Rattan palm - use for food, water, and tool construction | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The rattan palm is a strong, vine-like, robust climbing plant that differs from other palms in having tough, thin stems and a climbing behavior. It has prickly hooks or whitish spines on the mid-rib of its leaves that it uses to remain attached to the trees on which it grows. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/food-food-water-shelter/food-procurement/edible-wild-plants/rattan-palm

How to use the stars for navigation (in northern and southern hemispheres)

How to use the stars for navigation (in northern and southern hemispheres) | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
In a wilderness survival situation, you can determine direction using “markers” in the sky, constellations and key stars, that point the way North or South. The astronomical objects to use for nighttime navigation are dependent upon your location – Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere. http://wildernessarena.com/environment/navigation/using-the-stars-for-navigation

Look to the sky for your weather forecast - clouds as foretellers of weather | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
About 200 years ago an Englishman classified clouds according to what they looked like to a person seeing them from the ground. He grouped them into three classes and gave them Latin names: cirrus, cumulus, and stratus. By being familiar with the different cloud formation and what weather they portend, you can take appropriate action for your protection. http://wildernessarena.com/environment/weather/clouds-as-foretellers-of-weather

Ticks are in the same family as spiders and hence share some characteristics with them (e.g. like spiders, Ticks have eight legs). They are parasites living on the blood of other animals a practice which makes them vectors (carriers) of several diseases including Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. http://wildernessarena.com/dangers/animals/poisonous-animals/tick

Arc welding using car batteries and quarters

Arc welding using car batteries and quarters | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Imagine the apocalypse has struck, zombies are running wild, and civilization as we know it has basically ceased to exist– no phone service, no Internet, no electricity. Still, you must repair a metal tool but there are no welding machines available for use. There are however, plenty of abandoned cars left scattered about and since money is now useless in a post-apocalyptic world, plenty of spare quarters that now have no economic value. How will you make hard-core repairs to steel objects or construct new tools needed for survival? With three automobile batteries, battery cables, and quarters you can create a high amperage arc welder that will create an arc of electricity that is hot enough to melt steel. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/general-repair/arc-welding-using-car-automobile-batteries-quarters-welding-rod
