Harmony, History, Shopping & Digital Privacy
HARMONY, HISTORY, SHOPPING
Growing numbers of people are turning to online access for a number of rather ordinary activities. And increasingly they are learning that in doing so they are becoming involved in a world of business and to some extent deception that is at best built on a rather fragile foundation of trust and market forces. We have known for some time that as users of the virtual universe of opportunities, we are sharing with others information about us and what we want. But the extent to which this information is otherwise being used has been left in the hands of a relatively unguarded concept of openness and honesty. We seem to like the idea of putting ourselves out in the world to see what happens of its own accord, no matter whether we are looking for love, our family's past or good shopping deals. Only now are we beginning to see that this sense of trust and openness may not be as solid as we've thought. In fact, it may well be the case that what we have thought of until now as privacy may well be giving way to a greater consideration of what it means to participate...
We found that the majority of the sites we examined did not take even basic security precautions, leaving users vulnerable to having their personal information exposed or their entire account taken over when using shared networks & #8230;. (Hoffmann, 2012).
The Electronic Frontier Foundation posted the above comment, drawing attention to what millions of people are effectively doing to themselves when they sign up on romance pairing sites: they are voluntarily sharing private information because they think it will give them a leg up in their search for an emotional match. We tell these systems very significant and personal levels of information about our likes and dislikes and how we might want them made available to others. And why do we do this? Because we seem to think that no one cares about that information except perhaps for that perfect Mr. Or Ms. Right (McRae and McKnight, n.d). But that hardly seems to be the case at all.
Similarly, we are beginning to discover that this sense of trust in the system falls far short of its promises (Nehf, 2005) elsewhere too. Questions are being raised about what it even means to go online to discover our own past heritages. Even searching for seemingly innocent past connections can lead us to uncover the truths about others that may be public but that they have no idea even exists. Ancestory.com and other heritage sites, for example, are places where people go to find out about their connection to others in their family or in their family's past (Ancestry.com, 2012). But what does it really mean when that search results in a discovery of very intimate details about the lives of others whose lives just happen to be entwined with our relatives, many of whom we don't know and whose own privacy is of no concern to us (Vanderpool Gromley, 1999)?
What each of these activities mean is that whether we are looking for love or looking for our past or shopping online, we are…
This is not to say that the melody or harmonic lines bear any relation to modern Western pop music, or to say that the form is not without its quirks, but the relationship that the form of the song establishes with the listener is easily accessible and comforting where Stravinsky's, in contrast, is alien and dissociative. The song starts right away with a melodic/harmonic line of drums and a
History In the Making: Fight for Rights There are numerous definition of history that are adapted by different groups. Of interest though is the fact that they share a period that is in the past. Among the many definitions fronted by Word Net (2011) is "the continuum of events occurring in succession leading from the past to the present and even into the future." This definition arouses interest in our case
It was an important event in the nation's history because it was the first time that America was dominated by internal conflicts that challenged its democracy (Fortuna, n.d.). However, once the fighting came to an end, its significance became clear because of its effects on the American society. Despite of taking more than 60,000 lives, the American Civil War contributed to the establishment of the Democratic South and Republican North.

Shopping Behavior The shopping experience for the typical American has changed dramatically over the last few years. Due to economic circumstances plaguing both the global and domestic economy, shoppers are now more apprehensive about their purchasing behavior. Likewise, other economic circumstances such as the decreasing trend of the average Americans income are also contributing to the extreme bout of pessimism the nation is currently experiencing. It is no secret that the
