    Greetings from Boston!

    Hi all!

    I'm pretty new to the forums and am an aspiring planner -- currently applying to planning school for fall 2010. My main interests are in transportation, environment/climate change, and disaster recovery.

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    You mentioned disaster recovery have you looked at the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado and their publications:

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
