Timeline: Final Assessment Michael Crichton’s view on the medieval period is different than that of our understandings from first glance. Crichton compares today’s modern society to that of the medieval society, and even goes as far as saying it is superior that that of ours. Some of his portrayals are well devised and backed up in his writing of timeline, while his other theories aren’t as well developed and not entirely true. Michael suggests such themes as the greater value of knowledge, decreased amount of violence, and superior technology to that of the twentieth century. They may have made new and greater technology and advanced on such things as the mill, cannon, and quicklime, but I don’t believe that it is greater compared to those advancements made in modern times, just for example, the internet and cell phones.
What would your decisions be concerning the amenities, the parking alternatives and the interest rate hedge? Yes, because yes the market is slowing but Hassett is not just building office space but a consummate full service office park. By 1988, business began to slow; many predicted that the mini computer industry faced consolidation, which would likely lead to lay-offs and a reduced need for office space. In the North office space is selling for $22 per square foot per year, in the South its was from $18.50 to $26.00 per square foot, and where they are planning to build 400 fifth Ave its $23.50 to $27. The west is right in the ballpark of the other two markets the advantage that the West has is that the area is expected to benefit greatly in the future from Newton/Wellesley’s.
To start with, often when people from a foreign country don't fit with the American customs they became disoriented when they have to face a different system of living. Some foreigners come to U.S.A. and fit right in, while others develop a counterculture. New York City (N.Y.C.) is one of the biggest cities in the United States. It is so culturally diverse that you can walk down in Broadway street, got to the movies, go shopping, and go to the restaurant and hear nine different languages in one day.
They had predicted a loss for the new facility within the budget but they were not able to predict the economic downturn. The new facility is located in an area where individuals have better insurance and younger population base so, the speculation is the revenue generated would be more profitable, unlike the facilities in Seattle that have a higher population on Medicare and Medicaid.

Joan Lee Period 1, AP Us History 5 January 2010 Chapter 25 America Moves to the City 1865-1900 Through industrial revolutions, many Americans began to abandon their agrarian farm lives and grasp the life of the City. Not only were Americans following this trend, many Europeans begun to desert farming and search for fresh job opportunities in the cities. This instigated a prodigious increase of city dwellers and minimized the amount of farmers in the U.S. I. The Urban Frontier (pages 557-560) a.
They did not focused on the new architecture of New York at this time period, Instead the target were the people whom resided in New York. The subjects of these works of art focused on “Immigration, advertising and mass communication, popular entertainment, shifting gender roles, the opulent display of high society.”(Zurier et el13) Zurier supports her thesis with examples of artworks seen throughout the book. These Ashcan artists used their art to stress important issues in New York at this time. Zurier mentions the powerful captivating and disturbing emotions these pieces of artwork influenced, “The city was being powerfully shaped by the presence of immigrants, and just as these newcomers consciously and unconsciously were redefining the identity of the city” Jacob Ritz for example, demonstrated the issue of disease and disorder threw his photograph “Knee-pants” (Zurier et el 23) he emphasizes the poor working and living conditions of immigrants in New York. Another example seen was of William Glackens “The crowded city street” this piece of artwork signified the chaotic streets of New York and Social welfare programs.
Economic changes are slowly taking place to accommodate the intermixing of cultures. The city of Oakland, California passed a rule in April of 2001 that required applicants for most city jobs to be proficient in at least two languages. Businesses are faced with many hard choices in dealing with the diversity in cultures. They have to determine how to conduct business when minorities are not necessarily the minority group, when a racial category doesn’t measure race, and when so-called disadvantaged groups have more education and income than advantaged groups. When millions of people are so genetically mixed that they go beyond any racial label, it seems that change is
Living close to the factories was convenient but uncomfortable and unhygienic since a structured city had not been developed yet. As the time progresses, the leader of France, Napoleon III, decided to urbanize and modernize the city of Paris with the help of architect Baron Georges-Eugene Haussmann. An end needed occur to the “chaos” that stemmed from the migration of middle class workers to these new industrial areas. Napoleon’s urban planning of Paris would open the doors to urbanize and modernize other areas of the world as well. In Emily Kirkman’s excerpt “Architecture in the Era of Napoleon III”, she describes the “chaos” that existed within Paris and the urban make over it received when Napoleon III and Baron Haussmann began their urban planning to transform Paris.
The documentary, Urbanized, by Gary Hustwit's examines urban development worldwide. He notes that more people are moving towards the cities from rural areas placing a great deal of strain on city planners as they formulate their strategies for the coming years of development. I was struck by the diversity of needs by the cities mentioned in the documentary. Mumbai has as many people living in slums as all of London and is set to be the largest city in the world in 2050 according to the documentary. Poor people are moving into slums because the city design has no space for them and this lack of space causes slums to become more and more dense.
What are the issues for people living in richer parts of the world? 1: housing Population has grown by 7% since 1971 and it will continue to grow. The number of households since 1971 had grown by 30%; this is mostly because people live alone. More people are demanding houses being built because people leave home earlier, marry later divorce and live later. The government want to build 240,000 houses every year until 2016 so that prices do not spiral out of control.
