DIG DEEPER INTO THE INTERNET

The thing that interests me nowadays is the internet. I was still amaze on how the technology affects us today. I am somehow happy that I get to experience it just like my grandmother was happy to have experienced using a cellphone. At least I get to be a part of an era or age. But as much as I am in awe with this cool technology I have this urge to get into deep about it. I am not trying to be an expert; I just want to fully understand about it. It’s mechanics, the advantages and disadvantages, basically the different effects of it on human.

There are some courses about this today I believe. I am not sure which university offers this course but I will look it up because I am interested on enrolling. This has become now one of my goals. Be educated about this whole internet thing and be an ambassador of some sort. I intend to also educate the others about this and maybe together we could make this digital age a better age that we live in.

One of the things that I want to go dig deep into is the porn industry on the cyberspace. I stumble upon this site http://twitter.com/porn which is obviously a PornTwitter and I am curious how this thing benefits each and every one who subscribe to this. Aside from the fact that sex sells I wanted to know how this affect the lives of people behind this and what makes the end user or the subscriber of this really feels about this.

Hopefully I get to pursue this goal that is slowly turning into dream. I don’t want to obsess about it because I will get impatient and rush these things. I don’t know if this is a noble thing but if not I know that I could be helping the others who, like me, has this hunger of understanding the cyberspace.

Top Headache Trigger

Results from the 2012 United States Cluster Headache Survey revealed that alcohol remains the main trigger for cluster headaches. More than half of all survey participants stated that alcohol was their main headache trigger. In some European countries the rates of alcohol induced headache are much greater (Sweden 79%, UK 63%) or approximately the same (Germany 54%).

The main source of alcohol for US respondents was beer (57%) followed by red wine and hard liquor (about 50%). Most survey respondents reported that they stopped drinking at the onset of a cluster headache. Interestingly, the data also supported a well-known fact that beer is the number one consumed alcoholic beverage in the United States. Hence, the question is still out as to whether these numbers would look different in other countries - where other alcoholic beverages reign...
