B. Sentinel City is a vertical community comprised of 4 neighborhoods with a total population of 663,862. The population statistics of age groups entail 7.1% under the age five, 16.9% under eighteen, and over the age of 65 is 10.3%. The percentage of race is as follows: 71.5% white, 22% Hispanic, 13.1% black. The median household income is $522,152.00 with an average of 18% below the poverty level. The first neighborhood is Nightingale Square with a population of 103,974 people. The average income for this neighborhood is $269,550.00 with an average of 0.7% of individuals non-insured. The second neighborhood is Acer Tech Center with a population of 168,390 people. The average income is $166,300.00 with an average 1.5% of residences non-insured. The third neighborhood is Casper Park District with population of 352,643 and an average income per household of $80,134.00 and 22.7% of non-insured residences. The final neighborhood is Industrial Heights with a population of 38,855, an average income per household of $24,672 and 37.5% non-insured. Visual inspection of the neighborhoods and safety assessment found slightly different hazards throughout as well as some neighborhoods with the same hazards but only in different quantities. The assessment I found in Nightingale Square consisted of garbage on streets with rats, surprisingly enough because the town is livelier and cleaner than the other three. There is one park with structured activities and citizens walking around town on decent sidewalks. The people are able to get around town via car or the bus system reaching their destinations. The public Health Department is located in this town and open for business. A wheelchair bound citizen and an individual on a cane with his arm in a sling can be seen outside of the business. It appears that they have just visited or are heading there for an appointment.

Acer Tech Center neighborhood appears cleaner than the last two neighborhoods and as you travel further into town the atmosphere changes into a business district. There is noticeably no garbage on the streets and more citizens walking about. They are mostly in business attire and appear to be focused on reaching their destination rather than milling about. In this district, there are outdoor markets and vendors where employees can grab a quick lunch before seemingly going back to work. City Hall is located in this district with picketers on lawn holding signs and chanting “Tax the Rich!” Billboards advertising for Radio and Television ads appear as you leave this district. Observations of Casper Park District is the third town you travel to. As you get further into the neighborhood the atmosphere changes from friendly to depressing. The town is in disrepair with buildings that are littered with graffiti and some of these buildings have windows boarded up. There are condemned buildings and barricades throughout. Garbage has been thrown on the sidewalks and stray dogs are running loose in the area.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
