In the Aftermath of Nuclear Disaster

Sometimes there comes a point when you have to stop researching and start implementing what you’ve learned. Time to digest the changes, absorb the situation, and re-evaluate your priorities.

After several successive days and nights of spending most of my time trying to give this website project a jumpstart, the destructive trifecta of earthquake(s), tsunami, and nuclear radiation leakage knocked me into a reality check of my own family’s ability to protect and sustain itself should those circumstances either be duplicated or contaminate our little homestead.

The next day, a younger 3rd cousin of mine lost his wife after she gave birth to their son. A tragedy of epic proportions that although I cannot comprehend the depth, am immediately awakened to the need to address the here and now.

So, I spent the majority of the weekend offline. There comes a point where the many bigger issues must be taken apart to reveal that which is most important at its core, that which is most urgent, most effective, further reaching in its quest for longevity.

As a parent, this most often begins with my children. Have I spent any quality time with them lately? Have I – at least once today – let go of my own reality in order to visit their immature realms? A child’s priorities will never be an adult’s, but I find this mutually therapeutic when taken in small, frequent doses.

As a spouse, I wonder…how do I know when I’m working enough or working too much? Without an income or time clock attached to the deed, it is more difficult to measure. Then came the reflection, “Have I shown my appreciation?” Again, it is easier to assume that we have, than that we haven’t. I figured either way it went, it’d be a poor assumption.

There were also other things to consider:

How will possible nuclear fallout affect my food supply?
Would I be better off to start my peas indoors? v.s. the original plan to sow them directly in the ground right away? I just had gotten landscaping garden rows ready along the base of my fence.

Need to start collecting drink containers to sterilize with boiling water & keep filled for at least 2 weeks worth of drinking water.

Need to quit putting off my mini-root cellar idea. This will allow me to store plenty of cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes, squash. Would be wise to consider constructing an indoor entrance to this. We don’t have a basement already, but we could easily modify a small section of flooring for indoor access to decrease chances of radiation exposure.

Stock up on iodine/potassium iodide. In essence, an adult needs 130mcg a day to saturate the thyroid. This protects the thyroid only, but is essential to blocking radioactive iodides. There could be other radioactive particles involved as well.

Clay – particularly bentonite – can be used as a mud bath, skin wrap, food/drink additive – to help draw out radiation.

Baking soda – Besides being the safest, most effective teeth cleaning substance, it also works to neutralize radioactive isotopes. Recommended to having 50 lbs on hand for emergency situations. Reportedly, you can get that much for ~$35. I thought I was doing good with the 3-4 small boxes we have put back.

Seaweed – any way you can get it, and get it pretty often because it contains high amounts of potassium iodide in the purest form available: food. Can be found dried/powdered in capsule form or as a direct food additive, salty/crunchy dehydrated snacks, fresh in salads, pickled…

Probably a good idea to store the water currently caught in my rain barrels in our covered portable cistern, & not use any rain caught this month without 1st treating it with baking soda. This is not drinking water I am talking about, either, but used for our garden instead.

Stock up on vitamin C, but make an effort to grow small citrus trees indoors beginning with orange and lemon.  Reportedly my great-grandfather kept miniatures growing and producing fruit in his basement even though he lived well out of range from their tropical native climate. 

Need to give special attention to my already growing antioxidant mustard greens, rosemary, and aloe vera. All of these are very easy to grow in small spaces and offer heavy metal detox for the circulatory system.

Time to include oregano in my herb garden. Praised for antimicrobial action, essential oil of oregano extracted from the plant is a strong daily defender of the immune system.

So back to my cycle of priorities…as always, they come back ’round to my family. So for now, I’m gonna log off, be eclectic and work on starting my pea sprouts indoors to help save our food supply while teaching my kids self-sufficiency and showing my mate that I’m thankful by bringing a bit o’ my own to the table…even if money doesn’t exchange hands.

Japanese Nuclear Reactor Emergency Status – Area Evacuated – Bigger than Chernobyl Disaster

There have been massive amounts of radiation detected OUTside of the destabilized nuclear reactor, reports up to 1000 times higher than safe levels following the largest earthquake in Japanese 140 years of recorded history. All citizens in the area are urged to evacuate. Links with full details to follow.

This is the prime occasion to discuss the simple fact that nuclear energy and natural gas or oil are never safe, viable, life enhancing options. It really is that simple. No man-made structure will ever fully withstand natural disasters or climatic conditions over time (if ever at all), and they also increase the likelihood and number of casualties in the meantime.

No amount of convenience is worth the loss of life. After all, it’s the improvement in the quality of life that is the primary argument for such advances. However, over the last decade, it has become abundantly clear that it is not quality of life, but quantity of profit that drives these toxic invasions into our towns, homes, air, soil, and water.

Clean air (thus allowing in proper sunshine, temperature, & gases), soil, and water…the 3 necessities for life. These 3 things not only provide the ability to feed ourselves, but each on its own is a carrier of either nurturance or poison that will enter our bodies in a number of ways.

Do not support, do not believe media reports or classroom textbooks that try to charm you into thinking everything’s ok because we’ve learned how to manage/harnass/utilize safely that which is a proven poison.

Even if you think natural disasters or mandated gas pipelines lining your suburban ditches and urban sprawls don’t affect your region that much, they do. The nuclear power plant discreetly located on the other side of the state or in a no-man’s land of useless property, the truth is: fires feed off of fuel, they spread, & so does toxic release of wastes – whether by industrial neglect, terrorism, or the changing weather.

8.8 Earthquake reported near Japan – UPDATED Survival Tips Included

8.8 EARTHQUAKE reported 20 min. ago near the east coast of Honshu, Japan! Just 2 days ago, a 7.2 earthquake ripped through the same region. This is the LARGEST earthquake in Japan’s history. Scroll down past tips to the comments for continual updated coverage including link to live streaming from Japan.

Thought this was more than appropriate time to repost some important earthquake survival tips that are a bit different from the generic misinformation that has been handed out for decades. This comes straight to you from Doug Copp, Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the world’s most experienced rescue team.

EXTRACT FROM DOUG COPP’S ARTICLE ON THE: ‘TRIANGLE OF LIFE’

My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI), the world’s most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.

I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries.

I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years. I have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.

The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under its desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene, unnecessary and I wondered why the children were not in the aisles. I didn’t at the time know that the children were told to hide under something.

Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a space or void next to them. This space is what I call the ‘triangle of life’. The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch collapsed buildings, on television, count the ‘triangles’ you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common shape, you will see, in a collapsed building.

TIPS FOR EARTHQUAKE SAFETY
1) Most everyone who simply ‘ducks and covers’ WHEN BUILDINGS COLLAPSE are crushed to death. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.

2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position.You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. You can survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.

3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.

4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on The back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.

6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!

7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different ‘moment of frequency’ (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads – horribly mutilated. Even if the building doesn’t collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged..

8 ) Get Near the Outer Walls Of Buildings Or Outside Of Them If Possible – It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked.

9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.

10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.

Spread the word and save someone’s life… The Entire world is experiencing natural calamities so be prepared!

Be prepared, and take care.

President Obama & First Lady Michelle Obama Video Message about Bullies

The timing of this video release was impeccable for my own family. My two sons who homeschool (with bullying being the initial culprit in my decision to do so) had to deal with this very issue in a prominent youth social group over the past several months.

The problem had climaxed to the point that I stepped in and addressed the officials leading the group, and immediately gained their support to stop the matter in its tracks. I was also impressed with how they counseled the children to:

1) recognize it, 2) confront it, and 3) report it promptly.

I think the kids really appreciated hearing from adults that supporting each other without fear of also approaching an adult was crucial to their well-being.

This message from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reaffirmed to my boys that they could handle any further issues, and that no, Mama’s not just being over-protective. 🙂

Go now to see President Obama talking to kids about bullying, and to gain more support and information for parents and kids including live video conferencing and chat.

If you hurry, you can catch LIVE today at 10:30am EST the 1st ever White House conference on bullying prevention.

Full Audio Recording of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Getting Revealing Prank Call

You may have heard the rumors, but have you heard the entire recorded phone call that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker [R] took where he thought he was speaking to David Koch, mega-billionaire and Republican Party campaign contributor? Thanks to self-made journalist Ian Murphy of theBeast.com, you can now.

This audio has been authenticated from Governor Scott Walker’s office, and defended with, “It doesn’t say anything he hasn’t said in public.” Perhaps…but did he say these things before he was elected? Not a chance.

Furthermore, his own ethical standards are clearly distorted as you’ll note that he threatened to layoff state workers, remarking that he ‘bet that hanging over the Democrats head would get them back in session’. He also sought to trick the Democrats to enter the Capitol Building either to pick up their paychecks being held hostage in the Assembly Office or through “talks – not negotiations – but they all 14 have to be there.”

He even admits the motive was the legal loophole that would allow Republicans to proceed with the vote if the Democrats showed up, then got angry during discussion and left again. He stated that “once they’ve entered a session, should they take a recess, they don’t have to present after that to proceed.” Currently, Wisconsin law states that 20 State Congress Representatives must be present to vote on any issue concerning the budget.

As of yesterday, Walker pushed the vote through anyway without the Democrats being in session. The Democrats do plan to appeal, but while Governor Walker has claimed all along that this was a “budget repair bill,” he is now waivering to claim that it was a vote that didn’t involve “fiscal [budget] responsibility,” therefore the 19 present Republicans were sufficient.

Don’t you love it when a team changes the rules as they go along? Props to Republican Dale Schultz for batting a homerun by opposing his “refusing to budge” Republican Party.

Ahhh, I know. You came here for the audio. Here they are in 2 parts.

Only Republican in Wisconsin to Vote for Unions

He was a lone wolf with the nerve to stand up against peer pressure from other Wisconsin state representatives in the Republican Party and vote against current Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to undercut Wisconsin citizens’ rights for collective bargaining on behalf of public workers’ benefits, aka “the Union-Busting Bill.” [editor’s note: Click to read bill in full; Interestingly enough, a Yahoo search of “Scott Walker budget repair bill” led to this link, yet when clicked, it re-routed you back to Yahoo’s search page. Moving over to Google, with same search attempt, the link was present in full & works just fine.]

While Gov. Scott Walker has destroyed his own reputation via telephone calls where he pointedly drives it home that this is a “them” and “us” political agenda where he was willing to blackmail and trick Dems into relinquishing voting power, and then on media tours where he clearly “flip-flops” his own intentions in the same sentence as he claims on the tv show “Upfront with Mike Gousha” that he was not restricting the right for public workers to unionize with collective bargaining for their own pay, yet he “and other Republicans” believed there should be “a cap” on negotiations. As in a limit. That’s like saying you’re going to auction off something, but as seller you refuse the higher price and insist on the lower bidding buyer. Insane, I know…but he really expected you to believe that.

On the other hand, there is Dale W. Schultz, our lone wolf Republican. While Gov. Scott Walker was busy ruining his own street credit, Dale W. Schultz just gained a few credit points in many people’s eyes, including my own. He is a great example that all Republicans aren’t neo-con gold diggers, just like being Democrat in 2011 doesn’t make you a socialist. He proves during one of the most divisive political eras of our country’s history that yes, we really do all have more in common than differences. We’d like to see more of that here at The Infamous Frik n’ Frak.

The fact that with all eyes were on him during a time of extreme pressurized debate of civil rights and economic stability, and he chose to vote against his fellow Republicans (18-1), knowing full well that the measure would lose thanks to the vote proceeding in the absence of the Democrat representatives that are hiding out in boycott of the matter, made him an “underdawg” in their eyes…and a hero in ours.

It was only after a second glance at his public statements and record regarding other issues that I was fully convinced that he was sincere in his choice. You can look here for yourself.

If you happen to be in any of the other 49 states or territories of the U.S. wondering, “What on Earth does Wisconsin have to do with me?” let me just make this point very clear: What can happen to someone else at some point will happen to you if silent submission, ignorance, or indeference is your chosen path.

We all have that choice to make: to walk toward the Light, or to dangle in Darkness. Republican Dale W. Schultz chose the Light.

To hear the audio of Gov. Scott Walker’s phone call to whom he thought was David Koch, major Republican Party financer, go here.

Environmental Toxins & How to Detox with Natural Diet

You’ve heard how everything happens for a reason?  My husband and I lamented over the loss of decking contracts last fall as we were anticipating that extra income to get us through the Christmas shopping season and winter power bill cost hikes.  Not to mention, it was the first time since our courtship that we were able to work together on the same job as a team.  Not only did I love gaining his respect with the chance for him to see my hard work ethic firsthand after 15 years of working in separate industries, but I truly relished the toiling physical labor and feeling of strength that I gained as I kept up with his construction work pace quite readily. 

This video reveals a case where a lady died after a sudden illness, and since the autopsy revealed toxic levels of arsenic in her body, her husband was arrested for attempted murder.  In an attempt to prove his innocence, a heavy metal screening was performed on him as well…to uncover astonishing levels of arsenic poisoning in his system.  Further investigations discovered that they had been carpenters and specialized in none other than decks made from pressure treated wood.

I remember as we would pick out the materials at the local hardware store being concerned about the slimy green powder that coated the pressure treated pine lumber.  I was almost as aggravated that store employees wouldn’t pick out the wood for you without choosing crooked, inferior pieces.  Although I washed my hands as we left the store, the exposure continued throughout the grueling 16 hour work days as we rushed to get the job completed on time. 

I have learned that the EPA banned arsenic to be used in pressure treated wood after 2002, & while the “alternative coatings are less toxic,” they “still present some risks to consumers,” says ConsumerWatch.com. Yet, they do not explain what those risks or coatings are. Hmm. So, protective gloves were for sissies, I had thought in the past.  Perhaps this is a reason pride is considered a deadly sin.  Ya think? 

Radhia Gleis, M.Ed., C.C.N. is a certified clinical nutritionist who does a wonderful job opening our eyes to the world that bombards us with toxins daily.  She also gives a good summarization of liver function and why a healthy liver is so important. 

Don’t be embarrassed…She admits herself that she turned to natural health and nutrition after years working as an airbrush graphic artist.  “It never occured to me that blowing rainbows out of my nose was a bad thing!” 

However, once her own health declined, she began learning and hasn’t stopped since.  Now, she’s here to empower you with tons of info and the simple suggestion:   If you can change it [the # of toxins in your home], then do so! 

She further encourages us that Dr. Devra Lee Davis, former Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary of Health, advises that if we could reduce – not eliminate, but reduce – environmental carcinogens [cancer causing agents] alone, we could save 50,000+ lives a year from cancer. 

Did you know that in 1901 only 1 in every 8,000 people got cancer?  Since the Industrial Revolution took over, in 2002 the documented rate had risen to 1 out of 2.  That’s correct:  half of the population can expect to get cancer in their lifetime, and if they rely solely on the current medical treatments of chemotherapy and radiation, all are certain to die either during their first bout with cancer or later on as it returns.  There is hope.  Stick with us…follow our site [via free email subscription] and bit by bit we will show you how to literally regain control over your own life.

Below is a list of the top 5 household products that are proven by the National Cancer Prevention Coalition to cause cancer.  Beside them, you will find natural, safe alternatives to each of these home products.  Take note that women who work inside the home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer due to increased exposures to these chemicals used everyday in the home.
