Traveling at the speed of light (on the internet)

The appearance of the internet has produced great changes in our lives. With its help, we manage to communicate with people who are thousands of kilometers away from us. Besides the internet, there is also a webcam, or other devices and programs, that help us to communicate, to see or even hear the voice of those who are far from us in the world. With the help of these programs, we feel closer to our loved ones who are abroad. We can talk to them anytime or see them as if they were near us.   
The apparition of the PC in the '70s and of the the World Wide Web in the '90s have launched our society into the information age. Today, directly or indirectly, everybody assumes, when they wake up in the morning, if they have a question, it will get answered. Because they have the internet.
No matter what the question is, someone probably already attempted to answer their question or will do so in the near future. If you take the time to stop and think, it is really incredible to be able to learn together in an engaging environment where none of us really know each other. The fact that you can learn anything just as easily if living on the other side of the world is a good reminder of the age we live in.
Although information still has to be filtered and the good sources need to be found, the main thing to keep in mind is the fact that opportunities for growing and learning good things are all around us. We are so accustomed to modern technological conveniences, that often it's easy to take for granted the times we live in. Studying the history of the internet is an amazing thing.
On top of that, I think that something practical today would be to keep in mind of the best ways we can use this tool to our advantage. Depending on where you live, if you travel or what type of job you have, there are different ways to connect to the web, and that can make an important difference. Some of the best current ways to connect to the internet depending on your lifestyle are:
Fiber today is the fastest way to access the Internet. Fiber converts electrical signals to light which travels through tiny glass filaments. Speeds vary depending on several factors, but experts say that most modern fiber connections transmit at speeds of tens to hundreds of Mbps faster than other broadband options.
Solutions such as Superpowered Fibre Broadband offer some of the fastest broadband speeds available. Unlike copper cables used for standard ADSL broadband, fiber optic cables use thin strands of glass to transmit information at the speed of light. You will have a faster and more reliable connection that will allow you to achieve download speeds of up to 76Mbps.
Cable Internet connections use coaxial lines connected to the back of a modem, and an Ethernet cable line runs from the modem to a computer or a router if it is a shared connection. You can generally expect speeds between 512Kbps to 20Mbps.
Satellite internet access is usually recommended for more isolated areas. A satellite dish is installed at the receiving location and Internet signals are sent and received by satellites. Connection speeds vary but are close to that of cable and DSL.
DSL (Digital subscriber line) is a family of technologies that are used to transmit digital data over telephone lines. The term DSL is widely understood to mean asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL), the most commonly installed DSL technology, for Internet access. Speeds are generally the same as cable Internet and satellite connections. The availability of DSL is highly dependent on your distance from the telephone company's facility and phone line conditions. (Noisy phone lines are very disruptive to DSL signals.)

Wireless broadband can come in the form of data connections through the cellular network, or through Wi-Fi routers that allow several users to share a single Internet connection. Speeds can be comparable to slower cable and DSL connections but can be far slower depending on the number of customers sharing the connection, the technology used for transmitting, and distance from the transmitter.
How do you connect to the internet at home, at work or at traveling and what role does the internet play in your life? Follow #BroadbandAndMe on social media for more posts!

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

    Image by Oliver King via Pexels  CBD oil has gained enormous popularity in the recent past for its incredible health benefits. Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future. Here is all you need to know about CBD oil and the potential benefits you could reap by  using it.  What is CBD Oil?  CBD, which stands for cannabinoids, is a compound found in Cannabis. Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Atmosfera cozy de toamna la tine acasa cu aromaterapie

 Hello girls, Acum ca vara a trecut si toamna si-a facut simtita prezenta, imi petrec majoritatea timpului in casa, in living, unde mi-am pus si biroul. Petrecand atat de mult timp acasa de un an, este foarte important pentru mine ca sa am mereu casa ordonata, aranjata, primitoare unde sa ma pot simti relaxata. Toamna te ademeneste sa bei o cana buna de ceai, sa iei un pulover gros si confortabil, sa te simti cozy intr-o atmosfera placuta si imbietoare de toamna. Daca ai la cuptor si o prajitura cu mere si scortisoara, tabloul perfect de toamna este acasa. Seara imi place sa aprind lumanari parfumate , sa stau pe canapea cu cana de ceai si sa ma uit la un serial. Mirosul imbietor al lumanarilor Yankee candle ma face sa fiu relaxata, intr-un mediu linistitor cu un parfum imbietor.
