Conditioning is still practiced today. For example, operant conditioning, which includes the use of reinforcement to increase the probability of apparition of behaviour, is co…mmonly used in day to day life. A good example for this are fidelity cards or membership cards that give you points or some sort 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.
Ok, well, you gotta take into account that some rock bands will no longer be touring once you read this and that the Top Ten is impossible to be decided by us simply. We need …a poll to vote on the bands, why not contact VH1Classic? Bon Jovi is touring with their 10th album, Lost Highway. The Eagles came out with a new album. 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. Alice Cooper may still be touring. Motley Crue just finished CrueFest 2, and just finished the Dead of Winter Canadian Tour. Skid Row is still on the move. Poison just toured this summer (2009). Guns N' Roses may be touring to benefit Chinese Democracy, just finished Dead of Winter Canadian Tour. Joe Perry Project was touring with the Crue for the Dead of Winter Canadian Tour. Green Day are going to embark on a world tour to support the release of American Idiot on Broadway! (2010) If anyone can think of any other bands, I'd love to hear them. Thanks. ZZ TOP !
making schools try to see if his theories were correct
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 on 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 sinc…e 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 also led directly to the development of the laser, the electron microscope, and the transistor.

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 c…enter 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!
Plato's theories are useful as an important part of the history of philosophy. Plato was historically influential, but his theories are not accepted today as being philosophic…ally valid. It has been asserted by many philosophical historians that to read Plato's works is to help understand how he influenced basic human thought.

Yes. Of course it has been considerably elaborated upon, based onthe knowledge and technological aids we now have, but his generalconcepts still hold true.
