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!

Deficits of Technology Technology with its rapid growing speed is influencing old ways of doing daily affairs. We don't need anymore to move around to handle different …tasks and chores since all of them will be done in a matter of pushing a botton located on a remote control. Nobody can deny that technology has brought comfort to our lives, but almost all of us confess this fact that technology by itself has got a lot of deficits that in long term will cause a lot of side effects either physically or emotionally. This is a fact that through the multi-madia and the wide spread range of webs ( Internet) the concept of time and distance have been vanished and people can keep in touch with each other by means of such facilities. The negative view is the fact that they keep in touch in a virtual world not natural. Via the webs and maild the emotional feelings and thoughts can not be transfered. People can convey their attitudes and thoughts much more efectively when they are close to each other.
We interact with practical applications of scientific knowledge, more commonly known as technologies, on a daily basis. We wake to an alarm clock, cook breakfast on a ga…s-powered or electric stove, and go to school by car, bus, or bicycle. We work on computers in lighted classrooms, complete our assignments using pen and paper, and perhaps watch television or listen to music before going to sleep. Over the years, technologies have been invented to address society's problems or to fulfill its growing desire for speed and convenience. It's amazing to think that up until the last century, most people had to go outside of their homes to use the bathroom and wash up. Indoor plumbing, which is what allows you to take a bath inside your home, had only just been invented. Here's something interesting to note: Though new technologies might appear radically different from the ones they're intended to replace, more often than not, the old technology remains present in the new. Take, for example, a flashlight. It's superior to a candle in some respects: A match isn't needed to make it work, it won't set fire to other things, and it projects light farther. But essentially, a flashlight, like a candle, is still just a source of light. While you may be able to use any number of technologies without knowing what makes them tick, exploring their inner workings might encourage you to develop new uses for them, or even invent new technologies to improve them. When you look closely at computers, for instance, they're not much more than pieces of metal, plastic, and circuitry. It's a wonder that these parts -- each of them not capable of much on their own -- work together to enable us to do schoolwork, operate traffic signals, control aircraft in flight, and design so many of the products we use.
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.

Understanding the physics behind the trajectory of throwing a football is an example of science, while testing stronger material for sports equipment is vital for athletes.
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.
