Make your own compact, portable survival/bugout bag - as small as a fanny pack!

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

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

Scary - To get gun license, Massachusetts city requires written essay, graded solely by police chief | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Firearm restrictions are tightening like a noose in Lowell, Massachusetts with the heavy arm of the law pulling tightly on the rope. Gun rights advocated are livid over a new city law which requires residents applying for a gun license to write “an essay” explaining why they believe they should be granted the right to carry their firearm. http://wildernessarena.com/survival-news/to-get-gun-license-lowell-massachusetts-city-requires-written-essay

It’s a draft title Task Order Request for Cyberspace Operations Support Services in support of United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM). Oh, brother. That means the U.S. has bungled their cybersecurity so badly they’re now willing to outsource, and trust, this critical national security task to an outside contractor. Even a partner outside of the U.S. if they’re trusted status. http://geekslop.com/2015/united-states-is-outsourcing-cyberspace-cyber-command-operations

Naturally, when a mass shooting occurs and the media bombards the public with anti-gun rhetoric, we become concerned and inherently wonder, “Would the country be safer if gun ownership was restricted – or more tightly controlled?” Contrary to what we are often told, guns have no bearing on the level of violence in a society. http://wildernessarena.com/survival-news/guns-violence-in-america-truth-government-officials-do-not-want-you-to-know

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

Car bombs are a commonly used weapon for assassinations, terrorism, or guerrilla warfare. They are easy to hide, cheap to construct, and leave behind little forensic evidence. In addition, the gasoline in the automobile’s fuel tanks magnify the force of the explosion.

Gotta give props to Microsoft – they did well with Windows 10 both in terms of the design and implementation of the OS and especially the unique rollout via Windows update.

Because Windows 10, in its initial iteration, is pretty rough around the edges. http://geekslop.com/2015/windows-10-rough-around-edges-but-future-for-microsoft-windows-looks-bright
