How I Built Stone Walls to Improve Food Security

To improve food security in my neighborhood, I built stone-walls on a sloped hillside near our home. The walls prevent erosion, allowing my family to grow herbs and vegetables in place of grass. Growing our food reduces transportation costs by limiting the number of times we travel to the grocery store. Because …

Yes, let's do chat sometime! Very interested in getting your thoughts on the Peace Innovation class (strangely I referred all sorts of people to both the FB and Peace Innovation cla**** but failed to audit them myself). Also advice on gardening is most helpful right now.

Saw your reference to persuasive technology. Did you study under BJ Fogg? I'm a researcher for BJ Fogg at Stanford, very interested in games, mass collaboration and improving the world. I'm the voice behind @PeaceDot on Twitter and FB and the new head of the Peace Innovation Lab.

... And I'm contemplating planting a more ambitious vegetable garden this spring.

Hey James,

I liked seeing some of the projects you have been involved in and I'm looking forward to hearing about the projects your planning once the snow melts (I can relate!).

If you would like to debrief on any of the process aspects of the projects you've been involved in you could submit it under a Special Agent Mission: Power of Process

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**stances 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.
