Internet

Guess what you can find on the internet? The internet is a great resource because you can find medical information, school help and other information like news, sports, and weather updates.

On the internet, you can find medical information that hospitals won't provide without financial aid or social security. If a person is seriously sick and unsure about their symptoms, they can look on the internet, type in the symptoms, and find a cure or a medicine. If they went to the hospital it would take too long, and the person may die. They could also find hospitals that accept walk-ins, or find over-the-counter drugs that may help with their symptoms.

The internet can also help with school papers or homework topics. You can use sites like: www.drmath.com to help with math, askjeeves.com to find a certain topic, or escapefromkmab.com to help with real-world situations. There are also on-line calculators and teachers that can help you virtually.

The internet can also have other information in general like news, weather, and sports updates. You can also find on-line car dealers and furniture stores, so you don't have to leave your home. You can find various weather sites or if you have AOL, there are daily weather forecasts. You can find books on-line at www.amazon.com and www.bn.com.

The internet can also provide entertainment like music and games. You can find music at www.launch.com, netradio.com, and you can find music lyrics at: www.hitlist.com, lyricsearch.com, and lyricsearch.net. Sites like www.shockwave.com provide games and music. You can get on-line greeting cards and use mixmakers to make your own music.

The internet is a great resource, but it can be misused. It can be used to hack into governmental information and used to create viruses. But the internet doesn't have to always be serious. You can find music and games, but these can also be misused. The internet is great, but dangers still lurk on the World Wide Web.
