Distracted driving is a major cause of car accidents in Florida, even more so as cell phone use and texting have increased.  Drivers who cause accidents by distracted driving are liable for the injuries they cause to others. Driver distraction occurs when the driver’s focus is on something other than the primary task of driving. Sixty-five percent of drivers with a college education talk on their cell phones while driving.
11% of all drivers under the age of 20 involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the crash. 40% of all American teens say they have been in a car when the driver used a cell phone in a way that put people in danger.
Tragic accident at Jacksonville Shipyards – will it fall under workers compensation immunity or intentional tort? Cell phone users are allowed to send messages of up to 160 characters using SMS technology. SMS is an acronym that stands for Short Message Service, more commonly known in some places as text messaging or "texting." This technology is a way to wirelessly send messages of up to 160 characters between cell phones or other devices. When a person sends an SMS message, he or she usually uses her telephone keypad or physical or on-screen keyboard to type out a message. Messages can be sent without the voice function of a cell phone being activated because it uses the control channel. A text message is limited to 160 Latin-based characters because the format of the signal used to transmit the data. The limited number of characters that can be sent via SMS has led to the development of a digital shorthand to communicate more information quickly.
Many text messages are sent from person to person, often as part of an electronic conversation.
SMS has also been used by a number of television networks and corporations to encourage consumers to interact with a product. Some online services have integrated SMS capability to allow for information to be accessed easily through a cell phone. In politics, text messaging has also been used to send messages from candidates to potential voters. The SMS protocol began with Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) standards created in 1985. The delivery of a text message is not guaranteed, with up to 5% of messages getting lost in transmission or delivered long after they are sent. Other texting problems can occur when the receiving individual’s wireless provider does not offer the same services as that of the sender. As the popularity of SMS has grown, so has the concern about people using their phones while doing other things, like walking or driving. SMS is not the only texting technology, but it is the standard used by most major cell phone networks. The user selects the recipient's phone number (or other address information) and clicks "send." From there, the message is sent to a short message service center (SMSC), which stores it and tries to send it on to the recipient.
This pathway is always active whenever the phone is turned on, and regularly sends and receives signals from the nearest cellular tower. This text lingo often drops vowels and superfluous letters, in addition to replacing words or sounds with representative numbers or single letters. This is also known as point-to-point (SMS-PP) messaging, and is used primarily for communications between individuals. Regional messaging, or SMS-CB, can be used to broadcast public announcements or for alerts from a cell provider regarding the coverage area. Some television competition programs, for example, allow viewers to vote for their favorite participants via text.
By texting a certain number, for example, a cell phone user may receive information ranging from local weather to the location of a bus station. It was not commercially available until 1993, and not all cellular service providers offered the service. More than 70% of adult cell phone users in the US reported that they used their phones for text messaging in 2010.
In general, wireless providers consider SMS to be lower priority than voice communications, and because of this, there has been criticism of text messaging as a means of delivering emergency notifications to the public.
The majority of wireless providers in North America use a 7-bit alphabet for text messaging. In the US, many states have laws against drivers using handheld cell phones for any reason, including making voice calls or texting. Do you see SMS ever having a serious role in the up-scaled technological society of tomorrow?
Research shows that drivers who talk on a cell phone while driving are four times more likely to be involved in a crash.
If the receiver is on another network, the message may travel through a gateway mobile switching center (MSC), which allows the different systems to communicate. The control channel is also used to set up voice calls, find the phone's location, and make sure the service is working correctly. In many cases, messages can also be sent to a cell phone — and sometimes received from one — via the Internet, using an email-to-SMS or web-based service. Text messaging can also be used to send advertising or application related messages to specific users or groups of users.
European television has pushed the idea even further, encouraging viewers of some shows to control the actions of characters on screen using their cell phone's SMS capabilities. Social media sites like Twitter™ and Facebook allow users to post messages to their accounts and receive updates by text.
Its popularity grew throughout Europe and in Asia throughout the 1990s and 2000s; one of the main drivers was it's price, which was often much lower than even a brief voice call. An 8-bit messaging system supported by some providers allows users to send image files in addition to text. As of 2012, 39 states and the District of Columbia ban all drivers from texting while driving.
Although cell phones attract the most attention, there are many in-vehicle and external sources of driver distraction.
The SMSC usually stores the message if it cannot be sent immediately and retries later; in some cases, however, the message will be dropped if it is not delivered successfully on the first attempt. For example, a television station might offer a service in which a viewer can provide the station with his or her cell phone number; in return, the station will send breaking news alerts via text to all users who've signed up for the service. Although other social media technologies have taken on more of this role, SMS is still a very effective way to spread messages among people, especially in countries where the Internet and other forms of communication are more restricted. Receiving an 8-bit message via a 7-bit provider is likely to result in a garbled string of nonsense text for the end user.
We carried it proudly all the way back to one of their houses and proceeded to patch the hole with a piece of plywood and tar. In fact, cell phone use is typically associated with lower crash risks than are many other common distracters. A drugstore might invite patients to register their phone numbers when they submit prescription information, allowing the store to text patients when those prescriptions need to be refilled and when they're ready for pickup. For example, reaching for a moving object, interacting with passengers, adjusting entertainment systems, and an outside person, object or event are associated with higher crash risks, according to a Distracted Driving study by the Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation Department.
Some abbreviations and symbols, like "LOL" for "laugh out loud" or the smiley face emoticon — :) — have made their way into other online communication, including emails and discussion forums.
I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky. One of the boys found a canoe paddle in the weeds and we three got into the boat and started to paddle out.
15: But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful. We feverishly paddled with that one oar and bailed out the water with our hands and an old can.

Barely we made it to shore and got out just before the boat sank below the water and headed downstream.
Wet, cold and shaking the three of us headed home knowing we would never tell our parents of this stupid adventure. We were lucky to be alive and it was only by Goda€™s grace that I can live to tell about it. 8: But God has shown us how much he loves us a€“ it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!Hebrews 13, vs. I would come home from work and plop myself in the chair for A? hour or so, wash up, change my clothes and eat dinner.
I can count on my one hand the number of times I played ball with my boy or took my daughter shopping. I feel sorry for my children for not being there for them and sorry for my wife because she raised the kids pretty much on her own and she did a great job of it.
I am sorry for myself also because the moments that I missed with my children can never be recovered. I thought I was doing my best by beingA a goodA provider but in my older wisdom I know that being a Dad was the most important thing they needed.
Sometimes that other road will bring you back to your original path and sometimes it will take you farther away from it. But God used him to gather and lead his people out of Pharaoha€™s slavery and split the Red Sea in two.A  Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and was cast into prison but became the second most powerful person inEgypt.
He created us, molded us, watches over our lives, provides for us, and when we die He brings us into His kingdom.
Or, maybe just maybe a smile or a kind word from you to a stranger may just prevent them from going home and ending their own life and their grandson will some day save the world. He will bring to light things that are now hidden in darkness, and will make known the secret purposes of people's hearts.
It was customary at that time for Rabbis (Jesus was onea€”it meant teacher) when they were among a crowd to say the first verse of a Psalm. Throw your troubled waters out of your boat and paddle on down that river of life with Him at your side. What He most likely was doing was wanting the rest of the people, and us, to say the rest of the Psalm.
You have ears, but you don't really listen.Psalm 13:2 -- How long must I worry and feel sad in my heart all day?
I have been praying for something to happen for 4A? years now and what I prayed for was not granted.
Leta€™s speak of reality a€“ He is God and He can do what He wants to or not do what He doesna€™t want to.
Kendall===============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop June 12, 2010.
We cannot command the Lord to do anything whether we do it in pleading, tears, anger, or desperation.
If God has the will, He may answer our prayers about life but nothing says that He absolutely has to. All we have is the hope that he will hear us, see what we are going through, and grant us a little drop of His mercy in this life. He will cure a cancer, heal the deaf, grow an arm back or bring someone back to life but that does not mean He will do it all the time. Lost loves, friends, jobs, disagreements with others, death of relatives, and depression are just some of the reasons we lose pride and hope in one self. He has given us guidance through His word (the Bible) and occasionally gives us a nudge or lesson to learn from but basically kicks us out of the nest like the mother bird does to face the challenges of life. We could go on with this forever so today I am just addressing those qualities in single people. With single people, it could just be the problem with finding the right a€?someonea€? to love.
The delay or loss of a past love (among other things) could send someone spiraling downward into a loss of respect for themselves. I get so frustrated at times that my prayers are not answered and I have to keep reminding myself that this is my life and I need to deal with it on my own sometimes.
Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men. Their job is to preach the message to inspire, encourage, and give hope to their congregations. They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text).
Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation.
If we are to be an example of His mercy to others, it can only be done with people of lesser stature than us. He wants us to spread the Gospel and not make up stories of what He has done for us personally in life. Just show others how you believe in His salvation and forgiveness and tell them of His Word.
From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar. If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups.
Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate.
He has promised everything in His kingdom of Heaven to those who accept His Son as Lord and Savior.
People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters.
People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations.
If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back.
Life here is just a temporary setback, trial and test to see if we are worthy of everlasting life sharing in His love -- or without it in a very dark place. So accept His Son as your Lord and claim the only real promise that He made to us --- Forgiveness and Salvation.
The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam. It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings.
The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking.
Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?.
He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season. He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict.
The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time. Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?.

You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart.
This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good. Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you. Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience. I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future.
If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better.
And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them. His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers. We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it. I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms. Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation.
It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done. So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship.
Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god. Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother.
That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself. Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped.
If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment. People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible). The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us. Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father? People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment. God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on. The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit.
We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults. He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people.
That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦. Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to). Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith? Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment. Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person. Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment. If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow. A Timothy McVey the mastermind on the Oklahoma bombing defied God and declared that he alone was the a€?master of his destinya€?.
A ==============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop August 24, 2010. Having a good relationship with your spouse, family, friends, or co-workers is usually based on a good two way conversational attitude.
To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He knows what we need before we ask but He likes to hear it from us also with some praise and worship attached.
Your Mom knows you need food and gives you healthy meals but approaching her and asking for a snack also tells her you would like some cheese doodles too. Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God.
They can be on your knees by your bed, in Church, or just during every day activities or work.
I try to concentrate not on an earthly or worldly fixture or thing but temporarily close my eyes (not while driving) or look up when I talk to Him.
I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord. What can flesh do to me?Psalm 121(NLT): I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? Go to a good book store and page through some and see which ones are comfortable for you personally.
They are good Bibles but one is paraphrased and one is in a so called modern language that, for me, does not read real well. I highly recommend The New Living Translation (NLT), The New Century Version (NCV), or the New American Bible (NAB). The first two are used a lot with Contemporary Christian Churches and the third contains extra books as it was designed to meet the needs of Catholic Christians. I also like the Good News Translation (GNT).A It is important that you like it and are comfortable with it.
