Today we’ll examine the role that private transportation—namely, the automobile—plays in city planning.
A number of sociologists blame the automobile for the decline of the downtown areas of major cities. In the 1950’s and 1960’s the automobile made it possible to work in the city and yet live in the suburbs many miles away. Shopping patterns changed; instead of patronizing downtown stores, people in the suburbs went to large shopping malls outside the city and closer to the home. Merchants in the city failed, and their stores closed.
Downtown shopping areas became deserted. In recent years there’s been a rebirth of the downtown area, as many suburbanites have moved back to the city. They’ve done this, of course, to avoid highways clogged with commuters from the suburbs. I’ve chosen this particular city planning problem—our dependence on private transportation—to discuss in groups. I’m hoping you all will come up with some innovative solutions. Oh, and don’t approach the problem from a purely sociological perspective; try to take into account environmental and economic issues as well.

There are many forms of fighting bare-fisted. Both wrestling and boxing were probably started in(36)ancient Greece and Rome although modern boxing is(37)believed to have started in England.
Other fighting skills were (38)developed for defense against strong enemies. One story (39)goes that long ago some people of South India (40)practiced a form of fighting that required more skill than strength. They made use of strength and the (41)careless movements of the enemies to defeat them. In this way an (42)expert with nothing in hand could (43)easily defeat several enemies with spears in hand.
(44)It is said that this kind of fighting skill was first introduced to Shaolin Temple in Henan Province in China. After studying and copying the fighting movements of certain animals these people in the temple made great improvement on the Indian’s skill. In each country some changes were made. (45)As a result, there are now lots of different fighting skills and techniques like the Chinese Taiji Quan, the Japanese judo and many others.
Today, the system of fighting bare-fisted in Asia has spread out over the world. (46)Fortunately, only a few people, like members of the police force and the army use this skill to fight their enemies when necessary. Most of these skills are now sports and people do them just for fun.
