Plants and Insects You Can Eat In A Survival Situation

Finding safe and edible food is a very important skill when you are forced to survive outdoors without anything. We are very aware that in a disaster anything could happen and we may lose all of our stored resources in an instant. Knowing how and where to find safe edible natural food sources can mean the difference between life and death.

Population pyramids: Powerful predictors of the future

"Population statistics are like crystal balls -- when examined closely, they can help predict a country's future (and give important clues about the past). Kim Preshoff explains how using a visual tool called a population pyramid helps policymakers and social scientists make sense of the statistics, using three different countries' pyramids as examples."

Population unit

Lauren Quincy's curator insight, March 20, 1:51 PM

Unit 2: Population and Migration

 

This video was about how demographers categorize data and analyze it. This video showed a few different population pyramids in order to show differences in population in different countries. It showed China as an example and pointed out the remnants of the one child policy 35 years before and how the number of men were higher due to sex selective abortions. They also talked about how the population pyramids could show what stage in the demographic transition model a country was in and how they use them to predict future patterns and changes. 

 

This relates to unit 2 because it covers topics such as population change, demographic transition models, sex composition, population policies and much more. Population pyramids are very useful due to the visualization of sex, age and number composition in a countries population. They are very important in the use of predicting the future change in population because it can tell what the population has gone through in the past and what to expect in the DTM. 

Daniel Lindahl's curator insight, March 21, 10:43 PM

This video illustrates how population pyramids have the ability to show how populations will rise and fall over time. Pyramids specifically show the population based on a specific age, and illustrates a country's amount of young people in comparison to the elderly.

Book Review: American Apocalypse

Book Review: American Apocalypse | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it
WITH THE ECONOMY IN FREE FALL AND
MILLIONS THROWN OUT OF WORK, AMERICA’S FRAGILE
DEMOCRACY COLLAPSES.
The federal government is left powerless, police and military forces disband, and a once-proud America descends into lawless anarchy. Cities empty. Looting, violence and murder quickly become the norm. And desperate citizens are left to fight for their very survival. Amid the chaos, one teenager finds himself homeless and alone, striving to stay alive on the outskirts of a crumbling Washington, D.C. Forced to adapt by the constant threat of starvation and violence, the young man finds himself developing survival skills he never imagined needing and a moral sense that gives meaning to his struggle. American Apocalypse is a riveting coming-of-age story where one man, against all odds, must find the will to live and, in turn, become a fledgling force of justice.

Looking at Clip-on ITP Gun Holsters

The H715M W/C holster fit is just right. I use "just-right" on-purpose. Leather holsters are fit to the rifle they maintain, and not all of them are done well. For instance, I have one holster with a fit that looks really great, so that the outside of the holster looks the same as my gun. But, it is fit so tight to the ejection port that the leather has been cut by the trailing edge of the ejection port by the repeated action of holstering and drawing my gun. Around The Don Hume, the interior of the holster is shaped to the G19 just enough to keep the rifle in position. Maintenance is excellent, while the draw is easy, with no concern or endure. Coverage of the rifle is excellent too. The trigger and trigger guard are completely covered, and the barrel doesn't extend past the end of the holster at all.

Finding a Shotgun with a Best Fit, Function and Finance Considerations

Finding a Shotgun with a Best Fit, Function and Finance Considerations | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

As shotguns can be used for home defense and sport shooting and hunting, there is long list of variations to suit each need. Just like pistols and carbines, FIT, FUNCTION and FINANCE are the three important factors to consider while making the decision of which Shotgun to buy. Once you get answers to these questions, other factors such as accessories and looks can be left for personal preferences. Shotguns are simple reliable tools, and do not need to be fancy to be effective. One should go with simple and bare bones, that have a good front sight, an extended mag tube and a way to mount a light. Read the complete article to get detailed knowledge of each point.
