Assignment 3

http://prezi.com/ox4htsj3_nry/present/?auth_key=yvpr9va&follow=6t3qrmxbktlv

My assignment, while largely crude (OCHEM test, Genetics test, and lack of prezi knowledge) outlines a Nalfok I see in the future. The basis for my presentation is a lack of government intervention. The local governments can suggest the ideas, remove legislation hampering the future efforts, and shape property taxes to promote such occurances. The essentials for my future Nalfok is the lack of parking lots, rather large parking decks, and larger sky scrapers. The Nalfok I designed is not far from a reality, provided Nalfok uses it’s infrastructure already provided. The idea is that Nalfok gradually works towards this goal, as construction or reconstruction occurs. The plans are for the most part very realistic, and would improve the city of Nalfok. Nalfok has great infrastructure, resources, and other essentials for creating such a city. There is no reason for Nalfok to experience some of the issues it currently faces. Nalfok is far superior in many aspects to many cities, it just has a few blemishes that shimmer far too much.

The Shareable Future of Cities

Below are notes from Fridays’s video, following the notes are answers to questions.

Our planet is rapidly urbanizing with 8 billion or more living in cities in the near future. We will have to generate an astonishing amount of energy. He suggests the cities we are building is an opportunity. He suggests it is not a behavioral thing, rather predestined by the set up of a city. Denser places tend to have less carbon emissions. Transportation emissions can be cut because the individuals would rather not have cars, rather they prefer to take bikes or public transportation. He talks heavily on green infrastructure and the infrastructure below some of basic technologies.

  • How many people does Steffen estimate we will have living in or near cities by mid-century?
  • Around 8 billion
  • Explain how you agree or disagree with Steffen’s point that our energy use is “predestined” rather than “behavioral”.
  • Only partially, while we may live in these less eco-friendly environments, the choice to not ride the bus is simply “American.” We want bigger, faster, and fancier items.
  • What correlation does Steffen make between a city’s density and its climate emissions?
  • The denser a city the less the carbon emissions. Stemming from the lack of travel by automobiles. More emphasis is placed on localized travel via public transportation or walking/bikes.
  • What are the “eco districts” that Steffen mentions? How you see these as feasible or unfeasible in a city like Norfolk?
  • Districts in which everything a person needs is essentially local. No I do not see this feasible in Norfolk. Although we can work to this goal, it is not truely a totally feasible premise.
  • Explain how you agree or disagree with the “threshold effect” that Steffen discusses related to transportation.
  • What does Steffen mean by the idea that, “…even space itself is turning into a service…”? Can you provide any examples that you see here in Norfolk or elsewhere?
  • Describe your understanding of Steffen’s argument that, “…it’s not about the leaves above, but the systems below…”.
  • From above everything looks great, but once the entire district or community is analyzed the true problems come out. For example looking above the webb center, it may look like the mecca of student activities, however, below the surface one may find that the dorms are the center of student life, or that the library is the center of student life.
  • Finally, overall in what way(s) do you see Steffen’s ideas working / not working here in Norfolk? Spend time with this question!
  • Honestly I am not a city dweller, although I wish the cities would build up to keep the populations from spreading out into the country, forcing it to be the suburbs. I am also not a fan of government regulations, or requirements. I am leery about global warming, yes a science major leery about global warming. I see public transportation becoming increasingly popular as Norfolk starts to transition from land based building, to aerial building, the building up of buildings. I see Norfolk becoming increasingly localized as the building phase of Norfolk turns to more cleanly educated citizens. Norfolk should continue to progress in the means of education, and better jobs as it continues to develop its massive resources, deep water ports. Also, Norfolk is home to Norfolk Southern, a rail line that is far greener than most other shipping practices. As the population grows, we can expect fuel to rise, providing a greater demand for rail systems. 

Lack of Social Media Policy

Sigma Pi Fraternity is governed by bylaws, a set of rules to run the fraternity. Two sets of bylaws exist, national, and local.

On the national level there is no social media policy. The closest bylaws relate to conduct of a brother. Bylaw 4 sections 4-5 deal with the conduct of a brother.

Section 4. Conduct Suspension.
Any brother of the Fraternity may be suspended, by way of a
majority vote of any quorum of his Chapter, or by a Chapter
Director upon his own motion, or by the Executive Director or
his designee by his own motion, from the privilege of
membership for no more than six (6) months for:
(a) Violation of the laws of any nation or subordinate
governing bodies where the Chapter or Colony is located;
(b) Violations of any of the provisions of the Constitution,
Bylaws, Grand Council Orders, rules or regulations of the
Grand Chapter, or of the local chapter, or violation of any
applicable rule of the host institution; or,
(c) Conduct that causes significant risk to Sigma Pi
Fraternity, any of its Chapters or other subordinate bodies.
Section 5. Conduct Expulsion.
Notwithstanding whether an Active brother of the Fraternity
has been previously suspended pursuant to this Bylaw, any
Active brother of the Fraternity may be expelled by the Grand
Council for:
(a) Violation of the laws of any nation or subordinate 
governing bodies;
(b) Violations of any of the provisions of the Constitution, 
Bylaws, Grand Council Orders, rules or regulations of the 
Grand Chapter, or of the local chapter; 
(c) Conduct that causes significant risk to Sigma Pi 
Fraternity, any of its Chapters or other subordinate 
bodies;
(d) Revealing the secrets of the Fraternity‟s Ritual to any
person not entitled to receive them; or,
(e) Filing, or causing to be filed, a civil lawsuit naming
the Fraternity or any of its subordinate bodies as a
defendant, in the event that such lawsuit is subsequently
ruled frivolous by a court of competent jurisdiction……….

Fraternities in general are subject to use social media for everything from management to rush–

National Twitter-

How social media can be an issue-

This girl was so drunk, she was going crazy dancing on this table and I took this picture before she took off all of her clothes..yes she got completely naked.. notice the brown spot on her underwear?

Are social media policies needed? You decide……
