As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems [#permalink] New post 26 Feb 2017, 18:36
As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.

With the advent of new technology life has been easier. A lot has been said and done to highlight the implication of technology on basic human nature. The most harmful impact has been satiated attitude that human race has developed, thanks to innumerable Apps and inventions that is at our disposal. Therefore, it is imperative for human race to rely less on technology and more on manual efforts to build up the brain muscle.

The bone of contention lies in reasoning of an individual which gets paralyzed thanks to daily assault that human brain faces with simple click. Yes ‘the simple click/tap’ that generates a simple yes or displays complex results in matter of seconds. Human brain stops questioning the how? and Why?, affecting its critical ability to perceive things.

Let’s take auto correct and very common tool that comes in handy in when writing mailers or taking down important notes. People have forgotten how it felt to write in an unmonitored setting. The average writing score of gre applicants in 2015 dipped by 0.5 points, as compared to 2001 writing score. The test examiner’s complained that major score losses were due to incorrect spelling and grammatical errors.

We should also not ignore the fact that technology that is developed cannot be applicable in every setting. Say an Algorithm is developed to fly a space ship from earth to moon. It is not necessary that the same algorithm can be used to move from moon to mars. Here the different things get factored in that was not considered earlier in developing the algorithm. Having said that simple algorithms around the worlds have made scaled up our businesses, and took our research programs to unprecedented heights.

In short, Technology cannot be ignored however skillset cannot be ignored. To reiterate everything, technology today has overwhelmed the human intelligent quotient, the ability of human mind to function without these needs to be improved. It’s best that individuals take time to appreciate the complex scheme of things.

sorry, my bad.

This is an issue task. the topic is - As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.

Need to know if the length of the essay is appropriate. Also I understand there are few grammatical errors. This took me 40 minutes not within the time limit. I am worried. please guide.

Thanks

Small businesses need many conditions in place in order to thrive: startup capital, a suitable location and physical infrastructure, shrewd founders who can adapt to changing circumstances — and also, of course, customers. While, in general, a government’s hands-off policy towards small business can help small businesses by freeing owners from time-consuming and cumbersome regulations, it is also the case that some government regulations are needed to protect the public from unscrupulous business owners. This type of regulation not only helps the public, but helps small businesses thrive by increasing consumer
confidence in small businesses, as well as protecting ethical small businesses from unfair competition from businesses that break the rules.

The United States has one of the highest rates of entrepreneurship in the developed world — much higher than the rates in Western Europe. Why? In the U.S., virtually anyone can start a business. For about $35, one can obtain a business license, and then you’re officially in businesses. Hiring the first employee or two is also relatively simple, and some workers can be paid as contractors, which eliminates the need to administer payroll taxes. In contrast, in Western European nations where you need employment papers (and sometimes references) to even open a simple checking account, naturally, the regulations and paperwork needed to start an enterprise can be daunting. Furthermore, laws intended to protect workers mean that it is virtually impossible to fire anyone, which can be a real burden for a small business that simply cannot survive with employees who are not up to the task. The lack of regulation in the U.S. is a strong contributor to the burgeoning of small business in that country.

On the other hand, a pure laissez-faire policy would be disastrous for small business, as well as for society. Should we allow small businesses to sell “health cures” that actually make people sick, or car seats for babies that haven’t been through safety testing? Of course not — even if requiring safety testing puts a burden on small business. The safety of the public is important, to be sure, but public confidence is also important if small businesses are to have any customers. Furthermore, some small business owners (just like large business owners) practice racial discrimination, sexual harassment, and other abuses of workers, such as paying undocumented workers less than minimum wage. It is important for human rights to curtail these abuses; it also helps small businesses for the government to put a check on such practices, because then legitimate, ethically-run businesses can compete on a fair playing field.


This is a good structured example of an issue, abour SME

Compare the two: yours and this.
