  • Water – at least 3 days of drinking water for everyone in your family including pets (about 1 gallon per person per day). Have a week on hand if possible. Backup sterilization devices (Steripen or Katadyn Extream) and water  enhancers like powdered mixes that replenish electrolytes are handy to have as well.
    • Food – at least 3 days of food per person and pet. We recommend foods that are easy to prepare and don’t require a lot of clean-up like peanut butter, Freeze dried/ dehydrated foods (available at camping stores0, and sweet treats and comfort foods. Don’t forget a can opener for shelf stable canned goods.
    • Lighting– a standard flashlight with extra batteries is a good start. Since lighting is as much a need as a sense of comfort, fun lighting ideas include Glowsticks and Glow-In-the-Dark Stickers.
    • First Aid Kit – extra allergy or  prescription medication is a good idea.  You may want to add  old prescription glasses, sunscreen, and mosquito spray to your basic first-aid kit.
    • Communication – weather and battery operated radio, power inverter that plugs into you car, cell phone backup battery, and online wireless system (in case your phone is damaged), a wireless air card (for laptop) and a USB to back up documents and keep them safe.
    • Atlas – It’s important to follow the secure hurricane routes recommended by officials. An atlas will help you navigate in case you need to go off the beaten path.
    • Storage – keep everything in one safe place and don’t cheat and use it in the meantime. A nice backpack or storage bin is easy to grab and go and make sure items (like batteries or canned goods) are rotated out for freshness.

    1. 5 megabit connection is 5 million bits, divide that by 1000, that’s 5000 kb/s (kilobits), if you want to know how fast that is in file size, then 5 million bits divided by 8, then divide by 1024, which should yield 610 Kbps (kilobytes)

    2. IF YOU ACT POOR AND GET ACCEPTED FOR FIN AID THEY WILL PAY YOU AT A TWO YEAR "COMMUNITY COLLEGE" THESE ARE BASICALLY LOW CLASS COLLEGES AND ONLY HAVE TWO DEGREES. AFTER YOU GET AN A.A DEGREE YOU CAN GET ACCEPTED TO A FIN AID PROGRAM AT A FOUR YEAR UNIVERSITY.

    5. My roommate was one. She enjoyed it, because she was creative and artistic and had a knack for it, but the downsides are it’s VERY time consuming (She’d be gone until 2 or 3 working on projects in the lab, and that was common) and very competitive once you get out of school, esp. in this economy.

    8. i know!!! The media is trying to grow kids up fast so that the industry has a wider range of buyers for their products. The thing is, transformers was originally an animated kids show, and then an animated movie, until the real life re-make where Shia La Boef and Megan Fox sex things up just a little too much, and use language that they probably shouldnt. Its all part of the Mega plan to get kids to whine to their parents to buy them everything. I know where you are coming from.

    9. No. Makeup can help even your skin tone and enhance your natural features. But I think the best thing to do to look beautiful is stay healthy. Drink water. Practice good hygiene. Take care of your skin and teeth. Then smile, and your beauty will show.

    10. When you get to the end of the seam, sew backwards about a half an inch. Then you can clip your hanging threads. I’ve seen sewers who tape a small bag close to the machine so they can toss those clipped tails in there.
