Are You Prepared for the Next Earthquake?
This booklet is designed to help you and your family plan for and survive a major earthquake. By taking action to be prepared, you can lessen the impact of an earthquake on your family. Set aside some emergency supplies, and teach your family what to do at home during and after a disaster. You could be without help for up to 72 hours, so learn to cope for at least that long. Movement of the ground is seldom the actual cause of death or injury. Most casualties result from partial building collapse and falling objects and debris, like toppling chimneys, falling bricks, ceiling plaster, and light xtures. Many of these conditions are easily preventable. Because earthquakes occur without warning, it’s important to take steps now to prepare, so that you know what you can do and how to respond — constructive, protective action is possible.

Have on Hand for Any Emergency – Ideas for Home, Workplace, and Car
Because you don’t know where you will be when an earthquake occurs, prepare a Disaster Supplies Kit for your home, workplace, and car.

❏ Water. Store at least 1 gallon of water per
H2O
person per day and be prepared for a 72-hour period. A normally active person needs at least ½ gallon of water daily just for drinking. In determining adequate quantities, take the following into account: • Individual needs vary depending on age, physical condition, activity, diet, and climate. • Children, nursing mothers, and ill people need more water. • Very hot temperatures can double the amount of water needed. • A medical emergency might require more water. It is recommended that you buy commercially bottled water. Keep bottled water in its original container and do not open it until you need to use it. Also, pay attention to the expiration or “use by” date. If you choose to prepare your own containers of water, you should buy air-tight, food-grade water storage containers from surplus or camping supply stores. Before lling the containers, clean them with dish washing soap and water, and rinse them completely so that there is no residual soap. Water stored in your own containers should be replaced about every 6 months. In addition to water, have puri cation tablets such as Halazone and Globaline, but be sure to read the label on the bottle before using the tablets.

❏ Food. It’s always a practical idea to keep a supply of non-perishable food on hand that can be rotated into your diet and replenished on a regular basis. Have a suf cient supply

of canned or dehydrated food, powdered milk, and canned juices for at least 72 hours. Dried cereals and fruits and non-salted nuts are good sources of nutrition. Keep the following points in mind: • Avoid foods that will make you thirsty. Choose salt-free crackers, whole grain cereals, and canned goods with high liquid content. • Stock foods that do not require refrigeration, cooking, water, or special preparation. You may already have many of these on hand. • Remember to include foods for infants and special dietary needs. You should also have kitchen accessories and cooking utensils, especially a manual can opener.

❏ Flashlights and spare batteries. Keep a ashlight beside your bed, at your place of work, and in your car. Do not use matches or candles after an earthquake until you are certain that no gas leaks exist.

❏ Portable, battery-powered radio or television and spare batteries. Most telephones will be out of order or used for emergency purposes, so radios will be your best source of information. You may also want to have a battery-powered CB or other two-way radio.

❏ First aid kit and manual. Keep a rst aid kit at home and in your car. Also, have a manual such as Standard First Aid & Personal Safety by the American Red Cross. Have members of your household take basic rst aid and CPR courses. re extinguisher at home and in your car. Some extinguishers are good only for certain types of res — electrical, grease, or gas. Class ABC extinguishers are designed for safe use on any type of re. Your re department can show you how to use an extinguisher properly.

❏ Special needs. Keep a supply of special needs items, such as medications, extra eyeglasses, contact lens solutions, hearing aid batteries, items for infants (formula, diapers, bottles, and paci ers), sanitation and hygiene items (moist towelettes and toilet paper), and any items unique to your family’s needs.

❏ Important papers and cash. Be sure to have a supply of cash for use if ATMs, banks, and credit card systems are not operating. Also, keep copies of credit and identi cation cards and important documents, such as insurance policies and nancial records.

❏ Tools. In addition to a pipe wrench and crescent wrench (for turning off gas and water valves), you should have a lighter, a supply of matches in a waterproof container, and a whistle for signaling rescue workers.

Pipe Wrench

Cresent /Adjustable Wrench

❏ Clothes. If you live in a cold climate, you must think about warmth. You might not have heat after an earthquake. Think about your clothing and bedding supplies. Be sure to have one complete change of clothing and shoes per person, including the following: • jacket or coat • long pants • long sleeve shirt • sturdy shoes • hat, mittens or gloves, and scarf • sleeping bag or warm blanket (per person)

❏ Pet needs. Identify a shelter area for your pet, gather the necessary supplies, ensure that your pet has proper ID and up-to-date veterinarian records, and make sure you have a pet carrier and a leash.

Earthquake Safety Checklist

Home Preparedness
In the event of an earthquake, you may be instructed to shut off the utility services at your home. Teach responsible members of your family how to turn off the gas, electricity, and water at valves and main switches. Consult your local utilities if you need more information.

Pull-out Electrical Cartridge Fuses

Caution: Do not shut off gas unless an emergency exists. If gas is ever turned off, a professional must restore service.

Earthquake Hazard Hunt
You can identify potential dangers in your home by conducting an earthquake hazard hunt. Foresight and common sense are all that are needed as you go from room to room and imagine what would happen in an earthquake. Some possible hazards are: • Tall, heavy furniture that could topple, such as bookcases, china cabinets, or modular wall units.
Earthquake Safety Checklist
5

• Water heaters that could be pulled away from pipes and rupture. • Appliances that could move enough to rupture gas or electrical lines. • Hanging plants in heavy pots that could swing free of hooks. • Heavy picture frames or mirrors over a bed. • Latches on kitchen or other cabinets that will not hold the door closed during shaking. • Breakables or heavy objects that are kept on high or open shelves. • A masonry chimney that could crumble and fall through an unsupported roof. • Flammable liquids, like painting or cleaning products, that would be safer in a garage or outside shed. Take steps to correct these hazards — secure or relocate heavy items as appropriate.

Family Earthquake Drill
It’s important to know where you should go for protection when your house starts to shake. By planning and practicing what to do before an earthquake occurs, you can condition yourself and your family to react correctly and spontaneously when the rst jolt or shaking is felt. An earthquake drill can teach your family what to do in an earthquake. • Each family member should know safe spots in each room. • Safe spots: The best places to be are under heavy pieces of furniture, such as a desk or sturdy table; under supported archways; and against inside walls. • Danger spots: Stay away from windows, hanging objects, mirrors, replaces, and tall, unsecured pieces of furniture. • Reinforce this knowledge by physically placing yourself in the safe locations. This is especially important for children. • In the days or weeks after this exercise, hold surprise drills. • Be prepared to deal with what you may experience after an earthquake — both physically and emotionally.

Earthquake Safety Checklist

How To Ride Out the Earthquake
Limit your movements during an earthquake to a few steps to a nearby safe place. Stay indoors until the shaking has stopped and you are sure it is safe to leave. If you are indoors: • Drop, Cover, and Hold — Take cover under a sturdy desk, table, or bench, or against an inside wall, and hold on. If there is no desk or table near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building. • Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall, such as lighting xtures and furniture. • If you are in bed when the earthquake strikes, stay there. Hold on and protect your head with a pillow, unless you are under a heavy light xture that could fall. In that case, move to the nearest safe place. • Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. Most injuries during earthquakes occur when people are hit by falling objects while entering or leaving buildings. • Be aware that electricity may go out or that sprinkler systems or re alarms may turn on. • Do not use elevators. If you are outdoors: • Stay there. • Move away from buildings, trees, streetlights, and utility wires. If you are in a moving car: • Stop as quickly as safety permits, pull to the side of the road, and stay in the car. • Avoid stopping near or under buildings, trees, overpasses, and utility wires.
Earthquake Safety Checklist

• Do not attempt to drive across bridges or overpasses that have been damaged. • Proceed cautiously after the earthquake has stopped, watching for road and bridge damage. If you are trapped under debris: • Do not light a match. • Do not move about or kick up dust. • Cover your mouth with a handkerchief or clothing. • Tap on a pipe or wall so that rescuers can nd you. Use a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort — shouting can cause you to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.

When the Ground Stops Shaking
Check for Injuries
If anyone has stopped breathing, give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Stop any bleeding injury by applying direct pressure to the wound. Do not move seriously injured people unless they are in immediate danger of further injury. Cover injured persons with blankets to keep them warm. Keep a battery-powered radio with you so you can listen for emergency updates and news reports. Be aware of possible tsunamis if you live in a coastal area. Tsunamis are also known as seismic sea waves. When local authorities issue a tsunami warning, assume that a series of dangerous waves is on the way. Move inland to higher ground as quickly as possible. Do not use the telephone unless there is a severe injury. For more detailed emergency procedures, consult your rst aid manual.

Earthquake Safety Checklist

Wear shoes in areas near fallen debris or broken glass.

Check for Hazards
If possible, put out small fires. If not, leave your home immediately, notify the re department if possible, and alert your neighbors. Use a battery-powered flashlight to inspect your home. Turn the ashlight on outside, before entering, because the battery may produce a spark that could ignite leaking gas, if present. Check gas, electrical, and water lines, and check appliances for damage. If you smell gas or see a broken line, shut off the main valve from the outside. Do not switch on the electricity again until the power company has rst checked your home. Remember, if gas is turned off, a professional must restore service. Do not search for gas leaks with a lighted match. Caution: Do not use electrical switches or appliances if gas leaks are suspected, because sparks can ignite gas from broken lines. Switch off electrical power if there is damage to your house electrical wiring. If the situation is unsafe, leave your home and seek help.

Do not touch downed lines or broken appliances.

Check the building for cracks and damage, particularly around chimneys and masonry walls. Leave immediately if it looks like the building might collapse. Use replaces only if the chimney has no damage and no cracks. Clean up spilled medicines, bleaches, and gasoline and other flammable liquids.

Earthquake Safety Checklist

Check to see that water and sewage lines are intact before using the toilet. Plug bathtub and sink drains to prevent sewage backup. Check water and food supplies. If the water is cut off, use emergency water supplies — in water heaters and melted ice cubes. Throw out all food that may be spoiled or contaminated. Check closets and cupboards. Open doors cautiously. Beware of objects tumbling off shelves.

H2O

Use charcoal or gas grills for emergency cooking, only out of doors.

Do not use your car, unless there is an emergency. Do not go sightseeing through areas of damage. You will only hamper the relief effort. Keep streets clear for the passage of emergency vehicles. Be prepared for aftershocks. These secondary earthquakes are usually less violent than the main quake, but they can be strong enough to cause additional damage and weaken buildings. Stay away from damage areas unless your assistance has been speci cally requested by police, re, or relief organizations.

If You Have To Evacuate
Post a message in clear view that states where you can be found. Take your Disaster Supplies Kit. List reunion points in case of separation. Such points may be the homes of neighbors, friends, or relatives; schools; or community centers. Use the blanks below to list reunion points. 1.

...are happy. These are happy, Jesus notes, because they will inherit the earth, they will be shown mercy, they will see God, and they will be called sons of God. What Jesus means by being happy, however, is not simply being jovial or mirthful, as when one is having fun. True happiness is deeper, carrying the thought of contentment, a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in life. So those who are truly happy, Jesus shows, are people who recognize their spiritual need, are saddened by their sinful condition, and come to know and serve God. Then, even if they are hated or persecuted for doing God’s will, they are happy because they know they are pleasing God and will receive his reward of everlasting life. However, many of Jesus’ listeners, just like some people today, believe that being prosperous and enjoying pleasures is what makes a person happy. Jesus knows otherwise. Drawing a contrast that must surprise many of his listeners, he says: “Woe to you rich persons, because you are having your consolation in full. Woe to you who are filled up now, because you will go hungry. Woe, you who are laughing now, because you will mourn and weep. Woe, whenever all men speak well of you, for things like these are what their forefathers did to the false prophets.” What does Jesus mean? Why does having riches, laughingly pursuing pleasures, and enjoying the plaudits of men bring woe? It is because when a person has and cherishes these things, then service to God, which alone brings......

This article is different in many ways the first is the length and the amount of information in the article. In sociology periodicals they give you a step by step breakdown on how they come to their conclusion. The level of writing is also higher as they are targeting a higher educated subscriber and a specialized cohort. In providing this information in sociology periodicals they also implement math, science and multiple graphs but the main focus is to get the information out to the public to create discussion. They are similar as well because just like Time or Newsweek they touch on an aspect of society and reveal something telling about the subject.

...join and what my job would be once I was in. I had a lot more uncertainties as to where I would be stationed, where I might deploy to or the risks I would be undertaking by joining in my career field. By comparing the good and bad, I “accepted the fact that decisions have consequences entailing risk,” and I chose to explore life and see where it would bring me. The easier choices were getting to travel for free, being able to go to school for free, serving my country, and exploring and starting a new life with new people and surroundings. My maximizing decision was very simply because I had plenty of positive consequences and only one negative, (leaving my family and friends). The alternate solution that I had was easy to overpass because it was to just stay in the town I was raised in and keep my same job as a cook. This made my decision to join very easy, because I didn’t want to stay there all my life and was tired of being stuck there and going no where. This was easy for me because I only had one choice at the time, but in a tougher situation the text would be very helpful especially when it comes to generating alternate solutions and then evaluating them. One of the actions that I did do in my decision making process was implementing my decision. I did implement my alternative to see where not joining would take me.

Because everyone is intellectual in their own way whether or not they attend college. You would think that with the title of a degree would come with massive amounts of knowledge in a certain subject. But in reality college isn’t always the best way to show your strengths. Some of the most intellectual people you will meet will neither be a college graduate with a fancy job and lots of money, or a person who works at the local grocery store who has the memory of your home computer someone who can remember anything you tell them. People like that are just waiting for their time to show their skills. Someone who knows firsthand on the subject of blue class workers is Mike Rose who wrote the essay “Blue Collar Brilliance” where Rose challenges the view that intelligence can be measured by the amount of schooling a person has completed. He suggests that blue-collar and service jobs require more intelligence than meets the eye. He describes his experiences growing up; observing his mother as a waitress in coffee shops and family restaurants, Rose also talks about the language that the employees had.

There are many factors that urge students to watch anime that leads to addiction. Anime itself serves as a great factor that let the students to watch, because anime became the latest trend for all teenagers and having a good storyline that makes the students hook up. Another one is due to cool animation, which has a vibrant color that tickles their eyes every time they watched a single episode. Next is peer pressure, which influences a person to watch anime, when your group is expose to anime it will surely influence you. Last is boredom buster. As an expert say, "Boredom is not the lack of sensory stimulation: It is just a lack of imagination or creative thinking, so students tend to watch anime more  often and surf the internet to read online manga.” Discussion I. Anime Anime is a term for Japanese animation. The word is the abbreviated pronunciation of "animation" in Japanese, where this term references all animation. In other languages, the term is defined as animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastic themes. Arguably, the stylization approach to the meaning may open up the possibility of anime produced in countries other than Japan. For simplicity, many Westerners strictly view anime as an animation product from Japan.

...an important enough commodity to allow the existence of evil. The Comfort of Atheism McCloskey concludes with a statement that is the antitheses of the opening statement claiming that it is harder and colder if you do not believe in God. He states that atheism is more comforting than atheism (McCloskey, 1968, p. 54). Is Atheism more comforting? It would seem that this is what McCloskey wanted the point of his paper to be. Yet throughout the paper there is not any reference to comfort. There is only reference as to why McCloskey believes there is no God. His point is not at all backed by the pages of text he put together. This is not to say that the author does not hold these argument in high esteem in his heart. It is only to say that just because he believes in atheism and that he believes he has good evidence, that his viewpoint could still be the harder and colder viewpoint to have. Without God one becomes but a wisp in the wind, without meaning, value or purpose. Without God man lives for an infinitesimally small amount of time, in the grand scheme of things, then dies. He is nonexistent. However, with God, man’s purpose is for relationship. With God, man’s value is that of God’s own son. With God, man’s meaning is to be the son of God and to fulfill God’s purpose. Without God, Man is in a cold hard world with no hope for any of this. With God, Man’s destiny is in the arms of a loving Father, and a loving Groom. Conclusion McCloskey has shown some well thought out......

Joining Generations

...Joining Generations University of Phoenix Joining Generations Social problems are a rather specific matter for the analysis. A problem can be explained by the fact that there is no uniform opinion among scientists as for the definition of the term, and moreover, the problems can be of various types and kinds. However, the most important point in this is that the interpretation of social problems is rather personal. This means that a problem can be important to one person and absolutely of no importance to another one. But of course, this does not mean that social problems should be interpreted and analyzed subjectively. Even vice versa, the analyst should forget his or her personal views of the problem so, that to ensure its objective analysis. Consequently, social problems should be considered with the help of the strong pieces of evidence. There are small and large social problems and in this paper one of the largest ones will be addressed. Problem The topic of my proposal is the joining of generations in all its aspects.
