How to Reboot Your Burnt-Out Brain

LG: That’s a good one. I have found the screen time limits to be too easy to ignore, frankly. But like any habit, probably just takes a little bit of effort. So when you get the notification that your time limit is up, you should probably just start paying attention to that and pick up, as you put it, use your hands to pick up something else.

The subject of taxing the internet — and everything that goes on over the internet — has been a hot issue virtually since the “network of networks” morphed from the NSF Net to the internet in the 1990’s.

The first phase of these tax debates was purely American, and it took place in the 1990’s when main street bookstores complained that online bookstores like Cadabra (renamed Amazon) — unlike main street bookstores — were selling books over the internet without collecting or paying sales taxes. Other main street merchants began to complain loudly as e-commerce rapidly expanded from books
