Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Gets New Software To Better Track Emergencies
Ohio disaster officials have started using a new Web-based program to more efficiently track and respond to severe weather and other crises, and they’re giving counties access to the software.
The Ohio Emergency Management Agency began using WebEOC last year. Officials say the software makes it easier to assess damage, needs and available resources. They can also address problems more quickly. It consolidates information that was once exchanged in a more time-consuming jumble of phone calls, notes, faxes, emails or shouts across the room.
Some Ohio counties already use it. The state is giving others access this year. It’s starting with pilot efforts in Lucas, Ottawa and Union counties.
Some federal agencies also use the program. So do 37 other states, including Indiana, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
