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!

the technology affect the education in schools because the students are allowed to bring cell phone and ipods which will make them going in a wrong way
Yes, firstly - technology leads the fight against doping to enhance the spirit of fair play in all kinds of sports. secondly - it helps to spread the message of unity, pro…motion of ethics as well as education of youths through the availability of smart phones, Internet, public media. thirdly - With the invention of smart cameras, one can keep vigilant of any violence, discrimination, cheating to act in the best interest of the Olympic Movements.
i dont know eveyone on here thta is reading wiki answers are pethtic and stupid have nthin in the minds and need to get a life therer fore the answers is ur stupid get a life …have girlfriend make her strip and dont come to me again
Technology is affecting the Information Technology world because Information Technology affects technology because the word, technology is within Information Technology.
Health expenditures continue to grow very rapidly in the U.S. Since 1970, health care spending has grown at an average annual rate of 9.8%, or about 2.5 percentage points fast…er than the economy as measured by the nominal gross domestic product (GDP). Annual spending on health care increased from $75 billion in 1970 to $2.0 trillion in 2005, and is estimated to reach $4 trillion in 2015. As a share of the economy, health care has more than doubled over the past 35 years, rising from 7.2% of GDP in 1970 to 16.0% of GDP in 2005, and is projected to be 20% of GDP in 2015. Health care spending per capita increased from $356 in 1970 to $6,697 in 2005, and is projected to rise to $12,320 in 2015.1 The particularly rapid increases in health insurance premiums over the last few years have focused the health policy community on the issues of cost containment and health insurance affordability. A key question from policymakers is why spending on health care consistently rises more rapidly than spending on other goods and services. Health care experts point to the development and diffusion of medical technology as primary factors in explaining the persistent difference between health spending and overall economic growth, with some arguing that new medical technology may account for about one-half or more of real long-term spending growth. This paper briefly describes what health policy analysts mean by medical technology and the mechanisms by which it affects the growth in health care costs.
recent studies show that televisions, computers, and cell phones can cause brain, liver, lung, rectal, throat, and intestinal cancer.
Papers upon papers can be written. For the most part, it has been positive. Progression is usually good, despite how it affects the economy.
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.
Technology evolve different culture of better economy , peaceful and crime free society as we find from decrypted secret of matured Harappan Civilization 1900-1300 BC in South… Asia. Most of the developed countries , Korea and many others have technology based culture. The useless and aimless education as a commercial product in many cases had destroyed the local technology and we get criminals , terrorist and money makers using any method. Golden sparrow South Asia most peaceful global traders Harappans came up as different culture in 1960s with different culture with simple way of living may be with US aid and industrial start. Technology and culture found a new dimension in 1970s. Now culture of corruption , terrorism and crimes has caused a great destruction to technology in last 5 years.
It became the first and the most creditable source of information and news. it became the main place where I can express myself. It can be the main source of money for me
If you think about it whatever the culture wants and is, the technology companies will make what is necessary. Also technology has changed are culture, if you think back to th…e 70's times were much different.
