A person has to face certain situations in his/her life that he/she cannot control. These situations are called calamities. In simple language they are referred to as catastrophes and disasters. Catastrophes and disasters may be of different kind. It can either be a volcano eruption, an earthquake, landslide, mud flow (torrent), tsunami, forest fires, flood, tornado, etc. In all these cases a person has to know exactly the way to behave oneself facing the difficult situation. The rules are pretty simple:

Staying calm and patient. Many people start running from the danger that causes them. It is a wrong thing to be doing. A person is to fully analyze the situation he/she is dealing with and understand its most important concepts. Running and big crowds of people make people very nervous. Pretty often it leads to many people being trampled down. Unfortunately, many individuals resort to panic in difficult situations when they should not do it.
The disasters may not be as serious as people consider them to be. ‘Being safe is better than being sorry,’ the saying says. However, government officials also must take into account the fact that curfews only need to be resorted to when the situation itself is very serious. The same concerns opposite side of the catastrophes seriousness. Pretty often government is too careless, not taking into account the incidents seriously, when human lives are at stake.
Possessing certain knowledge helps people doing certain things other people may not be able to accomplish. During a flood certain individuals may be able to swim when there is nothing left for others other than to drown. The same concerns heavy snow falls (using a truck if the person has one), earthquakes (standing in the door apertures), landslide (contacting the multi frequency network to send helicopters if there is such a possibility), etc.

STUDY: Air Pollution Kills... A Lot

Almost one in seven children worldwide live in areas with high levels of outdoor air pollution, mostly in South Asia, and their growing bodies are most vulnerable to damage, the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF said on Monday.

UNICEF called on almost 200 governments, which will meet in Morocco from Nov. 7-18 for talks on global warming, to restrict use of fossil fuels to give twin benefits of improved health and slower climate change…

One of the most important aspects of being a healthy skeptic is knowing that just because a scientific study was done on a topic does not mean the study was done well, or that the conclusion the authors reach is supported by what they actually did. But when someone states that a particular study has major flaws or was well-done, what precisely does that mean?

In this video, Dr. John Cmar analyzes two different journal articles in detail, focusing on the good, the bad, and the ugly of how studies are done and interpreted.

John Cmar, MD, has been long enthralled with horrible infections that could spell doom for humankind, as well as sanity and skepticism in the practice of medicine. He is currently an Instructor of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and the Assistant Director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. He is the lead physician in Sinai’s Ryan White initiative, which provides medical care and social assistance to patients with HIV infection who are without medical insurance.

In his role as Program Director for the Internal Medicine residency program at Sinai, he teaches an annual course series in Evidence-Based Medicine, among many other duties.
He also does Infectious Diseases outreach in Baltimore television and print media, and is the guest-in-residence on the monthly Midday on Health show with Dan Rodricks on 88.1 WYPR radio in Baltimore. John is a science fiction and fantasy fan, avid gamer, and podcast enthusiast. He currently blogs and podcasts on skeptical, medical, and geeky topics as Saint Nickanuck of the Tundra at johncmar.com

Whether you’re majoring in economics, or are taking it as a prerequisite, it can be an intense course. But as intense as it is, it is also an extremely important course. Studying it helps you become a more aware and active participant in the global economy, as a producer and a consumer. In today’s political and economic landscape, knowledge is power, and college economics courses are designed to give you that knowledge to better understand the policies that shape things. In college economics courses, optimal study habits are necessary for comprehension and retention of the material at hand. If you’re currently enrolled in, or are thinking of enrolling in college economics courses, here are a few tips to help you study effectively and actually see results.

1) Using your syllabus as a guide, read the material ahead of time. When you attend a lecture, the material your professor goes over shouldn’t be new. By prepping before class and getting a jump on the material, you can better understand what your professor is actually talking about. This is a universal study habit that you should develop to better succeed in all of your courses, and is especially handy if you’re dealing with complex economic concepts. It goes without saying that you should be taking notes in class. Many professors recommend that students recopy their notes and fill in any missing info using the textbook. If you do this within eight hours after the lecture, you’re much more likely to absorb the material.

2) Speaking of your textbook, you should most definitely engage in active reading. That means you can’t just read your textbook like you would a novel. You really need to delve deeper into the information to help you understand the key concepts. Pay attention to headings, subheads, and bold words. They are there for a reason: to alert you that this is something you need to know. Don’t be afraid to take notes in the margins of your textbook, and underline/highlight important information.

3) When you’re all done reading the assigned chapters and have rewritten your noted, you should try to prepare your own written summaries of the chapters/units. This is another great method of active engagement. A simple way to do this is to write down the main points of each chapter section and then make a bulleted list of supporting points.

4) If you’ve done all of this, and still aren’t making any headway, contact college tutors. College tutors are dedicated to helping students who just can’t make the material stick. There is even online college tutoring out there that can work around even the busiest student’s schedule. In addition to an economics tutor, you can join a study group. Hearing what other students have to say about the material is often helpful, and can help you open your eyes to the material in a whole new way.

Best of luck with your economic course. Don’t give up and remember these tips when you’re having trouble getting a firm grasp on key concepts.
