Two cradles of civilization had been growing since antiquity in the then known part of the world: one belonging to the succession of Abrahamic faith in Western Eurasia and the other dynastic succession to East in China. There remained limited contacts between the two till late in the modern history and the two civilizations developed in different milieus of culture and mindsets: religion pervading private and public life in the former and it taking a back seat and not intersecting the public domain in China. These differences would shape the inner drives of the disparate people in different ways in times to come. While the Greeks laid the base for science in the pre-Christian era in one case, the Chinese were the first to take a vast lead in technology. If science is humanity's response to explain the forces of nature, technology is humanity's response to exploit them. Progress in either can be a source of progress in the other. Chinese innate strength to exploit the forces of nature would continue to give them an edge in innovating technology right to the present time.

That view is borne out by a federal government study.
Most people know it's important to use sunscreen, but they're sometimes confused about how to choose the right protection or how much to use, a small study suggests. Researchers surveyed people treated at a dermatology clinic last year and found almost all of them had bought sunscreen in 2013. Fewer than half, however, could correctly identify the terms on the labels that indicated how well the product protected against skin cancer and sunburns.
Almost everyone uses one daily, but most people don't know much about how smartphones really work. Instead there are lots of half-truths and falsehoods floating about concerning mobiles. Many stem from the early days of these devices. Here are some of the myths:
