The Muslim Community Are "Not" The Enemy!
After spending a few hours being made welcome in the home of one of my daughter's best friends I am here now to tell you that the media is manipulating you, making you hate and fear people from the Muslim faith. This is misinformation, lies and propaganda. Muslims are not our enemy. They are normal people with normal life wants and needs just like you and me.

I spent the weekend in the woods
So I spent last weekend in the woods. Virtually no cell signal, Mike's away from any built up area, just the six of us, four trainee army cadet instructors and two instructors. It could have been the perfect set up for a horror movie, luckily everything went according to plan.

A Matter of Trust
This is a rather old video blog which has been converted into a podcast, I converted it because I think the subject is still relevant. Trust, if you were to see someone in a secluded area, away from the public, and they looked like they had had an accident or in need of help would you go to help without a second thought or would you be more cautious? Im not sure how I would handle the situation, I would like to think I would help without a second thought but in reality, I am not too sure You can Stalk me at: The Blog: http://www.iJim.co.uk/ The Podcast: https://anchor.fm/iJim Twitter: http://Twitter.com/iJimPearson instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ijimuk/

Becoming more disconnected
This podcast is raw and unedited, published as is.. In this podcast I talk a out how we as a species will struggle in a grid down post apocalyptic situation because we have become so disconnected from the world around us, even though our technology has made the world a smaller place it seems so much more out of reach because of our technological advances.

Should We Have More Security Checks?
In this podcast I talk about something which is not post apocalyptic or related to horror movies. As part of my assessment to become an instructor in the UK Army Cadets I have to have a lot of security checks done to make sure I am not a risk. So far these checks and assessments have taken just over 5 month.  In this podcast I ask the question who dont other companies run the same checks on people who are applying for jobs where they will come into contact with children and vulnerable adults?  You can Stalk me at: The Blog: http://www.iJim.co.uk/ The Podcast: https://anchor.fm/iJim Twitter: http://Twitter.com/iJimPearson instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ijimuk/
