A crash course in changing the world.
I would hope that women I had empowered to pursue and education will have taken full advantage of the opportunity presented and have received an education that will improve their lives and the lives around them. I would hope that some women had gone so far that they were now in positions of authority and were helping multitudes of people with perhaps the same problems we are discussing here on evoke. They are making a great change in the world around them.

Coming from a line of very strong women I have always had support towards women's equal opportunities. Though I haven't gotten around to completing this objective I'm sure that once I explain it to my family they will have no problem contributing. I believe they would most likely contribute to something with women's education as my grandmother was the first woman in our family to pursue an education and it wasn't until her late late 50's when she had raised all of her kids.

I would like to interview United Nations Special Envoy Gordon Brown and ask how he would create an atmosphere plagued by a Jihadist group, safe for young girls to go to school. Boko Haram kidnapped many little girls in the act to discouraging them from attending school and in doing so many students no longer attend school in Nigeria and such places. My questions would be how is the U.N. going to support the attempt to keep schools safe? How could he also educate parents on the necessity of…Continue

In the barracks it is sometimes we cadets find necessary to barter. Just tonight I missed dinner and was out of money so I bartered some blue books and computer paper (which the lab was out of), and help with spanish homework for Chinese food and it worked out very well without the need for monetary funds.

I believe that DIY Currency and Paypal have it correct with the methods of utilizing currency in the future. Tangible funds are seemingly becoming more and more burdensome and obsolete. People want access to money and not only as much as their wallet can hold. With electronic methods of delivering, sharing, or even coming up with currency, controlling ones funds will be more convenient but their are quite a few cons to have access to all ones money through a direct source. Nevertheless this…Continue

I'm eating a meal in a small Lexington County restaurant. The food is not only cheap, healthy, but it was all locally grown and raised and the majority of the cost of the food went back to the local farmers to assist with continuing their operations. The meal is grilled chicken the poultry raised in the county, while the vegetable are from no more than ten minutes away. The wheat bread was made from wheat harvested locally. All food in the restaurant that is not eaten is composted and given…Continue

I actually have a number of neighbors with who I help grow fruits and veggies. We have in previous years taken these produce into the town and contribute it to the food drive in town that delivers to the needy. Many of the individuals at the food drive say the watermelon and cuc**bers I grew went to good use. We are thinking of making a pool land where everyone contributes to farming, seeds, tending their section of crop and can take as much as they need for themselves but they should…Continue

On the food map there were no places were pinpointed in North America. What I do know is that South Carolina farmers are having an issue with crop yielding do to lack of nutrition in the soil. This is do to many things such is over sowing of crops and use of pesticides. Pesticides are a big deal as they poison the soil and much like salt can make it very infertile. Some of the innovation they are making towards enriching the soil again is using better fertilizers. The big innovation is…Continue

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…Continue

I chose Julia Watson as my social innovator hero and shadow. She is showing herself to be a leader in biodiversity conservation community. She is helping support local conservation communities and inhabitants of cultural landscapes. She does this by fostering relationships and building allies that support each other giving maximum development impact "with minimum impact pressure". She truly is making a change and is someone to look up in this community of heroes.

I learned the secret to create "transparent" technologies. There is no set boundaries to the innovation that someone can put forth for the greater good. Who says that you can't build children's playground equipment such as swings that could power a water pump to a village somewhere. Or that we can't create windmills that are inside of the spaces in mountainous areas to power and assist the local people. I truly believe that their are so many technologies that are right in front us out in the…Continue
