Dark Site for the Future

I sadly couldn't create a dark site, for both links on how to make one, without html experience, are broken. I searched for another tutorial, but couldn't seem to find one anywhere. Nonetheless I found a website that talks about them and it is something I would be interested to do in the future.…

Evoke Manifesto

The goals of Evoke are the same as before, but they have added obesity and diabetes. A chat room, forum and evoke staff help page have been added to address problems and brainstorm ideas. People who post one sentence posts and put no effort into them are asked to either put work in or leave. Profanity is also not allowed. This are now in a separate web page for the ethics of an Evoke agent. Evoke has hired a writer to come up with a new story line that is more captivating and quest runes,…

Revisions and Additions for Evoke Season 2

Season 2 of Evoke should definitely cover Obesity. It is a rising problem in the world and one that, if not tackled soon, will lead to a generation of depressed diabetics. Creating a version of Evoke that is available for those who don't have internet, such as an Evoke booklet with space to write and put pictures in. Evoke should push to appeal to people who have high level careers such as doctors, politicians and lawyers in order to produce more ideas in their own section of interest and… Continue

Kefira: A Rapidly-Multiplying Healthy Drink

Kefira is a drink created from bacteria cultures fed with sugar. It has something my mother has been doing for almost a year now and not only has she mastered it, but also experimented in making many different kinds. It is a rare thing to find a drink that tastes great and is also healthy. Sodas and fruit smoothies may taste good, but it's more sugar than anything else. My mother has blended kefira with vanilla beans, dry fruit, lemon and ginger to give it great flavors and it still contains…

Managing Panic in a Pandemic

In my opinion, managing panic in a pandemic is the most important secret of crisis communication. First of all, Public Trust is a huge issue in order to maintain people and panic. If people don't trust you, they won't do what you tell them to do. Push technology is the act of pushing messages out to the public and if not done right can cause problems and be ineffective. One must choose a general way of media to push out the message, radio the best in my opinion, and make sure people understand… Continue

Sustaining Locally in 2096

I'm currently fifteen in 2011 and will be one-hundred years old in 2096. The indigenous knowledge I will spread is to keep your life local. Buy local food and goods, use local services, go to local schools and avoid big corporations. By doing this one benefits their own community greatly. Money circulates and jobs are available for local people. This is how towns, cities and countries can sustain themselves. It is also important on a larger scale. For instance, hardly any products are made…

Indigenous Women Practice Medicine in Oaxaca

The traditional medicine women of Mexico have had "bitter struggles with official associations of physicians, but have come up with a solution. They have formed meetings and collaboration groups to help benefit indigenous women. "Their involvement has been a key factor in cataloguing the plants, herbs, and practices, and in promoting the conservation and availability of curative products and practices". An overall health program has also been created with the help of UNICEF, the National…

A Resilient Ojai

Ojai has turned away from tourism to resilience. The Soule Park Golf Course has been turned into two Resilience Shelters and a huge farmer's market that has replaced the previously small one. The Ojai Valley Country Club has been tore down to make way for a Resilient Medical Center, used as a hospital, but specifically for times of emergency. Lastly a number of local organic farms have sprouted up around Ojai, increasing the amount of local food and the ability for Ojai to…

Ushahidi in Ojai

Ushahidi would be a great tool for the people of Ojai. Forest fires, earthquakes and floods have been somewhat frequent over the last ten years. Floods have demolished people's house and blocked all roads going into and out of Ojai. This is a great example of how Ushahidi could be used in Ojai. When one's house is flooded, they can send out an SMS message to Ushahidi, so either someone nearby or the fire department can instantly assist…

Ashoka Fellows Water Innovation

For my water visionary I chose an association rather than a single person. Ashoka Fellows is a "global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs". (See my ACT 1 blog post) In terms of water innovation, Ashoka is "convening groups of leading social entrepreneurs to combine experiences, identify underlying insights and trends in their innovative solutions, and hatch new actions based on the results". It has brought 4 groups together, with a total of 33 members. They have created…

UN Stresses Need for Women's Places in Democracy

On May 4, 2011, UN officials stressed the need for participation of women in democracies and decision making. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon states that "while women’s political participation improves democracy, the reverse is also true: democracy is an incubator for gender equality". Female participation in democracy will provide "public space for discussion and women's empowerment', "enable women's groups to mobilize and help women "realize their political, civil , economic and social…

2020 World Water Day

On March 24, World Water Day will be simply celebrated by not using showers, baths or taps for a day and bathing and purifying water from natural sources. Around the world, Lakes and rivers will be bathed in, rather than a shower or bath. At these bodies of water, Solvatten (See my LEARN4) and other water purifying units will be used to provide water for the many who are taking part in World Water Day. It's main message will be, of course to save water, but especially realize that using taps… Continue

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.

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.
