The debate on whether modern technology has so far been beneficial, or disadvantageous, probably has no end. Many of us, who have grown accustomed to having all these marvels of technology around, have found ways and means by which we can use them to our best advantage, and not necessarily fall prey to abuse or overuse, or lack of critical thinking whenever we make use of every single gadget, software, hardware or whatever technological stuff we get our hands on.We probably do not notice it, or for some of us, actually try our best to deny it, but our young population is truly one sector that is so much affected by this modernization. The older population, probably those in the 60-plus age bracket, may already resist altogether the quite complex learning that goes with today’s technology and simply depends upon the younger generation to help them. The middle-aged group is still relatively receptive on these changes, but probably without much passion and merely on a per-need basis. But, and this cannot be denied as you look around, our younger generation and more so kids of school age, embrace the new lifestyle and technological advancement with much passion and enthusiasm.Google+
“Even if you were to study your own life in detail and relive each moment that you suffered, sweated and smiled beneath the sun, you would still never know exactly when you had been useful to someone else.”
His words struck me.
His simple words filled with so much depth and meaning struck me. Perhaps it was the heavy truth in his lines, or the fact that I can relate to it… Or maybe both. Continue readingGoogle+
I’m an Angeleno at heart. Though originally, I’m a Brooklyn girl, Los Angeles has never felt like a second home to me.
Before moving in L.A., I have been active in freelance writing. Back in my college days, I would win in essay writing contests, and even in rhetoric recitals. I believe that at that moment, I was drawn to do something I never thought I will end up doing – writing. I have published materials in magazines, while some, ranged from everyday photos. Bowling and musicals are the theme of my photography, which is why I pretty much stayed in bowling alleys and theater houses back then, taking random pictures of people or anything that catches my attention. Mostly, my photos are in black and white and embraced gestures of people. Below are some samples.Google+
I am you; you are me. You are the waves; I am the ocean. Know this and
be free, be divine.
Hello everyone! I am Emily Harper, the founder of Security Ocean.
My mission is to provide an essential, go-to site for households who want to ensure safety and security in their homes. Also, to bring moms together, and promote the online mom community.
Security Ocean chronicles my life as an active member of the neighborhood watch, while being a full- time mom to 2 sons. Because of the opportunities I gained in making the locality safer, I became passionate in reaching out to, and enlightening people about preventing crimes, and employing strategies while raising social interaction.
I worked in marketing before, until my husband went into military. His absence in the family circle made me vigilant, and more protective. This is one of the reasons why I joined the crime prevention program.
My sons, named Charlie, 12 and Scott, 10 are the love of my life. Between picking up toys and shuttling my sons to school and after school activities, you can find me typing away at my laptop on the kitchen counter.
Aside from text- heavy updates on security, precautions, or anything in between, I also want to be able to make a difference for the many moms in cities and towns, and burbs nationwide by providing them information with value, sharing them how I balance work, my interests, and motherhood in this crazy digital world, and perhaps more than anything, the camaraderie that helps get you through the long day.
