.... labor is what employers want! "There is clear evidence that the supply of workers in the [unskilled labor] categories already exceeds the demand for their services," says L. Mishel, Research Director of Welfare Reform Network. In view of these facts, I wonder if these trends are good or bad for society.

.... such as C, or C++, you would have to type in much more sophisticated lines of code that are much more confusing than the previous two.

.... programs, and as educational tools, and they are being developed to aid people who have lost the use of their limbs.

.... Internet, simply put, is a bunch of computers that can communicate with one another via telephone lines, optical fibers, radio and satellite links. If one computer goes down the others are linked together to bypass the defective/destroyed computer and get the information to its destination. It's much like a spider web. You can cut many of the strands and it still hold together. This is how the phrase "World Wide Web" came into existence. The Internet has grown and improved over the years; from a cold war project, to a medium for exchanging ideas and .....
