"When people initially become aware of a risk, they overreact. They have a temporary short-term overreaction. People pause what they're doing, become hyper-vigilant, check out the environment more carefully than they normally would and—this is perhaps the most important characteristic of the adjustment reaction—they take precautions that may be excessive, may be inappropriate, and are certainly premature."
I thought this was interesting. It exactly what happened to my husband I heard a… Continue

SO in the future we could be self reliant with food. Each neighborhood could provide different produce. ANd we could trade with other neighborhoods. I know this is kind of like going back in time instead of forward but I think we should take from the past to make the future better. I will post a picture later of my group of our bartering system.

It would be cool if each person could choose what community they wanted to help. Then by city and possibly start something more local. Local problems for the area they are in might cause them to feel more interested in helping and like thhey ca actually make a difference.

I joined a group of 5 in my class and we decided to do a bartering system. Each person wrote down their skill that they had then we each traded our different skills. I sing so I could sing at someones birthday or event in exchange for them helping me fix my computer.

When i firt read this mission i autiatically started thinking of currencies. Using different currenicies. BUt then after doing some research I saw that a bartering system would work as well. Using a bartering system to trade our different skills is my idea.

It would be great if with this program you could type in your name in a disaster sitution and your status, so that people worried about you can easily type your name in and see where you are and your status. Alive, safe, healthy, unijured, injured, need help, tramped, and so on. Then these statuses could be filtered and those that need help along witht their location can be forwarded to rescue teams.

I know for this area the scare of a earth quake is pretty relevant. The first thing after an earth quake happens, if you survive, i would wonder about my husband and family.
Eathquakes scare a great many people. They unpredictable, all we know is one is supposed to happen, but you have no idea where you will or who will be with you. scary.

It will be fun because everyone can represent their culture by dressing to represent the culture, or makeing tables or booths to respresent the culture but everyone will be showcasing their cultures talents while focusing on… Continue

I decided to write about a situation I read about in the newspaper today. So far in Haiti, 5,000 people have died from Ch***ra. This is an infection to the small instenstine and if not treated can cause death. It causes your body to release more water in the stool and create severe diarrhea, which leads to loss of bodily fluids. It occurs when the water being drinking is contaminated or untreated. Unfortuantle in Haiti this is very common. But there is a group trying to make a… Continue

OK so you know how people work out.... Well why not use some sort of machine that is powered by us while we are working out? Lets say you are going to go for your morning run you shoes could have something inside them that everytime you pound the pavement it creates energy, the same with a bicylce. Everytime you go ride you bike it create energy that you can use later to power your home. This would encourage people to work out and create a healthier society.

I am at my home with my husband and children and we are eating dinner together. I imagine that by then things will have changed alot. I hope to see more local food being bought and that we can be less dependant on super markets and have our own gardens or local grower we can purchase from. The food would be from our garden or local growers. I went to my neighbors and paid her for her tomatoes and she paid me for my potatoes. I prepared the meal. The dish would be called Old fashioned (fill in… Continue

So when i think about helping out it gets hard. Everytime I am walking around town, and am asked for money I hesitate because of my doubt that they will actually use the money to buy food. Instead I try to buy the operson food. But this week for my church I was fasting so I thought I could talk about my experience.
Like i said I was fasting for my church. There are many different ways to fast you can fast from things like tv or your phone or from food. I chose food. So for 6 days I ate… Continue
