Top 10 Most Influential Tech Advances Of The Decade

We’ve come a long way in just 10 years. While the 1990s saw computers, the Internet, and various consumer electronics steadily evolve from the sole purview of nerds into things everyone can use, it was the aughts which truly brought these technologies (and many more) into the lives of mainstream America.

We’ve seen the birth of social networking, the slow death of wires, and the growth of both entertainment and business technology to the point that the gadgets, computers, and instruments we use today in both work and play look far, far different than those we used back in 2000.

Our pockets are emptier, but the few items inside them can do more than ever. Our televisions are thinner, but their screens display several times more detail. Our storage devices are smaller, but they hold massive amounts of data. These 10 technological advancements represent the biggest, most influential changes we’ve seen in consumer electronics in the last decade.  See The Top 10

Top 10 Common Misconceptions

Much of the reason for the rumours that Napoleon was a short man (and thus had to compensate by invading countries and becoming ruler of Europe) comes from the confusion between old French feet and Imperial (British) feet. Measured shortly after his death in 1821, Napoleon was recorded at 5ft 2in in French feet, which corresponds to 5ft 6.5in in Imperial feet, or 1.69m. This makes him slightly taller than the average Frenchman of the 19th century. Napoleon’s nickname of ‘le petit caporal’ has also perpetuated the rumour, with non-francophones interpreting ‘petit’ to refer to his height, when it was actually a term of affection referring to his camaraderie with ordinary soldiers.

Linguistic Misconceptions

  If we ask ourselves the simple question of, whose speech is better, mine or theirs?  We can come to a common understanding.  There is no exact answer to that question, but studies have been conducted and conclusions can be drawn from these studies.  Author, Donna Jo Napoli, states, “The fact that variation in language is both unavoidable and sometimes a result of esthetic and political choices does not mean that educational institutions should not insist that children master whatever language has been deemed the standard-just for purely practical reasons (Napoli).”   This statement has been accepted among many individuals self-consciously.  If we think of this as a choice it makes much more sense…

Anthropology in its Finest

For many years anthropologists have been digging up artifacts, ecofacts, and fossils from the ground.  These findings have given anthropologists a very unique understanding how people from the past had conducted themselves.  What type of food they eat, what type of tools did they use to harvest their food, or hunt with.  These are just some of the questions that go through an anthropologist’s mind when they did up a site.  Now, not only does anthropology have plenty to do with digging up fossils, but there is also another side to the study, called cultural anthropology.  This study focuses on the change in human cultures over a long period of time.  Some examples of what cultural anthropology might consist of would be, their language, diet, music, work habits, how did they construct their homes, and gender roles.  When we take a closer look into anthropology we can see that anthropology is broken up into several sub groups, as the meaning anthropology is a very broad term.  This paper will be focusing more on the relation between social and behavioral sciences of anthropology, and how theories have changed over the past.
