Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

A.V.Koshy's Blog (76)


Oonce upon a time there was a father and a mother.

They had two children.

They were happy.

Soon they had another cause for happiness.

They were going to have an addition to the family.

The mom had had two Caesareans.

Third time around, still the same thing.

The doc -a lady -asked her the same question as the previous two times.

Do you wanna go for a scan?

You can tell if there's something wrong with the kid and go for an…

"The unexamined life is not worth living."

Ringing the curtain down.

80 blogs.

23 photos.

6 videos.

What remains, of a time stretching from March 14th when I came on Uevoke.

I finished the ten quests.

I finished all the missions.

I have done my evokation and only need to edit it a little and send it in again when it is due.

Some more tidying, editing and backing up. Done.

I was hero…

WE, THE AGENTS OF EVOKE, DO hereby solemly declare that we stand only for three things:

Freedom, loving our neighbours as ourselves by helping those in need and adhering to the golden rule.

In this process we may or may not end up changing ourselves, or saving the world. Like a nuclear bomb bursting we explode and the fallout is radiation that affects a million causes , burning as bright as suns. We sow change and we reap or harvest the future.

We have no…

Yes. We need the leader board.

This is a comment I made to a blog post by Win The Planet Alexandru.

I felt it can stand alone so am moving it here.

If a game offers rewards, tangible ones like points, scholarships, honours , educational ceriticates for completing the course and awards AS EVOKE DOES - people are going to try for those, whether it's considered ok or not by the community.

A system with a heirarchy and a game which can be won or prizes that can be won where evoke admins can also…

Imagine 9 - Pandemic in Bangalore in 2011

Swineflu has returned to Bangalore and seems on the verge of getting out of hand.

I call in/up my friends from urgentevoke, delta and evoke4ever to help.

Radhika Darbari creates a forum for information.

MoE creates a wiki.

MAK is there with Elastika to ensure safety of drinking water and that its availability is not in danger.

Using Ushahidi Panamericana and Sarah O.connor maps out for me the best routes to hospitals, and we put the numbers…

Learn 9 - Outbreak Communication in the case of a pandemic.

When swine flu hit Bangalore in 2009 very quickly ads and posters and TV came out with the needed information that washing hands was one good way of keeping the flu away.

Many were affected and a few died but despite the masks and the panic the city quickly recovered.

In this respect I felt that effective communication is one of the best ways to fight an epidemic

So I have chosen outbreak comunication as my topic - or how sources view the story.

These I feel are…

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

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.

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.
