Scouts -Bivouac Adventure – Autumn 2016

As part of our Survival Skills badge we are having an overnight camp from Saturday 5th November to morning of Sunday 6th November. No tents needed, we will be building shelters in Ballycastle Forest and sleeping in them overnight. Drop-off at the Ballycastle Forest Car Park on Drumavoley Road at 12:30pm (have an early lunch before you come). This will give you 3-4 hours to get building your shelter before it gets too dark.

Ballycastle Forest

 

Essentials you MUST bring in a single rucksack that can be carried by you on your back:

  •  Sleeping Bag
  • Bivouac bag (big plastic bag that your sleeping bag goes inside) (See bivi bag here on Amazon)
  • Torch (head torch ideally, but any torch is fine)
  • Warm wooly jumper and Woolly Hat (a warm hat is VERY, VERY IMPORTANT, you will be wearing this all night to keep your head warm) and a warm pair of gloves.
  • Waterproof coat & Wellington boots recommended
  • Spare socks
  • Wear your scout scarf
  • A metal or enamel mug (NOT plastic)
  • Some toilet paper / Baby wipes
  • Knife and/or axe

Food will NOT be only what you can catch or forage in the woods on this first overnight. A local butcher will be providing some ready-butchered game for us to cook on sharpened sticks for evening meal and breakfast the following morning. Please DO NOT send any other sweets/drinks as these are not allowed as part of the survival skills badge work. We will be making nettle or pine needle tea to have as a hot survival drink before bed.

Collection from same car park at 9:30am Saturday morning. Please do not bring phones or electronic devices as it is highly likely they will get lost or damaged.

NB. This is a survival skills camp, in true Bear Grylls style it will be muddy, wet and cold. It will not be a luxury camp, however it will be amazing fun!

SQL Nationalities Table (SQL format)

In the same way that getting a list of countries of the world can be tedious when developing a web-based system or website, nationality is one of those drop-down list boxes that is very time-consuming to populate behind the scenes. In many cases most developers resort to the copy/paste from Wikipedia method. So after doing that, I decided to export the SQL so that you don’t have to!

CREATE TABLE `settingsNationalities`
`NationalityID` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`Nationality` varchar(200) DEFAULT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`NationalityID`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

and then run the insert query below: (take care that the single quotes don’t get changed into back-ticks meaning that the ones with spaces won’t run)

INSERT INTO ‘settingsNationalities’ VALUES (1,’Afghan’),(2,’Albanian’),(3,’Algerian’),(4,’American’),(5,’Andorran’),(6,’Angolan’),(7,’Antiguans’),(8,’Argentinean’),(9,’Armenian’),(10,’Australian’),(11,’Austrian’),(12,’Azerbaijani’),(13,’Bahamian’),(14,’Bahraini’),(15,’Bangladeshi’),(16,’Barbadian’),(17,’Barbudans’),(18,’Batswana’),(19,’Belarusian’),(20,’Belgian’),(21,’Belizean’),(22,’Beninese’),(23,’Bhutanese’),(24,’Bolivian’),(25,’Bosnian’),(26,’Brazilian’),(27,’British’),(28,’Bruneian’),(29,’Bulgarian’),(30,’Burkinabe’),(31,’Burmese’),(32,’Burundian’),(33,’Cambodian’),(34,’Cameroonian’),(35,’Canadian’),(36,’Cape Verdean’),(37,’Central African’),(38,’Chadian’),(39,’Chilean’),(40,’Chinese’),(41,’Colombian’),(42,’Comoran’),(43,’Congolese’),(44,’Congolese’),(45,’Costa Rican’),(46,’Croatian’),(47,’Cuban’),(48,’Cypriot’),(49,’Czech’),(50,’Danish’),(51,’Djibouti’),(52,’Dominican’),(53,’Dominican’),(54,’Dutch’),(55,’Dutchman’),(56,’Dutchwoman’),(57,’East Timorese’),(58,’Ecuadorean’),(59,’Egyptian’),(60,’Emirian’),(61,’Equatorial Guinean’),(62,’Eritrean’),(63,’Estonian’),(64,’Ethiopian’),(65,’Fijian’),(66,’Filipino’),(67,’Finnish’),(68,’French’),(69,’Gabonese’),(70,’Gambian’),(71,’Georgian’),(72,’German’),(73,’Ghanaian’),(74,’Greek’),(75,’Grenadian’),(76,’Guatemalan’),(77,’Guinea-Bissauan’),(78,’Guinean’),(79,’Guyanese’),(80,’Haitian’),(81,’Herzegovinian’),(82,’Honduran’),(83,’Hungarian’),(84,’I-Kiribati’),(85,’Icelander’),(86,’Indian’),(87,’Indonesian’),(88,’Iranian’),(89,’Iraqi’),(90,’Irish’),(91,’Irish’),(92,’Israeli’),(93,’Italian’),(94,’Ivorian’),(95,’Jamaican’),(96,’Japanese’),(97,’Jordanian’),(98,’Kazakhstani’),(99,’Kenyan’),(100,’Kittian and Nevisian’),(101,’Kuwaiti’),(102,’Kyrgyz’),(103,’Laotian’),(104,’Latvian’),(105,’Lebanese’),(106,’Liberian’),(107,’Libyan’),(108,’Liechtensteiner’),(109,’Lithuanian’),(110,’Luxembourger’),(111,’Macedonian’),(112,’Malagasy’),(113,’Malawian’),(114,’Malaysian’),(115,’Maldivan’),(116,’Malian’),(117,’Maltese’),(118,’Marshallese’),(119,’Mauritanian’),(120,’Mauritian’),(121,’Mexican’),(122,’Micronesian’),(123,’Moldovan’),(124,’Monacan’),(125,’Mongolian’),(126,’Moroccan’),(127,’Mosotho’),(128,’Motswana’),(129,’Mozambican’),(130,’Namibian’),(131,’Nauruan’),(132,’Nepalese’),(133,’Netherlander’),(134,’New Zealander’),(135,’Ni-Vanuatu’),(136,’Nicaraguan’),(137,’Nigerian’),(138,’Nigerien’),(139,’North Korean’),(140,’Northern Irish’),(141,’Norwegian’),(142,’Omani’),(143,’Pakistani’),(144,’Palauan’),(145,’Panamanian’),(146,’Papua New Guinean’),(147,’Paraguayan’),(148,’Peruvian’),(149,’Polish’),(150,’Portuguese’),(151,’Qatari’),(152,’Romanian’),(153,’Russian’),(154,’Rwandan’),(155,’Saint Lucian’),(156,’Salvadoran’),(157,’Samoan’),(158,’San Marinese’),(159,’Sao Tomean’),(160,’Saudi’),(161,’Scottish’),(162,’Senegalese’),(163,’Serbian’),(164,’Seychellois’),(165,’Sierra Leonean’),(166,’Singaporean’),(167,’Slovakian’),(168,’Slovenian’),(169,’Solomon Islander’),(170,’Somali’),(171,’South African’),(172,’South Korean’),(173,’Spanish’),(174,’Sri Lankan’),(175,’Sudanese’),(176,’Surinamer’),(177,’Swazi’),(178,’Swedish’),(179,’Swiss’),(180,’Syrian’),(181,’Taiwanese’),(182,’Tajik’),(183,’Tanzanian’),(184,’Thai’),(185,’Togolese’),(186,’Tongan’),(187,’Trinidadian or Tobagonian’),(188,’Tunisian’),(189,’Turkish’),(190,’Tuvaluan’),(191,’Ugandan’),(192,’Ukrainian’),(193,’Uruguayan’),(194,’Uzbekistani’),(195,’Venezuelan’),(196,’Vietnamese’),(197,’Welsh’),(198,’Welsh’),(199,’Yemenite’),(200,’Zambian’),(201,’Zimbabwean’);

MySQL Countries Of The World Table in SQL

Sometimes we need a list of all countries, and whilst searching Wikipedia and copy and pasting is fine, it can take a long time and is tedious, so here is an SQL Country List to copy and paste.

 

CREATE TABLE `settingsCountries` (
`CountryID` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`CountryCode` varchar(2) NOT NULL DEFAULT ”,
`CountryName` varchar(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT ”,
PRIMARY KEY (`CountryID`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=1 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

….and then insert all the items
