Living in a big city is a lot different than living in the country. Cities are compact , loud, and always busy; the country is usually isolated, tranquil, and underpopulated. In a city like Chicago, which is home to about 2.8 million people, there are so many things that contrast from the country. In Chicago, there are about 16 houses per block, there are about two schools within a five mile radius, schools are packed, sports aren’t well funded, and education was kind of like a repeat every year.
Chicago neighborhoods are different but closely similar to style and layout. It’s a diverse city with areas that have different atmospheres with parks, restaurants, etc. I want to focus more on ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ and ‘middle’ as a whole. The people would be the main source with the part of living standards about the neighborhood I’m from. This would give a better understanding of how exactly the area is.
Climate change will create a number of health problems in the near future and become a top social issue. Climate will create more smog which will lead to higher rates of and other heat related illness.” Montreal currently has approximately 70 annual heat related deaths, while Toronto has 20. According to the (World health organization,2015). The statistic shows why this has become a social issue because people are dying every year affecting our society. Climate change also affects our world economy. The country is spending a lot of money trying to combat the issue as the country is losing natural resources as well as expected natural disasters are taking place. In 2013 there was an increase in floodings in the Toronto and Vancouver area due to unexpected weather. The clean-up bill came to $1.9 billion — the single most costly disaster in Canadian history — and 90 per cent of it was on the federal tab because Canadians cannot buy flood insurance”(Moore,2015.) As you can see the impacts of climate change leave the government with having to pay massive amounts money when it could be used for other things like creating jobs but that money is often now lost. Climate change has an effect on the environment. The glaciers in the Antarctic are melting as a result of increased amounts of heat now we are losing a part of
Above is my timeline that I was a part of with Ashley Bowden and we decided to do the Chicago area. I was able to talk her into doing Chicago for my love of big cities and architecture. Even as a little kid, I had a love of riding and now driving through the city looking at the massive skyscrapers and the beautiful skyline that Chicago has to offer. Chicago has an interesting story to tell and a big part of that story takes place with the Chicago Fire of 1871. After the Chicago Fire the city needed to rebuild. The land was transformed from early times of farming land to what is now the third biggest city in the United States.
Chicago is commonly referred to as the Chicago metropolitan area or the Chicago land in the United States. It is associated with the city of Chicago, Illinois and its suburbs. The area is among the most populated in the United States with over 9.8
Climate isn’t the only thing changing, our environments are changing too. Our lakes are becoming polluted and eutrophic (Scavia et al.), which causes the overgrowth of algae and death of many of the species found within the lakes. Here in Miami, water has an important role in the value of housing by real estate buyers. (McCormick et al.) Imagine building two houses of identical shape and size. One house is built around a neighborhood devoid of water sources and the
Chicago just recently celebrated its 178th birthday and a lot has changed over the past 178 years. Chicago is known as the 3rd largest city in the United States, but it hasn’t always been that way. Currently an estimated 2.7 million people live in the Chicagoland area. Back in 1837 when Chicago was established, the number of people who lived in Chicago was estimated to be around 4,170 people.
Chicago is a very large city with a large amount of people whom live within the city. This could also be a cause of the violence in chicago. There are about 2.7 million people in Chicago which makes Chicago the third largest city in the United States, behind New York City and Los Angeles. Chicago is the largest city in Illinois and when you put a large group of different people in a large city there could be a problem. In the image below shows chicago's race data. Although the sheer size is a cause of the violence there are many other causes as well.
Do you think social issues still occur in your world today? Just by walking through the neighborhood, issues are able to be seen. Some examples would be family issues, gender inequalities, and economic disparity. While seeing social injustice through three different books, access to housing was very intriguing. Living conditions can vary based on your race. After realizing this, a question came to mind: is my local area segregated like the rest of the world?
The theme of "Chicago" is how life in the city really is. The Acadamy of American Poets states that "Chicago is written so that the average working man can read it and think about his surroundings rather than to become a robot from the repetitious stress consuming him"(47-48). The Carl Sandburg page says that, Oliver Wendle Holmes, a skilled rhymester, told a young poet:
Any American citizen could do much worse than looking to the West Coast, and to Central California in particular. Both in terms of the scale of the impact of climate change there and the implications for Californians. Americans, and even the rest of the world, Central California stands out. The main reasons for this are water and agriculture. The most obvious impact of climate change on California has been drought, as dramatically evidenced by the wildfires that now
Climate change can affect Los Angeles in huge ways. The biggest thing being that in 100 years if something doesn't change for the better there won't be a Los angeles anymore. It would be completely submerged underwater. It is happening now in coastal areas Flooding and erosion are occurring at existing sea levels Which is damaging some California coastal areas. Every year more and more water is being added to the oceans due to global warming and with enough time LA will
1. In Chicago there were many different ritualistic events and activities in which the people were involved, many of which thousands of people would gather just to hear about. “Two thousand people gathered on the sidewalk and street outside the offices of the Chicago Tribune…” The people were gathered to hear the news about the big fair that was coming up. This fair was deep in the hearts of the Chicago people, just as the superbowl is in the hearts of Americans in today’s world.
