The change of science and technology and impact on humans
Donna Haraway is a prominent scholar and her works have significantly contributed the study of science and technology. Her major work has sparked debate in many other fields, which is called the cyborg manifesto. She introduces her cyborg theory that tell us that humans are cyborgs, both biological beings and programmed machines. She explains the definition of a cyborg which is a cybernetic organism, a hybrid of machine and organism. Science and technology has both advanced and changed dramatically over time. Technology can radically change what humans are capable of achieving which increases human control, so while humans and technology can both ultimately change cultures and ways of life, the two will continue to function together. I chose this topic because I strongly believe in what Donna Haraway has to say about humans and cyborgs and the similarities between each other. I have begun reading information about how has science and technology changed what it means to be human and became very interest and committed into answering the question with the precise, scholar articles that I will be gathering in order to complete this research paper. I tend to approach this topic by heading towards the idea of cultural theory between the history of communications and control in the human machine and also the concept of the cyborg. I tend to speak also about the reinvention of nature, and the relationship of ideas and humanness and machines and the breakdown of boundaries between human and animal, animal-human and machine.

...CHEM 321 Experiment 1 Basics Review and Calibration of Volumetric Glassware There are three types of containers used in lab to contain or deliver liquids: volumetric, ordinary, and disposable glassware. Volumetric glassware are containers that have been calibrated at a specific temperature to deliver or contain VERY PRECISE amounts of liquid. Examples of volumetric glassware that we will use include burets, pipets, and volumetric flasks. Ordinary glassware has less precise volume calibrations and are used whenever the volumes do not have to be measured as accurately. Examples include beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks, and graduated cylinders. Disposable glassware (or plastic ware) is used to transfer or hold liquids temporarily and may not contain any volume markings. Examples include medicine droppers and disposable pipets. In this experiment you will be exposed to a variety of important concepts related to quantitative experimentation, including the proper use of glassware, analytical balances, and statistics. You will calibrate a volumetric pipet or flask, that is, you will experimentally determine what volume a pipet or flask really delivers. You will also calibrate a beaker or Erlenmeyer flask and a 50 mL buret. You will use these calibrated values throughout the remainder of the quarter. Construct a table at the front of your laboratory notebook to record calibration values or tape in the calibration tables from Chapter 2 of Harris’ 7th edition. How to read the level of......

...still suffers in comparison to arch- rival GE, whose shares have had a total return of 423% over the past 10 years, versus 273% for the German company. Von Pierer himself has admitted that he wasn’t always able to push change as fast as he would have liked. It’s not just a question of cutting costs. “In the innovation game, productivity and R&D matter more than cost structure,” says William M. Castell, CEO of GE Healthcare. Siemens boasts that its engineers and scientists generate more than 8,000 inventions a year, but it needs to do more to turn those innovations into commercial products. Siemens was a leader in introducing mobile-phone handsets with color screens and built-in MP3 music players, for example, but wasn’t able to translate its tech edge into market strength. Can Kleinfeld succeed? He doubtless has the drive. Kleinfeld’s father, a shipyard laborer who became an engineer by studying nights, died when the boy was 10. That was a “brutal” experience, Kleinfeld says, but the hardship that followed forged a determination to succeed. An only child, he stocked grocery shelves at age 12 and has held a job ever since. After studying business at Georg August University in Göttingen, Kleinfeld put in stints at a Nuremberg market research firm and at drugmaker Ciba-Geigy before joining Siemens’s corporate sales and marketing department in 1987. The new Siemens chief was a multitasker before anyone used the term. Many of his generation milk Germany’s free university system for......

Science and Technology in the Renaissance - Texts and works that were lost at one point were now refound - European scholars were now studying those texts that got translated into Arabic during the dark ages - The works of Plato etc become popular, not so much Aristotle anymore - “rebirth”; interest in newly recovered classical texts – humanists - travel, adventure and navigation - increased use of military technology results requires lots of money: increased taxation, wealth - leads to formation of new nation-states that can afford to engage in such enterprises (i.e. France emerges as state in 15th century) - costs associated with producing technologies (i.e. gunpowder), building and maintaining armies - many texts recovered after fall of Constantinople to Turkish army in 1453; transferred to Italy and retranslated - Catholic church challenged with Protestant Reformation; increased role of patronage and royal courts - Higher status for role of engineer - change in values: knowledge for wealth, power and status over standard theological considerations and attaining salvation turning point in the story of technology - changes in attitudes toward natural philosophy and technical arts, and change in relationship between science and technology - natural philosophers: justify search for knowledge on utilitarian and not just theological reasoning; this signals a changing relationship between......

Just by what I have seen and heard from various producers of cell phones I do believe that the cell phone tech is going to be in the field of a wearable devices the new (in the last few years ) watches are just the start. In the 50’s Dick Tracy had a watch that the new watches mimic so what is next will it implants or projectable it is hard to tell but in my thoughts it will be in the realm of a wearable and possibly a wearable projection device. Articale #1 Cast your mind back to late 2008, when the first Android-powered handset saw the light of day. Obama won his first Presidential election, Apple launched its App Store (the iPhone had appeared the year before), Google announced its own Chrome browser and we got our first look at the company's new mobile OS on the T-Mobile G1. The Android of 2013 is a world away from that 2008 version, where the Android Market was in its infancy, there were no native video playback capabilities and the G1 had no multi-touch support. But Google is going to have to keep innovating and improving its mobile OS to keep the lion's share of the smartphone market. We've taken a peek into the future to consider what Android might look like in the year 2020. With new Android monikers now appearing about......

...non-living material. Many people believed this because they had observed worms and flies apparently springing forth from lifeless material like decaying meat or fruit. In 1859, the great scientist Louis Pasteur proved the absurdity of spontaneous generation. He demonstrated when the decaying material was insulated from flies and insects, no larva ever appeared. Now more than ever, modern science confirms that life is extremely complex and can only arise from pre-existing life. This is why the best efforts of evolution scientists have not been able to produce a single cell of life even in the controlled environments of expensive high-tech laboratories. Now with the marvels of 21st-century microscopes, scientists understand that even the simplest and smallest organism is, in effect, a virtual factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, far more complicated than the International Space Station. In fact, each microscopic cell is as functionally complex as a small city at rush hour! Now as we delve deeper into the cellular world, science reveals a virtual Lilliputian world of enormous complexity that has pushed the theory of evolution to a breaking point. It is likely that if Charles Darwin was alive today and could see a single cell magnified 50,000 times through electron micrographs, he would utterly renounce his theory as foolishness. Because it is increasingly obvious there is no scientific explanation for the......

...playing with tech gadgets, and 28 percent said between two- and three hours. Moreover, the study found that 38 percent of two- to five-year-olds own an Android tablet, and 32 percent own an iPad; almost a third (32 percent) of these kids also have a mobile phone. The reason behind all this gadget use: over a third of parents (35 percent) said they use tech gadgets to entertain their children because they are convenient, and nearly a quarter (23 percent) because they want their children to be tech-savvy. A 2015 survey of 1,000 British mothers of children aged 2 to 12 found that 85 percent of mums admit to using technology to keep the kids occupied while they get on with other activities. The survey pointed to children spending on average around 17 hours a week in front of a screen – almost double the 8.8 weekly hours spent playing outside. Wanting our children to tech-savvy is understandable, and the need to keep them entertained will also make sense to many a parent. But we must also weigh up the risks associated with children having too much screen time. In his lecture ‘Managing Screen Time and Screen Dependency’ Dr Aric Sigman argues that “whether it’s Facebook, the internet or computer games, screen time is no longer merely a cultural issue about how children spend their leisure time, nor is it confined to concern over the educational value or inappropriate content – it’s a medical issue”. Sigman is concerned less with a child’s ICT or Computer Science study or......

...feel that what they are buying is directed to those who demand the best. So when critics argue that Apple is very controlling over their products and who can develop software’s for them or sell them, you can be sure that, that is exactly how CEO Steve Jobs wants it to be. It’s very clear how this technological mogul has got to where it is, by not compromising or losing focus on what their mission as a company is. Nicholas Bonsack reports, “In a recent Consumer Reports survey focusing on four aspects of customer service for computers — problem solved, phone wait time, and the quality of phone and online support staffs — Consumer Reports subscribers gave Apple the highest marks among the top computer vendors for both laptop and desktop tech support. Apple was the only company to earn top scores in all four categories”(2). Aside from Apple striving to be the most innovative computer and electronic device manufacturer, they also out do themselves when it comes to customer service, which we all wish was true for most of the companies out there. You can say that Apple has found a secret recipe for success, combining innovation, quality, style and an outstanding after sale service. Now it’s not so hard to figure out what all the hype is about. They are profoundly dedicated to solving our problems as consumers, while giving us beautifully simple devices that do what we need them to do and then some. By not being interested in pleasing absolutely everyone, they give their......

...While videoconferencing technology was initially used primarily within internal corporate communication networks, one of the first community service usages of the technology started in 1992 through a unique partnership with PictureTel and IBM Corporations which at the time were promoting a jointly developed desktop based videoconferencing product known as the PCS/1. Over the next 15 years, Project DIANE (Diversified Information and Assistance Network) grew to utilize a variety of videoconferencing platforms to create a multistate cooperative public service and distance education network consisting of several hundred schools, neighborhood centers, libraries, science museums, zoos and parks, public assistance centers, and other community oriented organizations. In the 2000s, videotelephony was popularized via free Internet services such as Skype and iChat, web plugins and on-line telecommunication programs which promoted low cost, albeit low-quality, videoconferencing to virtually every location with an Internet connection. In May 2005, the first high definition video conferencing systems, produced by LifeSize Communications, were displayed at the Interop trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, able to provide 30 frames per second at a 1280 by 720 display resolution.[9][10] Polycom introduced its first high definition video conferencing system to the market in 2006.
