How Technology Effects Modern America - US Wage Trends
The microeconomic picture of the U.S. has changed immensely since 1973, and the trends are proving to be consistently downward for the nation's high school graduates and high school drop-outs. "Of all the reasons given for the wage squeeze - international competition, technology, deregulation, the decline of unions and defense cuts - technology is probably the most critical.

- Aggression In Man
Aggression In Man
There are different reasons why a person may act aggressively towards other human beings. The person may act this way because of his culture or the way he was brought up in society.

Representative Gases & Properties of Gases
1. State the five assumptions of the Kinetic-Molecular Theory of gases.
a) Gases consist of large numbers of tiny particles. These particles, usually molecules or atoms, typically occupy a volume about 1000 times larger than occupied by the same number of particles in the liquid or solid state. Thus molecules of gases are much further apart than those of liquids or solids.
Most of the volume occupied by a gas is empty space. This accounts fo...
- Technology - Good Or Bad?
Technology - Good or Bad?
Heather Marie Studebaker
People very often debate whether technology is good or bad. Many people believe that technology can only cause harm to their lives and society, while many others strongly defend the technologies which have made their lives much more leisurely and enriching than it could have been several hundred years ago. In my opinion, both of these views are correct to an extent, but I also believe that what should be examined is not whether technology in i...

The Human Brain
The human being is considered to be the ultimate form of life on the earth. This is not because the human body is strong and agile.

The electronic computer has been around for over a half-century, but its ancestors have been around for 2000 years. Ho...

As computers are capable of handling large amounts of data in a very short time, they are well suited for wordprocessing. I guess that it won't be long till all the paper-archives are replaced by magnetic tapes and disk...
