Collaboration Project: Teaching Skills to Empower Communities

I have an idea that is very broad, but I feel like it has a place somewhere out there. I'd like to create an education system to teach people skills that they can use to directly improve their local…Continue

in 2020 ...

2020. Just 10 years away, huh? Sounds like it's a lifetime from now.

In 10 years, I imagine myself spending all my work hours involved in my passion - education. I imagine myself coordinating an education system - a model that can be duplicated in any location. A system that teaches those in need basic skills to improve their own community. If they learn how to do better for their own family, then they can help their neighbors. And in a system like this, many communities…

My Heroes: Changemakers and Social Entrepreneurs at Ashoka

After reading through countless websites, I'm so pleasantly surprised at how much is out there regarding social innovation! It is so inspiring to see so many others being involved - whether it's locally, nationally, or globally.

I have chosen to follow Ashoka more closely. Ashoka chooses 'fellows' to be out in the world and implement the social innovation ideas. With 2,000 fellows working in 60+ countries, there is a lot of activity in this group. They are tackling many…

If social innovation is the key, how can we teach the people who are in need how to become social innovators themselves??

It's Saturday afternoon in San Francisco, CA and I am so lucky to be alive. The sun is shining, the weather is beautiful, people are bustling about the city and everyone in sight seems to have his and her basic human needs met.

As I sit in a cafe and think about social innovation and I learn more about what it means to think and act like an innovator, it occurs to me that the people out there who are much less fortunate than I are the ones who could benefit from learning…

Social Innovator: Always being a student ("Understand") and a teacher ("Share").

Save the world. Okay, let's do it. What is it going to take? I believe the education is the KEY to social innovation and solving the problems of the world. Education will equip us with vital information we must understand, and also allow us to share and teach new ideas and ways to others..

My thoughts on the secret of social innovation begin with constant exploration of the problems. One tip listed was "Understand." We have to understand the cultures, understand the needs.…

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***tances 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.
