The Blogger's Experience

     This exercise not only made me learn about how to make a blog, but it also made me realize that we can and should take advantage of technology. At first I was skeptical and always asked why people create blogs in the first place. But then I realized that it can serve as a good venue to share whatever it is on your mind or if you want people to know about the upcoming technology. As it was my first time to create a blog, I had no idea how to do it, but once I learned how, I started to enjoy doing it. I have come up with two reasons why people make blogs: the first is that it can be used to persuade people of your particular viewpoint. If you feel strongly about a topic, whether it's politics, religion, or maybe sports, you may persuade other people to see things the same way you do. A blog lets you put your opinion out there for others to read. Does it work? Sometimes. But what often happens is this: the people who end up reading your blog faithfully are the ones who agree with you to begin with. Secondly, blogs can be used to keep in touch with family and friends. Some people want their friends and family to know about all the things they're doing day to day. These kinds of blogs often go great guns for awhile, and then fizzle out after awhile. After all, when you have time to update it, those are the times when there's not as much interesting stuff to write about, and when you don't have time to update it, well, that's when all the interesting stuff is happening! 

     Technological innovation is critical to our nation for many reasons. First and foremost, technology fuels sustainable economic expansion: creating high-wage jobs, world-class exports, and driving productivity and growth so critical to our long-term global competitiveness. Innovations also improve our quality of life: from new drugs and cures that help people live longer and healthier lives, to agricultural advances that permit more harvests with less pesticides. Advances in technology are vital to our efforts to protect our homeland, hardening our infrastructure, detecting dangers, and empowering our defenders. Overall, this has been an interesting activity and an educational experience for me. :)

Living Tomorrow: house of the future

I'm sure everyone wondered with all the technology we have today, what would our future homes be like? Everything will be touch screen, or you might even not to touch anything at all since they are voice activated. If you had asked someone in the 1960s what the home of 2015 would look like, chances are they imagined something akin to The Jetsons’ home complete with Rosie the Robot and other space-age appliances that dressed and fed the family. Here is a video that will give us a glimpse of what will future homes be like.

Skills I Want to Learn - Jiu Jitsu Self-Defense

In today’s uncertain world, the necessity of physical self-defense cannot be denied. Modern cities are by no means safe places, and crime is on the rise every day. Even when there are police around, they may be corrupt, incompetent or unwilling to do anything. Martial arts have been used for thousands of years all over the world for self defense, and learning one or more styles of self-defense can be quite useful when you’re on the street and have to face a potential attacker unarmed. In my case, I find Jiu Jitsu interesting because I watch a lot of MMA.

Many people no longer rely on wristwatches due to the prevalence of mobile phone clocks, yet they still hold strong appeal for aesthetic reasons.

Flipped Class 101

According to Wikipedia, Flip teaching is a form of blended learning which encompasses any use of Internet technology to leverage the learning in a classroom, so a teacher can spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing. This is most commonly being done using teacher created videos that students view outside of class time. One advantage is by taking the lecture portion of the classroom home with them, students are able to utilize their teachers' one-on-one attention more successfully in the classroom. One disadvatage is that students from lower income areas and lower income families may not have access to the computers and internet technologies that the flipped classroom requires.

Libraries are Obsolete Trailer

With the technology today, people do not anymore go to libraries because everything they need to know is on the internet. There are also what we call the e-books which are more practical since they are cheaper and convenient since you do not need to bring the heavy books. An example would be my wife, who is a student of medicine, who just uses an iPad since medical books can be a thousand pages each, so for convenience she just had the e-book version instead. In ths video, an Oxford-Style Debate was conducted in Harvard University Graduate School of Design to discuss whether libraries are indeed obsolete or not.
