The internet as a tool:
For many of us internet is one of the most indispensable tools of the twenty first century. It is unimaginable as to how we would cope with ourselves if the internet was to vanish into thin air one fine day. We would probably become paralyzed because information in today’s age definitely signifies power and anyone who has information today is the undisputable leader.
Take my instance:
From finding location to updating my network, everything is dependent on my smart devices. One day I remember forgetting to pick up my smart phone for work and the entire day I had this unsettling feeling that maybe just maybe I was losing out on something very crucial which my colleagues may know and take leverage of to get ahead of me. I was frustrated and panicked till the time I reached home.
The website is more like a guide and a review site put together. Most of my basics I have had the good fortune to learn here. It presented a wholesome experience in a bite size module and that made is extremely easy to understand. If I want to credit anything for my successful stint at trading then it will have to be this particular website!
Wildcat, an improved version of Super Lynx, is an advanced multi-role, maritime and utility helicopter. It is designed to be housed in a frigate, offshore patrol vessel or corvette.
Its intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities are significantly upgraded.
