It's true, new technology is not always welcomed by everybody. So I've put together a list of 7 common barriers that people put up to avoid technology - and the simple ways to overcome these objections.

"Girls" depicted the parents of main character Hannah yanking their financial support of what they call her "groovy lifestyle." They are fed up with funding Hannah's work as an unpaid intern after she graduated from an expensive liberal arts college.

The deadline for Congress to approve a national budget is midnight tonight, but an agreement doesn't appear to be in sight, reports ABC News. If the budget is not approved, many segments of our federal government will stop functioning, starting tomorrow.
Those who would be immediately, directly impacted include the "non-essential" government employees and civilian defense personnel who would be furloughed without pay, and the 1.3 million military troops who would continue working, but whose paychecks would be delayed.

Let's take a look at the numbers, and how families may be affected by a shutdown:
