How to Escape from Zip Ties

How to Escape from Zip Ties
In our How To Escape and Evade in an Urban Environment article, we briefly discussed escaping from zip ties. There are quite a few hasty methods of illegal restraint, and zip ties are a method that’s available to any would-be kidnapper. A few of the other methods seen are duct tape, rope and phone cord, but with a little education you’ll see that all of these methods can easily be defeated. There are two things you’ll need in any escape situation, and without these two things, nothing we’ll show you will work. Those two things are time and opportunity. Your captors are most likely not going to have the resources or the patience to keep eyes on you constantly, and when they don’t, it’s time to make your move. Update 2015: We’ve recently put together this comprehensive how to video guide on escaping illegal restraint. The best way to defeat any type of restraint is to first analyze how it works.

How To Raise A Child While Disciplining Less | Diary of a First Child Elisabeth from Manic Mrs Stone posted this (via The Child Whisperer) a couple of days ago, and I have not been able to get it off my mind. My life circumstances are such at the moment that Ameli is in a different country, in a new home, missing her daddy something fierce and surrounded by other people, many with different parenting ideas to my own. This graph came to me at just the right time, and confirmed for me what I know about my child, and about how best to manage her time, encourage her stimulation and in so doing, prevent tantrums and the ‘need’ for discipline. I know that 9 times out of 10, when she needs to be ‘disciplined’, it’s because I’ve dropped the ball. (For example, she’s done something ‘naughty’ because she was bored because I was chatting away on my phone!) Anyway, I hope this graph sheds some light for you, or reminds you how to respond to your child’s needs. On Sale now until May 2014 – an amazing resource for mindful parents.

How-To: Primp Your Phone with Cocoppa! Hi lovelies! Awhile back I posted a photo on Twitter of my pretty-fied home screen and I had a ton of people asking me how I did it. And now that I just got a brand new iPhone, I figured this was the perfect time to demonstrate! The app I used to get these cute icons and background is called Cocoppa, and today I'll be sharing a complete guide on how to get your phone to look like this! I do have a few important disclaimers before we get started, so please be sure to read them carefully: - Cocoppa works for iPhones and iTouches (3rd generation or newer), as well as iPads. - I am not a phone expert and I definitely do not claim to be. - The Cocoppa app can be very confusing and time-consuming to use. With all that out of the way, let's get started! 1. 2. 3. Don't start attempting to install any icons at this point, just click on whichever ones you want to use and press the "like" button so you can find it later with all of your other icons and install them all at once. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Metta Sutta Metta Sutta This is what should be done by one who is skilled in goodness And who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech, Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skilful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove. In gladness and in safety May all beings be at ease. Let none deceive another, or despise any being in any state, Let none through anger or ill-will wish harm upon another. Even as a mother protects with her life her child, her only child, So with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings, Radiating kindness over the entire world, Spreading upwards to the skies, and downwards to the depths, Outwards and unbounded, freed from hatred and ill-will. Each of the four states corresponds to one of the verses of the Four Immeasurables.

Punishment vs. Logical Consequences Responsive Classroom Newsletter: August 1998 Logical consequences are directly related to children's behaviors and help them to fix their mistakes. The use of logical consequences is one part of an approach to discipline used in the Responsive Classroom. It’s a powerful way of responding to children’s misbehavior that not only is effective in stopping the behavior but is respectful of children and helps them to take responsibility for their actions. Teachers often ask, “How are logical consequences any different from punishment?” It is a critical question because there are some basic and important diffrences between the two—differences that must be understood in order to use logical consequences well. Six-year-old Jacob is zooming around the classroom when suddenly he trips and falls into Michelle’s block building. Using punishment This first scenario involves a teacher who uses punishment. What might be going on for Jacob? The teacher takes Jacob aside and begins by asking him a question.
