Zephyr Mauibem Mr. Dendi, Mrs. Napai History, English 9 November 2012 Hurricane Katrina Imagine what it would be like if your home, your belongings, even loved ones were gone.

Countries that are more developed are usually prepared for the earthquake to occur because warnings around the area go out to make sure everyone knows that an earthquake is going to occur. However countries that are not economically developed have more problems because they don’t know when an earthquake is about to occur and they don’t have emergency plan for their earthquakes. In the USA earthquakes happen often and are mange very well because the government prepares people for earthquake. As the USA develops more over the years, we can see that there have been improvements. In the year 1906, San Francisco, had a major earthquake causing 3,000 people to die.
Ethnography In October, the East Coast was hit by one of the most destructive hurricanes since Irene. Although this hurricane was very much anticipated, the after math was much greater than expected. While everyone waited as the hurricane approached, many people prepared by trying to seal up their homes in hopes of avoiding as much damage as possible. Aside from flooding, there were reports of people losing their power due to the high winds. The power loss was so immense that even hospitals that had backup generators had to evacuate from the facility.
Mayor Schell knew that being in a homeless facility was only short-term fix. His goal was to have those individuals take advantage of services that were being offered to them such as employment services and transitional housing (Norton, 2010). • Be more proactive in preventing homelessness. There could be over 1,300 people that would be homeless on any night in Seattle and 700 of those are families.

This could have a huge affect on the current war on drugs. The war on drugs will continue because apparently the big drug dealer can not be caught. Drugs are going to continue in the states simply because some people do not have jobs and each of these individuals sells drugs to try and make money.

Today in our society if drugs are not off the street our younger generations will began to sell it and use it too.
For years, it was common knowledge in Louisiana and Washington that New Orleans could be destroyed by a hurricane. But decision makers turned away from the long term investments that might have averted a catastrophe, pursuing instead projects with more immediate payoffs.

Natasha Policy Statement – My policy aims to try to stop, or at least reduce the amount of drunken incidents by creating a policy, where if an individual is barred from one club or pub due to their drunken and/ or aggressive behaviour, then they’re banned from all the clubs and pubs in the area for the night.

California Fires Better Ways to Fight and Protect Ourselves Introduction California Fires Better Ways to Fight and Protect ourselves in the season of high winds and fire destruction it is a question many Californians ask themselves whether you live close to fire area or not.

As people have to be hired to clean up, and people not wanting to go to dirty beaches. Cost money to people working at the beach.This problem doesn’t just occur in the Persian Gulf, it occurs world wide. A study from the university of Georgia, February 3rd 2015, claims that about 8 million metric tons of plastic trash enters the ocean every year. Pollution in the Persian gulf is negatively impacting marine life, as oils spills occur, and ocean mining is at it’s peak, but most importantly sewage dumping. Believe it or not we are all a witness of watching someone litter, or us littering.
Solutions plan to present a large event/fundraiser which will consist of several companies to collaborate on resolving homelessness. For the venue, we needed and large indoor space like the convention center. As with any event, risk factors are anticipated and we have come up with plans to mitigate issues to help avoid confusion, conflict, and preserve the safety of the facility, sponsors and patrons. One unavoidable risk is weather. If the event is held outside, it could cause a decrease in participants.
