Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

OK, I've been guilty this bank holiday weekend of not eating that healthily, but I have massively improved my own approach to food since getting Jamie Oliver's 'Ministry of Food' book a couple of years ago. It gave me the confidence to cook, and I have not looked back. Many of the meals are quite quick to prepare, and I now pick fresh foods as opposed to the majority of my food being supermarket pre-packaged stuff. To take some action this week, I'm going to buy a copy of his book and send it to a friend of mine who really doesn't cook very much. He lives less than a mile from me so he's pretty local. He also doesn't have great cooking facilities- just a couple of gas rings, and, as of this week, a microwave oven. However, with my help, I hope to get him cooking a little more- and to re-spark my own interest in cooking. I'll let you know how it goes.

There's also a great Jamie Oliver I-phone app. I've changed my status on Evoke to urge everyone to do a bit of home cooking, and hopefully that's a start. It's not huge, but it's a beginning.

In the meantime, does anyone have any advice on herbs/ veg that I can grow in a window box in my London flat at this time of year? I don't have a garden, but if there's something low maintenance I can grow, I'd love to get involved. Please post suggestions below..

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

Changes to Charleston
