Fight or Flight: How To Avoid or Respond to Violent Attacks (The Prepared Citizen Series Book 3)

by Antaeus

Do you know how to survive a violent attack?

We live in a time when a trip to the mall or a movie theater could bring you face-to-face with a mass shooting or terrorist attack. Incidents involving mass shootings, muggings, terrorist attacks, home invasions, and other attacks on the general public are no longer the exception. They are on the rise and becoming more violent and deadly.

When it comes to surviving an attack, you are either prepared or unprepared; there is no third option. It’s a fact that the first people to take action during any type of attack, usually survive it.

“Fight or Flight” instructs the reader on how to avoid and survive these attacks at home, at work, or on the street. It also teaches the reader how to prepare for, avoid, and survive a violent personal encounter anywhere at any time.

Real self-defense and survival skills are not reactive, they are proactive. Most people don’t react to a dangerous situation until it’s too late. Being a survivor means practicing situational awareness, and being physically and mentally able to defend yourself.

Staying alive in a dangerous situation begins long before any physical confrontation takes place. “Fight or Flight” tells you how using situational awareness can give you an advantage in dangerous situations, regardless of your physical ability or skill level.



A.P.J Abdul kalam Quotes

by Explorer

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, in full Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, (born October 15, 1931, Rameswaram, Indiaâ??died July 27, 2015, Shillong), Indian scientist and politician who played a leading role in the development of India’s missile and nuclear weapons programs. He was president of India from 2002 to 2007.

Kalam earned a degree in aeronautical engineering from the Madras Institute of Technology and in 1958 joined the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). He soon moved to the Indian Space Research Organisation, where he was project director of the SLV-III, India’s first indigenously designed and produced satellite launch vehicle. Rejoining DRDO in 1982, Kalam planned the program that produced a number of successful missiles, which helped earned him the nickname “Missile Man.”

From 1992 to 1997 Kalam was scientific adviser to the defense minister, and he later served as principal scientific adviser (1999-2001) to the government with the rank of cabinet minister. His prominent role in the country’s 1998 nuclear weapons tests established Kalam as a national hero, although the tests caused great concern in the international community. In 1998 Kalam put forward a countrywide plan called Technology Vision 2020, which he described as a road map for transforming India from a less-developed to a developed society in 20 years. The plan called for, among other measures, increasing agricultural productivity, emphasizing technology as a vehicle for economic growth, and widening access to health care and education.

Chronicles in History: Windows into the Future

by Timothy M. Powers

Through the writings of Tim Powers, you will discover not only what true patriotism is, but just how deep the corruption of our government really runs. I became familiar with Tim through his writings for the Western Center of Journalism and have been a true follower ever since. He has a distinct talent for not only bringing to light the truth, but being able to keep you on the edge of your seat while so eloquently displaying facts that will make you take a second look at the powers that are truly controlling America.



Practical Municipal Administration

by J H Maré

On 30 May 2018 the City Press reported that most of South Africa’s 257 municipalities are in financial dire straits with a mere 33 (13%) in full compliance with the relevant legal requirements, producing financial statements and performance reports. The most recent audit report from the Auditor General, Kimi Makwetu, revealed that nearly a third (31%) of all municipalities are not financially viable and thus no longer sustainable business concerns. This is a national crisis and requires a joint effort across political, geographical and jurisdictional boundaries to get municipalities working properly.
“The challenge is to envision new and better ways to achieve our purpose in a continuously changing world – ways that are often in conflict with what worked in the past.” – R. Strata.
The book, “Practical Municipal Administration”, was written by J.H. Maré (B.Com; M.P.A.) to assist Municipal Managers, Senior Managers, Support Staff, and Public Administration students to combine tried and tested methodologies with current research on best practice to develop a modern working practice to ensure the financial viability and future of our municipalities. Several sections of the book can be implemented as training modules and covers the following issues: Planning; Implementation; Performance Improvement; and Training. Throughout, the emphasis is on leadership and the importance of management’s role in all processes.
This is what some critics had to say about the book:
1.Daleen Stuart – “A very practical book that covers everything regarding municipal administration. The chapters are divided such that each one can be used on its own as either a training or information session but it also forms an integral part of the whole.”

[Biography – Daleen Stuart is the MD of the Institute of Business Management of Southern Africa with the following qualifications: B.Sc (Maths and Mathematical Statistics); Registered HR Practitioner – Specialist Registered with SABBP; Diploma in Financial Markets; Diploma in Financial Management; Diploma in Business Management.]
2.Ferdi König is of opinion that this book contains information relevant to the tasks of the senior manager in a municipality. It is also an instrument in the hands of senior management to train his/her staff provided he/she has the required theoretical background, knowledge and practical skills to confer such knowledge and skills on his/her staff.

[Biography РFerdi K̦nig (B.Comm, MPA, MPhil) is an independent international local governance expert specializing in local governance political and administrative decentralisation with 20 years practical experience in West, Central and Southern Africa.]
3.Johan Kuhrau.This book, written by a professional who spent a life time in the trenches, will serve as a working manual for Municipal Administrators. The author also spent many years on Strategic Management Training for Councillors and Senior Managers. I salute Jan Maré for his determination and dedication to record in book form an excellent guide to students, our future leaders and practitioners in Local Government.”

[Biography – Johan Kuhrau has been working at Johannesburg, Western Area, Witbank Municipality, Stanger, & Pinetown Municipalities and after amalgamation, Inner West, Western Area (Associate Town Clerk and Executive Director; Corporate Service) and finally at eThekwini Municipality, Durban.
His qualifications include: Bachelor of Law; Graduate Member of the Institute of Town Clerks; Member of the Institute of Administration and Commerce of Southern Africa; Associate Member of the Institute of Personnel Management; Associate Member of the Institute Municipal Personnel Practitioners.]



Dowsing For Prisoners: Answers From Above

by Reverend Mike Wanner

Dowsing is real, and its’ effectiveness is subject to the skill of the dowser. You can potentially increase your information gathering process exponentially and gain an edge over any conventional methods you use to gather, sort and absorb information.

While I will move right into the educational possibilities that might be helpful today for those taking classes, I will withhold the real treasure until the end of the document.

It is an excellent idea to learn how to dowse subtly since there will be many times that you can use decision assistance where you would not like to be obvious.

The books that I have previously published so far about the prison situations are:

Language Peace: In Belgium and the European Union

by Russell Blair

The European model of “one nation, one state, one language” is not viable for many nation-states nor for efforts at regional governance (EU, etc.). This book shows how a language rationalization policy, called complementary bilingualism, can provide congruence between governments and citizens in a multilingual environment. Complementary bilingualism creates efficient multilingualism. It also preserves linguistic diversity and increases access to that diversity. This essay shows how the application of complementary bilingualism can achieve congruence in multilingual Belgium and in the European Union. It also discusses the broader applicability of complementary bilingualism in the preservation of linguistic diversity across the globe.
The 10% of humanity who do not know one of the 500 safe languages are severely marginalized. Their very small languages may not even have a standard dialect or a written form. Without bilingualism, these 700,000,000 people are isolated from the other 90%. Not speaking one of the top 20 languages, a circumstance affecting 3,000,000,000 people, severely limits the ability to participate in and fully benefit from the global exchange of information and ideas.
Please pause and reflect on these staggering numbers. About half of the world’s population could use complementary bilingualism to fully participate in the modern world, while retaining their birth language and its associated culture. This is one of the largest human development issues of the twenty-first century and it has been ignored. Complementary bilingualism represents a corresponding opportunity to increase human development and reduce both poverty and isolation for billions of people.
Six Key Words and Phrases
(1) Congruence: the alignment of a linguistic community with the institutions of governance. French citizens speak French. German citi- zens speak German. Spanish citizens speak Spanish. However, with complementary bilingualism, achieving congruence does not suppress diversity.
(2) Complementary Bilingualism: a language rationalization policy for both achieving congruence in multilingual jurisdictions and sheltering linguistic diversity. It combines each individual’s birth language, thus preserving the linguistic diversity, with a common language for broader congruence. The incomplete form of complementary bilingualism is elite
bilingualism and results in elite closure, which uses the privileged language as a barrier to upward mobility, securing and preserving class privileges. Elite bilingualism is all too common but can be converted to complementary bilingualism.
(3) Identity Bilingualism: identities are not like hats; you can wear more than one at the same time. If the complementary language of wider communication invokes an additional identity, then the language rationalization policy is the identity bilingualism form of complementary bilingualism.
(4) Communication Bilingualism: if the complementary language does not invoke an additional identity, then the policy is the communica- tion form of complementary bilingualism. Generally it will be the use of a large lingua franca, such as English or French, that produces the communication form.
(5) Efficient Multilingual Congruence: complementary bilingual- ism produces both efficient multilingualism and congruence. It results in multilingualism because it retains and protects the underlying linguistic diversity. It is efficient because any number of diverse language communi- ties can share a language of wider communication. It achieves congruence because the wider language aligns a unified community of communication with the institutions of governance.
(6) Equal Sets Identity Bilingualism: if two or more languages are jointly used to produce a single identity, this is not complementary bilingualism because it does not permit individual choice and, therefore, does not shelter linguistic diversity.
