The Elusive Phoenician Merchants

A team of divers has ventured 110 meters deep in the Mediterranean Sea to explore a 2,700-year-old shipwreck. The Phoenician ship is about 50ft long and lies a mile off the coast of Gozo. It dates back to the first part of the 7th century BC, making it the oldest wreck ever found in the central Mediterranean. Researchers have now uncovered new artifacts in the wreck which have helped shed light on possible trade routes for the mysterious Phoenician merchants. Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright lies about owning Gold. Are you at risk? The ancient Phoenicia civilization consisted of independent states … Continue reading

20 Creative Prepper Gifts Under $20

Most preppers have so many things on their wishlist that it may seem like only those with a lot of spare money can manage it. Starting out, most of us have purchased cheaply made items, not realizing just how low-quality they really were. Imagine being in a severe emergency only to find that the gear in your bug out bag either breaks the first time you use it. That’s a nightmare scenario, for sure. You don’t have to be a victim of cheap and poor quality survival gear and supplies — not when your life could depend on it! We’ve combed … Continue reading

The NFL and Vast Pacific Exploration

Moana, the new Polynesian-princess animated feature from Disney, is like a less on-the-nose version of Interstellar, the 2014 Christopher Nolan science-fiction epic set on a dying Earth that has cravenly given up on space exploration. Nolan’s characters complain overtly that humanity has lost its urge to settle new worlds (an implicit criticism of the smallness of current identity politics). But in Moana, Disney’s veteran directing team of Ron Clements and John Musker more artfully turn to the astonishing history of the Polynesian settlement of the vast Pacific as an optimistic metaphor suggesting that humanity’s current stagnation in space won’t endure. … Continue reading

Google’s Biased Search Engine Exposed

Hillary Clinton’s ties to Google, CNN, PBS, and The New York Times illustrate the conspiracy among these organization who tried to help Hillary be crowned leader of the free world. New York Times Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. has admitted that his paper was unconstitutionally biased and disgraced the very principle of the First Amendment. Sulzberger admits the paper was biased by saying they underestimated Donald Trump’s support among American voters. He then claimed they would “rededicate ourselves” to the newspaper’s standards of “honestly” reporting the news. At least he admitted they were rigging the game. A new study has been released on Google and … Continue reading

The Beer Emergency of 1921

The 18th Amendment to the US Constitution went into effect in 1920 and was not repealed until December 1933. The purpose of Prohibition was to cure American society of all the ills that had supposedly befallen it. However, for most people, Prohibition was a merry period marked with increases in drinking, gambling, and corruption. Above all, Prohibition encouraged high levels of creativity in attempts to get around the law at all levels of society. Current Prices on popular forms of Silver Bullion 10 The ‘Dry Boss’ Who Pushed Prohibition Through Photo credit: Library of Congress Wayne Wheeler was born in … Continue reading

A Huge Dose of Testosterone

Aman with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors ‘shocked’ his tumor to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as ‘unexpected’ and ‘exciting’ because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumors of testosterone because cancer uses it as a fuel. Other seriously ill men taking part in the same trial showed responses that astounded scientists, with tumors, shrinking and the progress of their disease, halted. Levels of Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA), a blood marker used to monitor prostate cancer, also fell in the majority of the 47 participants. Current Prices on popular forms … Continue reading

Ahoy! Can You Call Us a Tow Boat?

Hey, was everyone impressed with the USS Zumwalt which just broke down in the Panama Canal on its maiden voyage? Right, what is it, a $1.4 billion dollar (that we know of) ship and it breaks down on the test drive? Has anyone got the receipt? Can we take this back for a refund? And do we have the 100,000 miles extended the warranty, or is that one more thing the defense contractor screwed us on? “Ahoy! Can you call us a tugboat? We dropped a driveline and the local shops don’t service this make and model!” Now, the USS Zumwalt … Continue reading

Mr. Trump, Don’t Tear Down This Deal

President-elect Donald Trump vows to either tear up or rewrite the recent international nuclear deal with Iran, calling it ‘disastrous,’ and ‘the worst deal ever negotiated by Washington.’ Iran, which has closed important nuclear facilities, shut down half its centrifuges, and neutralized its stores of nuclear material under the international agreement, must be wondering if it’s nuclear deal was not really, really disastrous. In his rush to condemn the Iran deal, Donald Trump seems to be forgetting that the pact was co-signed by Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the UN. Backing out of the pact will be no easy … Continue reading

Angry Mobs Lock Up Bankers

India’s demonetization campaign is not going as expected. Overnight, banks played down expectations of a dramatic improvement in currency availability, raising the prospect of queues lengthening as salaries get paid and people look to withdraw money from their accounts the Economic Times reported. While much of India has become habituated to the sight of people lining up at banks and cash dispensers since the November 8 demonetisation announcement, bank officials said the message from the Reserve Bank of India is that supplies may not get any easier in the near future and that they should push digital transactions.  “We had … Continue reading

Gold Price Skyrockets

A Market Gripped by Fear The Indian Prime Minister announced on 8th November 2016 that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes would no longer be legal tender. Linked are Part-I, Part-II and Part-III updates on the rapidly encroaching police state. The economic and social mess that Modi has created is unprecedented. It will go down in history as an epitome of naivety and arrogance due to Modi’s self-centered desire to increase tax-collection at any cost. Fear has gripped the bullion market, for one is deemed to be guilty until proven otherwise. People with perfectly legal cash are afraid of cameras … Continue reading

Count the Rows to the Exits

A plane crash in Colombia has killed at least 75 people including most of one of Brazil’s top football teams, leaving just six survivors. While the investigation may take some time to reveal the factors behind the accident, the distressingly high – but not total – number of fatalities raises the question of how some people are able to survive such a devastating disaster. Here Graham Braithwaite, Director of Transport Systems, Professor of Safety and Accident Investigation, Cranfield University, writing in The Conversation, explains how some people live to tell the tale. Aircraft accidents, especially those involving jet aircraft, are … Continue reading

Life in Hock

We live in a society driven by debt. Cars, for example, have become hugely expensive (even on the low end) relative to what people can afford – because of the easy availability of credit. Which is the nice word used to speak about debt, intended to encourage us to get into it. It takes at least $15,000 or so to drive home in a “cheap” new car, once all is said and done. And the “cheap” car will have to be registered, plated and insured. It runs into money. And most new cars cost a lot more money. Which most … Continue reading

Wildfire Preparedness

It’s been a very busy year for firefighters, with heat waves, drought, and human malice or carelessness causing large areas to burn from Canada to California. You may have heard me say that you probably won’t  be affected by a disaster today, tomorrow, or next week; over a lifetime, however, the chances aren’t quite as small. Add in your children’s lifetimes, and their children’s, and the odds are greater still. I’ve personally been through hurricanes, tornadoes, civil unrest, and the Mariel Boatlift unscathed, other than for some missing roof tiles and a conversion to positive for tuberculosis (thanks, Fidel). And now wildfire. A particularly … Continue reading

The Case for Free Trade

The Free Market 1, no. 1 (Fall 1983) In 1981 the Federal Register published a declaration from President Reagan: “I determine that it is in the national interest for the Export-Import Bank of the United States to extend a credit in the amount of $120.7 million to the Socialist Republic of Romania (for) the purchase of two nuclear steam turbine generators.” This loan carried an interest rate of 7¾% for ten years, but the first payment wasn’t due until July 1989. Not too long before this announcement, the administration had made public its “voluntary” restraints on the number of cars … Continue reading
