Here are a few thesis statements that were drafted by our students. Remember that the introduction to the PLP can be several paragraphs and may describe a personal journey of discovery. The thesis statement goes at the end of that introduction and begins the more formal part of the paper. The American bullfrog is a very interesting animal that is fun to study and also makes a wonderful pet. My PLP will include information about its life growth, habitat, prey, predators, and reproduction , how the bullfrog evolved, the difference between the American bullfrog and the African Bullfrog, and information about keeping bullfrogs as pets.
Thesis Introduction About Disaster Preparedness
Cooperative Planning for Natural Disasters: Thesis Statement
Although natural disasters are caused by nature and there is nothing that we can do to prevent them happening, there are many different natural causes that lead to natural disasters, and being aware of these causes enables us to be better prepared when such disasters do arrive. One common natural disaster is flooding, which occurs when a river bursts its banks and the water spills out onto the floodplain. This is far more likely to happen when there is a great deal of heavy rain, so during very wet periods, flood warnings are often put in place. There are other risk factors for flooding too: steep-sided channels cause fast surface run-off, while a lack of vegetation or woodland to both break the flow of water and drink the water means that there is little to slow the floodwater down. Drainage basins of impermeable rock also cause the water to run faster over the surface.
Research Paper on Disaster Preparedness
Although the storm made landfall exactly where predicted near New Orleans, and the city was known to be vulnerable, the governmental response failed across the board. The way in which the various levels of government handled evacuation, shelter, and subsequent aid was slow, confused, and inefficient. The Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA has taken much of the blame, with critics pointing at its politicization under the Bush administration and its overemphasis on preventing terrorism, and also questioning its integration into the relatively new Department of Homeland Security. In addition, the cooperation between the various levels of government was poor, and the lack of leadership or a planned chain-of-command was also a crippling problem to the response. Cooperative Planning for Natural Disasters CPND will address these problems by creating an open forum where experts in related fields, as well as interested community members, can discuss appropriate measures for creating a more efficient response system.
The definition of natural disasters is any catastrophic event that is caused by nature or the natural processes of the earth. The severity of a disaster is measured in lives lost, economic loss, and the ability of the population to rebuild. Events that occur in unpopulated areas are not considered disasters.
