NOTICE News for February 10, 2023

On today’s NOTICE News: Preparations are underway for Super Bowl LVII where the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Philadelphia Eagles. We take a look. Plus: Our weekly NOTICE News quiz. Here’s a transcript of the show.

Discussion Questions

  1. Why do you think there is a Command Center running safety at the Super Bowl, rather than different agencies and organizations functioning separately?
  2. Why do you think drones are a particular concern for this weekend’s event, more so than in the past? What specific dangers could drones pose?
  3. Why might companies be willing to pay $7 million for just a 30-second slot of Super Bowl commercial airtime?
  4. Why would so many people be in need of shelter after the earthquake, and thus require aid beyond rescue efforts?

Writing Prompts

  1. The Super Bowl draws a massive audience, and it’s usually for multiple reasons in addition to the game itself.  What about the Super Bowl might draw such a large audience? What could be  some pros and cons to having something televised live to such a large audience?
  2. The millions in need of shelter is just one example of the extreme need in the aftermath of a natural disaster like an earthquake.  Imagine all the different needs survivors have in order to attempt to repair their lives.  What are some of those needs, and what types of organizations, agencies, or individuals would be most helpful to have on-hand to aid in the effort?
