My Best Day Ever It seems to me that birthday celebrations’ become less interesting as time passes. There are no more party hats, balloons, cake, ice cream, and the joyful sound of “Happy Birthday.” I guess that’s why we hold all the good memories inside our heart, so whenever there’s a bad issue that may come up, we can reminisce on the past. In fact, birthday celebrations in my family were rare because my grandmother was raising eight children in a three bedroom house by herself, and she wasn’t able to provide certain things we needed at times. I do remember one special birthday that made me realize how important family means to me. On March 22, 1979, it was a warm, beautiful, breezy, summer day, and I could hear the chirping of baby birds in their nest. Upon my face shined the bright sun through my bedroom window. This day represented my birth right of turning fourteen years old, and I needed to figure out what to wear on this special occasion. As I walked toward my closet door, there was a breeze of warm spring sunflowers gathering in each corner of my bedroom. As I inhaled this delightful smell, I thought of my favorite sunflower dress to wear. The length went below my knees and it had two straps on each shoulder. The base color of my dress was pure white cotton material with medium sunflowers patterns around the bottom. I chose my flat flip-flop scandals and brushed my hair into a ponytail with a white ribbon tied in a bow. At that moment in my life, I felt like a beautiful young lady. As I stood in front of the mirror admiring myself, a loud knock rattle from the other side of my bedroom door. I opened the door, and there stood my sisters and brothers with the excitement of “Happy Birthday” roaring off their tongues. My eyes began to fill with tears just knowing that my family was as excited as I was about my special day. We all decided to run…...

The Influence of Technology in World War Ii

...The Influence of Technology in World War II “Dunkirk has fallen… with is has ended the greatest battle of world history. Soldiers! My confidence in you knew no bounds. You have not disappointed me.” (Adolf Hitler, 1940) With World War I behind us, we go forward to rebuild the world as we see fit, for the better good of humankind. With the war ending, a treaty was made, an agreement to put an end to bloodshed and suffering, but from the perspective of the losing side, the treaty was no more than a match striking the fuse. The Treaty of Versailles was intended to end the war; however, it was one of the main causes that left Germany in a bitter state of mind that would later lead to another war. The treaty in itself was rather harsh, one of the conditions of the treaty was for Germany to accept blame for starting the war, another condition being that Germany pay 6,600,00.00 British Pounds for war reparations. Germany was left without an army as well, they were forced to reduce their military forces to a small army and a few naval ships, but nothing more, this in turn caused the country much dismay. As one of the last terms of the treaty, parts of the country were given away. Slowly but surely, the anger begins to build and as always, when a country has no one to lead it, the first to step into the throne will be at power. In 1933, Adolf Hitler did just that, he was elected the Chancellor of Germany and without a second thought, he began strengthening the Germany military. He...

How Technology Has Changed the World

...Technology has change the communication process by roots, now in days is almost impossible for people not to use technology to communicate. A huge example is Facebook, everybody even my grandmother has a Facebook account. This source of communication makes it possible for her to post pictures and chat live with her relatives on the other side of the world. On the other hand Business have also changed people communications within, most businesses have gone paperless where memos or messages are sent via emails, conference agendas, and some even provide cell phones for faster communication. Now in days if you want to sell yourself for job positions you must file the application online and attached your resume as well. Everything is about technology, in my job we are required to use ADP for our paystubs, change of address, and medical plan choices. Just as an example I was at the LA county office and an elder walks in and apparently he was asking to see his case officer; the first response of the receptionist was if had an appointment scheduled. The man said no but he was trying to make her understand that he had called his officer before but there was no response. The receptionist replied that the problem was that now in days the only method to make appointments was trough the website or a kiosk that was on the corner of the office. I saw his facial expression of wordiness. He was sending her a message but she was too busy to help him. I step up and ask to help him, I felt so......

Technology Flattened the World

...Thomas Friedman takes a jibe of the “It’s a small world, after all” theme and writes a lengthy article on his discover that the world, in terms of innovation, technology, geo-economics and globalization that the world is “flat,” after all. He starts the article off by comparing Christopher Columbus’ discovery in 1492 of the world being round when he set sail searching for India. Thomas Friedman also set off to search for India however for many different reasons. He writes the article, “It’s a Flat World, After All,” in a way to encourage the reader to prepare for the future. He stresses the importance of studying science and engineering. He makes several references to surrounding countries being significantly more advanced than America. In 2001, China had twice as many college graduates than the United States and India had one million more students graduate than the United States. China also had six times as many students with engineering degrees than the United States. After reading this article, I would have to agree with Thomas Friedman, that the world is indeed flat in terms of innovation, technology, geo-economics and globalization. Education facilitators, human resource departments and even parents in the United States need to encourage furthering education and engaging individuals in pursuing science and engineering in order for our country to compete in the emerging markets in the technologically advancing race. I believe this is a good article which......

World Is Smaller from Technology

...Disabilities in people can be from hearing lose or to an extreme case as being blind. Even people with disabilities have a right to learn just like people with no disabilities. Certain hardware and software designs have been created by many people to help these disabilities people thru their everyday struggle. I chose four devices that show how they help these individuals. The first software I have chosen is the Co:Writer 4000. This software is used in sync with software like word processor or story-writing program. It is a type-and-speak writing assistant, created to aid users to write complete and correct sentences with little keystrokes. This software was produced by Don, Johnston, Inc.

Technology in a Brave New World

...Technology is defined as using the entire body of science, methods, and materials to achieve an end. Technology, or techne, is so preoccupied with weather it can, it never considers if it should. In "Of Techne and Episteme," a article on technology and humanities, the author Eddy warns us that a society without epistemological thinking would lead to a society of "skilled barbarians." This is the topic of the novel Brave New World in which Aldous Huxley portrays a future world where babies are manufactured on an assembly line and put into a social class while they are still embryos in a test tube. As children they are engineered to be content with their rank in this world where love, viviparous reproduction, and knowledge of anything beyond your job serves no purpose. A look at Brave New World supports Eddy's beliefs on the importance of humanities in society because of unethical genetic experimentation and the character's lack of individuality. The society of Brave New World has gained the knowledge to produce babies much like their God, Henry Ford, produced the Model T. They have taken this technology and exploited it for their own benefit. They have created with their hands without using their head or heart. Scientists toy with the embryos, cutting off oxygen to those predestined to become lower caste members. Those chosen to work as rocket plane engineers were in constant rotation during the embryonic phase of their life. "Doing repairs on the outside of...

Technology in the World

...Sade’ McMullen Professor Rozga English 1102 October 21, 2013 The world today revolves around technology. Everywhere we look, something new is being created. Whether it’s the new iPhone, tablet, or even inventions like paper towel dispensers. As I looked for another outlet to compare the LCK monologue to, I came across one about bathroom technology by a comedian, Demetri Martin. Martin explains his hatred towards new technology, except his is about bathroom technology. In the LCK monologue, he talks about his hatred towards smartphones and how they are effecting today’s society I feel the claim being made is that many of these new advances serve no purpose and isn’t needed in today’s world. In the LCK monologue, he explains how kids want a smartphone because all their peers have one and they want to look cool in order to not be an outcast (LCK smartphones). Martin also tells a story of how the inventors of technology thought it would be cool to have all these automated devices in public restrooms. Martin does not like the devices because of how complex it is to use them. He believes the devices make people look stupid just trying to get them to work properly.(Martin Bathrooms) In LCK monologue, he believes society has become lazier and we let technology do a lot for us. For example, kids playing video games all day long instead of going outside to play with the neighborhood kids. Since the inventors built the new devices in bathrooms, it makes people look lazy as if they...

5 Ways to Succeed in Today’s Technology-Driven World

...5 Ways to Succeed in Today’s Technology-Driven World I have learned some valuable considerations about marketing by leveraging technological advancements while reading the article “5 Ways to Succeed in Today’s Technology-driven World” by Bart Foster posted on August 6th on the website Mediapost.com. His article outlines how technology is changing the face of the healthcare industry by way of data digitalization, mobile applications, and self-service customer platforms. He argues that healthcare companies should pay attention to the importance of technology driven marketing not only for the benefits of aiding their clients/patients but also so they can ride the tide of the social media and data cloud technology. Conventional marketing techniques are becoming outdated and, according to a source of the article, chief marketing officers will be budgeting more for technology than Chief Information Officers by the year 2017. According to Mr. Foster’s article, healthcare companies must take full advantage of their technology by reaching the following five goals. First, professionals need to get technical with their understanding so as to ensure a full understanding of the possibilities of the benefits of technology rather than only relying on their technology department to serve in this capacity. Secondly, executives need to embrace collaboration. Chief marketing officers and chief information officers are working more and more together in a daily operational setting......

Technology Change the World

...Technology change the world In China, we have a saying that “Science and technology is the first productive force”. Technology affects people’s daily life, with the innovation of technology, the world developed rapidly in recent centuries. Image that if our forefathers do not create new technology, how our life will be today; we will not have lots kind of food like today; we will not have vehicles such as car, train, aircraft, and we will not have so many high buildings to live. In this class, we learnt a lot of historical events before 1500 AD. In ancient time, there is no advanced technology in the world; our ancestors can merely use their hands to change the nature. Gradually, they find some regularity in the world, such as round objects can move much easier than other shape; then they use their intelligence create lots of new technologies, and innovate the technologies as needed. In this paper, I will talk about five great inventions which affect the world significantly; they are wheel, water wheel, compass, paper, and plow. The invention of the wheel is one of the most important inventions in the ancient time. Without the wheel, the world would not develop so fast. According to the existing data, the wheel is invented by the Mesopotamian in about 2500 BC ("The invention of," 2010). The development of wheel has 6 stages, starting from rolling cylinder, moving to two wheels connect with axles by spokes (Bellis, 2012). At the beginning, people realized that round......

Technology and Progress in Brave New World

...Upon entering the “Squat Grey Building” that is the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre; you will see the motto of the World State: Community, Identity, and Stability. These three words reflect the ultimate goal of the Utopia that is the World State. “Community” means that everyone within the Utopia must work together to maximize happiness for the society as a whole. “Identity” refers to the five classes of hereditary social groups that are created through genetic engineering. Finally, “Stability” refers to the ultimate goal of the Utopia. By creating similar people and censoring and controlling actions, the society looks to minimize conflict, risk, and overall change. The three goals of the World State are completely controlled through the use of science and technology in Brave New World, which thereby stripped its residents of all social aspects and personal freedoms. By creating the Brave New World Huxley shows the importance of technology and progress to society, which makes us stop and consider how our current progress and advancements in technology have affected our society as a whole. Before looking into how people in the World State are restricted from having any free will, it is important to define what it means to be human. In my opinion, all humans are born with free will. I would define free will as the equal and inalienable rights to be an individual who can make their own choices. The ability to act at one’s own discretion without......

Biology and Technology in the Real World

...products they have consulted on available at www.fda.gov. On the flip side, organizations such the Non-GMO Project vehemently protest the production and consumption of genetically modified organisms. This side of the argument brings up issues with GMOS related to health, damage to the environment, and the violation of the rights of consumers and farmers. The protest of genetically modified organisms can be linked to the increased knowledge and awareness that more and more organisms are being modified, as opposed to previous years where it was relatively unknown that this was occurring. Apparently, although they are widely produced and distributed, most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. This is surprising due to the fact that they are required to adhere to the same standards as traditionally bred products. In terms of the environment, because genetically modified organisms are produced to withstand certain kinds of herbicides, toxic herbicide use has increased dramatically. These organisms are also responsible for the emergence of resistant “super-weeds” and “super-bugs”, which can only be killed with poisons that are exceptionally toxic. The long term effects of these organisms has yet to be seen, and what effect they may have on the environment......

Biology and Technology in the Real World

...Luis Marte Biology and technology in the real world BIOL 103 Introduction to Biology Genetically modified organisms February 7, 2016 Genetic engineering generally refers to the use of tools of modern biotechnology and molecular biology to specifically introduce or alter characteristics or traits in organisms. Scientists can use these tools to introduce new genetic material, or delete existing genetic material to introduce intended new or altered traits or characteristics. Many kinds of GE animals are in development. At this time, the largest class of GE animals is being developed for biopharm purposes—that is, they are intended to produce substances (for example, in their milk) that can be used as human or animal pharmaceuticals. Another group of GE animals are under development for use as sources of scarce cells, tissues, or organs for transplantation into humans (xenotransplant sources). Yet others are intended for use as food and may be disease resistant, or have improved nutritional or growth characteristics. And others include animals that produce high value industrial or consumer products, such as highly specific antimicrobials against human and animal pathogens (e.g., E. coli 0157 or Salmonella).
