Large amounts of data in a complicated format were not beneficial to the citizens resulting in lack of engagement. This prompted the need and use for a consolidated, user-friendly report aimed at the target audience. The reports also provide transparency in reporting government finances by including government-wide projects and notes. This study was important to evaluate a tool currently being utilized for citizen-engagement and the relationship between implementing and increased public
The issue of homelessness in America is controversial because Americans have different views on the causes, conditions, and solutions to homelessness. Advocates for the homeless cite economic problems, a limited supply of affordable housing, and domestic violence as the main causes of homelessness, while opponents vehemently contend that homelessness in America is due solely to a lack of personal industry. Nevertheless opponents and advocates for the homeless are in agreement on the conditions of homelessness, but the solutions to homelessness are vigorously debated by both groups. Opponents cite personal responsibility (a steady job) as the main solution to homelessness, while advocates for the homeless cite a steady, well-paying job, and
In chapter two of Money, Greed, and God, Jay W. Richards says that the federal government doesn 't appropriately distribute welfare to those who need it. In addition, Richards says that the government should simply stay out of matters this small because they could be better handled by smaller more locally run organizations. In essence, the federal government is “too big” to know how to help the needy. I completely disagree with this assertion. Although the federal government is big and oblivious to who exactly needs what, it is still a necessary part of the welfare distribution system because of the money it has and all the power needed to deliver said funds.
Though we claim to allow freedom of speech, it’s suddenly “politically incorrect” to say words like retarded or black. Too many folks worry about hurting feelings when that is the very least we need to be concerned about. Children are starving, homeless, without parents in grimy alleyways on the streets of New York, but rather than trying to help them, we’re too wrapped up in our selfish offenses. To contemplate this is truly sickening. All around this country churches are getting smaller and bars are getting bigger.
When it comes to buying or renting a house they go through a more complicated process than a heterosexual couple and there is not a federal law in place to prevent it (Human Rights Campaign,b). Some challenges are when buying or selling a home they have to pay more in taxes, discriminated when shopping for a home, they cannot put their partner 's name on the lease or homeowner’s insurance policy (Human Rights Campaign,b). The human rights campaign states, “…Couples have been discriminated against when shopping for a home. Others have been told they cannot put both partners ' names on a homeowner 's insurance policy, which is important to do if both partners share ownership of the home. And still other couples have been discriminated against when filing a claim as some insurance companies have attempted to refuse claims or cancel policies on the grounds that the owners are "unrelated"” (Human Rights Campaign,b).
The main logistical problems surrounding the introduction of these roads is the already dense New York City road network, which has limited room for expansion, and even if there is room, the funding would be difficult to acquire after the recent failures in improving public safety in the City. Another problem is that drivers in the city would not leave a lane open regardless of the reasoning for the lane, and keeping these lanes clear would be difficult to enforce. Another difficult solution to implement would be raising the number of police officers. In today’s economy, people are moving away from jobs such as becoming police officers or firefighters, and are trying to obtain more service oriented jobs. Public safety jobs do not nearly pay as much as service oriented jobs, and the added dangers of public safety jobs scare away young people from this career
Multiple authorizers mean there is no oversight. As there is a continual push for more charter schools in urban communities, so is the push for multiple authorizers. Especially since the argument can be made that, charter schools are better performing in urban areas. But as explained by Green, having multiple authorizers could be more potentially dangerous for charter schools because it has the possibility of leading to poorer performing schools who is not accountable to the students or the parents.
If that doesn’t happen, the government must find another way to finance their budget. On the other hand, California is a divided state, which makes hard to pass bills. Thus, the addition of two-third majority and 50% plus one is essential for raising taxes. But the political parties refuses to work together because they have different point of views from the economy. The republicans think that raising taxes won’t solve any problem.
The inability of justice programs to work as they are intended to is seen as one of the significant problems facing the justice system. Welsh and Harris (2013) seeks to explain the inability of the justice programs to not work in stating, “The problem is that many criminal justice interventions fall short of their goals because of poor planning, poor implementation, and poor evaluation. It is fair to say we have not yet discovered “what works” to reduce crime.” From this, it is clear that the development of interventions is not the issue and not the cause for them to not succeed in their mandates but the problem is within their planning. Welsh and Harris (2013) believes that in order to
Homelessness is a very huge problem that America has come to face. People should not just give the homeless the silent treatment and keep on walking like nothing is wrong. In order for the homeless problem to stop, we “the people” must make it end by helping the less fortunate get to shelters or to some other source of help. The major problems of homelessness
