Land Management is a tough thing to get right. In many cases, you need to find compromises between the parties involved, and work hard on ensuring everybody feels part of the process. In this unit, each student gets a piece of land to role play in a number of micro-nations. Each week, students will face new challenges as they are presented, all the time trying to use their land to the best of their abilities while also protecting the environment as a whole.
The Oceans Garden: Coral Reefs (DC)
Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups.
- Natural disasters: including floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and volcano eruptions that have immediate impacts on human health and secondary impacts causing further death and suffering from (for example) floods, landslides, fires, tsunamis.
- Environmental emergencies: including technological or industrial accidents, usually involving the production, use or transportation of hazardous material, and occur where these materials are produced, used or transported, and forest fires caused by humans.
- Complex emergencies: involving a break-down of authority, looting and attacks on strategic installations, including conflict situations and war.
- Pandemic emergencies: involving a sudden onset of contagious disease that affects health, disrupts services and businesses, brings economic and social costs.
Any disaster can interrupt essential services, such as health care, electricity, water, sewage/garbage removal, transportation and communications. The interruption can seriously affect the health, social and economic networks of local communities and countries. Disasters have a major and long-lasting impact on people long after the immediate effect has been mitigated. Poorly planned relief activities can have a significant negative impact not only on the disaster victims but also on donors and relief agencies. So it is important that physical therapists join established programmes rather than attempting individual efforts.
Local, regional, national and international organisations are all involved in mounting a humanitarian response to disasters. Each will have a prepared disaster management plan. These plans cover prevention, preparedness, relief and recovery.
Studying art history to many is just a way to get extra credit, while to others they do just because it is mandatory. So why go through a whole undergraduate life just to earn a bachelor’s degree? What is the value of studying art history?
Art has existed for a very long time even before the beginning of formal education. In the ancient times, it was used to appease the gods, frighten enemies, compel people, and distinguish between various cultures and even served reasons for personal and economic importance. Most of the pieces of art that you see have a personal history behind them, and while the average eye only appreciates the aesthetic of that piece of art, an art student would take time to see the main essence of it. For example, going to the museum without prior knowledge of art or a tour guide might not be very worthwhile.
This will happen because you might not know how to interpret the works in the galleries or the edifice in the museum. You may also not notice that the paintings and artworks have been adequately arranged to denote a difference in time and therefore to refer the transition in the history of a particular culture or people. All these, however, are not strange to a student who is enrolled in a program, as most of his assignments and course works would make sure that he interacts with most of this artwork and give visual and textural interpretations of them. This is important to consider, as this interest you may have could lead you to take art history jobs.
Art simply refers to the expression of thoughts, intuitions, desires, and emotions. The course will open your eyes to your surroundings, and every piece of artwork you find will have a story to tell. The several aspects of art talk about history in different ways, and from a play showing the rise of a culture to a piece of the architectural masterpiece that holds different puzzles about the past. All these come together in art history to help us understand the happenings of the past without using plain words or simple deductions.
