Trump pushes to expand high-speed

Ah, the Internet!

expand

 

It’s huge!

The Internet is easy to use, it is regularly updated, and there’s a ton of information on it on just about everything (though some pages are, let’s say, more helpful than others). If you’re doing research, it makes good sense to use the Internet as a resource and to cite web pages in your work. But how do you do that?

Let’s talk about both of those things.

First, using the Internet as a reference tool.

Life without internet is impossible these days. It has become an essential commodity of life in many ways.

We can Google and find out stuff easily. We can look up meanings of words and phrases conveniently. We can browse, email and build our own websites. It is a chain of stuff we feel we have to do and sometimes they are mandatory to boost our work and business.

But what happens when you know we cannot depart from it? We are always in front of monitor screens at work and on our cell phones on our commute back home. We hardly pay attention to our significant other or our enthusiastic children who are ready to greet us after a long while.

We can hardly get internet out of our head and after every meal, we will find ourselves on the internet either on phone, laptop, tab, or PC. Instead of making long distance calls, we will chat on Skype or Viber via internet because they are free to use. As more digital tools get invented, we can hardly correct our addiction.

Is it something to worry about? Yes, certainly our family, friends, relatives and colleagues’ relationships get at stake. We no longer want to communicate with them or talk to them because the internet is giving us so much fun and entertainment.

nature of the information available online are collectively invaluable, there are also some downsides to using the web for research. The biggest thing to be careful about is low quality, unsubstantiated material that hasn’t been reviewed for accuracy. Since anyone can post on the Internet, it’s up to you to make sure the resources you’re using are reliable.

How do you deal with that problem? You need to use good, reliable search tools; use good searching techniques (see a recently published article on Boolean Phrase Searching right here on EzineArticles for more on that); and take responsibility for thoroughly vetting any material you use. It can be tempting to trust resources that support your hypotheses, but they need to be checked just as thoroughly as anything else you hope to cite, or more

U.S. President Donald Trump was expected on Monday to sign an executive order to make it easier for the private sector to locate broadband infrastructure on federal land and buildings, part of a push to expand high-speed internet in rural America.

Faster internet speeds in rural areas have long been seen as key to addressing the economic divide between rural and urban America, but the costs have so far been prohibitive.

About 39 percent of rural Americans lack access to high- speed internet service, the Federal Communications Commission said in a 2016 report.

“We need to get rural America more connected. We need it for our tractors, we need it for our schools, we need it for our home-based businesses,” a White House official told reporters ahead of Trump’s speech at the annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation.

“We’re not moving mountains but we’re certainly getting started,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to preview Trump’s actions.

The White House described the moves as an incremental step to help spur private development while the administration figures out what it can do to help with funding, something that could become part of Trump’s plan to invest in infrastructure.

“We know that funding is really the key thing to actually changing rural broadband,” a second White House official said. (Reporting by Jeff Mason in Nashville and Roberta Rampton in Washington; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)

We all know we get addicted to alcohol and beverages. We also get addicted to working and cannot help leaving it. Have you ever thought we could be getting addicted to the internet? Is it a growing problem?

Life without internet is impossible these days.

Is it something to worry about? Yes, certainly our family, friends, relatives and colleagues’ relationships get at stake. We no longer want to communicate with them or talk to them because the internet is giving us so much fun and entertainment. As a result, when we need them in our dark hours or illness, we won’t find them available. We will, in fact, be the loneliest creatures on this earth. Will internet help us then? Circumstances can only tell.

Therefore, it is wise to be in control and disciplined. Too much of anything is not good and we shouldn’t cross our boundaries.

We shall stay on the internet for some of the time and also laugh and play with our children and family. We should also hang out with friends for real and have loads of fun. We should strike interesting conversations with our colleagues at work. Now that is called life. Life relying on the only internet is no life at all. When we realize this, perhaps like alcoholics and workaholics, we can correct ourselves and find back the real mojo of life that we once had.
