Game On

While I enjoyed EVOKE, I hoped for more of a game element; EVOKE ended up being a social activist blog with a sci-fi/fantasy element. That element, however, did not keep my interest at the high levels it started at when I began the game. I would like to see the powers do something more than just look cool -- for example, the powers allow you to access certain parts of the website or could be used to buy costume pieces on an EVOKE virtual avatar.

Expert and Layperson Mental Models

When communicating in a crisis, a good social innovator needs to understand what the expert says and then put it in layperson terms. Often experts use two words with similar meaning that lay-people will group together for convenience. If the termolongy is not reformatted this can actually make things worse by increasing confusion.

A Dance for Water

Like many tribes did in ages past, we will do again. As they called for rain, so shall we. As they gathered in needed, we will gather in remembrance.



Evoke agents from around the world will gather in various public places to perform rain dances from their cultural histories. Onlookers will have the opportunity to consider the importance of water in our lives; hopefully, they will be able to imagine a time when public works that brought water to us at the turn of a dial were… Continue

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

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
