Food of the Future, Or the Future of Food?

Humans have always had a taste for simple, locally grown produce. It is only with the rise of globilisation that food has become an international affair. We refer to french cuisine, or fine british dining, and to some the wierd and not so pleasant chinese dishes. Before the global revolution, food was local, regional and simple.

In the future I envision people of the world eating traditional dishes prepared from locally…

Food Security in South Africa, and especially Africa on a wh*** is global issue requiring input, help and innovative solutions from the global community. With the Western world's revolution to move from processed and chemically treated foods, to 'greener' organically grown foods, it is ultimately the poorer developing nations of Africa that stand to suffer. Farmers in these arid, water-scarce countries would rather opt to sell their best crops to giant European and North American importers…

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

Stinging Nettle

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**stances 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.
