Guard Alaska Bear Spray Is The Perfect Gift for Campers

January 11th, 2021

I think the gifts that I most remember receiving are the ones that are just a little out of the ordinary but still have been very meaningful and purposeful. So if you have anyone on your gift shopping list that happens to be a camper I have the perfect gift for them. One that might be just a little out of the ordinary but could very well save their life one day and it doesn’t get any more purposeful than that, does it? You should buy that camper on your list a canister of Guard Alaska bear spray.

I’m an avid camper myself and often times that camping is done in areas where bears are present and I love not being bitten in the head, throat and chest area by these bears. Heck, I love it when no part of my body is bitten by half-ton grizzly bears. Because of this fact I always carry Guard Alaska bear spray on my person when travelling in bear country. Nothing will ruin an enjoyable family camping trip like an old-school bear mauling. sure camping is a great deal of fun but 500 pounds of black bear will put an end to all of that real quick if you aren’t prepared. And being prepared while camping in bear country means making sure you have Guard Alaska bear spray on you at all times.

Guard Alaska bear spray works in the same way that pepper spray works on humans. Bears, much like humans, do not like being sprayed in the face with insanely hot pepper spray. It is extremely painful and I urge you to check out videos on the web of bear spray being used on actual bears. I know that might sound a bit cruel but the bear suffers no permanent damage from bear spray just as a human suffers no lasting effects from pepper spray in the vast majority of cases.

Guard Alaska bear spray has an effective range of about 15-20 feet depending on wind conditions. this spray also boasts no ozone-depleting chemicals so you can do your part to preserve nature while not being mauled to death in it. And as I just stated the bear will suffer no long term ill effects just enough temporary pain to leave you and the area alone long enough for you to high tail it out of there to safety.

Die Casting Aluminum and Its Significance in Aerospace Industry

December 15th, 2020

Die Casting Aluminum products are of great use in various industry sectors and more so in the aerospace industry where precision and high quality products is of utmost importance. These products are used in building both small as well as the major components in the aviation industry. Further, Aluminum Casting parts are used both in the commercial as well as pivotal military sector (in fighter planes etc). The reason for this is simple – they are cost-effective solutions and offer great results.

Apart from being cost effective, the components made from die casting aluminum are additionally prepared to endure harsh weather conditions and increased damages. Another most important reason for using aluminum products in aircraft is that the metal is comparatively cheaper than other metals that are die casted. Moreover, aluminum has the potential to gel with other metals in order to offer durability and much flexible.

With aluminum casted products, you do not have to compromise on the quality yet can them at much cheaper production cost. In addition, all the standards that have been set for using of metal components, aluminum satisfy the need to the utmost. Hence, they are certified safe for use in planes, cost effective and have all the qualities that are required for flying crafts, so Casting Aluminum is on the rise like never before. In addition, the best thing about an aluminum die cast part is that its weight is favorable for the aircraft operations.

So, how exactly is Casting Aluminum done and what are the processes involved? Well, the answer is simple. Aluminum alloy is first forced into a high-grade steel tool at high speed and pressure in a high temperature. This results in superior quality products that are extremely light and thin walled ideal for use as aircraft components.

It is to be mentioned here that Aluminum Casting is a complex method. Only a really experienced and high skilled team of engineers can ensure that the components come with high volumes or with better tolerances and surface finish. In fact, this type of pressure casting is far more popular than gravity die casting or sand casting. This is because the need for machining in this method whether for aluminum or Zinc Casting is very low due to the close casting tolerances. Though the tooling costs in Casting Aluminum or rather any metal are considerably higher than the other two methods yet, the mechanical properties achieved thus are far better in terms of functionality.

How to Find Cheap Alaska Auto Insurance Rates

December 6th, 2020

Looking for a break on your Alaska auto insurance rates? We’ve compiled 3 simple steps you can take to make sure you are getting the best possible Alaska car insurance rate available to you.

1. Understand your required coverage. In Alaska, you are required to carry liability insurance of 50/100/25. Broken down, that means insurance that provides up to $50,000 for injuries or death to any one person, $100,000 for total injury or death per collision, and $25,000 for property damage. Alaska uses a Tort system, which means someone must be found at fault for each accident. That person’s insurance pays the damages for all parties involved.

If you carry a loan on your car, your loan company will require you to carry full coverage. This protects both you and your loan company. It insures the company will receive the full loan amount for the car should it be unrepairable. It also ensures that you will not be left making payments on a car that you can no longer use.

2. Understand the cost of insurance in Alaska. In 2003, the average insurance premium in Alaska was $1,100/year. There are 10 states that have a higher average annual auto insurance rate.

Some variables that affect your rates include your driving record, your age, your purpose for driving, and the distance you drive just to name a few.

-If you have a clean driving record, it is obvious that you will pay less for your auto insurance than someone who has had accidents or tickets in the past five years. Driving carefully and obeying the laws of the road will save you a significant amount of money, possibly up to 50%.

-Drivers under 21 pay higher premiums because of their lack of experience and higher rate of accidents and incidents. Students however can qualify for discounts with many companies if they keep a high G.P.A or complete a driver’s education course. Often times older drivers can qualify for discounts by taking defensive driving courses. These discounts vary by insurance company and must be asked for.

-Insurance companies consider your driving purpose when calculating rates. A “drives to business or work” rate is higher than a “pleasure” rate. If you don’t work or if you carpool or use public transportation, you need to notify your agent and ask for a reduced rate.

-If you have reduced your daily mileage by driving to a carpool location, only driving 2-3 times a week, driving to a bus stop or any other reason, you should also inform your agent. Depending your new yearly mileage average, you may qualify for a rate reduction.

3. Understand what other discounts may be available to you. Most companies offer discounts for safety equipment on your vehicle such as anti-lock breaks, airbags, daytime running lights, anti-theft devices and more. Companies also offer discounts for multiple car policies or multiple coverage policies in which you insure your home and car with the same company.

Keep Your Family Healthy With Wild Alaska Salmon

November 23rd, 2020

Salmon is a highly nutritious food with many health benefits for you and your family. While farmed salmon is not bad for you, wild Alaska salmon has many more benefits, which leave you feeling even better about the seafood you serve your family.

Before being caught, wild Alaska salmon live and thrive in cold, unspoiled waters, allowing them to grow naturally. This is a difference you can taste. Farmed salmon are kept in open cages along the coast, and are fed up to three pounds of wild fish per pound. Many view this as unnecessary. Also, due to the open pens and cages, diseases and parasites from the farmed salmon are easily leaked into the ocean and spread to other fish. They also contain high levels of polychlorinated biphenyl, or PCB, a toxin. Due to the high PCB levels, the Environmental Defense Fund has issued a warning against farmed salmon. The FDA regulates salmon farming and allows a higher level of contaminates than the EPA does, which regulates wild salmon. The EPA has updated their regulations more recently, so more people trust them over the FDA.

Although most fats are bad for us, omega-3, found in salmon, is a “good” fat. Farmed salmon are fed a lot more than what wild Alaska salmon eat naturally, so have more fat, but this is not necessarily a good thing. The food that the farmed fish are fed often decreases the levels of omega-3, so wild salmon actually have more. For example, plants have no source of omega-3, and farmed salmon eat more plants than wild salmon, which eat none. Also, in order to get rid of contaminates, cooking techniques are different for farmed salmon, which can also get rid of the fat.

Wild salmon specifically from Alaska can be trusted more than farmed salmon because Alaska is both knowledgeable on wild salmon and takes pride in caring for their fish to make sure you receive only the best. Experts monitor the salmon’s egg schedule, making sure that enough have already laid their eggs before catching them. Alaska fishermen follow criteria for sustainability, ensuring that the waters are preserved and that the fish are caught in an ethical manner. Obviously, wild salmon are the better choice. Next time you serve your family salmon, make sure it is wild Alaska salmon.

Missile Defense in Europe

November 5th, 2020

The U.S. ballistic missile defense (BMD) system is a single, integrated system to protect the United States, its deployed forces, and U.S. allies and friends against growing threats posed by ballistic missiles from rogue states such as North Korea and Iran. It is the policy of the United States to work with its allies to deploy defenses against existing and emerging threats from missiles of all ranges.

This is important because a ballistic missile carrying just one weapon of mass destruction payload could cause catastrophic damage to a country. The missile defense system deployed over the past four years protects the United States against long-range attack. It also integrates mobile sea-based and transportable land-based capabilities to intercept shorter-range missiles. In missile defense, geography matters.

The early warning radars in Alaska, California, and the United Kingdom and the long-range missiles based at Fort Greely, Alaska, and Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, are not positioned properly to defend Europe against intermediate-range and long-range ballistic missile attacks from Iran. The short-range defenses (including Patriot systems) deployed by a handful of European allies and current U.S. sea-based missile defenses cannot provide adequate defensive coverage and engage with high confidence the much faster missiles coming out of the Middle East. Iran is in an aggressive race to build on its shorter-range missiles to extend its military reach. It is also acquiring missile technologies and even whole missile systems through trade with proliferators such as North Korea. Iran has publicly announced that it is developing a space launch vehicle, which means developing the technologies and knowledge (e.g., rocket staging) for longer-range ballistic missiles.

These developments, combined with the statements by Iran’s leaders (e.g., Ahmadinejad’s stated goal “to wipe Israel off the face of the map” and his admonition that other nations must “bow down before the greatness of the Iranian nation and surrender”) are reasons for concern about Iran’s military direction. One must ask why a country such as Iran is acquiring ballistic missiles that can reach more than 1,500 kilometers, a strike range that would overfly Israel and the American bases in the region.

One possible answer is that Iran sees value in having the ability to coerce and impose Iranian policy on European leaders by holding them hostage. The power to blackmail and threaten European and U.S. leaders means that Iran might not need to fire a single missile to affect the foreign and defense policies of its enemies.

An operational missile defense system that protects European nations could counter any such move by Tehran. Preparing defenses against an emerging missile threat takes many years, which is why the Bush Administration decided to proceed with deploying 10 long-range interceptors in Poland and building a midcourse discrimination radar in the Czech Republic.

The missiles and the radar would provide redundant protection of the United States and an initial defense of Central and Northern Europe from long-range ballistic missile attack. The radar in Central Europe would supplement sensor coverage from the early warning radar in the United Kingdom, which is already integrated into the U.S. system, and other radars that might be deployed in and around the region on land and at sea. These Central European sites provide geographically ideal locations for protecting both the United States and our European allies. Allies in Southern Europe are not vulnerable to long-range missile attack from Iran, but in a crisis, they would need the shorter-range defenses offered by Patriot PAC-3s, Aegis BMD ships, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) batteries, and other NATO missile defense systems. The United States has concluded negotiations with the Czech Republic and Poland. In April 2008, all 26 NATO nations formally endorsed the missile defense plan, agreeing with the United States that the threat from Iran is serious and that the Bush Administration’s planned defense approach is the right one. The benefits of this deployment are clear.

Long-range defenses in Europe will increase the options available to U.S. leaders to defend against sophisticated threats by providing more decision time and engagement opportunities. This deployment would strengthen transatlantic security by reassuring and defending allies and friends, complementing emerging NATO plans to defeat short-range and medium-range threats, and preventing coercion and preserving U.S. and NATO freedom of action. An effective missile defense system could also dissuade rogue states from pursuing ballistic missiles in the first place and deter ballistic missile launches. Critics of the European deployments worry about the predictable negative reaction from Russia’s leaders and the possibility of damage caused by debris. However, the 10 interceptors in Poland and the midcourse radar in the Czech Republic oriented toward the Middle East are incapable of intercepting the hundreds of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and the thousands of warheads in the Russian arsenal.

Russian concern that the United States could turn these defensive interceptors into offensive weapons is likewise groundless. Future U.S. activities at missile defense sites in Europe will be transparent to the Russians and to host nations. Perhaps more important, this concern does not make military sense from the U.S. point of view because the U.S. already has the capability to bring offensive strike submarines or bombers into a regional conflict. The United States has also assured its allies that the launched objects’ momentum will cause debris resulting from intercepts in space to continue along the missiles’ original trajectories and that most of this debris will burn up when it reenters the atmosphere.

Another way to view the debris question is to compare it to Europe’s experiences during World War II, when leaders found that shooting down enemy aircraft, regardless of where they crashed and the level of damage caused by the crashes, made far more sense than allowing them to survive and deliver their bombs.

Fresh Air and Not Being Mauled Are My Favorite Things About Camping With Guard Alaska Bear Spray

October 21st, 2020

It’s still cold here in the Midwest but April is 2 short days away and the warm weather will be here soon enough. I love the summer because it allows me the opportunity to do my favorite thing in the world and that is to go camping. Now, when I say camping I mean real honest-to-goodness camping in tents, not a big shiny Winnebago (although if someone is giving one away I’ll take it). I just love the outdoors and everything about camping, the campfires, fresh air, star filled skies at night and most of all I am just head-over-heels in love with not being mauled to death by bears.

There is nothing like a day of hiking and swimming, followed by a night around the campfire roasting marshmallows and then falling asleep under the stars without being viciously attacked by a 400 pound black bear. I would follow this schedule every day for the rest of my life if I could. I haven’t actually taken a poll or researched this but I would be willing to bet that the vast majority of camping enthusiasts, if not every last one of them, prefers to enjoy their time outdoors without being the victim of a fatal bear attack. Fortunately for myself, and for lovers of the outdoors everywhere, there is a very simple measure we can take to help ensure that we are not the victim of a bear attack when camping, hiking or just enjoying the great outdoors, and that simple measure is Guard Alaska bear spray.

Guard Alaska bear spray works very much the same way that pepper spray works on a human attacker. The spray is a highly concentrated defensive spray that burns the nose, eyes, throat and lungs like crazy when it makes contact. The range on Guard Alaska is about 15-20 feet (depending on wind and weather conditions) which should provide ample room and time to point and spray the bear in its face. From the testimonials I have heard and videos I have watched the bear will more often than not turn tail and retreat after being sprayed.

Believe it or not, bear spray can be more effective than most guns in stopping a bear attack. What do you think a bullet from a low caliber rifle or handgun is going to do to an angry half-ton grizzly bear? Probably just piss it off more than it already is. Not only can Guard Alaska be more effective than a firearm, it is infinitely more humane than a gun. Firearms can kill, or at the very least permanently wound the bear whereas the effects of bear spray are not permanent and in almost all cases leave the bear with no permanent side effects. The spray is even endorsed by the EPA as it contains no harmful chemicals for the environment.

So if you are planning on hiking, camping, climbing, swimming, running or anything else you can think of in bear populated areas please do yourselves and your loved ones a favor and be sure to carry Guard Alaska bear spray with you at all times.

Guard Alaska Bear Spray For People Who Are Camping or Hiking and Not Bear Grylls

October 13th, 2020

Bear Grylls is a man’s man. He jumps out of helicopters into the barren wilderness, surrounded by wild animals, food-less and alone and he does it, more or less, for the fun of it. I vividly remember one episode where he stranded himself in the middle of a desert somewhere in Africa and resorted to eating a freshly deceased zebra carcass. Although I was initially disgusted by it I can remember thinking ‘now here is a guy who knows how to survive in any condition’. He would no doubt to be a good person to have with you should you find yourself camping in any place populated by bears. He could no doubt fashion a weapon of self-defense out of a stick, some pine cones and dirt. The rest of us however should consider carrying a canister of Guard Alaska bear spray if we plan on camping or hiking in bear country.

Bear attacks are very rare and your chances of being attacked by a bear in your lifetime, even if you are an avid camper in bear populated areas, is relatively slim. This fact should be no reason to not arm yourself with such a spray should you intend on venturing into the wilderness yourself. Just because the probability of something is rare does not mean we shouldn’t take necessary steps to protect ourselves in the event that it does happen. I drive my car several times a day and hundreds of times a year and have never been in a serious car accident but you better believe I wear my seat belt just in case. The odds of a serious automobile accident is slim but it doesn’t stop me from taking necessary precautions.

Bear spray works the same way that pepper spray works on human attackers. It is an ultra-concentrated defensive spray intended to cause the bear such intense discomfort that it gives up and high tails it from the area. Guard Alaska bear spray has an effective range (depending on wind conditions) of approximately 15-20 feet.

Another nice thing about this product is that it does not permanently harm the bear in any way. One of the reasons bear attack are so rare is that most bears are not roaming the forest looking for humans to eat. Usually when a bear attack does occur it is because the bear feels threatened or feels that it’s cubs are in danger. They are a gentle species for the most part and I think we’ve done enough as a species to eliminate them already. No need to eliminate more.

Guard Alaska Bear Spray Is An Animal Repellent

September 24th, 2020

Enjoying the great outdoors is something everyone should experience. Camping is a great way to get exercise, fresh air and can be a wonderful bonding experience between friends and family alike. Many of the camping destinations in the United States can be visited without necessitating animal repellents of any kind (unless you consider bug repellent). But anyone venturing off into wilderness inhabited by bears of any kind should absolutely, without exception, carry with them at all times some form of bear spray. There are a few brands of bear repellent spray available but the only one whose effectiveness I can personally testify to is a bear spray by Guard Alaska. Mace brand makes a bear spray as well and I would trust a leader in the self-defense industry like Mace but again I haven’t actually witnessed Mace bear spray repelling a bear. I have however witnessed multiple videos of Guard Alaska repelling a bear and it certainly seems to be the most popular bear spray out there today.

Bear repellent spray works on bears in exactly the same way that pepper spray works on humans. The main ingredients in both products are capsicum. Capsicum is what makes a hot pepper ‘hot’. It is also what stops an attacker, be it a bear or a human, as soon as it is sprayed into the face of either. It causes a severe burning sensation and causes swelling in the eyes that can lead to temporary blindness. All of that may sound very inhumane but when you consider the fact that defensive sprays leave no permanent adverse effects and that the bear is back to its old self later that same day it may not seem so inhumane after all. Plus it is certainly much more humane than ending the bear’s life by defending yourself with a firearm. Some studies have shown bear spray to be even more effective than firearms in some cases. If that isn’t enough of a reason to convince you to carry bear spray on your next camping trip I don’t know what is.

Lastly, Guard Alaska bear spray is completely safe for the environment as it contains no ozone depleting chemicals. That should be great news for any outdoor enthusiasts as the great outdoors can’t be enjoyed if we destroy it by way of harmful chemicals now can it?

So please, as a favor to your loved ones and as a favor to yourself please be sure to carry a bear repellent like Guard Alaska anytime you will be venturing into bear populated areas for any amount of time.

Driving Under the Influence

Alaska has two ways in which someone can be prosecuted for DUI. One is if the person is driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This means that the person is too impaired to operate their vehicle safely. Someone who is under the influence and too impaired to drive may exhibit odd driving behaviors such as driving too slowly, excessive braking, or swerving when it is not necessary to avoid an obstacle in the road. Someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol may also cause accidents due to their impairment. Impairment can be determined by the way they are driving or by their failure to successfully complete field sobriety tests. The other way a person can be prosecuted for DUI in Alaska is if their blood alcohol content level exceeds the limit of 0.08%. This level can be determined using chemical testing. Contacting an Alaska DUI lawyer as soon as you’ve been arrested for a DUI offense is imperative. These legal professionals know how to review each type of evidence and also have access to expert witnesses that may be able to reduce the impact of this evidence on your case.

Alaska DUI Penalties

Most DUI offenses in Alaska are classified as misdemeanors. The exceptions occur when someone has committed a third offense or greater or when a DUI results in bodily injury. The penalties for DUI in Alaska become more severe with each offense and can include fines, jail time, and community service. Some offenders can be sentenced to electric monitoring instead of jail time. Discussing all of these consequences with an Alaska DUI lawyer can help you to decide the best course of action to take and help you have the best chance for winning your case.

Administrative DUI Penalties

Criminal charges and penalties are not the only problems you will face if you are arrested for DUI. You will also have to deal with the Department of Motor Vehicles and the administrative penalties that they impose when someone is charged with a DUI. This suspension will take effect 7 days after your arrest so it is IMPERATIVE that you contact an Alaska DUI lawyer before that time period expires. A qualified Alaska DUI attorney can help you get a hearing with the DMV to request a temporary license that you can use until your case goes to trial. If your suspension was due to having a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or greater, a restricted license is only available after the first 30 days of your suspension has passed. This option is not available if you have refused chemical testing to determine your blood alcohol content level. The revocation period lengthens if a person has had prior DUI convictions. For one prior DUI conviction or refusal to submit to chemical testing, the penalty is a license revocation of 1 year. This penalty carries no opportunity for a restricted or temporary license for any reason. For two prior DUI convictions or refusals to submit to chemical testing, the license revocation time period is three years. This penalty gives offenders no opportunity for a restricted work permit. The penalty for three or more offenses is a license revocation period of five years. There is also no opportunity to apply for a restricted work permit during this period. Because of all of these possible penalties, consulting with an Alaska DUI lawyer is one of the best things you can do. Representing yourself may cause you to miss out on important deadlines and miss information that a legal professional would be able to use to strengthen your defense.

DMV License Revocation Hearing

If you are pulled over and charged with a DUI, you will receive a “Notice and Order of Revocation” from the law enforcement officer conducting the traffic stop. The day you are issued this order is the day that the clock starts ticking on the time you have to request a hearing on your revocation. You have 7 calendar days to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles and request a hearing in writing. If you do not meet this requirement, the license revocation will go into effect on the 8th day and you will have missed out on the opportunity to contest the revocation. You can deliver your written request directly to the Department of Motor Vehicles or send it to the DMV via the US Postal Service. If you choose to hand deliver the request, be sure to have someone in the DMV office sign something that shows the request was received. If you choose to use the mail, send the request certified so you can be sure the DMV received your request. In the event that the DMV claims they did not receive a request from you, having a signed certified mail receipt would prove that you did meet the requirement for requesting a hearing in the required time period. Be sure that your request is postmarked before the 7 day expiration date or your request may not arrive at the DMV on time.

Your license revocation hearing is very important to your DUI case. Even if you were not guilty of DUI and end up being not convicted or having the charges dropped, you will lose your license if you do not request a hearing within the 7 day period. Your lawyer may be able to successfully defend you against the revocation depending on what has happened with your case. This hearing also gives your attorney the opportunity to determine what information may come up at your criminal trial. Since the DMV hearing testimony is on the record, it can be very important to you at trial time. If you have been arrested for DUI, contact an Alaska DUI lawyer as soon as possible to help you save your license and defend you against criminal DUI charges.

Top 5 Reasons To Carry Guard Alaska Bear Spray While Outdoors

March 11th, 2020

One should never even entertain the idea of camping without Guard Alaska bear spray. The reasons for this should be obvious but here are, in my opinion, the top 5…

Reason no. 5 – Bears are stronger than you are. The bears found in North America, even the smaller black bears which only weigh on average of about 300 pounds, are all much stronger than you are and extremely capable of taking your life. Bear attacks are not very common but they do happen and when they do there is rarely anything short of a catastrophic injury or death as a result.

Reason no. 4 – Guard Alaska spray is extremely effective. Guard Alaska is so effective in fact that it is the only repellent registered by the EPA to repel all species of bear. After all, what good is having a tool of self defense against bears if the tool does not work? If you have any doubts about bear spray’s effectiveness in repelling bears I suggest you check out the multiple videos on YouTube of bear spray being tested in real life situations. Some studies have shown this product to be as effective, and in some cases more effective, than most firearms in repelling bears.

Reason no. 3 – Guard Alaska spray is much safer than alternative means of self defense against bear attack. Actually, aside from bear spray what else is there that would be at all effective aside from a firearm? And if I have to explain why taking a loaded firearm with you on a family camping trip might be somewhat unsafe then you have bigger problems than can be solved by reading this blog.

Reason no. 2 – Guard Alaska is environmentally safe. There are absolutely no ozone-depleting ingredients in Guard Alaska spray. That should be great news for any outdoor enthusiasts. What lover of the outdoors would want to be spraying something into the air that is destroying the outdoors?

Reason no. 1 – Last but certainly not least bear spray is a humane alternative to firearms for repelling a bear. Guard Alaska repellent, much like pepper spray for humans, is extremely effective and will cause pain and temporary blindness by way of swollen mucus membranes but will not leave any permanent or long lasting effects for the bear. Bears were technically here first and we’ve pushed them out of the vast majority of their native land already, let’s not kill them while we are at it shall we? Besides, bear attacks do not often happen because the bear is some sort of blood-thirsty monster. These attacks happen because a human has unwillingly, and perhaps unknowingly, crossed paths with a bear and the bear is frightened for itself or for its cubs.

Stay Safe,

Carl Vouer
