CLOUD SYNC ON MULTIPLE PLATFORMS
Like Spotify or YouTube, your subscriptions sync in the cloud so you can setup once for life and use the app on multiple devices. The cloud model also saves you bandwidth and battery by fetching feeds in the server instead of checking every publisher's server for updates.

Get fresh recommendations on your favorite topics, ready for immediate streaming or download. Our catalogue goes deep, with 500+ niche topics to follow. Not just "Tech", but "Android", "Gaming", "Programming", etc. Follow your favorite TV show, sport, industry, etc.
Subscriptions and Play Later lists proactively downloaded for offline use, with auto-cleanup. All highly configurable.
Browse shownotes for all episodes in the publisher's feed and immediately stream any episode or save it for later even if you're not subscribed. You can even search full shownotes for over 3 million episodes.
Resume where you left off, mark played, browse your history.
Your subscriptions import and export as OPML in case you ever want to move to another app #sadface.

The purpose of BSA Square Knots is to quickly identify the square knot patches that appear on Boy Scouts of America uniforms, especially while mobile. The requirements for each knot can be found online.
This application is not endorsed by the Boy Scouts of America.
Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts LOVE playing Games! As a scout leader they will be looking to you to show them how it is done, so take a deep breath and get ready to let your hair down...
There are roughly 600 games in this application. That's a bunch of games folks! If you played one game at each scout meeting every week, it would take you about 6 years to get through all of them. Put another way, at the current price on the market, you get roughly three games for a penny...not bad in this economy.
There are 5 sections in this application: Cub scout Games, Boy scout Games, Games for All Scouts, Games for Boys (by G.S. Ripley), and Scouting Games (by Lord Robert S.S. Baden-Powell). Those five sections have been further divided into a total 49 Sections more specific to the type of game; like Outdoor Games, Strategy Games, Knot Tying Games and so on.)
In future versions I intend to have a search by keyword (such as "Outdoor" or "Cub Scout"" and search by title such as "Capture the Flag" or ""Kim's Game"option.
A Few Tips about Games:
Games Are --
Lessons without teachers
Most of all games are fun
Through Games, A Scout
Learns new skills
Develops new interests
Learns to follow the rules
Learns fair play
Learns to wait his or her turn
Is taught respect for the rights of others
Scouts like games in which there is a sizable element of luck. They do not require prizes, nor do they seem to worry if the game is not finished. They like games which restart almost automatically, so that everyone is given a new chance. Scouts like games whereby they gain the reassurance that comes with repetition.
Remember, the success of a game period depends greatly upon leadership. A leader can challenge and persuade the shy Scout and channel the energy of the "showoff", making meetings fun for all.
Choosing A Game:
Know and understand the game.
Be prepared to teach the game.
Take into consideration: Physical arrangements
Abilities of the participants
Suggestions For Conducting Games:
Know the game well and the area needed before teaching it. Have all the necessary equipment on hand.
Remove all possible hazards from the game area.
Have the full attention of the group before trying to explain the rules of the game.
To introduce the game, name it, demonstrate it, ask for questions, then start it.
Always insist on fair play.
If a game is going badly, stop it, explain it again, then try the game once more.
Play, but don't overplay a game. A successful game will be more in demand if it is stopped while it is still being enjoyed.
Be alert to overexertion.
A Shameless Plug:
Being a Scout leader is very rewarding, but it is also a tremendous amount of WORK!

All participants in official Scouting activities should become familiar with the Guide to Safe Scouting and be aware of state or local government regulations that supersede Boy Scouts of America policies and guidelines. The Guide to Safe Scouting provides an overview of Scouting policies and procedures rather than comprehensive, standalone documentation. For some items, the policy statements are complete. Unit leaders are expected to review the additional reference material cited prior to conducting such activities.
In situations not specifically covered in this guide, activity planners should evaluate the risk or potential risk of harm, and respond with action plans based on common sense, community standards, the Boy Scout motto, and safety policies and practices commonly prescribed for the activity by experienced providers and practitioners.
Our international network of analysts provides impartial intelligence and security briefings, so that better informed citizens and civil society organisations can more effectively engage in peace and security debates and influence positive policy developments in these areas.
The Open Briefing app gives you free access to our intelligence feed, podcast, library, video and social networks.
