When You See A Black Dot On Someone’s Palm, Call The Police Immediately

(N.Morgan)  A new domestic violence campaign was started on Facebook and its purpose is to recognize the victims of domestic abuse. The Black Dot Campaign is if you see anyone with a black dot on their palm, you should call the police immediately. The black dot is a sign that the person is in serious trouble and needs immediate assistance. The black dot on the hand is a silent cry for help.

From the organizers behind the Black Dot Campaign:

“The black dot on the hand lets professionals know you’re a really vulnerable domestic violence survivor, and that you need help but can’t ask because your abuser is watching your every move. In just 24 hours, the campaign has reached over 6,000 people worldwide, and has already helped 6 women. Please spread the campaign, and post a picture of your hand with the black dot, to show your support to all survivors of domestic violence.”

A survivor of domestic violence gives her testimony:

“I’m heavily pregnant and the baby’s father is very abusive. With words, his hands. I’ve been petrified for so long and even more with the baby coming soon. I was at the hospital yesterday, he was with me, he never leaves my side anymore. I had to have an examination so the consultant asked me to lie on the bed and drew the curtain. I learnt over and took the pen out of his pocket, pulled his hand over to me and wrote HELP ME. I didn’t have to say a word. This campaign gave me the strength and the idea how to ask for help. I am now safe somewhere else thanks to that consultant and the black dot campaign. Thank you, 1 week to go until my due date and I am finally safe.”

Survival Tricks That Could Save Your Life (Video)

(N.Morgan)  These 7 survival tricks are hacks everyone should know. You won’t need any special equipment for these ideas, which could save your life. This article will show you how to use a cereal box to cook, create an oil lantern with items you already have and a way to use nature to keep mosquitoes away.

Perfect for emergency situations, power shortages or just for keen campers.

These basic survival tips are something every one should familiarize themselves with and learn. Even if you are not into hiking or backpacking to the survival scene, there are many scenarios in which this information could save your life. Earthquakes, plane crashes, cars breaking down in the middle of nowhere, and other unavoidable disasters happen all the time, here’s how you can exponentially increase your chance of surviving.

To be able to utilize a needle as a compass, you need to magnetize it. To magnetize the needle or razor blade in the field you can tap it, rub it, or use a magnet.

This can be accomplished by following the directions below.

1. TAP: Stick the sharp end into a block of wood and tap the free end. Tap 50 times to magnetize.

2. RUB: rubbing it against your hair, fabric, some animal fur, or silk.  Hold the sharp end of the needle and rub just the eye of the needle 50 to 100 times against the material.

3.  MAGNET: This is the best.  So keep a magnet on you!  Rub the magnet 20 to 30 times against the needle or blade, going only in one direction.

Suspension in water:

Lay the needle on leaf or cork.

Don’t allow wind to affect the leaf.

The wind-free possibility:

Tie a thin bit of cotton thread to the eye in the center of the razor blade, and hang the blade inside a jar or bottle where the wind will not reach it. Make sure it is hanging freely, and it will line up north-south.

Marking The North End Of The Needle 

You’ll have to use something like the sun, moon, stars, geography, etc. to find north, south, east, and west. Once you have that, mark your compass needle with a pen, pencil, marker, or a scratch to show which side is pointing to the north.

The video below gives more ingenious hacks for your ultimate survival.

SHTF Dog Food, Cheap And Easy (Videos)

(N.Morgan) When preparing for unexpected events, such as disasters or in climate weather and power loss, food loss, one must consider how their pets will fair during such trying and scary times.

One way to ensure your pet will be taken care of at a minimum cost is to make their dog food and treats homemade.

For what it’s worth, dog food is an easy and cheap thing to make… Keep rice, and dehydrated vegetables like peas and carrots. Just boil scrap meats and bones with the rice and vegetables mix. Leave or remove bones and feed.

Making your own pet food is not only cost effective, it is also an excellent way to ensure the health and longevity of your pets. You will know they are getting all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients they need to stay active and healthy.

There are tons of different recipes on the internet that offer the maximum health benefits for your dogs and save you money as an added bonus.

Let’s review some of the do and don’t of what foods our dogs can consume.

Foods To Avoid

There are some ingredients which have been shown to cause illness (or death) in some dogs. Included in that list are: 

Grapes
Raisins
Onions
Garlic
Chocolate
Artificial sweeteners or artificial fats
Raw meat

Nutritious Foods For Your Dog

These are a list of some basic healthful foods to include in your pets diet. Please consult with your veterinarian prior to making significant changes to your pets diet.

Poultry
Organ meats, liver (don’t overuse)
Eggs
Cultured dairy products such as yogurt, buttermilk, cheese
Complex carbohydrates such as rice, potatoes, beans, legumes
Fiber sources such as bran, fresh vegetables, whole-grains.

Some of these foods may be fine in small “seasoning” quantities but to be sure, always consult with your pet’s veterinarian and follow his/her advise.

*Raw Meat – Raw meats and poultry can contain bacteria, salmonella, or parasites or viruses. Your dog can suffer from food poisoning just as humans can. Only cooking will make these foods safe for consumption.

In an article by Angela Colley, 10 Healthy Homemade Dog Food Recipes and Organic Treats, Angela gives some great recipes to fill your dog’s organic diet menu.

Chicken Jerky:

Ingredients

2 to 4 chicken breasts

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove any excess fat from the chicken. Turn the chicken breast on its side and use a paring knife to slice the chicken breast into 1/8 inch thick strips.
Set the strips on a baking sheet. Bake for 2 hours.
Check the chicken before removing from the oven. It should be dry and hard, not soft or chewy. Allow the chicken to cool completely before serving.
Store the jerky in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Pro Tip: You can substitute sweet potatoes for the chicken in this recipe. Sweet potatoes make a healthy, vegetarian alternative.

Frozen Yogurt Pops for Dogs

If your dog loves to chase ice cubes around the kitchen, then he’ll love these frozen treats. They’re made from human grade ingredients and include fruit juice and carrots, which give your pup an added vitamin boost. Yogurt has calcium and protein, and can help your dog digest food.

Note that this recipe calls for non-fat yogurt, which is a much healthier alternative to other types of yogurt, especially if your dog is overweight.

Ingredients

6 oz. container of plain, non-fat frozen yogurt
1 cup of no-sugar added fruit juice
1/2 cup of carrots, minced

Directions

Add the yogurt, fruit juice, and carrots into a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the ingredients are smooth and well-blended.
Drop the mixture into the ice cube trays by spoonful.
Freeze until the ingredients are solid.

Pro Tip: Use hard plastic trays instead of the softer rubber ones to make the treats. The treats are easier to remove from a hard tray.

4 Clear Warning Signs Your Body Is Filled With Toxins (Video)

(N.Morgan) In today’s world, people are becoming more health conscious and want to live longer, more vibrant lives.

Our bodies are made up of miraculous systems that will let us know when one part isn’t working quite the way it should be.

Each part, each unique system, has it’s own warning signs and symptoms, to let the brain know there is a malfunction somewhere in the system disrupting the delicate balance which must be maintained.

When some foreign agent arrives and invades that sensitive system, our bodies give very clear signs that something is occurring which should not be happening.

The liver eliminates from our bodies the toxins which we ingest daily through diet.

We will discuss four of the more major signs indicating your body may have been invaded by toxins.

1.Physiological needs 

If you are going to the bathroom frequently, this could be a clear signal that there are toxins present in your body

Don’t let this alarm you, as this is the normal process used by the body to eliminate toxins which have accumulated there, and clear the way to better health.
To help this process, we must be sure to drink plenty of water and herbal teas, along with adding probiotics that will improve the intestinal micro flora and help the body eliminate toxins faster.
2. Unpleasant breath
Bad breath isn’t just a social embarrassment, but could be a warning sign of an oral cavity. The bacteria from the untreated cavity can not only give you bad breath, but the saliva you swallow containing this bacteria can result in gastrointestinal issues.

When no cavity is involved, you might just need to include cleaning your tongue in you dental hygiene schedule. In order to get rid of bad breath, you need to brush your tongue with a toothbrush. Also add a natural breath freshner; chew on some parsley.

3. Continuous accumulation of excess weight

There can be several reasons you are unable to lose excessive weight, including hormones, improper diet and, of course, an excess amount of toxins in the blood.

Some toxins, such as pesticides, bind to fats in the body and the body’s ability to normally release these toxins is disabled.

Maintaining a healthy diet, taking better care of your overall health and periodic detoxing in a healthy, gentle way, can ensure you will soon begin to lose that pesky unwanted weight.

4. Smell sensitivity

If certain smells really bother you, such as perfume or smoke, this sensitivity could be caused by toxins in the body.

When the body has an accumulation of toxins, and is unable to eliminate through the normal processes of the liver, it will often become hypersensitive to smells.

Your airways are clogged, and this is your body reactin to the condition.

It can also result in a sharpening of the senses (sensitivity), and result in negative physical responses including headaches or nausea.

Tea made of dandelion flowers can help, and can boost the process of detoxification.

Also, using castor oil can be a great help when it comes to fighting the toxins in your body.

Exclusive Look Inside The World’s Largest Planned Doomsday Escape: Billionaire Bunkers (Video)

 

 

(N.Morgan) In a recent article from ForbesLife written by Jim Dobson, we get an exclusive look into the Elite’s doomsday bunkers.

This bunker could rival Noah’s Ark, only this bunker is made up for luxury and comfort and not just for making a long trip.

Inside, the bunkers is beautifully decorated, you feel as if you are in a luxury cruise ship, rather than a Doomsday bunker.

Vivos founder and CEO Robert Vicino announced Vivos Europa One which will be an invitation only, five star, underground survival complex, similar to an underground cruise ship for the elite.

Each family will be provided a private 2,500 square foot of floor area, capable of two story improvements for a total of 5,000 square feet of private living quarters.

With fit and finish comparable to a mega-yacht, each member family will hire their own architect and contractor to build out their living quarters to the custom standard they desire.

The expansive shelter is located in Germany and is one of the most fortified and massive underground survival shelters on Earth.

Originally built by the Soviets during the Cold War, this shelter was a fortress for military equipment and munitions.

After the DDR was merged with Germany, the German government inherited this relic and intended to use it for the same purpose of weapons storage.

However, due to a law prohibiting the storage of ammunition near a major highway, the German Government soon realized they could not continue with their plans and decided to auction this 76 acre complex.

A wealthy investor purchased the entire property, along with all of its improvements, both above and below ground.

Vicino says “We are proud to bring this epic project forward in these increasingly dangerous times.”

One has to pose the question why do the Elite’s and the extremely wealthy continue to build these sort of accommodations?

What is in the future that they deem is necessary to go to such length, in the name of safety?

Safety from what exactly?

Secured storage tunnel within shelter

This fortified facility is able to withstand a substantial close range nuclear blast, a direct airplane crash, biological and chemical agents, shock waves, earthquakes, tsunami, electro-magnetic pulses, and virtually any armed attack.

The complex itself includes over 21,108 square meters (227,904 square feet) of secured, blast proof living areas; and, an additional 4,079 square meters (43,906 square feet) of above-ground office and warehouse buildings, including a train servicing depot.

The typical chamber area is 5 meters wide (16.40 feet), by 6 meters tall (19.68 feet) and 85 meters (278.87 feet) long.

Collectively there are over 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) of continuous tunnel chambers (equivalent to 71 Boeing 747’s fuselages stretched end to end).

All shelter areas are located behind 3 separate nuclear blast and radiation proof vehicle entrances, and a number of other passages for access by people only.

Each of the three main tunnel entrances includes an outer security door system, followed by a 40 ton hydraulic truck access door with hardened steel rods which expand into the surrounding encasement, and a second set of massive steel doors providing an airtight seal shut, protecting against chemical, biological and gas intrusion.

The underground main traffic corridors are large enough to allow mechanical transportation of heavy equipment to almost any point within the complex.

The structural rock provides for an extremely high load carrying capacity of the mountain above, as well as superior shock wave absorption, high thermal retention, stable temperature at an average 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and humidity control.

All underground rooms are serviced by two fully customized climate and ventilation systems.

The self-contained water and power generation system with three diesel generators, including redundant back-up systems, assures autonomous operation of the underground shelter without support from the outside world.

This vast limestone mountain contains a water treatment plant with deep water wells, a power plant, a hospital area, restaurant areas, air filtration and cooling systems, as well as a series of massive blast doors which a tank could drive over to enter.

The above-ground facilities are equally as impressive, including several office buildings, barracks for a hundred, a power plant, fuel storage, railroad spurs complete with a train depot for repairs, guard buildings, and warehouses, all within an impenetrable perimeter wall, complete with military concertina coils.

Once the gates are locked, the only way in or out of the property is by helicopter.

The original cost of the complex was estimated at over 200 million Euros, with a replacement value of approximately 1 billion Euros.

The shelter is currently in turnkey operational condition ready for the common area and private living quarters improvements to outfit the underground complex for a select number of families.

I addition the shelter will include a collection of zoological species, an archive for the most precious artifacts and treasures of the world, a DNA Vault to preserve and protect the genomes of millions of donors, and a modern day “Hall of Records”, to autonomously survive virtually any catastrophe or disaster for several years.

Vivos will retrofit, equip, furnish, stock, supply and convert this complex into a state-of-the-art, contemporary complex.

Private improvements will include all of the typical amenities enjoyed by the floating counterparts, including pools, theaters, gyms, a kitchen, bar, bedrooms and deluxe bathrooms.

The possibilities are limited only by each member’s personal desire.

Vivos will provide each living quarters with power lines, plumbing for water and sewage, HVAC systems, communications lines, security systems, internet and closed circuit systems.

The common areas will be improved and outfitted by Vivos, including the roadways, restaurants, bakery, brewery pub, wine cellar, community meeting rooms, prayer rooms and chapels, nursery play rooms, classrooms, training rooms, computer areas, a television and radio station, the communications center, security and detention center, vaults for valuables, security equipment and devices, water purification facility, deep water wells, interior water and fuel storage tanks, power plant, air handling and (NBC) nuclear, biological and chemical filtration systems, battery backup power storage, mechanical repair shop, decontamination showers, private offices, pet kennels, a hair salon, theaters, the hydroponic gardens, a fully equipped hospital, storage rooms and warehouse areas, all food and medical supplies, a non-hybrid seed bank and the DNA storage bank.

Vivos will also provide the electric transportation vehicles and trams, armored security vehicles, helicopters, protective suits and apparatus for outdoor chemical, biological and radiation exposure, above-ground offices and warehouses, a security center, the rail spur and maintenance station, the above-ground power plant, above-ground gardens and open space, farming, fishing and hunting equipment, boats and rafts.

When each member’s private living quarters are complete, they will be furnished and fully outfitted, their respective quarters will be locked and secured, limiting access to their families and staff prior to lock down; while Vivos will operate and maintain all common areas (under and above-ground) pending a catastrophic event.

Members will arrive at their own discretion, prior to lock down, landing their private planes at nearby airports. Vivos helicopters will then be deployed to rendezvous with each member group, and safely fly them back to the shelter compound, behind the sealed gates from the general public.

Members will then enter the shelter and access their private quarters.

Each family will pay a base amount for their respective living quarter’s area, along with their fair share of the ongoing stand-by costs for operational management, staffing, taxes, insurance, maintenance, utilities, and restocking as needed.
