- it technology is good or bad
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 its self is good or bad, but rather how we as humans u...

- Software Development Process
A software development process describes an approach to building, deploying and maintaining software. There are several models of this process, which describe approaches to the elements of division in the process of software development. Huge amount of organizations, which develop the software, use the different methodologies of producing. The process of searching of the repetitive and expectable processes, which increase the productiveness and quality of the products, have been lasting duri...

- TREATMENT OF OIL CONTAMINATED SOILS IN THE NIGER DELTA USING MOBILE THERMAL DESORPTION SYSTEMS
THE OIL AND GAS PRODUCING ACTIVITIES IN THE NIGER DELTA FREQUENTLY RESULT IN SPILLS OF LARGE QUANTITIES OF CRUDE OIL IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
THESE SPILLS TEND TO RAPIDLY SPREAD DUE TO THE CLIMATE AND THE POROUS NATURE OF THE SOIL IN THE REGION. A NUMBER OF SPILL SITES EXIST WHICH ARE OVER 1 SQUARE KILOMETER IN AREA AND SEVERAL YEARS OLD.
CURRENT TREATMENT OF SUCH SPILLS IS USUALLY A COMBINATION OF MOP-UP AND OPEN BURNING. THIS LEAVES A SCORCHED AREA FROM WHICH OIL OOZES OUT DURING THE HOT DAYTIME ...

- Wind Energy
For many centuries wind has been used as a reliable source of energy. It is
clean and inexhaustible. Wind is used to make the job of a human simpliar. It is
used for grinding grain, pumping water, and to enable sail boats to move. Though
often the amount of wind power varies depending on the climate of an area.
Although wind power is only used in selected areas the recent interest in fuel
conservation has sparked the development of windfarms. In the 1980...
Autism is a developmental disability of the brain, much like dyslexia or attention deficit disorder. Autism is not a form of mental retardation, and though many autistic people act like they are retarded, but a lot of times they are very intelligent. The Autism society of America quotes "autism...occurs in approximately 15 of every 10,000 individuals and nearly 400,000 people in the U.S. today have some form of autism."
The sympots of autism may vary from person to person. Auti...
There are many kinds of networks, however this paper will be about networking computers. As we move further and further into the paperless society, the need for people to be connected and able to exchange data just as fast as they could by handing a paper to someone increases. This can be accomplished by having a group of computers connected by a network, so that as soon as data is entered into one computer, it can be immediately accessed by someone else on a connected comput...
- Air Resistance, Tyres And Friction
Air Resistance, Tyres and Friction
Dragsters use a combination of large wide tyres or the rear and small narrow tyres on the front this combination is used for the following reasons:
The front wheels:
The front wheels are very narrow. This is so a minimum of air resistance or drag affects the dragster with lower drag better acceleration an in turn a better top speed can be achieved all leading to a better pass (race time).
Now lets try to understand the concept of air resista...
- The Ediacaran Fauna
The Ediacaran Fauna
Up until 1947, it was believed that the Cambrian Explosion marked the first true abundance of multicellular life. However, this was discovered to be untrue after Sir Douglas Mawson and R.C. Sprigg mistakenly came across numerous "fossil jellyfish" in the Ediacara Hills while observing what was originally believed to be sandstones belonging to the lowest strata of the Cambrian. At first, these finding were dismissed as "fortuitous inorganic markings."(AAS Biographica...
