opClarity is a new site

Preamble: opClarity delivers straight forward reviews and deals in an owner & consumer centered model.

opClarity cuts through the tape when it comes to review overload.

Our experienced team handpicks reviews of products, services and business all around the internet to give you the best information available. Too many reviews on sites that make businesses pay for placement create confusion. We intend to remedy this.

  • Review Support for the hearing impaired. A large task we have undertaken is our utilization of transcribing review videos. For those hard of hearing we hope that our video to text reviews are helpful. If you would like us to put a review in text please comment on that article, story or business in question. Many stores will subtitle their own product videos, but hardly ever will individual reviewers.

opClarity delivers unique interviews to the consumer from business owners about their products.

We really believe that part of  a review should be the owners speaking for themselves. Getting beyond the business hype and down to how they feel about their own businesses can help you the consumer make a decision. So, we will make it a point to get direct interviews with the CEO, Boss or Owner that you can read.

opClarity will NEVER use Yelp like tactics against businesses and consumers alike.

We intend to be incredibly open in regards to how we create revenue. This site will not sell advertising or rank certain businesses over others.  As we grow we will fairly, and equitably generate revenue by not making businesses compete for attention in ways that foster mistrust and anger.

My Patriot Supply 3 Day Food Unboxing

These wild swings in the stock market has a lot of people on edge. China, the backbone of the global economy these days is wavering. What will tomorrow bring? According to the average, we’re due for another recession and who knows how hard it will hit? Oil prices are crashing and with the government keeping interest rates at historical lows and pumping cash into the stock market, the future looks uncertain to say the least.

That’s why a lot of people are again starting to stock up on food and other supplies so they can make it through any period of chaos, political or economic, that may be on the horizon. And be prepared in general has the nice side effect of covering the bases for any surprises that may come around, like natural disasters.

My Patriot Supply has been a go-to webstore for preppers for a long time now. People interested in preparedness know they can rely on them for quality, both in terms of product and service.

How’s it going? Silver ,Guns and Preps. I figured while I was at it I might as well do an unboxing of prepping items. This is a pack from My Patriot Supply. It’s actually a 72 hour, 3 day food supply kit. They’re running a special.

They’re doing a 3 day supply for ten bucks and free shipping and a limit up to four, so I went ahead and bought four of them. I think everybody should at least have some kind of emergency food for any kind of emergency. Personally, that’s my own opinion.

Anyway, I got these just to put away in case I need them in case of emergency. When I say emergency I mean anything from tornado to earthquake, whatever natural disaster might be in your area. A flood. But I thought it was a pretty decent deal. Here they are. Here’s the 72 hour kit. I got four of these bad boys. Here’s a screen shot. The main thing I like is it’s made in the USA. Here’s what it’s got in it.

But, yeah, if you guys want any I’m sure the special’s still going. I got four of these nice packs. Mylar bags. And they have all the food – I believe they said they have oxygen absorbers inside these packages. I’ve heard of this company, I’ve heard good things. There are a million reviews out there on My Patriot Supply and you can take a look and if you wanted better details on what the foods taste like. Take a look, thanks!

It’s never too late to start preparing. Head on over the MyPatriotSupply.com now and buy some piece of mind. You never know when disaster is going to strike but you can make sure you’re ready when it does.

Silver Lungs Generator Kit Unboxing

Everyone’s becoming more and more conscious of their health these days. Whether it’s gluten allergies or concerns about super-bugs, there’s good reason to be concerned with wellness.

Which is why some people are turning to colloidal silver to help maintain a healthy body. Colloidal silver has a long history of being used as a disinfectant. Before the rise of antibacterial soaps, colloidal silver was a common way to kill bacteria and sanitize wounds.

For those into health and the do-it-yourself attitude, there are home kits available like this one from Silver Lung. With a package like this, you can get busy making colloidal silver for your own use right in your own home.

Preppers and people with survivalist leanings will also find such products useful, as emergency situations don’t always come with a fully stocked doctors office to manage your well-being.

Here we have an unboxing of a Silver Lung home kit. We’ve transcribed it out for easy browsing. This way you can get a sense of what you’re getting when you buy from Silver Lung.

A continuous shot of me opening the silver generating kit. It took about a month to get here. It weighs about ten pounds. It’s a way to produce my own ionic silver. Comes with an invoice. All these different nice professional brochure. Very nice so far. For the nebulizer. Instructions. Nice brush cleaner. Nebulizer. It’s in there, I can feel it. A water quality tester, electronic. Tells you the parts per million. Adapters. Comes with the batteries for the adapter, the plug for the beaker, and the cleaning kit for the silver rods and these might be the silver rods in the case. Excuse me. It’s the silver rods, two of them, seven gauge, very thick. Should give us thousands of batches. I don’t now what that is, we’ll find out later on. Everything is very well packed in Styrofoam. Before I take everything out I’ll just go over these things. Looks like we’ve got the glass beaker, 32 ounce bottle to put your preparation in after you’ve finished it. Eyedropper, sprayer and that’s the stuff to make the colloidal silver. Plus it comes with a checklist. Well, everything looks like it’s here. And this is what a silver generating kit looks like. Enjoy making your own. Bye bye.

That’s a quick tour. For more information, click on over to Silver Lung’s website. It’s never too late to prep for good health.

Clearlice Review

Kids get lice. It’s a fact. Kids catch lice faster than a soldier in a WWI trench (when a whopping 97% of soldiers got it!).

cooties lice pest soldiers - Copy

Even though it can feel embarrassing, it’s something that is bound to happen. But what to do when the inevitable happens? You have a lot of options out there, but if you do the research, you’ll see that most of the products out there are filled with all kinds of nasty chemicals.

That’s where Clearlice comes in. Clearlice is an all natural lice treatment. You care about your kids, and you probably care about what they put in their bodies, so why would treating lice be any different? Clearlice has a long track record of success and you can use it with a clear conscience.

Hi. my name is Scott and I just wanted to do this quick testimonial for Clearlice. My son, Nicholas, he’s over here playing games right now, was sent home this past school year with head lice and my wife and I weer absolutely horrified. The first thing we did was take off, go to the drug store and we got Rid, came home and applied it. Problem solved, right? Well, no, not so much. Within another week they were back and it spread through the family. My wife got them, I got them. I work in an insurance company, lots of people, very embarrassing to say the least. And the bad thing with Rid and stuff, the chemicals they use are absolutely crazy. We started looking online, came across Clearlice, it’s an all natural formula, works great. Within one week they were done, I mean taken care of, and it really did the job. So I just wanted to say a big thank you to Clearlice. And anybody out there, if you have kids you’re bound to have this problem. Just check out this product, it’s really good and I highly recommend it.

Clearlice has a loyal customer base and they inspire many testimonials. They also get consistently high ratings on Amazon. Just a quick search of YouTube and Google will turn up many positive reviews, many of them practically raving with praise for the product. So down with lice and up with Clearlice!

Thea Thea Baby Bags Review Tour

Let’s see what we have on the web in terms of reviews of Thea Thea baby bags. A good place to start, of course, is the review we already feature, which we’ve transcribed for you. But what else is there?

If you want to get a quick video tour of some Thea Thea baby bags, you could swing over to the Thea Thea YouTube page. They’ve got a few short videos that feature their products, like this one. Watch the bags spin in eerie silence.

A quick Google search turns up this review at the NapTime Reviewer. Cristen gives us a nice review with lots of photos. She likes it.

Check out her description:

 It’s obvious that the new Madison Baby Bag from Thea Thea is chic and classy, but my love for this bag goes beyond the surface.  This bag offers lots of storage space for everything you need to keep yourself and baby happy and that is what’s most important (depending on who you ask).

You can also head over to Thea Thea‘s Amazon store and see what customers have to say in their reviews section. But don’t wait too long to make your purchase. Baby’s coming and baby won’t wait!

My Patriot Supply 72 Hour Emergency Food Supply Review

Yesterday we spent a few minutes taking a quick overview of the 72 hour emergency food supply from My Patriot Supply. Today, let’s take a closer look and see what you get in this package.

As you know, the world is a chaotic place these days. The markets are unreliable, wages are stagnating, wars are breaking out and the climate is doing all kind of crazy stuff. And then you have your standard natural disasters to be concerned about. Getting set up with some emergency food that you can store long-term is a pretty good idea, just to be safe.

Flamengishta from YouTube is going to take us on a tour of the “Patriot Pantry 72 hour kit” from MyPatriotSupply.com. Let’s have a look.

Ok, guess what I got in the mail? I got my Patriot Pantry 72 hour kit. I got four of these big packages. Each of these packages includes four smaller packages, as you can see here. One of them is four servings of granny’s home style potato soup, four servings of travelers stew, four servings of blue ribbon creamy chicken rice, four servings of liberty bell potato cheddar soup.

So sixteen servings. I’m not sure how you would divvy those out for a 72 hour kit and I’m definitely going to assume this is for one person. Well, I am cooking a flagship meal,which the person taking my order was their best one. She said it was really good and I believe them, it looks really yummy. But this is the blue ribbon creamy chicken and rice. The package did not come with an oxygen absorber like it said it would so we’ll find out if it’s good, it looked really fresh.

Just looking at the packages here, the creamy chicken rice that I’m cooking right now contains four half cup servings and those are 490 calorie servings. So here’s your half cup. Does that look like a serving for you, it looks like a serving to me, I guess. Now, 490 calories for a meal. Now I’m no dummy, but I know the average human consumes around 2000 calories a day. So, great, maybe one of these throughout the day, four times a day. This one’s a 190 calories for its quarter cup serving. Here’s a quarter cup for ya. That’ll fill me to the gills. Here’s another one. Third cup for 270 big ones. And here’s another third cup serving for that one. So, here’s my math. Looks like 1140 calories for these third, third, quarter and half cup servings are gonna keep a grown man like myself fed for a day? That’s interesting.

Anyway, this is definitely not for 72 hours. Even if I was going to eat the whole pouch, which it looks like I’m going to go ahead doing. That’ll definitely feed me for a day these four pouches. For three days? Not a chance. I think these are better suited to be supplementals for actual meals because this is not a 72 hour kit by any means. This is a nice accessory kit for a couple days, maybe, when you have other food with it.

Anyway, I’m sure they’re going to taste good. Can’t wait to get started on it. Potato soup, looks good, this cheddar soup, this is the one I’m cooking, chicken and rice, and travelers stew. I don’t think preparing soups for a 72 hour kit is realistic or smart. It’s not a 72 hour kit, it’s misleading. But it sure looks good!

Checking the comments on flamengishta’s video, the consensus is that these are tasty but should be used as a supplement for other food you have on hand. Probably not the best for when you’re on the go, but if you’re at home they would be a good part of a bigger meal.

Check out what else My Patriot Supply has on hand to fill out your emergency pantry.

Rave Ready Company Interview

It ain’t easy to get an interview with RaveReady‘s Raymond Stone (LinkedIn profile) but we managed to find one. A guy like Stone has a lot of interests, but in this chat with ElectronicLife.com, he goes a bit into the philosophy and history of his company.

We’ve snipped out the relevant bit here, but make sure to head over to ElectronicLife.com for the rest of what really is a fascinating interview with one of the movers and shakers in the rave fashion scene.

Image via electroniclife.com

A’Damaged Pro – What’s the story behind RaveReady being founded?

Raymond Stone – The one moment that directly brought RaveReady.com into existence was a conversation with my old boss, he became an unknowing mentor. I had left the military and was hired by the owner of large military/police supply website to handle their magazine advertisements, web design, and some other things. One day we were talking about how he started his company he explained that in life you either work for yourself and do what you want, or you work for someone else and you do what they tell you.  That was the day I decided I was going to find something I loved and build it, just like he had done. Raves and underground parties were already a part of my life so once I realized that there were no “rave” stores and there was a need it was easy.

A’Damaged Pro – What role do you think your military background has played in your prevailing attitude towards business? Are there any particular skills that you acquired in the military that you feel have been instrumental in your success?

Raymond Stone – I have to give all the credit to my parents. My mom worked three jobs and my dad worked and was always finding ways to do side jobs in construction. They taught me about hard work at a young age.

I can credit the military with my bluntness and my strong attitude.

A’Damaged Pro – What is the most rewarding part of your job? Most challenging part?

Raymond Stone – I think getting the right product in our warehouse is the hardest thing right now, and it relates to the maturity and growth of the mainstream markets.

There are so many companies starting up that they are just saturating the market with poorly made products. We spend a lot of time curating our products and it’s increasingly difficult to find the “good” stuff. We’re constantly searching for the brands who are rooted in the community and who are trying to do something a little different.

Also, merchandising is such a new concept with this type of music that very few artists (djs, producers) are interested in it beyond putting it on their own websites. It really is a way for artist to share themselves with the audience, who already loves them, in a new way.

The most rewarding parts are when we overcome those challenges and eventually see that stuff on the dance floor. There is more than one product or brand that we have helped grow so when we see it out there it’s really exciting to me.

A’Damaged Pro – How does it make you feel when you see people in your wares at an event/festival?

Raymond Stone – It’s really amazing! I really don’t have the words for it.

Fascinating stuff. If you want more, you can click through to the rest of the interview. You may also find Raymond Stone’s blog worth checking out. He writes at RaveReady.com and covers a variety of topics related to the rave scene and business. Get to know the man! Also, don’t miss our transcribed video review of RaveReady’s fluffies.
