Heroes

Heroes..Have you seen it? Are you a fan? Just imagine, what if you have the power of regeneration? Or what if you can teleport or freeze time? believe me, I have done it, but only in my dreams. And I enjoyed it and can't imagine the possibilities that I can do as a normal person who sometimes do the right thing but sometimes the bad. Just like these characters in the T.V. series Heroes. They have powers, but they don't always act like heroes like Superman or Batman. I was impressed with the story and the different twists in the series. Before I start, for those who haven't seen it, here's a short summary for you. It's a T.V. series about ordinary people who discovered they have special abilities. But it doesn't mean that if you have these abilities, you are a hero. Definitely not in their cases. They just show you how ordinary and human they are. They use their powers in good but sometimes in evil depending on what they need. Some went to go on the right path right away, but some chooses their own way, the human way.

Here's a list of the main characters and their abilities

Claire Bennet - regenerative ability
Hiro Nakamura - manipulate the space-time continuum
Peter Petrelli - absorbs the powers of the others
Nathan Petrelli - ability to fly
Takezo Kensei - regenerative ability
Matt Parkman - hear other's thoughts
Niki Sanders - superhuman strength and multiple personalities
Sylar - multiple acquired abilities




These are just some of the few main characters of the series. It's just too bad that season two ended so fast. They only aired 11 episodes out of 24 of season two due to the 100 day strike by the Writers Guild of America. It is said that the remaining episodes will be shown on Season 3. Hopefully it will come out soon. But for now, we all know there are heroes in movies and t.v. We can also be one even without powers, even for one day.

The Right to Choose

What if you were only given a choice to choose between having a cable tv or an internet and you can't have both. Hmmmm.. It's like choosing between food and water. Of course we both need water and food for survival. But do we need cable and internet to survive? Let's analyze. Technologies today are growing fast and becoming better and better everyday. So for that question, some might say yes we both need cable and internet.

Let's look at the strengths of cable tv. You'll have access with lots of channels around the world. You can watch your favorite shows, movies, sports, and even music videos 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Watch what you have been missing the past years. How about an internet? You can access almost everything on the net from news, pictures, music to videos. Communication is another strong point that an internet connection have. For those who have love ones from another country. You don't have to pay to be able to talk to them. You just need an internet to be able to talk and see them. No contest.

From the points I've been making, it's obvious that internet has more advantage than cable tv. Just like food and water. The food gives us strength. But still we need water to live. Comparing it with the internet and cable, internet gives us more power over what we want to do. But still, we want cable tv. But do we really need it as much as food and water? Let's all remember, we don't need too much power to survive in this world. We don't need to choose the cable nor the internet. We only need to choose the right path, the right decision and the right way of living.
