5 Ways to Protect My Weapons During Travel

0

Travel is rough on firearms and the licenses that you need to carry them. Even a few pumps in the road can move components out of alignment in some weapons, while severe traveling conditions or simply dropping a weapon can lead to worse damage. Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to protect weapons during transit.

Hard Cases

Hard cases are the best option in most cases. They consist of an outer plastic shell with a soft, inner lining that cushions the gun and keeps it safe. A portion of the lining will be cut out to make space for the gun, so it’s important to make sure that each weapon can fit in its case before you start packing for your trip. Many cases will also have an extra space for documents, and they can be laid on top of the gun to keep them safe in cases that do not. This will keep them just as secure as the firearm.

Soft Cases

A soft case will offer less protection than a hard one, but it will also be less bulky, lighter, and easier to maneuver. That makes it a valuable option for environments where the risk of damage is low, but the gun still needs some protection. Use them under those circumstances, but avoid them if you need heavy protection.

Careful Wrapping

You can also protect a gun by thoroughly wrapping it in bubble wrap or another padded material. This isn’t ideal, but it is significantly better than nothing, and it will protect against many common sources of damage. Consider this option if you don’t have a case available for your weapon and you don’t need to keep any documents with it.

Transport in Sections

It is often best to disassemble a firearm prior to transporting it. The smaller pieces will be more compact and easier to fit in a small space than an assembled weapon. This is especially important if you are only wrapping your weapon, since it will allow better coverage. That having been said, there are many hard cases that can accept a disassembled weapon, and it’s best to use one of them for extra protection.

Keep Ammo Separate

It’s best to keep ammo in a separate container from the gun when traveling. It is often required by law, but it does have practical benefits. Doing so ensures that none of the cartridges get loose and scratch the exterior of the gun. It also ensures that damaged cartridges won’t leak powder into the gun and cause an accident.

 

3 Hidden Costs of Home Ownership

0

Owning a home can be a great long-term investment. While owning a home and be a great long-term option, it can also be very expensive. While most people can predict their mortgage, insurance, and utility expenses, there are some hidden expenses that are harder to predict. There are three hidden costs of home ownership that need to be considered when making a budget for your home purchase.

Major Repairs and Replacements

One of the biggest expenses that can seem hidden when you buy and own a home are the costs associated with making major repairs or replacements. Over time, all parts of your home will need to be either repaired or replaced. This can include replacing your roof, servicing your HVAC system, fixing plumbing problems, repairing windows, or replacing home appliances. While it would seem like these repairs wouldn’t occur too frequently, you will likely be making them at least once every few years. To ensure that these expenses are properly covered, most experts recommend that you save at least 2% of the home value each year to cover these costs.

Modernization Projects

While it is necessary to make certain repairs to your home over time, there is also a strong likelihood that you will want to make home enhancements as well. Since your home is such a big investment, you will likely want to ensure that it stays modern while you were living there. This is particularly important when you are looking to sell your home and get the best price. If you are trying to keep your home modernized, there will be a cost every few years to make certain upgrades. Projects can vary from painting walls, to replacing carpet and tile, to remodeling kitchens and bathrooms. Depending on which projects you choose to pursue, this could be thousands of dollars per year.

Lawn Care

Another hidden cost that is often underestimated by homeowners is the cost of maintaining a lawn. The size of your yard will determine the amount of money that you spend on mowing, fertilizer, sprinklers, and other lawn care projects. You may also choose to put in a garden, which requires time and effort, seeds, and fertilizer. If you choose to hire a company to care for your lawn, it can get even more expensive. It is possible to save money on lawn care, so make sure that you have a plan in place to maximize the service you get for your money.

In conclusion, owning a home can be a great long-term personal and financial decision. While there are clear benefits that come with owning a home, there are also many costs associated with it. When preparing your budget for buying a home, there are three hidden costs that need to be taken into consideration.

Can You Survive a Nuclear Bomb in a Fridge? And Other Myths

Indiana Jones in a refrigerator

Pop culture has been the source of many a tail and the fosterer of many a myth. There was a time when whatever Hollywood thought up, its audiences imaginations would take over. It used to be easier, let’s say a couple of decades ago, to make people believe you could outrun an explosion or duck a bullet in the nick of time.

Today, we have become more critical of folklore and myths. Maybe it was Myth Busters that made the newer generation begin to ask tougher questions of movie makers and storytellers. It is more difficult to spark people’s imaginations.

In this article, we are going to look some popular myths about household appliances and technology. Yes, that’s right, the Frigidaire type of myths.

On that note, let’s start with…

Can a Fridge Save You From a Nuke?

Thanks to George Lucas and his Indiana Jones film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I had always thought that my mother’s deep freeze would definitely be the place I’m jumping into once North Korea decided to lob a nuke our direction.

And though Lucas defended his hiding-from-a-nuke-in-a-fridge scene by saying “The odds of surviving that refrigerator — from a lot of scientists — are about 50-50,” real scientists disagree…a lot.

As this article clearly points out, so many bad things would happen to you while in that fridge (whether lead coated or not) that just sitting out on your porch and facing it head on would be more humane.

Here are a few ways you would die inside your fridge during a nuclear attack.

  • The fridge along with you inside would be crushed by the shock wave, pretty much like a vehicle in a car crusher. The required density of that fridge’s wall would have to be somewhere in the ballpark of one foot to ensure it wouldn’t be crushed by the extreme pressures caused by the “storm.”
  • The acceleration of the fridge would be so great that you would most likely die instantaneously.
  • Your head would be ripped from its body by a whiplash from hell.
  • If you were close enough for the blast to make you go airborne, you would die upon hitting the ground. Not to mention, if you did survive, the lid would come open and the radiation would kill you.
  • If you actually invested in making your fridge lead coated, the lead would literally melt and you would die a painful death via molten lead burns. Nice.
  • If the molten lead somehow didn’t kill you, then the scorching 932°F air would give you third-degree burns in less than a second. And while your skin is peeling off from extreme heat, your throat and lungs would roast.
  • IF you survive all of that, you’ll have to live in the fridge for the next few decades or more waiting for the fallout to go away. Hope your fridge has enough food.

Charging Your iPhone in a Microwave

Internet hoaxers on 4Chan were the ones who started this myth, but for those who believe such a tall tale, I am surprised they made it this long. And despite common sense loudly screaming that no one in their sane mind should stick their iPhone in a microwave, there were loads of people who tried.

The hoax came in the form of an ad, claiming that the new IOS8 update allowed iPhone users to “quick charge” their phones by placing it in a microwave for 1.5 minutes. Apple Tweeted a warning to all iPhone users that it was a false ad, but for many unfortunate people, it was already too late.

A microwave will pretty much fry anything that is made of metal. Placing any electronics in the microwave (including cell phones, pagers iPods, etc) also puts you at great risk of fire or explosion.

Using a Proxy Totally Hides Your Identity

incognito mode

A lot of people like to add proxy plugins to their browser, or they use more complicated proxies like Tor in order to hide their IP address. They believe this can totally protect them from hackers or law enforcement tracking. This is one of the biggest misconceptions about proxies. Even certain websites are designed to block access to those using proxies, such as certain financial sites. This means people can at least, at the very minimum, detect who is using a proxy.

VPNs are good for getting you past blocked websites (mostly explicit websites or to watch NetFlix in China), but they do not protect you from professionals who know how to infect your computer with malware or trojans. This is because proxies are only as safe as the activities you do on the web. If a hacker or law enforcement place a virus on a website (pirate download site as an example), they can use that virus to track you when your laptop or computer isn’t hiding behind a VPN.

Proxies such as Tor even warn their users that Tor is not totally safe. For the average user, using a proxy with its basic settings is good enough to unblock websites, but not good enough for anything more serious than that. And, remember, your safety depends on your own personal habits, especially when it comes to downloading.

Battery Myths

battery charging myths

There are many myths out there about batteries, rechargeable and not. From laptop batteries to rechargeable AA and AAA batteries, everyone has some do and don’t advice. So, what are some myths and facts related to batteries?

  • Batteries can overcharge and explode. In the past when rechargeable battery technology was still new, this may have had some truth to it. But in modern day, most charging devices are controlled by computer chips that regulate charging. Once the battery is fully charged, the charging device stops charging.
  • Drain your battery completely before recharging. Actually, batteries don’t truly go “dead” — at least, not quickly. It takes time of sitting around before a battery loses all electric charge. When you think that your device’s battery is totally dead it actually has about 5-10 percent charge left. Enough charge to let you know to charge it. Most devices (laptops, smartphones, etc) need to safely shut down before the battery loses all charge and damages the device. Furthermore, letting your battery go dead every day will eventually cause your battery not to work as well. It is better to keep it charged.
  • Storing batteries in the fridge extends their longevity. This does not work and is actually pretty dangerous. Batteries don’t like extreme temperatures of any kind—hot or cold. And since batteries are essentially packaged chemicals that store energy, subjecting them to extreme conditions can prove hazardous to you and your device.

Car Accidents and Insurance Go Together Like Bread and Water

0

Insurance is used after nearly every car accident. At the same time, insurance is always purchase as a contingency plan for a car accident. Car accidents and insurance go together like bread and water.

Purchasing insurance

Even if you are a safe, conscious driver, others are not. Therefore, millions of drivers purchase car insurance every year in anticipation of accidents. Paying a premium every month is well worth it for the inevitable accident. Because insurance companies offer low rates to loyal customers, it is an incredible deal that can prepare you for any accident. You can purchase insurance, and regardless of whether you use it or not, you can sleep peacefully at night with the knowledge that you are covered on the road. If the other party in an accident does not have insurance, you will be at a massive advantage. Your insurance company can vouch for your stellar record, while your opposition will have no such support. When you buy your car, look for accompanying insurance plans. Some car dealerships and insurance companies are more compatible than others. Find a pair that suits your needs, and with this newly acquired insurance, fear no car accident.

Using insurance

After a car accident, your insurance kicks into gear as soon as the company is notified. The case will be brought in front of a court and judge, who will analyze the situation and determine who was at fault. Once this stage has finished, insurance companies battle it out to determine rates. Much like your lawyer is on your side, insurance companies are on your side of the fight. Depending on your insurance plan, you will end up paying a fraction of the initial amount owed. Without insurance, you would have had to put forth an enormous sum of money to cover all lawful and vehicular costs. Following a car accident, you don’t even have to worry about deadlines and time-frames regarding insurance. The company will notify you of all the necessary steps in the process. As you can see, these two entities work in harmony with one another. They are a lifelong pair that cannot exist independently.

Bread and water is one classic combination, and car accidents and insurance are another. They work in tandem to make sure that you are safe physically and financially. It is in your best interest to purchase car insurance and let this magical link go to work.

how to keep white clothes white

Washing your clothes is a chore, especially since many pieces, no matter how hard you try, start to look worn and faded after only a few washes.

Fortunately, there are a variety of hacks you can use that will make the process easier. From using vinegar to whiten your clothes to creating your own dryer sheets, here are some of the best laundry hacks to add to your washing routine.

Keep White Clothes White With Vinegar

When running a load of white clothes, throw in a half-cup of white vinegar into the wash cycle. The vinegar acts as a brightening agent, helping your clothes keep the color you love so much. A bonus to using white vinegar in the wash cycle? It’ll make your clothes softer, making them more comfortable to wear.

Use Ice Cubes to Refresh Your Clothes

For wrinkled clothes or clothes that just need to be freshened up, toss a couple of ice cubes along with a dryer sheet into your dryer. After ten minutes, pull out your clothes and hang them up quickly before they become wrinkled.

Yellowing? Use Lemon and Baking Soda

White clothing has the unfortunate habit of attracting yellow stains, which come from sweating. If you want to keep your whites looking pristine, attack those stains with a paste mixture of lemon juice and baking soda. Leave the item to sit for an hour, then add to a washing cycle. The chemical reaction of the lemon juice and baking soda will lift the stain while the wash cycle will ensure the paste won’t stay on your clothes.

Homemade “Dryer Sheets”

If you’re out of dryer sheets, head to your kitchen for the next best thing: aluminum. By adding a pair of aluminum balls to your dryer, you’re guaranteeing that your clothes will be static-free. You can also use tennis balls to fluff up linens and towels. The best part about this hack? You can reuse them! Just remember to switch out the aluminum balls every month for best results.

Throw in the Towel

Do you have somewhere to be and not a lot of time to dry the outfit you want to wear? Throw in a dry bath towel along with your outfit for 15 to 20 minutes. The dry towel will absorb the moisture from your clothes, shortening the time it takes to dry your clothes, while also removing lint.

Chalk Up Grease Stains

Grease stains can stop you from wearing one of your favorite pieces, but with a piece of chalk, you can restore it. Simply rub the grease spot with a piece of white chalk and leave overnight to soak up the stain. Then, in the morning, wash and dry as normal.

Soak Your Delicates

Soaking your delicates is a great way to lift stains before hand washing, making the whole process a lot easier. Use cold water and soft detergent, leave your delicates to soak for about half an hour, making sure to never soak silk for more than 20 minutes, then come back and rinse once with white vinegar, then again with just water. Soaking beforehand washing is the best solution for your delicates because washing them in a machine can cause your pieces to lose shape and wear out quicker, so give it a try this weekend!

Lipstick Stains? Blot with White Bread

Late-night dates and parties often end with lipstick stains somewhere on your clothes. The best way to get rid of the stain is by using white bread before washing. Just tear the crust off of any piece of white bread, throw it away, roll the remainder of the bread into a ball, and blot gently at the stain. The bread will lift the stain, making it easier for you to wash it without the fear of getting that bold lipstick hue on every other clothing item in the wash.

Freeze Your Jeans. Seriously.

Jeans don’t need to be washed in order to keep them fresh; in fact, washing your jeans too much can wear them out, allow them to lose shape, and fade out the color. The solution is simple: stick the pair that you want to wear in the freezer overnight, then leave them to warm back up for an hour before wearing them. Your jeans will smell fresh and that dark color you love so much will stay intact.

Washing With Salt

If you’ve heard that salt can brighten up clothes, you’re right, but don’t add it to your wash cycle. Instead, shake your clothes in a container with dry table salt. This will brighten up dull colors by stripping the dirt prior to the washing cycle. If you want to make your clothes softer, pre-soak your clothes in salt water, letting it sit for an hour before throwing it in the washing machine.

Stick Shoelaces in the Dryer Door When Drying

Drying shoes can be annoying because of the sound they make in the machine. The best solution is to tie the shoelaces of both shoes together, then wedging the laces into the dryer door. Your shoes will still dry the same, but you won’t have to hear them thudding around while the machine is turned on.

Dry Sweaters and Delicates Flat

Delicates, sweaters, and other high-quality clothing should always be laid flat after washing. This is the best way to help your clothes keep their shape and will reduce shrinkage. When it comes to storing your clothes, look up how-to videos on how to store sweaters and delicates flat to reduce wrinkles; there are a variety of tutorials online that take less than five minutes to wash.

Clean Your Washing Machine

To keep your clothes clean, your washing machine is going to need some maintenance. Every month, pour a quart of white vinegar with a cup of baking soda into your machine, and, using hot water, run a cycle. This will keep your washing machine free of fungus that might be growing in the crevices that you can’t reach and will also keep the machine smelling clean. And don’t worry: your machine will not smell like vinegar once you’re done.

3 Steps to Take When Diagnosed with Mesothelioma

0

Mesothelioma is cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, a material that used to be used as insulation. As knowledge about asbestos has grown, methods of preventing exposure and training on handling asbestos have become more effective. Despite these improvements, sometimes exposure occurs, which can lead to mesothelioma and other diseases. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, your future may seem very bleak and you may not know how to proceed.

Educate Yourself About Your Options

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer, so becoming an expert on your condition is an important priority. Understanding what your options are for treatment and support are crucial to making the best decisions for you and your loved ones. There are varying symptoms of mesothelioma, and the type of symptoms depend on the form cancer takes. Usually, there is not a good prognosis, but it does not mean the disease has no therapies or treatments available. There are many mesothelioma support groups and resources on the Internet to help you on your way to selecting a treatment plan.

Select a Treatment Plan

Selecting the best course of treatment for yourself and getting the assistance you need is the most important thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones. Deciding how to alleviate the pain and symptoms is the first step of this plan. You can make the decision to fight the symptoms and pain without trying to seek a curative treatment. If you decide you want to fight the disease, there are some therapies and treatment options available. It can be difficult to find specialists that treat mesothelioma, so it may be necessary to relocate for treatment.

Seek Legal Help for Compensation

Regardless of your treatment plans, it is likely that your medical expenses are going to be expensive. Your health insurance may or may not cover all the expenses. Because mesothelioma is often a result of exposure to asbestos, you may be able to receive compensation for the losses you will incur. When seeking compensation, it is important to choose a lawyer that specializes in mesothelioma. A New Jersey mesothelioma law firm notes that for your legal case to successful, you will legal help, investigative and medical experts, and witnesses who can testify for you. Choosing the right lawyer to represent you is crucial.

Regardless of your situation and the options you choose to pursue, it is important to realize that you are not alone in your struggle. Finding the proper treatment and support for your circumstances is crucial.

What The Heck Is Wrong With My Feet?

0

Once we have mastered walking, people rarely give their feet much thought. You may wonder how they look in a new pair of shoes, but, mostly, they are a means of transportation. That is, until something goes wrong. If you have persistent problems with your feet, it may be time to see a doctor. Doctors who specialize in disorders of the feet are called podiatrists. Here are a few medical conditions that merit a visit to a podiatrist.

Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is a disorder that involves the body’s response to insulin. With Type 2 diabetes, insulin is being produced, but it is not properly used. This causes the body to produce even more insulin, which can lead to complications. Years of excessive blood sugar weakens the blood vessels. Problems with circulation start at the extremities. Without adequate blood flow, the body part stops functioning or dies. Peripheral neuropathy is another diabetic complication. It damages the nerves to the hands and feet.

Arthritis and Gout

Arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects the joints. It can occur in different parts of the body, sometimes simultaneously. Gout is a type of arthritis that forms uric acid crystals in the joints of the legs and feet. These conditions can cause swelling and severe pain, which makes it difficult to walk or sleep at night. There are medications prescribed to treat the actual condition, but a podiatrist may be able to help you manage and maintain daily activities.

Certain Abnormalities

Sometimes the problem is due to a more uncommon culprit. There are people who were born with special conditions that cause significant issues with the feet. For example, the shape of a person’s feet has a lot to do their ability to function properly. Significantly high arches or a lack thereof can make it extremely painful to walk or even stand. Severe bunions can also cause long-term issues with mobility because the bones often shift over time. In extreme cases, surgery may be required.

The human body operates like a complex machine, with all the different components working together. It is essential to take care of your feet just as you would any other part of the body. Also, health problems that primarily involve other areas can have a important effect on your feet. This is why you should inform your doctor about any changes or discomfort. Most doctors will tell you that early detection is important for any diagnosis. The key is to stay informed and be your own advocate.

 

Nurses Are Better Than Doctors

0
nurses are better than doctors

Doctors enjoy quite the reputation, don’t they? While it’s great to see the doctor, the truth is that nurses are some of the best medical care providers in any setting. So next time you’re at the doctor’s office, never underestimate a nurse!

Nurses Do Most of the Work

When someone needs care, chances are they see a nurse first. If something is starting to go wrong, it’s a nurse who’s going to notice. They can notify the doctor and are often the first responder in an emergency. They are also vital for many—more mundane—aspects of patient care, carrying out doctor’s order, administering medications, and tending to patient comfort. It’s a big job, and nurses do it all.

Nurses often know better the patients better than the doctors because they spend more time with the patients and are often first to gather information from them. They are the ones who advocate for you if the doctor recommends a medication you’re allergic to, or a procedure that your medical history puts you at risk for.

Nurses Have More Training

When you see a nurse, you’re working with a professional who has a well-rounded and comprehensive set of medical skills. In nursing school, students learn every aspect of medical care. They study emergency response. They learn to take and monitor vital signs. They learn how to detect changes in a patient that might mean that something’s wrong.

Nurses learn to make patients feel comfortable. They can react to your needs in a way that a physician often can’t. Nurse training comprehensively covers patient care, while physician training covers only certain aspects of health care. While doctors are certainly the experts, a nurse’s comprehensive knowledge is the perfect complement to their skillset.

Nurses Get Breaks

Nurses typically work eight-hour shifts, five days a week. They’re often able to accommodate their schedules to meet family obligations. Doctors, on the other hand, are often on call, which means that they regularly work twenty-four hour shifts. This doesn’t amount to much of a work-life balance, and doctors often suffer from intense chronic fatigue.

Nurses’ more regular schedule gives them time to handle personal affairs outside of work. What this means for patients is that nurses arrive at work refreshed and ready for the task at hand. So when nurses are working, they’re focused on providing great patient care, and less likely to make mistakes.
