#BlacklistedNews: Serial Killer on the Loose in Ohio & Big Media News Ignores the Story

Originally posted on News247-365:

How many times has this happened to you? It happens to me at least 3-4 times a day. I find HUGE breaking news stories, American news stories, on overseas websites, which feature full in-depth coverage, and discover to my distress that there is almost NO coverage of these very same events right here in our own country – where we are all obviously potentially affected by the events.  News websites in the UK do such an outstanding job of covering breaking news reports in the US, you might as well visit those sites first for breaking news, as the coverage on American websites is sometimes practically non-existent.

The state of journalism in the United States is just horrendous. And the news reports which get published have large glaring errors in them that can affect the opinions and attitudes of millions of people. A case in point was the erroneous…

I Don’t Believe Former WH Chef Walter Scheib Drowned on a Hiking Trail in Taos Ski Valley

Originally posted on News247-365:

The problem is, I lived in that region for years. I’m pretty familiar with the Taos Ski Valley. This morning when I saw the “official” cause of death for former Clinton / Bush era White House chef Walter Scheib, I had to sit for a minute: “Drowned”? Who “drowns” on a hiking trail, when there are no large bodies of water anywhere near?

So I went to Google Maps and looked up the Yerba Canyon hiking trail. And I scoured it. I could not locate a body of water anywhere where someone could drown. Scheib was a fit and robust age 61. Looking at photos of him, it seems highly unlikely that he would have fallen into a body of water while hiking and “drowned.”

But it is AWFULLY convenient for the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign that now one more truth teller, someone who might have had intimate knowledge…

Solar power is one of the most reliable forms of alternative energy. That is why it is at the top of most Prepper’s equipment purchase lists. The problem is; it remains at the top of our purchase list and is continually skipped over. This is because getting started in solar power can be confusing, and even more expensive. But, what if it was not that confusing, and depending on your needs, not that expensive… Would you take the plunge?

Solar Components – A Very Basic Overview

Before you start sketching your solar system, you must first understand the different components. Whether you are interested in an entire-home system, or only powering emergency lighting or a small radio, the principles are the same. The primary components for a…

How to Make a Battery That Lasts (Practically) Forever

dickens water battery

By Joshua Krause – Ready Nutrition  

When going off the grid, it’s safe to assume that most folks will be relying on solar panels for much of their electrical needs. However, a lack of sunlight can present a few problems for any would-be prepper. If only there was a cheap and simple way to supplement a solar panel array on those cloudy days.

Fortunately, there is such a way, and I’m willing to bet that most of you reading this have never heard of it (I hadn’t until recently). It’s called a Dickens Magnesium Battery after it’s inventor, Stephen Dickens; though the principles behind its function have been around for a very long time. If anything it may be more of a rediscovery, than a completely novel idea.

This device is also called a “Galvanic Cell,” which has been around since the late 1700’s, and possibly even…

Good Humor’s Iconic Ice Cream Trucks Are Making a Big Comeback

Originally posted on TIME:

Good Humor’s trucks will soon be hitting the road again after a decades-long hiatus, but the iconic ice cream brand’s fleet will be announcing its presence with tweets instead of clanging bells.

Nearly 40 years after sidelining its famous fleet, Good Humor is launching a “Welcome to Joyhood” sampling tour this summer that will see the classic version of the brand’s ice cream trucks making stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Boston, according to Ad Age. Customers looking for an ice cream fix will be able to summon the classic Good Humor trucks by tweeting @GoodHumor. And, in another modern twist, the throwback trucks will be blasting pop music and rock songs instead of ringing their iconic chime bells.

The brand, which is owned by consumer goods giant Unilever, sold its classic fleet of white trucks in 1976 and switched its focus to grocery store sales…
