Salt Water and Aluminum fuel cell to run a nightlight.

I have three kids so nightlights for rooms, halls and bathrooms are common. This post on Instructables shows how to create a solder-less fuel cell to run a small light using only common materials like paper, salt water and aluminum foil.…

I heard about a merry-go-round used to generate electricity for a school. A quick Gooogle search turned up Empower Playgrounds, a group using kid power to light up off the grid houses and villages.

I also came across an Instructables blog on creating your own swing set for kids to generate electricity.…

We're eating a home-cooked meal at the family farm. We raise horses for pleasure, goats and chickens for meat, milk and eggs. Tonight we're having salad, a light soup, roasted chicken, homemade ice cream and wine. The greens for the salad all come from the garden, as do tomatoes and veggies for the soup. Corn from the back field is roasted with the chicken for a hearty main course. The ice cream was made by the kids using the Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker (sort of a soccer ball with a chamber… Continue

Mission 2: Learn about local food insecurity

I live in the US and in a relatively well-to-do state and community so food security was not high in my awareness. I have to say that if nothing else Evoke is definitely and eye opener.

Like most places generally speaking hunger is a condition of poverty in my state. I'm used to thinking of poverty as a Third World issue but I came across this stat online.

Mission 1: Where will you be?

In 2020 I plan on being finished with my doctorate in Physical Therapy. I plan on spending quite a bit of time working with patients to mitigate pain and generally improve their lives. I am also contemplating several ideas on how to spread basic concepts of physical therapy, massage and NLP/Hypnosis used in conjunction with each other to the public at large for use in health maintenance and prevention.

I would also like to spend time as a financial counselor for people in…

Mission 1: Find a Hero to shadow

This was relatively simple for me as I was and am already "shadowing" a hero of mine, author, teacher, martial artist and innovator Steven Barnes.

My interest in his work began with a love of his books particularly The Kundalini Equation and Lion's Blood. From there I subscribed to his blog and was intrigued about his take on living your life as if you were on the archetypal Hero's Journey. In fact that's one of the reasons I signed up for Evoke. I was excited…

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.

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.
