PREPAREDNESS FOR LIFE through Risk Awareness; to Adapt and take Action.
A refrigerator is one of the most important pieces of equipment in the kitchen for keeping foods safe. Refrigeration slows bacterial growth.
Bacteria grow most rapidly between 40 and 140 °F, the “Danger Zone”.
A refrigerator set at 40 °F or below will protect most foods.
If you’re wondering how long food storage will last in the refrigerator, here’s a list of common foods and their safe food storage time in the fridge.
The concept of situational awareness is rudimentary and elemental to survival, and it’s definition can be condensed to a simple thing: “to pay attention to what is happening around you”. The problem is, it’s not as simple as that for most people. Here’s how to train yourself to make it simple – know the baseline.
We’ve alerted you about government agency tests of license plate scanner technology which can scan, track and log EVERY vehicle that passes by, it now appears that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wants to track your license plates and is part of an overall multi-govt-agency contract worth nearly half a million dollars to a license-plate-tracking company in California.
While apparently not understanding the “shall not be infringed” part of the 2nd Amendment, there is high concern that the Obama administration in cooperation with Attorney General Eric Holder may be considering an Executive Order to require all firearms be equipped with biometric technology and/or bracelets which will restrict the firing of said firearm to the registered owner.
“All governments had better open their eyes for we are on the brink of a major convergence between both the Cycle of Civil Unrest, Civil War & Revolution and International War.”
170 miles due west of the Yellowstone super-volcano lies the small town of Challis, Idaho – the residents of which have been shaken from a sudden swarm of earthquakes.
They have a historical reason to be concerned: The Challis-Mackay region experienced extensive damage on October 28, 1983, when the Borah Peak earthquake occurred measuring 6.9 on the Richter Scale (originally reported at 7.3).
The happenings of geophysical earth is intertwined in many ways – some of which we know about and others which we have no clue. Given the attention of several recent earthquakes (Los Angeles, Chile, and others) and now this earthquake swarm in Idaho, should remind us of the earthquake hazards that many of us face – hazards which go unnoticed or ignored by most.
We’ve posted before on the top conservative and liberal cities in the United States, the lowest to highest taxes by state, and even polled you for the most pro and anti constitution states, now we ask the question – how free is your state?
Different people value aspects of freedom differently, however I recently came across this rank ordered list of states from the Mercatus Center – George Mason University.
The overall ranking is a combination of freedoms from categories including fiscal, regulatory, personal, economic, liability, property rights, tax burden, and many more.
The top five most free states (according to their weighting methodology)
North and South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma.
The least free states (according to their weighting methodology)
Rhode Island, Hawaii, New Jersey, California, and New York.
