Throughout the different human race civilizations stories of the DOOMSday soon to come have always persisted. Whether it will come from higher powers as punishment for our sins or from mother Nature still uncertain. But what it is true, is that must of those ancient civilizations have set our present as the time in which these events could take place. From the Egyptians to the must mentioned predictions of the Mayans, they not just proclaimed of an end of days, but instead they warn us of a new beginning. This blog has been created to share our thoughts on this topic. How to prepare for unforseen worldwide events or any inputs of interest that might find answers to our member's questions regarding our survival. Please feel free to share.

Stephen Hawking offers yet another Doomsday scenerio. Now at the hands of our own Scientists.

Is Stephen Hawking offering only a theoretical doomsday scenario for the Higgs Boson? Last Week Tonight With John Oliver/YouTube screenshot by Chris Matyszczyk/CNET

Stephen Hawking seems to have turned into the man with the sandwich board that says: "The end is nigh."
Not only has he warned us that aliens might destroy us, but he's also been worrying that artificial intelligence might do the same.
Now he's perceiving a threat that might not merely put an end to Earth, but to the whole Universe.
As the UK's Sunday Times reports, Hawking is worried about the God particle. This, discovered by physicists during experiments within CERN's Large Hadron Collider, is a vital ingredient to explaining why things in our world have mass.
However, in a preface to a new book called "Starmus" -- a collection of lectures gives by famous scientists and astronomers -- Hawking worried that the Higgs Boson might become unstable.
He wrote: "The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become metastable at energies above 100bn gigaelectronvolts (GeV)."
What might this lead to? Hawkins explained: "This could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light. This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming."
Before you prepare your loved ones for an evacuation to some distant star, Hawking did offer some hope with, it seems, a wry smile: "A particle accelerator that reaches 100bn GeV would be larger than Earth, and is unlikely to be funded in the present economic climate."

Preparing for the unexpected before it happens could means the key to surviving beyond doomsday.

Extracted from "Survival Life" site. Link follows post.

You do not want to be unprepared if you need to evacuate. Here are a few tips to consider:
  • Mapping your route ahead can save you time and potentially save your life.
  • Establish a contact who will know where you are going, which direction you are headed and your ETA. Your contact should be out of town and not evacuating, too.
  • Do you know what you are going to do with your pets? Establish an emergency plan and go bag for them, as well.
  • Secure your important papers. In the event of a mass disaster or crossing the border, you may need to provide identification.
Find Shelter
  • Maintaining your body temperature is one of your top priorities. Some ways of staying warm if the electricity goes out involve using your own body heat surrounded by insulation to keep the heat in and the cold out. The most simple way of trapping heat is with a blanket, or you may create a large shelter using mattresses. If you are out in the wilderness and need a quick shelter to regulate your body temperature build a debris shelter.
    You also need to protection from possibleprojectile, such as from a tornado. As you may know, choosing a room without glass windows, or a safe room, is your best option.
Stay Tuned
It is vitally important that you invest in a radio and stay constantly tuned into a local radio station for official reports and instructions. Stay inside your home and do not go outside, unless they tell you that your safety is compromised. If you are told to leave your location for your safety, remember to:
  • Secure any items outside which could damage your home or property
  • Cover your windows and doors.
  • Follow disaster plans established for your pets.
  • If you have time, turn off your home’s gas, electricity and water, and disconnect your appliances to reduce the chance of electrical shock.
  • Grab your disaster supply kit and fill your car with gas.
  • Follow your predetermined evacuation plan, listening for disaster sirens and warning signals along the way. Be prepared to drive 20-50 miles in heavy traffic.

WORLD Temperatures to reach new records by 2047

Study: Temperatures go off the charts around 2047
The Associated Press released this news today on new study regarding the World Temperatures about to skyrocket by 2049 - By SETH BORENSTEIN - AP Science Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) — Starting in about a decade, Kingston, Jamaica, will probably be off-the-charts hot — permanently. Other places will soon follow. Singapore in 2028. Mexico City in 2031. Cairo in 2036. Phoenix and Honolulu in 2043. And eventually the whole world in 2047.
the world as a whole had its hottest year on record in 2005. The new study, published Wednesday in The journal Nature, says that by the year 2047, every year that follows will probably be hotter than that record-setting scorcher.
The 2047 date for the whole world is based on continually increasing emissions of greenhouse gases from the burning of coal, oil and natural gases. If the world manages to reduce its emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases, that would be pushed to as late as 2069, according to Mora.
Mora forecasts that the unprecedented heat starts in 2020 with Manokwa, Indonesia. Then Kingston, Jamaica. Within the next two decades, 59 cities will be living in what is essentially a new climate, including Singapore, Havana, Kuala Lumpur and Mexico City.
The first U.S. cities to feel that would be Honolulu and Phoenix, followed by San Diego and Orlando, Fla., in 2046. New York and Washington will get new climates around 2047, with Los Angeles, Detroit, Houston, Chicago, Seattle, Austin and Dallas a bit later.
Mora calculated that the last of the 265 cities to move into their new climate will be Anchorage, Alaska — in 2071. There's a five-year margin of error on the estimates.
Pennsylvania State University climate scientist Michael Mann said the research "may actually be presenting an overly rosy scenario when it comes to how close we are to passing the threshold for dangerous climate impacts."
"By some measures, we are already there," he said.

Zombie Apocalypse. A Possible humanity doom?

It seems that due to an increasing amount of books and films, zombies are becoming another reason in the list of possible World disasters that could threat humanity. What is real, and what is not?
Well, scientists have said that there exist multiple sickness that could create a "Zombie being" nowadays. The conception of the modern zombie is the "zombie apocalypse"; the breakdown of society as a result of an initial zombie outbreak which spreads. These are basically brain parasites that affect the "rightful" or "proper" functional" of the human brain, causing the "host" (person infected) to react as in "not in control" of his/her own actions.
Whether this could be a real concern to our society or not, the sole idea of human flesh eating - humans is enough to send shills through our bones. Ad to that the thou on these creatures able to increase in numbers and infect the population at the expense of a single bite and the way films pose the rapid infestation threatening to overcome our way of living and the entire world.
Then again, in my personal opinion, and with the respect of those who consider this a "World ending" event, it is my humble opinion that Zombie apocalypse is not doomsday event to watch for. And if a must to be considered, then it would definitely go in the back of my list. Not just the threat of the unavoidable wars that our "leaders" seem to love so much to solve most of our World issues, the threat of economic collapse, and the inexcusable exploitation of our nature resources without an investment to replace them, these and others take the top part of my list.
If there is anyone out there, who could perhaps add to this topic with proven facts for the followers of our site and fellow preppers with helpful info leading us into considering a Zombie Apocalypse a real threat to our society, then please feel free to share.
