A Social Innovator

I have picked Bruce Crowther as a social innovator to follow. I found him through Fairtrade's 'The Little Book of Swap' which I got at a Fairtrade coffee morning during Fairtrade Fortnight.

Bruce Crowther campaigned for his hometown, Garstang Lancashire, to become the first Fairtrade town - "Every time you buy a Fairtrade product you're not only helping 7 million farmers and their families, you're also sending a signal that you don't agree with the current system".

My Favourite Social Innovation Secret

My favourite social innovation secret is no. 7 from Amy Smith's 'Rules for Design in the Developing World': "Provide skills, not just finished technologies"

I think this is important for sustainable development - you need to help people to help themselves, otherwise they just stay stuck in a cycle of poverty dependant on others to survive. This needs to be considered when developing ideas because they will be of no use in the long run if they are not… 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

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.
