Disasters, such as last year’s devastating tsunami, will hopefully be avoided in the future with the opening of the new Disaster Management Office.
Is this implying that setting up the office will prevent a tsunami? maybe i'm reading it wrongly perhaps. Most likely.
Or...unless it means that through the work of DMO, the "effects" of the disaster will be avoided as there will be a quicker response? umm me don't know...ahhh, thats right, because it wouldn't have been a disaster if people and livelihoods were not affected.
or maybe i need to get my head checked. sorry about the blabbering.
I like this editorial by Savea -
I can tell you now, If Stui can make it up that mountain, I will admire him, I will be his number one supporter and I will jump up and down, get me a monkey, bend at the knees, throw on my backpack, punch my fists and sing:
