  • Go, Team, Go: Join David Campos’ PrEP Rally This Thursday!

    Image from the San Francisco AIDS Foundation Okay, there won’t be a colour guard flag dancing to Total Eclipse of the Heart, nor will a bevvy of tight-sweatered cheerleaders rush in and form a pyramid while holding sparklers in their teeth.  And whereas you may not want to piant your face two-toned or scream your school slogan, I assure you this rally is definitely shout worthy. Why might you ask?  Well, although he’s still in a dead heat with David Chiu and simultaneously helping to defend  the rights of how people identify themselves,  Supervisor David Campos’ has started another…
  • A Quick, Cheap, Dirty Chocolate + Raspberry Brownie Recipe

    illyanna Maisonet - La Gorda
    17 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Sometimes I’m just not in the mood to gather an endless array of ingredients for my mise-en-place.  But the craving for chocolate can sometimes be unmanageable; the thought of gooey and dense fudge-y, chocolatey goodness being penetrated by my Buscemian canines on loop in my brain.  I like fruit, I like chocolate…but not together.  However, I had pillaged a raspberry bramble, and now I had to find a masculine match for these supple and dainty berries.  It was time to put my dislikes aside and make it happen…cap’t. And so, you have brownies with raspberries.  Oh,…

  • Multi-Species Rotational Grazing to Maximize Food and Income in a TEOTWAWKI World, by J.B.

    Hugh James Latimer
    17 Sep 2014 | 9:54 pm
    When new preppers begin planning their retreat or bug-out location they often first visualize an abundant garden, overflowing with fruit and vegetables, and focus their food production efforts on learning to garden. This is a wise approach indeed, but perhaps a disproportionate level of attention is paid solely to the labor-intensive task of annual gardening, which produces primarily carbohydrates, versus the less labor-intensive task of livestock grazing, which produces a perennial supply of primarily protein, fat, and pelts (if desired). Also, unlike most plants, protein derived from…
  • Letter: Ebola and Hajj

    Last year more than two million Muslims from all over the world performed hajj, or travel to Mecca, to participate in the Muslim rituals there. People are in close contact, often shoulder to shoulder and even stepping on each other, for several days as they go through several rituals of hajj. When the hajj is over, these people return to their homes in dozens of countries across the globe. This year 70,000 Nigerians will travel to Mecca, despite that country having more than a dozen confirmed cases of Ebola Zaire, with over 300 suspected of exposure to the deadly virus. Saudi Arabia insists…

    Ol’ Remus at WoodpileReport.com noted: “In the dull light of the woods, crisp new cammies are easier to spot than the somewhat faded cammies typical of military surplus. And Flecktarn may be slightly less visible than Woodland.” JWR Adds: But be careful not to buy any camouflage uniforms that have ever been starched, since that makes them reflective to infrared (IR.) And likewise, it is best to launder your field clothing with a mild detergent such as Woolite, since using a detergent with any “whitening” or “brightening” will make you stand out quite…
