LEARN9 Universal Tag Code For Emergency Reporting Proposal

"This is a story like nothing else. If a severe pandemic flu strikes, it’s going to be all around us, all the time. We’re not going to be able to go in and out" Maggie Fox, Editor, Health and Science, Reuters

From this exercise, I've learned something new ~ that an outbreak can start in one country and not another country at the same time because it is in a different season (Spring one place, Winter another) and that it is imperative other countries about to enter the same season know what's happening.

I also realized that there isn't a universal tag that I'm aware of for reporting emergencies.

Scientists need to know, Health Authorities need to know, Emergency Responders need to know and Governments need to know in all countries but there doesn't seem to be a formalized way, currently news feeds are monitored for keywords, but what if there was a universal tag code, wouldn't that make it easier?

Reuters use a 'boilerplate' for their reporters to report in an emergency why don't citizens?

The tag could be something like:
9er0100 is 9TSCCCC means Emergency Type Severity CountryCode

E = universal symbol for emergency
T = E for earthquake, O for outbreak, etc
S = R (Red) High, Y (Yellow) OnWatch, G (Green) All Clear
C = Numeric number for each country

We have become accustomed to using tags now but if everyone knew their emergency tag code then it would work to quickly sort out and get the information quickly into the hands of the right people.

public servants

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
