Back Up Your Computer Now More Than Ever

Back Up Your Computer Now More Than Ever

Computers are costly investments and they do a lot of things for us. From working on important files or paperwork for work or school to pursuing personal interests especially with the advent of the Internet and social media, most homes have a computer or two for us to be able to do all these things. And as more modern the world becomes, more aspects of our lives become digital. We have all sorts of tech files, from documents, photos, music, videos, etc. We definitely have embraced technology with both arms wide open.

By now, we probably aren’t clueless as well of the environmental issues we are facing because of global warming and climate change aside from the physical threats from cyber hackers that always threatens the security of our data on the web. So, backing up your computer is the most sensible thing to do in order to save yourself from all the hassles caused by lost or stolen files especially with the increasing ransomware attacks and natural calamities here …

Technology Saves The Day: Special Needs No More

Technology Saves The Day: Special Needs No More

We may have a love-hate relationship with technology at times. We love how it made our lives convenient and colorful and virtually erased the word boredom in our dictionary. You’ll never run out of things to do with a smartphone in hand. You don’t even have to go anywhere outside of your room but still stay up-to-day on all the latest happenings and even be able to communicate to family and friends who are thousands of miles away from us. Yet, that is indeed the power of technological innovations. It is simply mind-boggling. Yet no matter how awesome it is, it has its drawbacks and probably just as many as its niceties. First of all, they cost money – a whole lot of it. They are high-maintenance as well. Upkeep and repair costs can seriously endanger your wallet. Electricity consumption likewise rises not to mention all of the dangers it poses to the environment. People get lazier too. We, as a whole, tend to rely on these tech contrivances to …

Poverty Persists In These Modern Times

Poverty Persists In These Modern Times

Unequal wealth distribution had always been an issue in our lives. Since time immemorial, there had always been conflicts and misunderstanding because some people had more than they’ll ever need while many suffer from hunger and poverty. Don’t be misled to believe that those times are way behind us now. We may live in a world full of technological innovations and advancements but poverty still lingers all around you. Some can afford to buy all those lavish and sophisticated gadgets while one family spends the night in the cold and without food to qualm their hungry stomach. If one thing is true, it is that wealth inequality is more apparent now more than ever since you can easily tell from the material things a person possess how well or badly they are doing in life. It really feels like a smack in the face when you see privileged individuals waste money on nonsense things and luxurious whims and fancies when a big majority of the world’s population can’t even afford …

The Unexpected Benefits Of The Marijuana Legalization

The Unexpected Benefits Of The Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana had always been stigmatized for the longest time. Back in the days, people will frown out at you if they ever heard you were smoking weed because that’s what most Hippies do. We all know it as the plant that gives you an unnatural high and has been the subject of countless arguments in the past but recent studies of weed are showing us a different side of it. Of course, innovation played a big part as a different breed of the plant is not being cultivated for its medicinal properties and not just a pick-me-upper that it was of yesteryears. The growing popularity of cannabis in the medical circle definitely caught the attention of both those who are pro and con for the marijuana legalization. People claim it has helped them battle chronic illnesses the modern pharmacology and science weren’t able to alleviate and address.

Studies have also been popping here and there giving us factual information on the bright side of marijuana and why it deserves to …

Special Needs Met By UberASSIST

Special Needs Met By UberASSIST

Not all of us have the same needs. While there are general necessities we all require to live, some require even more than the average Joe. It is unfortunate that some people have to be born with a disability and cripple them for life but there are those who get injured and disabled in the course of their lifetime. Living life is a bit harder for them as they don’t have all the senses normal people have to help them get through life. They can somehow manage when they are at home but it is an entirely different story when they are out of the house.

The stigma associated with any disability aside from seeing the raised eyebrows of the people around them aren’t just the only hurdles these people face. Moving around is actually one of the biggest problems since many establishments do not yet have the facility to accommodate them. Fortunately, this issue is continuously being addressed over the years. Now, Uber is presenting those with handicaps a

Merry Christmas Or Happy Holidays???

Merry Christmas Or Happy Holidays???

The leaves are falling and the wind is colder, it only tells us one thing: Winter is fast approaching. If there is one more thing many of us look forward the most come winter season is not only the arrival of snow (which is usually nice a first until you have to get rid of them so you can get out of the house or experience getting stranded in a blizzard) but Christmastime. Unlike the general notion that Christmas is just for the kids, even adults actually look forward to the coming of Christmas. Gift-giving, making memories with the people you love over delicious home-cooked meals, and no work/school, what more can you ask for?

Yet people actually see this time of the year differently depending on your religious affiliations. And in a country like America that is a melting pot of all race and religions, many things are interpreted differently that can create issues when there shouldn’t have been in the first place when we should all be respecting

Food And Facebook Is Life

Food And Facebook Is Life

Who does not like food? Many of us only think about food on most days. It is a basic need and we don’t like starving ourselves, don’t we? Then, there is social media, the online craze that took over our lives for good. Can you still remember what life is like before Facebook came? For most young people, their memories are vague and they can’t really relate to life in the 80s, 90s and early 2000 when life was simpler and less complicated but may be considered a bit boring too by today’s standards. With the advent of the web came exciting and novel opportunities that we never thought possible.

Not only did the Internet and social media improved communication lines but it also created a buzz that continues to keep buzzing until now. The life that we used to know vanished and was replaced by something more dynamic and continually innovating. New trends come and go but some surprisingly stay for such a long time. We are constantly …

Disaster Strikes In The Most Unlikely Places

Disaster Strikes In The Most Unlikely Places

The world is our home but there are many things that happen in this planet that makes life doubly harder for all of us. At times, they are the works of nature but most of the time it is because of man itself. World peace seems like a distant memory right now as violence fills the daily news and many nations are still at war with each other. Is it really that difficult to put aside our personal opinions and look past our individual differences as we live our daily lives? Human casualties increase each year as incidents like suicide bombings, mass shootings, and other acts of terrorism attacks innocent civilians who are utterly clueless it is their last day on earth.

No amount of preparation can save you from such a tragedy. After all, you can never really tell when a psychopath decides to go on a killing spree out of nowhere and you happen to be at the wrong place and the wrong time that ultimately led to …

Is It Too Early For Christmas?

Is It Too Early For Christmas?

Is there really such a thing as an early Christmas? And if preparations have started way earlier, does it really matter? It is a question most people find themselves asking once the year’s end starts looming on the horizon. It is not that we dread it but more of wondering whether how soon should we be preparing for the most wonderful time of the year. We don’t want to stress ourselves when we are already running out of time to finish all the Christmas preparations and holiday shopping at cool stores and put it much later because by then we’d have to compete with more people on getting the best deals and the lines are visibly longer too. You might not be able to buy the perfect gift as well as you only have limited options left. Worst, most products are sold at regular prices but you have no choice but to just buy them rather than leave empty-handed.

So, do you start preparing for Christmas now that the wind …

Children Obsess Over Their Looks And It Is Not Good

Children Obsess Over Their Looks And It Is Not Good

Parents always tell their kids they are the most beautiful or most handsome child in their eyes. Well, it is true in a way because parents really see their children as precious gems that mean the world to them regardless of their imperfections. But we all know this is subjective and children will eventually have to confront the criticisms of others especially if they are not as special as they were led to believe growing up. Add to that the pressure and confusion of puberty as they discover more about their body and changes are taking place from head to toe that is worsened by their raging hormones.

Young kids actually do get depressed because of their looks. Adults may shrug it off and think of it as a passing phase but it is not always the case. Some kids subject themselves to self-harm or even commit suicide because they do not know how to cope with the issues they are facing in their young age that mostly stems from …
