...Community Profile Presentation ETH/316 Introduction Factors such as the physical environment, social communication, diversity, population, technology, social inequality, and social efforts are what ultimately lead to change within communities. They can determine how stable communities are, potential growth, and accomplishments that communities have succeeded in. Each community has its own profile, and within each community all people have social roles in which they play. Roles are significant components within a community, and they contribute to stability by enabling its members to interact and build relationships on different levels throughout the community. Diversity within population amongst a community is what also helps a community to thrive and surface new ideas, which is beneficial to a community. People in a community that bring about change can be a friend, employee, student, or anyone; there is no one specific person who can build a community by his/her self; it is community efforts. This presentation will discuss the profile of a place called Sims City, and all about this little city that makes it worth living in its community. This is a diverse community of different ethnicities with different religious beliefs. There are 144 members within this community who vary from public administrators to homemakers, and they all interact and socialize amongst various locations within the Sims City community. All of these members help this......

...humans essentially want. Basically, deontology is “the means justify the ends” (Kamm, 2007). Personal Example In 2010, I was actively involved in a situation in which my hometown of Georgia was faced with a budget cut in the school system that would require the elementary school that my grandchildren went since they started going to school, would be closing down, and students to be bused to another school. Looking at it logically, we can find both pro and con arguments: Pro Closure: • Tax revenues from the area do not support the school remaining open for all grades • There is still a school, still community involvement, and still a presence; only a few grades with very few students were affected. (We met with City Council to keep the grade school open) Anti-Closure: • Community taxes should remain funding community systems • Commute is too long, which can and will disrupt family work life Conclusion Although all of the ethical theories attempt to follow the ethical principles in order to be applicable and valid by themselves, each theory falls short with complex flaws and failings. However, these ethical theories can be used in combination in order to obtain the most ethically correct answer possible for each scenario. For example, a utilitarian may use the casuistic theory and compare similar situations to his real life situation in order to determine the choice that will benefit the most people. The......

...WK 2: Community Profile In a community there lives a diverse group of people. These people are what make a community a home or a neighborhood. This neighborhood needs to be respected and protected in order for people to thrive and carry-on with their everyday lives. My community is made up families raising their children and just going with everyday life. We take pride in living for our children. Sports and education is big in the community, during school and during the summer months as well. When the adults are not working they take their leisure time going to basketball games on Friday nights during the fall or baseball games during the summer. Also during the summer months my community has a farmers market. The farmers market supports local farmers and also brings other small businesses out. The farmers market always brings out the community and brings people together. It is also a great way to contribute to small businesses and give back. Some other wonderful, fun things we have during the summer months that brings the community together are car shows, a day in the park and the jubilee. A reason we can have these things is because of the workforce in the community. The workforce ranges from industry to clerical to fast food to medical. We are very diverse in what needs to be done. The community used to be mostly industrial but a lot of factories were shutdown due to the economy. The community still has a couple of bigger industrial factories that are in production but...

I was born and raised in phoenix Arizona and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

This city is filled with multiple types of nationalities, ethnic groups, cultures, and religions. History Phoenix was official recognized on May 4, 1868.

Tofino Community Profile

...Assignment #2: Tofino Community Paper The community that will be addressed throughout this report is Tofino, British Columbia. The general interest in this community arose from various trips there. During the most recent visit I began simply admiring the Tofino resident’s way of life. Simply put, Tofino is a one of a kind community from my point of view. INTRODUCTION Tofino is a relatively small community compared to other settlements on Vancouver Island. The population in 2006 was 1,655, according to Statistics Canada. Also Tofino’s population density is 157.1 people/km2. This statistic may seem high relative to the community’s total permanent population, but Tofino’s land area is only 10.54km2. Progressing, Tofino’s major economic bases have changed significantly over time. During the 60s and 70s Tofino’s main industries were commercial fishing and industrial logging, but with various policy changes Tofino’s main industry has changed. Currently their main economic activity is tourism. More specifically, ecotourism, this includes such activities as wildlife watching, beach exploration, ocean fishing, hiking and walking, floatplane tours, surfing, and sea kayaking (Niwand, 2008). Furthermore, Tofino’s settlement structure resembles that of a common developing region shore-based community. There are many small docks lining the settlement’s limits. Also because Tofino is spatially small, the central business district encompasses the various roads directly attached to......

Community Profiles: Social Responsibilities

...Community Profiles: Social Responsibilities Johnny Vega University of Phoenix ETH316 Charles Daniels 19June 2014 Community Profiles: Social Responsibilities Social responsibilities are essential for community residents, whether in rural, suburban, or urban venues. Although the prevailing community and individual ethics and moral obligations are identified, the greater good to the communities is demonstrated through a primary theme; individual practices addressing social responsibilities within the communities that strengthen an ethical and moral lens. Our comparative analysis will address critical thinking processes defining conceivable responsibilities of the individuals to the communities, communities’ responsibilities to the individuals, and effects of social responsibilities on the communities. We will focus on the diverse Texas communities of the Shady Mountain sub-division of Leander (rural), the Shadow Glen sub-division of Manor (suburban), and the Kyle neighborhood (urban) (City of Kyle, n.d. and ShadowGlen HOA, 2014 and United States Census Bureau, 2010).

Social responsibility comes from the belief that people, governments, and organizations have a responsibility to the greater welfare of society. What each person determines to be socially responsible, however, is subject to personal ideals and beliefs.

...Community Profile Presentation ETH/ 316 May 21, 2012 Introduction: Diversity in Communities Diversity is what makes everybody different and helps people to learn from one another. Imagine if everybody was the same and every community did things in the exact same way – life around the world would be boring. Diversity in communities brings new ideas and creativity to help enhance unity among the people who make up the community. According to Boylan (2009), diversity makes a community stronger and happier in the essences that change is good and resources that are more possible are created overtime. All communities have their own way of conducting business, they have their own rules and regulations and most importantly, the people of the community help to keep their community safe, clean and united. However, when conducting a group study it was discovered that most communities have the same wants, needs and values. To illustrate the diversity between communities we will compare five different community profiles prepared by the members of Team C and use these profiles to discuss the similarities, differences and social responsibility of each community. The purpose of this paper is to reveal that communities are very different yet very much the same. Similarities among the Communities Each member in Team C submitted information about their particular community, which included the population size, information about employment among residents and intricate......

Within this community, there are two school districts and a fire department. Antelope consists of mostly white-collar workers. There are also blue-collar workers. Many of the families are double-income families, although there are still quite a few single-income families. The people of the community are fairly friendly but the city is not so small that everyone knows your business. Many of the residents work with either technology or construction. Antelope does not house many big businesses so many of the residents commute to Sacramento. The average annual household income is $75,000 to $120,000. Antelope is a sports community and a majority of children participate in the local sports. Many families interact during these team sports.
