By TedLevin, published on Feb 26, 2014

But since your neighbors probably wouldn’t appreciate your keeping a tank in the front yard, here are five smart security tips to keep your home safe and burglars out.

1. Build a Perimeter of Defense

Securing your home is both an interior and exterior concern. Starting out the outside, it is important to establish a secure perimeter. You can build this by making your home less appealing to potential burglars.

What are the First Steps to do if Your Sailing Boat Capsizes

By thingerman, published on Feb 22, 2014

Boating adventures can offer you the best holiday memories that you can never forget, but you always need to be prepared for the unexpected events that can change the course of your life.

Boat capsizing is the last thing that you would think of when you are on a boating adventure but you always need to ensure that you know how to act when some unexpected events occur while you are in the sea. The most important thing you need to know is that boat capsizing can be because of rough seas, overloading the boat poorly, poor driving and broaching.

You need to make sure that you know... (more)

Fornicate, Bitching and Indiscretion

By Anastasia , published on Feb 24, 2013

“I want to believe”, so says the poster on the office wall of Fox Mulder, the FBI's most eccentric - and gullible – agent. Underneath the words is a flying saucer. “I want to disbelieve”, would be better, under which should be a picture of a naked G-Person. My, my, how shocking it would all be to poor old J. Edgar: his very own Agency has turned into a bare assed joke!

The naked truth, you see, is coming out at last. An Agency that long believed itself above the law has been obliged to face some uncomfortable truths about itself and its more unsavoury practices. Sexual indiscretions... (more)

How Safe Are You In Manhattan?

By ranfuchs, published on Apr 29, 2012

Manhattan.

Those who advocate that armed forces at every street corner increase the security and safety of the nation, must feel safe and secure when traveling through the city’s streets, malls and train stations. Special police units in blue uniform randomly search your bags; Army forces in desert camouflage, holding submachine guns, watch your every movement. DHS, metro police, HPD, TSA, helicopters hover above the city, can we ever feel any safer?

But how much do you trust these armed-to-the-teeth guys, or is it only a big Hollywood production? I am not talking about bad... (more)

The Fall - The abyss calls my name

By D. Sager, published on Mar 17, 2012

... them in the years that are seconds in the fall. My life, going by in seconds. The fall is only a moment, a blink, and yet, an eternal life is born and dies in that moment. Still I fall. It's peaceful when my body has no contact with reality, except for the touch of my lover. Would that she had security that held her in my descent, then she could rescue me. Still I fall. What's left as I look at the light growing smaller in my eyes? I smile, warmly feeling the embrace of the fall. It's a leap that I will take again, given a second chance. Or would I? The abyss waits for us all, will you take... (more)

Media Childrens the Social

By p.d.adams, published on Mar 4, 2012

She corrects her stance, moves past the monitor where she has coasted and coexisted since her arrival. She always finds the balance to appease the elements at theWorkstation. She makes her best attempt to adjust the interface, shooting with both eyes open and a purity of heart un-battered by behavior, unbuttered by lifestyle.

Her half-mind races to theNetwork as if she just might further a legend. She thinks about social organization and how it is now finally paying a toll. Yes, as it should--not in the spirit of sacrifice, but from a place of hunger, the kind of hunger needing no food... (more)

I Swear Santa Never Had This Much Trouble!

By The Savvy Passenger, published on Nov 17, 2011

...

Last week, a Continental Airlines passenger, bound for Cleveland, was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport and charged with possession of and transporting marijuana with the intent to resell it.[1] What made this incident a bit more relevant than most was HOW the Transportation Security Administration discovered the more than 120 pounds of cannabis that was seized…

It turns out that Derik Dwayne Neely, 32, of Flint, Michigan, had concealed the parcels of pot within two Christmas-wrapped boxes inside his checked bags. Since the TSA officers who were scanning the... (more)

Holiday Travel: A Survivor's Guide

By The Savvy Passenger, published on Nov 3, 2011

...is rarely “first come-first served.”

Arriving at the Airport

Airports during the holidays are usually chaotic at best. The better prepared you are before getting to the airport the smoother things will go for you.

I will make one disclaimer here: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has the right to search any bag and conduct a personal pat-down search of any passenger wanting to gain entry into the secured zones of the airport, regardless of mileage status or job title. Even crew members are subject to this rule. However, the TSA has begun to make... (more)

Annie, Forget Your Gun???

...It also most assuredly guarantees that among that plethora of people and personalities, there will be those who have no idea what they are doing, or those who will try anything to bend or break the rules when it comes to air travel.

Still, I find it disturbing that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continually discovers an interesting assortment of “contraband” in travelers’ luggage as they try to get through airport security lines across the country. Their latest blog continues to reveal the items that are found around the system on a daily basis![1] You’d... (more)
