Misuse Of Technology

While ultrasound can be an effective technolgy in examining internal body parts, and even to find the condition of an unborn child; this has been used for abortion test in many developing countries where the gender bias is still on. While abortion is legal in most part of the world, its really sad to know how the technolgy is being misued to carry out unhuman activity. Hundred of thousands of abortions of abortions are carried out each year depending upon ultrasound results of whether the unborn child is a girl or a boy. How pathetic!

I also came across this story of a weird looking child who died immidiately after his birth. I'm not sure about the scientific reasons behind such child birth, but the child somehow looks more like a frog than a human.

Promoting Trade and Investment

The defining purpose of the International Trade Administration (ITA) is helping to create economic opportunity for American workers and businesses. By promoting trade and investment we are promoting prosperity and a better world.

To increase trade and investment, ITA helps U.S. companies navigate foreign markets. We help educate companies about how to tailor their activities to the specific market with respect to their product slate, financing, marketing, assembly and logistics. While the United States exports more than any other country, making that first export can still be a daunting challenge for a small or medium sized business. ITA helps equip those businesses with the knowledge and tools that they need to meet that exporting challenge, and by extension, promote the trade and investment that helps us all.
