ative effects of high level technology in family life
Positive effects: The invention of medicines and therapies to treat previously-incurable diseases. Efficiency in transportation (public transport, high-fuel economy cars) and …communication (fiber optics, wireless communication). Preservation of rare species, some of which synthesize important compounds to the field of medicine and cancer research. Understanding the human mind in order to explain its predilections and quirks, and perhaps facilitating education in youth. Negative effects: Doing science will cause tooth decay and male-pattern balding at an early age. I jest; there are none I can think of that could possibly form the basis of a remotely rational argument against the advancement of science. Keep researching, my brethren!
Some of the positive impacts of technology are that it has helped bring about safer medical treatment. New research has brought about better treatment for some diseases. O…n the negative side, a lot of new technology has been used to make weapons that harm people. Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) have been used by the wrong people to harm others.
One kind of negative effects is a reduction of our privacy . Information about us is available in many social networking sites. The other is a safety issue - in the …information age there are new threats: viruses, hackers. Criminals and terrorists also use computers and smartphones, and and fighting with them is even harder than before.
The positive effect of technology on the environment is that it has made life a lot easier and effective through various types of technology. The disadvantage of technolog…y on environment is that it has led to more cases of pollution.
Technology has thousands of benefits, including the ability to communicate faster, organize and transmit data more efficiently. One major downside is DISTRACTION.
You can sum up both things in one word: Knowledge. Knowledge can either be good or bad, because there are some things that you would prefer to ignore, "ignorance is blessing…". However, science has given men and nature more benefits than negative effects. *Negative Effects: -Deforestation -Pollution -Animal Suffering (in animal testing) -Biological weapons -Genetically altered foods *Positive Effects: -Cures to unknown diseases -Better quality foods -Better manufacturing processes -Better understanding of the world -Better communication (internet, fiber optics, etc)
we are not really learning anything except how to become more lazy in life.....
Its depend on you, which one you feed that grow.
Yes.for example the internet can help you find information but it cam also be used to hack others computers.
The positive effect is that it accelerates what one person can do.(like a car =]) The negative effect is that that's not always a good thing and can sometimes hurt society. Wi…th tech you can make one person do the work of 100's or 1000's but that could also put 100's or 1000's out of a job. With tech, you can protect yourself by encrypting all your transmissions, however it makes it that much easier for someone to protect truly harmful transmissions like child p orn or criminal activity. Overall, and in a modern sense, tech decentralizes the power and control over the media and distributes it to regular people creating a more democratic society. In the same way, it destabilizes society by challenging the authority of institutions within that society who need to centralize power to maintain that control that does provide stability. However, the emergence of tech will show that old institutions are no longer needed. Think, CNN/major music labels being laid waste in the wake of blogging and file sharing. Hope that helps.
the positive thing about science and tech is that you learn new things that make life and other things more fun/ creative the negative thing is that it makes it more complex a…nd confusing and they have their downfalls
Information technology will speed up everything. The only negative of it when people become so dependent to it that it can not move with it.
they are all positive. less work
Positive factors are reduced time in acquiring information/free sharing of knowledge/no virtual barriers of distance and main negative effect is wrong information freely a…vailable.
