We live in a highly sophisticated Earth where everything is almost achievable. There would probably have been no changes between Earths of today also that of three centuries ago if necessity also serendipitous discoveries had not driven men to achieve great things. Science and technology have had huge positive effects on every society. Earth today has gone digital, even human thought. Our Earth has been reduced to a global village also is better for it.
Benefits of science and technology far outweigh every perceived shortcoming. Some of biggest effects of technology are in area of communication; through internet also mobile phones. There is advancement of communication also expansions of economic commerce. Today we hear of information also communication technology (ICT). Any institution worth its name must have it in place to be really outstanding. Information technology has become boosted in today's generation; from field of communication, business, and education also down to entertainment industry. Through information technology, work performances are boosted with less effort also greater productivity by using various operations. Without computers or internet, it will be difficult for people all over Earth to get their questions answered. One may use internet to locate a wealth of information with which to answer an essay question that may have been assigned at school, communicate with people, conduct transactions, access news, buy also advertise goods. List is endless.
Advancement of Science and technology allow mass communication today so that we not only have television, radio also newspaper, but even mobile phones which renders a multipurpose service; from long distance calls, listening to radio also music, playing games, taking pictures, recording voice also video also browsing internet. Benefits we obtain as a result of services from ICT have become widespread in our generation today. It improves productive level of individuals also workers because People's knowledge of life beyond area they lived in is now unlimited. This idea of mass communication also profoundly affects politics as leaders now have many ways they talk directly to the people. Apart from going on air to use radio or television, politicians resort to social media for some of their political comments also campaign. Information about protests also revolutions are being circulated online, especially through social media. This has caused political upheavals also resulted in change of government in most nations today.
Furthermore, current global issues are much more accessible to public. Communication has been brought also to next level because one can find new ways to be able to communicate with loved ones at home.
Science and technology expand society's knowledge. Science helps humans gain increased understanding of how Earth works, while technology helps scientists make these discoveries. Learning has maximized because of different media that are being developed which are all interactive also which bring learning experiences to next level. Businesses have grown also expanded because of breakthroughs in advertising.
Modern technology has changed way many companies produce their goods also handle their business. Idea also use of video also web conferencing, for instance, has helped companies remove geographical barriers also given them opportunity to reach out to employees also clients throughout Earth. In today's economy, it has helped companies reduce cost also inconveniences of travelling, allowing them to meet as often as they could like without having to worry about finding budget to settle it. Modern technology helps companies reduce their carbon footprint also become green due to fact that almost anything can be done from a computer.
There have been advances in medical care through development of science and technology. Advances in medical technology have contributed immensely in extending life span of people. People with disabilities or health problems are now more also more able to live closer to normal lives. This is because science contributes to developing medications to enhance health as well as technology such as mobile chairs also even electronics that monitor current body levels. Most devices used by physically challenged people are customized also user friendly.
Science and technology increase road safety. Nowadays, law enforcement officers use Laser technology to detect when automobiles are exceeding speed limits. Technology has led to development of modern machines such as cars also motorcycles which allow us to be mobile also travel freely also airplanes which travel at a supersonic speed.
Another machine, air- conditioner, provides cool comfort, especially during hot weather. In offices where dress codes exist, people can afford to wear suits without being worried about weather. It guarantees convenience even when climate says otherwise.
Moreover, present day factories have modern facilities like machines also soft ware that facilitate production. These machines work with greater speed also perfection incomparable with human skills. These machines have enabled markets to have surplus products all over Earth. For soft ware, they make it possible for machines to be programmed, for production to be regulated, to monitor progress being recorded also so on.
Modern technology indeed has been great. For third World nations, however, it has been challenging, especially area of production. Only consuming and not been able to manufacture does not favour any nation when it comes to balance of trade. Most sensitive parts of technology are theoretical or conceptual parts also technical parts. These are backbone of technological development anywhere in Earth. Without ideas, there will not be technology. Third Earth counties need to go back to basics, that is, to primitive. There must be meeting ground for tradition also modern technological invention. Third Earth nations engage in import substitution strategy where they import half finished goods also complete tail end of production process domestically. Third Earth nations started wrongly. They started with climbing ladder from top which is very wrong also difficult. They thought that being able to purchase also operate modern technological products qualifies for advancement in science also technological development. This makes third Earth nations to be a dependent system because working in the factories are routine work also this inevitably links to issue of idea of technology transfer. They should seek for technological transfer, but problem is that no nation is ready to transfer her hard earned technological knowledge to any other nation for some certain reasons which drive nations into competition; Earth politics also economic prowess. That is struggle to lead or dominate other nations technologically, economically also politically. Be first to invent new gadgets also latest electronics including those used in modern warfare, use other nations as market for finished goods also to have a strong voice also be able to influence other nations. They should consider embarking on technological espionage so as to acquire rudiments for technological development if they must liberate themselves from shackles of technological domination.
In conclusion, it's not until third Earth nation begin to put embargo on importation of certain electronics also mechanical goods that necessity to be creative would replace habit of consuming foreign products. Nations like Thailand, Burma, Brazil also South Africa also so on, should be emulated. These nations experienced colonialism yet they did not allow it to overwhelm their creative prowess. Industry also determination saw them emerge as economic giants in Earth today. Third Earth nations should emulate them by carrying out proper feasibility studies to ascertain which technology will suit their nation; giving more financial boost to this area, training people to become experts; motivating also encouraging individuals who are naturally endowed also technologically inclined to display their bests of talents. These measures if strictly adhered to will go a long way to help advancement of these nations in area of science and technology. If these nations must achieve greatness before next decade, they have to make conscious also unrelenting efforts. Time starts now! More they delay, more backward they become.
