People are using mobile phones and laptops and personal computers for their work as well as entertainment also. Students are using mobile phones for their study and social sites. Children's are also using mobile phones for playing games and entertainment.
All these things are making people lazy because of their comfort zone. Today many people are inviting with the help of mobile phones in many family functions and marriages. The main source of oxygen for this Atlantis would be the algae, and the predominant source of food would be fish. Most of the power would com from nuclear reactors. There would be no countries, as the U. S would be the only country which would have the economic and scientific resources to build this Atlantis, as I mentioned before there would be this lapse in technological advancement for a certain period of time as we adapt ourselves to underwater life, more over the trauma created by technology I.
No businesses were opened. This was the day they spent with family. In the last years, there have been a lot of inventions to make our life easier. But, in our local community the important things like family and friends have stayed the same. Taylor HiltabidelSpringfield Elementary Pieces of the Past and Present: A Hundred Years of ProgressiveExcellence Excellence, stability, strength, vitality, and visibility in the components that impel change throughout history — throughout the centuries.
Constant from the moment man walked the earth, the effects of these elements on the human existence, remain visible in every generation. Although a comfortable year if one were wealthy, lacked the advanced technology, exceptional equality among genders, and increased awareness of the world and its people, that the present society, in , finds increasing benefits. In , for example, the most advanced technology, the telephone, connected the coasts, and its wealthy people.
Invented by Alexander Graham Bell in , this innovation, shown initially at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, opened the lines of communication for the first time to the public; however, this invention reached a minuscule portion of the populace, due to excessive expenses.
Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, addressed equality of the genders. Throughout the 20th century and after the dawning of the 21st, the rays of communication through technological advances, such as on-line resources and e-mail, have shone the light of information and connection upon society. Through the Internet, television and the telephone, as well as innumerable other specialized devices, families and friends become more connected at an affordable cost.
Americans, through these wonderful advancements, become more tuned into feelings they experience, unlike the suppression of the past. Although the gender scales will never find balance in all areas of life: home, work, and play, the enlightened attitudes of society toward one another as individuals — woman and man — have experienced a gradual shifting of the weight — a counterbalance, much needed and appreciated, among the majority of women in the United States.
In the realm of foreign policy, as well, the manner in which the United States reacts toward countries abroad, and their difficult circumstances, has transformed over the century. In many instances, the United States has become involved in foreign conflict for the welfare of world politics and humanity.
From Vietnam, to the present, War on Terror, the United States has aided and devised numerous methods of international security. Whether feeding a starving village, or fighting in hand-to-hand combat, or dying at the hands of terrorists to expose the evils of mankind in an article, the people of The United States of America have changed and grown over the century.
In , the metamorphosis, the caterpillar of an age, was beginning to grow. Throughout the years, the cocoons of reform and revolution among technology, genders, and attitudes toward fellow members of humanity, have burst forth a new creature in — the butterfly of the future, flying into posterity with open wings — spreading its beauty in the skies of today, and for the remainder of the tomorrows. Amanda Cochran Mount Pleasant Area High Years of Progress Imagine waking up without the warm aroma of coffee brewing in the coffee maker, having to walk outside in the chilly air to use the outhouse, or even tossing and turning in your sleep because of the summer heat.
In , indoor bathrooms and air-conditioning did not exist, and all homes were heated mostly with coal. As unbelievable as this sounds, it was reality. Yet, over the past years technology has transformed dramatically and has made seem like something unimaginable.
Today, it is hard to picture living without a computer let alone surviving without a car available for your everyday use. In , owning one car was very unlikely and the owner was considered very lucky.
The average person in the rural areas of western Pennsylvania, excluding the wealthy, were left walking several miles to a streetcar stop if they wanted to be transported to the nearest large town for shopping. During this time an individual could purchase a pound of sugar for four cents, one dozen eggs for 14 cents and a pound of butter for 24 cents.
Those living in mining towns would walk to the local company store owned and operated by the coal mine companies in the area to purchase such items. Even still many families owned several farm animals to cut the costs of purchasing their food. Only one in 13 families actually owned a telephone let alone a television.
However much has changed since that time and has left us in technological luxury. Today, walking is considered exercise and the car is the most relied upon for transportation.
Yet, having one vehicle is still rare because today most families own two or more. Though people make more money today, prices seem to balance out. The year provides the world with computers small enough to carry with you and cell phones capable of calling almost anywhere. Digital cameras, palm pilots, MP3 players barely top off the list as technology advances every day. There is no longer a need for maps in a car, they too have been replaced with electronic navigators.
From to , the years flew by and so did a multitude of changes. I understand from folk tale that in a teacher would arrive at the school earlier than the students to start a fire in the fireplace or stove to provide heat to the classroom. Today our schools have thermostats that regulate our heat automatically. What a bonus to those living in We have air conditioning to cool us down in the hotter months. Imagine in the school you attended would be one room divided into three grades.
The teacher would teach all three grades, while playing the role of nurse and principle simultaneously. Today we have teachers who teach us one specific subject. We have a physical education class with a gym teacher. When we need help, we can seek the aide of a guidance counselor.
Sad to say, but years ago we did not need security guards for the school, but today it is a necessity. We today have the luxury of transportation to and from school, by riding the bus.
In you walked to school unless you were fortunate to have a horse to ride you to school. Today we are served hot lunches in a cafeteria. The children years ago walked back home to have their lunch. Imagine you probably could not bring a lunch because plastic lunch bags, paper bags, and thermal bottles had not been invented yet.
Looking back years ago, it seems that life was much harder. I am so glad that technology and innovations have made life much more comfortable and bearable. They had funny clothes back then. Like long skirts that dragged on the ground. And their hair was always in buns. And they had very, very funny hats.
They all had to live in log cabins. They had to make their own heat. And the men had to find their food. They had to buy their crops. They had to be very, very strong or else. They had to get light from candles.
They had no furnaces. They had one-room schoolhouses. They had to cook their food over a fire. They had to make their clothes out of animal fur. They had covered wagons for vehicles. They had wild animals for pets. They ha to use feathers and ink to write with. They had a different flag.
Amanda Prinkey Springfield Elementary Things have changed Back in , and now in , many things have changed. In , ladies wore dresses all the time, now hardly anyone wears dresses unless they have to for holidays, special days or if you have to, for your job.
Also, ladies wore corsets which made them look skinny, and also they wore very tight. Ladies also had hats to match their dresses or so, and the bigger the hats means how rich they were. Their dresses were very big, too. Just from ladies dresses compared to them now shows how different times have changed.
There is so much more to be compared like the prices of food, clothes and other stuff. Elizabeth PorterfieldSpringfield Elementary Life is different Life in was different than life in , by the president, because in , Franklin E. Roosevelt was the president, and now in , George W. Bush is the president. Their clothes were also different in , the girls mostly always wore dresses and skirts, now most girls even wear or like dresses and skirts.
Therefore, for the given reasons, and are very different years, from two very different worlds. In past when there is no technology introduced then the people are very polite and good natured but now-a-days because of mobile phones and technologies people are very angry and rudely behaving. Life After years Person like you, me and many others in this earth has many thoughts and wonders in our mind that what will be the living life of human being after years. During the off-season, players had to pick up a hobby to do.
