Alternative: For A Better Change

Alternative: For a Better Change

We are familiar with day and night, sum – white , sweet and sour , dry and wet, heat and cold, high and low, thick and thin. There is a wide of contrast everywhere. Within each category we have a lot of alternatives to choose from. We are also used to various things in this world besides the way we work , and enjoy life. But everybody don’t have to do life just the same way. In the past, science gave us alternatives to what We were quite used to, traditionally . Man- kind all the time thought something out of box , unusual, and unknown. Newer technologies always emerge and some have revolutionised the way we thought and we live.

10. Organ transplants:

Alternative 1 : Organ Transplant

In 1954, Dr. Joseph Murray removed the kidney from one hu- man patient and implanted it in another The recipient accepted the kidney as its own rather than rejecting it as a foreign body. Researchers developed drugs that could squelch a transplant recipient’s immune system long enough for the new organ to become incorporated into its new body. Today, with new heart, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas or intestine — any are receiving a new lease on life.

9. Robots and artificial intelligence:

Alternative 2: Robotics

The term * robot” was coined by Czechoslovakian playwright Karel Capek in 1920 — “robota’ being a Czech word for tedious labor – but the first real industrial robot was built in 1954 by George Devol. Five years later , the Massachusetts Institute of Technology founded its Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in a quest to mechanically mimic human minds as well as hands. Today, robots assemble products better , faster and often cheaper than manual laborers. Today more than 8 million US airline flights a year are scheduled, guided and flown with the superhuman assistance of advanced software.

8. Electronic funds transfer:

Electronic Fund Transfer

The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco set up a paperless transfer system with the Los Angeles branch in 1972. By the end of the decade, instantaneous transfers of millions of dollars in value between banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions had become common. The real appeal of EFT today is its trickle down to the individual: You get grab cash from your bank account anywhere in the world, and use digital wallets like PayPal, Google Pay to buy and sell stuff on eBay or Amazon without sending money or cheques through the mail.

7. Nuclear power:

Nuclear Power Plant

When the Queen herself switched on the world’s first atomic power plant at Calder Hall outside London in 1956, nuclear reactors were seen as a source of cheap, pollution-free energy. Despite the partial meltdown in 1979 at the Three Mile island reactor in US there is a question on nukes as safe power . Similarly the Chernobyl nuclear blast. Nonetheless, the US today has about 100 active plants that generate 20% of the country’s electricity – second only to coal as a source of power — and have been steadily increasing their capacity. India is seriously considering it as a better alternative.

6. Mobile phones:

The first call was made from the Manhattan Hilton in 1973 by Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher who rang up his rival at AT&T Bell Labs to test the new phone. In January 2019, 67%, i.e., 5.1B people around the world own one and cellular networks. It is serving Internet access at broadband speeds through thin air.

5. Space flight:

Space Flight

The development of hundreds of enabling technologies , like synthetic fibers and integrated computer circuits, necessary to fly men to the Moon and back has given us spin offs that made our lives better. We also saw the earth rise and earth the size of a rupee coin. We have understood that there is only one earth and we are all brothers and sisters.

4. Personal computer:

Computers are cool They are used to play games, keep diaries, 3D printing of structures, computer aided manufacturing, numerically controlled au tomatic machines, prepare documents, and text messages or chat or make video calls with anybody across the country. Thanks to the PC.

3. Digital media:

Digitalized audio, pictures, movies, and text have made our world beautiful and entertaining too.

Even an amateur edit reality jure it from scratch — with a keyboard and a mouse. Digital media can be copied over and over nearly for free, stored permanently without fading, and sent around the world in seconds.

2. Genetic engineering:

Genetic Engineering

Everyone knows Watson and Crick, who unraveled the se- cret of DNA in 1953. But have you heard of Boyer and Cohen, who constructed the first organism with combined DNA from dif- ferent species in 1973? Today, an estimated 70% of processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients, such as soybeans or corn engineered for higher crop yields. Of course, the much bigger potential — good and bad is in engineering humans. It might prevent birth defects, and diseases later in life. But the side effects could be disastrous and unknown.

1. The Internet:


It is the most affordable mass medium ever, and a curse to anyone who would use it wrongly. In July 2019, there were 4.3B active internet users in the world, encompassing 56% of the global population. China, India and US rank ahead all other nations in terms of internet usage. It remains to be seen whether the high speed connections to one another will transform us for better, or for worse.

Fast Forward

Having highlighted some great develop ments in the past that improved the qual- ity of life of mankind let us also know that there is a coordinated international effort to develop alternatives, Life will become bor ing if everything looks alike or do everything the same way. In fact there are alternative for us to choose from, in everything in this world. Choice and freedom makes our lives great. Numerous alternative methods have already been developed and validated to Reduce, Replace, or Refine and Reuse, Mechanistic information can offer insight into the likely human relevance.

Alternate History

Can we think of a world without war? It would have looked totally different. Perhaps there would have been only one world where everybody living in complete harmony sharing the earth resources commonly.

In the 21st century, he have a politically divided world. What would be the next big change?

Alternate Education

Coercive schooling, which tragically is the norm in our society, suppresses curiosity and overrides children’s natural ways of learning. It promotes anxiety, depression and feelings of helplessness that all too often reach pathological levels. Real alternatives already exist. For most of human history, children educated themselves through observing, exploring, questioning, playing and participating.

These educative instincts still work beautifully for children who are provided with conditions that allow them to flourish. Self-directed approaches have been used successfully by young people representing the whole normal range of personalities and diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. These approaches nurture traits such as initiative, creativity, playfulness, and love of learning traits that promote life satisfaction and bring success in our rapidly changing world.

Alternative Medicine and therapies

Good health is an outcome of a good life style and diseases are a part of our life cy des We must think of eating less and resting less . Eating right and working hard is the key. We must look beyond eating pills and undergoing surgeries.

For treating diseases we have different system like Allopathy, Homeopathy, and Ayurveda. Similarly, there are therapies like Acupressure (kick-starts the body’s self-healing abilities by using the fingers to activate key pressure points on the body, which releases tension, in crease circulation, boost immunity and reduce pain), Aromatherapy (soothing fragrances are invigorating and relaxes our body and mind), Halotherapy (is a noninvasive treatment that cure a range of pulmonary and skin ailments, and to boost immunity), Heliotherapy (is known to rejuvenate and heal using natural light).

Magnet Therapy (is yet another which is in line to the natural forces that operate in this universe) and much more. Alternative to Pollution: According to the study published in the journal Ange wandte Chemie, novel catalyst can help turn CO, into fuel. While not a climate cure-all, the advance could significantly reduce the near-term impact on global warming. Another latest approach at Stanford University in the US has yielded four times more ethane, propane and butane than existing methods that use similar processes.

Alternative Fuel:

Electric vehicles (EVS) use a battery to store the electric energy that powers the motor, Gas-electric hybrids — to start/stop and run, Plug-in hybrids , Biodies- el, Ethanol-flex fuel , LPG or CNG, Propane, Fuel cell – burns hydrogen cleanly and Solar power – free and clean. In all these cases it requires a pressurised tank or battery to store, or proper refueling infrastructure.

Alternate fuel engine

Environmental concerns and governm regulations have made finding substitute for the conventional gasoline powered in ternal combustion engine a priority for bord manufacturers and consumers. By 2025, challenging target for traditional technolo gies is increasing numbers of zero-emission or plug-in hybrid cars with an average d 54.5 miles per gallon. Depending on com siderations like usage patterns, efficiency, and cost , there are at least a dozen substitutes for gasoline as motor fuel , including electricity, natural gas, vegetable oil , and even sunlight .

Alternate Transportation

The problem caused by fossil fuel burning, the related global warming and health is sues, new technologies have emerged like Hyper loop (pulse driven), Maglev (magnetically powered), solar planes like Solar Impulse and solar induced roads which let vehicles ply.

Alternate Economy:

Alternate Economy

There has never been a more significant time in history for countries, companies, communities and individuals to steer towards a sustainable future. Since 2015, when the UN set their 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030, governments and businesses around the world have increased efforts to address the environmental, social and economic challenges to create a better tomorrow. A focus on bioeconomy should make environmentally-friendly industries such as bioenergy, biochemicals and biopharmaceuticals that will be technologydriven and create ‘bio-hubs’ that is sustainable in future.

Alternate Warfare:

The future war are said to be waged not on the ground but electronically , with powerful lasers beams and unmanned vehicles. Even an artificial intelligence driven drones can single out targets that avoids mass destruction and large scale killing.
