Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I have just watched Hayat Sindi's post on Pop Tech. Her company, Paper Daignostics, offers diagnostic breakthroughs for developing countries and it would seem for developed countries as well.

Dr. Sindi's story is full of courage, intelligence and inspiration for all.

Here is a link to her blog

another to her Pop Tech talk.

The Pop Tech people are all stunning and exciting. There ideas give me hope for the 21st Century. And thank you Evoke for opening this new world.

All the best,

Mrs. Hanson

An amazing lady! Her company Diagnostics for All has a fabulous tool to offer and it is so inexpensive! The video at popwatch was well worth the ten minute watching time. +1 vision to you, Mrs. Hanson. I hope lots of people will watch this video and read about her.

Oh - missed the category label process. Thank you. Had you not heard of her before? This is the first online game I have ever attempted. Except for Harry Potter, Gandolf and an occasional Neil Gaiman novel, I'm not much for wizards/alternate realities. The links to what is going on beyond my little street however and seem the reason to stay a little longer. Thank you, John.

Thanks Mrs. Hanson for sharing this. I didn't know her work, yet, and it is so inspiring. Though her blog is not that updated, interesting infos can be found there. And the video from Pop Tech is just great.
Oh, and remember not to leave whitespaces when tagging your post: write "ACT1" instead of "ACT 1", otherwise the tag will automatically be splitted in two.

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.

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.
