Waste is indeed one of the growing problems in the country, has been one of the major cause of dilemmas and tragedies both in the past and up to the present time. To eliminate this, different municipalities have come up with a uniform solution to end this hoarding destitution: landfills; which have been the major cause of land depletion and sicknesses for folks who live nearby.

There are lots of technologies that have been invented in order to be of solution to the growing insolent waste problem. One of the examples is the technology brought by the Japanese people here in our country; where biodegradable waste materials are being processed to become environmental by-products. The main question here is: how about for non-recyclable waste materials?

The Biosphere Technology doesn’t exclude non-recyclable materials. It uses all kinds of wastes which serve as fuel for the biosphere process to generate electricity. Biosphere gasification technology is something that we harness in order to build a better world to live in, how: through a zero waste nation campaign.
What is Biosphere Technology?

The biosphere gasification technology or simply called biosphere technology is a kind of green technology that the biosphere machine uses to be able produce electricity. Biosphere technology is a process of turning waste to green energy in a cost effective manner. Biosphere technology is different from the other technologies that diminish waste. I came across also with a kind of green technology invented by the Japanese that transform waste to environmental by-products.

It is also a very good kind of invention but there is a flaw in it, only recyclable waste materials are to be used for the process. The good thing in biosphere technology is that it uses all kinds of waste materials for the process so there are no waste materials left to pack up landfills.

Biosphere technology uses the process of incineration that burns waste turning it to electricity. Everybody opposes the idea of burning tons of waste materials just to be able to diminish them. The answer is the gasification process. Biosphere gasification process is done in a limited oxygen environment that causes zero atmospheric emission. We all know that fuel price increase is also the number one problem that this world is facing. And for every process concerning technology, fuel is a very much vital source of substance to be used.

Biosphere technology uses a gasification process that uses waste as its fuel thus eliminating the use of overpriced fuel. It is like birds hit with just a single stone. Fuel problem is eliminated, waste is diminished plus a new form of renewable electricity is produced, what else could surpass this kind of technology.

Biosphere Technology is something to glee about. Waste being the number one unsolved problem of our environment doesn’t only affect the atmosphere but causes land depletion and fun gutter for the government. As we are all unaware about, to manage a single landfill, a municipality would cost for thousands of funds every day. And for some places that I have stumbled upon, I learned that to haul garbage to a designated landfill in other places it will cost hundreds of thousand for a single day; what a waste!

Biosphere technology is a process that diminishes waste in a cost effective manner turning it to electricity causing zero harm to the environment. It is done in limited oxygen environment therefore eliminating atmospheric emission. Biosphere gasification technology hopes to produce the electricity that will serve as glow to every light bulb of every home.
The innovative gasification process is set to change the world one city at a time. One day, optimistically, the electricity which will be coming from the biosphere machines will serve as glow to every light bulb of every home.

Technology is vital to the existence and competitive edge of any company. I believe that’s the great understatement of the year. Look at what technology allows us to do as compared to 30 years ago; now think back about five years. Companies continually leverage the capabilities of technology to gain that competitive edge in the market place and staying on the cutting edge of technology allows them to stay ahead of the competition. What about the small or start-up company? Leveraging the power and potential technology brings is just as important to the small and medium-sized business.

Management that excludes technology in their decision-making process could be making decisions that could prove costly in weeks and months to come. Knowing what technology to implement will affect your company’s ability to sustain itself in this present or future economy, here’s just a few examples how.

When management makes decisions, the decisions have an end result and that might be:

  • Increase Output
  • Expand the customer base.
  • Discover new revenue sources.
  • Increase profitability

Businesses would agree to the examples being used. The wrong decision (such as) would be to implement a financial application that will only experience latency when you need to add users or your data grows faster than expected increasing the time is takes to load it. It would be wise for any company deciding to move in the direction of the example given, to include their Information Technology Department in the decision-making process. To proceed is operating at a disadvantage with the possibility of implementing a solution you will outgrown as soon as it’s implemented.

Information technology professionals can guide and recommend to management possible solutions that are now used in like industries. Most technology professionals are familiar with Enterprise Resource Programs and could demo these for management. When management and technology departments function as separate entities in a company, your competitive edge and ability to meet the needs of your customers will be impacted by implementing wrong solutions.

Sustainability is the capacity to endure. Technology will give your company that capacity to do so, but you must stay current with the paces of technology. Companies that failed to embrace the internet or companies that were slow to implement opportunities the world-wide web provided could no longer sustain operations and closed.

Small companies that can not afford an Information Technology professional on their staff will find it difficult to compete, although, you can enlist the services of a college student or family member. However, they must be dedicated to helping you move in the right direction.

Knowing what technologies to implement is vital. Social networking is another series of technology platforms you can not ignore. Many large corporations are using well-known social network sites to keep in touch with and to discover new customers. Redundancy is a word familiar to technology departments because without it your company will lose thousands, if not millions when the technology fails and recovery takes days and not seconds; although seconds of down time can cost a company thousands, experienced technology professional can guard a company’s ability and capacity to endure and compete in this global economy.

As I observe humanity, moving in ever-faster and faster paces, racing to achieve ever more at dizzying speeds even as technology threatens to outpace our very mental capacity, something is amiss. Some deeply held idea that we seem bent on fulfilling, a frantic technologically powered promise, has been broken.

Whether we realize it or not, underneath all this amazing technology we are creating, is a subtle but powerful promise: that we can accomplish more, in less time, and thereby achieve a greater quality of life.

Oh, at first the idea is seductive. Let’s build a machine that can do the work in half the time! We can work in the morning and play in the afternoon. This works great in theory, except it is rarely practiced. No, once that amazing whiz-bang machine is built, it’s run 24/7, working employees to the bone, so we can produce a gazillion times more in a fraction of the time! By all rights there should be a lot more people loafing. Or at least, having a high quality of life. But are they?

How is it that our very lives are powered by machines that admittedly double in speed every 2-years, yet as a nation we are poorer than ever, more tired than ever, and less able to enjoy life as we know it? Who doesn’t walk around with more lines on their foreheads even as the world races by? Whose stress levels are lower thanks to the amazing advances in technology? I don’t know many.

Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a conspiracy afoot. Yes, really. As a society, our job is to care about each other and improve our quality of life personally and collectively, yet the very technology that has promised to provide this is doing just the opposite. In fact it’s aggregating wealth into fewer and fewer hands, and in a very real sense oppressing the rest, creating a new kind of upper class, a “technorati” if you will, that is able to harness technology to their advantage. And despite all the nifty perks of technology, are our lives really better?

Sure, we can point to increased efficiencies. Information can be transferred faster and in larger quantities than ever before, and computers can crunch numbers in ever-larger chunks.

Yet have we ever stopped to ask, is that always necessarily good? Computers enable people to make mistakes, faster. Think about that for a moment.

And besides simple “business gains,” and increased production, what are the actual tangible gains in human terms? Are employees happier, or are they working just as many hours as in 1960?

And another important measure: do people feel more connected to one another, with all the gizmos for interaction?

Ironically, technology tends to isolate people rather than bring them together. It promotes anonymity, and separation by encouraging us to interface over longer and longer distances, using bits of metal and plastic for the interactions. What happened to the warmth of a handshake? Looking someone in the eye? Something is getting lost in the digital revolution, and it’s in the intangible, and arguably more important, realm of our lives.

What about all the fancy speed of the technology; surely this is making the world more efficient, right?

Can anyone point to studies showing the increased production and sheer extra volume of goods, services, and foods, are actually being circulated to those in need? Is the human family as a whole benefitting from the excess, or is the wealth being concentrated by those in position to take advantage of the windfall?

Again, this answer is obvious; the human family as a whole is not reaping the benefits of the technological advances, as evidenced by similar or worse levels of poverty, literacy, living conditions, and general conditions of peoples throughout the earth. Sure, there are certain segments of the population that are benefitting, yet we see the makings of a “digital divide” in which the middle classes are disappearing, while the ranks of upper and lower classes continue to swell, in large part due to technology which aggregates more and more power into the hands of those at the top. This has always been a classic harbinger of trouble, for those that care to pay attention.

And don’t get me started on our amazing scientific advances in healthcare; what passes for healthcare, rightly should be labelled “sick-care” as it uses 2 main modes of operation: cutting and drugging. The human body does not generally suffer from lack of cuts, or chemicals. Many of the greatest bits of wisdom from thousands of years of human survival are being summarily censored, and even outlawed by those in charge. Don’t believe me? Tsk tsk. Google it. As the saying goes, “just because you are paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”

PEST, PESTLE or STEP is an innovative analytical business tool that is now being used widely all around the world today. This helps the managers and even the business owners in taking into account the external factors in the business and learning how they can impact the performance of the company both at the present time and in the future as well. With the PEST, STEP, STEEPLE, STEEPLED or STEEPLIED analysis, whatever you wish to call it, you will be able to understand the big picture of the environmental factors that have an effect on the operations and the overall condition of your company. When you understand what your environment is all about, you can definitely take advantage of the opportunities that might come your way and minimize the threats at the same time. This is truly important for all business since it is certainly difficult to detect both the threats and the opportunities that might fall into your organization’s way. PEST analysis can protect your strategic and business plans in order for you to gain a more detailed planning scheme. Now, PEST stands for political, economic, social and technological. We are going to give focus on the latter.

As we all know, technology is a vital component in today’s business world. Computers, pieces of software and such can provide great assistance for our everyday needs. If we are able to use technology to our own advantage, rest assured that our business can be more competitive. There are a lot of businesses that are established right now and most of them have the potential in beating us in the market. If you surrender to your rivals, you lost your customers and most definitely your credibility as an employer or business owner. So how do you use the technological PEST aspect to your advantage? It is important that you take a look at your organization and consider some of the most significant points.

The first is to determine whether technology enables you to create products or services that are useful and cost effective. You should also determine whether technology offers your business as well as the consumers so that you can have more innovative products or services including high technology mobile phones or even internet banking. There are some instances when new technologies can change distribution through books via the internet, auctions, flight tickets and others. Technologies also offer better methodologies on how companies communicate with their customers. This can be through banners and customer relationship management.

The technological aspect of PEST enables us to acknowledge the technological advances and how they can change the way businesses operate. In technological analysis through PEST, you will have to take a look into the maturity of the technology, the technology developments that are in competition with the ones that you are using, the research funding and even the technology laws or legislation. In addition to that, you have to think about the information technology which includes internet as well as local and global communications. Technological PEST is indeed helpful for businesses that make use of technology to make their projects and operations more effective.

Technology was coined from the Greek word technologia, which refers to a “skill” or an “art”. It simply refers to the utilization and cognition of techniques, tools or methods of organization. It could also mean the in-depth analysis of a concept or the proper knowledge of a field or subject area. The use of the word is relative, and can be applied to as many areas as possible. Mobile technology, car technology, medical technology, space technology and a host of other terms have been coined from the word. This is because the application of the word is limitless in the present world.
The impact of all the different technologies on humans is very significant. Technology started with the transformation of natural resources into elementary hand tools. Fire, for instance, played a great role in the advancement of prehistoric technology. Its discovery and control was the beginning of the many and has escalated to inexplicable heights like the internet today. It is pertinent to note that not all advancements in the field have fostered peace and made life easier. Nuclear weapons and their likes are of course, utterly destructive.

All the great economies in the world today depend on technology. It is safe to assume that they would not get this far but for technological advancements. There is also the issue of pollution and the depletion of natural resources as a result of processes that utilize technology. This reduces the quality of the earth and the value of the environment in general. Interestingly, recent studies have discovered that other primates carry out activities that point to an understanding of basic technology.

Lots of debates have arisen over the years and they have centered on the impact of technology on the society. Some movements totally condemn the concept with overwhelming evidence and conviction. Different scholars and philosophers read different meanings into it and extend its definition to cover a broad range of usage. This has made science, technology and engineering overlap in their meanings and applications. The history of technology also makes for interesting reading as it dates back to 10,000 BC. It has evolved from the usage of basic tools to the development of all the crucial sectors in the life of man. Medicine, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, communication and education, to mention a few, have benefited immensely from this mind-boggling concept.

The view on technology cannot be uniform. It always differs from scholar to scholar and from individual to individual. Where uniformity lies however, is in the fact that technology has come down a long, winding way, and that it is here to stay.
