Enviroment Topics

By Glenda Uma単a

Environment Topics Are








environmentally friendly? If your answer is yes, you should read this document because its purpose is to educate people. It also aims to help humanity work for the environment and to think about our carbon footprint with aspects such as recycling, planting trees and using water responsibly. These are the most relevant topics when taking care of the environment, although humanity does not practice them. Another important aspect is to know the benefits of adopting these practices. Our lifestyle needs to make significant changes in the way we treat our environment. Recycling is a very important activity because it helps us to take

care of our planet. There are many materials that can be recycled, for example, paper is one of the most common recyclable materials. Also, people can recycle carton, plastic, glass, technological items and so on. In

Costa Rica, there is a recycling company that is named “Ambientados�; they are responsible of collecting different products, like carton, plastic and paper. Moreover, their job is very important because they are giving a hand to the environment.

Humans should plant trees because they are a synonym of live.

Unfortunately, people do not work on this. The trees ' job consists of capturing the carbon dioxide and turning it into oxygen. Oxygen is necessary for us because we cannot live without it. Another important

aspect of trees is that they participate in the filtration of fresh water, the protection of soil, and drought; for this reason it is important to stop the

deforestation. One benefit of planting trees is to reduce flood, because roots can capture rain excess. Moreover, is very important to educate people to plant trees and make them think about the necessity of planting trees instead of cutting them. Water is important for people’s lives. Though in this moment we have a lot of water, people need to think about this resource adequately because someday it can disappear. Consequently is very important to take care of

fresh water and to use it properly. Some common mistakes are for example, to brush teeth not closing the tube and to take a shower for a

long time. Furthermore, in many houses, hotel, factories, etc they don’t have a dirt water treatment plant. Another thing is that in rivers there

exists more water contamination, because people throw garbage into them. As a conclusion, there is a terrible problem in the environment, besides the bad attitude of humans to increase this situation. In addition, we do not work for caring about the environment which contributes to the increase of the global warming and causes a global catastrophe. People should have a positive attitude and work for protecting the environment. Everyone needs to practice recycling in their houses and protect the fresh water. Furthermore, it is important to plant trees in order to help the environment.

The Deep Web Concept Visible Web

Deep Web

Deep Web Concept Nobody will be responsible for the use of this information.

By entering this kind of website, it is directly defined that you are older

than 18 years. Google, Facebook and other popular websites are a unified series of webs that just want to be famous among a lot of people, but they are not the entire Internet. The Deep web is a dangerous place that you can visit just with an especial browser called Tor, you cannot see this

place with Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and others; it is composed by weird places that are located much deeper and more hidden than others. Surfing in the Deep web is like a jump to the past because it is

very different and also it is hard to find what you are looking for. In general everybody should have a medium level of computer knowledge to navigate in the levels that we are going to see below.

Deep Web Concept These levels could contain completely illegal information. Besides,

the Deep web is divided into five danger levels. The first one is called “Surface level” and it has information about vampire freaks, hidden databases and foreign social networks. The second level contains hidden

Google results, FTP servers, pornography and more. In the third level you need a lot of security if you want to be there. Also you are going to find navigating real hacker groups, celebrity scandals, virus information, suicides, computer security, gore, child porn, cosmologists, dark magic,

data analysis and many but different and dangerous topics. The fourth level is called “Charter web”; at this point you just will find abnormal

information like questionable visual materials, personal records, human trafficking, most of the black Marquet, hard drugs trade, bounty hunters,

head hunters, banned material, rare animal trade, corporate exchange, assassination networks, secret bases like Area 51, super-secret documents and more topics that actually are not recommended for anyone.

We cannot forget the fifth level that it is called “Marianas Web”; it is

controlled by the government and people do not know anything about this place because it is very deep and dangerous. Actually it is the part of the Deep Web where anyone wants to get in. If you are wondering how

those people can make purchases in this place, the answer is BitCoin. Bitcoins behaves just like any other kind of coin; the most impressive part is that the Bitcoins might be changed in Dollars or Euros. With this coin in

the Internet now these people can acquire all they want. That is why we should know the reality of this place. Everything could be dangerous if you decide to navigate in the Deep Web and even also in the surface web.

Since people know that the Internet is more that they know, they

start to feel curiosity by entering the site. Like I have mentioned before, we need a special navigator called Tor.) This browser provides us anonymity,

privacy and security at the time to enter in this new world. Once you are inside, you must implement all the security that (the browser) provides us to protect you from any threat, which is one of the most important parts;

you should not forget that. The entrance to the Deep Web is done through what is called Onionland; these are associated sites with domains that normally are like and is important to know that provides one

new extension such as .onion which has the property to not reveal the

content when you access the web page, for example: ks48fd.onion, which is why no other browser can index these pages. In addition to the danger,

there is also very interesting, useful and hidden information that

motivates a person to enter, but it is not recommended to download compressed files or play audio and video files. You must accept the

consequences of what you do if you decide to break the rules without security.

To conclude, I need to mention that the Deep Web is still an ambiguous side of the Internet in spite of the useful or dangerous information that anyone can find. Most people have not heard about this topic and they believe that what they see in the common web sites is all

that the Internet has to offer. I would advise that if someone wants to investigate this source of information, he should accept the possible consequences. My intent is not to promote these practices or other illegal

actions; I just want to instill a bit of my knowledge in the people with the

purpose of making this topic known. Now it is time to choose between the path of ignorance and the risk of knowing a little more; it depends just on you.
