Being prepared is something we all care about, but some people put more effort into preparation than others. If you are the kind of person who is never more than a few steps from a pocket knife and a bottle of water, you are probably more aware of your surroundings than your peers. You find yourself casually wondering what you’d do if your car broke down on the highway, if you were trapped in an elevator, or if a burglar attacked your home. It’s fun to think about different scenarios about how you might break out of the elevator hatch like an action movie hero but this has likely resulted in you being just a little more prepared than your average desk jockey.

What really happened to Amelia Earhart

The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) believes it has the key to unlock the decades-old mystery of what happened to famed aviator Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan in their planned circumnavigation of the globe in 1937. TIGHAR’s The Earhart Project analyzed dozens of radio transmissions received by radio amateurs and other short-wave listeners during the frantic search to locate Earhart’s plane when she did make her scheduled arrival at Howland Island. Many theories have sprung up over the years to explain the mysterious disappearance, but a TIGHAR research paper entitled The Post-Loss Radio Signals, published in July by The Earhart Project, maintains that “the patterns and relationships emerging from the data show that TIGHAR has answered the 81-year-old question: ‘What really happened to Amelia Earhart?’”
