    Something’s Fishy With The US ‘Data’ on Ukraine, Russia

    The 'evidence' is surprisingly weak

    For weeks now I've been patiently waiting for the US to release some (any!) definitive data about the Ukraine situation, including the MH17 shoot-down.  After all, as everybody knows, the US has intensive satellite and electronic scanning technologies in place around the globe, and therefore should be able to provide some serious intelligence to make its case.

    Frankly, the US needs to provide much harder evidence for its current claims to be credible.

    What Data Can We Trust?

    How can we make decisions in a world of flawed information?

    Modern investing offers the promise that investors who "do their homework" and use data more intelligently than the herd can gain a valuable edge. But what if the underlying data available to the investing public is fundamentally flawed? 

    The federal government agencies that issue headline data and the mainstream media that reprints the data without skeptical analysis would have us believe that these indicators — the unemployment rate and the consumer price index (CPI), for example — accurately reflect economic realities.

    The other indicator that is implicitly or explicitly assumed to reflect the economy’s health is, of course, the stock market, generally represented by the S&P 500 index.

    That the government indicators and the stock market are both suspect is now a given.

    Considering Data Backup

    by Jason Wiskerchen

    Many of us here within the ChrisMartenson.com community were introduced to the need of preparedness through watching the Crash Course and later exploring the WSID Guide and Blog.  As personal awareness grew, many of us started to look at emergencies and situations that would have a dramatic and profound affect on our lives, and we began to make preparations to deal with those emergencies and build more resiliency into our lives.

    We started to evaluate our water, food, and housing security more closely and to make sure we had backup plans and resources. Health, wealth, and community became a bigger concern for many of us, as we learned more about the state of the systems we rely on so heavily and their overall decline in supporting us in the future.

    With all of the situations and concerns we look at when building resiliency into our lives, one topic that gets overlooked frequently is our “digital lives” and how to protect them from catastrophe. The majority of us are perpetually connected to a digital life. Everything from banking and financial records, contracts, business documents, and our personal photos and memories are all stored on a hard drive somewhere as binary 1’s and 0’s.
