The 2018 elections have proved that no matter how sophisticated we are in our everyday life with electronic devices, we still do not have a voting machine that is standardized across the nation and works without fear of information hacking or breakdown. According to a study by Cornell University there are approximately 174,000 precincts and 113,000 polling places around the United States.
We recently commemorated the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, also known as Veterans Day, which ended World War I in 1918. Veteran’s Day is different than Memorial Day. Memorial Day is for remembering and honoring military personnel who dies in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of a wound sustained in battle. Veterans Day is intended to thank all those who honorably served in the military – in war time or peace time.
Technology continues its expansion into more and more facets of our life. Even churches are increasingly beginning to turn towards electronic communications for help in spreading their message. Emails and social media, for instance, help keep the flock up to date about the church community. But the latest trend is using large television screens that replace traditional bulletin boards. This allows more information to be conveyed using colorful displays and PowerPoint presentations to members.
Show us a friend or family member who genuinely does not want to get a new Smartphone or tablet this holiday season, and we’ll show you someone who probably isn’t being honest about their holiday wish list. Or any device that has a digital display screen. Because not only do these devices provide endless hours of fun and distraction—they’ve also become practically indispensable for everyday living.
