Since the dawn of time, people have found ways to communicate with one another. Smoke signals and
tribal drums were some of the earliest forms of communication. Letters, carried by birds or by humans on
foot or on horseback, made it possible for people to communicate larger amounts of information between
two places. The telegram and telephone set the stage for more modern means of communication. With the
invention of the cellular phone, communication itself has become mobile.
For you, a cell phone is probably just a device that you and your friends use to keep in touch with family
and friends, take pictures, play games, or send text message. The definition of a cell phone is more specific:
it is a hand- held wireless communication device that sends and receives signals by way of small special
areas called cells.
Walkie - talkies, telephones and cell phones are duplex communication devices: They make it possible
for two people to talk to each other. Cell phones and walkie- talkies are different from regular phones
because they can be used in many different locations. A walkie- talkie is sometimes called a half- duplex
communication device because only one person can talk at a time. A cell phone is a full- duplex device
because it uses both frequencies at the same time. A walkie-talkie has only one channel. A cell phone has
more than a thousand channels. A walkie- talkie can transmit and receive signals across a distance of about
a mile. A cell phone can transmit and receive signals over hundreds of miles. In 1973, an electronic
company called Motorola hired Martin Cooper to work on wireless communication. Motorola and Bell
Laboratories ( now AT& T) were in a race to invent the first portable communication device. Martin
Cooper won the race and became the inventor of the cell phone. On April 3, 1973, Cooper made the first
cell phone call to his opponent at AT& T while walking down the streets of New York city. People on the
sidewalks gazed at cooper in amazement. Cooper's phone was called A Motorola Dyna- Tac. It weighed a
whopping 2.5 pounds ( as compared to today's cell phones that weigh as little as 3 or 4 ounces)
After the invention of his cell phone, Cooper began thinking of ways to make the cell phone available
to the general public. After a decade, Motorola introduced the first cell phone for commercial use. The
early cell phone and its service were both expensive. The cell phone itself cost about $ 3, 500. In 1977, AT
& T constructed a cell phone system and tried it out in Chicago with over 2, 000 customers. In 1981, a
second cellular phone system was started in the Washington, D.C and Baltimore area. It took nearly 37
years for cell phones to become available for general public use. Today, there are more than sixty million
cell phone customers with cell phones producing over thirty billion dollars per years.

During the 19th century, women in the U. S organized and participated in a large number of reform
movements, including movements to reorganize the prison system, improve education, ban the sale of
alcohol, and most importantly to free slaves. Some women saw similarities in the social status of women
and slaves. Women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy Stone were feminists and abolitionists who
supported the rights of both women and blacks. A number of male abolitionists, including William Lloyd
Garrison and Wendell Phillips also supported the rights of women to speak and participate equally with
men in anti- slavery activities. Probably more than any other movement, abolitionism offered women a
previously denied entry into politics. They became involved primarily in order to better their living
conditions and the conditions of others.
When the Civil war ended in 1865, the 14th, and 15th, Amendments to the Constitution adopted in
1868 and 1870 granted citizenship and suffrage to blacks but not to women. Discouraged but resolved,
feminists influenced more and more women to demand the right to vote. In 1869, the Wyoming Territory
had yielded to demands by feminists, but eastern states resisted more stubbornly than ever before. A
woman's suffrage bill had been presented to every Congress since 1878 but it continually failed to pass
until 1920, when the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote.
