It gave very useful information and outlined very critical components related to strokes. I like that it gave the signs and symptoms of a stroke and explained that medical attention is needed immediately because a medication could be given to lessen the effects or even reverse the potential damage caused by strokes. The only thing that could have been improved in the brochure is more detail about what to do if you have risk factors that could potentially lead to a stroke.

Values Paper In 2005 our country endured three disastrous storms. The first was Hurricane Katrina, second was Hurricane Rita, and the third was FEMA’s cover up of lethal levels of Formaldehyde found in plywood used to build trailers for storm victims. Hurricane Katrina was the costliest and one of the five deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States. It was both costly financially and mentally because we were not prepared for a natural disaster of this magnitude. It was the sixth-strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded and the third-strongest hurricane on record that made landfall in the United States.
This was the case in Sichuan, China in 2008 where severe ground shaking was the direct cause of death, injury and the catastrophic destruction of hospitals, roads and other infrastructure. An estimated 5.4 million buildings collapsed and a further 21 million were damaged. In poorer areas such as rural China, buildings are compromised despite strict regulations due to poor quality construction work and corruption meaning the correct materials is not used. Since 1976 China has had a stringent earthquake building code. Before the quake, millions of buildings in Sichuan pre-dated the 1976 code.
Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent sustained flooding of New Orleans exposed significant flaws in our national preparedness for catastrophic events and our capacity to respond to them. Emergency plans at all levels of government – including the 600-page National Response Plan that set forth the Federal government’s plan to coordinate all its departments and agencies and integrate them with State, local, and private sector partners – were put to the test and came up short. The Federal Response to Hurricane Katrina: Lessons Learned We Are Not As Prepared As We Need To Be At All Levels: Federal, State, Local, Community, And Individual.

Later Tuesday night, the hurricane had subsided, but the superstorm it unleashed caused so much chaos in about 17 other neighboring states in the country, leaving millions with power shortages and homeless now. “The biggest problem is not the first few days, but the coming months”, said Alan Rubin, an expert in nature disaster discovery. The economic impact “Sandy” has left is immense as the destruction caused is estimated to be about $20 billion, and about $10 billion in lost
9-1-1 The earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane in New Orleans, and the Demolition in San Francisco are all examples of National Disasters around the world. The human population has been affected by national disasters since the beginning of time; over billions of people have either become homeless, heart, and in most cases dead. The United Stases is the most powerful and richest country in the world yet the government and celebrities go out and help other countries spending billions of dollars on water, food, and shelter before helping people back home. We have more than 500,00 people homeless right now, that alone is a national disaster. Unfortunately, other countries aren’t so lucky; like Africa.
