If you haven’t yet tried making your own butter, then don’t wait another day.  It’s kitchen alchemy at it’s easiest, and great fun to make with the kids.

You can make butter in a food processor or blender, but we’re going to look at making it completely by hand.  The process is exactly the same, just a little more time-consuming.

The basic premise of making butter is to agitate a measure of cream until the butterfat separates from the buttermilk, using a hand-churn, mechanical device or a simple jar.

When I was young, I was in the Civil Air Patrol ( CAP ) in Colorado and was dating a curly-haired girl a little older than me named Carla. I think her name was Carla. It was a very interesting time in my life.This was the early me back then. God, I was such a studmuffin *sigh*

For my 15th birthday, Carla, or whatever her name was, gave me a Swiss Army knife. I kept that thing for over 30 years and then one day realized that I hadn’t seen it in a while (I’ve been deployed several times and to several military schools for the past decade so things tend to get lost). I probably still have it somewhere in the garage or in my army gear room though. It’s essentially this model .

Granted, in my case it could partially be because it was from the first “real” girlfriend I ever had. I know several people who got them as gifts when they were young or saved up enough money to finally buy one on their own. I could never afford one so I had to get one the hard way by wooing her and asking her out. It was cool that I got a knife out of the deal.

Would you believe that this powerful propellant, that has changed the world as we know it, was made as far back as 142 AD?

With that knowledge, how about the fact that it took nearly 1200 years for us to figure out how to use this technology in a gun. The history of this astounding substance is one that is inextricably tied to the human race. Imagine the great battles and wars tied to this simple mixture of sulfur, carbon and potassium nitrate. Mixed in the right ratios this mix becomes gunpowder.

We have just become such a dependent bunch that the process, to most of us, seems like some type of magic that only a Merlin could conjure up. So, we will lift the veil on gunpowder.

T wo weeks ago, when the Doomsday Clock was announced to be hovering at 3 minutes to midnight , (midnight representing the moment when humanity is destroyed) many were concerned. What did it mean? Will the world soon come crashing down about our ears? What chances do we have at surviving the end of the Earth as we knew it?

Among all the hullabaloo, one group of people remained calm. Survivalists – or 'preppers' – are individuals who are actively preparing for disasters (local or global, it doesn't much matter). By stockpiling food, acquiring equipment and training in the fields of bushcrafts and self-defense, these men and women are, quite literally, ready for anything. But why do they do it?

  We all have life insurance, car insurance, even pet insurance, so prepping is just survival insurance, says Steve Hart , Britain's leading authority on 'prepping'.  And, as well as something that could very easily save your life, it’s also a vastly interesting hobby.

All twelve women who work at the “Show Malilo Night Club” brothel in Arauca, Colombia are from Venezuela. As Venezuela’s socialist economic crisis continues, many Venezuelan women have turned to the sex trade in neighboring Colombia to eat and provide for their families.

“We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” brothel owner Gabriel Sánchez said of the women who sell their bodies for $25 an hour.  “All of them showed up with their degrees in hand.” Sanchez who is 60 years-old, started the brothel in Arauca, Colombia after he lost his job in a car repair shop in Venezuela thanks to the government’s socialist policies.

Sánchez and others in the sex industry say Venezuelans dominate the trade now because they’re willing to work for less pay. “I would say 99 percent of the prostitutes in this town are Venezuelan,” he said.  Amid food shortages , hyperinflation, rampant poverty driven by socialism, and U.S. sanctions, waves of economic refugees have fled the country. Those with the means to do so have gone to places like Miami, Santiago, and Panama. But those who are less fortunate, have had to sink low to simply eat.

This might just be one of the last things you ever read if you believe the doomsayers who predict the end of the world is today. No, really.

A fter 200,000 [mostly] fantastic years on planet Earth, the human race has just a few hours left on the Blue Marble, according to apocalypse believers.

A number of online theorists base their assertion on a supposed 'polar flip', subsequent global earthquakes and a 'rolling cloud' to destroy the Earth.

For the month of October, Bustle's #blessed series will explore how young women are searching for meaning, finding connections to a higher power, and navigating spirituality in 2017.

She then meticulously documents everything she has in spreadsheets, which she keeps as digital files and also in a physical a binder she updates regularly, just to be safe. It’s still a work in progress, but her ultimate goal is to be able to survive for a full year with no outside help if necessary — mainly to be prepared in the event that “the big one” hits.

Portland is adjacent to the Cascadia subduction zone fault line, which runs along the northern coast of California, all the way through Oregon and Washington, and into the southern tip of British Columbia. Experts predict that a rupture — which they they mostly agree is inevitable, though no one knows when it will happen — would be catastrophic, causing a magnitude 9.0 earthquake that would last roughly five minutes and result in tsunamis along the coast.

Shoppers would cross the street to avoid the archetypal banner-waving man loudly proclaiming 'the end of the world is nigh.'

Today, however, it seems we're not quite so convinced that the rantings aren't actually prophecies for a doom-laden future.

As many as three million Americans now fall into the category dubber 'preppers' - people who are making detailed plans for the end of the world as we know it.

But what if your out when it happens?!. to make sure, you would need to be in a bunker now and not living a life on yahoo and facebook.
