Overcrowding has been an issue for decades; however, due to growing population sizes, its negative social consequences are progressively worsening. Overcrowding is most commonly seen in cities and other urban developments. Cities attract people for many different reasons. As Steven E. Barkan, a professor in Sociology at the University of Maine, explains, cities provide it all: entertainment, cultural attractions, and employment opportunities (Barkan, 2012). Similarly, living in a city allows for easy access to public transportation, businesses, and other necessities.
Transportation to one place would be easier due to the fact that there are now many ways to get to one specific location. Aside from the positive effects of Moses’s work, there are also a vast amount of negative effects. One negative effect is, many people were evicted from their homes due to his construction. “His Cross Bronx Expressway all but destroyed the life of the borough. It is estimated that during his career Moses caused a quarter of a million people to be evicted from their homes to make way for his highways” (Kunstler, 100).
First, as the country’s economy started to shift from the manufacturing industry to other service-based business, it created an opening for stiff external competition (Millington 283). The Japanese vehicles appeared in the US market. They attracted many consumers because of their uniqueness and affordability (Padnani par.4). With the increased importation of Japanese auto, the well-paying jobs in the car making and assembling processes diminished as the companies that supplied materials of steel and those that made vehicles in Detroit shut down their operations. People who experienced the city’s decline from the 1950s up to 1980s fled to other townships (Padnani par.1).
These have a great effect on people’s work as there are many cars in the big cities so it makes it difficult to reach work at time. Actually the traffic jam wastes precious time of people just sitting in the car waiting for time to pass and for the cars to even move. Traffic jam makes it even difficult for people to walk and for some people who have sidewalk-to-sidewalk travel. Too many cars in a big city just makes it difficult for people to walk on a pavement and just get annoyed by the sound of the cars which is also noise pollution. Another important issue that even students get late to their school and everything will not be in time.
Although Los Angeles Chinatown was a popular first-stop in the states, it did not remain economically viable for low-income immigrants to continue living there because of increasing rent and real estate. In particular, gentrification has an effect on new Chinese residents who settle in Chinatown that tend to be “poorer, less educated, less acculturated” (Lin 2008). Along with the influx of low-income residents in search of their American dream, there was a portion of wealthy entrepreneurs and investors who rightfully saw potential in Chinatowns within the United States (Liu and Lin 2009). Although Oakland was able to deflect and divert investment over to San Francisco, Los Angeles became the prime area for investment because of its popularity at the time. As a result, many low-income immigrant families that were originally situated in Los Angeles Chinatown eventually moved into the San Gabriel Valley (Liu and Lin 2009).
Issues: 1. What are the three most critical challenges facing your business today? Dunkin Donuts is facing more challenges in the business due to change in the taste and preference of the customers. There are more shifts in the consumer taste and preference towards health-conscious food that is affecting the entire existing business. Next, there is a decrease in the number of customers visiting the store exclusively for donut as there are more companies in the market to provide coffee and other beverages and other foods and donuts that are pulling the crowd.
Urban sprawl has a negative effect due to the hardship of getting around with a car, very limited open space and natural habitat, and pollution. One of the issues urban sprawl has is how people get around. To go to daily places like schools or grocery shops, it is most likely that a car is needed to go from place to place. As mentioned in the documentary Radiant City, they talk about and explain the effects of having many cars and vehicles in communities. More household and individuals living in one community owning one or more cars has a few consequences.
An example of this is when Walter used the insurance money to make an unauthorized transaction for a liquor license. In life today troubles of the same nature would be cyber crimes and stolen identities, these crimes affect our world and everyday living. Finally, poverty is affecting thousands of people in the United States; this impact is changing the quality of life for families as noted in the play A Raisin in the Sun. The lack of money for families hinders society to grow in jobs, education, health care and in having the ability to draw other companies to invest in our
Urbanization has a negative effect on CVD health. It causes unequal distribution of goods with some areas having substandard housing condition and low health care services, health foods and safe green places for outdoor activity that are free of toxins and pollutants. Crowded city living environments can spread diseases such as rheumatic fever which if untreated may lead to rheumatic heart disease. Also city life promotes sedentary habits because it promotes transport by car rather than by foot or bikes which discourage daily physical activity. City dwellers are more likely to be exposed to marketing schemes and advertisement for unhealthy food, tobacco and alcohol.
departments (e.g. digging of roads by telecom/ dihydrogen monoxide dept. and leaving it open for eons) Traffic congestion has a number of negative effects: • Wasting time of motorists and passengers ("opportunity cost"). As a non-productive activity for most people, congestion reduces regional economic health. • Delays, which may result in tardy advent for employment, meetings, and edification, resulting in lost business, disciplinary action or other personal losses.
People stopped using their cars for leisure and this greatly affected the tourism in California. Southern California automobile tourism saw a huge hit. “Blame seekers targeted advertisers for over stimulating consumer desires,” (J. Otts page 59) for the reason why the stock market crashed. They blamed the advertisements for being so good, that consumers couldn’t resist, which caused them to buy more than they could afford. Quickly people started to notice “a trickle of migrants,” (J. Otts page 60) and they weren’t coming to California for tourism, but instead in look of work.
