Netflix Still Top Streaming Service
Netflix, Inc. has been around for about 22 years now, and although Hulu and the Amazon Fire Stick (including the jail broken version of it) are providing us streaming services of their own, Netflix continues to be the most trendy according to Google Trends search data.
Amazon is every college students’ convenient best friend with their free 1 day delivery, book rental services, and so on. Recently their fire stick has become popular too amongst other items and there are plenty YouTube tutorials on even jail breaking it to get around paying for media streaming services.
Hulu is another streaming service subscription available, unlike Netflix but similar to the fire stick, Hulu uploads new episodes as soon as they are out. It is exciting to be able to have new episodes available for viewing when there isn’t a cable subscription to depend on at home.
Netflix has raised their monthly subscription fee in the past years but it remains popular around America including other countries. It streams some newly released movies often times and keeps seasons of popular shows on, unfortunately there is rumor that Friends will be going bye-bye, once again. It continues to be many students’ daily routine to pull out all the homework due the next day and turning on Netflix just to binge-watch our favorite episodes all night with zero progress to report.
Greta Thunberg Activist Raising Global Warming Awareness
At just 16 years of age, Greta Thunberg– a young environmental activist, has brought so much awareness to this climate change around the globe. Young Thunberg has called for stronger climate action and asking politicians to be held accountable for the crisis. This past Friday, September 20, many students took their protest to the streets during school hours to bring awareness to the climate change all around the world.
Thunberg has already been called the ‘Next Generation Leader’ and has been more of trend search than the actual topic themselves recently. Global Warming has been a trendy search as well but Thunberg has shot up right past it in the past few days, with the Paris Climate Agreement being the least popular search. Thunberg has been featured on magazines and interviewed over her well written speech and about her thoughts on our climate change crisis.
She wants the next generations to actually have a future, in order to have a future, the planet should be taken care of today. Simple things to ‘Go Green’ would be less gas emissions, for example, walking rather than driving non eco-friendly cars. Thunberg herself has given up meat because livestock is responsible for about 14% of those manmade gas emissions.
This young leader today might just be able to bring a lot of awareness to this climate change through her perseverance and commitment to our future of tomorrow.
