Just outside of ground zero, nuclear weapons kill with blast, heat and radiation. The results are destruction, fire or incineration and fatal illness. Go a bit further out, the effects dilute, and one’s primary concern is the blast wave. The blast wave can be understood as the pressure from the explosion moving outward, losing intensity and velocity as it expands. As far as surviving the initial event is concerned, the old Office of Civil Defense /Civil Defense Administration focused on

The “Nuclear Effects Tools” page has a scenario building update to help you with evaluating your own vulnerability.
In my search for information, I came across, and reviewed, some old Civil Defense films from the 50s and 60s. One of them draws quite a bit of negative commentary, and those complaints are based on the “If a bomb hits, you are dead” crowd-think. I must agree on one point – if the bomb hits near enough, you are dead. Make

I was a little bothered by something after posting that huge study recently. The Helfman video source … was it the article I found late in my digging around, or was it something else?
I searched on key phrases from that article and discovered two things in about 5 minutes. The first is that there are only a few word-for-word copies of that article on other sites. The second, was a reference to that article as having been created in

The missiles are launched, the reentry vehicles do their job, and mushroom clouds rise over metropolitan America. Could you survive? How? Would it even be worth it?
Recently, I watched a video wherein an individual made certain claims. He was describing the effects a nuclear detonation would have at various distances from ground zero. As I watched, I heard a few points made that didn’t sound right. Now, the effects of a nuclear explosion vary quite a bit from device

I recently received a challenge to present information specific to the effects of nuclear detonations. To the point, it was a challenge to present data sufficient to confirm or deny my own assertions, regarding the accuracy of specific claims made by another.
The source material for the data presented to, well, basically the entire Twitterverse, was a video posted on YouTube by an M.D, who has very strong feelings about the results of a nuclear exchange. While I keep certain

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.
Anyone that is not aware of the use of Police “Dynamic Entry” tactics during so-called no-knock raids needs to be aware of them.
Because the bad guys use those same tactics when conducting HOME INVASIONS. That’s right. The bad guys dress up as “good guys” and smash down doors yelling “Police!” The idea is that YOU won’t shoot a cop, and thusly will allow said bad guys the few SECONDS they need to secure your home for themselves. Playing

The most secure of personal wireless security password protocols has been hacked. WPA-2, the best choice for general home wireless network security, seems to have been cut to pieces. In this article by phys.org, we read:
Now, a new study published in the International Journal of Information and Computer Security, reveals that one of the previously strongest wireless security systems, Wi-Fi protected access 2 (WPA2) can also be easily broken into on wireless local area networks (WLANs). The researchers have
