EVOKE Season 2 - my two cents





Evoke Season 1 was a really interesting experience. I learned a lot, and hopefully shared a few ideas of my own. Here are my thoughts as Season 1 wraps up.



What worked



The topics for each mission were great, really diverse and interesting. The multimedia, multi-faceted aspect of each week's topic (graphic novel, text explanations, forum discussions, ways to investigate further / act /… Continue

Managing Panic - Public Trust

Public trust is a big issue



When we're thinking of behavioral health and emotional readiness in the

context of panic, we don't have a ready-made framework of measures and

countermeasures that are understood.

What I'm having for dinner on March 10, 2020

In my post-apocalyptic 2020, peak oil, bio-engineered epidemics, widespread strife and economic collapse mean that virtually all food is sourced locally. No more Florida oranges, or Kobe beef, at least not in my neighborhood. The cost of getting the food across the country or across the world, without it spoiling, would be a literal fortune.



(What can I say, I just finished reading Paolo Bacigalupi's The Wind-Up Girl :)

Case Study: Using indigenous medicine demand to power reforestation efforts in Sichuan, China

I read about:

"INTEGRATION OF QIANG ETHNO-BOTANICAL KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTICES INTO A REFORESTATION PROJECT, AND RESTORES A DEGRADED WATERSHED IN CHINA"

On the KIVU case study page (no direct link, you just have to scroll or search for it, unfortunately).



I also found more details on the case at http://www.unesco.org/most/bpik15.htm, including budget, and some brief analysis on things… 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***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
