  • Too much texting makes students less happy, study shows
  • Indoor air pollution a concern for EPA  
  • Cleveland man pleads not guilty in cold case indictment
  • Hyland Software rumored to be prime for takeover
    The region’s largest software company may be up for sale.

    Reuters news service reports the Northeast Ohio startup Hyland Software could be worth $1.2 billion.

    The Plain Dealer reports that company officials deny rumors of a sale.

    The San-Francisco based private equity firm Thoma Bravo LLC owns a controlling interest in Hyland.

    The company employs more than 1,000 people at its headquarters in Westlake.


    Too much texting makes students less happy, poorer grades, study shows 
    A new study shows that spending too much time texting, web surfing, and even talking on a cell phone makes people more anxious and less happy.

    Researchers at Kent State University found that college students who spend the most time on their cell phones also had the worst grades. 

    The study compared the amount of cell phone use against measurements of anxiety and life satisfaction.

    Researchers say they’re looking at college students because they are the first generation to grow up immersed in the technology.


    Indoor air pollution a concern for EPA
    Environmental and health officials plan to meet with residents of a suburban Dayton neighborhood about vapor intrusion that is causing dangerous indoor air pollution.

    The U.S. EPA says vapor intrusion occurs when underground pollutants give off dangerous gases that can rise up through the soil and seep into buildings through foundation cracks and holes, causing unsafe indoor pollution that can make people sick.

    The EPA's investigation started last summer after agency officials conducted some sampling in the area.


    Cleveland man pleads not guilty in cold case indictment
    A Cleveland man facing a possible death sentence has pleaded not guilty in the 1984 slaying of 14-year-old girl.

    Fifty-eight-year-old Hernandez Warren entered the plea Monday to an updated indictment charging him with aggravated murder, rape and kidnapping. He was jailed without bond.

    The new indictment including death-penalty specifications was returned last week.

    Investigators say DNA evidence linked Warren to the killing of Gloria Pointer. She went missing while walking to school in Cleveland.

    Authorities say Warren lived in the same neighborhood as the girl.
