Hourglass Syndrome There is a new medical condition now known as Hourglass Syndrome. What is this? It is a syndrome that you receive waiting on your computer to do whatever tasks you has told it to do. Yes waiting for a computer to load your documents or web sites can get a little frustrating, but do we really need to create a name for it? Even worse, do we need to label it a syndrome? According to Intel, we wait approximately 13 minutes per day using our computer. This relates to 3 days per year totally waiting. How relevant in our lives is this? Do we wait longer than that in the line of Wal-Mart buying groceries? Should we then have a label of line syndrome. There are so many labels out there all ready, should we create another. If so we could have hold music syndrome, and phone automation syndrome, and the press 1 for English syndrome. Labels do not do Americans any good. Most Americans seem to equate the word syndrome with a reason to act out. Television most recently expresses this with a commercial by GameFly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
