Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Its been 10years since the first ever World Cup to be hosted in Africa, and more specifically in South Africa, 10years ago i couldn't imagine a future this vibrant and bright. My generation is the now movers and shakers. Through the past we have adopted the strategy of each one teaching one, we are owners of our own companies and employing scores and scores of the youth. This has obviously been possible also with the help of the government through youth and skills development agencies whereby corporate and private companies get incentives in employing the youth.

The world cup stimulated the economy and us as the young people continued the momentum and by learning to be entrepreneurial. The west has also addressed the injustice it has served Africa, and doing right by investing more in Africa more than ever, the days of Africans living way below the poverty line are becoming a thing of the past, people are less ignorant and can pick leaders that are not corrupt, thanks to educational initiatives, and also because its been 26 years since South Africa had introduced free education to government school pupils. AIDS is also an issue of the past in the country i live in, the South African population has started seeing a better future, therefore self preservation is the buzz attitude.

Its beautiful living in South Africa, the hills are still green, the rivers are still flowing endlessly, people are still smiling, Africa is once again alive with possibilities.....

Thabiso,

That is really a wonderful dream... I really feel that I've visited the future and seen whatever you have mentioned about. What do you mean by "strategy of each one teaching one, we are owners of our own companies and employing scores and scores of the youth."

I like the fact that you used the opportunity that your country got to host the 2010 world cup to your advantage... that you made a number of achievements out of it!

@Bongumusa, thanks for the heads up, i will most certainly have a look at your profile,

@Ronald, the "strategy of each one teaching one" refers to us as individuals, having significant unique and specials skills that no one else has being able to share those skills with our fellow peers and friends, that way we empowering each other in terms of skill development and all, its is almost similar to the saying "sharing is caring",

@Puleng, more or less yes! but we all know that there's no such thing as a free lunch nonetheless the help is much needed, perhaps i am being myopic in my thinking, but i do feel that the west will not help without expecting to get anything back, the World Bank has atleast contributed by coming up with initiatives like EVOKE - through such forums and discussions, someone, somewhere will say something that will ignite that social responsibility spark in someone...

I sincerely hope all this comes true. It's nice to think a wh*** continent could benefit so much from what used to be a pig's bladder being kicked around! I hope so.

Very much taken with the idea of "one teaching one"! Thanks for this vision and what you have shared.

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***tances 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.
