Knowledge can be the fighting edge against a looming crisis

After a brief weekend with my sponsor family in Charleston, I took the time to sit down and asked my parents what they knew in relation to our city's adaptive capacity. As it turns out, my sponsor family knew a great deal about the adaptability of our cities strategies in terms of tackling natural disasters and other crisis that may effect Charleston. My sponsor father is actually apart of a rapid response force with his federal agency. The group is activated during any crisis that may take…

The Life Saving Technology of Tomorrow

When considering crisis that have and may unfold in my community, I recognize the threats posed by hurricanes and tornados. Both weather systems have destructive effects that can be seen across both the state of South Carolina and the Southeast region of the United States. In terms of where I live, I feel that Charleston is at most risk for the possibility of a hurricane. In Charleston's history, several hurricanes have ripped through its beautiful coast line and destroyed multiple locations…

Saving the planet's water one donation at a time!

In an effort to form an alliance with a water conservationist, I sought to research the best ways for me to better provide for a water-rich society. In my search, I discovered many organizations and various ways to help, but one group that stood out most to me is the Water Charity. Through productive and community organizing programs, Water Charity seeks to provide funds for needed projects to help bring water and different resources to regions of the world in need. My participation in this…

The water crisis and how we effect it on a closer scale

In an approach to better help those of the United States and other well-developed nations around the world see the use of water in the community, I have developed a mini ecosystem containing a neighborhood of several homes on a single sanitation/water system. In the project, individuals will be able to examine a neighborhood from eye level in an effort to better understand water and its use as well as possible waste in our water systems. The ecosystem of the neighborhood which is comparable…

Uganda's Water Crisis

After carefully reading up on the water crisis in Uganda, I discovered that there are several programs taking a stand against the cruel and unforgiving water depressions that the nation faces year round. According to Water.org, several foundations under the organization operate with "microfinancing" institutions to provide loans for water and even sanitation efforts to better provide the villages of the nation with healthier living conditions. These two serves feed into a program associated…

Eastern Uganda and its approach to indigenous knowledge in climate change

In a remote region of Uganda lies a region referred to as the Teso Sub-region. Home to some of Uganda's oldest elders, the region houses multiple villages that still maintain traditional and often unrecognizable practices. Some of these practices tackle the problem of climate change in the region. In a scholarly article published by Anthony Egeru, I learned that these practices have helped the villagers of this region cope with the mild and sometimes increasing temperatures. Such practices…

Inspiring the future of business

Earlier today, I took an interest in kiva, which operates solely to obtain and exchange money for loans that may benefits others world wide. The company is somewhat of a meeting place for those who are in need of loans and those who have the ability to lend. I personally had the opportunity to lend some of my personal finances to a small business owner in Boston, MA. This opportunity funded his base of advertisement for his company which works closely with Caribbean trade and financial…

Evolving Our Financial Systems

After a careful reading of the Do-it-Yourself article on money exchanges, I found the article to be very interesting. The article attempts to explain how businesses and exchange websites like craigslist could sometime in the near future be using a system of alternative money for exchange of merchandise. Some organizations have already began using this system and it has flourished especially in places like Kenya where money is valued lower than most currencies around the world. I personally…

The future awaits me...

In the next ten years, I can see many wondrous roads to follow. These roads have no ending but opportunities of unique and diverse complexity. I believe that I will find myself in a position of authority with the US Government helping to stabilize regions and provide for democracy in areas of the world that deserve it most. Every dream is achievable through strength and numbers, but only those who pursue it with ambition will make the cut. My aim is to provide those who work for me with the…

Could you do it?

Living on two dollars can seem like a daunting task. Could it actually be achievable though? I chose this secret because I feel that it opens our eyes to a different world. Most could only imagine in our world what its like to hold $100 or less, but truly there are those who hold even less; sometimes for periods longer than a year. The struggle is real and at the end of the day, we in the western world may not truly understand the crisis looming in our own hearts if we can't consider the…

Changing the World one penny at a time!

Earlier today, I discovered a CEO who is making waves of change in the world. Her name is Nicole Stubbs. The aim of her organization is to reduce any and all lending/capital repayment to countries that are in developing regions. I truly believe that her focus is a cause that we need to set ours ears and eyes to for the decades to come. Keep Nicole and her organization in your thoughts and prayers.

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
