What does the term Information Technology' really mean? Information technology is that technology by which the 'nformation is processed, communicated, exhibited and Retrieved in a fast, error-free and proper-way. Information technology is a technology in which both telecommunication computer technologies work together to provide formation.

Today's world is the world of information and telecommunication. Everyday new technology and inventions are being made in the area of information, processing and travelling.

The whole world has become a small place today. Any information can be exchanged by people in few seconds and that, too, in proper and effective way without any loss of data while it is being processed. On the one hand, all these different ways of tele-communication and information exchage have highlighted the necessity for multipurpose development and growth of information technology and on the other, the easy access and use of it has boosted the network of information exchange.

All this has been possible through information technology like telephone, fax, telex, computers, internet, e-mail, photocopier, printer, scanner, cellular phones, pagers, videophone, digital camera, multimedia, etc.

These technologies are becoming a part and parcel of our lives and are transforming lifestyles and habits of people all over the world.

The use of computers has increased by leaps and bounds worldwide. Internet and multimedia have now become playthings for children. The internet has revolutionized every field of the world.

She undressed slowly, dreamily, and when she was naked, she selected a bright red negligee to wear so that the blood would not show. Doris Whitney looked around the bedroom for the last time to make certain that the pleasant room, grown dear over the past thirty years, was neat and tidy. She opened the drawer of the bedside table and carefully removed the gun. It was shiny black, and terrifyingly cold. She placed it next to the telephone and dialed her daughter's number in Philadelphia. She listened to the echo of the distant ringing. And then there was a soft "Hello?" "Tracy... I just felt like hearing the sound of your voice, darling." "What a nice surprise, Mother." "I hope I didn't wake you up." "No. I was reading. Just getting ready to go to sleep. Charles and I were going out for dinner, but the weather's too nasty. It's snowing hard here. What's it doing there?" Dear God, we're talking about the weather, Doris Whitney thought, when there's so much I want to tell her. And can't. "Mother? Are you there?" Doris Whitney stared out the window. "It's raining."

The Panama Canal - from Yesterday to Tomorrow

...The Panama Canal: From Yesterday to Tomorrow By Clarence Moore North Lake College Introduction to Business Logistics LGMT-1319-73471 Professor Jeffrey Wendt April 2013 When the first European, Rodrigo de Bastidas, reached Panama in 1501, he could hardly envision the magnitude of the Isthmus’ future. As more Spanish caravels arrived, the search for gold was intensified. A shortened route from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean was not found by Magellan, who conceived of going around Cape Horn or passing through the Straits that were to bear his name. When sea routes were found to be to long the Spaniards turned to overland crossings, and when Vasco Nunez de Balboa first crossed the Isthmus of Panama in 1513, he initiated a ceaseless march of traffic. Panamanians are still proud of the curious Balboa who discovered the Pacific, surveyed the Panama route across the Central America Isthmus and found that there existed a difference in the levels of the respective oceans. The Conquistador Herman Cortes was certain that no natural waterway existed between the Atlantic and the Pacific, and he expressed a desire to construct a sea passageway through Panama, Darien, Nicaragua, or Tehmantepec. The dreams of the foresighted Cortes went for naught as it was almost three centuries before serious consideration was again given to the construction of an interocean waterway (Liss). From the beginning of the sixteenth century until the......

Women Today, Tomorrow and the Future

...Women Today, Tomorrow and the Future Society has many imperfections. It oppresses people and causes them to think only in the ways it approves of. Society causes generalizations to become into a reality. In Night to His Day: The Social Construction of Gender, Respected Scholar, Judith Lorber discusses the importance society places on the issue of gender. She talks about how society contributes to assigning gender. Society sets guidelines from what we should expect from women. People are not objects with roles and should not be chosen by another gender or by society. Respected author Alan Johnson believes in the same thing but concentrates on the idea of personal identity and fulfillment in regards to race and gender roles in his book, Privilege, Power & Difference. The advertising world is one of the reasons why women base their role on what they want to be in life and how they are portrayed in society. The commercials like the DiGiorno Pizza and Burger King “It Will Blow Your Mind Away” show how women in society are viewed in an entirely different perspective by the advertising world. Women should not be considered in a passive role, and should possess the ability to go out and take charge of their lives, otherwise society will continue to believe are only good for certain trivial functions. In the DiGiorno commercial, both genders are stereotyped into traditional gender roles as the men are seen relaxing outside while viewing sports and the woman is seen heading in her......

Human Resource Management -- Now and Tomorrow

...Human Resource Management – Now and Tomorrow Eric Iwanaga MGMT 3400 – D Professor Henry Ku INTRODUCTION: A great many people in today’s society – from kids who are still learning, to the young adults and older who are in the work force – either do not know the significance of human resource management to the business, or take it for granted. Many people assume that human resource management are only assigned the task of calming disputes or disagreements between employees, employers, and the labor union, if present. While this is true, it is important to know that human resource management does a lot more to ensure the health of a business. Human resource management is tasked with human Capital Development, and Cost Containment (Ku, handout); these are the two missions that human resources management must undertake to keep the people working with the company content, and as conflict-free as possible. What many take for granted is that the people in the company and the business are the most valuable assets, for without them, productivity is impossible, and thus, there no longer be businesses. The management of people has been around for quite a while. According to the Handout, family farms and trade were the first form of management; it was relationship where the master would watch over the apprentice, and the apprentice would imitate the master to succeed and rise in rank. (Ku, Handout) This early form of management was very laid back and more intimate as......

Review of Maybe Tomorrow

...The book ‘’Maybe Tomorrow’’ tells the story of Boori Monty Pryor. It describes the career path and life story of an Aboriginal in Australia. From being a model to eventually becoming a writer or like it is called in the aboriginal cultural, a storyteller. The book is not a typical biography, because it has been written as a one-way conversation between Boori and the reader. Personally I find this somewhat confusing; jumping from one topic to the other does not feel comfortable to read. What it definitely does deliver on is giving a better understanding about the aboriginal culture, the difficulties they face from white Australians in this country and how every person in this culture needs to adapt to the way of the ‘white men’. There are many consequences to this manifestation. For example, the fact that alcoholism and suicide is a common factor in the aboriginal culture. It is very sad that several aboriginals try to cope with the struggles they face by consuming excessive alcohol or taking their own life. This transpires very much so in Boori’s life. Three of his siblings committed suicide and alcoholism was around him when growing up. It is very unfortunate that the book does not describe the personal story of his siblings. It would have giving the book a different aspect of why his siblings would decide to take their own life. Boori gives a good description what the most likely reason was but only his siblings truly know. Nobody will ever know what their personal......

Innovations That Will Change Your Tomorrow

...32 Innovations That Will Change Your Tomorrow The electric light was a failure. gets you there. It’s bad financial decisions and blueprints for machines that weren’t built until decades later. It’s the important leaps forward that synthesize lots of ideas, and it’s the belly-up failures that teach us what not to do. When we ignore how innovation actually works, we make it hard to see what’s happening right in front of us today. If you don’t know that the incandescent light was a failure before it was a success, it’s easy to write off some modern energy innovations — like solar panels — because they haven’t hit the big time fast enough. Worse, the fairy-tale view of history implies that innovation has an end. It doesn’t. What we want and what we need keeps changing. The incandescent light was a 19th-century failure and a 20th- century success. Now it’s a failure again, edged out by new technologies, like LEDs, that were, themselves, failures for many years. That’s what this issue is about: all the little failures, trivialities and not-quite-solved mysteries that make the successes possible. This is what innovation looks like. It’s messy, and it’s awesome. Maggie KoerthBaker Invented by the British chemist Humphry Davy in the early 1800s, it spent nearly 80 years being passed from one initially hopeful researcher to another, like some not-quite-housebroken puppy. In 1879, Thomas Edison finally figured out how to make an incandescent light bulb that people would buy. But...

What Is the Significance of Macbeth's Tomorrow and Tomorrow

...What is the significance of Macbeths ‘’Tomorrow and Tomorrow’ ’to the meaning of the play overall? Macbeth is a complicated playset set in the medieval times which focuses on the disintegration of society, relationships and characters themselves. Shakespeare’s famous ‘’Tomorrow and Tomorrow’’ transcends time and is still a ringing bell in today’s society .This soliloquay stretches throughout the play emphasising time namely Macbeth’s gradual dehumanisation due to his ambition and substantial exposure to evil where he is trapped in an endless spiral of guilt and eventually tragedy. This is a comparison between his past self where he was honourable compared to his present self where he is ruthless. Perhaps the greatest tragedy in Macbeth isn’t the death of himself but the path of dehumanisation he takes. The theme of how substantial exposure to evil affects you is illustrated in Macbeth’s Soliloquay. This eerie, altered perspective of life and mortality has definitely overcome Macbeth due to his exposure to sheer evil wether it is the deeds he performs or the witches. Shakespeare uses contrast to highlight the deterioration of Macbeth as in the beginning of the play he is portrayed by the nobles, soldiers and King Duncan as noble, brave, loyal and valiant ‘Those he commands move only in command, Nothing in love...’ and in comparison to the time of this soliloquay is a person who has piled copius blood upon his hands and is an illogical dejected tyrant. For Macbeth he has......

Consider knowledge issue raised by this statement in two areas of knowledge. As I have studied in an Indian curriculum until grade 10 the knowledge that I had until then for the subject of environmental studies (AOK) was nothing but only about the rising concerns of the environment learn most of the stuff that was given in book to get good marks. But this was all discarded when I joined the IBDP curriculum and took that to study as a standard level subject. What I have learnt now is that this subject not only taught me about the environmental concerns but also about the different aspects of the environment and also to practically applies the concepts that we have learnt. Whatever knowledge I had earlier about the subject of learning by heart the stuff, has now been changed, as it is not learning by heart but apply the concepts that we have learnt and perform practical experiments related to the subject. This is because the way of teaching has changed. The......

Politics- Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

...Politics- Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow POLITICAL 110: US GOVERNMENT Feb. 14th, 2016 Professor Mark Stallo Politics- Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow Civil Liberties and Social Responsibility in American Government Today Throughout our country’s history, civil liberties have influenced American social responsibility within the government. Civil liberties are fundamental rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the Constitution. There are many examples of civil liberties mentioned in the Bill of Rights such as: freedom of speech, freedom of press, the right to a fair trial, the right to own property, and freedom of religion. (U.S. Department of Defense, 2016) The protection of these rights as guaranteed by the Constitution allows United States citizens to freely act in accordance with each civil liberty. For instance, on April 25th, 2015 local officials in Baltimore MD responded to citizens exercising their civil liberties including freedom of speech and right to protest. The events influenced the local officials and political leaders to react both negatively and positively. Although the people participating in the protest were able to exercise their right to protest and speak freely, this freedom was short lived. Eventually several protestors, civilians, and even news reporters were shot with rubber bullets, pepper-sprayed, arrested, or otherwise silenced during the demonstration. These events are very similar to another instance during 2014 in......

The Day After Tomorrow

...The movie, The Day After Tomorrow, is actually about the issue of global warming which caused the temperature to increase the earth’s atmosphere  where polar ice caps are melting and thus, increasing the water levels of oceans. Then flooding occurs, and other climatic disturbances occur all over the world as well. This sets the stage for a new Ice Age. At first, I thought it’s a movie about weather, dramatic and a disaster movie. It provides suspense and a prediction of a climate shift which is going to happen again after 10,000 years.  The way the movie portrayed global warming and other disastrous events were extreme and not very believable. Some of the information is backed up by science but most is completely off the wall and nonrealistic. The movie cited the cause of the global climate change to be the rise in temperature due to greenhouse gasses. According to the movie, the warmer temperatures caused the polar ice caps to melt, and the increased amount of water in the ocean disrupted the North Atlantic Current. The North Atlantic Current is what is responsible for the warm temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere. With the current disrupted the Northern Hemisphere went into an ice age. In real life, the polar ice caps are melting, but at a rate not even close to that of the one represented in the movie. There is no way that the ice would melt so quickly that a change that drastic would be made. Another major issue I had with the movie was its temperature......

Tomorrow Is Too Far Analysis

...Tomorrow Is Too Far VATE Inside Stories 2014 This is the other story in the collection, which is told in the second person and it is considered the more powerful one by many reviewers. This story looks back eighteen years to an incident in the narrator’s childhood, one which has had a major impact on her whole life. The narrator reflects on the last summer before everything changed – her parents divorced, she never returned to Nigeria or saw her father’s family again. The memory begins eighteen years earlier in Nigeria at grandmamma’s place where the American-Nigerian narrator, her older brother Nonso and her cousin Dozie were all staying. Grandmamma favoured Nonso as the eldest grandson and the only one to carry the ‘Nnabuisi name’ (p.188) and largely ignored the other two. This was the summer that Nonso died, leaving grandmamma and her American daughter-in-law grief stricken. The narrator felt alienated from them both. The action moves from the memory to the present where the narrator has arrived back in Nigeria, having been called by Dozie for the first time in eighteen years and told about the death of her grandmother. Dozie tells her that he is surprised to see her because he knows how much she hated grandmamma. She recalls Nonso’s funeral and the months later where she told her mother that he died because grandmamma sent him up the avocado tree ‘to show how much of a man he was’ (p.194) and then frightened him by telling him there was a snake there. She also said...

Are We Ready for Tomorrow, Today?

...The speech “Are We Ready for Tomorrow, Today?” was delivered by Muhtar Kent, the president and CEO of the Coca-Cola Co, at the 2009 Investor & Analyst Event held in the world global conference in Atlanta. As this speech is specifically structured to present a business plan for upcoming year of 2020, Kent uses the majority of ethos and logos artistic appeals as means of an effective persuasion. The argument surrounds a careful and logical analysis of past failures and successes backed up with statistical and visual references designed to “inform, provoke, challenge and inspire” the audience (Kent 2009), followed by an orderly presentation of numerous strategies on how they will shape the future as the leading “business of non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages.” (119) The appropriate artistic and inartistic appeals applied in the speech not only polish the essence of an effective argument, but also increases credibility as an influential speaker. It is evident that Kent tries to avoid using pathos, an appeal of emotion, as a form of appeal to prevent logical scrutiny from the audience. Instead, the speech follows a strict pattern of stating logical reasoning after presenting each inartistic proof and thus, succeeds in gaining compliance as a credible speaker. Apart from impressive statistical numbers on its company’s accomplishments, the content of the speech relies heavily on ethos, served as appeals to values and speaker’s credibility, exerting a strong and dependable...

“the Luxuries of Today Are the Necessities of Tomorrow”

...number of people in society use certain things which were treated with indifference before or regarded as luxuries, it becomes necessary for others to use them to maintain their status in society. Men today are too conscious of their position in society, and to assert their social influence whenever it is possible, they gain possession of certain things such as telephones or refrigerators, which they had earlier regarded as luxuries. Thus, most of the necessities of today are actually not necessities in the sense that they are indispensable for survival, but that they are required to add to the comforts of life and our social position, and there is no doubt that many more of the luxuries of today will come to be regarded as necessities tomorrow....
