Manual vacc** cleaner - Can we rebuild it? Do we have the technology?

After completing this week's ACT mission, it got me thinking a little. So here's the deal. I live in an apartment with horrible wall-to-wall carpeting. I also live in the Middle East. Here (and in…Continue

Shopping Day, 2020

It's March 10th, 2020; more importantly, it's Tuesday.

Tuesday is shopping day, and like other residents of my neighbourhood I use my computer or mobile device to access the website of our neighbourhood's co-operative online grocery store. We usually wouldn't order anything through the internet - there's really no alternative to touching the vegetables to see if they're fresh and to checking the expiry dates on milk products to make sure that you don't get swindled. But this…

Storing Excess Power for a Rainy Day

Out planet is full to the brim with energy we can utilize. Life, sunshine, rainfall, geological forces and wind are but a few, and we're constantly learning cheaper and more efficient ways to harness these energies to fuel up our power grid. The most promising energy resource for my country is solar energy. Solar water boilers have been widely used here since the 1960s, and the rooftops of rural homes are slowly being covered with photoelectic panels.

Here's the problem, though: solar…

December 2020 - A Very Oily Hanukkah

Today is the last evening of Hanukkah. Christmas is less than a week away, and the Christian areas of Jerusalem are already decorated with shining Christmas lights. My family is out today, like many others, to see festive lights of a different kind. Religious Jews are obliged at the evenings of Hanukkah to light a Menorah - a vessel of 9 candles - at their windowsill. More observant Jews do not use wax candles for this purpose, but instead…

Food Insecurity among West Bank Bedouins

Thanks to the Zionist ethos, which centred around building a Jewish economy based on farming, agricultural surplus in Israel is reasonably high, and according to the CIA factbook, except for grain, Israel is agriculturally self-reliant. White bread, milk and vegetables are subsidized by the government. Living in a rather poor city, I can testify that basic nutrition, comprised of white bread and fresh vegetables, is available to most if not all city dwellers, although being fed through… Continue

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
