hey! how you doinqq!

From exhibit 1 my favorite secret is by Amy Smith on rules for design in the developing world because there are alot of people who spends money like it's no tomorrow. People are struggling and they need a budget. So i think that spending $2.00 a day would probaly help them get used to struggling.

2020

It is Halloween night in 2020 and bright decorations are shining everywhere. Kids are running from house to house ready to get candy but they remember to wipe their special shoes on the mat. They know that if every one does this, the kinetic energy will be able to power all the wonderful decorations. All over the country kids do this, powering Halloween through a little action. Saving power from one night may seem little, but this happening all over a wh*** country is a great feat. Now after… Continue

Evolution is proof that constraints such as survival can act as an iterative filter to generate mind bogglingly innovate solutions. Constraints act as a natural challenge to our puzzle solving brain, providing a much more defined box for us to think outside of and promoting a sense of flow and focus. Innovators are often dreamers and without the grounding force of constraints to impose a sense of reality, many dreams don't become a reality. Constraints force ideas to become more and more… Continue

What you have matters more than what you lack (If you’ve got a bicycle,

consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about

not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)



In my opinion, the above statement is very much related to the problem of the consumerism and the materialistic society we live nowadays. People only wish for more, and dont consider aht they really need but what they want. I used to be like that as well, and I believe it is a matter of… Continue

What you have matters more than what you lack (If you’ve got a bicycle,

consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about

not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)



Majority of the world, focuses on the what they don't have. if we could change the perspective of future generations to be more appreciative of they have it will change the out look on life for many. as a nation were always striving to earn more money, a better car, and a bigger house. i would… Continue

create

Ok We use vehicle everyday also we drink water every day we should come up with a way to make cars runoff water rather it’s dirty or not. We will have an unlimited supply of water because the ocean is big plus we get
even more when it rain. We will not have to worry about killing the ozone
layer.

The city can use their money to rebuild the buildings and stores. If New York experiences an earthquake, the buildings might be damaged and they need to be fixed, to get on with life.

Electricity

I would use the wind and sun such as the solar pannels to fuel my everyday use of lights and my computer and phone. It would less harmful to the environment since it uses something that comes naturally to the planet and it would a much more cost effective way for me to power my house. With everything that is being invented in technology it is time for something to come along and be easier on the environment electricity wise.

Food Security

With the ecomony taking a downturn so significantly the past couple of years more and more people find themselves losing their jobs, homes and families with nothing left they are forced to the street. With an ever growing homeless population and the lack of volunteers or homeless shelthers it provides a big challenge for people. I think the solutions that people have been taking is taking schools to… Continue
