Commentary and Opinions

Last week, we wrote an article for GSN about personal resilience being the foundation of national resilience, and we discussed the consequences of the following facts:
By Ann Coss and Ronald BearseSince the attacks of 9-11, our nation has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on strengthening its homeland security and domestic disaster response and recovery capabilities.   Despite these expenditures, individuals and families are concerned that they now have to think seriously about being prepared to be self-reliant for as long as a week, based on assumptions about disaster aid from external sources. And so they should be. 
America’s critical infrastructure includes communications, electric power, information technology, commercial and government facilities criss-crossing the country. With thousands of sites scattered across federal, state and local jurisdictions, there are inherent and challenging security risks, such as theft, sabotage and terrorism. 
In an effort to stay ahead of the ever increasing demands of managing and controlling the world’s vast network of roads, the vehicles that use them and the people that rely on them, law enforcement is turning to transportation vision systems for help. 
By Esther Ndichu and Dale Herzog  Meteorologists sometimes can predict disasters with a high degree of certainty days, if not weeks, before they make landfall. Other times, however, the public is warned within mere minutes; and then there are those events that can’t be predicted at all.
