Background: Assembly lines were first used by Ransome Eli Olds in 1901. He used the assembly line while making cars.
Problem solved or created: Ransome solved problems with the assembly line. Instead of doing many steps all the workers need to do is one step and then they pass on to the next worker.
Connection: Assembly lines connects both with the Scientific Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. It connects to the Scientific Revolution because the Scientific Revolution was time for progress. Ransome Eli Olds idea was to quickly and effectively produce a product to sell and make profit. It connects to the Industrial Revolution because in the factories where many people worked they used assembly lines in making the products. A lot of the factories were making clothing while others were making food and many other daily things.
Synthesis: Our world is different in many ways because of this. A couple reasons the assembly line has helped might include the way toys and anything that needs to be assembled. Or in a factory that might sell cars. You need people to put on the door, make sure everything is working right and many others. There are many things to do in making a car and one person can'r memorize it all. It would be easier to be an expert at one thing.
Background- Coal has been used for centuries to give heat. It wasn't until the Industrial Revolution that coal mines were dug in order to retrieve more coal for the coal demanding factories.
Problems solved or created: Coal couldn't be collected by itself, it needs workers to collect the coal. That meant being in a dark cave hundreds of feet underground where there were many dangers. Many died from fire damp (poisonous gas), from the mines collapsing and so many more issues.
Connection: Coal connects both to the Industrial Revolution and the topic of Environmentalism. It connects to the Industrial Revolution because as the demand for coal raised, coal mines were being dug deeper into the ground then ever before. It connects to Environmentalism because in our modern day, we still use coal for everyday uses. We use it for fuel for our machines, energy for manufacturing and many more. Because of these everyday uses many believe this is affecting our Earth and the temperatures.
Synthesis: Our world is different in many ways because of coal. Some reasons is sometimes hidden to our thoughts. When you go to school and take out some paper to do your classwork, it takes coal to make that paper. When you take a walk with your dog on cement it takes coal to produce that.
Awareness of the environment started in the 20th century and into the 21st century.
The time when the people realized life could change and machines were invented to make labor more easy.
Background: The battery was first invented in the 1800's by a man named Alessandro Volta. A battery is used to change chemical energy into electrical energy.
Problem solved or created: Battery have done a little of solving and creating. In modern day, batteries are an easy way to use something like a walkie talkie or a phone without having it connected to a cord. But, it has also caused problems of what happens to them after they are all used up. Batteries are not environmentally friendly when put in the earth.
Connection: Batteries connect both to the Scientific Revolution and to Environmentalism. It connects to the scientific revolution because this is when it was created. Batteries were built upon once the idea was laid down by Alessandro Volta. Gaston Pante, Georges Leclanche and Thomas Edison also put their ideas down. It is connected to Environmentalism as a back up for not using fossil fuels. There are pros and cons to everything but to some who strongly believe in environmentalism, instead of fuel in their car they have switched to batteries.
Synthesis: Our world is different in many ways because of batteries. Some ways include cordless telephones and other little gadgets, cars that don't use fossil fuel with plenty of other examples. Batteries have evolved a long way since its debut in the 1800's.
Background: Deforestation can happen easily. When a company need trees, they will buy the land, cut the trees and then go buy more land. It won't make a big different if only that company is doing it but if everyone does, trees don't grow that fast.
Problem solved or created: Deforestation has definitely caused problems. Some animals tend to go extinct, some trees give fruit, less shade and cover and many more.
Connections: Deforestation can be connected to the Industrial Revolution and to Environmentalism. It is connect to the Industrial Revolution because during the Industrial Revolution trees were often cut down for heating homes and factories furnaces. Deforestation was becoming a problem in Europe. Deforestation is connected with Environmentalism because a part of the Earth is the trees. It is ok to cut down trees as long as you put more up. Trees are an important part of the Earth that we need, which is why they are here in the first place.
Synthesis: Deforestation has impacted our world today by helping us realize what life might be like without the trees. It helps us to realize what might happen and to take steps to keep deforestation from happening.
Background: Tuberculosis, also known as the white plague and top disease during the Industrial Revolution, took the lives of many. Problems solved or created: Tuberculosis did not solve any one's problems, it only made things worse. Connections: Tuberculosis is connected to the Industrial Revolution and the Scientific Revolution. It was connected to the Industrial Revolution because of the people that moved in to the cities which centered the disease. It is connected to the Scientific Revolution because that is where the cures were found. Synthesis: The experience of tuberculosis has made doctors prepared with medicines and treatments for the different cases of tuberculosis.
Background: About 234 million major surgeries happen every year. Surgery, the branch of medicine that deals with getting rid of disease already affecting the body, comes with disease. Especially during the early times when there was no hygiene.
Problems solved or created: As surgery improved, problems started to be settled and people lived longer.
Connection: Surgery connects to the Scientific Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. It connects to the Scientific Revolution because that was when it was improved by many scientists including Fabrizlo Hildanus, Louis Pasteur, Humphrey Davy and many more. It connects to the Industrial Revolution because this was a time when disease centralized into the cities causing many deaths. Surgery, not yet what it is today, helped many.
Synthesis: Our world is a different place today because of surgery. Surgery has helped many survive before or while a disease, like cancer, seeks to destroy the body.
Ideas started in the very and no one was very sure about anything. All they knew was life went around and around. Not until the Scientific Revolution and the Industrial Revolution did ideas start being thought upon as something new and changeable. Ideas are connected to the Scientific and the Industrial Revolution. It is connected to the Scientific Revolution because it is why the people started to invent, to make life easier. It is connected to the Industrial Revolution because this is when factory owners either invented or took other inventions to use in their factories to raise the number made each day.
Ideas has helped our world today in letting new things come to be and so life can more on. New ideas, new things come every day and it is accepted because we know from the scientific revolution that new things can be created.
Background: This was when the first refracting telescope was invented. The telescope was invented by Hans Lippershay. A year later Galileo created a telescope to see into the night sky. Problem solved or created: Hans Lippershay and Galileo both contributed to the discovery of our Earth, along with space. Their discovery has lead up to what we know today and how we make predictions about the weather and natural disasters. Connection: The telescope is both connected to the Scientific Revolution and environmentalism. It connects to the scientific revolution because this is when it was first created by Hans Lippershay. Other scientists added on to it to eventually lead up to our more advanced machines like the Hubble Telescope which is actually in space. It connects to Environmentalism because telescopes help us understand and appreciate where we are and what we have, which is what Environmentalism is based upon. Our modern telescopes can take pictures of Earth and look to space, where not many have experienced. Synthesis: Our world is different in many ways because of the telescope. The telescope sees what we wouldn't have imagined, it helps forecast the weather and it was all because of an invention started in the Scientific Revolution.
When new ideas about the human body, physics, biology, and chemistry were realized.
Background: Medicine has been used for centuries with many different methods. In the past it might include having a whole made in your skull, but in our modern day it usually includes a trip to your doctor for checkups.
Problem solved or created: Medicine has definately helped solve problems in helping our bodies fight the disease making us weaker.
Connection: Medicine is connected to the Scientific Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. It is connected to the Scientific revolution because that is when it was improved upon and become more like what we think of medicine as. It is connected to the Industrial Revolution because it was a time of a lot of disease spreading through the city.
