Amongst the frenzy that is going on here on EVOKE, I ask you, my fellow EVOKEians to please join me tomorrow, Thursday, April 8th, for one day without shoes. It will be something not only to indirectly bring our community together, but it will also give you the opportunity to make a difference.
One day without shoes is hosted by TOMS shoes. If you don't know about the company already, please read my very first blog post. It was about the founder,… Continue
To bring importance to the water crisis, I would organize a water fast. In fact, this could be during the month of Ramadan. Ramadan is so beneficial to me, and I think that everyone who can should participate in it, regardless of their religious background. This would not only conserve a large amount of water, but it would force people to think about what it is like to live with little water. I think this would bring the idea closer to home and make more people conscious of this problem. If it… Continue
It is 2020, and I am celebrating Eid in a way that I never thought would be possible before. Today, in the new mosque, I noticed that the entire room was lit by natural light. There were huge windows everywhere. This was not the most impressive part though. (I hope this doesn't offend anyone) Everyone was doing wudu without water! Talk about conservation, imagine how much water it will save now that this group of people are doing wudu so unconventionally.
And no, I had changed my mind about being a veterinarian during my freshmen year of college. Apparently my deductive reasoning for wanting to be a vet (Paul likes seeing animals treated nicely. Veterinarians treat animals nicely. Therefore, Paul should be a veterinarian.) was not valid :)
And was I accepted to Harvard? No, I wanted to be a veterinarian when I first entered college so I just applied to the programs at the University of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Purdue (I must have been a Big Ten type of person; though I am incredibly excited (and jealous :) of your opportunity this summer at Harvard! If by the odd chance your program has anything in the description about getting to bring along an extra person for free, you know who to ask :)
600 miles? That's like a warm-up lap :) My family has a cabin up in northern Wisconsin & I used to go to the boundary waters for canoeing up in Minnesota so perhaps the ride really wouldn't seem that bad--though I think I'd opt for a car...
"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"
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
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
