As my hot water boiler here at home lights itself to heat up my running water by the flow of this water through a dynamo which delivers the spark for the flames, I had this idea:
Design a dynamo mounted on a common household tap that revolves when you let the water run out of any tap in the house. Whenever I take running water then, I will be using the kinetic energy from the flow of water to generate electricity, which i can store.
The mood was festive and expectations were high yesterday as Belgium had the scoop on being the first country to actually reform their National Bank into the EVOKE Bank of Belgium. The somewhat gaudy new sign (see picture) on the front of what was formerly "De Nationale Bank van Belgïe" in the city of Antwerp was the subject of quite some controversy, but, as the Belgian Prime Minister, Brick de Bois, stated, quoting the…
I am helping "It's Agent T" in contacting organizations involved in or affected by clean water management, to fill in the Questionnaire for the Independent Expert of the Human Rights Committee, delegated to deal with the issue of making safe drinking water a basic human right.

Right. If we are going to think about the future of money we first need to know where it came from, what its history and background is and how its use, its meaning and its pitfalls have evolved throughout the ages.
If there is one thing we seem to take for granted it is that money is a good thing, that it is a great and efficient way to use for human transactions. It is, but...
Why, I wonder, are most, suggestions for the LEARN mission objective in the Future of Money about alternative…
The Urgent Evoke KIVA team has 12 members now and those all seem to be spreading the word. I hope that the team will blossom and take the knowledge of KIVA's micro loans to aal corners of Evoke and beyond.
Make a difference. Suggest lending at KIVA to non Evoke players too!

It's may 2020. Six people gather for an annual celebration. 28 years ago in may we bought a house together, to secure our own shelter and to rent out parts of it to other people. At the time it was a daunting risk to take. But in the meantime it has proven to be a great investment into our own future. At the outset we called ourselves 'OK unlimited' (OK stands for Opportunity Knocks).
Now in 2020 we gather again, celebrating with great food and nice drinks too. This year is…
Well i just took the bull by the horns and wrote an email to KIVA and to the field partners of the people i gave a loan to through KIVA, letting them know that EVOKE players would like help in setting up a direct line of communications with some of the people we are trying to help.
I also informed them and now also whoever reads this that there is now a Urgent EVOKE KIVA team. Feel free to join.
"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"
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. 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
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.
