The Ring of Fire: 25,000 miles of oceanic trenches, volcanic belts, and seismic plates circling the Pacific Ocean. Enough dormant power to reshape the world as we know it waits to be unleashed beneath the Earth’s crust. Until now.

In a matter of moments entire swaths of America’s west coast slide into the ocean. Los Angeles becomes a crumbling ghost town. Refugee camps are littered with flyers for missing loved ones. The city is a scene of utter devastation and despair. Within Hollywood the military quarantines Coldwater Canyon due to the extreme damage; however, suspicions are growing that this is not the true reason why.

Wes Harding is a FEMA field director who has stayed behind, searching the wreckage for bodies. He’s finding plenty of them, but many have an odd similarity: the ribcages have been sliced open – their respiratory systems meticulously removed. The only thing that’s clear is that something more is going on here.

With the help of dedicated activist Hannah Lonnegin and hippie scientist Dr. Bernard Dumas, Harding must get to the bottom of the mystery. Humanity hangs in the balance – and maybe more.

Alarm or alert detection remains an issue in various areas from nature, i.e. flooding, animals or earthquake, to software systems. Liveness, dynamicity, reactivity of alarm systems: how to ensure the warning information reach the right destination at the right moment and in the right location, still being relevant for the recipient, in spite of the various and successive filters of confidentiality, privacy, firewall policies, etc.? Also relevant in this context are to technical contingency issues: material failure, defect of connection, break of channels, independence of information routes and sources? Alarms with crowd media, (mis)information vs. rumours: how to make the distinction?

The prediction of natural disasters (floods, avalanches, etc.), health surveillance (affectionate fevers of cattle, pollution by pesticides, etc.), air, sea and land transport, or space surveillance to prevent Risks of collisions between orbital objects involve more and more actors within Information Systems, one of whose purposes is the dissemination of alerts. By expanding the capabilities and functionality of such national or international systems, social networks are playing a growing role in dissemination and sharing, eg. with the support of systems like the Google Alert (https://www.google.fr/alerts) which concerns the publication of contents online. Recently, the Twitter microblogging platform announced a broadcast service, designed to help government organizations with alerts to the public. The proper functioning of such systems depends on fundamental properties such as resilience, liveliness and responsiveness: any alert must absolutely reach the right recipient at the right time and in the right place, while remaining relevant to him, despite the various constraints. on the one hand to external events, such as hardware failures, connection faults, breaks in communication channels, on the other hand to confidentiality, such as the collection and use of personal data (with or without the consent of the user), or the disparity of access policies (generation according to industrial, technological, security constraints, management of internal / external policies, etc.) between actors. This book opens the discussion on the “procrastination”, the dynamics and the reactivity of the alert systems, but also the problems of confidentiality, filtering of information, and the means of distinguishing information and rumor.

  • Presents alarm or alert detection in all its aspects
  • Finds a solution so that the alert information reaches the right destination
  • Find relevance to various technical issues



Escaping the Giant Wave

The Worst Vacation Ever!
Thirteen-year-old Kyle thought spending a vacation on the Oregon coast with his family would be great. He’d never flown before, and he’d never seen the Pacific Ocean.
One evening Kyle is left in charge of his younger sister, BeeBee, while his parents attend an adults-only Salesman of the Year dinner on an elegant yacht.
Then the earthquake comes — starting a fire in their hotel! As Kyle and BeeBee fight their way out through smoke and flame, Kyle remembers the sign at the beach that said after an earthquake everyone should go uphill and inland, as far from the ocean as possible. Giant tsunami waves — three or four stories high can ride in from the sea and engulf anyone who doesn’t escape fast enough.
Kyle and BeeBee flee uphill as a tsunami crashes over the beach, the hotel, and the town. The giant wave charges straight up the hillside and through the woods where the children are running for their lives. The perfect vacation has become a nightmare! Somehow Kyle and BeeBee have to outwit nature’s fury and save themselves from tsunami terror.
