Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

IMAGINE2- 2020? I'm planning for 2022.

I'd be happy to not be eating people at that point, and probably campaigning against it. Bonus points if you can connect the title and that sentence into my reference, post a comment below if you do.

I'd be eating for a healthier America. In simple words: I am not healthy. I am overweight for my height, out of shape for my age, and probably on the verge of developing a chronic disease. This is not an easy question for me to answer, however hypothetical it may be. To answer the question in a very non-specific way: Something healthier than what I'm eating now. I do not know what I should eat.

I find myself a hypocrite. An entire ocean of information, I have not found(note 'have not found', not 'can not find') a minute's worth of information in regards to this. I believe that the internet is our access to all of the world's shared knowledge. Yet something that should be very important to me remains a gray subject.

Some of the healthiest nations have a very different diet than we do(Go Go Power of the Obvious!) Considering their size, that is no small feat. Japan(Who we'll be helping out the same year as this meal) has a national diet composed mostly of seafood, rice and vegetables. While Japan obviously has exposure to the western diet, I wonder what it is that reinforces their citizens to maintain their own cuisine?

When I look for a meal, I look for the satisfaction it gives me to eat it. It varies on what I'm craving, but a satisfying meal, to me, is something that is filling and tastes good. I'm reasonably open to trying new things, but of the 33 rules/tips of being a social innovator, one of them(paraphrasing here) stated that you should not, or can not, force cultural change. While I am a believer that America is a great melting pot, I don't think 'changing to the Japanese diet' is a step in the right direction. Understanding how and why it and other works is.

On a related note, I heard about a book called Food Rules that sounded interesting. If you read it, comment below on your thoughts on it.

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

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.
