Fusion Power

This has been getting some media attention lately, but I thought I would share this with the community here. This summer, scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California hope to use the world's largest and most powerful laser to create a sustainable fusion reaction. What was once science fiction may become fact sooner than expected. If successful, this experiment could potentially create a powerful new source of sustainable electrical energy. More information can be found… Continue

Disaster Preparedness

For this week's act, I took a very simple step to help me and those in my neighbors prepare in the event of an emergency situation. I prepared an emergency supply kit. The California Department of Health has some handy guidelines on creating one for yourself, which can be found at… Continue

Disaster Recovery in San Francisco

San Francisco, like much of California, is in an area which is particularly vulnerable to strong earthquakes. The area has been nearly leveled by earthquakes in the past, and it could happen again. Luckily, strict building codes mean that most of the city's structures are designed with earthquake safety in mind, but a sufficiently strong quake could still be devastating.

Ushahidi could be an important part of recovery in the aftermath of a quake. It could be used to share essential… Continue

Evoke @ Vittana

I've been really inspired by the work of Riko Kamachi (http://www.urgentevoke.com/profile/RikoKamachi) in taking the initiative founding and leading the EVOKE team at Kiva. For those who have not yet heard of them, Kiva is an outstanding organization using microloans to finance entrepreneurs throughout the developing world. It's a group that does a lot of good, and the EVOKE @ Kiva team really seems to have gotten people even more… 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

Stinging Nettle

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
