POTRBlog has been publishing information regarding possible Ebola transmission via an airborne route. I was asked to supply some supporting information when I sent a Tweet about that. In response, I dug up some of POTR’s source info and did some digging of my own.
Here are some noteworthy articles for your reading.
University of Minnesota – Health Workers Needs Optimal Respiratory Protection for Ebola
This article discusses how the means for determining the tranmissibility of filoviruses may be based

I just finished reading a blog post by POTRBlog regarding a Pandemic Alert. According to POTRBlog, Tuesday, July 8 2014,
The Defense Logistics Agency has placed a no-bid order for Influenza Vaccine based on “Unusual and Compelling Urgency“. The order states that 70% of the vaccine order must be met by August and the remainder in September. Much of the information about the order is “redacted” aka SECRET.
The no-bid order can be used where a supply of any product

I am a proponent of Celox. If I could be a reseller, I would unashamedly take it up. I am convinced through reports, studies, anecdotes and training that it does what it says it will, and does it better than any similar blood stop product.
While looking for something to share with you all, I came across a series of videos. They are presented by TACDEVGRU on YouTube. HERE is a link to that channel. Tactical Development Group or, WayOfTheGun.com,

Came across a series of vids showing the usage of Celox. No time to get them up tonight. Had to save them to my drive, and then find a utility designed to assist in storage the way I like.
By the weekend. It’ll be worth the wait. Most, if not all, questions you might have about Celox and how to correctly use it will be answered.
Focusing on the issues of today is even more important. Your future’s foundation is anchored largely in the now.
I came across an article that opened my eyes to a medical issue I’d never heard about, and wanted to post it here. I received permission to do so, and you’ll find it in its entirety below. It is a very well written account by a mother about her son’s unpredictable systemic inflammation allergic reactions.
Putting in up here was not

Nothing big to read for today, just an exhortation to keep reality in the forefront of your mind when reading about H7N9 infections – and to READ about H7N9 infections. As far as this blogger is concerned, the epicenter for information on current news and personal mitigation efforts is over at POTR Blog, http://pissinontheroses.blogspot.com/
I’ve been following various news sources, and certain Twitter feeds. Most have something to offer, but nothing quite so focused or intuitive. For me, it is

Naso-pharangeal airways are a component in just about every military IFAK. Damaged airways are not uncommon when bullets and heavy debris fly. For the prepper equipped with IFAKs, these devices are already in his kit. A lot of prep-medics will recommended adding this where it is absent.
There is an alternative to these, however, which ignores the nasal passages entirely. If a large oral airway structurally remains, the Berman Oral Airway is an EXCELLENT alternative. It can not be collapsed,

Booze and smokes make it onto some preppers’ lists as barter items, or just for plain old happy relaxing time when the day’s business of capping zombies and fighting world corruption is complete. Others add tea and coffee for similar reasons. Well, here is a “study” that claims an intake of 200 – 300 mg of caffeine enhances memory. That could be really handy if you lose your printouts of essential items, or your instruction for building a bunker or

From POTR BLog, pissinontheroses.blogspot.com
I don’t generally post whole articles from other blogs, but this one from POTR Blog begs for exposure. I thought it was a fairly good write up on the presence of a killer flu, a government’s medical response (late in coming) and how cost controls in single-payer systems lead to personal tragedy without resource to recompense.
What will China, Canada and the US soon have in common? More than you might expect…

For previous parts of this series, see:
EMP Methods and Preps – Part I
EMP Methods and Preps – Part II
In the first two parts of this series, I laid out why I believe the threat of an EMP attack on the United States is both possible, and feasible. The returns to the attacker far outweigh his investment in time, technology and the sacrifices among his personnel. I described how certain advances in technology and materials allow attackers to
