Throughout the 20th and 21st century, there has been a debate in the United States about whether there should be a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. At this time, there is a border wall between the states of; Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona and Northern Mexico. The main purpose behind having a border fence is to stop illegal immigrants, criminals, and terrorist from coming into the United States.

Although there are many causes of the Dust Bowl the three most significant causes were the drought, removal of grass and the overproduction of crops in the Great Plains. The drought greatly dried out the land in the Great Plains. Removal of grass was also crucial during World War I because of the demand for wheat, but it was not during the Dust Bowl. By removing the grass it created much more room for storms to pick up the dirt and destroy
If bike lanes are expanded down W. Alameda Road, there are two grocery stores and numerous businesses. This adds to the human-scale of the neighborhood, taking exiting residential and business areas and bridging them. Many of the principals of new urbanism can be applied to the neighborhood with this simple addition. The lack of vegetation is a tremendous opportunity for these businesses to connect with the residential areas of the neighborhood. Fred Meyer, for example, could offer a discounted price to residents on trees, bushes and shrubs.
Many facts encourage people to locate in the suburban areas: 1- The well-developed transportation system: As an example of the transportation system development ‘’ highway’’. Highways increase the accessibility of regions and land as the result lands price increase. Some studies were done to prove that land increase in region that was previously less accessible but the land price decrease in region that was already accessible.
His model is the reverse of the Von Thunen's model as he opposes some of his theories or assumptions. He suggested a ring which contains a vacant land around the city surrounded by areas that have an increasing rent and intensity with the distance from the market. He argued that in modern cities the uncertainty and speculations involved in the urban fringe developments are the major contributors in the rent gradient of agricultural land, which results in rent decreasing with distance from the market. In Sinclair's model when a farm is taken away from the urban development pressures there is a higher agricultural rent which yields capacity and intensity of production. In his theory the land uses that are more intensive are normally found on high-rent close to the city, in order to minimize the costs of transporting bulky perishable goods to the market.
But agents of “urban gentrification are not the strictly economic creatures” (Lampe), they are thought to be. While most, perceiving themselves to be transient, may opt for cash-rent housing, many have a long-term commitment to city living. An abundance of large, older homes sited on small lots along wide residential streets characterizes the near-downtown neighborhoods of most older U.S. cities. Possibly vacant but typically not abandoned, much of this housing is in serious disrepair, requiring the replacement of major systems, including plumbing, wiring and heating. When properly renovated and rehabilitated, such homes offer a variety of advantages like abundant space at a low cost per square foot, elegant architectural appointments, and proximity to downtown employment opportunities and arts and entertainment amenities.
3.1 How income inequality affect on people live in America. The income gap in America affects people, who live in this country. The issue has a strong impact in America’s society; in particular, the nutritional disparity between rich and poor people. In USA, the food gap becomes the top signal for the class distinction, but it used to be clothing or fashion. The food inequality in America is not only influencing the poverty, it is also cost hundreds of billions of dollar per year because of Non Communicable Diseases (NDCs) (Ferdman, 2014).
Although China’s land is not as big as Russia or Canada, but their number of people make up more than two countries. Overpopulation in China is one of the serious problems that the world is facing because it brings unemployment, exhaustion of natural resources and also environmental at pollution.

The differences of rural and urban areas are their facilities, education, living costs, but the similarities between village and city are in their language, religion, laws, and government. One obvious difference is the facilities. City life has more facilities and opportunities to progress life. People in urban areas are integrated with technology that makes their lives much easier.

Everyone, unless you happen to have the money or influence to redefine a piece of a system you don 't like. Gentrification is therefore widely viewed as sociological trend that reverses the phenomenon of white flight that was experienced when urban places were abandoned for relatively attractive rural housing to culturally fertile ground in the city set up. This is advanced by the professionals who work on white collar employment opportunities who prefer to live near their job. Increased tax revenues associated with gentrification increased property value is a positive economic boost especially occurring in cities making residential properties more attractive to professional and average income group of people displacing low income residents. According to Benjamin Schwarz research “Gentrification and Its Discontents”, “Both authors are consciously, unavoidably “in dialogue” with Jacobs, as Sorkin puts it, so it’s probably not surprising that the two broadly agree on what ails New York and how it should be remedied.

Gentrification has become known as a movement of high income middle-class gentrifying low-income neighborhoods according to Merriam-Webster dictionary. The explanation drives many researchers to assess its effects rather rely on only looking at the process, which is equally important to understanding the trend of urban migration. Most of these perspectives outline a range of dilemmas that account to gentrification that often intertwined with impacts and the values of social responsibility that often spur many contrasting viewpoints. These viewpoints agree or disagree with the impacts of gentrification, argue about equality, economic growth, and development; analyze prescriptions for what policy decisions concerning the negative effects need
