...growth of new industrialized countries such as South Korea and China. (Jorgenson and Jorgenson 365) With so many countries now outsourcing their manufacturing to these industrialized nations, more and more factories are being constructed as a result. To run these factories, a large amount of energy consumption is needed as many of the factories operate 24 hours a day. The emissions these factories produce are amongst some of the highest in the world and contribute significantly to the amount noxious gases that pollute the air. (Hayden and Shandra 582) Industry aside, there are many other ways technology has had a negative, ecological impact on the world. In the modern home, there are numerous high technology gadgets designed to make our lives easier and more pleasant. These gadgets range from the microwave to the electric kettle to refrigeration. One of the largest contributors to gases in the atmosphere are the gases produced by the combustion process used to produce energy. (Williams 36) In the United States alone, 83% of this energy comes from a combustion process. (Williams 36) The combustion process is an effective way to produce energy for a wide range sources. The negative aspect of the combustion process however, is the amount of harmful gases that it produces. These gases can have a devastating impact on the ozone layer and contribute to what is known as the "Greenhouse Effect". What this effect essentially does is add to the increase in the warm air that filters......

Drain, Washburn University, taylor.drain@washburn.edu Lakeisha E. Grier, Washburn University, lakeisha.grier@washburn.edu Wenying Sun, Washburn University, nan.sun@washburn.edu ABSTRACT In this study, we investigate the relationship between academic performance and the use of computer technology. We test our hypothesis which proposes that the growing use of electronic deveices is academically beneficial to high school students' standardized test scores and GPA. Our method of data collection includes both a survey of high school students in the Midwest area and an analysis of national SAT scores in the years before computing and in years with computing. Analysis of SAT archival data shows a negative correlation between scores pre-computing and scores post-computing (with computing influences), meaning that as scores before computing were decreasing, scores with prevalent computer technology are increasing. Our survey data also displayed a positive correlation between time spent on electronic devices for school purpose and GPA. Keywords: Computer Technology, Academic Performance, SAT, GPA, Electronic Devices INTRODUCTION The availability and use of electronic devices continues to grow.

...Gadget is a small mechanical or electronic device or tool, especially an ingenious or novel one. Origin Late 19th century (originally in nautical use): probably from French gâchette 'lock mechanism' or from the French dialect word gagée 'tool'. Sailors were the first people to talk about gadgets. The word started out in nautical slang as a general term for any small device or mechanism or part of a ship. This is the earliest recorded use, dated 1886: ‘Then the names of all the other things on board a ship! I don't know half of them yet; even the sailors forget at times, and if the exact name of anything they want happens to slip from their memory, they call it a chicken-fixing, or a gadjet, or a gill-guy, or a timmey-noggy, or a wim-wom.’ The word is probably from French gâchette ‘a lock mechanism’ or gagée ‘tool’. (Oxford Dictionaries) http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/gadget The history of gadgets spans as far back as humanity itself - since hominids began creating tools to make their lives easier. Humans have always created devices and appliances with specific practical purposes that were initially thought of as novelties, due to unfamiliarity with and initial unwillingness to accept the technology. Today, industry has augmented the creation of new gadgets, while certain retailers, including Brookstone and Richard Thalheimer's RichardSolo.com, specialize in popularizing them.

It includes increase in the number and extent of cities. It symbolizes the movement of people from rural to urban areas. Urbanization happens because of the increase in the extent and density of urban areas.

The concept “Urban Sprawl” means increase in spatial scale or increase in the peripheral area of cities. “Urban Sprawl” has its own drawbacks. The city and its infrastructure may not be adequately planned. Traffic is high with increased time needed for commuting.Essential services are not reachable within time.City administration becomes extremely difficult.

This labeling approach provides conceptual clarity while also incorporating both forms of communication. Clearly, texting/posting offers new communication channels that are frequently used by young adults to stay in contact with others. This ability to stay connected with others has allowed today’s college students to remain constantly connected to other people, something that was not the case even a decade ago. As a practical 236 J. H. Kuznekoff and S. Titsworth matter, instructors remain concerned that such connection to the social world disconnects students from learning, leading some to ban all electronic communication devices from lectures (Steinfatt, 2009). Both theoretical and empirical evidence supports this concern, suggesting that students potentially split their attention in ways that cause them to miss important details presented during class, an outcome that could have potentially damaging effects on their achievement (Kraushaar & Novak, 2010; Wei et al., 2012).
