Outer space

One of the most interesting case studies in the Kiva database ( http://www.kivu.com/wbbook/casestudies.html ) is, from my point ov view, the Participatory Research Mapping (PRM). I'm a geographer, I can't help it. That's why I'm so interested in geographical space, and I'm so concerned about space perception by individuals and social groups.



One of the most important problems which indigenous communities have to face hwen… Continue

Pandemic flu has reached out island: first cases hit main cities. But the game is not over yet. We can still make the difference. And we have an ace in our sleeves: you.



You sheperds, millenary heritage of our island, can do something really important to fight the flu.



We know you're use to pandemies on your sheeps: you already know basic hygienical rules to avoid diseases-spreading.



We don't have enough doctors to check all the possibly sick people, but if we use… Continue

Olive oil

Before I leave this life, I have to share a secret. Someone in my early

age taught it to me, and now I have to tell the world.

Someone taught me how to get oil from olives. Nowadays these plants are

hard to find in my hometown, but someone is still cultivating this,

trying to resist to heat.

Anyway, first of all you need trees. Take care of your olive trees,

protect them from fire, and cut away higher branches in the end of

winter: you'll get more nourishing… Continue

Short range food

A new awareness for consumption has led to a new perspective in eating.

People all around the world understood that consuming oil to get fruit out of season or meat from another hemisphere is really not worthy.

So, year after year, people understood the value of eating local food. So, in March 2020, I'm eating some artichokes fried in olyve oil, and a piece of stewed sheep.



To tell the truth: I'm saying that because i live in a small town. In a huge megalopolis this would be… Continue

Imitation of life

One of the most amazing solar machines is a tree. Chlorophyllian photosyntesis gets glucose and oxygen from sun and basic chemicals.



All over mankind's history science made most of its amazing progresses by imitating nature. So, when I saw this idea, I was really thrilled. If it works, it can be promising.…

Like a waltz

Inever lived in a pandemic breakdown, but last year I volluntereed in L'Aquila,to help local population in the Abruzzi earthquake. And one thing I saw as absolutely true is: "Good things happen if you do them".



300 people killed, about a hundred thousand people rescued and recovered, thousand of buildings collapsed or ruined; a city and its surroundings shattered. It has been hard… Continue

Struggling

http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=34512&Cr=palestin&Cr1=



Three Palestinian girls, living in a refugee camp in the West Bank, assemble an electronic cane and go to a sciene fair in California. Seems almost unbelievable. These people, doomed by one of the worst nightmares created by Western civilization, are still able to stand out from this all and to show out their… Continue

White rags and green parrots

Hero: it's one of the heaviest words around.



For me a hero is someone who stands for his beliefs, even againist tough challengers. I met someone like this once: Gino Strada, an Italian surgeon, among the founders of Emergency, a NGO which helps people opening field hospitals in war scenes, or in some of the poorest countries of the globe: Iraq, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Cambodia. Often standing againist Western governments, too eager for war; he first reported his eperience in the… Continue

No future(s)

I'm pretty conservative on this: money shouldn't change.



Let's start from the concept of money, and think what if we still had to rely on barter. Every person, every family should take care of everything they need for living, or hope for uncertain bargains with other people, neighbours who may already have what you can give away, or may be not so interester in your crafts.

Somebody can see it as a paradox, but in our economical system earning money for an activity allows yourself… Continue

From 0 to N

I won't be so different from nowadays. I guess I'll be in some lousy office, trying to do the way they want something I would do way differently.
The real change will be sudden, unpredictable, unstoppable. But only people who actually tried to change something around him will be ready and aware of the new possibilities.
I can wait. Oh I can wait...

Sign now, or dry later

Water availability is at a stake, even in a (supposed) "developed" country as Italy.

Last February the right-wing government has approved a law which forces all local administrations to pass water supply management to private corporations, in despite of many bad experiences already going on in some parts of the country.



Fortunately it's not too late to stop this nonsense.



A public committee is collecting signature to enact a referendum to abolish this law, and take back… Continue

Everyone can teach, somehow

Keep learning from your customers is really a poor achievement. A person who is really positive about improving himself and the world around him should be aware of this secret: every person you meet in your life, even the humblest or the worst ones, have something to teach. Something you can learn, to reshape yourself (your soul, your mind, your entity) in a better and improved way.

Try it by yourself, in the worst possible scenario. Think about the worst person you've ever met in your… 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.
