With the coming of the technological age many people are thinking about information in ways they never have before. 30 years ago, in order to gain information on a subject we had to search through encyclopedias and hope that the information we needed to find was given.

We have found that not only is the internet making us a more productive society but it is also making us a more analytical society. Through the internet we now have much quicker access to information that at one point was tedious to obtain.

Actually, sustainable development can partly solve the urbanization problems, for it can reduce the impact of the problems such as traffic jam, housing shortage and severe pollution, but it is difficult to completely solve these problems in a short time. Traffic jam Traffic jam is one of the most serious problems of urbanization, almost all the modern cities are facing different levels of traffic jam problems. In general, people can ease the traffic jam and not compromise the quality of life by a policy of sustainable development in two aspects including formulating a more efficient transport pattern and changing the urban construction. For formulating a more efficient transport pattern, there are some specific strategies. Firstly, government can encourage people to pay more attention to public transit.
In order for urban transition to succeed, government must join and encourage more of the OUPs kinds of organizations to help the slum areas. Lower Sustainability In addition to being incapable of providing a suitable environment, urban transition negatively impacts the climate. Migration
James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling were not the first researchers to point out the damaging effects that disorder, such as run-down buildings and graffiti, had on communities. They were, however, the first to accuse disorder of actually encouraging crime. (Gau & Pratt, 2010) The researchers were set on improving the minor problems in communities. Researchers dubbed these irritants “incivilities” or “disorder” and proposed that vandalism, graffiti, prostitution, aggressive panhandling and other socially undesirable conditions were the real causes behind people’s fear of crime. By doing so, Wilson and Kelling believed the appearance of the communities would greatly improve, decreasing the citizen’s fear of crime.
Social learning theorists believe that even though mental or physical traits might predispose a person toward violence, it is the environment around them that activates their inclinations to think and act violently (Siegel et al., 2013, pg. 106). Some people are more susceptible to participating in criminal activity due to the environment they are in or grew up in. Those that are homeless or living in poor neighborhoods might feel like they have to steal in order to survive to survive. This decision isn’t influenced by a person’s genetics or physical/ mental development, but on the circumstances
It was chilly dawn on March 13th, 1964 that 28-year-old bar manager Catherine Kitty Genovese was walking home. While she was walking towards her house, a 29-year-old machine operator came out and stabbed her twice in the back. Catherine was frightened and desperately screamed for help. There were 38 citizens who watched the killer stabbing the woman, but no one called the police as they did not want to be involved in the situation. As a result, Catherine died while her urgent cries were unanswered by 38 witnesses (Martin Gansberg, 1964).
Location may also play a factor in how people respond to a crime. In large cities, such as New York where the Genovese case occurred, crime would be more common, rather than a small town like Brockville. The higher crime rate may desensitize the people so that they no longer feel the need to react, whereas someone unfamiliar with crime may take more serious action. This could reflect on society, as the more crime people experience, the less they do about
Next they had a lady lay on the steps and after 4 minutes and 30 seconds a man finally comes over to help and forms what a narrator refers to as a new group with new rules to actually help. After the man comes to her assistance so does another lady and then more people follow. In the next part of the experiment they have Peter come back dressed as business man and it only takes 6 seconds before someone comes to help him. A real life example of bystander effect is the police brutality incident that happened at Spring Valley High School where a 15 year old girl was tackled and assaulted by a police officer for no reason that justified that treatment. In the video her peers and teacher just stood by and watched it happen without stepping in or speaking up.
Bystander effect, (Darley & Latane, 1970) refers to decrease in helping response when there are bystanders around relative to no bystanders. Referring to previous study stating that there are some cases of which group size may promote helping instead of hindering it (Fischer et al., 2011). Researchers then speculate the possibility of positive influences from bystanders by taking public self-awareness into consideration. Researchers proposed that high public self-awareness would reverse the bystander effect in this study with 2 independent variables which are bystander and presence on the forum. They are defined as number of bystanders (absent vs present) and salience of name (salient vs non-salient) respectively.
