According to Huan Tan the Han used the water to make inventions because he said, “Water power was also applied (pestle and mortar)”. Although they both used water to build inventions the Romans built their inventions on a large scale while the Han built theirs on a small scale. The Han treated the lower class with respect while the Romans were very selfish and did not really care about the lower class. The reason the Han respected the lower class was because they followed Confucius’ teachings and He once said “The government is to the people as the father is to the son”. The Romans on the other hand were very selfish and Cicero said, “Vulgar and unbecoming to a gentleman are all the jobs hired workers take on” right here he is downgrading the workers because he is
In his first section Paul says that “It is universally acknowledged that education is the key to economic success.” He is actually just stating that to make a generalization of most of the worlds thoughts on education and job success, because right after he makes that statement he goes on to say that “what everyone knows is wrong.” Krugman says that the growing technology and use of software is extremely cheaper than the “old fashioned” way of doing things. Such as using armies of lawyers and paralegals to do legal research. Basically, technology is reducing demand for highly educated workers. Another example he uses are engineers. He says technology is eliminating the need for them because you can make chips much simpler with a computer than a human worker.
Han China and Imperial Rome Han China (206 B.C.E – 220 C.E) and Imperial Rome (31 B.C.E – 476 C.E) were the two premier and powerful civilizations of their time. As the two great civilizations of their time, Imperial Rome and Han China shared many similarities such as their powerful military machines and the advanced architecture they utilized to support their society. They had just as many differences however in how the government was structured and how they each viewed religion. One aspect of Han China and Imperial Rome were we can see a stark contrast between the two civilizations in in the government. Although Han China and Imperial Rome's method of political control was alike in their use of a centralized government, they were different in the sense of the roles of citizens in the government and the techniques for keeping the lower classes happy.
The governing authorities again like to use culturally significant figures in the tales of innovation and invention and discovery. Even with such advanced politics and thought, a class distinction still persisted, and though they had seen the benefit of all this technology, there were those in the upper class who felt it was beneath them to use such tools in any way. T Innovation was of great value to both the Han and Romans. The Han placed a higher attribution to culturally relevant creators. For example, Huan Tan, an upper-class Han philosopher wrote in New Discourses (Document III) of an emperor of myth inventing and refining the pestle and mortar for all people.
3. Yi Yin would not like the fact that modern politicians often promise “innovative answers to the challenges of tomorrow.” Yi Yin thought that rulers should follow the examples of good past leaders and conform to the wisdom of the ancients (“Human Record” P. 34, ll. 5-6 & 23-24). Yi Yin would also dislike modern politicians attempts to appear youthful. In Yi Yin’s eyes the aged and virtuous were to be the idols of society and deeply respected.
Han and Roman Technology DBQ The Han and Roman societies had varying views about technology. The Hans however recognized technology as a much more valuable idea while the Romans saw it as something not as necessary. In document 1 a Han government official wrote to local officials telling them to establish more water conservation offices. He wrote in detail how he wanted it to be organized such as the scheduling of waterway inspections and hiring workers experienced with the “ways of the water.” This shows that this Han government official favored technology because he believed that the water conservation offices would be beneficial. Document 2 is written by Huan Guan, another Han government official, stating his views on the iron tools used to make salt and iron.
Sinicization is one of the most common doubts by historians who study about Qing Dynasty. Question like ‘How did the Manchu who were outnumbered by Han Chinese people managed to conquered and succeeded in ruling China for so long?’ lead one to wonder whether one of the reason for their success is sinicization. This doubt about sinicization has brought two historians to debate and attack each other opinion publicly. According to historian Ping Ti Ho, sinicization is undoubtedly the key to the success of Qing Dynasty but historian Evelyn S.Rawski did not agree about sinicization and argues instead that Qing was quite a multiethnic empire. In Ping Ti Ho 1967 paper, he stated 5 reasons why Qing Dynasty is one of the most important dynasty.
Sam Nolan’s mental model is that technology can not only save money and time, but help in supporting teamwork, information sharing. However, the new vice president Tom Carr prefered to talk face to face rather than communicate based on “this Internet obsession” which would blow over in a few years anyway. 2. What are some of
Walden’s Pond & Civil Disobedience Short Answers • To Thoreau, simplicity was more than a mode of life, it was a philosophical ideal. It was the second method he implied to resolving dissatisfaction in one’s possessions.
