Making Indigenous Knowledge work to protect a Kenyan community

This case seemed like a great success on multiple fronts.

The shocking state of affairs in Democratic Republic of Congo

The article I chose was http://www.unaids.org/en/knowledgecentre/resources/featurestories/archive/2010/20100511_drc.asp



While this article was seemingly one of hope I quickly had to ask myself what was the reason to look for success? A national initiative sounded like a good thing but in the same article it pointed out facts so shocking that I had to question any claims of… Continue

Why thank you. I was lucky because I grew up listening to my parents both speak Urdu/Hindi (basically the same thing) and Punjabi. Due to this it was very easy for me to learn Spanish in high school, and then French is a lot easier because of my Spanish background. I'm currently learning Quranic Arabic, so it would be too helpful if I visit an Arabic speaking country, but maybe one day I will learn conversational Arabic too as it has given so many words to Urdu.

Yes, the sun is gone, but hey, there's no snow!

I see you work at the U of M. How do you like it? My brother was a Philosophy/Physiology student there seven or so years ago. :)

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

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
