    The prospect of a nuclear strike on Britain has never seemed more real, with Vladimir Putin and his henchmen threatening to obliterate London and other Western capitals in the latest escalation of the Ukraine war. On Sunday, Russian state TV aired threats by Andrey Gurulyov, a member of the State Duma. Taking particular issue with the UK, he called it ‘the root of all evil’ and suggested that it could be turned into a ‘Martian desert’ by Russian nukes. Putin himself warned that ‘this is not a bluff’, seemingly willing to risk precipitating Armageddon with bombs that would set the sky alight with the blaze of a thousand suns. Millions would be incinerated instantly and even for those who escape the initial blast or the ensuing radiation fallout, there would be little hope of survival. As firestorms rage, great clouds of toxic smoke would rise into the atmosphere, blocking the sun’s rays and causing a severe cooling of the planet. This would kill crops and cause a global famine that would last for many years. In a world where emaciated...
    A premature baby who was born weighing just one pound and was given a 50 per cent chance of survival has beat the odds and finally left the hospital - after spending more than 500 days in the ICU fighting for her life. Tyler Robinson's now-18-month-old daughter, Autumn, from Chicago, Illinois, was born four months early - at just 23 weeks - after Tyler suffered from a uterine rupture, which resulted in the newborn developing many complications. Autumn was born with a chronic lung disease called bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and weighed only 1.1 pounds - and doctors weren't sure if she was going to make it.

    Two things have been equally true about the Pac-12 Networks since their launch a decade ago: The business model was all wrong; but the production quality was all right. The former has been examined relentlessly (here and elsewhere) and helped set the stage for the conference’s current predicament. The latter is our topic for today. The equipment powering the Pac-12’s wholly-owned media platforms (both linear and digital) forms the backbone of a cutting-edge technological infrastructure that’s lauded throughout the sports media industry and could prove beneficial during the ongoing media rights negotiations that will make or break its future. “The Pac-12 has everything you could want in a production facility and can produce all the games for much less than the media companies usually pay,” said a TV sports production veteran who asked not to be identified. In other words: Bargaining chips. Over the past 26 days, the Hotline has attempted to outline all possible end-games for the Pac-12, from extinction to survival, so readers are not surprised by any outcome. We have assessed expansion candidates from the Mountain West,...
    BRAIN tumours are on the rise in England with a 50 per cent surge in cases since 2001. In 2019, 9,960 people were diagnosed with the devastating cancers compared to 6,577 18 years earlier. 1Shocking figures reveal that brain tumour cases have doubled in England since 2001 as medics struggle to boost survival ratesCredit: Getty The Brain Tumour Charity said the ageing population means more people are at risk and high-tech scans are detecting more cases. But medics are struggling to boost survival rates and 90 per cent of patients die within five years. Brain tumours are a top cause of cancer death in under-40s and The Wanted singer Tom Parker died of the disease in March. Four in 10 cases don’t get caught until someone is in A&E, by which time survival chances are slim.Dr David Jenkinson, chief scientific officer at the charity, said: “These worrying figures show just how urgently we need to act on this devastating and life-changing disease.

    The Pac-12 Conference has existed, in some form or another, for 107 years. After the thunderous news Thursday that USC and UCLA are seeking membership in the Big Ten starting in 2024, the future of the conference is very much in doubt. What’s next for the shattered Pac-12, which was caught completely off guard by the planned departures of the schools in its largest media market and its most fertile recruiting ground? Without an anchor in Southern California, the league is a shell of its former self. Can it exist as a 10-school entity? Should it expand? Is a merger possible? First, let’s be clear: When it comes to conference realignment, nothing is done until it’s done — and sometimes not even then. USC and UCLA have yet to utter a public peep; nor has the Big Ten. But if we presume the move becomes official in the next 24 hours, there are a slew of scenarios to consider: — Will Oregon and Washington attempt to join the Big Ten, as well? The success of their football teams makes the...
    CANCER patients should be prescribed fitness classes and workouts to boost their survival, doctors say. Patients should try to do both muscle strengthening work and cardio exercises such as swimming - and even simple chores like gardening or carrying heavy shopping could improve health. 1Even simple physical chores like gardening could keep people fit to fight cancer, scientists sayCredit: Alamy Regular exercise toughens people up, stops them feeling as tired and slashes hospital stays after surgery. Scientists at the American Society of Clinical Oncology said: “Exercise during active treatment has clear benefits for patients with cancer and oncologists should recommend it.” Their research found breaking a sweat is proven to help people with common breast, prostate, lung and bowel cancers to bounce back. A University of Texas study added that people with cancer exercise twice as much if their doctor advises them to - and they stay healthier and happier after treatment.

    Dovzhyk, Ukraine (CNN)Mykola Kulichenko struggles to recount a tale he shouldn't be alive to tell. But this Ukrainian man believes he was allowed to cheat death so he might speak for all those who cannot. By the side of a remote road in the northern Chernihiv region of Ukraine, Mykola shows the unmarked grave in which he and his two brothers were buried three-and-a-half weeks after the war began, in land seized by Russian forces. All three had been shot; he was the only one to survive. "It's like being resurrected," Mykola, 33, told CNN. Ukraine brother survives shootingUntil March 18, life for the Kulichenko family had changed little despite the Russians occupying their village of Dovzhyk since the start of the war. Then, when a Russian column was bombed, Russian soldiers fanned out looking for those responsible. They arrived at the wood-plank house where Mykola lived with his two brothers, Yevhen and Dmytro along with their sister, Iryna -- who still hasn't forgiven herself for not being home that day. Three soldiers told the brothers to kneel in...
    DO NOT FLINCH WE must not falter in the face of Russia’s insane nuclear threats. Quite the opposite. The survival of Ukraine is paramount for the civilised world. Putin is full of bluster, issuing chilling ultimatums to Britain and ordering his malevolent aides and deranged TV pundits to parrot them. It is all a ploy. 2We must not falter in the face of Vladimir Putin's insane nuclear threats 2Defence Secretary Ben Wallace predicts that Putin's next monstrous lie will be a declaration of war against imaginary Nazis in Nato And, mortified by his shambolic forces’ failure to take Ukraine at all — let alone in days — he is preparing a monstrous new lie to tell his gullible pe­ople. Defence Secretary Ben Wallace predicts that will be a declaration of war against imaginary Nazis in Nato, justifying a long conflict and the call-up of untrained Russian teenagers . . . cannon fodder for his unhinged ambitions. Some fear that Putin WILL trigger nuclear war, that he cares nothing now for Russian lives, let alone ours. There’s a slim chance...
    NORWICH pulled off a shock win against fellow relegation candidates Burnley on Sunday. The Canaries got off to a flying start as Pierre Lees-Melou's deflected strike snuck past Nick Pope and into the bottom corner. 3Pope could not deal with Lees-Melou's deflected strikeCredit: Reuters 3The ball deflected off BrownhillCredit: Getty Burnley dug deep to try and turn things around, but were not clinical in front of the target. Maxwel Cornet had a golden opportunity to level the score with 25 minutes to go, but his effort from close range flew past the post.

    CANCER survival rates in Britain will be the best in Europe after Health Secretary Sajid Javid declared war on the disease. He will reveal details today of a radical ten-year plan to speed up detection and boost outcomes. 1Cancer survival rates in Britain will be the best in Europe, Sajid Javid pledges Ministers want to harness scientific advances, such as artificial intelligence and mRNA vaccines. Half of all Brits will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. But despite improvements in survival over recent decades, experts fear progress has stalled because of the pandemic. It comes as the NHS faces a mammoth backlog of cases, with nearly 50,000 fewer referrals than expected since the Covid crisis. Speaking at the Francis Crick Institute today, Mr Javid will say: “Let this be the day where we declare a national war on cancer. “We have published the call for evidence for a new ten-year Cancer Plan for England, a searching new vision for how we will lead the world in cancer care. “This plan will show how we are learning the...
    Cross added that there absolutely is a war on democracy, and liberals and progressives need to suit up and pick a weapon for the forthcoming fight. “It is a war,” Cross insisted. “It is indeed a war, and I have to say they have won some battles, Jasmine, but we have to keep our eye on the war and everybody needs to pick up a weapon and get involved because this is for the safety and lasting of the country.” Cross in November made headlines after saying that some Republican members of Congress were "white supremacists." And last May, she declared it was "time to burn it all down" when it came to fighting police brutality and the criminal justice system. "It is a war.

    A 31-year-old father-of-two was taken off the donor list for a heart transplant at a Boston hospital because he is unvaccinated, even though he is unable to leave the hospital due to his poor condition until he gets a new heart, his family said.  DJ Ferguson has a hereditary heart condition that causes his lungs and heart to fill with blood and fluid without intervention from intravenous medication.  'At this point DJ is unable to leave the hospital until he gets the heart surgery he needs. Without the surgery his lungs and heart will continue to fill up with blood and fluid(on top of everything else that's going on),' said Ferguson's wife, Heather Dawson, on Facebook.  Boston Brigham and Women's Hospital removed Ferguson from their donor list because has not gotten the COVID-19 vaccine - one of many conditions alongside smoking and alcohol use that can make patients ineligible for a transplant - and said in a statement that their aim is to 'create both the best chance for successful operation and also the patient’s survival after transplantation.'

    Iron is essential for the evolution of complex life on Earth and for the possibility of survival in other worlds Researchers have discovered the importance of iron in the development of complex life on Earth, which may also indicate the possibility of complex life on other planets. Iron is an essential nutrient for the growth and prosperity of almost all living things. The amount of iron in the Earth’s crust is controlled by the conditions under which the planet formed, and this has serious consequences for how life formed. Now, researchers at the University of Oxford have discovered a mechanism by which iron influences the evolution of complex life forms, which could be used to determine how likely (or not) life forms are on other planets. This study was recently published in the journal PNAS. The initial amount of iron in the Earth’s rocks is “adjusted by the accumulation conditions of the planets, in which the Earth’s mineral center is separated from the crust”, said John Wade, associate professor and professor of planetary materials at the University of Oxford. “Life...
    Cannabis shops across the San Francisco Bay Area have been thrown into dire straits as gangs of thieves broke into more than 15 shops throughout November during the series of 'smash-and-grab' robberies plaguing California.  Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong told reporters that 'hundreds' of vehicles targeted marijuana stores in Oakland last month, firing 175 shots and stealing about $5 million worth of products.  Alphonso 'Tucky' Blunt, owner of Blunts and Moore, told MJBizDaily that his store lost about $25,000 during a November 22 raid, where more than a dozen burglars ransacked the store.  'I know 25 or so businesses that got hit … and out of all those, the percentage I know that told me that they may not be able to reopen is about 50 percent. That's scary, Blunt said.  'I was safer, and had more money, (selling) on the street, illegally.'

    A blurry image taken from a police helicopter has given Anthony 'AJ' Elfalak's family all the proof they need that he was being cared for by an angel while lost in the bush. With her three-year-old nuzzling into her neck and holding onto her tightly, Kelly Elfalak revealed she had no doubt that the 'power of prayer' kept AJ safe. Little AJ was found on September 6 after three days in inhospitable terrain behind his family home in Putty, 150km northwest of Sydney, with nothing more than some scratches, ant bites and nappy rash. His devout Coptic Orthodox Christian family believe that an angel can be seen hidden in the rocks to his left when the NSW Police helicopter zeroed in on him. 'If you saw the picture of AJ in the creek, you can see the angel next to him,' Ms Elfalak said.    A blurry image taken from a police helicopter has given Anthony 'AJ' Elfalak's family all the proof they need that he was being cared for by an angel while lost in the bush With...
    Specialist bush survival experts are convinced 'miracle boy' AJ Elfalak coped so well while lost in bushland for three cold nights because his autism kept him calm. As family and friends celebrated the three-year-old boy's incredible rescue in the NSW Hunter Valley, police have come to understand how AJ, three, really survived in rugged bushland.  Wild conspiracy theories continue to circulate on social media that AJ's disappearance was staged, and that a child could not survive alone with food or water in such rugged terrain - where overnight temperatures were as low as two degrees. But detectives on Strike Force Jaylang - which was set up to investigate the circumstances of the toddler's disappearance - said AJ's injuries and condition when he was found were all consistent with him being in the bush the entire time.  Police have worked with bush survival experts to develop a full picture of AJ's time away from home - and they suggest his autism actually largely helped him maintain a calm state of mind. 'The reality is he didn't know he was lost… so he wasn't...

    Astronomers have identified a new habitable planet called the “Hot Ocean” planets — warmer planets covered by oceans and hydrogen-rich atmospheres — which could be a significant improvement in the search for life elsewhere. Credit: Amanda Smith, University of Cambridge Astronomers have identified a completely different type of exoplanet from our group, but it can support life, which greatly speeds up the search for life outside our solar system. Astronomers have been looking elsewhere for planets with the same size, mass, temperature and composition as the Earth’s atmosphere. However, astronomers at the University of Cambridge believe there are more promising opportunities. Researchers have discovered a new class of planets called “Hyson” planets – warmer planets covered by oceans and hydrogen-rich atmospheres – that are more common than Earth-like planets. The researchers say the results have been reported Journal of AstrophysicsThis could mean that in the next two or three years it will be possible to locate key fingerprints outside our solar system.

    Family members hold vigil for the missing victims of Surfside condo collapse in Surfside, Florida, United States, on June 29, 2021. Tayfun Coskun/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images Close to 150 people are still missing after a Florida condo building collapsed.  Survivalists say while there should still be hope, the likelihood of survival is slim.  Experts say the most important thing to survive may be mindset and a will to live.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 786 into law, which requires all telecommunicators in the state to be trained in telecommunicator CPR (T-CPR). The American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all, has led the effort to expand T-CPR training for instances of out of-hospital cardiac arrest. More than 350,000 Americans experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year. Only about 1 in 10 victims survives this dramatic event. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival. READ MORE: Climate Change Activists Arrested Outside Houston Home Of Senator Ted Cruz Telecommunicators, including dispatchers and emergency call takers, are the true first responders and a critical link in the cardiac arrest chain of survival. Working with the 9-1-1 caller, telecommunicators have the first opportunity to identify a victim in cardiac arrest and provide initial care by delivering CPR instructions while quickly dispatching emergency medical services. “A telecommunicator who effectively engages the caller, identifies the cardiac arrest, and coaches effective CPR could double or triple the...
    Giving critically ill Covid patients aspirin does not boost their odds of surviving the disease, a major study revealed today.  Oxford University scientists hoped the cheap blood-thinner would work because it cuts the risk of blood clots — a common and deadly complication of the virus.  But results from the RECOVERY trial – one of the world's leading coronavirus drug studies – have shot down the theory.    Professor Peter Horby, one of the main researchers, also said there was no evidence that an infected patient was less likely to need a ventilator after taking aspirin.  Professor Horby, an infectious diseases expert at Oxford, claimed there was a 'small increase' in the likelihood of patients being discharged alive. But he said that 'this does not seem to be sufficient to justify its widespread use for patients hospitalised with Covid'. The RECOVERY trial has been one of the most successful for finding treatments and proved that dexamethasone cuts the risk of death. The £5 steroid is now credited for saving hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide.  The RECOVERY trial hoped the...
    Former President Donald Trump will portray next year's midterm elections as a battle for the survival of America when he makes his first speech in months on Saturday night.

    The fate of at least two, and possibly three, unprofitable nuclear plants in Illinois are hanging in the balance after the state’s Democratic Legislature adjourned this week without an agreement on subsidizing the reactors to keep them alive. The Legislature is expected to return later this month to close the deal, as Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, legislators, environmental groups, and labor unions are motivated to preserve thousands of jobs associated with the plants and to maintain Illinois’ status as the largest producer of nuclear power, a central element of the state’s clean energy ambitions. WYOMING'S BET ON SMALL NUCLEAR REACTORS COULD LAUNCH A NEW INDUSTRY “What’s happening in Illinois is very unique. It’s not often you see legislative sessions extended, which signals just how important this bill is for the state, governor, and energy champions across the state,” said Christine Csizmadia, director of state governmental affairs and advocacy at the Nuclear Energy Institute. But the impasse underscores the broader challenges facing large traditional light-water nuclear power plants first built in the 1950s that have struggled to stay economically competitive compared...

    Engaging an Iranian Regime in Survival Mode, the U.S. Must Stay Firm
    By Josef Federman | Associated Press JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was fighting for his political survival on Tuesday as the country held its fourth parliamentary election in two years. The election is widely seen as a referendum on Netanyahu’s divisive rule, and once again, opinion polls were forecasting an extremely tight race. Exit polls were scheduled to be released by Israel’s three major TV stations after the end of voting at 10 p.m. (2000 GMT), but it could be several days before the true outcome of the race is known. The three-month campaign was largely devoid of substantive issues and focused heavily on Netanyahu’s personality and whether he should remain in office. In contrast to past elections where he faced off against a clear rival, this time a diverse array of parties is trying to topple him, having little in common beyond their shared animosity toward him. “Vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,” Netanyahu said after casting his ballot in Jerusalem, his wife, Sara, at his side. Netanyahu, 71, who even after 12 years in office...

    WHEN Perry Power was 10-years-old he was sexually abused by his own granddad – he suffered in silence for years, but now millions know his story. That's because Perry has taken the astonishingly brave step of speaking about his nightmare ordeal on TikTok after enduring years of depression and suicidal thoughts. 8Perry Power was just a 10-year-old child when he was sexually abused by his grandfatherCredit: Supplied At the time of his abuse, he was told to stay silent. He thought that was the best thing to do – to avoid what he perceived to be the double shame of firstly being sexually abused, and secondly being a male victim. Sexual abuse affected many people in his family; his grandfather, aunt, cousin and dad were all abused too and did not confront their story. But now the actor, 26, who recently moved from Portsmouth to Guildford, Surrey, is on a mission to break that deadly chain of silence.  He has posted numerous TikTok videos detailing his journey to recovery and smashing the taboo around sexual violence...
    Romain grosjean had a before and after the serious accident he suffered at the Bahrain GP, ​​which would ultimately be his last race in Formula 1. The former Haas driver, already in the Dayle Coyne of the IndyCar (at least for road and non-oval circuits) he feels very lucky to have come out of that hell more or less unscathed, but beyond the scare, this accident will serve to improve safety measures. This has been determined by the report published by the FIA ​​after almost three months of investigations, which concludes, from the outset, that there were only two drivers directly involved although others were circumstantially. And that it was because of a Grosjean mistake: 1.

    (CNN)Winter storms have battered the US this week, and many animals are struggling in the cold. The cold-blooded alligator, though, is getting through the week with an unusual method of survival.This week, an employee at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation posted photos of alligators frozen in water. A grim scene, maybe -- if their snouts weren't sticking out.It's called "icing," and it's how alligators breathe when submerged in freezing temperatures. While they may look dead in photos, they're surviving -- and in the middle of a fight of their lives.Read MoreWhat is 'icing'? The "icing" response is tied to brumation, which is basically the reptile version of a mammal's hibernation. By lowering their metabolic rates, becoming lethargic and keeping their snouts above water, alligators are able to survive brief periods of freezing weather.As cold-blooded reptiles, alligators rely on their external environments for temperature regulation, which means cold weather is not conducive to their survival. David Arbour, with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, posted photos of alligators icing to his Facebook page. An alligator 'ices' at Red Slough Wildlife...
    Sony Playstation 5 : lately we are witnessing certain rebirth of the predominant graphic style in the games of the first PlayStation: We have seen it above all with independent developments related to terror, which has even led indie authors to publish compilations of the genre, and now it is the turn of a commercial project that will launch soon on PC.

Experts from Germany found, in studies of mice, that sperm carrying a genetic factor called a 't-haplotype' are able to move forwards faster towards their target. Meanwhile, their competition without this group of genes are less effective at progressing, and are more likely to end up meandering around aimlessly in circles. The researchers linked the difference in motility (the ability to move) to a protein called RAC1, which transfers signals from outside the sperm cells to the inside. In white blood cells and cancer cells, RAC1 is known to play a role in directing its host cells to others that are exuding chemical signals. Given this, and the findings of the new study, it is possible that the protein plays a similar role in sperm cells, helping them find their way to their egg target. The findings may even shed new light on the reasons behind certain forms of male infertility, raising the possibility for future treatments.   ...
    Jane's Carousel in New York City, closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Justin Heiman/Getty My son was born in the early months of the pandemic. In his first year, he experienced the loss of his great-grandmother, plus the larger-scale loss of living through the death of more than 400,000 Americans. There are two ways to tell him this story. One is: We failed you. But another is: We survived. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. My grandmother was born during the last great pandemic. When I ask her what her mother told her about giving birth during the Spanish flu, she cannot remember. After I give birth, a century after my grandmother was born, I want to know what strength I may have inherited from her mother. But my grandmother cannot tell me the story.  How we tell a story matters. I work on telling the version of my story that makes it possible to move forward. I work on saying: I gave birth during a pandemic and showed myself how strong I am. I avoid saying...
    A 17-year-old boy who went missing while snowmobiling in Canada has been hailed for his survival skills after he built a snow cave to survive. The British Columbia teen, whose name has not been released, became lost around 6.15pm on Saturday when he was separated from his group near Spanish Lake. The quick-thinking survivor parked his sled in a visible area near a wooded area – while his family and friends returned to the parking lot and called the South Cariboo Search and Rescue, who notified the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  'This young man did everything right after things went wrong,' the South Cariboo SAR said on Facebook.

    Harvey Weinstein's former assistant Zelda Perkins has claimed her 'lack of ambition' in the film industry and a 'mixture of humour and aggression' protected her from ending up like the predator's other victims. Ms Perkins worked for the disgraced movie mogul at his London office in her early twenties. She signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in 1998 after claiming the producer sexually harassed her and tried to rape one of her colleagues, Rowena Chiu, in Italy.  Ms Perkins said she 'naively' thought that reporting his alleged abuse to the firm's family-friendly parent company Disney would result in his dismissal, but instead was warned against speaking out.  Both women quit their jobs after signing agreements forbidding them to discuss the incident with anyone, including their own family. Ms Perkins bravely breached the agreement to speak out in 2017.  Speaking to the Guardian, Ms Perkins said finally going public after staying silent for two decades has helped her 'find herself'.

Broader range of science should advise on COVID The public needs a science-based answer to the question: how safe is outside dining under a well-ventilated canopy with propane heaters? And is it safer than the alternative, which for most people is to dine indoors with their family and friends? The Governor and county health officers should realize that the public stopped listening and lost faith in their credibility months ago. The Governor should be working with the Legislature, county supervisors, mayors and the public to create a plan that draws upon the expertise of the broader medical and scientific community to determine which activities that the public values can be done safely at minimal risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus. The county health officer’s role is to advise our elected representatives and not to issue arbitrary mandates. Nine months into the COVID pandemic a fear-based response that is not data-driven is unacceptable. Joseph Nilsen Livermore Officials should have skin in lockdown game Here we go...

    A new report finds that Illinois has one of the best lung cancer survival rates in the nation. Data from the annual “State of Lung Cancer” report from the American Lung Association shows the state ranks tenth when it comes to the five-year survival rate of lung cancer patients, with around 25 percent living past that mark. “One factor in that is that we are able to diagnose lung cancer earlier, around stage one, and that helps with the prognosis a lot of times,” said Kristina Hamilton, advocacy director with the American Lung Association of Illinois and Iowa. Digging deeper into the numbers brought both good news and bad news for the state. “Illinois specifically ranked 35th in lung cancer rates in the country,” Hamilton said, “but there's a notable outlier in that black lung cancer patients are least likely to receive surgical treatment.” This is the first time the report has examined the lung cancer data specifically among racial and ethnic groups at the state level. Explanations for the disparity are varied. “There...
    One of California's first COVID-19 patients who was given a one percent chance of survival when he spent 64 days in the hospital last spring has opened up about his harrowing battle with the virus to convince others to take it seriously.    Gregg Garfield, 53, became infected with coronavirus while on a ski trip with friends in Italy's Dolomite Mountains in February, as the pandemic exploded around the world. He landed in the hospital days after he returned home to Southern California and was quickly hooked up to a ventilator, where he remained for the next month.   At the time there were few proven remedies for the virus as doctors were just beginning to understand the toll it could take on the human body.  As Garfield's condition deteriorated, doctors feared they wouldn't be able to save him.   Now nine months later, Garfield is back home and preparing to hit the slopes again after making a miraculous recovery.   He recounted his grueling experience in an interview with People this week, calling himself 'the luckiest man alive'.

    They go by a few names – emergency bag, go-bag, bugout bag, survival kit, and so on – but whatever name you call an emergency survival bag, I call owning one a good idea. In the event of an emergency that necessitates you fleeing your home, having a bugout bag close at hand could be the difference between a few days of serious unpleasantness and a few days where you have the food, water, basic first aid, and shelter you need to get through OK. (And not to hammer too hard on this, but we could even be talking life or death, so if you’re on the fence about buying one… y’know….) Bugout bags are essential when a sudden disaster strikes, and especially one that cripples local emergency response capabilities, like wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes and the like. At other times, as with hurricanes, for example, you see the trouble coming but don’t know how bad it might be. Then there are also those emergencies that only affect a few, like a house fire, but that might nonetheless leave you in...
