August 23, 2012 The Philippine government’s Department of Science and Technology or DOST Advanced Science and Technology Institute along with the help of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA), Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PhilVolcs) and University of the Philippine’s National Institute of Geological Science and its College of Engineering launched its project called “National Operation Assessment of Hazards and Risk” known as “Project NOAH” last July 6, 2012 in the city of Marikina to promote and combine advance science and technology to enhance the disaster management and prevention capacity of the Philippines.

This project was designed to answer the need for a systematic early warning system for floods in the country. As we all know, the Philippines have experienced unexpected huge calamities these past few years examples of those were the Typhoon Ondoy happened last 2009 and the recent monsoon happened two weeks ago that caused great damages on the lives of our fellow countrymen, their properties and source of living which also affected the whole country’s economy. Due to this repetitious and unavoidable condition, this project would provide a more accurate, timely and easy to access warning about hazards that would affect the country for the safety of our people in every area of the Philippines.

With the use of advance technology, this project would be able to provide a six hour ahead of time warning in the communities subjected to danger against incoming floods by the use of a geo- hazard vulnerability map which will be accessed using the internet. Presently this

    Noah While the story and the contents of the film stays true to the Old Testaments of the Bible, it seems like the story takes place in a distant future after a global post-nuclear disaster, unlike in the Bible, in which the story did took place in the distant past during a time when modern civilizations first occurred.

    Book Report - NoahWebster Noah Webster was written by Elaine Cunningham. This book has 147 page and 12 chapters. This biography talks about the events in Noah’s life in Hartford, Conneticut where Noah and his family live. Even though little Noah lived in an old farm house he still got an education. I think the author of this book wrote the book to show children a example that they should not only read, but read to succeed. Noah Webster was a curious five years old who did…
