David O’Sullivan, from Yonkers NY, brought up some positive things about living in New York City. He talked about the very social environment. “I moved from there to Morehead, KY and it is totally opposite. I like clubs, bowling alleys, a choice of a million restaurants to eat at, and places to hang out, which are the things New York City has.” David also brought up the point that you do not have to own a car in the city. He took the subway everywhere, and got around much faster than compared to dealing with
I’ve lived in Chicago almost all my life. There’s a lot of neighborhoods in Chicago; Good and bad. Living on the south side of Chicago most of my life would make you think there’s nothing but violence in the city. Even though Its bad, I enjoy the neighborhood I live in now. The neighborhood I live in is Roseland, but I grew up in Englewood. Both neighborhoods are similar, but they have their differences.
Not only for its high-rises, architectural feats, business opportunity, or what have you; but the diversity, as well.
It is purely rotten and lifeless, filled with fake and boorish people that will single handily treat someone disgracefully just because of their heritage. Or brutally torture their own daughter for their own enjoyment. This town was a disgust and I promised myself that once I left I would never return, leaving all my haunting memories and nightmares behind.
The Community is important to me the city of Biddeford is a awesome place to live it’s the best place to live in my opinion.
As a military brat, I was born and raised in Jacksonville, North Carolina; and have lived here for most of my life. Recently our family was stationed in San Diego, California, and the move was a great eye-opener for me. When I moved to San Diego, I was surprised by the diversity of cultures, the abundance of activities, and how the crowds of people never stopped. It is an excellent place for people who enjoy being amongst other people; there is never a lack of entertainment day or night. Jacksonville, North Carolina on the other hand, is more for people who like a relaxed and quiet family oriented lifestyle.
The west side of Buffalo, NY has had a bad reputation for a long time now, but it hasn’t always been that way. Many years ago the area known as the west side was a popular and extravagant place to live. Through years of economic hardships however, the west side took a wrong turn somewhere. It is now viewed by many people as “a lost cause.” The crime rates have skyrocketed and the standard of living has plummeted. Gangs are a huge issue in the west side of Buffalo because the gang members scare and intimidate the residents of nearby homes. People are not reporting major crimes because they are scared that they will get hurt because of it. The tenth street gang has been known of by
She always dreamt of building her own mosque one day. Growing up, Hasna had a wonderful experience attending the mosque with her family. However, over time, she became aware of gender disparities that no embodied the spirit of inclusivity she longed for. Upon the completion of her education at University of California Berkeley and University of Southern California, Hasna decide to begin the initiative for a women’s mosque that would highlight and empower female scholars. “According to a Gallup Poll, Muslim women are the second most educated female religious demographic in America,” said Hasna. She began by documenting her ideas, gathering support by giving talks on the need for the space, and held a townhall meeting to gather opinions address concerns. With a board forming and the help of the Pico Union Project, the women were able to organize their first Jumah prayer, led by Edina Lakovic, on January 30th, 2015. Being a highly acclaimed speaker, “her involvement has brought a lot of attention to the mosque” Hasna
This city went downhill when it comes to quality and for that reason my family and I have moved out of the city, the south side to be specific. It just isn't safe anymore. This change affected my more than just moving. Sure West Allis is nice, but it isn’t home. To be honest, home isn’t in the south side either. Thanks to the city's crime rate Milwaukee isn’t my happy place anymore. The crime causes my immediate family not able to live life to the fullest; people cannot be trusted as they once could,
There are many reasons many people love our city. Here are the reasons why: We bet people would look at the wonderful and fall in love. We have many ways to keep our city safe, like a hospital, police station, and a fire station right next to industrial zones and commercial zones. We have lots of entertainments, like malls, restaurants, hotels and etc. We are trying to make edible water bottles, so less trash and plastic is used. Also trying to clean up our city so it's more energy efficient.
Along with the cities growing popularity as a party location the crime rate has experienced a spike as well. A few weeks ago a young woman was gang-raped on the beach by three suspects in front of hundreds of onlookers causing a national uproar. This uproar has been a catalyst to make the city a safer place to visit.
Although to the many new buildings and nice people every little town has their “curses”.
I have lived in Charlotte, North Carolina since I moved from Raleigh at the age of two. For most of my life Charlotte has been a peaceful and loving environment filled with increasing job opportunities. However, the recent events that have come crashing over Charlotte have overshadowed all of the great things that I have to love as child and now young adult. I am sure you are familiar with the tragic shooting of Keith Lamont Scott and the side effects that followed. Not only was my great city put into the limelight for a negative reason, it was also flipped onto its head leaving many of people confused as to what the future may hold. Now, people see Charlotte as an example of what not to be; however, I believe that Charlotte has the ability
The Department of Homeland Security released the 2014 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review on June 18, 2014 as required by the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and its amendments. This review outlined the current state of preparedness, as well as the future areas of concentration. It also determined six strategic challenges facing the nation: terrorist threat; growing cyber threats; biological concerns as a whole; nuclear terrorism; transnational criminal organizations; and natural hazards. The basic building block of emergency management in the U.S. is the local community. Each step begins here. Threat assessments are completed on the local level. Planning, mitigation, and response are all responsibilities of the local community to support the state and Federal practice using the guidance provided by both.
Where I live is one of the greatest neighborhoods in the city to live in; however it does have its draw backs. Importantly it has nearly everything a resident might want, beautiful picturesque scenery, proximity to shopping, and many of the cultural centers. Nevertheless the roads can be some of the most congested in town, and the streets are not safe to walk late at night.
