A crash course in changing the world.

Let's have a cup of coffee in ‘Nord-Kivu' near Lake Kivu

This revisit that I posted as comment is being given hereunder due to request from one of my friends:

Well, the province ‘Nord-Kivu' bordering Lake Kivu in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo where the mountain Gorillas are Critically endangered (the highest risk category assigned by the IUCN for wild species; this means that a species numbers have decreased, or will decrease, by 80% within three generations).

Usually slash and burn is a part of shifting cultivation; it consists of cutting and burning of forests or woodlands to create fields for agriculture or pasture for livestock, or for a variety of other purposes. However the danger is maintaining soil quality and crop yields both of which decline over time. Further increase in population and related growing food demand have decreased the forest period of the cycle so much that slash and burn is no longer effective. Conservation agriculture is a good alternative.
Well, DRC (abbreviated form of Democratic Republic of the Congo ), is immensely rich in natural resources and is thought to be the wealthiest country on earth in regards to natural resources. Tantalum mining has destructive impact on the environment and the mountain gorilla. Head of gorilla monitoring is there named Innocent in the Mikeno sector.
John Kasaona was born and raised in the Kunene Region of Namibia, John grew up with a father who “poached” wildlife to put food on the table. He remains deeply committed to the development of communities through their conservancies.
Wildlife tourism is a souce of livelihood of local people of Africa. However, in a bad year, such as 2008, when tourists stop coming, revenue dries up for the local communities.
Conservation Agriculture means reduced/minimum tillage, retention of crop residues and crop diversification.
Biopiracy is a term used to describe situations where corporations from the developed world claim ownership of, or otherwise take unfair advantage of, the genetic resources and traditional knowledge and technologies of developing countries.
Biodiversity matters to the hungry and malnourished , to the impoverished, to the victims of wars and natural disasters and to one and all.
Terra preta is a term used to describe the rich, dark soils of the Amazon basin that were enriched with charcoal, organic matter and other amendments. years of adding composted biomass and charcoal can greatly improve the fertility of soil – giving some credence to claims that the addition of biochar can increase crop yields up to 17%. And then of course there are the carbon sequestration benefits of terra preta.
Usually children are first enrolled by his relative in the CNDP (National Congress of the Defence of the People). It seems a perpetual vicious cycle of self destruction.

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

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.
