Secret plan not so secret

I did some digging around on the interwebs regarding emergency response plans in Iceland, considering that Katla may well erupt soon and make our lives interesting.



I started with the Search & Rescue organization, SAR Iceland. They didn't have that much info in English on their page, so I e-mailed them to ask about their disaster response plan. They directed me towards the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management, who have a nice… Continue

Living on the edge... of a volcano

I guess by now everyone knows about the troublesome volcano under the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. And most have heard the speculation that Katla is the next volcano to go off. If that happens, things in Iceland will be a lot more dire than now, as Katla is a notorious troublemaker in the volcano world.



In the event of the eruption, a system like Ushahidi would help greatly in the evacuation and search and rescue efforts. I'm attempting to draw a road map of the eruption.

Clean energy

Since energy in Iceland is already very cheap and efficient, there really aren't many ways for me to make it even more so. Here's what I'm doing now:
- using low-power light bulbs and only turning the lights on when I really need it
- turning off the monitors at home and at work when I'm not using the computer
- participating in the Clean Energy project on World Community Grid

Turning my kittens vegetarian

I'm starting a home garden with vegetables and herbs, much to my kittens' delight, who love munching on vegetables (don't ask me why). This is quite a challenge in Iceland, given the cold climate, but I have a back-up plan: getting some wooden boxes with glass lids for growing small plants, since sunlight is more than abundant during Icelandic summer.



My company also has a yearly food drive for poor families, I am going to find or make a collection of cheap recipes to include with the… 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

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.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.
