When Patty Tegeler looks out the window of her home overlooking the Appalachian Mountains in southwestern Virginia, she sees trouble on the horizon.

‘In an instant, anything can happen,’ she told Reuters.

‘And I firmly believe that you have to be prepared.’

Ms Tegeler is among a growing subculture of Americans who refer to themselves informally as ‘preppers.’

Some are driven by a fear of imminent societal collapse, others are worried about terrorism, and many have a vague concern that an escalating series of natural disasters is leading to some type of environmental cataclysm.

They are following in the footsteps of hippies in the 1960s who set up communes to separate themselves from what they saw as a materialistic society, and the survivalists in the 1990s who were hoping to escape the dictates of what they perceived as an increasingly secular and oppressive government.

Preppers, though are, worried about no government.

Ms Tegeler, 57, has turned her home in rural Virginia into a ‘survival center,’ complete with a large generator, portable heaters, water tanks, and a two-year supply of freeze-dried food that her sister recently gave her as a birthday present.

She says that in case of emergency, she could survive indefinitely in her home. And she thinks that emergency could come soon.

‘I think this economy is about to fall apart,’ she said.

A wide range of vendors market products to preppers, mainly online. They sell everything from water tanks to guns to survival skills.

Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck seems to preach preppers’ message when he tells listeners: ‘It’s never too late to prepare for the end of the world as we know it.’

‘Unfortunately, given the increasing complexity and fragility of our modern technological society, the chances of a societal collapse are increasing year after year,’ said author James Wesley Rawles, whose
Survival Blog is considered the guiding light of the prepper movement.

A former Army intelligence officer, Mr Rawles has written fiction and non-fiction books on end-of-civilization topics, including ‘How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It,’ which is also known as the preppers’ Bible

Emerging market: Best Prices Storable Foods in Texas has seen a surge in customers looking to fill their pantries and basements with nonperishable foods to ride out any fall of civilization

‘We could see a cascade of higher interest rates, margin calls, stock market collapses, bank runs, currency revaluations, mass street protests, and riots,’ he told Reuters.

‘The worst-case end result would be a Third World War, mass inflation, currency collapses, and long term power grid failures.’

—– HOW TO STOCK UP LIKE A PREPPER

You don’t have to own a fallout shelter and believe society is on the brink of collapse to store some extra supplies in case of a natural disaster or other emergency. Here are a few suggestions from the federal government:

….. Food – Three day supply of non-perishable food that requires no heat or refrigeration and little water to eat. Consider MREs (military rations), peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, canned ready-to-eat soup and energy bars. Be sure to include a can opener

….. Water – One gallon per person in your household per day. Keep enough for at least three days.

….. Light – Candles with matches and flashlights with fresh batteries
Communication – Battery-operated on hand-crank radio with NOAA weather radio function

….. Health – First aid kit as well as an prescription and over-the-counter medication you regularly use

….. Sanitation – Spare toilet paper, paper towels and plastic garbage bags

….. Documents – Be sure to keep important documents and family photos together in an easily-accessible place in case you need to leave home

A sense of ‘suffering and being afraid’ is usually at the root of this kind of thinking, according to Cathy Gutierrez, an expert on end-times beliefs at Sweet Briar College in Virginia. Such feelings are not unnatural in a time of economic recession and concerns about a growing national debt, she said.

‘With our current dependence on things from the electric grid to the Internet, things that people have absolutely no control over, there is a feeling that a collapse scenario can easily emerge, with a belief that the end is coming, and it is all out of the individual’s control,’ she told Reuters.

She compared the major technological developments of the past decade to the Industrial Revolution of the 1830s and 1840s, which led to the growth of the Millerites, the 19th-Century equivalent of the preppers.

Followers of charismatic preacher Joseph Miller sold everything and gathered in 1844 for what they believed would be the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Many of today’s preppers receive inspiration from the Internet, devouring information posted on websites like that run by attorney Michael T. Snider, who writes The Economic Collapse blog out of his home in northern Idaho.

‘Modern preppers are much different from the survivalists of the old days,’ he said.

‘You could be living next door to a prepper and never even know it. Many suburbanites are turning spare rooms into food pantries and are going for survival training on the weekends.’

Like other preppers, Mr Snider is worried about the end of a functioning US economy. He points out that tens of millions of Americans are on food stamps and that many U.S. children are living in poverty.

‘Most people have a gut feeling that something has gone terribly wrong, but that doesn’t mean that they understand what is happening,’ he said.

‘A lot of Americans sense that a massive economic storm is coming and they want to be prepared for it.’

So, assuming there is no collapse of society — which the preppers call ‘uncivilization’ — what is the future of the preppers?

Ms Gutierrez said that unlike the Millerites — or followers of radio preacher Harold Camping, who predicted the world would end last year — preppers are not setting a date for the coming destruction. The Mayan Calendar predicts doom this December.

‘The minute you set a date, you are courting disconfirmation,’ she said.

Ms Tegeler, who recalls being hit by tornadoes and floods in her southwestern Virginia home, said that none of her ‘survival center’ products will go to waste.

‘I think it’s silly not to be prepared," she said.

‘After all, anything can happen.’

Vera Lynn – "We’ll Meet Again"

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say "Hello"
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won’t be long
They’ll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

How do I go about getting all the computer certifications?

Question by nutaskeet: How do I go about getting all the computer certifications?
I would like to get all the certifications for computers and network engineering such as A+, Network+, Security+, CNA, CNE, MCP, MCSA, MCSE, CCNA, SCSA, SCNA, Linux+. I have looked into Virginia College, but the two year associates costs more than my 5 years I spent getting my four year degree. Can this be done on my own? Reading and taking tests? How will be the best way for me to get into this field without spending $ 35,000?

Best answer:

Answer by ilan
I’d search for local insitutions offering just to take the test, buy the books on ebay or amazon, study hard and just attend the test. Some places maty even offer courses as an optional alternative to going to a college for these certs, cert tests you can take with just paying for the exam, the lessons and studying and such you have to do on your own unless you want to include classes in your budget.

Yellow Pages or Google local places to take these certs, there should be many.

Best answer:

Answer by Natalie
Everything is good, but your SAT is a little low… at least get it to 1100? I suppose? Pitt is a good school, but they’re pretty lenient with scores. I have no worries that you’re definitely a candidate for Pitt! Good luck! I’m sure you’ll get in. Take that ACT and maybe you’ll be better than that.

Hopefully my insight helps.

QUALIFICATIONS & MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY is the area that I made little changes:

I am dedicated to deepening my calling to the ministry. I am equipped with a spiritual gift for building people, families and communities to further the commission of Christ. I have been practicing in the ministry for 9 years. For the past four years, I have been called to pastor “BLANK-BLANK Baptist Church of Taverville in “BLANK-BLANK”, North Carolina.

The most important needs include spirituality, economic improvement and social justice.

Other than this you might want to work on the use of “I” for the beginning of some sentences. Other than that your content is great you sound like a church will be lucky to have you! Good luck with the set up of your resume the latter post seems to be of more help as far as content.

All the best
