U.S. Nuclear Power Plants: What Distance Is Safe?

Given the the nuclear reactor meltdown disaster in Fukushima Japan, and the local area Fallout contamination that is now entering the food chain and water systems there, I have constructed a location map of the current (and decommissioned) nuclear power reactors in the United States. Without discussing For or Against nuclear power, it may be smarter and a better use of time to learn some lessons from what happened in Japan that led to the the Fukushima meltdown, and to consider the potential risk for those living in the U.S. near one of these reactors...

The Total Devastation of Everything That You Know

If you are an observer of the goings-on in the world and how the political, administrative and business elite operate, you have likely come to the conclusion that the whole situation is mind-boggling. Millions of hard working Americans and our counterparts around the world alike sit at the very brink of an unprecedented economic collapse orchestrated by the financial and economic machinations of the privileged  few. They speak of belt tightening, the need for sacrifices and often mandate extreme taxation, promising that these strategies will make...

Should Your Kids Know How to Bug Out…from School?

There are many alarming trends throughout the American public school system, and one of the most unsettling relates to “terror drills.” Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars wrote last week about “lockdown drills” run by the DHS: The Department of Homeland Security is expanding its operations by running unannounced school lockdown drills, another sign of the federal agency’s encroachment into more areas of Americans’ lives. “On Thursday, March 6, a team comprised of ten officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Essex County...

Urban Survival Tin

You can never be too prepared. But you can have gear that won’t help you for the situation you are in. I know this may sound elementary, but you would take hiking gear on a hike, and hunting gear on a hunt. So why should one ultra-compact kit be the end all for any situation? It can’t. This is why we have specific items that are appropriate for specific situations. I want to use the idea of a small survival tin for example. While there are some that contain fishing line, a compass, paracord, etc., this will be great for being stuck out...

NASA Predicts The End Of Western Civilization

Loving life? Well, lap it up because the days of driving around in comfy cars, feasting on fancy food and enjoying an air conditioner-cooled existence could be numbered. With rising population, depleting natural resources and stretching social divide, civilization could be facing collapse within the next few decades, according to a scientific study funded by NASA. And if you think this is a load of scaremongering, it’s happened before. Remember the Roman Empire? In the report conducted by applied mathematician Safa Motesharri, his “Human And...

Basics Of Using A Map Compass

Another skill we should discuss (which I have neglected to) is navigation. What good is going anywhere and not knowing your way around the land? Could you find yourself in a situation where you have gotten turned around and you are completely lost? Absolutely! This happens quite often and I know you don’t want to become a statistic. So let’s take a look at what you should have and know. First and foremost, a good basic map compass, such as the one here. Notice I said basic. If you do not have the experience with using one you may not...

Long Term Food Items

One of the biggest concerns people have with food storage is shelf life. After all, nobody wants to dip into their emergency food supply during real honest-to-goodness disaster and find that all of their “imperishable” goods have decomposed into brown sludge.
