These are some of the dreams that have come with the invention of virtual reality. With the introduction of computers, numerous applications have been enhanced or created. The newest technology that is being tapped is that of artificial reality, or virtual reality (VR). When Morton Heilig first got a patent for his Sensorama Simulator

Brave New World 1932 is one of the most insidious works of literature
Brave New World (1932) is one of the most insidious works of literature ever written. An exaggeration? Tragically, no. Brave New World has come to serve as the false symbol for any regime of universal happiness. So how does Huxley turn a future where we're all notionally happy into the archetypal dystopia? If it's technically feasible, what's wrong with using biotechnology to get rid of mental pain altogether? Brave New World is an unsettling, loveless and even sinister place. This is because H

Ohio had a major role in moving the country toward big business industrialization. First of all, it was Ohios population that moved from rural areas to urban settings. In 1860, eighty-three percent of Ohio was rural. In 1880, only sixty-eight percent of the population was rural. Finally, by 190, only fifty-two percent of Ohios population was rural, and in 1920, more than half of the population of the United State lived in urban areas. As a result of this change in population, Ohios economy chan

The History of the Panama Canal By Adam Mutcher Interest in a short route from the Atlantic to the Pacific began with the explorers of Central America early in the 16th century. Hernán Cortés, the Spanish conqueror of Mexico, suggested a canal across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec; other explorers favored routes through Nicaragua and Darién. The first project for a canal through the Isthmus of Panama was initiated by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who in 1523 ordered a survey of the isthmus. A worki

Aluminum Aluminum was the first discovered by Danish chemist Christan Oersted in 1825 using a chemical process involving potassium amalgam. The process was later improved by French chemist Friedrich Wohler by using metallic potassium. Woholer was also the first person to measure the specific gravity of aluminum. Pure aluminum is found in an ore called bauxite. IT is estimated that aluminum is formed on about 8% of the earth's surface. Of all the metallic elements aluminum is the most abundant.

Using Characters as a Study in Human Nature
Using Characters as a Study in Human Nature Authors use their characters to both tell the story as well as to symbolize different aspects of human nature. Although it is easy to determine a person's character in a work of non-fiction, it is more difficult to analyze the character of human nature in a fiction book, particularly when the author's characters are deep and multi-dimensional. In George Orwell's 1984, there are several main characters that show the many sides of a human being's charac

DNA has all the needed information to create the species from which it came from. DNA consists of genes which are coded messages in the DNA. These messages control the cell to be what it was intended to be for example a brain cell or a skin cell. All cells in an organism have the same exact DNA sequence unless it has been mutated. The reason why they all have the same DNA is because they all came from one cell, the embryo which replicated itself and these new daughter cells replicated themselve

Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that
Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that acts between two positively charged nuclei. For fusion to occur, the two nuclei must approach each other at high speed to overcome the electrical repulsion and attain a sufficiently small separation (less than one-trillionth of a centimeter) that the short-range strong nuclear force dominates. For the production of useful amounts of energy, a large number of nuclei must under go fusion: that is to say, a gas of fusing nuclei

Sound Recording and Reproduction
Sound Recording and Reproduction Sound recording and reproduction can be defined as keeping sound in the form it was meant to be, by the use of electrical, mechanical, or optical means, or by combination of the three. This makes reproducing the sound much easier. You can reproduce the sound at will through stereo systems. The sound quality of a recording is usually decided by the fidelity of the recorded sounds. The best recordings are called high fidelity. They reproduce the original sounds wi
