"Our analyses of over 900 videotaped conflicts in our laboratory and over 1,000 play-by-play interviews about conflict at home have led us to the conclusion that most of the time most couples fight about what appears to be absolutely nothing." - John & Julie Gottman

"The Federal Communications Commission estimates that upwards of 70 percent of all emergency calls take place from a cell phone. Of those, 64 percent come from indoors, the report finds.

That's problematic because many phones today are impossible to find with the pinpoint accuracy that first-responders need to locate someone in a crisis."
Emergency responders often can’t find 911 callers on cell phones, and call centers are really upset about it.

About 38% of master's degree students at UA graduated last year. Interesting.
<p>Visit any college campus in spring and you are likely to see students frolicking in the sunshine, tossing Frisbees, sitting under trees reading or just playing hooky.</p>

Introduction
Brian Crisan is a part-time graduate student pursuing a master's degree in marriage and family therapy at the University of Akron   In December 2012, he graduated with a bachelor of science degree in emergency management and homeland security with a minor in fire protection technology.  Since 2004, he has worked as a public safety telecommunicator.  He briefly served as a volunteer firefighter and Nationally Registered emergency medical technician with a rural fire department in northeast Ohio.

He has attended conferences and classes all over the U.S., including: the annual IAEM conference three times (in San Antonio, Las Vegas, and Orlando), FDIC 2011 in Indianapolis, the APCO 2011 conference in Philadelphia, and a Technical Emergency Response Training class at the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama.  Locally, Brian has attended a number of courses on law enforcement related topics, including: hostage negotiation, domestic violence intervention, crisis/suicide intervention, Alzheimer's and dementia, homicide call analysis, deception detection, vehicle pursuits, and active shooting response.

He is a member of UA student chapter of the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) and served as the group's President from May 2012 to May 2013.  Under his leadership, IAEM earned the 2012 Chapter of the Year Award at the annual IAEM conference in Orlando, Florida.  Brian also wrote a proposal for a grant that was funded by IAEM for a zombie apocalypse-themed event and he wrote the winning nomination that earned the chapter's advisor, Dr. Robert M. Schwartz, the 2011 Chapter Advisor of the Year award.  As President, Brian led a few key initiatives, including: a focus on member recruitment and increased communication with chapter membership, a National Preparedness Month public education campaign, and the establishment of the chapter's social media presence.

Brian is also a member of The Cleveland Skeptics and UA's chapter of the Secular Student Alliance.  In 2012, Brian attended the Reason Rally and Skepticon 5 with the UA chapter of the Secular Student Alliance.  Brian was interviewed by the PBS show Religion and Ethics NewsWeekly about atheism and the secular movement's impact on politics.

Some of his favorite online media: Revision3's Diggnation, TWiT's Security Now!, This Week In Tech, Tech News Today, and The Tech Guy, and the CFI's Point of Inquiry.

An excellent place to visit if you're interested in firefighting and/or the history of Philadelphia. I'm an emergency management major and I'm always up for viewing such exhibits. Perhaps my only complaint is that the place is a tad bit too small for all of the items they have on display. Despite this, it's still a great little museum - well maintained and with a wide array of Philadelphia F.D. artifacts.

Gambling isn't much of my thing, which is why I was extremely happy to discover that this hotel features Penn and Teller's theater! I absolutely love Penn and Teller and their show did not disappoint! There are also a wide variety of dining choices in this hotel and the casino is pretty cool too. As far as the rooms are concerned, this hotel served my group well: we booked a double but had plenty of space for the four of us!

I was very disappointed with the food. The clams were unimpressive and the onion rings were terrible. The main course, a grilled chicken parmesan was, at least, halfway decent - but still nothing to brag about. I also got the distinct feeling that the waitress found me to be a bit bothersome even though I made no unusual requests (ex. drink refills, honey mustard, etc).

I've become a semi-regular customer here. The food is excellent, the interior is clean, and the staff is friendly. By far, one of the better Chinese food restaurants in the Akron area.
