Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I'm imagining that I've found something completely safe to colour the water with. In every large city in the world, agents add food colouring the the water supply. Everywhere the water pipes run in that city, the water has turned green. The dye breaks down harmlessly over the course of the day. Paler green, and paler, then it's gone.

Meanwhile, air force aeroplane crews from all nations are collaborating on a secret mission - the green water drop. There are still one or two areas where water security is a distant dream, even though the network has been organizing around this objective for a decade now. It's time to break out some hope for those whose lives are a daily grind just to get fresh water to drink.



In rural areas without safe water, where to get water even to drink is a daily struggle, in a growing refugee camp, in an area recently struck with natural disaster, something new is happening. Thousands of bright green parachutes drop from the sky. The parachute material can be used to make condensation stills and the parachute load is a canister of fresh drinking water, fitted with an ergonomic carrying harness.

It's not a solution to the water crisis where they are, but it could mean a day's rest from hauling water. Happy water day, women of the world. Here's to having the opportunity to put your feet up and enjoy a glass of fresh water you didn't have to lug for miles.

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.
