    Well seismic activity – ways to help it down … disaster management …. engineers … architects who can plan EQ free cities … what not is lacking here …!

    There was a time some 8-9 yrs back when atleast a lil bit of NCC training was must … and I anticipated it so much by teh yr I reached Fsc it was already ended off … all such civil trainings for disaster recoveries should be emphasized … as well!

    Thanks to Yahya for forwarding the link … nice articles!

    yes yahya i did check that link…thanks alot for that:)

    in that article about the earthquake a professor said that in engineering universities there are no such subjects related to the earthquake managment and other related issues. it means that when a civil engineer start its job he does not know much about the new things except of what he/she studied in the books.

    i will definitely write about the NCC issue as i ahve to suffer alot because of it..yell u how in my article:)

    Ghalia I did NCC and still wonder why? If I had studied as hard as they made us parade in the college ground I could have many more marks than the 20 they promised us and which I never knew if I really got. You almost feel cheated in the end. I am sure hiking/jogging around Margala would be much pleasurable but just as healthy.

    the funny thing is that i have never done NCC as when i was in school i used to watch girls from our colleges doing it, as our school ground was quite big. i wanted to do it so badly.than when i entered in the college there was o such NCC thing offered. in the universities admission office ask for that certificate and i wonder where should i bring it from. it should either me compulsory or be banned. offering in some schoo;ls and not in other is not fair with the students.especially when marks are counted.

    what do u think?

    20 marks for a year worth of parade and sweat? I don’t think so. There must be an easier way to get those marks. :) I mean study instead.

    I guess those who did it regret it as well as those who didn’t.

    Oh, actually its two years worth of parade isn’t it? Even better case for not doing it.

    you are right but what if our education system donot give attention to this. in one way i think it is good to do it as all day long students get bored in thier classess listening to the lectures one after another. especially for girls who have no other activity to take part in.sighs!
