Technology Has Shifted The World, And Here's How

In today's modern society, technology is an essential part of life for many people. Technology has caused many evolutionary events to happen and made a permanent footprint in the world. Technology has made many things possible such as making online schooling possible and allowing contact between people through multiple platforms.

Throughout the years, education has shifted in many ways, including the usage of online schooling platforms and electronic resources. Some students might not have the support to attend on-campus schooling and might need to take advantage of online education and resources. Many schools are offering online classes to students that attend on campus to provide a variety of learning. Online platforms that allow students to access resources in the classrooms give extra help to their success as well. For example, Banweb is an online support that is given to students to manage their information involving their student information( financial aid, class registration, etc.). Without technology, many things that students need or may need will be challenging to access. Technology has paved a way of making contact between people smoother through various platforms. For example, facetime makes it easier to contact people and see them face to face. Distance has become more trouble free for people to overcome with the introduction to many social media platforms and long distance services offered by phone companies. People that may be dealing with long distance relationships can be less worried about things due to introduction to new technology. Parents can keep in contact with their children as well through technology, mainly due to many companies specializing in electronics specialized for children and parents.

These days various events are happening throughout the world that people find essential to their life. World news can be watched or listened to through technology; without news reports, many things would be unknown to society unless the communication between one another. Voting has even become electronic throughout countries which makes elections for candidates run more smoother.

Technology has also allowed people to work from the comfort of their home, such as blogging, online tutoring, virtual recruiting, etc. Employees can easily earn their money rarely or never leaving their home. Many online job findings come from just an inquiry and a click of a search button.

Without the technological advances that have taken place and innovators throughout the years, many things that play a significant part in peoples lives will become very strenuous tasks to complete or obtain. If technology all of a sudden comes to a halt how do you think the world would function.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
