This documentary illustrated "disastrous risk management" with real disasters in the last few decades from the perspective of neuroscience. The message of this documentary is that human can be trained to deal with disastrous situation. Train the people's mindset & people will know how to act when a disaster happens to them. Preferably, prevent disaster. Illustrations used in this documentary includes (1) 911 event in New York, (2) Tsunami in Thailand, (3) house fire, (4) government building being bombed, (5) flight hijacking, (6) truck accident, etc. This documentary should be viewed by students & employees (& the general public), for this documentary will teach them what "risk" in life means to them.
