PART B_2

There has been an enormous change in our society due to the advancements in technology. For instance, life has become convenient and everyday chores do not occupy too much of our time. Moreover, technology provides access to almost everything. However, with many advantages coming with disadvantages, people use it recklessly. As a result, it complicates our lives. In today’s lecture, I’d like to introduce the two side effects of technology in our lives; it affects human relationships and increases environmental pollution.
Technology has transformed human relationships. Our interaction with other people is essential. Without it, we tend to become depressed, anxious, and lonely. People who spend too much time with technology may not develop appropriate social skills, resulting in gloominess and an inability to connect with others.
Technology increases the amount of pollution. Developing technology is one of the major factors in causing pollution that leads to global warming. It creates large amounts of waste, used computers and electronics are disposed of when they break or malfunction. Dumping of waste into rivers and water systems by industries is an environmental threat.
Experts have discovered that in addition to making our lives more comfortable, it can damage our communication skills. Whether it contributes to society or results in environmental threats, humans should think about the conservation of the environment and the betterment of human interaction.

The professor is talking about enormous changes in our society due to the advancements in technology. For instance, life has become convenient and everyday chores do not occupy too much of our time. However, with many advantages coming with disadvantages, people use it recklessly. According to the professor, technology has side effects. The professor introduces two of the side effects of technology: it affects human relationships and increases environmental pollution.
First, the professor explains how technology has transformed human relationships. The professor also mentioned that people who spend too much time with technology may not develop appropriate social skills, resulting in gloominess and an inability to connect with others.
Second, the professor explains that developing technology is one of the major factors in causing pollution that leads to global warming. The professor also mentioned that technology creates large amounts of waste, used computers, and electronics are disposed of when they break or malfunction. Dumping of waste into rivers and water systems by industries is an environmental threat.
In this short lecture, I learned that humans should think about the conservation of the environment and the betterment of human interaction by limiting the use of technology.

PART C_1

I will read aloud the lecture below. Please listen and take notes.

PART C_2

Today, some fruits and vegetables have undergone genetic engineering for the crop yield, resistance to insect damage, protection from plant diseases, and increased nutritional value, according to the Food Development Authority. In the market, we call them genetically modified or GMO crops. In today’s lecture, I’d like to introduce the pros and cons of GMO crops.
Manufacturers use genetic alterations to give foods beneficial traits. For example, they have designed two new kinds of apples that turn less brown when cut or bruised. The reasoning usually includes making crops more immune to diseases as they grow. Manufacturers also engineer fruits and vegetables to be more nutritious or tolerant of herbicides — a pesticide used to kill unwanted plants. Crop protection is the main reason behind this type of genetic modification. Most of all, genetic modification can also increase the nutritional value or enhance flavor.
Some claim that there are many downsides, but the evidence varies, and the health issues associated with GMO foods are still on debate. Research is ongoing. Some people believe that GMO foods have more potential to cause allergic reactions. It is because they may contain genes from an allergen — a food that prompts an allergic reaction. Some researchers conclude that consuming GMO foods can add to the development of cancer. Researchers debate that the mutations in DNA cause it.
Because genetic modification can make crops immune to diseases and tolerant of herbicides, the method can double the amount of food that farmers can grow. It can reduce prices and contribute to food security. Also, because genetically engineering foods is a relatively new practice, little is known about the long-term effects and safety. As consumers, we should be careful with the foods that we intake.
