start talking about appropriate technology use early and often and build trust, so that when there is a problem, whether it is being bullied or seeing a disturbing image, your child will talk to you about it.” Rosen advises parents.
