surrounding areas in September 2009, it was difficult to search people and rescue them to the evacuation areas. From that experience, Llave was inspired to build a rescue boat that can be used locally and show to the world that the Philippines can build world- class products. The Salamander took years to develop and revolved around the concept of a five-seater motorized tricycle with a sturdy hull and fiber glass body. It can function like a normal tricycle on land, and transforms into an amphibious vehicle once operated in a watery environment. Powered by a 250cc motorcycle engine, it can reach speeds of up to 80kph on land, and six knots in water with a full complement of six people including the driver. It can be controlled by a handlebar or a stick when it is running on water. The Salamander is a genius invention that can help solve one of the numbering problems of our country. It was designed and produced to help people overcome challenges we have during rainy-season especially in areas prone to flooding. It is costumed to the provided resources in the area, like it function of having two sources of power, fuel and battery and built with parts that helps withstand impacts or damages and can still maintain its buoyancy and stability.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
