What Will Become Of The Old People TheSurvivalistBlog.net RSS Feed

by Lint Picker

Much has been written about caring for the young in our society during difficult times, but what will become of the old people?

We all know old people. Either we have elderly parents or grandparents or neighbors, or we are the elderly. Have you ever contemplated what you would do for (or to) the elderly in a SHTF scenario or during TEOTWAWKI? I have. Would you abandon them and save yourself? Or would you risk your own wellbeing in order to help them? Its a tough call and one that should be considered BEFORE things spiral out of control any further. Here are my thoughts on the...

This La Nia is expected to be relatively weak and short-lived. Typically, warmer- and drier-than-normal conditions occur over the South Central U.S. during a La Nia winter.

So here's my latest. It's about ready to go to the publisher, and as usual, I'll be taking down all but a short sample once it publishes. This one was written as part of a package deal. When I sent them the proposal for the Chucklers series, they said they liked the writing and the story, but that it didn't really fit their "normal" readership.

Staying Safe Online: Five Cyber Safety Tips Every Parent Should Teach Their Kids Ready Nutrition

Years ago, when my kids were in elementary school, I let one of them play a kids game on my computer. Hours later, when I got back on the computer, I had a virus. This was our first of many discussions about cyber safety.

Its safe to say that the internet is increasingly becoming more of an unsafe place thanks to new cyber threats coming out and child predators finding more sophisticated ways of accessing our childrens accounts. While this frightens parents, it doesnt seem to stop children from wanting to get online to play games, hang out with friends, or research. Parents must stay ever vigilant in making sure children know the threats that are out there.

As a parent, I have explained the dangers on the internet and what they need to avoid, but is this enough? We say our Stay Safe Online and Keep Away From Perverts lecture and send them on their merry way? There is much more that we must explain to them!

Part of having the responsibility of being on the internet is using it safely. These tips are musts for ensuring your kids are staying safe online.

  1. What you put out into the internet stays there even if you delete it. It is important to understand this and avoid making off-hand comments, bullying statements to other kids, etc. What you put on the internet now will stay on the internet. That means your future boss could read it, your childrens children could read it, so be aware of this.
  2. Check your basic security to see what is showing up on search engines. Doing a simple Google search on your name, address, etc. to see if your personal information is protected is a great start in making sure your kids are staying safe. Moreover, teach them to keep this information off the internet. That means not adding this to social media accounts. To be clear, kids and teens should not post their email address, physical home address, phone numbers or any information that compromises the safety of the family.
  3. Use the strictest privacy settings for social media accounts. With 73% of teens and 68% of young adults on social media, its hard to avoid. You still have a say in where they socialize online, so be present when they are setting up their accounts to ensure their privacy is protected. As well, instruct them not to put personal information out there. For instance, a teen posts a message on F...

Cloth Toilet Wipes: The Prepper Worlds Worst Idea Ever Preparedness Advice

On April 17, 2017, I went to Costco and filled my huge shopping cart with a total of 180 rolls of toilet paper. Double rolls. I felt like a king walking out of there with the cart piled high.

Cloth Toilet Paper The Prepper World's Worst Idea Ever via Preparedness Advice

Now, in early November, we have about 16 rolls left in a household of 2 adults and 2 older teenager. Two guys, two gals.

Not a bad investment, and Ive always been the kind of guy who likes to stock up anyway so I can avoid shopping. In prepper circles, though, a TP stash is looked down upon and most survival types worth their salt will say something like this, Forget stocking up on toilet paper. Use old t-shirts to make personal wipes, and just run them through the washing machine.

On the surface, it sounds ideal. None of us want to go back to the days of using corn cobs, leaves, or phone books. I understand that. But think for a moment about what is involved with using cloth as toilet paper. Saving and cutting up old t-shirts is the easy part.

Cloth toilet wipes a REALLY bad idea

First, used cloth wipes will have to be kept somewhere in a location that will not attract flies, pets, rodents, and other pests of all kinds. You may think that little bucket with a lid will do the job, but you havent met Lacey, our foster Great Pyrenees. Weve had to place a filled water jug, the gallon size, on our kitchen trash to Lacey-proof it. She and her other four-legged friends would love nothing better than to wallow around in poop and pee smelling t-shirts.

Oh, the glory of it all!!!

Slightly off topic a few weeks back, my wife and I pulled up to a CVS and right there on the sidewalk by the Redbox machine was a young couple washing down their 2 large dogs. The dogs were covered with suds and it was quite a sight. I asked why they were washing their dogs in front of a CVS store and was told, We were out jogging on the trails and the dogs found some armadillo carcasses. They started rolling around on them and now they stink too much to take home.

Animals love foul-smelling things, so if you go the cloth toilet paper route, keep that in mind.

A lot of preppers who took the cloth diaper/diaper pail route, swear that its the same thing with cloth wipes. To a point, theyre correct, but in a typical home, there is only one baby producing dirty diapers. In a house...

Bushcraft Building on Discovery Channel Survival Monkey Forums

So - new TV show. Still 'reality TV' - but this one seems to have a bit of real life, non-fiction involved.

Production values are reasonable, the HS drama that seems to infest these kind of shows was missing for the most part.

Would I take any of this as a good idea or even a good example? So far, not a chance.

I'm actually looking forwad to the next episode, and it has been entertaining - something really lacking these days.

Madagascar Outbreak: It Is Inevitable The Plague Becomes Resistant To Drugs SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

madagascarplague

The newest warning about the outbreak of the airborne pneumonic plague, or black death, in Madagascar has been released. Officials warn that its inevitable that this bacterial infection thats infected over 2000 people will become resistant to antibiotics.

The only way to treat a person who has contracted the plague is with antibiotics. But experts now warn that because they are being used so much to treat the infection, antibiotics resistance is inevitable and making this disease much more terrifying. Once the bacteria is resistant, the Madagascar healthcare system will be overwhelmed, and the disease will have control of the nation.

According to the Daily Mail, Madagascars healthcare system will be unable to cope if the deadly plague outbreak continues to escalate, a scientist has warned. Scores of doctors and nurses have been struck down with the disease, which is predicted to gather momentum in the coming weeks and there are growing fears hospitals will be unable to meet the illness burden. Official figures reveal at least 2,034 people have been infected with the medieval disease so far in what has been described as the worst outbreak in 50 years. The black death outbreak has so far claimed at least 165 lives.

Although the plague is responding well to antibiotics right now, drug resistance is also an increasing concern amongst experts who predict it will vastly accelerate the diseases death toll. Professor John Joe McFadden from the University of Surrey told...

A Porn Star And Rapper Coolio: Presidential Hopefuls For 2020 SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

porrnstarcoolio

A porn star and the rapper Coolio are two of the so-far presidential hopefuls to run against Donald Trump in 2020.  And both say their campaign has what it takes to beat the sitting president.

When Donald Trump won the election last year, porn star Cherie DeVille (whos running alongside rapper Coolio) says she sobbed. I didnt cry because I hated [Trump] specifically, I cried because of what I felt that meant for the direction our country was going in. Like many liberals who saw their world crumble because of Trumps election, DeVille found herself melting down. But then she decided to do something about it.

DeVille, whos starred in such videos as A$$ Planet and Hot Tub Hottie, says she was inspired to run for office out of her personal frustration for the current political climate. The porn star then, ironically, went into full blown hypocrite mode. Were voting for people as if were on a reality television show, and my concern is if we continue to purely vote for celebrities, or political figures, or the most entertaining, theyre not always going to be quality politicians, DeVille told ITK on Tuesday. So vote for the porn star! Thatll fix it!

The 39-year-old porn star said she was (surprise, surprise) going to run as a Democrat. If our criteria now for becoming a political official is minor celebrity, I have that, says DeVille, who boasts 190,000 Twitter followers. I feel like I can be potentially what Im feeling the American people for better or for worse want, which is interesting news, scandalous news, you know, not boring political news.

But at the same time [I can] do what the American people really need, she continues, which is having a person with integrity, and having someone listen to the people, and actually care about America in public office.

According to The Hill, DeVille (whose campaign slogan is Make America F Awesome Again) says a lot of people giggle when they learn that Gangstas Paradise rapper Coolio is running as h...

An Unexplained Light Flash Over Phoenix Was Captured On Security Cameras SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

phoenixflash

A bright flash ripped across Phoenix, Arizonas night sky last night, terrifying residents. The mysterious flash was caught on security cameras as concerned onlookers watched.

The remarkable bright object was spotted by numerous people in the area, with reports streaming in from Arizona and the surrounding states, including California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico.  

Subtle would be far from the correct way to describe that bright flash of light streaking downward. But, based on the fact that it is falling from the sky, scientists say that it was more than likely nothing more than a big hunk of space junk burning up in the atmosphere.

But that didnt stop people from taking to social media to share their experiences with the world. Something BRILLIANT just flew across the Phoenix sky around 8:30 this evening! the City of Phoenix, AZ tweeted last night. Check out what our Phoenix City Cam Captured!

The Last Time These 3 Ominous Signals Appeared Simultaneously Was Just Before The Last Financial Crisis SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse

crisis

We have not seen a leadership reversal, a Hindenburg Omen and a Titanic Syndrome signal all appear simultaneously since just before the last financial crisis. Does this mean that a stock market crash is imminent? Not necessarily, but as I have been writing about quite a bit recently, the markets are certainly primed for one. On Wednesday, the Dow fell another 138 points, and that represented the largest single day decline that we have seen since September. Much more importantly, the downward trend that has been developing over the past week appears to be accelerating. Just take a look at this chart. Could we be right on the precipice of a major move to the downside?

John Hussman certainly seems to think so. He is the one that pointed out that we have not seen this sort of a threefold sell signal since just before the last financial crisis. The following comes from Business Insider

On Tuesday, the number of New York Stock Exchange companies setting new 52-week lows climbed above the number hitting new highs, representing a leadership reversal that Hussman says highlights the deterioration of market internals. Stocks also received confirmation of two bearish market-breadth readings known as the Hindenburg Omen and the Titanic Syndrome.

Hussman says these three readings havent occurred simultaneously since 2007, when the financial crisis was getting underway. It happened before that in 1999, right before the dot-com crash. Thats not very welcome company.

In fact, every time we have seen these three signals appear all at once there has been a market crash.

Will things be different this time?

We shall see.

Alaska Prepares For War With North Korea: Missiles Will Take Only 20 Minutes To Reach The State SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

kimjongunmissile

The state of Alaska is preparing for a potential war with North Korea. The Alaskans are being urged not to evacuate, though should Kim Jong-Un launch a missile toward Alaska, it would only take 20 minutes to get there.

Emergency planners in Alaska have warned it will not attempt evacuations if a warhead is fired because time would not be on their side. Jeremy Zidek, from the states disaster planning team, will urge locals to find shelter rather than risk being caught in the open. He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios, and medical supplies including the anti-radiation pill Prussian Blue medication that lessens the radiological impacts on your body.

Tensions have escalated lately on the Korean peninsula after a series of missile tests in the hermit kingdom and propagandized media threats were made sentencing president Donald Trump to death. Tyrant Kim Jong-un has since threatened a nuclear holocaust and there are fears the regime will soon have a missile capable of reaching the US mainland.

Zidek admitted that the states defensive facilities could be picked for an attack. Alaska is home to Fort Greely, where the US has interceptor rockets designed to destroy incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The state also has missile defenses at the Pacific Spaceport Complex as well as radar warning systems at Clear Air Force Station.

We have the missile defense system here. We have missiles and radars in a number of different locations, Zidek said. Perhaps there would be some type of attack on those military facilities to try to hinder our ability to react to any missile launches. But Zideks warnings for Alaska get even m...

Tough Times ~ Monica Hay Quaker

"Have you noticed that empathy-producing experiences are great vehicles to channel our love? You can form an immediate kinship with someone who has walked in your shoes, and intuitively know the best way to support them. Believe me, if I ever encounter a mother of small children who is laid up with a broken ankle, I would be able to name ten needs off the top of my head and how to fill them. Also, if your dog ever got sprayed in the head by a skunk at six in the morning while you were trying to pull him out from under a pallet where the skunk was hiding, come talk to me. Tough times not only soften our hearts, but show us how to serve. A true gift will express appreciation, lighten a load, or add value to another person. What a relief that I don't have to shop for it. What a joy to know that we are here to be needed and purposeful, a shining light on the journey."

The Worlds First Space Nation Now Has A Satellite Flying Above The Earth SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

asgardia

On November 12, Asgardia cemented its presence in outer space by launching the Asgardia-1 satellite.  The nation is slowing coming to fruition.

The nanosat  is roughly the size of a loaf of bread and undertook a two-day journey from NASAs Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the United States, to the International Space Station (ISS). It contains 0.5 TB of data belonging to 18,000 of Asgardias citizens, such as family photographs, as well as digital representations of the space nations flag, coat of arms, and constitution. While Asgardias citizens will remain based on earth, for the time being, the satellite launch brings the nation one step closer to space.
Asgardia-1 made its journey to the ISS aboard the OA-8 Antares-Cygnus, a NASA commercial cargo vehicle.
Now it must wait for about three weeks as vital supplies and scientific equipment are transferred from the NASA ship to the six people currently living at the ISS. The nanosat will then be detached from the NASA vehicle and begin its own orbital journey around the earth. Citizens data will remain in orbit for between five and 18 months, the typical lifespan of this type of satellite. It will then burn out and disappear.
Russian scientist Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli founded the worlds first independent nation to operate in outer space in October 2016. Named after a Norse mythological city of the skies, Asgardia is free to join and so far, about 114,000 people have signed up. Within 40 hours of the project being announced in 2016, over 100,000 people had applied for citizenship on Asgardias website. After three weeks, Asgardia had 500,000 applicants. Anyone over 18 years old, with an email address, regardless of gender, nationality, race, religion, and financial standing can apply for citizenship including ex-convicts, provided they are clear of charges at...

Safer Holidays | A Reason To Stay Inside on Black Friday Survival Life

We all know about the joys of Black Friday and the inconvenience that comes with it as well, which give us more reasons to just stay at home. Check out the post below and find out why its best to just stay inside during Black Friday!

Black Friday: A Holiday Madness

It confounds me to no end that every Thanksgiving, a day in which we give thanks for all that we have, is immediately followed by a day created by retailers to prey on us by luring us in with the prospect of deep discounts on items on our wish lists. There are various reasons why it is better to just stay in the comfort of our home rather than head to the mall, which is like entering a mosh pit at a rock concert. If you dont mind getting bumped, shoved, and people violating your personal space for a doorbuster item, then go ahead, its your choice. But for those people who are having second thoughts of going out this Black Friday, here are some of the best reasons why you should sit this one out.

1. It is better to sleep in

It is better to sleep in | Safer Holidays | A Reason To Stay Inside on Black Friday
A 10% discount on a sweater is not reason enough to go out and cut the holiday short. Some people simply just want to stay home and sleep in. Waking up 4 A.M. or earlier just to get to the sales or wait in line for doorbusters is not worth it.

You probably still have a hangover from celebrating Thanksgiving and it is not the right time to drive or go shopping. It is better to spend more time with...

A Good Guy With A Gun Stopped A Sexual Assault In An Uber-Leftist City SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

joshwilliams

A good guy with a gun in the uber-lefty city of Austin, Texas, used his Glock 43 to stop a sexual assault in progress while out on an early morning hike. Meanwhile, in the news thats not news, leftists continue to cry for more restrictions on guns.

According to The Blaze, Josh Williams, 39, almost left his handgun at home when heading out to the hiking trail on a dark morning back in September, but he felt the nagging sensation that he should take it anyway. His gut instinct turned out to be the right call because while on the trail at 5:30 a.m., Williams heard a woman scream loud enough to get past his music-blaring earbuds.

As Williams approached the area where the scream originated from, he shined his flashlight on a man who was sexually assaulting a woman. I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her, Williams recalled. He then asked the man to get on his knees and asked to see his hands. That way I knew he didnt have a weapon. And at that point, he was no threat, so I didnt feel the need to shoot him, said Williams.

The assaulter took off, but police were able to later apprehend 22-year-old Richard McEachern and charge him with sexual assault.  A good description of his appearance by the victim and Williams aided the police.

That was the first time Williams had ever pointed his weapon at another person, but it confirmed for him the importance of the Second Amendment, and the victim was incredibly glad that Williams gut instinct told him to bring his gun with him that morning.

Its dark, and I dont know whats out there, so I have it to protect myself and other people. Thats what its all about anyway to help other people with it, not just myself. I didnt think Id ever have to pull it. Did I want to? No, not at all. But just right place, right time, Williams recounted.

Saudi Coup Signals War And The New World Order Reset SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.com

saudi-arabia

For years now, I have been warning about the relationship of interdependency between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia and how this relationship, if ended, would mean disaster for the petrodollar system and by extension the dollars world reserve status. In my recent articles Lies And Distractions Surrounding The Diminishing Petrodollar and The Economic End Game Continues, I point out that the death of the dollar as the premier petrocurrency is actually a primary goal for establishment globalists. Why? Because in an effort to achieve what they sometimes call the global economic reset, or the new world order, a more publicly accepted centralized global economy and monetary framework is paramount. And, this means the eventual implementation of a single world currency and a single global economic and political authority above and beyond the dollar system.

But, it is not enough to simply initiate such socially and fiscally painful changes in a vacuum. The banking powers are not interested in taking any blame for the suffering that would be dealt to the masses during the inevitable upheaval (or blame for the suffering that has already been caused). Therefore, a believable narrative must be crafted. A narrative in which political intrigue and geopolitical crisis make the new world order a NECESSITY; one that the general public would accept or even demand as a solution to existing instability and disaster.

That is to say, the globalists must fashion a propaganda story to be used in the future, in which selfish nation-states abused their sovereignty and created conditions for calamity, and the only solution was to end that sovereignty and place all power into the hands of a select few wise and benevolent men for the greater good of the world.

I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been...

The FDA, however, set a date for late 2016 to rule Kratom a Schedule I drug (the same

Democrats Have Done It: Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump Introduced SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

impeachtrump

Democrats holding political offices have been threatening to impeach Donald Trump since he was elected a year ago.  Now, they have finally officially introduced articles of impeachment against the president.

Several house democrats introduced the articles of impeachment citing Trumps violations of the Constitution. But the six Democrats, Representatives Steve Cohen of Tennessee, Luis Gutirrez of Illinois, Al Green of Texas, Adriano Espaillat of New York, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, and John Yarmuth of Kentucky, said at a press conference that the five articles of impeachment come out of concern for the countrys national security.

We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and weve introduced five articles of impeachment, Cohen said at a press conference. The lawmakers pointed to numerous actions by Trump that they say make him unfit to be president, but they singled out five severe actions by the president they say rise to a level meriting impeachment.

The articles of impeachment cite Trumps firing of James Comey which they believe to be an obstruction of justice, perceived violations of the Emoluments Clause (which prohibits federal titles of nobility), as well as actions undermining the judiciary and freedom of the press.

Given the magnitude of the constitutional crisis, theres no reason for delay, said Cohen, the sponsor of the resolution. The impeachment clause, Green said, was drafted for a time such as this and a president such as this. Green had introduced impeachment articles of his own last month, largely focused on accusations that Trump has sown racial and ethnic di...

Ex-Secret Service Agent Claims Biden Engaged in Weinstein-Level Groping SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This report was originally published by Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars.com

joe-biden

An ex-Secret Service agent is claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden engaged in Weinstein-level sexual assault and that he would walk around the VP residence late at night completely naked.

According to Big League Politics Cassandra Fairbanks, a Secret Service agent who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that Biden would mess with every single woman or teen, and that a Christmas get-together at the VPs house had to be canceled because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriends asses.

He also said that the Service often had to protect female agents from him and that Biden was prone to parading around the VP residence late at night with no clothes on.

I mean, Stark naked Weinstein level stuff, said the agent.

During one alleged incident in 2009, Biden cupped the breast of a Secret Service agents girlfriend during a photo, prompting the agent to shove Biden and almost hit him. The agent was subsequently suspended for a week, according to the source.

Men would often stand in front of female agents and Navy women or create false pretenses to have them leave the room just to get them away from Biden, according to the agent.

Best-selling author Ronald Kessler previously claimed in his book that Biden was fond of swimming naked and that female Secret Service agents found that offensive.

In a February 2015 article entitled What are we going to do about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden?, the Washington Posts Alexandra Petri highlighted a number of incidents where Biden made women feel uncomfortable by getting close and touching them.

There are innumerable videos online that show Biden touching children and whispering into their ears. A thread tweeted by Richard Armande Mills on Monday highlights an alarming number of these incidents.

Motor soft starters and VFD for off grid Survival Monkey Forums

Or at the very least I'm reducing power consumption while atempting to inch my way off grid.

My first small step towards off grid was power factor correcting my air compressors and welding machines. Originally I did this to allow then to work better on long extension cords, be more efficient and make then draw less amps.

Next step, will be to greatly reduce starting inrush current on air comoressors.

To do this I am going to try the simplest solution first. And that is a using a closed...

Rabid Anti-Trumper Arrested For Threatening To Go On A Killing Spree SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

davidkennethsmith

A rabid anti-Trumper has been arrested in California for placing menacing videos of himself tossing around threats on YouTube. David Kenneth Smith, a 39-year-old leftist actually recorded himself threatening to go on a killing spree.

According to PJ Media, Smith was arrested in Orange County, California, on November 2 following an investigation involving the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats after threatening a university professor through emails and posting threatening YouTube videos in one he talked about going on a killing spree. Police also recovered nine loaded firearms all registered to Smith after his arrest, according to Orange County Sheriffs Department officials.

Smith, who attended Soka University, sent an instructor a link to a YouTube video that showed him sitting with a semiautomatic pistol on his chest talking about the university, according to the Sheriffs Department. After Smith sent the menacing video, police were called by the instructor and Smith was arrested.

According to the LA Times, in another video, posted last week, Smith goes on a strange rant about choosing between suicide and mass murder in a video titled What Good Does Killing Ever Do? In that video, he explored the pros and cons of going on a killing spree, and decided that it sounded like a great idea compared to dying or committing suicide.

Should I be homeless or go on a killing spree? he asks in the video. I think being homeless is an entirely artificial situation. I wasnt born here to obey every rule you guys ever made, OK? I was born to be who I am.

But his odd video titl...

Scientists Look For Signs Of Alien Life On Newly Discovered Planet SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

space-planets-universe

A mere 11 light-years away from our Solar System, a newly discovered exoplanet is the second-closest weve ever found thats temperate enough to potentially host and sustain life. The Earth-sized exoplanet was just discovered and scientists are already searching for signs of life.

Ross 128 b orbits the inactive red dwarf star, Ross 128, in the systems Goldilocks zone. This zone is known as the area in perfect distance from a star to support life. The planet is also probably rocky, not gaseous; and its at a distance from its star that means the temperature could be hospitable to life as we know it.

It was found using the European Southern Observatorys High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) in Chile the most precise instrument of its kind. And it took researchers a long time to nail down. We started to observe this star in July 2005, astronomer Nicola Astudillo-Defru of Geneva Observatory told ScienceAlert. Since 2013, our monitoring started to be more intense, and only after acquiring 157 observations was the signal of the planet strong enough to be detected.

The researchers were able to discover the planet using the radial velocity method of planet detection. This method differs from the transit method we usually hear about but it shows this technique still has a whole lot of potential for finding new exoplanets.

Heres what we know about Ross 128 b so far. Its 1.35 times the mass of Earth. This means its most likely a rocky planet since as far as we know at least, gas planets tend to be giants.

Thats the other point in favour of Ross 128 b being a rocky planet: its relatively close to its host star. In fact, its 20 times closer to its star than Earth is to the Sun, and completes an entire orbit in 9.9 days.

Why isnt it too hot for life? Ross 128 is a cool...

Realistic Disaster Scenarios That Can Happen Survival Life

What disaster scenarios are most likely to happen that people should definitely be prepared for? While global disasters are almost impossible to predict, the world that man walked on for millennia has always posed as being an obvious threat to himself.

Disaster Scenarios and Global Threats to Prepare For

Throughout the years, scientists have continuously been finding ways to predict natural disasters before they actually happen. Theres been a degree of success in this area, thanks to the growth of modern technology. However, nature can still be very unpredictable and can easily claim so many lives in a short period of time. At the same time, there will be personal and local threats you will also face alongside global disasters. To help you be more prepared, here is an emergency preparedness plan in case the situation gets way out of hand.

Personal disasters are more likely to happen than global ones. Things like burglary, personal theft, or assault, are the possible dangers we all face in our daily lives. These small-scale SHTF scenarios can lead to bigger, unwanted problems if things turn out really bad.
