DIY Projects For Survival: Step-By-Step DIY Survival Projects Requiring Minimal Resources For Homesteading, Disaster Preparedness, and Self-Sufficiency

by Amber Thompson

As you probably already know, this book is going to cover different DIY projects that you will be able to use either in a survival or disaster preparedness situation, or just for fun in your everyday life.

The concept behind a DIY project is simple: it involves you collecting everyday items from around your home and then repurposing those items into a myriad of different survival uses that you never would have thought of before.

Not only could this save your life, but it simply makes you appreciate the simple materials that we take for granted every day.
Another great benefit to DIY projects is that they can allow you to save money. Why invest money in installing a new outdoor stove when you can just as easily make your own stove out of little more than a few bricks? This is just one of the DIY projects that we are going to cover in this book.

DIY skills in general have been very beneficial to me because they have enabled me to become more resourceful, creative, and self-reliant. In other words, not only do I personally find these projects to be fun, but they simply make my life easier!
The whole point of this book is for me to share my favorite DIY projects with you.

Every one of these projects can be completed with materials that you likely already have on your home and property. Rather than throw those materials away or let them rot or decompose, I’m going to challenge you to repurpose into ways that would be useful in a long term disaster situation or even in your day-to-day life.

The specific DIY projects that we are going to go over in this book include the following:

-Brick Rocket Stove
-Cigar Fishing Kit
-Compost Pallet Bin
-Drinking Straw Sewing Kit
-Egg Carton Fire Starters
-Faraday Cage
-Hardtack
-Paracord Belt
-Rocket Heater
-Slingshot
-Solar Oven
-Survival Bars
-Tin Olive Oil Lamp
-Torch

By reading this book and learning about these projects, you will become a more resourceful and self-reliant person.
It is my hope that you will find these projects to be immensely valuable in your life and will use this book as a guide to ensure that you complete each project successfully.

The Wasp Disciple

by John Mayfield

Arnold Matson is an amateur entomologist who purchases a backwater public house in the fictional village of Blinkington on the Treacle. Having lost his fiancée in a road accident several years earlier, Matson wants little more than a quiet life in genial surroundings.
Being the new pub landlord and, to some extent, the hub of the village, Matson decides to invite a few local inhabitants and influential characters to a free mid-week get-together at the hostelry and enlists the help of local eccentric and barfly Harold Garstang to round up the troops. As the slightly awkward evening unfolds and slowly comes to a close, the handful of guests prepare to leave, only to be informed by the landlord that while they had all been enjoying drinks and canapés by an open fire in the cosy warmth of the lounge bar, outside the heaviest snowfall in recent history has rendered travel impossible and the relative strangers are marooned at the hostelry for the foreseeable future.

The first part of this novel concentrates on comical vignettes and idiosyncrasies of local inhabitants, but once a 64 year old secret surfaces, the story develops with much more personal intimacy and pathos as the delicacy of the secret becomes paramount to the blossoming friendship of Matson and the slightly lost and bewildered local vicar, The Reverend Colin Wheatsheaf.

The work was inspired by a book by Professor Steve Jones entitled ‘Almost Like A Whale’, which won the BP natural world book prize in 2000. The book is an updated version of Charles Darwin’s ‘The Origin of Species’ and Steve Jones kindly gave me permission to utilize the fascinating facts which my central character Arnold Matson casually shares and conveniently has at his disposal.

The Laws of World Football

by Alan Philowitz

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world, and it is fun. There is only one problem. It is not entertaining enough for the world audience, and it could be so much more. In this book, Alan Philowitz has altered the rules of soccer to make it more competitive, athletic, and entertaining for audiences worldwide. This version of soccer permits 14 men on the field per team for 50% of the match, two goalies at times, alternative scoring, and options to field up to 12 men with no designated goalie. Once played, this version of soccer will be adopted and loved by football fans worldwide because it is World Soccer for the 21st century American-style!



Wild parkour

by Serge Petrov

Parkour spreads all over the planet at the speed of the Internet. The “District 13” and “Yamakasi” movies revealed new opportunities for self-development of the human. Now in every courtyard you can find tracers – children who are fond of parkour.
The tracer today is a child of the city. His career is a free man running out any obstacles and fears. He is equally fond of heights and the abyss. Tracer loves jumping, because it gives him a sense of flight, and he loves running, because he is ahead of time.
But sometimes things go wrong…



256 Tage durch Amerika: Mit dem Motorrad von Alaska nach Feuerland (German Edition)

by Thorsten Beermann

Der Traum eines jeden Motorradfahrers. Von Anchorage in Alaska geht es über den Dalton Highway nach Deadhorse und von dort 47.000 km bis Ushuaia in Argentinien und weiter nach Buenos Aires. 16 Länder in 8 Monaten inkl. aller Höhen und Tiefen galt es zu bestehen und fremde Kulturen zu entdecken.

Noch vor wenigen Monaten hätte ich niemals gedacht, dass ich mal eine Motorradreise durch Amerika machen würde. Klar, es war immer mein Traum, aber getraut habe ich mich nie.

Auch hätte ich niemals gedacht, dass ich mal ein Buch schreiben werde, was anderen Menschen helfen kann, auch diesen Entschluss zu treffen, den Mut aufzubringen und mir gleichzeitig als Erinnerung an eine wundervolle Zeit meines Lebens dient.

Ich war 34 Jahre und wollte die Tour ohne Unterstützung, Sponsoring oder dergleichen machen, denn nur so kann man frei sein. Das Gleiche galt immer für dieses Buch, eine Idee, die ich am 12. Juni 2014 getroffen und nie bereut habe. Daher gibt es keinen Verlag, keinen Lektor – dafür aber meine Sicht der Dinge und viele Fotos.

Das Buch soll Freude bereiten, die Angst nehmen Träume zu leben oder einfach zur Unterhaltung und Informationsquelle für Reisen nach Amerika dienen. Daher habe ich bewusst immer die Kilometerstände und Unterkünfte angegeben sowie die Grenzübertritte geschildert. Alle Informationen die ich vor der Reise hatte, waren ziemlich dürftig und oft hatte ich ein mulmiges Gefühl, ob ich das alles hinbekomme. Ich habe es hinbekommen, also alles halb so wild.

Genie�t die Zeilen, träumt eure Träume und arbeitet daran sie zu verwirklichen!



L’arca nella tempesta: L’arca di smeraldo nel ventunesimo secolo (Saggi Vol. 13) (Italian Edition)

by Renato Massa

Venticinque anni fa, in un momento molto diverso della mia vita e della vita economica nazionale, pubblicai con Arnoldo Mondadori un libro tascabile che trattava le riflessioni relative a una mia breve, straordinaria avventura in Kenya e che fu intitolato “L’arca di smeraldo”, con riferimento al nostro meraviglioso pianeta. Fu un saggio apprezzato da chi si occupava di ambiente anche se non ebbe un grande successo commerciale. Qualche mese fa, alcuni amici mi chiesero perché mai non includessi anche questo titolo nel catalogo dei miei ebook su Amazon. La mia banale risposta fu che non avevo più il file del libro, che era esistito, sì, ma che era andato perduto nella sarabanda di computer che si erano avvicendati in mio possesso da allora. Rifare il libro in forma elettronica significava dunque ribattere tutto, parola per parola, oppure reperire qualche programma OCR (Optical Character Recognition) che fosse in grado di convertire in word un pdf oppure un jpg ottenuto mediante una normale scansione.
Dopo qualche disavventura, reperii il programma che mi serviva. Si chiamava i2OCR, funzionava online, senza che fosse necessario scaricarlo, e, cosa più importante di tutte, era completamente gratuito.
Quando, però, incominciai a usarlo, mi resi conto di due cose: primo, che al programma OCR sfuggiva forzatamente qualche errore e che quindi era necessaria un’accurata rilettura, secondo che dalla rilettura risultava evidente che alcune parti del libro, in un quarto di secolo, erano diventate obsolete o per i dati che necessitavano di essere aggiornati o addirittura per alcune circostanze che erano molto cambiate. Per esempio, il gruppo politico dei verdi era sprofondato nel nulla, il tema dell’animalismo era diventato molto più serio e più grave, il tema dell’immagine e propaganda era parimenti molto peggiorato, le speranze di pace, benessere e progresso del 1990 erano state distrutte dal capitalismo finanziario. Pertanto, era necessario rivedere tutto l’impianto del libro, aggiornare i dati demografici ed economici, riscrivere completamente alcuni capitoli. Ã? stato esattamente ciò che ho fatto tra la fine di febbraio e la fine di maggio del 2015, producendo questa nuova edizione che, mentre ricorda esattamente gli stessi eventi africani, è talmente diversa e aggiornata nei dati e nelle prospettive rispetto a quella vecchia da meritare di essere gratificata da un nuovo titolo. A tal fine ho scelto il titolo dell’ultimo capitolo dell’edizione del 1990. Sono stati modificati in modo significativo i capitoli 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 e gli argomenti scelti sono ora decisamente più globali di quanto non lo fossero quelli dell’edizione del 1990. Voglio ringraziare gli amici che mi hanno sollecitato ad affrontare questo lavoro, che infine mi ha gratificato molto, e voglio anche ringraziare, come sempre, anche mia moglie Cecylia che ha curato la quotidiana gestione della nostra vita e ha pazientato durante le mie quotidiane “apnee da scrittura”.
