Earthquake in New York?

Yes, it is possible! I have been living in New York for a few years and during this time the thought of earthquakes never crossed my mind. You think, living in a big city that your capable of dealing with any natural disaster, that you are untouchable, the same way someone in the titanic may have felt about their big "unsinkable" ship. Though I have come to learn that the bigger you are, the harder you fall.

In the titanic, if it had been a smaller ship more people may have lived, since… Continue

Children Inovators.

"think like a child – children have no limit to their thinking"



Children are the future, stands for more than just their rising generation. Children's minds are very open and wide to all possibilities. A child can truly believe in imaginary people who can fly, and who have magic. Children believe in hope even when in the worst situation, children have no doubt, or understanding of pain. Children are innocent and not corrupt. If you can harness this way of thinking, this unbelievable… Continue

The Sun is Energy

In my home, currently we have a fire escape facing the noon sun everyday. Except for in the rain that is. This week we will install solar panels onto our fire escape to generate electricity to power simple things like our television, lamps, and possibly even fridge. We currently use our apartment electricity for most things but upon discovering solar panels, we can rewire it to the panels, and even use a solar powered cellphone, or homephone to make phone calls. The Earth uses the sun to power… Continue

The windmills fuel a party

And the windmills spin round and round.



My job was to create a garden of food for people, and gather groups for projects. After our

team saw the first sprouts of our planting we decided to celebrate. The

irrigation systems are in place, and the soil is breathing new life

into this world of hunger. The local people are celebrating, dancing,

and feasting once more but this time upon their own harvests.

Another group had started windmills, which are now finally… Continue

Acting to help

Though currently I am in a bad situation at home with food and money, living on my own with my boyfriend at 17 is hard. This week we helped conserve energy by unplugging everything when not using it, and by keeping the lights off as much as possible. We planted strawberries Friday, and they should be sprouting soon. I have started a job at a local flower shop to learn more about gardening to plant in our community. I hope to save money, and energy by making our own food at home.

A feast in a starving country

Tonight is March 10, 2020. Regardless of the fact that I am in the

starving country, tacos will be served tonight. After gathering my team

of 20 today in town I brought them all to my temporary home, with their

children, brothers, and sisters all included. Before making the journey I

was sure to run to the store. I plan to live here like everyone else,

off of the resources but for this first day, this first meeting we will

feast. I brought with me 10 bags of fresh… Continue

2020 Where will I be

2020, Upstate New York.



On the winding rural street stands a large white house, with blue

shutters on every window, open and streaming with sunlight. The yard was

filled with bright flowers, blooming in every color of the rainbow, a

beautiful natural garden. Cutting the garden in half was a thin

cobblestone pathway leading to the tall columns around the entrance of

the house. A driveway on the side of the house leading to a detached,

yet color… Continue

Underlying problems of Food Security

"Food security refers to the availability of food and one's access to it." -en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_security

This quote is the definition of food security, however food security is an

issue that is a result of our economic failure. Economic security is

what the true problem is that is rapidly spreading around this country.

Even in our own homes, right under our noses we are having major issues.

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.
