What is the role of science in modern society?

None would deny that almost every convenient thing we take for granted emerged thanks to science. It is true for even trivial things like a wheel and the same goes for more complicated things. I firmly believe that if there weren’t any scientists we would be living in caves even now. As for modern society we have achieved a lot in terms of technological advances but we have a lot to think about. What we have now has been gained at nature’s expense. As we know most of the natural resources we use aren’t renewable so human beings ought to come up with a solution to this problem.

What do you think about computer games?

I am not fond of them. If I have a spare minute I will find something useful to do apart from playing a video game. However many people become obsessed with them. To my mind playing a game has little to do with popularity of games with the addicted. To put it into words gaming is a form of escapism. In our sometimes harsh world people run up against different problems. Most people successfully deal with some problems typically minor ones. Some people easily sail through really difficult situations. Almost anyone can get through all problems without traces. Any misfortune has an impact on us no matter it’s invisible or catastrophic. I feel sorry for those who gave up though my choice is to fight back.

What does new technology enable people to do without leaving their homes?

I suppose we can do almost everything. The Internet has come in handy as it is a really useful means of communication. We can communicate via net. There are loads of social networks on the net. Teenagers are crazy about vkontakte whereas their parents are keen on odnoklassniki. Those who know one foreign language prefer facebook. Some people use skype which is a computer program to make videocalls all over the world for free. In some professions it is possible to work without commuting to your place of employment. It’s true for software engineers, designers, and even translators. You can even get education in this way. Some universities offer the so call distance learning. A student connects to the university computer to watch lectures on line or do some tests. If you like travelling you may be pleasantly surprised by an opportunity to book tickets via the net. Visiting special sites you can find out about vacant seats on a train of your choice. Lazy bones can even travel without switching off their computers. There are special sites at which you can see what is going near the Eiffel Tower right now. It is possible due to numerous webcams broadcasting via the net.

What appliances help you do your household chores?

Numerous… To iron something you need an iron. Plugging in a washing machine is the best way to wash clothes. The same goes for washing dishes. Some say so. We don’t have a dish washer at home. A vacuum cleaner is another appliance without which I can’t imagine any tiding up. Sometimes we can’t do without a cloth and a broom especially after yet another power cut
