  • The sell-by dates you shouldn't swallow because they're a myth (tr)

    Hurrah for the Co-Op! I’m no fan of supermarkets, but I’m delighted by its decision to introduce a ‘10p aisle’ to sell food that is past its ‘Best Before’ date in a determined effort to reduce waste. The Co-Op isn’t known as an innovator, so it has stolen a march on Tesco and Sainsbury’s with an initiative that means a selection of products — tinned goods, dried foods etc — will stay on sale for one month after their ‘Best Before’. I believe this is perfectly timed to take advantage of the public’s desire for a return to common sense...

    From Hurricane Irma to the Northern California wildfires, this year has seen its fair share of natural disasters. These disasters may have you thinking about what you should do in the eventuality one hits your city - how do you prepare and should you think about leaving? According to an expert, a lot of what drives large-scale evacuations is mass hysteria and fear, and most natural disasters don't require an immediate evacuation because they can be predicted, for example hurricanes. However, there are certain things city dwellers can do in preparation for a sudden disaster. John Renne, the Director of...

    The Organic Prepper ^ | November 3, 2017 | Daisy Luther
    Tomorrow is November 4th, the date that has been bandied about by wannabe Communists and people who hate the President since last summer as the starting date of their uprising. Cities across the country have planned events (find the list of locations here) and I’ve gotten photos from people in small towns all over the place of signs with the ominous warning, “November 4th It Begins.” Now, before we delve into prepping for this, please know that there is every chance this is a tempest in a teapot. It’s most likely that anywhere from 20 to 200 people will...

    The Economic Collapse ^ | October 31, 2017 | Michael Snyder
    Are we about to see chaos in the streets in major cities all over America? Antifa and other radical leftist groups are promising that a series of protests will begin on November 4th that will never end until “the Trump/Pence regime” is “removed from power”. And as you will see below, Antifa has openly and publicly embraced violence and the Department of Homeland Security says that they have engaged in domestic terrorism. Hopefully these “protests” will fizzle out after a few weeks, because political organizations that believe in “the necessary use of violence” have no place in our society....

    There is a parallel between the core basics of survival and those things that nature takes from us in one of these powerful hurricanes. When I think of survival and the very basics, there is shelter, water, food and fire. As the powerful winds and punishing rains of Hurricane Harvey approached Texas people were most concerned with these survival basics. It was immediately apparent that there were many people unprepared to deal with the aftermath of this storm. Most resources were gobbled up in storm prep and no one really knew when trucks would return to Houston to restock shelves....

    Is George Soros Funding Riots Planned on November 4th?  Is George Soros funding riots planned on November 4 in America? That’s the claim by several web sites on the alt-right end of the political spectrum. We’ll analyze what we know, and how strong—if any—financial and logistical ties can be traced back to Soros-connected groups.The claim first surfaced in an October 20, 2017 piece penned by the Conservative Review. In it, they attempt to link  Soros as a main financial backer for a consortium of groups led by Refuse Fascism. The article describes Refuse Fascism as a a “big-tent movement from...

    The takedown of the Puerto Rican power grid by Hurricane Irma will, we hope, provide a teaching moment. The United States power grid is vulnerable, and the consequences of a widespread failure, especially if lengthy, will be a disaster of monumental proportions. This should not be a new realization. Serious analysts such as the Foundation for Resilient Societies and the EMP Commission have been warning us for a long time. The warnings have been ignored or even actively opposed by the electric power industry. America's electric grid can be brought down by sabotage or by natural forces, such as the...

    Since Donald Trump won the presidency last year, the streets of have teemed with leftist activists united in their collective outrage. Various protesters have wreaked havoc across the nation. Now, Refuse Fascism’s Andy Zee hopes to amass an army for what may be the final battle in their war against the United States. Millions of people will gather nationwide in a coordinated protest to remove Trump and Pence from the White House beginning November 4 – nearly a year to the day after the election – and they insist they will not relent until the mission is achieved.

    El Coquí, the one-inch musical tree frog that is Puerto Rico’s cultural icon, has more common sense than the island’s public officials. When rising temperatures made the coast inhabitable and caused the extinction of many of their species, the survivors moved up to the mountains, where it was cooler. Meanwhile, nearly 70 percent of the island’s human population and all of its power plants are still on Puerto Rico’s coast. This raises two questions. Why didn’t island officials, like Gov. Ricardo Rosselló and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, prepare for a disaster they knew was coming? And how...

    US survivalists stock up as disasters roil planet; nuclear war threat looms By Reuters - September 23, 2017 @ 10:01am NEW YORK: Two earthquakes, three monstrous hurricanes and the North Korean missile crisis have US survivalists convinced that the end of the world is nigh. And they are clearing store shelves to stock bunkers in anticipation of Earth's final chapter. Sales of freeze-dried food, gas masks and other survival equipment have spiked in recent weeks as so-called "preppers" get ready to ride out any disaster, whether natural or man-made. Inspiring their actions: images of people helpless against floodwater from Hurricanes...

  • Venezuela's new plan to beat hunger: Breed rabbits

    Reuters ^ | September 14, 2017 | Reuters Staff
    CARACAS - Venezuela’s government this week urged citizens to see rabbits as more than “cute pets” as it defended a plan to breed and eat them even as the opposition says this would do nothing to end chronic food shortages. The “Rabbit Plan” is an effort by the government of President Nicolas Maduro to boost food availability. Authorities have also taught citizens to plant food on roofs and balconies of their homes. Maduro’s adversaries dismiss such ideas as nonsensical, insisting the real problem is a failed model of oil-financed socialism that was unable to survive after crude markets collapsed. The...

    When it comes to natural disasters, probably everyone is thinking of Hurricane Harvey and its destruction in and around Houston. In addition to that devastation, there are also wildfires raging in southern California and Montana (hundreds of people have had to evacuate). Aside from those terrible disasters, most people don't spend much time thinking about chemical spills, blizzards, tornados, riots, or terrorist attacks. Now that I have your attention, are you taking steps to protect yourself and family in the wake of a disaster?

    Just had the largest X-ray Flare in history while the biggest Hurricane in history is in the Atlantic. CME from previous X-5 Flare is going to hit Earth tonight around 5-6 PM EDT. The initial estimate of the arrival of the X-10 Flare is 6-7 AM EDT on 8 September 2017. This could be a repeat of the 1859 Carrington Event. We could be doing Irma without electronics or electricity.

    On a sunny August Friday, people stream past the ornate, Art Deco US Post Office building in Manhattan's East Village, where its forlorn and faded "Fallout Shelter" plaque is an ominous reminder, however distant, of today's nuclear threat. The yellow and white metal sign on the Cooper Station Post Office is one of perhaps thousands that can be found scattered throughout the city -- largely forgotten relics of the days when the threat of annihilation via a Soviet nuclear attack seemed like a very real and terrifying proposition. But as the war of words between US President Donald Trump and...

    One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn. Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government. Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network,” a little-known left-wing agitation group,...
