The beginning of civilization allows the history to be recorded and spread to people. As one writer has written, “history begins at Sumer,” from the evidence found that the first constructed written source is the Sumerian, as we called Cuneiform script.

Response to Wendell Berry’s “Why I an Not Going to Buy a Computer.” Wendell Berry is a very good example of a writer who questions the status quo. In this case, the status quo is about consumerism and our dependence on technology. His apparently personal essay about why he refuses to own computer makes us think carefully about our relationship with this miracle machine. However, there are also some problems with his arguments. Let us have a look at his key points and the problems with them.
In fact, he would tell about how they should be realistic and understand human nature. Therefore, people would find him evil for saying such statements. Although, what could have affected Machiavelli to write such a controversial book? For this we have to look back in his life learning that he worked in politics for a long time, which affected him but how? Thus, we can bring the following question: How did Machiavelli’s political career influence the views he expresses in his book The Prince?
Both users and nonusers of Carmex will potentially take the survey because Carmex will not know who they are sending the survey to. A disadvantage of this method is that many of the households will not respond because they do not care about taking a survey for Carmex. Thus, a lot of surveys will have to be sent out in order to receive the required amount of feedback. The other option discussed is an online survey of Carmex Facebook likers. An advantage of this is most of the feedback will come from devote Carmex users who want their opinion to be heard.
Some people would argue that some ideas or images are simply too dangerous or radical to be displayed to the public. How can this be a sound argument, when the same people enjoy and actively reference their freedom of speech? Think about if influential books, articles, or movies were never published simply because they were too “indecent” or, dare I say it, too “thought-provoking”. Since when did people start sacrificing knowledge and intelligence for safety? It’s apparent that at least some people tend to disagree with censorship, recently being the Supreme Court.
History First use of numbers See also: History of writing ancient numbers Bones and other artifacts have been discovered with marks cut into them that many believe are tally marks.  These tally marks may have been used for counting elapsed time, such as numbers of days, lunar cycles or keeping records of quantities, such as of animals. A tallying system has no concept of place value (as in modern decimal notation), which limits its representation of large numbers. Nonetheless tallying systems are considered the first kind of abstract numeral system. The first known system with place value was the Mesopotamian base 60 system (ca.
During the Creation era the Egyptians were discovering ink for writing and building the first libraries (Tyndale, 1997).

The author admits that when goggling, he would sometimes, “sneak into other pages because of some attractive features or because of curiosity and forget about his work.” However, his opinion is baseless as internet - Google in specific - will actually sharpen the society’s knowledge and expound their level of thinking (Carr 533-541). The article also refers to Plato’s “Phaedrus,” part of the section that opens up counter-argument. It reminds us that various technological changes stretch far back–and that
In addition, a Japanese study found that children with cell phones won’t make friends with children that don’t have them. This article is very well-written because it presents the author’s real life experiences and backs up his determinations with facts. The article is also logical because it explores not only the impact of people’s technological obsession but also the message it sends. The author says technological obsession sends the message that, “Somewhere else there is someone who I care about more than you. I want to know what they have to say more than what you have to say to me now.” This addiction also has profound impacts elsewhere.
