The following five issues that have been received by the CUSEC in case of emergency management for future earthquake on the New Madrid fault line. It is said that half a loaf is better than no loaf.
In 1993, with USGS support and collaboration, the CUSEC State Geologists began a significant effort to map earthquake hazards. In 1995 they completed a regional soils map that can be used to locate areas likely to experience intense shaking in earthquakes. This was revised in 1999. In 2003-2004, the CUSEC State Geologists worked with the USGS to create an informative

Best Practices in Teaching Comprehension
The underlying mechanisms by which comprehension and knowledge acquisition occur are 'top-bottom' and 'bottom-up' technologies. Bottom-up or data driven activation of schema occurs when information on the page activates a certain low level schemata or feature detectors which in turn activate or instantiate a higher up sub schema or other higher up structure. In that processing manner,information…
