At a glance, the internet is one of the best invention ever made by mankind. One of the most important concept the internet had given to us is the power to convert ourselves from a consumer to a participation. In other words, the internet actually gave us a chance to express our opinions, whereas we can only consume when it comes to traditional television. Believe it or not, the internet saves us a huge amount of time in our everyday life. Since the internet is packed with useful informations and with just some simple clicks, students can do their homework or research on anything in the comfort of their room. Compare to the 1950s, whereas if you were to do a research on a certain subject, skimming through thick books in the library was

The Intern yep April 9, 2012 yep The Internet The internet has changed the world as we knew it. The world no longer communicates, does business, or perches commodities in the same a traditional way. E-mail, instant massager and chat rooms were the first innovations to be used by the public. As time went on
As one of the 90’s kids, it was quite hard for me to believe that the existing circumstance of our civilization was all developed in less than 3 decades. We are exposed to the Internet in such a young age and grow up with it that we are automatically accustomed to it and deem the Internet as an essential of life. “How do people even live without the Internet?”, most of us wonder. The older generations, such as our parents and instructors, were born in a simpler era, completing their tasks manually and enjoying their lives in a more simplistic way. The civilization was aggrandized greatly in their 20’s and 30’s, the Internet suddenly came into their lives without any caution. The older generations encountered these enormous changes in their
Often times, the older generation gives the Internet a bad reputation. There are numerous articles claiming the Internet is generating a doltish society. Nicholas Carr is one of many writers who addresses the topic of our supposed intellectual decline entitled ‘Is the Internet Dumbing Us Down?’ According to Carr and multiple psychologists, the Internet can inhibit cognition. Because these people didn’t grow up with Internet, like the Millennials did, they fear the power of the World Wide Web. Like any great tool, if abused, the Internet can thwart progression. However, in this century, the Internet is an extremely popular and efficacious learning device. I cannot speak on anyone’s behalf but, the Internet was my first teacher, and it continues
I grew up with very little confidence hardly looked people in the eye and never really spoke to anyone. My parents signed me up for endless sport teams in hopes that I’d gain confidence. I soon came across the sport Rowing. Out of all the races I’ve rowed, one especially
Undeniably, the world can be an extremely hard place, especially being a 19- year old woman like myself. I believe women are often underestimated and treated unfairly in society. Although I acknowledge that I am still young, and there is great deal I am yet to learn both about myself and how it is that the world operates, I also cannot deny that I have had my fair share of challenges throughout my life.
Life normally doesn’t go the way you plan when you’re young. When I was little, I figured that when I was at the age of graduation I would be totally prepared to go off my own. As I sit and think about the topic of how my life is going, several thoughts pour into my mind. First, I think of how lucky I am. The past two years could’ve changed my life because of bad health. Through weeks and months of hospitals stays and hours spent in the doctor’s office and in the emergency room, I’ve come out lucky and I have almost returned to good health. Second, I think of those friends who I thought would be there for my whole life that are no longer a part of my life. I also look to the people who I never thought would be there by my side and realize
Have you ever wished that you could wake up with not a worry in the world? I know I have but life hits hard doesn’t it? As a young child in elementary school or even not in school yet life is easy I would say. The kids don’t have too much on their plate, all they are worried about is nap time, snack time, recess time you know fun thing. Then suddenly you grow up! Remember all the fun times you had? Now it’s all about work time, class time, dinner time heck half the time we don’t even know what bed time is. Although it all may seem scary and hard there are ways to balance school, work and family.
I did not know my grandpa until I was sixteen years old, sitting in a dim hospital room staring at his massive hands. I studied their calloused tips, beefy palms, and oil stained nails. I knew what crimes those hands had committed. I knew they had beaten my grandmother, cheated her, and abandoned my mother’s family. What I didn’t know, is that those blundering, graceless hands would change the course of my life and guide me on my path to becoming who I am today. For a reason unknown, I would find myself at his bedside every day after school, watching him slowing recover from a stroke that caused extensive damage to part of his brain. Brushing his teeth, playing memory games, and observing his team of healthcare providers moved me to want to pursue a career doing the same thing; caring for others.
The Impact of the Internet in America The prevalence of the internet has had a tremendous impact on American society in terms of physical health and emotional well-being. In the following pages, I will attempt to briefly highlight some of the positive and negative impacts I feel today’s internet technology has had on people living in The United States of America.
Introduction The world has never before been connected as much as it is today. One’s ability to communicate through various mediums is rapidly advancing, and this is much thanks to social media.
In 1999, Friends Reunited, the first online social network to achieve prominence, was founded in Great Britain aiming to relocate past school pals. In 2000 more than seventy million computers were connected to the internet. This played as the exposition while it seems it would be the climax of the cyberspace world. 2001 began the rising action with the start of Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia and the world’s largest Wiki was started. As well as Apple selling iPods. iPod’s would give people more access to personal music and then in later years resulting in the iPod touch which enabled people to download apps, games, books, and social networks.
