Default Video suggestions

Hmm, we have threads for fiction and non-fiction books, movies and television shows, but couldn't see one for short videos such as found on youtube.
So, here one is...

First suggestion for those with a strong stomach is this: https://youtu.be/0Yf5frBI4lg
"War Surgery - An Introduction"

(GRAPHIC medical surgery filmed at Peshawar, 1988 by the International Committee of the Red Cross)
- Emphasizing that:
Delayed Primary Closure of Contaminated Wounds Saves Lives.

This film shows:
General Principles
Lower Limb Amputations
Facial and Perineal Injury
Skin Grafting
Fasciotomy
External Fixation
Skeletal Traction

"It is a sad fact that at the beginning of so many wars , doctors dealing with the injured often have to re-learn the principles of war surgery. That re-learning is at the expense of the victims of war.

"This film is an introduction to the management and treatment of war injuries. This filming was done in a hospital far from the fighting. Few fresh wounds are seen and the vast majority are very much older than six hours. The injured often have to travel many days."

"The principal of the surgery is to remove dead tissue widely, ideally preserving as much skin as possible."

"The nature of war surgery, where the patients present late, is by nature the surgery of contaminated dirty wounds."

A documentary I haven't finished yet (~90 minutes) is "Operation Odessa"
-- from Showtime, but currently on Netflix.

I think "Miami Vice" bleeding into Tom Clancy may be the best way to describe it. In the 90s, when everything ex-Soviet was apparently for sale, some drug-smuggler-types attempt to buy a submarine.

There are interviews with the 3 principals and the DEA agents who were investigating them (and brought them down, I think).

Well, if it's detail you're looking for, you could do a lot worse than checking out The Chieftain's channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp4...jie44iZroCb99A

Came across this on youtube. Not often you see a Trident on Army BDUs.
Navy SEAL who became a 160th SOAR pilot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TOmDADh6U0

(Just don't let any munchkin players see this.)

Not sure how uncommon it really is (not saying it is supper common), as I have personally known three Soldiers who have a Trident. One was a recruiter for the Army Guard, One was a Green beret, and the last was one of my team leaders in EOD.

Mate of mine started in the army, transferred to air force, and was then tapped on the shoulder to go into subs for the navy....

I found this interesting video comparing British weapons and ex Soviet weapons penetration on common barriers.

Check out PILOTPHOTOG's new channel. He reviews jet aircraft and is very good about posting their specs. I like that he tries to give insight into the aircraft in question. He is also a pilot so he can give a unique perspective from someone who flys.

I also want to give a shout out to DUNGEON CRAFT on YouTube. Although his focus is on running the ultimate game of D&D, he has several good videos on DMing that apply to ALL RPGs in general. Give Professor Dungeon Master a look and see what you think.

Default Biotechnology and Bioterrorism: Re-Conceptualizing Bioweapons Threats | CGSR Seminar

This should scare a few people....

The Center for Global Security Research (CGSR) sponsored this seminar entitled “Biotechnology and Bioterrorism: Re-Conceptualizing Bioweapons Threats” on Sept. 4, 2015, at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The seminar was presented by Kathleen Vogel, associate professor at North Carolina State University.

Abstract:
There remain persistent shortcomings in U.S. government and nongovernment assessments of biological weapons threats—shortcomings with important national security implications. U.S. analysts and policymakers continue either to underestimate or to overestimate the bioweapons capabilities of state and non-state actors. What explains this puzzle? This long track record showing a consistent pattern of error regarding bioweapons threats stems from a striking conformity in judgments about biotechnology and its possible uses. Government and nongovernment analysts assert that the increasing ease, pace, and diffusion of biotechnology is creating a growing, elusive, and more technologically advanced set of bioweapons threats. But this conclusion fails to incorporate crucial social factors that can powerfully shape the development, use, and evaluation of biotechnology for weapons purposes. This talk will discuss an alternative framework for assessing bioweapons threats.

Dr. Kathleen Vogel is an Associate Professor at North Carolina (NC) State University in the Department of Political Science. She also serves as Director of the Science, Technology, and Society Program. Vogel holds a Ph.D. in biological chemistry from Princeton University. Prior to joining the NC State faculty, Vogel was an associate professor at Cornell University with a joint appointment in the Department of Science and Technology Studies and in the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies. Previously, she has been appointed as a William C. Foster Fellow in the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Proliferation Threat Reduction in the Bureau of Nonproliferation. Vogel has also spent time as a visiting scholar at the Cooperative Monitoring Center, Sandia National Laboratories and the Center for Nonprolif*eration Studies, Monterey Institute of International Studies. Her research focuses on studying the social and technical dimensions of bioweapons threats and the production of knowledge in intelligence assessments on WMD issues.

I'm going to bump Pilotphotog's YouTube channel because I like his new format. Here's his video on the F16XL. The experimental Viper fighter that lost out to the MudHen (F15E).

Here's something pretty Twilight2000 oriented. I give you 9-Hole Reviews field test of an AK-74 equipped with an RPG optic. For those who might not know, 9-Hole Reviews tests the practical accuracy of various firearms and optics.

Finally got the link to work.

Here's a really good video on the OV-10 Bronco from someone who actually flew them. A twin-engined CAS aircraft that costs just $1,000 per flight hour is impressive. Most aircraft run between $10k and $100K per flight hour.

The OV-10 comes across as being a very versatile aircraft with decent performance in almost everything it does so long as you don't shove it into a high intensity conflict. It's a pity the USAF didn't see its STOL & COIN capabilities as being useful for supporting special forces type operations.

For T2k use, it's worth remembering that West Germany had 18 Broncos for use as target tugs (retired in 1990). A little bit of creative history and they could still be waiting at some airfield for disposal when the war starts.

Default Old Techniques For Cooking And Survival

Another channel that I'm a frequent watcher of will help fill in the blanks for my fellow "Survivalists" and even those "preppers" who know how to use the stuff they are hoarding. TOWNSENDS is a YouTube Channel focusing on 18th Century cooking and craftmanship. Here is a video on making potato bread...

Here's a documentary on the French mission in Africa (Mali). I just found it again while looking for something else. It's worth watching.

There's a few suburbs in my town where some children and younger adolescents do the trick or treat thing but I'm glad that it died a very quick death in my suburb.

Self-Cleaning
Self-Sharpening
Low Observable/Enhanced Stealth
All-Weather/Low-Light Operable

What could be better? How about pairing those guys with a POWER LLAMA!
