Do You Think We Are Slaves to Technology?

Do You Think We Are Slaves to Technology

TTechnology in our world today is a blessing and a curse it seems. There are positive advantages to technology, like being able to look up important information about your flight out of LAX. Unfortunately, there are a few drawbacks as well. Generations like the “millennials” are labeled as disconnected because of their preference to using dating apps versus meeting someone in person. Face-to-face conversations seem to be in jeopardy, as people would rather send a five secon picture through Snapchat instead of talking to the person in front of them.

Technology captures our attention for hours on end. If you were to ask a group of people how much time they spend on their phones/technology you’d probably get a bunch of vague answers...

The Disappointing Reality of Shootings

The Disappointing Reality of Shootings

There are several universal laws that everyone should know, and typically follow. The problem with universal codes is that we assume everyone will follow those codes as well. Unfortunately, bad people do bad things. People break universal laws all the time, which is why we have services to help prevent this. If a law is broken there are consequences for the person who broke it. This leaves the rest of us shocked, confused, saddened, and sometimes mad.

With advances in technology we hear and find out about these shootings faster. This is good, but also bad. With the ability to find out more information instantly, we also tend to get told the wrong information. Facts get twisted and false information quickly gets shared across the country.

It is terrifying that you have to be prepared f...

You Can’t Trust Everything Online, Even Reviews

You Can’t Trust Everything Online, Even Reviews

Anyone who has spent a lot of time on the internet knows that they can’t believe everything they read. While the internet is a great way to find information, not everything online is true or even remotely accurate. This is especially true for anything that is written by everyday people, and not professionals in their respective fields.

Unfortunately, this does include online reviews. As helpful as they can be, online reviews are only as helpful as talking to people themselves. Many adults are aware of the fact that everyone has different views and knowledge of life. This means that there are certain people you go to for advice on movies, and certain people who you go to for advice on home repair...

Do You Believe in a Flu Season?

Do You Believe in a Flu Season

There are all kinds of people out there in the world, and all of them have their own believes and views. Some of them make sense, and others are just plain bizarre. Every once in a while, you hear of a belief that just seems too crazy to be true. For instance, some people think that there is no such thing as a flu season.

For those unaware, a flu season is classified as an annually recurring period of the year where there are consistently large sized outbreaks of the flu. These seasons typically coincide with the cold seasons, which vary from the Northern to Southern Hemispheres. The flu season lasts for roughly 6 weeks in each hemisphere. This is a trend that had been tracked and monitored for years now.

Recently, a televangelist told her followers that there was nothing to worry about...

Tax Season Is Here

Tax Season Is Here

The new year is already a month old now that January has come and gone. This means we are truly entering into tax season. Businesses are handing out tax forms to their employees, and people are gathering all of the paperwork that they are going to need. It’s time for everyone to sit down and fill out some paperwork for the government. How exciting!

Most people aren’t very excited about this time of the year. It means extra work filling out dull paperwork, or paying someone to fill it out for you. Sometimes, you can get some money back from the government, other times you end up owing them money. All the while, you are hoping you filled everything out properly so you do not get audited.

This year, taxes are due to be completed by Tuesday April 17th...

California Considering Plastic Straw Ban

California Considering Plastic Straw Ban

Just over a year ago, the state of California banned grocery stores from giving away single use plastic bags. The goal was to reduce the amount of plastic that made it out into the environment. Now, California lawmakers are considering making it a crime for dine-in restaurant waiters to give out plastic straws.

This new law was proposed by Assemblyman Ian Calderon this January, and since then it has received a lot of criticism. The many reason for this, is the fact that the bill calls on any waiter caught giving plastic straws to customers who didn’t ask for them to be fined $1,000 and face up to 6 months in jail. This would be a misdemeanor offense, and it is a pretty hefty penalty for handing out straws.

Of course, the goal of the law is a good one...

Mudslide Preparation

Mudslide Preparation

Most Californian’s know to be prepared for earthquakes and fires, but often overlook another common natural disaster within the state. We received a lot of rain in the early parts of 2017 in California. Then things dried up and we experienced plenty of fires as a result. Since we’ve had several large fires and winter storms are now here, we need to be prepared for mudslides.

Mudslides happen when the ground soaks up high amounts of water and then breaks away. With plenty of vegetation burned away from the fires, most of our hill sides don’t have enough vegetation to hold themselves together. All it takes is one good downpour and the hillsides could breakaway.

Ready.gov is an excellent place to gather information of how to prepare for natural disasters like mudslides...
