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.

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.

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
