yeh, mate.
I totally agree with you on the taste thing. I like trying lots of different malts.

On the essay thing... go on, off you go and do some work. It's only a couple of years since I left uni and I remember the dissertation finishing at about 5.30am, I was at the binders by 10 and handed in by noon!

Good luck.
Tim

Too late. Just "reviewed it", re-read the title, deleted all the rubbish that had nothing to do with it, and we're only just back up to 2557! Cold light of day is good idea, but I have to fit that in around revising for this exam tomorrow as well!

Now, single malt whiskey aside, I'm sure the "older" generation can't have had it that much harder? Huge financial pressures, being forced to generate more work so that government targets are reached by the university, juggling study, work, and social lives like a mad thing, and trying to find time to go ribbing/sailing?

Ah, I remember now. The older generation didn't have ribbing to worry about as students!

But 'pulling an all nighter' was something you did if you were lucky on cheap night at one of the clubs down by the pier.

"A comparison of the roles played and effectiveness of emergency services' response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, USA, with the 1953 Storm Surge in the UK"

I am doing geography and after a few pints and a quick look at the question I would think they are looking for the following, but you have probably covered these:

-Effectiveness of emergency services suggest detailing number of lives lost etc and infrastructure in place. Can compare and contrast improvement over the time span.

- Developments in Natural hazard monitoring tech - in 2005 could they give more warning because they had been monitoring the hazard, (plate boundaries in the case of earth quakes).

-Attitudes / importance of natural hazard planning in the U.K and America

-transportation links, communication links etc


Might think of a few more in a minute....


- strategies taken, was there any infrastructure/ planning in place in the event of flooding, storm surge in 1953, I don't know because I havent read up but I assume you have.

Has the events in 1953 contributed or triggered developments in emergency planning.

ADS, cool. I'd got a lot of that, but you've given me some nice areas to think about, and also worded your headings a lot better than some of mine!

(P.S. - i wrote the question . He's after whatever I give him.)

I don't know anything about the UK storm - did we deploy the Army? If so were we more ready to do so because our military were better staffed (National Service, post war etc - than cost cutting, Iraq/Afganistan etc) or is the modern army better suited to non fighting roles.

How about the role of the Media in the response to the disasters - both in terms of scrutinising / political pressure and in terms of generating public support? Its impossible today to cock up without the whole world knowing? And everyone expects everything faster in todays 24/7 society.

Yes, we did use the Army - however not to the extent the US used their Army after Katrina. (Note - Both Bangladesh and Cuba offered the US aid after katrina )

Media is good one - a little outside my scope, but can put it in under governance and accountability. Media is another essay on it's own.

Remember I'm an old git now, and its too late to figure out what ROTFLMAO means?

I expect my advise about where to get some 'herbal' help to stay up all night will be a bit out of date, sorry.

Nasher.
