Laptop - 857 words
It was about three months ago when I had my graduation party. All of my relatives were there from my grandma to my cousins-in-law to congratulate my friends and I. When my father finally showed up, I was very happy to see him, but not as happy as I was once he gave me my present. It was the thing that about ninety percent of college students own and need, a new computer. It was not just any old computer however, it was a laptop. It also had just about every option that you could possibly think of included. I could do everything from e-mail my friends, to watch DVD movies. This laptop has been so essential to me because it saves me both money and time, two things a college student needs a lot ...

What do we usually think of when we hear the word computer? Well most of us seem to fret or run away when we hear that word but why? The computer is one of the best inventions that anyone has ever come up with, why our whole world is practically run by them. A computer is something that no one should take for granted or kicks to the curb just because one does not take the time to become computer literate. In the following paragraphs I will explain why it is so important to have computers in an educational facility than just a plain old typewriter. The personal computer today has dominated our culture so that the once ubiquitous typewriter has been rendered practically silent. The importance ...

Computers In Education - 1,240 words
Over the past ten years billions of dollars have been spent on computers for our nations schools. The goal was to improve and update our educational system but there is very little evidence of change through the years and taxpayers that have been paying for these upgrades in the schools want to know where the payoff is. A small Belridge school district in Mckittrick, California was proud to be the first and only in the state to provide every student with two Apple IIg computers, one for school and one for home. It reshaped its curriculum to use computers in all subject areas and they thought it was working well. The parents were shocked to hear when the annual standardized test scores came i ...

Fatal Machines - 809 words
Have you noticed how careless people can be when they are behind the wheel of an automobile? Cars are dangerous machines which require patient drivers. Over the years technology has made cars safer. Many people think they are indestructible when theyre behind the wheel. They figure the car wouldnt be on the road if it werent safe. Todays drivers are used to hopping in their car and being able to drive from point A to point B, but now we have traffic, which many drivers cant deal with.

Community College Students Create A Selfimage In Their Life - 1,446 words
Community College Students Create A Self-Image In Their Life Swimming with the current is much easier than swimming against the current. If people are not able to follow the trend, they will not belong to this time anymore. Most of the time each of us is a member of a group, sometimes a member of several groups, and at different times of different groups (Katona 55). Moreover, their feeling, thinking, and acting will be profoundly influenced when they are in a powerful group. Because the people surrounding them are chasing the fluctuating trend, they are forced to improve their standards of life in order to fit in with this complicated society. Community college students like shopping becaus ...

Internet - 1,259 words
This is a nice invention. And considering the www alone, the main thing is that it is flashy, colorful, icons are blinking and it can talk to you. Besides that, it is fast and easy, of course. It claims to be a powerful tool for exchanging and gathering information which will change the world in the near future. And probably it will. The enthusiastic prophets of this tool stress that the amount of information available on the web is already immense and quickly growing, and access is getting cheaper, faster and more widely available (financially and mentally) to all. And I'm asking: So what? First of all, too much information means no information. If I read one newspaper I can learn something ...

A Breif History Of Pracy - 1,025 words
Piracy is usually determined as a seizure of property (ship, airplane or software) that holds no commission from the owner (Piracy 1). It is mostly linked to the dirty, bearded men that sailed the seven seas and robed merchant ships or ships that carried a valuable cargo. This however, was not the case in the late eighties and is definitely not the case today in the nineties. Now software pirates copy software without the permission of the company for their own personal benefits. Since piracy interrupts trade between nations it has been considered to be an offense against international law (Piracy 1). While the pirates in the medieval age roamed for plunder on the high seas, pirate radio and ...

Confucius Vs Lao Tse - 1,370 words
Central Daily Newspaper-- May 1, 2000 Unfortunately, problems have arose at Central High, right here in Centralville, Nebraska. In the last 5 years, the situation at Central High has been on a steady decline from the low end of average to downright terrible. Not only are students being affected by this turn-around, but administrators, teachers, and parents are angry and in need of change for the better. The fact is, it is May and this year only 50 percent of seniors have met requirements to graduate. The number of seniors who are actually going to 4 year colleges lies in the 20 percent range. After the horrible attempt at the musical Annie and the yet to win a game winter sports season, an e ...

Issuing Laptops - 856 words
Anyone can take a look at the world today and see that computers have a major role in keeping everything in order. Some people find it hard to go just one day without being able to use their computer. I sometimes find myself to be one of these people. One way that I propose to help introduce young adults into this computer age is to have colleges issue laptops to entering students. With the United States being one of the most technologically advanced nations in the world, there is no reason why colleges should not be issuing laptops to entering students. The problem with most young adults today is that they are not as computer literate as they should be. Getting more students involved with c ...

Introducing The Sharp Minds - 1,685 words
In our heroes, we find something we that admire, or wish we had, in ourselves. It is for this reason that it is easy to understand how popular action heroes can and almost must, stand as a collective symbol of how we as a people want to be perceived. If the collective values of the eighties were symbolized by the hard body, as Susan Jeffords asserts in her 1994 article, Hard Bodies: Hollywood in the Reagan Era, then surely the nineties can be represented by the sharp mind. The Hollywood heroes of the Reagan era, such as Bruce Willis in Die Hard, overcame opposition through superior strength and stamina, a direct result of their hard bodies. On the contrary, today we see our Hollywood heroes ...

Kkkk - 1,724 words
Will the books as we know them cease to exist? In the future, will children know what books are? Plain books in paper. Will they remember them? Many think not, because the computer is taking slowly over our lives. Soon every thing will be connected to one big network they say. Personally I have doubts. Yes, the computer is becoming more and more part of our everyday life, but we will not stop printing books. I dont think anybody prefers to read a novel on a computer screen. No, to have a solid book between your hands is still the best. Schools for instance, will they stop buying books for educational usage? Will they become dependent on the Internet, CD-ROM technology, and other forms of inf ...

The Global Positioning System (GPS), a system of 24 satellites circling the Earth, is a fairly new technology. As with a lot of new technologies there are innumerable advantages and uses but there is also a downside to our increasing reliance on this system. These days GPS is finding its way into cars, boats, planes, construction equipment, movie making gear, farm machinery, even laptop computers. It works by using satellites as reference points to calculate a position somewhere on the earth - a position accurate to a matter of meters. In fact, with advanced forms of GPS you can make measurements to better than a centimeter! We have begun to give every square meter on the planet a unique add ...
