Billie Piper (Rose from Doctor Who) pictorial

Bille Piper is a British singer and actor. We know her as Rose Tyler, the companion of The Doctor in Doctor Who, but she first gained notoriety at the age of fifteen when she released her debut music single “Because We Want To” which shot to the number one position on the UK charts. In 2007, Broadcast magazine listed Billie Piper at no. 6 in its “Hot 100″ list of influential on-screen performers. http://geekslop.com/2014/billie-piper-rose-dr-who-sexy-pictorial

CIA documents reveal systematic torture - have we forgotten the cost of freedom?

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

Guns, violence, and mass shootings in the United States - the real reason behind America's shooting epidemic

Guns, violence, and mass shootings in the United States - the real reason behind America's shooting epidemic | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
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 build a simple foundry (forge) and mold metal objects

How to build a simple foundry (forge) and mold metal objects | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
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

A Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear attack, also known as a CBRN or NBC attack, is an attack against an area using hazardous material to promote widespread damage, typically utilized in a terrorist-type attack. The US Army’s domestic preparedness division lists the following cities/states as the top 120 cities at risk for a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear attack.

How to defend against a car bomb - all about car bombs and how to protect yourself from their deadly blasts | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
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. Here’s how to protect yourself from their deadly blasts. http://wildernessarena.com/urban-survival-2/urban-hostile-areas/how-to-defend-against-car-bomb-all-about-car-bombs-how-to-protect-yourself-deadly-blasts

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
