Yes, we still use Pyramids in many different things. Art, Hotels, even Houses. The pyramid at the Louvre is very famous and was made even more so by Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci Code.
Technically no, but some are still around and are not used,but then again some are used at festivals. This is true but people today make and use little catapults still, but for fun and in science fair projects like me.
Conditioning is still practiced today. For example, operant conditioning, which includes the use of reinforcement to increase the probability of apparition of behaviour, is commonly used in day to day life. A good example for this are fidelity cards or membership cards that give you points or some s…ort of credit to be later used when you buy in certain stores. Those are made to increase the probability of you spending there. Positive reinforcement is also used in different types of settings and of interventions, such as in psychiatric hospitals, with children with behavioral problems, etc. (MORE)

Chicago is now touring with The Eagles. Led Zeppelin just somewhat reunited. Def Leppard is touring in 2009. Styx and REO Speedwagon are touring in 2009. Aerosmith are touring in 2009.

Yes. Destroyers still have a use in the fleets of today. They serve a number of purposes, including the duty of protecting the air craft carriers against submarine attacks. They provide gunfire support for troops on the shore and have anti-aircraft and anti-ship abilities as well.
its used for dicks also known as penis, to put on a girl if they dont want they're vagina.

Yes ,we do still use the theory of relativity as it deals with the relativity of motion and rest. And, it is of great importance for the micro-world like sub-atomic phenomena of nuclear interactions. So the theory of relativity will be always useful.
of course Dalton's atomic theory is still believed today. but it has some defects, like his first postulate states that an atom is indivisible. but as you know its not correct. but the 4th and 5th postulate of his were exactly correct and are still the basis today. for a better answer please check o…n wikipedia.

Every time the medical establishment tries to predict the types of seasonal flu they are using the theory of evolution by natural selection, which has come a bit of a way since Darwin.

It explaines the structure of atoms, atomic nuclei , and molecules; the behaviour of subatomic particles; the nature of chemical bonds ; the properties of crystalline solids ; nuclear energy; and the forces that stabilize collapsed stars.

It is definitely used by terrorists as well as North Korea and Iran I'd imagine. However, if it exists in the U.S. is still unknown.
We are still using glasses today but we as mankind have improved the structure of glasses ( e.g we added pads that sit on the bridge that connects one lends to the other, we use different material to construct the shape ).
Apparently it is still used as a demonstration tool in shop orscience classes. Since a practical, working limelight today would requirepressurized sources of oxygen and a suitable fuel (acetylene, MAPPgas, or even propane), and would generate disagreeable vapors, isis virtually certain none are in …use except as historicalcuriosities. The science class demos do not use a specially-builtdevice; instead such a demo may be as simple as a lump of lime inforceps heated with a jeweler's oxy-propane welding torch. (MORE)
Of course. It is used for sport such as racing and recreation and general transport. Have a look at some pictures of Chinese cities, you will see many bikes in use.

Yes, ziggurats are still used today but they are not called the same thing. Since ziggurats are like temples/worships for God, what comes to my mind are churches. We go to church for special learning's of God's life, and for praying, and to talk to God. Hope this helped(:
Yes, canals are still used. There are several major shipcanals around the world, such as the Suez Canal (Red Sea toMediterranean Sea) and Panama Canal (Pacific to AtlanticOceans). There are also a goodly number of smaller canals and"navigations" (rivers modified to be navigable) around,particu…larly in Holland, France and Britain; but these aregenerally used now by pleasure-craft although they were built ascommercial waterways. Britain has a large, complex network of 18C canals thatlargely fell into disuse during the 19C when the new railways tookaway most of their trade, but which have been restored in the lastfew decades for pleasure use. The Rivers Severn, Avon and Thamesare all linked by such canals; and the City of Birmingham has animpressive mileage of canals around it, originally serving thewealth of local industries. (MORE)

Some are even called ballistic missiles. (MORE)
Zinc is an extremely valuable metal in today's world. Its anti-corrosive properties find use in roofing iron, electrolytic passivising in marine work, and there is a small number of medicinal applications. Brass and similar alloys are a significant user of Zn. The daily intake of this essential el…ement is about 9mg per day and 14gmg for men. It is present in a great number of the bodies enzymes, and you have perhaps 2 to 4 gm of Zn in your body. Zn with Cu are perhaps the simplest of battery demonstrations. (MORE)

Yes it is used in everyday life. The most common use would be for electricity, as gas is used toheat water in power stations which in effect createselectricity. . ++++ I will expand that to clarify it. Heating the water inpower-stations does not "in effect create electricity". Rather, itis boiled… to produce steam at very high temperature and pressure,and this is used to drive turbines that in turn rotate thealternators that actually generate the electricity. (MORE)
There were two theories concerning the way the solar system was layed out. Back before Nickolas Copernicus presented his heliocentric system (the idea that the sun is in the center of the solar system and all the planets revolve around it) the accepted model was the geocentric system (the idea that …the earth is in the center of the solar system and all the planets and the sun revolve around it). Galileo Galilee was a huge advocate of the heliocentric system but the church threatened to expel him if he continued to contradict the system that had existed and accepted for hundreds of years. Obviously, the Copernican system eventually gained total acceptance from the scientific community and recent technologies have been invented that have allowed us to prove that Copernicus was right. So, the answer is because it has been proven and observed by science! (MORE)

Science has been always the basis of every knowledge. Today it is used as it was since the man started thinking. Curiosity leading to new approaches.
Meters are used as a base measurement of length in almost all countries (excluding America).
Its used in the Vatican .... There is , however, a lot of arguing about how words arepronounced, since Latin is considered a "dead" language and there'sno one you can ask about pronounciation. So the way Latin is spokentoday may as well differ from the way it was spoken 2000 years ago. Also, it is …difficult to include new expressions (Television,microwave, computer, train, a.s.o.) into the language, since thosethings didnÂ´t exist during Roman times .... (MORE)
