Сочинение на английском языке с переводом. Номинация Прочее.
Everybody knows that new technologies today do not only make our life easier, sweeter, more secured and comfortable, it mainly shows the economical, political, social development of the country. Every leading country tries to invent something absolutely new or redevelop old production in the way to show that this country has enough money, education and scientists. Nowadays we can not imagine our life without high-tech gadgets we use every day. We use them to communicate, to eat, to travel, to be healthy and so on. But in this very sphere we should adhere golden middle. Otherwise, noveltiescan turn against us.
The first reason of this is the environment protection. Production and usage of the new technologies, which are not aimed to save the environment, can cause many problems as ozone depletion, deforestation, pollution and energy consumption. Take for example a factory which produces synthetic materials for new gadgets. This factory emits tones of exhaust. These emissions can be a reason for acid rains.
The second reason is unemployment. Nowadays mane people can not get a job, but with the creation of robots that are able to substitute men labour, the number of unemployed people dramatically increases. Of course, for the employers to use robots is really profitable; they do their work accurately, they do not need payments, rest, social benefits and so on. As a consequence, a lot of people stay unemployed.
Thirdly, not every government or country can peacefully use new technologies. Take for example some countries with their development of atomic weapons. It is the threat to all Earth inhabitants. I am sure that these actions must be prohibited.
One else reason is that people become lazier with new technologies. Now we rarely read newspapers to know the news because it is easier to switch on the computer and find news in the Internet. We use mobile phones to talk with each other, but do not meet each other face to face. Nevertheless what can happen if all these good things of life disappear?
There is no doubt that new technologies help us to develop, increase life level, prolong our life time and so on. However I am strongly concerned that they should be used only in peaceful purpose, not damaging our environment and our lives.
Все знают, что современные технологии сегодня не только делают нашу жизнь легче, приятнее, безопаснее и комфортнее, но также определяют экономическое, политическое, социальное развитие страны. Каждая лидирующая странапытается изобрести нечто абсолютно новое или преобразовать старое, чтобы продемонстрировать, что эта страна обладает достаточным количеством материальных средств, образования и ученых. Сегодня мы не можем представить себе нашу жизнь без современных приборов, которые мы используем, каждый день. Мы используем их для того, чтобы общаться, есть, путешествовать быть здоровыми и так далее. Однако, в сфере новых технологий мы должны придерживаться золотой середины, иначе все эти новинки могут обернуться против нас самих.
Первая причина этому – это защита окружающей среды. Производство и использование некоторых новых технологий, которые не направлены на защиту окружающей среды, могут вызывать такие проблемы, такие как истощение озонового слоя земли, вырубку леса, различные загрязнения, истощение энергоресурсов. Для примера можно взять фабрику по производству синтетических материалов для современных гаджетов. Такая фабрика может выбрасывать в атмосферу тонны вредных веществ, вызывая кислотные дожди.
Вторая причина – безработица. Сегодня многие люди не могут устроиться на работу, но с изобретением роботов, которые способны заменить труд людей, количество безработных резко увеличилось. Дело в том, что для работодателя использование автоматики намного выгодней; они выполняют свою работу точнее, не требуют заработной платы, отпуска, социальных льгот и другого. В следствии этого, многие люди остаются безработными.
В-третьих, не каждое государство используют новые технологии в мирных целях. Например, некоторые страны занимаются развитием ядерного оружия, что является угрозой для всех жителей земли. Я уверенна, что такие действия должны быть строго запрещены.
Еще одна причина заключается в том, что с новыми технологиями люди становятся более ленивыми. Сейчас мы все реже читаем газеты, чтобы узнать о новостях. Нам проще включить компьютер и найти необходимые новости в сети Интернет. Мы звоним друг другу по мобильному телефону, но реже видимся. Вот только что с нами будет, если все эти блага исчезнут?
Нет никаких сомнений, что современные технологии помогают нам развивать, повышать уровень жизни, продлевать жизнь и так далее. Однако люди должны использовать новые технологии в мирных целях, не разрушая окружающую среду и нашу жизнь.

Scientific and Technological Progress — Научно-технический прогресс
It’s difficult to overestimate the role of science and technology in our life. They accelerate the development of civilization and help us in our co-operation with nature. Scientists investigate the laws of the universe, discover the secrets of nature, and apply their knowledge in practice improving the life of people.
Let’s compare our life nowadays with the life of people at the beginning of the 20th century. It has changed beyond recognition. Our ancestors hadn’t the slightest idea of the trivial things created by the scientific progress that we use in our every day life. I mean refrigerators, TV sets, computers, microwave ovens, radio telephones, what not. They would seem miracle to them that made our life easy, comfortable and pleasant. On the other hand, the great inventions of the beginning of the 20th century, I mean radio, airplanes, combustion and jet engines have become usual things and we can’t imagine our life without them.
A century is a long period for scientific and technological progress, as it’s rather rapid. Millions of investigations, the endless number of outstanding discoveries have been made. Our century has had several names that were connected with a certain era in science and technology. At first it was called the atomic age due to the discovery of the splitting of the atom.
Then it became the age of the conquest of space when for the first time in the history of mankind a man overcame the gravity and entered the Universe. And now we live in the information era when the computer network embraces the globe and connects not only the countries and space stations but a lot of people all over the world. All these things prove the power and the greatest progressive role of science in our life.
But every medal has its reverse. And the rapid scientific progress has aroused a number of problems that are a matter of our great concern. These are ecological problems, the safety of nuclear power stations, the nuclear war threat, and the Responsibility of a scientist.
But still we are grateful to the outstanding men of the past and the present who have courage and patience to disclose the secrets of the Universe.

Science and technology
We live in the fascinating and challenging world of science. It is a world that more and more over the ages, and especially in the 20th century has come to affect so much of our lives. It is involved with the way we travel, the homes we live in and the clothes we wear, how we become ill and how medicine can make us better, and has given us fantastic means of communicating and exploring.
The list of the inventations is rather long. We are on-lookers of great scientific achievements such as television and a computer. We can’t imagine our life withought a notebook or a radio.
I’d like to speak in details about computers.
What is a computer?
A computer is an electronic device that stores information and allows changes in it through the use of instructions. A modern computer is capable of doing various tasks, like word processing and accounting. Personal computers are widely used but working on them requires some techniques.
A computer gives
a lot of advantages to a user. The list of the advantages is rather long: computers give us access to the Internet – an international computer network. You can spread a lot of your free time surfing the Internet and get all sorts of information from it.
You can enter the chat room with other Internet users and debate urgent problems on line. If you are connectable by e-mail, you can correspond with your own web page and place there information about yourself.
Today computers help people to do many things. Bankers use them to keep track of money. Telephone operators use them to put calls through. Without computers, weather forecasters would make more mistakes. Computers also help scientists to solve their problems.
More than that computers help police to keep order in shops. Computers also help doctors to treat patients. Computers allow users to spend their free time and relax.
But computers have some disadvantages. Computers can make people lazy. People waste their time when they play different games on a computer.
People forget to go to the libraries, they often find information on the Internet. Wicked games can make people, especially children aggressive and stupid.
But in my view they have more advantages, that disadvantages. It’s an open secret that the computer is a source of education, entertainment and communication. And in my life the computer plays a very important role. It helps me to find information and relax.
Though scientists have archived so much, scientific minds are still working at some urgent problems. I would like to mention some problems. One of them is finding and using alternative sources of energy. Scientists are also learning how to save and conserve energy. They have many problems with creating highly effective systems of communication.
I can’t but mention one of the main problems. It is development of life on the planet.
I’d like to focus on the problem how to make our life longer and happier. It’s a well-known fact that nowadays people have a lot of artificial parts or implants inside them. There are some people who have problems with their health, especially with their hearts. And surgeons operate them on and put on implant inside them.
Surgeons think that within 50 years one person in ten will have at least one artificial part inside.
Because science will be around us even more in the future, I think we-tomorrows adults must start learning today to be ready to take our places in this computerized, transistorized, antibiotic, nuclear and supersonic age!

Life In The 21We’ve entered a new era: the twenty-first century. Of course, it’s exciting and we are trying to predict what our life will be like in.
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
1.In recent years, scientific and technological developments have drastically changed life on our planet as well as our views both of ourselves as individuals in society and of entire Universe as a whole.
2.Today, science and technology are closely related. Many modern technologies such as nuclear power and space flights depend on science and the application of scientific knowledge and principles. Each advance in pure science creates new opportunities for the development of new ways of making things to be used in daily life. In turn, technology provides science with new and more accurate instruments for its investigation and research.
3.Technology refers to the ways in which people use discoveries to satisfy needs and desires, to alter the environment, to improve their lives. Throughout human history, men and women have invented tools, machines, materials and techniques, to make their lives easier.
4.Of course, when we speak of technology today, we are looking at it in a much narrower sense. Generally, we mean industrial technology, or the technology that began about 200 years ago with the development of power-driven machines, growth of the factory system, and mass production of goods that has created the basis for our modern society. Today we often say that we live in an age of science and technology. According to one estimate, 90 % of all the scientists who ever lived, were alive and active in the 1970-s. This increased scientific activity has brought new ideas, processes, and inventions in ever-growing amount.
5.The scientific revolution that began in the 16th century was the first time that science and technology began to work together. Thus, Galileo, who made revolutionary discoveries in astronomy and physics, also built an improved telescope and patented a system of lifting water. However, it was not until the 19th century that technology truly was based on science and inventors began to build on the work of scientists. For example, Thomas Edison built on the early experiments of Faraday and Henry in his invention of the first practical system of electrical lighting. So too, Edison carried on his investigations until he found the carbon filament for the electric bulb in a research laboratory. This was the first true modern technological research.
6.In a sense, the history of science and technology is the history of all humankind.
1. What motivates people to make new discoveries & inventions?
2. How does progress in science & technology influence people’s lifestyle?
3. Can you give example of how one invention leads to another?
4. Do people change alongside with the changes in the materials world? In what way?
5. Is the world changing for the better or for the worse?
6. Can you give examples of the 20 th century inventions that in your opinion influenced the development of our civilization in a most dramatic way?
7. Can you give examples of the inventions that did more harm than good?
8. How do you see the future of our planet? What are the possible ways of keeping it safe? What can threaten the future?
9. What would you put in the museum of the 20 th century?
НАУКИ И ТЕХНИКИ
1.In последние годы научно-технический прогресс коренным образом изменили жизнь на нашей планете, а также наши взгляды как себя личностью в обществе и всей Вселенной в целом.
2.Today, наука и технологии тесно связаны. Многие современные технологии, такие как ядерная энергетика и космические полеты зависят от науки и применения научных знаний и принципов. Каждый шаг вперед в чистой науке создает новые возможности для развития новых способов делать вещи, которые будут использоваться в повседневной жизни. В свою очередь, технология обеспечивает науку новыми и более точные инструменты для его расследования и исследования.
3.Technology относится к пути, которыми люди используют открытий, чтобы удовлетворить потребности и желания, чтобы изменить окружающую среду, чтобы улучшить свою жизнь. На всем протяжении человеческой истории, мужчины и женщины изобрели инструментов, станков, материалов и технологий, чтобы сделать их жизнь проще.
4.Of Конечно, когда мы говорим о современной технологии, мы смотрим на это в более узком смысле. Как правило, мы имеем в виду промышленные технологии, или технологии, которая началась около 200 лет назад с развитием механических машин, рост фабричной системы, и массовое производство товаров, который создал основу для нашего современного общества. Сегодня мы часто говорим, что мы живем в век науки и техники. По некоторым оценкам, 90% всех ученых, которые когда-либо жили, живы и активны в 1970-х годах. Это увеличило научной деятельности принес новые идеи, процессы и изобретений в постоянно растущей суммы.
5.The научная революция, которая началась в 16 веке был первый раз, что наука и техника стали работать вместе. Таким образом, Галилей, который сделал революционное открытие в области астрономии и физики, также построен улучшенный телескоп и запатентовала систему подъема воды. Тем не менее, он не был до 19-го века, что технология действительно была основана на науке и изобретатели начали опираться на работу ученых. Например, Томас Эдисон построен на ранних экспериментов Фарадея и Генри в его изобретения первой практической системой электрического освещения. Так же, Эдисон продолжил свои исследования, пока не нашел углеродной нити для электрической лампочки в научно-исследовательской лаборатории. Это был первый настоящий современный технологических исследований.
6.In смысле история науки и техники, это история всего человечества.
1. Что мотивирует людей, чтобы сделать новые открытия и изобретения?
2. Как прогресс в области науки и технологии влияния образа жизни людей?
3. Можете ли вы привести пример того, как одно изобретение приводит к другому?
4. Есть ли люди меняются вместе с изменениями в мире материалов? В каком смысле?
5. Готов ли мир меняется к лучшему или к худшему?
6. Можете ли вы привести примеры изобретений 20-го века, которые на ваш взгляд влияние на развитие нашей цивилизации в наиболее впечатляющим способом?
7. Можете ли вы привести примеры изобретений, которые принесли больше вреда, чем пользы?

Chapter 1: Key Criteria for a Scientific Essay
So, what is Science and Technology Studies?
STS is a discipline that deals with innovative technologies and scientific research. Moreover, this study investigates how exactly science and society influence each other.
If you want to learn more about the way cultures produce new scientific ideas and the way technology, in its turn, affects cultures, courses in STS are definitely for you.
Here’s the thing:
While the relationship between science and technology and their difference is a subject of many debates, it is only reasonable to study them within the confines of one academic field (take a look at a Diffen article on Science vs. Technology for more info).
Well, it’s simple:
Today’s technology is possible thanks to yesterday’s science. And the future of science depends on our present technology. Their mutual impact is one of the primary subjects of STS.
And to achieve academic prowess in the field of STS, you will need to get good at writing scientific essays.
Scientific essays. Essay writing will definitely be a part of your syllabus. The main requirements for scientific essays—which are presented just down below—can help you create a great qualitative scientific essay in English.
Want to write the best essay on science? Then be extremely attentive so that you won’t miss anything while reading the general principles of essay writing presented below:
1. Reference authoritative works
Scientific essays should be based on one or more scientific articles. We have to admit here that internet resources are not always acceptable in academic institutions. So, do not hurry to surf Internet sources like Wikipedia first. Take your time by looking through the books stored in your university library.
2. Keep your sources fresh
Writers should use up-to-date and reliable sources of information as the basis of their scientific essay. As a rule, your university or college sets the requirements for the sources. So, before you use an article dated December 1945, consult your tutor. Such sources can be too outdated for scientific essays.
3. Stay on topic
Any articles used to write your scientific essays should be related to the areas you studied during a certain semester. That is why it is best to show the articles you’ve found to a tutor or TA in order to avoid possible misunderstandings.
4. Stick to the structure
The structure of a technology essay remains the same as basically any other custom essay. It includes:
- An essay introduction where you state your point in a clear thesis statement and give a general overview of the topic; it should explain the relationship of the article(s) to the essay.
- A main body where you present the results of your investigation in the form of topic sentences and arguments supporting them; the main body serves to present the writer’s interpretation of the article(s) read. When explaining the accuracy of interpretations, the writer should give proof, examples, quotations, etc.
- A closing paragraph where you restate your views and evoke the reader’s interest in further research; the conclusion of a scientific essay should present one or several findings made while analyzing the article(s).
Just saying that “more research on the subject is required” is not what the conclusion should be about. Recapitulating a few articles is not enough.
And if you want to make sure your essay is perfect grammar-wise, why not check our “Grammar tips” section?
We hope the information presented here will help you create a worthy scientific essay.

Chapter 3: Modern Technology Essay 101
Because technology is a rather broad concept, technology essay writing involves a wide scope of fields and can have many definitions. In the most general sense, this discipline studies human knowledge and how it contributes to the development and improvement of life.
Technology essays can talk about science, engineering, machines, hardware, utensils, systems, techniques, and methods of organization. As you can see, even simple essays about technology cover a wide variety of topics. After all, the STEM field encompasses multiple disciplines: environmental research, neurobiology, astrophysics, robotics, computer science, and much more. And all of these have a profound influence on our society.
Need an example?
Neurobiology poses difficult questions like: does each brain hemisphere have the potential for developing its separate consciousness? This raises a lot of ethical issues. Essays covering ethical issues within science often have this subtitle: “Boon or curse?”
We suggest that you investigate the following topics in your technology essay:
- Prehistoric discoveries versus recent technological developments.
- The invention of the wheel as a means of traveling and controlling one’s own environment.
- The printing press, the telephone, and the Internet: their contribution to global communications.
- Technological inventions that also have destructive power.
- Technology and the global economy.
- Technology and the rise of the leisure class.
- The positive and negative impacts of technology.
- Philosophical debates about the present and future use of technology.
- Luddism as the most radical opposition to the use of technology.
- Transhumanism and techno-progressivism and their positive views of technology.
- Does technology provide for a better life or is it a bane?
And if you are looking for more interesting topics for essay writing, check this out:
You are welcome to pick out one of the suggested essay topics and explore it in your own technology essay.
While writing a short essay on technology, keep the following tips in mind:
- Be sure you correctly understand the chosen problem.
- Compose well-developed sentences.
- Use linking phrases both within paragraphs and within the text as a whole.
- Ensure that your text is cohesive and logical.
- Give a detailed explanation of your research.
- Offer vivid and persuasive arguments.
- Write in language that would be clear even to an unsophisticated audience.
- Mind the tone and wording of your technology essay.
- Be careful about various types of mistakes (spelling, grammar, style, format).
- Sound formal but not moralizing.
- Foresee possible questions from your readers and answer them beforehand in your essays on technology.
- Call your readers to action and push them toward an adequate response.
The interdisciplinary nature of STS is the reason why this kind of thematic essay has some particularly high requirements. You have to follow all the rules of writing a typical English essay and be very careful when choosing reliable studies and relevant scientific facts.
Write such an effective essay on technology that it will have a valuable significance for human development, as any finding you reach may be further used for the benefit of mankind.
Chapter 4: Space Exploration Essay Ideas
Our fascination with what lies beyond the sky is reflected in the abundance of space sci-fi fiction. Many people got interested in science and space exploration thanks to movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey and TV shows like Star Trek.
Probably, even primitive men had a yearning for more knowledge of the sky, stars, sun, outer space planets, the universe, and all the other sky objects. With the development of science and some primal technologies, people started to think of being closer to the sky.
Space explorations began in the ancient world and from century to century humanity’s knowledge of the sky and space was amassing. Finally, people managed to create the first satellite, the first spaceship. We managed to arrange the first space trip and step on the moon.
All these amazing things, getting us closer to the brave new world, can be described in essays on space exploration. We are glad to help you with your space exploration essay by giving several essay writing topics with answers.
