imagine #2

On March 10 2020 I see myself eating a salad full of fresh produce that I had just purchased from the market, Where I know that my produce was grown naturally a block away in the vertical farming tower. That I can see from my kitchen table.

I recently spent my Sunday with my cousin and my sister helping out at a food drive in Atlanta called must ministries. We made mashed potatoes, and other families brought in chicken and vegetables. We then served the food to people who were less fortunate and talked to them about their day and how they were doing. I feel like I made a big difference in those people’s lives and the food security of Atlanta by providing them with healthy fresh food.

Food Security Issues in America

 

One of the leading food security issues in America is not enough access to healthy fruits and vegetables. The idea of vertical farming is already spreading rapidly through the world and hopes are that it will some make its way to America so that people can have local healthy produce.

Mission Three - Imagine

It is Oct. 6, 2020 and my daughter's 30th birthday! I am very excited, because she will be flying home from Africa to spend her birthday with us.

After work I will run home to do a hurried last-minute cleaning of our house (which runs on a combination of macrobiofuel for the HVAC and solar power for the lights, ect.). Then, I will rush to the bakery in my car (which runs on the fulvic acid from humate) to pick up the cake. By the time I get home and prepare the meal, she will just be…

Mission 3 - ACT

Okay, I am not an engineer. However, I like to think big, so I wanted to design a way I could fuel heat and air conditioning for my home. I LOVE heat and air conditioning! I am attracted to the microbioFuel cell, because it produces both electricity and methane (gas). In Charleston, SC, we have a lot of algae, but I am wondering whether it wouldn't be possible to achieve the same results by mixing algae, seaweed and humates with regular bio-decomposables--like from the garden (compost) and…

In My City

The worst problem in my city is the amount of people who dont have a way to get food and the amount of people who cant afford it.

Imagine #2

I am at my apartment eating by myself. My food came from the farmers market. It was very expensive though because it is so hard for farmers to grow crops now and them still be good to eat because of global warming and other major problems. I prepared it my self. The dish does not have a name but it is just broccoli, zucchini, squash, and chicken. The chicken is a little dry, the zucchini and squash are good, and the broccoli was kind of wilted when I got it, so it is really flavor less now.…

Act #2

I could have a homeless shelter. It wouldn't only be a homeless shelter but a food kitchen too for the ones who stay there. I could start a garden where they would all pitch in a help out with it and with the foods they grow in it they could use it to eat because they most likely would not be able to pay for their own food. I would do other fundraisers to pay for the rest of the food because you might not be able to get enough as you need from the garden.

My Idea

I think it would be a good idea for instead of having gardens of plants and flowers in your yard, have fruits and vegetables growing.

My Dinner

I would be eating hand picked fruits and vegtables from a small farm in my yard. I would be eating with several people, because if each one of us brings food we wont have to deal with cooking a wh*** meal every time.

Liquid batteries

The main problem is that wind farms and solar panels only power devices while the wind is blowing or the sun is shining, there is no effective battery system... until this scientist at MIT came up with an effective liquid battery.

News of the world

According to an Economist article I read there is enough food today to feed everyone, it is just a distributional issue that stems from government corruption and cost to transport.

In the future food issues will be multiplied by desertification, so tax incentives should be put in place for keeping at-risk areas green

I would start a big farm where everyone can help from bringing the supplies or planting the crops. if most people in my town help for just a couple hours, we can help many people.

food crisis

I think in U.S we take advantage of all the food we have and take it all for granted. If you compare the food in a super power country to a third world country you defiantly see the difference. I think that the people who have more should give to the people who have less so everyone can have an equal amount and everyone can help others if they need it

In ten years...

Ten years from now I will probably still be in the Marine Corps. Hopefully by then I will have earned my master's degree, and I'll be working to line up my next career upon retirement from the military. I really hope to be able to be part of the political process in some way. I don't know if I have the right personality to be a successful politician, but I'd love to at least work behind the scenes to get things done!

My Idea

The thing I use the most during the day is my computer because most of my school work involves something on the internet. I think the best thing I could do is have battery cell that could be charged in multiple ways like by riding a stationary bike and solar power.

renewable energy

I found a website called re-innovation where they have blogs about renewable energy sources. It also has new innovative energy products that could cut down on everyday energy uses and how you can make them at home.

Listen to the Right People

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
