The concept of Advance refers to act and the result of moving forward : move forward; anticipate, increase or improve something. In some countries , advance is also used as a synonym for advanced (budget or accounting balance).
For example: "The advance of the vehicles is delayed by an accident that occurred at the entrance to the bridge", “The inauguration of this water treatment plant Water it is a great advance for the region ”, "The authorities are very concerned about the progress of drug trafficking".
An advance may be the forward movement . If a man who was standing at the beginning of a path begins to walk, will begin to move forward (that is, to make an advance in his journey).
It is important to keep in mind that the direction in which a body moves is always relative to certain factors, such as the orientation of its front side. In the case of human beings, we understand that progress is made when our body is directed towards a point from which we can see our knees, our abdomen and our face, for example, three elements that are in the side front of our structure.
In the case of a living being or an object unknown to us it is not easy to determine its different sides and for this reason it may happen that we do not know how to precisely define its movements . Of course, it is not always necessary to provide this information, but sometimes it is enough to indicate the direction in which a body moves, as well as speed and acceleration, among other issues.
A increase , whether symbolic or physical, I could also mention it as an advance: “If it continues to rain, we will not be able to stop the river's advance”, "The country's economy improved thanks to the advance of international trade", "Mr. President, how do you plan to combat the advance of insecurity?".
The idea of advance, on the other hand, appears linked to a improvement or one optimization , many times achieved thanks to technological development: "I am surprised by the progress of nanotechnology", "Automation is an advance in our production process".
The technology It has gone from being something that interested a few connoisseurs to becoming part of the daily lives of most people. This does not mean that everyone understands the different processes and principles behind their favorite products; on the contrary, the market needs not to focus on the backstage, and for that it confuses them with fictitious technical terms created with a commercial approach.
Technological advances are one of the requirements that consumers impose on companies year after year as a condition to buy their new products. As it is not always possible to make considerable leaps with respect to previous technology, this absurd level of demand results in manufacturers cheating the public through tactics such as the aforementioned creation of striking terms that cause the impression of being faced with revolution .
At ambit of the cinematography , we usually talk about progress to name the fragment of a film that is disseminated, by way of promotion or advertising, before the premiere: “Last night I saw the advances of the new Rocky Balboa movie”, "In the advance you can see the new superhero costume".
The advances of the films do not always reflect the true content that the public will find in movie theaters, and this can happen in any way: both for better and for worse. As if this were not enough, it is very common to show scenes in which unknowns or mysteries of the story are solved, which ruin the experience of those who have not yet seen the movie.
