Why Is NASA Working On A Way To Destroy Asteroids Using Nuclear Weapons?
Disaster Preparedness
June 24, 2015
Asteroid Meteor - Public Domain

 

, I know that headline sounds like it comes from the 1998 movie “Armageddon” starting Bruce Willis, but this is actually happening.  NASA and the National Nuclear Security Administration are teaming up to try to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons to either destroy threatening asteroids or to at least nudge them off course.  This seems very odd considering the fact that just a couple of weeks ago NASA publicly announced that it knew of “no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth” and that “no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years“.  If what NASA told us previously is true, than it would seem that it would be a tremendous waste of time, money and resources to work on a way to destroy asteroids using nuclear weapons.  Why is NASA suddenly so interested in the threat of large asteroids if one is not likely to hit us “any time in the next several hundred years”?  Could it be possible that they know something that they are not telling us?

When I first heard that NASA was teaming up with the National Nuclear Security Administration to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons against asteroids, I immediately had flashbacks to two of my favorite movies from the 1990s – Deep Impact and Armageddon.  But it disturbs me that our “best minds” haven’t come up with any better ideas since those films first came out.  The following is from a New York Times article about this new development… READ MORE

 
World’s Wealthiest Buying up Luxury Doomsday Bunkers and Hi-tech Panic Rooms
Disaster Preparedness
June 17, 2015

Over the last couple of years, the world’s wealthiest have been rushing to buy doomsday bunkers, panic rooms and futuristic state-of-the-art security systems. Do they know something we don’t? What exactly are they preparing for?

Bunker for the Wealthy

The world’s wealthiest have grown increasingly interested in survival bunkers, and over the past few years have poured mega amounts of money into retrofitting their homes with over the top home security systems. In fact, these people are taking preparedness to a whole new level.

From secret passage ways built into their homes to multi-million dollar underground bunkers, wealthy people from around the world are transforming their homes into luxurious fortresses, built to withstand every kind of disaster and/or attacker. They are shelling out millions of dollars to protect themselves from disasters and the public.

Companies like Creative Home Engineering are building high-tech passageways and hidden doorways that lead to elaborate panic rooms or underground bunkers. And companies like American Saferoom Door Company are building bulletproof doors with electromagnetic locks that sell for over $20,000 a piece.

Twelve ways the world could end

12 ways end of the world

What are the chances of all human life being destroyed by a supervolcano? Or taken over by robots? A new report from Oxford university assesses the risks of apocalypse

ince the dawn of civilisation people have speculated about apocalyptic bangs and whimpers that could wipe us out. Now a team from Oxford university’s Future of Humanity Institute and the Global Challenges Foundation has come up with the first serious scientific assessment of the gravest risks we face.

Although civilisation has ended many times in popular fiction, the issue has been almost entirely ignored by governments. “We were surprised to find that no one else had compiled a list of global risks with impacts that, for all practical purposes, can be called infinite,” says co-author Dennis Pamlin of the Global Challenges Foundation. “We don’t want to be accused of scaremongering but we want to get policy makers talking.” (SOURCE)

 
If The SHTF, RIGHT NOW, What Would You Do?
Disaster Preparedness
February 13, 2015

if-shtf-right-now

Whether you think you’re prepared or not, if it hit the fan – right now – what would you do?

I’m mostly curious to hear what you have to say, but here are a few of my thoughts —


 
If ‘it’ happened right at this moment, the things that I would do next are relative to where I am at the moment, coupled with whatever ‘it’ is.

For this hypothetical question, lets just presume that ‘it’ is pretty bad, and will probably be long lasting while the effects will be variable – some regions worse than others – but much worse in the cities and MSA’s (Metropolitan Statistical Areas).

 
Even for those who have diligently prepared for disaster, sometimes there is a feeling that there just isn’t enough in one’s food and supply inventory yet… There also may be the feeling that there is still a lack of adequate self-sufficiency / self-reliance skills to assist in the endeavor to ‘stay alive’ long term without the systemic infrastructure which brings us our modern life-sustaining food and supplies.

That said, if the SHTF right now, it will probably mostly be too late to accomplish fulfilling much of any deficit.

I ask you to seriously contemplate this question (of what would you do ‘right now’) because the answers to that question (and there will be many) will probably identify some areas where you are still lacking.

These are the things that you should take care of today, so that ‘if’ the SHTF for real, you won’t be too late.

Ebola Response by U.S. Was Deadly Slow, Expert Says
Disaster Preparedness
January 04, 2015

 “What we have here are a collection of random acts of preparedness”

Ebola Response by U.S. Was Deadly Slow, Expert Says

The U.S. moved quickly to stem the Ebola virus from taking on massive proportions, but experts say the threat was a wake up call.

Dr. Irwin Redlener, director of Columbia University’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness, said the U.S. needs a central authority and coordination among a constellation of federal, state and local agencies.

“What we have here are a collection of random acts of preparedness,” Redlener told The Boston Globe. “Again, we’re laser-focused on what happened yesterday.”

Redlener said the appointment of federal Ebola czar Ronald Klain was an important step that enabled the U.S. to fight the virus, still considered a major global threat.

Despite the widespread news of Ebola’s outbreak and the apparent fright triggered by its rapid spread, Ebola is relatively easy to contain compared to some other unknown viruses, experts indicated.

Thomas Eric Duncan was misdiagnosed in a Dallas hospital and infected two nurses with the virus.  His fiancee and those who lived with him never caught Ebola. People with the disease are noticeably ill and can be isolated.

But if Duncan had been carrying a new type of flu or a bug, the lack of an organized U.S. health response system could have been deadly.

And relying on the good will and untested competence of private hospitals is not a strategy that enables consistency. Different hospitals respond differently to health emergencies.

The costs for new protective garb needed to combat Ebola emerged just as suddenly as the virus itself, also.

From the outside America may seem to be a land of endless optimism and confidence. But could it be in danger of falling apart?

They call themselves preppers. Mainstream suburban Americans hoarding supplies and weapons while leading otherwise perfectly normal lives.

A former nuclear missile facility in the US that has now been turned into a high-tech refuge for people who fear the end of the world.

USA Has Supervolcano Contingency Plan
Disaster Preparedness
May 08, 2014

If the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts then millions of U.S. citizens could end up in Brazil, Australia, or Argentina.

That’s according to the South African news website Praag, which said that the African National Congress was offered $10 billion a year for 10 years if it would build temporary housing for Americans in case of an eruption.

The potential eruption of the supervolcano, one of the biggest in the world, has been a hot topic ever since videos of animals allegedly fleeing the area before an earthquake were posted online. Although the veracity of the claims haven’t been backed up, dozens of bloggers and others have been trying to figure out what, if anything, is going on.

After the Collapse: Six Likely Events That Will Follow an Economic Crash
Disaster Preparedness
January 21, 2014

It’s not too difficult to understand that we are well on our way to a paradigm shift in America; in fact we’re in the midst of it right now. The writing is on the wall and can no longer be ignored.

The US government has run up trillions of dollars in debt, and given the recent debates over the country’s debt ceiling, we can rest assured that neither Congress or the President will act to curtail spending and balance the budget. We will continue adding trillions of dollars to the national debt clock until such time that our creditors no longer lend us money.

From the monetary side, the Federal Reserve’s response to this unprecedented crisis has been to simply “print” more money as is necessary. On top of the trillions in dollars already printed thus far, the Fed continues quantitative easing to the tune of about $80 billion per month. It’s the only arrow left in the Fed’s quiver, because failing to inject these billions into stock markets and banks will lead to an almost instant collapse of the U.S. financial system. Unfortunately, the current strategy is chock full of its own pitfalls, the least of which being the real possibility of a hyperinflationary environment developing over coming months and years.

Smart phone technology boosts early warning for extreme weather, quakes
Disaster Preparedness
December 11, 2013
smart phones disaster preparedness
The system builds on a dense network of GPS receivers in the western US, initially installed to track changes in stress along the region's earthquake faults. By adding inexpensive temperature, air-pressure, and motion sensors common in today's smart phones, researchers have found that the system can arm forecasters and emergency managers with important information earlier and more frequently than existing techniques.

These same sensors can be installed in buildings, bridges, and other critical pieces of infrastructure to quickly help assess damage after a large earthquake, notes the team, led by Yehuda Bock, a researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif.
 
Rise of 'Billionaire Bunkers'...

Paranoid? Perhaps. But also increasingly commonplace. Futuristic security technologies–many developed for the military but sounding as though they came straight from James Bond’s Q–have made their way into the home, available to deep-pocketed owners whose peace of mind comes from knowing that their sensors can detect and adjust for, say, a person lurking in the bushes a half-mile away.

survive wrong disaster planning

At the center of every prepper is a great planner. Prepping is built around the idea of planning for unforeseen events to be ready when they come. But what if you plan for the wrong disaster and something you didn’t even see coming happens? You could be planning for a bank shutdown and an economic collapse, but instead a random solar flare knocks out all electronics and power.

Planning is great, and with a little help and foresight, you can learn how to plan for a disaster scenario and survive if you’re wrong. [SURVIVALBASED]
