Making Indigenous Knowledge work to protect a Kenyan community

The indigenous knowledge project I reviewed was Viable institutional innovations with respect to community based natural resource management in developing and transitional economies which can be found here http://srdis.ciesin.org/cases/kenya-005.html



This case seemed like a great success on multiple fronts.



They were able to regain local control over their food choices. The power of a central government often can mean… Continue

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. :)

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

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.
