One Hundred Years Of Change Essay
Life After 100 years Person like you, me and many others in this earth has many thoughts and wonders in our mind that what will be the living life of human being after 100 years. The main question is, is human activities going be to replace by machines (robots, computers etc) and humans being lazy doing his/her work and expecting everything to be automatic or can be an imaginary life of machines take over every activities of humans. After 100 years we can expect lot of changes in our life. We can see lot of changes in the way we live. For example is our Social life, technology that plays important role, economy that can change countries development and in one word we can say the entire life. The big change we can expect is the technology (Internet, robots, and space development) that can change entire our life, it can be the way we live, work, communicate etc. In this essay, we are going to choose three areas and we will see what they are in and after 100 years. Those areas are Internet, robots and space. Our second and interesting topic is Internet. Currently internet is the fastest communication channel in the world. One can access the Internet anytime and anywhere in the world. After 100 years one expects lot of changes in internet technology. Internet can make human a lazy person but can save time, as with few clicks one can get everything he/she needs. Now we can see online shopping websites, but in future one can see online shopping malls, where from one website one can get everything from food to cloths, so everything we do is online with one mouse and few clicks that will change our life and save time. In few words I could say that this one technology can change the entire life of human being. Third topic is Robots; is an interesting area we can talk about. After 100 years, everything will be done and replaced by Robots instead of human. May be you will stop hiring one maid for your home instead you buy a robot that will do everything of you from cooking, washing clothes, cleaning your house, protecting your home (as security guard), will alert you doing your daily things (as your personal assistant), will take care of your health and etc. So after 100 years If I imagine, I wanted a robot, I would like to have robot machine that I will use it as my car, my house maid, my personal assistant and lot more. Because Robots no need to sleep, no need to rest, no need to go to doctor, just need a power to run it. Our last topic is Space; more common to talk about space is moon. Recently scientists found out water on moon, so may be in future, humans start migrating to moon. May be in 100 years and later we can expect few more places like moon to live and maybe those will be tourist’s destinations one can visit. May be Microsoft Company CEO and richest person in the world, Bill Gates grandsons will be the first one to buy some property in the moon and migrate there. So we can expect lot of changes in the space technology in and after 100 years.

Historical Themes of Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude
Garcia Marquez has said that "One Hundred Years of Solitude is not a history of Latin America, it is a metaphor for Latin America" (Dreifus 1983:1974). The historical themes include conquest and colonization, settlement and scientific discovery, civil wars, foreign economic intervention, technological change, and finally the decay and disappearance of a long-established way of life.
The original Spanish conquest is alluded to when, in the first chapter, Jose Arcadio Buendia finds an old suit of armor and the remains of a galleon, mysteriously stranded several kilometers from the sea. The early Spanish colonization and the devastating pirate raids of the English sailor, Sir Francis Drake, are referred to in the second chapter. Subsequently, no more is made of this theme.
Pioneer settlement is the real beginning of the story of Macondo. It is at first "a village of twenty houses of mud and canestalks on the bank of a diaphanous river. . . . The world was so new, many things did not have names, and to mention them one had to point with a finger." (71) Just so: when the real pioneer families made their first crude homes in the forests of the Americas, they found many things-plants, animals, minerals - they had never seen before and for which they had no names. That was one reason Europeans referred to the western hemisphere lands as the New World. Typical of such villages, which were established on the banks of rivers in all the Spanish territories, Macondo is governed by its founder, Jose Arcadio Buendia, as a kind of village chief; Ursula, his wife, cultivates a little plot of land and the men, apparently, also hunt for food (although hunting is not specifically mentioned until much later). The village, then, is poor but self-sufficient. (To maintain the rigorous logic of the narrative, there should be twenty-two houses in the first settlement, since Jose Arcadio Buendia led twenty-one families, plus his own, in the founding. Twenty was probably chosen in this instance because Garcia Marquez wanted a smooth, flowing rhythm in his opening lines, which would have been disrupted by an extra syllable: veintidos...
