Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Here is my contribution to the ongoing questions and answers that Agent Baird started:

1)How did you hear about the EVOKE network, and what made you decide to join?
I actually heard about it on CNN.com. As a online gamer it caught my attention, and at first I will admit I was skeptical and didn't join it, I spent a good while reading over the site, people's posts...and talking with my husband. I decided that I was intrested in playing the game, but I wanted to start with week 2 simply because one day wasn't enough time to tackle the first mission.
2)Name one person on here you got to know or would like to get to know? Make a good friend out of this, the closer we bring the network the easier and more enjoyable it is to work together. Try to make it a daily thing to check up on their profile, just like the mentors.
I really haven't gotten to know many people just yet...we will see how that goes in time.
3)What is the worst crisis to you in the world currently that requires Evoke's attention? This one I am expecting a lot of different answers.
Personally I believe the major world's crisis is compassion. There is so much fear and corruption out there that it has hardened the hearts of the entire world. There is not enough love. Sure it sounds hippy...but if you look back those people were happy (despite the drugs) and they wern't afraid to stand up for the change they believed in.
People are too concerned about theirs and their own, not how it affects someone else down the street, or hurts the planet.
4)What is your background? Where were you raised, city or farm? Family members? Married, Single, Engaged? Cats or Dogs? I am not trying to pry personal information from you. Like I said before, the more you get to know everyone, the closer you get, the more enjoyment of working with together as a team.
I was fortunate in my life to be able to grow up in both an urban and a rural enviorment. The first 10 years of my life was in a city, then my family moved to the country where I lived there till I graduated High School. At first I hated life in the country, there was nothing to do, everything was 30 miles away in any direction....and when I had the chance I ran screaming from the rural life and back to the city, only to move back to the same hometown I grew up in 3 years ago to be closer to family.
I realize now how fortunate I am to live in the country. Sure going shopping or wanting to see a movie is an inconvience and we have to drive somewhere else to do things, even to eat out in a nice resturant....however when I watch the news on TV or read a paper, I am reminded on how good small towns have it. Less crime, our kids can play without fear, less traffic, noise....everything about it.
I am married to the Universe's most wonderful man! I believe that with every ounce of my being. I unfortunately had a bad roll of the dice with genetics and am not a very healthy person suffering from many physical (and emotional) aliments...and I have a husband who not only understands and is compassionate, but goes above and beyond to make sure that we are safe, secure and to take care of me and our 11 year old son.
Oh and I love puppies and bunnies and I collect black and white cows.
5)Find a quote that inspires you that might inspire others. If you are religious, put a piece of scripture. I think some of the more powerful blogs and videos on here that I have read have been, true personal opinions "based" off research. Not just a bunch of stats. So I want to get that personal gears running in your head.
"I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators—they fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What's to be ashamed of?" - Barbra Streisand

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.
