Traffic And Urban Congestion: 1955-1970 - 1,551 words
In 1960, Great Britain still had no urban freeways. But with the ownership of private cars becoming ever more common, the problem of congestion in British cities was unavoidable. Investigating the possibilities of freeways as alleviators of big-city traffic jams, the government-sponsored Buchanan Report was pessimistic: ... the study shows the very formidable potential build-up of traffic as vehicular ownership and usage increase to the maximum. The accommodation of the full potential is almost certainly beyond any practical possibility of being realized. There is thus no escaping the need to consider to what extent and by what means the full potential is to be curtailed.1. In the decades pr ...

A change in the demand patterns takes considerable time to run through, and the customer often will not wait. This allows each job or customer to be processed without delay. Often it is possible to get the desired results by moving process stages closer together-shortening the flow path-which at the same time reduces in-process inventories and cuts flow time. Cut Setup.

With unemployment at its lowest and the demand for skilled and unskilled workers at a high where do business owners turn to fill the empty positions. A large percentage of them hire foreigners; most of which have a H-1B visa.

In urbanized areas with substantial amount of congestion caused by motorization, road pricing offers the best solution since it promotes both the purposes; it encourages that the socially efficient number of trips be undertaken and raises revenue to finance road ways and transport expansion to the efficient level. More ever, road pricing can contribute to viable loan financing and voluntary participation of the private sector. Some supplements to other basic taxes which may be used are petrol tax and parking fees, which should be set such that they can contribute to t ...

Nonpoint sources-runoff water containing pesticides and fertilizers from acres of agricultural land, for example-are much more difficult to control. Pollution arising from nonpoint sources accounts for a majority of the contaminants in streams and lakes. With almost 80 percent of the planet covered by oceans, people have long acted as if those bodies of water could serve as a limitless dumping ground for wastes. Raw sewage, garbage, and oil spills have begun to overwhelm the diluting capabilities of the oceans, and most coastal waters are now polluted. The pollution ...

Meuseargonne Offensive - 1,269 words
Even as Pershing had been preparing and launching this first big American attack, Foch's original plan had been growing by bounds. No longer was the offensive to be confined to a British strike along the Somme and an American drive on Mzires. The new plan also included a Belgian-British-French attack along the Lys and French attacks in between British and Americans. It was to be a grand assault all along the frontsaid Foch: "Tout le monde la bataille!". The aim was to cut the enemy's rail line at Mzires and Aulnoye, the latter in front of the British, and thereby force the Germans to retire inside their frontier before winter set in. For the offensive Foch had 220 divisions160 in line, 60 i ...

Asthma And Exercise - 1,187 words
Asthma is the most common chronic respiratory disease among children and young adults. There are numerous triggers of asthma. In the physical education field (EIA) exercise induced asthma is a very important disease to understand and help maintain stability. Asthma is a chronic lung disease that makes breathing difficult. During an attack, the linings of the bronchial tubes become inflamed and irritated causing mucus production and the constriction of surrounding muscles. These three factors cause a narrowing of the tubes blocking the amount of air into and out of the lungs. This disease cannot be cured but control and treatment will lessen the severity and frequency of attacks. The exact ca ...

Tim Burton - 1,205 words
Although the typical layman would immediately label him an oddball, those who are a little bit more familiar with Tim Burton would say that he's a beautiful mess. Burton was born August 25, 1958 in Burbank, California. He lived in typical suburbia, along with his brother and parents, although he never felt very attached to them. He felt much closer to the films of Vincent Price and the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. While his parents wanted him to go play outside and be "normal," he would rather soak into a 1950's horror movie, or just withdraw into his own mind, into his own world. When asked about his childhood, he responded, "I guess if there was a flavor [of childhood], I guess childhood w ...

Cousin Elmers - 608 words
Driving my just washed shiny red pickup, I let the scent of the car wash's vanilla air freshener fill my nostrils. I was headed across town to Cousin Elmer's Thrift and Engine Parts Store. The windows of the truck were down and sunrays which had been shattered by the giant looming eucalyptus trees standing sentinel on the road were splayed across my forearm. I bounced along Grand Avenue trying in vain to avoid the uncomfortable ruts that had recently been enhanced by a hard rainy season. Repaved in some places and deep troughs in others, I found myself comparing the disrepair to the city in which I lived. My friends from San Diego were at a loss as to why I would choose to live in Lake Elsin ...

California Population - 1,873 words
The population of California is expected to increase by more than 15 million people by the year 2020. This is not a new startling fact. It has been said many times before, in many different ways. This number is equivalent to the present population of Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado combined. Carol Whiteside focuses on how the population boom will affect California's cities. She also looks at how the cities will prepare for such growth, with local resources that are already stretched. Another large focus is on preserving the natural resources and farmland as we expand rapidly. Todays increasing population is created from Migration, Immigration, and more births than deaths ...

Post War Economy - 1,133 words
After years of living with a strict budget because of the Great Depression and the war, during the post-war period, Americans wanted to get their hands on anything they could get, especially automobiles and television sets, which advertised for other products during commercials. They also purchased more refrigerators, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and cameras than ever before. Electric can openers, electric garage door openers, and electric pencil sharpeners appeared on the market and quickly became part of the new way of life. This increase in goods and services that characterized the postwar period, gave Americans the highest standard of living the world had ever known. The United Sta ...

Children raised in a single-parent home are not necessarily more prone to be social misfits (those who have behavioral problems and perform acts deemed as unacceptable by society) than children raised in a two-parent home. First, I gave an operational definition to the term "social misfits" which is ambiguous and could be interpreted in many ways by different people. Also, in making this statement, I examined the evidence. Personal experience and observation of other children raised in single-parent homes led me to this conclusion. The evidence I used is not necessarily the most reliable because it is not based on any group study or scientific research, but the topic is researchable and I be ...

Election - 454 words
Between 1865 and 1900 American cities changed drastically. The development was at its fastest moving point. For example, in 1860 only fifty-eight cities in the country had a population between ten and 50 thousand people. This number by 1900 was up to 369. With this rapid population growth came a need for development in these cities. Electronic trolleys were invented to eliminate the tons of waste from horsecars that had for decades fouled city streets. This also caused congestion however, and to relieve this congestion large cities such as New York elevated portions of transit systems and in turn put communities under noisy and rickety platforms. City sanitation also changed during this fort ...
