    Due to a plethora of reasons, there are at least ten countries which may not survive the next 20 years. Although the list concocted by Top Lists remains highly speculative, it is worth knowing which nations may become extinct.

    Laura Maikata’s baby boy was born at a gestational age of 23 weeks and weighed 600 grams at birth. His chances of survival were slim. His parents named Jonathan Amos, which means “God’s gift and carried by God.” Writing about her experience on her blog, Jonathan’s mother says this about getting the news tat doctors wanted to perform a C-section to remove the baby: I felt my skin prickle a bit, then I went white. We were delivering this baby. I looked at Steve. He looked very brave and very worried simultaneously. He walked over and held my hand. They...

    GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - About 5,500 more people could survive a major tsunami hitting the Pacific Northwest if they just walk a little faster to higher ground after roads are knocked out, a new study shows. The report published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at 73 communities along 700 miles of coastline in Oregon, Washington and Northern California. The area is considered most at risk from the next major earthquake and tsunami in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, where two plates of the Earth's crust come together miles off the coast. Emergency preparedness experts...
  • Secret Emails Reveal Clinton Knowingly Lied in Press Conference

    In newly released emails from when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton sent business-related emails to her staffers. Not only do these new emails prove that Ms. Clinton used her private email address to conduct business, which she vehemently denied two weeks ago, but it also proves that she lied about whether her employees used private email. The emails, obtained by the House committee investigating the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, show Mrs. Clinton emailing aides about whether she would survive the firestorm surrounding the attack and her perceived responsibility. "Did we survive the day?” she wrote to a...

    Treating patient ZERO required over 70 nurses, doctors and and assistants, rooms, machines such as one for kidney dialysis, which are now contaminated, at a cost to taxpayers of over $500,000. If the virus sweeps across the USA, it is obvious we can't spend those kinds of funds and resources on each patient. I envision martial law, directives to 'shelter in place' and no help at all from anyone. Aside from the normal worries, food, fuel for winter heat, protection from the sure-to-come hungry mobs, how do we survive this killer disease that sports a 70% mortality rate?

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 21/8/14 | Benny Toker, Ari Yashar
    In an exclusive Arutz Sheva interview on Thursday, Hof Ashkelon Regional Council chairman Yair Farjoun said that his region, which has been battered by rockets from the terror enclave of Gaza, cannot continue under the current status quo. "Out of 160 rockets, 60 fell in our territory - that's a serious blitz," Farjoun commented about the renewed rocket barrage, which began with a breach of the ceasefire on Tuesday around 4 p.m. The chairman continued "it's incredible to see how people live here by sheer miracles; beside a direct hit on a synagogue, rockets have landed just 200 meters (650...

    "What to Do Right Now if the Hard Times Have Begun and You are Not Prepared:There are two possible scenarios for the beginning of hard times: 1.Scenario One: You have some money and many of the local stores are still open for business. 2.Scenario Two: You don't have any money, or you do have some money but the stores are all closed. The overwhelming vast majority of people who have thought about the possibility of hard times are expecting the hard times to unfold according to the first scenario above. Therefore they have not done anything to prepare for any...

    Should you be so trusting and turn over your weapons you will be put on a "black list" in spite of everything. The enemy will always need hostages or forced laborers later on (read: "work slaves") and will gladly make use of the "black lists." You see once again that you cannot escape his net and had better die fighting.

    A dog had a miraculous escape after leaping off a roof and falling 50 feet on to a ledge at an apartment block. Kai, a two-year-old Shiba Inu, bounded over the side of the roof garden after his owner Tracy Aron took him up for his morning exercise. The pup had been jumping over the connected rooftops when he took a wrong turn and fell four floors on to a ledge below at the townhouse on the Upper West Side of New York. The protective fencing that usually surrounds the edge of the building had been removed due to renovation...

    The miracle dog who wagged his tail after surviving a gas chamber has found a permanent home. Daniel, a beagle mix named by animal control workers in Alabama after the biblical figure who survived the lion's den, joined four other rescued dogs at a home 1,000 miles away in New Jersey. ... Mr Dwyer said he and his family had two ‘meet-and-greets’ with Daniel before being approved for adoption, and the dog has become fast friends with the Nutley family's other four pooches. They have two dachshunds, a beagle mix and a pit bull mix. ‘By Thursday evening they were...

    American Thinker ^ | November 17, 2010 | By Monty Pelerin
    After the election two years ago, Time Magazine questioned whether the Elephant had become an extinct political animal. The most recent election raised questions as to whether the Donkey should be deemed an endangered species. Questioning either party's ability to survive is reasonable, and it helps sell magazines. However one or two elections are not sufficient to life-death assessments. Political parties are not immortal. They are born and eventually die. Survivability is dependent upon Darwinian adaptations rather than a genetically determined lifespan. Actuarial analyses can be reasonably attempted if they are based on longer periods. Enormous change in the American...

    Microsoft (MSFT) shares are falling today, even as the company announced it would increase its dividend by 23% and issue $6 billion in debt, debt on which it could pay as little as 3.73% interest. Apparently investors were less than excited by the news. Perhaps they're scared by Microsoft's mounting growth challenges and persistent inability to break into huge new businesses (XBox, excepted)--or maybe they wanted a higher dividend hike. Regardless, the shares are trading near their 52-week lows. But here's the only crucial question for Microsoft investors: Can the company last another 10 years? If so, the stock is...

    The Lockerbie bomber could survive for 10 years or longer, according to a cancer specialist who last year said he would be dead within three months of his release. Professor Karol Sikora, who assessed Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi for the Libyan authorities almost a year ago, told The Sunday Times it was "embarrassing" the bomber had outlived his three-month prognosis. Megrahi, 58, is the only person convicted of the 1988 bombing of a US Pan Am jumbo jet over Lockerbie, which left 270 dead. The Scottish government provoked outrage from the United States when it released him from prison in...

    It may seem to the world that Israel stands alone against a juggernaut of Muslim gangsters and will, in the end, cease to exist. If that happens, the Israelis will suffer a catastrophe reminiscent of the recent Hutu/Tutsi horror. The gangsters will, however, not be laughing for long as they will have lost the façade behind which they have hidden for decades. Their real war is against modernity, participatory government and the most basic women’s rights. That will become obvious. All those who failed to support Israel, particularly American Jews that let their jejune contempt for George Bush, morph into...

    Though the Milky Way is taking a good beating from nearby mini-galaxies that sometimes slam into it, our galaxy is not likely to de destroyed by this process as some scientists had predicted, a new study finds. Circling around the Milky Way are between 20 and 25 known satellite dwarf galaxies, which are smaller clumps of stars bound in orbit around the Milky Way by gravitational attraction. Some pessimists predicted the Milky Way was doomed to a grizzly death by dismemberment if enough of these galaxies collide with it. In fact, scientists think many satellite galaxies have already rammed into...

    An 11-year-old girl has cheated death with a dive worthy a movie stuntman - jumping out of a car moments before it plunged off the side of a cliff. Paige Dean was listening to music in the car at a campsite in Kinmel Bay near Rhyl, Denbighshire, when she accidentally knocked the handbrake off. Frantically, she repeatedly tried to pull up the lever as the car veered towards the cliff face but she was unable to lock the wheels. As the vehicle came within a few feet of the edge she managed to dive out of the car and roll...

    It must be bad: survival manuals are racing up the book charts. Ordinary folks are preparing for the worst Question: you are faced with a flu pandemic, economic extinction, climate disaster and what survivalists nickname TEOTWAWKI, the end of the world as we know it. What do you do? Answer: Go shopping — for survivalist literature. In the past few months sales of apocalypse-friendly books have rocketed — from new hunker-in-your-bunker thrillers to SAS manuals to Cormac McCarthy’s The Road — which indicates that ordinary folks are preparing for the worst. Not since the words DON’T PANIC appeared in large...
