Aged 22, while stationed with the British Army in India in 1896, he read Darwin's On the Origin of Species and a primer on physics. In the 1920s and 1930s, he wrote popular-science essays on topics such as evolution and cells in newspapers and magazines. In a 1931 article in The Strand Magazine entitled 'Fifty Years Hence' 1 , he described fusion power: “If the hydrogen atoms in a pound of water could be prevailed upon to combine together and form helium, they would suffice to drive a thousand-horsepower engine for a whole year.” His writing was likely to have been informed by conversations with his friend and later adviser, the physicist Frederick Lindemann.

During the Second World War, Churchill supported the development of radar and Britain's nuclear programme. He met regularly with scientists such as Bernard Lovell, the father of radio astronomy. An exchange about the use of statistics to fight German U-boats captures his attitude. Air Chief Marshal Arthur 'Bomber' Harris complained, “Are we fighting this war with weapons or slide rules?” Churchill replied, “Let's try the slide rule.” 2

    Technology ("science of craft", from Greek τέχνη , techne , "art, skill, cunning of hand"; and -λογία , -logia [4] ) is the collection of techniques , skills , methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines which can be operated without detailed knowledge of their workings.

    Technology has many effects. It has helped develop more advanced economies (including today''''s global economy ) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products known as pollution and deplete natural resources to the detriment of Earth''''s environment. Various implementations of technology influence the values of a society and raise new questions of the ethics of technology. Examples include the rise of the notion of efficiency in terms of human productivity , and the challenges of bioethics.

    Nadejda, I will simply indicate where your essay needs to be edited, and what changes ought to be made, as you do not seem to have a problem with creating a basic structure for your essay. The only errors I can spot are grammatical, which I believe can be easily resolved by simple word insertion/replacement. *Add a comma after "information technology plays a crucial role in people s lives" in sentence 1, because it is a concept you will want to isolate from the rest, which talks about the change in people s working practices, obviously something different. *The most important OF its branches are the internet and certainly modern computers. I m not so sure "branches" is the right term. Try to come up with something which better describes these aspects of technology you are denoting. You might also want to think further about these "certainly modern computers" you are making reference to -- is there a more precise or technical term you could use, rather than using a somewhat vague adjective (exactly how would you define "modern"?) *Advantages in modern technology HAVE made people s working hours more flexible and HAVE PROVEN BENEFICIAL to the environment. *Work involves working with papers and on the phone.. Chance to telework sounds redundant. Try looking for synonyms. I d phrase it this way: "Employees whose jobs involve mainly paperwork and telephone calls are now less pressured with the advent of digital work environments" *It is more profitable for ORGANIZATIONS (Plural) *interviewed through Skype. No more "the" in between! *all bank operationS are *now performed* through the internet. *"People should not go to the bank" Shouldn t they? Is it not acceptable for them to do so anymore? I believe the more precise term for what you wish to convey is "need not." They MAY, but it is no longer necessary. *Secondly, (no space before comma) *without HAVING TO LEAVE their HOMES. *they have to have -- how about "all they need are a.." *"Finally, for example.." No need to say "for example." It is out of place. Just say, three years ago in RUSSIA (Russian is a language), a new project in the medical field was lost which enabled patients to consult with doctors regardless of distance. *big ALTERATIONS.. IN the last decade I firmly believe THAT in ten years Great changes which WILL make

    Dear Grandma Maggie, I have a dilemma with my step daughter. She is four now and her father and I have been together for a year. We’ve always been very consistent.
