I discovered Mr. Rawles’ site a couple years ago, and you are correct! It is fantastic, but I am glad to learn about more sites, though I do visit SHTF often. Not strictly survival sites, but fantastic for financial/economic information, I highly recommend http://www.zerohedge.com and http://www.dollarcollapse.com and also for all the news that is fit (or not) to print, http://www.rense.com. There are not enough hours in the day for me to read all the wonderful information on the internet.

Scout your area. Though you shouldn’t move around too much, you should explore your immediate surrounds to find anything useful. You could find things someone left there before, be it a tin can or small lighter, it can be helpful significantly. Be sure you can always find your way back to your point zero as you search for water, shelter, or your way home.

If you are stranded in the middle of thick jungle, finding fresh, drinkable water can be a challenge. However, if you are vigilant and look for small clues and signs, you stand a better chance. Just observing what is around you can tell you a lot about the ecosystem of the area. For instance, watch the bird or insect activity or listen to the sounds of the jungle.

This is also the birthday of Howard Pyle (1853-1911) an influential American book illustrator, painter, and author. He was the mentor of many great American artists including Thornton Oakley, Frank E. Schoonover, Allen Tupper True, and of course N.C. Wyeth.

Don’t build a fire in an area where it is unsafe to do so. Your fire should be well away from flammable trees and brush, preferably in a clearing. Be careful with your fire. While you want to feed it, you shouldn’t overdo it. Consider the weather and other factors and remember, a forest fire is a lot harder to survive than just being lost!

After YouTube’s glaring censorship agenda set out to silence those who question the establishment, many have transitioned to a platform where their speech is not politically censored.  One such man is now disarming the climate change agenda and his DTube video is throwing all kinds of wrenches in the cogs of the propaganda machine.

How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It has 14 chapters and three appendices, 336 pages, ISBN 978-0-452-29583-4. September 2009. First Printing (September 2009): 20,000 copies. Second Printing (October 2009): 6,000 copies. Third Printing (October 2009): 25,000 copies. An unabridged audiobook edition is also available (ISBN 978-1441830593), produced by Brilliance Audiobooks. It was narrated by Dick Hill. As of March 2011, there were 132,000 copies of the book in print, and it had gone through 11 printings.[49] As of April 2012, there were 12 foreign publishing contracts in place to produce editions in 11 languages,[50] and the book was still in Amazon.com’s Top 250 titles, overall.[51] The German edition, Überleben in der Krise was translated by Angelika Unterreiner and published in 2011 by Kopp Verlag.[52][53] The French edition, Fin du Monde: Comment survivre? was translated by Antony Angrand. It was released in September 2012.[54][55] The Spanish edition: Cómo Sobrevivir al Fin del Mundo tal Como lo Conocemos was translated by Juan Carlos Ruiz Franco in Spain and Javier Medrano in the United States. It was released in April 2012.[56][57] A Romanian translation (Ghid De Supravietuir) from Editura Paralela 45 in Bucharest was released in November 2013. It was translated by Ioan Es. Pop, a well-known Romanian poet, political figure, translator, and academic.[58][59]

Survival models can be usefully viewed as ordinary regression models in which the response variable is time. However, computing the likelihood function (needed for fitting parameters or making other kinds of inferences) is complicated by the censoring. The likelihood function for a survival model, in the presence of censored data, is formulated as follows. By definition the likelihood function is the conditional probability of the data given the parameters of the model. It is customary to assume that the data are independent given the parameters. Then the likelihood function is the product of the likelihood of each datum. It is convenient to partition the data into four categories: uncensored, left censored, right censored, and interval censored. These are denoted unc., l.c., r.c., and i.c. in the equation below.

Another level in some preparedness plans are Vehicle Kits. In some cases, supplies and equipment may be loaded into vehicle such as a van or truck with bicycle racks and an extra “reserve” gas tank. Some survivalists also carry a small (e.g., 250 cc) off-road-capable motorcycle in the van or truck.

Venous bleeding will be dark red, and treatment mimicking that of arterial bleeding is called for. Capillary bleeding, such as a small scrape, is minor. So slap a Band-Aid (or handkerchief) on it and stop your whining.

We as humans have developed an unsettling dependence on technology for everything. Think about it, name a thing in your house that you can actually make from scratch. I bet you can’t! We live in a culture where we just buy things that we need. We are so coddled that a simple problem like a power outage leaves us in a frenzy.

Forti continued, “In reality, a backpack full of camping gear is simply a large ‘survival kit’ designed for a comfortable and extended stay in the wilderness. A much smaller version of this might consist of a tobacco tin with relatively few items tightly packed in.”

I understand that you’re going to expand the tools listing…may I suggest you research either homesteading sites or sustainability sites because without the tools to plant, harvest, and store their garden produce and the seeds (either saved or in form of a survival seed cache) necessary to replenish their food stores, a lot of people will be in trouble after that first year or two or three on their own passes. Not to mention the learning curve and the skills needed for those activities.

You’re much less likely to need the heat generation survival gear if you live in a desert state or a place that typically does not get cooler weather. That being said, this type of gear can still be helpful in case of climate change or especially cold nights.

I’ve been watching posts and attempting to keep track of how things are going in the CA north bay — they’re in need of LOTS of help and probably will be for a while.

Hey Abdul, thanks for that. That’s a good read but I don’t think that business they talk about was SurvivalLife. I think it was simply a product they bought which then they integrated with SurvivalLife or it gave them the inspiration for SurvivalLife. I could be wrong I don’t know the ins and outs of it.

I ordered the free knife knowing going in that is was just a lure to get you to buy something else. When I saw the offer for a second free knife, I knew that is was a catch. If you bother to read anything else, it tells you that you are also going to be in their club and there was a monthly fee. I clicked on no thanks and got my free knife with no problems, and it is good for what it is.

As we discussed above, staying warm is your priority. Adding insulation to your clothing is always a welcome idea. Dry leaves on the floor of the woods make excellent insulators. All you need to do is stuff them into your jacket. They form an insulating layer between your body and the outside cold air, trapping your body heat.

Most everyone loves fire. Fire is essential in a wilderness survival situation for a few reasons. One, it provides warmth which keeps body temperature up. Two, it provides heat used to purify water. It also provides light, heat to cook food, and serves as a center to draw people in. Earth based wisdom teaches us that fire is a spirit unto itself, and encourages us to have a good relationship with fire. I know that despite my passion for it, I didn’t truly appreciate fire until it took me four days to get it with a fully primitive bow and drill fire making kit on my first wilderness survival solo.

Mini survival kits or Altoids tin survival kits are small kits that contain a few basic survival tools. These kits often include a small compass, waterproof matches, minimum fishing tackle, large plastic bag, small candle, jigsaw blade, craft knife or scalpel blade, and/or a safety pin/s. Pre-packaged survival kits may also include instructions in survival techniques, including fire-starting or first aid methods. In addition, parachute cord can be wrapped around the tin. The parachute cord can be used for setting up an emergency shelter or snaring small animals. They are designed to fit within a container roughly the size of a mint tin.

For shelter, you may use sticks and really wide and big leaves to build a foundation of a shelter. Also you can use a big blanket or tarpaulin to put around the sticks and leaves. For safe food in the woods you can eat, blackberries, dandelions, asparagus, elderberries, gooseberries, mulberries, pecans, hazelnuts, walnuts, acorns, hickory nuts, clovers, red clovers and many more. See further How to find Wild Edible Plants for more details.

“overlevende overlevingsuitrusting win-vrij overlevingsuitrusting”

In deze precaire context konden de eerste mensengroepen zich onzes inziens weinig intra-sekse competitie en inter-sekse vijandigheid veroorloven. Het zoeken van voedsel primeerde vermoedelijk op de reproductie en in dat voedsel zoeken waren mannen relatief egalitair en vrouwen ook, en bovendien ook mannen versus vrouwen en omgekeerd. Zeker bij de jacht was rechtstreekse samenwerking onontbeerlijk. In de oorsprongssituatie was het uitgesloten dat een solitaire jager op zijn eentje buit kon binnenhalen. Het is dus mogelijk dat de vormen van competitie en agressiviteit die we bij mensapen veelal aantreffen bij de hominiden enigszins tot beduidend getemperd waren. Bovendien stelde de befaamde antropoloog en bio-archeoloog Clark Spencer Larsen vast dat het seksueel dimorfisme (de fysieke verschillen tussen mannen en vrouwen) bij onze Afrikaanse voorouders, met name bij de Australopithecus afarensis (3,8 à 2,8 miljoen jaar geleden; skeletten gevonden in Ethiopië, de bekendste is de ophefmakende Lucy), veel minder uitgesproken waren dan voorheen algemeen werd aangenomen. De mannen waren nauwelijks groter dan vrouwen (15% verschil zoals bij ons). Gering seksueel dimorfisme betekent doorgaans minder intra-seksuele competitiviteit en meer coöperatie zowel binnen als tussen de geslachten. Zoals we reeds hebben aangehaald, is er bij primaten een duidelijke correlatie tussen dimorfisme en competitie en rivaliteit tussen mannen. Groepsselectie kan dus zeker hebben gewerkt: mensengroepen waar de leden coöperatief met elkaar omgingen, hadden in de precaire situatie waarin deze groepen zich bevonden, een evolutionair voordeel op groepen die door hun competitie en interne rivaliteit een soort collectieve zelfmoord pleegden. De groepssamenwerking was nodig zowel voor de jacht als voor de bescherming tegen andere stammen of tegen roofdieren. Coöperatieve groepen hadden dus een evolutionair voordeel op groepen van zelfzuchtigen en wedijveraars. Binnen dergelijke groepen konden vrouwen voor hulp bij de kinderzorg beroep doen op omzeggens alle vrouwen, zij het vooral hun directe verwanten: mogelijk zoogden jonge moeders elkanders kinderen. Vrouwen speelden dus gemakkelijk allo-ouder voor elkanders kinderen. Dit hangt ongetwijfeld ook samen met het gegeven dat in de eerste verwantschapsstelsels omwille van de seksuele ongeregeldheid (in een eerste fase alleen incestverbod tussen de generaties, tussen ‘vader’ en ‘dochter’ en tussen ‘moeder’ en ‘zoon’ dus) alle vrouwen van eenzelfde generatie zusters waren en alle vrouwen van de oudere generatie moeders (en analoog voor mannen). Die bijna onmiddellijke verwantschap met elkaar hield ook duidelijk zekere plichten in. En de vrouwen konden ook rekenen op alle mannen, zowel directe verwanten als minder directe verwanten, voor bescherming tegen indringers, want de bedreiging van die indringers trof eigenlijk steeds het geheel van de groep. We moeten goed beseffen dat de leden van de heel eerste mensengroepen ook biologisch allen min of meer verwant waren met elkaar.
Op de achterplecht van de Queen of Spades vindt een overleg plaats tussen drie kapiteins. In de namiddag hebben ze Madeira-wijn zitten drinken in de schaduw van grote ronde parasols. Nu begint de zon onder te gaan en zijn kaarsen bijgezet op ijzeren standaards.

Verweerde koppen, stulpend en wrattig als overdekt met zeepokken. Het schaduwspel verhult niet, maar benadrukt slechts hun inborst.

We zitten met de natuurkunde vandaag op een punt waar we tegende grenzen aanlopen van wat we ons kunnen voorstellen, als we er al nietvoorbij zijn.Maken we de sprong naar de ontwikkeling van het management enbekijken we de afgelopen 30 jaar, dan stellen we eenzelfde patroon vast.Sinds organisaties industriële vormen hebben aangenomen, zijn we zebeginnen bestuderen. We hebben ons hiervoor heel sterk laten inspire-ren door Newton. Een bedrijf is immers ook een stukje habitat, waaromzouden we de natuurkundige wetten van actie en reactie, van zwaarte-kracht en deeltjes niet op ons bedrijfsbeleid toepassen? We kunnenbedrijven in deeltjes opsplitsen en de aantrekkings- of afstotingskrachtbeschrijven. We spreken over oorzaken en gevolgen, die via een uniekerelatie met elkaar verbonden zijn, als we die relatie vinden. Aanvankelijkwas deze aanpak zowel succesvol als onschuldig. Machines en goederenzijn inderdaad materie en zo mag Newton zijn werk doen. Later begon-nen we ons ook op mensen te concentreren. Mensen als human resour-ces. Daar hebben we het weer. De oplossingen voor al dat ‘mensengedoe’zochten we bij de psychologie en later de sociologie, de antropologie. Deopleidingen in humanresourcesmanagement hebben dan ook hun wiegstaan in de wereld van de psychologie. En hoe zit die ‘wetenschap’, als weze zo mogen betitelen, dan in elkaar? Welaan, de psychologie, wat aan-vankelijk een niche van de filosofie was, zocht haar eigen identiteit,scheurde zich af en zocht haar heil in, wat had u gedacht, de natuurwe-tenschap. Menselijk gedrag werd geanalyseerd. We gingen op zoek naarde elementaire deeltjes die het gedrag van mensen bepaalden. We zoch-ten naar basiswetten en opnieuw, tot op zekere hoogte, waren we hierinsuccesvol. De mens is immers een stukje natuur. Een hoop cellen,samengehouden in een lichaam, wandelend door de straat. DeNewtoniaanse natuurwetten zijn ook op de materiële kant van de mensvan toepassing. En met de laatste ontwikkelingen inzake neuroweten-schappen, waarbij we middels allerlei scanningmethodes zoals de fMRI,onze hersenactiviteit zichtbaar kunnen maken, besluiten we blijkbaardat de niet-materiële kant van de mens, zijn gedrag, zijn bewustzijn, zichook Newtoniaans gedraagt. Maar klopt dit wel? Mogen we besluiten datons bewustzijn, ons gemoed, onze emotie enkel wat chemische activiteitis, wat neurotransmitters, die ook de atomaire Newtondans uitvoeren? 15
‘Weet ik.’ Gaetan nam een slok, bleef nog even stil en zei toen: ‘De laatste jaren is er minder interesse in de oude manier. Met alle nieuwe technologieën is het niet zo belastend meer voor het milieu. Voor de bestuursleden is het niet praktisch genoeg en steeds meer mensen geven ze gelijk.’ Hij hief zijn fles naar de hemel. ‘We moeten het verleden laten rusten, zeggen ze. Leven in het heden en altijd met onze blik op de toekomst gericht!’ Zijn arm verstijfde en met rode wangen vermeed hij de blik van Samuel.
‘Dit is tijdverspilling,’ zei de jongen. ‘Binnen een paar jaar herinneren we ons precies hoe het allemaal moet, de meesten onder ons toch.’ Hij keek ostentatief naar een tafel in de hoek van het leslokaal, waar Erwin zich focuste op het beeldje dat voor hem stond. Het leek er niet op dat hij luisterde, toch kon Samuel zien dat de jongen krampachtig slikte en zijn kaken opeenklemde.
‘Dit deel van de wereld is er nog relatief goed afge­komen,’ vertelde Harrald. ‘De grootmachten uit die tijd hebben ook nucleair vuur gebruikt. Via de radio heb ik gehoord over bizarre mutaties in de Russische bossen, soms gruwelijk, maar soms ook handig. Uit Amerika hebben we niets meer gehoord.’
Zohra knipte haar hoofdlamp uit. Lieven deed het­zelfde. Nu kwam het erop aan om geen fouten te maken. Geen bruuske bewegingen, geen geluid. Samen slopen ze de laatste trappen op. Zohra omklemde haar glazen machete met beide handen. Ze voelde de randen door haar trui in haar handpalm snijden, maar schonk geen aandacht aan de pijn. Onoplettendheid kon dodelijk zijn in deze fase.
Dingen moeten in orde worden gebracht, men moet samenwerken. Hierom wordt men geconfronteerd met de deskundigheid van anderen. Niet begrijpend het waarom en hoe van ieders positie en plicht, volgen moeilijkheden. Bij gevolg raken veel mensen teleurgesteld en vervreemd. Zonder instemming en overeenstemming ondernemen mensen ongekwalificeerde actie en vermindert de algemene levenskwaliteit in een meer en meer chaotische samenleving. In deze situatie ontwikkelen mensen uit frustratie weerzin tegen autoriteit, in het bijzonder tussen generaties, en begint autocratische macht te heersen met onrecht en opstandigheid jegens de anderen. Terwille van orde kan men niet zeggen dat de ene regel beter is dan de andere. Er is konflikt over zeggenschap en men kan niet kiezen tussen vechten tegen en vechten tegen. Iedere kant geeft hetzelfde probleem. Dus is er geen andere oplossing dan toevlucht te zoeken in het onpersoonlijke. Geen persoon geeft uitkomst behalve de volwassen persoon voor zichzelf, de diverse autoriteiten geïnternaliseerd hebbende. Hij kan niet zichzelf voorstaan als de oplossing maar hij kan de slotsom van de leringen voorstaan. Jezelf voorop stellen leidt onvermijdelijk tot het bewijs van de eigen onvolkomenheid en beperkingen. Je wenden tot het onpersoonlijke is dan de enige resterende praktijk die in feite bestaat uit positieve identificaties met het persoonlijke. Wat van belang is is je niet te keren tegen anderen, niet een ketter of wat dan ook te worden, maar om overtuigd te zijn van je eigen orde. Men kan kritisch zijn over andere vormen van orde maar met het constructieve voorstel van het eigene is dit hanteerbaar.

Om te verwijzen naar die vormloosheid en naar de geheimzinnige, onkenbare en onherkenbare kracht die ergens in haar moet schuilen, hanteren mensen diverse woorden en namen. Die zijn gemakkelijk inwisselbaar en we gebruiken ze soms nogal lukraak dooreen. Zelfs in de kringen van de Oude Grieken circuleerden reeds meerdere aanduidingen en omschrijvingen. Doorgaans gaan onze gedachten dan naar de Griekse mythologie, die ons vertelt over de metamorfose van de “chaos” tot een “kosmos”, een soort goddelijk/menselijke operatie gerealiseerd door een of de demiurg (de “werker voor het volk”; dèmos=volk + ergon=werk) op een vormloze “chaos”. “Chaos” staat in onze woordenboeken doorgaans omschreven in termen als de “ongevormde massa vóór de schepping van de wereld”. Maar etymologisch staat het Oudgriekse woord khaos voor zoiets als een “gapende leegte”, een “kloof of afgrond die als een leegte wijd open gaapt”. Het heeft een indogermaanse (“Proto-Indo-Europese”, luidt het tegenwoordig) taalwortel die ook teruggevonden kan worden in de synonieme Griekse werkwoorden khainein en khaskein, met als betekenis: “de mond wijd openen, gapen of geeuwen”. De chaos is m.a.w. een gat, een “zwart gat” als het ware. En die chaos werd door de demiurg omgevormd tot een “kosmos”, een “versierde chaos”. De demiurg heeft de wereld sier en tier bezorgd, hij heeft haar getooid, opgetuigd en opgesmukt. De demiurg heeft het ongeordende en het vormloze een gelaat gegeven – “sier” betekent etymologisch ”(vriendelijk) gelaat” en onze term “cosmetica” is een neologisme dat rechtstreeks van het Griekse “kosmos” is afgeleid. Het Griekse “chaos” valt samen met ons Nederlands ietwat ongebruikelijk woord “baaierd” (warboel, wanorde), dat in een paar historische Bijbelvertalingen werd aangewend als vertaling van het Hebreeuwse woord “tohu”, de lege, braakliggende of woeste aarde vóór de Schepping, zoals dat in Genesis maar ook elders in de Bijbel voorkomt. Sommige Oudgriekse filosofen hanteren ook graag het begrip “apeiron”, dit is het Onbepaalde, het Oneindige of het Onbegrensde. Het woord betekent eigenlijk “dat wat niet omsloten of begrensd is en daardoor dus eindeloos is”, met dezelfde wortel als het woord “peirar”, dat staat voor een touw of een strik waarmee iets omsloten en begrensd wordt. Mogelijk hadden deze filosofen zoiets als een oorspronkelijk uitgestrekt, open, onbewerkt en onbewoond landschap voor ogen dat met behulp van hulpmiddelen als touwen en palen werd opgedeeld in aparte percelen, kavels of erven die ter verbouwing aan afzonderlijke huishoudens van de stam werden toegewezen, nadat die stam van een nomadisch op een meer sedentair, “(pre-)stedelijk” bestaan was overgestapt.
Mijn god.. wat goed verwoord. Ik onderga dezelfde ervaring wanneer ik in gezelschap zit en naar de dansende benen kijk. pas veel later naar de gezichten of die bij de dansende benen passen. haha.. en dan die diepgang. Grandioos. Doei, ellen
De psychologe staarde hem aan alsof ze naar een krankzinnige keek. Samuel glimlachte nog eens naar haar en zei: ‘Een gedicht dat ik geschre­ven heb voor een goede vriend van me. Hij heeft me jarenlang wijs­gemaakt dat poëzie louterend kan zijn. Geen idee of het zo is, maar ik ben nog maar net begonnen natuurlijk.’ Hij hief zijn tas op zijn rug en verliet de kamer. De tas, gevuld met kleding en foto’s, die zwaar op zijn rug woog toen hij in Weerzel kwam, leek nu vederlicht.
Vooral in Europa lijken de politieke partijen nog niet eens verder te kijken dan hun neus lang is. Geen enkele partij , van welke signatuur ook, heeft een programma dat manifest bestaat uit een toekomstvisie, een doel op (half)lange termijn plus een overgangsprogramma om dat doel te bereiken en die toekomst waar te maken. En zeker huivert iedereen bij de gedachte dat de Mens het in zijn/haar hoofd zou halen om God te spelen. Er mag dan worden gelachen met de paus maar als hij waarschuwt voor de menselijke hoogmoed, knikt iedereen instemmend.
Deze regel heeft betrekking op de werkelijkheid van het eeuwige principe der soberheid. Vrede kan er alleen zijn met tevredenheid: wees gelukkig met wat je bent en hebt, verlang niet naar nog meer. Niettemin zet de evolutie aan tot een hogere, zeg meer gecompliceerde, staat. Deze schijnbare tegenstrijdigheid wordt begrepen vanuit de noodzaak niet te verdringen; de assertieregel die stelt dat iedere verdediging van het eigen belang niet ten koste mag gaan van anderen. Dienovereenkomstig mag de evolutie niet ten koste gaan van wat voorheen bestond. Van een zich ontwikkelende foetus leren we dat in de mens alle voorgaande stadia van de evolutie nog steeds behouden zijn. Van een amoebe ontwikkelen we ons tot een volledig aangepaste homo sapiens die niet stopt bij het vis of reptiel zijn. In de psychoanalyse wordt het mislukken van een gezonde evolutie gekend als verdringing terwijl het spirituele de persoonlijke emancipatie benadrukt vóór een collectieve omwenteling. De economie benadrukt het idee van een gerechte competitie sociaal-darwinistisch zijnde: hoewel het geen spijt heeft van verdringing en monopolie is het niettemin de overtuiging dat wedijver nodig is om te komen tot de best mogelijke dienstbaarheid. Het probleem van de economie in het bijzonder en de mensheid in het algemeen is, voor zover het het de waarde van de soberheid of het delen betreft, de neiging om te gokken; te speculeren op een uitkomst. Zoals eerder uitgelegd is in de misvatting van materiëel gewin het idee van het winnen vervat dat indicatief is voor de werkelijkheid van de overtreding. De speculant verdedigt niet, maar valt aan. Hij steekt zijn geld, energie en vermogen in het bouwen van luchtkastelen met als enig mogelijke werkelijke levensuitkomst de behoefte aan alsmaar meer. Dit definiëert het verlangen vóór de dienstbaarheid en haar schaduw van agressie (oorlog) vóór aanvaarding van dienstbaarheid (vrede). Daarom staat soberheid en de uitkomst van het delen ervan bekend als een basisprincipe of eeuwige waarde van de ziel met behulp waarvan men speculatie en gokken uit de weg gaat (afb.). In tegenstelling tot het vermijden van speculatie voor een uitkomst is er de speculatie ten gunste van de ziel: het definiëert intuïtie, inspiratie, het zesde zintuig, metafysische kennis, de intelligentie van het mededogen, de liefde van God en de wijsheid van de heilige geest. Zonder deze speculatie kon niemand een idee hebben van zijn oorspronkelijke aard. Strevend naar dienstbaarheid bestaat de missie van de zelfverwerkelijking eruit de authentieke relatie bloot te leggen, de eeuwige aard van de individuele ziel. Psychologen definiëren het, niet speculerend over de mogelijkheid van wedergeboorte, als de identiteit gevormd in positieve identificatie  
67. 65 6. Hoe werk je als therapeut aan herstel in de partnerrelatie? Voor het werken aan herstel vanuit EPT is het ten eerste belangrijk te weten en te benoemen wat een gezonde partnerrelatie is. Zoals eer- der al is genoemd, is het belangrijk dat de partners gelijkwaardig zijn en een volwassen relatie met elkaar hebben. Een relatie waarin de zorg voor zichzelf zowel als de zorg voor de partner serieus genomen wordt (+Z, +A). Dat individuele verschillen in wensen, gevoelens en verlangens worden gerespecteerd, betekent niet dat ze van elkaar ook geaccepteerd wor- den. Door strijd en overleg hierover verdiept de relatie. Als ervarings- gerichte therapeut kijk je naar de interactie, het proces tussen de partners. Als therapeut dien je als voorbeeld: hoe geef je persoonlijk leiding aan een gesprek? Het is goed om als therapeut een eigen visie op de cliënt en zijn probleem te hebben. Je moet goed zicht hebben op datgene wat de cliënt in moeilijkheden heeft gebracht, en wat er nodig is voor de cliënt om daar weer uit te komen. Daarbij is het van belang dat je concreet te weten komt wat zijn probleem is. Zo kun je vervolgens een eigen visie ontwikkelen op basis van je eigen hypotheses en conclusies. Je zoekt als therapeut naar de verschillen tussen de cliënt en jezelf in een aantal aspecten: • tussen wat de cliënt waarneemt en wat je zelf waarneemt; • tussen wat de cliënt ervaart en wat je zelf ervaart; • tussen wat de cliënt denkt en wat je zelf denkt; • Tussen wat de cliënt vindt en wat je zelf vindt.
Laura fronste. ‘Zielig doen? Mijn man heeft verdomme net zelfmoord gepleegd! Moet ik dan vrolijk door het leven verder dansen? U weet niet waar u het over heeft.’ Ze stond op en wilde zich omdraaien om de winkel uit te lopen, maar de stem van Natsuko hield haar tegen.
Hoi meis, wat een naar en triest verhaal . Ik heb vorig jaar mijn Dober moeten laten inslapen en ik dacht eerst dat mijn manneke gewoon door zou gaan voor mij en dat was ook een kleine week zo. Ik kwam s’middags thuis van een klein stukje wandelen en hij ging liggen met een blik in zijn ogen van baasje, het hoeft van mij niet meer, ik ben er nu aan toe, dat was voor mij het seintje om de dierenarts te bellen.
Wat betreft het winnen en verliezen met een spel is het belangrijkste om te onthouden niet je ziel te verliezen; niet het gewetensvolle op te geven. Willen winnen, maar het spirituele bederven mag je weliswaar materiële macht of een positie bezorgen, maar in feite is de essentie verloren. De verliezers zijn de kankeraars: corrumperend valt men voor de verleiding van de bedwelming met een winstmotief, het karakter bedervend met illegitieme praktijken. Daarom is niet de materiële uitkomst beslissend maar de ervaring van het spel zelf: in feite houdt het levensspel nooit op hoewel het voortdurend van vorm veranderd; b.v. deze generatie is bang voor sex, terwijl de voorgaande er bovenmatig positief over kon zijn. Beiden hebben een gebrek aan goede regulatie of planning van formele bevrijding en kultuur gemeen. Essentiëel voor de vooruitgang hierin is het afzwakken van het winstmotief: geld en dergelijke is niet werkelijk zo belangrijk als eenmaal bekend is met wie men te maken heeft en wat de mogelijkheden van spenderen en verdienen zijn. De kwaliteit van de speler en het spel is van belang, niet zozeer de hoeveelheid spelers of de winst die dat zou opleveren. Hieruit kan het belang worden afgeleid van het opwaarderen van de formele structuur van de samenleving en op die wijze bekrachtigen van de kwaliteiten van de daarbij betrokken mensen.

Veel natuurbeschermingsprogramma’s die tot doel hebben wildreservaten op te richten, ontkennen de landrechten van de inheemse stammen. Deze worden verdreven naar de grenzen van hun grondgebied; de Batwa-pygmeeën werden gedwongen verplaatst uit Oeganda’s Bwindi Forest om de berggorilla’s te beschermen.
Zohra deed een poging om op te staan. Ze wankelde. De wond aan de zijkant van haar hoofd pulseerde in een scherp, brandend ritme. Ze legde haar hand erop en voelde dat het bloed gedeeltelijk gestold was. Ze had meer geluk gehad dan Lieven. Het moest een afscham­per geweest zijn, voldoende om haar bewuste­loos te slaan, maar niet hard genoeg om haar te vermoorden. Toen Zohra eenmaal stevig op haar benen stond en haar ogen een beetje aan het schemerduister begonnen te wennen, drong het panorama van de verdorven stad tot haar door. Alles leek heel ver weg.
Ik had hem er eindelijk van kunnen overtuigen me Sighile te noemen, in plaats van mijnheer. Zelf noemde ik hem echter nog altijd Ezel, maar nu op een aange­name manier. Op een samenzweerderige manier. Op een manier die zei dat ik hem eigenlijk wel mocht, en maar deed alsof dat niet zo was, om anderen voor de gek te houden.
Edward Teach op vrijersvoeten. Hij heeft zijn woeste zwarte baard uitgekamd en in drie punten verdeeld, elk vastgezet met een gestrikt kleurig lint, zodat zijn baard de vorken van een drietand vormt, een symbolische daad die niet alleen zijn aangeboren ijdelheid bevredigt maar ook de goedkeuring van de zeegoden kan wegdragen. Hij bespren­kelt zich rijkelijk met reukwater en wikkelt een sjaal rond de littekens in zijn nek. In de wakende landen hadden zijn tegenstanders hem door­stoken, ze hadden zijn hoofd afgehakt en het aan de haren aan de boeg­spriet van zijn buitgemaakte galjoen geknoopt.
Reeds als kind, puber en aankomende adolescent verloor ik me in de meest uiteenlopende belangstellingen, nieuwsgierig als ik was naar het hoe en waarom van al dat mysterieus dat zich rondom me en in mijn eigen lijf en gemoed afspeelde. Daarbij kreeg ik om de haverklap te maken met onverenigbare of elkaar tegensprekende gegevens of visies, die me toch alle even aantrekkelijk of plausibel overkwamen. Veel van deze interessedomeinen of thema’s verwezen ook naar elkaar, anderen leken dan weer geïsoleerd te staan. Wanneer ik bijvoorbeeld de namen van landen met hun hoofdstad en hun staatshoofd leerde kennen, doken automatisch links op met wat ik reeds over deze landen gelezen of te horen had gekregen, bijvoorbeeld met de ophefmakende feiten of problematische toestanden zoals deze in het “nieuws” op de radio of in de krant werden of waren aangekaart.
Ik zie wat jongeren, even fanatiek mee doen en dat doet mij hoop geven, want ook dat is iets wat wij niet moeten vergeten, ook bij de jonge Indische mensen bestaat blijkbaar de behoefte voor het bij elkaar komen.

Sleeping on the ground will cause you to lose body heat faster, making it more likely for you to get cold. Sleeping on a poncho or a really thin blanket isn’t going to help this either. The best way to do this is to stack up leaves or logs to make a padded bed. Alternatively, you can bring a hammock with you and just set it up when you sleep.

Fernando “Ferfal” Aguirre is unique in the sense that he has lived it (and is still living it). Easily pulling in our number 8 spot, Surviving in Argentina is about one man’s experience in a post economic-collapsed country and how he has had to adapt to the challenges and changes that came about. His insights provide a great model whereby many North Americans (and Europeans) can prepare for an impending economic collapse on their own soil.

CBS’s Survivor has become one of the most watched television shows in America. One of the reasons for this show’s success is that there is an adventurer in all of us and since we all cannot be in a survival situation we like to live vicariously through the people on the show.

It is exactly what it sounds like! If it is dark already and you don’t have time to look for an alternative, find a bunch of leaves and twigs and make a mound of sorts. It should be about 2 feet high and as long as your height. Once the pile is assembled, you can crawl under it. It is a natural sleeping bag that will keep you warm.

It’s a massive list for those who’d like to check their own self-made kits off in comparison to something comprehensive – to see if there’s anything they’ve missed that they may have wanted to take if only they’d remembered it.

I love the story of the man, lost in the woods, who freaked out and began running, desperately looking for a way out. With his senses literally clouded by fear, he actually ran right across a road back into the woods to ultimately meet his death. This is certainly an extreme case, but it makes the point.

Conservatives and their Libertarian allies are developing legislative majorities in several state capitols. Precinct by precinct, American Redoubt adherents are gaining the helms of Republican Party committees. Slates of quite conservative Republican candidates are winning at the county and State levels to displace the RINO Old Guard. Ditto for school boards, city councils, and county commissions. Outspokenly pro-gun and pro-life folks are getting elected as county sheriffs.

Things can get frustrating when it comes to finding adequate sources of food when you are in survival mode, especially since malnutrition will work you mentally and physically, making you feel weak, cranky and delirious. It’s a good idea to get familiar with edible wild berries and plants for future reference when out in the wild. Also, it’s time to grow up and banish the word  “picky” from your vocabulary. When it comes to survival, embrace anything and everything (carefully) including bugs, eggs, fruit, leaves. Learn to build some simple traps to catch small animals and don’t rely on just one single food source. Protein is important for strength; know what various nutrients your body needs for prime sustainability.

I understand it’s not the same business model as TIWIB, but the numbers just don’t add up in my head.

It turns out that many of us have some serious misconceptions of what it’s really like to live through a martial law situation. I asked Selco, who has personally been through it, to clear up the myths and tell us what it’s actually like.

Well, it wasn’t long before I found out the hard way that I needed to pack & carry several extra sets of slingshot bands. Why? Because when one breaks you can’t repair’em by tying the two broken ends together, you have to replace the whole damn band. And if you don’t have a backup latex slingshot band, you’re screwed. That sucks!

As the probability of an individual surviving until age t or later is S(t), by definition, the expected number of survivors at age t out of an initial population of n newborns is n × S(t), assuming the same survival function for all individuals. Thus the expected proportion of survivors is S(t). If the survival of different individuals is independent, the number of survivors at age t has a binomial distribution with parameters n and S(t), and the variance of the proportion of survivors is S(t) × (1-S(t))/n.

However, this often overlooked piece of gear has many survival uses. There’s no good excuse not to include a survival bandana in your survival gear. Survival bananas are a high utility and little weight survival tool. Get one.

Please support liberty-minded and fiscally conservative candidates. If you feel convicted to do so, then run for office. I encourage Redoubters to get involved politically at the city, county, party precinct, and state levels. This is truly a grassroots movement.

Scissors. Yes, they are on your multitool. No, they do not work! They really don’t work on the small tools except for the Leatherman Micra. Try it. Scissors are the reason I have sent three Gerber tools on a short brutal trip to the trash can. The test most fail first is to cut a 1 oz bag of Planters peanuts lengthwise. IMHO, the one in your first aid/ med kit should stay dedicated to that purpose. Get another for the other camp chores. They don’t have to be huge, but they do have to work.

The only drawback is the multi charges for the enrollment fees. Each one you buy in automatically opts you in for more. so having a program that checks on the multi enrollment fees would be nice. Thank you again and keep up the great offers!

If you are stranded in the middle of thick jungle, finding fresh, drinkable water can be a challenge. However, if you are vigilant and look for small clues and signs, you stand a better chance. Just observing what is around you can tell you a lot about the ecosystem of the area. For instance, watch the bird or insect activity or listen to the sounds of the jungle.

If you’re suffering from hypothermia, bubble wrap can save your life. Who would have guessed? Apparently, the air bubbles in the packing material create an insulating shield that bounces back body heat to keep a person warm. In one study, it was found that a sheet of bubble wrap was about seventy percent as effective as three cotton blankets for insulating a person—and since it’s made out of plastic, it was even more effective in the wind and rain.

I’ve had unbearable physical and emotional pain in my life. I lived through a life threatening illness, was bullied as a child, survived divorce and great financial problems. I worked hard to change things and find a solution. I knew things would work out because whenever I took action to get relief something good always came out of it.

I have purchased several knives from survival life. The first knife I got, someone liked it better than I did and I was not a happy camper. I have given the knives to coworkers and each person likes them as much as I do! They are very sturdy, and well made. The smaller multi-tool is a great little get me out of trouble helper. The fire starters are going to be some stocking stuffers. The fire and fishing grenades are also neat. I will continue to purchase them when offered, even when the wife says that I have too many knives and toys.

In order to help alleviate some of these stresses and better inform current and prospective international postdocs, the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) has created an online resource, the Survival Guide for International Postdocs. The Survival Guide was compiled by members of the former International Postdoc Committee with the expert assistance of university international offices and postdoctoral offices, as well as an immigration attorney. It draws on the experiences of current and former postdocs who have traveled to the United States to do their postdoctoral training.

Not my personal “go to” weapon of choice, but I’m also not a tactical pen-wielding master. I’ve seen videos on tactical pens being used for self-defense, and they are lethal in the right set of hands.

As some of you may know, Cape Town is running out of water. The local government has quite literally stated that in less than 100 days, they may have to turn off the taps entirely and water will be rationed out at designated outposts. Here’s…

A Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates has offended a lot of Democrats with his powerful speech on guns that quickly went viral, raking in over 13 million Facebook views since Friday. Nick Freitas finally hit the nail on the head and told gun grabbers the truth, much to their discontent.

As a father of 3 small children, I have always tried to protect and provide for all their immediate and future necessities.  I could not come home and tell my kids there was no food on the shelves.  Now, I can sleep in peace having purchased years of emergency food! I love having the peace of mind, the feeling of being empowered– that my family and I are covered with the necessary emergency food, and survival supplies for the next 20 years at TODAY’S prices for what ever comes our way.

I enjoyed the read and you have some great content. I recently launched a blog where I review survival tools at: SummitGeneration.com if anybody would be interested in checking it out.

In The Existentialist’s Survival Guide, Gordon Marino, director of the Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College and boxing correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, recasts the practical takeaways existentialism offers for the twenty-first century. From negotiating angst, depression, despair, and death to practicing faith, morality, and love, Marino dispenses wisdom on how to face existence head-on while keeping our hearts intact, especially when the universe feels like it’s working against us and nothing seems to matter.

Although it is promoted as a survival-gear review site, The Survival Cache has such a great number of articles on preparedness and survival that brings it to our number 9 spot within top 10 blogs.

A bit of a luxury item in a survival scenario but drinking water out of your hands is not convenient. Plus, if you happen to have coffee, soup, or freeze-dried meals you’ll need a bowl or cup to eat these meals.

The leanest survival kits are stored in Altoids tins and the like, and they include just the bare backwoods essentials: matches, fire-starters, fishing line, a tiny compass, water purification tablets, a whistle, a small rescue mirror, and so on.

One of the most important tip to making a shelter is making a bed. Never sleep on the bare floor of the woods. You can make a bed of dry leaves by arranging them inside your shelter. The bed will prevent the heat from your body seeping into the cold forest ground.

I highly recommend the Biolite stove as an emergency cooking stove. It does not require anything but natural bio fuel such as pine cones, twigs and sticks. There is a battery that recharges while the fire is burning. This battery charges phones, runs a small light via USB port on device. Very useful if there is no way to charge your devices. There are also attachments that provide camp site lighting also recharged by the stove while burning. It is pricey but works like a charm, weight is very little and has a nice grill attachment for cooking meat or veggies. I don’t work for them just have had great experience with this flexible little stove.

– You mention a lighter, some sort of wind proof thing. They are cool, but they also take a special fluid to use, so you would have to carry that along on a forced hike, where as a standard old Bic will be good enough AND if the fluid does run out, you still have a bunch of sparks left from the flint in it. When I have people come to my bushcraft classes, they bring the strangest stuff, iron strikers and flint, bow drills… I break out my 59 cent Bic (in cammo though) and light my fire in about 10 seconds….

If you find yourself stuck in the wilderness during the winter, do not eat snow unless you fully melt and warm it first! If you eat snow your body temperature will drop and you risk hypothermia or death. An on-the-go method of warming snow is to place it in your water bottle and place that between your jacket and clothing.

Liberators: A Novel of the Coming Global Collapse is a contemporaneous sequel novel that parallels the events that occur in Patriots, Survivors, Founders, and Expatriates. It is the final novel in the series. This 416-page novel (the longest in the series) was released in October 2014.[42]

Duct tape is one of the simplest pieces of the tool in my survival kit. It may seem a simple thing, but it has helped me in many tricky situations. I never leave for a hike or a camp without it in my backpack.

This compass has it all and is very acurate compared with my other compasses I have in my boat and truck. The accessories tucked away within are really cool too. Very compact and a great addition to my survival gear kit.

Vaseline is pure petroleum jelly. If you have some Vaseline on your hands, you can make great fire starters (at over 400 °F or 200  . Just soak some cotton balls in Vaseline and keep them in a container. The cotton balls soaked in Vaseline burn quickly and for a long time.

As mentioned before, you can technically build your own shelter if you have the proper survival gear tools at hand. That being said, it’s always nice to get an upper hand on shelter, as it will also help you stay warm and dry in case of an emergency or survival situation.

I notice you have one of the Gerber BG knives pictured. I own several Gerber’s including one of the BG folders I received as a gift, it’s buried in the bottom of my Bug Out Bag. If I ever need it, it’ll be there but I don’t want anyone to think I’d advertise for that idiot Bear. I always have a 3″ folding trapper in my pocket and a KBAR USMC fighter in the BOB along with an older well warn Barlow. You can’t have too many good tools and a good knife is a great tool.

By this point you should be pretty confident that you have what it takes to survive in the wild—so let’s up the stakes. You’re not just trapped out in the wilderness, now; you’re behind enemy lines, and you have to survive without letting the enemy know where you are. Obviously a fire is out of the question—or is it? A Dakota fire hole might be just what you need.

The common stereotype that preppers are selfish, lone wolf hoarders who have given up on the world is just plain false. Some preppers even go as far as to say the reason they prep is to be able to help others. From our blog post covering the top motivations among liberal preppers, a leader from

Rawles believes that survivalists see a high of a coming societal meltdown and the need to prepare for the repercussions. He has said that the popular media has developed an incorrect far-right lunatic fringe image in part because of the actions of a radical few. He called this a distortion of the true message of survivalism. Unlike the handful of fringe proponents, Rawles focuses instead on family preparedness and personal freedom. He explais that the typical survivalist does not actually live in a rural area, but is rather a city dweller worried about the collapse of society who views the rural lifestyle as idyllic. He cautions that rural self-sufficiency actually involves a lot of hard work.[17] In 2009, he said: There’s so many people who are concerned about the economy that there’s a huge interest in preparedness, and it pretty much crosses all lines, social, economic, political and religious. There’s a steep learning curve going on right now.[1] In a December 2014 interview with The Economist magazine, Rawles described the survivalist movement as decentralized and full of people who value their privacy. He said: “You don’t want to be known as the guy who has 3-4 years’ supply of food in the basement. Because one day you could see it confiscated by the government or stolen by neighbours like hungry locusts.[18]

Multi-tools are nice, but sometimes a single dedicated tool can be necessary, especially for harder jobs. This survival hatchet by our boy Bear Grylls is just such a tool. Whether you’re chopping trees to build yourself a shelter or just need something to fight off whatever monsters live in the woods, this will save your life.

According to NASA, planet Earth is set for a terrifying close encounter with a “hazardous” monster asteroid the size of Buckingham Palace tomorrow. The size of this asteroid is still in question, but it won’t matter if it hits the Earth.

The general rule of thumb for survival food is that unless you’re 100 percent certain that it’s edible, don’t eat it. Do your research before you go – for example, Bear notes that every jungle in the world has palm nuts, an excellent source of calories an carbohydrates containing 81 calories and 15 grams of carbs. That’s the kind of information that could save your life. On a side note, here’s a clip of Bear just chilling with, well, the president of the United States – Watch: Barack Obama Eat A Chewed-Up Fish Carcass

Africa Studio/ShutterstockGrab an ice cube. If you rub an ice cube on the spot between your thumb and index finger, it sends cold signals to your brain, which in turn can tamp down the pain signals coming from your tooth. In one study, people who did this reduced their pain levels by 50 percent compared to people who rubbed the spot with no ice. You can also try one of these toothache remedies.

If you don’t have a lighter or any matches, you will have to start the fire by hand. If you find enough tinder (small material, such as dry grass, feathers or bark shavings, that burns easily) you can usually use the energy from the sun to start a fire with a magnifying glass, a lens from your glasses, a piece of broken glass, a cover to a watch or compass, or other clear, light-intensifying objects. It is very difficult to start a fire by friction; your best bet is to carry a variety of fire-starting implements.

I am sure that you must have seen those ugly looking rain ponchos. However, if you are heading out to camp or hunt, these seemingly simple things can add significant value to your kit. These ponchos can be used in several ways if a survival situation presents itself.

We’ve thought about doing a bug out bag guide so many times before it’d be impossible to count, but somehow in 4 years, still haven’t actually published one. The why comes down to the fact that, unlike comprehensive lists – like of all…

I enjoyed your article, made me consider a few things I hadn’t thought of. I know we live in different countries but #12 should be #1. The human race is ugly…period. I’ve seen it in Hurricane Katrina, Mt. Penetubo eruption and 27 months in combat in the middle east…You need weapons and a solid team of like minded people, otherwise your whole list of goodies gets taken away and you get killed or worse. In England…my first priority would be “borrowing” some real weapons from your military/police people, whether they like it or not…..here is the U.S. I already have that base well covered. In SHTF remember the “Golden Rule”…….”Do unto others BEFORE they do unto you”. Because they are going to try….thanks for the food for thought. Cary Kieffer

Reaching for a multi-tool is as easy as simply finding one with pliers, and a Phillips screw driver, right? Actually that’s wrong. A Phillips screw driver might come in handy on several occasions but there are a lot more screw head types that call for special fittings. These special fittings can quickly take parts off vehicles, remove hardware around locking mechanisms, and remove ventilation coverings. A good multi-tool is essential to urban survival, is made of stainless steel, and can withstand years’ of use. If you’re going to be anywhere near an urban environment, look, at the Swiss Tool Spirit Plus. Here’s a multi-tool with 38 functions, including a bit wrench with 6 bits (important for screw heads that a Phillips or standard screwdriver will not fit).

For the example data, the log-rank test for difference in survival gives a p-value of p=0.0653, indicating that the treatment groups do not differ significantly in survival, assuming an alpha level of 0.05. The sample size of 23 subjects is modest, so there is little power to detect differences between the treatment groups. The chi-squared test is based on asymptotic approximation, so the p-value should be regarded with caution for small sample sizes.

It doesn’t need to be a large, heavy knife in order to be important for survival. In order for it to be used in emergency situations, you must have it with you.

Some survival knives have a hollow handle which is filled with a waterproof survival kit with such necessities as waterproof matches and a compass.

A signal mirror can serve two vital survival purposes. First, a mirror can signal help to a rescue plan or helicopter. Using the power of the sun to shine a glare towards a rescue team is an excellent way to gain attention.

Another alternative is use an axe but since the objective is to build fires anyway, it doesn’t need to be perfectly chopped. However, if the wood material will be used for shelter building or creating other necessary pillars, using tools are a good idea. In fact, we put together a resource on how to make a survival shelter, given the popularity of this topic.

If you sleep downwind to the campfire, your whole shelter will soon start smelling like smoke and fire, and you don’t want that. Also, there is a chance that if the gusts are strong, a burning piece firewood can fly right into your shelter while you are asleep.​
