Teaching the Sherpas

by Tom Markiewicz on March 9, 2005


I never thoughts about this before, but do Sherpas get any formal mountaineering training? Apparently, most of them do not. California State University, Sacramento professor Kevin Tatsugawa is trying to change that situation. He’s currently working to transform Nepali guides and porters into certified professionals through the Khumbu Climbing School in the Nepali village of Phortse. In addition, he’s working to form the Himalayan Rescue Association which aims to help climbers suffering from acute mountain sickness.

    I was thinking of starting a blog so I did some research into it on the internet and came across a lot of stuff that talks about legal issues and blogging. I’m not planning on blogging about controversial issues, (my blog would focus on posts about books, movies, culture, theater, music etc, and all material would be solely my own opinions) so what legal issues are involved with blogging? . Should I write a copyright disclaimer or are blog disclaimers actually worthless?.
