The US-based group, B612 Foundation, which includes a number of former Nasa astronauts, campaigns on the issue of space protection.

It hopes a new visualisation will press home the idea that impacts are more common than we think.

The presentation leans on data collected by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

The CTBTO operates a network of sensors that listens out for clandestine atom bomb detonations.

I am sure this has been discussed before, but I did not come upon any recent threads and figured we could stand another session any way. In your "bug out bag" what medical supplies do you have? Everyone has a little different perspective I am sure so feel free to add to the list. I will start and since I can not find the list I had typed I will try from memory.

Assorted Sizes Band-Aids
Small & Large Non stick pads
Trauma (ABD) Pads
Butterfly sutures
Dermabond (or even Crazy glue)

What all medical supplies do you have in your bag?

Poland and the United States will announce next week the deployment of U.S. ground forces to Poland as part of an expansion of NATO presence in Central and Eastern Europe in response to events in Ukraine. That was the word from Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, who visited The Post Friday after meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck...

No wonder we do not "Buy China" products. If it's not lead paint then it's polluted water and land use.

Shopping around on CL for a "Project" to do this summer/fall. Something I need at my hunting location is a decent ATV, currently all I have is my feet or a small riding mower.

I found a couple of ads on CL, indicating that the ATV "needs work", but I was wanting to find out from people with more experience with ATV's what I should look for?

For example, this AD:
I have a 1990 honda fourtrax 300 4 by 4 runs good it's fast but needs both CV the front with.out it the 4 by.4 dnt work...

@Quigley_Sharps and all other Monkeys, in need of New Boots.....

During August of last year, we made some major changes to our backend technology, and in the process, broke a lot of The Breakroom's functionality. As a result, we haven't had a sale in over seven months. It's pathetic, we know.

A few years ago I came across this knife at a gun show and ended up purchasing two of them later online. They seem to be very well built but I have not found much in the way of reviews on them. Has anyone else owned/used one of these knives?

Cop Buys Groceries for Mom Caught Shoplifting
Miami officer uses own money to help out family
By John Johnson, Newser Staff

(Newser) – The routine part of this shoplifting story out of Miami is that police stopped a woman trying to leave a supermarket with $300 worth of unpaid-for food. The not-so-routine part: Upon hearing that the accused was a mother of three in dire straits, the...

Well, I might as well post here, maybe this will help keep me on track!

Starting off with the basics.
Weight: 248
Height: 6'
Age 40

Background, I have always had a "belly" even in HS. I think I've tried every diet under the sun and workout routine but could never loose any weight. I have been diagnosed with "fatty liver disease", so in a nut shell, it's HARD for me to loose any weight.

My cholesterol and triglycerides have always been off the chart high (highest triglycerides level was...

I have an old android phone, a Samsung Galaxy Y that I am using as a mobile 3G router and there's some things thats bothering me
I have installed Avast antivirus free on the said phone but when I try and turn on the firewall it says IP6 is not supported. I guess this has to do with the Android version on the phone but there's no updates through Samsung to support this feature. I have read a bit about using a custom Rom such as Cyagenmod on the device and I think I'll be trying that out.

Android router?

I found Melbo's post regarding the Primal Blueprint and was intrigued by his reports. I investigated the reviews of the PB and jumped in with both feet about two weeks ago when I began my transition to Primal. It has been very easy physically. Mentally, I have been challenged by my cravings and the menu changes to accomplish the cooking tasks since I'm the one that cooks most of the meals in our home. My wife has been supportive and very receptive to the idea of the different recipes that...

Figure I need to teach my early teen daughter about bees (just the bees!! mom can deal with the birds!) Trying to introduce her to a number of experiences. Had her remove the trap and unclog the bathroom sink last week. So, pulled the trigger on getting a couple hives and getting back into bees. Ordered two packages with queens. Should have them mid April. I used to have bees, oh golly, like 30-40 years ago. Got up to 18 hives then moved, lived in a city, etc. My mother kept them going...
