In the 1960’s they didn 't have very good communication. We have more advanced technologies such as cell phones and computers with internet so we can interact much better with the people around us. In the text in stats “People can keep in touch and meet and meet new people easier than 50 years ago. Now we have technology where we can do almost anything with the touch of a few buttons. In the 1960’s there there was not much technology.
Thanks to its flash storage which uses solid state technology, which means there are no moving parts. Without any moving mechanical parts, flash storage is more reliable, durable and quiet than traditional hard drives. And, it takes up much less space than a traditional hard drive too. That creates room
Because, nowadays, e-readers are developed enough, her article could play an important role in making e-readers a significant tool for education. Moreover, the author is motivated to write the article as the number of the articles which discuss the impact of e-reader on reading practice of children is low. In addition to choosing the right time, Larson shows credibility in her article because of her experience as an instructor in the field of learning technologies. Furthermore, the case study, which is done by the author, makes the information believable. Also, the author is fair and respectful by not attacking people who read printed books to show the pros of e-reader.
I believe that life in the 1960’s was much better because there were very little violence, better fashion and love and happiness. In the 1960’s, compared to today’s society, there were very little violence. In the text it states, “kids could walk to school alone without being kidnapped like today, and could unite and voice their opinions” (Winn). This explains and reveals that violence is in the headlines of the newspapers daily.
It has come very clear to me that our generation that is very accustomed to using the internet are maybe just a little lazier than the generation who did not have computers and other technologies. For instance, I myself find it much easier to go search something I do not know rather than looking it up in a book, because it is much quicker and simpler. If it was not for the internet some discoveries would have never been found, some people would not have made billions and some may even learn to read out of book without getting
The natural gas has many advantages. It is less harmful than oil or coal. It causes less damage to the environment compared to oil and coal. It has less carbon emission because it is made of methane gas. It has carbon dioxide emission 45% less than conventional fuel and less than oil by 30%.
You have to keep track of who checked out which book, and when the due date is. I learned that it never hurts to have everything on paper copy and not just on the computer. The card catalog may not be all that popular, but it never hurts to have one in any library. The card catalog helps provide the students with the information to find books on their own. They gather the knowledge and knowhow about how a library organizes books.
The modern version of the book I chose for this assignment, Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales and The Raven, was more easily accessible than the older copy. After locating it in McKeldin, I noticed that it has had a hard life as a library book. While the cover is cloth, the corners have been smashed and the boards are loose, but not yet in any danger of detaching. The green cover is plain without being ugly. The book is physically larger than can be comfortably held in the hand for long periods of time and would, therefore, be best read at a desk or while seated.
In the reading “Computers and the Pursuit of Happiness” by David Gelender speaks about the new age and how this generation is adapting to the new computing needs for humans. The question that I choose to focus on in Gelenders reading is “Has an old age ended, and are we, thanks to computers and the internet, living in a new one?”. The answer that is quite simple due to natural and biological means. There is no way that the old age had ended, sure we have more information, but we still have to rely on our body to do many functions for us.
During the Vietnam War, the highest ever proportion of African Americans served in the armed forces, an about turn from the previous attitude that they were unfit for combat. About 11% of the American population was African American at the time, while at the height of the war, about 12% of the troops were black. Many blacks enlisted because of few job opportunities at home, as was the case for whites as well in states with low employment opportunities. In addition, many African Americans did not plan on attending college in comparison to whites at the time and could not get a college deferment. As the civil rights movement wore on, racial violence that swept the country in the late 1960s spread to the military, with race riots on military bases and ships.
