Gugal-Okroy’s friendly flock has grown to 22 since 2011, when she purchased her first dozen baby chicks from a local farm.
But her neighborly courtesy doesn’t mean much to local officials in the City of Virginia Beach. Attorneys at the Rutherford Institute are now hoping they can help to shift momentum in Gugal-Okroy’s favor.
Whether in an act of civil disobedience, to stand in solidarity with Gugal-Okroy, or simply to play a more active role in nurturing a sustainable environment, see the link below for tips and best practices from Health Ranger Mike Adams on raising your own chickens at home.
Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. According to the Paragould Daily Press, Paragould Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall told about 40 residents attending a town hall meeting recently that because of a recent spike in crime, they were essentially militarizing the city.
In justifying this civil rights outrage, Stovall said residents who aren’t doing anything wrong should save their indignation. Stovall told the local paper that normally police in the city don’t just stop people for no reason. He also said the city’s crime stats alone are justification for demanding ID from anyone seen in public.
What’s more, Stovall said that if anyone did not want to produce an ID, his officers would not back down. Crime may be up in Paragould, but the last time we checked, Arkansas was still part of the union and the Constitution had not been repealed. Materials: 2 cardboard boxes (of appropriate sizes), lots of shredded paper, a few scraps of wood, wood glue, aluminum foil (originally used black spray paint), packing tape, cling wrap (should have used clear plastic wrap), and a reflective windshield sunshade or something similar. Find two boxes, one that will fit within the other and that allows for two or three inches of air space between them around all sides. Begin filling the bottom of the outer box with shredded paper to act as insulation (Note: I actually dumped out the insulation later so that I could glue the inner box to the outer box but that’s probably not necessary if I had packed the shredded paper really well). Paint the inside of the inner box with black spray paint to better absorb the sun’s energy.
Glue pieces of scrap wood to the underside of the inner box so that you create air space between the bottoms of the boxes when the inner box is placed inside the outer box. Place the inner box inside the outer box, center, and glue the inner box down where the scrap wood pieces meet the bottom of the outer box.
Instead, I tried adding a reflector, an old windshield sunshade, which easily wrapped around three sides of my oven and actually slid down between the two boxes several inches after cutting the sunshade down a bit to fit. As I wanted something more durable than the cling wrap, I decided to sacrifice a piece of semi-clear plastic from a drawer that I didn’t need.
I thought that maybe I was losing too much heat where the plastic met the top of the inner box so I tried adding some weather-stripping to smooth out any imperfections which seemed to help a bit but didn’t exceed temperatures that I could get with cling wrap alone. All in all, the experiment could have been completed within an hour if I had shredded paper available. Use aluminum foil to line the insides of the inner box and paint the outside of the outer box with black spray paint.
I would recommend using clear plastic wrap instead of cling wrap because cling wrap is not completely clear and probably limits the amount of sunlight that enters the inner box, just as the semi-clear plastic I tried.
Knowledge and skills acquisition is a topic that resonates greatly with the Peak Prosperity community. So here I present the nine great video tutorials on how to start a fire without the use of matches or lighters.
The most energetically intensive method to master, the fire plough is another great way to start fires with limited resources and tools. This is a quick video showing the basic mechanics of using a striker and a magnesium block.  The same principle works for flint and steel, and all other variations of this type of firemaker. A real survival-scenario type method of making fire using a basic water bottle as a lens.  Just make sure you start your fire before drinking your water. Similar to using a water bottle, this method uses a clear balloon or condom to hold water and form a focusing lens.  A little more care is required with this method as the material used is more fragile. In the comments section below, please share any other methods you might have used or found.  And do give the above methods a try – we welcome your feedback, helpful hints, and stories of success! A new video from NASA’s science division highlights the fact that earth is one X-Class solar flare away from a situation that would completely alter life on earth as we know it today. Such events have played out at various times in our history, with the most notable recent examples occurring in 1859 and 1989.
The Great Geomagnetic Storm of 1989 was responsible for taking down Hydro-Quebec’s electricity transmission system and reached as far down as Salem, New Jersey. Solar storms are nothing new and scientists watch them via early warning satellites systems on an hourly basis.
A similar storm today could have a catastrophic effect on modern power grids and telecommunication networks. Multi-ton transformers fried by such a storm could take years to repair and impact national security.
Though our dependence on electricity is often taken for granted, the fact is that a downing of the grid would lead to serious and immediate repercussions across the globe. Had it hit Earth, the July 2012 event likely would have created a technological disaster by short-circuiting satellites, power grids, ground communication equipment and even threatening the health of astronauts and aircraft crews. Former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett noted in the documentary Urban Danger that the problems are within the outdated national power grid.

We could have events in the future where the power grid will go down and it’s not, in any reasonable time, coming back up. There are a number of events that could create a situation in the cities where civil unrest would be a very high probability. How likely is it that we could be hit by a solar flare powerful enough to take down our grid? Researchers from the University of Otago used radio wave-based measurements of the x-rays’ effects on the Earth’s upper atmosphere torevise the flare’s size from a merely huge X28 to a “whopping” X45, say researchers Neil Thomson, Craig Rodger, and Richard Dowden. Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), a senior member of the House Homeland Security Committee recently suggested that the chance of a serious solar event on our planet is a certainty. Though the stars (and earth) would need to align in order for such an event to take place, history shows that it happens quite regularly in the grand scheme of things.
According to Tess Pennington, who provides useful preparedness tips for various emergency disasters scenarios including long-term power outages, the thin veneer of society would become apparent rather quickly. When the needs of the population cannot be met in an allotted time frame, a phenomena occurs and the mindset shifts in people. Either way, we’ll be in for a long and arduous recovery period that could span a decade or more.

If this ever happens, I hope the useless bureucrats at the EPA that are doing their very best to ban woodburning stoves are among those that freeze to death.
I ordered a couple extra airtight barrel stove kits just in case the new EPA rules make them unavailable. Consider protecting all critical electronics with something as simple an inexpensive as a galvanized garbage can that can be modified into a home-made Faraday cage. There is much speculation in the astronomy world that the Sun has actually had mega super flares that lead to some of the past mass extinctions of 75-95% of species on the planet.
These charts that the NOAA puts out with these solar storms shows that certain storms are strong enough to give people in airplanes a substanial amount of radiation and the planes are actually grounded or diverted away from the higher concentration of radiation, usually closest to magnetic south or north. When you have a mass extinction such as this that has a wide reaching effect of kill off, something very serious should have happened to do this. JustOneGuy is the one to ask about this, but I have always wondered about a direct radiation storm hit. I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world. If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special, and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Many people are concerned about where they live from a nuclear power plant, whether they’re up wind or down wind. The government did the exact same thing to the native americans and the majority didn’t care. This site requires JavaScript to function properly.Please enable JavaScript in your web browser. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that.
That said, I’ve always wondered if I could honestly make my own solar oven and, most importantly, how well a makeshift solar oven would actually work. I was successful except that I had to buy a $5 oven thermometer at Walmart because I couldn’t find the oven thermometer I already had. I really should have used non off-gassing paint here but I figured I could heat it up without any food several times before actually using the oven to cook food.
It’s not critical how you do this; just ensure each corner is supported as well as the middle. Depending on what you intend to do it may be beneficial for the inner box to be flush with the outer box; I figured I could always cut it off later.
It never dawned on me that the cling wrap wasn’t wide enough to fit in one piece over the inner box so I ended up using two pieces.
After carefully cutting it to fit the top of the inner box, I tested and found that this idea seemed to work even worse than the cling wrap!
I actually spent over a week to do the experiment simply because I didn’t have enough shredded paper. I would also suggest you use non off-gassing spray paint if you’re going to use your solar oven to cook food.
I considered angling the sunshade outward to get the correct angles like you’re supposed to but I didn’t want to compromise the integrity of an already flimsy sunshade.
In this article we will explore a critical skill to learn and practice that can help you in really tough times or emergency situations – the skill of making fire. It would be a real bummer to get a fire started only to have it doused by a bursting balloon. But even if a large solar discharge was identified, there’s not a whole lot we can do except brace for impact.
Without it transportation would come to a standstill, gas pumps wouldn’t work, cellular phone service would be inoperable, and any job requiring the use of a computer or an electrical outlet would be instantly made irrelevant. So much so that the Center for Security Policy estimates 90% of Americans would be dead within a year. For instance, if when the power grid went down some of our large transformers were destroyed, damaged beyond use, we don’t make any of those in this country.

And, I think that those who can, and those who understand, need to take advantage of the opportunity when these winds of strife are not blowing to move their families out of the city. Most of them are benign and don’t rate high enough on the scale to affect anything except maybe radio communications. X-class flares are major events that can trigger radio blackouts around the world and long-lasting radiation storms in the upper atmosphere that can damage or destroy satellites. As depicted in the recent NatGeo documentary American Blackout, it wouldn’t take more than a few days for the entire system to collapse in on itself as grocery stores ran out of food, water utilities were unable to deliver potable water, and emergency response became non existent.
They begin to act without thinking and respond to changes in their environment in an emotionally-based manner, thus leading to chaos, instability and a breakdown in our social paradigm. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth. The wind changes direction so much that I don’t think there would be a safe place to escape the fallout.
Now its the so called blue collar producing middle class that’s no longer needed or wanted. A later subsequent to the circuit court also ended poorly for Gugal-Okroy, when in an October 2012 ruling, the court upheld the zoning board’s decision, finding that Gugal-Okroy had, in fact, violated the zoning ordinance.
Nonetheless, the case does carry potentially serious implications for individuals who prefer to raise their own wholesome food.
My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn’t hear him. That fear is what gives cops the right to stop residents and, in essence, demand their papers. While there are plenty of solar oven plans available online, I decided to go it alone and see what happens. Compared to the Global Sun Oven at 14? long x 14? wide x 7.5? usable depth my design is slight longer but not quite as wide.
In addition, I would also assume you could paint the outside of the outer box to increase efficiency too. Unfortunately, the wind blew the cling wrap off and the oven thermometer inside didn’t even register a temperature. If I had bothered to angle the solar oven toward the sun (as I would have with the Global Sun Oven) I might be able to get the temps above boiling.
If I could start over I would not have painted the inside of the inner box with black spray paint and just used foil instead.
To make the oven more durable I would think that a sheet of plexiglass or window glass would work. I’m not sure what kind of increases in temperature I would have gotten from doing so but I would suspect it is a good idea if able.
All in all, I would say it is definitely possible to make your own solar oven for next to nothing. What’s scary about the following image is that it was taken at the Salem Nuclear Powerplant and shows just how susceptible even our most protected facilities are to solar storms. Should those go down simultaneously there simply aren’t enough backup transformers available to repair those damaged by the storm and since we source this equipment from foreign countries like China it could be anywhere from 18 months to four years before the grid would start being restored. They’re made overseas and you order one and 18 months to two years later they will deliver it. The biggest previous solar flares on record were rated X20, on 2 April 2001 and 16 August 1989. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, “This is the Receiving Section. The chickens are quiet and well-protected from predators, keeping either to their coop or fenced-in quarters. By that time, Gugal-Okroy had also received a summons charging her with violating the city’s ordinance, which included a possible fine of up to $1,000. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. I would imagine you could use other insulation, such as crumpled up newspaper to less effect.
It may not be as ideal as a Global Sun Oven, but with a few additional tweaks it could certainly be your best bang for the buck. Since I don’t need a building permit to replace an existing stove where my retreat is hopefully they will leave me alone rather than get out of the car and hike up a mountain. And all are there with blessings from Gugal-Okroy’s neighbors, with whom she had consulted beforehand.
I think it will be beneficial to be longer because I could easily place a rectangular baking dish inside if I wanted. And does anyone really believe that the one’s who knock out our power are going to be the one’s who help us restore it????
Class enemies are completely expendable – mere pests to be exterminated in a kinder, gentler, incremental, Fabian way if the sheeple cooperate.
