On April 15, 2008, six students (aged 16 years) and one teacher (aged 29
years) from a New Zealand school lost their lives in a river canyoning tragedy.
The present study investigated the school principal’s perspective of how he led
his school through the tragedy, and the role of faith in the school’s coping.
The school principal was interviewed two years after the event. The school’s
Christian foundation was the fundamental source of strength and guidance for
the principal, as well as for students, staff, teachers, and families in the
immediate aftermath of the tragedy and in the two years following (i.e., to the
time of the present study), the Christian culture of the school guiding
decision-making. Support from outside the school (e.g. critical incident
support; teaching support from other schools; social support from community
agencies and civic leaders) also played an important role in assisting the
school through the tragedy, particularly in the immediate aftermath of the
event. Further studies are required that allow the voices of children, families
and school staff to be heard regarding leadership strategies that impact on
them through a disaster.

Men who attended a Bavarian General Medicine Practice were
confidentially invented here. Two male study groups were enrolled to characterize
adiposity or hypertriglyceridemia showing that these men were at baseline risk
for hypertension . Adverse alcohol consumption mediated dysfunction of
renal endothelium as shown here and before . This study found that alcohol
use aggravated dyslipidemia, fatty liver disease and critical fasting blood
glucose of obese men predicting then late hepatorenal disorders. Overall, two
male study groups showed a relevant proportion of men who reported alcohol consumption showing then critical morning urines indicating dysfunction of renal
endothelium. The present report looked also at healthy men who reported
positive lifestyle behaviour and at men with
nonalcohol adiposity and nonalcohol hypertriglyceridemia who then
showed normal morning urines indicating functional renal endothelium.
Relatively young men at risk were motivated to replace adverse alcohol use by
healthy liquids without alcohol and by higher quality of food.
survey employing the vertical electrical sounding (VES) was carried out in
parts of Onicha-Ugbo in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State
using Abem Terrameter SAS 300C together with SAS 2000 booster. The study was
carried out with the aim of delineating the subsurface geologic sequence
present in the study area, determining their geoelectrical parameters (layer
thicknesses and resistivities), and delineating the structural and
geomorphological features present beneath the subsurface. The results of the
survey suggest that the subsurface comprises of 5 - 6 layers and that clay and silt content varies
vertically and horizontally, thus influencing the apparent resistivity of the
area. The geoelectric section developed shows that the subsurface units are
dominantly sandy underlying loamy sandy topsoil which is relatively dry. The
depth to water table from the sites is above 150 m and suggests that
groundwater exploration is encouraging.
