How will technology affect the Olympics?
Olympic Technology It has already affected the Olympics. Timing is now down to fractions of seconds. It used to be the first one to cross the finish line and everyone ran at once. Now they run heats allowing everyone to have a clear track to run on. Uniforms, shoes and goggles are all scientifically designed to provide the least resistance and best grip. Games are designed and held to maximize media exposure to allow competition to be watched around the world. And the best athletes in the world can be gathered together in a matter of days, instead of weeks of train and boat travel. Did you know that the rules of the javelin event had to be modified and the shape and materials of the javelin were changed, as athletes were throwing over 100m, putting spectators lives at risk!

modern technology brings a drastic changes in peoples life the became inactive ,due to lack of physical activities human body is a growth factory o f diseases like dm, htn, he…art diseas etc.i thuink the more the technology grows the more the humans became ill
Usually, new technology will increase productivity in the economy. For example, if you replace a human in a factory with a robot that can work twice as quickly without breaks,… productivity would increase.
recent studies show that televisions, computers, and cell phones can cause brain, liver, lung, rectal, throat, and intestinal cancer.
Change in student and teacher roles • Increased motivation and self esteem • Technical skills • Accomplishment of more complex tasks • More collaboration with …peers • Increased use of outside resources • Improved design skills/attention to audience [if you want to more knowledge about each point listed above you can ask me . .] AND HERE IS YOUR SECOND ANSWER ABOUT MEDIA EFFECTS ON STUDENT/STUDENT LIFE.. MAKE SURE THAT THE ANSWER WON THE FIRST PRIZE Effect of media on students elocution contest organised by the Swadeshi Jagarana Manch. I would like to draw your attention to a news item published in The Hindu on June 26, 1966, about a youth. A 14-year-old boy named Charles, influenced by a Horror film "Warlock", viewed on television, killed and skinned a 7-year-old playmate Jonathan Thimpson and then cooked the victim's flesh on a stove. Normally in Canada, children under 18 are tried in youth courts and their names cannot be made public. But Charles, due to the nature of the case, was tried in adult court. From the above example we can understand and estimate how much television influences children. Children are exposed to violent acts in the films and this tends to increase their aggressive nature. They begin to fight fiercely among themselves. A six-year investigation of 1,565 boys in London revealed that boys who were habitual viewers of violent programmes on television tend to commit significantly violent acts. Quite a few adolescents also indulge in eve teasing while imitating their favourite villains in the films. Bad films and television thus damage the present generation and would prove as a disaster for the future generation, undermining the moral fabric of society. Children also have an unconscious tendency to identify themselves with the models in their view. The artistes of television are also imitated. The imitation of good may be more but one per cent of bad creates nuisance in society, apart from causing psychological disturbances. Advertisements, mainly on television, also influence the children in many ways since the majority of them are fantasising and exploit psychological emotions. In the present era of competitive business, advertisements are almost inevitable to the companies to promote their products but some companies invest a huge amount on publicity. I do not mean that television should not be watched, but the viewing of such channels should be strictly restricted viewers over 18 years of age by implementation of suitable laws. We should also have self-imposed restrictions. Lastly, I would like to conclude that television is no doubt a boon for mass communication and entertainment. But the viewers of it should be aware of the darker side to it and take pains to exercise strict control over bad films and programmes.

That is an excellent question, but there is not a simple answer. Technology has a huge impact on warfare, from how they are fought to how long they could last and how many cas…ualties each side would take. I'll give you an example off the top of my head. In the Civil War, the accepted means of battle were for each side to square off against each other and exchange volleys of fire at each other. This may sound insane by our standards, but consider the limits of technology and it may make more sense. By our standards, the musket was a heavy and inaccurate weapon (generally speaking), which took a considerable amount of time to load and discharge. A skilled infantryman could fire only four shots a minute. This led to the tactic of large formations to maximize firepower. In this sense, technology had a direct effect on how men waged war. Not so much later, during WWI, technology had advanced to the point where the formations of the Civil War were completely obsolete. Such a tactic would amount to nothing more than an execution in the face of new bolt-action rifles and machine guns. Armored tanks, although ineffective by the limits of technology at the time, would greatly influence the Blitzkreig tactics of the German Army in WWII twenty or so years later. And the airplane, which served primarily as spotters in the early years of the war, would be adapted as a machine of war as its offensive and defensive potential was realized. But the greatest effect technology has on warfare is the destructive power that each soldier can bring to bear. Like I said earlier, the average musket-wielding infantryman could fire four shots a minute. Today, even the least trained soldier can fire four rounds in a second. Machine guns, sniper rifles, warplanes, and ships all allow the military to accomplish more using less manpower. Some people cynically call war an economic contest of nations, ushered by mass-production technology. The importance of technology in all things, including war, cannot be understated. While the most obvious military technology is used to kill people, some quiet military technology has arguably prevented some death. In general, fewer people die in attacks where "smart bombs" are used than in the "carpet bombing" of "dumb bombs". Satellite photos and UAV photos can potentially convince people to spare certain buildings and locations that they would otherwise demolish. Military aircraft often airdrop food and medical supplies. Airdropped propaganda leaflets are useful to convince people to surrender without bloodshed. Megaphones are useful to help convince people to surrender without bloodshed. There have been cases where helicopters and airplanes have been used to evacuate soldiers and civilians who believed they would otherwise be overrun and killed. ... the effect of airplane photography on the Cuban Missile Crisis ... Many non-military technologies also affect war. In particular, the first war where color television cameras were carried into war ... Telephones -- in particular, the so-called "red phone" -- ... Also, note that "new" technology does not often get used immediately in War, and even if it does make it into the next war after its invention, often does not have any noticeable impact. The key is the use of technology in new and innovative tactics. These new tactics often incorporate certain abilities of the technology that are different than any other, to make a significant impact on warfare. It is thus common for a weapon (or technology) which has been around for a significant amount of time, without being notable in any way, to suddenly become a game-changing weapon, because someone thought up a new way to use it. Conversely, it is also possible for technology to simply obsolete old tactics, not by any new or outstanding capability of the technology, but simply because the new technology pushes beyond what the old tactics were capable of dealing with. The machine gun is a stellar example of this latter case: having been invented more than three decades before WW1, and quite extensively used in those three decades after being invented, it was hardly a "new" technology in WW1. However, the refinement of the use of the machine gun caused the obsolescence of frontal assault tactics by infantry, and forced a radical overhaul of small-unit tactics.

If this is from Home Eco then: Technology has a huge affect on literacy life. Tech. allows you to explore the world as it is today.
Technology and Science have to be looked at individually. Technology, when though of, is what man has created ("tech" means craft). Technology can govern what is said about a…rt or applied sciences. Technology affects our society because technology is all around us. It is what allows us to advance forward through our eras. Primitive technology could be considered hammers made by Neanderthals. Science is very different from technology. Science is not what we can create, but is more focused on our world and how it functions. Learning how a bird flies is science, but mimicking a bird through aviation would be technology. Science is about gathering knowledge through a systematic perspective and creating theories and laws to prove what we have learned. Science IS our world, and that is how it affects the world. Science and technology are just words created by humans and therefore humans decided what is technology and what is science.
Cough Cough, I had to answer the question I asked.... First Answer by me: Evolution affects technological systems in an assortment of ways. It has made technological systems… more portable, easier to use, and contain more memory. The technological systems of today have many uses ranging from typing up document to entertainment. Technology is used by many humans, and without it, we wouldn't be where we are today. The portability and ease of use of technology has dramatically improved in the last decade. Take phones, for example. When the first phones appeared, they were the size of a picture frame and were not portable; they were a real hassle to use. Today, phones can fit in the palm of your hand, and you can take them almost anywhere. When the first technological systems appeared, they didn't please humans too much all because of their portability and ease of use being so low. Over a few decades, technological systems evolved to be more portable, decreasing in weight and size but still able to do the same thing. Technological systems that were too hard to use, too heavy, or too big were not chosen by humans, and were usually discarded. Memory capacity has rapidly expanded to be really massive. The demand for greater memory capacity in technological systems by humans increased as they obtained more data to store. For example, the first computer stored around 3,000 bits, and today, there are 858,993,459,200 bits in your average computer, that's around 286 million times more space! Over time, technological systems have developed more efficient ways of storing data, so that their size and weight aren't affected that much by how much they can store. Technological systems with more data space and a larger size and weight, and technological systems with less data space and a smaller size and weight were cast-off more often than technological systems with a lot of memory, but a smaller weight and size. To sum it all up, I think that evolution has caused technological systems to adapt to human needs, and, overtime, become really different devices. Portability, ease-of-use, and memory storage were key elements of the adaption and evolution of technology. Without evolution, technological systems and organisms wouldn't have changed over time to become what they are today. Every organism would be a cell, each cell exactly the same. Technological systems wouldn't even exist. Without evolution, there is no biodiversity. Another Answer by me on the same question: Evolution has affected our technological systems many times. It has helped us develop our modern technology and has also affected global life in immense ways. Without evolution, we would have never developed the technology we have today. The human brain has evolved both creativity wise and intelligence wise. If it weren't for evolution, life may have not even sustained on earth. Creatures may not have been able to adapt to the environment and therefore died off. Even if the humans survived, we wouldn't have known all about the past and that there were organisms before us. In a worst case scenario, we wouldn't have ever existed since we couldn't have evolved from 'reptilian creatures'. With evolution we were able to expand our knowledge. As the human brain progressively grew more complex, we developed amazing things. We could build almost "indestructible" homes, we discovered fire and cooked our food, and we even left the planet! The human race has done some amazing things that no other species can, all due to mutations, and natural selection, which is a part of evolution. If you look at it, you can see that evolution has almost affected everything about our technology, government, and our daily lives. Some people say that evolution is also affected by technology. Many scientists agree that technology is lowering the rate of evolution for humans. We may have evolved greatly in order to discover this technology; it may still have a negative effect on our lives. If we're not careful, we may barely evolve at all! Overall, there has been a great impact on our technology, all due to evolution. I think humans evolved faster than other species due to some natural occurrence. If we wait long enough, maybe even other animals such as the cat may become as developed as us!
