If u cant buy silver or gold purchase copper rounds. Chicken wire boards etc. In mexico any peice of wood is gathered up. Get at least 6 months of food , learn to can. Get cast iron cookware. Your absolutly right. Americans fight together ,reunite , survive! Cause its coming all the signs are there this is our warning! Wake up get prepared and do not rely on government for your needs or protection. We stand together for what we believe in and what our founding fathers believed in.
Prepper Parents A Beginners Guide To Surviving Societal Meltdown Mayhem With Your Family Link
I am always reminded of the Irish Holocaust when church and state colluded and thousands starved to death…because they were caught unprepared for the treachery. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Go camping, plant a seed to eat the product later, read a book, catch a fish and cook it, have a bonfire, and buy a nice knife. Start small.
Start easy. Even if nothing happens you will still be a better party person with things to talk about. You are a sheep. After you wake up ull be depending on those who got ready by begging etc. Unfortunately the wild westlaws will become the new america. You cant be fed and u cant be allowed to leave folks areas after u have seen what they have.
DEATH is ur reward so dont go pillaging or being nosey. If u have nothing to contribute the u are a liability. I would say all liberals will be exstinct by just a lil while. We the people will over come. We will not be a prisoner to what seems to be your form of government. Go find a hole. I live in Ohio and have basic essentials such as knives stones and knowledge of their use as well as firearms and with my fathers help I can live off the land. Bwing younger people say the government is fine but look at the rise in not only survival games but survival stuff in general.
Basic hiking hunting and survival gear is through the roof and 22 9mm and other ammos are just gone. Our government has dug its own grave, not a hole. Austin I just finished this book and have been trying to get friends and family to read. So glad to hear that someone else read it as well. There is no such thing as too much knowledge and being too prepared! No, wait, that action is what will throw us INTO this. I Too have been researching this kind of catastrophe for a couple of years now.
I wish I could go back to my early years and started prepping. All I can say is put your seat belt on and wait for the ride to be over. This crash when it happens is going to make the Great Depression look like a skinned knee at the school yard. Your advice is spot on. Nice article but with all due respect, forget the laptop idea. I say this with the following in mind: 1. The rest of the money can be put toward silver, food, ammunition, or whatever else you like.
This also leads me to… 3. In all likelihood, an economic collapse would also result in a complete stoppage of something we all look at as just part of life, something that will always be: utilities. Ease of use. Flat out, not everybody seniors and young children know how to use a computer and many are frankly incapable of grasping even the most basic computer skills, but reading is something that is easily taught, learned, and passed down from adults to as young as toddlers.
If going electronic as a means of keeping volumes of literature small and compact is the goal, a better choice would be a Kindle or similar device— just make sure you know how to rewire the thing to standard batteries when the time comes. More than having a library of survival manuals or a hard drive full of them, it is important to familiarize yourself with what is actually in them. Read up, educate yourself, practice the techniques, and have a plan for implementing the information when it is needed.
I think technology is great- having the world and all the answers right at our fingertips is awesome! But, if you use it as a crutch to real knowledge and skill, then you are preparing to fail. Get a survival laptop. Use it to supplement your core strengths. You might use it to put on a digital encyclopedia or a number of things that would be impractical to store in hard copy. But, without it, you could survive.

I disagree withhim and not you. However considering what you both said this is what I would say. Theco puter idea. They wil, be everywhere. Free for the taking. Just put your ebooks on a smart drive so if ur computer crashes u stillhave the info. Plus id like to add for your stupid uneducated self that the smartdrive can be used to transfer these files which will come with a price. Plus just for the idiots harbor freight sells a solar setup for about dollars to charge a 12 volt battery and all ur gadgets. Its folks like you who willnot be smart enough to survive cause ur thinking shows no latitude or diversification in its app, ication of ideas.
Did you ever get tht wrong. Id like to suggest a watt inverters 1 in volts the other in charge a battery by solar and ur ready for a lil bit of power. Youll not live as u do now but u can work with this on well pumps and maybe a btu ac unit in abedroom window if u dare. Just a thought. Inverters like this arent chaep but neccessary in my way of thinking. I take the collapse seriously, only God can prevent it from happening now.
My thoughts have gradually shifted from, can I survive? Everybody wants to survive, right? Well, almost none of my family or friends are preparing, so when the time comes I know I will have to live with the knowledge that even the young will be overcome with starvation, stealing, murdererers, rapest ect. Okey, I put back everything I need, I manage to survive, but for what? You cant trust anyone, you cant grow a garden or even collect water fron a stream without the threat of constant life threatening danger.
The simple pleasures of driving a car, eating at a restaurant, taking in a movie, going to the supermarket, are gone. Survive, possibly, really live, not a chance.
Disasters Scenarios that Could Call for Immediate Evacuation.
You need a get involved with a community of preppers, get involved with your church, move to Utah, and know your neighbors, and talk to people that share same concerns. A meet up group is great place. I believe when disaster strikes a strong, prepared society should have no issues. But it is the weak links that have the issues. We need relationships with others so we can help one another and it will help us survive the hard times. That idea I will go it alone is crazy… in that movie Lost, where the lone french lady survives for years alone, but she has kind of lost it from being alone so long.
We live in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, and I love driving through it makes me feel so happy…. If things got rough we would put up barriers, and have armed guards just like you see in other countries.

For what it is worth China is not dumb in anyway I think they are prepared they have hedged their bets on metals they told the people there, to start buying as much gold as possible around and the people did! There is so much more to existence and this planet we live on than what your consumer driven upper class American mind has been warped into enjoying. Seriously, put down the Ipad and Redbull, drive out about miles in the middle of nowhere and go breath some fresh air. People stealing, murders, people getting raped…all that shit is happening as we speak… What??
After all, you have those simple pleasures to distract your simple mind from whats happening in the real world. You are the kind of people that should die out first. When it was just my husband and I, I would have agreed with you. Now that I have a beautiful four year old daughter, I would happily and without remorse murder with my bare hands anyone who tried to cause her harm.
I would want to survive to give her the chance to survive long enough for there to be some semblance of civilization for her to reintegrate into one day. If you can make it thru one year in a worst case senario then you might make it if you have a vast knowledge of food production and preservation. Almost no one knows how to do that today.
Farmers buy their food from grocery stores and have no more idea how to make it than city folk. I buy at walmart…. No one? Know how is useless without means… and means are useless without know how. But most importantly, that know how must be tested and practiced prior to need. Very similar situation here. I believe such a collapse, if it occurs, would do so after I enter-into college this fall. My main advice to you is: 1. Invest in silver. Prepare a survival kit 4.
Learn to make a weapon out of anything, as well as how to fight. Learn a very compact instrument I learnt the recorder and harmonica ; this will keep you busy when you have nothing to do. Be very nice 7. Aprenda una otra idioma que ingles learn another language. Also, languages can keep you from getting bored like when you are performing nightime watches with your allies. Make friends. People who will back you up in a fight. Hell, even start a micronation. Have a civilization formed before the collapse. I started my own micronation two years ago.
Joseph and Phyliss Doom, according to the publicity material, are in love — although this is an unusual relationship. The fact that their love will last till the end of the world would normally be seen as good, but the problem is that that might not be very long — not if their own predictions come true. Because something bad, they say, is going to happen. It is imaginatively, not to say experimentally directed by Laura Day, cleverly written based on fact by Alex Hartley and very well acted. Before the play a song warns us ominously of the end of the world approaching.
In the absence of programme notes, the six actors come out of character to introduce themselves and their various roles, and at the end sum up in a similar way. We have Matilda, who begins as a narrator, Misha, James and Jake who all play Joseph at various stages, Ella who plays many different roles including that of the highly significant Victoria, and Maya whose main character is the popular, unselfish and pragmatic teacher Mrs Crudo.
The end of the world is nigh. Another feature in the background is hurricane Maria which affected Puerto Pico in — there is no obvious link but the two are subtly woven together. I was particularly moved by the character of Joseph, who remains sanguine in the face of considerable adversity and rather than pitying himself thinks of those less fortunate. The movement of the players was very slick, particularly with Matilda representing an evangelical member of JACASS and Ella balancing precariously on water barrels.
We see the actors dancing in the canteen, and indeed performing a well-choreographed jog around the town. The direction is highly imaginative, not least where movement and sound effects are concerned. A frequently used technique is to have the actors lip synch to a recorded soundtrack of news footage and then take over the narrative themselves.
Water barrels feature prominently, for reasons which will become apparent by the end. I found some of the external effects — the recorded news footage, some of the projected slides — a little difficult to decipher, but in such an experimental show, perhaps this was deliberate. This is a very moving story with dark moments and some serious issues are raised — a child of the 60s becomes a cynic of the 70s; the nature of mortality is contemplated; a political solution, rather than resilience, is called for. Yet a humorous light touch is never far away. The director was eager to stress to me how much the show was a collaboration of all concerned, and in my opinion a very successful one.
The company take this play to Cambridge and London shortly, but the main event is the Edinburgh Fringe. This summer the world watched as the story of 12 Thai boys and their football coach, who were stuck in a flooded cave for 18 days, unfolded. We could not help but be reminded of the plight of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for 69 days following a mine collapse in San Jose in On both occasions, the development of complex international rescue operations was followed by millions. We were led, single file, through the cave entrance into the darkness of the cavern, only our head torches lighting the way.
This immersive performance engaged the audience in the range of emotions suffered by the men as they fought, panicked, slept, dreamt and supported each other throughout their ordeal. Very little was said as this is a physical theatre performance. Expressions and movement conveyed the trauma of the situation. Although we were all miners in this performance, the action was delivered by Joseph Delaney, Luke Rigg and Alex Rowland — all three trained as contemporary dancers and this was apparent by the fluidity of their movement which expressed their emotions.
However, I do think the surroundings could have been used to even better advantage. We had been reminded of the dangers and there was a sense of exhilaration that we had escaped. This was not your usual theatre which you attend as an observer, this was physical theatre and you were one of them. The play is inspired by and in remembrance of Private James Crozier who was shot at dawn for desertion in February , aged 18 years. Performed in the round, the actors skillfully draw the audience into the bond that develops between two condemned soldiers from different social and family backgrounds, facing up to the inevitability of their fate the following day.
Ultimately, the audience is left with the feeling of the futility and hopelessness of the situation. Tyler Spencer portrays the young, condemned Edward with great skill and sensitivity and Dale Grant gives a strong performance as the compassionate Captain Critchlow who has empathy with the condemned men and understands the horrifying conditions that have driven them to this situation.
Kate Perry delighted her audience in this hour-long monologue performance which saw her take on a variety of characters, from an elderly woman with a Ken Barlow obsession to a rich, hyperactive preteen. Lines were expertly delivered and her transformation into six different characters was seamless and natural. It was also amusing to see Perry take on the role of children attempting to articulate the behaviour of adults around them, fluctuating between discernment and naivety. In short, if you have even the faintest interest in character comedy, The Very Perry Show is well worth a watch.
This production can only bolster their reputation 5-stars, FringeGuru. The tone is relaxed and conversational, sentences casually left unfinished, trains of thought started and abandoned. The tone darkens. As Alex recounts the sudden event that overtakes and ruins his life, the halting sentences become more broken, his gestures remain tiny but become more tense, the silences become painfully longer, the audience even quieter if that were possible.
Self-accusing in his misery, he tries to recount the cruel remark he says he made to his father-in-law, but swerves away from it. In the end considering God, he can only say that he thinks we will, eventually, understand. I went to this performance with innocent mind and ear, in other words knowing nothing about it at all. Writing some hours later, the impact of the play is still sharply with me, and will probably remain so. The conversational tone and the lighted auditorium make the listeners feel close to the speaker, and his devastation conveys itself acutely.
It feels almost intrusive to look at such pain, but look we must. The play is expertly written, but it is the actor who brings it vividly before the audience, involving them in his lost happiness and present heartbreak. And all in 30 minutes. This must surely be a contender for Best Actor in the Fringe awards, and is highly recommended for anyone who might appreciate a short but gripping theatrical half hour.
The theme is expressed through spokesperson Arabella Slater, a young woman from an upper middle class family. Mr and Mrs Slater are more concerned about the aphids on their roses than the trauma suffered by Mrs. Apart from Arabella, wearing a dress and staying in character, the young cast of seven play a variety of characters.
Dressed uniformly in white shirts and dark trousers all played male and female roles very effectively. Well done to the authors for incorporating these appropriate lighter moments into the drama. The action cleverly shifts between the Slater household, the munitions factory where Arabella works, the front line and places Arabella that visits. The subject matter is dark. This is reflected well through the costumes, the sparse set in which the family dining table doubles as the back wall of a trench, the lights going down to demark the end of each short scene and the focussed dialogue moving the action along and increasing our understanding of the characters.
Scene changes were swift with the cast moving confidently around the stage. The device of announcing the setting of each scene worked well as did the use of mime rather than props, which would slowed have down the action. The development of the characters was good. The three British soldiers come across a young German.
The development of the relationship between them shows compassion and understanding. The young writers were able to transport themselves back years and create a realistic situation. Through the reactions of different characters, they showed understanding of the psychological impact of trench warfare on the different soldiers. Caitlin M as Private Hopper, hit just the right note with her facial reactions to Captain Barker and growing compassion and concern for comrades, and the young German soldier, in the trench.
Individual cast members played a range of characters convincingly. Anna W playing Mable, a cheery factory lass, one moment and Mrs. Arbuthnot, a self-congratulatory lady with political ambitions the next exemplified this. The play was well-directed and the cast confident with what they were doing. It was evident that a great deal of work and commitment had gone into the creation of this piece of theatre. The dialogue is tight, as we can expect from Labute, and the performances by Bates Adam and by Bridie Vowels as Evelyn, especially, are taut, responsive and totally on the ball not to mention impeccably sustained US accents, manner and body language.

Which is not to put down the others in this four-hander. The story-line? The play is entertaining, fascinating, realistic in its view of relationships, thought provoking — and has some great lines — but by no means dark and challenging: the production and performances are strong and delightful. Recommended — an hour well spent. A light hearted romp through some topical issues of the day is a pleasant way to spend an hour in our glorious summer afternoons at the Fringe.
Nick Discombe and Jacquie Crago tell three stories from the point of view of animals concerning their environment and interaction with humans. There is a unifying theme concerning reproduction and breeding which would perhaps not make it suitable for young audiences. Young farmers would be probably be Okay. This was followed by a bid for freedom from the farm. The second section moved to the air with the actors becoming herring gulls. The theme here was their artificial life feeding from a rubbish tip and desire to escape and live a wholesome life at the coast.
The turnaround here was that the female was promiscuous with the male becoming jealous and emasculated at his inability to hunt for food in the natural environment. Finally we go under the sea, the cast becoming Sea Horses. Here we have a third view on fertility as it is the male who gives birth. Yes, really, I looked it up. The female is broody for more and tries to seduce the male into fertility dances but he is worn out with multiple pregnancies. The story ends when they are in contact with mankind. Terry has to come to terms with the fact that today is his birthday and he is now older than his older brother.
His performance grew in confidence as the piece progressed. The set with its monochrome theme could be said to show that mental health issues are not just black and white but a massive grey area that no one has the definitive answer to. The lamp made for a strong directional lighting source. However, the box was too small for a bed and this made for an awkward start, sitting more upright could help alleviate this problem.
Hugh Dichmont, the playwright, has created a piece where the central concept is interesting however; I was unsure what the play was trying to say about suicide. I thought in supporting the work of CALM there would have been a clearer dramatic intention for the audience.
I struggled with the older brother being so successful and pressured by his parents. It could hardly be simpler really. A woman sits in a chair, picks up a folder and reads aloud for 60 minutes. At the end people are in tears. How did that happen? Well in part it is because Rula Lenska is a highly skilled actor and, seemingly without trying too much, she imbues words with emotional significance.
It is also the case that she is not just an actor. She is telling the story of her own mother as she herself told it. Few of us come from aristocratic backgrounds or are called Count or Countess - but most of have experienced separation from, and loss of, family members. The family home was a castle; the family had a crest and a large staff. It took some time for her to realise the extent of that privilege and the gap between her life and that of the people that worked for the family. By the end of the summer of , and over the next six years, the life of the family - and the lives of millions throughout Europe - would be changed for ever.
The experience of Nazi occupation and the camps has been recounted many, many times. For some there is a feeling that those experiences should be left behind, that families need to move on. For others the scale and purpose of the crimes committed means that forgetting can never be an option. Individuals may want to let go but collectively acts of remembrance are important.
No matter how many accounts we hear of the atrocities committed by the Nazis we should always be moved and disturbed. She saw survival as her duty in the face of an enemy bent on destroying her. The visuals were helpful in fleshing out the images: the aural elements may have distracted as much as helped. Rula Lenska said she hoped to return to Buxton. Buxton surely hopes that she returns soon. A chance encounter between two women on the sun loungers of an all-inclusive resort in Fuerteventura whose husbands are supposedly on the same scuba diving course leads to a brief but heart-warming friendship in this hour-long comedy performance which touches on themes such as childhood and loss.
The actors make impressive use of a small stage, and the overall effect was that of a thoroughly polished performance. The advertising references embedded in this joke were particularly well received by the audience as a universal experience in the digital age. The more contemporary jokes therefore provided a pleasant contrast to the nineties and noughties pop culture references Vicki and Pat in Fuerteventura is littered with.
Overall, despite the somewhat cliched setup, Vicki and Pat in Fuerteventura was an enjoyable, engaging hour and well worth a watch. Shadow Syndicate, for this performance, is a group of ten young people aged 15 to 18 and their play is taken from a series of ten works Connections published each year by the National Theatre for young people to perform. The cast selected this particular play themselves. The talent of the cast, combined with that of the director Ian Lund, has resulted in a remarkably powerful, unfalteringly credible and thoroughly engaging performance.
They succeeded in making the scenario so real that it felt almost intrusive to be watching this portrayal and glimpse of realities and dilemmas facing teenagers at school in Britain today. There was occasionally that palpable silence that you get in a theatre when you know that everyone is on the edge of their seats.
Key roles were played out confidently and assuredly by Irene E Rachel , Isobel M Melina and Alissia D Suhayla ; their parts being well-complemented by the actors playing Chris, Jordan, and Darren, and other support parts. His occasional pithy observations, delivered dead-pan, were a welcome distraction from the seriousness of the main story-line. The interplay of parts represented by Melina, Rachel, Suhayla, Chris, Jordan and Darren was tense, pacy, realistically raw and never missed a beat — an excellent achievement for such young actors.
As said at the beginning of this, it seemed as if one was watching the real thing; at times frighteningly so. Some projections from off-stage, but for the most part overhead projector remember them? It's about the tales themselves, and the shadow images which illustrate them. Mostly black and white, but with occasional startling colour - well you can't have black blood! Yes indeed. We have the shadow-images noted above, and two performers Sara-Jane Wingrove and Sara Saddington-Adams who work the shadows with considerable skill and narrate as appropriate, with text not-quite in rhyming couplets but with the kind of rhyming patterns which make you wonder what the rhyme will be when it comes.
A charming entertaining piece of theatre which very successfully carried the audience along with it: maybe no belly laughs, but lots of chuckles of amusement and recognition. This young company, 10 — 14 year olds, performed with a liveliness, professionalism and assurance that belied their youth. The play was first written as a TV play in and developed into a musical in It was a perfect choice for this company.
The cast handles these themes with sensitivity and maturity, skilfully moving the mood from laughter to poignancy. The acting, singing, dancing and production were of a very high standard for this age group and it is difficult to pick out any one actor. Miles B, playing three roles, displayed a talent for mime and comic timing. Some of the most enjoyable scenes were between the very believable Ryan, played by Cyrus W and the ultimate teenager with attitude, Carly; so true to life.
Elyse M, one of the youngest members of cast, played Mrs Kay, the teacher with real authority. The dance numbers were well choreographed and particularly the fair scene in which the cast created three different rides through movement. Scene changes were slick, very good use was made of space and the enjoyment of the cast shone through the whole show.

This show is worthy of a place in the Fringe, not as an entry by children but in its own right as a superb piece of theatre. The REC youth theatre has been running for more than 20 years. In the present climate of our children being subjected to so much testing at school it was heart-warming to see a group of children, and adults who show commitment to an extra-curricular activity that provides enjoyment as well as many life skills.
Filled with fragmented narratives, suggestions, repetition and allusions, what is being presented in this one-man show relies heavily on audience involvement and abandons traditional theatre expectations. Concepts are introduced, questioned, and given new perceptive opportunities. Sound is also used interestingly and with great atmospheric effect, often creating a sense of tension and unease. A piece of experimental theatre such as this provokes a discussion, and I was relieved to see that the company had left time at the end for an informal chat about the performance.
If you want a neatly tied up ending or a narrative that is completely immersive, then this is not for you. However, if you want to be challenged, to test your imaginative abilities and witness a new, daring kind of theatre, then do come along and experience this unique journey with an open mind! A set of three monologues superbly delivered by Joanna Lavelle all with a common theme, sexual abuse. But it is not the obvious victim that is focussed on here, it is the other victims that are given the chance to have their voices heard and define the impact that this heinous crime can have on ordinary lives.
First, we meet Diana who tells us of the knock on the door that changed her life. Diana is composed recounting how, when the police came, her husband was wearing a ridiculous dressing gown and surrendered his laptop in an instant. She berates her own reactions to the incident exclaiming that she then put the kettle on in an attempt at some sort of normality. Her anguish emerges as she reflects on the subsequent interview at the police station; how she was questioned and her bewilderment and disbelief of what he had done. She tells of their life together, reflecting and questioning how it had changed and trying to find clues to this and how he crossed the line.
Her suffering and concern for the children is all too obvious as the story continues to a dramatic conclusion. It was interesting how she compared drugs and sexual abuse as addictive crimes. But there is also glimpse of the impact on her life as there is a harrowing account of some of the images she must view. Yet through all this, she feels pity for Diana, her children and surprisingly her husband. As the detective points out, most abuse takes place by people who are known to the victim and in the third monologue Lavelle again gives an excellent performance as a mother, quite normal, quite ordinary, whose loves her daughter, Leanne enormously and describes her as her sunshine.
Leanne was abused by her swimming coach. Again, we are faced with the normality of a little girl, enjoying swimming and being spotted by a friendly swimming coach who encourages her to take further lessons and enter competitions. Her mother reflects on small changes to her daughter and tortures herself for dismissing them. Then her horror as she must watch Leanne, looking small and childlike, clutching a teddy and being interviewed by the police, revealing the kind of things that no mother wants to hear. It is undeniable that throughout this incredibly powerful set of monologues, there is an enormous amount of anger at the offenders by all the victims, but it is the guilt that each one reveals which is the most shocking.
That it was somehow their fault, their responsibility that this crime occurred. The monologues are emotional and harrowing but also thought-provoking and contain a positive message of awareness to such issues. Also showing on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th July at 2. The author Michael Sheath will be joining this after the performance on Saturday afternoon.
Many of us have been looking forward to seeing how they would follow that up. Guy is the result and it looks like another hit. For my part I enjoyed Guy much more than Kim K mostly because I have zero interest in KK and her world but also because the new piece seems to me to be more interested in being about people and less concerned about being a clever construction. The story behind Guy is a simple one and has been largely shared in promoting the show.
Guy Brendan Matthews is gay; he is also overweight, has low self esteem and doubts that he can meet anyone who would want to love him. His friends, especially Dom Adam Braidley and Tyler Steve Banks , seem much more confident, more attractive and in better shape physically and mentally. Guy spends a lot of time on Grindr meeting other guys but is nervous about actually seeing anyone for fear of rejection. Eventually he meets the outrageously handsome Aziz Seann Miley Moore who is an obstetrician and who is looking for someone who is interesting and not some sort of narcissist.
Guy could be that someone. The story is told via electronic music and songs that sound modernish but clearly fit the musical tradition. The score and book are witty and sharp and are never dull. The singing, movement and action also have pace, energy and humour. Even Isaac Cline, resident meteorologist for the U. Weather Bureau failed to grasp the true meaning of the strange deep-sea swells and peculiar winds that greeted the city that morning. Mere hours later, Galveston found itself submerged in a monster hurricane that completely destroyed the town and killed over six thousand people in what remains the greatest natural disaster in American history--and Isaac Cline found himself the victim of a devastating personal tragedy.
Using Cline's own telegrams, letters, and reports, the testimony of scores of survivors, and our latest understanding of the science of hurricanes, Erik Larson builds a chronicle of one man's heroic struggle and fatal miscalculation in the face of a storm of unimaginable magnitude. Riveting, powerful, and unbearably suspenseful, Isaac's Storm is the story of what can happen when human arrogance meets the great uncontrollable force of nature.
The ultimate guide to surviving anywhere, now updated with more than pages of additional material, including a new chapter on urban survival "A classic outdoor manual [that] addresses every conceivable disaster scenario.

Animation is one of the hottest areas of filmmaking today--and the master animator who bridges the old generation and the new is Richard Williams.
During his fifty years in the business, Williams has been one of the true innovators, winning three Academy Awards and serving as the link between Disney's golden age of animation by hand and the new computer animation exemplified by Toy Story. Perhaps even more important, though, has been his dedication in passing along his knowledge to a new generation of animators so that they in turn could push the medium in new directions. In this book, based on his sold-out master classes in the United States and across Europe, Williams provides the underlying principles of animation that every animator--from beginner to expert, classic animator to computer animation whiz --needs.
Urging his readers to "invent but be believable," he illustrates his points with hundreds of drawings, distilling the secrets of the masters into a working system in order to create a book that will become the standard work on all forms of animation for professionals, students, and fans. Gilliam brings his unique professional perspective to teach you the art of awareness and attack avoidance by sharing unconventional warfare techniques and how to think like an attacker.

In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and maintain life amid chaos. After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several of those caregivers faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. Five Days at Memorial, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.
In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are for the impact of large-scale disasters--and how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, Five Days at Memorial radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis.

In this tour de force of investigative reporting, Ted Koppel reveals that a major cyberattack on America's power grid is not only possible but likely, that it would be devastating, and that the United States is shockingly unprepared. Imagine a blackout lasting not days but weeks or months. Tens of millions of people over several states are affected.
For those without access to generators, there is no running water, no sewage, no refrigeration or light. Food and medical supplies are dwindling. Devices we rely on have gone dark. Banks no longer function, looting is widespread, and law and order are being tested as never before. It isn't just a scenario. A well-designed attack on just one of the nation's three electric power grids could cripple much of our infrastructure - and in the age of cyberwarfare, a laptop has become the only necessary weapon. Several nations hostile to the United States could launch such an assault at any time.
In fact, as a former chief scientist of the NSA reveals, China and Russia have already penetrated the grid. And a cybersecurity advisor to President Obama believes that independent actors - from "hacktivists" to terrorists - have the capability as well. The current secretary of homeland security suggests keeping a battery-powered radio. In the absence of a government plan, some individuals and communities have taken matters into their own hands. Among the nation's estimated three million "preppers", we meet one whose doomsday retreat includes a newly excavated three-acre lake stocked with fish and a Wyoming homesteader so self-sufficient that he crafted the thousands of adobe bricks in his house by hand.
We also see the unrivaled disaster preparedness of the Mormon church, with its enormous storehouses, high-tech dairies, orchards, and proprietary trucking company - the fruits of a long tradition of anticipating the worst. But how, Koppel asks, will ordinary civilians survive? With urgency and authority, one of our most renowned journalists examines a threat unique to our time and evaluates potential ways to prepare for a catastrophe that is all but inevitable. In addition to escaping handcuffs, picking locks, and spotting when someone is telling a lie, he can improvise a self-defense weapon, pack a perfect emergency kit, and disappear off the grid if necessary.
He has also honed his "positive awareness"--a heightened sense of his surroundings that allows him to spot suspicious and potentially dangerous behavior--on the street, in a taxi, at the airport, when dining out, or in any other situation. Discover how human beings react to danger-and what makes the difference between life and deathToday, nine out of ten Americans live in places at significant risk of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, terrorism, or other disasters.
