Celebratory Tactics

For most of us the food shortages are overseas, however the help that we offer them often comes from home. That said, the more likely we are to assist local food drives; who often donate to overseas efforts, the more aid will reach the people who need it most. With that idea in mind, there needs to be more done to celebrate food drives as a rewarding event rather than a task that needs to be done. It doesn't even need to be during a time of crisis when… Continue

Unconventional Heroics

Evoke tells our own stories so that we might too inspire.

I can't quite remember if I've ever held a real person in such regard as to call them my hero, except maybe my father for a time; but most of us go through a similar stage in life. On the other hand, fictional characters have been on my mind ever since I first stepped into the library at school and found the many works within, and have been a continued… Continue

Scrying the Future - 2020

Wako, Texas - I've never been a big traveler, but every now and then I'll make my way through the States to visit my sister; amongst others, and this time I had gotten all caught up in her recent crusade in the struggle with autism.

She was crazy as far as I was concerned, but not in a bad way; the kind of person who planned far in advance, the kind of person who thought big. I had lived most of my life in her shadow, which was an unlikely feat were… Continue

Strangers in a Strange Land and Problems at Home

'talk to the people who have the problem – and LISTEN to what they have to say' (Paul Polak)

I'm probably not the first to admit it, nor am I certainly going to be the last; but I know so little about the world's cultures and the people who live and work within them. Sometimes I even feel I know more about dealing with 'people' on the… 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

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**stances 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.
