Conflict can be defined as a struggle or clash between opposing force and is important to human life experience. There are a multitude of factors which can stimulus conflict between individuals, group, man and the environment or within one's self. There are many conflicts in the book "Sweetgum Slough" written by Claire Karssiens. The three conflicts that stood up to me are Louis vs. Schmeling, Karssiens vs. new school, and Karssiens brother vs. Panther.
The principal at Riverwood High School recently proposes that all school bus drivers shut off their bus engines while waiting for students to board buses in the school parking lot or whenever buses are parked for several minutes. As the bus drivers turn on the engine, whether while waiting for the students or delivering students from home to school and vice versa, several gasses are produced such as carbon dioxide (CO2) that are emitted from the vehicle into the atmosphere. As CO2 in the atmosphere increases, more heat is trap in the atmosphere which contribute to the climate change. In addition, carbon monoxide (CO) have contributed into polluting the atmosphere while the bus are idling. CO are a poisonous gas that are odorless and colorless. They
Even one parking garage just for college students would be very beneficial. Especially for Point Park students since they are competing for a parking space with people who work in the city, teachers, etc. There are a couple parking garages but they are fair game for anyone to use. Once they are filled up you are going to be looking for awhile which in turn will make you late for a class. The building on 500 Liberty Avenue is for sale for 1,600,000 (LoopNet). It is in walking distance from the school and could easily be demolished for a parking garage. It could be specifically for Point Park students and faculty and the only way to get in is to scan your ID. This would solve all the college kids problems of saying “There’s never any parking”, “I’m always late for my classes because I drive around for ten minutes looking for a spot.” or “I’m seriously broke from how much I feed the meters” (Kercher). They are already paying enough in tuition, room and board, and their meal plans that it could cover the cost to build a parking garage. It could be the size of an average parking garage so that it does not take up more room than needed. All Point Park needs is one parking garage, they just need to the idea out there and the rest will fall in place. This is the best idea out of the three ideas. The only con is pricing but hopefully the school will realize this is a
As humans, we each face conflict in our everyday lives. Conflict is basically anything that happens that a person may disagree with, or not be happy with. Conflict could be something as little as losing your pencil, or something as horrible as the holocaust. For example, Anne Frank was forced into hiding at the age of 13. There was nothing that she could do about it, so she kept her thoughts on the positive side by writing in her diary once or twice a month, and hoping for the best. She hoped and prayed that she and her family wouldn’t be found, and that the war would end soon; that’s what kept her going. Hoping for the better and having a positive outlook on her situation really helped her through that horrible time. In the story “Night,” Ellie is 13 years old when he gets taken away Auschwitz. His situation is horrible, but having a positive attitude towards that situation made his situation, at the time, not be as horrible as it could be. Even though he didn’t know what was going on, he looked on the positive side, and told himself that things would get better, and he wouldn’t be there forever. These are both good reasons that having a positive view on conflict will make your situation not as bad, especially in the time of war.
First of all, high school parking lots have the smallest parking spaces which makes it so easy for each student to part properly. They are able to maneuver any vehicles, especially large trucks, into these spaces easily. It’s even better if the spaces are drawn straight rather than slanted, it makes it easier to park, especially for high school students who are fairly new drivers. The fact that most high school drivers have mastered parking makes the grocery store parking spaces look easy. They are much more spacious and are drawn
Starting Tuesday January 17, 2017 – TODAY - all students must park in the upper student parking lot. This includes late arrival and early dismissal students. We are having to do this because students have taken over the front lot and our visitors do not have anywhere to park.
Maintain sidewalks, streets and right-of-ways in good condition, free of obstructions, and with adequate lighting, landscaping and parkways to accommodate pedestrians comfortably and provides for safety during the night. Encourage new developments to invest in improvements to specific sections of the pedestrian network as prioritized by the community.
College should add more space for parking lots. College need to make sure that if the parking is more available to anyone that would more space for anyone that can found. Many people who struggle to find park and be late in class and miss any new information.
The progressive era started with a change people who didn’t like how things were going. They felt the rich got richer and the poor got poorer, and they set out to change it. Roosevelt taking down big business. People having more time for themselves so more entertainment such as sports, and music. The smaller people standing together in union fighting for the rights. Changes in laws for businesses, labor, food health, environmental health. Conservation stepping in for the first time and playing a big role. Conservation during the progressive era was helpful but also was hurtful.
The city of Shawnee is deeply rooted in the history of Kansas, and even that of the United States of America. With the name that is connected to the Indian tribe known as the Shawnee, and how the area was connected to the frontier days of our history, the city of Shawnee is a living historical site. In this paper I will discuss the history and current state of Shawnee, the connection to the four traditional public administration values, and provide an overview on important policy changes from the last fifteen years. Shawnee is a vibrant and successful community that has excelled in the national spotlight for many years.
PATS uses different classifications to keep check on the type of permit to be issued. e.g. Faculty, Commuter (General), Residential, Reserved, Not Registered, Admin etc. General permit holders can park in reserve after 5pm (excluding handicap, admin, Gannett Hall loading dock etc.)
The last thing that college students wants to happen to them is arriving to class late and knowing that the reason why they were late is not their fault. Students at Kennesaw State University (KSU), who travel to and from the Kennesaw and Marietta campuses, have experienced the "last thing I want to happen to me" situation and are not pleased with long unexpected wait time for the Big Owl Bus, more commonly known as the B.O.B. shuttle, to arrive. These issues are the results of limited amount of shuttles traveling between both campuses. Since the limited amount of shuttles is the main cause of students arriving late to class, the Kennesaw State University Department of Parking and Transportation should
Designated parking should not be allowed for the professors because it is unfair to the students. More than half of the parking spaces that are closer to the academic buildings are reserved for the professors, but the number of students exceeds the faculty. One problem this creates is that students are forced to park in the streets, which is dangerous because of heavy traffic and narrow shoulders. Students may also cause an
Speed limits are vital to ensure people’s safety, both the driver’s and surrounding pedestrians.The most common cause of road accidents are because of speeding. The higher speed increases the chance of an accident. Enforcing speed limits may help prevent accident that occur on roads. Statistics show the Each year over 700 people are killed in crashes involving someone exceeding the speed limit. (RoSPA, 2012) According the WHO, For every 1km/h reduction in average speed, there is a 2% reduction in the number of crashes.
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.
