Reddit's r/technology downgraded after bizarre censorship practices discovered

Reddit's r/technology downgraded after bizarre censorship practices discovered | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The popular geek subreddit r/technology has been caught censoring posts in what forum moderators are calling “a disaster” for the board. Reddit today removed the “default subreddit” status from r/technology meaning it has lost its “preferred” standing, a status only afforded to two dozen Reddit communities. The move was made after Reddit admins found r/technology was secretly deleting posts if they contained certain words. What types of words? Here’s the known list – and it’s suspected that there are many, many more. http://geekslop.com/2014/reddits-rtechnology-downgraded-bizarre-censorship-practices-discovered

Here's a list of companies that have cut ties with the NRA - in case you want to, you know, boycott them or something | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Yeah, they may get a little bit whacky sometimes, but the NRA is without a doubt the greatest supporter, and influencer, of Americans’ rights to own guns. With fear running rampant, many companies are using the mass-shooting epidemic as a marketing ploy and are turning against the NRA. Here is a running list of the companies that have turned against the NRA – in case you want to, you know, boycott them or something. http://wildernessarena.com/survival-news/list-of-companies-that-have-cut-ties-with-nra-national-rifle-association

Medicinal use of plants in the wild - sedatives, antihistamines, antiseptics, anti-fungal washes and more | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Many plants have the ability to synthesize chemical compounds that help them defend against attack from a wide variety of predators such as insects, fungi and herbivorous mammals. Some of these compounds, whilst being toxic to plant predators, turn out to have beneficial effects when used to treat human diseases.  There are literally hundreds of plants in the wild with beneficial medicinal properties. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/food-food-water-shelter/food-procurement/other-uses-for-plants/medicinal-use-of-plants

Pine trees - pine provides a bounty of uses in survival situations | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Pine trees are easily recognized by their needle-like leaves grouped in bundles. Each bundle may contain one to five needles, the number varying among species. They are a resinous tree growing up to 250 feet tall. The tree’s odor and sticky sap provide a simple way to distinguish pines from similar looking trees with needle-like leaves. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/food-food-water-shelter/food-procurement/edible-wild-plants/pine

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/survival-news/british-lost-guns-historical-lesson-every-freedom-loving-american-familiar

The most basic of water filters is the clean earth filter. Although not ideal producing crystal clear clean water, it does have the added advantage of filtering out some components that other filters are unable to remove.
