The young man below explains one of the many ways to start a fire. Something to keep in mind as we head into winter.

“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed by the masses.”
Below follows an aggregation of some of the best articles penned by authors from a wide range of websites during the last week or so.
To start off, perhaps those concerned by the Ebola Issue might wish to take note to the link below in respect to information regarding the reliability of the polymerase chain reaction [PCR] test, which is the most frequently used test to diagnose Ebola. Dr. Sircus does an apt job of showing the evidence for the [un]reliability of the test.
In conjunction with that, some noteworthy points that dovetail with Ebola are brought about in the following missive penned by Jon Rappoport, that does a trenchant job of exposing many of the fallacies being expounded by the mainstream media:
Speaking of the mainstream media, when was the last time anyone heard a detailed report warning of the bevy of dangers that vaccines contained? Nor for quite some time eh? Never mind the fact that mainstream media is heavily funded by Big Pharma.
Well thankfully, Christina Sarich wrote a piece that names some of the many pernicious effects that people need to learn about regarding vaccines:
Another subject that rarely ever gets coverage by media is the ongoing issue with mental health screening tests. Covering this topic broadly, Dr. Mercola not only dabs into the issue of gut health in relation to mental health, but also covers Depression, Vitamin D levels, and more:
Gravitating towards another health issue, we find Madeleine M Castellanos, MD, showing what can be done in order to decrease breast cancer risk via a proactive approach:
For the preppers out there, if you wish to find out how to cook less fuel, take a gander at the following work by Mr. Jorgustin:
In the ever improving depressing economic arena, we find out from the editor at MyBudget360.com
how one third of the country is supporting two thirds of population:
Notwithstanding the Federal Reserve’s marvelous job in finance, we find more evidence why this private institution is more detrimental to [y]our savings then a flame thrower is to a snowman. Shared via ZeroHedge follows a piece by Chris Masterson via Peak Prosperity:
In the spirit of saving the best for last, this link below is my favorite. Reason for this is because it details evidence of how our health truly functions, which is the antithesis of the belief that you and your health are a chained to your genetics.
Mrs. Sarich from NaturalSociety.com tackles rather well the fascinating [don’t cringe!] subject of epigenetics. Fascinating, because it opens up a whole new world of possibilities that are rarely covered by mainstream science.
If you are a product of your environment, then every choice your make has an effect on your health. What choices will you make this upcoming weekend and thereon?

According to an Army field manual “In these modern times, demonstrations, civil unrest, public disorder, and riots happen for a number of reasons. Some of these reasons are economic hardships, social injustices, ethnic differences (leading to oppression), objections to world organizations or certain governments, political grievances, and terrorist acts. An event can be triggered by a single cause or a combination of causes.”
The manual (FM 3-19.15) further states that “gatherings in protest are recognized rights of any person or group, regardless of where US forces may be operating. This fundamental right is protected under the Constitution of the US.”
These are interesting if not downright frightening times. To all but the most ignorant, government and elected officials have sold out to corporations with deep pockets and hidden agendas. The tenets of freedom from tyranny are being challenged on a daily basis. In addition, not a day goes by that a new financial or consumer scam comes in to the public eye, further eroding our trust in a system that was at one time steeped in honor and trust.
In addition to the challenge of a corrupt system of governance, we have massive unemployment and underemployment in all age groups. Cities, counties and even countries are bankrupt or close to it. Health care costs are out of control as are prescription drug costs. The food supply is being manipulated for the profit of greedy corporations.
The Perfect Storm is Brewing

This week has provided two very clear examples of why it is so important to keep on prepping. In the United States, the historic drought ravaging the central part of the country is absolutely devastating our crops.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, drought is affecting nearly 90 percent of all corn crops in America at this point.
This is pushing the price of corn to levels never seen before. On Tuesday, the price of corn hit another new record high of $8.20 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade. Over the past six weeks the price of corn has risen more than 50 percent, and it could go a lot higher as the drought continues to absolutely bake America.
Meanwhile, the massive power grid failures in India are reminding us all just how incredibly dependent we are on electricity and technology. Power was cut off to nearly a tenth of the entire global population on Tuesday, and there was quite a bit of panic about that even though power is rapidly being restored.
So what would happen to them (or to us) someday if the power went off for good?
Without the rain that falls from the sky, there would be mass starvation on this planet. We are not immune to drought, and there are a lot of indications that the drought we are experiencing right now is just the beginning of a longer trend.

Two things hold back the mass adoption of solar energy as a source of sustainable energy. One is the need to store and transmit excess power, a problem people like Danielle Fong are working on solving by developing innovative new ways to store power. The other is the high cost of solar panels. One of the reasons solar panels are so expensive is that it’s tricky to extract electric currents from semiconductors, the materials used to convert solar radiation into electrical energy.
Up til now, this could only be done with a few materials — usually silicon. But a new breakthrough will enable manufacturers to make efficient photovoltaics using almost any semiconductor, including cheap and abundant materials like metal oxides, sulfides, and phosphides.
A typical photovoltaic cell is built with silicon and treated with chemicals. This treatment is called “doping,” and it creates the driving force needed to extract power from the cell. Photovoltaics can also be built with cheaper materials but many of these can’t be doped chemically. But a method developed by Professor Alex Zettl’s research group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and University of California at Berkeley makes it possible to dope nearly any semiconductor by applying an electric field instead of chemicals. The method is described in a paper published in the journal Nano Letters.

A dilemma of such monumental proportions such as 670 Million People in India loosing power is something that strikes close to home.
Growing up in Puerto Rico, there were many power outages due to a large amount of tropical storms and hurricanes. Sometimes we could go weeks without power if not longer. Prepping 101 doesn’t get much more realistic than that.
Power outages are one of the many reasons why people should have a buffer of food & water of at minimum three months in order to be able to tackle such problems outright, and not risk being in a highly unstable and dangerous situation.
Hopefully this issue does not last long and the country can recover relatively quickly. Either way, it serves as a great warning to those that carry a nonchalant ‘nothing could ever happen here’ type of an attitude.
