***BREAKING NEWS: First Interest-free Bank Opens in Angola - Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation To Thank

Jaime Sloane with Evoke10 News here reporting live from The Philanthrocapital Bank in Luanda, the capital of the African nation Angola. This new type of bank that just opened here in Luanda is not your typical bank. Instead of fleecing customers on interest rates and bank fees, The Philanthrocapital Bank offers interest-free loans and fee-free banking solutions to local rural Angolans, and only rural Angolans. This bank is supported by an enormous grant from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and offers these free solutions as a way to spur the local, developing economy. The name is interesting in and of itself, as "Philanthrocapital" is short for philanthrocapitalism, a portmanteau of the words philanthropy and capitalism. The novel concept is to generate economic activity through benevolent and charitable origins. By subsidizing the local Angolan economy, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hopes to give the rural population the jolt they need to eventually be a self-supporting economic entity. Only time will tell, but so far so good! Back to you, News Desk!

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
