In addition, throughout…

Girl's Science Education

Inspired by the Evoke Challenge, and inspired by The Girl Effect video/website, I decided to put my money where my mouth is, and contribute. I'm now a contributor to the building and stocking of a Science Lab in Matale, Uganda in collaboration with the Harambee Centre. The school is 57% girls, and more than half are HIV/AIDS orphans.

I feel that science education is critically…

NYC Coalition Against Hunger

It took me a while to think of what I would/could do to help the food security of people in New York City. Rather than giving to a food pantry or similar organization, I wanted to find an organization to support which was actively trying to fix the system here... get money and attention where it needed to go in order to help people become food secure, not just put some food in their bellies once.

I finally happened across the NYC…

Dealing with a Zombie Outbreak!

Last August, a Canadian researcher published an article on the mathematics of a Zombie Outbreak. Of course, the Zombie Outbreak was of the modern variety, rather than the Vodou variety, and what he found was that, based on his model, civilization would likely be doomed. In the same vein, let's consider how Ushahidi might be used to deal with such a development in New York.


Some things Ushahidi would be useful…

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
