ACT[4] Water Security

I located the site for the North American 'Water for People', and joined. I sent out ecards to family and friends reminding them of my father's work as a civil engineer as he monitored waste water treatment plants in Northern California's rural communities and my role as a child as I accompanied him on some of these visits. It had a great impact upon me at the time so when the science fair projects were due, my own was a drawing of the complete…

LEARN[4] - Water Security

It is wonderful to be able to address issues related to access by all peoples to clean drinking water. During my childhood, I would go with my father to each of the waste water treatment plants in his district. These large water purification sites were used to analyze water, then the right amount of treatments are added, filteration takes place to remove large particulates, then aeriation and exposure to light were used to reuse water that came from sewers that brought back the community…

IMAGINE [3] POWER SHIFT-Solar Cookers and Money in the Bank

It is the Fourth of July-Independence Day, the year 2020, on the beach of Emerald Isle, North Carolina, where our family comes from all parts of the US and the World to celebrate our Country's Freedom and its Democracy. It used to be in my own day, that we would all go to a beach, park, or other open public space to BarBQue aka BBQ. We would cook steak, corn-on-the-cob and other vegetables wrapped in foil. The fuel of the times was simple, manufactored coals that had been moistened with…

LEARN [3] Power Shift-Monitizing Carbon offsets

I discovered David Palella and is wonderful solar powered cook stoves when I began to look at ways to improve the quality of health in Nigeria. I am particularly interested in nutrition and its impact on health and well being, so his use solar power to cook when that would otherwise not have been possible was a delight to find. Even more so because he developed a method to pay for the cost of the cooking…

Hi Lauro, thanks for welcoming and for your words. I'm won't loose my hopes.
Me too, I'm trying to always deliver the best resources I can find and, definitely, I'm becoming more and more commited to EVOKE's global mission, than to the points' thing. More and more, I'm getting in the NOTAGAME philosophy.
