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'...
Disaster Preparedness
November 28, 2013
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.

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?

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]

'Learned helplessness' : Major cities unprepared to cope in natural disasters
Disaster Preparedness
October 22, 2013
disaster helplessness
Emergency experts say a learned helplessness has left Australians in major cities unprepared to cope in natural disasters. With the increasing impact of extreme heatwaves, storms, fires and floods, experts say traditional reliance on emergency services and recovery support such as cash handouts needs to be urgently reviewed if Australia is to better survive both the effects and escalating costs of such disasters.

Emergency expert Lewis Winter from Charles Sturt University says Australians need to prepare themselves for a situation where emergency services are unable to help them. "What people have got to know is that they're on their own, literally on their own," he said.
 
Lock and Load: Are You Prepared for Civil Unrest?

civil unrest
Do you get the feeling that we are right on the verge of chaos?  With the government shutdown, the congressional budget deadline of the 17th, the EBT system under threat, and assorted “drills” that, if history proves to be any guide, could be a loose cover for an upcoming false flag, we could be looking at civil unrest in a matter of days.These are all situations that we, as individuals, have little control over. What we CAN control is our response to a crisis.

By planning ahead, we can avoid the fear, panic, and confusion that leads people to rush to the store and clear the shelves like a horde of hungry locusts.  We can stay away from the angry masses, the rioters who will use any excuse to steal, and the hungry people who are determined to feed their kids no matter who stands in their way. Whether the next few weeks lead to pandemonium due to the welfare strings being cut or some type of martial law, a prepared mindset, a defense plan, and a well-stocked home can help to keep you and your family out of harm’s way.

Risk management can help poor people overcome crises and get ahead
Disaster Preparedness
October 09, 2013
overcome crises
Drought, pandemic, tsunami, violent crime, financial meltdown – the world is full of risks, and the poor are often most vulnerable to their effects. Instead of simply responding to crises, aid workers and policymakers should anticipate and help to guard against such rare and potentially devastating events, according to the World Bank's world development report 2014, published this week.

"We're advocating a sea change in the way risk is managed," the World Bank president, Jim Yong Kim, says. "Our new approach calls for individuals and institutions to shift from being 'crisis fighters' to proactive and systematic risk managers." -- After the world suffered major crises in 2008, including shocks to the global financial system and spikes in the prices of food and fuel, the concept of risk management has gained prominence in international development. The links between risk, livelihoods and poverty are all too clear, the World Bank report says.
 
The Collapse Of Detroit, a Glimpse Of Our Future?

The city of Detroit was built in the same way our country was built; our country was founded on the belief of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Is the collapse of Detroit a glimpse of our future? On a larger scale the events that have been adding up over the years that are putting Detroit “out of business” resemble the very same events we face on a national level today.

Government corruption funded by corrupt unions and inept government micromanagement took a thriving city and brought it to its knees. [LINK]
 
Government shutdown 101: 12 ways it could affect you

September 25, 2013
If Congress fails to fund the federal government by Oct. 1, the start of the new fiscal year, the government will go into partial shutdown. Some government functions – those deemed essential – will continue as usual, while others will be suspended. If a shutdown proceeds the way it would have in 2011 (had the last funding impasse had not been resolved in time), 800,000 of 2.1 million federal employees would be furloughed.Here is a list of what to expect if a shutdown takes place:
