MARTA Five Points Station and its Crumbling Society

http://committeeforabetteratlanta.org/the-issues/homelessness/ Five Points MARTA Station is deteriorating, and a very uncomfortable place to catch the train. The little police presence from time to time, and growing crime rate is awful. The hard thing to realize is that the majority of people who do the crimes and are homeless are minority groups. MARTA is the Atlanta areas’ transportation system. It is a great source of transportation, but there is a difference when it comes down to where it is located. Marta Five Points Station is a symbol of the Gender, Race, and Class discrimination in the downtown area location. I can explain why this is happening. I have provided a link for more general imformation about the MARTA station. http://itsmarta.com/about-marta.aspx http://transitmap.net/post/12008335545/marta-atlanta Locations There are five train stations I use to get around the inner and outer city area. Those are: Five Points, Peachtree Center, Midtown, Arts Center, and Lenox. In the picture above, Five Points Station is the center of all train stations and it is the quickest way to get to each station. If this is the central hub for all stations, then why is it the most rundown area? Why it is that minority groups suffer the most with their built environments? Let me start off with the first station I mention, which is Five Points Station. This is located in downtown Atlanta. It is approximately an 11 minute walk away from my dormitory. I use this station if I want to get somewhere quickly, but I rarely use it. Peachtree Center Station is located on Peachtree Street in the hub of the downtown city area, next to...

Five Points Station: Racial Equality?

http://committeeforabetteratlanta.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/homeless.jpg When riding the train at Five Points Station you would think that it would be secure and safe. We do not live in a perfect world, but there are some places that call for security. For example, the shopping mall has plenty of security hanging around to make sure merchandise is not stolen and people are safe. MARTA is the Atlanta areas’ transportation system. It is a great source of transportation, but there is a difference when it comes down to where it is located. Marta Five Points Station is a symbol of the Gender, Race, and Class discrimination in the downtown area location. I can explain this all. For those who do not know what MARTA is or looks like I have provided a link to where you can find more information about the transportation system. http://itsmarta.com/about-marta.aspx http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ltqywcrHTc1r54c4oo1_1280.jpg Locations There are five train stations I used to get around the inner and outer city area.

UPS and Their Great Diversity

I started my internet stalking at three in the evening, I made sure to give myself tie to look over every aspect of this page. As usual, the company logo appears as the page loads up. You see the symbolic brown and yellow on their banner stretched across the home page. The first image to truly catch my eye was this picture of a plane’s engine. I believe that it was the right engine if I am not too sure. This plane’s engine could mean that UPS does not only work on the ground, but also delivers airmail. I believe it can also show that they are international which means that they have a big diversity group. I continue to look around the home page and there is a tool bar on the left which basically goes over shipment, package tracking and pick-up. I love how you do not need to go through many pages just to track your package because you can simply just type in your tracking number in the box to your left. This would be great for seniors or an other person who may not be as tech savvy as some people.  If you want to keep up with the latest new on UPS it is also right there on the front page. Some websites require you to do a bit of digging to find an article related to the company. So, in order to find out more about the “isms” I had to do some searching because I did my annotated bibliographies on disabled people. I did not find any pictures of disabled people, but...

UPS Consumerism

  When looking at this picture, I thought about two colleagues just having a casual talk. When I look in the back there are even more people in the background. Maybe this is a convention on consumerism in the business. Do companies usually have a convention to go over sales or just products. This could be it. The caption underneath does not give a good bit of information, that could be why they want you to click on it to find out more about consumer services. I also feel like this is targeting women, saying that women are big consumers and just generally talk about how to sell or by more materials. I do like that the women are portrayed as discussing business, because they are in business attire. It would just be more stereotypical of the women just buying a bunch of UPS boxes or shopping online using UPS to send them their item of...
