Earthquake Safety Tips
Before an earthquake:
o Make family disaster plan.
o Keep emergency kit items such as water, food items, first aid kit, torch, portable radio, extra batteries for torch and radio, fire extinguisher, hammers and shovels in your house within your reach. This kit may be checked from time to time to keep it up to date.
o Make sure every one knows where the emergency kit items are kept.
o Train your family members in ‘basic first aid’ and ‘rescue operation’ because medical facilities and rescue team may be overloaded immediately after a severe earthquake.
o Learn how to stop electric main and gas supply at the time of earthquake.
o Don’t keep heavy objects in high shelves.
o Identify emergency exit of your home, educational institute and work place.
o Do not keep almirahs/racks in the passage in your home, educational institute, work place, hospitals as they will block the exit routes during emergency.
o Identify safe places in your home, educational institute and work place for shelter during earthquake.
o Fasten heavy appliances to the floor, and anchor heavy furniture to the walls.
o Know what to do and where to meet your family after an earthquake if anybody separated.
o Hold meeting in home and work place at regular interval and discuss earthquake safety tips and assign responsibilities to each member.
o Hold earthquake drill at regular interval and know what to do during an earthquake.
o Urge your school teachers to discuss earthquake safety in the class rooms, and ask them to conduct drills.
o Find out your office has an emergency plan, know your responsibility at your works during an emergency.
o Organize earthquake disaster management team in your area to develop earthquake awareness and train for post earthquake relief operation.

During an earthquake:
Indoors
o Stay inside and remain calm. Secure your personal safety based on your surroundings. Survival depends upon how you react in such emergencies. Many injuries occur as people enter or leave the buildings.
o Do not rush towards the doors or staircase. They may be broken or jammed. You can be injured by falling debris.
o Never use elevator. You may get trapped inside. Stop the elevator at the nearest floor and get off immediately if you are in elevator during earthquake
o DROP, COVER, AND HOLD ON! Move only a few steps to a nearby safe place. Get under a table, desk or bed to avoid injuries or stand in a strong doorway or take shelter near an inner wall, as maximum damage occurs in outer wall.
o Do not stand in balconies. Stay away from glass widows, mirrors, almiras and heavy objects (over hanged & standing). If you are in a high rise building stand against a support column.
o If you are in bed, hold on, stay there, protect your head with a pillow.
o Stay indoors until the shaking stops and you're sure it's safe to exit.
Outdoors
o Find a clear spot away from buildings, trees, and power lines and stay in the open place.
o Drop to the ground until the shaking stops.
In A Car
o Turn on emergency flashers, slow down and safely bring the vehicle to a stop away from electricity poles and overhead wires.
o Do not stop on overpasses, underpasses, or bridges. Be careful of overhead hazards such as power lines or falling building debris.
o Turn off the ignition and set the parking brake.
o Stay inside the car until the shaking stops.
Page 2 of 3
After an earthquake:
o Check yourself and others for injuries, provide first aid. Do not move seriously injured persons unless they are in immediate danger of further injury.
o Remember to help your neighbors who may require special assistance--infants, the elderly and people with disabilities.
o Do not use match, lighter or turn on a light switch until it has been established that there is no gas leak. Use torchlight instead.
o Check electric and gas connection.
o Turn on your radio or T.V for earthquake information and emergency instructions, reduce the use of phone lines it may be required for conveying some important messages.
o Stay out of damaged buildings.
o Expect aftershocks. Each time you feel one, DROP, COVER, AND HOLD ON!
o Wear shoes/chapels and gloves to protect against shattered glass and debris.
o Stay away from beaches and water front areas where Tsunami could strike, even long after the shaking has stopped.
o Do not spread rumors. They lead to panic and worsen the situation.
o Keep the streets clear for the passage of emergency services and help rescue operation.
o Cooperate with government authorities. Respond to requests for cooperation and help from government authorities, police and fire services.

Ramadan and Fasting / A Conversation between two....
« on: September 06, 2009, 01:18:15 PM »
Disclaimer: I just received it from a friend of mine....and I don't claim the authorship of the interesting conversation between a Professor and his student......
Enjoy this....
...
 
 
An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty. He asks one of his new students to stand and.....

Prof : So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.

Prof: Is God good?
Student: Sure.

Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Student: Yes.

Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then? Hmm?
Student is silent.

Prof: You can't answer, can you?
Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good?
Student: Yes.

Prof: Is Satan good?
Student: No.

Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From...God...

Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.

Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.

Prof: So who created evil?
Student does not answer.

Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.

Prof: So, who created them?
Student has no answer.

Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son...Have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.

Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.

Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.

Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.

Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.

Prof: Yes Faith. And that is the problem science has.

Now the student said can I ask something to you Professor.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Prof: Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as cold?
Prof: Yes.

Student: No sir. There isn't.

(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)

Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?

Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something.
You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light... But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?

Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?


Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.


Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?


(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)

Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class is in uproar.)

Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?


(The class breaks out into laughter.)

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it sir... The link between man & god is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive. .

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it sir... The link between man & god is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive. .


WANT TO KNOW WHO THAT STUDENT WAS?

This is a true story, and the student was none other than

DR. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam , President of India
