Why New York City and Hong Kong are that popular? Is it because their city planning is good? In city planning, “people” is one of the most important element. Housing and Public Space matter to people’s living most. How are the two cities planned and designed to cater to the citizens?

There are other and more unique reasons in Hawaii that cause a much higher growth rate of homeless people compared to the steady number in most states. These causes include, rising costs in daily goods, low wages, and limited land (Bussewitz). Also, it is not easy for a homeless person to move to another state since Hawaii is an island.

Immigrants were flowing in and “An additional 8.8 million more arrived during the peak years of immigration, 1901-1910” (Newman, Schmalbach 359). Immigrants had many reasons to move to this economically prospering country. First of all, they did not have jobs as good as this newly industrialized city offered, some faced religious persecution, like Jews in Russia. America, in comparison of their homeland, offered freedom, employment, and great settlement. New York City is a great example, by 1898, it became the commerce and finance center with a population of 3.4 million.
Electing well-qualified individuals like Josh will make our society empowered by leaders rather than politicians. Unfortunately, politicians like Mr. Mangano have their own interests in mind before the peoples but we can stop this. Economically, politicians are paid well and the corruption derives from the selfishness within and it is the citizen’s responsibility to elect the right official. In the future, I hope to have more government regulation of officials and frequent ethical evaluations of longtime officials.

Climate change is denied is due to the prioritization of business and the economy. Large corporations create their products with uncostly materials, in order to profit more, and those materials are more-often-than-not non-renewable resources or cause damage to the Earth. These corporations prefer to not be targeted with accusations of the unethical damage they are causing. Therefore, they create propaganda against climate change, they create doubt among their customers. It is considered a business tactic to create news surrounding issues, in order to distract the consumers from whatever controversial issue that is, or could be, affecting their sales.
In reality, clearly gentrification influences reliably the urban development. In any case, impacts of gentrification can be very disputable. From one viewpoint, gentrification stimulates the financial development of communities, where representatives of the middle class move to. Be that as it may, monetary advantages might be short-run, though, in a long-run point of view, gentrification can prompt the enlarging hole between the rich and the poor in urban areas. The latter issue will prompt the deterioration of the social dependability inside urban areas.
This community is able to do so because the residents are highly involved with each other and can identify themselves as part of the neighborhood. The interpersonal community promotes social connectedness therefore; opens the social interaction to other’s social class, resident’s identity and the community linkage various in the neighborhood. Members of solidarity communities reinforce their connectedness through shared rituals, holidays, festivals and evocations of a common history (Kirst-Ashman, 2014).
