What does power mean to you? How do you define power?
To me, power is an authority given to a person, and that authority can help the person desirably shape the society. Power is the force to make people do things that a person wants them to do. It can be used in both positive and negative ways. The effects of power do not last forever, and it is a flexible force.
How do you get power? Who can have power?
There are six different ways through which power can be gained, and these six ways include Physical force, Wealth, State Action, Social Norms, Ideas and numbers also known as people. People with authority can have power but in people too can have power as a citizen.
What's the importance of knowledge? Is knowing things important anymore now that we have the phone and internet at our fingertips? Why or why not?
Knowledge is still essential even in this advanced age when we can find everything at our fingertips. Humans can lose the data if they lose the tool to access that data however the knowledge stored in our mind stays forever. For instance, if a person goes to the woods and loses the compass then without the knowledge of direction that person would not be able to find the course. On the other hand, a person with the understanding of direction will find his way back. So knowledge based on tools is as practical as the tools.
Scenario: If a fire starts in your oven what is the first thing that comes to your mind in how to put it out? In other words, imagine the scene and legitimately how you would react in putting it out. NOTE: There is no fire extinguisher. What do you do?
In case the fire breaks out and there is no extinguisher then I would try to use water if the oven is not based on electricity. In the case of electricity I will go out and bring sand to extinguish the fire.

Watson, Jeopardy and me, the obsolete know-it-all
Watson is a computer that can do things that a human can but in the way it can be called replacement of humans. Jeopardy depends upon the personal knowledge of a person the more a person has the better will that person performs.
