Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

EPISODE 1
GULF OF MEXICO
-He who throws a stone in the market will hit his relative- Yoruba Proverb

PAGE 1

PANEL A

Middle of the Ocean. Sunset. The sea is calm, but it does not have its natural color: it's black. Dead fish appear sporadically on the surface of the water. It can be understood that the black colour is caused by some oil. A ship can be seen in the middle of the ocean.

PANEL B

Two sailors speaking.

SAILOR 1
The oil spill is much worse than what we had expected.

SAILOR 2
You're right. We cannot deal with it any longer, we have to contact the President, and convince him to send an EVOKE.

PANEL C
In the President's office.

PRESIDENT (at the phone..)
Uhm... Yeah. Oh my God!... I think you're right.

PAGE 2

PANEL A
A computer room with high-tech machines. A man is sitting in the middle of the room. It can be understood that he is Alchemy.

TEXT BOX 1
(President speaking through computer). We need your help with the...

PANEL B
Alchemy is smiling, and does not give signs of being worried or surprised.

ALCHEMY
... Oil spill. I know that.

PANEL C

PRESIDENT
How...?

ALCHEMY
I think you'll have to leave this to my team.

PAGE 3

PANEL A
A self-sufficient house in the countryside.

OFF PANEL:
I need your collaboration, Agent Giuseppe.

PANEL B

GIUSEPPE
Ok Alchemy... What? In the Gulf of Mexico?

ALCHEMY
Is that a problem?

PANEL C

GIUSEPPE
No, no problem. It's just that you'll have to give me a bit of time to move from Roletto (to the reader: you'll know where that is if you read my other blog posts) to the Gulf of Mexico.

PANEL D

ALCHEMY
Granted. Gather the rest of the team.

PAGE 3
At the airport. A group of EVOKE agents are preparing to leave.

PANEL A

GIUSEPPE
Nasty business, uh?

SPARKY
Yeah, this is going to be a tough one. Can you imagine? We'll have to stop the oil leaping out of the pump, and we will need to clean that spill that formed in the ocean. How big is it now? 1000, 1500...

PANEL B

GIUSEPPE
Almost 2000 km in diameter. The easy part will be to close the pump. Our robots will do everything we need. The hard part will be re-stabilizing the environment.

PANEL C

JIM
Do you think that those AC-130s will help by blowing oil-eating bacteria across the surface of the water?

PANEL D (close up on Giuseppe)

GIUSEPPE
They must. And they must be quick, as well. We cannot allow the spill to reach the coast.

TEXT-BOX
To be continued...

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***tances 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.

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
