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
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 www.talktalk.co.uk/business/product/fibre 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
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
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
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
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!

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
