As the car was in motion on the way to where I would be staying I rolled the window down. Something other than the tall green grasses and canopy trees caught my attention. I finally started to see some scattered buildings, hotels, and restaurants. The city started to seem more urbanized, that wasn 't the only infrastructure that I saw, more was yet to come. As we went deeper into the rural areas the buildings disappeared and the sidewalks started to become more deteriorated.
In her “Uses of Sidewalks”, she has a very different way of looking at cities and is more concerned about dangers and possible safety precautions. She is well known for her opposition to urban renewal of New York city which brought her into direct conflict with mega-planner and bureaucrat Robert Moses. She discusses questions such as what makes a community, what is a neighborhood, and what makes a city livable. She was deeply concerned about women, children and minorities. She proposes that neighborhoods with active sidewalks are safer neighborhoods, and the ones with nearly deserted sidewalks are being
The Robot that Stopped it All In this short story of The Pedestrian, Bradbury develops a society of the advancement of technology can destroy the uniqueness in this dystopian story. The society in this story has been taken over by technology, instead of people taking night strolls or walking their dogs; they would rather stay home and occupy themselves with something that involves watching a “viewing screen”. Since this has happened, walking seems like an oddity because no one does it anymore.

The ethnography helped me tracked and observed what common activities occur throughout the streets. One of the most common activity is running or jogging through the trails. There are lots of trails that cut through parks or park-like areas that
Mitchell Porter’s passage from “I Went to the Forest” explains how nature should be protected because it is peaceful place where people can relax and get away from their industrial lives. Porter persuades his audience that it is necessary to preserve nature before it is too late through her use of word choice, a personal anecdote, and an analogy. Porter’s several uses of stylistic and persuasive elements help him strengthen the logic and persuasiveness of his argument. By using the words such as “same”, “more”, and “frequently”, he shows the reader how monotonous today’s society is with it’s similar malls, restaurants, etc. By using these words, he illustrates how the monotony of communities replaces “the miraculous and infinite variety of
Globalization has drastically modified how various cultures and societies affect each other. The disturbances caused by globalization have developed several issues among anthropologists, such as, how do we study such complex circumstances? Transnational families and global nationalism in particular, have introduced foreign obstacles for anthropologists, as there is no set, scientific ways to study such realities.
