Education on the Internet
In today's society, the internet has become a very important learning tool. It is used for day to day activities, such as a place to look up research, a method of getting in touch with friends and family, and somewhere to go to find information about almost anything imaginable. The most popular uses of the internet include entertainment and education. Many people argue that the internet should be used for educational purposes only.
The Internet as a Business
The internet is a very valuable resource when it comes to education, but I do not think it should just be limited to that idea. There are many other important qualities the internet possesses. The internet is now used to run businesses, and keep personal business files online. People can go to the business's home page to learn more about the product. One of the most useful and popular businesses online is Amazon. By going to http://www.amazon.com, a person can shop without ever leaving their computer. By using a Visa Card, an individual can purchase books, music, clothes, toys, games, electronics, and much more.
The Internet as Entertainment
One of the most popular traits of the internet is entertainment. This can take the form of many different aspects of the net. Many people, especially teenagers, enjoy visiting chat rooms. These are web sites designed for people who like to talk to others. Many times, a person can find someone with similar interests in chat rooms and they become online friends. Not necessarily someone they would ever meet, but someone to talk to and share things with. Other types of online entertainment include games a person can play with other others online, and surfing the web to find web pages that strike their interest.
The Internet as Education
The internet is very useful when it comes to research. There are many search engines that can help a person find a related topic. There are online catalogs, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and thesauruses to help enhance a person's learning capabilities. Other ways the internet is useful is that is can be used now as a classroom. Technology has made it possible for a person to download a visual image of a teacher teaching a class online. Many programs now have courses that can be studied over the world wide web. These courses are very helpful to students who learn easily from outside of the regular classroom atmosphere. It is also possible to go online with other people and actually be able to see them. This can be useful for faculty meetings or other conferences that would benefit the public.

The New World OrderThe New World Order The idea of a New World Order has been around for a long time. This ideal centers around the concept of a one world government led by the United Nations. Many have praised the idea of a New World Order, including some of our very own Presidents of the United States, while other stand against the idea all together. In theory the idea of a one world government would be nice, uniting the world as one, however the shortcomings, in my opinion, out weigh the positive factors. In 19

QUESTION 1QUESTION 1 Explain what is meant by globalization. Is it really a myth? Globalization is the free movement of capital, goods, services and labour around the world, by big commercial companies, which have massive control of the world\'s economy, transcending the boundaries of state and country. This transcendence across countries results in the shrinking of the economy and results on it depending on larger companies with a controlling interest in most of the capital within it. This global control

American values are a tricky thing. It seems thatAmerican values are a tricky thing. It seems that the value set changes with each individual. American pragmatism is actually rooted in deeply held anti-authoritarian, individualistic, egalitarian, activist ideals, which privilege personal choice, flexibility, and technical efficiency with the pursuit of success, however success is defined. (Hall, Lindholm, pg. 91) Basically, an individual\'s values are what that individual decides they are. The key to understanding this is realizing that above

While both offer more affordable platforms for Web service than in the past, Linux and NT are polar opposites on almost every other level. They look different, run differently, support different software, and cost money in different places. So far though, most press coverage of the Linux-NT debate has focused on the competing business models
