What Is Genetic Engineering, Really?

Genetic engineering is the process of taking a gene from one living organism and placing the DNA from one gene into the cell of another gene. This produces new traits that the organism didn’t have before. By doing this, a person can create or produce traits in an organism, like plants that they want it to have that it otherwise wouldn’t. For example, in a plant that is grown for crops, a farmer could insert DNA of one plant into another so that it will produce a trait that he wants it to have, such as purple flowers. Genetic engineering is an art form and modification of the traits that the living organism already has. People have used this successfully on plants and animals, but they are now starting to use it for humans.

 

How Does Genetic Engineering Work On Humans?

 

Parents who are expecting a baby use genetic engineering to add traits to the baby that they want, such as blue eyes. Questions are arising as to whether this is moral and ethical or not. Some say it is “playing God” when someone adds traits and characteristics to a fetus instead of letting nature take its course. But people really want certain traits in their offspring, so they are willing to do what it takes to make sure they have a boy with blue eyes. Genetic engineering is not a new idea, but it is definitely growing in popularity among expecting parents. When they find out how easy it is to change one or more traits in their babies. Genetic engineering is taking on a positive effect in humans, however. It is being used to treat genetic disorders, and people are finding relief thanks to this breakthrough.

 

Gene therapy is still experimental, but how it works is; a new gene is added to replace the old diseased one, causing healing and relief in most people.

Genetic engineering has been used in lots of ways, and it is still under experimentation, but as we advance in science we will find more ways to use it.

There was the dot com bubble in the early 2000’s that had everyone wanting to quit their jobs to join some new and exciting startup company or dot com business. Information technology jobs have been around for a while but they were in demand because the technology was relatively new and it was difficult to know and understand how to go about managing the technology. As people have become more accustomed to the technology, many have wondered if the information technology industry is still growing.

 

Available Jobs

There are still available jobs in the industry and the need for people who know and understand technology well enough to interpret complex data and build models to monitor the company’s performance is still great.

The need is still out there and it seems to still be growing.

 

How to Go About Finding an Information Technology Job

Finding a job in information technology could be extremely easy if you know where to look or if you have the correct background to attract employers.

 

You might consider going into something like cloud computing to get a job. Considering the constant advances in technology, the industry is still growing strong and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

Technology Saves TV – Again

Are you a TV junkie?  Most people are these days.  Why?  The internet and dvr has made it easier than ever to stay caught up on your favorite shows.  And if you are looking for the perfect stress reliever, TV is just what you need.  Fortunately, with today’s technology, TV is even better.

 

Technology Makes It Easy

 

In the past, if you weren’t home for the 8pm TV show, you simply missed out.  TV aficionados had to plan properly to get in their shows.  This meant that they might miss out on a friend’s birthday party because the time clashed with the TV show.  Now, you can do both.  Technology provides flexibility with TV viewing.  You can watch anything, anytime, anywhere.

 

Online Viewing

 

When the TV world says anywhere, they mean it.  You can pretty much watch any show with an internet connection.  Take advantage of services like Netflix and Hulu Plus.  With a monthly subscription to these sites, you can connect at anytime and catch up on episodes from a few years ago.  If you don’t want to pay, you can always watch each show online every week.  They are usually uploaded within 24 hours of the scheduled program.   And some shows are even available to watch on your phone.  All you need is a simple app!

 

HD TVs

 

For the most technologically advanced viewing, invest in a good TV.  Long gone are the days of TVs with antennas.  Instead, you can watch TV that looks realistic with an HD TV.  Even better, most TVs are HD ready.  And they aren’t as pricey as they used to be.  This makes good quality viewing affordable.  We have technology to thank for amazing pictures!

 

Record More Than One Show At A Time

 

Finally, for the most advanced TV viewing, invest in a device that will record your shows.  DVRs have become standard with cable companies today.  They will help you record the shows you are interested in.  Often, you can even record from your phone when you are not home.  If this appeals to you, you might consider the hopper from DISH network.  It allows you to record up to 6 HD shows at the same time.  It’s everything the TV viewer could want, and more!

 

Make sure you are enjoying all of the advantages that come with technology today.  Thanks to TV, it is difficult to miss your favorite shows!
