Accumulation of waste & how it can affect the living things in our environment

Atlanta downtown is a place where nice attractions like the Georgia aquarium Zoo Atlanta, World of Coca-Cola and the Centennial Olympic Park. The most interesting part of Atlanta is the downtown region. A couple of advantages living in downtown would be that there are spectacular views and is very spacious. A couple of disadvantages would be that it is a polluted area and it is not very safe as many crimes do occur here. Waste can come in the form of food, debris, bottles, bags, construction debris etc. Trash can be recycled to make new boxes and cardboards. Garbage is the waste found in restrooms and kitchens. Garbage and trash accumulate to pollute the environment. Some people don’t even bother to take initiative to reduce or manage the waste we create. As a consequence it harms the living conditions of animals and human beings. The trash in Atlanta can be really gross. Especially in downtown when it all accumulates and gives out a stench into the environment. It can severely affect the environments health. Wastes rot and create holes in the ground. Methane gas is produced into the air and this also contributes to the greenhouse effect. Trashcans and dumpsters are found everywhere in Atlanta but people choose not to pick up trash found on the floor. Red, blue and green bins are used to throw away different types of trash. The famous slogan Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! also referred to as the 3Rs is known nationwide. Each color of bins have their own purpose. For example, the red bins are used to throw away cans, plastic water bottles, dishes,...

Built Environment Description: Digital Environment

Atlanta Silverbacks: The Atlanta Silverbacks are members of the National Premier Soccer League in the United States and hold home field matches near Spaghetti Junction and Pleasantdale Rd. They have been in existence since 1998 and are named in honor after Willie B. from the Atlanta Zoo. They reach out into the community to help foster the youth into an active and academia focused lifestyle. Upon entering the website, I was immediately greeted with the above screenshot of smiling youth. On this scrolling image there were strategically placed links that would take you through the cycled images direct links. In general, the immediate homepage was busy in detail but it was still very easy to navigate. In a quick, swirl of the head, I was able to find information on the Silverbacks Park, Indoor League, Summer League and location of their stadium. At the top was a row of additional drop down menus that were made up of the Atlanta Silverbacks team colors of: red, black and white. It was not frozen, so as you scrolled through the homepage, it would disappear if you traveled too low. This row had drop down information on the main pictures shown on the above screenshot; which seemed redundant. In all honesty, it was astonishing to me that the men and woman premier leagues were not the focal point of this digital environment. After searching through the tabs above, I was able to finally navigate into the Atlanta Silverbacks Men homepage. This area was completely covered in Red and Black and consisted of a black and white frozen background image of their arena....

“Better Online Living through Content Moderation”

In this article, Melissa King talks about how people who suffer from PTSD or users who want to make their “online experiences” less irritable have every right to content control features. Critics of content control features believe that people like this are “too sensitive” and they should be able to deal with whatever comes from these online experiences. Despite their opinions, the author states how the content control features are very helpful in eliminating any anxiety attacks. The author then goes on to discuss computer-chair psychology and how exposure therapy can “inure an individual to these triggers and lesson the disruptions they can cause”, but it is more harmful than helpful to the individual in this case of anxiety. In this case of the exposure therapy “trauma is magnified rather than reduced when faced with triggering content”, therefore content exposure should be controlled. She then talks about how blocklists have come to rise and how many people feel they are being “defamed” when added to the blocklist. King states that these arguments fail to acknowledge “how vicious and pervasive online harassment can be” and it is always the right of the victim to take steps to protect themselves. At the end of the article the author talks about how women suffer greatly from these attacks and there is an issue of sexism. She concludes that with issues like sexism and online bullying that hold great evidence of PTSD, people should be able to control their online...

The Majestic Diner: Interior Built Environment Description

Mark Lamar March 4, 2016 Interior Built Environment Description The Majestic Diner in Atlanta, Georgia is where I conducted my research for my interior built environment description.  Located on Ponce De Leon Avenue near a cluster of other historic sites, the restaurant stands out as a unique spot from first glance.  From the outside, one can already begin to smell the freshly scrambled eggs as soon as you begin to approach the elaborate neon sign that brands the landmark. When you finally reach the translucent glass entrance of the restaurant, you are free to seat yourself anywhere in the diner and begin to search the menu.  Round, bright light bulbs draw your attention to the most popular menu choices displayed high on the wall above the kitchen.  The inside of the building is decorated with several presumably historic pieces of art, commemorating the state of Georgia, and the city of Atlanta itself.  Red accents on the seats, booths and counters of the diner create a consistent, simple aesthetic that is pleasing to the eye and makes the font of the menu easy to read.  The inside may feel a bit crowded or clustered to some as the way the dining area is constructed is reminiscent of that of a shotgun house. The way the grills and deep fryers are positioned directly in front of the patrons gives off a very down-home southern vibe.  It feels as if you are resting at your grandma’s while she cooks a hot meal for you to eat before you get back on the road.  And honestly, I feel that is why the Majestic...
