  • Uber Sabotages Dozens of Tech Companies with Plot to Monopolize News All Week

    Early Friday morning, Aereo, the tv streaming company that has battled long and hard against television networks to steal and re-resell programming to users, filed for bankruptcy. In the past, the company has captivated the attention of gossip-hungry readers everywhere. But after a week of world-class PR from the team at Uber, the global ride-sharing company, it’s possible that no one will even have the chance to snicker at Aereo’s demise. It all started when an Uber exec leaked to a Buzzfeed reporter at a private dinner that the company planned to run a $1 million smear campaign against…
  • Can Someone Please Explain Why a Realtor is Emailing me Photos of Bill Cosby’s House?

    I just received this bizarre email from Jeff Lichtenstein of Jeff Lichtenstein Realty in Palm Beach Florida. Apparently he is “Palm Beach Florida’s Golf Property Expert”:   This may be the strangest email I’ve ever gotten. Just look how it starts: Allegation after allegation has been coming out against Bill Cosby. With rumors that the lyrics to Fat Albert,“Gonna have a good time, Hey Hey Hey” may not be so innocent, NBC suspended his new television show, Netflix held off on his new special, and appearances on talk shows have been cancelled. So where is the…
  • Watch the NYPD Beat a Child Worse than Adrian Peterson

    Watch the video below. This video showed up on my Facebook timeline, earlier today, with the title begging for an end to police brutality. The disturbing video, which was recorded on the Myrtle & Broadway subway stop in Bushwick, immediately shows a fearful teen being cornered by a barbaric police officer. The officer quickly proceeds to attack him with his baton, severely striking him in the head as concerned onlookers’ verbal protest asked the officer to stop. “What are you doing?” asks the teen’s girlfriend, who tries to console her blood drenched boyfriend as he’s being…
  • The City That Was: Proust Wakes at The John Wickett Museum of Exotica

    P Segal - Bohemian Archivist
    20 Nov 2014 | 11:43 am
    In The City That Was, Bohemian Archivist P Segal tells a weekly story of what you all missed: the days when artists, writers, musicians, and unemployed visionaries were playing hard in the city’s streets and paying the rent working part time. The John Wickett Museum of Exotica A few months ago, I wrote about Playland, the amusement park where my childhood friends and I risked our futures on some wild rides. I ended that tale with the promise to write about one of the owners of Playland, John Wickett, and what he did after the park closed down. John Wickett was the black sheep son of a…

  • The Value of Human Relationships in a Grid-Down or Survival Event, by J.C.

    There is an often-overlooked type of disaster preparation, which everyone can make a regular part of their lives, that has the following characteristics: It costs nothing, except time. It can reap benefits every week, year in and year out. It comes in really handy in a grid-down or other scarce-resource event, and it helps the prepper out in unexpected ways and pays dividends when you least expect it. I am talking about human capital– the network of relationships we form in our community with those public servants and elected officials that may, in the future, have interactions with us…

    Hello Mr. Latimer, I noticed your response to M.E.’s question regarding Christianity and Self Defense on Friday, November 21st; while I thought you provided good information, I noticed that there was another article on Survivalblog called “The Survivalist Mindset: A Biblical Case for Preparedness and Self-Defense” by Brian D. that may also be helpful to readers.
