Transcript: Urban Planning The Purpose This project will be very helpful to the City of Vancouver since the land is already there with buildings they can use to make a new affordable place for people to live. It will for sure help the issue of not having enough reasonable homes for people to buy. By 2020 the City of Vancouver will be turning the Olympic Park and Olympic residential places into the Southeast False Creek which will have housing for anyone to live. In the area where the Olympics were held in 2010, the City of Vancouver is transforming it into a home for 12 000 - 16 000 people and will have six million square feet of development. There will be 5000 residential units, a grocery store, community center, childcare facilities, schools, parks and more. Southeast False Creek Proposal Vancouver is densely populated and available land is limited due to the geography of the area given it is surrounded by water and mountains. As such the cost of housing is very expensive. The City of Vancouver realizes the importance of affordable housing for social responsibility. They are developing this area of the city with this in mind and also incorporating environmental responsibility into the plans. Also, the Olympic area has so much to offer and wasn't being used since the Olympics so it will definitely help people looking for reasonable living. design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi Who is involved? The City of Vancouver wishes to makes these changes to Southeast False Creek. Also, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Enviromental Design) will be helping to make False Creek a eco friendly area. The Plan http://www.sfu.ca/sustainablevancouver/sefc/design/ http://www.vancouver.ca Why would this be helpful? By - Madi LeBlanc Map of the new neighborhood : My Sources The purpose of this project is to turn Southeast False Creek into a sustainable development. It features efficient energy solutions, high performance green buildings and easy transit access.

Transcript: Bullying/Cyber-bullying Bullying is the act of abuse, discrimination and/or intimidation from one or more persons, to another group or individual. Cyber-bullying is the act of verbal abuse, discrimination and/or intimidation from one party to another, using the internet. Depression Depression is a state of deep sadness and despair. Warning signs include insomnia, decreased energy, frequent sadness, fatigue, social withdrawal, increased irritability, aggression, talk of death, lethargy, crying, loss of interest in pleasureable activites and inability to concentrate. Need 2 Website http://www.need2.ca/is a website that supports and educates viewers on suicide and depression It takes donations to help prevent future suicides. The website helps people get informed about warning signs, clues, danger signs and what you can do to help. Brandon Teena After being raped as a young female child, Brandon went into a slight depression and started to dress, act and introduce himself as a male. He became interested in a sex change. Many years later, his two friends, Tom Nissen and John L. Lotter, found this out, then raped and murdered him. It shows that being harassed can lead to depression and that people discriminate against all kinds of people. Megan Meier Megan Meier killed herself on October 16, 2006 after being harassed on the internet. A middle-aged woman, Lori Drew and her employee created a fake Myspace account of a boy named Josh, who started a relationship online with Megan. They created the account to find out what Megan was saying about Lori's daughter, who had nothing to do with the account. When "Josh" broke up with Megan, she hung herself. Perfect example of cyber-bullying. It shows how much bullying through the internet can affect someone, and can lead to suicide. Facebook Facebook has a wide variety of security features that make it less likely for bullying to occur. New features include things like a "social reporting" tool and a "family safety centre." They can certainly help those in need of it, but it can't stop cyber-bullying 100%. Guidelines If you're using the internet, use it for your own pleasure, not anyone else's pain. Treat everyone on the internet how you would want to be treated on the internet or in person. If someone is cyber-bullying you, make it stop by reporting them. Preventing To prevent bullying and depression we could do things like: Stand up for others being put-down. Stop doing it ourselves. Talk it out. Report it. Seek help.
