The statement linking technology negatively with free thinking plays on recent human experience over the past century. Surely there has been no time in history where the lived lives of people have changed more dramatically. A quick reflection on a typical day reveals how technology has revolutionized the world. Most people commute to work in an automobile that runs on an internal combustion engine. During the workday, chances are high that the employee will interact with a computer that processes information on silicon bridges that are .09 microns wide. Upon leaving home, family members will be reached through wireless networks that utilize satellites orbiting the earth. Each of these common occurences would have been inconceivable at the turn of the 19th century.

Sure we hear more about pieces of art which are famous in wider society. Be it the painting of Mona Lisa or the works of Hammingway, the popularity and mainstream acceptance of these works definitely have contributed towards the adoration society has for these pieces. But is the, supposed, wide-spread appeal of any piece of art a necessary condition for that art-work to have any merit? I believe, even if a piece of art is not understandable to most people it would be unfair to question it's merit as the burden of proof is not on the artist and even if the piece is understood by a select few, judging in absolute artistic terms, it still can have a considerable artistic value.

We often hear stories about prodigies - kids starting writing softwares at the age of five or composing entire symphonies at the age of ten and one can't help but wonder, is it a society's responsibility to provide them with extra attention and resources or should we strictly treat them like any other kid their so as to preserve their childhood? I think, society should provide every opportunity to these extraordinary kids as not only they can, in return, give a lot back to society, but also society owes it to them to help develop their potential and achieve greatness.

Nurturing the kids is perhaps the most important factor in the fate of a nation. Therefore, this area warrants, any nation's, utmost interest. But how should one proceed to provide a platform for these kids to develop their potential. Should that platform be uniform or specific? I believe, forcing students to take courses they clearly have no interest in, is tantamount to deliberately wasting their time an energy.

Surely many of us have expressed the following sentiment, or some variation on it, during our daily commutes to work: â€œPeople are getting so stupid these days!â€ Surrounded as we are by striding and strident automatons with cell phones glued to their ears, PDA's gripped in their palms, and omniscient, omnipresent CNN gleaming in their eyeballs, it's tempting to believe that technology has isolated and infantilized us, essentally transforming us into dependent, conformist morons best equipped to sideswip one another in our SUV's.
Are the politicians our leaders or representatives or servantsMay 8th, 2015
Are the politicians our leaders or representatives or servants ? The politicians, especially in democracies, are given power by the people to take decisions on their behalf by implementing domestic policies, working with other sovereigns etc. But what marks good leadership - being firm in one's beliefs at the time of criticism or be accomodating to dial down any possible unrest? I beleive leaders are elected to, first and foremost, to serve people and in doing so if they have to comprosmise their own personal pnciples, for the good of people, they should do it without hesitation.

The entire justice (and reward) system of our society is based upon the idea that an individual is responsible for his/her actions alone. We assume that we have a total control over our behavior, but as much as we love to take pride in our superior intelligence and free will, if one carefully considers our actions and their cause - we don't appear to be too different from a robot which has been programed to behave in a certain way by its manufacturer.

The report than, citing new evidence of presence of these baskets in an area geographically cut-off from Palea, refutes this claim.

Education is certainly the hot-button issue of the moment, with national policies like Race to the Top and No Child Left Behind changing the way we teach, measure academic success, and even learn. At the heart of the debate over the future of education is the question broached in this prompt: are academic subjects, such as mathematics and history, more worthy of students' time than life skills, such as critical thinking, ethics, and self-expression? Many refuse to let go of the system of rote memorization and strict quantitative evaluation that has long characterized education in America, yet in a fast-paced world characterized by huge systemic problems and constant seismic shifts in science, business, and technology, this system is no longer functional. Adulthood is primarily non-academic, and school is meant to prepare students for adulthood. Thus, schools should indeed do more to prepare students for the non-academic aspects of life.

The future of arts, based upon their reach and standin in current society, doesn't look too bright. More and more people view it ,disdainly, as a shiney toy for the rich people as the wider society has limited access to it.

The advertising director of Super screen Movie production company asserts that fewer people have attended super Screen produced movies last year than any other year despite the fact that the percentage of positive reviews have actually gone up.
