One day after the San Diego Wildfire (Poway)

ON the day after the fires in San Diego, I find some interesting sets of people. I found out today that my home was spared. Unfortunately we have several friends who lost their homes in the wildfire. This morning I returned to my home to find out that it was saved. The inside of the home smelled like smoke. I decided to try to find an air purifier. I went to a Costco nearby. It was smoky and almost empty. I applaud the employees that showed up for they were really helping those in need. Most of the people were buying water, food and other basic necessities. Then I was surprised by this one couple. They were browsing and shopping as if nothing happened. They were looking at the special order items for a great deal. At first I was angered by their disregard for the suffering that was occurring within feet of them. Then my wife reminded me that people deal with stress in different ways. I guess she was right.

  1. Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

    As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
