How to survive a nuclear attack is at the top of the concerns of Americans amid the increasing war of words between North Korea and the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will conduct a briefing January 16th “Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation,” to detail how to prepare for nuclear war.

“While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” states the excerpt from the CDC’s website.

The CDC also states that all the information is crucial to increase survival, “For instance, most people don’t realize that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation.”

War Of Words

As we know, the war of words of nuclear prowess between North Korean  Kim Jong-un and  President Donald Trump has escalated.

President Trump tweeted Tuesday night, boasting his “nuclear button” is  “much bigger & more powerful” than North Korea’s.


World leaders have expressed their worry in recent days as the U.S.  edges closer to nuclear war with North Korea.

Besides knowledge of  how to survive a nuclear attack, having the correct gear and supplies is crucial. Survival experts recommend having a bugout bag and at least 2 -3 weeks of food and water to last for each person.

Nigerian Prince Scam Busted in Louisiana.  The internet has made it possible for love (which lends itself to its own scams) to be found anywhere around the globe. It has opened the chances of one finding the love of one’s life, the job of one’s dreams, and untold other social and financial advantages. Well, some have taken it a bit further to exploit the desperation and greed of people.

Michael Neu, a “Nigerian prince” scammer is accused of pretending to be African royalty as part of a scam to trick people out of thousands of dollars. The Slidell Police Department in Louisiana says they have arrested and charged the scammer with 269 counts of wire fraud and money laundering by sending emails to people and then claiming to be a Nigerian Prince.  The email sent claimed that the recipients were the beneficiary of a large sum of money — but in order to receive their “inheritance”, they must first send him their bank account details. Police say people fall for these scams.

“Most people laugh at the thought of falling for such a fraud, but law enforcement officials report annual losses of millions of dollars to these schemes,” Slidell police said in a news release.

Nikia Smith

Nikia Smith was arrested for dropping her children off at the Cobb County, Georgia Department of Family and Children Services office and telling them (the children) that she didn’t want them. According to staff, the three children – six, twelve, and fourteen was visibly upset. Because it was the end of the day, staff urged her to take her children and return the following day.

Marietta police officer stated that a call was made to her that she was told to return or she would be arrested. The mother responded that she would prefer to go to jail than to take her children back, according to police.

Smith later explained that she left her children because of her 14-year -old daughter had a mental disability and she could no longer afford the medication.   The children were all taken into protective custody, and Smith was eventually arrested.

Desperation and despair lead to such actions. We need to handle such cases with compassion. As more of the safety net is dismantled we will see more of such cases.
