Green City

Transcript: The End Information on what makes a city green efficient The tasks that we had to complete had some very aggravating parts with them, but we managed to complete them successfully. Here is an example of one of these successes, when we made Green City turn on our 3rd try. success Renewable resources in Avon are wind energy, solar energy, biogas energy, biomass energy, and Cellulosic Ethanol energy. Nonrenewable resources in Avon are coal, natural gas, nuclear, and petroleum. To save energy you can change to compact fluorescent light bulbs, reduce air conditioning usage in the summer and heating usage in the winter, change habits, like turning off the lights when you leave a room, reduce, reuse, & recycle. Avon trash is hauled by Republic Services, Inc. and taken to a transfer station, an Incinerator, landfill, or recylcing center. Our group solved the problems and successfully completed the tasks by communicating, respecting everyone's ideas, encouraging each other, having specific roles, and working together. The difficulties did we encountered were getting the right measurements to get the robot to move in the right direction or spot and also, to follow the path we wanted to. One of our first programs/attempts was task two, which was getting green city to activate. In this task we first weren't able to get the correct measurements and angles so we weren't able to activate green city . In our successful attempt/ program we were able to activate Green City because we got the right measurements We learned that computer programming/programming with our robot was very difficult but we managed to learn to program the robot b working together and using our past knowledge. Problem solving is an extremely important quality to have as students as well as in the real word. We learned about problem solving in various issues we encountered such as not getting the correct measurements or having manual issues, such as sensor problems. In the picture can see our fabulous group, also known as the one and only Quad Squad. You can see our lovely prezi producer, Michelle (Marshmichello), our robot engineer and computer programer Sam (Pretty, Pretty, Princess), our Technical writer Melanie (Malone), our team manger Brooklyn (Cookie), and last but not least robot number 3... BURTHA! Picture Time! Yet another successes. All these challenges we completed were a little tricky due to all the difficulties we had such as in the next slide, but lets just focus on the good times. Like I said unfortunately, not every task was as easy. Unsuccessfully Success Green City By: Michelle W, Brooklyn W, Melaine N, & Sam S A problem with nonrenewable resources that eventually it will run out. This is a problem because some renewable resources are very important such as gas. One disadvantage with renewable energy is that it is difficult to generate the quantities of electricity that are as large as those produced by traditional fossil fuel generators. This may mean that we need to reduce the amount of energy we use or simply build more energy facilities. It also indicates that the best solution to our energy problems may be to have a balance of many different power sources. Challenges From Green City

Transcript: Next, Porter revealed that the cluster-based economy capable of encouraging competitiveness in three ways, namely: 1. By increasing the productivity of the industry in the area. 2. By encouraging the creation of new innovations. 3. By encouraging the strengthening of the cluster itself. (Porter, Michael E., Clusters and the New Economics of Competition, Harvard Business Review, 1998). Most references to the origin of industrial districts go back to the economist Alfred Marshall. Marshall expressed his view that when the industry is in a particular geographic region, the handling of the machines and materials will be much easier to do. Marshall also said the positive impact (positive externalities) of industries are concentrated in one area, among others: 1. The existence of knowledge spillover between the existing industries. 2. Input unspecialized of supporting industries. 3. The labor competitiveness (competitive). (Marshall, A, Principles of Economics, 8th ed., 1920). It could be said that the concept introduced by Marshall is closer to the concept of industrial zones or industrial district. Industry cluster consists of: Alfred Marshal The development of the cluster definition starting from a study of the success stories in Northern Italy in the 1980s encouraged the use of terminology industrial district given by Marshall (1920). The definition of cluster is simply a collection of companies sectoral and spatially dominated by one sector. design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi In principle, there are three pillars that are the foundation for cluster-based economy, namely: 1. The geographic area (geographical area). This is a specific area that became the center of activity. 2. Creation of value (value creation). In a cluster composed of various business sectors and industries, each of which create value in the production of goods and / or services they offer. 3. Business environment (business environment). The business environment has a significant influence in shaping the relationship between industry, labor and local government institutions. The existence of the cluster will give more strength to the creation of a competitive business environment. Perspective Michael E. Porter. According to Porter, a cluster-based economy is a concentrated area where there are companies and institutions are interlinked in a particular field. Porter confirms that the keywords in the development of the cluster is the competition (competition). Competition, he said is very dependent on productivity; while productivity lies in the ability of the industry to create products and / or services. Humphrey and Schmitz (1995) The Success of Northern Italy In 1995 the definition of cluster started distinguished from the industrial district, as seen at the time of Humphrey and Schmitz (1995) clarifying the concept of collective efficiency. Cluster is defined as a gathering of the company and sectoral goegrafis. By association, the cluster will benefit from external economies. While the industrial district will arise if the cluster develops more than specialization and division of labor between companies with the advent of the collaboration between the agents of the local economy in the region, and increasing local production capacity and sometimes the innovation capacity also increased (Rabellotti, 1995), as well as the emergence of a strong sectoral associations. Based on the success of the phenomenon of Northern Italy, defined the key characteristics of clusters or industrial districts (Schmitz and Musyck, 1993) as follows: (1) Dominated by small businesses who move in the same sector (specialization in sectors) or sector related; (2) Collaboration between businesses adjacent to the sharing of equipment, information, skilled labor, and so forth; (3) These companies are competing to be based on the quality of the product rather than lowering the cost of production, including wages; (4) Employers and workers have a long history on the site. This facilitates mutual trust in the good relations between small enterprises, between workers and skilled labor; (5) Employers are well organized and actively participate in self-organization; (6) There are local and regional governments are actively supporting the development of local or regional industry cluster. 1.

Green city

Transcript: More than half of the world’s population lives in cities, a trend that is rapidly accelerating, especially in developing countries. In the USA, urban areas are merging into huge megalopitan areas, especially along interstate highways. Cities require and use large quantities of energy and materials, metabolizing them and generating large quantities of waste products and pollutants, resulting in unsustainable environments that adversely affect ecological integrity and diversity and human health and well-being. As many city dwellers are disconnected from the natural world, it has even been suggested that a new species “homo urbanus” is emerging. Vancouver has been ranked one of the most livable cities in the world for more than a decade. As of 2010, Vancouver has been ranked as having the 4th highest quality of living of any city on Earth. The Public bike share system: The City is exploring the feasibility of a privately owned and operated public bike share system, a network of shared bicycles available for short-term use for a fee. Bike sharing provides convenient, comfortable, flexible, and affordable cycling options to residents and visitors. In addition to providing people with a healthy transportation option, public bike shares have been shown to: Extend the reach of transit and walking trips, reduce the need for personal vehicle trips and Trigger greater interest in cycling, and increase cycling ridership.
