    Case Study: Gambias Youthful Population. What are the positive and negative impacts?

    4 star(s)

    As many children die at an early age, parents tend to have a large number of children to help with daily tasks, to bring a higher income to the family and to look after the parents when they reach ill health. Gambia has a high birth rate of 40 per 1000 people because of this and in 2003, the average fertility rate was 5.13. What are the positive and negative impacts? Due the high birth rate, falling infant mortality rate and improvements in the level of healthcare available, the population has been increasing rapidly.

    Managing Road Traffic in Singapore

    4 star(s)

    They had the option to take public transport into the city which were mostly located near the car parks. However, the Park and Ride Scheme was not very successful. This can be shown through the 585 parking lots used out of the 7700 created, which clearly shows that most people would enter the CBD area early or just take public transport.This also shows that the Park and Ride Scheme was not very popular amongst the people. Most drivers found it not worthwhile to leave their vehicle parked outside the city and pay for the parking fees.

    Pedestrian Counts.

    4 star(s)

    For instance the reading recorded on Market road, showing 419 people passing that point in ten minutes was most probably due to the famous 'Cambridge Market' which lies there. The highest reading of 465 on the corner of St Andrews street was again due to the presence of a great many shops and services. I also note that the time when these readings were taken is also important. The fact that they were taken at 11:30am on a Wednesday morning is crucial as this would be one of the times where the highest density of people would be shopping and working in offices.

    I am studying both the positive and negative impacts of tourism on the Lake District

    4 star(s)

    This gives workers more money to spend and so more local shops open and more jobs are created and so on and so on. But as well as positive impacts, there are also many negative impacts of tourism. The first is footpath erosion. This occurs when people (tourists in this case) are walking along a footpath, as they do they wear away the vegetation which loosens the soil and exposes the soil to the elements. Then when it rains the footpath becomes muddy and so people veer to the edges of the footpath to avoid the mud.

    Chinas One Child Policy: The good, the bad, and the ugly

    4 star(s)

    Couples have to apply to be married and to have a child. Parents who have only one child get a "one-child glory certificate," which entitles them to economic benefits such as an extra month's salary every year until the child is 14, free education, priority housing and family benefits. Among the other benefits for one child families are higher wages, interest-free loans, retirement funds, cheap fertilizer and better health care. Women who delay marriage until after they are 25 receive benefits such as an extended maternity leave when they finally get pregnant.

    Socio-economic and political impacts of climate change in Africa

    4 star(s)

    Balling, 1991, with Hulme and Kelly, 1993). Whatever the cause of the warming trend, it provides one benchmark against which we can judge the projections of future climate warming for Africa' All that one needs to look at is the Annual rainfall during the mosts recent three decades to see that there has been around 20 to 40 percent less than was expected around the 1960's. Take extreme years such as 1984 and 1990 where rainfall levels have dropped below 50 percent of what is normally expected.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare two seaside towns that I visited in March 2003. The two towns, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on the-Naze can be located side by side on the east coast of Britain.

    "My results for the town centre EQA shows that my opinion for the two towns was very different from one another. But, for the seafront EQA the results show that I don't really have an opinion on either of the two towns. This has affected my conclusion as it helps to disprove one of my predictions. Perhaps the reason for this is that I didn't try hard enough to differentiate between the two seafronts at the time of the trip. If I had tried to be more self-convincing about how I did the marking, I would have acquired better and more reliable results. I could improve my methods by being more accurate about my opinions and the results that I got. 1"

  • The aim of this project is to identify and discuss relevant Synergies, Dependencies, Vulnerabilities and Conflicts between Air Traffic Services and Airport Operations.

    "Conclusion The interface between ATS and AO is a vital part of the Aviation System. Both these elements aim to promote safe and efficient air transportation. AO focus upon the transition of passengers and cargo to and from aircraft and airport whereas ATS focus upon the transition of aircraft between airports. Air travel has increased rapidly during the past 30 years and will continue to do so. Air traffic control systems and airport operations have increased their role in the system and both most work effectively to ensure air travel safety. Airport capacity will continue to expand to accommodate for airport operations and aircraft and so the air traffic control system has to be efficient in dealing with the rise of movements.

  • Compare the jobs of property owners and the change in pricing of properties over the years.

    "This graph shows the ranges in prices of different kinds of properties. Quite obviously, we see that house have a greater average price than any of the other kinds. The results from Terrace properties show a big range. These results don't seem very reliable - as there are only 2 results, which seem to contradict each other. Suites, quite obviously are quite expensive - as much as some of the houses. However, again there is one record to draw a conclusion from which devalues its strength of reliability. This is the same with the "Apartment" result, which lies at about the pricing. "Flats" and "Flat/Block" are averagely priced lowest in relationship to the other properties. These results are quite accurate, as they are taken from many different areas around London - however, I know that flats can range greatly in price - which mostly contradicts my results."
