I think that the creation of an alternate type of currency would be the best solution to the financial crisis that is going on, pretty much worldwide. A universal "money" would be a set value that could not change because it would be the only one. This way the value does not waver and people will spend less time having to raising prices because of the decrease in value of their currency. Trades will be equal and measured as such. Less money will be lot in between and the financial positions of… Continue

Uh oh...

Ok I have to say, my heart was thumping and I was sweating when i recieved the bill and it was in Canadian money. I had to do it. I had decided to try paying for something in a currency I had never used before and now was the time. I got out the money to pay and when I thought I had the right amount I handed it over to the register worker. Phew! I had done it and I was overjoyed. I have to say though, it may not seem like much but when you have to use a wh*** different system you really have to… Continue

Powerful... unlimited!

This project has succeeded! Women are powerful leaders throughout the globe and peace and prosperity has followed. Women are no longer denied rights and are treated as equals by everyone, as it should be. This is a huge step on the road to an ideal future. I know we can get their, but not without the help of these amazing women leaders. They can and will be the saviors of tomorrow!!!

Groups within my community are always working towards goals to help other people, so i though why not women in other countries? I told volunteers within my city and they at once leapt at the chance to help. They are working to raise awareness about these issues and i think this will make the future a much brighter thing.

Ushahidi? Seems out there.

This knowledge sharing idea is definately out there, but in a good way. I think that in the future my community may experience a food shortage due to our reliance on outside sources that may be cut off at any time without any warning. At this point knowledge sharing might help us to get food from other resources and help us to survive through the onslaught of hunger.

This seems hopeful and will never happen without the full cooperation of everyone but i believe it would create and ideal plan to create a resilient future.

I've shared a map with you called Resilience!:…

Me, Myself, and My Future Self?

The year 2020 may seem far away but it is just around the corner and it really makes you think... where will I be when that time comes. I will be working at my dream job, as an executive director of engineering design of environmentally friendly products. I will live somewhere out near nature, away from the noise and pollution of most city environments. By this time food problems across the globe will be dissolving and people around the globe will be developing good social environments.… Continue

Cuisine of the future, straight from the backyard!

In the year 2020 i will be eating dinner with my friends at my very own house. The meal will be a fresh garden salad and special vegetarian sandwiches as the main course. The ingredients will all come from my very own backyard plantation. My tractor that i will use to harvest all the food grown will be solar powered and the spare food will be used to help feed other people. The world will be a much better place then and everyone in it will be well fed and happy. I just can't wait for this day… Continue

Helping...One garden at a time

I have recently helped my friend start a garden in his backyard. We planted tomatoes, lettuce, an orange tree, basil, and a wh*** slew of other plants. I hope that this garden will flourish and that this will give him better food security and save him some money in the future. He says he loves his new garden and can't wait to see what I do next. Just remember... you might not be able to secure a community but you can definitely help the community secure itself!!!

Looking Forward...

Though my community has enough food there is a huge issue here. In my community we have no "Food Security" whatsoever. All of the food we have here is brought in from other areas. Short of the windowbox. some people may keep. We really need to get some farms and gardens created here in our community. Our people need to get some agricultural areas and finally make it so that we might have the ability to fend for ourselves if the day comes that our food supplies our cut off. This will also help… 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

Stinging Nettle

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

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.
