UAE warns citizens of London dangers

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has advised its citizens to avoid certain «dangerous areas» in central London. The UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released a map highlighting areas they deem to be crime hotspots. Most of the areas are around London’s prestigious shopping area in the West End, the upmarket street Piccadilly, and the entertainment district Soho. A statement on the ministry’s website urged citizens to avoid areas, «where pickpocketing, fraud and theft are frequent and where it is not advisable to live». The warning follows several attacks on Emiratis in London earlier this year. One incident saw three sisters attacked in their hotel room by a hammer-wielding burglar.

Describe the graph

Model answer:

Over the past fifty years, there has been significant variation in the percentage of young people in the UK who choose to eat a vegetarian diet.

In 1960, only a small percentage of adolescents (about 1 percent) were vegetarian. There was then a steep increase until 1978, when over 15 per cent were following a vegetarian diet. Thereafter, the percentage fell steadily until 1990 and then fluctuated for a decade. It reached a low point of just 4 per cent in 1996. It has risen gradually since 2000 and is expected to continue to do so over the next few years. After reaching a high point in around 2015, it is projected to decline again and possibly level off by the decade’s end.

Overall, the graph shows two main periods of interest in vegetarianism among young people in the UK : one peaking around 1978 and the second projected to peak approximately forty years later, in 2015.

7 principles for building better cities

So, let me add to the complexity of the situation we find ourselves in. At the same time that we’re solving for climate change, we’re going to be building cities for three billion people. That’s a doubling of the urban environment. If we don’t get that right, I’m not sure all the climate solutions in the world will save mankind, because so much depends on how we shape our cities: not just environmental impacts, but our social well-being, our economic vitality, our sense of community and connectedness.
