World Water Day, 2020

In major cities worldwide, a small semi-truck drives into the town center. Its sides are clear, made of a stable glass-like substance. What's more surprising isn't the trailer's walls; its the contents: nasty, muddy, unclean water.

On top of the truck rides a team of volunteers, armed with loudspeakers. They remain silent as the truck pulls to the center of the plaza and parks. Crowds begin to gather. News crews are summoned, as reports of similar trucks world wide are… Continue

This is what I fight against.

This is the banner I fight under.

This is the thing I fight against.

These are the horrors that happen every day.

An annual report by the US State Department on the human rights situation in Zimbabwe has revealed that ‘corrective rape’ against gay men and lesbians is on the increase.

Journalist Angus Shaw said the latest 50 page report compiled by the US Embassy in Harare gives emphasis to the harassment of the gay…

Food Security: The Sad Truth

In my Mission 2 Learn post, I shared information about One World, Everyone Eats. Not many responded to my alert about this amazing program, which saddens me.

I am now making an effort to volunteer at least once a week, as I can, at OWEE. My husband is volunteering 2-3 times a week as well.

With that, my ACT2 post would be done and over with. But I have one more thing to say. A… Continue

Dinner in 2020 (Mission 2)

The death sleep of winter has slowly faded,

the rigor of the ground loosens,

and the earth is once more reborn.

Like Mithras and Osiris,

reborn from death,

life returns again to the land,

springing up as the snow melts away.

As the soil warms and the days grow longer,

dew forms along new sprouts of grass,

bringing life back.

Playing Catchup

Hey all -

I apologize for my disappearance - I have simply been busy and sick, and too distracted to pay attention to Evoke. So I am behind!

I will be playing catch up. Thank you for your support. :)

Finding a Hero: Jason Goldberg

I was stumped for hours on finding my "hero" to shadow. I went through the lists recommended by the mission, read through sites, but I just wasn't finding the spark. I wanted to find someone I could relate to in the social change I want to make - and I wasn't finding anyone.

Surely someone out there was focused on gender or sexual preference issues? Equality? Social norms? I love the environment, and I care about it and education and poverty and these other issues - but they weren't… Continue

Not just a video games writer

As a paid writer, I've taken off in the video games field. Freelance writing about video games is my day job - upward to 60 hours a week, getting paid for reviewing games, doing guides, and posting news. It's a fun job, and I do enjoy it - but it's not what I want to spend my life writing about.

I've already mentioned my goal, my personal passion and project and part of what brought me to Evoke - advocacy for those with "alternative" sexual preferences and genders. This is "the big… Continue

Listening to the right people.

Listen to the right people. Okay, so you probably don’t know what it’s like to carry fifty pounds of firewood on your head. Well, don’t pretend that you do. Talk to someone who has

done it. I believe that the key to innovation in international

development is truly understanding the problem, and using your

imagination is not good enough.

When my goal hit me - when I just "knew" what I wanted to do,…

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.
