The World Wide Web, more commonly referred to as the Internet, has all but taken over the lives of so many people. Available on the Internet is every imaginable resource, piece of information, and way of communicating with almost anyone in the world, and it can all be found in one place, which can be reached by the comfort of oneâ€™s own home. Because of the instant availability of everything found on the Internet, it becomes hard, for many, to separate the difference between what people experience and learn online, versus what they may come into contact with or who they might meet face-to-face in the world around them. Though there are many negatives that are often associated with the

Problems Facing The World Wide Web
While flipping through the old pages of a book on Speech and Communication, my eyes caught
the following lines of Marshall McLuhan: “Someday the whole world would be a global village.” He
was simply referring to the idealized concept of a diverse community where people of different races

that his words will one day become literal.
That day is today! After the short “dial-up rattle”of my ISP, I loaded Netscape Navigator into

Then in 1974, Vint Cerf (known to some as the "father of the Internet"), along with Bob Kahn, wrote a new protocol, TCP (Transmission Control Protocol, that would become the accepted standard. The implementation of TCP allowed the various networks to connect into a true "internet."

allows people with access to these networks to share information and knowledge.
Resources available on the Internet are chat groups, e-mail, newsgroups, file

it is uncensored. The Internet belongs to everyone and to no one.
The Internet is structured in a hierarchy. At the top, each country has at

Who would have thought that the origins of this grand retailer, was the hoop skirt? The history of Bloomingdales dates back to hoop skirt being the first item that was carried by Joseph and Lyman Bloomingdale in their Ladies Notions Shop in New York City. Why the hoop skirt? At the time, in the late 1800’s many retailers focused on just one garment, this was their specialization, however the Bloomingdale brothers where different, they would eventually open an East Side Bazaar, and begin to sell a wide variety of European Fashions. This eventually would be the beginning of that what we know as Bloomingdales today
