We can see this in the layout of towns and cities today. There is clear segregation between pedestrians and vehicles. In the early 1960’s Colin Buchanan, an engineer was asked by the government to write a report on Traffic in Towns. His report brought about change in how pedestrians and vehicles were viewed and the design of urban space. It was however a very contentious political issue (Taylor et al 2009, p327).

Case Study Project 04/04/2011 An Analysis of Case Study 1.2 “Volkswagen struggles to get back on the road” Volkswagen (VW) – the people’s car. There is significance of meaning in this name that ties in not only with Volkswagen’s historic past, but also provides insight into problems that the company faces in our relative present. Our focus in this paper will be analysis regarding the subject of Volkswagen as presented in Case Study 1.2. This analysis will draw on the circumstances behind Volkswagen’s establishment and highlight concepts such as corporate governance and corporate mergers. We will explain how corporate governance has played a significant role in shaping Volkswagen, in terms of strength and weakness during the time this textbook was published; and to conclude, we will provide an update emphasizing how mergers have played a role in where Volkswagen is today.
Urbanized: The Relationship Between City Design and Citizens “There is no doubt whatever about the influence of architecture and structure upon human character and action. We make our buildings and afterwards they make us. They regulate the course of our lives.” Winston Churchill, addressing the English Architectural Association, 1924 How many times have you walked into a building, or a city’s center and are immediately struck by how the design leads you? The approach to city planning is not solely based on the mind of the architects. It takes a collaboration of city planners, government recommendations, a consideration of urban networks such as subway and bus systems, and an awareness of the public needs before decisions are made.
In this paper we will be studying the concepts of subcultures and urban space linked to the main topic of graffiti. A subculture can be defined as a cultural group within a larger culture, often having different beliefs or interests than those of the larger culture (Oxford Dictionary of Sociology). Urban space refers to any public open space, for example parks, streets and plazas. Although urban spaces are generally open to public some may be private in which case the owner has the right to do as he wishes. Throughout this paper we will attempt to answer the question; what can the study of young people’s everyday cultures bring to an understanding of education and learning?
More specifically, public sphere is the practice of democracy through mediation and dialogue, result of which should lead to the shaping of political power and policy by public opinion. Habermas’ classical study has brought to light important problems in developing the theory of the public sphere. From this study, Sinekopova discusses the nature of rhetorical personification of the public sphere and reveals its general bases and biases. He identifies four main fundamental concepts that Habermas builds his theory from, alongside four other unacknowledged assumptions through which they operate. The bases and biases are named as autonomy versus binary, historization versus ethnocentrism, transparency verses lingosentrism and logocentrism verses teleological bias.

Colton 3/26/07 Dr. Stanonis HIST 106 Tourism in the Big Easy In professor Stanonis’ book Creating The Big Easy, he describes how the city of New Orleans tried to discover herself through the first half of the 20th century. New Orleans was constantly trying to find her niche in an increasingly urbanizing America. In the early years of the 20th century she attempted to shed her past and convert to a city of factories, businesses, and conventions. Ultimately, however, the “Big Easy” embraced its colorful past and opened herself up to tourists. The automobile, rise of the middle class, and the election of Robert Maestri as mayor all led to New Orleans becoming a city devoted mainly to tourism.
I chose the topic the birth of the automobile culture because researching something that is so important to society, intrigued me. The first production car ever made was the Model T by Henry Ford. It was a very simple two-seater mostly made of wood with very simple mechanics. The model T was intended with the average middle class American in mind. (The automobile industry, 1920-1980) This was very big not only for the new invention of the first production car but it also offered many new jobs for factory workers needed to produce the mass number of cars that were in high demand.
ESSAY BUSTING BUREAUCRACY: WHY HIGHLY CONTROLLED MACHINE ORGANIZATIONS MUST DIE EVEN IN MATURE INDUSTRIES – FINDING NEW WAYS TO DEAL WITH FAILURE. 1 Busting Bureaucracy: Why highly controlled machine organizations must die even in mature industries – Finding new ways to deal with failure. “Fail earlier to succeed sooner” – Michael Dell, founder of Dell Inc. When Henry Ford introduced the principles of highly standardized jobs to automotive manufacturing at the dawn of the 20th century it revolutionized a whole industry. Higher efficiency, less costs, and increased margins for the Ford Motor Company justified the approach that turned workers into robots (Ritzer, 2013).
