    Expanded circulation found in technologyThe environmental friendliness of the leaders and leaders of the seven industrialized countries (G7) at their last summit has a global resonance, especially as it can constitute a prominent tool to confront climate change and reduce the rates of global warming.Recently, "Sinopec", one of the largest Chinese oil companies, announced the launch of a projectCarbon capture and storage in eastern China, expected to be the largest of its kind in the region, comes just weeks after the announcement of several US carbon sequestration initiatives.

    Although some industrial carbon sequestration initiatives date back to the 1970s and 1980s, according to the International Energy Agency, the largest expansion of this technology is associated with the new millennium.The letters "CCUS" are usually used to describe the process of sequestering carbon dioxide, one of the main causes of global warming, and reusing it or storing it, an acronym for Carbon Capture.Utilization & StorageAccording to Vox, the process is simply based on employing various chemical means to extract carbon dioxide from industrial sites, such as cement, iron and steel plants, and coal-based power plants.

    The problem I am writing about is light pollution which is a very major problem today. This is such a problem that not many people take notice of. The disappearance of stars from the night sky is an indication to huge amount of light pollution in that particular area. The three questions to help me find out about this would be:
    1. What causes it?
    2. How much damage has it done already and in which certain areas?
    3. What is harmed through this?
    Since I found this problem quite disturbing enough, I researched about the questions and found certain answers to them. The answer to the first question would be man-made lights or street lights etc. People are so dependent on artificial lights that they fail to comprehend the beauty of the natural one. These lights are polluting the sky in such a way that now very few stars can be seen in the night sky. These artificial lights hamper the natural cycle and as a result pollute the sky. The answer to the second question would be that light pollution has already done a huge amount of damage in certain parts of the world. Singapore is known to be the most light polluted country in the world. Lastly, the answer to the third question would be that light pollution is said to harm human health and can cause diabetes, obesity etc. All those would be the introduction and basics of light pollution. Coming to the idea of a technology to solve this would be to invent such man-made lights which would keep the natural light-dark cycle of day and night going. In this way, we wouldn't have to sacrifice artificial lights for natural ones and can also witness the beauty of the night sky at the same time. Unfortunately, this technology might not work for many people because of its limit of affordability. So, the people from poor families might not use this and all can go back to square one.

      A good point is that you touched on this subject, but I want to ask you a question, but you should use your problem-solving skill to answer my question ,in your opinion how can poor countries, despite their weak economy, exploit the outside world in order to be able to apply this technology in the country?

        Poor Countries can apply this technology by establishing relation with the richest and capitalist countries .As for their resources 'there are many solutions to exploit the resources in the country 'recycle and manufacture them 'even at the request of the richest country and most importantly 'there is a goal they seek to obtain and not to lay hand on each other and wait for the advance ment of technology with the help of Countries they can skip the most difficult step in achieving their goal and support technology projects in their Countries even if by the least.

    The problem is climate change

    ** The first question: What is the main cause of climate change?

    ** Second question: What are the few causes of climate change?

    ** Question 3: Will crop production become more difficult.?
    /// The answer to the first question::: Humans are the most responsible for climate change
    //// Answer Question 2: Burning fossil fuels Greenhouse gases are the most few causes of climate change
    ////The answer to the third question:: Yes, because climate change affects crops

    **//"As for the technique that must solve the problem according to Nadhari’s point of view, nature must be exploited in an appropriate and humane manner so that it is not said that man is the enemy of the environment!!

    && No, because you must follow these steps

    **First, we must admit that technology in itself cannot solve societal problems. Technology, for example, cannot solve the problem of poverty or the large disparity in income rates. For example, in the past five decades, the Internet, search engines, social networks, mobile phones...etc.

    **Second: The problem lies in the belief of many that technology is the solution and this is wrong. Technology is just a tool or an auxiliary factor. If we want to fight the problem of wage inequality or poverty rates, we must ask: What are the causes of this problem? Is it corruption? Is poor education the problem? If it is corruption, how can technology be used to reduce corruption? How can technology be used to improve the educational process? And so on.

    Technology will not work with everyone, because there are already low-income countries, which will not be able to buy these technological inventions, for example, the two countries of Palestine cannot even meet the needs of the people, so how can you buy expensive technological inventions, and even if they buy them, this will cause problems in the economy And it will also cause the people to rise up and revolt against the government, and this will only bring about division and civil wars for the people. Secondly, to apply new technologies in rural and rural areas with the aim of facilitating their lives or solving environmental problems and others, which will not be accepted. They are accustomed to their simple, modest, environmentally friendly lifestyle far from the noise of cities, so how do you want them to deal with a new lifestyle when they chose from the beginning to live the opposite of this pattern, third: Before coexisting with technology, we must educate the people about its importance and how it will change This requires time and strategic thinking, and will also cost money, and this means excessive expenses for the state because the state will not be able to pay very large sums of money for technologies and technological inventions and Also, educate the people about how our lives will become with it and its importance. From my point of view, technology is a double-edged sword. Not all peoples will use it in a good way and it can affect teenagers in negative ways: they will only deal with machines and robots, and this is not good, as This may cause them to become lazy and rely on technology that will meet all their requests while sitting and doing nothing, and this will only create a failed generation, which will not benefit itself in the future, so countries should apply technological techniques that solve environmental problems or global issues, Not in order to meet the needs of the individual without doing any physical effort, and also this will cause him health diseases, that is, this will also cause a high percentage of patients, and thus the state will suffer from the number of deaths that will exceed the number of births and the state will suffer from social and health problems

    After researching,One of the problems in the world is Ghana in Africa.Kids need to work in a place where there are snakes and it is dangerous(collecting coco beans).The new technology can be a robot doing the work for them and the robot can not get hurt by anything there.But this technolgy may not work as,some people may make it alot of money so they will need to work alot to get the money to get it and the robot may need batteries.

    Technology has helped in solving problems such as human problems, as technology has contributed to solving various human problems, especially at the present time, due to the rapid state of change that it is going through related to the amount of existing information. As a reason for increasing food production, it must be pointed out to the applications it provided to the field of health care and the many positives that emerged from it, and many other technological means have developed human lives and helped them save time and effort.

    The problem is that people are exposed to various viruses that cause diseases such as the Corona virus Can a person deal with all detected and undetected viruses? What are the procedures that must be followed to get rid of this virus infection? How can these viruses be prevented and humans protected? My idea is to put a chip in the human body programmed to refuse entry to any foreign body, as this prevents infection with these viruses.

    My problem I am writing about is: Physics

    The latest scientific report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change explores changes in the Earth's climate in every region of the world and across the entire climate system. Many of these changes have not been seen in hundreds, if not hundreds of thousands of years. Some of these changes, such as the continuous rise in sea level, are irreversible for hundreds or even thousands of years

    My three questions to help me learn more about them are:
    1- Can the report clearly state that the role of human influence in the climate system is indisputable? It also shows that human actions still have the power to determine the future course of climate?
    2. How many members have agreed to the first working group of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change?
    3- How long will global temperatures take for how many years?
    My idea of ​​a new technique that could help solve the problem is:
    It also shows that human actions still have the power to determine the future course of climate, pointing to the significant and sustained reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to limit climate change. The benefits of air quality will be realized quickly

    Technology occupies great importance in terms of facilitating communication between people, as it effectively contributed to making the big world look like a small village, and this was achieved thanks to the means and methods that technology provided to people to enhance and facilitate communication among them, so these means varied from fixed and mobile phones, to reach The Internet and its associated ability to communicate with each other across different continents and countries in a matter of seconds.

      climate change is one of the most pressing and complex challenges of the era and to preserve the planet's ecosystem 'and we must achieve a sharp reduction in the emissions of carbon dioxide while ensuring the existence of the population. no on has ever this doubted the existence of problem. If the way to deal with remains Our consumption and other see that technological in innovation is the only way to solve this problem 'but can human creativity and innovation really limit the world?
      Yes' technological innovations can solve this problem 'and we can play our role as consumers by reducing our carbon intensive activities especially lowering temperatures 'appliances.
      Heating and buying local food 'bat changing behaviors 'especially on global scale requires along time and depends on complex interactions between many factore to inquire about the supply chain for their products.

    Air pollution is a dangerous problem in my country .When I thought about it, I said we have to find a solution for it because it affects people's lives .Additionally, it causes many difficult diseases and deformities for young and old people.Thus , making a quick decision would be better to avoid theses troubles. As a result, I believe that making a device capable of absorbing the pollution resulting from factory smoke and purifying it of impurities is really effective.

    The problem I'm writing about is climate change.
    My three questions are: Where in the world does it affect most? Can we make it colder to stop it? Will it change Britain in any way?
    The answer to my first question is the Arctic and the Antartic but in the future it may affect africa and Asia.My next answer is no but we can slow it down by stopping big factories and driving less. My last answer is not very much but farmers in England may be impacted.
    An idea for a new technology that could solve the problem is a factory that makes all the same things as normal but it has speicial pipes that run underground that are full of electricity so it will not let out smoke.
    This might not work because if the people leflt and new people came they might extend the factory and make it deeper then they will get electrified.
    This would work well for some people because then they will feel good about making things and not affecting climate change.

    *Unavailability of the fuel needed to operate power plants
    *Excessive use of electricity
    *The high population density of the Gaza Strip
    3-The use of wind and solar energy to generate electricity

    The problem I want to talk about is the spread of plastic pollutants, which are one of the biggest pollutants to the environment, and the traditional ways to get rid of them, such as burning them, are significantly harmful to the climate.
    My three questions that will help me learn more about this problem

    1 Do all countries have this problem and countries that have this problem have you taken measures against it??

    2 Since we use plastic on a daily basis and it has become one of the basic materials in our lives, can we replace it with other materials??? Will it be accepted by the community?

    3. Can reused plastic be used more than once???

    While searching for answers to these questions, I discovered that plastic is divided into two parts: recyclable plastic and non-recyclable plastic, and plastic can take 500 years to degrade
    Imagine with me that the water bottle that you may have next to you or the bag of chips you hide to eat while watching a movie may take 500 years to decompose.
    I thought of a new technique to solve this problem
    Using modern technology, nanoscience and modern science, we can invent a new type of water-soluble and recyclable plastic, thus we found a way to dispose of the plastic in an environmentally friendly way, and society will accept it.

    “The problem I am writing about is the noise and chaos that exists in public places,

    My three questions to help me learn more about it are...
    1) What is clutter and noise??
    2) What is the source of the chaos and noise??
    3) What are the consequences of noise and chaos on the individual and society??

    While searching for the answers, I discovered...: Clutter and noise are unpleasant, loud noises that irritate the ear and hurt the head. Its sources may be the horns of cars and trucks, or huge construction machines, or the sound of machines in factories, or the screaming of people or children, and the results are major accidents and injuries, chaos in the state and the way it is governed, causing inconvenience to patients and students of science.

    My idea for a new technology that could help solve the problem is ... to create a device that is implanted in public places that absorbs sound
    The one who senses that there is chaos or incomprehensible speech and deletes and absorbs it and prevents it from reaching other places (works to limit the annoying sound in one place)

    Technology has an important role in solving problems, as technological development has helped in many daily areas, as tools and devices have been invented that have made life easier, faster and better. For example, technological development has contributed to creating faster ways for individuals to communicate with each other and from around the world.

    The technological innovation system is a concept in the scientific field of innovation, explaining the nature of technological change and its rate. The technological innovation system can be defined as a "dynamic network of agents who interact in a particular economic / industrial area under a certain institutional infrastructure and participate in the establishment, dissemination and use of technology"

    The problem lies in believing many that technology is the solution and this is a mistake, technology is just a tool or an assistant agent, if we want to try the problem of disparity of wages or poverty rates should ask: What is the cause of this problem? Is it corruption? Does education are the problem? If corruption how can technology be used to reduce corruption? How can technology use to improve the educational process? And so on. If the first step to resolve a socio-making problem, for example, if education is one of the causes of poverty rates as a result of the unemployment result (the employer will not employ someone who does not understand the required specialization). To prepare its ability to focus on the proliferation of social networks that only need quick reading for a few and this means that the educational process needs to be changed to these changes in new generations and this comes before even changing the content of the curriculum. Here comes the role of technology that is given information The road is a short lecture that the student can listen to it and return it when I needed this and by computer programs that are given student questions that are graduated in their difficulty when the student answered the correct answer and then determines the topics that the student did not understand and explain to his questions and then ask him again and so ... This method The new education may not receive the first matter of society, which is based on traditional exams and a family just interested in degrees "because we are a certificate country" ... here comes the role of social scholars The consciousness of the family and society ... if he helps technology solve community problems you first need a society willing to advance (ready to advance, not as willing and enough!) This does not come only with the help of social and education scientists and psychology.

    The title of this article question is not easy to answer! Sometime might say technology solves community problems should not see great progress in medical devices, detachable and treatment methods should not see the great progress in transportation .. etc. On the other hand, you will be merciful to the imaginary days when the family meets on the dining table and exchanges of their news rather than all of them are busy given his face on Facebook or watching a video on YouTube, but technology may be a reason for the destruction of the world not to see the deadly deadlocks ? Do not you see the outbreak of counterfeit news and rumors in social media is a great background? The third side may take caution and say that technology is a tool we can use to solve problems or use them to make problems! Here comes the question, which is trying to answer: What are the problems that can be solved using technology? This is also not an easy question, we have previously started talking about the world of technology and his relationship with science and then we talked about another article on the influence of technology on the labor market. Here we find that how much technology affects the reaction of society ... how is it? First we must recognize that technology themselves can not solve community problems, for example, you can not solve the problem of poverty or large disparity in income rates, for example in the past five decades, internet and social networking and mobile networks and mobile networks.

    The problem I am writing about is the high rate of unempolyment among university graduates which reaches approximately 60%.

    The three questions that could help me solve the problem are
    1) Why did the nimber of unemployed graduates increase?
    2) what are their professions they graduated from?
    3) How will we help them to find jobs?

    My idea of ​​a new technology that can help solve the problem is to train university studwnts to work online. Having a home job will provide them with acceptable amount of income for living. This would save their daily transport expenses, time, and effort. It is also recommended to make local and international agreements with companies.

    To conclude, a special technical system must be invented that cannot be hacked. Thus, only graduates have the opportunity to work and put a password for each person. This technology will not work with everyone because it will achieve a high level of privacy and safety.

    One of the problems facing the world is climate change and its volatility, which has harmed carbon sequestration. It is a big problem that people suffer from, which is the recycling of carbon dioxide gas to be able to deal with huge amounts of gas emitted into the atmosphere, and as we mentioned that it is one of the most important reasons The problem of carbon sequestration, climate change and global warming
    The main problem that the idea of ​​recycling carbon dioxide may face is that it is a compound and that it is very stable and because it is stable, it needs large amounts of energy to turn into a chemical compound of another kind and to be able to solve this problem we must use a catalyst and an assistant in which the necessary energy can be reduced The process of converting carbon dioxide into another chemical compound
    One of the strong and real challenges that if societies overcome, life will be easier and import and export stronger is to convert carbon dioxide into liquid fuel, meaning that it converts gas into liquid with great success. The use of carbon dioxide emitted from burning fuel, and we have found one of the solutions to confront the emission of that gas
    And it's not far away or a difficult thing that is difficult to solve because there are people who are looking to learn how to convert carbon dioxide gas into a liquid fuel known as "gasoline."
    It is something that some have come close to discovering, and the distant one will be near after that

    Air pollution is all around us. We can see air pollution indoors, outdoors, in cities and in the countryside. It affects all of us, whether we realize it or not. For a long time, we took the air we breathe for granted. There was air, smell, cold wind, hot air.

    But recent research is beginning to shed light on some troubling aspects about what the air around us really contains, and how it affects our bodies. And the more we learn, the more we realize that this primary source of life on this planet needs serious care. Without air there can be no life, but breathing polluted air leads us to a life full of disease and premature death.

    Now that we know how air pollution affects and harms us, there is no excuse for not taking action to stop it. Here are five great reasons to reduce and eliminate air pollution from our lives, my three questions to help me learn more about them 1 What are the harms of air pollution? 2 What are the causes of air pollution? 3 What is the solution to the problem of pollution? Air pollution damages the respiratory system, including emphysema, irritates the lining of the respiratory tract, irritates the eyes, reduces the body's immunity, harms the immune, nervous and endocrine systems, causes air pollution, and kills about 7 million people annually around the world. . Causes of air pollution are natural causes such as dust, fires, animals and plants, fossil fuel emissions, volcanic residues and volcanoes, which result in a number of toxic gases such as sulfur and chlorine and some particles such as ash particles. The solution to the pollution problem is to do more on many levels to reduce the problem of air pollution. It can be practiced at the individual level to reduce this phenomenon: reducing air pollution from the combustion of transport fuels, by using public transport instead of private cars, as well as encouraging the use of bicycles and walking. Reduce the number of times you drive by doing all tasks at once. Regular maintenance of the vehicle by following the manufacturer's instructions for routine maintenance, such as: changing the oil, filters, checking tire pressure, etc. Take care to avoid gasoline spills when filling up your car, garden equipment, or any other gasoline-powered appliance. Use a washing machine or dishwasher when you have enough clothes or dishes. Use eco-friendly cleaners, water-free paints, and other solvent-free paints.

    I have a big problem!! It's hard to find someone who hasn't uttered this sentence even once in his life, everyone has problems, everyone is worried about it, but I thought about all the people in the world? I wondered what is the problem that the whole world can say: “We have a big problem”?? What problems does our world face today? Have you ever asked the people around you, “What is the biggest problem in the world today?” Well. If you do that, surely you will get many different answers, we now have many issues to face, and there are a lot of things that disturb every population in the world today, yes, we have to think about solving the problems, but in order to solve the problem, we need first To identify and know what are those problems facing our world today. Drug abuse is considered the first global problem, and it comes first in the list of the biggest problems facing the world today!! A large number of young people are exposed to substance abuse, and there can be different reasons for a person to come up with drug abuse, peer pressure, family issues or wanting to experience a different feeling, or experiencing significant psychological stress and trauma, or having a mental illness such as depression, or Exposure to physical or sexual abuse, and also the inability to communicate with friends and relatives of the person, and similar things can be a reason for developing this bad habit. Drug addiction is considered a social stigma, because of the great harm it has on the person, his family around him, and the society in which he lives. There are solutions to stay away from drug abuse, including: - 1- Knowing the stimuli and stimuli of addiction
    It is very important to understand yourself well at this time, what motivates you to use drugs and the people who help you to use it, knowing the stimuli and stimuli of addiction is the first step on the way to stay away from drugs.

    2- Doing different activities and staying away from free time
    Occupying the time with some useful work as much as possible, and doing family and work matters, and staying away from the void is one of the most prominent drug solutions that help to leave it.

    Investments are pouring into carbon capture technologies as companies and governments look for ways to tackle global warming that is already causing devastating weather events.

    The world's largest plant to capture carbon dioxide from the air and turn it into rock was inaugurated in Iceland earlier this month. This station - which bears the name "Orca" - is the result of a collaboration between the Swiss company "Climeworks" for direct-air carbon capture plants, and the Icelandic Carbfix project. The plant is expected to capture 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually.

    Crude carbon dioxide captured from the air is used to produce carbon-free, renewable fuels. Claymorex cooperates with many projects in this field, such as P2X, one of the Copernicus projects, for energy transitions. Hydrogen and methane, fuels, chemicals and bioplastics.

    According to an International Energy Agency report, there are about 15 direct-to-air carbon dioxide capture plants in Canada, Europe and the United States. But the technology to capture carbon from the air is still very expensive, with carbon sequestration costs ranging between $100 and $1,000 per ton, according to the agency's report. Deploying carbon capture and storage plants requires government support through grants, subsidies, and tax breaks.

    The problem I am writing about is population growth and its impact on water, as the world is complaining about water scarcity It was suggested that technology will contribute to water purification projects, where it turns the water of the fountains into semi-drinkable water. There are power plants that are placed underwater and underground, and gardens are built over them I expect that the rich countries will be able to implement this technology, while the poor countries will continue to suffer and suffer

    The problem I'm writing about is air pollution.
    My three questions to help me find out more about it : ( What are main causes of air pollution?), ( How are humans polluting the air?) and ( How does air pollution affect our health?).
    In researching the answers, I have found out that: the main causes of air pollution are burning of fossil fuels and wild fires. Humans pollute air by spraying fumes from spray cans, chemicals, airplanes and power plants. Air pollution affects our health. It increases the risk of respiratory infections, heart disease and lung cancer.
    My idea for a new technology that could help to solve the problem is biofilters.
    This technology wouldn't work for everyone, because not all are going to understand it.
    Biofilters might solve air pollution problem, and air pollution is one of the main reasons of climate change, so we could make a step to our goal.

    Innovation and creativity are the keys to changing the world. Only the ingenuity of the human mind can develop new solutions for: eliminating poverty; promoting agricultural sustainability and ensuring food security; fighting diseases; improving education; protecting the environment and accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy; Increasing productivity and raising business competitiveness.
    It is the Corona pandemic (Covid 19), as it was one of the most important curves of the century, life has actually stopped, school students have stopped going to schools, workers have also stopped, as there has become paralysis in all aspects of life.
    So I would like to ask some questions: What would we do if there was no internet!?
    What if we don't get or make and discover the vaccination!
    What if life stopped for a longer period or remained like this for centuries to come!
    My answer to the questions: If there was no Internet, we could not communicate with each other, and also school students were unable to complete their education and communicate with their teachers (distance education), so the invention of the Internet helped us solve many of our problems in communicating the educational process and the completion of institutions and companies for their work.
    As for vaccination, were it not for the knowledge, experience, diligence and invention of scientists, vaccination would have saved many people’s lives and the human race.
    What if the pandemic continues for centuries?
    There are several cats on offer
    The positive is that during the pandemic period, carbon emissions have decreased
    Many of the wilderness areas regained their vitality, so the climate improved and the expansion of the ozone layer decreased and others. As for the negative, it led to the spread of unemployment, poverty, the halting of production and the decline of the economy.
    And my invention to reduce the spread of infection is robots so that they periodically check and vaccinate people and use sterile insulating suits to prevent the spread of infection.

    These technologies would work on everyone becous the So that the robots have the artificial intelligence necessary for their work so that they have a bank of information about all people and their sick conditions to give them the appropriate vaccination and conduct quick tests in the least possible time so that they do not exceed seconds.

    The problem I'm writing about is Carbon emissions from cars, which constitute the largest proportion of global warming and climate change.

    My three questions to help me find out more about it are Can we really get to zero emissions in the future!?
    Does excessive use of vehicles and cars and overpopulation affect the environment?!
    How can we reduce carbon emissions!?

    In researching the answers, I have found out first,To achieve net zero emissions, we need a massive transformation in how we produce and consume electricity. We need a newer, better transportation system. We need to stop deforestation. We need a climate-friendly agricultural system.Human life is negatively affected by small particles of pollutants and ozone gas, which are formed due to vehicles that emit carbon dioxide during the combustion process and therefore vehicles and cars contribute significantly to emissions.
    To reduce our emissions: we need to actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or offset its effects and It also requires international cooperation.

    If governments speed up their actions to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, which means reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
    My idea for a new technology that could help solve the problem is Inventing cars that run on renewable energy or work on magnetic force and the force of repulsion between them . This technology would work for everyone because it's It will be the turning point of the century, the use of renewable energy and the reduction of emissions, thus preserving our planet Earth.It will be implemented taking into consideration the changing infrastructure and the cooperation of the world's governments with each other to implement it.

    "The problem I'm writing about is food waste and how it is so much dangerous to our world . actually food waste means unused or leftover food that is thrown out from households or restaurants. 1/3 part of the produced food are wasted in the world . Food waste alone generates about 8% - 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions.Around 88 million tonnes of food waste are generated annually only in the European Union countries which means 170 000 000 tonnes of CO2.
    My three questions to help me find out more about it are...
    1.How can food waste affect climate change?
    2.How Reducing Food Waste Could Ease Climate Change?
    3.What measures should the developed countries take to prevent this issue?


    In researching the answers, I have found out... Food waste are hampering our climate in a large way . A report says that If food waste were a country, it would have the third-biggest carbon footprint after the US and China.The developing countries are wasting 2oM slices of bread pieces in a day.
    We produce enough food to feed everyone on our planet today and the 2.5 billion more people to come in the next 35 years. so if we just produce enough food ,we can reduce at least 10% of carbon emission . On the other hand the fertilizers we are using to produce food is somehow the main cause of water pollution and air pollution.We can reduce the pollution of soil also .
    Now coming to the biggest point why the developing countries should come forward to take steps .BeacuseThe State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, which states that," nearly 690 million people are hungry, or 8.9% of the world population – up by 10 million people in one year and by nearly 60 million in five years."In the underdeveloped countries people are dying and we are wasting the food which is making climate change that means putting oil into fire . so the leaders have to come forward to solve this problem for the sake of humanity and the sake of the climate of our mother earth.
    My idea for a new technology that could help solve the problem is to make a software system to those who are buying the more amount of food exceeding their amount and make a law that they have to use a allocated and needed amount of food . if any of those are violating these laws then they have to pay money and by using that software the money will be transferred to people of underdeveloped countries who are dying because of hunger.

    This technology would/wouldn't work for everyone because..."in the underdeveloped countries or in the developing countries the people who are slightly superior than their community we have to make them understand at first and the people who are going through the hunger we also should tell them that it will be great for them cause human psychology is the biggest thing when they will get a chance it might happen that they also start to waste food .
    lastly the developed countries we must have to raise voice against them and gain the attention of the leaders to make it implement.
    if people are aware of it and agree with this system the technology will surely work and i believe that

    The problem I want to solve is global warming. This is a problem not solved till now though many steps have been taken. To do so we must reduce emissions from vehicles, mills and factories.

    My idea to solve the problem is that I want to make a system that can reuse the emissions again. That is they will not be emitted but they will be again stored or collected. This will help to prevent global warming.

    The challenge of this idea maybe that fuel may still be required. However only one step cannot eliminate the problem. Other steps like forestation or renewable energy is needed. Other sorts of pollution must also be prevented.

    As for the most important problems that I solved, they are the mechanization of ways of doing business, so that computers now keep the acquired experiences and implement a large part of the tasks that do not require the use of the human mind, and this helped reduce the natural rate of human error and finally is the ability to retain data and ease its retrieval Review and analyze it in ways that are not available to a large number of people

    the problem i want to discuss is the massive air pollution.

    the questions around my mind are - why is the population is increasing with the passing of time,
    how to save the nature from this curse.

    according to my research,
    In 2013,transportation contributed more than half of the carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides, and almost a quarter of the hydrocarbons emitted into our air.The amount of toxic gases that factories release into the air increases health and environmental damages. In factories, toxic materials and gases, like carbon dioxide and methane, are burned and pumped out into the atmosphere.. There are multiple sources of air pollution, which are industries, fossil fuels, agro waste, and vehicular emissions. Industrial processes upgradation, energy efficiency, agricultural waste burning control, and fuel conversion are important aspects to reducing pollutants which create the industrial air pollution.

    so i would like to invent the industrial filter which will filter the emitted gas from brick field or any industry.
    then, in case of vehicles, i would like to seek attention of developed countries where they will try to replace gas or fuel run vehicles with electric vehicles.
    Dependency on nonrenewable energy should be reduced, and usage of renewable should be high instead.The Solar Impulse Label is granted to innovative solutions to air pollution that meet high standards of sustainability and profitability.Aforestation is a must.
    so government should take necessary steps, and we, the mango people should come forward and save our planet,coming with the motto" plant green,save green".

    thank you.

    The plant in Iceland absorbs 4,000 tons of CO2 annually, making it the largest direct-air CO2 capture facility in the world. However, that offsets the annual emissions of only about 250 US residents. It is also far from Clayworks' original goal of sequestering 1% of global annual carbon dioxide emissions, by more than 300 million tons by 2025. The Swiss start-up currently aims to sequester 500,000 tons by the end of the year. Contract.

    When I thought, I found that doctors find great problems with sterilization, examinations, and information gathering. I found a solution to this problem, which enables factories and scientists to design robots for sterilization, examinations, rescue and collection of medical information for individuals by conducting corona tests on them, measuring temperature, taking blood samples, and conducting x-rays and sound waves on the heart. This will facilitate the work of doctors.

    Light pollution is a huge problem in big cities, motorways and sometimes small countryside villages. Light pollution is when floodlights, streetlamps or other light sources are blocking out stars and making star watching near impossible. This could also affect aircraft and commercial flight.
    1. Why is light pollution such a substantial problem?
    2. Could people manage a whole day without using electrical lights?
    3. What alternatives are there to lighting?
    I would fix this by changing the lights to emit a less prominent ray so the light pollution would be better.
    Another way could keep the lights in a specific radius meaning in wouldn't reflect of things or be refracted.

    After researching the problem, I discovered that it is one of the most dangerous problems threatening the world.
    It is the fumes emitted from factories and cars, and the most dangerous of these emitted fumes is carbon dioxide, which causes global warming.
    But Korean scientists succeeded in converting carbon dioxide into methane, which is the main component of natural gas. And if you ask me how I came to the solution, I put three questions and searched for the solution until I came to this solution:
    1- What are the problems that result from fumes emitted from factories and cars?

    2- What research did they do to find a solution?
    3- What are the solutions that scientists have reached and what is the preferred solution to this problem?

    * Finally, I hope that this solution will be applied in our country because it suffers from this problem.

    1. What is the cause of the problem?

    2. Are hydrogenated foods and hybrid vegetables behind it?

    3. Could it be hereditary or genetic causes?

    *In researching the
    answers ,I found out that these diseases have two causes either food or problems in the genes.

    *My idea for new technique*:There will be a new technique based on the principle of extracting the problem. First, working to see if this person has an exhibition of cancer diseases in the future or not. Second to examine all products and vegetables within the consumer hand.. We hope that this technology will work.
    The human body's most valuable thing is health. There are people who pay millions to be healthy. Nothing is equivalent to health!

    *Extra challenge*:at the same time, two problems will arise. The first is the manufacturers of hydrogenated foods and chemical clubs. Second, what if the basis of these problems is genetic or hereditary, and not caused by foods! We will then have to deal with each person genetically. This technology will limit the spread of these diseases. It may be a little expensive, but as we say, nothing is equivalent to health.

    All the problems that the world faces raise many questions, and we find in each problem a solution that is limited to saving money in order to facilitate the process of reaching the desired result. At this point, we find that saving money to solve any problem we find it difficult to obtain money, but we find that if The money was in a drug deal, and it was available quickly and easily. This indicates the youth’s ignorance of society and its value, and the lack of societal awareness, which gives us an opportunity to live in security and stability.
    1- Who is the main responsible for the money and its disbursement in the state?
    2- Is there an automated schedule for studying and controlling people's money?
    3- Is there control and immunity that prevents the entry and manufacture of drugs and everything that is harmful to society?
    4- Does the main role and the largest part fall on the general public or the government?

    The problem I am focusing on is body shaming. Body shaming is a huge problem nowadays, and it is not just people judging. Even adults and people who control certain apps do this.For instance: when posting on social media some people may post a picture at the beach, however apps may take certain pictures down because it does not meet their standards to what beauty means, just because of how someone looks, even though if someone else posted one exactly the same, but look skinnier for example, they will not take that one down. It is almost like there is body standards.
    I think this a vile thing and body discrimination should be banned. Another problem that encourages this is beauty filters and apps. I.e. ticktock ,snap chat,Instagram have hundreds of beauty filters that allow people to adjust their face, look skinnier, have a smaller/bigger face etc. This promotes changing your body and how you could look. Filters are not bad in all cases, however most of the time, people use them, then when they take them of feel unattractive and plain.
    My three questions are: Where does negative body image come from? Why do people feel the need to look a certain way? What are the effects of body shaming?
    Looking into my question - where does negative body image come from - I have discovered that negative body energy comes many different influences, including family, peer group, media and social pressures. To add to this, data shows that 61% of adults feel negative about their body image most of the time; a further 13% feel 'very negative', and 66% of children feel negative body image.
    Following on to my next question - why do people feel the need to look a certain way? - it comes from social media. For decades social media has pressured expectations of bodies looking perfect. Women especially, have been the main victims of this problem. A vast amount of this are young teenage girls. It is such a colossal expectation and issue, that you won’t be surprised to hear that celebrities and models use filters and Photoshop because of how they are anticipated to look; perfect bodies, great faces, no wrinkles or pimples, smooth lips etc. 90% of young women use filters - as you can see not much men at all.
    For my third and final question - what are the effects of body shaming - research proves that people feel far more insecure about themselves, can have negative emotional effects, including a reduction in self-esteem and other issues such as eating disorders, anxiety, body image disturbance, body dysmorphic disorder and depression.
    My idea for a new technology that could help solve this problem is a non- body shaming app that allows people to start loving themselves and feeling like their body is perfect just the way it is. Every single time they open the app, a positive message shows up, and furthermore they can post images without getting anxious about getting shamed for their body, because this app will not allow negative comments. It only lets you comment positive and kind comments on peoples posts. If a rude or body - shaming comment is posted, it would be deleted straight away and that person would be banned to comment for a certain amount of time. It also allows you to look at positive quotes and natural models, with no makeup, no filters and no Photoshop. There is also no beauty related filters or ways of editing your face, so that you can understand it is amazing and also without allowing them to edit themselves, people would start to love their body and see that Photoshop and filters aren’t necessary for someone to be complete. To conclude my app, every time you close the app, it will send a notification saying a reminder of how beautiful that person is and to continue smiling.The app will also be free and available for any device.
    This technology would work for anyone because it is only about being yourself and loving your body. It is also about making others feel like they are the best version of themselves without editing or filters.

    The problem I want to address is education inequality which is present in this curriculum. There are a wide variety of existing issues in education that tech developers are eyeing to solve. One relates to discrepancies in the needs of students. Right from starting school, students are pressurized to learn certain topics with each passing year, despite the fact that learning methods can differ dramatically from one person to another.
    In recent years, teachers have seen a move toward personalized learning and tech will accelerate that. Already, forward-thinking schools are implementing methods that increase flexibility in the learning environment. Some of these methods include a mix of technology, small group interaction in class, the addition of “advisors” for individual students, weekly goal setting, and more.

    The problem I'm writing about is the disposal of non-biodegradable materials into the environment.
    My three questions to help me find out more about it are: What are the non-biodegradable materials? How are they affecting the environment? What can be done to ensure a sustainable decrease in the harm caused by these non-biodegradable materials?
    In researching the answers, I have found out: A Non-Biodegradable material can be defined as a kind of substance which cannot be broken down by natural organisms and acts as a source of pollution. Non-biodegradable materials are often synthetic products like plastic, glass, batteries, tetra packs, medical waste, carbon paper and many more.
    These are still the top reasons for causing air, water, and soil pollution. It also causes many serious problems like cancer and is not eco-friendly. However, non-biodegradable elements can be separated and recycled.
    My idea for a new technology that could help solve the problem is: Develop genetically modified species of bacteria that can decompose these non-biodegradable wastes.
    Extra challenge: This technology wouldn't work for everyone because it's not so easy to develop such species of bacteria as it'll a lot of time, research and technologies. The modern or developed countries can take the initiatives but the developing or underdeveloped countries might not be able to take such a huge step all of a sudden.

    The problem which I am going to talk about today of my community is noise pollution.
    The questions which comes to my mind while thinking about noise pollution are –
    1. At which stage noise becomes harmful for the people?
    2. What are the effects of the noise pollution?
    3. Which technologies we can use or invent to reduce the impact of this invisible threat?

    According to my research, World Health Organization says that, it should be no more than 30 dB. Loud noise can have latent effects on our behavior, causing aggressive behavior and irritability. Noise may affect people's ability to focus which can lead to low performance over time. It is also bad for the memory, making it hard to study.Interestingly, our ears need more than 16 hours' rest to make up for two hours of exposure to 100 dB. European Environment Agency estimates that noise is responsible for 72000 hospital admissions and 16600 premature deaths every year in Europe alone. Not only does it hurt humans, it is bad for animals, too. According to the National Park Service (NPS) in the United States, noise pollution has an enormous environmental impact and does serious damage to wildlife. Experts say noise pollution can interfere with breeding cycles and rearing and is even hastening the extinction of some species. When I did my research on the effects of this noise pollution I found that Respiratory agitation, racing pulse, high blood pressure, headaches and, in case of extremely loud, constant noise, gastritis, colitis and even heart attacks. It also can cause attacks of stress, fatigue, depression, anxiety and hysteria in both humans and animals. Noise above 45 dB stops you from falling asleep or sleeping properly.If we come to the solution regarding the reduction of noise pollution using technologies then as per my research wearing earplugs is a cost-effective solution of reducing noise pollution. A pair of earplugs can be worn while sleeping or at any other time of the day when you want to reduce the amount of noise hitting our eardrums. And we can create a technology that could absorb sound waves of greater than a particular strength. High-intensity noise from the environment can be recorded by placing those devices on roadways and industrial zones (similar to how traffic lights are installed).

    Here as I am talking about my community, my community is not so rich both in terms of inventing technologies and also in economical state. So it be a difficult task creating a sound wave absorbing technology, but as we have a huge number of talented and skilled manpower, if we all work together properly then we can achieve success in terms of reducing the impacts of noise pollution.

    My today's research is based on "poverty". Poverty is a really big problem, especially in developing countries. I think not many people are much concerned about this topic. So I decided to put my effort here.

    1. Not being able to buy foods: Food is one of the basic human rights. But still millions of people fail to get that. According to a research, 957 million people n 93 countries worldwide Do Not Have Enough To Eat On A Regular Basis. It might be possible to solve the problem only by setting up an automated system everywhere that serves food. A lot of food is wasted when people don't want to eat more than they already ate in restaurants and stuff. That food could be restored properly with the help of robots. A lots of fruits and vegetable is wasted per year too. People don't want to buy fruits and vegetables when their color is a little dull or it has a little dent or spot even if it's perfectly fine. Those fruits and vegetables remain extra. The businessmen could easily donate those to the poor homeless people, but most of them don't do that and rather throw the food away. Because food travel cost is much due to storage system and thus. Bot automated stores can fresh-pack those foods and send them for donation easily. Now, this might not be possible for everyone. Because the cost of setting up robots isn't much affordable. But once set up, those can run forever with the help of regular maintenance and can solve the food crisis.

    2. No shelter: Shelter is another fundamental right people are missing. It is estimated that 150 million people are homeless worldwide currently. To help these helpless homeless people, I would still depend on bots. There are lots of waste garbage and plastic bottles here and there. A special kind of robot could be made that can easily make things and attachable walls too by which homeless people can get a roof to stay under at least until they get a permanent solution or can live there forever too!

    3. No proper healthcare: Healthcare is also one of the basic needs people around the world lack. Nowadays advanced healthcare became much costly and out of reach for a group of people. But now people are inventing cheap medicare services and techniques! I recently read an article when some friends invented a microscope for 5$ only. Imagine diseases detection with a minimum cost! Many such inventions are made. Robots can take the job of medicare from humans in near future and benefit all I hope.

    Just solving these 3 easy points might bring a huge change in our society!

    The problem I am writing about is the lacking of education in our countryside.
    Three questions that helped me to know more about that problem are:
    1. Why the problem arose ?
    2. In which aspect the problem affects much?
    3. Who are the main victims of that problem?
    In researching the answers, I have found that the problem arose due to bad management of the curriculum and negligence of the people. This problem affects the students’ study, mental health and works as a barricade of their improvement. Most of the students in our country are poor ,in addition to that most of them are uneducated. The future generations are the victims of that process.
    My idea for a new technology that can solve the problem is a network system that covers a big range. We have the technology for network connection. But they are not strong enough for covering the range of the people of countryside. They can have the technology which is needed to study after coming in networking range. And I would keep that large range covering network device priceless. By that everyone can have education.
    But some people also may be deviated from their paths. After some days it may be seen that the students are using their network in bad works after becoming familiar with the network system. So, that wouldn’t work for those who will not use that in the correct way.

    The problem I want to talk about is high child mortality rate.
    The three questions I would ask to find about the problem are:
    1. Why is the problem taking place?
    2. Who are the victims of this problem?
    3. Where is this problem taking place?
    While researching the answers of my questions I came to know that every year children of mere age are dying in masses from various diseases or malnutrition. But the causes of this problem are preventable. So if we want we can solve this problem but no one is willing to do so. Every day 15000 new born babies and children under the age of five die. This problem is seen in large scale in Saharan Africa and Asia. 45% of these children die within the first 28 days of their life.
    To solve this problem we must take the help of technology. In the third world countries children are dying of curable disease because of scarcity of vaccines. Extensive researches have to be conducted to find out a way of producing huge number of effective vaccines all together keeping the price range under control to make it affordable for the unfortunate children. "What is not possible now can be made possible in the near future." it is the motto of technological innovation. By establishing advanced biochemical facilities and producing vaccines for the children all over the world, specially the third world countries, we can reduce child mortality rate to zero.
    All of us also should remain vigilant of these problems in the world.

    1- The problem I am writing about is "Nuclear wastage mismanagemen." At present, powerful countries are moving way forward in nuclear technology. They are using nuclear power to create electcricity and also nuclear weapons. These create immense amount of nuclear wastage.

    2- My 3 questions to help me find out more about the problem are:-
    a) Why are countries so much keen to use nuclear energy for weapons and electrcity and other resources?
    b) In what way the concerned authority are being careless and causing pollution through nuclear wastage?
    c) What can we do to stabalize the damages caused by nuclear wastage?

    3- For solving this problem, I have thought about ways to stabilize nuclear or radioactive wastage and also ways to reduce their use. First of all, the nuclear power plants should have a technology that will help to stabalize the hugely unstable radioactive isotopes. The wastage that come out of these plants, are radioactive, so as they are unstable and very harmful because of the rays they emit, they need to be stabilized. Again, the wastage needs to disposed off in such a way, so that they are turned into harmless substance. Finally to reduce their use, we need to stop the production of nucear weapons(which are immensly distructive) and try to narrow down the usage og nuclear power to basic needs such as electricity only. These are the solutions I can think of.

    The new station is based on the technology developed by the "Carpfix" project, which is based on simulating a natural process in which rock formations interact with dissolved carbon dioxide to form stable carbonate minerals, so that they become a permanent carbon store that does not harm the environment.

    The problem I'm gonna talk about is 'racism'. This is a huge problem even for the current world. We are all born as human beings and we will die as the same. So, I have questions in my mind; what is the reason for which a particular nation or race feels superior to another? Second question; what can be the consequences of such racism? And lastly; can racism vanish completely?
    Historian Dante A. Puzzo, in his discussion of Aristotle, racism, and the ancient world writes that:
    "Racism rests on two basic assumptions: that a correlation exists between physical characteristics and moral qualities; that mankind is divisible into superior and inferior stocks."
    This means the nations that are economically and culturally prosperous than the others, look down on them. Again, people of white skin think they are more beautiful than blacks, and this drives them to be racists.
    Now the consequences. The result of such racism affects both the health and the mind of people. A report of 2015 says mental health is affected almost twice that of physical health. Children will not be able to go to school because of shame. The adults suffer from depression and anxiety. So, they will not be able to study as well as work. As a result, they will never come to the light and will be undeveloped forever.
    Lastly, can racism vanish fully? Unexpectedly the answer is no. Even if everyone thinks equally and the world is developed, some of the nations will still be a little bit underdeveloped. So, the ones being more developed will look down on them.
    Now, the idea I have is a strong amendment to the law. If racism is seen anywhere, he has to be taken under punishment. A special application can be made, which can be downloaded on the phone very easily. So if anyone thinks he is the victim of racism he can simply make a call and it will help him to get out of the situation very quickly.

    The problem I am writing about is Drowning worldwide, specially in the countries like Haiti, Central Africa, Chad, Cameroon etc. My three questions to find out more about it are :

    1. Who are more prone to get harmed by this problem?
    2. What are the reasons to get affected?
    3. Is there any permanent solution or innovation to solve this?

    After I researched the answers I found out that most of the victims get attacked by it because of their ignorance. There is a time when the water of sea increases and a time when it decreases. We know it as the Ebb and flow but when someone don't know the time when it increases, they get imbalanced by the waves and drowns. Same goes for the rivers. Also many dies because they don't know how to swim. So, the technology I am gonna invent is a machine which can, by measuring the water level will alert everyone near the sea or river. Also, I am gonna programme an app which will tell every details about ebb and flow of rivers and seas so it's gonna help the maximum people. Also I would like to draw the attentions of the leaders to initiate a law to learn swimming so that it will fulfill the other side of the problem.

    Extra challenge: It can't help all the people but the maximum. Many countries won't be that inspired to use the technology because the problem is often ignored though it is one of the biggest global problems. So we should also try to increase awareness of the people to completely eradicate the problem.

    The station includes equipment for collecting carbon dioxide from the air, including fans to extract air, and filters to pick up carbon dioxide from the air. When the filters are filled with carbon dioxide, the carbon dioxide collectors are shut down, and the temperature inside is then raised to between 80 and 100 °C to release pure, concentrated carbon dioxide.

    One of the biggest ongoing problems in the world is hunger. The world produces enough food to feed everyone on the planet, yet 16.6% of the world’s population is undernourished which includes 99 million children under the age of 5.

    Maximum portion of these people belong to under developed countries for which they are often overlooked. So to reveal this people in front of the world, I would like to create a funding site which will be easily accessible to people around the world. My website will help people from developed countries to donate money for food to people in under developed countries in a very few taps. Governments of the countries and international organizations can take part in promoting the site and influence people in donating. Under developed countries can facilitate their poor people to register themselves as receivers of these donated money for food.
    This site can certainly reduce the hunger around the world especially in low developed countries to a great extent.

    In my country Palestine, there are many problems, the most important of which is the problem of power outages, questions that I will use as a key to answer

    How do your people deal with this problem?
    Can your country's economy solve this problem with money?
    How will you take advantage of a substance harmful to the environment to turn it into a clean, environmentally friendly source?

    This problem results in the anxiety that always dominates the population, as we always check the electricity to make sure it is present or not, and this has resulted in many deaths. I cannot say that my country should provide electricity permanently so that many accidents do not happen because of it because My country already has a weak economy, so that it cannot meet the food needs of a large proportion of the people, but it occurred to me that a technology can be applied to generate electricity in an environmentally friendly manner, and of course this source will be renewable because I want to take into account the environment in solving the problems of many Countries, not spoiling them, and that is by converting animal dung into electrical energy, and this specifically will help villages and countries with weak economies like mine, this is how we will raise the economy and also we will be able to provide electricity permanently and reduce deaths due to electrocution, this technology will not It is compatible with everyone in societies not because it is impractical, but because some may see it as something disgusting, but instead of using animal dung as fertilizer for plants without thinking about its risks to the environment, let us use it to solve an environmental problem, it will Economic progress is achieved, and the number of deaths is reduced, and there are also countries whose economy is already strong, you will see that there is no need to use a source like this, since I am a country with a strong economy, we can buy oil or provide solar energy to all our residents, and there are also countries where the proportion of animals is few compared to their need of electrical energy

    The problem I am writing about is the (global warming) problem.

    My three questions to help me learn more about it are:
    1- What is the problem of global warming?
    2- What are the predictions of climate experts about climate degrees.
    3- What are the effects of global warming on the rest of the climate elements?

    the answer:
    1- The problem of global warming is: an increase in the average surface temperature in the world with an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide, methane and some other gases in the atmosphere. These gases are called greenhouse gases because they contribute to the heating of the Earth’s surface atmosphere.
    2- The increase in the average air temperature since the middle of the twentieth century has been observed with its continuation of the upward trend, as the surface temperature of the globe has increased by 0.74, and it is expected that temperatures will likely increase by 1.1 during the twenty-first century Global warming will continue beyond the year 2100 to reach 4.8 degrees, even if emissions stop due to the huge heat capacity of the oceans and the long life of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
    3- The continuous increase in global temperature will lead to a rise in sea level and a change in the amount and pattern of precipitation,
    It is expected that tropical deserts will expand and continue to recede glaciers, permafrost lands and frozen seas, with the Arctic region affected in particular, and one of its effects is also the shrinkage of the Amazon rainforests and forests. The North, the extinction of species and the change in agricultural crops. My idea for a technology that could help solve the problem is this: invent a device that reflects solar energy into outer space and thus interferes with heating the Earth.

    This technology will not work with society because it is expensive and expensive and needs experts and specialists and needs specific techniques and machines, so many societies cannot work.

    my problem is plastic pollution


    my questions are why does it happen?
    who does it the most?
    why does it not stop?

    the answer is that people do not realise that their pollution is hurting the world , animals and even humans because the sea is dying , plants are not growing , and our earth is disappearing . viruses are caused by the dead fish that plastic takes . we do not realise we can help and make a massive change to our life . It is not stopping because of laziness and people not bothering about the environment and our earth . pollution is not only by plastic it is also by oil from tug boats ,cars and even helicopters. These viruses will kill out animals plants and all chances of saving nature . Pollution is also causing global warming it kills the ice , polar bears losing homes the sea levels rising and the diseases in the ice will spread and kill everything.

    The problem I'm talking about is the problem of radioactive contamination and one of its causes and risks to the environment.Radiation is pollution of the environment, soil and water. It also negatively affects human health and alters the proportions of essential elements in the environment.It's also working on environmental imbalances and causing a lot of problems for the ecosystem.
    The concept of radiation is emissions and absorption of energy.Photon, as it moves from one level to another, emissions, and there are types and forms of radiation contamination.
    Affects different natural elements.Radioactive water pollution. Radiation causes water pollution.Radioactive soil contamination causes radioactive contamination to soil when the soil is infected with radioactive materials, both solid and liquid.Radioactive air pollution: Radioactive air pollution is one of the best types of pollution, given the rapid spread of radioactive materials through the air.The radiation takes the invasive form.

    The problem I want to talk about is the spread of plastic pollutants, which are one of the biggest pollutants to the environment, and the ways people use them is (burning them) and they are very harmful to the atmosphere. 1- Do all countries suffer from this problem and have they taken solutions against it? 2- Can recycled plastic be used more than once? 3- Can it be replaced with other materials? (Experts in this world want a solution to this problem because it is difficult to get rid of and if we want to get rid of From them, we must easily leave civilization and go to the age of dinosaurs. Researchers have found for a long time: converting gas to organic materials, but there is an expensive and difficult method. But at the present time, they have found an electrochemical method with electricity exceeding 100 millivolts. They can convert CO2 gas and water into industrial materials with an efficiency of 99 percent, and this method Inexpensive and uses cheap and more efficient materials than the old methods / and published research They used a cheap material (nickel phosphate) as a catalyst in the electrochemical reaction of the dissolved water solution with CO2 gas until it turns into industrial materials such as: plastics and hydrocarbons used in alternative fuels, and it is possible in the near future to get rid of the problem of global warming If we can develop this method and reduce the presence of gas from the industrial revolution until now as a result of forced quantities that destroyed our climate and became unbearable and the good thing about the matter they took a patent and began to work He worked and named Renew Co2 Company to produce organic materials from co2 gas.

    The problem I am writing about is racism: attempt to dominate the weak. My three questions to help me find out more about it are :
    1.What is racism?
    2.Why is it becoming the hot topic every time?
    3. Does racism create a bad impact on world's political economic or stability?
    In researching the answers I have found out , Racism is the discrimination that groups of humans possess different behavioural traits corresponding to physical appearance and can be divided based on the superiority of one race over another.
    From the ancient period of time,a mentality has been set that white are preferable,black are not... men are preferable, women are not... might is right... 'dominate the weak', this belief didn't go away even from today's generation. For this racism, life was taken from George floyd and many other black men or women. For this racism, many womens are still deprived of human rights. For this mentality and reasons, it has been always the hot topic.
    If any event of racism is discovered in a country, it is shameful for the country. People create a bad image of the country. Thus many people begin to protest. Thus it creates political, economical stability and unrest in the country.
    We don't need any technology to solve it. We have to just changed our mentality and urge upon a law which will prohibit any racism in black- white, religion, man- woman. We have to see the world with a different angle where every human being is equal. Speaking of Technology my idea is to invent an artificial intelligence robot that can give positive inspiration to its owner to protest against racism. It could also alert its owner whether in his/hers words is there any sign of racism or not.
    Extra challenge :This technology wouldn’t' work for everyone because poor people can't buy this kind of technology for its cost. As racism is seen mostly among the rich, so I think, it can create a good impact on their mentality. But the law against racism will work in every sector of people.

    My problem is river pollution which is a global issue. Water is life, and the river is the mark of civilization, and when such things are being questioned, it is urgent to solve such problems.

    So, my three questions that would help better understand the problem and their solution are:
    I) What steps should be taken sequentially in order to clean and purify the rivers?
    II) What type of technology would be the best to solve the problem? And what type of equipments and devices should it have?
    III) How much public and government support will be required to see success in this project?
    While researching these questions, fascinating and valuable results have come. The results are being elaborated below:
    The first question was, 'what steps should we take?' We must know what we are doing when to commence any project, and I have found four effective disciplined steps.
    In the beginning, we need to interrupt the flow of the river water, making it still. Dams can play a crucial role here. But in the absence of the dams, as far as expense and sustainability are considered, we can use alternative dams such as tree trunks, rocks, rubber blocks or other barriers. Then as our water is stilled, we can start our main work.
    We now need to remove the trash and wastes from the river.
    Then we need to extract out all the dirt particles and smaller wastes which are polluting the river.
    Finally, we can remove the liquid chemical substances and then we may get our dreamed river.

    Now, answering the second question, we need to find the best technology as now we are aware of our well-organized action plan. And that is our 'Medium-Sized Water Filtering Submarine'.
    Firstly, the submarine will use nets and 'rubber-vacuums' to accumulate all the wastes and trash from the river to its shore where there would be our waste disposal center.
    Then, the submarine will take water in its filtering compartment, strain the water from minor wastes and dirt, will store it in a different tank and let the water out. This step needs to be continued until the river is dirt-free.

    After that, the submarine will detect all the chemicals by using its sensors. It will go for the second advanced filtering process, where it will deduct all the hazardous chemicals such as arsenic, pesticides, herbicides, etc.
    Our submarine has done an excellent job, and now we have a river as clean as heaven.


    Now, the last question was- 'How much support will we receive from the general public and the government?'.
    Honestly, our entire project's possibility of success solely depends on the chances of this statement, the better support we get, and the better are our chances.

    The government needs to approve this project and make the terms official. As a result, it would be officially and nationally recognized and harming this project will be a grave crime.
    Furthur conditions should be maintained strictly. For example, industries are prohibited to flush their trash into the river. Again, the public would be retained away from using the river as their 'Washing and cleaning spot' to some significant extent.
    In this way, we would be able to stop the sources of the problem. If the government and the public do not assemble in this regard, we clean today; it gets dirty tomorrow, giving birth to an unprogressive and meaningless loop.

    Now, we have already talked about how greatly this is going to be beneficial for us, but why won't it work for everyone? There are two simple reasons, time and money.
    But this shouldn't be a deadly concern. Time does not count when our existence is being questioned. We must be patient if we want to survive with prosperity and peace.
    On the contrary, money is not something that we can all afford as we can do with time. So what to do? Well, we need to know our priorities. We need to invest where money is really needed. We need to save money for the national interest, not only for luxury or unnecessary targets. If this is carefully and honestly done along with determination, then the wealth needed will automatically come. It is hard to cope with these two things, but not impossible. The choice is given, the decision is ours.

    And if we do not take such project in our proposition and in an earnest manner, then the state will be:
    "What we love today is a history tomorrow", as being said once by our beloved actor in a UN assembly.

    Plastic pollution includes the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that alter human life or humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are classified into small, medium or large based on their size. The emergence of plastic pollution is linked to inexpensive and permanent alternatives, which replace the many expensive products used by humans. However, it is slow to decompose.
    My four questions will help me learn more about this problem.
    1/ Does plastic pollution adversely affect lands, waterways, oceans and living organisms?
    2/ Are humans affected by plastic pollution?
    3/ Plastic bags are harmful to the environment?
    4/ Can we replace plastic with other materials that are accepted by society?
    While searching for answers to these questions:
    1/ Yes, through living organisms getting stuck in it, or ingesting plastic waste, or by being exposed to chemicals inside "plastics" that cause disturbances in biological functions.
    2/ Yes, by disrupting the thyroid hormone axis or hormone levels in humans.
    3 / Plastic bags kill 100,000 marine animals and one million birds According to the United Nations, eating plastic kills one million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals every year.
    In addition, more than 90% of all birds and fish are believed to have plastic particles in their stomachs. This is because plastic is absorbed into small parts in the sea, which are then consumed by fish and other marine animals.
    4/ Perhaps you are not ready to give up all forms of plastic in your life yet, but there are some ways that can reduce your consumption of single-use plastic and recycling single-use plastic may not be a good idea, and plastic is an integral part of our lives and our modern world .

    In Turkey, most people aren't educated or they can't find jobs. So I think technology can solve that. There could be small offices with computers that has an application in it. The app would educate the people who aren't educated and would have a place that has links for job applications. As a result, most people would be educated.

    We must admit that technology in itself cannot solve societal problems. Technology, for example, cannot solve the problem of poverty or the large disparity in income rates. For example, in the past five decades, the Internet, search engines, social networks, mobile phones ... etc. have appeared almost all in In the United States of America, however, poverty rates remained there

This is a serious experience on human life to send someone to a vehicle and explore it is better to be placed as a mechanical pilot or automatic man In the cameras and the sensors of this reception will reduce space notification and are likely to find a livelihoods in places that we can not reach and I think Japan is from the experience of the future of the frequent robots and the previous inventions of its era there.

    The problem I'm writing about is marine pollution because I think that it's an important and dangerous topic.
    My three questions are :
    1. Who is the cause of all this marine pollution ?
    2.What are the consequences of this pollution ?
    3.Can the consequences of this pollution affect humans ?
    Without hésitation , I find that we can all agree that men is the main root cause for all type of pollution because we throw our garbage on the sea, rivers , lakes... We also pollute the water with the high trafic of boats, we do this every day because it becomes a habit for us without thinking about the bad consequences, For example there are many sea creature Who are in extinction like the seahorse, blue whale, white shark and sea turtle Who thinks that plastic bags thrown on water are jellyfishes so they want to eat them, suffocate and die. We pollute the water because we think that don't have consequences in the human life but we are wrong because humans eat many sea creature who eat our garbage and oil And that's how they transfer sicknesses which are often fatal to us And so we can deduce that pollution has an importance on our lives. So I thought that we can design an intelligent robot to catche the waste and collect it and filter the used oil.
    And so we can reduce the amount of pollution but that does not prevent us from playing our role and dirtying our mother nature more to have a healthy and clean environment for us and the next generations.

    The problem is climate change Climate change is the defining issue of our time and we are now at a critical moment. The global impacts of climate change are wide-ranging and unprecedented in scale, from changing weather patterns that threaten food production to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic floods. Adapting to these effects will be more difficult and costly in the future if drastic measures are not taken now.
    Its causes: It occurs due to the increase in human activity and the use of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which is trapping more heat and the use of fossil fuels in human activity.
    Their solutions: 1_ Planting more trees Experts said that planting trees has a tremendous ability to address the climate crisis. According to recent research, 900 millionhectares of additional tree cover to store 25% of the current carbon pool in the atmosphere.
    2_ Converting carbon dioxide into rocks Experts discussed many techniques, including capturing carbon dioxide from industrial facilities using bacteria and then using it in the production of useful building materials as a by-product.
    3_ Make the Earth's surface more reflective. With this solution, experts mean the use of techniques that reflect solar energy (sunlight) into space and thus conflict with planetary heating.4- Encouraging the direction of energies

    The issue I'm writing about is littering, a commonly brought up problem but a persistent one.
    My research questions are:
    Why do people litter? If I can find out the motivation, then it is easier to find a way to stop it.
    What are the worst places for litter around the world? I can find the areas that struggle so my invention can best cater to the people's needs
    what are the most littered items? Then my invention can take into account what type of rubbish needs to be cleared.
    There are two main reasons for littering, lack of trash cans around and also people simply not wanting to carry around their rubbish.
    The worst place in the world for littering seems to be north America-but mostly Canada, my invention will perhaps have to take into account things like the climate.
    The world's most littered item is cigarette butts, I'll take this into account when designing my invention so as it can safely dispose of the items.
    My idea for technology to help with littering is a type of microorganism that could be put into plastics and non-decomposable items to help it break down. My Idea perhaps wouldn't work because bioengineering is incredibly fiddly and expensive, and just coming up with a new microorganism would not be at all easy.

    Cancer is a serious disease that has become more prevalent nowadays. Its threat to the lives of those affected is the main motivator for new research and discoveries in the field of diagnosis and treatment. Thanks to the recently developed advanced technology devices, a number of types of cancer are diagnosed and treated.
    What is the role of modern technology in the radiological diagnosis of cancer?
    Correct diagnosis is half the treatment. To carry out the correct treatment and determine how to implement it we rely heavily on radiological diagnosis. The supervision of a radiologist over the examination of the patient, and the use of modern technology to carry out the analyzes are prerequisites for obtaining the most accurate diagnosis of the disease. Advances in radiographic imaging techniques have greatly facilitated the diagnosis of oncologists.
    PET/CT for fast and reliable diagnosiswith it
    The PET / CT device is especially used in the diagnosis of cancer by detecting tumors and mapping their location in the body with a determination of whether the tumor is malignant or benign.

    The problem I am writing about is Marine Pollution. Each year billions of pounds of trash and other pollutants enter the ocean. As a result over 1 million marine animals suffer and die each year. The three questions that helped me to research are as follows:

    What is marine pollution, where does the pollution come from and where does it go?
    Marine pollution is caused due to industrial, agricultural and residential waste, particle, noise, excess Carbon dioxide on invasive organisms. Some of the debris ends on the beaches washed in the waves and tide. Some debris gets under water, some are eaten by marine animals that mistake it for food and face complexities. Other forms of pollution that impact the health of the ocean comes from sources like oil spills or fertilizers from agricultural lands.
    What does marine pollution do to ocean diversity?
    Plastic waste entangles or choke fish, seabirds, sea turtles, and marine animals, causing suffocation and starvation. Plastic pollution is so widespread on many beaches that it is reducing turtle reproductive rates by changing the temperature of the sand where incubation takes place.
    Excess debris in the ocean consumes oxygen as it degrades over time, resulting in less 02 in the ocean. Ocean species such as penguins, dolphins, whales, and sharks die as a result of low oxygen levels. Excess nitrogen and phosphorus in seawater hampers the overall oxygen balance in ocean.
    Pollutants in the ocean eventually reach humans. Toxins are ingested by small organisms, which are then consumed by larger predators, many of which are seafood that we eat later. Toxins from infected animals can be deposited in human tissue, causing long-term health problems, cancer, and birth deformities.

    What can be the possible solutions to counter marine pollution?
    An estimated 8 Million tons of plastic enters our oceans every year. There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste estimated to be in our oceans. 269,000 tons float, 4 billion microfibers per km² dwell below the surface. 70% of our debris sinks into the ocean's ecosystem, 15% floats, and 15% lands on our beaches hindering the balance of diversity. Thus what could be the ways to stop such anomaly? Marine pollution is not an issue which can be tackled completely in few years. For this we need to bring up some better solutions waiting for new technological innovations. Ideonella sakaiensis is a bacterium from the genus Ideonella and family Comamonadaceae capable of breaking down and consuming the plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) as a sole carbon and energy source. As most of the pollutions are based on plastics these kind of bacteria can bring up an effective way to combat such anomaly.
    I think such technology will work for everyone and every country because such technology has universality and applicable for both rich and poorer countries.

    : My problem, which I will talk about, is different from the other type of problems, which is technology.
    Technology is tools, knowledge, invention and inspiration.
    Technology is a myth that it has succeeded in determining your location on Earth, but the search for technology that determines your location in life
    But I fear the day when technology will overtake our human interaction, when the world will have a generation of fools.
    And herein lies the problem, since man has relied mainly on technology, and man has become lazy. Despite this amount of technology that man has reached, we have people who are less merciful, less merciful and prey, less emotional and less calm than a backward human (sorry) two aspects of technology the first is that the Internet has become the public arena of the global village and the second is that we can no longer Blame technology when we make mistakes, but we must admit that we are the ones who polluted the environment and depended on technology and depended heavily on technology and no longer think about our problems and depend on technology to determine our destiny and this is never allowed
    I want to tell you something. If you want to automate cars and save people's lives, the skills you need are not taught in any discipline.
    Since technology, our private lives, and our business are so intertwined, I don't think anyone can talk about one without talking about the other, and it's rarer to find happiness in a man surrounded by the miracle of technology than in people who live in the desert of the jungle and are considered by the standards set by our society. They are retarded and volatile (sorry, I want to get the idea right), so I say to those who read this comment who rely on technology, don't let technology control your mind and your life, technology is nothing but a machine that has made human life easier.
    Will this idea work for everyone? I tell you of course not, because most people can't leave technology their whole life is technology.
    I hope my message has arrived as I want it to arrive.

    The problem I am talking about is the crowding in Egypt, specifically in Cairo (a governorate of Egypt), because this problem faces many countries such as China, so the population of China is 1.402 billion in the year 2020, so China is the first country with a large population in the world, followed by India, whose population 1.38 billion, so we see that Egypt is not the only country that has overcrowding and a large population. Egypt has a population of 102.3 million, and the 3 questions that will help me know the cause of the overcrowding are:
    Question 1. What is the cause of congestion?
    Question 2. What is the result of overcrowding?
    Question 3. What solutions should we implement to avoid overcrowding?
    When I saw that congestion faces many countries, particularly developed countries with a large population such as China, which a person sees in his daily life when he goes to work or home, I decided to look for questions and answers to overcrowding, so my three answers to the questions are:
    Answer 1. We see in our lives that congestion occurs as a result of several reasons, they are that the large number of children greatly increases the number of the population, and traffic congestion occurs as a result of many reasons, including: the steadily increasing number of vehicles as a result of the increase in the population, narrow streets and poor infrastructure, and the increase in the number of signals Traffic instead of alternative roads and bridges that prevent congestion, including emergency causes that occur due to vehicles stalling in the streets while they are on the road, or the presence of an occasion such as graduation parties and wedding parties accompanied by motorcades, or the occurrence of many occasions and the return of expatriates with their vehicles on summer days, and the poor network Transportation, and this is a global problem witnessed by all capitals of the world, so I discovered that congestion is not only harmful to the state, but also to the human being. Difficult, and countries that suffer from weak economies cannot improve their traffic network by building bridges, for example, to reduce traffic congestion, and people rely on their own vehicles instead of transportation Public connections, and this means that there are more cars on the streets, and one of the secondary causes that lead to traffic jams is the granting of permits for the construction of random buildings, and the assault on sidewalks and streets, which causes their narrowness.
    Answer 2. The result of congestion is the breakdown of transport vehicles on the road and wasting time in waiting. The congestion harms the human being, not only the traffic movement. The congestion causes shortness of breath in the person due to the dust of congestion.
    Answer 3. There are many proposals that can be applied on the ground to solve the problem of traffic congestion, including: avoiding the concentration of services in the capital, and distributing them to the governorates to prevent vehicles and people from gathering in the streets of the capital, improving the public transport sector, and moving to the work of a train to transport numbers large number of people at one time, encouraging people to use public transportation instead of their own vehicles, establishing service complexes, commercial markets and places of entertainment, play and entertainment in areas away from congestion, ie: outside the cities, heading to the outskirts and suburbs, improving the width of the streets and the infrastructure of streets Building and extending bridges over streets helps reduce the burden on the main streets, whether bridges dedicated to cars or pedestrians, and find alternative routes through which all vehicles pass at the same time without any traffic disruptions, in addition to providing pedestrian paths, and preventing assault on sidewalks and streets. And creating designated parking lots to prevent lining up on both sides of the road, and not to give random building permits so as not to infringe on street spaces, and to oblige all buildings to construct buildings. Waqif, private and public, for cars, and work to improve the flow of car traffic through media awareness for motorists
    My suggestion for solving the crowding problem is:
    We must guide people to urban expansion by moving people to countries and regions with low populations, so that the number of people with crowding and a large population decreases, so the problem of crowding in the world and in nations and countries will be moderated and equal in the number of people in the world. On this subject, they will expand urbanization in countries with low populations

    After a lot of researching I found that one of the common problems in our today's time is air pollution. So I will invent air purifiers and place them everywhere in my country, specially the places where air pollution is the most. Those purifiers will absorb the toxic and harmful gases from the atmosphere and purify them into fresh air.And through this process we can reduce air related diseases plus we can save a lot of people at a time.

    One of the major reasons behind Climate Change is CO2 emission. The amount of Carbon dioxide is increasing every year at the atmosphere into a huge extent. In our country Bangladesh, Fossil CO2 emissions had increased by 3,210,348 tons over 2015, when CO2 emissions were 71,265,882 tons. were 74,476,230 tons in 2016. CO2 emissions increased by 4.50% over the previous year.

    How harmful CO2 emission for us?

    Carbon dioxide is one of biggest factors behind 'Greenhouse effect'. By the year 2012, global annual average temperature has increased by more than 0.8°C since 1880. Tons of CO2 is polluting the atmosphere of our mother earth every year.

    An air purifier technology can be invented which can absorb CO2 and other harmful gases of the atmosphere, transform them into purified air and send back to the atmosphere. These air purifiers should be placed everywhere once the technology is invented, specially in the place where air pollution occurs the most like the places near industries, places with dense traffic and transportation, coal and other fuel mines etc.

    The problem I am going to mention is the water clogging of the streets of Bangladesh during the rainy season. To know more about the problem, my questions were,
    1. How the water gets clogged in the streets even when the dredging system is present?
    2. What are the main causes of the water clogging in the streets?
    3. How the people of the locality has been suffering from it?
    4. How are the authority reacting towards it?

    After my research, I have found that The main cause of the water clogging in my country even with the dredging system and canals is the disposal of wastage in the canals which are allotted for the flow of rainwater. Now, the people of our locality has been facing many types of problems such as problem in transportation and the entrance of water in the engines of the car. There is another problem of closing of the shops during the clogging of water. The hygiene of the people also gets affected due to this problem. The authority takes steps every year to remove the problem but the proper instructions are not followed. I want the type of technology which would automate the drainage system in the levering system which means it would be in the road and when the water level is too much, the water would automatically go down through the pores of the system. And thus the drainage system would be free of waste disposal and other problems.

    The problem that I will talk about today is a problem that has spread a lot recently after the addiction of social networking sites at this time. The problem is to create friendships from around the world through social networking sites. Virtual friendships seem more easy and fun than real relationships and do not need to meet face to face
    My three questions to help me learn more about it are:
    1 What made a person think about forming these relationships?
    2 What are the different ends between people for establishing these relationships?
    3 What is the negative and positive impact of this problem on people?

    While searching for answers I discovered,
    1 The reasons that made this person think about forming these relationships are • That this person has a problem in forming real relationships and meeting people face to face, so he finds it better for him to try a virtual friendship relationship to experience the feeling of friendship easily and fun.
    • That he is hated by people in fact, he will try to get a feeling of love and sympathy by resorting to these relationships.
    • It is possible that he has a problem in his appearance or has a disability, which prevents people from becoming his friends, so he finds only social networking sites to establish friendships through
    2 The goals of forming these relationships differ from one person to another, as I said, some negative reasons that a person may see in himself, which compels him to form these relationships, and also there may be positive reasons that make people establish relationships via the Internet, including:
    • That a person has a talent, but does not find someone to hear it or appreciate it, so he resorts to searching for people who care about him and his talents
    • To feel involved in society: The measure of your involvement in society now depends on your knowledge of the most popular topics that are circulating among people, as it is the most popular topic in my country, the topic of the famous Korean band BTS and the Japanese animation “anime.” People go to establish friendships to feel that they are part of the community and to facilitate He has to form realistic relationships

    3 The most important thing is for a person to realize the impact of these relationships on him before he begins and engages in them. There are positive and negative effects, for example:
    Positive effects such as: • Communicating with people and people like you, where social networking sites saturate the basic human need to belong to someone or something.
    • A sense of strength, as social networking sites help us to expand our circle of relationships, accomplish all our tasks, and solve all issues within seconds.
    Negative effects such as: • Brain exhaustion, as keeping away from social networking sites allows your mind to build new ideas, so try to exercise because this increases the flow of blood, glucose, oxygen and protein to the brain.
    • Also the fear of loneliness and reducing the production of the individual

    After researching this topic, we see the size of the problem, although it has positive effects, but its negative effects appear more, especially on the teenage group. Everyone from the age of 12 does not have his own phone, but the solution to this problem is the age of the state. A rule of a certain age is obligatory for the individual to obtain a mobile phone, but we can use it to benefit from it, for example, such as distance learning as we used to do during the spread of the Corona virus, but not using it to create relationships makes A person has another false personality other than his true personality, but he must prove himself on the ground with real and realistic friends and relationships.

    The problem I'm writing about is phytoplankton and how it is reducing and making much harm to the world . actually phytoplankton are microscopic marine algae.Which use co2 ,sunlight and nutrients to produce Oxygen and useful nutrients.50% Oxygen of the living world are produced due to the phytoplankton.and it is the main base of aquatic food web and it is the primary producer on which the whole aquatic systems depended.
    My three questions to help me find out more about it are...
    1.How can phytoplankton affect climate change?
    2.How increasing phytoplankton Could Ease Climate Change?
    3.What measures should the developed countries take to this issue?
    I found that rather than working on climate it is the best aid for human brain tissue and it can boost one’s memory and improve mental clarity . And it is a good source of Omega 3 fatty acid . From 1990 we are loosing 1% of phytoplankton every year only for rising sea temperature and for the reason of water pollution . for this reason I want to build up a machine that would stop the wastage to go to the sea and collect the wastage of sea . and that machine will be vital for securing the body temperature or the molecules of phytoplankton

    This won’t work for the under developed countries or the countries which are not riverine or not closure to the seas. for the developing or underdeveloped countries they might not have enough funding for this .so we all have to come forward and surely it can be climate changing technology

    The issue I need to discuss is the spread of plastic poisons, which are probably the greatest contamination to the climate, and the customary ways of disposing of them, like copying them, are fundamentally unsafe to the environment. Be that as it may, the mechanical advancement of the cutting edge world could assist us with saving the world for the forthcoming group of people yet to come.

    The mechanical development framework is an idea in the logical field of advancement, clarifying the idea of innovative change and its rate. The mechanical advancement framework can be characterized as a "powerful organization of specialists who connect in a specific financial/modern region under a specific institutional foundation and partake in the foundation, dispersal and utilization of innovation"

    A portion of my inquiries that will assist me with finding out about this problem : _

    * Do all nations have this issue and nations that have this issue have you gone to lengths against it??

    * Since we utilize plastic consistently and it has become one of the essential materials in our lives, would we be able to supplant it with different materials??? Will it be acknowledged by the local area?

    * Can reused plastic be utilized more than once???

    *What are the after effects of racket and pandemonium on the individual and society??

    While looking for replies to these inquiries, I found that plastic is separated into two sections: recyclable plastic and non-recyclable plastic, and plastic can require 500 years to corrupt.

    Envision with me that the water bottle that you might have close to you or the pack of chips you stow away to eat while watching a film might require 500 years to disintegrate.

    I thought about another strategy to tackle this issue

    Utilizing current innovation, nanoscience and present day science, we can imagine another sort of water-solvent and recyclable plastic, hence we figured out how to discard the plastic in a harmless to the ecosystem way, and society will acknowledge it.

    In any case, after certain years our reality will be tracked down all under the water, henceforth the entire world will be as a sea.

    To stop that day from coming, we must work altogether for the benefit of the environment. Thanks for reading.

    The problem I am writing about is the shortage of useable fresh water in the world.
    3 questions that helped me find more about this problem are :
    1. Why is there a shortage of water even though most of the world is covered with it?
    2. Why can't we use ocean water?
    3. How can I turn this ocean water useable?
    Even though 3/4th of the world is covered with water, only 2% of it is useable. It is because the ocean water that surrounds us is saline. So, many countries face freshwater deficits all across the world. While researching the answers, I found out that ocean water can be turned useable through Desalination. But this method is very expensive and not all countries can implement it.
    My idea for a new technology that could solve the problem is to try a less expensive approach that could conduct desalination on a large scale near the coastal areas.

    The problem that I will talk about is the weak participation of young people in decision-making
    questions ?
    What is the role of fathers in strengthening the personality and enhancing the opinions of their children?
    How can the school enhance these capabilities?
    Will civil associations and institutions take measures to integrate young people into society and allow them to make decisions?
    Of course, parents, the school and the community will have an active role
    At home, parents should raise the level of discussion with children in order to enhance their confidence and leave the freedom for them to make thoughtful decisions after dialogue and persuasion, so that they have the ability to persuade and be convinced as well.
    In school, an attempt is made to show and develop points of creativity in one of the subjects. Each of us has hidden abilities that we can show by practicing and excluding shyness. The teacher can make the shy student a star for the week.
    As well as civil institutions that work to integrate adolescents and create a small state headed by their knowledge, applications and capabilities, developing their skills and engaging them with the local community
    I really like the parliament program that schools implement to serve as a cabinet that gives the opportunity for communication, communication, building ideas, elections, and getting closer to others.

    At some point, technology can solve community problems. There should be no significant advances in medical devices, removable and therapeutic methods. This should greatly improve transportation, dining tables, and message sharing. Face-to-face on Facebook and watch videos on YouTube, can technology cause the world to be destroyed without seeing a deadly dead end? Would you like to see the great background of fake news and rumors on social media? The third aspect is careful, and one might say that technology is a tool that can be used to solve or create problems. This raises a question to answer: what problems can technology solve? That's not a simple question either. We started talking in advance about the relationship between the world of technology and its science, and then talked about another article about the impact of technology on the labor market. Here we see how technology is affecting the reaction of society ... what about? First of all, we must recognize that technology itself cannot solve community problems. For example, the Internet and social networks, mobile networks and mobile networks of the last 50 years cannot solve the problems of poverty and large income inequality.

    The problem I'm writing about is radioactive pollution it is one of the most serious and effect on environment, My three questions to help me find out more about it are : (1) How Is Radioactive Pollution Caused? (2) Why is radioactive pollution dangerous? (3)What are the major sources of radioactive pollution? In researching the answers, I have found out radioactive pollution occurs by man made, radioactivity and it is the main reason like instances of spillages over oceans when ships hit glaciers or coral reefs and end up releasing chemicals on waterways and in the atmosphere and The majority of these chemicals, including petroleum products, have a significant level of radiation and this is one the major sources, also some radioactivity is generated naturally, The sources are gasses and minerals that are present in the land, Though they cannot escape unless there is mining or extraction done, and by radioactive pollution can cause damage to tissues and DNA in genes and in my opinion this is major problem that can occur by radioactive pollution, we can reduce it by technological ways by reducing the gasses emission that causes it.

    The problem I'm writing about is Carbon emissions from cars, which constitute the largest proportion of global warming and climate change.

    My three questions to help me find out more about it are Can we really get to zero emissions in the future!?
    Does excessive use of vehicles and cars and overpopulation affect the environment?!
    How can we reduce carbon emissions!?

    In researching the answers, I have found out first,To achieve net zero emissions, we need a massive transformation in how we produce and consume electricity. We need a newer, better transportation system. We need to stop deforestation. We need a climate-friendly agricultural system.Human life is negatively affected by small particles of pollutants and ozone gas, which are formed due to vehicles that emit carbon dioxide during the combustion process and therefore vehicles and cars contribute significantly to emissions.
    To reduce our emissions: we need to actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or offset its effects and It also requires international cooperation.

    If governments speed up their actions to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, which means reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
    My idea for a new technology that could help solve the problem is Inventing cars that run on renewable energy or work on magnetic force and the force of repulsion between them . This technology would work for everyone because it's It will be the turning point of the century, the use of renewable energy and the reduction of emissions, thus preserving our planet Earth.It will be implemented taking into consideration the changing infrastructure and the cooperation of the world's governments with each other to implement it

    The problem I am writing about is the lack of fresh water, and I have some questions, the first of which is why people are reckless with water, and secondly, where is the law punishing them, and thirdly, why is the percentage of water so low in some countries.I discovered a technological invention that increases fresh water in some countries that lack water.So I thought of making technological machines that desalinate waste and salt water.But it will not work with people very well because of the low experience and skill, it needs a person who knows how to deal with technological machines.

    The technological revolution has certainly changed our lives. Without it, we would still live without electricity, ships, planes, trains, cars and tools.. We will return to live like cavemen, but some of us may wonder: Was technology as good for our environment as it was for us? Climate change

    Our issues of climate change and technology go back to the Second Industrial Revolution in the 1880s when people started using coal to generate electricity for homes and industries. At first, people could only look at the benefits. Today, of course, we all know that generating electricity has a cost, because it emits tons of carbon. This, of course, leads to pollution and extreme weather conditions, among many other things.
    Over the years, our population has grown. Our needs have also increased, and it is not far to say that no one can live without electricity today. In fact, global electricity consumption is constantly increasing year on year.
    As electricity consumption grows, of course, so does carbon emissions. To help you understand how much carbon we're releasing into the atmosphere, these numbers from our Greenhouse Gas Equations Calculator may help:

    First, we must admit that technology in itself cannot solve societal problems. Technology, for example, cannot solve the problem of poverty or the large disparity in income rates. For example, in the past five decades, the Internet, search engines, social networks, mobile phones ... etc. have appeared almost all in In the United States of America, however, poverty rates there continued to fluctuate between 13% -15%, according to an interesting and thought-provoking article written by the editor-in-chief of ACM Communications magazine in the January 2017 issue.. This magazine belongs to the Association of Computing Machinery, which is one of the The most important institutions in the world in all areas of computers, the article referred to above discusses how to use technology in the best possible way to serve humans, and gave poverty rates in America as an example of a problem that did not benefit from technological progress, so why did technology not help here?

    The problem lies in the belief of many that technology is the solution and this is wrong. Technology is just a tool or an auxiliary factor. If we want to combat the problem of wage inequality or poverty rates, we must ask: What are the causes of this problem? Is it corruption? Is poor education the problem? If it is corruption, how can technology be used to reduce corruption? How can technology be used to improve the educational process? And so on.

    So the first step to solving a societal problem will often need sociologists and psychologists first, for example, if the poor education is one of the reasons for the increase in poverty rates as a result of unemployment (an employer will not hire someone who does not understand the required specialization, for example), then psychology will tell us that the current generation has reduced its ability to memorize Because there is no need for it and its ability to focus has decreased due to the spread of social networks that only need a quick reading of a few lines, and this means that the educational process needs to change to accommodate these changes in the new generations and this comes before even changing the content of the curricula, here comes the role of technology that gives information about Through short lectures that the student can listen to and repeat whenever he needs to, and through computer programs that give the student questions of varying difficulty when the student gives the correct answer, then identify the topics that the student did not understand, explain to him and answer his questions, then ask him again and so on... this method What is new in education may not be accepted at first by the society that is accustomed to traditional exams and a family that is only concerned with grades “because we are a country of certificates” ... Here comes the role of sociologists to Awareness of the family and society... So in order for technology to help solve society’s problems, it first needs a society that is ready for progress (ready for progress, not willing and dreaming of progress, and that is enough!), and this can only come with the help of sociologists, education and psychology

      This is a well researched and though provoking comment balanced_situation. You have suggested a reform in education to help people benefit from a world where technology is more commonplace. Why do you think these changes have not been put in place before? What will change to make people ready for progress, and not 'dreaming of progress' as you put it?

    The problem I am writing about is the environmental pollution
    The first question: What is ecological pollution?
    The second question: How can we reduce the phenomenon of environmental pollution?
    The third question: What are the causes of environmental pollution?
    While searching for answers, environmental pollution is the process of mixing any components of the environment, whether it is water, air or soil, with harmful substances or energy, regardless of what these substances are and the amount of damage they cause. Some of these substances cause direct temporary damage, while others do not show their effect. destructive only after a long period of time has elapsed, which leads to severe environmental disruption that reduces the quality of life on Earth
    Secondly, we can reduce this phenomenon by using methods of recycling solid waste, stopping nuclear activities, disposing of liquid and solid gaseous waste using sound scientific methods, and also by spreading awareness among members of society of the need to preserve the environment from pollution.
    So I will create a robot that cleans streets, parks and other places
    Third, the causes of environmental pollution are factory smoke, waste water that results from kitchens and bathrooms, gases resulting from burning waste, pesticides used in agriculture, and cigarette smoke.

    Well, "technology" for me, this term is one of the most complex terms ever, because when you look at its positives, you forget all its negatives and feel that without it we will not be able to continue our lives, but also if we look at its negatives, we will also see that it has negatives that outweigh its positives, so it becomes a term that he sees Everyone has their own perspective, so today I'm going to talk about how technology helped solve problems and how it created problems
    First, the positive effects of technology:
    1_ Technology has employed science and knowledge in many areas of life in a deliberate way to facilitate the lives of individuals, how was the suffering of scientists and inventors in the past when they were working on their discoveries, as their only reference was books and they spent years searching in books until their search was completed, and an example of that is the scientist John Albie Spencer, the inventor of the thermal sensor, spent 10 years researching books until he invented the thermal sensor for us, but at this time technology was the reason for the advancement of the level of education, as it brought about a huge scientific and knowledge revolution that contributed to an increase in the number of scientific inventions.
    2_ Raising the level of the transportation and communication sector, we are not aware of the suffering of people in the past in the problem of mobility, as they depended on animals during their movement, but little by little inventions began and electrical machines were invented that depend on modern technology to save time and effort.
    3_ Increasing production efficiency, technology has greatly helped to help increase agricultural production, as I, as a citizen of Gaza, our people depend on agriculture to provide their livelihood, but in the last period, production met a significant weakness that led to many negatives. This is all due to the problem of soil pollution and technology has helped solve This problem is also with modern inventions
    4_ It is also a beautiful thing that technology helped maintain, which is strengthening family ties, as technology helped maintain relationships between one family, for example, such as instant communication between them through social networking sites or a quick call and participation by creating a group that includes family members to talk about, and this helps in eliminating Time with family and learn about their hobbies.
    5_ Technology has also helped in a slightly sensitive problem for some people, who are people with special needs, as they may not be able to make friends in reality, so they go to form relationships on social networking sites.
    Negative effects of technology:
    Despite the positive effects of technology, it has many negatives that affect mental health, especially children and adolescents, and affect social ties:
    1_ A big problem was technology caused by the increase in unemployment, since since the emergence of technology, inventions began to appear and with each new day we have new inventions and many inventions such as robots and modern technological machines, and this causes a financial crisis due to the replacement of human power with technology
    Increasing the rate of water and air pollution Technology has contributed to an increase in the rate of water and air pollution through technologies that emerged after the industrial revolution in the world, such as the technology of using fossil fuels that produce large amounts of greenhouse gases that harm the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide nitric oxide, methane, and increasing the global warming problem
    Technology plays a major role in our lives in many fields such as agriculture, industry, and education, yet it is not without defects that have negative effects on our daily lives and on the environment if it is used incorrectly, such as the lack of privacy and the increase in the unemployment rate, in addition to the great pollution in the sector. plant, and the danger of waste residues on the surface of the globe, and the pollution of water and air, and its effects that harm humans, so it is necessary to use moderation in the use of technology and deal with it with caution to avoid its damage

    The problem I want to talk about is the spread of plastic pollutants, which are one of the biggest pollutants to the environment, and the traditional methods of getting rid of them, such as burning them, are very harmful.
    My three questions will help me learn more about this problem.

    1) Do all countries have the problem of the spread of plastic pollutants and the countries that have this problem have you taken measures against it??

    2) Since we use plastic on a daily basis and it has become one of the basic materials in our lives, can we replace it with other materials?? Will it be accepted by society?

    3) Can reused plastic be used more than once??

    While searching for answers, I first discovered, that the plastic glass we use a day takes at least 5 centuries to decompose and today there are more than 300 million tons of plastic in the seas and oceans This number could rise to 450 million by 2025, and this plastic is concentrated in certain areas of the oceans, where there are five areas full of plastic materials in the world's seas.
    To address this problem, wax worm larvae are used because they are a reason for processing plastics, as they break down chemical bonds in the plastic.

    The problem I want to write about is climate change as the most important global issues are serious and my three questions will help me learn more about this problem!
    What is climate change?
    What are the causes of climate change?
    Ways to reduce climate change?
    During the search for answers, first, climate change is any effective and long-term change in the average weather condition that occurs for a particular region. Second, the causes of climate change are natural causes such as volcanic eruptions and the sun, and human causes by humans such as deforestation and tree cutting, and thirdly, ways to reduce climate change use cleaner and more energy Sustainable and non-use of fossil fuels and the use of alternatives to carbon We can invent mainstream electric cars and build alternative energy sources to replace coal to create more efficient buildings, air conditioning systems and water analysis systems
