My five UEvoke Heroes, Part V: You already know who it is =)

OK, the series is over.

I wanted to finish mentioning the Agent who I consider contributed the most to EVOKE’s community, at least in quality, which is what matters.

This agent had a positive, productive, and epic win experience on EVOKE and it was only

due their human qualities.

I believe this Agent’s performance thrived and made the game Evoke succeed…

My five UEvoke Heroes, Part IV: Michele Baron

I have to mention another female hero. You are all free to think of me as a helpless

feminist, I am going to be a gender activist (sometimes feminist, sometimes

maschilist) until we reach the required healthy balance.

Michele Baron, from Virginia (US) is my hero because she is the most tenacious Evoke

player of us all. Michele was ninged once on her…

My five UEvoke Heroes, Part III: Gilda Lorena Arias

Agent Gilda Lorena is from Paraguay, she is my hero because she had the bright idea of

presenting a reflexive exercise, which consisted on an a****sment of the impact of

her “ACT#” objectives to her physical environment
(what we still call “the real


Most likely…

My five UEvoke Heroes, Part I: SAMIRAN ROY

I will start writing about you guys, ATT: the order does not imply any preference oK?

My fellow agent Samiran Roy is a hero of this game because he managed to get everyone

involved in his “comes and goes”, I don’t know exactly how he does it, but we are always there, commenting his posts, participating of his polls.

Samiran kept this site alive during…

My five UEvoke Heroes, Part II: Chris Ke Sihai

Chris is an English teacher, he lives in Taipei (Taiwan) and he is my hero because he managed to get Evoke’s rules changed so that all Prize Categories are now Open to All

. Chris did it in a neat way (no bloodshed); he also achieved this really fast (less that 12 hours, I was online witnessing the transformation). Isn’t…

A realistic hope for a dinner in 10 years

March, 10th in 2020

I am about to enjoy dinner with my family. It is a special occasion, we want to celebrate last week’s victory: governments forming the ALCA (North-South America’s Free Trade Agreement) finally banned transgenic crops for good. This has its origin back in 2010 with a petition initiated in Canada:…

What they really need is sometimes very different to what they really want

Hi all,

I did not take this idea from "Exhibit A" (
33 secrets of social innovation) Because, I come from "the source of our concerns" and I have travelled all the way to the opposite shore of the western civilization, I think I am entitled to offer my own viewpoint.

I want to draw attention to an important subject that often arises in disscussions… Continue

LEARN 9: the Secrets of Crisis Communication

Mission 9’s assignment bears special importance for me, because I am a Pharmacist, this means that I would be in the frontline in case of any outbreak. I will have to be able to handle the situation. I will have to deal with my fear -well in advance- in order to be ready to offer support to the public. But this is not enough; I have to be aware of the health…

USHAHIDI: making sense out of violence in Bolivia

The most likely social disruption to happen in Cochabamba city, which the third in importance of my home country Bolivia on upcoming months are urban riots that will give raise to police riots and all this violence in consequence, most probably will result in a siege. All the process can occur in matter of 3-5 days, whereas, the…

Following the 6th Objective of Alchemy’s assignment I started a funding operation among my friends and family directed to help empower one girl or woman with better access to education or economic opportunity.

talking to my people about the aim of the founding operation, I came acquainted that most of them were not able to understand the difference between giving money away for plain CHARITY to the third world and donating to support a… Continue

DO NOT donate money if you know you can TRY HARDER

I am aware that Alchemy’s assignment for ACT6 consists on raising funds for improving access to education or economic growth. I tried that, it is reflected in my post about direct investment versus "Dead Aid" .

Nevertheless, I could not help bringing up the fact that donating money is usually the most

effortless resource that we all turn to when we need to…

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. 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.
