Embrace the technological advances

The use and constant creation of new technology is helping us and improving our way of life as humans. The evidence is all around you, even in your pocket right now.

Thanks to technology, we have risen to unimaginable heights in the past decade.

Technological advances have allowed us to create a world with hundreds of codes and encryptions that zoom from one place to another.

The world has gotten much smaller due to technology and everyone is connected in some shape or form.

It is possible to view a loved one thousands of miles away in the palm of your hand.

People around the world can now carry a little bit of home with them every time they step outside with their mobile, wifi-entwined, devices.

The anthropoids that came before us went from bare hands, to rocks, to spears and arrows and later went on to invent the wheel that, to this day, we still use and redesign every time we develop new technology.

Without technology, entire countries and ways of life will vanish into thin air.

Those that say how technology hurts us, rant and rage from a blog on an electronic computer themselves, then drive off in a machine created by technological ingenuity and preach how technology is decimating human ways.

In a modern world where stock markets are displayed on LED teleprompters, it is vital to be tech savvy.

From the multi-billion dollar companies down to the college students registering for classes to ensure themselves a future, technology is the norm.

We hang out in the same room as our friends, but post funny moments to and dramatize our timelines on Facebook and Twitter.

The modern-day teenager can’t go one second without ‘LOL’-ing their friend in the other class. College papers are submited through emails and educational databases.

There is no stopping the technological revolution, even if we as humans begin to stray from basic biological actions.

Whoever is not on the same page as the modern world might as well just log off Facebook and resort to smoke signals.

About the Contributor
Sebastian Echeverry, Editor in Chief
Hello all, my name is Sebastian Echeverry and I am the Editor-in-Chief for the fall 2015 semester. I have been working for the newspaper for four semesters now and slowly climbed the ranks from staff writer, to assistant sports editor, to sports editor, news/managing editor and finally the big cheese. My interest in journalism began when the twin towers fell on September 11 and the U.S. invaded Iraq. Global news coverage of airstrikes in Baghdad plagued the media and my father who served in the Colombian military would sit with me and explain what was going on to me. I was only eight years old at the time, so putting politics aside, I was only interested in how reporters on the front lines were seeing history unfold in front of them. Since then, I enjoyed reading and writing especially about global news. My first taste of research was for a high school paper about the militias still active in the U.S. I remember sipping some brew outside on the Coffee Bean's patio and being swallowed up by data, and liking it. I Currently have a part time job at Calvin Klein, my favorite sport is soccer and I love, Barcelona, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. I also enjoy watching hockey and my favorite team there is the Detroit Red Wings, yeah weird I know. I'm an easy person to approach and talk to and if you have story ideas let's get cracking on them! my email is: [email protected] My Twitter is: C_bass581141 My Instagram is: onlyc_bass5 and for giggles my snapchat is: onlyc_bass5
