New Struggles Involving Data Storage

Data is everywhere. From the files stored in your smartphones to the ones found in your computer to the millions to trillions of byte scattered all over the World Wide Web, data virtually makes the world go round. For an ordinary person alone, we already have problems how to manage our data storage especially with the popularity of social media. From photos alone, we accumulate them fast what more if we love taking and saving videos. We find ourselves worrying about devices going low on storage space. Most common storage devices used aside from the ones already found on your device are USB sticks, external hard drives, memory cards, etc.

The cloud also became a favorite storage solution for many especially that there are sites offering free or cheap storage. You don’t need to purchase a physical gadget where you can store your files for safekeeping that are often …

Korean Skincare: Is It The Fountain Of Youth?

Is the air or water different in this part of the globe that is why people of all ages seem not to age at all or are South Koreans just blessed with really good genes? Well, it’s not like they do not age at all but there is one thing that helps them maintain their youthful appearance aside from having naturally white and glowing skin, South Koreans understand and value the importance of skincare. They invest in an intensive skin regimen that mostly uses natural and organic ingredients that will leave you with fresh and supple porcelain skin and delay the onset of aging several years back. As the Hallyu wave continues to spread worldwide and we get to know popular Korean stars, the first thing we notice is how great their skin is and how young they look for their age.

Now, for all you people who want to …

Computers Have Gotten Even Smarter

By now, all of us already know that computers rule the world. Wherever you look and everywhere you go, there are all sorts of electrical gadgets that supposedly make our lives better and easier. Computers are at the core of modern life and we have reached the point where even the tiniest of these gadgets can really do big things and we won’t be surprised anymore. The rapid rise of the Internet of Things has further propelled smart technology’s popularity among the public. We use computers in almost everything we do and it only makes perfect sense to develop the technology even further and hopefully make robots with human-like intelligence that are capable of doing a lot of things.

While many of the things we have now have somehow reached that point with computer assistants such as Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa, we are still far from achieving the fullest …

Why Male Authors Use Generic Nom De Plumes

Books are something else, right? They give us a glimpse of various stories and situations that make our imagination run wild. Authors also have their mark and we can easily tell what the novel will be like by simply knowing who the author is. And just like any celebrity, there are certain authors that we follow and idolize and collect all his/her books. Most of the time we don’t really care that much as to the author’s gender because it is the book’s contents we are really interested in.

Today, there is news making its round on the web about male authors using gender-neutral names to hide their gender from their readers. But just what is all the fuss? And why are these male authors even doing this? What triggered them to hide their gender from the public? Is it really necessary in order for them to sell books? This …

Ignoring Children’s Mental Health

Parents are often fussy about their child especially new parents. They often take their kids to the doctor when they have the fever or the flu but rarely do they wonder about their children’s state of mental health. The term mental health in itself is a vague one and most parents and carers have no idea what it encompasses and what the dangers are. Children’s mental health actually includes emotional and developmental milestones and developing positive social skills that children will need as they grow old and are crucial in solving the many problems life throws at them.

In order to become a normal, healthy, and sociable adult, parents should not ignore their child’s social health to help them develop to their full potential. Unfortunately, there are various factors that can affect a child mental state and not all the time they will be showered with love and affection and …

Nanobots For Your Health

The world is changing. Everywhere around us looks different than it used to and many changes still take place with each passing day. If there is one thing that is constant, though, it is us humans. Our presence in the world is one of the constant things here aside from death and taxes. Yet even us are evolving. We became more complacent and tech-dependent. We rarely move around because we can’t think of anything better to do than to tinker with our smartphones in the comfort of our couch or bed. It’s the new vice most people have and it truly is addicting.

No wonder human health is deteriorating. More and more people get diagnosed with chronic and debilitating conditions. Even cancer is widespread already. Blame it on our unhealthy lifestyle or perhaps poor choices in just about everything. While technology has proved to be disastrous for us in …

Does It Help To Still Be Charitable In Trump’s America?

Not everyone is naturally charitable especially when times are tough and others can barely afford to live decently. Doing random acts of kindness helps perpetuate charity even in our own little ways. You don’t always have to give a lot. Even the simple things matter to people who barely have anything to eat. In a nation like America, citizens are encouraged to be charitable. There are tax breaks they can take advantage of by sharing more of what they have to the less fortunate.

The truth is that most philanthropists and donors are rich businessmen and corporations. They not only help certain causes and uplift the lives of others who are desperate for help but they also help themselves by reducing their tax dues to the state. The bigger the tax break is, the more inclined people are to give and donate. And that is a big question now …

Cassini Spacecraft: Lost In Space

Space exploration has always fascinated many. Maybe because of the many mysteries it holds and the impossibility for the average Joe to go out there and unravel these mysteries themselves, we can’t seem to get over our awe and wonder to any news pertaining to the deep realms of space. Well, there had been many voyages in the past and we have seen a glimpse of what’s beyond the Earth’s atmosphere but it has not fully satiated our hunger for more information simply because we know there is so much more left undiscovered. If planet Earth is the only habitable planet in the entire galaxy, it is such a waste of space after all and we can’t just shake it off our minds.

Before we can explore other galaxies, we can’t let the opportunity to pass and discover more about our neighboring planets. And among these planets are Saturn, the …

Healthspan Reduced Because Of Sleep Apnea

The human health has been observed to be deteriorating as technology keeps on progressing. Not only do we face more complex and drug-resistant strains of diseases these days but our modern lifestyle makes it even doubly hard for us to stay healthy and fit. As a result, it significantly affects the quality of our lives and how long we eventually live later in life. Think of the food you eat. How do you think it impacts your health? Then, there is another major aspect of our life that we compromise – our sleep. We lose more sleep now as tech distractions are everywhere and we can barely sleep a wink each night with our various tech and social media preoccupations.

There are likewise medical issues that affect sleep that we have little control over. For example, sleep apnea is a common yet often ignored health condition that affects millions of …

New Homes For Older Animals In Shelters

Like humans, animals also have basic needs that need to be met for a long and quality life. Unfortunately, not all of them can find responsible and compassionate owners who will go the extra mile for their comfort and safety. It is not uncommon to see animals in shelters until they die. It is more challenging to look for new owners for older animals because most pet owners prefer to adopt younger animals to be their new pets. It is the reason why many older animals stay in the shelter far longer and may not even be lucky enough to find a new owner in their (short) lifetime.

Since only a handful considers adopting these orphaned older animals, some groups are advocating for them to get adopted and have these local animal shelters cleared of these poor, unfortunate animals. And there is an urgent need for these things to be …
