Poverty + Illiteracy = HUNGER

Poverty + Illiteracy = HUNGER

The biggest challenge to food security is

IN MY COUNTRY UGANDA, the majority of people (80%+) rely on their gardens for food and earning some money to buy the essential needs. This means at the end of the day, the family head has to sell 3/4 of the food to get some money to acquire the basic facilities (salt, soap, kerosene, e.t.c.). Even the children of a…

The eDinner of 2020 Cooks Self!

The preparation machine takes into account of my mood and the previous meals I have had. The meal is then automatically delivered to the table.

No Human intervention just computers at work! I call this eDinner and I hope this will be possible in… Continue

Innovate on existing platforms

"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.)"

I see this working in my country Uganda. With telephone coverage almost everywhere, we can impact people's lives with innovations that work on text voice phones. This just sparked off a number of ideas:

  1. Google…

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

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.
