In 2020 Secure Safety and Rights for Afghan Families

Afghan society is struggling because of the war. According to World Factbook in 2010, Afghanistan is an impoverished and least developed country, one of the world's poorest.

Women against violence

I recently read the article, "New study shows four women raped every 5 minutes in the DRC." I was truly shocked by the way women were treated in Democratic Republic of the Congo ()DRC). I think that the law system and police system do not provide enough security to the citizens, especially to the women.

I think this is a severe issue that should be addressed by UN as soon as possible. The frequent sexual towards women will soon lead to a higher rate of crime, a rapid spread of Sexual… Continue

Local Exchange Trading Systems (LETS) also known as LETSystems are locally initiated, democratically organised, not-for-profit community enterprises that provide a community information service and record transactions of members exchanging goods and services by using the currency of locally created LETS Credits. In some places, e.g. Toronto, the scheme has been called the Local Employment and Trading System. In New South Wales, Australia, they were known as Local Energy Transfer… Continue

In 2020, can you put a filled 2L plastic bottle in your toilet tank?

There are 6,708,259 houses in Canada, as of October 16th 2009. If every home in 2020 can put a filled 2L bottle in the tank of the toilette, you can save 2L of water for every flush. If each house is averaging 1 flush a day, then the Canadians can save 13416518 L each day! This is an easy task and hopefully if we can get every home in the world to do this, it will definitely make a huge impact and provides at a bit relief to the water crisis.

Water Crisis solution - Sand dams

Sand dams, which are constructed out of concrete barriers 1-5m high and backfilled with sand, were voted as the best idea from five different proposals. Each idea had a champion who argued how they would use the virtual prize of $1bn at the Earthwatch debate entitled From tsunami to drought to solve the world's water crisis.

My favorite holiday in 2020

My favorite holiday has to be Christmas. I would like to share this holiday with my parents, so I will probably be driving a hybrid vehicle to my parents' house. The car will be my first one, I chose this hybrid car because of it's fuel-efficiency and the fact that it emits less emission. The reason why it's hybrid is that, it's powered by fuel and electricity, which saves gas and helps the environment.

I would be in my home in a city in Canada or USA. At around 7 o'clock, I will be having dinner with my wife and kids, as usual. I bought the sea food, Salmon along with other vegetables from a local super market. My wife and I enjoy cooking together and salmon is one of our favorite dishes. We first bread the salmon fillet then use flat pan to cook it then serve it with some lemon and salad. The dinner is extremely tasty! Our kids loved the salmon as well, tonight's dinner was happy and… Continue

37 million people were staving in Near East and North Africa;

53 million starving people were from Latin America… Continue

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.

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
