Survival Kits – Build Your Own – Part 2
In the initial article concerning survival kits we really just skimmed the surface of uses, necessity, and contents. To provide a better basis for what a person might want to include in a survival kit it’s important to take into account the following factors.CO2 Fire Extinguishers Fight Wasps
A woman in Attleboro was viciously attacked recently by a huge swarm of wasps which resulted in her being hospitalised with over 500 agonising stings. As fire fighters were called to assist the woman they too came under sustained attack by the insects as they battled them off with ice cold blasts from their CO2 fire extinguishers.2012 Prophecy The End Is Near
Prophecies are as old as time and come from every area of the world. In times past it was customary to consult with the prophets before engaging in any state sponsored action, these prophets were thought to have the ear of the gods or God himself.How To Prevent Your House From Earthquakes

“The time has come to get our houses in order…. There is a portent of stormy weather ahead to which we had better give heed” (President Gordon B. Hinckley “To the Boys and to the Men,” Ensign, Nov. 1998, 53). Tragedy can strike at any time. We need to be ready, church leaders have counseled members for decades to be prepared in case of an emergency.Emergency Preparedness – Isn’t It Important?
For many latter-day saints, emergency preparedness seems an overwhelming task. It perpetually occupies a spot near the bottom of the “to do” list-we don’t want to forget about it, but neither do we want to make the time for it. But we should remember that it’s important to heed prophetic counsel regarding physical as well as spiritual matters.Family Emergency Preparedness – Why and How?
Of all the commandments and counsel we receive from our church leaders, none are clearer or more detailed than to be prepared for the future. And yet, none seem to be forgotten so soon after we turn off the TV at the end of conference.Emergency Preparedness Tips
In this mortal existence none of us will escape the storms of life. Our loving Heavenly Father has created a beautiful world that was prepared to help us through this experience. There will be times of prosperity and joy and there will be times of little and sadness.The Recent Increase in Media Survival Information
I have noticed recently that many of the newspapers, magazines and television stations are now escalating their number of survival articles which they produce. It is almost as if they are trying to tell us something without actually coming out and stating that we should be prepared for the inevitable.Safe Times With Self Defense Weapons
When it comes to military self defense, people have this idealistic notion that we should only use our fists and legs and ignore all else. This is all well and good in theory, but do you really think that the average thug cares much for chivalric ideas or fair play? Get one thing straight, once someone attacks you they waive all rights to a fair fight. In the streets, it is hurt or be hurt and the only thing that matters is getting home safe. Besides, when someone is endangering your very life the last thing you should be thinking about is whether you should use a bottle in self defense.How to Defend Yourself Even Without Martial Arts Moves
There is bad news and good news when it comes to street crime. The bad news is that it’s increasing. There is no getting away from that fact. Even though it is well known that police forces like to mask the real crime rates, even their possibly filtered down statistics suggest that crime is on the up. The good news is that street thugs are not particularly bright or brave so anyone who knows how to fight back is likely to be able to successfully fend them off. Even better news is that learning martial arts moves to help you defeat them is not necessary as some old fashioned street fighting maneuvers could be enough.Watch Out for Mistakes in Self Defense Training Programs
Deciding to purchase a hand to hand combat training video is the second most important decision you make when it comes to self defense. Choosing the right one is the most vital and also the hardest. Even though you may find dozens of training programs with similar titles, rest assured that they are not all the same. While the principles should be similar they are not. This is because most of these videos are garbage and are ineffective when it comes to defending yourself against a street attack. What you need is a self defense training program that is flexible and useful in any situation, not something that will only be effective in certain situations.The Difficulties Encountered When Finding Good Self Defense Videos
Fear sells and scammers are aware of this in every walk of life. Home security firms explain that your home will be burgled if you don’t purchase their hi-tech $30,000 system, merchants tell you that no one loves bald men and you must buy their ‘hair in a drum’ to be seen as young and virile and con artists like to sell self defense videos which assure you that only physical pain awaits you if you ignore their product. There must be thousands of such videos out there and picking a good one is like finding a needle in a mountain range of haystacks.Why Self Defense Tactics Don’t Just Involve Fighting
You could go to self defense classes every week and feel pretty confident about being able to take care of yourself but unless you have a set of effective self defense tactics, you could be in for a nasty surprise one day. Just because you know a few maneuvers doesn’t mean that you are any less likely to get attacked. A thug will not suddenly look at you and say to themselves ‘oh, that person knows self defense, I better run along’. No attacker knows the strengths of their victim, all they see is weakness. And no amount of martial arts techniques you have learned recently will save you from their clutches unless you have some plan of action. This is necessary to ensure that you don’t freeze when it comes to the crunch.Why You Should Have No Excuses Not to Learn Self Defense
Suggestions that it is unnecessary to learn self defense are wide of the mark and frankly, dangerous. Even if you live in what seems like a safe area, all it take is one thug and one incident to change your life forever. It would be foolish to put your safety and that of your family’s at risk which is why it is necessary to learn some techniques to give you peace of mind. There are literally hundreds of courses out there with the regular training course seemingly a thing of the past. With our increasingly hectic schedules, it is simply not possible to attend a class on a specific day at a set time. We need flexibility to suit our schedules which is why online courses come in so handy.
