A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

April 20th, 2010 Sponge

The small island country of Haiti had 2 major earthquakes within 1 week. Their nation suffered an incredible tragedy. We came to their aid and have raised over $100 million to help them. Why do we not have this type of response to help our own people (Americans, Hurricane Katrina)? Do you think that there is some technology today that we could have used to prevent these types of tragedies from ever happening again? (You must write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

  1. To be compLeTLy honesT irealLy do noT knoe of anyy Thinqg ThaT ckuLd heLp us ! maybe if we had beTTer pracTice if There waszx aa hurrican . ckuszx we do ihT in skooLszx whyy noT do iT in acTuaL Life ? ckuszx foren ppL do noT knoe waT To doo !

  2. am honstley going to have to say that i dont think i know what to do. i think one day we can find a techelogly like that or something but fur realz i dont think we have no techlongly that we can help them with.

  3. well we cant control wat earth doe.no amount of technology can control mother nature kuxz it does wat it does. so i mean i gez we helped haiti more tew make us lewk lyke the bettu and careing ppl wen wed didnt even have enough curtisy tew helpp our contrie in the tragic times we had!!! but i really dont thing we culd kum up with nything no matta how gud of technology it was that wuld stop earths natural disassters!!! :O

  4. Well we have good tecnology but to be honest as bad as it sounds no I do not think we could have tecnology to stop these tragedy`s from happening. You can never tell when something like this is happening it just happens. But I always have the question in my mind what if we could. I truely believe that anything is possible. For example the titanic was a unsinkable boat but it sunk.

  5. YES WE COULD HELP BUILD EARTHQUAKE BUILDINGS TO HELP PREVENT
    TRAGIC ACCIDENTS. ALSO WE COULD TRY TO HELP OUR OWN COUNTRY TO BUT WE ARNT IN AS MUCH AS POVERTY. AND WE HAVE MORE THINGS THAN OTHER PEOPLE IN POOR COUNTRIES. ALSO HELPING THEM IS RIGHT.

  6. I think it would be hard to find technology,and its expensive to help ,but you would have to build the city all over again.There are plates that can go under buildings.They can fit it later.

  7. ii feel dat tha tech. coulfn’t of helped us because earthquakes and tragedy lyk dat are notr controllable and it is not to us to stop them so there was no way we could of really stopped that.

  8. well i dnt think that we can control it kuz itz nature nobodyy kan stop it no matter how much technology we have. but i think that we dnt have this kind of response to our own people because it makes us look like were not selfishh. because we help our own people we just help other countries more because it gives us a good reputation. and i believe tht no matter how good of technology there is we will never be able to control earthquakes or anythingg!

  9. i think its because we have big walls in some deep ocean and it helps not to have floods. thats cool. thats a good technology. other countrys need that. thats a good idea.

  10. i think it is because. were busy with wars. were alaways busy. to stop it we could have cameras set up in the area. or we could montor every where.

  11. they can use some new tech. but i think its why we dont help each other. since hatti is poor we care more. plus we cant stop those things. its just part of nature.

  12. Um we have ok technology. We cant stop earthquakes and hurricanes and things like that from happening. I think we paid for Haiti because it was worse. The videos and pictures they showed made people really bad for them. I dont think we even had the money to give them. Not onlt people raised money but the government and them gave money to.

  13. Well I’m guessing people don’t help that much here because when you thing of the USA you think rich. So people don’t respond that fast. Also a hurricane can be seen coming while an earthquake can’t . The only place that constantly gets earthquakes in the USA is California. Although most of California’s buildings are earthquake proof. Well to today in 2010 we have no technology to prevent disasters. Although there is technology to weaken hurricanes and predict earthquakes but no way of preventing them. I’m guessing we will never have that kind of technology. Disasters happen naturally and for a reason I don’t think that they should be messed with.

  14. I think that we don’t go help other people because they just don’t care or they Haiti because of the bandwagon

  15. i do noT knoe of anyy Thinqg ThaT ckuLd heLp us ! maybe if we had beTTer pracTice. maybe if There was a hurricane . cause we do iT in schooLs. whyy noT do iT in acTuaL Life ? cause foriegn peopLe do noT know whaT To do !

  16. no. we may have good technogly but we don’t control the weather. earthquakes is a part of the earth without them it would not be right. Why should we stop them for no reason they are just a part of life. So no we don’t.

  17. I THANK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD RASE UP MUONY FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT HAD STUFF TO GO DOWNE.THAT IS BAND THAT THAY GOT THERE HOUSE AND PILDING DOWNE. LIKE WHEN WE HAD THAT DIG FLUD THAT TIME AND PEOPLE RASE UP MOUNY FOR US. SO WE NEED TO DO THE SAME THANKE FOR THIME. IT WOULD BE COOL THE EVERY BIDY ARE OUT THERE AND WORKING THERE BUTS OFF.

  18. I don’t think we have any control of the natural disasters. You can not stop or prevent nature. You can try but you will not, can not succeed. I bet only are ancestors have a chance.

  19. I think that if it came down to it we would all help at least one person out. I think it wouldn’t be as much help from among ourselves but i think there still will be some people helping each other out.

  20. The reason that we do not do enough to support ones within our own country as much as we do for other countries is most likely for the fact that when we hear about another country in distress, it is global news. Knowing this, much more people start to pay attention and help out with the relief efforts. Also, a large factor of why we did this was so that we could get a positive reputation for our country.

  21. no because we haven’t done anything to prevent this from happening. if we had this technology we would have done something to help prevent this from happening. but we havent done anything to prevent this. so that is why i don’t thank we have that technology.

  22. ~*i thinkk tht theree is somee kinddd of techonlygy to helpp to prevent eqarth quackes or to be perparesd whenn a earthh quackk acorress! and i think tht people helped haiti less and more than theyy did hurricane katriana beacuse they helped hurricanee katriana with cleaning upp the mess and savingg people and giving them cleann clothess butt i thinkk tht theyy helpedd hatit moree in moneyy thann theyy did hurricanee katriana!

  23. my dad said help us first! i agree. we have homeless people too. its fine to help a little but not $100 million. u.s.a could use that money. haiti could use help but not that much.

  24. i dont think we have the technolgy to keep from having diesters. well because we dont know what god has planned for us. like the 2012 thing. we dont knw if that’s going to happen. god has not warned us abotu so how we going to predict that. the reason i am saying we dont have the technogly to do this is because something can mess it up or break it. diesters could be so strong that it could put the whole earth in shook. that is what i think.
