Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

It has long been my dream to be a mad scientist when I grow up. That's right folks - I want the lab, the white coat, the endless piles of folders, full of research doc**ents and notes. Specifically, I want go into neuroscience. So, ideally, in 10 years I will have finished my bajillion years of schooling and will be actively answering questions and solving problems that have to do with our brains AND how our brains interact with the world (if they do at all - I'm not done exploring that part yet). Ideally, the work I do in the future will tell us a bit a lot more about how our minds work. I plan to take on some big mysteries.

Haha, best of luck...I also want to become a mad scientist, I am half way there, still working on the 'scientist' part :)

Nice! I am in a similar boat. The 'scientist' part should come into play soon, once I save enough money for school. Best of luck to you as well. :)

Well then, it's a pleasure to see another student of Neuroscience here! I'll keep you in mind when I run across pertinent links.

I LOVE the mad scientist idea! One of my all time favorite quotes is by the Dalai Lama. He talks about the mind having the ability to shape the mind, itself. That it is seemingly impossible for the mind to be the subject and object of study simultaneously, yet that is the only way it can be. And that the only thing capable of shaping the mind, is in fact, the mind.

Stick to it! I am of the education field and we draw quite a bit from the field of neuroscience. I look forward to hearing of your brilliance in the future!

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.
