Ruth asks…

How many homeless people in America do you think have moved into the woods, living off the land?

Administrator answers:

In Florida there are MANY MANY homeless people living in the woods and around the beaches.

These people are not all drunks or addicts. These are regular people who may have had a job loss or divorce or may have depression or other mental illness. Some are just antisocial or hiding from something. Others are older and unable to find work that would support living in a cheap apartment.

They may have a PO box for a pension check but it is a small check. Rather than live in a crappy area that is unsafe, they build a place in the woods and live that way.

Some choose to live apart from society because it so hard for them to handle how screwed up the world has become.

Some of these people live communally. They build shacks or other shelters like old abandoned cabins, caves, garden sheds.

Considering there are millions of people who live in this country,
I would guess there are a few thousand or more in the woods.

Sandra asks…

Pros and cons of living in NYC?

Is witnessing or experiencing crime part of your daily life often?

Do you feel safe walking around alone at night?

Do you feel cramped in your apartment?

Cost of living?

Administrator answers:

Goran, New York City is an expensive City to live. Renting an apartment in Manhattan does not come cheap, and at times the apartment is small. My advice, consider renting out side of Manhattan, you will find better and cheaper accomadation in the outer boroughs.

In regard to crime, New York City is no long, and I repeat, no longer the “crime capital” of the nation. The crime rate in this city has dropped to the lowest level since the NYPD began to keep track of crime stats in the 1960s. And it continues to drop every year for the last 10 to 15 years. Therefore, New York City is “the safest big city in America.”

I hope this information is very helpful.

David asks…

Why is it that we as black people see ourselves at disadvantage all the time?

If you give someone power over you than you are powerless from the start. The game is just played from a different view point, play to win not observe and except. We shouldn’t be looking for our own channels and specific black named organization (which is discrimination in itself), let’s look to be get individual who make great strides for or families and communities. The next part of the dream if you wish!

Administrator answers:

A lot of people had some good, neutral, and bad points. I just wanted to add that the field was close to being level back in the days before one race wanted to dominate over the other race in Americas past. We had power over our family, homes, towns, cities, jobs, our lives! We were even seen as equals to others in America. Then the others, wanted more. They harassed, taunted, hurt and killed us! (LINCHINGS) The not only burned down homes, churches, businesses. They burnt down entire black owned, black governed cities because we were there and living in peace and they didn’t like this. Later, after they were the dominate force in the US, people like Malcom X and Drew Ali and many others, started to get the black people to lick there wounds and become a proud people in America once more. We started taking care of ours selfs because no one else would. Those inspirational figures were permanently eliminate. Then, there were churches and liquor stores on every street corner. Then if that was not bad enough, the gov flooded the black communities with drugs and guns. What do you think the WAR ON DRUGS is really for? The drugs brought in by the airforces. Some planes have gone down, that were supposed to contain medical supplies from the countries were our War On Drugs take place, were found loaded with cocain in the remains of the plane. Some guard airforce pilots got caught in coustoms loaded with cocain on their plane. What did the gov do? They denied it and the pilots and crew were brought up on false drug charges. Some pilots and crew accidently broke the seals on the medical containers only to find cocain! After the blacks were messed up from churches, liquor stores, drugs, guns, open racism, etc… The dominate ones started no only to continue to focus on black, but gays and other undesirable groups, with drugs, and other unmentionables. Then they let the lirics go unchallanged, but before that, they blasted the rap industry for F#@k the Police and k!ll the Police, etc… But it’s ok to say F@#k your mom,
B!tch3s, H0les, The “N” word, Kill black so in so!???? All of that is ok. They bombard us with rappers and althlets with cars, money, women and then show movies and music videos with every black person styling and profiling in high dolar clothes, shoes, rims, etc… Now not all, but many blacks try to emulate this and they can’t even aford a decent apartment. Some of them try to emulate the rapper, (THEY ARE JUST ENTERTAINERS), they see on TV and mess there lives up and ad to the black stereotype. You have some good Ideas, but you are either trying too hard and or you are uninformed on a lot of issued concering the people you are trying to turn into indiviuals. I understand your cause, but many other issues needed to be addressed as well. Blacks plain the robbery, whites execute the robbery. Whites get probation, blacks get jail. Cocain! Whites able to afford it and buy and use it. Crack! Blacks able to afford this cheaper cocain knockoff, buy and use it. Black receive 5 to 15 years more prison time for it’s use because the law makers went on and are still going on a well known lie that claims that crack users are more dangerous that cocain users! Also! From ancient times, they have used the divide and conquer method on blacks and it is still openly used in some parts of the world today. Look at how many, not all, but many blacks can’t get along with each other and physical and or deadly disputes often occur.

Daniel asks…

Describe Americas incredible industrialization and urbanization from 1865 to 1940.?

Describe Americas incredible industrialization and urbanization from 1865 to 1940. What were the key elements of this change and what were the costs of such rapid industrialization

Administrator answers:

Industrialization in America involved three important developments. First, transportation was expanded. Second, electricity was effectively harnessed. Third, improvements were made to industrial processes such as improving the refining process and accelerating production. The government helped protect American manufacturers by passing a protective tariff.

The Industrial Revolution of the 19th and 20th centuries transformed urban life and gave people higher expectations for improving their standard of living. The increased number of jobs, along with technological innovations in transportation and housing construction, encouraged migration to cities. Development of railroads, streetcars, and trolleys in the 19th century enabled city boundaries to expand. People no longer had to live within walking distance of their jobs. With more choices about where to live, people tended to seek out neighbors of similar social status, if they could afford to do so. The wealthy no longer had to live in the center of the city, so they formed exclusive enclaves far from warehouses, factories, and docks. Office buildings, retail shops, and light manufacturing characterized the central business districts. Heavier industry clustered along the rivers and rail lines that brought in raw materials and shipped out finished products. Railroads also allowed goods to be brought into downtown commercial districts. By the second half of the 19th century, specialized spaces—retail districts, office blocks, manufacturing districts, and residential areas—characterized urban life.

The wealthy created separate neighborhoods for themselves by building mansions on large plots of land at the edges of the cities or in the countryside. Housing developments of similar-looking single-family or multiple-family dwellings, built by speculators, sprouted on the edges of cities. These often catered to a new middle class of white-collar employees in business and industry. The houses faced broader streets and increasingly had plots of grass in front and sometimes in the rear. New apartments were spacious and often had balconies, porches, or other amenities. By 1900 more than a third of urban dwellers owned their own homes, one of the highest rates in the world at the time.

As the middle classes left the bustle and smoke of cities, poorer people—newcomers from the countryside and immigrants—moved into the old housing stock. Landlords took advantage of the demand for housing by subdividing city houses into apartments and by building tenements, low-rent apartment buildings that were often poorly maintained and unsanitary. Immigrants gravitated to the cheap housing and to the promise of work in or near the center of cities or around factories. Now the rich lived in the suburbs and the poor near the center of cities.

The growth of cities outpaced the ability of local governments to extend clean water, garbage collection, and sewage systems into poorer areas, so conditions in cities deteriorated. Cities in the late 19th century were large, crowded, and impersonal places devoted to making money. Not surprisingly, corruption was rampant in city government and city services, in the construction industry, and among landlords and employers. High rents, low wages, and poor services produced misery in the midst of unprecedented economic growth.

The Progressive movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries succeeded in reducing some of the corruption and in establishing housing codes, public health measures, and civil service examinations in city governments. Progressive, regulatory approaches to the problems of cities expanded during the New Deal in the 1930s and during the War on Poverty in the 1960s, but cost-cutting political movements in the 1920s, 1950s, and 1980s reduced funding or eliminated many regulatory programs. As a result of local reform movements throughout the 20th century, corrupt officials were periodically voted out of office and replaced with reformers.

Lisa asks…

What is the total livingcost per month in seoul – south korea?

Administrator answers:

Apartments can vary greatly, but I have one on the cheap side $500/month in US dollars. Cable, Internet, utilities are cheap when compared to North America. I use public transportation in and around Seoul which is very good. Overall, I estimate that I spend about $1,400/month on average. Much of this is due to the fact that food prices are quite a bit higher than I’m accustomed to. But if you like the Korean food, you could get by on much less than that.
