Radu Zatreanu HS Web Design 10 B 02/13/12 We can't imagine our lives without it anymore, by having one using it from hour to hour on a daily basis. Multi-purpose as it had accustomed us, right from the beginning, the "Internet" has pushed well-established limits forward, in terms of jobs, socializing, financing, information or entertainment. Its full potential is not used, yet it will be discovered in future, it is predictable. However, there are numerous limitations reported to using such technology, as it creates dependancy. Deaths have been found out of children or teenagers spending 24 hrs. or more on the internet. Another serious problem would be the inverse effect of virtual socializing. Instead of having people talking to each other, you get messengers in form of (computer and internet), speaking for yourself. This affects not only the youth but also adults as it tends to change their moods/emotions and bring introverts out of them. However, it is important to look at the internet's history, how it all started, how it did progress over such a short period of time and most important, the complexity of its system. The history of the internet has its roots to as early as 1957, right after URSS successfully managed to launch the world’s first artificial satellite......

How to Solve Social Problems

...‘How Can We Solve Our Social Problem’ by Crone, J.is a book that show Practical approach to tackling problems in our community today but one would really as why have the governments never thought of introducing such ideas to deal with humanities’ social problems. It’s quite clear as much as some of the ideas sound very nice it’s difficult for any political arm to try to implement because of the long term and short term effects they will have on the community. A good example of an impractical ideas is the book concept of the American judicial system. Many times confessions are used as strong evidences in court however they can be very misleading if the confessions are false .In United States more than 400 untrue confessions (Cassell, 1998).these confessions may lead to wrong conviction which is inappropriate. Social Problems: Community, Policy and Social Action Third Edition Leon-Guerrero, A. Sage also doesn’t touch on the family bit which is the core of all social aspects. The books doesn’t also consider the values and beliefs that already exist in the community today. Beliefs don’t just fade away in one day. Only an organized strategy can see to the extinction of social beliefs and value. The two books have very nice ideas on how to revolutionize the social aspect of America but the writer forgot to discuss the reasons why some of the ideas cannot be implemented in the current situation in the America and the results that would be achieved if the ideas are implemented. ...

Internet Connection #10

...Cole R. Kingsley Professor Gray MGT 448 4/20/15 Internet Connection #10: Questions: 1.) Organization A refers to the place where I currently work at which is a family owned restaurant called The Outskirts located in Macomb, IL. Here, the primary job of employees is to follow the orders that come from the three bosses. They want everything to be done a certain way and if it’s not they may get frustrated. This is similar to Organization B, the place where my girlfriend worked at over the summer. She told me that at Famous Footwear, orders came from the top (managers) whether it was to stock more shoes or put a specific shoe on sale. Most employees there, just like at The Outskirts, were forced to abide by certain rules if they wished to maintain their jobs. Additionally, individuals in both organizations that didn’t rock the boat often got rewarded more. Although some organizations encourage new ideas and thinking outside the box, these two organizations seem to enjoy everyone doing what they are told with little confrontation or feedback. I like to refer to these organizations kind of like machines that don’t entirely care about their workers. 2.) A climate that supports innovation may have more productivity than a climate that does not. This is because if an organization encourages new ideas, the employees of that organization will be more willing to contribute and speak their mind about certain aspects. A perfect example of this is Google. There,...

How the Internet Changed Te World

...How the Internet Changed the World Information could only travel as fast as we could physically move it, before the 1960s. How can we relay information across a wide area quickly and reliably? The old way of business is soon to change, thanks to the internet. Connecting the world to a system of unlimited amounts of information will change the way we shop, bank, and pay bills. Making life a little easier. The internet also compiled information for libraries, scientists, and military members. Where will technology take our society? There were a number of great minds at work. J.C.R. Licklider of MIT created the internet in 1962(Howe). Leonard Kleinrock of MIT and later UCLA developed the theory of packet switching, which was to form the basis of Internet connections (Howe). Lawrence Roberts of MIT connected a Massachusetts computer with a California computer in 1965 over dial-up telephone lines. In the early development, the internet was called ARPANET. Which came online in 1969 under a contract led by the Advanced Research Projects Agency or ARPA (Howe). This was not the user friendly internet we know today. E-mail was brought into action sometime in 1972 by Ray Tomlinson. He was the first to adopt the “@” symbol. According to Howe, “In 1986, the National Science Foundation funded NSFNet as a cross country 56 Kbps backbone for the Internet.” The first efforts to index the internet was created in 1989. Peter Scott came out with Hytelnet in 1990, which stockpiled......

Cyberbullying and How Internet Privacy Is Involved

...Cyberbullying and How Internet Privacy is Involved Abstract This paper is going to be about how cyberbullying and internet privacy go hand-in-hand with each other. Cyberbullying is the use of electronic communication, like the internet and social media websites and cell phones, to bully a person, usually sending hurtful or embarrassing messages to them (Helen Cowie, 2013). Many of the articles that are going to be using for this paper talk about the different ways cyberbullying affects teens and young adults and also how internet privacy plays a role in cyberbullying. There is an article from Bob Sullivan (2013) that talks about how internet privacy is a complicated issue and there are criminals who break into websites to steal personal information. Since people can get someone else’s personal information, that makes it easier for a cyberbully to create a fake profile on a social media site, and make fun of and belittle someone else. Keywords: Cyberbullying, electronic communication, Cyberbullying and How Internet Privacy is Involved Traditional face-to-face bullying has been identified as a risk factor for the social and emotional adjustment of perpetrators, targets, and bully victims during childhood and adolescence. Bullies have now found a new way to reach their targets, by cyberbullying. They now can go on the internet and social media websites or use their cell phone. With the bully being able to do this they have the power to reach their targets at any......

How the Internet Has Affected Society

...Introduction The Internet is the decisive technology of the Information Age, as the electrical engine was the vector of technological transformation of the Industrial Age. This global network of computer networks, largely based nowadays on platforms of wireless communication, provides ubiquitous capacity of multimodal, interactive communication in chosen time, transcending space. The Internet is not really a new technology: its ancestor, the Arpanet, was fist deployed in 1969 (Abbate 1999). But it was in the 1990s when it was privatized and released from the control of the U.S. Department of Commerce that it diffused around the world at extraordinary speed: in 1996 the first survey of Internet users counted about 40 million; in 2013 they are over 2.5 billion, with China accounting for the largest number of Internet users. Furthermore, for some time the spread of the Internet was limited by the difficulty to lay out land-based telecommunications infrastructure in the emerging countries. This has changed with the explosion of wireless communication in the early twenty-fist century. Indeed, in 1991, there were about 16 million subscribers of wireless devices in the world, in 2013 they are close to 7 billion (in a planet of 7.7 billion human beings). Counting on the family and village uses of mobile phones, and taking into consideration the limited use of these devices among children under five years of age, we can say that humankind is now almost entirely connected, albeit with...
