You don't have to be a scientist to save the environment!

What are YOU doing to save the environment?

This is a question I find myself pondering quite often. What am I doing to help save our beautiful planet? I think everyone needs to take a look at the impact we are having on the planet Earth. After doing some research for the past few months, I found that there are many…

Homeless in a First World Country

In the late 2000's the world has seen the effects of what has been called "The Great Recession." Starting in late 2007, a financial crisis began to stir within the United States. Financial institutions were taking part in lending practices that were considered reckless and unsustainable. The breakdown of these high risk loans began to expose the fact that many assets had been grossly over-priced, especially in the real estate market. People began to lose their job, default on their mortgages,… Continue

ACT 1: Social Innovator: Eben Bayer and Ecovative Design

The hero I'm choosing to shadow is Eben Bayer, CEO of Ecovative, a bio-materials company that is based out of New York.

IMAGINE 1: 10 years from now...

I plan on having my B.A. and Masters completed in Communications, Public Relations and Marketing. I'm halfway to my B.A. so that seems much more than reasonable. If I were called upon to help out in the Tokyo Food Crisis, i would hope my education and experience in the communications field would help… Continue

LEARN 1: A Walk In Your Shoes.

"Problems are not always obvious from afar (You really have to live for

a while in a society where no one has currency larger than a $1 bill to

understand the importance of money via mobile phones.)"

You never really know what someone's life is like until you have

experienced it for yourself. As Americans, most of us have grown up with our basic needs met along with thousands of luxuries that make our lives easier. Since we are raised with objects such as microwaves,… Continue

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

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
