Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Mission 10

One social issue that was not discussed directly in Urgent Evoke was climate change. Although many of the issues were interrelated to climate change, it was not directly tackled through Urgent Evoke. I think that this is an important issue that could be discussed.

It would be interesting to see what people would learn if climate change was a part of urgent evoke. Perhaps someone would even come up with a world-changing project to help solve the issue of climate change!

Mission 4

If I were designing an event for World Water Day in 2020, I would plan it at a college campus like UF. It would be somewhere like Plaza of the Americas where many people pass by. I would display statistics that get people thinking about how much water they use and waste compared to the rest of the world.

For example, for every extra minute you take a shower, this many gallons of water are wasted. This may encourage people to conserve water and to not waste it. I would have several…

Mission 8

If I were an elder in my community, I would pass on the advice to take care of your community. Do not expect that it will take care of itself or that someone else in the community will take care of it. Step up, and take care of the community like you would take care of your own home. Clean up the beaches or lakes or go out and pick up trash.

If you take care of the land and nature around you, it will continue to flourish.

Mission 6

I discovered a positive story when researching the website for this blog post. According to www.unwomen.org, there is an initiative going on in Papua New Guinea where the markets are being made safer for the women vendors and children.

Port Moresby is the location of a market where the vendors are about 80% women. These women were often harassed, were victims of violence, and were also forced to endure inadequate facilities. However, because of…

Mission 5

There are many new innovative ideas being thought up all the time about the future of money. There are cards, apps, and virtual currency being developed, and I think all of these inventions are going to change the future of money. One idea that I thought was especially interesting was found on www.wired.com, and it is called GetGiving.

GetGiving is an app that would allow people to donate amounts of money to charities and organizations easily and…

Mission 2

According to sustainabletable.org, there are many factors and challenges that cause food insecurity. One of the challenges that was listed was food distribution. According to the site, there is currently enough food produced to feed everyone, but distributing the food is one of the challenges that affect food security.

Another challenge that contributes to food insecurity is the environment and natural disasters. When natural disasters such as droughts occur they affect the…

When it comes to crisis communication, there was one insight that I had never thought of. The insight "Coming to Terms With Uncertainty" was very interesting to me, as I had never considered this. It would obviously be difficult for a journalist to inform or warn the public about a crisis if there is still uncertainty concerning the crisis. It would be especially difficult if the crisis was something that there was very little research about, as it would not be easy to give the public advice…

LifeStraw is an awesome innovation that could have the potential to bring millions of people clean drinking water. The straw acts as a filter while it is being used, reducing contaminants that could be life-threatening. LifeStraw is already making a difference by donating an LifeStraw institutional water purifier every time someone purchases a LifeStraw filter. These water purifiers provide a child in Africa with clean drinking water for a wh*** school year.

This innovation is…

Imagine 3

My favorite holiday is Christmas, and my family ALWAYS decorates a Christmas tree. Some Christmases we even decorate two trees. We also decorate the outside of our house with Christmas lights. In 2020, I imagine that we would have some way to power the Christmas lights using sustainable energy. Maybe we will harness solar energy during the day and that will be enough energy to light up the house and tree all evening.

I would also imagine that there will be a form of sustainable energy…

A site called springwise.com had a technology listed that was developed by former Apple engineers that learns how to conserve energy. The innovation is called Nest, and it is a smart thermostat that learns about its owners and adapts based on their habits.

The thermostat records the usage and patterns of the owners, and learns where it can make changes in order to save energy. For instance, if the owner of the house always turns off the air before going to work Monday-Friday, but…

Mission 1

In exactly 10 years I see myself working as a special events coordinator. I do not know exactly where I would like to live, but I hope to be somewhere near the water (either the ocean or a lake). I hope to be married with children, and would like to be very involved in our church. I would also like to take frequent mission trips with my church and family, I have a big heart for missions.

Mission 1

My favorite tip would be "what you have matters more than what you lack." I think that sometimes we look at a problem in our world and want to help fix it, but we feel like we do not have what it takes to make an impact. We may think that we don't have the time, money, or knowledge to truly solve the issue. While it is true that it takes many resources to fix many of the world's problems, we should be focusing on the resources that we do have rather than the ones we lack. By looking at the…

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

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. 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.

Where I will be in ten years.

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 with…See More
