  1. Your posts have raised a number of dramatic problems facing this ancient city. Well done. But if you were to track one of these topics closely in a historical analysis, you will perhaps be able to verify the extent of each these problems. This pollution study is a good example. Instead of a demonstration of discontent (by the spectacle by the students), you could analyze pollution as a historical issue, in order to shed light on the severity of the problem and the possible solutions today. In other words, you have raised an interesting topic, but you have elected to illustrate with an anecdote, rather than a historical analysis.
