Gesture Language

I have read through BBC NEWS about the actor his name David Bower this actor played a lot of deaf movies his intersted to teach the people who to act like deaf people because he thinks that these daef people part of our secity. After these movies which is the people consider them as a successful movies. He invited a lot of actores to join him to be a part of a small commienty as a small concert to teach in order to teach the people to communict with deaf people.

I think these very good idea because the purpose of these kind of movies. The people really goning to respect these kinds of movies. However, the people who is used to go to these kinds confernces are they going to use what they arealdy learn of these confernses. These kind of wroks going to let the people who has disabiltiy problems to feel that they are part of their community.

Risk in the Ocean 3

The tsunamis became really very dangerous for the people who were living in or close to them. Many people have died because of that matter. Moreover, many people in these areas complain of the poor warning system and some areas in the ocean don’t have any warning alert at all. The problem of whether these tsunamis were caused by earthquakes or by nuclear tests is not obvious for many people. Furthermore, the huge problem for the people who are living in these areas is that their government that controls these countries didn’t do anything to solve this problem. The biggest issue is what if the countries that have power did these kinds of test or if they are still doing it. The media is giving the people who are living in these areas unsure warning because nobody knows where the waves are going to go, which caused the people who are living in these areas to be in a panic situation all the time. Eighteen months after of the tragic tsunami the countries that are hit by tsunami in the Indian Ocean are working finally as a team to improve their warning systems, supported by UNESCO. However, they didn’t try this new system in a real situation to determine the weak points and the good points. Moreover, many people think this new technology is not going to help people that much because they believe the warning system can’t reach people in advance, and also, the waves are moving so fast, according to Mr. Budi(2006). A lot of difficulties force people who are living in these areas like Indonesia, because they don’t have a good warning system, which means they are warning people way after the earthquake happens which was south of Indonesia, instead of warning them in advance, according to Mr. Budi (2006). The last results make a lot of people happy, for the final result that they can inform people in advance, according to Mr. Elliott (2006) Furthermore, many people are looking for better results to make sure this new system can be secure for people who are living in these areas, especially Indonesia, because a tsunami can hit so fast, and they are looking for faster results like five minutes or less, according to Mr. Elliott. Tsunami is not a new disaster in Indonesia, but the last one was a long time ago, in 1883, and there were a lot of people killed because of that. “Even if the warning had arrived before the waves, the country still didn’t have a system to pass on the warning to the public, according to Indonesian officials” (2006, par. 10).

The countries that have been hit by tsunami have to solve the problem of their poor alert warning systems by asking the countries that have power for help. However, even if these poor countries don’t ask the countries that have power, these countries should be generous and offer their help. Moreover, the people who are living in these poor countries should do something to make their governments solve their problems, because these problems are really serious and could cost their lives.

The scientists should find out whether the tsunamis are caused by the earthquakes or by nuclear tests, to help these poor countries to solve their problems. The reason is to find direction that can help the scientists and the people who are living in these areas to work in one direction, because you can solve any problem with determination.

If that is really true that the countries that have power did it, or they are still doing the nuclear tests in the ocean, we should stop them. The people who are living in these countries are the only people who can stop these governments because the governments for these poor countries can’t change anything; I mean they have that capacity to stop these countries from doing these kinds of tests.

Many countries have been started to develop their warning systems after eighteen months from the disaster. However, these countries got support from UNESCO, which is a good thing, but the problem is many of these countries that got these kinds of warning system do not have the capacity to use this technology in appropriate ways. For example, when they get a signal from the monitor they don’t reach people in a fast way, because they can’t afford it because it requires a lot of money to get this technology for alert warning. Furthermore, their media don’t reach everyone for some reasons, and also, these are poor countries and not everyone has a television. I think even if the people get the warning in advance, it’s not going to help some people in these poor countries much because they don’t have strong buildings. These countries have to work to develop many things to secure their people; for example, to warn the people as soon as they get a signal from the monitor even if it costs big money, because people’s lives are very important.

The last study tells us they can reach the people as soon as that find out about any earthquakes. Moreover, it tells that they can determine whether a tsunami is caused by earthquakes or by nuclear tests. This is good news, that they can protect people from these natural disasters, but sometimes human beings can not predict everything.

In my opinion the system seems to be of high technology, but I think these organizations in change of the people and how they react to the emergency alarms and procedures have to follow up to save their life. I think that some campaigns should be done to inform the inhabitants of this region about the way they have to act once they have heard the emergency alarm.

In conclusion, the governments of these poor countries have to solve their people’s problems and the governments that have power should offer their hand for these countries. Furthermore, as for the countries that have a power, if they are still doing these kinds of tests they have to stop them immediately. The best way that they can solve these kinds of problems is to develop their communication systems. I think the government should invest in technology to alarm people about natural disasters. It is true that the economic situation of these countries is sometimes an obstacle to preventing death caused by natural disaster, but I think it is worthy to make an investment to avoid this kind of events.

Risk in the Ocean

I became interested in the recent tsunamis, which hit some islands and countries which are near the ocean, after reading two articles about them. The tsunamis became really very dangerous for the people who were living in or close to them. Many people have died because of that matter. Moreover, many people in these areas complain of the poor warning system and some areas in the ocean don’t have any warning alert at all. The problem of weather these tsunamis were caused by earthquakes or by nuclear tests is not obvious for many people. Furthermore, the huge problem for the people who are living in these areas is that their government that controls these countries didn’t do anything to solve this problem. The biggest issue is what if the countries that have power did these kind of test or if they are still doing it. The media is giving the people who are living in these areas unsure warning because nobody knows where the waves are going to go, which caused the people who are living in these areas to be in a panic situation all the time.

I plan on writing that three things should be done about the risk that is caused by tsunami in the ocean. First, the countries that have been hit by tsunami have to solve the problem of their poor alert warning systems by asking the countries that have power for help. Second, the scientists should find out whether the tsunamis are caused by the earthquakes or by nuclear tests to help these poor countries to solve their problems. Finally, if that is really true that the countries that have power did it or they are still doing the nuclear tests in the ocean, we should stop them.

I have found two articles that give background information on the risk in the ocean by tsunamis and have found a useful website that helps to describe the problem. I still need to know if U.S and France are doing unclear tests in the ocean.

The secret in the Indian Ocean

The author discusses in “Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Nuclear Testing” the fact that there are many secrets about the tsunamis which hit south east Asia. The author has given several questions for scientists to find out what the reason is that all these tsunamis whish hit these areas. Were they caused by earthquakes or nuclear testing? Furthermore, the author gave some famous examples of some countries that used these kind of test, for example; US, France, and Russia. Moreover, are these countries still doing these kind tests? Also, a lot of people in these places believe there is something wrong, because the unusual earthquakes hit the Indian Ocean. The author mentioned, as well, what these countries should do to solve these kind of disasters and to secure their people, and he gave some example: they should develop their communication systems. Finally, the author mentioned that no one of the authorities in these areas want to work to find out or to solve these kinds of problems.

The first thing that I want to say about this interview is these countries should work to develop their communication to warn the people who are living in these areas, or find out if these tsunamis were are caused by unclear tests? Furthermore, what if these countries are still doing these kinds of test. Should they stop doing it, or give money and apologize to these countries which are affected by these kind; of tests? Moreover, I’m wondering of there is any law that can stop these countries which have power.

The second thing that made me angry while I was reading this interview is that the author mentioned that the governments of these countries don’t want to work to solve these kinds of problems. Should the countries who have power help these people if their governments do not want to protect them and work to solve these problems? Moreover, what should these people who are living in these areas do, be violente or move to other countries.

The third thing that I’m wondering is whether these earthquakes are really the factors for these tsunamis or whether they are caused by these kinds of test. However, can the storms be caused by these kinds of tsunamis. Because the scientists didn’t given us any evident in this interview.

In conclusion, I think these tsunamis which hit these countries in the Indian Ocean are caused by unclear tests. However, what if that is really true and nothing is going to change because these countries that are doing these kinds of tests have power nobody is going to stop them from whatever they want to do. These governments which control these small countries in the Indian Ocean if these governments should stay away from these positions because they don’t deserve these kinds of responsibility.

Tsunami might hit Hawaii

Tsunami might hit Hawaii

The author discusses in ”Tonga fails to receive tsunami alert from Hawaii center” the fact that many warnings have been given to some countries in the South Pacific Ocean after the earthquake that struck near the South Pacific nation of Tonga. It was also a lot news about that areas. Furthermore, the author mentioned which is the best way for these areas to alert should watch out the population if there is one of their risk hitting these areas and he mentioned as an example what’s happened in the Indian Ocean; because of the weak alert many people died in that areas or where missing. The reason that people alert who are living about that tsunami is that Hawaii’s location is in the middle in the ocean which is there is a possibility that a tsunami can hit Hawaii at any time for that reason. Moreover, a huge earthquake hit a part of the ocean, but there were no injuries because they warned the people before that happened and nobody was on the beach at that time. However, they had some difficulties making the ocean islands secure, because they weren’t quite sure if these places received their warning or not. As Barry Hirshorn said” what we try to do is cover all the bases”. The people who work for Tonga’s National Disaster office try to develop their communication to warn the people as soon as they can. In New Zealand many people left their homes because they heard a report from the media but the government didn’t warn them because in some countries the media offer incorrect information.

I think this article is very important for several reasons for example how they authors in these places to find solution to solve these kinds of problems. The first thing they should do is to develop their telecommunication system that make them warn the people who live in these places as soon as they can. For example, they should use the satellite.

The second factor for these kinds of problems is that nobody is going to expect where are waves direction going to go so these difficulties are going to cause the media a lot of trouble; for example, they are going to warn the people every time after any earthquake is going to happen in the future, which is going to cause as well a lot of panic situations for the people who are living over there. Furthermore, the people who are living in these places are going to blame their government because of these mistakes. As we know for the last four years many places around the world have had crises like that.

The third suggestion is what should the authors do in these islands if some of these tsunamis and how to protect the people who are living in these island. My suggestion is that strong houses could protect the people from these crisis.

In conclusion, I completely agree with the author when he mentioned that it’s difficult to expect that where the waves are going to go, which is going to make the people in a panic situation all the time. Furthermore, the ocean is really huge and has a lot of secrets in it that no one can images or expect what it going to happen, even if the technology can reach.

The whales in danger in Hawaii

The author discusses in “Hawaii whales at risk form boats” the fact that many whales have been hit by boats in the last 30 years. Because whales population has been going up, the number of accidents has gone up as well. Moreover, the number of humpbacks has been growing every year. Professor Joseph Mobley mentioned that” as long as the population continues to get bigger, it’s going to keep happening”. Most of these whales actually came to Hawaii from Alaska and Canada. Furthermore, many calves over there get a risk as well because they want to surface on the beach very often. As a result, the author recommended many procedures that the drivers for the boats have to follow, many rules like speed limit when they see any whale.

The author over there should find a solution for these problems, but they can’t do anything about boat drivers because they already did and I think it’s really good rules if the drivers really follow these rules. On the other hand, I’m not happy about one thing in this article: the author didn’t made any procedures for the whales to find a solution, to make these whales go somewhere else because the ocean really huge that they can go and live in somewhere else and I suggest one thing: the can use signals that make the whales stay away form the dock.

As far as I know, Hawaii is one of the famous places around the world that many people like to visit. It’s mean a really huge number of people go to that island every year. I assume that many tourists feed the whales when they are on the boats, which keeps the whales around the boats. The author should suggest that they have to stop people doing that if it’s true. I mentioned that because we have a quite similar example; in my country a lot of cars have accidents caused by camels. The reason they have a lot of accidents over there is most of the people who own the camels don’t feed their camels well, like what they used to, so the camels always walk toward the cars. They think these cars bring food for them it just that my guess.

The third suggestion is they should use more technology in their boats, which can help the drivers to stop the boat before he hits the whales, and there are many way to use the technology to solve these certain kinds of problems. Or they can use a big net around the, so that boat even if the whales get hit, at least they don’t get hurt. Finally it’s a really good thing to collect two things both to solve this problem I mean by that follow the rules and use the technology .

In conclusion, I think this kind of risk is not that dangerous but they have to do their best to solve these kinds of risk. Furthermore, they should also use the technology to solve this problem. However, I think these kinds of accidents are very common in many places so we can decrease this problem but we can’t eliminate decrease it.
