I was studying this use of human manure as a way to transform toxic sources of water poisoning in rural areas of Uganda into a way to improve suffering soils. The issue of poor water quality in the areas where I was working posed a particularly acute and complex problem which could not be solved through human manure.

Social Innovation: 2020 is calling me and I'm right in the action

I'm in my small four walled office trying to ignore the drip, dripping of rain water falling into the pan from the leaky corrugated iron roof. One of our students is working on putting up a rain water harvesting system for this tin shack soon, but resources are tight. I scowl- I feel bad for each drop that washes away soil that could be going into a thirsty mouth or root. I'm so proud of them! We took designs of rain water harvesting systems that we saw in villages…

Megan, your comment on Joe Sutton's post on women's rights was very moving. I'm so in awe of the work you are doing -- carry on! (And by the way, what server do you play on? I'm on Khadgar.)

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
