Title: DATA AS POWER
Movie ID: VT4000
Movie Number: 4000
Description: Information has become the key tool in the battle for survival and success, Fishermen and farmers sit in front of computer screens to learn where the fish are biting, the latest price of grain, and the harvest forecast. Computer imaging and printing have speeded up the dissemination of information; other processes disseminate information via satellite and fiberoptic lines as quickly as it is received. There is no data to suggest that people are understanding more--only that they are receiving more information. In the medical field computers offer the ability to match diseases with cures, and those in need of special treatment with those able to provide it.

"I love the fast pace environment, the people in the profession, and the adrenaline rush of running into a burning building or saving someone’s life," she says.

Rondeau chose Lake Superior State University because it offers the first accredited four-year fire science degree in the United States. She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
