Survival Power: Snare placement can be a key factor to whether or not you catch anything; your ability to know where to set snares relies on you learning and practicing basic trapping skills for capturing small game. Baiting traps with common game foods like nuts, seeds, and berries (and artificial baits) can help boost your snaring success.

High demand – high search volumes, lots of customer reviews on sites like Amazon, high conversion rates on digital products, enthusiastic and rabid buyers. (James shows how you should be copywriting for affiliate products here)

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.

Not every state is friendly towards homesteaders, which can make going off-grid even more difficult than it already is. You’ll have a much easier time if you homestead in a state that has laws and natural resources for homesteaders. There aren’t any “perfect” states for homesteaders because every state government wants to dictate how… Read More

Speaking of hairbands. I sometimes found myself in need of rubber bands while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s amazing how and when the need for such a trivial little thing can arise. And I discovered hairbands are tougher. Paperclips are also in my BOB. Never know when you may need a short bit of light duty wire to use as an improvised needle or fish hook, light duty clamp, or twist ties. Small, compact, and lightweight. I have two cellophane wrappers from cigarette packs, one holds a small assortment of different sized hairbands, the other has an assortment of different sized paperclips. Both of them together weigh about 3 ounces and take up less space than just one of the cigarette packs that yielded the wrappers.

One can also make more complex inferences from the survival distribution. In mechanical reliability problems, one can bring cost (or, more generally, utility) into consideration, and thus solve problems concerning repair or replacement. This leads to the study of renewal theory and reliability theory of ageing and longevity.

^ Survivalists get ready for meltdown – 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.

Take a piece of the ribbon and tie it with a knot at the bitter end. Now, twist the skin to create a powerful thread. Use the other piece and wrap it on top of the first string. Repeat with a third string. Make a few these mini strings.

Yet on a different show. A Solar Power company had a similar problem. The sun was only up during the day. (and on Cloudy days well)… They came up with a killer fix. Keep in mind the-Powers-that- be wanted to install expensive jet engine (turbines) generators…. But, The Solar power plant, instead of Solar panels used a solar heat conversion system. The solar rays made steam. They stored the BTU’s (heat) in the Ground (complex salt heat sinks). They stored HEAT called “Positive BTU’s” first. By building a heat sink out of a salt compound, the steam, and via heat pumps transferred the heat into the salt sinks. They had another yet another problem time latter with too much heat…. instead of the conventional thought. To get rid of the heat. (Think massive cooling towers) They stored COLD “Negative BTU’s” (Cold) in a cold sink. Just by running the same water that was steam, in the winter they run the cold water through the solar pipe above ground collecting the cold. And store the negative BTU’s in a system of ‘water bath sinks’. (Think a bath tub with pipes running horizontally through the water cooling then freezing the water) Then when they needed positive BTU’s they took that from the Salt Heat sinks, and when it was too hot in the Office buildings they pumped the water through the bath tubs that had frozen water in them. This was possible, first because they had a large chunk of land. And second because they thought out of the box…..

Add salt to your emergency kit if you haven’t already, as this mineral is an essential to human life. The body does not produce salt, but it needs it for survival. Salt is necessary for correct nerve transmission as well as sweat, blood, and digestive uses. Let’s take a quick look at why salt is something you definitely want in a survival situation.

While there may be no single BEST flashlight, there are certainly plenty of attributes to be considered when selecting your flashlight.  Light is of upmost importance in a survival situation, but the ability to see in the dark is something that you should never be far from in any situation.  For example, I never go out of town without a […]
