the area of communication? First of all, I will focus on the
advantages before finally focusing on the drawbacks.
begin with, I'd like to give a definition of this notion. It's the
idea that the world develops and improves in all areas which implies
many changes that don't always please averybody. These changes can be

surgery or cloning. In any case, they have become vital. I think
that new technologies are a good things because it's progress. But
you must know how to use them well.
