HELP YOURSELF FIRST, THEN GO AND HELP THE OTHERS

This one sounds egocentric at the first look but  is actually quite the opposite and is one of the simplest to understand.

You need to learn very well and practice, before you can start teaching others.

Without knowing exactly how to correctly help yourself there is a high chance that you can cause more damage than do any good to those who are in need of some help.

Trying to help someone else before you assured that you are out of danger might bring you in a situation where you not only cant deliver the support to the others but would need help yourself and someone else would need to assign resources to get you and the others out of troubles.
This, by all means, doesn't say "do not risk anything". When someone needs help, please go and help, but calculate the risks and make sure you can do it and are able to complete the task, before moving into a situation.

Unfortunately there are too many teachers without good knowledge base..

WATER

Water is as important as the air (we all know, right? 45-75 percent of our body is water) Mostly people already know where to get water from and how to treat it. I will add few methods here which might be  less known. From the air (basically producing/collecting water vapor) - Air is almost always carrying water vapor. To collect it one would need a surface which is cooler as the surrounding air, to condense the water. In some cases fine meshes (or any other cold material/powder with a big surface) which can catch the water droplets from the saturated air (keep in mind that this water would also contain most of the dust and chemicals from that air too..) One could create water vapor from the salt water - through evaporation or to get the salts out and apply reverse-osmosis. Water could be extracted from the ground - mostly on the lower end of the hills and mountains (either collecting directly or through evaporation) Some layers of the earth are not letting the water through and a

AIR

Air sounds simple but it isn't really. To find good air today is a sort of a problem Rules are simple: stay away from industrial or dusty areas and keep the air humidity around you between 50% and 60% Air temperature in the area should drop down below 0 degrees C at least once a year. Keep plastics and foams out and away of your house (softmakers (plasticizers) in plastics and other chemicals are pure poison) ! Ventilate your house/shelter fully at least once a day Wet-clean your house at least once a week Apply mechanical filtering through tissue or ceramics where possible to keep micro-particle quantities, suspended in the air, down. With the above rules folowed, you should have an acceptable air quality in the house.  Some dust pre-filters are strongly suggested if   proximity to big cities or other dusty areas, like deserts or construction sites, is unavoidable. Below there are some simple and self-explaining steps to how to do an improvised face mask (dust-mask or wear

The Man, his life and the pope

There are always ups and downs, no matter which job or status you have.  A good story I learned which helps me understand where I am in life when it becomes "difficult" A man was always unhappy with his life and couldn't find the way out, so he went to the pope to ask for advise. -man: could you please help me to get my life happy again. my wife is always nagging on me, kids scream around and do not respect what i tell them. money is just enough to buy food and clothes.. i dont want to live like this.. -pope: well, I listen to gods will and suggest you to go and buy a dog. -man: are you sure?  -pope: of course, its gods voice, so go and buy a dog. Man buys a dog and comes back in a month. -man: listen pope, i deeply respect you and your wisdom but i think something went wrong. Wife nags even more now as dog is barking and brings dirt into the house. In addition we have to feed him so we have less to eat ourselves.. kids are only playing with the dog and I am worried he wi
