"To answer this question, you can look at those who do ride their bikes to and from work. Find out what makes people feel compelled to bike, and then find ways to give other people those same things."

The East-West Corner in Kissena Corridor Park Gardens

They will have a big celebration to mark the 100th year of gardening there.Take a look at our videos from the first weeks of this effort:…See More

"I'm not thinking of moving. We've learned that content is important -- not just functionality. We are working with Bill Fitzgerald at Funny Monkey... and we would like to see if we could add some game functionality like evoke has. "

Mass Transit in a Crisis in NYC

No matter what crisis hits NYC the mass transit system will probably shut down. One of the memories I have from 9/11 is that of people walking everywhere. No matter what the crisis, it will stop mass transit. To be resilient, we need to learn to get places without subways and buses and cars. We need a system of bikes and walking paths and other alternatives.

What would have to change if everybody rode their bikes to and from work?

Here's a map of my daily commute via bike. It may seem a little crazy, and maybe it is just a coincidence of history, but I've been biking or running to and from work ever since 2002. I started running right after 9/11, slowly increasing my distance until I was able to bike or run quickly enough to… Continue

Hi Paul, thank you for the invitation; enjoyed all the conversation and insights. You are working on some very interesting projects, with young people who are fortunate to have such a flexible and innovative teacher. Hope the possible photo collaboration and share with New Zealand occurs... Congratulations on your ongoing broadcast sessions. May all your gardens grow well--including the one in Queens. Thanks again, shout out to your colleagues and students, Michele

hello paul, 9 pm tomorrow night, 14 April (eastern time zone?) sounds fine; I will be happy to help. There are others on evoke also with lots of gardening experience (don't know about their availability: Ursula Kochanowsky and Nick Heyming among others.) My little guys might wake up but hopefully won't cause a commotion! I will look forward to it. want to send me an inbox message with contact details? thank you again. best, michele

Hi Paul, I actually have to walk my 2 little boys to school at 9 am, and then am staying to read with my 1st grader's class (and our pre-school girl) for an hour or so. I don't actually have the tech equipment to skype here (just relocated back to US from Japan, but perhaps we can figure out how to chat at some point? Otherwise, I will be happy just to read blogs from you and your students as I have time--maybe you could send me a message with links of some you would like read specifically--or I will just rotate reading as always... I thank you for your offer--and if there is some way to help your students, I am happy to reach out!! Great work--thank you for being such a great teacher and guide. Best regards, Michele

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

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. 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.

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
