With North Korea testing nukes again and launching a bunch of missiles and Iran beating its chest like a gorilla’s warning (not to mention they’re outright telling of how they want to annihilate Israel), I think it’s pretty clear that we’re in a new era of crisis threats. I don’t think we’ve been this close to someone detonating a nuke in anger since the 1980’s. If you haven’t given … Continue reading

A Couple of Things to Keep in Mind

Last weekend I went on a fishing trip to northern New Mexico, courtesy of my work. It was a most excellent time and I got to do some relaxing away from the computer for a bit.  Here’s a snapshot of one of the lakes: Since I drove up there and it was a 10 hour trip each way, I had a lot of time to think. One of the things that I pondered about was how many potential events that are currently facing us. We’ve covered these in the podcasts and in this blog, so there’s no need to list … Continue reading

Swine flu, or Influenza A (H1N1), is still a concern.  I know that it might not have seem that way if the only place you get your news is from TV/Radio, but it is still a serious and potentially bad situation.  I’m surprised that the WHO hasn’t yet rasied the Pandemic Flu Alert to Level 6, which is the highest and signifies a full global pandemic, as Swine flu is still spreading throughout the globe. This current Swine Flu turned out to be a very weak strain of flu, at least so far.  While that sounds good, you should keep … Continue reading
