Our ancestors could spot natural predators from far by their silhouettes. Are we equally aware of the predators in the present-day? Drones are remote-controlled planes that can be used for anything from surveillance and deadly force, to rescue operations and scientific research. Most drones are used today by military powers for remote-controlled surveillance and attack, and their numbers are growing. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) predicted in 2012 that within 20 years there could be as many as 30.000 drones flying over U.S. Soil alone. As robotic birds will become commonplace in the near future, we should be prepared to identify them. This survival guide is an attempt to familiarise ourselves and future generations, with a changing technological environment.

CR123 batteries pack a lot of power in a small package, and the lithium ones have a shelf life of 10 years, which is why they’re up on the list. You can also purchase rechargeable ones (here, for example) that you can charge with your solar panel array. At the end of the day, 3.7 V will always be a lot more versatile than 1.2 V batteries because you can always lower current (make it dimmer), you can’t increase it (make it brighter). 900 lumens to the face is an extreme force multiplier.

  Can we end active shooter events? A mentally disturbed man entered a South Florida high school and killed at least 17 people with an AR-15 rifle. Nikolas Cruz was expelled from the school for erratic and violent behavior and was reported to have a…

Survival analysis is a branch of statistics for analyzing the expected duration of time until one or more events happen, such as death in biological organisms and failure in mechanical systems. This topic is called reliability theory or reliability analysis in engineering, duration analysis or duration modelling in economics, and event history analysis in sociology. Survival analysis attempts to answer questions such as: what is the proportion of a population which will survive past a certain time? Of those that survive, at what rate will they die or fail? Can multiple causes of death or failure be taken into account? How do particular circumstances or characteristics increase or decrease the probability of survival?

In this section of the website you will find an expanding library of information on wilderness survival tips and outdoor skills. Topics range from friction fires to shelter building, primitive cooking, flintknapping, and much more.

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.

In 1922, Great Britain instituted the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). The intent was to provide, “an informed and enlightened electorate”, via a modernized radio transmission system as a means to compete with outside influence.[1] By 1935, the British Ministry of Information added new, but classified, procedures to their directorate.[2] Additionally, alongside an enormous increase in cinema infrastructure, by 1940 the majority of the British populace tuned in on their radios for their daily dose of informative medication.[3] The British provide an example of a more democratic approach to propaganda policies.

Stay in one place. This not only increases your chances of being found, but also reduces the energy your body expends and the amount of water and food you will need. Hunker down and stay put. Chances are that someone will be looking for you, especially if you let someone know your plans. Also, if you’re with someone else, do not separate. Having strength in numbers will help you survive.

I’m always on a tight budget, so yes, much of my kit is recycled or repurposed. Always remember, you don’t have to go out and buy everything. Adapt, improvise, and overcome. The most beautiful trout I ever caught was caught on a fresh cut bit of bamboo about 4 feet long, dental floss, and improvised wooden fish hook with a beetle tied to it as bait. That beetle put up one hell of a fight. Dental floss is an excellent investment for bugging in or out. Besides the obvious use of dental hygeine, it’s very tough, cheap, compact and lightweight in it’s own little super convenient package, and can be used in any application where a bit of string would serve better than 550 cord/paracord. Can even be used to close wounds in a pinch, multiple strands can be braided together for applications requiring more tensile strength when 550 cord is unavailable, and can be woven into a net. I used some braided strands in Afghanistan as an improvised bootlace to serve my needs until I got back to my patrol base where my spare laces were stowed.

Rawles worked as an Associate Editor and Regional Editor (Western U.S.) with Defense Electronics magazine in the late 1980s and early 1990s[8] Concurrently he was Managing Editor of The International Countermeasures Handbook.[9]

Surviving in the wild — no matter the location or the time of year — depends more on human wit than the gear you have in your pack. But all survival experts still recommend assembling an emergency kit of equipment to stay with you at all times in the wilderness.

The water was the energy source. Again, just because something has one USE doesn’t mean you can’t use it for both or for whatever you want. Here, a solar powered pump, pumps water up into a storage tank up above its intended use. When needed a simple hand valve is then turned the water drains out of the tank, turning a generator and you have electricity…. (If you capture the draining water, you could use it repeatedly or to drink or shower etc)… I noted I’d come back to fuel (storage) tanks. A small gasoline powered generator is useless without gas. But, a Diesel one-if you could make bio-diesel, or with a flex fuel generator, using diesel or propane, could have a way to add a smaller portable tank… by installing one of those large propane tanks common on farms or in the Mid west even more options.

Survival kits, in a variety of sizes, contain supplies and tools to provide a survivor with basic shelter against the elements, help him or her to keep warm, meet basic health and first aid needs, provide food and water, signal to rescuers, and assist in finding the way back to help. Supplies in a survival kit normally contain a knife (often a Swiss army knife or a multi-tool), matches, tinder, first aid kit, bandana, fish hooks, sewing kit, and a flashlight.

At the push of a button, PLBs from companies like ACR Electronics Inc. transmit your position via GPS coordinates and the 406 MHz radio frequency to search-and-rescue centers, who may be able to then start a search process within minutes.

I am also quite pleased to see that the Citizens of the eastern half of Washington are making progress in constitutionally partitioning to become the State of Liberty. (A state boundary hasn’t been officially redrawn in the United States since West Virginia was Constitutionally partitioned from Virginia back in 1863. But the Liberty State movement is proceeding apace.) I hope that a similar effort gains steam, to partition eastern Oregon.

When it comes to the blogosphere there always seems to be a group of blogs, like individuals, that stand out from the crowd and provide great content and a lot of influence. In the survival and preparedness community this is no exception.

The null hypothesis for a log-rank test is that the groups have the same survival. The expected number of subjects surviving at each time point in each is adjusted for the number of subjects at risk in the groups at each event time. The log-rank test determines if the observed number of events in each group is significantly different from the expected number. The formal test is based on a chi-squared statistic. When the log-rank statistic is large, it is evidence for a difference in the survival times between the groups. The log-rank statistic approximately has a chi-squared distribution with one degree of freedom, and the p-value is calculated using the chi-squared distribution.

​It is always good to keep a hand sanitizer in your survival kit, or better, in your pocket. However, make sure that a sanitizer that is alcohol-free or the one that is foam based won’t work for this purpose.

The specifics of wilderness survival change a lot depending on what part of the world you’re trapped in. Knowing how to treat hypothermia is about as useful as a bag of malaria for a castaway in the tropics, but it’s the difference between life and death when you get locked in the meat cooler at work again. But one constant in nature is that you can almost always find a body of water—and if you have the know-how, this water means food.

About Blog – This Blog contains various articles relating to our impending doom, and hopefully will improve your your chances for surviving the coming apocalypse. While it is our hope that the articles that we provide will help you to survive when doomsday comes, there is no way that I can guarantee the outcome of following these tips.

Your job is to prevent any parasites in the animal bite from reaching the blood. Washing thoroughly can get rid of some pests reducing the parasite load. It gives your immune system a better chance to fight the infection.

In addition, the kits may contain typical individual survival kit items, such as nylon tarps, extra clothes and coats, blankets, sleeping bags, matches or other fire starting equipment, a compass and maps, flashlights, toilet paper, soap, a pocket knife and bowie knife, a fishing kit, a portable camping stove, a power inverter, backpack, paper and pencil, a signaling mirror, whistle, cable saw, bleach, insect repellent, magnifying glass, rope and nylon cord, pulleys, and a pistol and ammunition.

The constant fear mongering after every shooting has people pushed to two extremes.  The first group cowers in manufactured fear at the feet of the government demanding more ink on paper to protect them. The second group gear up to protect themselves.

Rawles is the Senior Editor of SurvivalBlog.com, a blog on survival and preparedness topics.[19] It has been described as the guiding light of the prepper movement[20] and the grandaddy of survival blogs.[21] He concentrates on encouraging family preparedness for many possible threats toward society.[22] In his various writings, Rawles has warned about socio-economic collapse,[23][24] pandemics,[25] X-class solar flares taking down power grids,[26] terrorist attacks,[27] and food shortages.

Is there no point going into the niche if you have competition from everyone buying that WSO and SurvivalLife who you can never really compete with. Probably even if you had the budget, which I def. don’t. I merely have enough to get a site up and buy that WSO but if that’s a waste then I’m scared.

What’s nice is you can get a collapsible one, and they weight nearly nothing and take up minimal space. I keep on in my backpack for my dog. He can drink out of a collapsible bowl but not straight out of a water bottle.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the must-haves in your expedition backpack, how to use everything from tech to trees to find your way, and the myriad of ways to create fire—without rubbing sticks together.

You can’t fit every worthy piece of equipment in a Top 10 list of survival gear. The following products get a notable mention for their effectiveness in a survival situation, ease of use, and for many of these, the price as well.

I too am using Home Depot orange buckets. Very good sealing gasketed lids and the price is right. I contacted the manufacturer and they assured me they are not food grade. My bags and oxygen absorbers arrive tomorrow, and it begins…..

But what if the times turn? What if you find yourself in a challenging situation, away from all your friends, gadgets and thingamajigs? What if you can’t just buy your way out? And what if your life depends on getting out of that bind? Do you think you have the skills, the know-how, the presence of mind to handle a situation like that?

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…

If you’re out of water and, crucially, still somewhat hydrated, drinking your own urine can keep you alive. This is because relatively clear urine will hydrate you, but if it’s brown and thick, it’s just waste and won’t help at all.

Real binoculars are for the wilderness. Get yourself a of real binoculars. Outdoor Life rated several binoculars, most coming in at over $1000, with one priced at $2700. That is steep! But Outdoor Life did give a high rating to a cheaper pair — The Alpen Apex XP 8×42 is priced at about $300 and received Outdoor Life’s Great Buy tag. If you have the money to spend, sure, go ahead and spend top dollar, buy the best of the best. You will get more bang for your buck. But you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck as well with the Alpen Apex 8×42 for a lot less.

The tiny house movement continues to gain momentum, and it’s not crazy-hard to understand why. While moving into a 200- square- foot home is a huge change if you’re used to living in a 1,000- or 2,000- square- foot residence, there are many benefits to tiny house living. If you are looking to seriously downsize, review why a tiny house might be exactly what you need.

Your list is pretty good and pretty comprehensive. However, it seems a bit all over the the map. Maybe some further breakdown of home/car/BOB would be in order. Right now, my home and car kits are good, but I’m browsing the web for ideas on more or better gear for my BOB. And as I’m browsing through your list I see…

There are a ton of plant species in the wilderness. Many of these plants have excellent medicinal properties. Crab apples, for instance, have an astringent effect that can help heal wounds. Pine resin has an excellent antiseptic property. If you can find eucalyptus leaves, you can burn them to get rid of mosquitoes and other bugs around your campsite.

Have you ever been on a hike admiring the great views, gazing up at the tips of the trees, listening to the rustling of the leaves… and suddenly found yourself completely alone and lost? Naturally, the situation would give way to some level of panic and concern for your safety. While being lost in the woods can be a frightening experience, surviving alone in the wild is generally a matter of common sense, patience, and wisely using the gifts that nature provides. If you want to know how to survive in the woods, just follow these steps.

Don’t get me wrong; it is entirely understandable! However, if you want to get out of the situation, you must rely on sound judgment. If you are agitated, overly anxious or panicking, your brain will not think properly.

This wilderness survival guide wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging this; hands down, skills are much more important than gear when it comes to wilderness survival. You can buy and collect all the best gear in the world, but what happens if you forget it? Or lose it? Or use it up? Then you’ll be relying on yourself – your skills. With that said, it is still good to learn about wilderness survival gear and put together a wilderness survival kit. Just don’t’ depend on it.

My personal EDC habits, especially in terms of how often I swap in and out the things I carry, have changed considerably over the years. I know there are many who like to change what they take out with them daily, but I’ve never been the type to change what I EDC very …

As we’ve covered in the past here on Listverse, there are approximately one billion ways you could die. Nuclear winter, the robopocalypse—heck, just a simple camping trip gone wrong could leave you trapped in the merciless grip of nature’s fury, with nothing but your own wits and the questionable advice of this list to get you out alive.

The most overwhelming side of being a creative (for me) is how to be realistic, professional, and run a business. Hearing and seeing the tools required to be successful is a huge weight of my shoulders. I would say that Survival Guide took away the unknown aspects of running a creative business that often paralyzed my growth. It has made me excited again to be an artist, and one that could make money and be happy.

Anyone new to precious metals must learn the differences between numismatic and bullion coins. Both have their purposes, for investors and for preppers. The values of bullion coins are based almost entirely on their precious metals content. Their melt value is tracked in real time in the global markets, all in terms of troy ounces. In contrast, numismatic coins have both melt value and collector’s value. Judging the market value of bullion coins is simple arithmetic. But the prices numismatics are far more difficult to gauge. This takes study of rarity and relative values, study of the science of coin grading, study of standard annual references, and consultation of current rare coin market prices in detailed publications such as the Grey Sheet and Blue Sheet. There are many complexities that I won’t delve into here in this brief essay. Just suffice it to say, the word complex is an understatement. My general advice is that unless you are willing to do considerable study, then skip rare coins altogether, and only buy bullion coins or pre-1965 non-numismatic “junk” U.S. circulated silver coins.

Why do we call it the ‘Survival Guide’? We’ve heard too many artists say they aren’t business-minded, yet understanding that you are a business is necessary to thrive in this industry. To thrive, you need to know how to survive in unfamiliar territory. Let’s admit, ‘being an artist’ and ‘savvy business’ are not strong associations. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We want to unpack all that it takes to create a solid business foundation, so we have created this workshop to give you the tools to not just survive, but thrive. Come ready to rack John’s brain with all of your pressing questions. He’s been at this for 16 years, and has built something pretty great – he’s ready to pass that on. Here is a small taste of what to expect.

An important application where interval-censored data arises is current status data, where an event T i {\displaystyle T_{i}} is known not to have occurred before an observation time and to have occurred before the next observation time.

I think survival means different things to different people. Sure, there is basic survival – will you live or die – but once those basic needs are met, survival can become something entirely different. The survival of your mental wellbeing and happiness can mean the difference between merely surviving and LIVING. I think we all have our unique and individual purpose in life, which is the element that makes life worth surviving. Once you can pinpoint exactly what the purpose is for you, you’ll know how each and every element of your life (your house, your family, your romantic relationships, your career) honor your highest purpose. I like to call this our over-arching goal and it’s our main focus when we design our lives. For example, mine is Happiness Creation. Everything I do in my life supports this goal, and if it doesn’t – I know it’s time for a change. If you need help figuring out what your over-arching goal might be, I’ve written about it more in-depth here: The Science to Designing a Supported & Purposeful Life.

I don’t know if this has been shared or not, but Penicillin and Amoxicillin should be included in the list of medicines, along with cephalosporin (Keflex). All of these I believe can still be found over the counter as farming supplies. Be careful, however, as the dosage for humans will be majorly different than that on the label. I would suggest getting a dosage chart for each antibiotic.

Sleeping out in the wildness can be rough, the ground is cold, bugs are frequent visitors, and rocks and dirt may not be the most comfortable of elements. So, welcome to the fabulous world of hammocks! Rock away to a gentle rest inside snuggly confines of this super plush hammock from Amok, which promises versatility as well as maximum comfort. This deluxe sleeping mechanism comes complete with an integrated bug net, bottle holder and belongings pocket.

These beautiful suspension sleeping devices are top of the line and will set you back a little over 300 for the new model! But hold on, you can find standard hammocks for as low as 20 or 30 if you find yourself on a budget.

Merely getting a survival bag and filling it with some equipment is not going to help you in your survival mission. Make sure that your bug out bag is properly organized so that you can rely on the gear to get you out of the tricky situation. Here are some tips to organize your bug out bag.

The SOL Origin redefines the survival kit from the ground up. In one product that fits in the palm of your hand, the Origin gives you the collection of tools you need to survive the unexpected and make it back alive. Think of it as the ultimate cross-breed of the traditional ‘ten essentials’ and a survival kit, all wrapped up in one lightweight, easy to carry, indestructible package. The heart of the Origin is its ABS-plastic waterproof case which contains an array of key survival tools, including Tinder-Quik fire starters, 150lb-test braided nylon cord, mil-spec stainless steel wire, and an emergency sewing and fishing kit. For those unfamiliar with wilderness survival, backcountry expert Buck Tilton’s survival instructions contain over 60 survival techniques and strategies. Integrated into the Origin’s lid is a flip-up Rescue Flash signal mirror with a retro-reflective aiming aid. Flip the case over and find the one-hand-operable Fire Lite sparker, a removable liquid-damped compass and, secured in a button-release slot, is a versatile folding lock-blade knife. This essential survival knife features a 100db rescue whistle, ultra-bright LED light integrated into the handle and an AUS-8 steel drop-point blade designed for the precision cutting you need during survival emergencies. Welcome to the future of survival – the Origin is mandatory equipment for any outdoor adventurer.

That pepper spray will only cover you for the first day or two, and it won’t help you from further than 10′ away. What if your attacker(s) are armed? They’ve probably got better range than your pepper spray (even if it’s in a super soaker), and you better believe once the starving starts, you need good old fashioned lead ventilation (or the viable threat of it) to hold off the hungry. A 22 is a start but it won’t end threats quickly unless you’re Chris Kyle’s second coming.

Beyond PLBs, Smith said a survival kit should include items like a map of the area, a compass, a space blanket, first aid, a flashlight or headlamp, and fire-starting supplies. He recommends keeping the essential stuff physically attached to your body in a pouch on your belt.

The home owner or purchaser. Should think of the following: Do I know anything about electrical design etc. Am I mechanically inclined? If your the handy kind. Keep that in mind. If not, then a system that requires a mechanic is not your first option, or second… Cost drivers on the typical system are the size (how big the system is- typically it is listed as Kw or Kilowatts. Second is Name branding, Third is the code or enforcement requirements (typically the place where errors are made, ie over sized, or needless options) and lastly Optional equipment. Fancy, re-mote start, or remote access (think internet capabilities) while these can be nice. If your not watching the bottom line, they can take money from really important items).

Yes, a good knife is a really great tool! The Gerber Bear Grylls knife I honestly sometimes think would be really popular in the community if it wasn’t for Bear Grylls name on it. Gets so much hate on it just for a name, which is a bit sad because in my opinion, it really is quite a good tool, especially as a practically overall survival kit. But yeah, glad you at least kept it in case you might one day want it/need it. I know many who would’ve returned it or thrown it away just cause of the name.
I learnt that different people have different dreams, their purpose of life might be to achieve those dreams. This might make them happy. Others find happiness in helping others or loving others. I’d say that we can let ours have our own purpose. Whatever makes us happy is our purpose.
We are so glad that our gear played a part in saving these heroic firefighters while they were out protecting our country and citizens. We are so grateful for all that they have done and continue to do for our safety!
As Survival Straps mentions in the owner’s manual, a brand new paracord strap will be quite rigid and stiff at first and will soften up over time with use. With the initial strap rigidity and the shackle style closure, it can be a bit tricky to put on this strap at first.
What about bugs? Elsewhere on the site I’ve recommended mosquito netting — using bobby pins (1) or Velcro and gorilla glue (2) or a heavy duty sewing needle and thread (3) you can hang mosquito netting over your entry way of any tarp shelter you build.
Almost all websites that generate over 1 million a month have clear business models where it’s obvious to see how they are generating their levels of income, especially if they are releasing data on their traffic and registered users. There shouldn’t be a question of “only his bank knows how much he’s really making” when you are at this level of revenue. A quick google search of survivallife did not bring me any forbes articles or legit websites praising them, all I found was articles questioning them, like I am now.

Glassdoor gives you an inside look at what it’s like to work at Survival Straps, including salaries, reviews, office photos, and more. This is the Survival Straps company profile. All content is posted anonymously by employees working at Survival Straps.
Work: Be prepared to shelter at work for least 24 hours. Your work kit should include food, water and other necessities like medicines, as well as comfortable walking shoes, stored in a “grab and go” case.
The suggestions for the kit looks great, however I think you need to get your basics together first, fire making, shelter, first aid, food, and water,for at least 3 days, then weigh your kit. Now see how many pounds are left before you hit your maximum load which is going to vary for each person. Remember if your buggin out this isn’t a Saturday afternoon hike in the park where after three hours or so you thrown your pack in the car and go home. It’s going to be with you day in and day out.
I think survival means different things to different people. Sure, there is basic survival – will you live or die – but once those basic needs are met, survival can become something entirely different. The survival of your mental wellbeing and happiness can mean the difference between “merely surviving” and LIVING. I think we all have our unique and individual purpose in life, which is the element that makes life worth surviving. Once you can pinpoint exactly what the purpose is for you, you’ll know how each and every element of your life (your house, your family, your romantic relationships, your career) honor your highest purpose. I like to call this our “over-arching goal” and it’s our main focus when we design our lives. For example, mine is Happiness Creation. Everything I do in my life supports this goal, and if it doesn’t – I know it’s time for a change. If you need help figuring out what your over-arching goal might be, I’ve written about it more in-depth here: The Science to Designing a Supported & Purposeful Life.

Tip: There is no guarantee you’ll be in an area prime for hunting — not unless you do your research first and know where to enter the wilderness so that your journey takes you through remote areas where game is plentiful.
Survival Power: Binoculars are never truly appreciated until a situation that calls for binoculars presents itself. Good binoculars can both aid in hunting and also be essential for long distance navigation by land or by boat (if you’re in a canoe or kayak for example and paddling along a coastline).

Made from type 3 paracord (550-seven strand) there is approximately 80 feet of cordage in each leash. The leash itself is 60 inches long from swivel to handle.

The technology, the bracelets and the claims have also reportedly been examined by a standards testing organization called Bureau Veritas. I called their Sacramento office but they didn’t know what I was talking about. They referred me to their Phoenix office. Ditto. Phoenix referred to a person in Buffalo. Why would the guy in Buffalo know about this, I asked the Phoenix person. “I don’t know,” he said, “I think he has something to do with sales.” In Buffalo, I reached voice mail and another dead end.
Over the past few years, especially, we get one to two stories a day, but one that stands out was from a soldier named James Little, who always wore two Survival Straps. He was a sniper in Iraq, and his hideout spot was taking fire from insurgents. He was hit in the leg with shrapnel, and was bleeding pretty badly, so he unraveled one strap and tied it around his leg to make a tourniquet, and then used his other one to tie up some of the rubble around him as more cover. He credited us to helping save his life while he was at war. We relay that message to all our craftsmen, that you don’t know who is going to be wearing that bracelet, so we are ridiculous with our quality.
The rest of your ideas are awesome! The olive oil in a jar though. Some of your suggestions seem to be more relevant to a bug out situation, whereas the jar of oil is not. Very useful tip for a bug in situation though! Personally, I have lamps and lamp oil in stock for home use, plus emergency candles in my BOB.
It never fails that when you need a knife or cutting instrument the most there’s never a pocket knife around to help you out. That’s why we created the highly-effective, razor sharp, multipurpose credit card knife. At about the thickness of 2 credit cards, it is the ultimate portable knife.
The thought of something “disastrous” happening scares us all. However, the reality is, there is a chance that each of us could be involved in some kind of disaster or emergency. Services such as water, electric, gas, and telephones may be cut off. In the event of a large disaster, emergency personnel will be too busy helping those in need of immediate medical and rescue attention, and unable to assist you.
Recently, Erika sent in this incredible Survival Story about her firefighter boyfriend and his partner while they were trying to control a house fire. They were in a quite an unpredictable situation and needed to escape fast. She wrote:
Indeed, if you’re lost or injured, the right gear can mean the difference between a comfortable night spent outdoors and a cold one. Items like a whistle or a signal mirror can alter fate to issue rescue instead of abandonment.

Another rule that I would suggest to all of you is that you can live without thinking for three seconds! It means it takes about three seconds to do something dumb that is horrible enough to get you killed if you are thinking right! So, stay calm and don’t do anything without putting some thought into it.

The U.S. Army Survival 21-76 Field Manual suggests a steady diet of locust, ants, termites and grasshoppers when food is scarce. Grasshoppers should be cooked, and be sure to remove their barbed legs that could get lodged in your throat. (Broccoli doesn’t sound so bad anymore, does it, kids?)

It is a good idea to wear them on a regular basis especially if you are camping or going for a road trip. They may not be ideal to wear every day on your day job, but they sure are worth the investment.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Stacey Lippel is speaking out about what – or, more specifically, who – she saw shooting up the school on that fateful Valentine’s Day. Lippel says the shooter was in “full metal garb” which is in stark contrast to the image (above) of the alleged shooter that the mainstream media continues to show us.

These three methods are asymptotically equivalent. For large enough N, they will give similar results. For small N, they may differ somewhat. The last row, Score (logrank) test is the result for the log-rank test, with p=0.011, the same result as the log-rank test, because the log-rank test is a special case a Cox PH regression. The Likelihood ratio test has better behavior for small sample sizes, so it is generally preferred.

I say no.   The bag is sealed, and the only real reason for the bucket is to physically protect the thin bag.  I use Home Depot orange buckets.  I probably wouldn’t use a bucket that held some really toxic substance, but that’s it.   The only difference in the food grade and non food grade NEW buckets is the mold release agent isn’t FDA approved for food.  That’s it.    Again, with sealed mylar, I just don’t see a problem.

It’s basically two pits dug side-by-side in the ground with a tunnel connecting them. The fire is in one pit, and the other pit allows air—and oxygen—to reach the fire from below via the tunnel. From a practical standpoint, this is also an ideal way to keep a fire going in very windy conditions—but you can still pretend you’re hiding out from murderous cannibals, if you want.

Build a fire. Build a good-sized fire with sufficient coals to stay hot for many hours, and make sure that you have plenty of extra dry wood. Start the fire before you think you need it, even if the weather is warm; fires are easier to make under easy conditions than in a panic as the sun sets – to say nothing of the fact that having a fire nearby will give you a sense of comfort and safety as you get your bearings.

The last observation (11), at 161 weeks, is censored. Censoring indicates that the patient did not have an event (no recurrence of aml cancer). Another subject, observation 3, was censored at 13 weeks (indicated by status=0). This subject was only in the study for 13 weeks, and the aml cancer did not recur during those 13 weeks. It is possible that this patient was enrolled near the end of the study, so that they could only be observed for 13 weeks. It is also possible that the patient was enrolled early in the study, but was lost to follow up or withdrew from the study. The table shows that other subjects were censored at 16, 28, and 45 weeks (observations 17, 6, and 9 with status=0). The remaining subjects all experienced events (recurrence of aml cancer) while in the study. The question of interest is whether recurrence occurs later in maintained patients than in non-maintained patients.

The North Star always points to true north, which is great for when you don’t have a compass at night or when you want to check the accuracy of the compass you have. Try looking for the big dipper first, which is easy to find if you know your constellations. Then draw an imaginary straight line through the edges of the big dipper and this will lead you to the tail of the little dipper. This is the North Star.

GA Mom….You said “make sure you have a good seal”….I assume that you’re talking bout the mylar bag prior to sealing the lid ? And you recommend waiting and checking the bag after a day before putting on the lid?

Thank you for this, it’s great. We’re going to be putting together a first aid/medical kit list sometime in the future, and I’ll definitely take that first list into account when we get around to posting that. It’ll be really helpful.

If you only remember one thing from this wilderness survival guide, it’s this: The #1 wilderness survival priority is maintaining a calm center. Keeping your head on your shoulders. Staying cool. Sustaining a positive mental attitude.

Acorns and oak bark have excellent medicinal properties to heal gastrointestinal problems. If you can find some acorns and oak bark, just boil it in water for 5 minutes and drink the concoction. It will help you fight diarrhea and other gastro-intestinal issues.

Any clue as to how much this would all weigh, should one have to carry the items on thier backs? This is a fairly large list, and some of the items could be this, OR this, OR this… A few things to add or coment about:

If you’re stocking a cabin, cave, or bug-out spot with purification tablets, you certainly want to consider the lifespan of the product. The iodine tablets from Potable Aqua have an indefinite shelf life, when kept in their original packaging and stored properly; Katadyn’s Micropur tablets last for two years or more.

Survivors: A Novel of the Coming Collapse is a contemporaneous sequel novel that parallels the events that occur in Patriots, following a hyperinflationary socioeconomic collapse and the subsequent events known as The Crunch. The novel follows several new characters (and some characters from Patriots) as they attempt to survive in the United States following The Crunch as they deal with criminal gangs, a provisional American government, and the general breakdown of society. The book was released on 4 October 2011. It rose to #2 in Amazon’s overall book sales ranks, the same day. On 23 October 2011, it was listed at #3 in the New York Times Best Sellers list in the fiction hardback category.[3] Less than a month after publication, the novel had gone through four printings and had 52,500 copies in print.[39] A Spanish edition (titled Superviventes), was released in 2014.

A man in Seattle has had his gun confiscated by police after breaking no laws. The police took his gun without a warrant and without pressing any charges.  Tyranny has officially taken hold on American soil.

The ability to make fire is exceptionally important in survival situations. Although you don’t need everything mentioned in the list below in order to make a fire, it might be handy to have a small variety of options as back ups, in case a lighter runs out of propane, for instance.

One of the top survival priorities in an emergency is to find and disinfect enough drinking water. Two of my favorite water disinfection tablets are Katadyn’s Micropur tablets, and Potable Aqua’s Iodine tablets. While these two products use different chemicals, they are both more than 99 percent effective against waterborne pathogens. So while they both are highly effective, you should still weigh the pros and cons of each.

Set the radio AM and tune it to a frequency that doesn’t pick up a station—the higher the frequency the better, but the only sound coming out should be static. Now turn up the radio’s volume, take the calculator in the other hand (it should be on), and angle the two so that they sort of face each other. At the right angle, the radio’s static will turn to a light buzz—you’ll hear the difference, but you might need to experiment with the angle and the distance between the calculator and radio. If you sweep this makeshift device over the ground, any metal buried relatively close to the surface will strengthen the sound of the buzz.

In both, Brave New World and 1984, common themes are addressed including government, orthodoxy, social hierarchy, economics, love, sex, and power. Both books portray propaganda as a necessary tool of government to shape the collective minds of the citizenry within each respective society and towards the specific goals of the state; to wit, stability and continuity.

A Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device is only an effective tool for someone experienced in the basics of climbing. Climbing and descending by rope is not that difficult to learn and many cities have recreation centers and outfitters with indoor walls where you can be taught how to climb by an instructor. (To be more prepared for the wilderness, follow up with instruction on an actual rock face or cliff.)

His novels tend to be heavy on acronyms and technical jargon,[31] while his non-fiction books concentrate on practical skills and tools. In the Acknowledgments note to his book Tools For Survival, Rawles credits David Brin, Algis Budrys, Tom Clancy, Bruce D.

And one last tip for shelter placement: Survey the ground around you for 20 yards or more in every direction — you are looking for ant colonies and bee hives and other insect nests. When you’re sure there are none close by, now you can place your shelter.

P ( T ≤ t 0 + t ∣ T > t 0 ) = P ( t 0 < T ≤ t 0 + t ) P ( T > t 0 ) = F ( t 0 + t ) − F ( t 0 ) S ( t 0 ) . {\displaystyle P(T\leq t_{0}+t\mid T>t_{0})={\frac {P(t_{0}t_{0})}}={\frac {F(t_{0}+t)-F(t_{0})}{S(t_{0})}}.}

Looking for a “no-cook,” “no-fuss” survival food with a long life and reasonable taste? The UST 5-Year Emergency Food Ration Bar may be just the thing. I love shortbread cookies, and these remind me of apple cinnamon oatmeal and shortbread combined. Each pack has 2,400 calories in total, which can be broken into six 400-calorie cubes for rationing purposes. These are perfect for a survival kit stashed in your car or at work, and a good fit for the outdoors, too. If you’re not a shortbread fan, these crumbly cakes might not be your favorite, but they are packed with vitamins and minerals. Bon appétit!

If you keep focusing the bright light onto some dry kindle, you will soon start a fire. The focal length of your improvised device is smaller than a magnifying glass so, you will have to hold this improvised device about 1-2 inches from the kindling.

Not only does this kit assemble into a shovel – perhaps the most basic of all survival tools – the handle itself is a multi-tool, disassembling into components that include a knife, a fire starter, a saw, a screwdriver, and on and on it goes. The adjustable shovel blade itself includes a ruler and a can/bottle opener, and one side of it is designed to be used as a knife edge. This shovel is a goddamn badass.

Banangrams! I hate playing that game with my (English teacher) daughter! I get stressed out playing games with time limits, or with “experts” who know the game much better than I do. I guess it’s partly my competitiveness and partly post-traumatic stress that I’ve been dealing with. I don’t mind Clue, even though I’m not good at it, but Monopoly is “bad” for me.

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. I’m wishing I were there physically to contribute, but since I’m not, I’m donating to the cause. Thanks to HenHouse Brewing Company for helping me decide where to send some money — this is from their page: Redwood Credit Union is a local institution working with our local State Senator to get funds to the right people. RCU did a similar donation portal for the Lake County Fire in 2015 and we know Senator Mike McGuire well, this is an excellent way to help. https://www.redwoodcu.org/northbayfirerelief

An SOS signal is the universal call for help. You can cause the signal using the light as well as sound. The message consists of three dots followed by three dashes followed by three dots. If you’re using light, an SOS signal would be three short bursts of light followed by three long bursts followed by three more short bursts. The same logic applies if you are using sound. Make sure that you practice the signal before you need to use it.

Hunting, fishing, and trapping are also significant endeavors, ones that take much time and practice. These are also skills that are often times unnecessary in a short term survival situation. However if you are in a wilderness survival situation for any length of time, you’ll want these skills. Throwing sticks, bow and arrow, primitive fishing, spear fishing, and primitive trapping are all important to learn.

China’s threat to Taiwan is ratcheting up fears of a third world war. A comment by the Chinese government saying they will “never tolerate Taiwanese independence” has prompted fears an all-out invasion is imminent.

Whether it’s a time around the corner or it’s simply today, if you’re a recreational hiker or hunter, a signal flare gun (and extra flares) can help you be found when others are searching for you. When you shop for an Orion 12 Gauge HP Red Signal Kit purchase a few flares as back-up.

Of course, when you’re planning out what you’re going to eat after a SHTF situation takes place, you should also be planning out how to cook that food as well. No good having canned goods if you haven’t thought of a way to get those cans opened without spilling their contents.

There are, but using them responsibly is an option, too. Crack open a window and do not leave it on for prolonged periods of time and *never* without monitoring it. Have a carbon monoxide alarm that will go off to be more cautious. Best if used in a garage with great ventilation. They’re still helpful, but yes, please use responsibly if you do use them. (We and many other people used them indoors without issue).

Defense / Security: The wilderness can be a dangerous place; so can the streets of a major city following a widespread disaster. This list of top 10 survival gear includes products for defense and security.

When it comes to emergency preparedness, most people I talk to think that nothing will ever happen to them- I constantly hear  “why should I bother”. In today’s world it sounds crazy to talk about storing food. Why bother when restaurants, convenient stores and grocery stores are open 24 hours a day, 7days a week? We have grown up in the age of consumerism and take for granted there will always be food on the shelves. Well, what if there is a national emergency?  Or if the unions repeat what happened in France – and stop delivery trucks in protest. What if our government keeps spending and hyper inflation occurs? Just look what happened in Boston! http://survivalist-hub.blogspot.com/. Why not be prepared just in case? It drives me NUTS when people have their heads in the sand!! But I know I am not nuts.

Over two years ago, I was getting geared up for a month of camping with OkieRhio out in Oklahoma. During one of our trips out to Knight’s Rest, we were talking about family and our experiences with epilepsy, and I opened up to her about a member of m…

Thanks Jacques, I suspect that a lot of people don’t consider comms to be that important but it will determine your route to safety as well as the next step you can make without incurring extreme risk. Not to mention the ability to be rescued in a Katrina-like situation. Thanks for dropping by!

For serious wounds, shirt sleeves can be cut off and used as bandages if necessary. Remember to only tie them around a wound so that they are still loose enough to stick one two fingers between the bandage and the appendage/body.

The North Star always points to true north, which is great for when you don’t have a compass at night or when you want to check the accuracy of the compass you have. Try looking for the big dipper first, which is easy to find if you know your constellations. Then draw an imaginary straight line through the edges of the big dipper and this will lead you to the tail of the little dipper. This is the North Star.

About Blog – Survivaltek is all about teachingthe ways and means to survive using everything from primitive to modern methods and technology. It hopes to illustrate creative ways to overcome the loss of conventional methods of living in which we have become accustom and dependent.

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.

If you’ve been a regular reader here at Tactical Intelligence .NET then you’d know the importance I place on adding wilderness survival skills to your “survival portfolio”. Even if you live and exclusively roam around in a purely urban environment, the core principles you come to understand through practicing wilderness survival will translate and apply to an urban setting.

There are scenarios where bugging in has less risks compared to bugging out. Bugging In | What You Need To Dohttps://survivallife.com/bugging-in/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=SurvivalLF&utm_content=Bugging%20In%20%7C%20What%20You%20Need%20To%20Do …
We covered Survival Knives generally in our Bug Out Bag Essentials post but they are so useful it is worth re-hashing here. Generally you are better off getting a solid, full tang knife from a trusted knifemaker such as Ontario, Camillus, Becker, or Gerber. Stay away from hollow handled survival knives if at all possible. The small amount of storage space will not make up for the overall inferior build quality. For more information on choosing a good knife for any outdoors situation, check out our comprehensive guide by CLICKING HERE.
They need to figure out a better plan to get out and to their customers. This is going to cost them their business if they don’t do something different than their current shipping. Or maybe it’s in their warehouse and the workers just don’t work but are packaging one shipment a day. Goodluck if you make a purchase from them, I hope you get your item in a reasonable amount of time.

“This is the story of baby Anthony, who endured survival at its earliest and rawest form and conquered and beat the odds of survival after being born 15 weeks premature. On April 5th, 2013 our friends Teila and Chris gave birth to their baby boy, Anthony, 25 weeks into their pregnancy (15 weeks early, expected due date of July 18th, 2013). The doctors informed them of the chances of survival, one that I think we all had a good idea of: the outlook of survival was not good but also not impossible. As the days moved forward and only a few close friends and family knew of the birth, my wife and I could only stand by and help comfort the parents as much as the hospital allowed while Anthony was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). My wife visited regularly and often, while I stayed home to watch our own 1 year old daughter and visited when I could.

I didn’t see this invaluable item item on the list or in any comments thereafter so I’ll request a good ol’ 5ft x 7ft wool blanket. I’ve used mine to sit on around the camp fire and keep myself off the warmth sapping ground. Also great for keeping warm by the fire just wrapped up in. It won’t burn from sparks either which makes it invaluable for wrapping around your (probably lite weight and highly combustable) sleeping bag. Sheds moisture alright to keep any goose down bags from losing insulation. This is under the assumption that you are sleeping outdoors under nothing more than a tarp shelter until a proper basecamp and shelter can be established. Once a shelter is established (if you dont have / bring / or burned down your tent) the wool blanket also makes for a kickass door.

If you have two mirrors, you can use the reflection from one mirror as a light source and reflect it from the second mirror. This enables you to signal north even if there is no sun present there to reflect light.

My personal EDC habits, especially in terms of how often I swap in and out the things I carry, have changed considerably over the years. I know there are many who like to change what they take out with them daily, but I’ve never been the type to change what I EDC very …

You can’t always depend on a fire source to be able to boil water, such as when it gets rainy and the ground and everything else is too damp to ignite. Also, you can’t always start a fire when you’re injured. In these instances, it’s better to pop a tablet into a container so you get the much needed water instantly.

Same as EVERYONE else (except the 1 tool that posted a 5 star & probably works there!). I ordered the everstryke match. $ gone, no product. Emailed & called. Empty promises & bullsh!t. This company is a HUGE SCAM. BEWARE!!! BBB gave them an F rating.

Sorry Ohio. I’m on my IPhone and didn’t see your response before I replied. Have at it. If you get tired part way through, let me know and I can give you my email and take over for the last half 🙂 I’m one of those kids with teachers for parents. I had no choice but to be an “editor” 🙂 🙂

The rest of your ideas are awesome! The olive oil in a jar though. Some of your suggestions seem to be more relevant to a bug out situation, whereas the jar of oil is not. Very useful tip for a bug in situation though! Personally, I have lamps and lamp oil in stock for home use, plus emergency candles in my BOB.

^ Survivalists get ready for meltdown – CNN.com. 2 May 2008. Retrieved 22 February 2010. Of course, none of this kind of talk is that new. The nature of the threat may have changed but groups of various descriptions have been predicting a breakdown of society since biblical times – and very occasionally they’ve been right.

Tampons are very effective in dealing with deep wounds because they were designed to absorb lots of moisture. They also gradually take the shape of the wound as they swell over time. You can bring lots of them because they’re small, lightweight, can be bought almost anywhere, and are pretty inexpensive.

Surrounding the campfire with rocks is a great way of prolonging the heat from the fire. The rocks will stay warm long after the flames have extinguished. Small hot stones can also be used to boil water.

Animal bones can be used as weapons: When it comes to the bones, you can fashion small weapons that you can use to hunt or fish. After all, animal bones were one of the first weapons of our prehistoric ancestors!

Whether or not you plan on bugging out in an emergency SHTF or survival situation, you definitely want to have your important documents and some healthy finances on your side. Tradeable goods are also extremely helpful post-SHTF, which is why they’re on this list. It may be more beneficial to stockpile urban survival gear that will actually be of use to you and those around you in a post-SHTF situation, but in case there’s something you forgot or ran out of, tradeable goods are definitely an asset.

GA Mom….You said “make sure you have a good seal”….I assume that you’re talking bout the mylar bag prior to sealing the lid ? And you recommend waiting and checking the bag after a day before putting on the lid?

The key to prevention? Eat slower. As one McMaster University physician found in a study of 145 students from his daughter’s middle school, kids who scarfed a bowl of ice cream 
in five seconds or fewer were twice as likely to feel brain freeze as those who took their time.

Take a small piece of cloth and shove it in a metal box or a container. Make sure that the container is sealed and throw it in the fire. Let the container burn in the fire for a few minutes. Remove it from fire and let it cool. If you did it right, the cloth inside would be completely black but not burnt. This cloth is called a char cloth. It catches fire with the smallest of sparks!

Write the pain away. Relief can be as simple as freewriting for 20 minutes a day, four days in a row, says James 
W. Pennebaker, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas. “Across multiple studies, people who engage in expressive writing report feeling happier and less negative than they felt before,” he writes in his book, Expressive Writing: Words That Heal. Per one study, “those who kept their traumas secret went to physicians almost 40 percent more often than those who openly talked about them.”

Another form of fire-starting because you can never have too many. If you currently have regular matches in with your survival gear, you making a mistake. If regular matches get wet, they are worthless.

His How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It: Tactics, Techniques, and Technologies for Uncertain Times is a non-fiction book drawn primarily from posts on SurvivalBlog.com. The book was described as The preppers’ Bible, by a Reuters journalist.[20] His blog addresses preparing for the multitude of possible threats toward society. Rawles describes how to prepare against a post-disaster society that suffers looting, armed violence and food shortages. He recommends establishing rural safe havens at least 300 miles from the nearest major city, financial planning for a future barter-based economy, water retrieval and purification, food production and storage, security and self-defense techniques and strategies.[43][44]

Similar to those old toys and puzzles where you had to pop out each piece from the plastic holder it came attached to, the Readyman wilderness survival card is a completely flat piece of metal that co.

Whether it’s a time around the corner or it’s simply today, if you’re a recreational hiker or hunter, a signal flare gun (and extra flares) can help you be found when others are searching for you. When you shop for an Orion 12 Gauge HP Red Signal Kit purchase a few flares as back-up.
