In Laurence Shames’s article, “The More Factor” he speaks to Americans about the hunger and greed associated with the history of the United States. He brings attention to the 1880s, where many speculators would buy empty land and quickly develop it into a small town. Sidewalks, hotels, flagpoles, and churches were constructed and left behind by the workers when they moved on. Afterwards, the speculators would hire others to hand out flyers promoting these new towns. Through the use of flowery titles, persuasion, or even bribery, speculators convinced people to live in their new town, at least until a census was taken. In doing so, speculators hoped to attract a railroad that would turn the small community into a real town. Many of these establishments
The Roaring Twenties were full of dramatic, social, political, and economic changes ("The Roaring Twenties,1). Post World War I, the era marked the beginning of modern times with new and worthy developments. More and more people were abetted to live in the cities, most people had jobs, therefore money to spend, and they spend it by “having a good time” (McNeese,88). While the society got rid of their miseries; sciences, arts, and businesses renewed themselves by evolving. This research paper briefly gives examples from advances in technology, transportation, and entertainment while discussing their benefits to the United States.
Throughout the course of history, Robert Moses, a renowned city planner, impacted America through his innovative ideas regarding transportation and infrastructures. In comparison to other engineers Moses possessed some unorthodox methods and styles. Between the 20s until the 60s, Moses’s work made various positive and negative effects on society. Some positive effects include: creating jobs and connecting different cities and areas. Regardless of Moses’s positive effects, some negative effects include: the loss of people’s homes through eviction and Moses’s refusal to build mass transit systems. The Geography of Nowhere, written by James Kunstler, discusses Moses and how his work impacted society forever.

It still exists today as a booming touristic city. In the colonial times, the name Charles Town had to be earned. Settlers and explorers had to adjust to and conquer the unknown terrain, make use of the unknown and the ferocious and survive the what seemed like an incurable disease.

The colony of Virginia wasn’t always efficient in the growth and trade of tobacco. To understand the role tobacco played in the development of the economy and society of the once destitute colony, we first must look back at how Virginia was established. Although not considered to be a part of the founding of Virginia, before 1607 there were two attempts made by English settlers to establish a colony in the Chesapeake region of North America. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth first of her name, a charter was granted to English settlers that would allow for colonies to be established
The Formation of a Society on Virginia’s Eastern Shore closely examines the development of an early settlement after the demise of the Virginia Company in the seventeenth century. James R. Perry does not research the Eastern Shore of Virginia in a conventional way. The goal of the author was to show how the society in Virginia developed through analyzing the relationships created in a networking pattern. Through analyzing court documents and landholdings of individuals in the Eastern Shore, the reader gains a sense of how these individuals helped shape the community by the exchange of resources they owned. James R. Perry expands on other significant studies done on early society in Virginia. Perry notes other historians such as Robert Beverley, Susie M. Ames, and Ralph T. Whitelaw who have contributed to the study of Virginia and its Eastern Shore. These historians have also had limited resources and have come up with innovative ways to gain some knowledge about the area. The Formation of a Society on Virginia’s
We have reached a world were speed is needed a requirement. We need speed in internet, studying, medicine and even production. Speed is the requirement for success. So why not speed in cars too? In my opinion, Speed limits should be definitely raised. Accidents do not happen just because of speeding in fact they happen because of people that are reckless, irresponsible and immature. They are thoughtless in controlling their speed.
Traffic congestion is a condition on convey networks that occurs as use increases, and is characterized by more gradual speeds, longer trip times, and incremented vehicular queueing. The most mundane example is the physical utilization of roads by conveyances. When traffic demand is great enough that the interaction between conveyances slows the haste of the traffic stream, this results in some congestion. As demand approaches the capacity of a road (or of the intersections along the road), extreme traffic congestion sets in. When conveyances are plenarily ceased for periods of time, this is colloquially kenned as a traffic jam or traffic snarl-up. Traffic congestion can lead to drivers becoming frustrated and engaging in road rage.
