ABSTRACT: This research was undertaken to assess the extent social networks have been used to share disaster information by the students pursued Bachelor Degree of Arts in Environmental Disaster Management. To achieve the study objectives, data were collected from 120 students through questionnaire surveys, 5 key informants through direct interviews, 18 participants via focus group discussions, and field observations. Results have indicated that, the main types of social networks used by the students were WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Findings have also revealed that, these social networks were also used to share disaster information. Results have further stipulated that, 62.5% of the respondents revealed that, disaster information was moderately shared through social networks to students, parents/guardians and relatives. The study suggested that, there is a need for students who pursue disaster management program to use more social networks to share disaster information, improve internet networks which has been low, and raise awareness to students about the importance of social networks in sharing disaster information.

ABSTRACT: Quantum Computing employs quantum phenomenon such as superposition and entanglement for computing. A quantum computer is a device that physically realizes such computing technique. They are different from ordinary digital electronic computers based on transistors that are vastly used today in a sense that common digital computing requires the data to be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1), whereas quantum computation uses quantum bits, which can be in superposition of states. The field of quantum computing was initiated by the work of Paul Benioff and Yuri Manin in 1980, Richard Feynman in 1982, and David Deutsch in 1985. Quantum computers are incredibly powerful machines that take this new approach to processing information. As such they exploit complex and fascinating laws of nature that are always there, but usually remain hidden from view. By harnessing such natural behavior (of qubits), quantum computing can run new, complex algorithms to process information more holistically. They may one day lead to revolutionary breakthroughs in materials and drug discovery, the optimization of complex manmade systems, and artificial intelligence.
