Audiobook: TERRORISM: TRAVEL SAFELY
TERRORISM: TRAVEL SAFELY
By Sarah Connor
This audiobook provides clear, simple, unambiguous advice which if followed will make your journey overseas less stressful and keep you out of harms way.
In a world where every day brings news of a new terrorist atrocity whether in an airport, on a train or bus or at a night spot, theatre, restaurant, market place, or tourist attraction, we must open our eyes and become aware of what is happening around us. Unfortunately these days if we are in public places we must be vigilant.
International terrorism remains a serious threat to British, European, and US nationals living or travelling overseas. Attacks can occur anywhere in the world, usually with little or no warning. Terrorist attacks abroad will continue to target western interests, including British, European, and US tourists, travelers and expatriates.
There is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK, European, and US interests and nationals from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria. Increasingly terrorists look for targets that aren’t well-protected places, and where westerners can be found. These include places like bars, restaurants, shops, places of worship, tourist sites and transport networks. Significant dates, anniversaries, public holidays, religious festivals and political events have been targeted.
The risk to aviation including at airports is clear from recent terrorist attacks. No country can give an absolute guarantee of security standards at its airports, but some airports may be less able to protect against terrorist attacks than others. The UK and its international partners continue to work closely with many countries, and with the aviation industry to reduce the threat, with additional security measures in place for direct flights to the UK and US where necessary.
How this short audio learning experience works:
This audio presentation has been designed using an experiential learning model, Kolb, D. A. (1984): concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation.
By taking this approach we hope to cater for all learning styles.
You will be given specific new information in the recording usually as “key tips”, “explanations” and “quotes”. You will be led through a gentle but positive meditative reflection process to assist you before conceptualisation and then putting your new skills into practice.
You will be encouraged to return to the recording from time to time to re-listen and reinforce your learning and the desired changes in your life.
