Communication Opportunities Created by the Internet

The Internet has become embedded in every aspect of our day-to-day lives, changing the way we interact with others. This insight struck me when I started out in the world of social media. I created my first social network in 2005, when I was finishing college in the United States—it had a political theme. I could already see that social media were on the verge of changing our way of communicating, helping us to share information by opening up a new channel that cuts across conventional ones.

That first attempt did not work out, but I learned from the experience.I get the feeling that in many countries failure is punished too harshly—but the fact is, the only surefire way of avoiding failure is to do nothing at all. I firmly believe that mistakes help you improve; getting it wrong teaches you how to get it right. Creativity, hard work, and a positive attitude will let you achieve any goal.

In 2006, after I moved to Spain, I created Tuenti. Tuenti (which, contrary to widespread belief, has nothing to do with the number 20; it is short for “tu entidad,” the Spanish for “your entity”) is a social communication platform for genuine friends. From the outset, the idea was to keep it simple, relevant, and private. That’s the key to its success.

I think the real value of social media is that you can stay in touch from moment to moment with the people who really matter to you. Social media let you share experiences and information; they get people and ideas in touch instantly, without frontiers. Camaraderie, friendship, and solidarity—social phenomena that have been around for as long as humanity itself—have been freed from the conventional restrictions of space and time and can now thrive in a rich variety of ways.

Out of all the plethora of communication opportunities that the Internet has opened up, I would highlight the emergence of social media and the way they have intricately melded into our daily lives. Social media have changed our personal space, altering the way we interact with our loved ones, our friends, and our sexual partners; they have forced us to rethink even basic daily processes like studying and shopping; they have affected the economy by nurturing the business startup culture and electronic commerce; they have even given us new ways to form broad-based political movements.

The Internet and Education

The Internet and Education

The Internet has clearly impacted all levels of education by providing unbounded possibilities for learning. I believe the future of education is a networked future. People can use the Internet to create and share knowledge and develop new ways of teaching and learning that captivate and stimulate students’ imagination at any time, anywhere, using any device. By connecting and empowering students and educators, we can speed up economic growth and enhance the well-being of society throughout the world. We should work together, over a network, to build the global learning society.

The network of networks is an inexhaustible source of information. What’s more, the Internet has enabled users to move away from their former passive role as mere recipients of messages conveyed by conventional media to an active role, choosing what information to receive, how, and when. The information recipient even decides whether or not they want to stay informed.

We have moved on from scattergun mass communication to a pattern where the user proactively selects the information they need.

Students can work interactively with one another, unrestricted by physical or time constraints. Today, you can use the Internet to access libraries, encyclopedias, art galleries, news archives, and other information sources from anywhere in the world: I believe this is a key advantage in the education field. The web is a formidable resource for enhancing the process of building knowledge.

I also believe the Internet is a wonderful tool for learning and practicing other languages—this continues to be a critical issue in many countries, including Spain, and, in a globalized world, calls for special efforts to improve.

The Internet, in addition to its communicative purposes, has become a vital tool for exchanging knowledge and education; it is not just an information source, or a locus where results can be published, it is also a channel for cooperating with other people and groups who are working on related research topics.

CREATIVITY

CREATIVITY

Written by MALINI N

Most of us have heard the story of an intelligent crow that put pebbles into a jar of water, till it could reach water to quench its thirst. The normal thing the crow could have done was to fly all over, till it got water. Instead when its beak could not reach water, it found a way for the water to reach its beak. This is a beautiful example of creativity.

Creativity is all about finding unconventional solutions. Such solutions require imagination and out of box thinking. It involves seeing connections between apparently unconnected things, seeing hidden patterns and evolving solutions. Creativity doesn’t end with imagination. It involves actions. Therefore it is creative people who can think differently and produce new ideas or products.

The best examples for the most creative designs in nature range from a human body to a bird’s nest to a crawling worm. Also nature’s designs are the most efficient designs. Thus, instead of simply looking at some solution for the things around us, it is good to think of creative solutions. Every child is born creative. It is only because of environmental factors that few children evolve more creative than others.
As students, you are in the intense learning phase of your life. It is for this reason that you should acquire a high degree of
creativity. Few steps to nurture your creativity are as follows.

Break away from routine – Think and act differently, question the rules with “why this way and why not the other way”. This leads to inventions.
Add value to existing things – Candles were used as light sources. Thomas Alva Edison discovered light bulb which was far
superior to candles in many ways. He failed 1000 times, but did not give up. Creative people should accept failures as a part of learning.

Chase your curiosity – If you have found something interesting, that excites you but not pursued, start working on it immediately.
Set small creative tasks each day and complete it. This will energise you to take up bigger creative tasks.
Spend time with nature – Get away from the monotony and get into a state of peace. Your imagination works better as nature brings calmness in you.
Acquire good reading habit – This gives you new ideas along with your own. It helps in creating new solutions.
If we do not function creatively, we may loose a lot of opportunities in life.
One of the take-aways is to start asking questions like “Why this way and why not the other way?”. List few more take aways for yourself.

A Daylight Robbery

A Daylight Robbery

Written by  Dr Vinaya T

The recent outbreak on PSU banks writing off Rs. 2.41 Trillion or Rs. 241,911 crore loans from April 2014 to September 2017 is an eye-opener and an extremely sad case for the Indian banking industry. We know that the Indian banking sector with its robust policies was able to overcome and sustain the effects of 2008 recession which rocked the global economy, but ten years down the line in 2018 we have witnessed some of the miserable cases of daylight robbery by the billionaire jewellery designer Nirav Modi defrauded PNB to the tune of Rs. 11,300 crore and the infamous absconding business tycoon Vijay Mallya who defaulted multiple banks to the tune of a whopping Rs. 9,000 crore poses serious questions to the much celebrated banking system in the country.
The other worrying aspect of this write off which is touted as a routine exercise undermines the corporate political nexus considering the period in which these loans were written off and the high handedness of the elected government in disclosing the borrower wise credit information citing RBI Act hides the major mishandling and inefficiencies in curbing the corrupt practices existing within the banking industry, corporate entities (with easy entry and exit) and the politicians. To conclude the paradox continues to be that the innocent voter receives multiple reminders from the banker to even pay an amount even as little as Rs. 1,000: whereas the influential borrower could flee the country through diplomatic channel by making himself unreachable or by overseas citizenship.

Internet Has Changed Everyday Life

This article is about the impacts of the Internet on people. Despite this is a large and complex topic, I will research and explain it from different perspectives which are more close to the human life.

At present, there are very few people who have not even seen a computer and now Internet is an essential part of our life. Today we face a new era in which we feel Google is God. It is not a one day event or one night myth. Millions of people are doing efforts behind of these technologies. And many of us doing computer courses to learn.
Every day we are engaged in making ourselves better. We want something new every day for happiness and peace. Whether it could be anything. And for this reason half of world is living because of the internet. We are habitual to see notifications, emails etc. Internet is Great! It is not only helpful in getting the job but it is also able to develop your life.

The Internet has turned our existence upside down. It has revolutionized communications, to the extent that it is now our preferred medium of everyday communication. In almost everything we do, we use the Internet. Ordering a pizza, buying a television, sharing a moment with a friend, sending a picture over instant messaging. Before the Internet, if you wanted to keep up with the news, you had to walk down to the newsstand when it opened in the morning and buy a local edition reporting what had happened the previous day. But today a click or two is enough to read your local paper and any news source from anywhere in the world, updated up to the minute.
