A crash course in changing the world.
My own design thank you...
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.

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…Continue
