Yes! I think pauls science group is very good for him as it is very smart. Paul has exceled beyond his limits this year, and has become very confident when speaking out loud a…nd talking to the class.
Science helps me understand more about myself, my environment, and the creatures and objects around me within the environment. Technology allows me to complete daily tasks mor…e efficiently and accurately and express myself by use of digital mediums. India could benefit from technological advancements the same way as I do, but only if they keep the human element in the mix. Don't let the technology control you, control your technology and don't abuse it.
You cannot run very fast or for a long period of time. By capturing and domesticating a horse, you can harness its speed and power for short gain. A saddle, stirrups, and harn…ess are technologies that improve your ability to perform other activities on horseback, such as throwing a spear or lassoing a calf. The ox is much stronger than you are. You can furrow a field for agriculture with a stick, but you can turn a lot more earth with a team of oxen hitched by a yoke to a plow. This technology permits you to grow more food for yourself and your family, and to increase your status, your social standing, among friends and neighbors. You can pummel enemies with your fists, or strangle them one by one with your hands. But to kill more effectively you might interdict hostile populations with explosive missiles guided by inertialless systems or targeted with lasers. Imagine the firepower of an F15 Strike Eagle. Air to air sidewinder missiles which you can fire and forget in aerial dogfights. 50 millimeter cannon great for strafing enemy columns and formations on the ground. If Napoleon Bonaparte had a couple of F15s (and the support systems they require), his outcome at Waterloo would have been vastly different. The Japanese Zero was a fiercesome weapon during World War II, causing the United States much anguish, grief, and hardship. We finally responded with the P-38 Lightning, and the P-51 Mustang, which helped turn the tide of war in our favor. Then, of course, there was the technology of nuclear fission, which brought about the sudden end of those hostilities and has helped maintain the peace ever since. Today we face the situation where radical zealots armed with box cutters have defeated our nuclear arsenals. Would it be morally acceptable to incinerate a few hundred thousand people in response? We decided no--at least not with our nuclear technology. Technology has produced many benefits for our species. We have probed the most distant edges of our universe, and have peeked back in time to its birth 13.7 billion years ago. We have answered many questions as to our origins, through biological evolution, and the science of genetics, paleontology, and nuclear physics (used in that case in the absolute dating of fossils through the clever measurement of isotope ratios). Science and technology have improved the standard of living for billions of people on our planet, so the reasons for interest in these fields are of enormous consequence.
How will science and technology change your lives in the future and what should India do to stay ahead in the game?
Well, I may not have more than one life now, but in the future, science and technology may indeed enable me to have more than one life. Since I have only one life now, this sc…ience and technology would make the change of making these additional lives exist. (If this is not what you meant, please clear up the grammar in your question) Science and technology may affect these lives in many ways. Unless in one of these lives I become a low-paid factory worker to make this technology, or the technology takes over and enslaves the population of the Earth, the change is unlikely to be negative. There are countless ways in which it could be positive; it would improve lifestyle and longevity; providing better entertainment and healthcare (just to give some examples). On your completely separate question about India, I believe it would first be wise to ask 'What game?' as there is no game in which India, as a country, participates. Perhaps you refer to the technological race, or some other race for progress. India has a low GDP and is not a world leader in terms of technology (though it is certainly up there). To get decent degrees, its students come here, to Britain, where the degrees are reputable and valuable. To 'stay ahead' would imply that it is already ahead, which it's not (unless they're hiding something). To get to the top, I think there is a valuable lesson which can be learned from a region within their own country; Kerala. The GDP of Kerala is six times the national average, so they're clearly doing something right. In Kerala, they encourage the education of women and offer better free healthcare and family planning. To improve their situation, India should probably reproduce this model across the country. Of course, there are other ways in which they could increase their GDP/capita, but this is probably the most appropriate. You're probably wondering what that has to do with technology. I believe that if the GDP/capita increases sufficiently, there will be more interest in high-tech industry and consequently there will be more technological progress in India.
Human life has totally changed since arise of science and technology. We have reached upon top of our life by the help of science and technological things. Science and technol…ogy has totally revived our life and taught us the way to live our life. Science and technology has not only changed our life but also our physical appearance, character, style, etc. As science and technology has changed step wise, similarly human life has also changed steeply. It can be known by thinking that our primitive used to be chimpanzee / monkey so thought by our ancestors, then we developed a little and changed into human being living in jungle and using leaves of plant as clothes. At last we became fully matured and emerged as a social being preferring to live in society rather than jungles. That is one of the great change that science and technology has provided to us. Science and technology has also changed our way of living. The work which we did our selfin past time is being done by machines now-a-days. The combination of science and technology has been done to make such robots which can do home as well as official works. It can also do works like gardening, cooking, cleaning, etc. This is also a great change by help science and technology and also a great achievement for scientists in field of science and technology. So, considering all above changes with the help of science and technology we can say that prevailing of science and technology in this situation is a great change for we human beings. It's change captured us and has also helped us a lot to raise our standard of living.

India is a growing economy. So for a growing economy energy is the most important thing. My personal view is India must do more nuclear test but not in next 5/6 years. We have… just signed the nuclear deal. So we need all the technology for our civilian nuclear program which was denied to us. The world economy is in recession and we are facing the worst drought in 30 odd years. So the time is not right. India has no ambition of pilling up nuclear arsenal. We want to have a minimum nuclear deterrent which will make our neighbors think 100 times before attacking us. I do believe we have a minimum nuclear deterrent. So once we are in a great economic position and we have all the technology for our civilian nuclear energy program we can go for a testing. We have not signed the CTBT. So testing is not a problem for us. Nuclear testing will bring with it a lot of sanctions. But I have no doubt like 1998 we can face the sanctions. But we need to carefully calculate the timing of our test
yes, as the fossil fuels are scarce and the no. is decreasing day by day we have to find a cheap, efficient and clean source for energy generation. Also this makes the electri…city rates to go down, and expanses come under the belt...... this can be the next step for a brighter future of India. these are my thoughts, but I don't know what others think, if someone is reading thank you for reading, regards Lakshay Sharma (K2)

What is a action verb in that spring the team should have been training for the summer games ahead.?
The action verb is 'training' or, including auxiliary verbs 'should have been training'.
People have been trying to predict the future for a long time, and the future keeps surprising us. In the 1950's it was widely predicted that by the 21st century we would all …be travelling in flying cars, which has not happened and is not likely to happen. No one predicted the computer revolution which makes possible this very web-site. There is no way to know what kind of technology will change our lives in the future or how our lives will change. It will almost certainly turn out to be a huge surprise. As for what India should do, I think the first requirement is population planning. I foresee terrible water shortages.

Facts About India India is a country of continental proportions and rich cultural heritage. The civilizational history of India goes back to more than 5000 years. In ancient t…imes India was considered as one of the leading lights of the world and its glory was spread far and wide all across the corners of the earth. Throughout its history, India has evolved and reinvented herself . India is the birthplace and cradle of four popular religions of the world, namely, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. The contributions and achievements of Indians in the fields of science & technology, architecture, and culture is widely acknowledged. We have collected a number of interesting facts about India. These include the facts about geographical diversity of India, history of India, achievements of India as a nation and achievements of Indian people in the sphere of science & technology, sports, adventure etc. A New Frontier The tradition of science and technology (S&T) in India is over 5,000 years old. A renaissance was witnessed in the first half of the 20th century. The S&T infrastructure has grown up from about Rs. 10 million at the time of independence in 1947 to Rs. 30 billion. Significant achievements have been made in the areas of nuclear and space science, electronics and defence. The government is committed to making S&T an integral part of the socio-economic development of the country. India has the third largest scientific and technical manpower in the world; 162 universities award 4,000 doctorates and 35,000 postgraduate degrees and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research runs 40 research laboratories that have made some significant achievements. In the field of Missile Launch Technology, India is among the top five nations of the world. Science and technology, however, is used as an effective instrument for growth and change. It is being brought into the mainstream of economic planning in the sectors of agriculture, industry and services. The country's resources are used to derive the maximum output for the benefit of society and improvement in the quality of life. About 85 per cent of the funds for S&T come directly or indirectly from the Government. The S&T infrastructure in the country accounts for more than one per cent of the GNP. S&T in India is entering a new frontier. Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research is a multi-disciplinary setup comprising thirty eight laboratories and about fifty outreach centers spread throughout the country carrying out fundamental and applied R&D in practically all areas of science technology ranging from genomics to special glasses, aeronautics to oceanography research, polymers to proteins. CSIR 's expertise and experience is embodied in about 5000 active scientists and technologists, recognized nationally and internationally, who are supported by over 10,000 scientific and technical personnel, working in an impressive infrastructure built up over the years with a present day cost of over US$1 billion. Over the years CSIR has developed over 3,000 technologies and licensed 1,500 of them to about 6,000 clients. The annual industrial production based on CSIR techniques and technologies are estimated at around $1.5 billion. In 2002,CSIR won 145 US patents and topped the Patent Cooperation Treaty listing of the top 50 entities in the developing world. Annually, CSIR files around 650 patents abroad and ranks amongst the top three entities from all developing countries in PCT patent applications. It has bilateral S&T collaborations with 30 foreign S&T Agencies. Oceanography The Department of Ocean Development formulates and implements programmes in ocean science and technology with long term scientific, technological, economic and geo- political benefits. It also formulates and coordinates scientific and technological projects for exploration and exploitation of marine living and non-living resources; and protection, preservation and conservation of its environment. While the Department of Ocean Development is directing its efforts towards the development and use of the ocean science and technology for national development, its programmes cover a wide spectrum of activities, including Polar (Antarctic) Science and Antarctic Expeditions that are launched regularly to carry out research in thrust areas of polar science. Atomic Energy The prime objective of India's nuclear energy programme is the development and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes such as power generation, applications in agriculture, medicine, industry, research and other areas. India is today recognized as one of the most advanced countries in nuclear technology including production of source materials. The country is self-reliant and has mastered the expertise covering the complete nuclear cycle from exploration and mining to power generation and waste management. Accelerators and research and power reactors are now designed and built indigenously. The sophisticated variable energy cyclotron at Kolkata and a medium-energy heavy ion accelerator 'pelletron' set up recently at Mumbai are national research facilities in the frontier areas of science. As part of its programme of peaceful uses of atomic energy, India has also embarked on a programme of nuclear power generation. Currently eight nuclear stations are producing eight billion kilowatt of electricity. Four more nuclear power stations are planned. The new nuclear reactors are designed in India. The peaceful nuclear programme also includes producing radioisotopes for use in agriculture, medicine, industry and research. Space The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), under the Department of Space (DOS), is responsible for research, development and operationalisation of space systems in the areas of satellite communications, remote sensing for resource survey, environmental monitoring, meteorological services, etc. DOS is also the nodal agency for the Physical Research Laboratory, which conducts research in the areas of space science, and the National Remote Sensing Agency, which deploys modern remote-sensing techniques for natural resource surveys and provides operational services to user agencies. India is the only Third World Country to develop its own remote-sensing satellite. India joined a select group of six nations on October 15, 1994, when the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) successfully accomplished its mission of placing the 800 Kg remote sensing satellite, IRS-P2, in the intended orbit. Earlier in May, the fourth developmental flight of the Augmented Satellite Launch Vehicle (ASLV) achieved its mission by placing the 113 Kg SROSS-C2 scientific satellite in a near-earth orbit. India is well on its way to developing a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) capable of putting 2000 Kg satellites into space. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is currently trying to develop an indigenous cryogenic engine for GSLV. A GSLV model has already been tested in wind tunnel. The INSAT series of satellite launched earlier are performing well and provide vital services for telecommunications, television, meteorology, disaster warning and distress detection. The latest INSAT series include new features like Ku-band transponders and mobile satellite services transponders. The remote-sensing satellites, launched in 1988 and 1991, have already become the mainstay of the natural resource management system of the country. The projected launch of advanced remote sensing satellites will not only enhance the scope of their application, but will also offer commercial service to other countries. The Indian achievement in the application of space-based remote sensing technology has led a US company to enter into an agreement for marketing the data from Indian satellites globally. India's progress in space technology has attracted worldwide attention and demand, with leasing agreements for marketing of IRS data and supply of space hardware and services. India also believes in co-operation in space with agencies all over the world. A high-level UN team selected India for setting up a UN Centre for Space Science and Technology Education. India is on the threshold of achieving self-reliance in the launch capability. It will be a befitting tribute to the father of the Indian space programme, Dr. Vikaram Sarabhai, whose 80th birth anniversary was observed in August 1996. Electronics The Department of Electronics plays the promotional role for the development and use of electronics for socio-economic development. Many initiatives have been taken for a balanced growth of the electronics industry. The basic thrust has been towards a general rationalization of the licensing policy with an emphasis on promotion rather than regulation, besides achieving economy of scale with up-to-date technology. A multi-pronged approach has been evolved for result-oriented R&D with special emphasis on microelectronics, telematics, and high-performance computing and software development. Application of electronics in areas such as agriculture, health and service sectors has also been receiving special attention. For upgrading the quality of indigenously manufactured products, a series of test and development centers and regional laboratories have been set up. These centers for electronic design and technology help small and medium electronics units. A number of R&D projects have been initiated to meet the growing requirements of the industry. Oceanography India has a coastline of more than 7,600 km and 1,250 islands, with its Exclusive Economic Zone covering over 2 million sq. km and continental shelf extending up to 350 nautical miles. The Department of Ocean Development was established in 1981 to ensure optimum utilisation of living resources, exploitation of non-living resources such as hydrocarbons and minerals, and to harness ocean energy. Two research vessels, ORV Sagar Kanya and FROV Sagar Sampada, are assessing and evaluating the resource potential. Survey and exploration efforts have been directed to assess seabed topography, and concentration and quality of mineral nodules. In August 1987, India was allotted a mine site of 150,000 sq. km in the central Indian Ocean for further exploration and development of resources. India is the only developing country to have qualified for Pioneer Status by the UN Conference on the Law of the Sea in 1982, and it is the first country in the world to have secured registration of a mine site. India has sent 13 scientific research expeditions to Antarctica since 1981, and has established a permanently manned base, Dakshin Gangotri. A second permanent station, an entirely indigenous effort, was completed by the eighth expedition. The objective is to study the ozone layer and other important constituents, optical aurora, geomagnetic pulsation and related phenomena. By virtue of its scientific research activities, India acquired Consultative Membership of the Antarctic Treaty in 1983 and acceded to the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources in July 1985. India is also a member of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, and has played a significant role in adopting a Minerals Regime for Antarctica in June 1988. A National Institute of Ocean Technology was set up for the development of ocean-related technologies. It is also responsible for harnessing resources of the coastal belts and islands. Biotechnology India has been the forerunner among the developing countries in promoting multi-disciplinary activities in this area, recognizing the practically unlimited possibility of their applications in increasing agricultural and industrial production, and in improving human and animal life. The nucleus of research in this area is the National Biotechnology Board, constituted in 1982. A Department of Biotechnology was created in 1986. Recently, the Biotechnology Consortium India Ltd. was set up. It will play the role of a catalyst in bridging the gap between research and development, industrial and financial institutions. Some of the new initiatives taken include developing techniques for gene mapping, conservation of biodiversity and bio-indicators research, special biotechnology programmes for the benefit of the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes and activities in the area of plantation crops. The areas which have been receiving attention are cattle herd improvement through embryo transfer technology, in vitro propagation of disease resistant plant varieties for obtaining higher yields, and development of vaccines for various diseases. Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) CSIR was established in 1942, and is today the premier institution for scientific and industrial research. It has a network of 40 laboratories, two cooperative industrial research institutions and more than 100 extension and field centers. The council's research programmes are directed towards effective utilisation of the country's natural resources and development of new processes and products for economic progress. It is now playing a leading role in the fulfillment of the technology missions evolved by the Government Science & Technology in India India is one of the leading nations in the world in terms of science and technology. India has the second largest pool of scientists and engineers in the world. In terms of technological advancements and scientific achievements India is second to none. India belongs to the select group of countries who have developed indigenous nuclear technology. India is among the few countries which have developed ballistic missiles. In the field of space science India is among the few countries which have the capability to launch GSLV satellite. India's achievements in the field of IT and software are acknowledged all over the world. Here are some interesting facts about science and technology in India. .
