1. Perception categories that significantly influenced walking frequency were landuse, and aesthetics and amenities. The safety, directness and continuity perception categories were not significant but had weak to moderate associations with land use and aesthetics perception. This implies improving perception of one category is bound to improve or negatively impact the perception of a correlated category. For example landuse perception was correlated with directness perception - which is intuitive, given that directness measured quick and easy access to land uses. Conversely, directness was moderately correlated with safety, which is intuitive given that enclosed communities have lower traffic flows as well as speed limits that are conducive …show more content…
Safety perception was influenced by directness features, safety related infrastructure and social-demographic variables such as gender and transit use. To improve safety perception, safety related infrastructure as well as directness features that limit safety hazards can be implemented. In addition safety perception was significantly correlated with directness, continuity and aesthetics perceptions.
3. A higher land use mix was determined to improve landuse perception. In addition, features that enable quick and easy access to the variety of land uses was is likely to improve not only directness but land use perception as well. This would imply flatter sidewalk gradient, smaller parking lots in front of commercial premises and better access at and in enclosed communities.
4. Aesthetics and amenities perception was influenced by walking environment infrastructure including directness, continuity, as well as appealing environment. A complete, and well maintained facility is not only visually appealing but is likely to quicker access between origin and destinations for utilitarian trips. In addition completeness of the walking environment is synonymous with safety, such that pedestrian don 't have to maneuver around obstructions putting them at

The objective of the lab was to program a vehicle board so that an LED would flash at .5 Hertz. This was done by using the Arduino software tool, the Redbot library, and using theses to write a program that would satisfy the requirements. . The following code used consisted of the two functions void setup and void loop.
Bernadine Conklin Ms. Gross/Mrs. Abrams Quantitative project Section 3 20 October 2015 EAN-13 Check digits and codes are very important to the function and efficiency of a successful society. Whether it be the credit card codes or even looking at barcodes so an item is victoriously scanned. An important one that is used is the EAN Which stand for The European Article Numbering Code or even EAN-13 which is used for the identification of retail products. This contains both the 12 digit data of the product and the 1 check digit naming it a barcode of a numerical value of 13 .This was originally based off the old code of UPC-A (Universal Product Code), it then became the new standard of numbering codes.

1. List and explain the top 5 factors that are required, at a bare minimum, to make an application secure. Security architecture, authentication, session management, access control, and input validation are the top five factors that make an application secure. Security architecture: OWASP verification requirements in security architecture verify all the application components and libraries that are present in the application are identified. A high level architecture of an application must be designed.
1)Campaign Campaign is when a person who holds political offices goes to different place giving their ideas and opinions about subjects hoping to gain the favor of the people. 2)Poll Poll is something that is used to determine how much support a person in political office has. Or how much support a person in a political office has lost. 3)Reapportionment Reapportionment is when a political office person has been reappointed to their current office holding.
Before industrialization, people would make time for walking, just as they would make time to eat and drink. Through the decades the activity of walking has transformed due to the suburbanization of society. Many people have changed the way they view walking; this is a result of being exposed to suburbs, technology, and automobiles. In Rebecca Solnit’s essay, “Walking and the Suburbanized Psyche” she argues that the cultural activity of walking is fading due to suburbanization. The suburbanized psyche changes the way people think; most people want to get to their destination as soon as possible instead of walking and enjoying the wonders of nature.
Introduction As the world’s population continues to migrate and live in urban areas, planners, engineers, and politicians have an important role to ensure that they are livable and sustainable. But what defines an urban area and what makes it so attractive? In my opinion, urban areas are places that consist of a variety of land uses and buildings, where services and amenities are easily accessible to the general public, and includes an established multimodal transportation network. Also, it should be a place where people can play, learn, work, and grow in a safe and collaborative manner.
“Biophilic design is the deliberate attempt to translate an understanding of biophilia into the design of the built environment” (Kellert, 2008). It involves building and landscape design that enhance human well-being by fostering positive connections between people and natural environment. It is an innovative design approach that aims to maintain, enhance and restore the benefits of experiencing nature in the built environment. It starts by observing the effect of the mutual interaction between the natural and the built environment. The learned knowledge is then reflected onto the design and construction of the built environment.
How pedestrians should walk Most people have different habits when it comes to walking, some walk from the middle of the road, while others wait for the green light to turn on whether it means to miss the bus or train. Pedestrians are told to be careful when crossing the road/zebra crossing, however, most pedestrians don’t listen to these rules and cross when there are no cars around, while this may be okay there are rules to prevent people from doing so. Pedestrians mostly cross the road whenever to get the bus or train which may be coming within 2 mins. This can cause big accidents to happen. From the beginning of this year until September 26 there have been 46 deaths related to pedestrians.
Enhance infrastructure to support walking, which can be measured by measuring total miles of paved sidewalks relative to the total street miles. Infrastructure that supports walking includes sidewalks, footpaths, walking trails, and pedestrian crossings. Walking is a regular, moderate-intensity physical activity in which relatively large numbers of persons can engage. Well-developed infrastructure supporting walking is an important element of the built environment and has been demonstrated to be associated with physical activity in adults and children.
INTRODUCTION/HISTORY 33561, that is the number of road related fatalities that have occurred in the United States in the year 2012 alone. This number pales in comparison to that of China’s, its numbers coming in at a chilling 275983 fatalities. The worldwide trend of road fatalities is growing at an extremely rapid rate, this places pressure on companies and governments to come up with a solution to slow down the rate of fatalities and potentially even one day end all road fatalities. Ask any person and they would most likely tell you the reason behind such high numbers of road accidents is simply: bad drivers. These people are not wrong, humans are not perfect creatures, putting us in a fast moving object is bound to cause problems sooner or later.
(2012) used a similar approach to map human behaviour and activities during nighttime in an urban park. In this study, we used structured observation to capture not only the variety of human activities but also to assess the animal species richness, soundscape (types of sound) and smells. Field measurements were used to measure the features and landscape elements in the parks, vegetation diversity and structure, as well as sound levels. The methods of structured observation and field measurements have been used in an integrative framework to study the socio-ecological characteristics of small urban
Bike Paths in Miami Are Unsafe Miami lately is a city that has been very interested in being part of the leading cities in caring for the environment and intelligently contributing to its progress. That is why lately we have been listening to proposals such as the construction of bike paths to lower the level of consumption of public transportation and thus eliminate the pollution generated by the gases from vehicles to the environment and at the same time increase the level of awareness in people to have an exercise routine and improve health by lowering the percentages of obesity in the country. However, while Miami may have good initiative in coming up with ideas to improve people 's well-being and the environment, it is difficult to
