Sugar isn’t known for a lot of health benefits, but they are quite useful as a home remedy. Before commercial antibiotic and antiseptic creams, it used to be a popular homemade treatment for wounds. Moreover, it can be applied on humans and animals alike. (h/t to AlphaSurvivalist.net)
How does sugar treat wounds?
Sugar has specific qualities that make it a useful non-toxic treatment for wounds. When applied in large amounts on a wound, it does the following:

If you don’t already know, chemtrails are the toxic-laden trails you see coming out of the hundreds of airplanes constantly crisscrossing the sky. Technically they’re called contrails, and FAKE science will claim it’s nothing but water vapor and ice crystals due to the difference in atmospheric temperature.
While this has some truth, it’s nowhere near the whole truth.
What they’re not telling you is that in addition to crystals, these lofty contrails also contain byproducts of engine exhaust like nitrogen oxides, sulfate particles and deadly carbon dioxide. What’s worse is that they may also be carrying chemical substances being used for unknown government experiments.

As I travel through Europe, a lot of folks are asking how I can be prepped. When traveling, your choices should lean more toward survival than prepping. (I wrote about the differences between the two here.) And for that, you need a small amount of extremely versatile gear.
In this article, I’ll share what I brought with me and why. I spoke to some pros like Toby Cowern and Selco while making my final choices and many other choices were based on what I learned in their urban survival course in Croatia.
I have an everyday carry kit that easily fits into my purse along with a light jacket. Secondarily, I have a bug-out kit with a few additional items I’d take if I made the decision to evacuate in a hairy situation. We’ll talk about the EDC first, then move on to the bug-out kit.

I live in the UK and have been prepping for twelve months. Two things worry me: Brexit and Grid Down. I’ll mention Brexit, but this article is about testing my plan for Grid Down.
Brexit is the plan for the UK to leave the European Union (EU). Most of what we consume comes from Continental Europe and we are told that the UK government has got effective contingency plans to cope with leaving the EU. There is nothing in place, however, to import food. Panic buying will empty a supermarket within hours and the distribution hubs only hold food for 5 days. Day 6 could see us very hungry.

The hillsides are always brown in the land of fruits and nuts come autumn. After baking away all summer long in the hot sun, the dense sage and chaparral covering the coastal hillsides and canyons are dry and toasty. Though, before conditions get better, they must first get worse.

Background: We bought our homestead in November, 2012. At the time we lived in the same area but in a neighborhood with protective covenants on a half acre lot. We found we weren’t able to do the things we needed and wanted to do in order to be resilient no matter what the economic or natural environment threw us. The property we moved to was about 5 acres with plenty of room to incorporate an orchard. I had pre-ordered a number of fruit trees and had prepared the ground to plant them in our old yard. They arrived after right before our move and we quickly needed to get them into the ground in our new property. We have learned many things in the seven years since we planted our first fruit trees. Our hope is that you may benefit from our mistakes and decide to grow a fruit tree or two — or many.

As the world seems to be on fire in countries across the planet, the threat of civil unrest and riots certainly feels like it’s increasing. People are responding with rage to perceived injustices, and whether that rage is warranted or not isn’t the point of this article.
Often when I write about surviving events like mass shootings or riots, people scoff and say, “That was a false flag perpetrated by government operatives” or “Those people got paid by [insert evil billionaire here.]” The simple fact you must understand is that it doesn’t matter who started it, who paid for it, who instigated it, or who is taking part in it. If you find your city or town under siege by irate protesters, none of those things matter at the moment. These are things to be sorted out later.
