Old practices became a thing of the past with the fast-paced city drawing people into a new life. This worried religious people, hoping that their attendees wouldn’t leave them. Many felt alienated from city life and modernization. This led to direct conflicts against the teaching of science and evolution in schools. This can be seen through the Scopes Trial fiasco of 1925, where fundamentalisms tried putting a teacher in Tennessee behind bars for teaching such things. People drove their cars to town rather than the church down the road. Although, fundamentalism did have some success in the city. Los Angeles’s Church of the Four-Square Gospel, created by Aimee McPherson, sat more than 5,000 worshipers. Even still, the upsurge in fundamentalism was cased by the fear of losing attendance and faithful patrons, creating church communities that were stronger than ever.
Automobiles. Telephones. Lightbulbs. These were some of the major technological innovations created during 1865 to 1920. These creations impacted many Americans, even to this day. The groups of people that were most changed by these new innovations were factory workers, middle-class urban residents, and midwestern farmers. There were many effects that these creations had on these groups of people. These innovations allowed travelling and the transporting of goods to be easily accomplished, made communication between others simpler and more efficient, and allowed for better and safer ways of lighting to be established.
Speeding is the act or practice of exceeding the speed limit. Speeding is very dangerous. It is not only dangerous for us, but for those around us. Injury Facts, 2012 Edition tells us that thirty-two percent of motor vehicle fatalities involve speeding. That is such a large percentage that can easily be decreased if everyone, including myself, would stop speeding. The major dangers of speeding include the environmental aspect, driving too fast for road conditions, and speeding kills.
Statistics show the percent of sixteen year olds that got into an accident was significantly less than those of twenty-five year olds. Many states, however are concerned for the safety of teens and believe that driving should be raised to eighteen as a minimum age. The age requirement for teen drivers should not be raised because it increases responsibility skills, and allows teenagers to have more experience in driving.
The 1920s, also known as the “Roaring Twenties”, was an exhilarating time full of significant social, economic, and political change. For most Americans, it was full of the prosperity and peace that followed World War I. Middle-class life was full of leisure and class. For others, this time period was filled with hardships and challenges. Many immigrants and African-Americans faced discrimination and segregation from the rest of the United States.
Have you ever thought of what might be an important cultural artifact that influences our everyday life? Believe it or not, we make use of cultural artifacts much more than one would think. The cultural artifact that I am choosing to focus on, cars, play an important role in our everyday life by allowing our culture to move about our world and travel to new and interesting places. Andy Crouch has provided us with five thoughts that will help us better understand our culture and the role of cultural artifacts. Through these five thoughts, we will be able to understand the importance of cars throughout our culture and the impact that cars have made in our culture.
Driving can be frustrating. It doesn 't matter when, where, or what but its frustrating. An issue that needs to be addressed is Arizona drivers who drive slow in the fast lane. Little do they know this adds extra danger as well as frustration to the equation. Slow drivers are way to common. Some people at some point have had a run in with a slow driver. Even though driving slowly is not a crime, it frustrates us. The reason this paper is being written is not to bag on slow drivers, but to make slow drivers who specifically drive slow in the fast lane about the danger that them doing this can cause. I understand that some people might think, "what 's the problem
The technology that we have today is unbelievable compared to what the companies had when we first started to make cars. We all know that our future is getting more and more advanced, and we will possibly have these self driving cars within the next ten years. Overall, we need to prepare ourselves for the next generation of cars. This research paper is written to explain safety, pollution, and time that will be saved with the use of self driving cars.
The 1920’s was a time of major change for America, both economically and socially. This economic change can be attributed to the mass production of automobiles. The largest car company at this time was the Henry Ford Motor Company. Henry Ford’s industrialization of the automobile changed people’s lives, altered America’s landscape, and created more employment opportunities.
Thousands of people die each year from auto accidents. Many deaths caused by speeding leave families devastated. “Speeding accidents about as popular as drinking and driving accidents” (Boyles). Speed limits is supposedly what keeps us safe while out on the road. Many people think that they do not need to follow the speed limit signs. An opinion would be that speed limits should stay the same speed or even go down. Teenagers seem to like the high speeds. Teenagers are the ones who are most likely to be the ones speeding in today’s society because they think it is “cool” to speed. In today's world, some vehicles can not travel at high speed rates. No matter how old there are people feel the urge to not obey the roadway laws, which therefore kills thousand of people each year. Many factors go into the dangers of speeding including vehicles not being able to handle the high speeds, driver's reaction time,
The principal at Riverwood High School recently proposes that all school bus drivers shut off their bus engines while waiting for students to board buses in the school parking lot or whenever buses are parked for several minutes. As the bus drivers turn on the engine, whether while waiting for the students or delivering students from home to school and vice versa, several gasses are produced such as carbon dioxide (CO2) that are emitted from the vehicle into the atmosphere. As CO2 in the atmosphere increases, more heat is trap in the atmosphere which contribute to the climate change. In addition, carbon monoxide (CO) have contributed into polluting the atmosphere while the bus are idling. CO are a poisonous gas that are odorless and colorless. They
Cars can release 2 different kinds of pollution. There is primary pollution that goes straight into the air to pollute it and secondary pollution. this occurs when pollutants in the air have a chemical reaction. This is very effective against the atmosphere. But if we all use different sources like battery powered cars ten we could use our limited supply of fossil fuels for other more important things, or just leave it alone.
Feel like saving a couple bucks, how about hundreds? I have chosen to do my informative speech on the impact of Electric Cars on the automotive industry, the environment, the economy, and society today. Electric cars have formed a large scale impact on the automotive industry itself, providing a lot more options for people looking for a car. The environment is helped by these cars because there are less emissions produced by these cars as opposed to traditional gas. The economy has changed as a result of this because the cars do not require gasoline fill ups to run, but electric bills will rise as a result of charging. Society has benefited as well, providing a more diverse selection of automobiles, offering a more upfront cost and a lower
The air we respire contains mixture of natural and man-made chemical, physical and biological elements that modifies ambient air quality. Among all air pollutants, the most threatening for human health include particulate matter and gaseous pollutants such as carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide (WHO). The movement of people into urban areas and the growth of industry within these areas has carried more people into contact with air pollution than any other time in recent memory. High concentrations of air pollutants can cause instant physical symptoms such as rapid pulse and restricted breathing but, even the presence of trace amounts is considered detrimental to health (Levy et al., 2000).
“The best solution to pollution is dilution”. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s’ report of 2010 Transportation contributes 13% to the global greenhouse gas emissions. So, have you ever thought of diluting the emissions by switching to Hybrid Vehicles? You may be thinking that Hybrid Vehicles are modern inventions due to technological advancements but did you know that it existed prior to the invention of the conventional gasoline vehicles. I have no prior knowledge about Hybrid cars but once I heard about an electric car produced by Tesla and it made me very curious to know more about the topic I have done research on the Internet. In my speech today I am going to speak about the Development of hybrid vehicles. Innovations and Configurations in the Hybrid Vehicles have significant impacts on the environment. First, I will give a brief description about the Hybrid Vehicles and follow it up by discussing the Innovations and Configurations in Hybrid Vehicles and finally, discuss the Environmental impacts of hybrid vehicles.
