Bartering

Since I've been living on such little $, relatively, the potential that barter brings is even more evident. I don't have a washer or dryer, so I bartered with my friend, trading him a bottle of my homebrew to wash my clothes there. Bartering has many advantages, the foremost for me being the personal aspect of the transaction. moneyy makes things rather Impersonal...



Exchanging goods & services brings a level of intimacy that I welcome. So I will be bartering much more,… Continue

The Water Dream

I'm in the place of my upbringing, the outskirts of Washington D.C, for the World Water Gathering, 2020. There are, of course, similar gatherings in many other places globally, including but not limited to, Tokyo, London, Beunos Aires, Mexico City, Babylon, Amsterdam...

Wow, there is the magnificent energy-generating, re-circulating waterfall powering 50% of the entire event

this was first introduced,…

Is Ignorance A Excuse for Apathy?

I've been pondering the rather carefree attitude many seem to have about the world's problems we are attempting to solve. Does it ever seem like some people you are acquainted with just dont care?



Are those of us who expend a considerable amount of time researching, thinking about & trying to fix highly relevant issues; wastefulness, consumerism, poverty, impending water shortage, etc. Enough to overcome the apathy displayed by, in my humble opinion, too many world citizens? I… Continue

Wąťër...Chåńğe?

Figuring out how to act on the water crisis is tricky. Yes, you can donate money, but thats scarce. I'd rather do something concrete; help in the actual process.



I first visited waterforpeople.org & friended them on facebook. Changemakers led to self.org, a pretty sweet project that uses solar energy to provide drip irrigation that has been implemented in several villages. The big changes are solar from gas(pump power) & ability to grow things in the dry season, which is like… Continue

Social Innovation Hero

IMaybe this is a little like cheating, but my hero is my brother, Josh. After entering the army out of high school, he went to Iraq. The things that happened to him over there really tested him in many different ways. He advocated for better treatment of Iraqis, while exploring moral grey areas with fellow soldiers. After getting back, Josh applied for & eventually got conscientious objectors status (discharge from army due to changed personal/religious convictions against… Continue

Multi-functional structures feature underground water source, wastewater treatment within

As a green architecture training expert & fan, I love the fact the range of buildings' features can be so complete, from all energy & water needs met through renewables & surplus energy & water distributed to nearby structures to cover some or all of their needs, to waste water treatment inside building, to grey-water systems & almost anything else you could imagine. This is a wonderful water-purifying skyscraper designed…

Evokabration April 20, 2020, Your all invited!

One of my favorite days of the year is 4.20. On this momentes day in 2020 many think back just 10 years ago when water started becoming scarce & alternative means to power & live started to really take route. Today I am on a meduim-size island with a friend who owns it off the coast of South America. Due to the collaborative efforts of the ignagural class of Evoke, 2010, the world leaders & governments were helped in diverting global food & fossil fuel shortages, riots,…

Learning New Ways to Power/Live

I have incorporated ways to lessen my footprint/use less power since moving to Little Rock into an apartment. I put a greywater 5 gallon bucket under my kitchen sink. I use this to flush the toilet(and thinking about using it to water my non-edible plants, thoughts anyone?). I have replaced the light in the living room with christmas lights & will soon do this for the rest of the rooms. I have vowed not to use air conditioning & hope I can stick to my guns. Recycling obviously. Making… Continue

Power Player- Clarke Snell & Michael Reynolds

Clarke Snell is a green builder based in the United States. His book

He builds his own house in the book & explains in detail each process, from his four different wall methods (modified wood frame, cob, haybale & clay-strip straw) to his green roof, with his extra rainwater feeding his garden. His emphasis on incorporating the outdoor into his… Continue

My meal imagined

I will be living next to an ocean on a beach, in a forest with gardens, or in the mountains near delicious spring water, whichever one will have fresh, abundant air. I will be sharing a meal with my colleagues; people who live near me & help me with my goals while I help them with theirs. Our accomplishments include multiple community gardens, several shared vehicles (zero-emission helicopter & car) and rainwater catchement. My house is small, but has a badass green roof where I love…

Helping others eat right

Man, is there anything more delicious then a peice of fresh fruit or a tasy dish of vegetables with rice & potatoes? Over the past year, I have been working hard to eat right & the right food to eat turns out tasting better then the wrong food. I really enjoy taking fruit with me, especially oranges, on the go, slicing it up & sharing a piece with whoever is around. Many people confide its been a while since they tasted fruit & had forgotten how good it…

The Delicate Balance Between Water Shortages & Needed Increased Agriculture

In The recession of 2008, skyrocketing food prices brought much of the world to riots, social unrest & even death. Prices have leveled out, but not for long. Our population is still growing, relatively rapidly & with fluctuating temperatures & moisture caused by global warming, our food supply is in danger of yielding gains far beneath what we need to survive.

There are many solutions feasible to tackle this problem. Increased productivity through hybrid plants…

Imagine1 2020

My company is unique in many ways. One service we offer is total destruction of original, outdated, ineffecient house. The trick is the materials that are salvageable. Those that aren't are recycled. We have been zero trash since we started three years ago in 2017. The old materials end up mostly usable. Eliminating outdated architecture like crawl spaces & attics decreases material needed.



Clients love the balance of design, maximizing vertical space & affordability. There… Continue

Social Innovation & Changing Mindsets

I feel like choosing just one secret is too narrowing & there are ones that are closely related & interwoven. Take what you have is more important then what you lack. Now add do hard work needed to find a simple solution. When your limited to a certain amount of assets, you pretty much automatically have to work harder to find a way to utilize the alternative materials which is subsequently simplifying the process by just using what you have.



Delving in furthur, sticking to… 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***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
