Did you know 2017 video 0 116-332 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u06BXgWbGvA

OK The Information age is upon us. We are overloaded with Information yet what we are looking for seems to be buried like a needle in a haystack.

The old way was look it up in books at the library.

Now we have the power of a mainframe computer to help us search thru billions of documents in seconds.

Well but it is not always that easy.

Cortina What is the meaning of Life?
