"Dealing with Nature's Fury and Man-Made Crises" Is Topic for the July 30th KK! Talk Show @ 7:30 p.m. (RP Time) on DZRH -AM

 

Nature's fury, in the form of typhoons, floods, and other risky natural events, hits the Philippines several times a year. Whenever it happens, as in the disastrous visit of Typhoon Frank to the country, some Filipinos say it is an act of God.

 

Many natural risks are, indeed, acts of God that are beyond man's control. But an increasing number of them are now happening as a result of acts of man, such as pollution that contributes to global warming, which causes rise in sea level, flooding, and unnatural changes on earth.

 

In addition to these risks, Filipinos now have to cope with the oil crisis, rice crisis, food crisis, energy crisis, and other man-made crises.


Whether they are natural or man-made risks or crises, their adverse consequences are often controllable my man through effective risk/crisis/disaster (related words that are often used interchangeably) preparedness, management, and rehabilitation—at all levels—individual, community, and country.

 

Guests are Jose Rizal Awardee Francis Kong and TOWNS Awardee Dr. June Lopez. TOWNS Awardee Dr. Cora Claudio will join and moderate the discussion. Francis Kong is a business consultant, corporate trainer, and president of Funworks Inc. and who helps people rise above mediocrity and deal with difficult times.
