When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability, and Surviving the Long Emergency, 2nd Edition

When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability, and Surviving the Long Emergency, 2nd Edition

There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe.

When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad.

Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on “Making the Shift to Sustainability,” which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) September 26, 2012

Edifecs Inc., one of the largest healthcare technology companies in the Puget Sound region, is the first winner of Seattle Business Magazines Tech Impact Awards in the healthcare category. The program recognizes companies and individuals that create or use information technology to significantly improve a company or industrys business performance or to provide an important public benefit. The Technology Impact Awards includes several categories, including enterprise, cloud, IT services, mobile applications, construction, education, consumer/retail, games and health. Seattle Business Magazine honored Edifecs for its healthcare software solutions, which directly address the industrys urgent need to drive down administrative costs, improve governance and achieve compliance with government mandates.

Edifecs mission is to help the healthcare industry dramatically simplify its administrative processes and cut waste out of the healthcare delivery system, said Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs. We have an incredible team at Edifecs that cares deeply about this mission and works hard every day to achieve it. We are honored to be among the other high-caliber companies that won in their categories and to represent the healthcare IT industry.

Edifecs helps its clients modernize their information transaction processing systems and simplify administrative functions, particularly those related to enrollment, claims and payment processing. This is important because the exchange of information among healthcare organizations greatly affects both costs and outcomes. Making the healthcare system more efficient requires improving the infrastructure for exchanging information between various entities in the healthcare value chain, and it can have a dramatic impact. For example, an efficiency level on par with the retail industry would result in savings of more than $ 200 billion for the healthcare system. Increasing the rate of electronic processing to 90 percent from the current 40 percent would save $ 6 billion or more across the industry.

Edifecs has been recognized for its rapid growth with several awards in 2012, including:
