Reminiscing about the good old days when we were growing up is a memory trip well worth taking, when trying to understand the issues facing the children of today. A mere 20 years ago, children used to play outside all day, riding bikes, playing sports and building forts. Masters of imaginary games, children of the past created their own form of play that didn’t require costly equipment or parental supervision. Children of the past moved… a lot, and their sensory world was nature based and simple. In the past, family time was often spent doing chores, and children had expectations to meet on a daily basis. The dining room table was a central place where families came together to eat and talk about their day, and after dinner became the center for baking, crafts and homework.
Today’s families are different. Technology’s impact on the 21st century family is fracturing its very foundation, and causing a disintegration of core values that long ago were what held families together. Juggling work, home and community lives, parents now rely heavily on communication, information and transportation technology to make their lives faster and more efficient. Entertainment technology (TV, internet, videogames, iPods) has advanced so rapidly, that families have scarcely noticed the significant impact and changes to their family structure and lifestyles. A 2010 Kaiser Foundation study showed that elementary aged children use on average 8 hours per day of entertainment technology, 75% of these children have TV’s in their bedrooms, and 50% of North … Read more

Though some manufacturers are overtly pointing out their latest technological marvels in their running shoes ad campaigns, New Balance is somewhat more laid back. But these proudly “Made in U.S.A” running shoes offer some very advanced technology that compares to other brands.
The N-ergy technology is a very advanced cushioning and shock absorption material on the New Balance 2009 line up. It is composed of materials that do not have empty air spaces inside. This prevents it from rapidly deteriorating compared to equivalent cushioning compounds in other brands of running shoes. Located primarily on the heel of the shoe this material allows the shoes to be extremely responsive. New Balance claims that runners get a very smooth transition from the point of impact to lift.
NB Zip is responsive cushioning technology that is found on the rear half of the outer sole. It is composed of a complex plastic strut system that performs different functions depending on the stage of the foot fall. The NB Zip is divided into zones that give impact protection and pronation support from heel strike to toe off.
The Abzord Dynamic Transition System is composed of three different material layers on the New Balance running shoe sole.

Advancements in technology, valiant journeys, and important people of the Age of Exploration created an impressive step toward the modern era. Improved technologies, such as the compass, which helped sailors along their journey to reach their destination, were promoted during this age. The brave journeys by many men were incredible, like Gil Eanes’ short, but significant voyage across the Green Sea of Darkness. In the Age of Exploration, many important people decided to move beyond their ability, for example Ferdinand Magellan, who circumnavigated the Earth.
Many of the significant improvements of the technology were made during the Age of Exploration. First, the caravel’s smooth hull, lateen sail and two rudders were improved by Prince Henry’s designers for the trips that the sailors had to make. The compass, that is crucial part of any type of journey, which was used for looking at the direction one was going, was promoted throughout this age. Prince Henry’s plan for sailing needed the astrolabe, which determined latitude to prepare for their voyage. Improved maps were part of the technology’s improvements during the Age of Exploration and were used to find their destination.
Additionally, the valiant journeys of many important figures were all very astonishing. Gil Eanes’ voyage across the Green Sea of Darkness was short, but he was the captain of the first successful voyage across the ocean. The well-known journey of Columbus was an exciting journey that led to the Native Americans and discovering of America, which he did not know was America. … Read more
Do you know why it’s important to find a good mechanic or a good repair shop to repair your car? The reason: it could save you hundreds of dollars in parts and labor! When we say a “good mechanic” or a “good repair shop”, we’re referring to mechanics who are equipped with the latest technology. You don’t want to entrust your car to a shop with outdated machinery and equipment because it will take longer to arrive at a diagnosis. And the longer a mechanic takes to make a diagnosis, the larger your bill for labor!
Remember that car mechanics charge by the hour.
Car repairs can cover any one or a combination of the following (note that this is not a complete repair list).
• Air conditioning checks
• Air bag checks
• Electrical wiring
• Clutch service and repair
• Transmission repair
• Wheel Alignment
• Heating system
• Oil and lubrication
• Power windows
Much of the troubleshooting that mechanics use to diagnose a problem is facilitated by car repair technology.
Ever noticed how some lights on your panel come on when something’s wrong? In most cases, an experienced mechanic will know immediately what the problem is, but there are instances where it will take sophisticated technology to lead to an accurate diagnosis.
Sophisticated technology comes in many forms and one popular one is troubleshooting software. Companies like Auto Tech have a software program that car owners can use … Read more
