Political crisis

Political crisis is the most likely thing to happen in my country then the others considering our political instability.

Exchanging other currencies

I have done it before quite a few times actually, buying virtual currencies via paypal. They'll sure give you an edge in your virtual communities. But we have to be careful with scams. Otherwise, it was an intriguing experience I would say..

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

To be honest, I've only donated food, cloths and money to the poorer but I've never done something like gardening which can count for long-term food security.... I'm gonna start doing it when I have a chance from now on.

And I suggest watching this series of videos from NASA...…

Social Innovation

I would pick "Think and act big" because all great works came from some big ideas that most people think they were just crazy and impossible.

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

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.

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.
