… "


A solution must be found to combat the problem that urban sprawl has spawned. One such solution is called "smart growth."

2. Maximizing the use and management of existing infrastructure prior to expansion.

3. Shifting the energy base to renewable resources and increasing vehicle efficiency.

One such example that has been successful is that of Curitiba, Brazil. Mayor Jaime Lerner has since 1965 "incorporated economic, social…. [read more]

Urban and Suburban Planning Term Paper

… Large metropolitan areas are attractive to many due to the economic, educational and cultural opportunities available in these areas. During much of the 20th century and especially during economic downturns and recessions large amounts of people abandoned rural areas in search of opportunities that were available in large cities.

Satire About Water Pollution Term Paper

… One cannot trust anything these liberals say, they have their own agenda, plain and simple. They love to cause trouble and stir the pot. Even the government says the country does not have a big problem with water pollution. These authors state, "Water quality in the United States, while not showing vast improvement since the early 1970s is at least not getting worse" (Freedman and Jaggi 23). Thus, water pollution is not as big an issue as people make it, and the country can deal with it simply and effectively by simply ignoring the problem, and looking for bigger fish to fry. Other reports show that pollution has increased: "The number of national pollutant registers worldwide has grown rapidly in recent years, fueled by public…. [read more]

Economy? The Most Integral Essay

… ¶ … economy? The most integral aspect of the modern economy is capitalism. Capitalism exists in many different forms and is slowly evolving. However, its basic principles remain the same. Those principles include private ownership of the means of production, individualized profit as the chief incentive to work, and a distinct separation from private and public entities in terms of their monetary pursuits (Giddens et al., 2012, p. 386). Additionally, capitalism is also based on the conception of a free market, in which individuals and organizations are free to engage with whomever they please for the sake of profit. Other inherent concerns pertaining to capitalism include the procuring of labor as inexpensively as possible, as well as that for materials with which to conduct business.…. [read more]

Animal Rights Term Paper

… Losing these predators can tilt the ecological balance, and create other implications throughout the animal food chain. For example, when these top predators disappear from the landscape, other species that share their habitats can experience with overpopulation or population decline. First, overpopulation occurs as the predator-fewer environments encourages swift growth of species which typically would be targets of cougar hunting, such as other large mammals like sheep, coyotes, deer, etc. When the population of these animals grows too large, the result is a shortage of natural resources, such as food and adequate range area. Consequently, the prey species experience advancing death rates due to malnutrition, lack of adequate breeding, or disease spread due to the overcrowding.

Another problem for the cougar is the new suburban…. [read more]

… Asthma is more prevalent among African-Americans. The incidences were almost twenty two percent higher than Caucasians. On average, in every state in American, blacks suffered from asthmatic attacks almost eight percent more than whites did. The Hispanic population also suffered a greater number of attacks.

Energy Balance is the key to a healthy body

More and more people are becoming victims of obesity. While on one hand, the precise causes of this disease are still unclear, the general conclusion most scientists have agreed upon is the disparity between the energy consumed and the energy used. This is to say, obesity occurs when individual lifestyles lead towards excessive food consumption and little to no energy-utilization activities. Zakus (1982) in his study pointed out that certain ailments, namely, Frohlich's, Klinefelter's, Praeder Willi, Klein-Levin, Lawrence Mood Biedl, and Mauriac syndromes, are the underlying causes of childhood obesity. However, these cases, he points out, occur in less than 5% of children (Zakus, 1982).…. [read more]

Bad Public Transportation in America Essay

… When public transportation is designed to fulfill the needs of residents, linking them to high-paying jobs, colleges and universities, and opportunities to start their own businesses, then cities in America might be able to experience revivals. “Underserving the poor is poor public policy,” (Taylor and Morris 347). In fact, suburban residents also deserve better access to an improved public transportation network so that they are less dependent on the personal car, contributing less to environmental degradation and climate change, and living healthier lives. According to the American Public Transportation Association, “45% of Americans have no access to public transportation.” This needs to change via a total transformation of how transportation systems are designed, which first requires a shift in public opinion.

Research shows that…. [read more]
