EMP Preparedness. (Electrical Magnetic Pulse)

Is the DHS doing anything at all to prepare as well as protect our nation from an EMP attack? If not, why not? Something this serious should NEVER be ignored!! An EMP attack could wipe out our power grid leaving us without electricity for many months, possibly years! This event or weapon, commonly known as an EMP, creates a short burst of electromagnetic energy that can disrupt or even destroy electronic devices and systems,... more »

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans will be afraid to go to the voting booths for the primaries and general election. As such, states will need to prepare for an influx of absentee and vote-by-mail ballots. processing and verifying these ballots is going to be a monstrous task, especially for states and counties that typically receive very little absentee ballots.

National Security

Hello,

Currently I am taking an anti terrorism centered degree but couldn't help to think that the real security issue for the United States is the government and companies. It takes more effort to realize that a person's thinking can be wrong and have negative effects. Political corruption has more impact on the security of a nation then terrorism. The United States isn't defined by the government but by the people.... more »

Open Data

Test to find out if mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting insects can transmit Covid 19.

Since we know ticks and mosquitos already transmit viruses(Rocky Mountain spotted fever, West Nile and Lyme disease to name just a few.of the dozens that are transmittable through a bite) to humans, we need to know if Covid 19 can be transmitted in this fashion too.

If it is found to be transmittable in this fashion a further lockdown may be required along with possible pest management in high population areas.

Alternative N95 Mask

URGENT regarding possible substitution for the N95 mask

I recommend performing a test on the efficacy of using a disposable diaper (toddler size) in lieu of an N95 mask for all health care workers and first responders. I performed a fit test, and I was able to create a sufficient seal using just a diaper (and the included velcro straps). Note: disposable diapers are made of non-woven synthetic material just like N95... more »

Some recent tests have discovered that this virus doesn't survive in hot conditions or hot temperatures. The solution is to build hot chambers like sauna rooms for the patients... more »
