Henry Reich, creator of the MinutePhysics series of videos on, shows the chaos going on in Venezuela these days in his latest work. Apparently, an illustrator for MinuteEarth- Ever Salazar- has a ringside seat to the dire situation the South American country is in (I blogged about the food shortages back on April 3). […]

I recently stumbled on a preparedness blog- The Great Northern Prepper, “Where Preparedness is a state of mind as well as a style of life”- by ex-Marine and security contractor Richard Morgan. The Alaska native has amassed a large number of prepping resrouces (in .pdf format) on his aptly-named “Prepper Resouces” page. “Over 570 and […]

Tonight, I’ll be blogging about a documentary entitled 10 Ways to End the World. It originally aired on the National Geographic Channel back in 2012, but I saw it for the […]
