SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “JWR ”. Our goal is to educate our readers, to help them to recognize emerging threats and to be better prepared for both disasters and negative societal trends. You can’t mitigate a risk if you haven’t first identified a risk. Today, we focus on concealed carry.
The Second Civil War Is Coming Into Focus
I often recommend getting the LBRY app . It is a viable un-censored alternative to YouTube. Once you have the app installed, I recommend this video by Tim Pool, one of the left-wingers that I consider quite credible: The Second Civil War Is Coming Into Focus, Reza Aslan Blames ALL Trump Supporters .

5G Technology Versus Weather Forecasting
“The National Academy of Sciences planned a two-day summer workshop to address a high-stakes question: Could the development of next generation 5G wireless undermine the accuracy of information gathered by weather satellites?
On July 16, less than a week before the scheduled start, the event was canceled because many of the “most knowledgeable about the topic” were reluctant to participate, according to a statement released by the National Academy of Sciences.
The science workshop was a casualty of a nasty dispute within the federal government that has pitted Federal Communications Commission (FCC) officials who say the 5G technology can be safely developed against NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials who say tighter restrictions are needed to prevent a serious threat to data collection by polar-orbiting satellites.”

Spike in Concealed Carry Classes Interest
Inquiries Into License To Carry Classes Up After Mass Shootings . Here is a quote:
“The number of mass shootings in the last week has prompted many to purchase guns and sign up for classes to earn their license to carry concealed weapons, according to the people who are doing training.
Inside the Laguna Shooting Center, experts offer everything from concealed carry classes to active shooter training. Protocols and practices outlined in the training manuals have changed as the types of mass shooting scenarios change.
Time and time again, we see violent images of horrific shootings. This weekend they came from in El Paso and then Dayton.
“The officers took out the guy as soon as they got there,” said Terry Wingert, an instructor with the Advanced Security Institute.
Wingert, a former police officer, has taught concealed carry classes for 40 years all across California. He teaches up to 300 classes a year, and when a mass shooting happens, inquiries go up 10-15%.”
Russia Admits Nuclear Reactor Blew Up During Missile Test
My old friend Terry in Idaho wrote to mention: Russia admits nuclear reactor blew up during missile test 250 miles from Moscow . A snippet:
“Russia confirmed that last week’s explosion involved a nuclear reactor during a failed missile test at a site just 250 miles from Moscow.
Five nuclear scientists were killed during the Aug. 8 explosion, which occurred during the launch of a missile that involved a small nuclear reactor, according to a report  by Bloomberg on Monday.
Russia’s state-run nuclear agency Rosatom had confirmed Saturday that the explosion killed several of its employees in a test of an ‘isotope power source in a liquid propulsion system.'”
