The given illustration introduces the schematic diagram of an energy-efficient house and how it works in various climates.
Overall, it is obvious that the main purposes of technology are preventing house air from overheating in the warm climate, and resisting cold temperature in the cold weather.
First of all, it can be seen that the roof is covered by reflective materials which reflects skylight during warm weather, likewise the roof housetop and walls of the house include the layer of insulation that does not allow the heat to pass through it. Moreover, the ground of the house has two principle features of heat resisting designs, thus in the warm water underground floor protects the house from the heat of the sun, in the cold weather it works as underground floor heat retention.
For the cold weather the house has triple-glazed, which significantly enhances the skylight and contributes to an increase of an inside temperature. In addition, the heat goes through the ground and maintains the required temperature in the cold weather.

Teachers spend more active hours with their students, doing learning assignments and physical activities
The vast majority of young parents endeavor to be successful on their jobs, thus they are not able to spend enough time with offspring
Nowadays, it is commonly believed that after the commencement of school years, children are becoming more influenced by their teachers rather than parents in terms of intellectual and social aspects. I tend to agree with this statement, since during school years most of the parents are less engaged in their children’s lives.
First of all, teachers spend more active hours with their students, doing study assignments and physical activities. In other words, most of the modern schools have intense curriculum and the average amount is 7 or even 8 lessons per day. Thus, children spend the whole day in the school with their teachers, who in turn have professional background in communicating with children. Furthemore, the range of responsibilities of pedagogues include not only teaching pupils, but also to look after them, solve their conflicts and socialize them. Therefore, teachers constitute the prime providers of basic social knowledge and proper behaviour in society.
Secondly, the vast majority of young parents don’t have enough time to nurture their children properly. They are in the beginning of the career ladder and adults tend to do the best on their jobs. Therefore, even if they try to spend more time with children and live a fulfilling life, attending various entertainment events in order to pamper children, their mind is not stopping to think about professional problems.
To sum up, although parents are the most important people for their offspring, teachers tend to influence pupils from both social and study sides more effectively, because it is their job.
