Chinese New Year

As the title implies, I am celebrating Chinese New Year somewhere in Southeast Asia in 2020. The festivities are under way and there is magic in the air. The pounding drums, the cool night air, and the paper lanterns lighting the streets create a spiritual atmosphere. All of the houses in this city are powered by the hydro-electric dam we finished building last year along the river. The futures market and commodities exchange we implemented to help farmers better understand the demand for… Continue

Rube Goldberg Cellphone Charger

Let me preface this by saying, "Please don't write me to tell me how awesome my picture is. I already know it rocks." That being said, I would like to take a moment to explain just WHAT this is ... this contraption can ( and probably would be ) a wall mount, either indoors of out of doors. As rain water is collected (or you pour water into the topmost spout) it runs down the chutes and turns the water wheels which are all connected to motors, batteries, etc.for generation and storage. The…

20/20 Vision of my 2020 Dinner

I will be settling in around a table in a small, rural village. I am in China, and my most recent project, Securing Food Supplies for Rural and Remote Populations, is well under way. This is the first iteration of the project, and my team and I are celebrating our success with a few Chinese farmers that we have come to be very close to in recent months. The food that we are eating was harvested from a special tract of land that we have aided in constructing for the village. Our team provided… Continue

Food Security

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how much land/resources would be needed for a person to consume the recommended daily amount of nutrients suggested by the USDA's Food Pyramid. (http://www.mypyramid.gov) For example, if a person should consume 200lbs of wheat, 75lbs of fruit, and 120lbs of meat products each year, then how many acres of land would be needed to grow the wheat and fruit bearing trees, how many chickens/cows/fish would have to be…

Grow Out to Eat

The average vegetable travels over 3,000 miles before you eat it! By then it may have lost as much as 70% of its nutrients!*** What better way to prevent this from happening (and help the environment) than to grow some of what you eat? Even one meal a week made from your own garden, or purchased from a local farmer's market can have a positive impact on the environment and your local community!

Why not grow out to eat?…

"Extreme Cold Triggers Hunger in Mongolia"

Finding an outstanding example of malnurishment and hunger here in the U.S. can be a difficult task indeed. The only people here who are starving are people who choose to. In the U.S., we have food stamps, so you don't even need to work to eat. However, there are other places in the world where they cannot take a meal for granted because they never know when they will get to eat again. One such place is Mongolia. Severe swings in the temperature have left them with a looming…

10 years from now ...

I am currently finishing my education at a four year university. I am 23 years old today, and I will have obtained my Bachelor's of Interdisciplinary Studies in two more years. I am majoring in Finance, Economics, Management, and Chinese. For the rest of my life, all I want to do is start businesses, and if my ventures can change people's lives in a positive way, all the better. The reason for taking Chinese is that China is a developing country, they have a relatively low standard of living… Continue

ACT1

I have chosen to follow one of my favorite entrepreneurs, Guy Kawasaki. I don't just like him because we have the same first name, or because I used to ride a Kawasaki Ninja, or because his last name is similar to another hero of mine, Robert Kyosaki; I admire him because he is a super successful entrepreneur who takes social responsibility seriously. By listening to what he has to say, you can tell that he is a caring individual who doesn't mind giving his time to help others. I have chosen to… Continue

LEARN1

Economic Sustainability - An important aspect for any social innovator to consider. In order to achieve growth, there must be a solid foundation on which the market can expand. The most exciting aspect of any developing country/economy is the opportunities available to the innovator. Eventually, there will be a need for car dealerships, retail outlets, movie theaters, etc. in a developing country, but first, you must construct an infrastructure (roads, water, electricity, cell phone towers,… Continue

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

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.
