In his recent article, The BYU Kid offered some pretty solid advice regarding physical fitness, but neglected to mention a couple things that are important for some of the exercises he mentioned. 


1.) The pushup should be done slowly - most people when doing pushups tend to rush through them as fast as they can. While there is something to be said for explosive power training, for the purposes of functional strength the pushup should be smooth and controlled - two seconds for the...

Hey Jim:

I am a little concerned about yesterday evening's post by B.R. regarding the generation of one-time pads. It claims to generate a "pad" using a random selection of dictionary words. A properly generated one-time pad requires a truly random selection of letters; it is only as strong as the source of entropy. Using a dictionary of English language words, acronyms, etc. does not seem to be very wise. Additionally, while I am not terribly familiar with Perl, I know that a lot of languages have built-in "random" functions that are not as random as one might hope for;...

Dear Editor: Keep-it-Simple Suburbanite made a common error in thinking that home canning butter is a good idea. Canning butter at home is not a good idea. Botulism toxin cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted and it can be present in canned butter. I'm guessing that Keep-it-Simple heated the...


Dear Editor:

Keep-it-Simple Suburbanite made a common error in thinking that home canning butter is a good idea. Canning butter at home is not a good idea. Botulism toxin cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted and it can be present in canned butter. I'm guessing that Keep-it-Simple heated the butter and either water-bathed it or simply sealed the hot jars without processing. Heat shocks botulism spores (which are normally harmless) into producing the toxin. To prevent that, botulism needs the much higher temperature of pressure canning to be killed. Even then, fat molecules in foods such as butter and...

Good Morning Mr. Rawles,

This is not necessarily directed toward the propagation and extending of tomato harvests, but geared more toward making your tomatoes better. I have found that amending the soil (pouring a quarter to a half a cup in the hole before planting) of powdered milk has a profound effect on the growth of tomatoes.


The tomatoes will grow a little shorter, significantly more stout, and have a darker green color. They even produced about the same number of flowers and tomatoes. I am sad to say that I could not do a taste test between the fruit of the two groups (non milk and milk) because a hailstorm came by...

I love to see teens experimenting!  It's a very good thing.  Learning how to propagate plants from suckers/leaves/etc is a very useful skill.


But an easier way to maximize your tomato harvest easily is to grow from seeds - I keep extra seedlings around (still have some!) to pop into any spare space that turns up.


And the best way to extend your harvest is to make sure that some of your plants are indeterminate.


Those of us who can tomatoes plant a lot of tomato varieties that are determinate - the bulk of the tomatoes on the plant ripen within a short span of time.  Thus, you get bushel loads to can...

Hi James,

I recently attended a close quarters battle (CQB) training course with a company here in the United States. After the course, I was very kindly 'gifted' a 'Breath of Life' emergency mask. I was very grateful for this gesture, and curious as to this product. Luckily, as a volunteer fire fighter, I got the chance to try this mask' effectiveness during one of our training sessions, which can be seen here.


I must say, I was incredibly impressed with this product, and as a long time reader of your...

Mr. Rawles,

I am writing to tell you about an amazing movie I just saw titled Phase 7. I saw it at our local AMC theater and realized it was only doing limited showings in limited cities. My interest peaked, I watched the trailer and saw that it was an apocalyptic genre movie about surviving a viral outbreak. I gathered up the wife and headed out. I was amazed to see a low budget film that was all about survival!


The main character is a thirty-something city boy slacker who has a pregnant wife. As things begin to unravel, his neighbor (the ultra prepared survivalist) befriends him and teaches him to...

Dear SurvivalBloggers,

After reading "The Thinning of The Horde" by Matt B., I would like to make aware the realization that if TEOTWAWKI were to happen during the winter months, which may be as long as five months in the northern tier states, the Transportation Departments (state or local) will not be plowing roads making them impassable by most vehicles. I can imagine the local Good Samaritan plowing out a neighborhood, but in the urban areas, most people do not own plows. In rural America, the distance between neighbors is sometimes measured in miles. A foot of...

James:

I love the blog and a lot of the articles. I am a dermatologist and wanted to comment on the Vitamin D article posted on July 21, 2011. Despite what you might read on the Internet, you cannot get a significant amount of Vitamin D from sunlight. This is a huge misconception. Even if you tanned for 8 hours, you would only get about 3% of your daily Vitamin D. You would also cause a lot of sun damage which increases your risk of skin cancer. I realize a lot of information says otherwise, but if you check with the American Academy of Dermatology, you will read data from experts.

Dear Survivalbloggers:

I just finished re-reading JWR's novel "Patriots". Anyone who has read it knows that in Chapter 21 a number was given on the percentage of the population that perished during the Crunch. This has allowed me to open my mind. There will undoubtedly be a Golden Horde, but as you will read, it will quickly and overtime diminish considerably.
