Local, Organic, Vegetarian.. you know the drill

I imagine that I will be growing my own vegetables in planter boxes either outside my window or in my yard (if I'm lucky enough to have one). If I am living in California at that time, I will be able to grow some berries or fruits (space permitting). The grains and protein for my meals will come from local farmers and farmers markets in the area. Eating locally and organically (and maybe even vegetarian!) will hopefully become the status quo throughout the USA since it supports the local… Continue

Crank it out, work it out

You may have heard of the hand-cranked laptop pioneered by MIT's Nicholas Negroponte for "One Laptop Per Child," seen here:

This innovation has always impressed me. You don't need a manual to know how to use it; it's not dependent on sunlight, outlets, or anything beyond your own ability to turn a crank. One minute of cranking provides ten minutes of use. While this may… Continue

Keeping in mind human nature

In psychology we find that people are naturally resistant to change. We

tend to appreciate routine and are attracted to the familiar. If we can

find innovative solutions built on practical techniques and familiar

strategies, the public is more likely to embrace these solutions and

benefit from them. Stick with what people know.



For example, if you are trying to provide water-management solutions

for a farming community, the community if more likely to respond… 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

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.
