DHS says that Americans need to be prepared for a power outage of up to 6 months

(Natural News) The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) urged the public to be prepared for a power outage that may last up to six months. In a report from the agency’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council, it warned that a sudden attack would likely occur and could cause chaos for at least half a year as the electric grid is now the prime target of terrorists.

“Long-duration, lasting several weeks to months (at least 2 months, but more likely 6 months or more) due to physical destruction to equipment, such as transformers or transmission lines; or the severity of the event resulting in limited workforce to repair damage, or inability to create or transport replacement parts,” said the report.

The advisory council urged Americans to prepare by having enough supplies on hand for at least 14 days. But this number appears to be grossly inadequate, considering the threat and the timeline for reestablishing essential services after an attack. (Related: Do you know what to do during a power outage? Here are 5 essential things you need.)

This isn’t the first warning about a threat to the U.S. electric grid from terrorism. In an earlier report by the Air Force’s Air University, the military warned that an EMP-style attack could wipe out the country, democracy, and the world order. The report also said that it would take at least 18 months to replace key elements of the electric grid that would be damaged or knocked out.

Things you need to do to prepare for an attack

To survive an attack, you need to be prepared to survive for an extended period without electricity, food and water, and essential services.

  • Have your own water supply – Water systems rely heavily on electricity to operate, and a power outage means that you will lose access to water. Therefore, you need to start storing your own water. You can start by storing cases of water bottles around for emergencies. Remember to rotate your water storage as water can go stale after a long period. You will need to have at least one gallon of water per person per day. This will be used for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning.
  • Stock up on food – Food and water are essential for survival, and these two will likely be scarce during a long-term power outage. Start stocking extra of what you usually eat, focusing on dry goods.
  • Have cash on hand – Your debit and credit cards are going to be useless during any type of grid-down situation, so it’s best to have cash on hand. You will need money to buy last-minute supplies and to deal with the first stages of the disaster.
  • Stock up on firearms – When SHTF, the unprepared masses may become unpredictable and threaten to your life. At this point, security is a top priority. You should be taking measures to protect yourself and your family, so stock up on firearms and learn how to use them in case of emergencies.
  • Prepare a backup power source – You may want to consider investing in solar chargers, power generators, and portable battery backups in case of emergencies. Make sure to have backup power to run things like emergency radios, flashlights, and other emergency gears.
  • First aid kit – Rescue may not be as quick as usual if the grid goes down, so its best to have your own first aid kit at home, in your car, and in your office. Prepare whatever you need or might need to take care of yourself and your family. You may also want to consider getting CPR training and basic first aid before you need it.

Biodynamic Agriculture – Who Was Rudolf Steiner? – (CSA) Community Supported Agriculture

Biodynamic agriculture is a form of alternative agriculture very similar to organic farming, but it includes various esoteric concepts drawn from the ideas of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925). Initially developed in 1924, it was the first of the organic agriculture movements. It treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biodyna…

Who Was Rudolf Steiner? Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), founder of the biodynamic approach to agriculture, was a highly trained scientist and respected philosopher in his time, who later in his life came to prominence for his spiritual-scientific approach to knowledge called “anthroposophy.” Long before many of his contemporaries, Steiner came to the conclusion that western civilization would gradually bring destruction to itself and the earth if it did not begin to develop an objective understanding of the spiritual world and its interrelationship with the physical world. Steiner’s spiritual-scientific methods and insights have given birth to practical holistic innovations in many fields, including education, banking, medicine, psychology, the arts and, not least, agriculture.

10 Ways People in the 1800s Survived the Cold Winters

How did people survive winters in the past? Today, you can just flip on the heat in your home when it’s cold outside. However, staying warm took a lot more effort back in the 19th century. There were lots of creative yet odd ways people used to keep from freezing back in the day.

TIMESTAMPS:
Focusing on the hands 0:41
Keeping the bed warm 1:59
A crazy amount of layers 2:51
Hanging out in the kitchen 3:48
Close living quarters 4:43
Spending a night out at the pub 5:13

An open fire in the house 8:57
Eco Liberty Conclusion: Although there is more than 10 way to keep warm but the video from Bright Side give you an idea how people kept themselves warm in the winters in the 19th century especially in the Dalton Minimum and the year without a summer when the massive volcano erupted on island of Sumbawa peasant day Indonesia. The volcano that erupted in 1815 was a VEI 7 eruption and impacted the climate around the globe reducing temperature and caused the following year without a summer. This video give you an idea will be useful for the next oncoming solar minimum which that may occur in the near future this century. Having to survive without electricity to you going to need know how. Here link to wanted to know how to make hot water without electricity which that is going to be useful when the powers gird fails and when you run out of gas that you for heating and cooking. Hot water going to be key to keeping yourself clean and warm. Do you find this useful for the upcoming solar minimum or if you know I’m missing something let me know in the commits below.

A Polarized World to Better Control the Population as Food Scarcity Begins

Eco Liberty conclusion: The real reason why I watch and post video on Eco Liberty relating the solar minimum because Adapt 2030 always post video to share very important information about the oncoming the solar minimum and why it will affect the global economy majority and will have great chance of a major food shortage on a global scale. That I often post videos from Adapt 2030 so you people can be informed about the oncoming solar minimum; because the Mainstream media will not cover it and to keep you in the dark by pushing that Man-made global warming garbage; telling you that Carbon Dioxide (plant food) as pollutant that is causing runway global warming which is not the case; Carbon Dioxide is plant food; plants will die without Carbon Dioxide. People; please give this video a thumbs up on You Tube if you haven’t subscribed to Adapt 2030 please Subscribe to that channel; to give David DuByne the praise and courage for the hard work he puts in to give you the very important information that Mainstream media will not cover.

4 Good reasons why you should give fermented foods a try

(Natural News) If you’re new to fermented foods, you may have a hard time eating them, especially since some dishes can look and smell strange. However, if you give fermented foods a chance, you’ll find that there are many options out there for you. In fact, some fermented foods are not only delicious, but they are also good for your overall health.

Here are four reasons why you should start eating fermented foods.

Fermented foods are accessible

You may not realize it, but you’ve probably already eaten fermented foods.

Below are some examples of common fermented foods:

  • Cheeses (e.g., blue and feta cheese)
  • Pickles (must be made without vinegar)
  • Sourdough bread
  • Yogurt with live and active cultures

You can also try unique fermented foods like kefir and kombucha. Kefir is a dairy product that you can get in the refrigerated section at your grocery store. If you can’t handle dairy, you can drink coconut kefir. Since fermented foods often have a strong flavor, try to start drinking kefir by adding some to a smoothie.

Kombucha is a fermented and fizzy drink made from black tea. While kombucha can help boost your gut health, always check the label. Always buy kombucha with no or low added sugars.

Fermented foods are easy to make

If you’re on a budget or if you want to experiment with food, you can make your own fermented vegetables. The process is simple, and all you need is sea salt, water, and your favorite vegetable.

Fermented foods are good for digestion

The average American diet isn’t good for your gut health, especially since it can often contain a lot of processed foods that are very hard to digest. Eating fermented foods can improve your digestion and gut health since they contain good bacteria. (Related: Natto, a fermented food from Japan, has enzymes that help prevent heart attacks and blood clots.)

Fermented foods contain more nutrients

When a vegetable is fermented, its nutritional value increases. Fermentation also makes the nutrients easier to absorb since the process helps break down the structure of the vegetables.

Recipe for fermented vegetables

Below is a basic recipe for fermented vegetables that you can make at home. The recipe yields about a quart.

You can personalize this recipe by using your preferred seasonings and vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of the vegetables of your choice –washed and peeled (if desired), then cut into roughly evenly sized pieces
  • 4 cups chlorine-free water
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • Seasonings of your choice

Tools:

  • Cheesecloth, paper coffee filter, or tea towel
  • Measuring cup
  • Small jar
  • Wide mouth jar

Instructions:

  1. Fill a clean, wide-mouth jar with the chopped vegetables but leave at least one-and-a-half inches of head space.
  2. Add your seasonings.
  3. In a one-quart liquid measuring cup, combine four cups of water with two tablespoons of sea salt. Mix until the salt dissolves.
  4. Pour the saltwater brine over the vegetables in the wide-mouth jar. Make sure to leave an inch of head space.
  5. Place a smaller, clean jar (or something heavy) inside the first jar so the vegetables are submerged below the brine.
  6. Cover the jars with something breathable. You can use a paper coffee filter with a rubber band to hold it in place. Alternatively, you can use several layers of cheesecloth or a tea towel. If you use a tight-fitting lid, you need to open the jar every day to let some of the gasses escape. Another option is to use a lid with an air-lock.
  7. Let the vegetables ferment on the counter for two to three days at around 70-75 F. Check the jar daily to see if the vegetables are staying below the brine. After several days, tiny bubbles should be forming at the top of the brine.
  8. Taste the vegetables after two to three days have passed. Once they reach a flavor that is to your liking, remove the weight then cover the jar tightly. You can refrigerate the fermented vegetables until you want to eat it.

Here are some fermented vegetable combinations that you can experiment with:

  • Beets, carrots, and fennel
  • Broccoli and cauliflower with basil, garlic, and oregano
  • Carrots with garlic and ginger
  • Carrots with red pepper flakes
  • Cauliflower with curry powder
  • Garlic with basil and oregano
  • Green beans with garlic and dill

You can serve the fermented vegetables as an appetizer or you can use it to garnish a sandwich or grilled meats.

Teaching children to grow their own food greatly reduces obesity, study finds

Natural News
28 August 2018
Russel Davis

(Natural News) Teaching children the basics of gardening and food production may stem childhood obesity, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior. To carry out the study, a team of researchers from the University of California, Davis examined more than 400 children aged nine to 10 years old at four schools in California. The children were stratified into two groups: one that received gardening lessons, and the control group.

The study was conducted under the Shaping Healthy Choices Programme, which instructed children to grow and harvest their own vegetables. The produce were then used in cooking demonstrations or were taken home. The school canteens were also instructed to use produce grown from the gardens, which were then featured in newsletters that were sent home to the children’s families.

According to the study, children who enrolled in a gardening class were more likely to shed pounds within a year. The research team also found that schools with gardening classes had lower proportion of obese students. The researchers inferred that gardening lessons may help curb obesity in children by teaching them about healthy foods such as fresh vegetables.

“The BMI and waist-to-height ratio were greatly improved in intervention groups, with the overweight or obese population declining from 55.6 to 37.8 percent at the Northern California intervention school. The dramatic decrease in BMI, although unexpected in this short time frame, demonstrated that the SHCP was effective due to positive health messages and reinforcing nutrition concepts throughout the school and home environments,” said lead author Dr Rachel Scherr in Daily Mail.

Studies show the importance of gardening against childhood obesity

A 2013 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine revealed that a community gardening initiative resulted in a significant decrease in obesity rates among low-income Hispanic American children. The intervention, called Growing Healthy Kids Program, involved a weekly gardening session, a seven-week cooking and nutrition workshop, and social events for both children and parents. As part of the study, the researchers assessed pre- and post-program height and weight data from 95 children aged two to 15 years.

The research team found that 17 percent of overweight and obese children attained significant improvements in BMI classification. The study also revealed that 100 percent of children with a normal BMI at the start of the study were able to maintain their weight after the initiative. In addition, the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables grew by 146 percent following the gardening program. Furthermore, the researchers noted an increase in the children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.

“Findings from this pilot study are consistent with previous studies reporting an increase in availability and consumption of fruits and vegetables among families participating in community gardens. Although there are limitations because this is a pilot study, this strategy seems to be promising for addressing childhood obesity, particularly among low-income Latino immigrant families,” the researchers wrote.

In another study, researchers found that lack of access to gardens may increase the odds of childhood obesity. To carry out the study, a team of researchers from the VU UniversityMedical Centre, Amsterdam, the Netherlands pooled data from the Millennium Cohort Study with a total cohort population of 19,000 children. The research team found that children who did not have an access to gardens between the ages five and seven years were 38 percent more likely to become obese by age seven. Living in a disadvantaged neighborhood and having a lower educated household were also found to raise the odds of childhood obesity. The researchers also noted that children belonging to higher educated households living in disadvantaged neighborhood were still at an increased risk of childhood obesity.

The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.
