Alaska Outlaw Newsletter

Providing some common sense to the modern-day delivery of "news" by the mainstream and social media outlets.

Happy being done with 2020!!

What a wild year we have had huh?? Well, here we are in 2020 and the Alaskan Outlaw has some real excitement, and knowledge, cued up for the new year, but alas, let us not forget December of 2020. Had some really great shows make their debut. We are really excited about the interviews we had this month and look forward to having several of them in the future. Hope this newsletter finds you well and looking forward to receiving your vaccine. Although I'm not a huge fan of some of the rhetoric floating around about it, I'm happy that the vaccine is here to save lives. Be sure to check out the podcasts wherever you download from.

Celebrating Christmas during this crazy year of the pandemic.

While many of you may be cringing with the idea that I'm pulling out my minister hat to bring fire and brimstone (after all I did graduate from a Baptist University). But alas, I'm sorry to disappoint, but while the meaning of Christmas is really not hinged upon the Christian religion. Today’s message is about hope. It’s about the promise of peace, joy and love being spread throughout the world. The spirit of the season does not recognize the color of skin, the sexual orientation, nor any other factor, but merely the hearts of individuals, the caring for other's needs before their own. The idea that we can all coexist peacefully should be the quality that binds us.

Air Safety. Infection potential in the air we breathe.

Being prepared for natural disasters is really just imagining yourself in your home without utilities, or possibly stranded without the ability to resupply yourself and your family. Right? Wrong. Depending on the disaster, first-aid and basic construction understanding may be needed to keep you and your family safe and secure. However, you may not be aware, but according to the USFA, 37 percent of residential fire victims succumbed to smoke inhalation.

Canine Care and Field Treatment

Many of those pet owners out there seem to forget about their dogs during a natural catastrophe, essentially demoting them to property during an emergency. This changed for me decades ago when I was introduced to the term "working dog". If you've never worked with a "furry tornado with laser beam focus" before, I am here to say that my canines are my partners. They are not "my kids", nor are they just "my dogs", I have formed a life-long partnership with them. As I learned to understand the mind of my canines over the years, it struck me that many pet owners don't fully understand the responsibilities of being a K9 dog handler. Because whether you considered it or not, the day that little heart stealer came home to your house, you became one. From that day, until he/she passes, their whole world revolves around you. As the "alpha" of your pack, your job is to teach them everything, and responding to emergencies is just one very small part.

The Mental Balance. Staying sane in these modern times.

As you may remember from the show on October 21 of 2020, called “Survival Mindset” where we talked about getting the mind right for successful survival. One of the points I made was talking about providing activities for kids to do during and after a local disaster, that were within their level of understanding. I explained that these visible actions would allow the kids to build a level of self confidence. Well this same practice applies to adults too. During my tour with the US Marines, we had an unwritten code that we lived, or died, around. That was “adapt and overcome” and it meant that we (Marines) had to be able to think independently, and adjust our plans of attack to whatever dynamic element tried to intercept our forward momentum. I hope that I can help you come to embrace this mental exercise for your own needs.
