The seat was warm.

His music preceded him; a few surprisingly melodic snatches on a battered harmonica.

He was wrinkled; cubic zirconia studs in each of his large leathered lobes. Shoulders hunched

forward in a standard olive green overcoat, he staggered with the

off-beat roll of a hurrying subway car.

He dropped the arm that held the instrument to reveal a droopy under bite, proffering his other

grubby hand to a nearby passenger. The passenger, an… Continue

LEARN2: Nukes for Food in North Korea?

Although my passion lies somewhere down in the Caribbean (Hispaniola), I'm currently teaching in Seoul, South Korea, which is certainly a well-off city in one of the top performing countries in Asia. Despite its size and tumultuous history (it has been the continual brunt of invasion and occupation by other Asian giants), the south end of the Korean peninsula has made incredible strides in the past 50+ years of post-WWII modernity. Yet a few miles north of Seoul begins the impossibility (for… Continue

IMAGINE1: Dinner with Dominicans in 2020

I'm just sitting down to dinner with a Dominican Republic family as the sun sets over another long hot summer day. Solar generators are kicking on to light the dinner table, and plates of steaming fried rice with beans and fresh fruits and vegetables are piling our plates as we sit down. I'm passing through this way to visit old friends: almost family, really. I just finished another follow-up mission reporting on the microfinance success stories and slow reforestation across the border in… Continue

Boots on the Ground: the name of his blog says it all. Oh, there are millions of awesome people out there I could have chosen to stalk as I leech ideas and learn how to be a global citizen, but I always go back to Nicholas Kristoff. I started following the New York journalist on Twitter about a month ago, and since then have felt much more up-to-date on international affairs and practical developing world activism. His twice-weekly New York Times columns… 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

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***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.

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
