Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.


The city of Detroit is facing a number of challenges. The city has a very high unemployment rate. Detroit has lost a lot of its population and thus its tax base has been seriously depleted. The public school system is in a shambles. Other big city problems such as crime, drugs etc., also exist. While the situation appears bleak, if not hopeless, there exists a possibility for the implementation of an Evoke which would address many of the above problems.

Outcomes from this Evocation.

Re-establish as many single proprietorship business’s as possible, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, bicycle repair shops etc.

Eliminating all national bank branches in the neighborhoods leaving the national
banks to work only with their industrial customers. The banks would be replaced
with community banks.

Institute a think tank that focusing on technical and social innovation.

Create an alternative housing industry that will specialize on creative housing
solutions for the homeless as well as affordable student housing.

Institute a city wide food program that will reduce Detroit’s reliance on outside food

Implementation for the Evocation

Stage 1

Homeless will be screened and selected to work on the community gardens

Building expert will work with the city on site selection for small intentional communities.

In addition, the Building expert will also work with Detroit schools vocational program in order to start producing tiny homes.

During the summer break students will be recruited as Evoke trainees. (for fall and winter semesters.)

The H/P will work with Wayne county services for selection of produce to be grown in the community gardens.

The IT specialist will begin a viral campaign in order to manufacture the need for community banks and to promote the Detroit Cheers (script) program.

The Business lead will work with the remaining Detroit business’s on setting up franchise training.

Stage 2

A new company will re-purpose old rail cars that will be turned into mobile grocery stores. Other cars will be converted to duplex apartments used for housing the homeless and also affordable student housing. This company will also be in charge of R&D of the Hexayurt project. The company will also produce tiny homes as well.

Detroit Public Schools will work in conjunction with Michigan State University in the implementation of the Evoke training. Serious Gaming methodology will be used.

Detroit City Council will work on reducing the barriers discouraging companies from establishing a presence in the city.

Stage 3

The mobile stores will give way to permanent local stores

With increased tax revenue Detroit will improve its public transportation.

Much of the agriculture will be moved to the river allowing for new construction.

Grant Money.

It is not the intent of this Evocation to vie for any grant money. I would much prefer the start up money to go to an agent located in an area where the money will go further.

this sounds like a very productive evokation, and an interesting combination of gaming, education applied services and technologies, and infrastructure building to help improve Detroit. I hope you succeed with your plans. good evoking!

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

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.
