Katlyn’s Private School has been using the ‘Triangle of Life’ as their Official Policy; since, 2009. They have shunned ‘duck and cover’.
Katlyn used a Wylie Shake Table and classroom desks to conduct her scientific test. Of course, as in reality; the Triangle of life was vastly more effective.
Many countries, that are not negatively impacted by the excessive greed of the Insurance Companies, support the ‘triangle of life’, as public policy.
Many private schools have been using the triangle of life, for years. Many USA and Canadian Public School Teachers, of conscience, have been teaching the ‘triangle of life, for years.
The noteworthy aspect of Katlyn’s Science project is that she was NOT doing the test to convince her school to adopt the triangle of life.
The purpose of her test was to create more proof so that more public schools who are forced to follow ‘duck and cover’ will change their policy to ‘the triangle of life’. (The insurance companies have actuarial determined that it is more profitable if the children die from ‘duck and cover; rather than, survive and seek compensation for injury or trauma.)
Katlyn felt sorry for the children whose lives are endangered because of greedy insurance companies; Public School Boards that consider it cheaper and less trouble if children die immediately because of duck and cover (school boards who have been told that their insurance policy will be dropped or premium increased if they adopt the triangle of life because more survivors mean more expense and less profit).
I applaud Katlyn for her efforts to help USA public children survive earthquakes; just like the children, in her school will.
Isn’t it always true that the wealthy survive; always get the best, and American Public Schools languish. It is truly sad that humanity and decency have been so diminished that school children’s lives are no more than an item on a risk manager’s actuarial table and their life means nothing compared to maximizing shareholder return.
As the German Philosopher Schopenhauer said, about the path of ALL Truth:” First it is ridiculed, secondly it is violently opposed and thirdly it is accepted as self evident.”
Now, that the elite, rich and well educated are using the ‘triangle of life’; How long will it be before the children of the middle class and poor will be allowed to be safe, protected and survive, too?
Go to other http://www.dougcopp.me blog articles for a mountain of videos, documents and read about other countries having saved thousands of lives via ‘ the triangle of life’.
Within minutes of posting this article George Quakenbush, an American Engineer living in Chile wrote to me. He said:”
I was in Concepcion, Chile last night and had several good tremors. That, of course, was the topic of conversion at breakfast and a young lady gave me the entire discourse on the triangle of life.
Congratulations, your info is finally getting out to the populaces of the many countries.
Hope this finds you in better health.”
Quake Alarm has been saving lives around the world, for 10 years. It has saved an entire school full of children, in Mexico, for less than $50. Only a few thousand, have been sold in the USA. Why are Americans so backward when it comes to earthquake safety? The School Boards are laying off teachers, risking childrenb’s lives to avoid higher earthquake premium’s for survivors, cutting down in every way. They won’t even spend $50 to give an entire school an advance warning of an earthquake wave approaching.

I was in Mexico, last month. The school playgrounds still have swings, tetter totters, and merry-go-rounds. USA Insurance Companies have forced School Boards to take children’s playgrounds away.
It is not good enough to take away children’s fun; they endanger children’s lives for ‘shareholder’ return, too. It takes a cruel and cold heart like a NAZI Death Camp guard to work for an American Insurance Company. The VP of Underwriting at Muchener-Re told us the same excuse that the death camp guards used:”My job is not to save lives. My job is to maximize shareholder return. If I was to change policy, to allow the ‘triangle of life’ to save children’s lives; then the Board would fire me and replace me with someone else. It would serve no purpose. I would only be replaced.”
