Are you Prepared for an Earthquake?


Many Many Years ago when I was living near Radcliff KY, I was sitting in my room watching, and all of a sudden it

US Earthquake Zones

US Earthquake Zones

appeared as if the wall took a deep breath. It came toward me, and then went back. First. I thought I was having a mental event, but soon other people started making comments.  There as an Earthquake several miles away in Louisville, KY.  Several years ago while I was in Charleston the floor shook, sure enough there was an earthquake in Summervile, SC.   Some on the East coast will remember how an Earthquake in Virginia was felt along the East Coast. At the time I was on the 5th floor of a building in downtown Charleston, SC..and we had no clue what was happening.

Did you know that there’s a 100 percent chance of an earthquake today. Though millions of persons may never experience an earthquake, they are very common occurrences on our planet. So today — somewhere on the planer — an earthquake will occur. Perhaps you will be affected.

Earthquakes vary in size and magnitude. It may be so light that only sensitive measuring instruments will perceive its motion; it may be strong enough to shake houses, rattle windows, and displace small objects; or it may be sufficiently strong to cause property severe damage, death, and maybe injuries

It is estimated that about 700 shocks each year have this capability when centered in a populated area. But fortunately, most of these potentially destructive earthquakes center in underpopulated areas far from civilization.

Since a major portion of the world’s earthquakes each year center around the rim of the Pacific Ocean (Ring of Fire), referred to by seismologists as the circum-Pacific belt, this is the most probable location for today’s earthquake. But it could hit any location, because no region is entirely free of earthquakes.

Stating that an earthquake is going to occur today is not really “predicting earthquakes”. To date, the exact time, and location or magnitude cannot be predicted. But anyone, on any day, could make this statement and it would be true. This is because several million earthquakes occur annually; thereby, thousands occur each day, although most are too small to be located. The problem, however, is in pinpointing the area where a strong shock will center and when it will occur.

Earthquake prediction may some day become a reality, but only after much more is learned about earthquakes.

Pepper Spray for the Big Black Guy

Filed under: Self Defense Infomation — peppereyes @ 10:18
Tags: ,

OK, I bet  some of you thought this was an article about how someone used pepper spray on  big black guy..well it isn’t.  See PepperSpray2despite what the media would like you to think not all big black guys are menacing threats to you. In face remember just last week North Carolina police pepper sprayed a black teen for entering his own home because the neighbors saw a black man entering into the house.  Yes, I’m aware of the economically challenged thug wannabes ..but for each one of them there are 10 Bill Cosbys,  Morgan Freeman, Will Smith, Robert Johnson,  or Russell Simmons.   Think about this Bill Cosby is a big black guy..and people don’t fear him..why?  Yet I can’t tell you how many people see me and think..he’s a big black guy..I need to be careful.  I can’t tell you how many people cross the street or give me suspicious looks if I’m out walking downtown.  See, in every population and every segment of society they are people who are either just plain rotten or lack morals. However, big black guys don’t have a monopoly on this.  I’m also aware of the media perception; I watch the nightly news as well, so I know the ingrained perception.  If you do a poll of most people and ask them “What demographic commits the most crimes?”  I’m sure a large number of people will quickly say “blacks”. But, this just a perception as that is the face you see on the news.   In 2011 6.58 million crimes were committed by white people, and only 2.7 by black people. Do a search for all the serial killers or domestic terrorist in the United States. Now how many of them are big black guys?  If any of those people who committed these crimes came near you, you would not give them the same mental review as you would a big black guy.  Remember the BTK Killer “Dennis Rader” was perceived to be a nice guy and a leader in his church as well as leader of a Cub Scout group.

Justified or not  racial profiling exists, and some of you will make quick judgments about others that are simply not true.  Now, I’m not asking you not to use good judgment, and I’m not asking you to trust your gut.  But not every skin head is violent? Not every person who is a confederate historian is a racist. So if you read the title..and thought I was going to write about using pepper spray on a big black guy…sorry to disappoint you.

We can a large assortment of Pepper Spray Products for Self-Defense

Now, you are probably pondering why I’m writing this. The other day a big black guy saw my ad and wanted to buy some pepper spray for himself.  He told me it likes to go walking every morning and passes buy some of the criminal elements in his cities .mostly prostitutes and johns and wanted to have some protection.   I also carry pepper spray on my key chain, because sometimes when I’m out walking I encounter dogs, and on the chance that one of them becomes aggressive I want to be prepared.  I also get to model it for potential customers. So if big black guys carry pepper spray for protection…why wouldn’t you?

October is …


October is..k0753024

  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Bullying Prevention Month
  • Church Safety and Security Month
  • National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
  • National Crime Prevention Month
  • National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Somehow this reminds me of that Red Cross commercial where there person wanted to do so many things because there was too much need, and decided that if he gave blood that he could save three people lives.  To that end PepperEyes.com does a lot to deal with many of these issues throughout the year. For example we have a whole division of products that go to support Breast Cancer Research (http://www.peppereyes.com/BreastCancer), the item we sell on eBay go to organizations such as RAINN and  that deal with victims of and The South Carolina Coalition Againist Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.   Our Blog Defense Against Crime (http://peppereyes.wordpress.com/) address many issues included Cyber Security, Crime Prevention, Business Security, Crime Prevention and many other issues.  So just think when you purchase from PepperEyes.com, you help us support other people who have been victims.

We wrote a piece on few statistics on some of these issues see:
http://peppereyes.wordpress.com/2012/10/26/october-is/
A Word on Domestic Violence.

By now we have all seen the TMZ edited video on the incident took place Feb. 15th at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City — after Ray and then-fiancée (now wife) Janay Palmer got into a heated argument on their way into the elevator.   (If not you can find it on the internet) Suddenly some people became shocked and appalled because they could not connect the fact that seeing her dragged out of the elevator after being knocked out was different from seeing her knocked out.  But I digress.

Statistically 1 in 4 women are victims of Domestic Abuse, if this incident at this moment helps shed light to help prevent and address the issue in the civilized world when I’m going to use it. Unfortunately when we talk about Domestic Violence, we only think about physical abuse. However, domestic violence takes on many forms.
·         Emotional
·         Verbal
·         Financial
·         Stalking
·         Digital
·         Physical.

Remember this when you abuse another human being you are abusing the only thing in creation that was made in the likeness and image of God.  So when you see Domestic Abuse in any form or if you are a victim.. STAND UP.. GET HELP.   If you need help contact RAINN.org there can get you help http://centers.rainn.org/ from people in your area.

4 Ways To Prevent Your Car From Being Stolen


020813_1923_Gonein26Sec1.jpgAccording to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Uniform Crime Reports, a motor vehicle was stolen in the United States every 26.4 seconds and two vehicles are stolen every 60 seconds. Annually there are over 1.2 million vehicles that end up in the hands of thieves. Carjacking occur most frequently in urban areas. . You can probably google the cities with the highest auto theft rates. They accounted for only 3.0 percent of all motor vehicle thefts, based on Department of Justice data from 1993 to 2002. If you leave your car unlocked you have a 1-in-30 chance of having you cars stolen. While the victim loses their car, guess who really pays for it. You guessed it, all drivers do in the form of insurance premiums that compensate for the claims of stolen auto claims. The great news is about 62% of stolen cars are recovered, but usually with lots of damage. The remaining 38% can be shipped overseas, end up in chop shops and stripped for parts, or resold to unsuspecting car shoppers.

Every June  the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), published a report that ranks the places with the most per-capita vehicle thefts in the U.S. First place in the latest survey: Bakersfield, Calif. Eight other California locations appear on the list, along with one in Washington state.

 

 

2013 Ranking                                       2012 Ranking
1. Bakersfield, Calif.                                    3.
2. Fresno, Calif.                                           2.
3. Modesto, Calif.                                        1.
4. San Francisco/Oakland/Hayward, Calif.   6.
5. Stockton-Lodi, Calif.                                4.
6. Redding, Calif.                                        10.
7. Spokane-Spokane Valley, Wash.              9.
8. Vallejo-Fairfield, Calif.                              8.
9. San Jose/Sunnyvale/Santa Clara, Calif.   7.
10. Yuba City, Calif.                                     31.

While the United States overall recorded car-theft decreases of around 3.2% over the previous year, the west (dominated by California and Washington) is still popular with car thieves. 

Don’t get burned. Whether you live near an auto-theft hot spot or not, you can use the NICB’s four “layers of protection” to help stop thieves in their tracks.

Common Sense –  Among other safety precautions, always remove keys from the ignition and keep doors locked when your vehicle isn’t in use AT ALL TIMES

Warning Device – Install anything from an audible alarm to a steering-column collar to tell car thieves your car is protected.

Portable Car Lock Alarm w/emove

Immobilizing Device – Use smart keys, kill switches and other tech tools to prevent a thief from bypassing the ignition and hot-wiring your car.

Tracking Device- Install this to send a signal to police or a monitoring station if your vehicle is stolen. In a few states, it could even qualify you for an additional discount on your auto coverage.

Colleges are revising sexual violence policies


This summer it was announced that annually one in five college women are sexually assaulted, This is not news to those of 092211_1853_IveGotaBad1.jpgus who have been tracking this data for years.  Up until this year the rate was 1 in 4,which means that some things are beginning to work, but there is more to do.  

Statistically the victim is assaulted  by someone she knows, according to the same government report. Most of those incidents happen during the student’s freshman or sophomore year, and many of the cases go unreported. A campus sexual assault study by the Department of Justice found that about 6 percent of victims of such assaults or attempted assaults are male, but the overwhelming majority of victims are female. 

College Campuses seem to have heard this message loud and clean and many of them are revising their policies in an attempt to reduce these statistics even further.

It is quite possible that many college will follow suit to strengthen their policies that will no doubt reduce some incidents of sexual assault. However, these policies will not complete stop the crime. Think about this, how long has the law against murder been in existence. Almost every branch of the civilized world has different laws meant to reduce murder, yet in the United States alone one homicide is committed every six minutes. It is still our core belief that the person who has the greatest responsibility for your personal safety is YOU.  This month is National Campus Safety Awareness Month where colleges are attempting to educate their students about the resources and tools available to keep them safe. Many campuses give out free whistles to females. Many campuses are educating their students on responsible drinking, and much more.  

I really do applaud these school for tackling the issue in the best way available to them today, but ultimately your safety is primarily your responsibility. Equip yourself with the tool and knowledge to help reduce your chances of being part of your college crime statistics
