    Technology Advances TECHNOLOGY The technology we have today would of boggled the minds of people from long, long ago. I mean people from B.C. times. When they were around their technology was being able to write, and paint of cave walls, and being able to make spears, bows, and arrows. Then around the Renaissance era (1300's - 1600's) we had weapons such as stronger and more efficient bows, straighter sturdier arrows. We had cannons, single shot black powder rifles and pistols, and huge slingshots. Around that time the printing press was just founded, and that was new to everyone. That made making books easier and cheaper, along with buying then also. Now it is the year of 2000. The technolo ...

  • Advances In Medical Technology - 917 words
    Advances In Medical Technology Advances in medical technology have done a great deal to produce miraculous cures and recoveries. In some circumstances however, these advances have created problems for the elderly. More aggressive technology approaches are used to extend the life of the elderly. On the whole the elderly, as well as others, welcome that development -- even if they fear some of its consequences. With these advances it has become possible to keep people in a vegetative state for almost unlimited periods of time. Moreover, there are situations in which neither the patient nor the family has the ability to bring such unhappy circumstances to an end. For this reason, advance direct ...

  • America At The Turn Of The Century - 1,246 words
    America at the Turn of the Century America at the Turn of the Century As America approaches the twenty-first century we are faced with many challenges as a country. The United States has a very strong country due to a few things that keep the country standing. The sufficient military has helped many other countries out of wars, the strong economy is the basis of the worlds economy, and the United States has a very advanced technology that has also helped rule the world today. These three things are so strong that there is not much that would bring them down. But in each category there are many small weaknesses that could cause our country to collapse as a whole around the turn of the century ...

    Bill Gates PAGE 1: BILL'S LIFE William Henry Gates III was born in Seattle, Washington, in 1955. "Bill" was called "Trey" by his father, since "Trey" means three. Trey was always smart, and always loved even the earliest computers he could get his hands on. He went to a public school at first, and made a few friends there. He was pushing all the school had to offer to the limits, until his parents decided to send him to a private school. He at first didn't like the idea, but shortly after decided to go. The new school he went to, called "Mothers' Club," was where he got his hands on his first computer. The mothers decided to have a rummage sale. The proceeds were used to buy a computer termi ...

  • Computers Can Eliminate Most Trips To The Office - 532 words
    Computers Can Eliminate Most Trips To The Office "COMPUTERS CAN ELIMINATE MOST TRIPS TO THE OFFICE" By Robert Moskowitz I found this article to be of great interest to myself because my work and life has revolved around telecommuting for the past several years. As the article indicates, "a telecommuter is anyone who works at least part of the time at home, in their cars, from clients' offices, and/or in hotel rooms and telephone booths." Although the article is somewhat dated (1995 to be exact), I feel that what Robert Moskowitz wrote about telecommuting back in 1995 still applies today. When I chose to go to work for ADP-Automatic Data Processing several years ago, I already had some previo ...

  • Computers Mimic The Human Mind - 1,461 words
    Computers Mimic The Human Mind Computers Mimic The Human Mind The mind-body problem has captivated the minds of philosophers for centuries. The problem is how the body and mind can interact with each other if they are separate and distinct. One solution to the problem is to replace any mental term with a more accurate physical description. Eliminative Materialists take this idea to the extreme by stating that everything that is believed to be mental will someday be explained in terms of the physical world. One way that people try to prove Eliminative Materialism to be true is through technology. Certainly if we are able to create computers and software that mimic the human mind, then Elimina ...

  • Distributed Computing - 1,360 words
    Distributed Computing As the technology we use today increases in speed and usability, there are those that are happy with the fastest computer. But then there are those that either want or need to go faster than the fastest. The solution lies in and around the Internet, the solution has been rightfully termed "Distributed Computing." Put simply, distributed computing is the splitting of a task among multiple computers. Hence using the power of many computers that people already have, thus sparing the cost of buying a supercomputer of equal proportions, which in some cases is impossible. Distributed Computing isn't all that hard of a concept to grasp. The first thing that would be done when ...

  • Hermaphrodite - 1,186 words
    Hermaphrodite Intro to Women's Studies Wsp 101 What is a hermaphrodite? The definition that Suzanne Kessler, The writer of Lessons from the Intersexed, gives us is that a true hermaphrodite is where a baby has either testes or ovaries, but the genitals are indistinct. This birth defect has been happening to a small percentage of babies throughout history ( ). A lot of Kessler's essay deals with the interviewing of six medical experts in the field of pediatric intersexuality. They supply the reader with plenty of information on the topic of intersexuality and babies born with ambiguous genitals. Kessler also supplies us with a great deal of information on the process parents have to go throug ...

  • In The First Chapter Of His Book The Age Of Spiritual Machines, Author Ray Kurzweil Gives A Very Brief History Of The Univers - 636 words
    In the first chapter of his book The Age of Spiritual Machines, author Ray Kurzweil gives a very brief history of the Universe, which serves as a preface for his subsequent theories. In this history, Kurzweil chronicles the rapid expansion of time between salient events in the history of the Universe, describing time, in his own words, as geometrically slowing (pg. 10). He then jumps headfirst into the history of evolution, and shortly thereafter of technology, in both of which the time between salient events is shrinking exponentially. This leads him to question the opposing nature of the trend (how can time be accelerating as applied to technology and evolution yet decelerating as applied ...

    Interview The Interview For my interview, I interviewed Jennifer Wong, a scientist in the development of analytic chemistry. In her occupation she purifies and analyzes proteins, as well as characterizes the proteins. She works for Panox located at 10301 Stellink Houston, TX 77025. For this company Dr. Wong analyzes proteins in order for her company to market drugs that will later help patients with certain diseases. Right now her company has not yet marketed any products yet, but they are still in the process. To arrange for the interview, I first asked my cousin, Tracy Bui, who is in the biochemistry field, but she referred me to her co-worker who had been working for that company longer. ...

  • Is Human Cloning Acceptable In Todays Society - 973 words

This argues the point that cloning can be ethical in the aspect that it will have its own personality and behaviors. I had an interview with Dr. Mike Harry who is a licensed veterinarian who practices at a successful walking horse farm in Shelbyville, Tennessee. While talking to Dr. Harry, I noticed a few similarities with a few of the walking horses he is associated with and Cigar. A world grand champion walking horse is not only valuable for his shows, but for his stud fees also. I asked Dr. Harry a fe ...

Its economy is only second to the United States in terms of production. However, Japan has not always contained a relatively strong economy. The Japanese's economic strategies have boosted economy to new heights since its fall during the second world war because of their unorthodox manner of business etiquette, innovative strategy, and strong relations with stable economies such as Canada and the United States. The rise to the top did not occur without a large struggle as many problems did occur after the Second World War left Jap ...

At times the PPF moves inward, reducing production possibility. Other times, it moves outward. Using the "Joe's Island" analogy for example, excellent growing and harvesting conditi ...

  • Modern Changes In International Equity Markets - 1,073 words
    Modern Changes In International Equity Markets Few things, you might think, are as enduring as a national stock exchange. From pillared entrance to pulsating floor, they display an institutional solidarity that can surely defy forces for change. And yet most of the world's bourses are now in turmoil, as they scrabble to be seen making alliances or mergers, to fend off electronic competitors, or simply to survive. Even New York, the biggest of the lot, is worried: while London, the biggest in Europe, seems to lurch from one misstep to another. (The Economist, 17th June 2000). These missteps have come about from a number of structural changes that have, and are still occurring within national, ...
