Social innovation through fiction....though actually kinda true.

As I've said in some of my missions and quests (and maybe a few other places), I'm a youth services librarian, ergo, I've usually got my head in a book or two (or three or four....). Anywho, I came across a book (written for teenagers, but that doesn't mean people of different ages -older or younger - can't enjoy it) that I thought most of the agents here might appreciate...

The book I want to introduce you to is "The boy who harnessed the wind" by William Kamkwamba.

To give you… Continue

Jean-Francois Archambault - ACT1

For this mission, I took some time looking through the different social innovators that have been recognized through the suggested organizations. When I settled on searching through the recognized Akosha

Fellows, I decided that the person I would be most interested in shadowing

would be someone who had similar interests.

As a youth services librarian at a public library I am very interested in youth

Looking at all the different (though some similar) secrets of social innovation, my favourite of the secrets is one of Paul Polak's: think like a child - children have no limits to their thinking.

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.
