My friends and I often discuses how we would handle a zombie apocalypse, this is kind of similar. the first thing would be to secure a location and inventory current recourses. The next step is to evaluate the environment / infected, how safe is it and who can we help. Then we collect additional recourses, which includes people with different skills, medical, protection, agriculture, and so on. then we go to work.

When it comes to crisis communication, there was one insight that I had never thought of. The insight "Coming to Terms With Uncertainty" was very interesting to me, as I had never considered this. It would obviously be difficult for a journalist to inform or warn the public about a crisis if there is still uncertainty concerning the crisis. It would be especially difficult if the crisis was something that there was very little research about, as it would not be easy to give the public advice…

Pandemic Flu Call to Action

I have organized teachers from across the world to volunteer their times as virtual teachers for children who are suffering from the Pandemic Flu. These teachers will continue with the children's grade level curriculum and teach them via video feed. This action will allow students to stay current in their schooling while recovering. The last thing a child needs is to be sick and have the added stress knowing the are getting behind in their school work with each passing day of being sick. The…

How do People react in a Pandemic?

What I found really surprising is the statement of Peter Sandman, Risk Communication Consultant. He says that if people become aware of a risk, denial is a way bigger problem than panic. To be honest, I always thought that overreactions to a difficult situation and the panic of the people can cause the biggest problems. What Peter Sandman says is that the overreactions and fear in a crisis are very important to protect people. Sandman argues that people who have gone through such a reaction…

A communication platform for people in need and voluntary civilians

If a pandemic flu would reach Nuremberg and I would have been asked to organize a group of people who can help, I would create an online platform for the communication between voluntary helpers and people who are in need of them.

If a pandemic flu begins to spread over a community or a country it is important try to keep the number of new infections to a minimum. But there is one problem: Infected people still need to leave their homes in order to get food, medicine and other important…

Right signal to the report...

You’re sending signals when you report, and precisely because most people don’t have a technical vocabulary, the signals matter significantly more than words and numbers.

I have so often noticed how the media have spread distorted information. Since there was it's a small dispute between the neighbors and the media see this as a chance to…

Crisis Networking_09

I am very interested in phenomena like human stampedes as an act of mass impulse among a crowd of people in which the crowd collectively begins running with no clear direction or purpose for example during an offical sporting or music event. So I decided for the fourth secret "Managing Panic in a Pandemic".

Furthermore it's very interesting for me how journalists react during a pandemic and how they publish information of the government to the general population. In…

I would call two groups of doctors, who can help me to teach the non-doctors how they can help the ill people.

The first group of doctors show them what´s to do when a sick person come. They must find out whats his problem and then they can help especially. (How they make an injection or which medicament for which disease)

So we can make a video with the instruction or they can call the doctors with skype and show the problems.

The other group of doctors search for a serum to…

I choose the secret “Managing Panic in a Pandemic”

I think it's important that journalists deal cautiously with the word “panic”, and educate the citizens. They have a big responsibility.

“Journalists play a key role helping government manage fear in the general population during a disaster, says epidemiologist Dori Reissman, a commander with the United States Public Health Service. In this section, Reissman explains how the government uses insights from behavioral and social…

Covering risk

The most interesting and important fact of these five is the one called "covering the risk"

I was really surprised by the low correlation between how much harm that hazard does and how upset people get about it. That means that sometimes there is a huge panic about something that isn't worth it. And the awarness of big hazards is sometimes too low. That means that the coorelation between those two facts should be pushed to get higher. I think it is important to create a high rate of how…

GUEM MISSION 9: IMAGINE: What non-doctors can do in time of pandemic.

When a Pandemic strikes sometimes we need everyones participation, not only doctors. We need to spread information and help others reach safety. My idea would be to create a network of people with specific tasks to ensure the safety of people during a pandemic. They would people of who know each other, perhaps neighbors, members of a church, etc. They would be people with specific knowledge of certain areas.

For example:

My friend Lisa works directly with American Red… Continue

Imagine 9

It's 2011 and the latest pandemic flu has hit South Africa. As per usual the children are the ones most vulnerable to the illness which means thousands of children are missing out on their schooling around the country. Fortunately we have managed to put the dark site which was developed a year ago into action to ensure that these children don't fall behind in class and further there educations in the long term. I have contacted schools around the country and hundreds of teachers have agreed to… Continue

Learn 9

I found that 'managing panic in a pandemic' was the most prevalent insight within the 'five secrets of Crisis Communication' and in particular the idea that public trust is a big issue. I feel these factors are very important as one of the worst things to happen in a crisis is wide spread panic as it can force people to act in an irrational manner which may lead to unecessary violence. Thus, population panic levels must be kept low during a crisis and the… Continue

The valley of the Mayo River in Peru was isolated from the rest of the country until the 1970s, when construction of the Carretera Marginal trunk road gave access. A wave

of spontaneous settlers from the highlands and the coast then came into

the valley, increasing the population five-fold. Under such a dramatic

event, the locals became a disadvantaged minority in their own

traditional territory. Providing legal land titles to…

Crisis Networking: Covering Risk

Peter Sandman , an expert in risk communication explains why risk truly has two elements - hazard and outrage - and why understanding them both is crucial to crisis communication as well as pandemic journalism.

He said that : Risk = hazard + outrage.

That is, the risk that kills people and the risk that upset people are completely different. If you know a risk is deadly, that tells you almost nothing about whether it is upsetting. If…

Learn 9, Crisis Communication

When I read the title, I thought, "Awesome, I got this one!". I've got so much to say about crisis communication, as I experienced firsthand what happens when it is deficient or breaks down after the tsunami in Thailand and Hurricane Katrina.

Then I read the article on the five secrets of crisis communication, and it was both boring and just about how irresponsibly the press inflate the risk of pandemics and cause panics. Which is obvious, and not what I can offer any insight…

Oil Spill

I tried to set up one of the google site templates but I had difficulty with logging in and making a new account. So my dark spot would be over oil spills, such as the one that recently happened. Though they might not happen often when they do occurr the results can be devestating. My site would include information on how to protect yourself and your loved ones also keep an update on if the spill has traveled and where it is flowing. It will inform people on where they could go to help the… Continue

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
