Engaging Children in the Sciences

Schooling has advanced dramatically since we were younger, access to technology has increased, and children are exposed to more than we ever were during our youth – but is that enough?

Why is the sky blue?
What causes volcanoes?
What causes earthquakes?

Invaluable Uses of Fast Ethernet

The following is an article that explores the potential (and frequently realised) uses of Fast Ethernet in both the personal sphere and that of business.
Strictly speaking Fast Ethernet is a term that is applied to Ethernet connections with a rate of 100Mb/s (i.e., 100 megabits, or 100,000,000 bits, per second). These Ethernet connections are termed as such because they are 10 times faster than the original Ethernet. In practice the term can also be applied to speeds which reach a thousand times faster than that.
Fast Ethernet allows the transfer of large amounts of data at a faster rate and it is this feature that has led to its various uses, as it improves the capabilities of existing technologies as well as unlocking opportunities previously prohibited by the limits of traditional Ethernet speeds.
Wide Area Networks
Fast Ethernet is essential for the capabilities of Wide Area Networks (WANs) which …
