How To Cook Rice With 80 Percent Less Fuel!

October 22, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

how-to-cook-rice-with-less-fuel

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

list-of-alternative-news-websites

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

four-survival-guns

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

recent-climate-cool-down

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…

Top Scientist: Ebola Virus Mutation – More Contagious

October 18, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

ebola-virus-mutation-more-contagious

New fears that the Ebola virus is mutating and becoming even more contagious.

Chief scientist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Peter Jahrling, said (to vox media) his team has run tests on patients in Liberia, and they seem to carry a much higher “viral load.”

“There seems to be a belief that the virus load is higher in these patients [today] than what we have seen before. If true, that’s a very different bug.”

Apparently this virus burns hotter and quicker.
[meaning it's more contagious and easily spread].

Are Your Grocery Store Shelves Suddenly ‘Thinning’ Or Empty ? #Ebola

October 17, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

The question is, Have you noticed ‘any’ thinning (or empty shelf sections) of certain foods at your local grocery store?

This is a question for you based on what may simply be a coincidental experience today at our local grocery store – or it may be a sign that more people are stocking up on food because of the Ebola virus scare – and affecting our JIT (just in time) food distribution system.

MREs

October 17, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

mres

A MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) is a US military precooked ration pack designed to feed soldiers who are currently engaged in ongoing missions. Just like regular meals, these military MREs are fortified with vitamins and minerals enough to nourish and replenish the body.

Today’s MREs are a lot better than when they first came out, and are made with a very wide variety of foods and flavors – and are available for civilian use.

Here’s more about MREs and why they are a good addition to part of one’s overall food storage preparedness – particularly for portability and ease of use.
