As we awaken to the realities in store for us in a future defined by declining net energy, concerns about food security, adequate nutrition, community resilience, and reliable income commonly arise.
Small-scale farming usually quickly surfaces as a pursuit that could help address all of these. Yet most dismiss the idea of becoming farmers themselves; mainly because of lack of prior experience, coupled with lack of capital. It simply feels too risky.
The refrain we most frequen [...]

One of Jim's professional specialties since 1984 has been cold weather safety and survival. This over the air radio series will draw upon material from formal classes he's been teaching since 1984 when he authored the course ?Without Fire Or Shelter™? (WOFOS). After a couple of years he was in demand by industrial clients to teach winter safety to their workers, and for them he tailored the class ?Winter Safety Made Real™? (WSMR). In 1992 Jim began taking his industrial clients into [...]

In this episode of Keeping It Real: Urban Survival for the Real World I decided to put together three of my articles from Survival Quarterly Magazine to help guide you through the psychological, physiological and mental aspects of facing aggressive conflict. Often times we focus years of our life into training physical self-defense techniques but almost ignore an equally important piece of any good self-defense plan, bringing our body and mindset into the plan. With this episode I hope to get yo [...]
“Cannabis” refers to the plant that is commonly called "marijuana." The two terms are often used interchangeably. However, "cannabis" is the historical name that has been used in the medical literature.
While public sentiments towards marijuana have recently changed to the point where two states have now voted to make it legal for recreational use, few people understand the actual history of cannabis as a medical plant in the United States, and how it came to be classified as an illegal dru [...]
In this episode, Part 4, Jim Phillips continues to deliver more solid facts on winter clothing performance. Jim teaches the true how and why of cold weather clothing, rather than a particular brand of something to buy. A correctly informed person makes good buy decisions. Understanding the truth about insulation is important for your cold weather comfort and safety. A key part of this is what materials to use and why, rather than just going with a glitzy ad or an in your face sales pitch. The cl [...]

Max Yemets emigrated from the Ukraine at a young. But he kept a large group of contacts among his former country men over the years. Therefore, he’s able to give us a good picture of what’s actually go on there now. Things are not what they appear to be according to the Russian Press. The people rejected the Russian puppet and deposed him. Putin could not accept their judgment and sprung into action. The US watched from the sidelines and now has no idea [...]

The previous four parts of WSMR have presented the physical science and physiological principles behind staying warm in winter. If you can keep all parts of your body warm, then winter and cold weather are not an issue. Once you know how things actually work you can find or build whatever you may need. With all of this back ground, in today's class and subsequent classes we will be applying this new understanding to take care of the body with proper clothing, nutrition, attitudes and practices.

President Obama’s 2013 advisory panel on NSA spying included some interesting people considering that the justification for such crimes against democracy always go back to 9/11. One member was Cass Sunstein, who had previously advised the president to “cognitively infiltrate” citizen groups that sought the truth about 9/11. Another panel member was Richard Clarke, the former “counterterrorism czar,” whose opinions on the sub [...]
