Description: Bestselling author, political adviser and social and ethical prophet Jeremy Rifkin investigates the evolution of empathy and the profound ways that it has shaped our development and our society. Particularly, he talks about an empathic embrace of the human race within 3 hours of the earthquake in Haiti.
Disasters affect many people in many countries. GRAIT-DM (Global Research on Applying Information Technology for Disaster Management) is an international collaborative effort. The multi-hazard research represented by LITMUS is an international collaboration with Japan, and a growing partnership with many countries affected by landslides such as Brazil, China, India, and Russia. Successful detection and prediction of multi-hazards will have significant human, social, and economic benefits with positive impact on the people around the world.
