Answer The advantages of chemisty are so many that it's impossible to give more than a brief outline: Almost *all* medicines were discovered by *chemists*, not by physi…cians. (The latter are merely practicianers.) Food safety is dependent upon chemistry. Without chlorine (a chemical) water supplies would give typus rather than quench thirsts. Modern life, as we know it, could not exist without chemistry. Chemistry is the basis of *all* sciences. The disadvantages are based on one factor alone: Too many people are science illiterate and *misuse* chemicals. Answer Chemistry has so many uses in our daily lives that we could barely survive without it. Chemistry knowledge and methods are used to make: Detergents, Drugs and medicines, Textiles, Dyes and pigments and Fertilisers, to name only a few products. Answer A major disadvantage of chemistry is that matter changes when it comes into contact with another. Mostly we use that quality to an advantage--such as drugs, converting elements into energy, food, cleaners and so on. Sometimes, though, the elements can be used to wage war (chemical warfare, explosive devices) or may be accidentally mixed when used for a reasonable purpose. For example, using ammonia and clorine together has "gassed" many a housewife while cleaning.
Advantages: * You get to know more about the world around you. * More species would be discovered. * More scientists on the planet Earth. * More subjects for you to st…udy in school. * More technology for our convenience. Disadvantages: * Scientists die in labs because of accidents. * Too many species to keep track of. * Animals disturbed from habitats. * Plant species taken from environment. * Rare species threatened.
Disadvantages of science; science is very essential to our dail day life . but there are lot of disaffects they are as follows 1.due to nuclear development there is a da…nger of occurence of secon world war 2.due to nuclear radiation there are many diseases throught the world 3.it leads to globular warming
One disadvantage is that technology has arguably made people more anxious. Given that more people now rely on the Internet and do not have to socialize quite as much as they h…ad to, some people may feel that they lack the social skills that are required for high powered jobs and for a normal life. People can now live with ease without ever leaving their home. All their essential services can be provided by delivery, all of which can be organized either over the Internet or over the telephone. People can even work on the Internet, meaning that it is more than feasible for a person to live at home and literally never leave the house.
it just makes us lazy
it has religious disadvantages because of the theory that this earth began from the big bang
People became so dependent with science and technology.
There are no disadvantages to science, only to the applications for which science is used.
Vital Improvement in science will surely demolish the HUMAN RACE in near future. The growth of science has to be regulated by considering the valuable living beings… in mind. -Ramesh(Bangalore,India)
Day-to-day usage of technology affects health. Staring at the computer monitor all day will worsen eyesight. Using an earphone to listen to loud music will reduce hearing abil…ity. Talking on the cell phone while driving will endanger yourself, the passengers, and the people in adjacent cars. Eating processed and refined foods will cause weight gain. Irradiated vegetables will probably be free of harmful bacteria. Taking dental or chest Xrays willy-nilly will result in cell damage. Holding the phone between your chin and shoulder will eventually cause muscle spasms.
Learning Science the kids grow up to become scientists that invent things like the atomic bomb! But really, there are no disadvantages. Even a future housewife learns how th…ing work.
The disadvantages of science in daily life is that we are losing the some what "connection" between our past selves. Meaning that we are becoming more "non-original".
While the advantages of science to man and society are many, there are also significant disadvantages. For example, science is responsible for the development of nuclear techn…ology which has killed many people, blown up huge cities, and put the world in a state of constant terror over Mutual Assured Destruction for decades. Science also tends to push society toward a consumption oriented attitude simply because if you *can* do something then people will do it. Do we really need a world where everyone is polluting the air in their cars, etc.? Finally, science tends to dehumanize man into an equation. For those things where man was once confused and science has cleared up that confusion for us, science is great because it brought truth in those cases and truth is indeed great. But in many other cases science and scientists act like they know everything (such as the origin of man and of the universe) when in fact they are clueless children in many regards. In other words, science has the tendency to make man arrogant and irreverent. Some of the wiser scientists do concede that the more they learn the more they understand how clueless they are but too many act like they are demigods because they know something even if it is only a small piece of the infinite knowledge that is out there.
There is no question that there are many positive reasons for pursuing a political science major. The types of careers such a major can open doors to is almost endless. The pe…rsonal satisfaction gained by performing public service work for individuals and groups that need representation can be profound. The excitement of political science work in government and the private sector, as well as in intelligence work, is hard to imagine for those who have not experienced it. There are a lot of reasons for becoming a political science major. However, before deciding to pursue this major, it's also important to look at some of the disadvantages of pursuing a political science degree. For one thing, political science requires two very different types of study. Students who are pursuing the degree because of the opportunities it will provide in terms of service careers might find the rigorously scientific and statistical studies to be difficult. Students who are interested in the theoretical and abstract aspects of the discipline might be much less interested in the liberal arts - based classes. Pursuing a political science major will require very long hours of focused study. Political science students must literally know all about the world, and there are so many potential specializations that students must have a sense of all of them in order choose one. Another disadvantage is that the work can be terrifically stressful. Few political science positions are quiet desk jobs. Most deal with important, even life-and-death, issues on a regular basis. It is very common for political scientists to pursue work for groups with which they identify and to develop deep emotional attachment to the groups' goals. Politics, whether governmental, organizational, or individual, involve two or more strongly oppositional viewpoints. Working in political science almost certainly means working, at times, in tough situations or with individuals who represent a position diametrically opposed to yours. People can become stubborn, even downright difficult, in an attempt to sway a decision the way they want it to go. Unless you are able to remain levelheaded and tenderhearted in the face of difficulties, this may not be the best field for you. Finally, most political science jobs require you to pay careful attention to protocol. This field is filled with procedural steps that must be followed strictly and documented fully. If you are not a fan of paperwork or lack an appreciation for administrative organization, this necessary part of the job might represent a big disadvantage. Long HoursIf you want to be successful in your education and your career, you need to weigh the negatives as well as the positives when deciding whether to pursue a political science major or a major in another field. One of the things you'll need to accept is that political science, both in terms of your major at school and of a lifetime career commitment, will demand exceptionally long hours. If your primary reason for being in school is to party, you're best advised to pick a major that won't demand so much of your time and mental energy. Political science is serious business; since schools are training future world leaders, journalists, attorneys, top administrators, and policy analysts, it should be. There's really no shortcut here. Your core classes will be rigorous and demanding, and you'll need to put in a great deal of study time in order to make that mountain of essential, core information so familiar and easy to access that it will seem as if you've absorbed it into your very cells. Plan to put in long hours not just memorizing a huge amount of information, but also pondering it, interpreting it, and considering all the different ways it can be integrated with other information that will eventually lead to new concepts, approaches, and conclusions. And the work doesn't stop there. The world has been in a constant state of social and political flux since the dawn of human time. Politics ultimately boils down to how power is negotiated and managed; there are an infinite number of possible variations, combinations, and recombinations possible and you must stay up to date with all of them. It's probably a good thing that pursuing your political science major will require so much of you in terms of time and effort. School will teach you mental and physical habits that you'll draw upon throughout your professional career. As you can imagine, if you are in the middle of a political uprising and many thousands of people are depending upon you and your crew to report the latest skirmishes, you can't take a few hours for a little "me"- time. If you accept a position as a high-ranking administrator in your county's schools and a crisis occurs, you need to stay focused on the tasks that must be handled immediately, prepare for those that must be handled shortly, and constantly integrate new pieces of information as they come to you in order to establish control and return the situation to normal as swiftly as possible. If you decide to pursue a political position elected by voters, you'll have to put in many long and grueling hours on the campaign trail and, once elected, you'll discover quickly there is no rest for the weary. It's essential to both your career success as well as to those you've dedicated your professional life to serving that you understand that very long hours are a requirement in the world of political science.
science fiction is not a fact it is just a waste of time. science fiction is something we hear about day out. It is just a writing about aliens and spaces and strange creature…s-and people writing about the future Science fiction is constantly in danger of being incredulous, that is the reader may decide to not take it seriously and therefore lose all insight that the story was trying to convey. Most often this is the fault of the author as he/she may chose to include elements that are 'hard to swallow'. For instance few people take Star Wars: A New Hope seriously as they do not seriously believe that there is such a thing as The Force and that it can augment a person to perform Super-Human things. However readers can well believe the idea of a television that watches you as you watch it. I certainly do, in fact I'm sure that I could build such a thing quite easily. Therefore readers such as myself find 1984 a very frightening book indeed.
The disadvantages of Science in Space include wasting of money for the sake of space experiments,Polluting the space with the earth elements,Risking of life by astronauts to c…onduct space experiments,health problems for the Astronauts and the worst of all wasting a lot of precious time for the space experiments for the sake of little profit.
