You don't have to be a scientist to save the environment!



What are YOU doing to save the environment?



This is a question I find myself pondering quite often. What am I doing to help save our beautiful planet? I think everyone needs to take a look at the impact we are having on the planet Earth. After doing some research for the past few months, I found that there are many…

Homeless in a First World Country

In the late 2000's the world has seen the effects of what has been called "The Great Recession." Starting in late 2007, a financial crisis began to stir within the United States. Financial institutions were taking part in lending practices that were considered reckless and unsustainable. The breakdown of these high risk loans began to expose the fact that many assets had been grossly over-priced, especially in the real estate market. People began to lose their job, default on their mortgages,… Continue

His company creates strong composite materials out of agricultural waste to proved an alternative to environmentally un-friendly materials such as Styrofoam and plastics. The energy used by his bio-materials is 1/10 of the energy used to create styrofoam.Not only that, the materials can be put in your home compost after it has served its purpose just to be re-used again. Its a… Continue

IMAGINE 1: 10 years from now...

10 years is a long time.



Its hard to even decide what I'm going to do with present issues. 10 years from now I hope to have finished with graduate school and obtained a career that i love. I plan on having my B.A. and Masters completed in Communications, Public Relations and Marketing. I'm halfway to my B.A. so that seems much more than reasonable. If I were called upon to help out in the Tokyo Food Crisis, i would hope my education and experience in the communications field would help… 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.

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.
