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.

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.
