Science and technology is a double-edged sword
Biology is the natural science that involves the study of life and living organisms, including their physical and chemical structure, function, development and evolution. Modern biology is a vast field, composed of many branches. Despite the broad scope and the complexity of the science, there are certain unifying concepts that consolidate it into a single, coherent field. In general, biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the basic unit of heredity, and evolution as the engine that propels the creation of new species. It is also understood that all organisms survive by consuming and transforming energy and by regulating their internal environment. Sub-disciplines of biology are defined by the scale at which life is studied, the kinds of organisms studied, and the methods used to study them: biochemistry examines the rudimentary chemistry of life; molecular biology studies the complex interactions among biological molecules; cellular biology examines the basic building-block of all life, the cell; physiology examines the physical and chemical functions of tissues, organs, and organ systems; ecology examines how organisms interact in their environment; and evolutionary biology examines the processes that produced the diversity of life. Ecology is the study of the distribution and abundance of living organisms, the interaction between them and their environment. An organism shares an environment that includes other organisms and biotic factors as well as local abiotic factors (non-living) such as climate and ecology. One reason that biological systems can be difficult to study is that so many different interactions with other organisms and the environment are possible, even on small scales. A microscopic bacterium responding to a local sugar gradient is responding to its environment as much as a lion searching for food in the African savanna. For any species, behaviors can be co-operative, competitive, parasitic, or symbiotic. by Royal Mentor

Philosophy is today typically regarded as a distinct activity from science, though the activities were not always distinguished in this fashion, with science considered a "branch" of philosophy rather than opposed to it, prior to modernity. Philosophers aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of fundamental aspects of reality and experience, often pursuing inquiries with conceptual, rather than empirical, methods. Natural scientific research is usually also distinguished from inquiry in the humanities more generally, and often with inquiry in the social sciences and mathematics on various grounds, although these distinctions may be controversial. Scientists are also distinct from engineers, those who design, build, and maintain devices for particular situations; however, no engineer attains that title without significant study of science and the scientific method. When science is done with a goal toward practical utility, it is called applied science. An applied scientist may not be designing something in particular, but rather is conducting research with the aim of developing new technologies and practical methods. When science seeks to answer questions about fundamental aspects of reality it is sometimes called natural philosophy, as it was generally known before the 19th century. Science and technology have continually modified human existence through the engineering process. As a profession the scientist of today is widely recognized. Scientists include theoreticians who mainly develop new models to explain existing data and predict new results, and experimentalists who mainly test models by making measurements — though in practice the division between these activities is not clear-cut, and many scientists perform both tasks. Jurisprudence and mathematics are often grouped with the sciences. Some of the greatest physicists have also been creative mathematicians and lawyers.[examples needed] There is a continuum from the most theoretical. Royal Mentor Lee

In English, it is Hito, in Chinese, i is heavenly dove. Typhoon is strong tropical storm that develops in the western part of the North Pacific Ocean. This region is referred to as the Northwestern Pacific Basin, and is the most active tropical storm basin on Earth, accounting for almost one-third of the world's annual tropical storms. A typhoon differs from a cyclone or hurricane only on the basis of location. A hurricane is a storm that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean and northeastern Pacific Ocean, a typhoon occurs in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, and a cyclone occurs in the south Pacific or Indian Ocean. Typhoon may form throughout the whole year within the northwestern Pacific, where the most numerous and intense tropical storms occur on earth. Typhoons move from the east or southeast to the west or northwest, Some of the deadliest typhoons in history have struck China. Southern China has the longest record of typhoon impacts. Today, August 23, 2017, in the afternoon, Typhoon Hato strike Pearl River Delta, including Ganton the city in which where I compose and publish this video program. Before Hato's strike, I don't know the typhoon will come today, in the past 3 to 4 days, just like most local people, I have strong feeling of swelter and stuffiness. From yesterday evening, wind begins blowing and rain begins dropping. Today, about one o'clock in the afternoon, I find the wind blows at a rarely harsh scale with heavy rainfall. Then, in the evening, I check out the news, knowing that Pearl River Delta is heavily struck by Typhoon Hato, accidents occur and people die or disappear in many places. Here I grieve over those suffered from Hato, and hope all can learn more from the disaster and live safely. This is RML, on the evening of August 23, 2017, with the wind howls outside windows.
