"As long as there is another living thing on the planet, aside from yourself, you are sharing, no matter where you are. :-) What makes it even easier is to be away from "modern" society of humans, but even in the city, where I am now, there…"
"Actually, that might be true for some people, but that's certainly not true for all people who live simply, and don't make a lot of money. I lived on about $2 a day last year (less than $700 in 2009), and I'm definitely not in…"
"I would totally agree. The women who pound stones into gravel in n. Uganda would agree as well. On a good day, they make about a dollar. A dollar! I can't even imagine the amount of energy put into their job and only getting a buck off it.…"
Living on such a small income ties in with simplicity. When one makes only $2 per day, it completely changes life in every single aspect. When one wakes up in the morning, the first objective for them would be to earn an income. In order to earn the measley $2/day, one must have the proper nutrients in order to provide themselves with sufficient energy to complete the tasks expected of them at their job. It is people who live with these kinds of conditions who truly understand what it means to…See More
Urgent Evoke works as a way to make you think deeply about the world, its condition, and the future of our world. The program forces you to think as deeply as you can about ways to improve the world we live in. Not only does it just make you think while you are participating on the computer, but it makes people think about how they live life as well. It makes you care more about the world than you probably could have ever imagined.
For season 2 of Urgent Evoke, I think that a great script idea would be to come up with some sort of theme. Or, maybe even just focusing on a more specifinc part of the world. It could even become a series like season 2, the far east, season 3 the aegean.
For Urgent Evoke, Season 2, I think a great idea would be to try and market the program to as many schools all over the globe. I was assigned to do this as a final/class project and I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. If more teachers and professors are aware of it and make it a part of an assignment, the word would spread like wildfire and would force many to unite in this wonderful lesson in life!
In the year 2011 when a pandemic flu strikes the nation, I would create a team of houswives to go into their homes and gather as many helpful household items that would be beneficial to people infected with the flu. The women would take the items they have and put them into packages and then send them to the places that need the most help. Some items might include ice packs, local medications, and cans of chicken soup to help in making the ill better.
It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
