It's March 23rd 2020 and folks are tuning in to the Weather Channel and peering anxiously at the sky. People pack their cars, buy plane tickets and oil their bicycles, because where the rain is...that's where we'll celebrate World Water Day.
Upon my research on eco problems in Scotland for Quest3, I found this website on BBC. It's an interactive site for kids, built on a similar premise to this one - with missions and agents and whatnot - to encourage Reducing, Reusing, Recycling and Respect. Please take a look and share the link with any kids you know... …
My invention supposes that this has been fully developed and methods have been created to turn the heat into use-able energy. Obviously, there could be lots of uses for this. I posted a photo early about solar panel roofing tiles. This paint may be a cheaper way. Maybe… Continue
By this time I am somewhat of a world traveler. I like to relive memories through food.
I'll remember my 2008 summer abroad in Mexico with tinga for supper. Tostadas with delicious seasoned chicken, LOTS of avocado, crema, and black refried beans. With tuna water (made from the cactus, not the leftover water in a tunafish can.) Oh, and super fresh mangos and pineapple. Perhaps I should be visiting Mexico. That's the only way for the fruit to be truly… Continue
I had to fight the impulse to make excuses to put off this mission. I'm in the middle of relocating, so I'm not really in the position to start volunteering for Meals on Wheels, the farmers market is out of season, and there's no yard to plant vegetables in.
So I started to think about what I can do NOW. These might be tiny contributions, but they'll add up. I've decided to visit each of these websites once a day until the move. Then, once I'm settled somewhere I can look for a… Continue
I learned a lot about food security problems from this lovely video (via Superforest) It explains everything from food production, to distribution, to consumption in a simple and artistic way. I highly recommend watching!
For this mission I chose to shadow Jane McGonigal.
I want to do what she's doing with games through theatre.
Like online gaming, theatre and performing arts are often underestimated and perceived as trivial to a vast number of society. I am applying to a M.A. program for Theatre Education in Social Contexts from Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in 2011. Right now my ideas center around working… Continue
"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"
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
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
It is 7'oclock, I was late home from work due to an assignment that i wanted to get ahead on. By the time I get home I am feeling extremley tired and I cannot be bothered to make a proper meal.

Foods are vacc** sealded for easy…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
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.
