How Technology Affects Us
Did you ever wonder where we’d do without technology? Imagine how your life will be as we did not have networked computers, smartphone’s, electricity, and books (eBooks and paper-based). It is extremely difficult to consider our lives without one. What exactly is technology anyhow? How has it changed our society? Did it change the world to the better or worse?
– As with the lever, scholars credit Archimedes with the earliest theoretical progression of the pulley
– According to Plutarch, a Greek historian, Archimedes claimed that he could move the planet if he had enough pulleys, a very similar statement to his proposal about moving the Earth using a lever
– The story continues when King Hieron of Syracuse asks Archimedes to maneuver a substantial ship in Hieron’s navy
– On the appointed day, Archimedes create his system of pulleys, the King loaded the ship full of passengers and cargo, after which Archimedes sat coming from a distance and pulled the rope
– Plutarch explains the shipped moved “as smoothly and evenly just as if she had held it’s place in the sea

To the ancients, this was a mere novelty, currently, this is basic science. To explain it crudely, pulleys distribute weight through different segments of rope to produce lifting heavy objects easier. Let’s say one has a substantial object he wishes to lift. He reaches down and attempts to lift it regarding his own strength, but he cannot do it. To make this easier, he attaches a pulley for the large load. Then he attaches a rope to the ceiling and pulls that rope from the pulley. Next, he lifts on the rope, and lastly lifts the item. One can make this happen for the reason that rope for the ceiling supplies half the force had to lift the item while one applies one other half. – As a recreation, people could also find better technology useful when you are their fish finding activities
– Perhaps a tool just like a Simrad echo sounder or sonar might help them catch more
– On the other hand, by using a marine GPS system offers convenience in navigation
– When arranging a route or track towards a specific destination, an operator can program the machine and enable auto-guide function
If we treat each as equals, share advancements in technology, the global majority will no longer race to win, but race to help you those in need through technological transfers, then the worldwide audience will manage to benefit. Technology is not can be used only through the strong minority. Technology just isn’t intended for the gifted few, but it is intended for the whole.
