  Title: INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND HUMAN POPULATION HISTORY , By: Dobson, Andrew P
The population of Athens was only around 155,000 at the time of the plague; therefore, if the plague was an early outbreak of measles, the small size of the human population would have caused the disease to die out once the initial pool of susceptible individuals had been exhausted.
Largely as a result of successive epidemics of these diseases, the population of Mexico fell from 20 million to approximately 3 million in the 50 years from 1518 until 1568 and then to 1.6 million in the next 50 years.
As the percentage of the population that is immunized increases, there are linear decreases in the total incidence of the disease in the population and increasingly rapid decreases amongst the proportion of individuals not vaccinated.

  Large Urban Concentrations: a New Phenomenon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In 1975, cities with population greater than ten million, currently defined by the United Nations as megacities, were only two in the developed world and three in the developing world; in 2015, that number is expected to double in the developed world to four, but to increase to twenty-two in the developing world.
In their expansion large urban concentrations are increasingly exposed to natural hazards, from earthquakes to floods, and to the spread of communicable disease among a very concentrated human population, as well as to the interruption or destruction of the many systems on which their life depends.
However, in a large city it is easy to lose sight that the social and the machine components are projections of the individual and that the individual component of the biosoma--the human--is the ultimate raison d'etre of the city.

 ESTIMATING CITY POPULATIONS
Cities are the living creations of people and societies that are in a constant state of flux as people move into and out of the city.
Population density varies depending upon the size of families, the nature of dwellings, the amount of non-residential area within settlements, and cultural differences.
In this model the population density is low at the edge or rural areas, increases rapidly in a suburban area into the city, and decreases again near the center of the city where residences are not common.

 Chinese Texans
The Chinese, arriving in Texas just over a century ago as laborers and facing decades of exclusion laws and prejudice, were often seen as stereotypical Orientals.
The Chinese were also from one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world and came with many of the same motives and dreams as other immigrants.
Here the Chinese were employed directly by the U.S. government as "Army wards," that is, workers in support of the army efforts to gear up for World War I: laborers, carpenters, cooks, and flsmiths.

 Ethnicity and Race: American Diversity Patterms
"Americanization" of new immigrants essentially meant educating everyone in the public schools to be like the existing majority European American population.
Americans have been forced by circumstances to focus on this debate over what the country should be like in the future.
Richard Rodriguez, a leading American essayist and social commentator, believes that the debate between the multiculturalism and melting pot models is largely irrelevant because constant close contact between people of different ethnic/racial groups in the U.S. is progressively resulting in a blurring of the differences between them.

These residents may also perceive that the city is making money off of their materials and may wonder why they have to pay for this service.
Transient populations, such as students and tourists, pose special problems to cities because these populations may be difficult to track and commit to the community’s recycling program due to the limited amount of time they spend within the community.
The two largest cities in the state are Los Angeles and San Diego, which house almost 5 million of the state’s residents.

 White flight Summary
Most white families found in the early years that these suburban outposts were converted farmland, which lacked personality and services and conveniences of the cities they left, but were compelled to stay at the behest of their children, who would later spark the new urbanism of the 1990s.
As wealthier white residents abandoned the inner city neighbourhoods, they ultimately left behind increasingly poor non-white populations whose neighbourhoods rapidly deteriorated in the 1950s and especially in the 1960s, as in many cases even trash collection was halted.
Industrial towns and cities with large south Asian populations such as Oldham, Rochdale, Nelson, Blackburn and Burnley in Lancashire, Bradford, Dewsbury and Keighley in West Yorkshire, and Leicester in the Midlands also show evidence of white flight.

 Immigration: The Chinese
The first documentation of the Chinese in the U.S. begins in the 18th century, however, there have been claims stating that they were in the area now known as America at an even earlier date.
Because of laws such as the Chinese Exclusion Act, the highly imbalanced male to female ratio, and the thousands of immigrants returning back to China, the Chinese population in the U.S. fell to a lowly 62,000 people in 1920.
Although these cities were often overcrowded slum areas in the 1800's, the Chinatowns turned from crime and drug ridden places to quiet, colorful tourist attractions in the mid 1900's.

 Translation Services: Language Translation from/into English Translation
With the loosening of American immigration laws in 1952 and 1965, a second wave of Chinese immigration began.
These Chinese tended to speak fluent Mandarin Chinese often in addition to their native dialect, which in the case of the Taiwanese Americans was the Taiwanese language.
Ethnic Chinese immigration to the United States since 1965 is aided by the fact that the United States maintains separate quotas for Mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

 Immigration to the United States
More than 70 percent of all immigrants, however, entered through New York City, which came to be known as the "Golden Door." Throughout the late 1800s, most immigrants arriving in New York entered at the Castle Garden depot near the tip of Manhattan.
The newcomers helped transform American society and culture, demonstrating that diversity, as well as unity, is a source of national strength.

 Chinatown at AllExperts
In Europe, early Chinese were seamen and longshoremen; Chinatowns were established in European port cities as Chinese traders settled in the area.
Because of new ethnic Chinese immigration and the expanded palate of many contemporary cultures, the remaining American Chinese and Canadian Chinese cuisine restaurants are seen as anachronisms but remain popular and profitable.
This discrepancy is largely attirbuted to the fact that traditional Chinese customs, including lion and dragon dances, were unable to flourish during the political and social instabilities of Imperial China under rule of the Qing Dynasty and were almost eliminated completely under the communist order of the People's Republic of China under Chairman Mao Zedong.

 Adoption History: African-American Adoptions
For a good part of the twentieth century, African-American birth parents and children were simply denied adoption services by agencies because of their religion, race, or both.
In some states with large African-American populations, such as Florida and Louisiana, not a single African-American child was placed for adoption by an agency for many years running as late as the 1940s.
This trend followed other important developments, especially Native American adoption (through the Indian Adoption Project) and international adoption, in which significant numbers of children from Asian countries crossed lines of race as well as nation to become members of American families.

 PerfectCircle: Pearl Tea!
He adds milk, sugar, ice and flavored teas, such as honeydew, taro (a Chinese root) and barley embryo (which even Zhang has yet to try).
This is rather surprising considering how seriously Chinese take their tea, and that they supposedly don't like to have it with milk.
Everyone's favorite drink is "Pearl Milk Tea" which comes with lots of tapioca balls which need to be slurped up with an extra wide straw.
