how much propane do you have stocked up? kerosene? diesel fuel? used oil for heating? or even new oil for oil changes or lubing up items that require lube? a generator that can run off of propane and natural gas? these run my machine shop and other power tools when needed. i could go on for days of things missed. too bad i do not have that much time.
This example uses the Acute Myelogenous Leukemia survival data set aml from the survival package in R. The data set is from Miller (1997) and the question is whether the standard course of chemotherapy should be extended (‘maintained’) for additional cycles.
There were also at least 3 other folks who volunteered to help. After Word 2003 Microsoft switched to a new format (docx). If you have 2003 or earlier let us know and the document may be exported for the earlier versions of Word. I BTW am running 2007.
You can buy CR-123s by the hundred for about $20.00 on Amazon or Ebay. But unless space and weight are primary concerns, you’d be best off with rechargeable lithium AA/AAA batteries that can be set up to a solar charger. Ebay sells some batteries with built in USB ports although ports are notoriously fragile on phones so keep that in mind. The justification for going with lithium despite the higher price compared to NiMH isn’t more “power” but rather the longer shelf-life. NiMH lose charge at a rate of something like 50% over six months vs 10% or less per month for Lithium.
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…

The websites have been ranked using a variety of metrics, including Google Pagerank, Incoming Links, and the Alexa Traffic ranking algorithm. Though these rankings don’t necessarily determine quality of content or regularity of publishing, the fact that they have a high volume of visitors and incoming links suggests that people visiting the web sites find the information of benefit and consider the content to be informative and worthy of links from their own blogs or social network pages.
Survival Power: A military Goretex sleeping bag system can do a good job at keeping you warm — but only to negative 10 degrees Fahrenheit — you’ll have to wear additional layers and craft additional insulation if temperatures drop below negative 10.
If you are trapped in a desert or dry wilderness, it is critical that you keep your body cool. Although finding shade can be difficult, you can create a makeshift cooling hat using just two things: a rag and your urine.
Very comprehensive list, the first one I’ve seen a Personal Location Beacon on. I will comment on one aspect, communication, my family is scattered all over the country and I’m sure (hopefully) they will all want to know I’m OK. We have one member of the family as a contact for all of us to call on our cell phones. Local communication lines will be jammed, internet will be down. The next goal will be to remain safe for the first 3 days, but communication is #1. Good article! A lot of knowledge here.

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.
I say no.Â Â The bag is sealed, and the only real reason for the bucket is to physically protect the thin bag.Â I use Home Depot orange buckets.Â I probably wouldn’t use a bucket that held some really toxic substance, but that’s it.Â Â The only difference in the food grade and non food grade NEW buckets is the mold release agent isn’t FDA approved for food.Â That’s it.Â Â Â Again, with sealed mylar, I just don’t see a problem.
When assembling a kit for any trip, Forti takes something he calls the of three’s” into account, which banks on the presumption that you can die in three hours when exposed to bad weather; that you can die in three days from thirst; and that you can die in three weeks from lack of food.
I’ve called their customer service, and it’s hit-or-miss on being helpful. I canceled my membership when they persisted that I was not a member, despite regular monthly billing. They were finally able to find it, but I thought I could do better with my money elsewhere. The things they sell are not cheaper than the same items elsewhere online when you add in the $19.95 a month charge.
