traditions alive wi th technology. We should not ignore technology, because it can be our friend and support our way of life. the internet and the modern refrigeration techniques are being used to keep aliv e the traditional skills of producing salmon; it can now be ordered from, and de livered to, anywhere in the world. It is thought that technology developments in a country is the main reason for t he traditional skills and ways of life to die out , and it has become pointless to try and keep them alive. I so very agree with the statment . This can actuall y be seen in any country nowadays. In my opinion, we can approve the statment by taking a look at a former situatio n of any country and the apparent change that has occurred to the country nowada ys. For example , the country I live in "K.S.A'' as you can see , before 20 year s when the technology was very primitive and not yet developed , people were vey cling to there traditions . It was really uncommon to see people who do not car e or even care less about their traditional skills. Nowadays, the situation is clearly the exact opposite. It has become very common to see people care less about their traditions , and actually it has become ver y unusuall to see people gathering around to revive their traditions or to pass any of them to their young ones. That is why most of the new generation do not k now anything about their grandparents traditions. I think it is really depressing that by each day passes by it becomes even more difficult to try to keep or revive our traditions that it is believed that it is pointless to even try to hold on to any of our traditions. In conclusion , we should not allow this to continue and we should try to save w hatever traditions we are still holding on to , but we should not stop the devel opment of technology to do this , we can keep on developing technology and still keep our traditional skills and our wys of livng alive. Advantages and disadvantages of modern technology. Technology can be defined as science applied to practical purposes. Nowadays, wh en the rapidness of development and research is so impressive, it is easy to thi nk about the advantages of modern technology. Nevertheless some people argue tha t science can destroy mankind. It is also obvious that we are close on an era wh ere technology is limited only by our imagination. Therefore the most frequently asked question is: Does technology go the right way and will it save or ruin ou r civilization? It can be argued that modern technology makes life easier and more dignified for most of people. The first and the major advantage is that medical science is ve ry progressive and vastly available. Without the needed technology a lot of peop le would struggle with their health. In addition it saves many innocent lives.

Secondly, the advanced technology improves industry by making it more effective and, what is vital today, safer for environment.

Thus the speed of improvement is hug e and unpredictable. On the minus side there is weaponry which is the inseparable issue of the new te chnologies.
