While there are many good articles out there on preparing for pandemics, there is little information that really breaks down infectious diseases and how to alter your actions depending on the disease. There are also conflicting reports on exactly what actions to take and if/when to take antibiotics and in what dosages. I hope this article will provide you with the tools you will need to decide what actions to take. This article will cover some basic infectious disease terms and patterns and then two resources you can use to decide what actions to take and when.

Infectious Diseases

When talking pandemics, you’re really talking about the spread of infectious diseases, as opposed to the other types of diseases, such as deficiency, genetic, and physiological. Infectious diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. While many of these organisms live in and on our bodies at all times, rarely … Continue reading →

In this article, we’ll take a close look at the Kimber Ultra Carry II SP 1911. This is one of the smallest 1911 based handguns chambered in .45 ACP on the market.

Limited, Discontinued Splash 1911

I’m sad to say, it appears that Kimber has discontinued this particular base model 1911 and gone to some upper crust, more costly, smaller 1911s. It’s too bad! The gun under review here is the Ultra Carry II SP, and the SP stands for “Splash”. It was a limited product run available for sale at a SHOT Show a few years ago. I believe these guns were done up in five different “Splash” colored frames. They were, if the information I received was correct, limited to only 300 guns in each color. The sample I have has a “Splash” of red on the anodized aluminum frame.

An 1911 in .45 … Continue reading →

And it bears mention that most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of JWR. (SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor.) Today’s focus is on the coming Dollar Decline.

Precious Metals (Dollar Decline):

First up–and most importantly–there is this at Zero Hedge: Russia, China, India Unveil New Gold Trading Network. JWR’s Comment: This news is another nail in the coffin for the Petrodollar. In the long term, the U.S. Dollar is losing preeminence as a global commodities exchange currency and reserve currency. Once the Dollar reaches a psychological breaking point, it will be substantially revalued downward. I’ve warned you before, folks: It it time to hedge out of U.S. Dollars and your U.S. Dollar-denominated investments. Tangibles–including silver–will … Continue reading →

North Korea

Reader P.S. sent in this article with North Korea showing that it is continuing in their quest for an ICBM that can reach any part of North America. In their latest test, the missile reached the highest altitude of any NK missle test yet and splashed down in the Sea of Japan. The test shows that they now have a vehicle capable of striking the U.S. but they do not yet have the miniaturized nuke to place on the missile. However, it is only a matter of time. In conventional thinking, this ability is a ploy … Continue reading →
