Extracts from this document...


Physics Can-do task. What advantages or disadvantages are there of having a telephone mass at your school? I deliberated in finding you a result, never the less I will give you an unbiased view point and give you a pragmatic answer... Consequently I have prepared a list of bullet points for and against for the answer... For * Good phone signals are in place so a teacher can easily contact others (via mobile phone) if the conditions are stormy. * If a phone mass was put into place, company's across the country would manufacture there businesses nearby so all employees could conveniently access strong phone signals meaning Clayton would be popular village meaning a boost in local economy... * People would see Clayton as a more business friendly town, meaning more leisure prospects because companies might set up major offices and buildings... * Small towns may be transformed into a thriving city because a brilliant signals... ...read more.


* More shops would appear because the town would be so popular meaning lots of people would buy products from there shop... * There is no real evidence to suggest that the EM radiation used in cellular communications is harmful.

Conclusion This is a very debateable subject, however I hope the bullet points I have willingly provided have made it easier for me to make a strong decision... If I was put in charge of making this decision I would be for the telephone mast because it would bring major companies to Newcastle-under-Lyme which would be excellent for the economy, There are about 70 million mobile phones in use in the UK which of whom need to base stations, this is why one should be made in Newcastle because they have to be made! People may protest and rebel about this although this wouldn't matter too much because after a while people will forget...If we did put a telephone mast in Newcastle there is a chance that Newcastle under Lyme could be completely transformed for the best! Some major disadvantages would be that it could cause harm towards the civilians and that the change could anger the more older public because they might not like thriving city's and prefer the quite villages... ?? ?? ?? ??
