By taxing sugary drinks, the city hopes to inspire more people to select healthier options, such as water. The aim of the research was to evaluate the state of community drinking water fountains and figure out if there is a distinction in access to fresh, operating drinking fountains based on racial or economic components. Through information gathered by a mobile GPS app, experts were able to establish the condition of active water fountains in Berkley. Demographic data on race and earnings was then assembled using the US Census database. The researchers looked to use both data sets to figure out if demographics were connected to drinking water fountain access.

While the majority of the fountains were in working order, an alarming quantity were found to be in a bad state of repairs.

The kouroi started to be life-sized beginning in 650 BC.
