Happy May Day to all! I hope you are making good use of your day to relax and spend some quality with your loved ones.
Let’s just spare a minute to think not only about how far we have come to fight for workers rights, but also how much still remains to be down to ensure safe working conditions and good wages for te employed as well as job creation for the unemployed. There is a huge amount of work still to be done!
On a lighter note: twenty years ago today was one of the best days in mankind’s history – the first day that the internet went live! Love it or hate it, you have to agree it has forever changed our lives.
Imagine searching for a mother’s day gift, planning that far away holiday, finding that perfect job, anything for that matter, without the internet it would just not be the same. I love the fact that even though our family members are miles apart, we can still know and see exactly what they are keeping themselves busy with. Equally important for me is the vast amount of information and audience we have at our fingertips. I honestly don’t know how Dickens or Shakespeare did it!
Thank you to Cern (European Organization for Nuclear Research) for first bringing it to us.
