GM has developed technology provided for anyone who sits in the backseat of a car. Providing a window that will allow children as well as adults interact with the window using apps. GM asked the Bezalel students to turn car windows into interactive displays capable of stimulating awareness, nurturing curiosity and encouraging a stronger connection with the world outside the vehicle.

Researchers are concerned with the overall health of football players because of the constant high impact collisions that may cause brain damage to these athletes. Recently a gentlemen from Southern Mississippi University came up with a idea to improve the protection of the athletes when making contact. It was designed to minimize the impact of of the collisions by adding an extra layer of padding to the helmet which absorbs the impact. Take a look at the link and it goes in further detail to explain the new technology.
Abstract 1: Technology Overview and Impact
Brooks, D. (2001). Facing Up to Our Fears. Newsweek, 138(17), 66.
At the beginning of the 21st century our nation was struck by the terror of September 11th, which installed fear throughout the nation. A nation of people that ignored foreign affairs have been impacted by the event and were struck by fear. Fear can strike at any given moment, but many feel fear, sadness, frustration and anger through their experience of that day. Americans go as far as preparing for the next attack by buying supplies and building safe rooms. We are a nation that is an Individualistic society, focusing on what is happening in our country, but not following what maybe happening in others that may affect our society. Israel for example, may have their differences amongst each other, but in times of crisis they come together as a nation and believe in their leaders to solve the matter. We as a nation have courage and have been able to face the fears that were installed in many on September 11th. Enemies help realize what must be done, to do what is right and to restore order in society.
I would have to agree with Brooks because many Americans like to keep to themselves and many like to ignore the outside world. The reason why our society doesn’t really pay attention to politics is because people have the belief that politicians are dishonest as well as finding out about different scandals they may have committed. Our government also withholds a lot of information from society and the people know it. This causes society not to trust the leaders of this country. Now, I don’t think that should be any excuse for people not to pay attention to what is going on throughout the rest of the world, to stay informed and believe that the leaders of this nation will do what is best for this country.
I have always enjoyed learning about the new technology, but i don’t really have to much time to explore the different types of technology that has been invented. When I have time I try to look up information on the latest technology. Recently, I have come across the latest table top computer that microsoft invented, which has helped me realize how advanced technology is starting to get. Take a look at this link about the microsoft table top computer.
Scientists have discovered that Nitric oxide can help in overall heart health and improve muscle mass. Nitric oxide does this by creating a flow of oxygen through the muscles during workouts when it is needed the most to help promote muscle growth, strength and endurance.
