Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Episode 3 CODE PHRASE: "Wood already touched by fire is not hard to set alight."

It's an old Ashanti proverb:  "Wood already touched by fire is not hard to set alight." What do you think this code phrase means to the EVOKE Network?

I understand that those social entrepreneurs, who already strive for certain public causes, will not remain indifferent, and will undertake drastic measure, whenever there is a threat to human life, in the form of emerging crises and challenges.
Ari, I agree, and just have answered in the same vain to another article.I have worked for over 30+ years worldwide on projects from funding organisations and the conclusions is simple, putting money in is not enough, putting technology in is not enough,connecting people with each other is part of the solution.
We cannot change the world, but we can try to make a difference.obstacles are every where.i still believe that communication and education will bring us a step closer to achievement.Looking forward to discuss this in more detail

I agree with Daniel. ...

I think this code phrase to the Evoke Network means that when things get hard, you have to kept on trying and soon you wil realized it's not that hard.

This proverb means that if something is already started, it is easier to finish. If you have to complete a wh*** entire project it is harder then completeing something that has already been started. For example, if someone creates half of a robot, it is easier to finish then starting from scratch.

I think it means if your inspired, it's not hard to achieve your goal.

I think the Ashanti proverb, "Wood already touched by fire is not hard to set alight." means if you have done bad things before you are more accustomed to them, and might fall back on them easier. For example, if someone did something bad, and then are good for a while, if they were tempted again (depending on the circ**stances) they would be more eager to doing the bad thing.

Of course it depends on the bad thing, someone could learn from there experiences to.

I think it means that a subject that has already tried to been solved will be easy to ignite again.

I think that it means that if there is a problem it can spread fast, but it can be very hard to try to come up with a solution let alone actually set it in motion.

I think that the proverb means that if once you fall into a habit, you are likely to fall back into that pattern again. ( Old habits die hard) To continue on a path that has already been made is not a hard thing to do. If you are determined, it is much easier than to do something 1/2 heartedly.

I believe this code phrase means that when something is already started it doesn't take much to keep it going and finish it (what you have started). In this case if you touch wood to fire you don't really have to do anything else to cause it to completely catch on fire. It does the rest on its own.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
