power shift-act

Animals produce energy all the time, every day. Living beings are like living machines; we intake food and convert it into energy, which with help from exterior machinery can be made into electricity. I want to test this out by creating a device that could collect energy made from a hamster or guinea pig running in a wheel and convert it into electricity that could charge a phone or laptop. This would be a completely sustainable, green and easy way to create electricity.…

conservation in transportation





One of the most enormous yet often overlooked food security problems is food transportation. With the amount of fossil fuel left in the world slowly deteriorating and the price of gas fluxuating every day, transportation of food is becoming increasingly difficult. Gas prices going up means the mass-transportation of food to grocery stores and markets is… Continue

social innovation-act

Someone tackling a problem who is an inspiration to me is Craig Beresh, who represents NORML (The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). I believe he is doing good for the environment by striving to legalize the use of marijuana as well as hemp because the variety of environmentally friendly alternatives hemp can provide is virtually endless. Legalization of industrial use of hemp would produce possibilities for alternative paper, plastics, oil, concrete, building materials… Continue

In 2020 I will be 25. I see myself in some field of the visual or musical arts, probably starving and living in a cheap apartment.

social innovation-learn

The most important attribute that contributes to social innovation is having sympathy based on first hand experienced rather than what you think the situation might be like. Imagining the life of poverty in Ecuador or mass hunger in Africa is drastically different from experiencing it. Going to a place, experiencing its conditions and surroundings, interacting with the people there and becoming part of the community will not only give you a better idea of how to help but will help you to form a… 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.
