QUE REPRESENTE L'INTERNET POUR MOI

RL’internet était un réseau de liaison représenté pour moi un intérêt plus large et efficace des multiples secteurs de la vie entre autre :
- D’une façon scientifique ,elle m’aide à faire des rechercher à un sujet donné il me fait des autres d’un sujet de recherche et y publie mes thèmes .
- D’ une manière commerciale, à travers l’internet, je peut passer des commandes d’articles de très loin où je ne saurai pas arriver et mes rejoindre ici où je suis ,je peux y faire le marketing et la publicité de mes biens.
- Quant à la culture, par les réseaux internet, je m’informe de cultures d’autres communautés, d’autres peuples, leur monde de vie, leurs coutumes et habitudes.
- Pour la santé ,je suis bien situé à savoir une épidémie qui apparait dans une communauté ,sur incidence, sur prévalence ,les décès issus de cette épidémie par l’internet je peut savoir la démographie inventif d’un pays et la répartition par âge et sexe, l’histoire des malades, les fréquence,leur recrudescence,la répartition de ces maladies dans la population ,les moyens et méthodes curatifs ainsi que prophylatiques (préventifs) de ces épidémies.
-Je connais les abus portes à l’atteinte physique ,morale intellectuelle et économique des peuples d’ailleurs ,je sais le bien être des autres communautés ,leur Vincent et nouvelles technologies, etc, pour ne pas vagabonder dans les idées ,je dis que l’accès à l’internet mes donne une connaissance,les idée d’ensemble sur la situation le monde.

What the Internet Means to Me

The internet was a liaison network, and for me represented a large and efficient interest, relating to many aspects of life, among them:

-In a scientific manner, it helps me research a specific subject, it makes me a subject of research for others and it lets me publish my topics.
-In a commercial aspect, using the internet, I can place orders for goods from very far away, that I wouldn't know how to reach otherwise, and they reach me. On the internet, I can market and advertise my goods.
-In terms of culture, through the networks available on the internet, I can learn about cultures in other communities, other populations, their lifestyles, their customs and their traditions.
-As for health, I can easily learn if an epidemic appears in a community, its repercussions, its prevalence, and the deaths resulting from it. With the internet, I can learn about a country’s demographics, its distribution by age and sex, the patients’ histories, the frequency and recrudescence of diseases, the distribution of these diseases within the population, and the treatment methods as well as prophylactics (preventative treatments) for these epidemics.
-I can learn of the physical, moral, intellectual and economic abuse that people elsewhere are suffering. I can learn of the well being of other communities [...] and new technologies, etc.

For fear of rambling, let me just say that access to the internet gives me knowledge and ideas of the current situation around the world.

Chère Hugette, Merci pour

Chère Hugette,
Merci pour partager votre opinion à propos l’Internet. C’est très rafraîchissant de lire comment il représente pour vous une ressource polyvalente. Des fois, dans mon pays et dans d’autres pays du tiers-monde, les personnes considèrent comme acquis cette technologie merveilleuse, et souvent on oublie que l’internet n’est pas seulement un loisir, mais qu’il peut nous aider à réaliser des changements fondamentaux dans le monde.

Merci encore!
Pilar
