Monster Sunspot – Solar Flare: Oops, There Goes The 21st Century

October 24, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


>UPDATE (10/24, 21:30 GMT) A Strong X3+ Solar Flare Is Currently In Progress and it will be geoeffective because the sunspot is directly facing Earth.

(will update with further information as it develops)

LOTS OF SOLAR FLARES: Solar activity is high.

GIANT sunspot AR2192 has produced dozens of C-class solar flares, many M-class flares, and several X-flares (so far).

The most powerful solar flare eruption from this sunspot (so far) is apparently this one currently in progress (10/24) so far an X3+. Previously an X1.6-category blast on Oct 22nd knocked out some radio communication on Earth.

It may be the biggest sunspot group in 25 years.

Ebola NYC

October 24, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


As you’ve probably already heard, Ebola is now in NYC. New York City, the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York metropolitan area populated with 20 million people – there couldn’t be a worse place for Ebola to pop up. Although we knew it would sooner or later…

A doctor admitted to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday has tested positive for the Ebola virus, and had traveled on the A and L subway lines Wednesday night, visited a bowling alley in Williamsburg, and then took a taxi back to Manhattan.

But the Mayor, Bill de Blasio, said there’s no reason to worry. “There’s no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed.”

Ummm… really? Wait till you read this…

The Best Way To Store Yeast

October 22, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Having purchased some more bulk instant dry yeast, I researched (again) the best way to store yeast for maximum shelf life.

Since we make all of our bread from scratch (from our own milled wheat), we go through yeast fairly quickly and therefore we like to buy and store larger quantities and store it (also good for general preparedness).

Knowing that yeast is ‘alive’, I wasn’t sure how necessary it is store and keep it ‘refrigerator’ cool, and I also wasn’t sure if storing yeast in the freezer would be best (or a problem by possibly damaging the yeast cells after they freeze).

Here’s my conclusion:

How To Cook Rice With 80 Percent Less Fuel!

October 22, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Most preppers have a quantity of dry food storage including rice. A problem with rice though, is that it requires a substantial amount of fuel (heat) energy to cook (boil-simmer) to soften the grains such that you can actually eat it.

In a SHTF world, not only will our food storage be a very valuable resource, but so will our energy sources.

The good news is that I’ve found a way to cook rice with just a fraction of the fuel energy needed compared to conventional cooking methods of boiling and simmering…

What Are Your Favorite Alternative News & Information Sources – Websites?

October 21, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Many of you are skeptical of the mainstream news (e.g. alphabet channels) and their choice of what they deem important or relevant to ‘feed’ us each day – along with their subtle ‘slant’ on how we should ‘think’ about it.

Instead, many of you augment and diversify your sources of news and information with ‘alternative news’ sources – with the logical thought that you will then better discern what may be important or relevant to YOU.

So – knowing that most of you probably have a healthy set of bookmarks of your ‘go-to’ alternative news websites, I, and I’m sure others, are curious to know where you browse to get your ‘news’ and information diversification…

Four Survival Guns

October 20, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Owning a gun, or a variety of guns, is not only your Constitutional right, but is a core element to ultimate personal protection and it compliments the lifestyle of ‘survival living’ as a practical tool.

Although there are some who are wary of guns, and there are parts of the world where gun ownership is outright banned, owning a gun is really just like owning a tool to compliment all the other tools that you have in your ‘kit’.

I like to re-post this (original) article every year for your additional comments – because it’s always a popular and often widely debated subject with many opinions…

5 Amazing Charts Of Our Recent Climate Cool Down

October 19, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


I recently came across five interesting charts which reflect the gut opinion I’ve had lately – that it’s actually getting a bit cooler out there compared to some years gone by.

Our climate is always changing (that’s what weather does) in cycles and oscillations – some long, some short, under a myriad of underlying causes – many of which have been scientifically identified (e.g. El Niño, La Niña, Pacific decadal oscillation, Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, Arctic Oscillation, glacial periods, etc..) while others are politically identified (e.g global warming, climate change).

No matter the cause for our recent cool down, here are five statistical charts which may support your notion that it has indeed been cooler than ‘normal’ out there lately…
