Acting on Food Security

Here is where I start to feel a little gulity about my role in all of this. The most I have done on this front is to pop some tins in a shopping basket in our local supermarket and to row 200 metre for sport relief.



To my shame I just to contribute to relief work in Haiti before the Earthquake but let my contributions lapse as I had more pressing issue at home. By joining in this discussion I have now decided it is time again to look at a monthly contribution to one or more…

FOOD SECURITY

Living in the UK, I find this a very difficult issue to comment on, as far as a local innitative is concerned. I have investigated this issue and have come up with this news report on Local Poverty. Take a look at this link to see the worse kind of poverty we have in cornwall.

What I will be doing in 2020

I hope to be in the same postion I am now in my home and work life. I am lucky enough to be involved in the education of Marine Biology students, so I feel I am contributing in the production of the next generation of world warriors. Also at home I now monitor everything we do and try to save on everything. In ten years time I will be doing the same or even more to help our dying world.

Alos after listerning to Jane McGonigal presentation below, I too feel that she may well have something with this idea.

Social Innovation LEARN 1

"Innovate on existing platforms (We’ve got bicycles and mobile phones in Africa, plus lots of metal to weld. Innovate using that stuff, rather than bringing in completely new tech.)" This make so much more sense to me, simply solutions with small costs, will bring help to many. Again and again, this is stiffled by the need of so many, to make money out of these kind of things rather than doing it for the sake of helping people in great need.

One Such Idea is this Bicycle, I am…

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

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.
