Air Force Survival Training Manual – Free Download Given that there are so many survival manuals out there, it’s hard to know which ones are worth having in your survival library. Well, if there’s one survival manual that I highly recommend it is the Air Force Survival Training manual. The Air Force Survival Training manual (specifically the AFR-64) is, in my opinion, the cream of the crop. In fact, many of the numerous commercial and military books and manuals are based off of this manual (much of which which is copied verbatim — both the words and text!). I feel it is much better than the Army Survival Manual (FM 3-05.70) and even has a slight edge over Wiseman’s SAS Survival Handbook (which is also excellent). Here is just a portion of what this 600 page manual contains: first aid for illness and injuryfinding your way without a mapbuilding a firefinding food and waterusing ropes and tying knotsmountain survivalconcealment techniquessignaling for helpsurvival at seabuilding sheltersanimal trackingpredicting the weatherand much more…

untitled untitled Massive Open Online Courses, aka MOOCs, Transform Higher Education and Science When campus president Wallace Loh walked into Juan Uriagereka's office last August, he got right to the point. “We need courses for this thing — yesterday!” Uriagereka, associate provost for faculty affairs at the University of Maryland in College Park, knew exactly what his boss meant. Campus administrators around the world had been buzzing for months about massive open online courses, or MOOCs: Internet-based teaching programs designed to handle thousands of students simultaneously, in part using the tactics of social-networking websites. To supplement video lectures, much of the learning comes from online comments, questions and discussions. Participants even mark one another's tests. MOOCs had exploded into the academic consciousness in summer 2011, when a free artificial-intelligence course offered by Stanford University in California attracted 160,000 students from around the world — 23,000 of whom finished it.

How to Put Together the Ultimate Survival Kit Would you be willing to stake your life on your survival kit? I would. There are so many debates when it comes to the perfect survival kit. In my opinion, the items you choose to be in a survival kit can be very different based on the situation you see yourself in (maritime vs. desert survival) as well as your level of skill. For that reason there are a number of factors that determine what items you ultimately put in it. For this article, I will explain to you how I organize my kit, the elements that make it up, and hopefully provide some inspiration for your own. My entire kit is based off of three tiers — one that I carry with me, one that I keep in my car (and sometimes on me), and one that is in my home ready to go in a moments notice if I had to bug out. The Three-Tiered Survival Kit First Tier: This ‘kit’ includes those items that you have with you at all times. Folding Knife: If you’ve ever been in a survival situation (planned or not) you know how essential a knife is. Conclusion

In Search Of 'the Telepathy Center' Some believe in the power of telepathy. Some believe in the power of fMRI. And putting the two together led a team of experimenters from the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, and the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, Vivekananda Yoga Research Foundation, Bangalore, India to perform : “Probably the first fMRI study to analyse the neuroanatomical correlates of telepathy.” They asked Mr. Gerard Senehi (his brain pictured at right) “… well known for his abilities to perform various paranormal tasks such as telekinesis, mind reading and telepathy” to try to reproduce an unseen sketch which had been drawn by the experimenter. “The image reproduced by the ‘mentalist’ showed striking similarity to the original drawn by the experimenter.” - whereas the drawing by the control subject did not. “This study’s findings are suggestive of an association between telepathy and the right parahippocampal gyrus.”
