The Progression of Technology?
Progression of Technology – The Future of Technology – Series
Technologies in development are changing our standards and quality of
living in many areas of our lives, normally not imagined. Think of all
the daily tasks that you perform, that require some piece of technology.
Ask yourself if the absence of this technology in your device or equipment
piece existed, would it affect the performance, quality or pleasure of experience?
If the answer is “yes”, then you can understand from firsthand experience
the importance of new technology, and it’s evolving application and integration.
Security and Technology
With the new development of technology, must also be a level of security to
ensure that businesses who associate with such technology, are not just protecting
their business safety, but also, their clients or customers personal information. T
his can come in the form of certain customer service platforms or software technologies,
that have already been introduced in many industries and businesses.
Such Industries as:
- Software and Computers
- Banking and Finance
- Online and Major Retailers
This is an important topic to touch on when discussing technology
development and advancements in business. This is because, a
huge parallel of user return, or repeat business, depends heavily
on the trust of the company in which they are doing business with.
Public Trust of Technology?
For example, if negative press should exist online about your business or
customer experience, this can destroy your production performance
and company reputation. This is an example of advanced technology,
such as the internet in this case, clashing with the public trust. Just like a
politician, bad press, if not controlled and monitored properly, can
be detrimental to online websites or ecommerce business sites,
and not to mention all the small business owners.
Online Business Types?
These types of online businesses, rely on positive user feedback to
grow their product and market reach. Consider all the online review
sites, and you will soon realize the importance
of this business ingredient.

Methods of Business Accountability?
There are methods of countering such negative press, which involves
Each case or example, may have varying factors, and require
different online tactics to negate any negative statements.
This is when you can use technology in the form of a communication channel,
to denounce or debunk any falsehoods or claims made against your business.
This is how technology integration in your business operation, can help not
only streamline the process, but provide a layer of insurance security.
This posting will cover new technologies for 2018! Since many
Americans leave to work each day in their vehicles, we decided to start with the
automotive and transportation industry.
Technology in Transporation Industry?
This industry has many new changes and technology advancements.
This only leads to newer and more functional platforms.
The first platform that will be examined,
is clean energy in the automotive and transportation industry.
Clean Energy and The Transportation
Industry Before we begin with what exactly is going on with clean energy
and auto making, let’s look at the definition of what clean
energy stands for.
Clean energy is renewable energy, without the toxic output into our environment.
Now that you have a good grasp of what clean energy is, let’s
look at how it influences in practice, with the below diagram from U.S. Energy
The list below will have 5 of the most commonly used renewable energy sources.
Review them to see if your business is operating with this new clean energy system.
Below are five commonly used renewable energy channels:
- Biomass—includes: o Wood and wood waste o Municipal solid waste o Landfill gas and biogas o Ethanol o Biodiesel
As you can see, there are many options to clean
energy resources for future use and investment.
Transportation and Clean Energy?
You can take this clean energy development information and apply
it to the actual formation of new vehicles as well. Why not, this
has become such a hot new trending market. This is in relation
to green movements, and environmental organizations, to social
media support and public support and influence.
According to UCSUSA, it is suspected that over 19 million
barrels of oil use go on daily. What does this mean to you, on a
personal and business level, if applicable? It should mean a lot to you,
since this daily level of oil consumption from Americans, costs more
than just gas money at the tank. This is the point of introduction,
where clean vehicles were introduced to the automotive marketplace.
Introduction of Clean Vehicles to American Highways – In part, clean vehicles were
made to reduce our oil dependency need from outside or foreign sources.
This can lead to reducing political struggles, where countries in high supply
of oil, are also in high supply of political conflicts, civil unrest,
and economic decline or, distribution and access.
We will not dive into the international affairs surrounding foreign politics,
as American innovation of technology is being addressed in this article
the piece, but the impact on a global scale will be noted.
However, future article references will show the foreign
or international relationship to technology and business.
This is a broad generalization since international and foreign
politics will not be examined in relationship to new advances
in technology. This topic is catered around the American related impact.
However, this is not to dismiss the importance of exploring, in further
detail with comparative analysis, international affairs in correlation to technology.
This further research and study will help to understand the technology global rat race.
This is because as countries compete to gain this advantage, so does the number of players.
As we explore the many ways it has transformed and reshaped American traditions,
from a grand scale to that of a local level.
So, join us, as we dive into more talk of technology!
Domestic Talks of Technology
This talk of technology will take us back to the soils of the United States,
as we explore the impact of removing our need from oil required
vehicles to more cleaner ones. This was to serve many purposes,
as we have explained, and cited from outside sources, UCSUSA.
To help reduce oil dependency from both national and foreign
resources, let us dissect the different layers to this infrastructure.
Government Flow of Green?
Now that you see the internal framework of our government system,
let’s explore the effects of oil-producing vehicles on our economy,
health, and business. Did you know that 30 percent of US carbon dioxide emissions
and 5 percent of the worlds global pollutions, comes from our transportation system?
Where in transportation is technology revealed in certain products?
This can be seen from the below transportation systems:
Now, take those numbers, and figure in the direct effect this
pollution transmission is having on our environment. It can
already be seen in today’s environment, unfortunately through global warming.
Global warming occurs with the rise of sea levels,
or the more frequent and more intense heat waves, felt across
certain parts of the United States. You can take this information
and address it to real life examples seen in today’s climate.
US: Global Warming Impact?
Climate change can be a question in the debate with some, however,
if the facts are reviewed only, without opinion, climate change can be seen
as a real, and definite event in our global system. Where can this be
witnessed, and documented for empirical proof of detection of climate change?
This can be seen with the gap reduction of temperatures
between the North Pole and those to the south.
With the winds weakening in the upper atmosphere, conditions are
being channeled in new and different ways. According to the NCDC, t
he average temperature of the air over the Arctic land, from last year,
was reported the second highest, after 2016. This temperature monitoring
has been conducted since the 1900’s, where 2016 fell into the highest
reported year from this start year. The readings and findings of this evidence
were coming back with 2.9 degrees of
Fahrenheit above the average from the years, 1981 to 2010.
This information was sourced at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Further Climate Deterioration – Further evidence of climate
deterioration is the amount of summer sea ice that exists in the Arctic.
The number has declined significantly more than 30 percent from the
past few decades as reported from several environmental agencies,
including, NCDC. The exposed open water and land, must adjust and
absorb heat, while accelerating the warming effect on the environment.
This trend, unfortunately, has been occurring more frequently and
quicker than even computer models can project.
Future forecasts and predictions assume that in the next few decades,
from the time of this article writing, 2018, having an ice-free
summer around the pole, is highly likely. – Pollution Creation – Now, oil consumption does not just
drive global warming, it also creates air pollution. In the United States, transportation
is the largest source or cause of this air pollution.
Just in the year 2013, it was reported, that half of the carbon monoxide
and nitrogen oxides, with approximately a quarter of hydrocarbons,
were contributed from that of our transportation use. Yes, us!
Transportation Use and Air Pollution
Yes, our daily drives on the highways and freeways to report to work,
or commute for social connections, are all factors for frequency in travel
time and use. The purchase of more vehicles per household, meaning,
now Americans per household, have more vehicles, is also another
contributing factor to this increase. The increased number of vehicles
and population growths in certain metropolitan areas are being felt
and documented. This translates into increased traffic congestion,
since in many highly populated areas, like Los Angeles,
are limited to more space for highway construction.
Pollution Solving Techniques?
So, other means of reducing the vehicle use on the California highways,
for example, come in the form of carpools or rideshares.
These two alternative options for transportation can reduce
these harmful emissions being transmitted into our air from vehicle use.
In addition, carpooling and ridesharing, as other alternative commuting
practices, such as walking, can all lead to indirect positive outcomes.
For example, let’s say that you reside in a very large populated city,
San Francisco for starters. If you were to be fortunate enough to find
work within walking distance of your home, you can remove the use of
your vehicle, since you would have that of your legs. This can have
great effects not just on the reduction of gas money, but also the
health and psyche of the person. Exercise has been reported, time
and again, how beneficial it is for not just the physical aspect of the
body, but also the mental and emotional harmony it sets off with the
formation and release of human chemical compositions, naturally.
This positive effect will not only show along around the waistline,
but the mood of people is also reported elevated. Just think of all the
exercise and fitness programs being created out of the industry of health.

Health Benefits of Alternative Transportation
You can definitely see all the health benefits that have
alternative transportation methods can have on not just your
budget but also your health. Let’s go even a little deeper with
the healthcare issue of pollution in our air, andthe great reason
to be concerned with progressive technological innovations
in this industry. This is because, air pollution has serious health
consequences for the public. Air pollution has been reported
to cause an increase incidence of respiratory ailments.
Some of these ailments include:
Now that we have looked at the individual consequences air pollution
has on the masses, let’s look at how it can affect your bottom line.
Yes, air pollution can contribute to your financial outcome,
depending on your transportation and commuting distance.
