Providing public services Grade: B- When It came to providing public services the Roman Republic earned a B-. The reason it earned a B- was because of the aqueducts, roads, and gladiators fights. The aqueducts was a plus on the Roman side, it brought water from mountain springs to the fountains and baths in close by cites. One aqueduct was 50 miles long from the source in the mountains, to the city of Carthage. At the same time, this was not good
The legend says that Pachacuti's reason to start building up Machu Picchu is to celebrate when they won the was against the Chancas, which were well known as a group hard to defeat. The empire didn't take a very long time to grow, it took the Incas less than 100 years to be from a small village in south Peru to a big city. The development of the city remain a mystery to the world. The Inca used to call their city "the land of the four Quarters , they believed Cusco was the center of the universes geographically. They improved the traditions and technology of the human culture, and developed what they have learned from other earlier culture.
The second feature of Romans is architecture. The Romans building were design in a prodigious structure and technique to keep it last forever. In order to build such an enormous construction and elegant temples; Romans used many diverse type of materials such as marble, concrete, limestone, and fine stone during the classic era. They were the great innovator that quickly adopted new construction techniques, used new materials, and uniquely combined existing techniques with creative design to produce a whole range of new
The Romans were not the first to build roads; the Greeks, Persians, and Etruscans had begun building roads long before the Romans. However, none of the roads built before the Romans were engineered to such a degree of skill that the Romans had employed when they began building roads, which took place as early as the fourth century BC and continued until well into the fourth century AD. Furthermore, no other nation at the time had a true system of roads that was available for everyone to use; the use of roads was typically restricted to certain individuals. Breaking this president paved the way for the Roman road system to make history through its various impacts, notably in how it provided solid unification and largely extended the life expectancy
Ancient Rome was a great empire. Of course all great empires, in order to stay in power, must provide for the common good of the people. In order to do this, Rome needed to provide Public Service, protect the people’s rights, promote rule of law, prepare a common defence, and support the economic system. The Romans did very well when it came to providing Public Service. The Romans created Aqueducts; commonly known as a plumbing system so that the people could have running water, indoor plumbing, public water fountains, baths, and a sewer system.
GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE A Specification of the Bridge: In 1994, the Golden Gate Bridge was declared one of the 7 wonders of the modern world, today it is still one of the most famous structures in the world. Construction began in 1933 some people worried it would cost too much, other people worried it wouldn’t be safe but by hiring clever engineers and designers with the use of advanced technology nothing is impossible, according to Kevin Starr (2010) "The Golden Gate Bridge ... offers enduring proof that human beings can alter the planet with reverence" . In 1937, it was completed it only took four years to build it and it became the longest bridge and the tallest bridge in the world. The figure shows a general view of Golden Gate Bridge at night.

The Romans were well-known for their engineering skills, having constructed engineering marvels standing till date. Their engineering skills were revolutionary and despite their achievements, the Romans have been accused of failing aesthetically. I believe to term Roman architecture as failure aesthetically is extreme, because of the aqueducts, the amphitheatre and the Roman temples were exemplary examples to justify their case. The Romans started building aqueducts because it was a necessity used to carry water supply from sources into the cities. According to Anderson (2012), the primary purpose of the aqueducts was to transport water from valleys into town, but they were still a “civic pride in the Roman world” and not neglected aesthetically.
When they did this they tried to meet everything to the common good of the citizens. Read on to find out how they did this. The Roman Republic deserves an A+ for their Public services. First, the Romans built huge sets of Aqueducts (and pipes) to bring water from clean/fresh water sources in the mountains (usually springs) to
The Roman Republic was one of the most respected and powerful civilization of the ancient world. When it came to the purposes of government the Romans did very well. When it came to providing public services, the Romans provided their citizens with many resources that helped them live their daily lives, and they did this while spending little to no money. One example of these resources is the aqueduct. Aqueducts were built to supply fresh water.
Viewing themselves as heirs to Ancient Rome, the Florentines spearheaded the Humanist movement, believing that they were the ideal city state to inherit Rome’s prestige. They not only wanted to be like Rome, they wanted to become Rome, a centre for the arts as well as politics. This interest in the Greco-Roman style of art is what led to the advancement in sculptural technique. Additionally, there was a surge in patriotism due to the end of the plague and a break in the war against Milan. In celebration, the Florentines decided to beautify the city, to display their growing power.
This city is known for its impressive walls and buildings. Another reason is because of a man named Hammurabi, he was the king. He created one of the earliest written set of laws, called the Code of Hammurabi. In these laws covered almost everything that affected his community. Hammurabi created these laws because he wanted his empire to be unified and to provide protection for the weak (Document
The legislation recently provided an additional 14 billion dollars for the rebuilding of the levee systems adding the flood walls. Even though, the government has provided the money to rebuild the levees, it’s only to be built to a category 3 hurricane not to a category 5. Which many people think it will make the city safer. The levees will be build as strong as the last levees which did not hold will. The foundation will be stronger and able to hold water in the mud.
To begin this composition, both these structures took great dedication to make in both time, energy and resources. The Moai on Easter Island were great statues and due to their weight and height and complexity it is hard to believe that these statues were made in a week or two and it is even harder to believe that these structures were made with basic tools. It would also take a great deal of time to build one, however not only one or two were made but 877 Moai statues were made and each varying in size and weight. The second structure which is the
The Romans enjoyed many useful features for their day, including public toilets, underground sewage systems, fountains and ornate public baths. None of these aquatic innovations that we use today would have been possible without the Romans. Concrete ￼ Many ancient Roman structures are still standing today, thanks to the development of Roman cement and concrete. Still today we used concrete to build a lot of things including houses and sidewalks. Newspapers ￼ The Romans were known to contribute to public discourse through the use of official texts detailing military, legal and civil issues.
