How is psychology related to other sciences?
While psychology is considered a social science, it is related to many different sciences as well! First, it is considered a social science as it examines human society and social relationships. However, it is also greatly influenced by both chemistry and biology. Chemistry is included as it relates to specific chemicals throughout the body, such as dopamine, and how this can influence relationships and behaviours. This in turn is directly related to biology, as it is the study of life – including how and why certain chemicals are in our bodies! Just as many aspect of life – everything is inter-related!
What are the impacts of tourism in a city?
This question can be answered in a few parts. First, let’s think of all the aspects tourism can affect – economic, cultural, and political are a few that come to mind. Diving deeper, we can easily understand that tourism brings in money to a city or destination. When a traveler spends money in a shop, that shop keeper earns a living. He then can turn around and support other stores, such as grocery stores, clothing, entertainment, etc. with the money that he has earned. Therefore, the economic impact is not only on the person directly interacting with the tourists. Second, a cultural impact can be seen with tourism. With an influx of people from other areas of the world, the people in the city can share their cultural and expand the knowledge of what they have. Additionally, they are able to become acquainted with the culture of those visiting. Finally, a political impact can be seen as well. While most would wonder how tourism could affect an election, it is not as simple as that. The political stance of a country could also affect the infrastructure and expansion of tourism areas. If the political culture allows for this to happen, then it could disrupt daily life for other. Not all aspects of tourism are wonderful, but there can be another discussion about that!
