    Very well done! That 3.95 is insane in itself without packing on some game time. Wow. She is completely awesome.

    Im Doing Emergency Management at MMA. which is a new major they offer and it's state of the art for the CG. heres a discription of it.

    Emergency Management


    Recent years have exposed the vulnerability of developed and developing countries to natural hazards, the sources of which range from tsunamis and hurricanes to floods, earthquakes, mud slides, volcanoes, and forest fires. The recent tsunami in the Indian Ocean and Hurricane Katrina have cost thousands of lives and trillions of dollars. In India, the 1993 earthquake in the state of Maharashtra killed more than 9,000 people and injured 10,000. In Japan, the 1995 earthquake in the city of Kobe killed 5,000 and resulted in more than $100 billion worth of damages. In all cases, the social, economic, and biophysical effects were disastrous. Could planning and preparedness have been better thought out? Could response and recovery be better organized and executed?

    Equally threatening are man-made hazards, such as terrorism and industrial accident. Disasters like the attack on the World Trade Center in September 2001; the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska; the 1986 nuclear accident in Chernobyl, Russia; and the 1984 Union Carbide chemical plant explosion in Bhopal, India continue to evoke memories of lives lost and ecosystems devastated.

    In this degree program, educational coursework has been developed for each of three key concepts; hazard, risk, and disaster. The program component for hazard and risk (risk management) consists of a framework that explores four states in assessment and management including Risk Assessment, Control Analysis, Strategy Section and Implementation and Evaluation. In the case of disaster, the students will study the different temporal stages in a disaster cycle, including; Mitigation or Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery.
    Today's world is in great need of individuals who are skilled in these areas. Government agencies, global companies and non-profit response organizations are looking for tomorrowメs leaders today!

    Pretty Neat! I'm siked!
