Most people don’t live at their jobs, and only a lucky few can walk there. For the rest of the world’s employed or enterprising population, a bit of help is required to get to one’s workplace. Public transportation is a great option if you live in the metro, but if you’re commuting from outside the city, you’re probably driving yourself to work. Well, the reality is that we are all still extremely dependent on fossil fuels to run our transport vehicles, and almost everything about fossil fuels is bad—from the grave environmental and ethical impact of the way these fuels are produced and consumed, the effects their byproducts have on our health, down to the fact that it is a non-renewable, unsustainable resource.
In the article “Understanding Youth and Childhood” the author Virginia Morrow said “childhood is socially constructed in that childhood has different meanings and children have different roles and undertake different activities in different historical periods and in different cultures (Morrow,4)”. This quote shows how children back in the days were socially constructed based on culture and what the beliefs of their families were as well. But not only that it was also based on their economic status there was children from the past that had childhoods where they had to work to help sustain their family they weren’t really looked at as children instead as young adults who had to help with maintaining the household and family.

The Virginia Department of Transportation has not effectively dealt with the roads in Chesterfield county in regards to increasing population. Since more roads have not been built, it is a burden to the residents of Chesterfield county.
Bus companies are likely to earn supernormal profits due to majority of the bus routes in the UK being serviced by just one company. Therefore firms wanting to get in the market are unable to due to high barriers to entry and exit, high sunk costs and imperfect knowledge. This makes the market highly uncompetitive as the bus market is able to protect itself in the long run and gain market share. However supernormal profits depend on demand and the revenue earned by the bus market. The extract states that the bus fares don’t cover operating costs, this suggests that demand is low or the fare price has been significantly reduced due to student discounts or due to old persons bus passes which erode into the revenue, and this means that bus companies are unlikely to earn supernormal
Even though this was written many years ago, it still has a large relation to today's society. We can relate our lives to Caesar as he changes what he does to look good in front of others, Cassius’ by his concern for others thoughts on him, and Brutus’ influence from the people, to a smaller degree every day.
