You are awakened in the middle of the night by the jolt of a powerful earthquake. Your house is leveled, but thankfully you and your family are uninjured. Zombies—A Pop Culture Resource for Public Health Awareness - Volume 19, Number 5—May 2013 Author affiliations: Author affiliation: University of California, Irvine, California, USA Suggested citation for this article Abstract Sitting at his laboratory bench, a scientist adds mutation after mutation to a strand of rabies virus RNA, unaware that in a few short days, an outbreak of this very mutation would destroy society as we know it.

Future Maritime Patrol - Part 1 (Challenges and Missions) We have regularly discussed future maritime patrol on Think Defence but it is an especially interesting subject because it spans so many capability areas and has so many implications in other areas. Before we can get to the discussion about requirements and equipment there are a number of issues that need to be considered. The Shadow of Nimrod It should be clear that while Nimrod might not appear in any formal requirements documents and frankly, the MoD and BAE would prefer everyone just forgot it, Nimrod will cast a long shadow on any future purchase of even a remotely similar aircraft. First, after spending the better part of £4b on Nimrod MRA4 spending many millions or billions, so soon after, on an aircraft not made in the UK is going to result in a rough ride in the House of Commons and mainstream media. Second, the legacy of XV230 (the Nimrod MR2 that crashed in Afghanistan) was the Haddon Cave inquiry and resultant changes in airworthiness management.

Solanum - Zombie Wiki - Zombies, Undead, Survival Guide Solanum is a common zombie virus. Behavior Edit Solanum begins to transform the host from human into a zombie once it is introduced into the body. Through means not yet fully understood, the virus uses the cells of the brains' frontal lobe for replication, destroying them in the process. Once the brain is infected, all bodily functions (including function of the heart and lungs) cease, and all trace of personality, individuality, mercy and according to many, humanity, is irrevocably lost.

Bug Out Bags – The Ultimate Resource Guide What’s a Bug Out Bag? Most people who have a basic understanding of survival and preparedness understand the need for a good Bug Out Bag. It’s probably one of the most talked about items on survival websites and is something that has become a bit of an iconic symbol for preppers and survivalists. If you haven’t heard of the term Bug Out Bag you may have heard someone refer to it as a; Go Bag, 72 Hour Bag, Get Home Bag, Get out of Dodge bag or some other variation. Zombie infections: epidemiology, treatment, and prevention Tara C Smith, associate professor1Author Tara C Smith summarises the epidemiology and pathology of zombie infections and calls for research and funding to prevent a zombie apocalypse Zombies—also known as walkers, Zed, Zs, biters, geeks, stiffs, roamers, Zeke, ghouls, rotters, Zoms, and runners—have become a dominant part of the medical landscape. Zombie expert Matt Mogk defines a zombie with three criteria: it is a reanimated human corpse; it is relentlessly aggressive; and it is biologically infected and infectious.1 But Mogk notes that this definition has been altered by the recognition of “rage” zombies, which are infected but still alive. They are more closely related to vampires infected with the contagious bacterium Bacillus vampiris.2 Here, I review zombie biology and epidemiology.

Laws of Superposition Law of Superposition Abel Olivencia Irwin Altman Middle School, Queens Summer Research Program for Science Teachers Future Maritime Patrol – Part 2 (Dedicated Long Range Aircraft - P-8A Poseidon) Future maritime patrol my well require a dedicated long range aircraft like the Boeing Poseidon P-8A Multi Mission Aircraft (by the way, sorry for the auto start video below) To the sweetshop, poste haste! In the previous post I had a look at background, the wider context and a brief look at the missions. Missions influence equipment requirements, for example, if the SAR and EEZ security mission is discounted the requirements change dramatically. If we want to do deep water at range ASW then a system with short range is going to be money wasted, no matter how cheap it.

How to Teach and Engage Students… with Zombies David Hunter is teaching geography to middle school students using zombie-based learning If you’re like most, you probably don’t remember much from your middle school social studies class. Not because you weren’t paying attention, but because it wasn’t memorable. Studying geography alone was boring, and rarely were you presented a meaningful context to apply the information learned. David Hunter, a 6th and 7th grade geography teacher at Big Picture School in Bellevue, Washington has developed a curriculum to address those issues and is changing the way fellow educators, state officials, and the National Council of Geographic Education approach building future curriculums.

Survival Gear & Bug Out Bags A Bug out bag is basically a large survival kit that’s filled with everything you need to survive after a disaster. A Bug Out Bag allows you quickly grab what you need should you be forced to evacuate during a disaster. Most experts suggest that your BOB should contain enough supplies to last for at least seventy-two hours. Since most major disasters often disrupt services and normal life for longer than 72 hours, we think it is a good idea to have a Bag that will allow you survive for an indefinite period of time. Make sure your Bag is built to fit your needs; some people may need items that are not listed on this list.

New findings rock long-held assumptions about ancient mass extinction New evidence gathered from the Karoo Basin in South Africa sheds light on a catastrophic extinction event that occurred more than 250 million years ago and wiped out more than 90 percent of life in Earth's oceans and about 70 percent of animal species on land. In research to be presented Nov. 4 at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America and published in the October issue of the journal Geology, a University of Texas at Dallas geologist and his colleagues describe new findings that challenge the currently accepted model of the "Great Dying" and how it affected land animals. That event occurred at the end of the Permian geologic period.
