Wow, first of all I have to admit that I´m really impressed by the idea of Jessica (and also Hugo), I´ve never thought of generating energy from playing football and think it´s pretty cool, because it combines fun and (energy) productivity and - lets be honest - what can be better than that?;-)

Anyway for this task I´ve searched the web and here is what I found:

There are several (and even german) websites with competitions or lists of social start-ups, such as http://www.schwabfoundseoy.org/de/competitions/competition/135 or http://www.seakademie.de/kompass.aspx , so that might be helpful for you:-).

There is as project called "KAITO", which was invented by Wolfgang Hofstätter and Heidi Schiller during a trip to Africa and is a specialist for sustainable innovations and investments in western Africa, where everyone can participate in as an investor or an CSR-mentor (Corporate Social Responsibility, this one is mainly for corporations).
The conecept behind KAITO is quite simple and works something like this:

As there are nearly 80% of the population without (permanent) electricity they have to rely on things like petroleum or batteries and this is where KAITO joins the game.
They developed a model called "Energie-Kiosk", which is a decentralised and solar powered energy system.
The energy is produced directly where it is needed to reduce costs and to remain manageable, but also helps the villages to get a modern energy system step-by-step.
Everybody can use the energy produced in there, but if someone needs more energy than for everyday use, there are individual systems, too, for example for local craftsmen or farmers etc. .

I think this project is pretty cool, as it generates electricity directly from sun energy and helps the villages to become more and more energy-independent and also reduces costs by building the energy stations directly on the spot.

This link provides an image gallery straight from building up such an energy station, so that you can imagine how it looks like:

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.
