An excellent thought Julie. The artists' colony in Lewes I'm a member of is full of ladies debating such things and organising natural childbirth things amongst themselves.

 One of my big issues is the high birth mortality rate in some developing countries. I regulary go onto Yale on-line and attend one of their lectures and have passed this link on to loads of friends too. Recently on-line I was able to view a lecture delivered by the head of Italian Classics at Yale, great stuff and completely accessible to me, my idea was if it is so easy why cannot community workers in remote parts of the world have access to learning something like midwifery?, there are some language barriers etc but nothing insurmountable and its no extra hassle for the lecturer who is giving the lecture anyway. Might make a big difference as all that would be needed is some IT know how and a load of goodwill.

FastCompany magazine has an article on that today at:

W have been following the "Smart Cities" project for a long time. It was started by Ericcson, and a lot of very interesting work has already been done.
There's a page you can use to view a movie/status report which has been heavily updated from the original versions, and which breaks the material into 20 minute segments. Some thought provoking stuff - aimed at a Networked Society.

Policy leaders need to review Critical Infrastructure for the Future

Posted by Doug Hanchard on March 20, 2014 at 16:22 0 Comments

Disaster Managers are continually faced with elements that are beyond their control. It is a matter of fait accompli and implements response assets with what is available. In other words, it is not rocket science. But if policy makers understood the consequences based on known gaps and analysis, response agency success would dramatically improve. David Lincoln offers this overview addressing some of the issues requiring increased awareness and review in the United States.

Multinational military operation comes together to find missing B-777

Disaster Management is not a isolated group of people and assets inside a bubble. It often requires teamwork and expertise from outside normal channels and organizations. We have seen large scale disaster operations bring in domestic and international military units as full partners in support a disaster response. It often makes the difference between success or failure during recovery operations.
