ACT1 1Sky's responce

Leigh Knudsen

I chose Gillian Caldwell, the Campaign Director of 1Sky as my social innovation role model and sent them an email telling them about EVOKE and my interest in their organization. I was very pleased to see a response in my email this morning, posted below. 1Sky asked me if I would be interested in writing a blog post for them. Honestly, working three part time jobs and studying for school has left me little time for environmental activism… Continue

Choose Renewable Power

Interestingly enough, though the idea of this Action is to design, many alternatives have already been designed. For example, I already use a watch that isn't powered by a battery, and it used to be owned by my grandfather and then my father! It is a Rolex that uses kinetic energy to keep the movement of the watch. As I swing my arm through the day, it keeps time without needing winding.

If I were to design a way to power something I use every day, I'd want to use similar kinetic… Continue

Al Gore

I picked Al Gore as my social innovator role model, because of his clean energy and climate change advocacies. His doc**entary, The Inconvenient Truth, not only exposes the harsh environmental realities in the status quo but also provides for solutions to prevent further environmental degradation. I added him up on Facebook. I intend to read more about him and his advocacies at www.algore.com. I also plan to buy a ticket to his lecture about The Inconvenient… Continue

Cool 4th of July

It is the 4th of July and the sun is at a sweltering station in the sky as I await my food from the sizzling grill. But, I'm not hot at all. I'm wearing a robe that is generating energy from my body heat. Just as photovoltaic cells capture free electrons from light, the cells in my robe are diligently collecting free electrons from the infared "light" heat from my body. As the heat dissipates in the form of stored, electric energy, I feel quite cool as a natural byproduct! Later, I'll unplug… Continue

Social Entrepreneurship: Updated

I just wrote an email to Caroline Howe, who is one of a few people running the India Youth Climate Network. She and I are friends, after we got to spend a fair amount of time hanging out in Lodhi Gardens when I was living and working in India last summer--but I don't know much at all about how her life, or how her efforts at the IYCN are going.

Anyway, here's what I wrote her:

Hi Caroline!

It's been a while since we last talked--how are you? How is the

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.
