America is changing. From major society developments to the small instant messages we send online, all contribute to how we change this country within a 25-35 year time span. The best way to explain how this country has evolved is by comparing articles from both time periods. Suzan Jacoby published this quote in her article “Unfair Game” written in 1978, “I have asserted my right to sit at a table in a public place without being drawn into a sexual flirtation…that two attractive women prefer each other’s company to his.” Many changes have been done in the society since it was published. First change is that a simple greeting on the internet consists of three or four letter acronyms such as “a/s/l?” which stands for age, sex, and location rather than “Hi, may I have a drink with you?” Secondly, the ways of which we have relationships have changed since the late 70’s. An internet relationship can carry on for weeks without meeting physically. I’ve seen couples who no longer are interested in each other once they meet in person. Relationships may also start without a single word, as with my essay on “The Best (or Worst) Day of my Life”. By simply being in the spotlight using music technology to control the crowd, words are not needed to attract the opposite sex. Lastly, defensive mechanisms for women seemed to have upgraded. Effective pepper sprays and cell phones can easily scare off a predator.

    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.
