Etymologies are not definitions; they're explanations of what our words meant and how they sounded 600 or 2,000 years ago.
The dates beside a word indicate the earliest year for which there is a surviving written record of that word (in English, unless otherwise indicated).
Since this dictionary went up, it has benefited from the suggestions of dozens of people I have never met, from around the world.
Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication is the application of evidence-based principles to effectively communicate during emergencies.
These principles are used by public health professionals and public information officers to provide information that helps individuals, stakeholders, and entire communities make the best possible decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
CERC recognizes that during emergencies, we work under impossible time constraints and must accept the imperfect nature of our choices.
CERC draws from lessons learned during public health emergencies and research in the fields of public health and emergency risk communication.

Culturally, the older woman/younger man dynamic is perceived as an oddity, or a fluke.
