New Idea - New Banner

Since today was "think day" I spent most of my time wandering around the city, just looking and watching.

You see, most of my issues with coming up with an idea were the things that I wanted to help find… Continue

The E-Mails have been Sent

So I have spent the morning constructing and sending out an introduction letter too the college, the United Way and the Rochester School District to ask for their support in this project.



While it is a small step it is the first of many that I will need to take in the 30 days that I have left to complete this personal mission of mine. The next 29 are going to be much tougher than copy/paste a letter.



Here is too the future. Let the negotiations begin. Oh, the stress but… Continue

Scholarships for Inner City Children - It's a Start

What: My plan, considering the last one came to an abrupt end, is to get at least one graduating inner city student an associates scholarship to my local community college who would not otherwise, for any number of possible reasons, be able to acquire the money needed to go.



Why: If you have read any of my last posts the answer to this question should come as no surprise. I believe that a poor education (and by poor I mean "lack of continued") is the source for so many other problems… Continue

Not So Original After All

So the Mayor got back to me last night and "respectfully" suggested that I check out the United Way since they are pretty much already doing what I was planning on doing. Son of a...



So my question now is "why isn't it working?" The educational system is still a bust. There are still people working 2 or 3 jobs just to get food on the table. The Crime rate is out of control. I mean, look at this:…

LEARN1- Social Innovator

My favorite, and perhaps most needed social innovation today, is "Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.)"This simple idea has two meanings. First, it shows that the injustice of poverty and instability does not have a cookie cutter answer. Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
