Buy some Time With This Gadget

While traveling security in hotels is a big concern. There are heaps of fancy expensive gadgets that profess to keep you safe. Not the case.

Here is an item that costs next to nothing and seasoned travelers swear by to keep them safe. 

The simple humble ‘Door Stop’.

 

This rubber wedge is only $3 in most cases. This can be used while staying at any hotel room to stop those unwanted intruders from breaking and entering.

The toughest burglar would find trouble breaking into a hotel room with this wedge under the door where the security chain is just an easy pop of strength  to break.

If there was a lone gunman or terrorist  attack they typically go room to room and in an event of not being able to open the door they will move on to the rest of the rooms before returning to yours,  which will give you escape time and time to call for help

Seal A Gunshot Wound In 15 Seconds

incredible-yet-simple invention can seal a gunshot wound in 15 seconds 1

While the U.S. Defense Department is taking bold steps to embrace the latest technology in nearly every operational specialty, it might be the simplicity of a kitchen sponge that saves hundreds of lives every year.

The new battlefield gadget is called X-STAT, and it uses a novel twist on simple science, offering a different way to treat deep gun shot wounds that have plagued military medics for years.

The sponges work fast: In just 15 seconds, they expand to fill the entire wound cavity, creating enough pressure to stop heavy bleeding, reports Popular Science. Keeping the technology simple is hugely important in the chaotic, pre-hospital environment. RevMedx designed the XSTAT to literally be plug-and-play.

The dime-sized expanding sponges – which are made from standard medical-grade sponges and covered with a hemostatic agent – are injected into the wound with the plastic tube and immediately expand to stop the bleeding. And because the sponges cling to moist surfaces, they can’t be pushed back out of the body by gushing blood.

RevMedx claims uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of death on the battlefield and the second leading cause of death in civilian trauma. According to a report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the highest percentage of survivable battlefield deaths from 2001-2009 came from major trauma hemorrhage.

RevMedx, founded in 2009, focused their research on solving the problem of “non-compressible hemorrhage,” and believes their modified syringe that injects specially coated sponges into wounds will be the solution:

“A significant number of wounds occur to regions of the torso where compression cannot be applied, such as the pelvis or shoulder … By working closely with the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and US Special Operations Command, we succeeded in developing a novel hemostatic dressing capable of stopping high-flow arterial bleeding within seconds without external compression.”
RevMedx recently petitioned the FDA for approval of their invention, Popular Science reports. The company claims XSTAT could boost survival rates and spare injured soldiers from additional pain.

“The core technology behind the XSTAT dressing is mini-sponges that expand upon contact with blood — resulting in a nearly immediate hemostatic effect without manual compression,” the RevMedx site states. “We are incorporating this self-expanding sponge technology into a portfolio of hemostatic dressings to treat a wide range of wound types.”

The DoD Hemorrhage and Resuscitation Research and Development Program portfolio manager said the XSTAT provides the military with a totally new way to save lives, according to the Army. “It is a capability that has never existed before, and can be used in the field setting by medics, possibly even with buddy aid,” Dr. Anthony Pusateri said.

Put some used tea bags in a jar and place them in your refrigerator to absorb odors.

2. Kitty Litter As Cell Phone Saver

If your phone gets wet you can try drying it in a box of cat litter. Remove the battery and SIM card, then dry the phone off and slide it into a sock. Tie the sock closed and put it in a container filled with the litter. After three days, check to see if there’s any moisture left on the screen. If so, put it back for another couple of days.

3. Baby Wipes As Gadget Cleaners

Before you go out and purchase pricey electronics cleaners, keep in mind baby wipes work just as well.

4. Hydrogen Peroxide As Stain Remover

Unfortunately bleach has left hydrogen peroxide with somewhat of a bad rap. Commonly used as an anti-septic nowadays it makes for an awesome disinfectant and stain remover.

5. Cereal Bags As Ziplocs

Ziplock bags cost a fortune and the store-brand stuff is rarely worth its weight in flimsy plastic. Plastic cereal bags, however, are great liners that can be reused. You can use them to store baked goods or a sandwich, apply breadcrumb coatings to meat, fish and poultry, roll up cookie dough logs, contain ingredients to be crushed with a rolling-pin, or as a trash container in your car.
