"Criminals are creatures of habit, just like everyone else. Chances are, if a criminal breaks into your house looking for loot, they are going to check the most likely spots first for valuables. They don’t want to get caught, so they are going to limit the amount of time they spend rifling through your things. To defeat this common criminal, you must outthink them. Hiding valuables in a very odd spot is a good way to do it. In this video, you can learn how to turn an innocuous jar of salad dressing into the perfect hiding spot."
Evasion Skills Considerations for the Evader, Part Two
"Prepping is not about showing off your gun or your bunker or your survival skills. It’s about staying alive and rule #1 is to avoid conflict altogether.

"I’m still afraid of tornadoes, and if you live in an area where tornadoes are possible, you should be too! You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to be prepared, so you will know what to do. So what is the first step?"
"Some of you probably got a little overwhelmed by my article where I enlisted pretty much every survival skill you can think of. There’re over 120 of them and I’ll probably add more when I happen to notice I missed one. I can understand that… between family and having a job, it’s hard to find time to improve one’s skills. In this article I’m going to give you a short list of the basic survival skills that are most important for SHTF situations or even just smaller scale critical events. Let’s focus on these first before we move on to more advanced things such as woodworking, butchering an animal or making homemade beauty products. Note: in the aforementioned article you’ll be surprised to notice there’s already a “basic survival skills list”. It’s actually the first one. That particular list encompasses the skills that area easy/beginner level. The list below, however, contains the only essential skills you need to have."

Histamine reactions are a major part of type I hypersensitivity reactions, including asthma attacks. Hypersensitivity is defined as an abnormal sensitivity to a stimulus of any kind. Such abnormal sensitivities are bounded by antigens, defined as a protein or oligosaccharide marker on the surface of cells that identifies the cell as self or non-self; the type of cell is identified; the antigens then stimulate the production of antibodies by B-lymphocytes that will neutralize or destroy the cell if necessary; they stimulate cytotoxic responses."
"A relatively new and obscure document, U.S. Army Special Operations Command “ARSOF Operating Concept” is the blueprint for Jade Helm. This document does not boldly use phrases such as “extracting political dissidents”, but it does use “legal language” to basically communicate the same messages that many in the Independent Media have been telling the public about for 6 weeks, namely, that ARSOF is going to be used to extract political dissidents and then enforce martial law. Key phrases and terms of the ARSOF document are presented here so as to have no misunderstanding as to meaning and intent. Other relevant military documents are mentioned in order to reinforce the interpretation of the ARSOF, Jade Helm inspired document."
"I want to give a shout out to Dan from Huntsville, Alabama. He witnessed multiple convoys passing through the area. He has night footage as well he is sending. But what is most concerning is the UN Military Police Vehicles. This is the 3rd time I Have reported on them being in the US. Now we know for sure that UN is here, but the question now is, WHAT FOR?"
" For those of a certain generation, one of the best childhood memories is the day the Sears Christmas catalog arrived in the mail. Kids eagerly grabbed the book, which was at least an inch thick, and started their holiday gift lists. Now local law enforcement agencies can experience that same sense of anticipation and unbridled joy as they choose which spy equipment they want from Uncle Sam’s Big Technology Wish Book, or as it’s officially known, the National Security Agency 2014 Technology Catalog (pdf)."
"Virtually any situation can lead to stress and regardless of the situation the effects on your mind and body will usually be the same. Often, events that cause stress occur simultaneously. The event is not stress, but the event that produces the stress is called a stressor. Your Response to an Emergency Is Often Times Fight or Flight. You have a split second to decide whether standing and fighting is the best way to survive or whether getting away as quickly as possible is the smart move. If you have not anticipated this reaction, you may not even be aware of it happening, but deep in the brain something is triggered and your feet and hands will be operating essentially on their own. To deal with stressors you have to anticipate them and then have a strategy to deal with them. The types of stressors you may encounter are as follows."
"ungsten is an amazing metal: hard and dense, with the highest melting point of all elements, tungsten is used in many industrial and military applications where high temperatures or radiation are an issue. Alas, with a density very close to that of gold, it has also become the material of choice for many in the business of faking gold coins or bars. Professional sellers like Kitco will use a combination of markings (micro-tags, holograms, DNA tags etc.) and buyers use multiple tests (dimension / weight ratio, XRF, conductivity etc.) together with plausibility checks to determine if an item is real. As a collector or private investor, how do you protect yourself from falling victim to forgeries, tungsten or otherwise?"
"I use overhead chicken waterers that my chickens cannot foul. I am going to describe how to build your own in less than five minutes for between $13-$16. These waterers work great to deliver clean water to your flock. A 2 gallon waterer will last about a week for six chickens. I use (2) for my flock of twelve. The plastic bucket will last longer if kept in the shade. In the winter you may have to switch out the buckets when frozen, and when really cold, you will need a heated water bucket."
"Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is one of the few members of Congress who has taken the time to jump through the hoops and read the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But, he has gone a step farther than other members – he told members of Congress what he read. He told the truth about what the TPP says and why Congress should oppose it in a five page letter to his colleagues."
"How many times has the mainstream media mentioned the USA Freedom Act? Well, if you did hear of this legislation, you must have been watching C-SPAN or a foreign press channel. Read a report from NPR, that government funded broadcast, which never fails to present a known editorial viewpoint. “The USA Freedom Act extends many parts of the 2001 USA Patriot Act, which expires June 1. The measure’s fate in the Senate is less likely."

"There’s no denying that for many of us, times are tight. Many homes have a basket by the door full of unopened bills. Bank accounts are in overdraft. Every week the charges at the grocery store are a little bit higher than the week before, and for less food. Kids want new clothes and that latest video game, the car needs to be fixed, and people’s jobs are draining the very life from them. It is vital to take time out of the day to relax. It rejuvenates you, improves your health, and calms your mind so that you can think more clearly. Relaxation, creative activities, and family time can actually be a frugal endeavors, and not distractions that take away from your efforts to make ends meet. When you have a million and one things to do, though, sometimes it’s difficult to force yourself to stop. This is because stress releases two hormones into your body: adrenaline and cortisol. Excesses of these hormones can cause blood pressure spikes, food cravings that lead to weight gain, and heart disease, to name just a few of the pitfalls. So, you’ve got to unwind. You need a hobby."
"Bill wants readers of SGT Report to understand that “the stock market(s) are merely a side show to the grand Big Top circus of the credit markets because the credit (bond) markets are so much larger than the equity markets.” And Bill says when the credit markets implode – EVERYTHING will implode. So how will it all end? Bill explains, “This is going to be an overnight or over the weekend type of event where you have what you have on a Friday and you wake up on a Monday morning and you can’t trade anything and you’re locked in to your position. So it’s absolutely imperative that you have what you WANT to have, because you won’t have a chance to change it” And Bill asks, “Do realize that gold and silver are THE only monies out there that are not “credit based” or derive their values via the credit markets … markets which will ultimately will be closed?” The choice is yours, paper brokerage account statements and ones and zeros on a computer screen, or real physical wealth. The time to make your decision is running out."
