I was skimming the forum when I noticed a question in a post asking "How would you explain morals to someone who might not have them?"
It kind of gave me a pause.
One of the responders (A.V. Koshy) responded that he's never heard of a society of people that does not have some kind of moral guideline whatever they may be.
And this is true, every society or coming together of humans has some kind of "Moral" agreements made within them (even if it's begrudging agreements… Continue

If there was a tornado or other crisis in the town i am living I would utilize text messageing, actual phone calls, facebook, twitter and actually going door to door to alert and help people. the ushahadi project is excellent but we need to have one for each town in the US! I would also use the TV and any local chatrooms to check up on people and what they have heard. I would be calling everyone I know.
short but sweet.
grace and peace sunnydupree

The Ushahidi project is a platform which allows users to report important information by utilizing their smartphones. They can use video, pictures or text message to report the problems that are occuring in realtime. Ushahidi uses a filter so that they can plow through all the messages and find out what is really going on instead of having to go through the massive amounts of data that is transmitted on Ushahidi.

I think that phrase "the crowd does not lie" can be utilized in the technologies that we have on hand. If one were to use their twitter account, facebook or other networking sites to report immediate problems the urgency would be evident to others as people report personally on what is happening. You can have one person saying something and it might be wrong but if a mass of people in separate areas are saying the same thing then you can pretty well bet it is true.

n the year 2020 the girls and women that I have helped will be happy and
confident. The world will be changed greatly because my women have
advanced their lives by coming together under the Idea that all people

will be valued and therefor both sexes, men and women, will learn what
it means to care for their fellow man in a humane and moral manner. Wars
are no longer fought but hard won… Continue

I have come to this day for a purpose. I am not here to elevate fear. I am hear to help women fear less. The thing that most people need to know is that rape and other physical abuses are the most common problem for women and young children. As I have said before just about all the women I know have had someone molest them at one time are the other. I want women and children to know that they can arm themselves with knowledge and learn to keep an eye out for those who would hurt them.Because I… Continue

Economic Sustainability is key to a continous social innovations.
Without it, being dependant on fundings, continous presence of an NGO/INGO to making a difference to a society would be chronic at the level of "investment dilemma" -- the more you are investing your time and funds in that particular community, for particular issue, the more 'addicted' society is to the funds, and the more failure it becomes.…

In my original hometown of Salinas, Ca. Many people who live in immigrant neighborhoods are often struggling with buying food and providing it for the family. It is just sad to see because I believe that food is one of the key things in our lives for survival.These people are all working class, and for some odd reason weren't eligible to get food stamps which to me was unbelievable because they should have gotten them. It's just sad… Continue

After reading the mission objective, I was all ready to go! But then I realised that there wasn't anyone like that in my town, and I couldn't donate to anyone because I didn't have any money. So I thought for a bit, and then I realised that what I could do was only the most obvious course of action: I'd advertise this site! That way, I'd have all sorts of people going out and making changes, instead of just me! So what I did was I posted on www.susans.org,… Continue
