Just 25$ for changing someones life

I've followed a link from another player and donated at www.waterforpeople.org .

They're helping all over the world by supporting local solutions and educate the people to handle their problems themselves. At this time, its the bet thing we can do.

The harsh solution

A mind blowing, changing experience?



Well, reducing the amount of supplied water for one day.



Harsh, but the only way people here would understand the daily dependence of water. If thats not possible (most likely), the government could force the media for 5 minutes at the best evening time to discuss this matter. If thats not possible too, the government could proclaim a "week of water". Public media most likely would follow this lead with some doc**entations and… Continue

Bacteria for clearing

A problem with wells and other solutions which require maintenance from the locals, is that many lands with water problems are very unstable. Therefore, nobody can guarantee a lasting solution.



So I wounder, how can >lasting< clear water provided? With the use of technology,that does not require any human interference, once installed. Microbes for example. Unseen, self-reproducing and, genetically engineered, able to clear water.



I'm not sure, if there is an existing… Continue

Something we all can do

Designing your own sustainable energy charger is cool, but how many people are capable of such a thing? Not many. But many people can buy a good solution, so I did. I bought a handy solar energy based charger. It's very simple and charges all my handheld devices. Good, fast, cheap (in the long run). And very handy on holiday, some place with no electricity or not the right plug.



It's not the same I've bought, but similar:…

Sustainable energized car

In 2020, I've driving my new electric car. Its fulled only with sustainable energy.

Handling is fine, design like a piece of poetry. But behold the technical part, it's the thing you want to met in your dreams.



Max. Distance: 1500km;

It begun with 300-400km, but progress isn't stoppable, new inventions in nanotechnology improved the capability of the old lithium based batteries by over 250%.



Consumption of energy: 2l;

"Liter" isn't the measure in these days,… Continue

The forgotten power of water

A century ago, humans build lots of hydroelectric plants or used the power of water mechanical for watermills.



Then, more efficient, bigger power plants replaced the distributed energy production. But in the 21th, small hydroelectric plants could have a renaissance. In fact, cost-efficient small hydro plant are already developed.



See for yourself:…

The solution is already in our hands

The first link isn't functioning anymore. Here is the (still) running map: Interactive hunger map.



My father was a farmer himself (now retired) and shared some interesting insights about the northern agriculture in Germany in the last 30 years with me.



First of all: The green revolution (= increasing productivity with modern knowledge, genetic engineering, fertilizer and so on) is the basic for affordable, secure… Continue

Help today with zero effort

I don't need to produce, just change my behavior and give some incentives to my social surrounding to follow my lead.



I'm a vegetarian, and can honestly say, it is one of my best decisions of all time. I'm more healthy, my diet is helping the poor to feet themselves (meat: needs a lot of food to provide less food), is helping the food prices decline (supply and demand, more supply: lower price), helping the global warming (less co2, because animal produce a lot of it), helping the… Continue

Epic win for Germany

In 2020, I'm eating with my family. It is a vegetarian meal, because a rising amount of the population in Germany understands now, what it means to be a vegetarian: Very tasteful meals, better health, better environment, good conscience (not just because of the animals itself, but also for preventing a global food crisis), lower costs (moor vegetarians means more available food and therefore lower prices) and far more benefits.



The best thing: My grandma prepared it. Who thought,… Continue

10 years are unpredictable

Life is not predictable. But I have certain principles and goals, driving me towards a future in a company with meaningful business. By meaningful, I refer to inventions which are likely to improve human capabilities (for everyone).



So, hopefully I will be there, in this company and doing my daily job in context of management, information processing or programming. And having some of our companies nice (capability) augmentations by myself. Would help finding a solution for the food… Continue

Help self-reliance (without going to the contry yourself)

Provide skills, not just finished technologies. The current revolution in design for developing countries is the notion of co-creation, of teaching the skills necessary to create the solution, rather than simply providing the solution. By involving the community throughout the design process, you can help equip people to innovate and contribute to the evolution of the product. Furthermore, they acquire the skills needed to create solutions to a much wider variety of…

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***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…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. 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.

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
