The astronauts had planned to land on the Moon, but now they had a new mission: survival. Author Henry M. Holden delivers the gripping details of how three astronauts, with the help of NASA scientists on Earth, turned a story of disaster into one of triumph.

How You Survive Disaster

How You Survive Disaster

Naturally, if you can afford a shelter, that's great. This book gives a practical approach that you can use to remain safe when there may be impending or active chaos, death and disease for miles around you.

Our lives and our civilization are built on a complex, far reaching infrastructure that has been constructed over hundreds and thousands of years. For many of us in first world countries we live better than royalty did two hundred years ago. We take comfort and safety for granted. We have food in our homes and water coming out of our taps at will. We know that the nearby grocery store has everything we need to feed ourselves and our families. We can go to the local gas station whenever we want and fill up the tank in our car that we can drive virtually anywhere any time. That can all end for an entire region in the space of an afternoon. Regional disaster preparation is the focus of this book. If you haven't prepared to survive a disaster, then you and your family may starve or be at the mercy of others who are starving and will do whatever it takes to steal what you have so they can live. In a disaster of sufficient size and scope the government will not be able to help you. Disaster relief agencies will not be able to reach you. You will truly be one hundred percent on your own for a very long period of time. Your environment for tens or hundreds of miles around you could quickly be reduced to the infrastructure of the mid-1700s. Are you and your family ready to survive in that situation when thousands around you are dying? The difference between this book and many others is that it describes an incremental, low cost approach to becoming being prepared for a disaster of any kind. This is not a book that describes things like expensive underground shelters as the best solutions for surviving short or long term, local or regional disasters. Naturally, if you can afford a shelter, that's great. This book gives a practical approach that you can use to remain safe when there may be impending or active chaos, death and disease for miles around you.

The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook is the official companion volume to Live Earth concerts, 24 hours of nonstop concerts broadcast from around the world on July 7, 2007. The book presents 77 essential skills for stopping climate change—and for living through it. It is a fun, compelling, and sly deconstruction of a survival guide, think Boy Scout Handbook crossed with WorldChanging atop the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, that offers equal parts tongue-in-cheek suggestions, practical advice, factual information, and bluesky dreaming of ways to save the world. Each skill is presented on a spread featuring a bright, full-color instructional illustration, a brief introduction to the skill and its core ideas, a set of instructions, spin-off ideas, and scientific and environmental facts. The book also includes a resource guide that provides useful resources for the ecoconscious reader.

In Surviving In Schools in the 1990s, James R. Tompkins and Patricia L. Tompkins-McGill realize the importance and potential excellence of public schools. The authors confront the ever-increasing behavioral and emotional problems of students and offer strategic management ideas. Implementing milieu therapy, they discuss techniques which can help create a growth-enriching environment in the classroom: what rules to enforce, adult/child relationships, the power of groups and families and how to talk to students in times of trouble. Milieu therapy, long used with troubled youngsters in residential settings, and Life Space Interview are explored as significantly beneficial approaches in the public school classroom. The book includes reports from the experiences of educators who applied these practices while working with children from preschool age through adolescence in the public schools. The discussion lends to a deeper understanding of a nurturing classroom environment. Contents: The Importance of Public Schools; A Historical Overview of Milieu Therapy; Comparisons of Milieu Therapy Principles with Other Theoretical Approaches; Managing Children's Behavior; Powerful Milieu Ingredients, Basic Components of a Healthy Environment; Other Powerful Environmental Influences in Classrooms; Entry and Grouping in Schools; Milieu Ingredients Outside the Classroom; The Life Space Interview; The Therapeutic Relationship and the Education of Children; The Therapeutic Influence of Structure; Conclusion; Bibliography.

If a Natural Disaster, Terrorist Attack or Financial Meltdown were to happen... Are You Prepared to Survive? By Reading this Book you will learn Essential Skills and Gain Indispensable Knowledge for Maximizing Your Chances of Survival if a threat to your health and safety were to arise. This Book is a "Must Read" if Recent Events have: ● Made you feel more vulnerable and concerned about the safety and survival of you and your family; ● Caused you to place less trust in "the system" to protect you, and have made you want to take measures to ensure your own safety and survival; ● Shown you that food and supplies may not always be in stores when you need it, and that taking steps to ensure you will have the food, water and supplies you need to survive is crucial. If a severe pandemic caused the food supply chain to break down and food shortages to occur, or if a serious crisis forced you to stay indoors to protect yourself for a long period of time, would you have enough food and supplies stored in your home to survive? In This Book You Will Learn About: ● Creating a Stockpile of Food and Water to have in Your Home to Protect You from Shortages and Enable You to Stay Safe Indoors if necessary; ● The Optimal Equipment to have for Survival Preparedness; ● The Right Survival Supplies to keep in your home; ● Choosing Emergency Kits and Survival Kits for Survival Preparation. If a disaster or terrorist attack forced you to evacuate your home, would you have a safe place to go and essential supplies packed and ready, to ensure your safety and survival? This Book Shows How To: ● Create a Get-Away Pack (also called a Go Bag or Bug Out Bag), Stocked with Supplies that Would Be Essential for Your Survival (if you had to quickly leave your home in a crisis); ● Prepare an Alternate Survival Location to Provide You With a Safe Place to Go if You Ever Had to Evacuate Your Home. This book also reveals: ● How the systems and services we depend on could fail and place our lives in jeopardy; ● How to assess your survival strengths and weaknesses; ● What various levels of survival preparedness require and entail. The systems and services we all depend on for our health and survival are actually more fragile and vulnerable than many of us have believed. Most of us have insurance for our health, home and cars. Doesn't it make sense to also make preparations for ensuring our own survival? By reading this book you will learn how to make survival preparations to protect yourself and family in case the supplies and services that you depend on for your health and sustenance ever became unavailable for an extended period of time.
