The application of knowledge, skills, and resources to solve human problems and extend human capabilities. It is an applied scientific study of the human-made world. Technology can be broken into the following nine applied sciences or core technologies. These core technologies are the foundation of every technology system.
THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF TECHNOLOGY
The technology of using, adapting, and altering organisms and biological processes for a desired outcome.
A hybrid is the offspring of two plants (or animals) of different varieties, breeds, or species. The hybrid has characteristics of both its “parents”.
NAMING HYBRID BIG CATS
Only those hybrids which have been assigned names are listed. The usual convention is a "portmanteau word" comprising first part of male parent's name then second part of female parent's name (occasionally first part of male parent's name then first part of the female's name). Complex hybrids use the first part of the male parent's name followed by the original hybrid name.. The number of hypothetical hybrids is extensive.
Lion Tiger Liger Tawny, golden and white forms.
Tiger Lion Tigon Tawny, golden and white forms.
Lion Liger Li-liger More lion-like.
Lion Tigon Li-tigon More lion-like.
Tiger Liger Ti-liger (tig-liger) More tiger-like.
Tiger Tigon Ti-tigon More tiger-like.
Genetic Engineering gives organisms traits they never had naturally. One way is by altering the organism’s normal genetic code. Another way is by moving one organism's DNA into another.
Cloning is the process of making a genetically identical organism through nonsexual means.
The following three types of cloning technologies: (1) recombinant DNA technology or DNA cloning (2) reproductive cloning
(3) therapeutic cloning
Controlled environment agriculture (CEA) integrates mechanization, computer-control and advanced sensors, intensive management of nutrition and pests, and any of a number of structures to develop highly productive, high-quality crops.
Hydroponics is often defined as "the cultivation of plants in water." Research has since determined that many different aggregates or media will support plant growth; therefore, the definition of hydroponics has been broadened to read "the cultivation of plants without soil."
Aquaculture is the rearing of fish, shellfish, or plants in water under controlled conditions.
Prevention refers to lowering the risk of disease.
This is largely because the most common diseases in developed nations today are chronic disease -- like heart disease and cancer. And chronic diseases tend to be caused by a combination of many different factors, some of which are under a person's control (like diet), some of which are out of person's control (like age), and some of which are still unknown. With so many factors driving risk -- only a portion of which can actually be changed -- the realistic goal of prevention becomes lowering the risk of disease, not eliminating it.
To identify a disease or illness by the signs and symptoms.
One goal of treatment is to cure disease, but when a disease is unknown or incurable, the goal is to relieve symptoms such as pain.
Gene therapy is a technique for correcting defective genes responsible for disease development.
Tissue engineering is the development and manipulation of laboratory-grown molecules, cells, tissues and organs to replace or support the function of defective or injured body parts.
New surgical tools and techniques have been developed. The provide more effective treatment, with less pain and faster recovery, than traditional surgery.
That branch of medicine which deals with that artificial replacement of missing, diseased, or injured body pats.
The technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting, and getting work from electrical energy.
Circuits (parallel & series)
Radio & Television
The technology of using fluid either gaseous (pneumatics) or liquids (hydraulics) to apply force or to transport.
The technology of producing, altering, and combining materials.
Strength of shapes
The technology of putting mechanical parts together to produce, control, and transmit motion.
The technology of producing light; controlling light; and using light for information collection, processing, storage, retrieval, and communication, and using light to do work.
Bar code readers
The technology of putting parts and materials together to create supports, containers, shelters, connectors, and functional shapes.
Post and Beam
The technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting, and getting work from heat energy.
