"well part of it is that they try to recreate what they did with dams in america in places that have totally different problems/environments/soil structures. like in afghanistan they thought they were doing people a favor with the irrigation water,…"

Social Capital.

Here's a term i hear thrown around alot, and i have grown fond of it. to me social capital is the resource one achieves from doing work that is outside of the market. work dedicated to making people happy or helping others survive emotionally or socially. the rewards of social capital are easily apparent when you think about it. a poor man with a good heart and a funny personality always has a roof over his head. social capital is chief in it's difference from traditional capital in that it is…See More

First Anniversary of the bar in 2020

the first Anniversary part will be rageful (the good kind). we'll have my friend's band and half priced drinks and tons of food from local gardens (the only cheap and delicious source of food in 2020) some of the drinks will be home distilled as well. it will be another oddly sunny globally warmed February in Portland, but it is night time now and we are all inside now, the light and heat coming from dim old tungsten filament light bulbs (retro, for style) and the wood stove in the… Continue

My love hate relationship with Bonneville dam

Bonneville dam was built by the army Corp of Engineers during the new deal along with several other dams. among the many people provided work by this… Continue

food security for me!

last year in blacksmithing class, while everyone else was making a cool knife, i made gardening tools. don't get me wrong, i love knives, but my grandfather has an extensive collection of them and gives them to me when he has too many. so i made tools. i made two hoes and a trowel.



today i used my hoe to weed a patch of garden and make furroughs for a patch of peas that my housemate Joel and his son planted. so by making that hoe i increased my own food security and that of everyone… Continue

Cian, thanks for the call to disengage from Panamerican's interrogation. I enjoy that kind of back and forth a bit too much, and often don't realize how toxic it can be to overall dialogue.

Thank you very much, Cian. I try not to write, or speak, unless I have something to say, and then I try not to get bogged down in the process of saying it--with varying degress of success... Enjoy your writing, photos etc.--thank you!

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
