If you ever encounter an aggressive person, keep these tips in mind:
Here is one of the 5

Instead of using words like ‘you’ try something on the lines of:
• There’s no need to stress, we’ll resolve it.
• I’m sorry, can I say something I believe is important?
• I understand this can be stressful or upsetting.
Doing this early on will make them more conscious of what they are doing. Consequently, it can help the person be more open to hearing whatever you have to say.

If you ever encounter an aggressive person, keep these tips in mind.

Posted by Glenn Meder – Inventor of the Survival Still

Today I’m proud to make a big announcement!
As you may know, I am the designer of the Survival Still emergency water distiller. I’m very proud of this product because I know it can help people. Over my years selling the Survival Still however, I’ve come to realize that the EDUCATION I provide on the topic of “water in an emergency” is just as important as my product itself.
People simply don’t know much about water. This fact doesn’t hurt us in daily life because we can just turn on the tap anytime and drink safe water. But when an emergency strikes, like what we are seeing now in Houston, a lack of knowledge about water can hurt you and your family.
Yes, there are a lot of articles online that tell you “how to treat water in an emergency,” but MANY of these articles provide bad information. The Red Cross and government sites do a decent job, but they basically only tell you what to do instead of providing real education.

I believe that this is a very important topic that everyone should know. So I’ve been working very hard over many months to come out with a comprehensive site that provides this education. I am proud to announce the launch of my new site EmergencyWater101.com.
EmergencyWater101.com is a new website designed to teach you how to provide your family with safe drinking water in an emergency! While some of the advice you find online about this subject is sketchy, and some of it is downright dangerous, ourgoal is to provide solid, scientifically sound education that you can count on.
So let me give you a tour of the new site…

  •  FIRST, on the home page you will see our detailed articles.
  •  SECOND, click here and you will see our “Basic Training” videos, which are free and excellent!
  • THIRD, we have a new course about “Storing Water for an Emergency”. This is the only “paid” course on our site right now. It’s normally $49.99, but for this launch we will be selling the course for $19.99.
  •  FOURTH, I have worked very hard to write a brand new ebook that explains everything you need to know about water in an emergency. To get this ebook for free, send an email to freebook@emergencywater101.com and one will automatically be sent to you.

On a final note, I ask you to please tell everyone you know about my new site. There are many people who NEED this information right now.
Thank you!
Glenn Meder
P.S. Some of you will remember that we launched EmergencyWater101.com a few years ago as a membership site, but we’ve completely changed it, and made most everything on it free.

a gallon of gasoline – produce 20 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2)

How can 6 pounds of gasoline create 19 pounds of Carbon dioxide?

It seems impossible that a gallon of gasoline, which weighs about 6.3 pounds, could produce 20 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) when burned. However, most of the weight of the CO2 doesn’t come from the gasoline itself, but the oxygen in the air.

When gasoline burns, the carbon and hydrogen separate. The hydrogen combines with oxygen to form water (H2O), and carbon combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide (CO2).

CO2 molecule with one carbon atom (atomic weight 12) and two oxygen atoms (atomic weight of 16 each)A carbon atom has a weight of 12, and each oxygen atom has a weight of 16, giving each single molecule of CO2 an atomic weight of 44 (12 from carbon and 32 from oxygen).

Therefore, to calculate the amount of CO2 produced from a gallon of gasoline, the weight of the carbon in the gasoline is multiplied by 44/12 or 3.7.

Since gasoline is about 87% carbon and 13% hydrogen by weight, the carbon in a gallon of gasoline weighs 5.5 pounds (6.3 lbs. x .87).

We can then multiply the weight of the carbon (5.5 pounds) by 3.7, which equals 20 pounds of CO2!
