Chapter 4: Mix it DJ!

His name is William Kamkwamba. When his village crops started dropping in yield his family began to starve. It seems that the climate had indeed changed, an all to common story, so much so that plants would not grow.

Chapter 3: The past, present and future

For the most people in our current world, I think imagining is the biggest challenge. We are trained out of it are we not? How many times have you been told 'that is a waste of time', 'learning that wont make any money', 'that won't get you a job or career'.

The Story of Stuff

http://www.storyofstuff.org/


If you guys haven't seen this yet, do yourself a massive favour and watch it. It is a very concise, well presented outline on our current consumer culture. Unlike other information out there, this video discusses the current situation, but also speculates how this came to be in the first place. For instance, the original intention behind why we have this buying culture (which may have been created for…

Chapter 2a: Dilemma of Heroes!

Now that I have started looking for heroes I have found one, Ze Frank, and many others.... oh my..... dilemma. I mean now there are other heroes I want to have to stalk as my evoke hero. But which one do I cover?


There is also Sir Ken Robinson, who stands for transforming education in the world. He talks about standardisation of our education systems and the subsequent marginalisation of our future possibilities as a result of this. Isn't it true that a common question that…

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

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.

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.
