Do you remember your first encounter with a large, heavy computer set? As devices became smaller, their processing and computing capacity increased dramatically over time. The emphasis has quickly shifted to cloud computing or "offsite storage," whereas data warehouses and server farms were once thought to be the best option for processing performance. Cloud computing has even inspired entire business models for SaaS companies such as Netflix, Spotify, and others. However, there are several drawbacks to cloud computing. The main issue with cloud computing is latency, which is caused by the distance between consumers and the data centers that host cloud services. As a result, edge computing, a new technology that brings computers closer to their users, was developed.

The pace of price rises for products and services is known as inflation. And, subsequently, purchasing power falls. The impact of inflation on the world can be both positive and negative.
Positive Impact:
• Inflation can stimulate economic growth by encouraging investment and consumption. When prices rise, consumers and businesses are more likely to spend money before it loses value. This increased spending can lead to more job creation and economic growth.
• Inflation can also help reduce the burden of debt. When prices rise, the real value of debt decreases, making it easier for borrowers to pay off their loans.
Negative Impact:
• Consumers' purchasing power might be reduced by inflation, making it harder for them to afford certain items. The goods and services they need. This can particularly hurt low-income individuals and families who may have a more challenging time dealing with rising prices.
• Additionally, inflation can result in economic unpredictability and instability, as businesses and consumers may have a more challenging time planning for the future when prices constantly change.
• High inflation can also lead to higher interest rates, making it more difficult for businesses and individuals to borrow money. This can slow economic growth and make it more difficult for people to afford big-ticket items like homes and cars.
Overall, inflation can positively and negatively affect the world economy. Such as, the US Federal Reserve and central banks try to maintain a moderate level of inflation to balance economic growth and stability.

The one thing nobody mentions when talking about starting a corporate journey is the need to be constantly “on”. While this may be a dream come true for all the workaholics determined to make their mark as soon as they step their foot in the door, for a happy-go-lucky person (like yours truly), this approach is far from a perfect day. In April 2021, when I joined my first firm, I quickly realized that being the junior-most employee in the team meant I had to forfeit my right to free time. Often, I was the first to log in and the last to log out. Even though our office boasted of every luxury known to mankind – from a gaming room to a fully functional kitchen, one could find anything and everything, except an off switch,

We are always so caught up in our own lives that we never realize that we are surrounded by a world so beautiful and magical. A world full of wonder and delight. However, we have tainted that world with our selfish deeds. We as humans were born in a world where our primary objective was the protection of nature, however, we have grown to become people who don't even realize its true meaning anymore which is a sad product of evolution.
