Who's really behind the DNC/NSA hacks? Russia, Snowden, independent hacker, or hybrid of all three?

Who's really behind the DNC/NSA hacks? Russia, Snowden, independent hacker, or hybrid of all three? | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Regardless of whether you consider Edward Snowden’s leaks of classified information to be self-sacrificial acts of patriotism or the deeds of a traitor, the recent DNC data dump and NSA cyber weapons malware (milware?) code drops have all the markings of a Snowden escapade. If you disagree, consider the timing of the code drop and who has the most to gain. http://geekslop.com/2016/whos-really-behind-dncnsa-hacks-russia-snowden-independent-hacker-hybrid-three

WTF?!? Trump finally releases economic plan in Detroit and his minions are gonna riot | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Harsh agitations aside, a lot of what Trump says makes sense – a least to some degree. Then he goes and does something goofy like releasing an economic plan that to his minions, must feel like a punch in the face. Here’s what Trump plans to do and why it’s so outrageously bizarre. http://geekslop.com/2016/trump-releases-economic-plan-detroit-minions-are-gonna-riot

Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) - how to create a Linux hacking toolkit that runs on Windows 10

Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) - how to create a Linux hacking toolkit that runs on Windows 10 | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Forget running Kali in a virtual machine (well, at least put it aside for a while). The Windows 10 Anniversary Update includes a whack new feature – Windows Subsystem for Linux or WSL. Using the new LxssManager service, WSL lets you run a full-featured Ubuntu Linux subsystem on Windows 10. http://geekslop.com/2016/windows-subsystem-for-linux-wsl-howto-install-hacking-toolkit-windows-10

Gunshots wounds and stopping power - myth vs. fact regarding bullet impacts will surprise you

Gunshots wounds and stopping power - myth vs. fact regarding bullet impacts will surprise you | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Forget what you see on TV. The reality of gunshot wounds and terminal (death inducing) gunshot injuries is remarkably different from what is shown in the movies where the gunman appears to have an unlimited supply of bullets, gunshots knock the enemy off their feet, and gunshot victims make long, drawn out confessions as they take slowly bleed out. The reality is: stopping a person cold in their tracks with a gunshot is difficult to do and depends on shot placement, the type of ammunition, and a little bit of blind luck. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/weapons/gunshots-wounds-stopping-power-myth-vs-fact

How to create a EMP generating device and how to protect yourself from a EMP attack

How to create a EMP generating device and how to protect yourself from a EMP attack | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
An EMP, or electromagnetic pulse, is a fascinating phenomenon. Caused by a rapid acceleration of charged particles travelling at the speed of light, an EMP can easily disable electronics including household electrical equipment, automobiles, and even electric utility power grids. An EMP’s ability to quietly and invisibly disable electronic components makes them an excellent weapon for electronic warfare tactics. http://wildernessarena.com/urban-survival-2/urban-hostile-areas/how-to-create-emp-generator-protect-from-emp-attack

How the British lost their guns - a historical lesson every freedom-loving American should be familiar with | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Most Americans are not aware that the British restrictions on firearms did not happen overnight. Their restrictive gun controls were implemented over the course of several decades and for various reasons. Even odder, almost unanimously, the right to own firearms was freely relinquished by the British citizens with very little resistance. The same could happen in America – without us even recognizing it. http://wildernessarena.com/uncategorized/british-lost-guns-historical-lesson-every-freedom-loving-american-familiar

How to make a homemade blowgun and darts

How to make a homemade blowgun and darts | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Many cultures have utilized the blowgun as a tool to capture or stun wildlife or as a weapon to defend their tribes. Blowgun projectiles for these weapons vary from seeds, clay pellets, piano wire, bamboo skewers, wire coat hangers, knitting needles, to darts dipped in poisonous substances. Projectile sizes range from .40 cal to .625 cal in diameter while blowgun lengths typically fall between 3 ½ – 4 ½ feet in length. Making a homemade blowgun, or an on-the-go blowgun while in the wild, is a fairly simple project and provides an excellent weapon for hunting small game. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/weapons/how-to-make-homemade-blowgun-darts

Make your own compact, portable survival/bugout bag - as small as a fanny pack! | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
When creating bugout bags, a collection of supplies required to survive an unexpected event, most survivalists use a backpack to hold the survival supplies. Their large size however, can be a constraint. That doesn’t have to be the case however. With a bit of compromise, you can create a bugout bag the size of a fanny pack that can be stored in your vehicle, work desk, or carried along with a backpack on a casual outing. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/survival-kits/make-your-own-compact-portable-survival-bugout-bag

A study of assassination- purported CIA guidebook to assassinations provides self-defense lessons for survivalists | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The 19-page document below is a transcript of a file title “A Study of Assassination”. It is believed to have been published by the CIA in 1953 and as the title suggests, acts as a rudimentary guide to assassinations. For survivalists, it serves as a useful countermeasure and tactical guide for self-defense against an attack. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/combat-and-self-defense/a-study-of-assassination-cia-guidebook-to-assassinations-self-defense

Americans are intelligent but history shows they could still elect a fascist, Hitler-like leader | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
To determine if America could indeed reshape the world by “accidentally” electing a fascist leader, we have to look no further than Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany was inconceivable, unbelievable, and sadly, irreversible. Although everyone is familiar with Hitler’s Nazi regime, many fail to recognize the subtle series of steps that allowed it to be. http://geekslop.com/2016/united-states-could-elect-fascist-hitler-like-leader

Arrest records show Alton Sterling was not the "gentle giant" as portrayed by the media | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The arrest records of Alton Sterling (aka Alton Bertell Sterlings) have been released and they don’t do much to help his case nor support his aunt’s claim that he was a “gentle giant”. Sterling was the 37-year-old black man who died at the hands of Baton Rouge police during an arrest for “brandishing a weapon”. It appears as if Alton was well known to Baton Rouge police. http://geekslop.com/2016/alton-sterling-arrest-records

CIA documents reveal systematic torture - have we forgotten the cost of freedom? | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
New documents were released this week which detail the brutal interrogation techniques sanctioned by the CIA after the 9/11 attacks. The published CIA guidelines reveal that the acceptable level of prisoner discomfort is measured by the amount of permanent physical damage it inflicts on the detainee and not whether or not it violates our humanity or embarrasses our country. Is this the cost of freedom? http://geekslop.com/2016/cia-documents-reveal-torture-enhanced-interrogation-techniques

In a survival situation, tools and weapons made from stone, bone, or wood will suffice but those same tools and weapons constructed from metal may prove exceptionally useful. However, metal construction requires use of a forge or foundry, a special furnace used to generate extreme heat – enough to melt (a foundry) or soften (a forge) metal. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/tools/how-to-make-simple-foundry-forge-mold-molten-metal

How to make gunpowder in the wild (all it takes is charcoal, sulfur, and potassium nitrate) | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
In a survival situation, primitive tools will get you by but for maximum survivability, you need mechanical weapons and explosives – and nothing beats the time-tested combustive mixture – gunpowder. Gunpowder is the earliest known chemical explosive. It burns fast (flash fast) and if placed inside a sealed container or shell, will create a quick burst of explosive energy. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/weapons/how-to-make-gunpowder-charcoal-sulfur-potassium-nitrate
