The Undiscovered Bedrooms of Manhattan A friend of mine once told me about the "typical dream of a New Yorker," as he described it, wherein a homeowner pushes aside some coats and sweaters in the upstairs closet... only to reveal a door, and, behind that, another room, and, beyond that, perhaps even a whole new wing secretly attached to the back of the house... Always fantasizing about having more space in Manhattan. And so I was thinking today that you could go around Manhattan with a microphone, asking people who have had that dream to describe it, recording all this, live, for the radio – or you ask people who have never had that dream simply to ad lib about what it might be like to discover another room, and you ask them to think about what kind of room they would most like to discover, tucked away inside a closet somewhere in their apartment.What additions to space do the people of New York secretly long for? (With thanks to Robert Krulwich, who puts up with emails from me full of ideas like this...).

OKC Camping Trip | Survival School OKC Camping Trip About a month ago I decided to go do some storm work in OKC, since the Fort Smith area seems to be dead for construction right now. I decided to camp out instead of getting a hotel room and save some money. So for the last 3-4 weeks I have been camping out by the lake and going to work in the morning. But what I really wanted to talk about in this story is the crazy fish! I think survivalism is very much like martial arts in a lot of ways.

Smuggling is the illegal transportation of objects or people, such as out of a building, into a prison, or across an international border, in violation of applicable laws or other regulations. There are various motivations to smuggle. These include the participation in illegal trade, such as in the drug trade, in illegal immigration or illegal emigration, tax evasion, providing contraband to a prison inmate, or the theft of the items being smuggled. Examples of non-financial motivations include bringing banned items past a security checkpoint (such as airline security) or the removal of classified documents from a government or corporate office. Etymology The verb smuggle, from Low German schmuggeln or Dutch smokkelen (="to transport (goods) illegally"), apparently a frequentative formation of a word meaning "to sneak", most likely entered the English language during the 1600s–1700s.
Wholistic Research - Juicers, Champion Juicers, Sprouters & Dehydrator Bivouac sauvage : que se passe-t'il quand on se fait prendre? (Page 1) / Le voyage à pied Bonjour jak91 (mais ma réponse s'adresse à tous); Comme je l'ai dit à Johanna, Alex et Emeric, à part le stand de CA et celui de Transboréal, je n'ai pas été impressionné par le salon de la randonnée ... Ok pour Raidlight et un ou deux autres fabriquants ou distributeurs, mention spéciale pour le stand du parc de Guyane, d'autres sans doute si affinités, mais l'impression générale est en effet que les stands de régions ou de départements français cherchent plus à vendre des prestations qu'à faire aimer leur coin. Dans ce contexte, il est normal que l'indépendance et le bivouac ne soient pas des priorités pour les exposants. C'est une histoire compliquée : je comprends bien la frustration de gens qui cherchent à développer un accueil rural (gites, campings, auberges, petits commerces, loueurs de canoës etc...) et qui voient des gens passer en quasi-autonomie et les envoient paître tout en leur demandant des tuyaux... Pour revenir au sujet du fil : "Marche ou vogue ..."
FedStats Why Black Market Entrepreneurs Matter to the World Economy | Magazine Soon, two-thirds of the world's workers will be part of street economies, Neuwirth says.Photo: Jessica Dimmock Not many people think of shantytowns, illegal street vendors, and unlicensed roadside hawkers as major economic players. But according to journalist Robert Neuwirth, that’s exactly what they’ve become. Wired: You refer to the untaxed, unlicensed, and unregulated economies of the world as System D. Robert Neuwirth:There’s a French word for someone who’s self-reliant or ingenious: débrouillard. “There are the guys who sneak stuff out of the port. Wired: Certainly the people who make their living from illegal street stalls don’t see themselves as criminals. Neuwirth: Not at all. Wired: The sheer scale of System D is mind-blowing. Neuwirth: Yeah. Wired: And it’s growing? Neuwirth: Absolutely. Wired: Why? Neuwirth: Because it’s based purely on unfettered entrepreneurialism. Wired: Why should we care? Neuwirth: Half the workers of the world are part of System D. Neuwirth: Sure.
