In Praise of Little but Great Ideas

A couple decided to tackle the problem of discarded metal containers used on ship

Sometimes, small is beautiful. I decided to show you how we can find heroes even in small contribution to social change. A couple from the province of Quebec, in Canada, decided to build their own house in huge metal containers. After 15 years of use, they are discarded instead of repaired.

Eating more and better : you can do it, we can help

Or: How I taught the love for carrots and how to grow them

The Year 2020

I currently study journalism because I think mass medias can be, and should be, a great way to educate people outside of the school system. Really, I see them as a possible mean to empower individuals and community, giving them essential informations on how things work and what's the social/economic/political/cultural/etc. context of actions and decisions that make up the news we see everyday.

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

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
