We are living in an ever-changing world nowadays, with events happening everywhere. Many people are occupied with their own business and thereby choose to turn a deaf ear to the events which have, by their words, little influence on their daily lives. However, it doesn't seem sensible to ignore all these so-called irrelevant events. What we should value is actually the informative events and that's why we name our age as the Information Age.
No one can deny the fact that life is not only composed of daily routines, but leisure moments as well. Beside work, we also pursue for relaxations, yet we will have few choices if we solely focus on trifles around us. Taking sports for example, most people have their favorite sports team. When it comes to the latest game of the team, we will anxiously wait in front of the television, watching their performance with excitement, cheering or crying over the final result, and heatedly discussing about the game afterwards. Likewise, many other events such as political affairs or entertaining news involved with famous stars may also arouse people's interest. We find pleasure in these events though they have little to do with our own daily lives. Undoubtedly, knowing about current events can make us updated as well as engage us in conversations with other people.
Not only do global events trigger animated discussions, the knowledge can also lead us to better decisions if we can grasp the information behind them. In other words, many events don't seem to be influential on our daily life at first sight, which is true to some extent, but in the long run, quite a few will play an important role. World events like the political situations in Middle East usually don’t concern many people. However, political unrest and the most recent social movements there may indirectly affect oil prices. The global market largely depends on oil from the Middle East. If oil companies or even other business concerned with oil make predictions and decisions reasonably, they could make a fortune from these events.
Admittedly, it is not advisable to be mindful of everything that is happening in the world because we do not have so much energy and time. However, the importance of information can never be overestimated. We need to adopt time fragments to learn about what is happening around us even though it does not have affected our daily lives at this moment.
