Gentrification can bring many things to a city, such as renovation and shifts in an urban community lifestyle and an increasing share of wealthier residents and/or businesses and increasing property values. The bad things it brings would be leaving longtime home owners out of a home because taxes on their property have sky rocketed and can no longer afford to pay. Not only this but in the process of gentrifying a community it kicks out the poorer residents and sends them to other neighborhoods which are just as poor and now overpopulated. If having to choose a side on this topic, I would have to say I am for gentrification. Despite its negative affects, I believe renovation is a huge part of life and that is how cities show economical strength and wealth, which then brings in jobs for many people all
Everyone needs a transportation for going to work, to school, shopping and so on, yet instead of using buses and subway most people drive cars, which makes the air more worse. The serious reason that causes car pollutant is that - China’s gasoline is substandard. Substandard gasoline not only damages the car, but also makes exhaust gas more harmful for people. Driving the cars with low quality gasoline everyday brings terrible results-- air pollution. Moreover, as research shows, nearly nine millions of people in Beijing drive there car everyday.
Some advantages can be a better social integration, opening up new markets, whereas adversities are many, ranging from creating congestion to higher urban unemployment problems. In many cities, overcrowded lanes, increasing pollution, generalized security concerns and a rising cost of living are negatively influencing the everyday experience of its citizens. The most vivid consequence is creation of more and more slums with poor living conditions which have grown exponentially in the last two decades. According to the 2011 census, roughly 1.37 crore households in India live in slums with no proper provision for housing, water, electricity and healthcare. On the flip side can a turnaround be expected in the near future?
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.
Besides, Detroit suggests public transit for reducing traffic congestion and decreasing oil consumption. Even though Detroit 's points are considerable, I strongly disagree with his argument. Detroit made a huge mistake when he assumed that the bus is the "cure-all solution" because it causes more issues than it solves such as wasting time, providing
Another important issue that even students get late to their school and everything will not be in time. Congestion always happens when people go and come from work so employs play a big part in congestion and it happens especially in big cities as the streets are big and people have their own cars not like towns or villages. In big cities, people prefer to use more their own private cars than using public transport but in towns they prefer the public transport. So, in big cities there will always be traffic jam as there are so many private cars in the street. When cars are banned then the traffic jam would disappear and people will be able to arrive in time and won’t affect
More household and individuals living in one community owning one or more cars has a few consequences. A higher amount of vehicles on the streets can cause more traffic, higher pollution rates, and more health problems due to the contaminated air from pollution. Furthermore, loss of open space, habitat, and wildlife is highly impacted due to urban sprawl.
Car safety is something which is extremely important because the roads which we drive on are much more dangerous than what we think. You might think you are a safe driver, and maybe you are, but how about other drivers? Each and every day, hundreds of thousands of cars are on our roads making the causes of a car accident very likely. That is why car safety is so crucial. An important thing such as car safety should be obligatory, will it is now, but 50 years ago seat belts, airbags, cradle zones were not.
Elected officials get too focused on the higher voting districts, and they often forget about the areas where the poor live (Warikoo). Due to lack of concern from elected officials, the challenge of building a better place falls on the parents in these impoverished neighborhoods. However, in Detroit, there is no time for parents to focus on self-improvement or advancement or teach their kids how to focus on self-improvement or advancement because they’re all so focused on surviving (Michigan Commission). If Peter Singer’s solution is implemented, places like Detroit would receive immediate support. Immediate support is needed in places like Detroit because generational poverty makes it virtually impossible to escape the tight grasp poverty has on those affected.
Introduction Electric Cars were introduced more than a century ago. The significant growth and development in the world has led to an increase in transportation, vehicles were in great demand which led to an increase in pollution and other environmental problems. It was in the 1970’s that saw an urgent need for alternative fuelled vehicles so as to reduce the problems of exhaust emission from vehicle’s internal engines. Even though electric cars being introduced more than a century ago, the popularity of the car is increasing today due to the many reasons as before. Be it a hybrid car, plug-in hybrid or all electric, the demand for the autonomous vehicle will continue to rise.
There is stringent law enforcement in some neighborhoods especially in combating drug usage. Many foreign investors are seeking meaningful real estate income by buying property in the area due to the increase in interest rates (Freeman & Braconi 44). The technology revolution is gradually kicking out older and poorer workers out of the labor force. In addition, social stagnation evidenced across societies has capped the jar thus limiting living options for many people in the Bronx. The renewed interest in city life across the United States has put a great premium on urban neighborhoods.
I think that the mass production of the car was a huge factor in the down fall of Detroit. I believe that if Henry Ford had kept his car production at a steady pace, the city would have probably been in a better pace for a longer period of time. Henry Ford brought together so many people at one time. When so many people get together it can lead to bad things, just like what happened in Detroit. People segregated and things just fell apart.
The point of view differed from issues and controversies reason being that it did not converse regarding to the newer technology offered for vehicles. It only mentioned the government and its laws that were needed to be imposed for the citizens, along with statistics from past years about deaths on how they have decreased. When database two in article one “Driving Gets Safer, But Not Enough,” states that the major distracted driving problems is not only in the United States but worldwide. This has us thinking about all the lives that are lost daily. It is done well the way the authors explain certain materials in their articles, having us think and question more than one of their claims.
Statistics show that almost one in six families owned a car. In response to the large demand for automobiles, industries began to grow massively, causing the United States to come out of the recession. After the recession was over, the stock market began to rise from the “pay as you go” method used by most of the people buying cars. Also in 1920, the consumption, distribution, or manufacturing of alcohol became illegal from the eighteenth amendment. In result, many people began “bootlegging”, or making, distributing, or selling illicit goods, alcohol.
Large cities that promote “green” transportation do not improve the lives of their dwellers. In “The Walkability Dividend” Jeff Speck presents his views of beneficial effects caused by alternative transportation in cities. He argues that cities can benefit better from investments in sidewalks and public transportation rather than building better roads and highways for automobiles. Speck says that suburbs are not beneficial for the economy and decrease the quality of life for individuals. His argument for more compact, integrated cities and smaller freeways is exactly why people are moving to suburbs in what is popularly called “Urban Sprawl.” Speck argues that Portland, Oregon is the model, which cities should look up to when designing expansions
