With 40-degree temperatures and thick cloud cover, last Saturday was not ideal for a fishing excursion. That didn't stop Fishing with Vets, a nonprofit founded by Jeremy Colsen and Justin Bailey, from getting on the water and catching a few fish. Established in 2015, Fishing with Vets is a community of avid fisherman that provides a way for military veterans to get together and enjoy the outdoors. "Veterans were posting on Facebook for gear and we thought to ourselves, 'What can we do to help?'" Colsen said about starting up the nonprofit.
For the past 8 years, the Council on Foreign Relations' Center for Preventative Action has conducted a Preventive Priorities Survey. The annual documents provide U.S. policymakers a list of likely situations that will occur in the upcoming year, and ranks them by potential impact on U.S. interests. It is set up using a three-tier system where Tier I events are deemed high risk, Tier II are medium risk, and Tier III are low risk. The survey also gives the general public a great idea of what to pay attention to in the year ahead.
