Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

His system of water purification might be one of the most amazing on the market today.
I know many will pick this solution, but I really like it and was waiting for the water crisis topic to post about it.

An article about the system:

Good choice Kenneth.

FYI - I have emailed Dean Kamen to ask for some more information from Deka on the slingshot system and perhaps lend his weight as a mentor here on EVOKE. As yet I've not had a reply but I remain hopeful!

I hope he'll reply!
He's one of those people who could inspire and help us a lot on Evoke.

I loved it. the idea or recycling the heat is phenomenal.
The only thing I couldn't find was an estimate for a price. see anything?
Comment by Helene Lavertu on March 25, 2010 at 6:00pm
In the text it said it hoped to be less then 2000$... american, i think?
Comment by Omri or something on March 25, 2010 at 6:10pm
That means that if you price water at 20 cents a liter it would take 10 days to pay itself back.
at 2 cents it would take 100 days (or 3 months)
good deal.

Yes $2000 is the plan. However there is a catch. They currently can't sell enough units to be able to generate the economies of scale that bring the price down to that figure. It is significantly higher at present...we need to help solve this!

How? By each buying one at inflated price?
Comment by Helene Lavertu on March 25, 2010 at 7:20pm
Sorry Ben, hard to keep the scepticism, especially in a written message, should have phrased it better, no hard feelings :)
Comment by Omri or something on March 25, 2010 at 7:20pm
Well, if it costs 2000 to make 1000 ltr. of water a day, it would make it cheaper to desalinate water in Israel than what it costs to buy tap water. at 2000$ it would be worth while to buy lots of them.
on the other hand it would be great if they can scale up a little for very high demand.

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

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
