Magnitude 3 – Salta, Argentina,:This incident provided via the GlobalIncidentMap.com incident monitoring system
Spent an enjoyable night this weekend re-reading J.L. Curtis’ second book, The Grey Man: Payback. Payback is a strong sophomore effort from Curtis. Jim addresses the criticism of The Grey Man: Vignettes with an eye to honing his writing craft, and as a result, his second book is an even more entertaining yarn than the …

There is only one way to end the financial tyranny of the Federal Reserve–abolish it, and put an end to the predatory pathologies of its policies.
Get a Job, Build a Real Career and Defy a Bewildering Economy(Kindle, $9.95)(print, $20)
Are you like me? Ever since my first summer job decades ago, I’ve been chasing financial security. Not win-the-lottery, Bill Gates riches (although it would be nice!), but simply a feeling of financial control. I want my financial worries to if not disappear at least be manageable and comprehensible.
And like most of you, the way I’ve moved toward my goal has always hinged not just on having a job but a career.
You don’t have to be a financial blogger to know that “having a job” and “having a career” do not mean the same thing today as they did when I first started swinging a hammer for a paycheck.
Even the basic concept “getting a job” has changed so radically that jobs–getting and keeping them, and the perceived lack of them–is the number one financial topic among friends, family and for that matter, complete strangers.
So I sat down and wrote this book: Get a Job, Build a Real Career and Defy a Bewildering Economy.
It details everything I’ve verified about employment and the economy, and lays out an action plan to get you employed.
I am proud of this book. It is the culmination of both my practical work experiences and my financial analysis, and it is a useful, practical, and clarifying read.
“I want to thank you for creating your book Get a Job, Build a Real Career and Defy a Bewildering Economy. It is rare to find a person with a mind like yours, who can take a holistic systems view of things without being captured by specific perspectives or agendas. Your contribution to humanity is much appreciated.”

We are rolling out our newest Wind & Solar Power Datalogger. A shunt between the battery and the power sources (wind turbines, solar panels, microhydro, your cousin on the exercycle), tell us the current being generated, and a voltage divider reads the voltage of the battery pack. From that we can calculate the watts being […]
Before I begin my review of the survival film “All Is Lost” (2013) Blu-ray (DVD version), I should say right up front that I have always been very intrigued by the idea of bugging-out and living on a yacht or sailboat. That being said, I don’t know any…
