I seem to always have back and spine pain. Sometimes worse than others. I don't like taking a lot of the over the counter drugs , that don't usually do much, except eat up your liver and other bodily organs. And the doctor prescribed stuff that is out today will work, but we all know about the addiction rates for this stuff and I don't want to have to deal with that .
So , I've looked into the possibility of natural remedies. I...

The Scavenger 6 is a new rifle that looks like a revolver and can fire 21 different calibers of ammunition, just by swapping out the cylinder.
In a post-apocalyptic scenario where survival is dependent upon scavenging resources, it pays to be prepared. Thats the thinking behind Scavenger 6, a new rifle that can fire 21 different calibers of ammunition.
Though rifle hardly seems a fitting term, just look...

No, not junk food, using found junk, trash and the usual
detritus of civilization as survival items.
With each passing day and each new ICBM launch from a seemingly unhinged North Korean dictator, the fears of an attack on the U.S. mainland, though faint, increasingly weigh on the hearts and minds of Americans, particularly those in California. As The Guardian points out today, those fears have even prompted a group of California public health officials and emergency responders to gather for a strategy session with Hal Kempfer, a retired marine lieutenant colonel, to discuss which areas are the most likely targets and how citizens should respond to an attack.
Hal Kempfer, a noted international security expert, is getting a roomful of California public health officials and emergency responders to think about the unthinkable a nuclear bomb exploding at the port of Long Beach, about four miles away.
A lot of people will be killed, he said, but a large percentage of the population will survive. They will be at risk and they will need help.
If you want to mess up southern California, if you want to mess up the west coast, if you want to mess up our country where do you attack? Kempfer asks. If Im sitting in North Korea and looking at possible targets, Im going to be looking at Long Beach very closely.
He talks about the port and downtown Long Beach being toast no exaggeration, since the blast wave is likely to vaporize everything in its immediate path. But the city health department, the Long Beach airport and fire department might not be; they are all somewhat protected by a hilly area that is likely to halt the initial blast wave. And so the city can, tentatively, think about setting up a center of emergency operations.
Of course, the radioactive fallout created as the explosion gathers up tremendous quantities of dust and ocean water and spits them into the atmosphere would represent a secondary grave risk, especially in the first hours after an attack.
Not to mention the electromagnetic pulse that is likely to knock out electronic s...

Wow, its hard to believe that its already been a full week since our last segment.
It seems like the older that I get the faster the hours, days, weeks, months, and years slip away. I often lie down at night and try to sleep but my mind takes me back to times past and I find myself wondering how it all went by so rapidly and left me with only misty memories to hold too as I grow into old age.
Soon Ill pass by the mirror and glance at an old man whose best days are in the past and days in the future uncertain.

The primary clinical application (medicinally) for Green Tea is as an adjunct in the prevention of both heart disease and cancer. All the bodys systems, such as the digestive tract, bloodstream, and breasts (regarding estrogen-related cancers for women) have been demonstrated to be protected with Green Tea, that contains anticancer properties in abundance.
It has thermogenic and fat-oxidizing properties that can be useful for patients who are obese. It also reduces glucose and several other plasma constituents that are indicative of Type 2 Diabetes. Polyphenols are the chemicals that are responsible for the chemoprotective (protect from chemicals and poisons) and antioxidative effects of Green Tea. In past articles, I explained how free radicals worked, and Im going to touch on it again now.
Free radicals are atoms or molecules that are missing an electron. What they do is grab or capture that missing electron, stealing it if you will from a healthy cell. The problem is, the healthy cell is no longer healthy. Scientists and doctors believe that free radicals are responsible for a great deal of growth of cancerous cells, as well as being the primary agents responsible for aging. Green Tea is an antioxidant: it holds extra electrons, and it fights these free radicals by donating one of its extra electrons to the Snidely Whiplash free radical, thereby neutralizing its harmful effects. Do you get the picture?
Do you know what to do if you are out in the wild and you run
out of food? Would you
know how to survive off the land if you were lost and had to find something to eat? Do
you notoriously overpack snacks when you go hiking and camping?
If youre planning an upcoming trip, then youre going to need
fuel and lots of it.
Sometimes, you dont want to pack pounds of heavy protein items such as nuts,
cans of beans, peanut butter jars and more. But you also dont have to live through a
food insecurity issue in the forest. There are many plants that you can eat if you know
what they look and smell like.
Divide your rations for your next big hiking or bug out trip by packing a mix of trail
food items and then foraging in the forest. These five tips will help you locate and
identify what are known as fruits of the forest or edible plants and mushrooms that
can sustain you, give you energy and bide you time until your next campsite meal.
Heres how to get started with foraging your next meal out on the trail:
Tip #1: Collect Ground Elder for a Trail Salad
If you find yourself hiking along a roadside, a park or a church
yard, then youre likely to
come across ground elder.
This green, shiny, leafy plant is known for its toothed, ovate leaves that are grouped in
threes. There are two lower leaves that sometimes split into fives. If youre hiking in the
summer months from May-June, you may notice that ground elder has very small white
flowers that have an umbrella shape. If you need further confirmation that youve got
ground elder, smell it. It will smell like a sweet parsley.
Use ground elder to make a fresh, salad. This is best used with the young leaves, which
will feel light and thin. Wash them with water you have cleaned and purified via a
In this article, I will walk you through the quick and simple process for making granola, a delicious, nutritious, and long lasting trail food that every survivalist should carry. When you are facing the tough physical work that survival requires, you need a quality preserved snack. It needs to provide carbohydrates, fiber, sugars, and protein. It also needs to last long enough for a few weeks of hiking.
Unlike most preserved foods, you would prefer it to be tasty as well. For this type of snack, homemade granola is what you want. There are no preservatives or artificial ingredients when you make it yourself. In addition, the recipe for this snack is one of the fastest and simplest I have seen.
When I first experimented with this recipe, the amazing toasty smells filled our house. I let my wife and son taste the first batch, and it was almost gone on the first night. I brought it with me when I took my two nephews on a survival challenge over the summer. While my pack was filled with preserved foods, the granola was gone before they even tried the other foods. This recipe is sure to be a favorite for anybody that tastes it.
Get a large mixing bowl and add the oats. Spoon in the honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt. You should now get your hands dirty and mix all of these ingredients. Depending on the type of coconut oil, it could be liquid or so...
Sometimes when handling gasoline containers you wind up with
gasoline on your hands, feet, or face.
Gasoline will penetrate the skin, and take all kinds of chemicals you don't want with it. And it'll blister you, as well. Some people are very sensitive to that.
The faster you get it off, the better. But soap and water just don't do the job very well. I've washed my hands six times after getting leaked on, and could still smell the gas left on my skin afterwards.
So here's a quick & easy...
A quick, cheap & easy way to get gasoline off your skin.
Here is a simple and inexpensive way of making fire starters
that are portable, water proof, compact, and reliable. These fire
starters can be manufactured from found raw materials such as

fire starters make good economical 'good will' trade goods.

Luckily, there are tons of used auto parts readily available, which are nice and inexpensive. Opting for such a finance means youll need to acquire complete insurance, which isnt included, and really deal with the vehicle. Mortgage loans are credit facilities which make it feasible that people acquire items like houses or cars.
When it has to do with reselling your automobile, there are several various things to consider. Theres now a simple and hassle-free approach to sell your automobile. This way you can discover that a number of the sections of your vehicle have come to be completely damaged and require immediate replacement. The car is already re advertised online beneath the industry value to draw attention. If you purchase an industrial vehicle or a tractor from a dealer you might not have exactly the same protection below the law.
If youre looking for an excellent automobile crash lawyer, Tampa has great alternatives for you. There are a lot of used car dealerships where youre come across cars which can be a tiny bit more hit-and-miss. If youre a car owner its sensible to get as much discounts as possible for your car insurance policy premium. Whether youre on the lookout for a particular automobile type, or only wish to browse by price or category, then the internet is a remarkable place to begin. If youre on the lookout for an auto loan, your regional Credit Union might have the ability to aid you.
Your Car doesnt require new spares! All cars now have to undergo and NCT after four decades initially and after two decades thereafter. Where the vehicle you bought is unroadworthy, you can also refer the issue to the Garda Siochana.
In 1918, the business was requested to prevent aircraft engine creation, because of a treaty. You might also have to shop a bit harder to come across companies who will offer coverage. Massive businesses cant even afford to think about such smallish niches.
Be sure that you chat to the sellers beside you whenever you arrive. Its therefore important whenever buying from a private seller to guard yourself from unscrupulous individuals. The seller is needed to offer you accurate and truthful data in answer to any questions which you ask. If youre the seller of a vehicle the reversal of ownership procedure is very important, since you might continue to get notifications regarding the vehicle for things such as fines a...

High Ranking CIA Agent Blows Whistle On The Deep State And Shadow Government
by Aaron Kesel
A CIA whistleblower, Kevin Shipp, has emerged from the wolves den to expose the deep state and the shadow government which he calls two entirely separate entities.
The shadow government controls the deep state and manipulates our elected government behind the scenes, Shipp warned in a recent talk at a Geoengineeringwatch.org conference.
Shipp had a series of slides explaining how the deep state and shadow government functions as well as the horrific crimes they are committing against U.S. citizens.
Some of the revelations the former CIA anti-terrorism counter intelligence officer revealed included that Google Earth was set up through the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and InQtel. Indeed he is correct, the CIA and NGA owned the company Google acquired, Keyhole Inc., paying an undisclosed sum for the company to turn its tech into what we now know as Google Earth. Another curious investor in Keyhole Inc. was none other than the venture capital firm In-Q-Tel run by the CIA according to a press release at the time.
Shipp also disclosed that the agency known as the Joint Special Ops Command (JSOC) is the presidents secret army which he can use for secret assassinations, overturning governments and things the American people dont know about.
FBI warrantless searches violate the Fourth Amendment with national security letters, which Shipp noted enables them to walk into your employers office and demand all your financial records and if he or she says anything about them being there they can put your supervisor in jail or drop a case against themselves using the States Secret Privilege...

The last couple of weeks have seen a virtual bloodbath in crypto currency trading with the majority of all publicly traded digital coins and tokens experiencing losses ranging from 20% to 98%. The carnage began when rumors swirled that China would limit ICO (Initial Coin Offerings) due to rampant fraud and uncertainty. The rumors quickly turned to reality, when earlier this week one of Chinas largest centralized crypto exchanges announced that they would be closing their doors to domestic currency trading, meaning that the tens of thousands of Chinese who had been helping to drive Bitcoin gains of over 500% over the last year would soon be removed from the market. This led to an immediate and violent decline, with prices of Bitcoin going from a September 2nd all-time high of $4900 down to a brutal $3200 by Thursday morning.
And while prices appear to be recovering this morning (trading at $3695 at the time of writing) , we have to wonder if the words of Admiral Ackbar are applicable to todays significant upswing:
Because according to Bitcoin.com, as of this morning, two additional large Chinese Bitcoin exchanges have confirmed that they will no longer offer crypto currency trading to the Chinese domestic population:
According to reports, all exchanges that deal with cryptocurrencies in China must shut down operations to stay compliant with the countrys regulators. Following these rumors early this morning, the exchange Viabtc announced it would also be closing operations on September 30. The price of bitcoin is down 38 percent since the two Chinese exchanges made their announcements.
After Viabtc revealed the trading platform would be closing, the exchange Yobtc detailed that it would be ceasing trade opera...
Guess I'll start. First, some that I do not have current photos of. Mango, lychee, longan, sea asparagus, bananas and coconuts. There's so many that I like!
Here's a few that I do have current pictures of.
Most people dont think about alternate routes. Instead they drive the same routes and roads everywhere they normally go. These roads are typically the quickest to their destination and are the roads well traveled by most people in vehicles. However if something were to happen that clogs the mainstream routes into traffic jams, would you know alternate routes to get where youre going? During an evacuation or bug out event, will the masses choose the popular main routes and roads that are most often traveled? The answer to the last question is, YES. People are mostly creatures of habit while
Venezuela is the 11th largest oil producing country in the entire world, and it has just announced that it is going to stop using the petrodollar. Most Americans dont even know what the petrodollar is, but for those of you that do understand what I am talking about, this should send a chill up your spine. The petrodollar is one of the key pillars of the global financial system, and it allows us to live a far higher standard of living than we actually deserve. The dominance of the petrodollar has been very jealously guarded by our government in the past, and that is why many are now concerned that this move by Venezuela could potentially lead us to war.
I dont know why this isnt headline news all over the country, but it should be. One of the few major media outlets that is reporting on this is the Wall Street Journal
The government of this oil-rich but struggling country, looking for ways to circumvent U.S. sanctions, is telling oil traders that it will no longer receive or send payments in dollars, people familiar with the new policy have told The Wall Street Journal.
Before we go any further, we should discuss what we mean by the petrodollar for those that are not familiar with the concept. The following comes from an excellent article by Christopher Doran
In a nutshell, any country that wants to purchase oil from an oil producing country has to do so in U.S. dollars. This is a long standing agreement within all oil exporting nations, aka OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The UK for example, cannot simply buy oil from Saudi...
I saw some YouTube videos today where meals are cooked in
thermos (what is the plural of "thermos" Is it thermoses,
So it would save much propane fuel for me. Just boil the water or quickly boil the entire stew, turn off my stove and dump everything into the thermos. Could make my evening meal when I drink my coffee in the morning then come back at dinner time and eat. Anybody try this method on various ingredients/recipes?

We have covered the topic of preparedness for a nuclear war before, but we have not discussed immediate actions to take within the first hours that such a nightmare becomes a reality. First, let us mention again Cresson Kearneys work Nuclear War Survival Skills, and downloadable from the internet. It is the end-all, be-all for information on preparedness for a nuclear war.
The topic for this article is immediate actions to be taken when nuclear war presents itself; however, stress and emphasis must be made on preparations beforehand. You want to garner all of the supplies possible beforehand and prepare a fallout shelter before the football game kicks off. This will cut down on the scrambling when it all comes about. There will be enough confusion in the works, and you dont need to make any more for yourself through a lack of readiness by not having supplies you need in place.

If you discover none, then care for your dog at home, since there is no actual need to worry. If you intend to travel with your dog, there are many things you should do to be sure youre giving him the finest possible degree of care.

I had an ACOG on my AK and I loved it. Now I've switched over to
the AR platform and I'm trying to pick the right optic.
There wasn't much choice for 7.62x39 so I had a compact 3x24 with a red horseshoe dot reticle. I liked it just fine, so I'm considering it again. However the red Circle/donut seems like it would be faster to acquire as well as faster to reacquire. I dunno'. That's why I'm asking you guys.
Another factor is cost. It's way more than I paid for my Colt. So far...
Please help me pick the right ACOG
