City of Future: Norfolk

City of Future: Norfolk

As a urban city planner I have a lot of big plans for the future city considered as a “smart growth”.  The most important part of my planning is the ending of air pollution through the process of energy.  My plan is to use wind turbines and solar power energy to create energy.  Also, I have plans to help put an end to water pollution by preventing the stop of pestiside run-off. Along with these ideas, there are many more than help bring the “smart growth” idea alive.


Abstract 1: Technology Overview and Impact

Just following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the twin towers, a deadly microbe called anthrax began traveling through mail into the U.S.  The first fatality caused by anthrax through mail was figured to have been exposed to the victim from drinking out of an infected stream.  As people began to speak out and act in fear, the government comforted them by assuring that it was not possible for anthrax to be sent through mail with an amount large enough to cause any serious harm.  Later, Postmaster John Potter came to the conclusion that mail was not safe after employees were diagnosed with a fatal disease known as anthrax inhalation.  Also weighing in to push John Potter to this decision was when they uncovered proof that some anthrax was present in several mail processing centers that send mail to several government functions.  This decision brought attention to homeland security and caused them to accept the challenge of fighting against the anthrax situation, assuring the people that there would be policies instated to greatly improve the security of the U.S.

I think it is a good thing and a bad thing in this situation involving anthrax attacks on the U.S. by terrorist.  I believe it is a good thing because it forced the U.S. to strengthen homeland security through new technologies that resulted in helping build our nation’s trust in it’s own government. These attacks caused the U.S. to have to find new technologies to put an end to these attacks.  Now, we have those technologies so if another situation like this happens to occur again, we will be prepared.  I think the situation was a bad thing because of them harm and fear that was instilled in the people.  I don’t think anything is good when it involves the harm and injury of a person.
