There is a very small chance—1-in-250 million—that this asteroid could hit us on its next passage by Earth on September 28, 2017. But you have a better chance of winning the Super Lotto jackpot than being crushed by this asteroid. Even if 2013 TX68 were to hit the Earth, it wouldn’t wipe us out. It could easily spoil someone’s day, make no mistake: this asteroid is about 100 feet in diameter, almost twice the size of the object that exploded in the atmosphere above Chelyabinsk, Russia, three years ago. The Chelyabinsk air-burst produced a shockwave that damaged buildings and shattered windows across a wide area, and, had it struck the ground intact, would have left a significant crater. 2013 TX68 would release about twice the energy as the Chelyabinsk event.

Bushcraft generally refers to wilderness survival skills and was initially used to describe the survival skills needed in the Australian bush country or outback. The isolated outback territory meant whatever you took with you when choosing to go on "walkabout" was pretty much all you had. You lived off what you had until you returned home or reached your destination.
Buschcraft has now become pretty much synonymous with wilderness survival regardless of your location. And whether by choice or circumstance, if you rely on only your supplies and skills to live off the land for an extended amount of time, a good bushcraft knife becomes an essential tool.
You can't just bring along any old knife and expect it to hold up to the repetitive, rugged tasks you need to perform to survive in the wild. A bushcraft knife also called a wilderness knife, is a popular style knife because it can repeatedly perform multiple tasks like dressing game, cutting tree limbs, rope, and fishing line or even some carving.
Planet X, or Nibiru, is on a crash course with Earth, doomsayers believe — prophecies draw new focus with 'Planet Nine' discovery. The planet, according to Caltech researchers, has a mass about 10 times that of Earth and takes about 15,000 years to make a full orbit around the sun. Doomsayers have prophesized for decades about a giant, rogue planet in our solar system that has the capability of colliding or passing near earth. Now it seems that it may be fast approaching the Earth, with it's arrival estimated at several weeks to several months.
Larvicide Manufactured By Sumitomo, Not Zika Virus, True Cause Of Brazil's Microcephaly Outbreak! Pregnant women all over the world have been advised to take caution. The Zika virus infection has been linked to newborn babies with the birth defect microcephaly. This is a congenital condition in which babies are born with unusually tiny heads. The notion, however, has recently been challenged by a group of Argentine physicians. The group suspects that the Zika virus is not to blame for the rise in microcephaly cases, but that a toxic larvicide introduced into Brazil's water supplies may be the real culprit.
