Jenner found that the boy fell ill to cowpox but after recovering, he was immune to smallpox thus the method of vaccination was born. This discovery was important as it was an improvement on the previous method of inoculation. Inoculation involved deliberately infecting someone with the desired disease but death rates were extremely high as a result of this practise. However Jenner’s discovery of the smallpox vaccination meant that more lives were saved because there were fewer deaths associated with the vaccination technique and it became more popular than inoculation - eventually becoming a widespread method of disease prevention as it is still in use today. The factors of enquiry and science & technology played an important part in the build up to the development of the smallpox vaccination.
How did technology transform the urban landscape of the United States in the late nineteenth century? The late nineteenth century was a time of great change for the United States in regards to the urban landscape. These changes were so life-altering for people that we now know it as the Industrial Revolution, which is a change from hand and home production to machine and factory. New technology, such as steam and electricity, changed the way of lives for Americans as the people shifted from rural to urban living. The development of these technologies changed transportation, manufacturing, and even communication.
From the railroads in the past, we have learned that faster transportation is better. Everything we need travels by boat or train or plane because we understand that is one of the most successful forms of transportation. Bye replacing home-based workshops with factories we have been able to grow our production rates which in the long run put our selling rates high. By switching from hand tools to large machines we have also been able to cut our jobs down, which allows for more money in the pockets of the business men. The industrial revolution has helped the nation and economy grown so much over the time but we know, nothing is perfect.
Over consumption has led to many cures and medicines being created, and has made the world a better and safer place then it once was. The Buy Nothing Day would only hinder the progress that mankind has made in keeping the environment intact. The way of life in the 21st century has and will be defined by consumerism. Consumerism has lifted nations out of recessions and created millions of jobs and opportunities. The Buy Nothing Day is just a way for environmentalists to voice their theories about how to fix the environment.
Because of the revolution there was a rapid growth of cities and business. The working conditions for many workers were a disaster, but as time went on these conditions soon got better. Women now had a different role in society which may have included staying at home and handling the chores of the house, but it also including women finding jobs and it brought them one step closer to equality. Different economic theories were created as a result. One of the theories was radical and unrealistic and the other become the foundation for many progressive nations such as the
2 September 2010 Working in a Gold Mine was the worst job I have ever had. I was working there though a work-study program where I was to learn how to run heavy machinery. First of all the work was physically very hard and dirty. My shift consisted of 12 hours a day, five to six days a week. At times I had to move large rock piles from one place to another place that was about 10 feet apart, using just my hands and body strength.
It can be linked to other factors such as increased life expectancy and a decrease in birth rates that happened in the same time frame, which were also influential on the consequences of decreasing death rates. One of the reasons why death rates have decreased in the last 100 years or so is largely because of medical improvements that have been a consequence of technological advancements. These advancements in technology have allowed new treatments to be found to cure diseases that were previously incurable and deadly beforehand. This has also paved the way to new illnesses being discovered and cures being found for them, which also ties to medical improvements and the decrease in death rates. The introduction of the NHS in 1945 by the Labour government gave people, who previously were unable to access treatment for illnesses, free access to medical care when they needed it.
Since its declared independence in the late 1700s, the United States has become one of the most industrialized nations in the world. This was caused by major changes that occurred in society between 1890 and 1920. Social changes included the spike in gangs and tenements, along with changes in the role of African Americans Political reform also took place as a result of social change. Along with social and political change came economic change, which took the shape of legislation such as the Anti Trust laws, which increased exports in the United States between 1870 and 1920. Industrialization also caused an increase in urbanization.
Scientific management and time-motion studies created a greater knowledge of production. With this knowledge, factory workers produced goods at an outstanding speed. By 1930 60% of families owned cars. The mobility of cars created more consumption because goods could be transported without the use "1 of trains. The economic boom gave more people throughout the United States the opportunity to enjoy themselves.
The Inevitability of Negative Consequences of the Industrial Revolution The perception of the industrial revolution as a key factor in changing the way of life is a fair statement. It is termed a “revolution” because the changes it produced were great and sudden. This revolution first appeared in Britain in the 1700s, fostering attitudes toward capitalism and modern industry everywhere. New traditions replaced old traditions, machinery replaced people, and people moved to urban cities from rural areas; simply, the way of life had been changed forever. The industrial revolution introduced mass production and greater markets.
