I’m really stupid. I can tell you in advance. I think at heart, if I work at it, I can be smart. But at the moment I’m largely an idiot. I feel I have the right knowledge but I let a lot of stuff get in the way.
Last year, after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown, the Japanese parliament requested an independent report on the causes of the disaster. The 10 members of the report committee were not connected with the nuclear industry or the government bureaucracy and included distinguished scientists, doctors, lawyers, and even a science journalist. The resulting report , released this week, is damning. It was already more or less known that the disaster was at least in part caused by negligence on the part of the utility company TEPCO and the failure of government agents to enforce safety regulation, but the committee has had access to all of the documents and resources involved, and they write that even given the unusual force of the tsunami that struck the plant, had regulations been enforced, the nuclear meltdown would not have happened:
I walked into the high school wearing two guns and a bullet resistant vest. I had a rifle, six spare magazines, and a ballistic helmet stashed close by in my car. It was Wednesday, April 21 st 1999, the day after what had been the worst school shooting in United States history.

Officer Stacy Lim from the Los Angeles Police Department pulled into her driveway after an enjoyable evening of softball practice. When Lim got out of her personal car, she was immediately confronted by a group of gangbangers who had followed her with the intent of carjacking her vehicle. Her first response was to call out that she was a police officer. They responded by firing a .357 magnum round into her chest, which penetrated her heart, and blew a tennis ball-size exit wound out her back.
(NaturalNews) In the wake of violent storms, the power remains out today for millions of Americans across several U.S. states. Governors of Virginia, West Virginia and Ohio have declared a state of emergency. Over a dozen people are now confirmed dead, and millions are sweltering in blistering temperatures while having no air conditioning or refrigeration. As their frozen foods melt into processed goo, they're waking up to a few lessons that we would all be wise to remember. See some shocking photos of recent weather events, including a trampoline strung over power lines at: http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/shocking-images-follow-sup... Here are 10 hard lessons we're all learning (or re-learning, as the case may be) as we watch this situation unfold:
By Dave Hitt on Mar 31, 2010 in Featured , Police State What’s the best response when a cop asks you something? Silence, or a short, polite non-answer. Shut up.
Una crisi è l'evento che più di ogni altro mette alla prova le abilità di un comunicatore. Il dizionario della lingua italiana del professor De Mauro ne dà molteplici definizioni: 1. cambiamento improvviso, positivo o negativo, 2. manifestazione emotiva improvvisa e violenta, 3. situazione di grave incertezza, instabilità, difficoltà, 4. momento decisivo. Occupandomi da molti anni di comunicazione di crisi, trovo che queste sfumature di significato siano tutte utili a definire e a connotare i contorni ed i contenuti di una situazione di crisi.

Former Newsweek correspondent Nonny de la Peña has developed a 3D virtual reality simulation that recreates a real eyewitness account of a crisis in Los Angeles as people wait outside a food bank. ‘Hunger in Los Angeles’ was designed using gaming development tools and includes a body-tracking system. Users wear a head-mounted goggle display to fully immerse themselvesin the game where they can walk around and interact with other characters in real-time.
The running aground of the cruise ship Costa Concordia has so far meant the death of six passengers, with many also being injured. The reaction by Costa Cruises in its dealing with the press and the information released has caused a stir, not least the company's decision to issue a press release blaming the captain in full for the disaster. Adrian Johnson, managing director of PR and social media agency, Umpf who has handled crisis communications for a number of travel companies, discusses the communications strategy so far. The tragedy that unfolded on Friday night off the coast of Italy is a PR team’s worst nightmare. And that’s the trouble with crisis comms – there’s no predicting when they will strike, so no matter how prepared you are, they always take you by surprise.
We've all seen examples of social media eruptions burying companies in wave after wave of bad news. Amazingly, major corporations still struggle as often as not in their management of crises online. Sometimes, the corporations themselves make things worse. In today's social media-crazed world, a clear understanding and diligent implementation of damage control principles will make or break a company in its reaction to such a crisis. Having handled numerous crises for a few dozen companies over the years, I know firsthand how much heavy lifting is involved with the successful suppression of stories, let alone turning bad news into opportunities for favorable outcomes. The rise of social media has changed that calculus though, and has made what used to be regarded as successful crisis management seem almost archaic.
Is Crisis+ the Future?: Implementing Google+ in Crisis Communications (Benefits & Challenges) a wonderful publication of PRSA !! Some of you have had a hard time reaching the link, so her is the link again and the text: “It seems like the entire world (or social media world at that) is discussing the new launch of Google +, which is the social networking site that is the answer to Facebook. Some say that it is going to be the site that will transform how we search for information and how it truly encompasses the social life as we know it, but there are others that still say that there are some issues with the site that need to be explored further in development.
