For all the advantages in terms of convenience, speed and delivery that the internet has provided to the average consumer and household, there are increasing concerns as to its influence on social conduct and etiquette. These concerns are centered on the fact that the premise of the World Wide Web has been outweighed by its impact, and despite its supposed benefits to individuals and families alike, it is often citied as a prominent factor in decreasing values and social behavioural trends.
The fact remains that while consumers can purchase and internet users can seek information through the vast resources of the internet, there is less and less need to venture into the outside world and communicate with other human beings through traditional conversation. This type of secluded environment in which young adults are thrust can contribute towards a restricted and introverted outlook on life, and in extreme cases develop anti-social behavioural trends amongst users.
Internet Usage and Education
One of the primary concerns around internet usage is its influence on the education of teenagers and young adults. With regards to the vast resources available on the World Wide Web, there are two schools of thought. One would consider that the diversity of information and opinion is beneficial to further education, and actively encourages the development of a considered point of view. However, there is a further notion that the internets depth of resource and often uncensored nature is confusing for impressionable minds and often contradictory to curriculum teaching.
One of the main issues is the increase amongst supposedly uneducated individuals who use to internet on a daily basis. While academic progress and ability is no guarantee of intelligence, those who have endured a lengthy and structured education are generally considered to be more rounded in terms of their knowledge, assertiveness and social integration.
Over 50 percent of all internet users over the age of 18 are without a high school education. This statistic is revealing, as it suggests that more than half of people who use the internet on a daily basis may already be lacking in knowledge of education structures and particular types of human interaction. This arguably renders them vulnerable to the vast information streams and outlets available on the internet, as they may be less equipped to judge informational resources against what they have learned in their formative educational experiences.
An Increase in all Age Ranges
Certainly, all age demographics have seen a vast increase in internet usage since the year 2000. The most extreme instances of more frequent usage are featured in people aged 30 and older, whereas the figures for adults aged between 18 and 29 have continued to rise steadily in the same time period. This is alongside statistics that suggest that an ever increasing number of teenagers aged between 12 and 17 are using the internet, with varying levels of censorship and parental guidance.
There are now nearly 3 times as many internet users over the age of 60 as there were at the turn of the century. This figure is indicative of the enhanced prominence that computers and the World Wide Web plays in contemporary culture, and the simple fact that the older generation of society are being coerced into using the internet in order to perform standard and everyday tasks. This trend in usage in also displayed in the demographics between 30 and 49 and 50 and 64 years old, with percentage increases of approximately 30 and 40 respectively.
The 18 to 29 age demographic has witnessed a 20 percent increase in internet usage since the year 2000, which while being a more gradual progression is still indicative of the rising trend. This age range is the most vulnerable to diverse and uncensored internet resource, as people in their late teenage years and early twenties are still developing maturing both mentally and physically. This means that they are still maturing in terms of their mindset and social etiquette, and an overload of visual and written information can be overwhelming and counterproductive to opinion forming.
A Social Consideration
There is little doubt that the internet has brought huge improvements in the access that society has to information and purchasing methods. However, questions remain as to whether young and immature minds can cope with such a powerful tool and its diversity of conflicting information. The main issue is that sensory overload can confuse values and under developed opinions, and actually confuse any decision making process. Secondary to this, it is arguable that the more activities that an individual can conduct online then the less time they will devote to social interaction and traditional communication methods.

“Askew” – a sculpture by Roxy Paine at North Carolina Museum of Art

I spent a Saturday morning at the superb North Carolina Museum of Art. I hope to return several times, and to keep adding to a set that will show the range of the collections, the beautifully designed new building, and the outdoor sculpture park and greenway that connect it to North Carolina’s capitol city.

"Askew is part of a series of works described by Roxy Paine as “dendroids,” treelike forms with elaborate branching structures. The monumental sculpture has been installed in the Museum’s south garden, adjacent to the main entrance of the new building and visible from numerous vantage points both inside and outside the Museum. As Paine has stated, “I’ve processed the idea of a tree and created a system for its form. I take this organic, majestic being and break it down into components and rules. The branches are translated into pipe and rod.”

Paine visited the Museum in April of 2007 to get a feel for the environment and prepare for his site-specific work. He brought his ideas back to his rural studio in Treadwell, New York, where he built the sculpture in sections, over the course of a year.

VISIONS: Seeing the Aurora in a New Light

On the night of Feb. 6, 2013, a green aurora appeared in the Alaskan night sky. Conditions were finally right to launch VISIONS.

VISIONS: Seeing the Aurora in a New Light

A team of NASA scientists arrived in Poker Flats, Alaska at the end of January, 2013. The team is patiently waiting for the exotic red and green glow of an aurora to illuminate the sky. Instead of simply admiring the view, this group from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center of Greenbelt, Md., and The Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo, Calif. will launch a sounding rocket up through the Northern Lights. The rocket could launch as early as the night of Feb. 2, 2013, but the team has a two-week window in order to find the perfect launch conditions.

Armed with a series of instruments developed specifically for this mission, the VISIONS (VISualizing Ion Outflow via Neutral atom imaging during a Substorm) rocket will soar high through the arctic sky to study the auroral wind, which is a strong but intermittent stream of oxygen atoms from Earth’s atmosphere into outer space. The rocket will survive only fifteen minutes before splashing down in the Arctic Ocean, but the information it obtains will provide answers to some long-standing questions.

VISIONS is studying how oxygen atoms leave Earth’s atmosphere under the influence of the aurora. Most of the atmosphere is bound by Earth’s gravity, but a small portion of it gets heated enough by the aurora that it can break free, flowing outwards until it reaches near-Earth space. The atoms that form this wind initially travel at about 300 miles per hour — only one percent of the speed needed to overcome gravity and leave Earth’s atmosphere.

The principal investigator for VISIONS, Goddard’s Doug Rowland is providing images while the team prepares for launch.

VISIONS is a partnership between NASA Goddard and the Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo, Calif. The sounding rocket motors and payload support systems are provided by NASA Wallops Flight Facility, including NSROC, the NASA Sounding Rocket Operations Contract. The Poker Flat Research Range is operated by the University of Alaska under contract to NASA.

DAB digital radios offer a number of advantages over traditional AM and FM radios – they supply a far greater choice in radio stations, the capacity to pause and rewind live radio, and they remove the typically frustrating hissing and popping that comes with other radios.

Pure Digital are a main manufacturer of DAB radios and are widely regarded as the leading business in this region. They’ve developed some extremely innovative and creative designs for DAB radios that have become increasingly common in recent years.

This article provides an overview of four of the most well-known digital Pure radios currently offered to acquire.

Pure VL-60907UK Siesta

The Pure Siesta is substantially cheaper than many of the other radios on the market and is perfect for those who want a quality radio with out having to invest a modest fortune. It’s especially suited to the bedroom as it is tiny and takes up minimal space on your bedside table.

Despite its small size, however, it still provides wonderful sound high quality as well as the volume can easily fill a huge room.

A nice feature is the big LCD display where the brightness automatically adjusts itself according to the quantity of light within the room – this ensures that the radio’s display isn’t too bright when you are trying to sleep at night.

You can also set the volume of your alarm which is helpful as it ensures that it wont be too quiet to wake you, or too loud to make you jump out of your skin!

Pure Evoke 1S

The Pure Evoke 1S is really a quite popular DAB radio – the sound top quality is great and it has a quite cool retro look to it.

It’s a extremely well designed device and its appearance is in fact of similar top quality to radios that are far a lot more costly than this 1.

The menu system is well thought out and quite simple to get the hang of – you’ll most likely be able to begin utilizing it straightaway, as opposed to spending ages working by means of the manual.

This radio genuinely is worth the investment and is some thing that you can proudly show off to your pals!

Pure Digital Oasis

The Pure Digital Oasis is really a personal favourite – it’s created to withstand outdoor conditions and consequently has a bulky and strong design.

The sound top quality is excellent and it is possible to pick up a wide range of diverse stations from the antenna. This radio is also waterproof which means that it can potentially be employed within other rooms in the house such as the bathroom.

It really is a really versatile radio and provides excellent value for dollars – well worth a look.

Pure Move

The Pure Move is a lot more portable than the other radios and is ideal should you need to listen to DAB radio whilst out and about. The audio high quality is very high as well as the battery life is first-class – even after regular use you will almost certainly only have to charge it once a week.

The menu system is easy to navigate and the controls are intuitive to use.

This truly is a very cool radio and is perfect for those who want to take their radios out with them. In summary then, these are just four of the very best radios currently around at the moment – there are several others and new ones are continuously being released.

When you want to change something in your life it is a very common experience to say that you couldn’t do what you want to do because you would up set someone or that person might be offended or another might think badly of you. The result of all this thinking on your part is that you don’t ever get around to doing the thing you really would like to be doing.

But sometimes we all forget that another person may see the world in a different way to us. The expression about getting into someone else’s shoes is not necessarily to be taken literally although there was a well known actress who found that in order to get into character she had to first get the shoes of the character onto her feet.

However, what the phrase usually means is that you must imagine seeing the world through that other person’s eyes and with their experience of life. You can get a sense of this by standing in a different place and saying to yourself ‘I’m seeing the world through so and so’s eyes now.’ Counsellors use this technique by getting their client to sit in a chair which represents a person and see the world through the eyes of him or her. It’s useful to do this when you have a disagreement with someone and don’t understand why that person won’t understand your point of view.

You may find by stepping into their shoes you can understand their objections. When you understand this you can proceed to reach an agreement with them because when you demonstrate to them that you really understand where they are coming from then they will be more open to understanding your point of view too.

In the end you must consider whether the most important thing in your life is pleasing other people or doing whatever it is that you really want to do. When you get to the end of your life will you say to yourself that at least you tried not to upset anyone. Or will you be able to say that maybe you upset a person or two along the way but at least you did all those things you really wanted to do! It’s your choice whether you live for yourself or entirely for other people. Of course ideally it is great if you can find the balance between fulfilling your won needs and not upsetting too many along the way either.
