History 4 – Lesson 15 Modern Construction

Modern building tools, for example the crane, have made architecture and building much more advanced. One reason I think that is because without cranes how could you lift building materials up really high like you must to build a skyscraper. Or imagine cutting enough wood to build a modern house with a hand saw. It would be so much easier to use an electric saw. It still might take awhile but it’s better than a hand saw. My second reason is that with modern tools we can build more much quicker. We’re able to build a large Bridge almost in less than a year. And that’s a very short period of time to build a bridge. My final reason is that with the new building technology that we have we can build better supports and build more interesting shaped buildings. For example, the Seattle Public Library. 

Modern building tools have changed the life of everyone because it makes building much easier. It makes it so we are able to build bigger and taller structures, and it makes it so we can build more interesting shaped buildings.

History 4 – Lesson 10 Weapons

Military inventions from all the way back to when people were using stones to smash each other in the head, to nuclear bombs have changed the outcome of War. For example in World War II if nuclear bombs were not a thing the war would have gone on for a very long time. Or when we came up with the gun if that never happened we would probably still be using swords.

VA-178-Special Edition - The Austrian Medieval War Sword – Valiant ...

Think about it like putting one team against another but only one has swords and the other one has guns. Who do you think would win? My opinion is definitely that the team with the guns would win. Even going back to one of the earlier lessons, the lens could be a very powerful weapon. It’s basically a laser.

History 4 – Lesson 5 view of time

Having a cyclical view of time versus a linear view of time might make you more pessimistic about the future.  A cyclical view of time is a view of time where you believe that the world is just going to continue going in circles from chaos to order and back to chaos and then order and just continue for eternity. Having a cyclical view of time makes you less motivated to work hard for a better future because you think that the future is just going to be back to chaos. A linear view of time which is a view of time where you believe that the world will have a beginning, a middle and an end will motivate you to work hard for a better future while you still exist.
